On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld said that the riots in Baltimore reveal the difference between real and fake sympathy.

"You feel real sympathy for the woman watching her place of work destroyed. You feel real sympathy for the anguished veteran watching his city burn," Gutfeld said. "Real sympathy is for the mom trying to pull her son away from a doomed future. She's a bleeping hero."

Gutfeld said that, on the other hand, fake sympathy is attributing the riots to rage, despite the glee, the laughter and the age of the rioters.

"Fake sympathy sells the myth of a city that snaps when the attacks were actually planned. Fake sympathy is a media indulging grievance, then acting shocked when everything burns," Gutfeld said. "Fake sympathy are the politicians demanding more cash, as they ignore the underlying crisis. They prefer money over morality."

He asserted that all this sympathy is fake because its purveyors pretend crime is rooted in anger, not opportunity. 

"Anger exists, but those who care don’t torch their town," Gutfeld stated. "They operate within a morality that guides their actions. Good people suddenly don't turn bad."

"So what you saw was no uprising, but the death of sympathy - where 'youngsters,' free of family structure, untethered to consequence - just don't give a damn. Cause they don't have to."
