You’re not seeing it. You think people don’t see the boarded up high-end stores in Mid-town Manhattan or the Loop. But they do. Then they go buy a gun and move to the suburbs as soon as they can. The attempt to tell people everything is all right while flames are burning in the background does not reassure them. It does destroy the credibility of the mainstream media that tried to peddle that stuff. Saying you will defund the police does set off a panic. Saying you will support the police and restore order is calming and reassuring. Saying the virus will kill us all and everything needs to be locked down indefinitely does cause people to panic. Saying we are working on a cure is reassuring. I hope that clarifies it all: the Democrats are stoking panic and the public is starting to run away from them.
