“Minnesota DFL are attempting to place blame on Republicans today, and we are told it’s for our own health and safety. However, when it comes to rioting, looting, and arson the DFL’s concerns for safety are conspicuously absent.
“The DFL says that in order for businesses to remain open the people of Minnesota must follow the letter of the law, or in this case, executive order. They neglect to mention how crucial it is for a business to not be engulfed in flames or shut down due to damage and looting. Recent data suggests that a business cannot remain open if it has been reduced to ashes.
“It is disingenuous of the Minnesota DFL to suddenly be concerned with the rule of law, only after they see the poll numbers turning against them. The allowance of the new lawlessn society in Minnesota and across country goes all the way to the top of the Democrat party. It’s been reported that 13 members of Joe Biden’s staff paid to get rioters, looters, and arsonists out of jail following the first Minneapolis riot. Democrat Vice Presidential nominee Kamala Harris even tweeted out a financial appeal to help bail out the people who destroyed the neighborhoods of color in Minneapolis. This is a dangerous and potentially deadly way to campaign.
“The Republican Party of Minnesota is calling on the DFL to be as outraged about rioting, looting, and arson as they pretend to be about masks.”
