Are You Sure 'Vote for Joe Biden or We'll Kill You' Is the Best Campaign Pitch?

Excerpt:

Supporters of a candidate with confidence in the politician’s ability to win based on making the better argument don’t usually use the heckler’s-veto-on-steroids to coerce people to their point of view. Yet that is precisely what Ronald Brownstein did in an article in The Atlantic.

The underlying tone of the article is: “Vote for Joe Biden or the national temper tantrum will only get worse.” He accuses the president of positioning blue cities as a threat in order to rally voters to his law-and-order agenda. A brief scroll of Twitter will show you that riots in cities like Seattle and Portland are absolutely a threat to safety and security. No one needs President Trump to point it out.

Of course, the corporate media gaslighting about Peaceful Protestors™ means you shouldn’t believe your own lying eyes. The anarcho-communists in these urban utopias are harassing and rejecting some of the most progressive mayors in the country. This pattern started in Minneapolis when Mayor Jacob Frey was heckled out of a group of protestors with his head bowed after kneeling to their cause.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan had protestors descend on her home. So did Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot. And Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler, who has been letting antifa operate unchallenged in his city for three years, was chased into the safety of an office building with his security team by the mob. This happened after he was teargassed standing with the rioters.

I find it hysterical that Brownstein thinks Americans watching the insane looting, arson, and rioting going on in America’s cities cannot identify the threat these groups pose themselves. Residents of Beverley Hills, Calif., Buckhead, Ga., and SoHo in New York have seen this insanity first hand. The anarcho-communists deliberately targeted these wealthier communities. Leaders of Black Lives Matter explained it this way:

The idea that President Trump is framing this as some sort of urban/rural divide is just intellectually dishonest. Brownstein is part of an elite corporate media that has been denigrating vast swaths of Americans between the coasts since the 2016 primaries. Deplorable, backward, uneducated, and the full complement of -ists and -isms have been applied with a broad brush. These geniuses just assume there is not an intellectual argument to be made that opposes their worldview.

Brownstein details the friction that exists between Republican governors and Democrat mayors of large urban areas over both escalating violence and COVID-19 management. As a Georgia resident, his positioning of the friction between Governor Kemp and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is uninformed and ridiculous.

*snip*

And Kemp sent National Guard troops in after violent crime exploded in the city and Atlanta police were hamstrung by the mayor. Surrounding jurisdictions also refused to send officers to support Bottoms in solidarity with the APD officers who were under intense pressure. Georgians outside the Atlanta mayor’s office were glad to see order restored.

Similarly, Americans are tired of the unrest in our cities. A poll showed 58% supported using the military to quell the unrest. Brownstein frames President Trump’s move to place federal officers in urban areas with increasing violence as overreach being objected to by local leaders. What he completely ignores is the difference between what is going on in Portland and the support being provided in other cities.

Operation Legend actually started on July 8 in Kansas City. This program includes agents from agencies like the FBI, DEA, and ATF working with local law enforcement to investigate and enforce federal crimes. The goal is to remove some of the most violent individuals from the streets by expediting investigations and making appropriate charges. This cooperation is the plan for Chicago, New York, and other cities where bodies are piling up at an unprecedented rate.

People who don't see what's going on and what will happen if these thugs are not stopped get what they deserve.

I, for one, and thoroughly sick of this bullschitt playing out across the country while cowards try to appease and placate them.

These are CRIMINALS and they should be treated as such, with NO equivocation.

They're just following the Chinese model.  Which makes sense, because the Chinese are behind most of this
