These videos of democratic cities are a bit eerie.
It seems as if Democrats already know they’re going to lose.
So, they’re bracing for the chaos that will follow after the election.
D.C., Dallas, New York City, Los Angeles are just a few democrats run cities that are bracing for the left to wreak havoc.
We aren’t seeing places being boarded up in Republican-run cities because Trump supporters won’t be the ones who will be burning and looting.
Just look at these cities boarded up it looks like something out of an apocalypse movie:
I never thought I would see so many buildings here in the nation’s capital boarded-up on the eve of a presidential election in anticipation of possible unrest. And it’s not just in DC. It’s happening in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere around the country. So sad! pic.twitter.com/fmPnUBbr8T

One of my supporters sent me this picture today of Buckhead being boarded up …
They're preparing for radical, left-wing Socialist Democrats to commit violence and destruction.

CNN covered the story and contributed these details:
Retailers across the country are stepping up security measures to try to head off any damages to their stores during election-related protests in the coming days.
Tiffany, Saks Fifth Avenue, CVS, Target and Macy’s are among the chains that are boarding up some of their stores’ windows in preparation.
“While we intend to remain open where possible, out of an abundance of caution the windows of select stores in key cities will be boarded in anticipation of potential election related activity,” said Nathan Strauss, spokesperson for Tiffany (TIF).
Stores around the country were damaged this summer, and merchandise was stolen during protests over the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Retailers are hoping to prevent this from happening again.

NPR chipped in with these details:
Plywood window coverings have blanketed high-end shopping areas of big U.S. cities ahead of Tuesday’s election.
It’s an eerie sight in a country built on the idea of a peaceful transition of power. In fact, that kind of signal is exactly why city authorities have generally advised business owners not to board up, promising stepped-up security measures.
Still, plywood panels are dotting major streets in Boston and New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Store owners are on edge from break-ins during the summer, when looters took advantage of a nationwide wave of civil unrest following the police killing of George Floyd.
New York all boarded up. Stay safe everyone, be cautious but please do vote. Needless to say, don't mail out your votes, go and vote pic.twitter.com/G5zATw0fWL
