U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet has brazenly, and without making any sense at all, responded to the challenge thrown down by The Federalist on Friday to condemn the political violence in Colorado unleashed during so-called peaceful protests.
The national news organization called out Bennet and U.S. Senate candidate John Hickenlooper for turning a blind eye to “lawless unrest.”
Protests here have resulted in millions of dollars in damages to the capitol building, businesses and private property, hundreds of injuries have been reported and one protestor accidentally shot fellow protestors.
Or as Bennet now describes it, “Disturbing the peace.”
Bennet’s non-condemnation took an astonishing turn beyond the Democrat’ talking points issued to Joe Biden and Portland’s mayor on Sunday, which was simply to blame Trump for the summer of
Instead, Bennet took at least four conflicting positions.
Bennet first denied the violence existed, then defended the violence as necessary before deftly blaming Trump for the now defensible non-violence and concluded by demanding the president condemn the whole mess.
President Trump is concerned with those “disturbing the peace,” with no appreciation of the injustice they are trying to disturb.
Instead of fanning the flames of fear and hate, he should condemn all of the violence and unify our country. https://t.co/vjleQgRSsY

No one will ever be able to accuse Bennet of taking the wrong position on the riots, because he clearly stands for all the positions.
