The looting and violence that occurred last night in Chicago is the latest example that even Democrats seem to have lost control over the agitators who were once useful for them in their attempt to damage President Trump, Buck Sexton, the host of "The Buck Sexton Show," said Monday.
Lori Lightfoot, the liberal Chicago mayor, said in no uncertain terms on Monday that the city was going to examine security footage inside the dozens of stores that were ransacked and work to bring all those responsible to justice. Her tough stance comes days after Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler was forced to plea with protesters not to trap police officers inside their precincts and set them on fire.
Sexton said it is smart not to assume these Democrats are a bunch of “strategic geniuses.”
“I think they may have largely miscalculated here,” he said. “I don’t think that they can stop this.”
He said there is a chance that the looters and anarchists eventually figure out that they are actually helping Trump’s reelection bid, and stop the violence. But it is becoming clearer and clearer that Democrats have lost control.
“It’s up to the looters and the rioters to decide that they’re going to put the brakes on this for a bit,” Sexton said. He continued, “They can’t stop these lunatic leftists. And this may really cost them.”
But it seems some Democrats, like Lightfoot, are willing to watch their cities burn. Despite the unrest on Sunday night that made Chicago like a warzone, Lightfoot said she agreed with Gov. J.B. Pritzker, another Democrat, that it was “not an incident that requires the National Guard.”
More than 100 people were arrested in the chaos on Sunday night in Chicago. Besides the unrest in downtown, it was another bloody weekend in the city. There were three people killed and another 35 shot in acts of violence across the city.
Sexton has said that Democrats have real concerns about Joe Biden facing off against Trump. They know that Biden was a mediocre senator with no real achievements and is now a liability every time he opens his mouth.
Violence in the streets was going to be a top selling point for Democrats. It almost seemed like there was an unseen pact between Democrats and the looters that once Biden is elected, the streets will return to normal. But that seems to be no longer the case.
