At the outset of the Summer riots, Democrats refused to condemn them. They called the acts of ongoing violence, “peaceful protests” and even denied Trump’s efforts to restore law and order. Democrats even defunded police departments, contributing to more widespread crime. Now, it looks like a few Democrats are starting to change their tune—as they realize this might impact November.
There’s a danger of believing your own press. For Democrats, that’s literal. The largely liberal mainstream media produced polls at the beginning of the year proclaiming Biden leading Trump. This, despite the fact that Biden was hiding in his basement from ‘Rona. Democrats must have believed they were invincible.
When violent riots began to spread across the country, Democrats paid it no mind. In fact, they even applauded the “brave” souls looting local businesses, attacking churches, and destroying the livelihoods of the people they claimed to be fighting for. Pretending to help minorities, Democrats vowed to defund police departments, the very groups dedicated to protecting black lives.
The obvious result of this shocking lack of leadership would be felt in November, right? What sane human being in a blue state would vote for idiots promising more crime and chaos? But it looks like things are already turning bad for Democrats.

If that’s what a public poll reveals, imagine what Democrats’ internal polling is telling them? If they don’t have people explaining that the pro-riot platform is hurting them, then Democrats really have lost their minds.
Even idiots like CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo are calling for the riots to end. That means they both know for a fact that the riots are hurting Democrats’ November chances. Now, a few notable Democrats and Biden supporters are changing their tune.
Oregon Gov. Kate Brown claimed that rioters and looters would be held accountable for the destruction in Portland after nearly three months straight of social unrest and violence…

Wow! It only took three months of non-stop violence for this idiot to say what she should have said on day one.
Why did it take so long? Because Democrats thought the rioting was helping them. They thought the public would blame all this on Trump—even though he was the one calling for law and order.
Another Biden shill seems to have seen the writing on the wall:

It looks like Democrats’ internal poll is definitely not looking good. Don’t be surprised if a few Democrats come out to condemn the riots in the coming days. But it will be too little, too late. The radical wing of the Democratic Party has fanned the flames of hate and violence. They will not stop these staged riots for anything.
Local mayors will also be reluctant to call for an end to the violence, because it will prove they were wrong and Trump was right.
They pushed the boat out onto this water, after all. They can’t suddenly paddle back when they realize the water is too choppy.
A few smart Democrats will drastically try to change course. But it’s much too late. For over three months voters in liberal cities watched their homes got destroyed. It wasn’t Trump’s fault. It wasn’t the police’s fault. It was their own liberal leaders’ fault.
And come November, they will vote them out of office.
