I have spent the past week shocked watching our liberal media and politicians condone, support, egg on, entice, and incite race riots.
Mainstream media and liberal politicians have done everything they could to soften the optics of the disgusting destruction of thousands of businesses across the U.S., businesses which these same leftist leaders have bled dry in the months leading up to the vandalism through coronavirus closures. These leaders continuously speak support for the protesters, some even for Antifa, and strategically couple it with a gentle admonition of the rioters who coattail the protesters and cause unprecedented mayhem. Nikole Hannah-Jones, who wrote the leftist race war theology known as the 1619 Project, which is being taught in over 3,500 public schools, has actually expressed support for the looting and property destruction, terming it “protest” and “not violence,” while simultaneously encouraging it as an “uprising.”
On Tuesday, Governor Northam stated that George Floyd was one of the “people being killed for the color of their skin.” But wait. While a unified majority of Americans agree that Floyd should never have been handled as he was, what do the police officers’ callousness and recklessness have to do with Floyd “being killed for the color of [his] skin”? There is absolutely no evidence of racism or hate in the Floyd case, just political conspiracy theories of racism. But these politically-driven theories of “white supremacy” and racism are fueling the fires that are burning our American cities. All the while, statistics show that black men are less likely than white men to die from police contact. In fact, “a police officer is 18½ times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer,” writes Heather Mac Donald in the Wall Street Journal. more
