Here it comes. Co-opt with the left-hand, repress with the right-hand. In the future, look for the “far-left” to be increasingly labeled as “far-right” (they already do this in some instances).

People who commit arson should be prosecuted but peaceful protesters should be left alone, presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said on Tuesday.
Biden, 77, speaking during a rare press conference, came out against criminal acts but accused President Donald Trump of handling the recent riots in cities like Portland the wrong way.
“I said from the outset of the recent protests that there’s no place for violence or destruction of property. Peaceful protesters should be protected and arsonists and anarchists should be prosecuted. And local law enforcement can do that,” Biden said.
“The fact is that arsonists should be accountable. People carrying guns shooting should be held accountable. People who engage in criminal activity should and must be held accountable and taken to trial,” he added later.
The Obama administration was able to protect federal property without turning the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) into a “private militia,” the former vice president claimed.
