I’m sorry to say you seem to be in extreme denial. The fact is there has been a whole lot of violence in Democrat-run cities. Did you miss the riots in Minneapolis? The 90 days of fun and games in Portland? The hysterical part has been watching Violence Deniers, like you, describe the “Fiery but mostly peaceful protests" as flames shoot up behind them. The violence is all in Democrat run cities. The Democrat Mayors are too weak and too intimidated to act effectively to maintain or restore order. Leftists, Antifa Anarchists, and BLM revolutionaries are trying to overthrow the government by spreading chaos and disorder, by attacking the police, and dismantling the criminal justice system. They foment riots, commit arsons, and abet looting by opportunistic criminals and gangs. Murders and shootings are skyrocketing as Democrats defund the police. Lawless protest zones proliferate. BLM agitators invade diners and make frightened customers kneel or get beaten up. Police are shot and attacked. Only people with their heads in the sand refuse to see the actual violence overwhelming Democrat cities.
