Signs Are Pointing Toward Another Leftist-Fueled Summer of Violence

Does anybody remember the "Summer of Love"?

The phrase was coined by former Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a Democrat who justified an "autonomous zone" established by left-wing anarchists in the city in 2020.


You may recall that a 19-year-old man was shot and killed in the autonomous zone. 

Multiple other shootings took place in that seven-block area that police were forced to abandon during the “Summer of Love.”

A 24-year-old woman was hit by a car while protesting on a closed section of Interstate 5 in Seattle. She later died.

Calls pertaining to “rapes, robberies and all sorts of violent acts”, according to Seattle Police Chief at the time, Carmen Best, had tripled.

And yet Durkan thought it little more than “a block party atmosphere.”

A “Summer of Love.”

Seattle was but one example of the leftist-fueled violence that engulfed the nation during the summer of 2020.

The race riots in the months leading up to the presidential election that year were sparked by the death of George Floyd. But that case was merely weaponized as a catalyst to cause chaos throughout the country. 

Those riots raged for months. We saw nightly attempts by anarchists to try to burn down a courthouse in Portland, an act some might define as insurrection. There was the arson. The looting. The violence.

What was the goal? To fire up the base. To transfer that rage into votes. To, as Michael Sances, assistant professor of Political Science at Temple University explained, help shape the 2020 presidential election.


“If voters are thinking about this in terms of racial justice and nonviolent protests, that’s politically pretty bad for the president, because they really don’t trust Trump on issues of race,” Sances said weeks before the election.

Hence the violent protests, which were dutifully and perpetually described by the left-wing legacy media as ‘mostly peaceful.’

It worked to a degree. Biden was carried into office with unprecedented support — 81 million votes, if you can believe it.

So it is no coincidence that we are seeing another uptick in violence and chaos again as we head into the summer months. With Biden’s polling numbers woefully down, the left will do anything to help carry this cadaver across the finish line to maintain power.

It began with the pro-Hamas faction of the Democrat base causing turmoil on college campuses across the nation. Rioters shut down college campuses and threatened students.

A report surfaced last month indicating George Soros and other progressive Democratic donors had been funding the anti-Israel protests.

Some might suggest those protests are detrimental to Biden. But, as with most extremists on the left, they will assuredly vote Democrat when it comes time to take action. We see this with Squad members in Congress who consistently complain about Biden regarding Israel but who would not hesitate to back the president. 


Why? Because they believe he is malleable enough to do their bidding. Progressive voters think that as well. Has he demonstrated otherwise during his term in office?

Plus, what is the other option for these pink-haired, college-aged communists? Trump?

Earlier this week, leftists violently targeted Team Trump volunteers and allegedly flipped over tables outside an event featuring Vice President Kamala Harris.

On Wednesday, a package with vials of blood was shipped to the Republican National Committee (RNC) headquarters in Washington, D.C. They were addressed to Donald Trump.

The incident prompted a swift response from law enforcement and emergency services. The area around the RNC headquarters was cordoned off to allow for a thorough investigation and the building was placed on lockdown.


RNC Chairman Michael Whatley described the actions as a “biological attack.”

“This revolting attack comes on the heels of pro-Hamas protestors violently demonstrating on college campuses and deranged Biden supporters physically attacking our campaign volunteers for supporting President Trump,” said Whatley.

Best to buckle up, Trump supporters. This won’t end anytime soon. 

Make way for another Democrat "block party" involving riots, looting, and arson. The “Summer of Love” will be back in 2024.
