Skip to comments.Don Lemon turns anti-riot now that they poll poorly for the Democrats

CNNs Don Lemon is now anti-riot, but not because looting and violence are wrong.
The cable news host who bills himself as a serious, objective journalist opposes the anti-police riots now because he is worried that the destruction and mayhem will hurt the Democratic Partys electoral chances in the fall.
How is that for a principled stand?
Lemons about-face on the righteousness of rioting came Tuesday evening as his CNN colleague Chris Cuomo warned that the anti-police violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, where two rioters have been shot and killed, is a Rorschach test for where this country is.
Cuomo, who appears also to have experienced a change of heart on the issue of anti-police rioting due to bad polling numbers, added, I think it probably represents the biggest threat to the Democratic cause.
Lemon agreed, saying Cuomo took the words right out of his mouth.
The ongoing violence in American cities is an increasing vulnerability for Dems, communications professional and Bulwark publisher Sarah Longwell said on Aug. 24. Its popping in my focus groups as well. Americans were originally on the side of protesters. But as the unrest continues, attitudes are shifting. Its the one R talking point starting to stick.
She added, This is why Trump is leaning so hard into the LAW AND ORDER message. Its starting to resonate and beyond Trumps base. And my guess is youll hear a lot about violence at the convention as Rs want to make sure they connect it to Democratic lead cities and not Trumps America.

I think the dems are starting to smell their own fear. That scares them even more.
Please dont riot
It helps Trump
Boy what rock hard morals libtards go by nowadays
It’s too late to stop that train
The DNC, the NFL, MLB and others,... there's a great big
the polls were always fake
Pass the popcorn please.
Who'da thunk burning cities to the ground would be unpopular with the voters? Not Lemon, Cuomo, Pelosi, Fatty Nadler, and gang.
Look for Soros to put the word out through his myriad subversive groups to cool it until after the election. Watch for the violent rioting, murder, mayhem and arson to be reduced quickly.
You can have mine. I've eaten so much I'm feeling ill.;-)
Schumer is having the same 180 on opening schools.
Many of us called this long ago..... the democrat plan to make the nation miserable, poor, and angry has instead created a massive backlash. They own all of this and the voters are paying attention.
It looks like the 24/7 “don’t believe your lying eyes” propaganda blew up in their faces...
LAW AND ORDER starting to resonate and beyond Trumps base
That is just silly. People in the country always value order, discipline, and peace. The desire for law and order is NOT just now "starting to resonate." The Dems are just too dense to understand that is how most of the country always is and always will be. They live in a dream world where they firmly believe people want totalitarian communism, tyranny, and perpetual anarchy.
The tiger has been poked. It is feared that the response will extend beyond the rioting localities, namely against those irresponsible voices on the left who have been fomenting this.
The only way the Democrats can recover from their pro riot stance is to host massive fundraisers to raise money to reimburse urban businesses for their losses, while calling for the resignation of the pro riot Democratic mayors.
...not going to happen....
Kind of like Hillary in 2016. She didn’t know what her stance was until she read the polls.
And the horses have left the barn, that's how bad it is for the Democrats.
These people would assassinate their own mothers if it would help democrats win. They, and their politics are total garbage.
Lemon is one retromingent jackass of a “news” host. His politics cannot be separated from his morality, nothing can when it is immoral and consumes you.
