Dale Jackson: Donald Trump would not have deleted Barry Moore’s meme — Moore should put it back up
After refusing to condemn rioting, looting and chaos in the streets during the Democratic National Convention, former Vice President Joe Biden has emerged from his basement to make a statement meant to draw the nation together.
Donald Trump may believe mouthing the words law and order makes him strong, but his failure to call on his own supporters to stop acting as an armed militia in this country shows you how weak he is.

Oh, nevermind, Biden has emerged from his basement to tell a silly lie being fabricated by fringe cable news hosts and Twitter armies of malcontents. The lie is that there is a militia of Trump supporters roaming major American cities and creating violence.
Look at this nonsense:
The "riots" are not Black Lives Matter marches gone wrong. Armed white nationalists are mobbing these cities to take advantage of protests and scare fellow white people into quietly siding with them. It's an old, tried and true strategy: using fear & anti-blackness for politics.

Biden doesn’t believe this, the media and their Democrats don’t believe this and neither does the cadre of sad cable news hosts who pretend this is a real thing.
President Donald Trump has been trying to address these problems and has been rebuffed by Democrat mayors who run Democrat cities in Democrat states with Democrat governors.
A quick timeline of this situation would make any sane person wonder why anyone would believe any of this.
We have gone from beautiful protests to understandable outrage, to “actually, looting is good” to, “Oh my God, it’s not liberals, these are all right-wingers and only Biden can stop them.”
Nice country you’ve got there. If you elect Donald Trump, something might happen to it, but if you elect Joe Biden, everything will be fine.
And maybe this threat of violence works, because the American media would rather see a U.S. Senator and his wife beaten to death in the streets of Washington, D.C. after the convention than admit that maybe the mob is out of control.
There is video of the incident and nobody laid a finger on Rand. These guys think it should be illegal to yell at them. https://t.co/5DFHRq2Oze

Eventually, Americans are going to have enough. Eventually, the mob will mess with the wrong person. Eventually, the violence will be returned in kind.
It’s happening now.
Homicide charges announced against Kyle Rittenhouse, accused of killing 2 at Kenosha protests https://t.co/VkcwPwlmL8

Now, this is stupid cosplay on all parts, including the prosecutors, because this kid won’t be convicted of homicide.
The dead white guys are masquerading as revolutionary street-toughs and finally found someone that was willing to push back.
The 17-year-old idiot in this incident was playing Minuteman and police officer because the real police aren’t allowed to.
This is a recipe for disaster that will play out repeatedly in this country if the mob of Joe Biden voters on cable news and in Congress don’t tell the mob of Joe Biden supporters in the street to knock it off.
Barry Moore, a Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Alabama’s Second Congressional District, saw this and accurately pointed out that barring some major change in behavior, more people will be hurt.
He did this in meme form:
First, tell me where he is wrong (because he isn’t).
The acts depicted in this image that he posted and subsequently deleted are accurate.
If Kyle Rittenhouse doesn’t have that gun he is either unconscious or dead. Period.
But Moore had to do what all politicians on the right have to do: he had to pretend he was sorry.
“I apologize for the graphic nature of a post earlier, showing scenes from the violence tearing through Kenosha,” Moore said in a lengthy statement Saturday evening. “I should have expressed my feelings about the situation in words, not just with a meme.”
I am not being critical of that, because it’s all part of the stupid game.
No one cares that Moore believes what he said. They want him to pretend otherwise.
The use of the meme cuts to the heart of the message.
They don’t believe his apology, and even Moore’s statement makes it clear that he still believes what he originally posted — but at least he took it down, right?
In my opinion, he should not have taken that image down.
President Donald Trump would not have deleted that image, and Moore should put it back up.
It would force America’s news media to go a level beyond, “This shouldn’t have been posted.”
He should go on their shows and make them explain what the problem is, make them look at the two unconscious people, and explain what they could have done.
The acquiescence is defeat. This ends the conversation, and that’s what the media and their Democrats want.
They always side with the bad guys, foreign countries, criminals, degenerates and lawless mobs.
But what if the American media actually showed those images side-by-side? Who is America going to side with?
They are going to side with the guy who said, “I don’t like that businesses and communities are being destroyed.”
Will they love his tactics? No.
Will they understand his feelings? Yes.
Americans don’t want 17-year-olds in the street defending people from thugs and criminals. They want the police doing that. That 17-year-old isn’t there if the police in Ferguson, Chicago, New York, Minneapolis, Seattle and Portland were allowed to do their jobs.
That is what the American people care about. Democrats see that, and that is why they are being so adamant about demanding the violence they supported and nurtured is stopped before it costs them an election.
