Readers Write: Emperor’s new clothes, anyone?



Billions of e-mails, millions of Tweets, and multi-thousands of Letters to the Editors of newspapers across the country––both in print and online––and find not one message of objection or disgust or fear from a leftist about this escalating domestic-terrorism crime wave.

The only conclusion any sentient person can draw is that these Biden supporters approve of this behavior, somehow believing that if enough chaos and crime takes place, Americans will vote for the guy who promises to end it, ole basement Joe himself.

Of course, the liberal (ahem) grown-ups who are supporting this illegal and criminal behavior have children and grandchildren themselves. Who would blame any of their offspring from concluding that if they don’t like someone’s opinion or style or philosophy, it’s perfectly acceptable to light that person’s car on fire, punch that woman in the face and knock out her teeth and then throw her to the ground, smash the windows of this guy’s homegrown business and steal all his goods, blind that offender with a laser beam, or shoot him or her dead?

This is what leftists are teaching their children and grandchildren, a crime for which all of them should be indicted.

President Trump has offered immediate help to all the mayors of the Democrat-run cities in which this violence is taking place, but following orders from the moneybags funding this mayhem, they refuse his offers, leaving the citizens they’ve taken an oath to protect in abject fear.

What a preview of our country if a Democrat is even voted for dogcatcher, much less president!

Editor’s Note: A recent U.S. intelligence assessment reviewed by the Reuters news agency said most of the violence at domestic protests appears to have been driven by opportunists. But the assessment also said there was some evidence that organized extremists from both the left and the right were tied to the violence or promoting it online


  1. I have carefully read the June 3, 2020 Reuters news agency article referenced in the above editor’s note ( A much more accurate title for the article would have been, “U.S. assessment finds opportunists extremists drive protest violence”. This article was written long before hours of video tape of the riots in Democrat controlled cities caused the public to finally realize that BLM the slogan and BLM the Marxist movement were not one and the same. As for the modern day “Brownshirts” know as Antifa, no comment is necessary.

  2. As Cuomo said in one of his covid TV reports, peaceful protest is an American right. Rioting, looting, burning, and violence are criminal behavior . It should not be tolerated. Innocent people are harmed. Businesses are destroyed. If the Mayors can not control it, they should ask for federal help. We can not tolerate violence in the streets!!! For me, this has nothing to do with politics. I don’t care what party the Mayors belong to! Their job is to ensure safety for their citizens.
