President Trump’s re-election chances looked iffy as summer heated up. Ugly video of clashes between cops and black men made conservatives seem on the wrong side of the race debate. The left seized the opportunity to make theater of the issue. It was a box-office hit.
But the left’s fondness for theater invariably leads them to act up, and then overact. Predictably, they escalated their theater from drama to melodrama to Rambo movies. Peaceful protests grew into riots. Buildings were burned, stores were looted and people were killed.
Their smash-hit theatrical production became, well, just a smash-up.
The rioting culminated at the commencement of the Democratic National Convention which was held, virtually, in Joe Biden’s basement. Or wherever. People wondered, what will they say about the riots?
We soon learned what they would say. Not a damn thing.
