The political chasm here in the United States continues to grow in these late stages of 2020, with violent clashes becoming a near-weekly occurrence on the streets of our great nation.
It is an undeniably dark time for Americans, as we witness ever-more heated melees between the far left and the far right being broadcast into our homes by the mainstream media, who are exploiting this painful reality to line their own pockets.
More worrisome still are the accusations being made by Republicans in the House of Representatives stating their belief that the Mayor of Washington DC showed political bias in her policing of protests where such horrific incident of violence occurred.
The top Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are demanding Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney to hold a hearing to examine the violence against supporters of President Trump after the “Million MAGA March” in Washington, D.C. last weekend.
They are also calling for answers from D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, claiming her “silence” on the issue is part of a “broader pattern of viewpoint discrimination.”
House Oversight Committee Ranking Member James Comer, R-Ky., Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., and Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, penned a letter to Maloney, D-N.Y., after more than 20 people were arrested last weekend amid violent clashes between Trump supporters and counterprotesters in D.C.
The language of the letter was stark, to say the least.
“We respectfully request a hearing on the violence directed at supporters of President Trump on November 14, 2020,” they wrote to Maloney. “These supporters were exercising their First Amendment right to peacefully assemble within the District of Columbia.”
They added: “The failure of the city’s leaders to afford basic protections to persons who may hold different political viewpoints from their own appears to be another concerning example of viewpoint discrimination in the District.”
During the rallies, which occurred over the weekend, Trump supporters were routinely harassed by leftist mobs who doused them with water, verbally abused them, and snatched Trump and MAGA paraphernalia from the crowd to be destroyed later.
