Remember Chicago 68?

That really hurt the Democrats.
But we barely managed to hang on over the years.

This today will absolutely kill the GOP.

14. I wasn't alive in 68

Based on my reading I thought it was the Chicago police that looked bad rather than the protestors.

22. Two things

Not to the people watching on tv and the report took time to be completed and most people never paid any attention to it when it did. That would’ve required reading.

5. Only if we don't let it get swept under a rug...

...and there are many, many more parties interested in doing that than there were in '68.

Republicans will try to disown the rioters and (eventually) Trump, conservative media will blame antifa and cry "false flag," mainstream media will be anxious to get back to their "both sides are to blame" comfort zone.

And people who were trying to tell them that these nuts were dangerous for the last 20 years will be skipped over yet again in favor of people who had an epiphany five minutes ago.

Do those people look like antifa?

LOL

19. Plenty of video, Plenty of photographs

It’s going to be impossible to deny what the GOP has done to America. If they pull the “Law and Order” card just roll the tape.

16. No it won't. It SHOULD...but I am not holding my breath...

The Democratic Party turned its back on the protesters and ran away from the label Liberal for a LONG time after '68.
By '80, Carter was swamped because of "Reagan Democrats", remember that?

We ate ourselves on the left and that allowed Reagan to happen with ungodly numbers of support - he fucking won CALIFORNIA and NEW YORK and damn near everything else by huge numbers, all while gutting this nation for the next 40 years!!!!

The GOP last lost with Nixon. Since then, they hold the line - even today with sedition and treason on full display.

18. "The whole world is watching!"

This is what was being shouted on the streets of Chicago in 1968.

It was true then. It is VERY true now.
