For the past three months, Democrat mayors, governors, and their presidential nominee have sat idly by and let America’s streets be burned, looted, and desecrated. They failed to condemn the rioters and looters that emerged in the wake of George Floyd’s death, instead referring to them as merely “mostly peaceful protests.”
Their parrots in the mainstream media regurgitated the Democrats’ talking points and then looked the other way, failing to accurately report on the truth about the riots. But make no mistake: these violent demonstrations were the acts of Left-wing radicals, and the Democrats gave them cover. I am going to go out on a limb and say that none of those hooligans are going to vote for President Trump. Just a hunch.
Despite months of silence and an entire convention that failed to condemn the Left-wing mob, the Democrats are shifting the blame to, you guessed it, President Donald J. Trump.
Of course, all the ills on the planet are the fault of the Big Bad Orange Man. This is such a repetitive and lazy argument, but that doesn’t stop the Democrats from blaming Trump.
The truth is the Democrats know they screwed up by not condemning the violence or doing anything to stop it—and the polls reflect this. Law and order is now one of the top five issues that voters are concerned about, and this benefits Donald Trump and hurts Democrats. Trump has shown that he will take steps to protect America’s streets from the mob violence, and the Dems have not.
Finally realizing his strategic mistake, Joe Biden is trying to play catch up. He has finally meekly condemned some of the violence, however, he is naturally still blaming President Trump while making no mention of Democrat mayors and governors.
On a speech in Pittsburgh, Biden took aim at Trump, saying, “does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is reelected? We need justice in America. And we need safety in America. We are facing multiple crises – crises that, under Donald Trump, keep multiplying.
He may believe mouthing the words law and order makes him strong, but his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows you how weak he is.”
That is called a red herring. Biden is blaming Trump supporters for the violence, which is absurd. A few Trump supporters show up during the BLM and ANTIFA horror show, and it’s the fault of Trump supporters? It’s too late, Joe. You had your chance to show true leadership, but you were too sleepy to realize the right thing to do.
Mayor Pete Buttigieg joined on the bash Trump train when he said, “The simple reality is that we are seeing more and more chaos and violence under the Trump presidency, and there’s no reason to expect that it would get any different or better if he were reelected. This is very much characteristic of living in Donald Trump’s America, and I think we’re going to see more and more of it as long as he’s in charge.”
Even CNN is beginning to freak out and realize that maybe allowing America’s cities to burn isn’t a good political strategy. The sage Don Lemmon, in all his infinite wisdom, acknowledged the truth of the matter. The polls show that the Democrats are losing ground on the law and order issue.
Gee, you don’t say, Don.
Lemon said. “It’s showing up in the polling. It’s showing up in focus groups. … It is the only thing right now that is sticking.”
“The problem is not gonna be fixed by then [the election] but what they can do — and I think … Joe Biden may be afraid to do it. I’m not sure. Maybe he won’t; maybe he is — he’s got to address it,” said Lemon. “He’s got to come out and talk about it.”
The Democrats are putting politics ahead of public safety, and the only reason they are now paying lip service to law and order is because the polls have moved against them. However, instead of showing that they can provide courageous leadership, they have resorted to a feckless condemnation of the mob, instead of a full-throated denunciation.
Good luck trying to play catch up, Dems. President Trump beat you to the finish line.
