You already know that political liberals, especially those in public office and in government bureaucracies, are hypocrites. We all know that. Oh, sure, some of them like to think that they’re intellectually consistent, but they never are. When you dig into the underlying assumptions behind liberal beliefs, they are always based on conflicting and nonsensical assumptions. Yet, they want all of us to live by those same foolish ideas.
But if you needed more proof of liberal hypocrisy, we have a story for you today. See, the Department of Justice announced that they’re going to spend a ridiculous amount of money on a database for prosecuting (truly) mostly peaceful protesters even though, as far as anyone can tell, they haven’t done a single thing to prosecute (truly violent) “mostly peaceful” protesters who are leftists.

The Department of Justice has committed to paying over $6 million to a multinational firm to create a database to host the reams of data prosecutors are gathering in cases against accused participants of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.
Deloitte Financial Advisory Services, LLP was contracted in late May to help develop the database and the government has started transferring a large volume of materials, including tens of thousands of records from the U.S. Capitol Police, prosecutors said in a court filing this week.
“Following the Capitol Breach, the United States recognized that due to the nature and volume of materials being collected, the government would require the use of an outside contractor who could provide litigation technology support services to include highly technical and specialized data and document processing and review capabilities,” prosecutors wrote in the filing, which was submitted in a case against several accused Capitol rioters.
The government will work with Deloitte to process, review, and produce material related to the breach, using various tools to redact certain personal information.
So, let’s see, some people walk into the Capitol (some video indicates that some of those people were let into the Capitol by Capitol Police), they put their feet up on Nancy Pelosi’s desk, one of them steals a wooden podium, not a single firearm is found on any non-law enforcement person in the whole incident, but this calls for a $6.1 million investment in order to prosecute them.
Where is the DOJ’s database to work on the prosecuting of people who destroyed millions of dollars of private property and assaulted numerous people? Oh, that’s not happening. I’ll let you guess why.
