‘Tis true that #BlackLivesMatter has, and has always had, messaging issue. The riots currently happening across the US are just the most recent iteration of their communication chaos. They’ve never been able to agree on whether it was better to “protest” or to riot, loot, burn, and murder police officers.
And it makes perfect sense that they can’t agree on either their message or who their target audience is. Some of them actually do want to protest in a somewhat peaceful manner and proclaim to Whites that Black Lives Matter. Others, however, are drawn in by the chance at an orgy of violence and looting. And, it’s that second group that is the one getting both the media’s attention and that of politicians.
Of course, I’m White, so I could be completely wrong about this. The ones that seem more civilized and to be focusing upon the supposed message of #BlackLivesMatter could just be “Code-Switching.”
Be ready and watching for the upcoming upsurge in COVID-19 cases as reported by the Lamestream Media and capitalized upon by certain, mostly Democrat, politicians. It will happen soon!
Once the Blacks grow bored with this circus of rioting, looting, and generalized violence and hatred, the media is quickly – nigh instantly – going to start blasting us all with fear-based screeds about coronavirus and how it’s back and killing people like never before.
Remember, the Lamestream media and those that they pander to need fear, uncertainty, doubt, and hate to survive. Hence, Americans need to be ready and watching for the upcoming upsurge in COVID-19 cases.
When news of George Floyd dying while in Powderhorn “neighborhood” – quoted because Powderhorn is an “area” with several neighborhoods in it – of Minneapolis, MN, I stayed quiet and awaited more details to surface. Why? Because I’m rational.
What I Finally Didn’t See And What I Did
Firstly, what I didn’t see was any signs that Mr. Floyd resisted arrest. Or, rather, if he did resist, it was by merely falling to ground and refusing to rise and enter the police vehicle – the way protestors are counseled to resist arrest without incurring a violent reaction from the police.
Secondly, I also saw no signs of anger, racism, or anything similar in the manner of the three police officers involved. Nor did I see anything that would be overtly constituting brutality by rational people. In neither video does it appear as if the police officers were doing anything that wasn’t something close to routine. Sort of.
Yeah, sort of, and there’s the rub. Because what I did finally see was officer Derek Chauvin calmly and “professionally” use his knee to occlude at least one of Mr. Floyd’s carotid arteries, which can easily kill someone in a very short amount of time without ever impeding their airways. I also saw the other two officers either not notice this or not care.
So fuck! I didn’t see George Floyd “die while in police custody;” I saw George Floyd murdered – at a minimum, Negligent Homicide – by officer Derek Chauvin in the presence of three other Minneapolis police officers.
So, my initial informed opinion was on George Floyd’s side – it still is – and against the Minneapolis PD. I was and am happy Chauvin was arrested on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. I’m also pleased that the other three officers present were fired from positions in law enforces. Indeed, I’m even slightly bothered by none of them being charged as accessories in this case.
But, As Always, The Blacks Will Be Blacks
My sympathies quickly started to fade, however, when the Blacks once again lived down to expectations. Honestly, it was a vain hope that they wouldn’t almost immediately turn to violence, looting, and arson.
Still though, this time I could almost understand their irrational violence when it was in Minneapolis.
But then, again as always, the Afrosphere “blew up” with calls for widespread violence directed at the White Race and the riots spread across America, firing up wherever there were enough Blacks to pose a threat to Americans’ lives and property. At that point, my sympathies for them died.
Dealing with Black Riots Correctly
I truly believe that, at this point, Black Riots need to be dealt with as national security threats and insurrection instead of a criminal problem. Direct military force, preferably based upon assault helicopters, e.g., AH-64 Apaches and UH-60 Black Hawks, and drones, e.g., MQ-1 Predators and MQ-9 Reapers.
This way infantry units supported by armored units can maintain a cordon while air assets safely quell the enemy. It puts the least number of Americans in harm’s way while maximizing the neutralization of hostile assets.
While the 1st Amendment enumerates the right of the People peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, Black Protests are, based upon longitudinal results, inherent unpeaceful. One can rarely witness such a assembly of aggrieved Blacks that doesn’t include either violence, the immediate threat of violence, or the violation of multiple laws.
So, since it must be assumed for the sake of public safety that Black Protests are just part of Black Rioting and Insurrection, it is not proper for them to be prima facie considered to be protected by the Constitution. Restrictions upon such assemblies must be enacted and response forces activated and placed on alert whenever they occur.
With the increasingly polarized and violent contention over “reopening” America – i.e., easing or removing the various “Lock Downs” – it’s quite apt to say that everyone in Kung Flu Fighting.
Yeah, this pandemic has been a dream come for the various wannabe tin pot dictators that have been allowed into power across our nations. They’re loving the power it gives them, especially since they can claim that they’re just serving the greater good.
And no; I sincerely doubt that these paroxysms of tyranny are part of some deep plan or that they’re, for the most part, even consciously based in the desire for authoritarian power. No, this is the worse thing, the desire to “do what’s right” for the proles and others that need to managed, controlled, and protected from themselves for their own good and the good of their fellows.
That’s why both these tyrannical pseudo-parents and their ever-dutiful media have framed the lockdowns and other curtailments of liberty as something that must be done in order to protect others. It makes it so that anyone who doesn’t abide by these restrictions can be framed as a public enemy.
And, to make matters sadder and to increase the scope of the Kung Flu Fighting, there’s plenty within our borders – mostly but not entirely Democrats and Likely Democrats – who seem to be more than OK with these infringements upon the People’s liberty and basic rights.
But why are they OK with this? Honestly, I don’t know. There’s a host of possible reasons for it, both conscious and unconscious, ranging from derangement-based hatred of President Trump and everyone who supports him, through schadenfreude, and on to honest fear their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Judging which combination of those is behind anyone’s position is far beyond me.
And so the Kung Flu Fighting will continue and escalate.
What is Collusion? All of the above was collusion and were heinous acts that have been allowed to be perpetrated with no real, concrete consequences for the offenders, all of which are still walking around alive and free within our nation’s borders. Instead, we the Dems in Congress engaged in a long-running coup attempt against the POTUS we elected, again without any signs of them facing real, concrete consequences at the righteous hands of we, the People.
And yes! This was all a concerted effort to install Hillary as the President of the United States – a hellish fate that we just managed to avoid through the efforts of the American people and the laws that govern our democracy and mitigate the threats against it.
