The most important video of 2020

On Monday, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden attempted to blame President Donald Trump for the violence and unrest the nation has seen during the last few months. But the video above tells a different tale. Democrats have been calling on their supporters to commit acts of violence and unrest for months, while at the same time calling the riots and looting in cities “mostly peaceful.”
As Democrats have watched Biden’s poll strength fall, and Trump’s rise, they are realizing that perhaps they made a mistake in encouraging people to destroy America’s streets. Now they want to shift the blame for their crimes onto President Trump.
Phil Shiver writes in The Blaze:
Many Americans have become increasingly frustrated as protests against racial injustice and police brutality have devolved into violent riots over the last several months, seemingly with little or no opposition from Democratic leaders.
Democratic officials in many cities where violent riots have taken place have often acquiesced to demands to cut police budgets even as lawlessness runs rampant.
In response, President Trump has called out the violence and has made law and order a major theme of his re-election campaign, suggesting that if Democrats have their way, the violence will only continue and increase.
“Make no mistake, if you give power to Joe Biden, the radical left will defund police departments all across America,” Trump said in his speech at the Republican National Convention last week. “They will pass federal legislation to reduce law enforcement nationwide. They will make every city look like Democrat-run Portland, Oregon.”
