Violent protests burned Milwaukee and other major cities. But they were the unmentioned elephant in the room at last week’s DNC.

The Democrats bend their reality toward a referendum on President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, but they bend it away from any mention of growing violence in American big cities run by liberal Democratic administrations.

Summer of Love protesters dragged Adam Haner from his truck in Portland Sunday night and beat him senseless. Then, while he lay defenseless in the street, a social justice warrior delivered the kick de grâce to his head. Meanwhile, the police kept an extremely safe social distance from the “protest.” Now they’re searching for the suspected kicker. aptly named Marquise Love.

Peaceful protests? President Clinton might say, “it depends on the meaning of “peaceful.”

A BBC headline in June reported, “27 police officers injured during largely peaceful anti-racism protests in London.”

And ABC News continued the trend last weekend reporting that “peaceful demonstrations intensified” in Oakland. Rioters set a courthouse on fire and assaulted police officers.

President Obama once said that shovel ready jobs “weren’t as shovel ready as we expected.”

Peaceful protests don’t seem to be as peaceful as we expected.

Counterpoint, Portland, Mayor Ted Wheeler

This is my Counterpoint cartoon from last week. It appeared alongside a Rob Rogers cartoon and here’s what I had to say about it:

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler joined the mob Wednesday night and got booed and teargassed for his efforts. And I got a cartoon idea. But my sketch contained a couple of mental maneuvers making it  tough on the poor reader. Not only that, my lefty Counterpoint counterpart Rob Rogers didn’t care for the whole point of the thing. He thought Mayor Wheeler had done a splendid job over the past 50 days during which the mob trashed his town’s working class shopkeepers.  And, “oh, by the way,” Rob added, “why don’t you tweak that cartoon and just have the woman say, “Where’s the mayor when you need him”? Perfect. Thanks, Rob, you ignorant slut.
