In addition to the deaths during the recent riots led by the Black Lives Matters (BLM) movement, insurance claims could exceed $2 billion.
Vandalism, looting, and arson were the main causes of the worst losses in the country’s history, revealed a report published by Axios on Sept. 16, according to reports from insurance companies.
“It’s not just happening in one city or state, It’s all over the country, and it’s still happening, so the losses could be significantly more,” Loretta L. Worters of the Insurance Information Institute (Triple-I) told Axios.
The riots, which began on May 25 with the death of African American George Floyd in police custody, disrupted 140 cities with violence that was not reported by most of the media.
For months, Democrats refused to condemn the destruction, and only last month did Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden alluded to it.
Democratic candidate for vice president, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), not only praised the riots but assured that they would continue even after the presidential elections of Nov. 3.
In addition, as another contribution to the leaders of the riots, members of the Democratic campaign made large financial contributions to pay the bails of those who were arrested for their violent anarchic acts.
This behavior by the Democrats drew immediate criticism among the population, as expressed by John Geraghty, a tractor factory worker in Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“The Democratic agenda for me right now is that America is systematically racist and evil and the only people who can fix it are the Democrats,” Geraghty said, according to The New York Times.
Referring to the election, he said, “I’m not 100 percent sure of anything yet, but right now I’m not happy with the way the Democrats are handling any of this.”
At the Republican National Convention President Donald Trump alluded to the Democrats’ tactics in supporting the leftist movements that also call for defunding the police.
“Make no mistake, If you give power to Joe Biden, the radical left will defund police departments all across American. They will pass federal legislation to reduce law enforcement nationwide. … No one will be safe in Biden’s America,” President Trump said, according to Reuters.
