The 2020 election is taking a serious turn.
That’s bad news for the Democrats.
Mike Pence shut down Nancy Pelosi by calling out this act of political suicide.
One way Democrats can blow the 2020 election is by surrendering to the passions of the mob and allowing the extremism in the streets to define the party.
If that occurs, President Trump canshift the election to being a choice between two alternatives where the Democrats want to stand by and cheer on a mob that wants to burn down America, and the President who wants to preserve the nation’s culture and history.
Nancy Pelosi helped the President ease into that election framing when at a press conference, she defended rioters that tore down a statue of Christopher Columbus in her native Baltimore – where her father once served as mayor – and threw it in the harbor.
“People will do what they do. It’s a — I do think that from a safety standpoint it would be a good idea, to have it taken down if the community doesn’t want it. I don’t know that it has to be a commission, but it just could be a community view. And sometimes it’s something that’s been there, that view has been there for a while,” Speaker Pelosi told the fake news media.
Vice President Pence fired back in an exclusive interview with Breitbart during a trip to Pennsylvania.
Pence slammed House Speaker Pelosi for “surrendering” to rioters, arsonists and terrorists.
“Tearing down monuments is not protests,” Pence told Breitbart. “Burning churches is not free speech. To have the Speaker of the House tacitly affirm the rule of the mob is unconscionable. For Speaker Nancy Pelosi to say ‘they will do what they will do’ is a surrender to the mob. We’re not going to have it. The American people know the foundation of our prosperity is law and order and the rule of law. We’re going to continue to stand strong for the rule of law against the rule of the mob.”
The big question facing voters in the 2020 election is who can return America to a semblance of normal life.
Part of that includes rebuilding the economy after state governments’ instituted panic shutdowns in March and April over the coronavirus.
But part of that will also consist of defending civil society in America and ridding the cities of the crime that now plagues their streets.
Nancy Pelosi just gave the Trump campaign a major assist with that unforced error.
And Vice President Pence was more than happy to make sure Democrats paid a price by twisting in the knife with his response.
