Black Lives Matter-Antifa mobsLast year, more than a billion dollars was spent on damages to cities all across America. In Minneapolis alone, Black Lives Matter mobs damaged or destroyed over 1 500 businesses and buildings
Over 700 police officers were injured in the BLM riots — and that was back in June when the rioting was just getting going!
Black Lives Matter is associated with 91% of the riots which resulted the largest property loss in US insurance history.
Democrats incited the Black Lives Matter mobs for months as they destroyed communities across the country and insisted they were “peaceful protesters.”

It was necessary.
Studies found that when protests are described as “peaceful” or “non-violent” they tend to increase Democratic vote.
So despite the fact that cities were burning and being destroyed the liberal media insisted the protests were “mostly peaceful.”
John SextonHotAir provides more details about this phenomenon.
Just three days after George Floyd died in a shooting by a cop, and with protests erupting across the country, David Shor (progressive data analyst) issued a warning regarding the potential for riots.
Post-MLK-assasination race riots reduced Democratic vote share in surrounding counties by 2%, which was enough to tip the 1968 election to Nixon. Non-violent protests *increase* Dem vote, mainly by encouraging warm elite discourse and media coverage. https://t.co/S8VZSuaz3G. pic.twitter.com/VRUwnRFuVW

The research wasn’t his own. He was simply acting as an intermediary. Shor, at that time in history became an enemy to many angry people. His racism was accused. He made an apology, but his employer fired him.
Today, Ezra Klein published a piece about Shor’s work since then. His decision to have his project canceled worked out well. He gained a reputation as a data analyst who wasn’t willing to soften his message into something the client might want to hear. He founded his own company called Blue Rose Research where he’s been building an electoral simulation designed to predict what is likely to happen over the next decade in American politics. And once again, he has a message for Democrats that they are not going to like.
Democrats are well aware of their declining popularity. The Democrats can only wish they’re able to continue to win elections so that they remain in power.
It worked for Marxists, but it was a good idea!
