Journalists Accidentally Reveal Left's Double Standard over 'Inciting Violence'

TrĂ© Goins-Phillips : Jan 14, 2021  Faithwire.com

BCN Editor's Note: The hypocrisy is glaring, yet ignored by most on the left, as they no doubt hope the rest of America won't notice. -Aimee Herd, BCN

In addition, Vox editor Laura McGann, Washington Post reporter Aaron Blake, and Politico managing editor Blake Hounshell all wrongly attributed Pelosi's words to Gohmert, suggesting he was calling for "uprisings" ahead of President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration next week...
