Public opinion, however, will mostly abandon the looters. The fellow travelers on the American left will lose confidence in Democrats and will seethe.
If Donald Trump remains President, they’ll seethe.
No matter the future, the Angry left will remain angry and become even more radicalized. Pushing the country to the brink of civil war. Those of us in rural America will count our blessings. For us, it won’t be much more than a TV show.
