Democrats Praise and Encourage Rioting as It Spins Out of Control

In her first appearance after officially becoming the Democrats’ VP candidate, Kamala Harris effusively praised Black Lives Matter/Antifa rioters:

“[W]e are experiencing a moral reckoning with racism and systemic injustice that has brought a new coalition of conscience to the streets of our country demanding change.”

Harris continued: “To everyone keeping up the fight, you are doing something great! You are the heroes of our time.”

Other Democratic officeholders go farther, explicitly inciting still more riots. Shouts Rep Ayanna Pressley (D-MA),

“You know, there needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives.”

In the context of the past 2+ months, “unrest in the streets” means mayhem. It means this:

Chicago police officers and violent rioters collided on Saturday as riots broke out in the Windy City. According to Chicago Police, at least 24 people were arrested during the protests that escalated into violence. …

During the riots, two civilians were injured and 17 police officers were treated for injuries. …

Brown said one of the cops injured was an officer who was “beaten in the head several times with a skateboard.” …

The situation became so uncontrollable that the city was forced to raise the area bridges to limit access. The same defensive tactic was implemented by the city last Sunday during the riots and widespread looting.

Also from this past weekend:

Eighteen people were arrested late Sunday in Seattle when an anti-police protest descended into a riot, with members from the group throwing rocks and explosives at law enforcement officers, authorities said Monday.

Protesters marched on the Seattle Police Officer Guild.

Sometime after 10 p.m., demonstrators detonated a “large explosive” and tried to break the window of a police car, authorities said. …

“Multiple explosives were thrown toward officers,” the press release stated. “Several officers were struck by explosives and injured.” …

Three officers were hurt, and one was taken to an area hospital for their injuries, police said.

The anarchy has been too widespread and has been going on for too long for Democrats to count on the media to ignore it or spin at as a few agitators “hijacking” peaceful protests. Anyone who joins up with one of these mobs knows they will likely be taking part in a riot.

Then we have John Thompson, the Minnesota candidate for State Representative, who has been endorsed by Democratic Governor Tim Walz, and who during an obscenity-laced racist tirade suggested burning down the town of Hugo.

Until we hear otherwise is clear terms, this is what the Democratic Party stands for.

Maybe voters can be intimidated into rewarding this terror. Then again, maybe they will vote for people who will make the terror stop.

Who is going to vote for more of these peaceful protests?
