• How ‘Bout That Transformation! Dems Suddenly Anti-Riot! And Blame Trump for Them!

    Surge Summary: For weeks – including during their Convention – Democrats have said little to nothing against the Leftist riots that have been ravaging American cities. Now, suddenly, Biden and Co. are speaking out – if only tentatively – against the anarchy; and blaming Donald Trump for it. It’s a stunning and bewildering transformation.

    Ever since George Floyd’s death three months ago, the left has turned America’s cities into arenas for violence as mobs have preyed on citizens and destroyed local businesses.

    While this happened, virtually every Democrat politician and media commentator, including Juan Williams and Donna Brazile on Fox News, told us we were crazy.  They insisted that the protests were peaceful.  It was unbelievable to hear them say that with straight faces.

    Major networks downplayed the violence out of Portland, often refusing to show video of what has happening night after night after night.  But in the last ten days, something short of miraculous has happened.

    The Democrats held their convention, and the public wondered why no Democrat mentioned what they were reading about in their local papers and watching on their local news.

    Then the Republican National Convention took place.  Speaker after speaker vowed to confront the violence and hold the negligent Democrats accountable.  Polls came out showing a tightening race.

    Some notable liberals, such as Don LemonBill Maher and Michael Moore, sounded the alarm, warning that the riots were hurting the Democrats.

    I can’t say with certainty what happened next, but over the weekend the word went out.  The same people who told you that there were no riots, that it was just Donald Trump making up things to frighten you, now insist that the riots are being caused by Donald Trump.

    Joe Biden went so far as to condemn the rioting and he challenged Donald Trump to do so too.  WHAT?!  Trump has been condemning the rioting since it began!

    So Democrats suddenly realized they were losing on the law and order issue, and in the blink of an eye, they are now trying to change the narrative.  There are riots on the streets, and the left says it’s all Donald Trump’s fault.

    Don’t fall for it, my friends!

    This is coming from the party that promoted a complete lie about Russian collusion for more than two years.  It’s coming from the party that impeached the president over a phone call.

    And while they were conducting that fake impeachment, the coronavirus arrived in America.  But they were too busy trying to politically kill the president to do anything useful about that.

    This is coming from the movement that wants to defund the police.

    It is coming from the party whose mayors in Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, New York City, Seattle and Washington, D.C., have not only made no real effort to stop the rioting but have attempted to legitimatize what was going on in their streets because it is about social justice after all.

    As for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, who now think the riots are terrible and all Trump’s fault, perhaps they should call a staff meeting and tell their aides to stop donating to groups (here and here) that are bailing out rioters as fast as they are arrested so they can loot and riot again the next night.
