Right now. Over me.
The Beatles’ song title would be apt at George Floyd memorial services. George Floyd’s family says that coming together would be what he would have wanted.
Only a vanishingly small minority of humans would not condemn the manner of George Floyd’s killing as disturbing and depraved. You’d think we could all act as if we agree on that.
But, even that ‘coming together’ is specifically verboten by the Twitter Hongweibing, Antifa pyromaniacs, and BLM looters – who are abetted by Progressive NPCs who parrot the riot-inducing idea that every white person is possessed by an evil character irredeemably dictated by the color of their skin.
In order to enforce a guilty silence, and to normalize the actual violence they might later commit, Progressives tell you that speech they identify as violent is violence.
They insist on collective guilt by epidermal association for similar reasons; to force others to seek absolution of inherited sin by, for example, the washing of BLM feet; to encourage willingness to abase yourself because of race at the demand of strangers; and to nod your head at excuses for organized looting and arson, as well as violence and murder. Including of black owned stores and against black bodies.
The amazing part is that there isn’t more police misconduct. The duty of police is to protect the state, not you. When the state protects the bad cops, the deaths of George Floyd and Justine Damond result.
It’s only a surprise to the Progressive politicians in the nation’s largest cities, who’ve been receiving campaign contributions in exchange for union contracts which protect bad cops for 60 years, that there are some corrupt, or violent, or incompetent people in the police force. As if that groundwork were not enough: Those same politicians let violent ideologues hijack peaceful protests and destroy or steal millions of dollars of property unhindered. Then they beg for Federal bailouts – mainly of the pension obligations assumed in the aforementioned contracts. For a finale, they blame all cops for everything.
The anarchists have hidden behind legitimate protests over a horrific death. Progressive politicians have enabled it.
George Floyd’s wish has come apart under the weight of anarchists and venal incompetents.
In Chicago, between 7 p.m. May 29, and 11 p.m. May 31, 25 people were killed. In addition, 85 suffered gunshot wounds. The anarchists play with matches while the politicians play their fiddles.
And, We Are Leaving
Meanwhile, Congressional Progressives support their friends at the state and city level by appropriating culturally: “I have an idea! Let’s all dress as Ghanaians! They’re black, right?”
