In September, @APStylebook (AP’s rules book for Journos) tweeted that “focusing on rioting and property destruction rather than underlying grievance has been used in the past to stigmatize broad swaths of people.”

If a non-lib wrote such a thing, Twitter would ban the person.
The cream of journalism standards (AP) told its staffers in September (4 months ago) that focusing on rioters and not the underlying grievance is a tool to stigmatize people. AP (with Dem lawmakers and CNNers) legitimized violence. Result? Some om “the other side” will join.
In Sep, the AP said that rioting and destruction of property should be called “unrest” and that focusing on the riots without focusing on the underlying grievance is a way to stigmatize people.

4 months later, storming gov buildings is not just a riot. It’s treasonous sedition.
