Democrats Are Freaking Out, And They Should Be; BLM Riots Swaying Kenosha Residents to Vote Trump

Democrats Are Freaking Out, And They Should Be:
The New York Times ran an article Wednesday about how voters in Wisconsin are responding to the riots by switching their support to Donald Trump. This is a very strange thing to see in the progressive Gray Lady. Anybody who follows the paper and its politics closely knows exactly what is happening here. It is a desperate plea to Democrats to change their tune on the violence sweeping across American cities.
And Democrats seem to understand this as well. Joe Biden released a video Wednesday in which he provided his clearest condemnation of the riots, looting, arson, assault, and destruction of property committed by left-wing “protesters.” Biden said that while protesting was utterly American, these acts are not. He said they were wrong. He did not however, tell people specifically to stop and more importantly, he made no suggestion as to what government and law enforcement should do to stop it.
And it’s not just Joe Biden; look at this tweet from Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy.

This is a far cry from the senator’s remarks on June 5 after rioters burned buildings and looted stores in Minneapolis, when he said, “These protesters are not terrorists, they are Americans seeking change. They are acting in a peaceful manner and law-enforcement should be used to protect their right to free speech.”
The Democrats and some of their stalwart media allies are clearly attempting a major course correction here, but they have a problem. It’s not just that changing their tune on wanton destruction at this late hour is transparently political — a point Don Lemon blurted out on TV this week telling Chris Cuomo that it’s showing up in the polls and in focus groups — it’s that not everyone on the left is on board with the shift. --->READ MORE HERE
Black Lives Matter Riots Swaying Kenosha Residents to Vote Trump:
The riot strategy may be backfiring on the riot party.
That comes from that notorious right-wing rag, the New York Times.
John Geraghty, a 41-year-old worker in a tractor factory, has barely paid attention to the presidential race or the conventions.

Every day he focuses on survival: getting his son to sports practice, working at his job where he now wears a mask, and getting home to sleep, only to start over again the next day.

But when he woke up on Monday morning to images of his hometown, Kenosha, Wis., in flames, he could not stop watching. The unrest in faraway places like Portland, Ore., and Minneapolis had arrived at his doorstep... And after feeling “100 percent on the fence” about who he will vote for in November, he is increasingly nervous that Democratic state leaders seem unable to contain the spiraling crisis.
The New York Times is elbowing Democrats and rioters about the political consequences of burning down cities. --->READ MORE HERE
