Americans have been endlessly hectored about mask wearing, social distancing, and outdoor gatherings. Yet politicians and journalists support citizens who smash and burn some of America’s poorest neighborhoods.
We consistently have been warned that Minneapolis is a city “on edge” because of the ongoing trial of Derek Chauvin. If the police officer under whose knee George Floyd died last May is found innocent, or even not guilty enough, “a carnival of street violence is anticipated,” writes Freddy Gray in Spectator.US.
The National Guard has been on stand-by in Minneapolis for just such an eventuality; now they’ve been deployed early to help quell the chaos and the looting in the name of Daunte Wright.
Vice President Kamala Harris (one heartbeat from the presidency) is keen to place herself to the edgier left of Joe Biden’s “no justification for violence.” VP Harris wants to be the BLM ying to Biden’s Democratic mainstream yang, continues Mr. Gray.
“Prayers are not enough,” (Harris) tweeted, imitating the already imitative language of phony, corporate-sponsored radicalism. “Daunte Wright should still be with us. While an investigation is underway, our nation needs justice and healing, and Daunte’s family need to know why their child is dead — they deserve answers.”
Last year, violent rioting wasn’t just an understandable reaction to police brutality; it was in part a justified response to a racist president. That’s why in June, Harris tweeted links to bail funds to help those “protesting on the ground in Minnesota” — and only right-wing news sites considered that morally questionable on her part.
Now she’s one heartbeat from the presidency.
