Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic exposed the double-standard that critics of Pres. Trump would likely demand if destructive looting and pillaging were being caused by right-wing "patriot militias".

Novoselic posted on his personal Facebook page: The violence, (and not the protests) appear as leftist insurrction. Imagine if so-called "patriot militias" were raising this kind of hell? If this were the case, left wing people would welcome federal intervention. Most Americans want peace in their communities and President Trump spoke to this desire."

Novoselic distinguishes between the recent protests around the U.S. demanding justice for George Floyd, killed while in police custody after arrest by Minneapolis police, and the "violence" caused by looting and destruction of stores and buildings.

In a previous portion of the Facebook post, Novoselic disagreed with Pres. Trump's statement about deploying US military force to cities to stop looting, writing "the president should not be sending troops into states--and he legally might not be able to anyway--nevertheless, his tone in his speech is strong and direct."

He opened his Facebook post by typing, "Wow!! I know many of you can't stand him, however, trump knocked it out of the park with this speech."

Click the following link of what President Trump said on Monday suggesting he'd deploy U.S. military to U.S. cities to curb or confront looting. Trump critics immediately seized on the President's suggestion that he respond with military force and the Presidential limitations involved in the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act.
