Law and Order narrative being played out in Portland

Confusion and Chaos = Control

Trump has decided that fear is the only issue that can defeat the negatives of the pandemic.

What is going on in Portland is a political strategy.

Obviously, the "Libs" are unable to control the violence. The country needs a "law and order" President. That is the narrative they wish to create.

We should watch carefully the public reactions in the next few days.

1. Public reaction will probably be about what you'd expect.

 

Cheered on by Trump's base and condemned by everyone else.

This is yet another not very well thought out campaign stunt, one which is just a continuation of Trumps' sinking ship strategy - I just don't get it.

5. If they can stir up the violence...

...I doubt the majority would support violence over "law and order"? At least, that is what they believe, in my opinion.

They want to create a narrative that shows more violence than actually exists and more police control than actually exists. It's the picture they are looking for.

6. According to the Mayor, stirring up violence is exactly what they're doing.

 

And I agree that that is the point, but the country's mood right now doesn't seem to want to suffer fools and I have a feeling that this will be short lived as there has never been a more transparent administration than the one we are all presently suffering under.

8. I think as more people find out about it the backlash will be severe.

 

But, what the heck do I know? Next to nothing.

You're right, we'll have to wait to see which way public opinion moves - one hopes in the right direction.

15. What's old is new again, and maybe a little off topic

A few years ago National Geographic published a story on Vietnam, 50 years after. Good article, and all that, but the next month's edition published a letter to the editor where some yahoo Vietnam veteran expressed displeasure, "We did not go into Vietnam to subjugate the Vietnamese, we went there to protect them from the evils of Communism."

I was gobsmacked, and realized that mindset is the root of a whole shit load of today's problems; subjugators don't get to determine who is, and isn't, being subjugated.

On edit: 'Underpants' tagged a nice homer last night in the SF Giants inter-squad game.
