The further to the left or the right you move, the more your lens on life distorts.

It's kind of amusing to observe the Democrat's (and therefore, the media's) evolving narrative on the protests/riots that began three months ago with the death of George Floyd while in police custody.

  • "The protests are a modern day civil rights movement. 
  • "The police are racist. Reform them by reallocating funding." [a.k.a. defund the police]
  • "The protests are far more important than the CDC guidelines that advise against large gatherings to avoid transmission of COVID-19."  [But schools MUST remain closed and everyone else should shelter-in-place] 
  • "There is no evidence that rioting is occurring and claims to the contrary are lies." [Just ask Congressman Jerry Nadler (D-NY)] 
  • "The protests are "mostly peaceful" and any arson, looting or violence do not represent the underlying intent of the BLM movement." 
  • "Unrest occurs spontaneously and is driven by frustration. There is no evidence of any outside agitators or planning. Antifa doesn't exist." [All of those outside coordinators and weapons caches just appeared magically] 
  • "The presence of federal law enforcement officers (who were protecting a federal court house) caused the mob to want to burn down the courthouse. It's the DHS's fault."

After three months of avoiding any condemnation of the riots, and as Biden/Harris began sinking in the polls, focus groups indicated that the rioting was hurting the Dems. The narrative changed instantly:

  • "We condemn the rioting and mobs and urge everyone on both sides [as if] to cease these unfortunate activities." 
  • "These violent mobs have arisen in Trump's America. He is directly responsible for the riots." [in Democratically controlled cities that have rejected his offers of help]. 
  • "It's Trump's right-wing supporters who have become vigilantes and are responsible for the rioting and violence." [even though Trump's supporters were nowhere in evidence for the first three months of rioting]And now:

And now (from Biden):

  • "Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is elected?"

That's just a great strategy ... blackmail Americans into voting for Dems by implicitly threatening more rioting and unrest unless Biden is elected. Using the leftist mobs as a threat reeks of desperation, but worse, it's reprehensible to suggest that a cessation of arson, looting, and violence is conditioned on the Dems acquisition of political power. 

Americans have never responded well to threats, but apparently, a cognitively-challenged Joe Biden and his left-wing handlers have forgotten that.

Pushback is coming.
