Miranda Devine Blames Trump Extremists Storming The Capitol On Black Lives Matter

Australian conservative commentator Miranda Devine has spoken out about the Trump extremists who stormed the Capitol building in Washington D.C.

The American-based journalist didn't take aim at the MAGA die-hard supporters who broke into the Senate floor or clashed with police.

Instead, Devine blamed the outpouring of violence on the Black Lives Matter protests that raged across America last year.

She wrote: "I guess we really shouldn't be surprised at what's happening in the Capitol after the way leftist violence was condoned most of last year. You let the genie out of the bottle, there's no telling where it goes."

While others have made the same comparisons on social media, it's worth noting several of the BLM demonstrations that turned violent were a result of authorities using force to disperse largely peaceful protests.

The Guardian reports there were nearly 1,000 instances of police brutality recorded during the anti-racism rallies.

Devine has retweeted several posts from lawmakers about the need for the protestors to be peaceful and to evacuate the Capitol.

She did issue another message, saying: "America's enemies around the world will be enjoying these images. God knows the ramifications. But the stock market surges on."

The violence that has erupted in Washington DC today saw Trump supporters invade the Capitol Building, forcing the evacuation of the politicians within, as well as the shooting of a woman. The woman has since died, according to NBC.

However, he did tell his supporters to go home peacefully.

In a video posted to his Twitter, the President said: "I know your pain, I know you're hurt, we had an election that was stolen from us, it was a landslide election and every knows it, especially the other side, but you have to go home now, we have to have peace.

"We have to have law and order, we have to respect our great people in law and order - we don't want anybody hurt."
