‘Can the Left be trusted with power’
As Donald Trump was about to accept the Republican nomination … with warnings that “No one will be safe in Biden’s America,” National Public Radio was doing its small part to make sure the president would be re-elected. … in the form of a lengthy interview … with [the] author of “In Defense of Looting.” The book makes the case for looting because it:
“Attacks some of the core beliefs and structures of cis-hetero-patriarchal racial capitalist society”; “rejects the legitimacy of ownership rights and property”; and “reveals all these for what they are: not natural facts, but social constructs benefiting a few at the expense of the many, upheld by ideology, economy and state violence.”
- What else are [voters] seeing? A CNN chyron from a burning Kenosha: “Fiery but mostly peaceful protests after police shooting.”
- A video of an outdoor diner at a Washington, D.C., restaurant being yelled at by Black Lives Matter protesters because she won’t raise a fist in solidarity.
- Republican Senator Rand Paul and his wife getting harassed by a swarm of protesters as they left the White House. …
Trump [was] mocked in 2017 for warning that if statues of Robert E. Lee come down, then George Washington and Thomas Jefferson statues will be next — and then radical demonstrators [did] exactly that three years later.
The question it leaves in the minds of wavering voters is: Can the left be trusted with power?
