On the one hand, Black Lives Matter riots have been calibrated for election years. And the 2020 BLM riots were obviously intended to boost turnout. But after Kenosha, the riots backfired badly.
When the polling showed that the voters Biden needed, white suburbanites, were beginning to turn against BLM and the riots, the pause button seemed like it was hit.
And now we’re back in full play mode with riots in Philly.
What’s the calculation of having race riots in a swing state?
1. The Democrats are betting that the outrage over Kenosha is faded and they’re worried about some poll numbers showing a wedge of young black male support for President Trump. If so, this is an incredibly stupid gamble.
2. Despite all the financial strings to BLM, portions of the hate group were never properly under control, and starting riots is easier than stopping them. Once there was the right pretext, e.g. police shooting a knife-wielding man, the rest couldn’t be stopped.
Now there are full-fledged riots, complete with a police officer run over by a truck, police cruisers set on fire, and stores being looted.
Right before an election is a bad time for riots in a swing state. Bad for Biden at least. But a good reminder of what the Democrats have done in 2020 by backing BLM.
California and New York City are Trying to Buy the Election for Biden
This is why we have the Electoral College. And it’s why Democrats are obsessed with destroying it.
Democrat victories mean that New York City and California, or rather their wealthy elites, get to run the country. That’s why they’re literally buying the election for Joe Biden.
Take it from that notorious right-wing disinformation site… the New York Times.
Mr. Biden’s entire financial edge can be accounted for through just four states: California, New York, Massachusetts and Washington.
And within those and other blue states, Mr. Biden’s hauls are particularly concentrated in big cities and suburbs. One Upper West Side ZIP code — 10024 — accounted for more than $8 million for Mr. Biden, and New York City in total delivered $85.6 million for him — more than he raised in every state other than California.
The question is whether a small group of financial elites with their power bases in a few key states should be running the country and buying elections.
That’s one of the questions that 2020 will answer.
In ZIP codes with a median household income of at least $100,000, Mr. Biden smashed Mr. Trump in fund-raising, $486 million to only $167 million — accounting for almost his entire financial edge. In the rest of the country, the two were knotted closely together.
The Democrats pretend they’re class warriors. But they’re right. It’s just not the class they’re claiming to be.
