Motives and Differences

I've seen people comparing the terrible events of yesterday's insurrection at the US Capitol to the Black Lives Matter movement.

There is an immense difference between a group of minority people fighting to receive basic equal rights, justice, and treatment and a group of domestic terrorists staging a violent insurrection at the Capitol of our country. The distinction between the motives of these two groups can not be compared.

So no, I do not condemn the actions of the first group yet strongly condemn the second. Taking a stand FOR equality will never weigh on my conscience and neither will taking a stand AGAINST treason.
