The #RNC may not only end tonight with a law and order message undercurrent, but it may become the GOP’s ultimate demise. This is politically ironic because Trump and Pence may have allowed more Americans to die, broken more laws and caused more chaos, and wasted more taxpayer dollars than any other POTUS or VP in modern history. How can the wrongful Republicans claim that Joe Biden and Kamala Haris would cause the violence which is already happening under Trump-Pence?
Would Trump's gaudy lifestyle and his real estate empire be worth anything without $885 million in #USA government grants? Also, has anyone seen or heard the Trumps play the piano or quote The bible?
The message an impeached President Trump and Vice President Pence have kept delivering over and over again throughout months of civil unrest following the May police killing of George Floyd, who was an innocent Black man in Minneapolis accused of having fake currency. The Republicans call protesters thugs and anarchists and have deployed federal agents to cities despite local opposition.
VP Pence inaccurately suggested Biden supports “defunding the police,” a position Joe Biden has constantly rejected. “The violence must stop, whether in Minneapolis, Portland, or Kenosha,” Pence said. “We will have law and order on the streets of this country for every American - for every race and creed and color.” This is happening under Trump-Pence and they can’t deny it.
That was one of the few references to the increasingly combustible protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, after a Black man, Jacob Blake, was shot in the back by police officers.
Then a white teenager who was reportedly spotted attending a recent Trump rally was arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of two protesters in Kenosha. Wisconsin’s lieutenant governor told MSNBC the suspect was apparently a militia group member who “decided to be a vigilante and take the law into his own hands and mow down innocent protesters.”
The Republican speeches were in contrast to the Democratic convention last week and before the Kenosha unrest began when multiple speakers proclaimed that “Black Lives Matter.” Floyd’s name was never mentioned during Wednesday’s Republican program.
In the final analysis, when the Republicans insist on living by the sword, they may wind up going down the same way through a repudiation at the ballot box.
