Because Biden needs their votes. That is why the out of control crime that we now see in New York City, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, and Kenosha will be coming to your community if Joe Biden is elected POTUS. Vote for President Trump and the Republicans on November 3rd, America. The country is on the line.

Why won’t Biden condemn Antifa or BLM violence?
By Ben Shapiro, Pittsburgh Post Gazette, September 6, 2020
On Monday, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was finally forced to confront the left-wing violence that has been plaguing America’s major cities for months on end: riots in New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago, Portland and Seattle, among other cities. For a full week, the Democratic National Convention ignored that ongoing violence, driven by members of the Black Lives Matter and antifa movements. The media went right along with the narrative that violent riots have been “mostly peaceful,” that conservatives were “pouncing” on occasional violence for political purposes and that the true threat to American safety could be found in Donald Trump’s Twitter feed.
The only solution to America’s ills, Mr. Biden held, could be found in repeating pernicious slogans about supposed systemic American racism. On Aug. 9, Mr. Biden tweeted: “It’s been six years since Michael Brown’s life was taken in Ferguson — reigniting a movement. We must continue the work of tackling systemic racism and reforming policing.” Never mind that two state investigations and the Obama Department of Justice found that Brown was justifiably shot; no facts are necessary to continue repeating mantras.
Then, a small Wisconsin town, Kenosha, burst into flames.
At first, the media tried to excuse the burning, rioting and looting. After all, they proclaimed, this was justified rage at the systemic racism of American policing. It simply didn’t matter that Jacob Blake, who was shot by police, had resisted arrest, bucked police officers off of him, ignored their orders and then reached into his vehicle, where a knife was later found on the driver’s side floorboards. It also didn’t matter that Mr. Blake has faced vicious criminal charges and had an open warrant for sexual assault and domestic violence — and that the police reportedly arrived only after being called by a woman who alleged that Mr. Blake digitally raped her in front of one of her children. The police were the problem.
And Mr. Biden went right along with that generalized narrative, excoriating the police for the shooting of Mr. Blake. Sure, Mr. Biden may have softly tut-tutted violence. But the real problem was the American system. On Aug. 28, Mr. Biden tweeted that George Floyd and Mr. Blake can’t become “just another pair of hashtags,” and that instead, it was time to “reverse systemic racism.”
