Willie Brown warns “burning and looting in the name of justice will hand election to Trump”

In a new Op-Ed for the SF Chronicle, former mayor Willie Brown warns Democrats that continued rioting and destruction could hand Trump the election and hurt Democrats in elections nationally as well.

Brown explains the quagmire Democrats are in:

“If they stand up and condemn the “demonstrators,” the left wing will label them as Trump flunkies and they’ll be in all sorts of trouble.

If they keep quiet or offer passive responses, voters will assume they’re OK with burning and looting.”

Brown then suggests Democrats stop acknowledging “demonstrations” that take place at night as legitimate.

Brown argues that MLK did not cross the Selma bridge “under the cover of darkness.”

He suggests legitimate demonstrations end “when the sun goes down” and after that “it’s trouble for trouble’s sake.”
