Police officers across the nation are being specifically targeted for murder by Antifa thugs and violent Democrat-allied rioters. Monday night, law enforcement personnel were shot and attacked from one corner of America to another. In St. Louis, Police Chief John Hayden said, “As we speak we’re trying to get control out of this city, still hearing gunfire and everything. I don’t know what else to say. This is horrible. Thank God, they’re alive.”

While these assaults and assassinations continue, Democrat big-city mayors sit by and let the mobs have the run of their metropolises. In New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio issues Antifa-friendly statements from city hall as mayhem manifests on his streets.

President Trump , in a White House Rose Garden speech Monday night, had this to say to cowardly Democrat mayors who are permitting Antifa to control their cities: “If governors throughout the country do not deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers to ‘dominate the streets,’ the U.S. military would step in to ‘quickly solve the problem for them,’ adding ‘We have the greatest country in the world. We’re going to keep it safe,’” according to The Detroit News.
In St. Louis, four police officers were shot by a rioter standing on the side of a police line. In Las Vegas, an officer was shot in the head, as a rioter walked up and shot him from behind. He is now on life support. Two officers were shot in Richmond, Virginia. In Buffalo, an SUV driven by a rioter drove into a group of law enforcement personnel, injuring two officers. In NYC, as previously noted, the streets are now under the effective control of Antifa, as police officers were targeted by rioters Monday night.
As that happened, Marxist NYC Mayor de Blasio praised rioters, including his own daughter, who were arrested while violently looting, robbing, and burning down the city. Violent riots are reported in many other cities such as Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, and Atlanta. Local authorities in those cities have imposed curfews in an attempt to regain control of their areas from heavily armed rioters.
There is no other word for this but violent insurrection. These are not loyal American citizens exercising their right of free speech. These are not peaceful demonstrators addressing a grievance. These are armed thugs who are killing brave police officers across the nation, as Democrat mayors twiddle their thumbs.
And as the mayoral inactions cost lives, national Democrats like Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and Hillary Clinton continue to side with the murderers and rioters. In several statements and actions over the past week, these Democrats have made plain their open sympathy with Antifa’s street tactics and with the armed scum who are turning American streets into war zones.
This, law and order, may be the defining theme in the November election. As the virus, the economy, and other issues of late fade from the headlines, the American people will be faced with a stark choice: Do they side with the president and safety for themselves and their loved ones or do they stand with those violent and murdering Democrat-allied and -funded forces who range across the streets of America at this very moment? It is perhaps the most important choice for the United States in our lifetimes.
