Was this a way to fire up and get out black voters for Democrats?

    Joe Biden will now 100% pick a black female VP running mate. He will run on a platform of giving Reparations. It will be a divided Us vs Them rhetoric campaign.

    Were these riots a way to fire up black voters for Democrats even though these riots were in blue Democrat cities with Dem leadership in mainly blue states?

    They still aren’t getting my vote, they’ve done nothing to deserve it.
    When I get the random texts from the spammers, I reply that DJT is the only choice and then they stop texting me:flag:

    Perhaps not the sole idea, but a combo of riots and economic collapse

    Dems have mentioned reparations quite a bit recently. Biden's campaign manager was asked about them on Martha McCallum's show and she smiled and danced around answering it.

    The riots happened due to an isolated incident. History is full of similar events. No doubt some will try to gain political advantage over the riots, but they didn’t get a cop to kill a guy on video.

    I still have a hard time understanding how the left can blame Trump for any of this. The shutdowns are lasting longer in liberal areas. The Floyd incident happened in a liberal city in a liberal state, and most of the rioting is happening in those same liberal cities and states.

    I know they'll try, but having a hard time understanding how the blame game will work. It will be interesting to watch.

    Yeah, that wasn't what I was trying to say. My point is that they will use this for their platform and run off of it.

    They have been for the last 6 days. That this is Trump's America. Acting as if an unjust killing is a new thing and that it never happened with a Dem President. The responses by mayors and Governors was weak. That lead to absolute chaos and a riot.

    The demonstrations happened due to an isolated incident. No doubt there would have been some riots anyway but Antifa and BLM made sure that it got really bad.

    You can bet they had plans in place and were just waiting for a spark. In this case the protests are justified (not the riots), but eventually something would have been caught on tape that would have been close enough to spark it off.

    That's what happened with the anti-gun movement "March for our lives" funded by Soros. They waited for a tragedy and then poured gas on it to capitalize on the emotions of people politically. That's my questions here. Is that going to happen now?

    The Democrats are trying to goad Trump into deploying the military, in the hope that a Tiananmen Square style slaughter will occur.

    Then the leftist media will broadcast footage of the bodies 24/7 until November, and Biden will win.

    The leftists are setting a trap. Hopefully DJT doesn't fall into it.

    BET founder Johnson requests 14 Trillion $ in Reparations for Slavery as cash not programs to promote financial equality. Right!

    I demand 15 Trillion in restitution from all convicted felons for the crimes they committed against Americans.
    This is fun. Your turn!

    Then once everything is burned down and nothing left, they'll wonder why the military didn't start shooting.

    Minneapolis is run by Democrats. That's the lesson they should learn.

    The perfect running mate for Slow Joe, is the mayor of shicago, the one that looks like Beetlejuice.
    How come nobody is talking about her?

    She's the mayor of Chicago, which means her closet is full of skeletons that would come out right before the election. Nobody in that town is clean.
