On Wednesday evening, a gang of hundreds of pro-Hamas protesters surrounded and attempted to storm the Democratic National Committee building in Washington, D.C.
Things quickly devolved into a riot, with at least six USCP officers injured. In the end, a single arrest was made. Apparently, that one guy did a lot of damage. Am I making my sarcasm too obvious?
In response, Democrats decried the attack. That includes Rep. Brad Sherman, who was part of the contingent evacuated from the DNC once the doors were cleared. He mentions that the rioters were trying to break into the building and pepper-spraying police officers. The second post in this thread is most revealing, though.

Thankful to the police officers who stopped them and for helping me and my colleagues get out safely. (1/2) https://t.co/tYVCK3o0YA
Here’s what Sherman doesn’t want to face as he tries to deflect to Republicans: He and his party created these maniacs. They made a deal with the devil, supporting antisemites like Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Cori Bush, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Instead of speaking out against their growing influence, people like Sherman stood by, content to use the boom in popularity on the deranged far-left to win elections.
What did Democrats think would happen? Did they really think they could control the lunatics in their midst? Did they think members of “the squad” were kidding when they started espousing communist ideals and talking about America as if they were mullahs in Iran?
Let me make it clear for Sherman. Those rioters trying to break into the DNC are not secret conservatives lashing out in the hope that they help Republicans. They are full-throated, far-left Democrats who wouldn’t pull the lever for a GOP candidate if their lives depended on it. They are members of Sherman’s party, and the cowardice of him and his cohorts is why they exist in real numbers.
On that point, Rep. Mike Collins set the record straight.
Say it again for those in the back who didn’t hear and are still confused. The violent mobs terrorizing America are supporters of Democrats. If Sherman truly cared about that, he’d stand up for what’s right and pointedly denounce what’s going on and who is causing it. Instead, he chose the path of passive-aggressive partisanship, snarking about Republicans, and the results will continue to be predicable. Feed the alligator, and get eaten by the alligator. It’s not a difficult concept.
