White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany obliterated the Democrats on Monday by revealing the danger that they present to the average American citizen.
McEnany sat down with Fox & Friends for an interview the day before the election where she pointed to the businesses in Democrat-led cities being forced to board up their windows in preparation for post-election unrest as “all the proof you need that the left should not be given federal power.”
Co-host Steve Doocy asked McEnany about reports that retailers were gearing up for civil unrest from the left should they lose the election.
“They are increasing security in Portland, in Philadelphia, in Lansing, Michigan; Baltimore, Charlottesville, Detroit, Jamesville, Wisconsin, Chicago, New York City, and Washington, DC. What does that say to you about the state of America in 2020 that, if a certain candidate is elected or re-elected people are going to, rather than vote to impact change, they’re going to try to break a window?” Doocy asked.
“Notice what those cities have in common. They’re all Democrat cities. What are they saying with this boarding up, with this civil unrest that they’re expecting? They’re saying, ‘If you don’t choose the left’s chosen candidate, we will send the left out to attack you. That’s as close to extortion as you can get and Joe Biden has the power to say, ‘Stand down’ to the mob. Will he do it?” McEnany replied.
“This is all the proof you need that the left should not be given federal power. We deserve the great American tradition of democracy, of peaceful elections, of accepting the vote of the American people, but the boarded-up windows, the closed-down stores tell you all you need to know about the modern American left. The violence is unacceptable and they are not deserving of federal power,” she added.
Fear of civil unrest has worsened amid reports that the declaration of a winner could be delayed a number of days – creating an unprecedented level of uncertainty surrounding the U.S. presidential election.
The National Retail Federation (NRF) represents approximately 18,000 businesses and has been preparing for potential post-election unrest for some time.
“There’s certainly a chance that we could be facing, no matter what happens, property damage threats and violence,” said Stephanie Martz, the NRF’s chief administrative officer and general counsel, in remarks to USA Today.
American voters are equally concerned that the delayed results will lead to post election violence. A recent USA Today/Suffolk University poll (pdf) discovered that around 75 percent of them said they are worried about the possibility of unrest.
“Voters on both sides traditionally expect a trick-or-treat on Election Day,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk Political Research Center, told USA Today. “In this election, there is a much deeper fear of violence not only on Election Day, but for many days thereafter.”
Local and state officials across the country are considering activating the National Guard to support the election and stand-by in case civil unrest breaks out.
On Sunday morning, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden claimed that if elected, he promised to “end Donald Trump’s chaos and end this crisis.”
But Republican rep. Dan Crenshaw reminded Sleepy Joe exactly what was causing the “chaos.”
Crenshaw slammed the Democrats’ anti-police riots, assaulting of officers, burning buildings, looting stores and establishing police-free zones.
“Trump’s chaos? Last I checked, businesses weren’t boarding up their windows because they were afraid of Trump supporters,” Crenshaw tweeted.
During the president’s second to last rally, he warned about the Demorats’ violent threats surrounding the election.
“Biden’s far-left supporters are threatening to loot and rob tomorrow if they don’t get their way,” he continued. “Rioting, looting and arson will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I’m telling you that right now.”
“You know I hate to see where they put boards up on a window. You notice I hate to say it but it’s true: These are Democrat-run cities and states.”
