Democrats really take the cake.
After months of downplaying the riots, pretending they didn’t exist, calling them “peaceful protests,” even calling President Donald Trump a fascist for offering federal agents or National Guard to help out, Democrats have finally discovered the riots. Because someone finally showed them the polls of how it’s hurting them with Americans.
So now they’re off to the races spinning, trying to blame Trump whose the only one who’s been doing anything about it. The Democrats even blamed the Russians, of all things. Of course, Democrats trying to pitch like they really care now is falling flat.
Joe Biden finally came out with a limp statement condemning violence on Wednesday.
But that’s far different from how they dealt with it over the past few months.
As we reported, they embraced the BLM at their convention, didn’t mention the violence once, even Barack Obama called them peaceful protesters.
But there were another couple of things to which I wanted to point.
As my colleague Streiff previously observed, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) Kamala Harris threatened the ‘protests’ would continue till election. “They’re not going to stop,” she said, broadly smiling. “Everyone beware. They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November.”

Now, of course she must mean the “peaceful protests,” right?

She’s explicitly asking people to contribute for bail for those arrested, those accused of crime in the riots in Minnesota. This is the woman who wants to be elected Vice President.
A reminder: people arrested in Minnesota smashed, looted, burnt down businesses and assaulted people, including cops.
But it wasn’t just Kamala.
At least 13 Biden campaign staff members posted on Twitter on Friday and Saturday that they made donations to the Minnesota Freedom Fund, which opposes the practice of cash bail, or making people pay to avoid pre-trial imprisonment. The group uses donations to pay bail fees in Minneapolis.
Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement to Reuters that the former vice president opposes the institution of cash bail as a “modern day debtors prison.”
But the campaign declined to answer questions on whether the donations were coordinated within the campaign, underscoring the politically thorny nature of the sometimes violent protests.
Biden people were literally helping pay bail for riot suspects, bragging about it on Twitter and asking others to contribute.
So when they try to spin this nonsense now or blame Trump, please, their actions have been very clear.
