Two months ago, on June 18th, current Democrat vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris told “The Late Show” show Stephen Colbert that the then-just-emerging Black Lives Matter riots — or what she’d termed “protests” — “are not going to stop.”
“They’re not going to stop. This is a movement,” she emphatically declared.
“They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they’re not going to stop after Election Day. Everyone should take note of that on both levels, that they’re not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not.”
FLASHBACK: As violent rioting continues across Democrat controlled cities, Kamala Harris’ comments from June are striking: Protesters “should not” let up.

Keep in mind she made those remarks after left-wing Black Lives Matter extremists in Minnesota had already ravaged downtown Minneapolis …
Months later, with the BLM extremists whom Harris had plainly sided with having since destroyed numerous other communities, burnt down numerous other businesses, harassed numerous other innocent bystanders and even killed several people, her words from June have taken on new meaning to many, including Donald Trump Jr.
“I guess the ‘mostly peaceful protesters’ burning Kenosha and other communities to the ground took Kamala’s advice here to heart,” he tweeted on Thursday.

Not only did these riots lead to innocent families seeing their businesses be destroyed, but it also led to the fatal shootings of two rioters.
And so with all this in mind, the question becomes this: How does Harris plan to account for her decision two months ago to tell BLM extremists that they should not stop or let up — that they should continue their so-called “protests?”
It’s a question so pungent that some think it’d make a great campaign ad.
Look at some of the remarks/commentary on social media below:
The violence will continue. “They are not going to let up, and they SHOULD not”.
Great endorsement for violence Kamala.
This is @JoeBiden future.

The really crazy part is that Kamala Harris is literally calling for more rioting talking with Stephen Colbert

This is the most frightening thing I have seen on Twitter and the fact that she condones the riots, looting and mayhem in the streets should scare the hell out of anyone voting for this way of life. She advocates for it to continue. I can’t believe people want this for the USA.

Some Democrats have pushed back on Twitter by arguing that she’d been speaking specifically about the so-called “peaceful protests,” not the riots. But then the question becomes WHAT PEACEFUL PROTESTS?
Despite the media’s false insistence that the Black Lives Matter “protests” that have occurred nonstop across the country for weeks on end have been mostly “peaceful,” hundreds (if not thousands) of videos show otherwise.
Moreover, the video evidence and witness testimonials are so damning that support for BLM has cratered in some communities:
Democrats need to be extremely concerned about what’s happening in Wisconsin, where support for BLM has gone from +25 to +0 in 2 months. https://t.co/2wNMWoW6it

And because the extremist far-left movement is so inextricably linked to the Democrat Party — in strong part because of the rhetoric spouted by the likes of Harris — the party is now facing harsh electoral consequences.
“Trump is largely outperforming his 2016 benchmarks in some of the most important states to the Electoral College,” Fox News confirmed Friday. “Michigan: Biden is currently leading Trump by 2.6 points in the RCP average. Clinton led by 9.”
“Pennsylvania: Biden is currently leading Trump by 5.8 percentage points in the RCP average. Clinton led by 9.2. North Carolina: Trump and Biden are currently in a dead heat in the RCP average, despite sparse polling. There was a CNBC poll that came out Sunday giving Biden a 1-point lead. Clinton led by 1.7.”
This wasn’t the case in early June, when the path to victory for President Donald Trump looked so bad that media figures like Jonathan Chait, among many others, were confident that he stood no chance of defeating Biden come November.
Yet weeks later, members of the left-wing press are freaking out over the electoral defeat facing Democrats, though it may be too late to make a difference.
As noted by Trump-supporting liberal commentator Tim Pool, “Democrats have made their own bed by repeatedly choosing to side with the bad guys.
