BLACK REPUBLICAN BLOG -
The Republican Party is the party of civil rights and the four F’s: faith, family, freedom and fairness.
The Democratic Party is the party of the four S’s: slavery, secession, segregation and socialism (Quote By Author Michael Scheuer).
I’m guessing the Democrats’ internal polling on the
current rioting and protesting is looking really bad, because the New
York Times this morning declares a five-alarm fire with this new story:
. . . [S]ome voters who were less sure of their choice
said the chaos in their city and the inability of elected leaders to stop it
were currently nudging them toward the Republicans.
And some Democrats, nervous about condemning the
looting because they said they understood the rage behind it, worried that
what was happening in their town might backfire and aid the president’s
Ellen Ferwerda, who owns an antique furniture store
downtown just blocks from the worst of the destruction that is now closed, said
that she was desperate for Mr. Trump to lose in November but that she had “huge
concern” the unrest in her town could help him win. She added that local
Democratic leaders seemed hesitant to condemn the mayhem.
“I think they just don’t know what to say,” she
said. “People are afraid to take a stance either way, but I do think it’s
strange they’re all being so quiet. Our mayor has disappeared. It’s like,
‘Where is he?’”
Observation: If you “don’t know what to say” about
rioters, you won’t know what to do about it either. More:
Mr. Geraghty said he disliked how Mr. Trump talked but
said the Democratic Party’s vision for governing seemed limited to attacking
him and calling him a racist, a charge being leveled so constantly that it
was having the effect of alienating, instead of persuading, people. And the
idea that Democrats alone were morally pure on race annoyed him. “The
Democratic agenda to me right now is America is systematically racist and evil
and the only people who can fix it are Democrats,” he said. “That’s the vibe I
Mr. Geraghty said he understood peaceful protesting but
felt frustrated with Democratic leaders who seem afraid of confronting
crowds when things turn violent. He was angry at the statement by Gov. Tony Evers on Sunday, which in
his view took sides against the police in a knee-jerk way that worsened the
situation. . .
Don Biehn, 62, owner of a flooring company, was standing
in line at a gun store on Tuesday afternoon. He said that he had never bought a
pistol before, but that he had a business to protect. A former county board
supervisor, Mr. Biehn said he had been calling county and state officials for
days, trying to explain how grave the situation was. . .
He added: “It’s chaos — everybody is afraid.” Mr.
Trump, he said, “was not my man,” but now he is grateful he is
president. He said he seemed to understand in a way that other politicians
did not. “There’s nobody fighting back,” he said. “Nobody is paying
attention to what’s going on.” . . .
Priscella Gazda, a waitress at a pizza restaurant in
Kenosha, . . . said she had voted only once in her life — for Mr. Obama in
“I’m not the one who would ever vote,” she said. But
after the chaos in her town, this year is different. “I am going to
vote for Trump,” she said. “He seems to be more about the American people
and what we need.”
Hey, it looks like that Omar
Wasow fellow the left demonized a few months back was on to something. (To
refresh, Wasow is the Princeton political scientist who demonstrated with the
usual quantitative analysis how urban rioting helped elect Nixon in 1968. Even
though Wasow is on the left, the left mob went berserk over his wrongthink.)
I’m guessing this story has ruined a lot of breakfasts
today for Times readers, and will cause a lot of canceled subscriptions.
The Times isn’t supposed to bring its readers unpleasant news like this.
