Here’s what he had to say…
Recently on Fox Business’ “Evening Edit,” Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) announced “We are with the peaceful protesters.”
According to Breitbart, Cassidy stated, “We are with the peaceful protesters. We agree the death of George Floyd should not have happened. But to see this movement, if you will, corrupted by those who seek to kill others does an incredible disservice. We need to ignore the latter two and focus on the first.”
Cassidy then said, “Now, this can be a partnership. The Capitol Police in Washington, D.C., in a sign of solidarity with the peaceful protesters, took a knee yesterday to signal that they did not approve of the death of George Floyd. It was wrong. We all know it. We need to work in common towards a better future. That’s the way to go forward. Condoning, coddling the criminals and the anarchists is terrible for the community…and it’s terrible for the movement to address the brutality and the racism that the peaceful protesters are all about.”
