Democrats didn’t mention the unrest and rioting that’s rocking major Democrat-run cities during the entire four nights of their national convention, and then, suddenly, Joe Biden emerges in Pittsburgh before a gathering of about six reporters and condemns all violence, challenging President Trump to do the same.
Reporters must have a macro on their keyboards that instantly types out, “mostly peaceful.” We’ve been told again and again that all of these protests are mostly peaceful, despite what we’ve seen streamed over the internet from Portland and Seattle. Just last week, CNN accidentally ran a chyron saying that a curfew had been imposed on Kenosha because of violent protests — and then, 15 seconds later, the chyron was removed and replaced by one that took out the word “violent.” The New York Times is reporting that mostly peaceful protesters are “assessing how to keep themselves safe” with “right-wing groups” increasingly moving in on their territory. Jennifer Rubin and April Ryan both today have brought up Trump trying to start a race war.
So progressives are finally admitting that, yes, these protests are violent. But no, we’re not admitting these are far-leftists trying to burn down buildings. Joy Reid, who never tracked down those time-traveling hackers who messed with her blog, says Trump could stop the violence by tweeting to his supporters to go home.
“If Trump wanted to end the violence in American cities, he could simply go on his Twitter feed and tell his supporters to go home,” @JoyAnnReid says. “Trump is openly doing the opposite, encouraging more violence.”https://t.co/kFMylnwpFW

If his supporters were out there it would end.

Antifa and BLM are NOT Trump supporters. I repeat, they are not Trump supporters.

The difference between Joy Reid and Alex Jones is that Twitter hasn’t banned Joy Reid.

If Joe Biden wanted to end the violence in American cities (that he & his supporters have been denying for 3 months.)" he could "tell his supporters to go home". There I fixed it for you.

Say it, Joe, "Antifa". We've been putting up with them for years here in Portland. Now that you and the Democrats have given Antifa free reign, you own these violent riots.

If Democratic Leaders wanted to end the violence in American cities, they could simply go on their Twitter feeds/News Programs and tell their BLM/Antifa supporters to go home.
They are openly doing the opposite, and encouraging more violence.

And raising money for their bail.

What's encouraging it is far left mayors & governors who won't let the police & criminal justice work as it's intended to work. Police aren't allowed to do their jobs & there's a revolving door at the courts.
THAT is why we have people defending their businesses with guns now.

All his supporters are at work. We don’t have time to “protest”.

Funny how this take just emerged in the last few days. Just as their polls tanked.

Another day, another claim that what’s happening in Portland and elsewhere is right-wing domestic terrorism:
