Rhetoric is wearing thin
The five-week temper tantrum we’ve seen since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis is starting to wear thin all over the country, but maybe more in communities of color, where most of the damage is being done through burning, looting and mayhem. One need only look at the aftermaths of various cities, including parts of New York City, to realize this has little to do the life of one man. This is an insurrection.
Black Lives Matters is a pro-Marxist organization. That is not this publication saying that, a foundress of the organization, Patrisse Bullors described herself and fellow co-foundress Alicia Garza as “trained Marxists.” What other proof do we need?
Floyd’s death was the proximate cause of the most recent in a series of BLM outbursts, and shows a coordinated, well-funded operation, that hires mercenaries to stir up trouble. Much of their funding comes through two sources, globalist George Soros, who is hoping to bring down the United States so he can help bring about a one-world government, and multi-national corporations, who are being shaken down by BLM in much the same way the Rainbow Coalition did in the 1990s, and Al Sharpton in the early 2000s.
That this has gone on this long is a manifestation of the mainstream media’s hope this will bring down the “Orange Man” Donald Trump. CNN has called the “demonstrations” mostly peaceful, even has mayhem envelopes their on-site reporters. Meanwhile, somehow, some way they try to blame Trump. But more than the media, which is only doing what we all expect, our feckless leaders are allowing anarchy.
Whether it is allowing statues of Christopher Columbus in New Haven to be removed, or asking police to kneel in solidarity, spineless leaders are hoping in their best Neville Chamberlain impersonation to appease the crowd. They will not be appeased. Capitulation only whets their appetite for more.
Black Lives Matters and those who rain terror on cities are bullies, pure and simple. They only understand their use of force to get their way. But like most bullies, once confronted with force, they run and hide. Exhibit the crying leader of CHOP in Seattle as he was carted away to a secure facility.
As we said, we believe the scales are beginning to come off the eyes of communities of color regarding BLM and the mostly white, liberal post-adolescent adolescents that fill their ranks. In Minneapolis neighborhoods have had enough and are calling out BLM. So are members of the entertainment industry. Sure, some in Hollywood and elsewhere are advocating, but we see a split among them. Those who were held captive in the CHOP zone in Seattle are relating horror stories of daily life. Meanwhile, people are beginning to question “defund the police” efforts. They are told the money will be put in other programs to help disadvantaged youth. They are beginning to ask the salient question: We already do that, will more money fix the problem? Those who have watched the anti-poverty movement from its inception in the 1960s already know the answer.
People are beginning to get angry. They see this is not about equal justice or equal rights. It’s about insurrection. A perfect example of the lack of intellect, let alone consistency is the statue toppling. A statue of Frederick Douglass, no white supremacist he, was desecrated in Rochester, NY. Our guess is most of the mob had no clue as to who he was, or what he stood for — insurrectionists rarely do.
Perhaps the best description of the mobs was done in a piece in Redstate.com:
“These mobs are not progressive. These mobs are not enlightened. These mobs are not edgy, they’re not hip. They’re frauds. They’re dimwitted, phony drama addicts.”
