As they see the president closing in on the polls and watch their own nominee lurch from befuddled gaffe to embarrassing meltdown, the Democrats are trying a new tack: Slamming (wink wink, nudge nudge) their own robots.
Long after the murders, the looting, the arson, the vandalism, the riots, the wanton destruction of property, and the killing of law enforcement officers by their own Antifa and Black Lives Matter puppets, now the Democrats try to gain some semblance of respectability back by hammering at the very forces they unleashed in the first place. Too little, too late, Nancy.
In a House speech on Thursday akin to a Japanese Imperial Navy apology for Pearl Harbor as the Enola Gay takes to the skies, Pelosi nervously intoned, “We support peaceful demonstrations. We participate in them. They are part of the essence of our democracy. That does not include looting, starting fires, or rioting. They should be prosecuted. That is lawlessness.”

PJ Media put it this way, “What you just heard was Nancy Pelosi turning on her own base. You know things are looking bad for the Dems when they’re forced to concede to reality, no matter how much their most loyal voters hate it…I wonder how BLM and Antifa will react to this? The Democrats have been covering for them this whole time, at every level of government. And if Nancy no longer finds them politically useful, how much longer will these Democrat mayors keep playing catch-and-release with these rioting scumbags? How much longer will these cities watch their law-abiding citizens flee in droves? Coddling these rioters is the worst mistake the Dems could’ve possibly made. Now they’re slamming the brakes as they veer toward a cliff. Can they regain control of the narrative before election day? Will anybody who’s been paying attention be fooled? Will the people whose lives have been destroyed by this rioting let bygones be bygones and keep voting for Democrats?”
It is interesting that Pelosi is now using the president’s very own talking points without admitting her past mistakes or giving him any credit. That’s how desperate they’ve become. That’s how satisfying this is.
