Left wing thugs are planning to sabotage President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities. An umbrella organization, #DisruptJ20, also known as the DC Counter-Inaugural Welcoming Committee, describes its mission as “building the framework needed for mass protests to shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump and planning widespread direct actions to make that happen.” Such actions will include setting up blockades at checkpoints to prevent people from gaining access to the inauguration proceedings. In addition to attempting to shut down the inauguration ceremonies and any related celebrations, they are “planning to paralyze the city itself.”
“Systemic” racism in America – that is, racism built into the system and thus dispensing injustice by default – is a fact-starved obsession with the Left as well as with ordinary, decent people who happen to be susceptible to the Left’s compassionate sounding lies. Yes, white racism against black people in America does exist and it is still a problem. Black racism against Jews is also real and is still a problem, as are various other brands of racism. But the idea that America is somehow peculiarly racist, inherently or institutionally, is only true in one place: Leftist-designed quota systems to ensure certain races are entitled to things that other races are not.
There is a disturbing intersection between the Black Lives Matter organization and Jew hatred. Militant black groups such as the Nation of Islam and the Black Panthers historically supported the Arab cause against Israel in the 1960s and ’70s, seeing in “Palestinians” an analogy to their own struggles. BLM has taken up an even more virulently anti-Israel and anti-Jewish position, supporting the BDS campaign and accusing Israel of “apartheid” and “genocide”.
A white policewoman in Tulsa, OK uses what appeared to be excessive force in shooting an unarmed, black suspect after he had already been tased and was on the ground. A black policeman in Charlotte, NC shoots an armed, dangerous black career criminal after nearly a dozen warnings to drop his gun. Yet there’s not a single protest or picket sign in Oklahoma – all the destruction and mayhem is in North Carolina. And why is that?
The August riots in Milwaukee were another unfortunate example of leftists and their media allies actually creating violence. Here was a situation where a black suspect with previous weapons violations was actually armed and dangerous, would not disarm after repeated warnings, and was shot by a black police officer. But no matter: the narrative was set a long time ago, facts are troublesome at best, and there’s never a bad time for outright thuggery.
After a disastrous weekend for Obama’s immigration, gun control, and FBI policies, punctuated by yet more preventable Islamic terrorist attacks on American soil, the president really needed a distraction. And what better place for the Left to create this than at ground zero in one of the few states to openly – and popularly – resist Obama’s insane transgender bathroom proclamation. So agitprop thugs BLM are at it again, with an insta-mob riot in North Carolina where the Left really needs to get out the vote about a month from now.
