Across the U.S., left-wing groups ‘Antifa’ and ‘BLM’ are continuing to disrupt public order following the inauguration of Joe Biden.
In a tweet on Sunday, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) said he expects Democrat lawmakers to condemn the latest looting and rioting in Oregon and Washington State.
As the sun sets 3 days after rioting/burning/looting began in Portland & Seattle I’m still waiting for Pres Biden &other leading Democrats to condemn these outrageous acts. Are they willing to condemn anarchist/Antifa violence?? I’ve condemned violence from both sides

Democrats have been quiet on those attacks while condemning Republicans for protests in Washington D.C. on January 6. At least 20 people were arrested during those riots.
