TERRELL: ‘Domestic terrorism is domestic terrorism, regardless of if it’s left or right’

“Democrats and left-wingers will judge a terrorist not based off criminal conduct, but by skin color.”

150 violent protesters took to the streets in Portland Wednesday, vandalizing the state Democratic Party headquarters and a federal U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building. 

According to authorities, six people have been charged in connection with the riot. 

While many would consider these rioters “domestic terrorists,” the mainstream media calls them “protesters.” 

Here are some of the headlines: 

“Four people charged in Portland after demonstrators vandalized federal ICE building, Democratic Party state headquarters” – CNN 

“Small Inauguration Day protests in Portland, Seattle lead to about a dozen arrests” – USA Today 

“Oregon Democratic Party offices vandalized amid post-inauguration protests” – NBC News 

Meanwhile, here are some of the headlines describing the Capitol riots: 

“Breaking News: Domestic terrorists violently storm nation’s capitol in Trump-influence coup attempt” – Milwaukee Independent

“How the news media covered domestic terrorism on Capitol Hill” – CNN 

“Among the Insurrectionists at the Capitol” – The New Yorker 

“Capitol Insurrectionists Said They Were Following Trump’s Orders” – Huff Post  

Leo Terrell joined Geraldo Rivera on Bill Hemmer Reports Thursday to blast democrats for creating this double standard, saying that “domestic terrorism is domestic terrorism.” 

“I noticed how Geraldo’s temperature is very down on this. When we had the Capitol riots, he was outraged. Outraged,” Terrell said, “but there is a passiveness in the rioting that’s going on in the Northwest.” 

“You see, Bill, I think what’s  happening is this. Democrats and left-wingers will judge a terrorist not based off criminal conduct, but by skin color. But I’m looking for the outrage. Where’s all the outrage from the left regarding what’s going on now? I mean, I don’t understand it.” 

Terrell argued that the violence at the Capitol and the violence in Portland have one major thing in common: both are criminal conduct. 

“It’s criminal conduct. They’re terrorists. Bill, what’s the difference? I ask you what’s the difference,” he said. 

He urged that regardless of party affiliation, domestic terrorism is domestic terrorism. 

“Domestic terrorism is domestic terrorism, regardless of it’s left or right,” he said. “But the silence on the left, there is no outrage and that’s what disappoints Trump supporters. They’re mad because there’s a double standard in this country based on race and skin color.” 

“As a civil rights attorney, I’m embarrassed,” he added. 

Terrell called out democrats for creating a double standard and urged that the law should be applied equally, no matter if it’s on the left or the right.  

“The difference is simply this. If you are on the right,  you’re an extremist. If you’re the left, you are a protester and that’s disingenuous to disequate the two,” he said. “The two are the same and the law should be applied equally.”

    As far as I’m concerned, violence isn’t the only form of terrorism. Censoring a particular group of citizens qualifies. So does singling out a particular political party, like the IRS did, when it raided the businesses of those who donated to the Republican party.

    Agreed. These are frightening times. I never believed that free speech would be censored in America. Please keep speaking out.
