A man was caught throwing Molotov cocktails at the US Capitol Police at Union Station in Washington DC on Wednesday. Union Station, which is located near the Capitol, is the biggest metro and regional station in the area.
The officers involved received minor injuries. A backpack containing two additional bottles of accelerant was later recovered. This is according to the USCP statement, but I noticed something else.
Just some random guy throwing Molotov cocktails as random guys are prone to do. https://t.co/gC9opyIBuF

Let me clarify. Two Molotov cocktails were thrown at the US Capitol Police by a man. This caused injuries to two officers. The USCP immediately responded, defending the man and ensuring that no one was being threatened. How did they know this so quickly? Are they trying to prevent all the pro-abortion protests which have occurred in the wake of Roe v. Wade’s overturning? This doesn’t even sound possible to me.
With a little bit of snarkiness, we are supposed to believe that some random man threw Molotov cocktails toward Capitol Police because that’s what random guys do. This is absurd. Why isn’t this guy’s photo being posted everywhere? Julie Kelly points out that people who took selfies on January 6th are sent to solitary confinement and for years. But this man is only charged with assault. It’s possible that he will get a sweetheart deal, just like the Antifa lawyers who torched the police car in the 2020 riots.
That’s the real issue and the reason why the USCP’s statement seems perplexing. This gives the impression that this nation has two standards of justice. It is obvious.
This happened in our nation’s capital.

Nancy Pelosi’s beer is yours to steal. If you firebomb a police car, you get a reduced sentence. This is not a system that anyone can trust, and that’s a bad thing. Domestic terrorism is dealt with child gloves when it comes from a left-winger. The book is thrown if it’s rightwinger. The book should not be thrown. All domestic terrorist acts should be treated equally. Is this too much to ask?
We’ll probably find out more about the man who tried to kill two US Capitol Police Officers. We might not, but that’s how it goes when an attack isn’t in line with “the narrative”.
