Whether you are for Joe Biden, Donald Trump, or an independent, you need to know that the latest gambit from the Trump campaign is very interesting. You take a place where street protests are actually violent like Portland and send in federal enforcers with no insignia and they ratchet up more violence. The campaign takes the video and produces commercials that make it seem like it is happening all over the country. Then you threaten to send your inciters, actually border patrol agents to other cities. Within days, violence does spread in other communities and you have more videos of fires and beatings that are designed to make you the voter so afraid you might take the next bus to Toronto if you can get in.
Now, an important point. The Portland protest situation is not acceptable, but sending in Federal police officers is very dangerous. If the President does the same in Philadelphia., Chicago, and Los Angeles it could be a an actual calamity for the cities and his own chances in November.
Recently the White House Chief of Staff said these words, “The only thing standing between you and the mob is Donald Trump.”
Memo to Mark Meadows,
Who is the mob??
Final note: Of course the other side can turn it around and blame the President for inciting the problem. In this era there is plenty of video and sound archived for paid TV , Radio and internet commercials. Everything that Trump and Biden say in public is recorded.
