When Captain Demento showed up in Kenosha, he thought he’d win over a few voters. But that plan back-fired, as do most Democrat strategies.
Leftists tried to use Kenosha to their advantage. They hoped the rioting, looting and arson would paint a picture of a weak president. Boy did they get it wrong.
In fact, Democrats made three monumental mistakes in Wisconsin.
First, they backpedaled.
Once business owners started adding up the losses, Evers decided it was time to put a stop to the riots ransacking Kenosha. But to his surprise, the crowds of leftists didn’t respond to “pretty please.” As such, Evers went groveling to the President.
Of course, Trump was all to happy to assert his law and order on the looney leftists destroying Kenosha.
As I previously wrote, President Trump understands the Bill of Rights and how it applies to these riots.
It starts with the right to assemble. But the first amendment isn’t just about the right to assemble. It’s also gives citizens the right to ask government to solve problems. However, right now its the government asking citizens to help solve those problems. Because civil unrest solves nothing. Put down the torches, because innocent bystanders face complete obliteration as their businesses burn to the ground.
“Where the president draws the line is where peaceful protesters crossed the line with outside groups like Antifa. Because [that’s when everything] erupts in violence.” He added: “It doesn’t serve anyone’s purpose to cause mayhem. So, I think that’s a great concern.”
These riots aren’t looking for social reform. They’re looking for payback. In fact, #BLM claims riots and looting are a form of reparations. Which is why Evers couldn’t successfully put a stop to the violence. But Trump sent the National Guard. And instead of “thank you,” guess what Evers said?
The out of touch governor asked Trump “not to visit” because the citizens were exhausted and grieving. In other words, send us your resources, but stay far, far away. You can imagine how Trump took that message! But back to that in a bit.
Democrats sent Joe Biden. I’m betting they thought he was well-rested after his months in the basement. But he wasn’t rested enough to be coherent.
First, he garbled his words, which is par for the course these days. And then he threw out the dagger.
As Fox chronicled:
Biden’s speech aimed at addressing racial unrest veered into talking about inequities in taxes at one point. He stopped himself from laying out his tax policy in detail, saying if he goes on any longer “they’ll shoot me.”
Yikes. I thought bleeding-heart liberals were extra sensitive regarding such matters. Guess I was wrong. But it gets worse; Biden showcased his delusions.
Biden said he’s seeking common ground that Trump is incapable of reaching with “law and order” rhetoric and repeated refusals to acknowledge racism in America.
“I can’t say if tomorrow God made me president, I can’t guarantee you everything gets solved in four years,” Biden said. But “it would be a whole better, we’d get a whole lot further down the road” if Trump isn’t re-elected.
“There’s certain things worth losing over,” he concluded, “and this is something worth losing over if you have to — but we’re not going to lose.”
I thought for sure Biden understood he’s not going to win. But again, I am mistaken. Before we get to mistake number three, let’s take a little detour.
Democrats are Out of Touch
While Gov. Evers was busy asking Trump to just stay home, his constituents had a much different idea. In fact, one Kenosha official went on record to say Biden brought words to Kenosha, but Trump brought help. And what’s that old saying? Actions speak louder than words!
Ironically, Democrats criticized Trump for not visiting Jacob Blake.
And they bragged that Biden met with him. How backwards is that? As we recently learned, Blake wasn’t some innocent bystander shot by the terrible white cops.
As I previously wrote:
…the facts are this.
- A court order prohibited Blake from going near his ex-girlfriend because of a domestic violence issue.
- There were multiple warrants out for Blake’s arrest, including felony sexual assault of a minor.
- Blake resisted arrest. Not only did he wave a knife at police, but he was also tased and continued to resist arrest.
- Blake left police with no choice but to use deadly force.
The New York Post adds:
Blake is accused in the criminal complaint, which was obtained by The Post, of breaking into the home of a woman he knew and sexually assaulting her.
The victim, who is only identified by her initials in the paperwork, told police she was asleep in bed with one of her children when Blake came into the room around 6 a.m. and allegedly said “I want my sh-t,” the record states.
He allegedly assaulted her with his finger and claimed that it “smells like you’ve been with other men,” according to the complaint.
No wonder Biden felt some kind of connection to Blake. Even more so, no wonder Trump didn’t want to be in the same room as the so-called victim. Blake’s own mother felt the need to apologize to President Trump for her son’s behavior and for the resulting riots.
Which brings us to mistake number three.
Democrats underestimated Donald Trump!
In years past, a visit from the President was more of a photo opp than anything else. But Trump does things differently. And while the governor was busy begging Trump not to show up, city officials penned a very different letter.
According to Breitbart:
Supervisor Amy Maurer, and several other supervisors, wrote Trump a letter asking him not to cancel his visit to the area, despite demands by Gov. Tony Evers (D) and the NAACP.
“I don’t care who comes as long as they bring help,” she said.
The Trump administration is providing $41 million “in emergency funding to hire more police officers and provide support to victims affected by recent violence,” NBC 15 reported.
Maurer said $1 million would go to the downtown Kenosha association to help the 30+ businesses hit by rioting, looting, and arson “get back on their feet.”
“I don’t think Joe Biden brought any help. This was a campaign stop for him,” she told The Kyle Olson Show.
“For Joe Biden to come, it was kind of a waste of time, in my opinion,” she said.
Thankfully, Trump’s efforts quelled the violence, and not a moment to soon. But if we take away anything from Maurer’s words, it is this: Joe Biden is a waste of time. That’s what you call a piece of universal logic.
