The Summer of Love

With unrest roiling the nation, it definitely seems like the "summer of love" is over.

Summer must be over because the love has certainly stopped in leftist-run cities. We’re told all of the protests happening across the nation are to fight for justice against racist police officers. The Left and the media tell us they’re all just “peaceful protesters” as we watch buildings and vehicles burn to the ground behind them. There are only a few violent protesters, according to the media.

The media says the accusations that violent protests are only happening in cities run by Democrats are not true. Apparently, there is one city “somewhere” run by a Republican mayor that is also rioting! That’s what we call fair and balanced, I guess.

The Black Lives Matter and antifa protesters just want justice, we’re told by the media. But that’s not what they’re saying at all. If we don’t give them what they want, they will burn the system down. BLM founders proudly wear the label of trained Marxists. Burning down stores after looting them is okay because the stores have insurance, and what was stolen was simply reparations … or something. They tell us they’re coming for our homes next. They want to “peacefully” take our homes from us! What does that look like?

Meanwhile, the carnage continues as police are overwhelmed with violent assaults on them. Prosecutors in many places are refusing to bring charges against “protesters” who are released right back into the streets to continue committing crimes. Thousands of police officers have been injured and more than two dozen people are dead. The destruction goes on night after night as the Left continues to demand the defunding of all police.

And not just that. They want to close all prisons and do away with Customs and Border Patrol. They say they’re going to take away your guns because you don’t need them. You will be safe. But we watch people who get too close to the peaceful protesters being dragged out of their cars and beaten senseless for “social justice.” This is the message the Democrats have to convince us to vote for them in November? Seriously?

I’ve never been a fan of Joe Biden. But even with that, it has been sad to watch his campaign staff trot him out for a press conference when he can’t string two or three sentences together without stumbling all over himself. Where is his wife while all of this is going on? It looks more like elder abuse than a political event. There’s no way he will be able to handle the pressures of being president.

So, who will be running the show? Kamala Harris’s record in the Senate is to the left of socialist Bernie Sanders. Her track record as a prosecutor smacks of polishing her résumé to move up the political ladder. She will say whatever it takes to get ahead. How do I know this? Look at how Biden and Harris pat each other on the back when during the Democrat primaries she all but called him a racist. Now they’re best friends.

The Democrats have not condemned the violence because they think they can blame President Donald Trump for violence in their cities. Higher taxes, defund police, more crime, take our guns, and do away with fossil fuels — it all sounds like a great campaign platform to me! What do you think?

Something to think about?
