RUSH: “$1 Billion-Plus Riot Damage is Most Expensive in Insurance History.” I want to read this. This is in Axios. And they’re all excited. They think this is great. The insurance industry is getting soaked. And they love it. They love a gigantic American corporation or industry which they believe rips everybody off, the insurance industry.
So, here now, the insurance industry, after the death of George Floyd and all the riots in all these blue states and cities, and Axios claims they have an exclusive here. “$1 Billion-Plus Riot Damage is Most Expensive in Insurance History.” And listen to how they write this.
“The vandalism and looting following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police will cost the insurance industry more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history. Why it matters,” says Axios. Well… “The protests that took place in 140 U.S. cities this spring were mostly peaceful –”
Mostly peaceful led to the most expensive insurance payouts in history? How does that work? They were “mostly peaceful, but the arson, vandalism and looting that did occur will result in at least $1 billion to $2 billion of paid insurance claims — eclipsing the record set in Los Angeles in 1992,” after the Rodney King imbroglio.
Now, why it matters, folks, is because we, the consumers, are going to end up paying higher premiums for our own insurance, not to mention we’re gonna have to pay higher prices for things because every business and company is gonna have to pay higher insurance premiums themselves. But I’ll guaran-damn-tee you the 20 years old at Axios don’t know anything about insurance except that they’re supposed to hate it. And that they’re on their parents’ health insurance plan, so it’s not even a responsibility that they have. They just love it that some industry is getting soaked.
But how in the world can you claim that riot damage of 1 billion to $2 billion, most expensive in insurance history, is the result of mostly peaceful? Mostly peaceful demonstrators. It’s just such a crock.
RUSH: “Voters Who Live in ‘Riot Zones’ Back Trump 2-1.” Now, what’s a riot zone? Well, what do you think it is? “Democrats and the media who’ve confidently predicted that Donald Trump’s pivot to a law and order campaign wouldn’t work should take notice.”
The issue of law and order hits every American in a personal way, particularly now with the Democrats wanting to get rid of the police. “Trump’s target may be ‘suburban moms’ and ex-urban whites, but his message is resonating with those most directly affected by the issue: those who live or work in ‘riot zones.'”
Think Portland where they had riots every night for a hundred nights in a row. There’s been a lot of talk about the hidden Trump vote. Well, who do you think they are? Many of these law and order voters could very well tell people they’re gonna vote for Biden while intending to vote for Trump. “Rasmussen Reports survey, 63% of voters who have seen violent protests in their community ‘strongly approve’ of the president — just 35% don’t.” And then there’s this, folks. From NPR News: “With violent crime on the rise in Minneapolis, City Council asks: Where are the police?”
These people are just flat-out stupid. The Minneapolis city council president, Lisa Bender, she was all over MSNBC arguing with great praise just a few months ago that calling police when somebody busts into your home comes from a place of privilege, white privilege. She wanted to abolish the police department, start over. She’s young, and she’s white. Now, city council president, now she’s complaining that the police are not arresting enough people and crime is going up. I’m not making this up. I literally am not making this up. This is how dumb and stupid these people are.
A great example of the chickification, by the way, of the culture. But, I mean, for crying out loud. I know you think I’m making it up. I am not. The Minneapolis city council is mad. Where are the cops? They got rid of the cops! They said having the cops able to come to your house is white privilege, it’s unfair. They’re part of the defund the police movement. Now they wonder where they are.
