TOP 10 SCARY JAPANESE URBAN LEGENDS

10. Teke-Teke


This is the Urban Legend about a girl who fell under a train and was cut in half. She became a vengeful spirit that moves using her hands and elbows, dragging herself while making the sound -Tek-Tek- … if you hear that noise, youre supposed to run. Those who are caught by the Tek Tek will recieve a fate like her - shes said to slash her victims in half so that they look like her, and possibly become wandering vengeful spirits as she is.

9. Slit Mouthed Woman


You may recognise this one from a number of Japanese movies and TV shows. The traditional name for this being is Kuchi-sake-onna and dates back over 300 years ago. She is a woman who was brutally mutilated by her husband after he found she was having an affair with another Samurai. This left her in death as a restless spirit. She is said to cover her mouth with a cloth mask, a fan or a scarf. If you approach her, shell ask you if you think shes pretty. If you answer yes, she will remove the mask and when the victim screams they will be slashed from ear to ear until they look like her. Even if you say no, shes said to follow you home and brutally murder you that night.

8. Daruma-san


This urban legend is more of an old game passed down through the years. You shower in a bath, turn off the lights and chant -Daruma-san fell down- while you wash your hair … its said that you will see a woman in your mind. She is Daruma-San. Shell be standing up in a bath. Youll see her slip and fall onto an old rusty tap. It goes straight through her eye and kills her. Then, you will feel her ghostly presence behind you. If you turn around - there she is. Black tangled hair, rotting clothes, one eye is bloodshot and the other is just a bloody, hollow eye socket. The game continues even further than that if you dare, but I think thats enough for you to understand this creepy urban legend.

7. Girl From The Gap


This Japanese story comes from peoples natural fear of what lies lurking in the cracks of a home. Do you ever see something move past the hinge of a door? Is that someone looking out from inside your wardrobe? Have you ever pictured a hand reaching out from between your bed and the floor? Well it could be the girl from the gap - a spirit that lives both physically and metaphorically -between worlds-. Its said that if you ever see her, she will ask if you want to play hide and seek. At that point the game is on. When you her between a gap again, shell drag you to an other worldly hell.

6. The Red Room


This is a very modern Japanese urban legend about a pop up ad thats red with black test. In a childs voice, it simply repeats the phrase -Do you like?-. A boy who got the popup tried to close it but it kept reappearing. Then, it changed to -Do you like red?- … he keeps trying to close it but it grows large and changes again to say -Do you like the red room?- … then, the site changes. All red and black. It has a list of names on it - his friends is at the bottom. And hand reaches out towards the boys neck from a video. tHE Ending gets even more twisted but guess what, its based on a real website. Its still out there. If you can find it, youll know the gruesome legend of the red room and if the horrible ending comes true for you.

5. The Human Pillars


This legend dates back to ancient times in Japan where its known as Hito-bashira. Back then, there was a belief that a human sacrifice sealed inside a structure would make a foundation more stable. This means that many old Japanese buildings are said to contain the spirits of the people who were sacrificed during their construction. One famous example is Matsue Castle where a woman was sealed inside the foundations during its construction. Now her spirit is said to haunt the castle and whenever a woman dances there, the castle shakes violently. Many building owners in Japan are open about their building being a Human Pillar.

4. The Snake Woman


This one comes from the old Japanese folklore pf Nure-onna which translates to wet woman. She is often described as having the head of a woman and the body of a snake - with long claws, snake eyes and jet black hair.  She carries with her a childlike bundle to lure in her victims. If a person tries to pick up the baby, they find its not a child at all. The bundle then becomes very heavy and stops the victim from fleeing. The snake woman then uses her long tongue to suck all of the blood from the victims body until they die.

3. Onibaba


She is a demon women that often appears in Japanese folk folklore. She will often appear as an old woman asking for help but if you get to close, she will slice you open with a knife and eat you. She is said to be the tormented spirit of a woman who accidently killed her pregnant daughter and unborn grandchild in an effort to find a cure for her friends child being sick. She was told to bring them the liver of an unborn child but when she finally killed her victims, she found they were her own family.

2. The Dream School


This one is extra creepy because apparently if you don't forget it within a week - it will happen to you. Lets see if this is true. One night, a boy had a dream about a school. The hallways looped forever, bringing him back to the start. Staircases led back to the first floor. As he got scared, he heard footsteps behind him. He ran until he found an emergency exit with a glass box and a key next to it. The glass had been smashed and there was a note saying it could be found in room 108. When he found that room, it was empty - no students - but there were backpacks hanging off every chair. There was a pounding on the door. He opened it, terrified, to find the hallways covered with dead children. Its said that he never woke up from his dream and if you don't forget the story in one week, youll meet the same fate. Don't worry though guys

1. Onryo


This is a traditional Japanese ghost belief about a vengeful spirt that can and will physically hurt the living. Its a very scary concept if youre only familiar with the western idea of ghosts which don't really take solid forms and so cant hurt humans with physical contact. Thats not true for an Onryo. They are vengeful and full of hate, stopping at nothing to enact the suffering they received when they were alive. For any of you guys who have seen The Grudge, this spirit is the influence for that creepy girl in that movie.

The Coronavirus Explained & What You Should Do
In December 2019 the Chinese authorities notified the world that a virus was spreading through their communities. In the following months, it spread to other countries, with cases doubling within days. This virus is the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome-Related Coronavirus 2 that causes the disease called Covid-19 and that everyone simply calls coronavirus. What actually happens when it infects a human and what should we all do?

A virus is really just a hull around genetic material and a few proteins, arguably not even a living thing. It can only make more of itself by entering a living cell. Corona may spread via surfaces, but it's still uncertain how long it can survive on them. Its main way of spreading seems to be droplet infection when people cough, or if you touch someone who's ill and then your face, say rubbing your eyes or nose. The virus starts its journey here, and then hitches a ride as a stowaway deeper into the body Its destinations are the intestines, the spleen or the lungs, where it can have the most dramatic effect.

Even just a few corona viruses can cause quite a dramatic situation. The lungs are lined with billions of epithelial cells. These are the border cells of your body, lining your organs and mucosa waiting to be infected. Corona connects to a specific receptor on its victim's membranes to inject its genetic material. The cell, ignorant of what's happening, executes the new instructions, which are pretty simple: copy and reassemble. It fills up with more and more copies of the original virus until it reaches a critical point and receives one final order, self-destruct.

The cell sort of melts away, releasing new corona particles ready to attack more cells. The number of infected cells grows exponentially After about 10 days, millions of body cells are infected, and billions of viruses swarmed the lungs. The virus has not caused too much damage yet, but corona is now going to release a real beast on you, your own immune system. The immune system, while there to protect you, can actually be pretty dangerous to yourself and needs tight regulation.

And as immune cells pour into the lungs to fight the virus, Corona infects some of them and creates confusion. Cells have neither ears nor eyes. They communicate mostly via tiny information proteins called cytokines. Nearly every important immune reaction is controlled by them. Corona causes infected immune cells to overreact and yell bloody murder. In a sense, it puts the immune system into a fighting frenzy and sends way more soldiers than it should, wasting its resources and causing damage.

Two kinds of cells in particular wreak havoc. First, neutrophils, which are great at killing stuff, including our cells. As they arrive in their thousands, they start pumping out enzymes that destroy as many friends as enemies. The other important type of cells that go into a frenzy are killer T-cells, which usually order infected cells to commit controlled suicide. Confused as they are, they start ordering healthy cells to kill themselves too. The more and more immune cells arrive, the more damage they do, and the more healthy lung tissue they kill.

This might get so bad that it can cause permanent irreversible damage, that leads to lifelong disabilities. In most cases, the immune system slowly regains control. It kills the infected cells, intercepts the viruses trying to infect new ones and cleans up the battlefield. Recovery begins. The majority of people infected by Corona will get through it with relatively mild symptoms. But many cases become severe or even critical.

We don't know the percentage because not all cases have been identified, but it's safe to say that there is a lot more than with the flu. In more severe cases, Millions of epithelial cells have died and with them, the lungs' protective lining is gone. That means that the alveoli - tiny air sacs via which breathing occurs - can be infected by bacteria that aren't usually a big problem. Patients get pneumonia. Respiration becomes hard or even fails, and patients need ventilators to survive. The immune system has fought at full capacity for weeks and made millions of antiviral weapons.

And as thousands of bacteria rapidly multiply, it is overwhelmed. They enter the blood and overrun the body; if this happens, death is very likely. The Corona virus is often compared to the flu, but actually, it's much more dangerous. While the exact death rate is hard to pin down during an ongoing pandemic, we know for sure that it's much more contagious and spreads faster than the flu.

There are two futures for a pandemic like Corona: fast and slow. Which future we will see depends on how we all react to it in the early days of the outbreak. A fast pandemic will be horrible and cost many lives; a slow pandemic will not be remembered by the history books. The worst case scenario for a fast pandemic begins with a very rapid rate of infection because there are no counter measures in place to slow it down.

Why is this so bad?
In a fast pandemic, many people get sick at the same time. If the numbers get too large, health care systems become unable to handle it. There aren't enough resources, like medical staff or equipment like ventilators, left to help everybody. People will die untreated. And as more health care workers get sick themselves, the capacity of health care systems falls even further. If this becomes the case, then horrible decisions will have to be made about who gets to live and who doesn't. The number of deaths rises significantly in such a scenario. To avoid this, the world - that means all of us - needs to do what it can to turn this into a slow pandemic.

A pandemic is slowed down by the right responses. Especially in the early phase, so that everyone who gets sick can get treatment and there's no crunch point with overwhelmed hospitals. Since we don't have a vaccine for Corona, we have to socially engineer our behaviour, to act like a social vaccine. This simply means two things:
1. Not getting infected.
2. Not infecting others.

Although it sounds trivial, the very best thing you can do is to wash your hands. The soap is actually a powerful tool. The corona virus is encased in what is basically a layer of fat; soap breaks that fat apart and leaves it unable to infect you. It also makes your hands slippery, and with the mechanical motions of washing, viruses are ripped away.

To do it properly, wash your hands as if you've just cut up some jalape?os and want to put in your contact lenses next. The next thing is social distancing, which is not a nice experience, but a nice thing to do. This means: no hugging, no handshakes. If you can stay at home, stay at home to protect those who need to be out for society to function: from doctors to cashiers, or police officers;. You depend on all of them; they all depend on you to not get sick. On a larger level, there are quarantines, which can mean different things, from travel restrictions or actual orders to stay at home. Quarantines are not great to experience and certainly not popular. But they buy us - and specially the researchers working on medication and vaccinations - crucial time.

So if you are put under quarantine, you should understand why, and respect it. None of this is fun. But looking at the big picture, it is a really small price to pay. The question of how pandemics end, depends on how they start; if they start fast with a steep slope, they end badly. If they start slow, with a not-so-steep slope, they end okay-ish. And, in this day and age, it really is in all of our hands. Literally, and figuratively. A huge thanks to the experts who helped us on short notice with this, specially Our World In Data, the online publication for research and data on the world's largest problems and how to make progress solving them. Check out their site. It also includes a constantly updated page on the Corona pandemic.

Scientists hunt for a Covid-19 treatment
With a Covid-19 vaccine unlikely for at least a year, scientists around the world are conducting some 300 clinical trials into existing or experimental treatments that might help patients infected with the coronavirus. Analysts said last week that they saw “a ray of hope” in early results from a small study into remdesivir, an antiviral that California-based Gilead Sciences developed to battle Ebola. Doctors observed improvement in 36 of 53 patients with severe Covid-19 cases who received the drug. Other teams of researchers are studying immune system–boosting antibody treatments, including transfusions of blood plasma from recovered patients (see Health & Science).

Remdesivir has proved effective against other deadly coronaviruses in animal studies, said Hal Dardick in the Chicago Tribune. It’s thought to work by inhibiting a virus’s ability to replicate in high numbers, and in humans might prevent Covid-19 from overwhelming and devastating the lungs. But tests have a long way to go, and some scientists believe the drug might “be more effective on patients whose disease is less serious.”

President Trump has repeatedly pushed chloroquine as a panacea, said Michael Hiltzik in the Los Angeles Times, but the latest data on the anti-malarial drug “haven’t been encouraging.” Some hospitals that were using chloroquine as a routine first-line treatment have dropped it, because of a lack of proof that it has any positive effect “and growing evidence of harm.” Indeed, one Brazilian study into chloroquine and Covid-19 was ended “when several patients subjected to high doses of the drug began to show heart irregularities.”

It’s possible we may never find “a miracle drug,” said Spencer Bokat-Lindell in The New York Times. Of the 200 or so viruses that are “known to infect humans, only about 10 have approved treatments.” Our best near-term hope might be antibody treatments, which give our bodies a fighting chance. A number of biotech companies are now developing monoclonal antibodies—some derived from genetically engineered mice—that could enter trials this summer. “If everything goes perfectly, they might be ready for limited use in the fall.”

“We shared one toilet with 50 families”
Kenya’s slums are mobilising to protect themselves from the coronavirus, says Kennedy Odede. I grew up in Kibera, the biggest slum in Nairobi, so I know first-hand how easy it is for illness to spread there. I shared, with my parents and seven siblings, a tiny shanty made of “iron-sheet walls patched with cardboard to cover the holes”, with a strung-up sheet separating the bedroom area from the kitchen area. There was “no concept of ‘personal space’ or ‘alone time’”, because we could hear our neighbours a foot away in the next shack, and we shared one toilet with 50 families. That’s why, aged 15, I founded Shining Hope for Communities (Shofco), an anti-poverty group that now works in 11 informal settlements. Its members have set up hand-washing stations at every slum entry point, and we’re going door-to-door distributing bleach, hand sanitiser and homemade soap. Shofco is now checking people’s temperatures, referring potential cases to the authorities and helping to quash false rumours. But we shouldn’t have to do this all on our own. “We need to feel the presence of the government, and the private sector, on the ground, working with us to combat this crisis.” If we can’t keep the disease from decimating our poor, Kenya’s health crisis will turn into class warfare.

Free exchange A little less conversation
Can central bankers talk too much?

Imagine you are a journalist trying to reassure your bosses that you will hit a tight deadline. What would be more effective: a forceful but brief commitment that you will do whatever is needed to get the job done, which leaves them in the dark on all the things that might go wrong along the way? Or a plan detailing every step you will take—but in which they can spot unnerving risks? That resembles the choice central banks face as they try to convince financial markets and the public that they will meet their goals. Over the past decade their preference has been clear: the more transparency and detail, the better. In 2011 America’s Federal Reserve began holding press conferences after its monetary-policy meetings. It started publishing the range of rate-setters’ economic forecasts the following year. Across the rich world, forward guidance on the path of interest rates has become part of the toolkit. Central bankers make ever more speeches, bringing once-hidden debates out into the open. Some tweet their views.

The theoretical justification for all the talk is strong. The more markets understand how the central bank will react to events, the better they anticipate future policy. Conditions in financial markets should immediately tighten or loosen in response to economic news, making central bankers’ jobs easier. It is as if setting out your plan to your boss makes it easier to implement. Today, however, the theory is being tested. The European Central Bank (ecb) meets on October 24th, after The Economist goes to press, amid a very public row about monetary policy. In September the ecb said that it would restart quantitative easing (qe), the purchase of bonds with newly created money, and that it would keep buying assets until inflation picks up from its current level of 1% towards the bank’s aim of close to 2%. Hawks such as Klaas Knot, the head of the Dutch central bank, have been unusually vocal in their dissent. Bond yields, which move inversely to prices, first fell as markets digested the ecb’s guidance. But the bickering has since sent them in the other direction. Market pricing now also reflects expectations of how the political struggle over open-ended qe will play out. Investors have spotted a flaw in the plan.

In America the Federal Reserve may cut interest rates for a third time this year on October 30th. It has been accused by economists at Goldman Sachs, a bank, of constructing a “hall of mirrors” in its communications with markets. The Fed, the argument goes, has this year simultaneously signalled its intentions to bond markets while taking its cues from them. But bond yields are a prediction of what the Fed will do, not an instruction. As a result, the Fed and the markets have entered a pessimistic spiral, while the real economy has been ignored. In its eagerness to be in touch with markets, the Fed has forgotten that it is in the lead.

Central banks everywhere must also work out how to offer forward guidance when facing sharply divergent forks in the road. A trade truce between America and China could transform the economic outlook. A no-deal Brexit could cause chaos in Britain that spills over to the rest of Europe. Telling markets what to expect of policy is much harder when prediction involves choosing between black and white.

Might it help, therefore, for central banks to talk a little less? Microeconomists have long known that ambiguity can have strategic uses. Employment contracts, for example, do not specify every action an employee must take, nor all the obligations of an employer, possibly because it may be better to leave room for either side to punish the other’s bad behaviour. In recent years Bengt Holmström of mit, who in 2016 won the Nobel prize for economics, has argued that central-bank opacity has its uses in credit markets. Most of the time, he argues, these markets, unlike stockmarkets, are “information-insensitive”—they do not respond much to news.

In contrast to stocks, there is no upside for the lender when things go especially well, and default is a remote risk, especially when loans are adequately collateralised. “A state of ‘no questions asked’ is the hallmark of money-market liquidity,” he argues. In a panic, however, money-markets dry up as the risks loom larger. Lenders find themselves having to scrutinise every transaction. Restoring stability might require a promise that is light on detail, and thus hard to pick apart. At the worst of the euro zone’s sovereign-debt crisis, for instance, Mario Draghi, the head of the ecb, pledged to do “whatever it takes” to keep the single currency safe. Mr Holmström also notes that when the Fed provided emergency lending to banks during the financial crisis, it did not disclose which institutions received support, for fear that any associated stigma could provoke bank runs.

Too much information
Might a similar logic carry across to central bankers’ everyday goals, such as targeting inflation? Inflation expectations, like financial panics, can prove self-fulfilling. Some economists reckon that central banks’ promises to keep inflation low may have become so credible that the public rarely revises its expectations in light of economic news—another case of “no questions asked”. But the analogy breaks down when it comes to interest rates. Rates vary and markets have to expect something. Central banks might as well steer such expectations. The limits of communication are best seen as the latest round in the decades-old battle between those who want monetary policy to be set by rules, and those favouring discretion. The clearest forward guidance would be a fully transparent algorithm that relates interest rates to economic data. But such a mechanical “reaction function” exists only in economic models. In reality, policymakers have to use their judgment, meaning their decisions are inherently uncertain. As long as that is true, there is a limit to how much more transparency can make interest rates predictable. And, as the recent experience of central banks shows, talking can have its downsides. It is worth pondering when silence might be golden.

China threatens to kill the golden goose

A last-minute intervention by Beijing made the battle over the future of TikTok’s social network even more complicated, said Zheping Huang and Colum Murphy in Bloomberg.com. Last month, Trump threatened to ban the Chinese-owned network, immensely popular with youth around the world, over concerns it could share data with China’s government. Software giants Microsoft—allied with Walmart—and Oracle issued competing bids for Tik-Tok’s U.S. operations. But China “threw a wrench” into the plans this week. Much as the U.S. has used export rules to limit how U.S. companies work with China, China has put the “personalized recommendation” algorithms that TikTok is built on in a list of 23 products now requiring approval before being sold overseas. China is trying to “prevent what state-run media called the ‘theft’ of technology.” Zhang Yiming, founder of TikTok parent ByteDance, may still pursue a deal, but China’s regulators could also hold up an agreement until after the U.S. elections in November.

Walmart’s entry into the TikTok sweepstakes last week highlighted the app’s wide- ranging appeal, said Raymond Zhong in The New York Times. The huge retailer’s team-up with Microsoft raised some eyebrows. But you can look to China to see why this makes sense. “Chinese e-commerce platforms have been adding livestreaming to their apps for years, and video apps have been adding shopping functions.” That could be a model for Walmart. Merchandise sold via livestreaming in China is expected to reach $140 billion this year.

To make that work, though, any U.S. buyer would need TikTok’s secret sauce, said Tim Culpan in Bloomberg.com, and it’s not clear China will ever let that happen. “Imagine a bidder for KFC being told the deal might not include the Colonel’s 11 secret herbs and spices.” That’s effectively what China just told TikTok’s pursuers. While data is what put TikTok in this mess, “it’s really the algorithms that matter most to the company” and keep users glued to their phones. Beijing is “threatening to kill TikTok to save it,” said Pete Sweeney in BreakingViews .com. Trump’s strong-arming has understandably “played poorly in the People’s Republic.” Americans would react the same way if China’s president demanded that “Apple sell its Chinese unit—and its source code—to a Chinese buyer or be kicked out of the country.” Rather than allow Washington to set that kind of precedent, China may put TikTok out of its misery.

TikTok is already declining in value, said Dan Gallagher in The Wall Street Journal. In May, it hired Kevin Mayer, once considered the heir apparent to Bob Iger at Disney, as its new CEO. But all the turmoil and the prospect of a sale led Mayer to quit last week rather than “become middle management” again at another tech giant. There’s another reason I’m not confident TikTok will survive this turmoil, said Casey Newton in TheVerge .com. It “was able to fend off fierce competition from Facebook and Snapchat” thanks to a “remarkably adept and focused ByteDance team” in a hypercompetitive environment. Microsoft, Walmart, and Oracle can’t replicate that culture.

The California way of killing business

For a sneak peek at a Biden presidency, just head to California, said Andy Kessler. Democrats have controlled the state assembly since 1997 and the governorship since 2011. As a result, “we’re No. 1 in the top marginal income tax rate at 13.3 percent” and No. 1 in state sales tax. This month, Californians “have been subjected to rolling blackouts because of the state’s renewable energy mandates,” since solar cells become worthless when the sun goes down every evening. The state then has to buy energy on the market, at exorbitant cost. We’re No. 3 in water prices, hurting the farmers who grow “90 percent of America’s broccoli, 95 percent of its garlic, and twothirds of fruits and nuts.” Now ask why your prices are going up. Then there’s Assembly Bill 5, the law the state passed to smother the gig economy. “What do the 300,000 Uber drivers and 200,000 Lyft drivers actually want, as opposed to what California says they want?” Doesn’t matter. The U.S. House of Representatives is already threatening to take some of these policies national, so “this craziness could be yours too.” Before remote work made it possible to live anywhere, this state was “blessed with tax dollars” from employees of Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Palantir—oops. Check that. Palantir is moving to Colorado. “Can’t say I blame them.”

Violence roils the presidential campaigns

President Trump visited Kenosha, Wis., this week to press the law-and-order message that’s become his chief re-election theme, in the wake of a police shooting of a black man there and the ensuing fatal shooting of two protesters, allegedly by a 17-year-old Trump supporter. Trump met with law enforcement officials in the small lakeside city and toured buildings torched by rioters. The violence erupted after police responding to a call for help shot 29-year-old Jacob Blake seven times in the back as he tried to enter his car, severing his spine and leaving him paralyzed.

Trump, who did not meet with Blake’s family, blamed the violence on “far-left politicians” who “push the destructive message that our nation and our law enforcement are oppressive or racist.” Trump also defended Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old charged with killing two protesters and injuring a third last week with a military-style rifle. Rittenhouse, who’s been charged with homicide, illegal weapons possession, and four other crimes, drove in from Illinois to join groups of vigilantes patrolling Kenosha’s streets to defend the city from protesters. A video seems to show him shooting and killing a protester who threw a bag at him, and then being chased, falling, and shooting two other protesters trying to take his gun away. He has claimed self-defense. Trump said that Rittenhouse had been “violently attacked,” and “probably would have been killed.”

In Portland, Ore., a caravan that included members of the far-right group Patriot Prayer drove through downtown Saturday, firing paintballs and pepper spray at police-brutality protesters who’ve staged demonstrations around the federal courthouse for months. A 39-year-old supporter of Patriot Prayer was fatally shot by an unknown assailant during a confrontation on the street. In a tweet, Trump called the caravan members “GREAT PATRIOTS” defending Portland against “Disgraceful Anarchists.”

In a speech, Democratic nominee Joe Biden fired back at Trump, blaming him for stoking division and “recklessly encouraging violence.” Biden said he “unequivocally” condemned the “lawlessness” in Kenosha and other cities, called for looters to be prosecuted, and challenged Trump’s claims that disorder  would grow if he were elected. “I’d be looking to lower the temperature in this country, not raise it,” said Biden, who planned to visit Kenosha on Thursday, after The Week went to press. “Does anyone believe there will be less violence in America if Donald Trump is re-elected?”

The Portland victim’s blood is on Demo crats’ hands, said The Wall Street Jour nal. His shooting “is what happens when political leaders fail to perform the most basic responsibility of government to protect innocent lives and property property.”

Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler and Oregon Gov. Kate Brown have “hamstrung” law enforcement while indulging rioters who’ve attacked police and burned buildings. Now Democrats are trying to “make alleged vigilantism the story rather than the failure of progressive Democratic governance.”

“Trump’s exploitation of Kenosha’s pain is the foulest act of his presidency,” said the Madison, Wis., Capital Times. One man has been paralyzed, two others are dead, and “a city has been shaken to its very core.” And the nation’s president “came to Wisconsin not to promote unity” but “to fan the flames” and praise armed vigilantes as patriots.

Democrats have finally woken up to “the disorder in American cities,” said Rich Lowry in the New York Post. Until now they’ve been content to perpetuate a “narrative of courageous young people rising up against systemic racism.” Now that they fear the violence and chaos will hurt Biden, they’re acknowledging it’s wrong—but they’re blaming Trump. Sorry, but looting and fires have mostly occurred in cities run by Democrats. “If they can’t maintain basic order, it’s on them.”

In case you’ve forgotten, Trump, not Biden, is president, said Max Boot in The Washington Post. Biden has never supported “violence of any sort,” and this week forcefully condemned people who exploit legitimate protests to loot and set fire to buildings. Trump, on the other hand, has “encouraged police brutality” and refuses to condemn “right-wing terrorists” like Rittenhouse. He wants to foment violence for reasons aide Kellyanne Conway explained to Fox News: “The more chaos and anarchy and vandalism and violence reigns, the better it is for the very clear choice on who’s best on public safety and law and order.”

Democrats do have a problem, said Robert Tracinski in TheBulwark .com. Polls show “public opinion is turning against the Black Lives Matter protests.” Democratic leaders haven’t pushed back against “the anarchist and revolutionary wing of the protest movement” that has hijacked the protests to set fires and loot stores. “This is precisely the sort of thing that could tip the election back to Trump.”

“This is a profoundly dangerous moment,” said Jack Holmes in Esquire.com. How did we land here, with “armed militias in military cosplay patrolling the streets?” Start with state legislatures that passed open-carry laws. Now we have hundreds of militia men supporting the president by carrying military-grade weapons on city streets. It’s “the culmination of a longbuilding national psychosis.”
