Across the country, we’ve seen it happen again and again. A portion of the local population goes absolutely nuts, destroying property, attacking police, burning down businesses, and looting to their hearts’ content – all in the supposed name of racial justice.
Seeing that the Democrats in charge have no ability (nor intention) of restoring order, President Donald Trump sends in federal agents and/or the National Guard to help local law enforcement. Inevitably, the Democrats in Portland, Seattle, or wherever else accuse Trump of making things worse…because in their minds, it’s worse to tamp down an urban rebellion than to just let these anarchists do whatever they want.
So we were pleasantly surprised this week when Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth penned an op-ed for USA Today expressing his enormous gratitude for the president’s help in setting things right after the Jacob Blake riots.
“The president’s swift and bold response to support our law enforcement family and my community made it clear that he’s the strong leader Wisconsin and America needs. It’s also why I am proud to endorse President Trump for re-election this fall,” wrote Beth.
“It’s not just me,” Beth continued. “Thirty-eight other Wisconsin sheriffs have also endorsed the president. President Trump is backing the blue and we are proud to back him. At a time when violence is popping up in communities across the country, picking our nation’s top leader is more important than ever. Wisconsin, and all of America, needs a leader who will uphold the law, or we won’t have a country left.”
For all the talk about Tara Reade and his possible dementia and his extremely limited campaign schedule, we continue to believe that THIS is Joe Biden’s true Achilles heel. He is not strong enough or bold enough to truly stand up for America’s police at the moment they need support from every politician in the land. Democrats as a whole have been shockingly weak in their capitulation to Black Lives Matter and the destruction being done in their name. And for whatever “both sides” nonsense that Biden has mewled, it isn’t nearly enough.
At the end of the day, Americans need to know – at the very least – that the president will do everything he can to keep them safe. After the summer we just had, how can any voter believe that of any Democrat? How can they vote for a guy who refuses to stand up against riots and looting and stand up FOR the police?
We just don’t think it’s going to happen.
