When the Democrats pursued racial division as a political path to power, they opened a Pandora’s box of trouble that they now seek to close, but not because of the evil they have unleashed. The economic destruction, the brutal attacks, the mistrust, and the demolition of small businesses could not soften Democrat’s hearts. The undoing of decades of racial progress and the potential for decades of racial unrest fueled no urgency to end the riots.
What finally changed their minds? Joe Biden is collapsing in the polls. Rioting is threatening their own chances of winning the White House. Rioting, racial unrest, burning cities, and screaming intimidating BLM activists are not polling well. In the words of some obscure person, “Who woulda thunk?”
Rioting is not polling well for Joe Biden. Biden must win the White House. Therefore, according to the left’s twisted minds, rioting must stop.
How do we know they have changed their minds? The “Dwarf king,” as Tucker Carlson calls him, Jeff Zucker of CNN has sent a memo, and two of his stooges, CNN anchors Don Lemon and Chris “Fredo” Cuomo trotted out the reversal of policy on the “peaceful” protests.
Lemon lamented to Cuomo that the rioting in Kenosha is hurting Joe Biden in focus groups and polling. Lemon, unsurprisingly, cares about the acquisition of power, not the pain of victims of mob rioting in places like Kenosha, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, Atlanta, Washington D.C., New York City, and Baltimore, etc.
“Chris, as you and I know, it’s showing up in the polling. It’s the only thing that is sticking. Democrats suck with that.”
CNN’s Don Lemon says that the riots across the country have to stop because it might hurt the Democrats’ chances in November:

Democrats couldn’t care less about the countless businesses burned to the ground, once-great cities turning into flaming hellscapes, and millions of Americans fearing for their lives and livelihoods. They only care about power — but they’ve realized that they overplayed their hand in June and July, and the powers that be are panicking. Now, it remains to be seen if the Democrats can put their evil genie back in the bottle.
