The Republican National Committee released a new ad this Tuesday designed to highlight how “left-wing anarchists are using chaos to destroy America” as Democrats watch sometimes with tacit approval and other times with beaming support.
Seen below, the video links the ongoing madness being perpetrated across the country by Black Lives Matter extremists — think police cruisers being burnt, police officers being run down, statues being toppled, etc. — with the incendiary rhetoric of Democrat political figures ranging from Nancy Pelosi to Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez.

The madness has been a daily event, with plenty occurring on Tuesday alone, as noted the next evening by Fox News host Sean Hannity on FNC’s “Hannity.”
“Last night two statues toppled by a horde of angry protesters — this time in Madison, Wisconsin. Around the same time a state senator was attacked by a crowd, a mob, you might say, pushed to the ground, punched and kicked in the head,” he said.
“Meanwhile here in Washington, D.C., a group actually set fire to a U.S. American flag, other so-called protesters vowing to rip down the Emancipation Statue in Lincoln Park.”
All of that was true.
The GOP’s ad also depicted presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden, a man who’s yet to condemn the BLM-inspired looting, rioting, violence, harassment and purging that’s overtaken the country ever since George Floyd’s death last month.
Instead, he’s been busy smearing congressional Republicans by claiming, in contradiction to the facts, that they haven’t been pursuing police reform efforts:
Instead of passing police reform or helping hardworking Americans get through this crisis, Republicans are jamming through another one of Trump’s unqualified nominees. It’s wrong.

Continuing his monologue Wednesday, Hannity called on Biden to address the nationwide madness and condemn all the wrongdoings that are being perpetrated.
“By the way, Joe Biden, you haven’t done a press conference in 83 days,” he said. “You’re hiding in your bunker. … Where do you stand on all of this, Joe? You want to be president in 132 days. How about speaking to the American people, how about getting out of the bunker if you’re capable of uttering two consecutive sentences without messing it up.”
“The president is issuing an executive order to protect national monuments including steep penalties for those who commit acts of vandalism, and then we have weak, cowering Joe. What does he have to say? The anarchy, the violence must end. Law and order must be restored. Every single American grandma, grandpa, mom’s, dads, our children, every American needs safety and security if they want any chance to pursue happiness.”
Yet as seen in the GOP’s ad, Democrats have been sacrificing the American people’s safety and security by cowering to the antics of BLM extremists.

But there’s a reason Democrats, including Biden, have been loathe to condemn the madness. According to the far-left website Vox, it’s because the increasingly extremist Black Lives Matter movement has permanently “changed” the party by making it solely about identity politics.
“The Democratic Party is increasingly a coalition of people who experience racism directly or base part of their identity on opposing it ideologically,” Vox notes.
In other words, it’s “increasingly” comprised of people who obsess over race, believe racists lie around every corner and — as the evidence makes clear — believe it’s worth achieving their dystopian vision of racial equality by any means necessary.
“The modern Democratic Party, for reasons of both demography and ideology, takes seriously the idea that to be Black in America is a different experience than being white in America,” Vox continues. “And that has formed a coalition that now takes Black Lives Matter as a multiethnic rallying cry.”
“As Matt Yglesias shows in his essay on ‘The Great Awakening,’ white liberals now express more liberal views on some racial issues than Black Democrats. In this case, the Democratic Party’s openness to ‘identity politics’ has led white liberals to a politics that reaches far beyond their own experiences.”
It’s led white liberal Democrats to become so out-of-touch with reality that even BLM extremists are sometimes puzzled by their behavior.

And thus you have the modern Democrat Party, a group of unhinged zealots so caught up in the zeal of identity politics that they see nothing wrong with defending looters and rioters, describing radical behavior as a “summer of love” and sitting idly by as the foundations of this nation are ripped asunder by a mob of their own supporters.
Like Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted this week, there’s a reason “Democratic politicians don’t fear the mob … Because they don’t need to. They control the mob. The mob operates with their permission. These are their foot soldiers. This is their militia.”
