The far-left media cover the destructive riots fomenting in American cities as “peaceful protests,” though they are marked by arson, theft and violence. Police officers have been attacked, hit with cinder blocks brought in on pallets to smash store windows, as we witnessed in Scottsdale Fashion Square on May 30, where millions of dollars in damage caused a shutdown for nearly two weeks.
Violence, now including police shootings, has essentially been given a pass within cities run by Democrats who turn a blind eye to the mayhem. In fact, prior to the canonization of career criminal George Floyd, the harassment of GOP members of congress was condoned by Democrat U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) and her ilk. Waters, who mysteriously became a multi-millionaire while in congress, urged an assembled crowd to harass members of the President’s staff and cabinet wherever they might be, “in restaurants, department stores or at the gas station.”
Brock Simmons writing for Gateway Pundit, exposes “Pro-Antifa DA Drops Attempted Murder and Arson Charges For Terrorist Who Hurled Massive Molotov Cocktail At Police.” His article is specifically about Portland, Oregon, but countless cities from Seattle, Washington and Kenosha, Wisconsin to Chicago, Illinois, Louisville, Kentucky and points beyond are impacted by the violence. Americans are not even safe in their own homes as we witnessed in St. Louis, when BLM rioters broke down an iron gate in a private community to harass homeowners.
Until recently Democrats were content to ignore the anarchy in American cities, pretending it didn’t exist. Now, concerned that their feeble presidential candidate Joe Biden is not adequately addressing the widespread chaos, they have acknowledged the rioting, deceptively blaming it on President Trump.
Given the vicious barrage they unleashed against Trump at their convention, if Democrats actually believed that the president is responsible for anarchists attacking police and torching buildings, it would be their major talking point.
It remains to be seen if weak Joe Biden, who has been holed up in his basement, will be able to debate President Trump. The first debate is scheduled for Tuesday, September 29, 2020. Others will take place Thursday, October 15, and Thursday, October 22. The Vice Presidential debate will be held Wednesday, October 7, 2020. They will all be televised 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. ET. (6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. AZ time).
