    When you point out that the rioters in the Pacific NW often targeted
    a federal building, it is again defended by "but they didn't manage
    to get in."

    So it is more OK if you want to storm a federal building but don't
    actually make it in I guess.

    Considering the attempts at blocking off exits and burning a police
    station, that was pretty bad... As was launching commercial fireworks
    into said federal courthouse in an effort to burn it down. I seem to
    recall a federal detention facility was also attacked, one of the
    attackers shot/killed though.

    Of course that doesn't include hundreds of police injuries, iirc over a
    dozen police deaths, hundreds of civilian deaths, some brutal, over ten thousand citizen victims, hundreds held captive in chaz/chop, thousands
    of rape incidents (who knew blm were rapist incels), billions in
    property damage, and so much more.

    There were a handful of violent actors in the capitol riots (during
    daylight), I wouldn't exactly call it an insurrection though.

    As to not getting in... maybe because one was proactively defended, and
    the other, they opened the damned doors for.
