Things are so much darker than they appear.
During a recent appearance on Fox, House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) admitted that many liberal mayors would “rather their city get torn down for some political message, and people don’t want that.”
According to Breitbart, Scalise stated, “Well, people want and people deserve to have safety and security in their communities and in their homes. And, you know, look, if Joe Biden’s going to look the other way, President Trump’s made it very clear, he’s going to protect your safety and security. It’s one of his top priorities, and it’s a duty of the commander-in-chief, and he’s offered to help those cities that have let their towns get overrun by mobs. Some have basically said they don’t want the help. They want — they’d rather their city get torn down for some political message, and people don’t want that.”
