With a surge of cases in various states, why are the Democrats purposely avoiding the obvious reason?

The reason being the George Floyd protests and riots!!!! Instead, they blame SMALL friendly gatherings. In the words of NJ Governor Phil Murphy, “Over the weekend, a group of 5 knuckleheads were spotted at the Jersey Shore not social distancing and not wearing masks!”

    You're parroting conservative talking points.

    Floyd is only a tiny issue, the main agenda is to prove Trump needs to be replaced.

    Trump cannot control the Democratic Agenda.

    Only Democrats can save the world.

    Because the BLM protests don't seem to have been a major cause of spread. 

    Think about it, the protests occurred in pretty much every part of the country.  There were massive protests, for example, in New York City.  But their infection rates have continued to go down (in fact they just had their first day without a death since mid March).  Instead, the major centers of the outbreak have been in Florida, Texas, and Arizona.  What those places have in common is not BLM protests (although those happened there) but rather that they rushed to reopen after being reluctant to take precautions.  Florida, which just saw the single biggest one day increase in infections in the US, has a Governor who still will not order people to wear masks.  The infections seem to mostly have been traced to businesses and such which opened up, particularly bars, restaurants, and clubs. 

    It seems that two factors kept infections down among the protests, despite the large numbers of attendees.  First, they occurred outside and the virus has a harder time spreading outdoors.  Second, while masks were not universally worn during the protests, they were widespread, and we know that masks can dramatically slow the spread of the virus.

    Because they encouraged the BLM protests and don't want to be blamed for the second wave of COVID-19. Of course, their intent behind encouraging protests was to create a second wave. They know they can't win without tanking the economy and keeping this pandemic alive.
