Democrats on the coronavirus are yipping like third-grade blowhards bragging about how they would have kicked the bully's ass if only they had been on the playground that day, while everyone remembers them hiding in a bush and trying not to wet their pants
We just caught a top Democrat ON VIDEO disregarding coronavirus protocols, they've been encouraging their extremist wing to riot nuts-to-butts in the streets for months, and they're all on the record getting everything wrong in March and April.
Biden argued AGAINST containing the virus with a travel ban. Andrew Cuomo thwarted measures that would have saved thousands of lives across America, and then he DELIBERATELY KILLED thousands more, to thunderous applause from Democrats and their media.
But now they want to gaslight us into thinking they had the right magic spells to banish the coronavirus demon all along, and if only the senile old man they're running for president had been in charge, we'd all be so much better off? It's absurd and beneath contempt.
Here's the cold, hard truth: Democrats have ALWAYS put politics ahead of fighting the virus and public safety, every single time. They encouraged, enabled, and protected protests and riots in the streets, claiming the woke virus won't bother people with pure lefty hearts.
Democrats hyper-politicized the pandemic every step of the way, on a scale far beyond anything Trump ever stated or misstated on the disease. They're still doing it RIGHT NOW. Do they think we've forgotten them holding relief bills hostage to get their stupid policy wish lists?
Do Democrats think we don't notice one of their most powerful political factions, the teachers' unions, holding children hostage to get THEIR policy agenda fulfilled? The crap they've done isn't just rhetorical. It's all actions on the record they cannot take back.
Trump, and every wing of government, can be fairly criticized for getting things wrong with the Wuhan coronavirus. Everyone around the world did, in no small part because of deliberate Chinese misinformation campaigns. Everyone's confidence was repeatedly shaken.
Everyone panicked, and then panicked again. Not just politicians, but scientists, were stampeded into forgetting what they knew about infectious diseases and swinging from one extreme measure to another in a mad rush to DO SOMETHING. Much of what they did was mistaken.
But it's the Democrats who have relentlessly, remorselessly politicized this pandemic, every day and in every way. They didn't just make mistakes. They sought to extract political gain from every moment of uncertainty, and blatantly exempted themselves from heavy-handed rules.
We need to study everything that happened this year with clear eyes and learn from our mistakes. Few could claim they didn't make any. Claiming that only Donald Trump got things wrong is ridiculous, and the last thing we need right now is nonsense from blowhard politicians.
And when it comes to moving forward, to rebuilding, the last people we should trust are the Democrats who thought first and foremost of their own political gain at every turn. You know damn well they would turn recovery into a twisted carnival of corruption and lunatic policies.
Trump proved he knows how to create jobs and put America's national interests first. Moving forward, that matters a lot more than his rhetorical excesses - and I'd take his riffing and boasting over Democrat gaslighting campaigns any day of the week. /end

That post-9/11 "moment of national unity" was a LOT shorter than we like to remember.

We didn't really "come together as a nation." We learned we have common enemies. It didn't take long for some of us to forget even that, and encourage others to forget it as well.
We didn't gain "unity" so much as FOCUS. Priorities shifted for a while. It did not take long for that national focus to strike the prism of politics and scatter into dramatically different outlooks and agendas, all claiming 9/11 was the event looming largest in their minds.
It's lamentable in some ways, but totally understandable in others. We have serious divisions. Our disagreements are not trivial. Learning that we are vulnerable to attack did not erase those differences. On a long enough timeline, it might have exaggerated them.

"Resistance" against Trump since 2017 has been easy and fun. He's a remarkably restrained executive. The worst thing he'll do is tweet something harsh about you. A network of rich and famous left-wingers plus Obama holdovers in the federal bureaucracy is eager to help you.
"Resistance" against Barack Obama put you in the crosshairs of the entire federal apparatus. You could be spied upon by the FBI or crushed by the IRS. The media denounced you as a racist. Family members were encouraged to rat you out. The ruling party called you a terrorist.
Resistance against the Left in 2020 can get you killed. Your property could be destroyed. The media will studiously ignore your plight, while local officials tell the police not to protect you and thwart federal efforts to help. If you try to protect yourself, YOU go to jail.

This is everything I've been saying about Democrats and their media trying to legitimize political violence, in one pure concentrated headline dose.
This is also a beautiful example of what I said earlier about the Left demanding an exclusive right to violate the social contract. No matter how violent and destructive they get, they're just "protesters" and "demonstrators" looking to "keep themselves safe" from oppressors.
The framing in this left-wing propaganda is clear: If THEY decide the system sucks and rules are broken, they can violate any laws they please. YOU, however, are still fully bound by the social contract they've declared null and void for themselves.

Straight and tough talk about Democrat political violence is good, but Trump needs to avoid comments that will help the Dems sell their "looting and murder will only stop when Trump leaves office" threat. He has to understand there's real danger of people buying it.
I'm out here making the contrary argument every day - that violence will only continue if Dems are rewarded for it, that the only way to shut down violent extremism is to crush the "moderate political wing" of the extremist groups, so the pols view the extremists as a liability.
Trump would do better to push that argument than adopting a pugnacious attitude that makes a large number of weary, frightened, demoralized swing voters think they really are in for endless street warfare if they don't submit to Democrat demands.

There is no question that the Democrat Party tried to legitimize political violence.

No amount of gaslighting can conceal it.

If you don't punish them for it harshly at the ballot box - even after they back down because their polls are crashing - you WILL get more of it.
Political violence is a toxin we don't want in our system AT ALL. We must send a message that terrifies future politicians out of toying with violence. We need them pumping the brakes as soon as the idea is floated, not after they run some polls and conclude it's a loser.
We've seen how much active complicity from Democrat mayors, governors, national political figures, and media was needed to get these riots rolling. You want all of those forces to say no - HELL NO - the next time a violent left-wing political crusade gets ginned up.

Hi, media! Are any of you going to ask if Pelosi's "Biden shouldn't debate Trump because that would legitimize him" idiocy was a factor in the left-wing violence outside the White House last night?
I know this is a "narrative" none of you mainstream media reporters wants to touch, but top Democrats have CONSTANTLY encouraged harassment of Republican voters and officials. They constantly question President Trump's legitimacy, and that of any Republican who supports him.
Violent Democrat followers are doing exactly what Democrat leaders have been telling them to do for years. You media types would have absolutely no problem drawing a line from rhetoric to violence if these were Republicans. You'd fall all over yourselves to do it.
