BLM caused them to storm the capital.I won't touch "equating", but the two are heavily related. Yesterday doesn't happen w/o what transpired over the summer so it really isn't possible to live in a vacuum where you don't discuss one (or the reaction to one) without the other (or the reaction to the other) anymore. You are also right that what happened yesterday was despicable. As is what happened this summer. You clearly think what happened yesterday is worse, and you are entitled to that, but no one should accuse you of condoning what happened this summer because of that view. Same goes the other way.
