Watch: Gutfeld Deliver A Fiery Rant On Capitol And Hypocritical Media: America's 'Eyes Are Open!'
I think it's safe to say that Fox News host Greg Gutfeld is fed up with the hypocritical media. While expressing his personal outrage with rioters who overtook the Capitol Wednesday, Gutfeld called members of the mainstream media "hypocrites in hair and makeup who pick and choose their favorite protesters."Gutfeld was referring to the coverage, or the Capitol versus the lack of coverage, and even promotion, violent riots carried out by Antifa and BLM supporters.
"The Five" host delivered a passionate 4-minute tirade this week about the importance of condemning all political violence.
"Vandalism and looting, whether it's in D.C. or Portland, SoHo, Kinosha, Minneapolis, Seattle – it's all bad no matter who's doing it," Gutfeld stated. "So we must remain consistent. That's what makes us different from the rest. We don't play favorites with mobs. The other side does, but we don't."
"It's hard for me personally because I was outraged over violence every single day this summer. I saw my neighborhood trashed," Gutfeld admitted. The TV host then proclaimed that he must "condemn" the unrest at the Capitol "equally because we aren't them. We are better than them."
"To this point, I heard a pundit say that 'even Republicans are outraged by this behavior.' Duh! Republicans are always outraged by bad behavior because they consistently, consistently embrace law and order and condemn the destruction of private and public property," Gutfeld poignantly explained.
"I do believe the Capitol is a sacred place," he declared. "I also believe that the guy who invested his life savings in a small business, to him, that was a sacred place, too. So it's consistency."
"By pointing out Republicans, or non-liberals like me, who are equally outraged by this behavior, what you're doing is you're pointing out also the inconsistency, right? The lack of Democrats who weren't doing this when our cities were in flame. That pisses me off," he vehemently exclaimed.
Gutfeld slammed the transgressors who stormed the Capitol by saying that the "non-left" of Republicans, Libertarians, and conservates are "supposed to be the gate against the barbarians," but on Wednesday in D.C., "We looked like the barbarians."
"But you will not see Republicans bailing out those who were arrested. See, that is a vital contrast and Americans know this," he continued.
Gutfeld is citing situations over the summer where politicians like Kamla Harris and Hollywood celebs raised funds to bail out violent rioters who burned small businesses to the ground following the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
"Americans do not need lectures from hypocrites in hair and makeup who pick and choose their favorite protesters," Gutfeld blistered liberal media pundits. "So I'm glad Democrats are finally outraged by this disgusting behavior. Join the club! I've been there for a year! I do not play favorites with mobs."

Gutfeld explained that Republicans and non-liberals need to have their voices heard but because the media scrutinizes every move a Trump supporter makes, they must rise above the violent tactics of the left. He also issued a challenge to former vice president Joe Biden.
"If you want to unify this country, Joe Biden, you can't sit there and act like the tough guy now," Gutfeld emphatically stressed. "You've got to deal with a half a country that feels that they have been disenfranchised, that they've been disrespected, that they have been lied to by a media, they've been marginalized by a media, they've been made to feel small by a media. Their eyes are open."
"This is a red-pilled America," he trumpeted.
"Yesterday was a bubble that burst, but it's a sign of a much, much, much larger problem, and it's going to come back in four years," Gutfeld warned. "It's going to come back if you don't deal with it, whether it is transparency in elections, voter I.D. – just being honest might be a start."
"And stop calling these people rubes and denigrating them because they aren't cool elites, because that's part of this, too," Gutfeld concluded his fiery monologue.
