You can almost smell the sweat. The Democrats and their media handmaidens are starting to panic about Joe Biden’s prospects.
The proof comes in their efforts to wish away the wave of crime and violence engulfing many American cities. Their argument can be boiled down to two false claims. First, it’s President Trump’s fault. Second, it’s not that big of a wave.
The first is patently absurd on its face. Democratic mayors running nearly all those cities are pulling back cops and rejecting federal help. The blood is on their hands.
The second claim is outrageously cold-hearted. It means the left sees hundreds of murders, mostly of black men, and the wholesale destruction of property as small prices to pay for putting Biden in the White House.
And so they whistle as they pass the graveyards.
