“Burn it down” anti-racism agitators have done an excellent job so far. They’ve almost certainly persuaded tens if not hundreds of thousands of American voters to consider the unthinkable and re-elect Donald Trump, not because they admire that animal or believe he’s out for anyone but his own criminal self but because of LAWNORDER…because he’s committed to stopping the daily chaos — burnings, beatings, goadings, shootings, smashed windows, arrests, tear gas.
But the mob has to push harder. A few cities — Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles — won’t do it. They need to ignite all the major burghs. A huge dark cloud needs to spread over the entire nation. The scent of rage and violence has to fill everyone’s nostrils.
Do wokester militants want Trump to win or don’t they? Because half measures won’t accomplish that.
Quoting rightwing N.Y. Post columnist Michael Goodwin is a deeply uncomfortable thing for me, but portions of an 8.27 column (“Joe Biden finally breaks silence on urban violence, too late“) are hard to argue with.
“Democrats made what I believe to be a historic error in failing to say a single word — a single word — about the national urban crisis during their convention last week,” he wrote. “They said nothing about the violence and the tent cities of homeless popping up everywhere, yet…frequently criticized the police and romanced protestors as a new wave of selfless heroes.
“But what the nation is witnessing is not protest and it is certainly not heroic.”
CNN’s Don Lemon said more or less the same thing the night before last.
“I think Democrats are ignoring this problem, are hoping that it will go away,” Lemon mentioned at the beginning of his Tuesday night show. “And it’s not going to go away.”
Fellow CNN anchor Chris Cuomo had earlier stated that the street fighting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, ignited by Jacob Blake’s senseless shooting, represents a “Rorschach test for the entire country”.
“So the problem is not going to be fixed by then, but what they can do, and I think maybe Joe Biden may be afraid to do it. I’m not sure, maybe he won’t, maybe he is. [But] he’s got to address it. He’s got to come out and talk about it.”
Biden finally addressed the chaos yesterday, but it took him long enough. And he can’t let it go at that.
Goodwin: “That’s the leftwing media in a nutshell. They supported the protestors until it started to backfire on their candidate. Now it has to stop or Trump will be re-elected. Not that it has to stop because it’s destructive and leading to deaths. Only because it’s bad for their candidate.”
