However, there were violent demonstrations against Biden, only they came from the far left. In Seattle, Portland and Denver, Antifa mobs staged demonstrations that included assaults, burning the American flag, vandalizing a Democratic Party headquarters and multiple arrests. You can see a lengthy round-up with photos here:
And here’s more…
Note: not a MAGA cap in the bunch. Their profane banners included one reading, “We don’t want Biden, we want revenge” with a drawing of a semi-automatic rifle. (Note to Nancy Pelosi: Now, THAT’S violent insurrectionist rhetoric.) Others boldly declared, “We are ungovernable!” Somehow, I get the feeling that’s about to change.
All through the year, radical left anarchists like this were able to riot, loot, attack and burn to their hearts’ content, knowing that local Democrats would protect them, while national politicians and media would conveniently blame their violence on Trump, while also calling him Hitler if he did anything to stop their violence.
They don’t seem to realize that everything changed at 1pm EST, Wednesday. Those troops that Nancy Pelosi called “stormtroopers” when they were stopping the Antifa thugs from attacking federal buildings, businesses and police during the election campaign are now “defenders of democracy against violent insurrectionists,” and Pelosi poses for selfies with them. In fact, she thinks there aren’t enough of them – oh, and that they need machine guns.
I have a feeling that the Antifa punks are soon to discover that their free ride is over. They’ve outlived their usefulness. Now, they’re just a nuisance, a source of bad press that spoils the “unity/Kumbaya/We’re all overjoyed Joe is President” narrative. Republicans have no interest in saving them from the Democrats, and Democrats will no longer protect them from Republicans.
They may think they’re “ungovernable,” but they’re not. They just became expendable.
