New York, NY — For those of you who have been paying attention, rioting is once again bad! That was the conclusion drawn by Don Lemon last night while he batted around low-rent analysis with Chris “Fredo” Cuomo. After months of encouraging “protests” and directly excusing the destruction of property and violence, Lemon has decided things need to calm down.
Has this change of heart come from some awakening to the dangers of what’s being propagated on the streets of American cities? Nah, he’s just scared it’ll help Trump.
After previously encouraging violence in the streets back in May and June, @CNN’s @ChrisCuomo and @donlemon are suddenly scared that the riots are helping President Trump get reelected. “Chris, as you know and I know it’s showing up in the polling.” – Lemon pic.twitter.com/fzLlKyykZG
Here’s a transcript if you can’t watch the video.

Just to be clear, these two chuckleheads actively encouraged violence prior to this is neither hyperbole or exaggeration.
In fact, Fredo posed the question, “Where in the constitution does it say protests have to be peaceful?!”

It’s foolish expecting Joe Biden to come in and save the day after he, his campaign, and the DNC have ignored the rioting since it’s inception. He can’t change the narrative now. They’ve picked a lane and have been in it for months!
Biden is the candidate of the party that supports this stuff and no amount of mental gymnastics (something he’d still likely break a hip doing” or ranting about Trump is going to change that.
Most of the American people are not stupid. They are fully aware that domestic terrorist groups like Black Lives Matter, Inc., the fascists of ANTIFA, and others are causing this horrid violence and destruction in our nation’s Democratic cities. Moreover, they are fully aware of the political allegiances of these people like.
If you want to embolden and cave to these anarchists and racist terrorists, vote for Joe. This is the calculus the Left has promoted. But Lemon’s comments show something more than just bad and partisan analysis. The media have realized that these riots could hurt their cause.
A common theme rang out on CNN, MSNBC, et. al., and that is Biden must “address” the rioting because it’s helping Trump. That is the only reason Don Lemon even cares about the countless black owned businesses that have been destroyed, that police officers have been permanently blinded due to the civil unrest in Portland, and now a man has been shot in the head trying to vandalize and burn down a car lot in Wisconsin.
Lemon sees it as a liability and is growing fearful Trump is getting a bump out of the lawlessness of Joe Biden’s voters burning cities to the ground. The American people are sick of this! Earlier today, I published an article discussing how 2020 has seen record numbers of Americans purchasing firearms. Weeks ago, these individuals were mocked and ridiculed by Lemon and the Left.
Unfortunately, Lemon’s wants are probably fool’s gold. Americans are not going to respond well to being held hostage. If Biden’s messaged is “elect the Democrat and then all these Democrats will stop destroying things,” that comes across as holding the country hostage.
Blaming Trump doesn’t work because these are obviously not Trump supporters causing the chaos.
Lemon and his cronies had a chance to take a stand months ago. Instead, they chose to omit and pretend it wasn’t happening. To the extent they did acknowledge it, they excused it as righteous indignation. Now they are going to pay the political price. Any poll gazing now is too late.
