– The League for Sportsmen, & Defense unequivocallycondemns the recent attempted assassination of in Butler, Pennsylvania, yesterday. This heinous act represents a direct assault not only on an individual but also on the very principles that underpin our democratic society.

Former President Donald Trump was injured in an at a campaign rally yesterday in Butler, Pennsylvania. One attendee at the rally was declared dead at the scene, killed by a stray bullet. Two attendees remain in critical condition after they were admitted to the hospital.

Despite a massive and unprecedented nationwide manhunt for rioters (or anyone, violent or not) involved in the January 6 Capitol siege, not really being paralleled by anything similar for violent rioters, FBI Director insists the FBI isn't being tougher on the Jan. 6 rioters.

However, many observers familiar with the Bureau's aggressive investigation of the storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6 see a huge disparity with its and the Biden Department of Justice (DOJ's) more lackluster response to violence and unrest by Black Lives Matter (BLM) rioters across the country during the spring and summer of 2020.

This is especially true concerning the months-long attacks by BLM, and other extremists on the U.S. federal courthouse and officers in Portland, Oregon, and the violent attacks on local and federal police and property across from the White House in May and June 2020.

The latter violent riot in D.C., I personally witnessed and reported on at the time.

Politico reports:

Speaking in California, Wray offered his most detailed public rebuttal yet to critiques of the bureau put forward in recent months by some Republican lawmakers and other allies of former President , as well as attorneys for those charged with crimes related to the Capitol riot.

“We have one standard, which is: I don't care whether you're upset about an election or upset at our criminal justice system,” Wray said during an appearance at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley on Monday night. “Whatever it is you're upset about, there's a right way and a wrong way to express your being upset in this country and violence — violence against law enforcement, destruction of property — is not it. …That's what the rule of law is about.”

Many wish this were true.

The FBI chief added:

We have in both instances opened hundreds of investigations — in both. We've made hundreds of arrests — in both. We've used nearly all 56 of our field offices, including our joint terrorism task forces — in both. We've used investigative publicity, most wanted posters, and things like that — in both. We're aggressively pursuing both.

Yet many remain unconvinced. Federal judge Trevor McFadden, for one, has publicly criticized the DOJ for being far too lenient toward violent BLM rioters who caused property damage in Washington in the summer of 2020. Politico notes McFadden said at a sentencing hearing for a Capitol riot defendant last October:

I think the U.S. Attorney's Office would have more credibility if it was evenhanded in its concern about riots and mobs in this city.

In a December ruling, McFadden also expressed astonishment that the federal government had dropped many of the charges against rioters in Portland, Ore., including some accused of assaulting federal officers:

Rarely has the Government shown so little interest in vigorously prosecuting those who attack federal officers.

The judge did note there were some differences between the federal courthouse attacks and the Capitol siege, since the Capitol complex was fully occupied when the mob stormed in on Jan. 6, while most of the Portland protests directed at the federal courthouse there took place late at night.

McFadden, a Trump appointee, wrote: “Members of Congress cowered under chairs while staffers blockaded themselves in offices, fearing physical attacks from the rioters.”

What the judge failed to recall is that the Secret Service had to rush President Trump into the secure underground bunker at the White House at one point on May 31, 2020, because they feared the presidential compound might be overrun by BLM thugs after some had breached the temporary fencing nearby.

The BLM riots and Capitol riot have many more similarities than many want to admit. And the FBI and DOJ appear to be only treating them superficially similarly. (RELATED: Biden's DOJ Escalating Prosecutions by Charging Some Capitol Rioters With ‘Seditious Conspiracy')

    Right! The FBI lies more than most of the criminals they arrest. They also think we are stupid. If they are arresting BLM maggots, show us the proof.

    When Biden kept Wray as head of the FBI, you knew he was a left wing plant and he was Comey all over again.

    Wray is a total liar and the FBI is the agency people should talking about when they demand defunding. To prove Wray is a liar (or as a consummate comparer of apples and oranges), how many of the BLM/ANTIFA thugs and other rioters looters arsonists, etc. that Wray says the FBI has arrested are still in jail? None or close to it I’ll bet. But how many of the non-violent protesters arrested in connection with the Pelosi/FBI orchestrated January 6th debacle where an unarmed protester was killed by a Capitol Police Lieutenant are still in jail having been denied habeas corpus multiple times? The vast majority I’ll bet. And Wray is trying to pass his BS off that they are being treated the same!
    I knew Trump should have fired Wray’s lying butt when he proved telling the truth was an ability he did not possess.

    The FBI LIES AGAIN!

    The only disturbances, insurrection and crimes committed at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C, on Wednesday, Jan. 6, 2021 were planned, staged and carried out by the seditious DNC/FBI/DC Capitol Police/ANTIFA crisis actors. …like FBI plant Ray Epps!
