A flyer for a September 4 Black Lives Matter protest in Virginia features the phrase “If it burns, it burns, this is war.“
Prominent Marxist activist Angela Davis has declared that the recent Black Lives Matter riots are “rehearsals for revolution” in the very near future.
Do the Democrats really live in a fantasy world of their own making, or are actually denying the obvious truth?
It’s hard to say which is more disturbing.
