The Left is going to elect Donald Trump
because they don’t know when to quit.
The near-fatal ambush of two police officers in the overwhelmingly Black neighborhood of Compton in Los Angeles is the predictable result of the ritualistic cop bashing practiced by the political Left and sanctioned by their Amen corner in the Resistance media. Don’t expect any NFL millionaire to tape the names of these police officers to their helmets. In the curious alchemy of progressivism, racism is the problem, Black kids killing each other in Chicago, St. Louis and Milwaukee is the result, bashing cops is the solution.
Madison WI is soliciting criminals and drug abusers to second-guess, at their leisure, the split-second decisions of police officers facing drug-crazed criminals on the street at night. Progressive Dane — with the active connivance of The Capital Times — is trying to discredit the mild-mannered alder most supportive of Madison police.
Which brings us to U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass — a favorite of Comrade John Nichols, congressman Mark Pocan and the A.O.C. Squad. Markey called Monday 09-14-2020 for police to be disarmed. “Ban tear gas and rubber bullets,” he tweeted.
Police retreat, criminals advance
“Far more shocking than the rioters themselves has been the associated spectacle of police and political authorities across America standing down in the face of night after night of criminal behavior directed at the lives and livelihoods of innocent, law-abiding citizens.” So writes William McGurn after purchasing his first firearm, making the Wall Street Journal columnist one among 5 million first-time gun purchasers this year. Of the newly armed, McGurn writes:
Many don’t fit the stereotype: African-Americans account for the largest percentage jump in gun ownership, while women are 40% of first-time buyers. These new buyers join an even larger demographic: the 43% of American households that already have a gun.
The record gun sales for 2020 may have implications for swing states in November as well. In Pennsylvania alone … there are 276,648 first-time gun owners this year.* To put this in perspective, in 2016 Donald Trump won Pennsylvania by 44,292 votes.
Let’s see this billboard in Madison!
BLM chants “no justice, no peace.” But experience in cities across America proves what the Werkes has been saying all summer: No peace, no justice.
Homicides in New York City spiked by almost 50% in August amid budget cutbacks, compared with the same month in 2019. The homicide rate in Atlanta is up nearly 150% since the protests following the May 25 killing of George Floyd in police custody in Minneapolis. In Madison 176 shots fired through August 31 compared with 99 a year ago.
Six billboards declaring “No Police, No Peace” have gone up, two each in New York City, Dallas, and Atlanta, thanks to Heritage Action for America. (One in Atlanta stares at CNN headquarters! Delicious!) (More here.)
The Werkes boldly predicts!
The gray lab coats squirted Ol’ Sparky, the Werkes’ Eisenhower-era mainframe computer, with enough WD-40 to bathe an elephant and asked the clattering contraption to forecast Dane County’s 2020 vote for Trump.
Four years ago, 71,275 (or 23%) voted Trump. Ol’ Sparky predicts 86,276 this November — a 15,001 increase in a swing state that gave the Orange Gargoyle the Presidency by only 22,748 votes. * As for first-time gun buyers in Wisconsin, the Nat’l Shooting Sports Federation estimates there are 135,133 first-time gun owners in Wisconsin this year.
⇒ Those boarded-up windows in Downtown Madison? They’re Trump for President billboards!
Blaska’s Bottom Line: McGurn and those other 5 million will need their guns on Wednesday, November 4. Or whenever this thing is settled. The Left is angry and they always live the motto “by whatever means necessary.”
