7 Things: Democrats now oppose mob violence, UAB to punish students for coronavirus violations, Saban says football is still a go and more …
7. Trump wants people to die, apparently
- U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) said that since President Donald Trump is holding rallies during a pandemic, he’s “deliberately killing people,” even though Biden will start campaigning again.
- Murphy continued on to say that his actions are “sending a clear message that the CDC should be ignored,” adding, “His plan is to kill people. Let’s just say it.” He doubled down by saying, “The next 50,000 people who die are their responsibility.” He also tweeted a picture of the front row of Trump’s Republican National Convention acceptance speech.
6. Rogers: There’s no vote-by-mail issue
- While on Alabama Public Television’ “Capitol Journal,” U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-Saks) said that the issue of mail-in-voting brought by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is “fabricated.”
- Rogers mentioned that the “storage bins” that have been removed have been periodically removed for decades. He added that Pelosi “wants nationwide universal mail-in ballots because she thinks it helps the Democrats.”
5. Barry Moore under fire for defending Kyle Rittenhouse
- Former State Representative Barry Moore (R-Enterprise), Republican nominee for the Second Congressional District in Alabama, has since apologized and deleted a post that he made on Facebook in support of Kyle Rittenhouse, who has been charged with two homicides for actions during the Kenosha protests.
- Moore posted a picture that described two previous victims of mob violence as not fighting back and then a picture of Rittenhouse saying he “did fight back.” Moore apologized for the post, saying, “I should have expressed my feelings about the situation in words, not just with a meme.”
4. Majority of coronavirus deaths are people with underlying conditions
- Data released from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that 94% of coronavirus deaths in the United States have been with people who had other health conditions, too.
- This data also confirms that only 6% of deaths were listed with the coronavirus being the only cause. A majority of underlying conditions were influenza, pneumonia, respiratory failure, hypersensitive disease, diabetes, cardiac arrest, heart failure and more.
3. We can still play football
- The state of Alabama and the Auburn University football team have seen an increase in cases but University of Alabama head football coach Nick Saban is advocating for the football season to continue and making sure that it’s about the players so they can play.
- Saban mentioned that the focus should also be making sure that we can play safely, and “If we can’t do that, I think somebody will make a decision that maybe we shouldn’t play. But I don’t think that we should not try.”
2. Students at UAB to be suspended for not following guidelines
- While Alabama’s plan for dealing with the coronavirus seems to be working, the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) has announced that for students who violate the on-campus policy of coronavirus guidelines won’t be allowed to continue classes for the fall semester.
- UAB President Dr. Ray Watts held a press conference where he said, “For our students, there’s a progressive Code of Conduct disciplinary path. For employees, their supervisors and others will advise them that they need to be compliant. If they’re not, then they will not be able to come on this campus.”
1. Democrat tone shift is a reaction to bad polls
- The media and their Democrats have apparently made the calculated decision that their chances of defeating President Donald Trump are being impacted by their continued support and acquiescence to the angry mob tearing apart major American cities, so they have decided that they will both decry the violence and start trying to pin it on right-wing agitators.
- Unfortunately for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, the American people have eyes and have been following the rioting in Portland and other cities over the last 90+ days. Democratic leadership knows that burning American flags, Antifa, Black Lives Matter and general lawlessness in American cities will make that a hard sell.
