Cities Brace For Riots, Liberals Wonder Why
Cities Brace For Riots, Liberals Wonder Why
U.S. cities are preparing for riots. This is surprising too many on the left, but not surprising to those of us who’ve been watching this build since 2016.
“Across the country, there are growing concerns that the bitterness and animosity over the presidential election will not end when the polls close Tuesday night. From coast to coast, cities are preparing for possible protests, civil unrest and violence, regardless of the election’s outcome.”
So, according to NPR, we will have riots even if Biden wins? Who would be rioting if there is a Biden win? Why it would be those very same thugs who’ve been rioting and burning down Democrat cities since May. In Dallas, businesses from downtown to Deep Ellum are boarding up everything.
“Haddad lives in an apartment building near the Nieman Marcus store located off Main Street. The department store was among several businesses heavily damaged during protests in May sparked by the death of George Floyd.
According to city of Dallas, protests resulted in about $5 million in property damage, including three police cars that were burned and others that were vandalized. DPD says it spent just shy of $3 million responding to the protests.
Haddad’s building was vandalized in May. She says management boarded up this time as a precaution.”
In Denver, downtown businesses are already boarded up, and tagged with graffiti. Business owners have told their employees to exit the downtown area by 5pm as a precaution. What the downtown restaurants that are struggling to survive will do this evening is anyone’s guess.
It isn’t just Denver and Dallas. Cities all over the country are preparing for the worst case tonight and for the foreseeable future. Why would we need to? Why are law enforcement officials concerned about violence?
From prior to President Trump’s inauguration on, violence and calls for violence has been the go-to for anyone who doesn’t like President Trump and anyone in the Trump Administration. Democrats from Maxine Waters to Eric Holder to blue-check liberals have consistently called for conservatives and Trump Administration officials to be kicked or worse.
Shouting down and driving people from restaurants is fine as long as it is against Republicans. Screaming invectives until you are blue in the face is fine as long as it is against Republicans. Making videos showing President Trump’s severed head (Kathy Griffin) is fine because Trump ORANGEMANBAD.
NPR is surprised that people are taking precautions regarding potential rioting. Meanwhile, NPR is also planning to shelter the public from results that might trigger them.
What if a candidate, some candidate, claims victory in a state? What steps are in place to protect NPR listeners from that news? https://t.co/KOQYdevFtH— Josh Gerstein (@joshgerstein) November 1, 2020
That’s so very helpful isn’t it?
Wolf Blitzer was surprised the other day about riot protection preparations. He shouldn’t be. Nor should anyone else.
President Trump says if he is elected he believes there will be rioting and violence in Democrat controlled cities like Portland, Chicago, New York, Oakland, Baltimore, and "different places" because of "weak leadership" on the local level.— Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) November 3, 2020
Guess what? President Trump is correct. The leadership in all of those cities is and has been incredibly weak. They’ve told our law enforcement to stand down. They’ve let the looting thugs walk away scot free without even having to pay a fine. Kamala Harris stands by her call for people to donate to rioters bail funds. If she didn’t, she would’ve taken her tweet down, but months later, it is still up.
The riots are a definite possibility. Scratch that. I honestly would be surprised if riots DIDN’T happen.
Washington D.C. is also preparing for worst. Specifically because of the plans from Shutdown DC.
“On Wednesday morning, according to its website, the group is inviting people to gather at BLM Plaza and Union Station, from where “we’ll step off to disrupt business as usual for some of the institutions that are most complicit in [President] Trump’s attack on Democracy.”
“Trump will only be able to successfully launch a coup if his donors, the media and the Republican Party establishment goes along with his attack on democracy,” Shutdown DC says. “We’re going to put Trump’s enablers on notice: We hold you accountable for facilitating Trump’s historic attacks on democracy.”
Demonstrators then plan to target the White House on Thursday, the website says. “A combination of cars, bikes, and on-foot demonstrators will jam traffic around and block access to the White House.””
There is no other way to look at the above and not believe that all will be peaceful in Washington D.C. or elsewhere tonight and over the next few days. But if Joe Biden wins, all will be fine. Right??
Trump’s chaos? Last I checked, businesses weren’t boarding up their windows because they were afraid of Trump supporters. https://t.co/XALmvJ0H2t— Dan Crenshaw (@DanCrenshawTX) November 1, 2020
Not ONE SINGLE Democrat mayor or governor has ended ANY of the chaos that started this May. This timeline shows the riots through the end of July. As we all know, there has been additional violence and chaos since then. Northwestern University for example. How about Vox?
If the Supreme Court tries to steal the election, I hope that Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan abandon all the normal judicial rhetoric about "respectful" disagreement and use their dissents to call people into the streets.— Ian Millhiser (@imillhiser) November 3, 2020
That was a “mostly peaceful” tweet if I ever saw one.
I don’t like the fact that riots are a distinct possibility tonight. But what I don’t like even more is that the Democrats, the media, and blue-check liberals are A. pretending to be surprised at this, B. wonder why this is happening, C. attempt to gaslight and blame President Trump, and D. tacitly encourage the violence.
The liberals have only themselves and no one else to blame for the riots and the destruction.
