If It Weren't For Double Standards

A mob of angry activists go and deface a public street, they painted that ‘Black Lives Matter,’ and the mayor said,”That’s fine with me.’ But when someone spoke of baby lives they would not let them have their say, when some sought to say ‘Blue Lives Matter,’ the authorities dragged them away. They’re supposed to serve rights equally, but only will if you are their thrall, if it weren’t for double standards The left would have no standards at all. Another group of rioters decided they’re going to trespass, throw rocks, pull guns, threaten the home, so the owner arms up mighty fast. Confronts them with a gun in hand, to protect his life and his home, as the law of his state permits, a well-known and established fact. Then corrupt D.A.s go charge him, not the thugs who sought their downfall, if it weren’t for double standards the left would have no standards at all. Then there are the ‘protestors’ themselves in the midst of a pandemic, a cess-pool for disease to spread, but lefty mayors are just fine with it! As if having a left-wing cause grants someone an immunity, we can’t go to churches or school, but these bastards can riot free? If you try to counter-protest they blame you for not heeding their call, if it weren’t for double standards the left would have no standards at all. And I don’t think we can forget what happened back at Charlottesville, when the media crowed for weeks after a young leftist was killed. But at least thirty people now dave been killed by the rioters, Driven by extremist Marxists, yet the media seems undisturbed. It fits not the lefty narrative, so media seems no need to bawl, if it weren’t for double standards the left would have no standards at all. When ANTIFA attacks people’s cars they get mad when those folks drive through, when others were dragged out and beaten, quite openly and in plain view. They get mad at the fact that these rioters were declared terrorists, yet ignore their cities burning down, they allow these crimes to persist. Won’t do the jobs they swore to do, effective action they just stall, their power means more than your lives, the left has no standards at all.
