Rep. Armstrong is calling out Democrats regarding the protesters in cities like Seattle and Portland who are displaying acts of violence at times. He says, “Why would we have to negotiate a ceasefire with a peaceful protest?” He makes a great point. If it's a peaceful protest, then there is no crossfire nor negotiations to stop the crossfire.
Not all protesters are exhibiting violence, but there's a lot who are and that's the problem. All sorts of weapons, fire, and even bringing power-tools to cut fences has been seen in videos.
