Riots and looting are sensitive subjects for Politicians, but what will the subject do to voters in November? Major businesses closed amid the violent rioting on U.S. streets. Mashing windows and decimating stores of the entire stocked items prompted many major retail stores to close, change security, and set riot hours. Trump has been outspoken on the issue, but some politicians still will not denounce the violence from BLM or Antifa which appears to be Democrat backed and Democrat financed.
So America has been hearing from our President about the fact that Biden would event after major event of looting and rioting say nothing to denounce the organizations. Then it appeared on social media everywhere when you go online to Antifa.com it actually goes to donation site for Biden Campaign. Which for a bit did explain his not totally condemning the violence. Biden profits of business losses. He is financially benefiting from Antifa destruction. Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley actually made social media post in support of Rioters and Looters and the issue of the Feds taking the violent rioters into custody. You can’t make this stuff up. He mentions nothing of the cold blooded murder of Aaron Danielson on the same Portland streets by BLM Antifa member for wearing a Patriot Prayer hat.
These major retail stores have many employees which were directly effected by the riots and looting. How will this effect their vote in November? How much will retailers spend on supporting politicians that support them and their business. Small business failed by the crush of looting and damage to business. For many, in downtown Portland, will never return. The empty windows street after street show the effect on small businesses. The cost of looting and building destruction made the difference in staying open and closing for good. For small business and their supporters are likely to take the anger and frustration the the polls in November.
Washington Post article talks about how Covid hit business so hard and it was only exacerbated by loss of sales daily. Oregon is just one State suffering from Antifa and BLM. Viral videos of Target stores being looted shined a light to those who would never have even thought something like this would happen near them, to a store they frequented. Walmart at one point completely shut down stores for the potential event like Target had encountered. The fact that these violent riots and looting exist and Democrats are still pushing for these organizations to push their agenda of destruction and can still get votes defies logic. Benefiting from the Looting and Rioting seems to be a Biden thing, but evident that Antifa and BLM is hurting Business across the Nation.
