We don’t intend to make any informed comments about the police shooting of a Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin. We don’t have enough context. Best not join the chorus of mainstream media which will seize on any edited video clip to feed a narrative and run with the headline for days instead of ignoring it like they did with the murder of 5yo Cannon Hinnant.
Let’s not even begin to discuss Democrat Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, who despite the lack of evidence, immediately sided with the mob. As is most often the case, evidence will show that the whole situation could have been avoided were instructions followed. That isn’t to condone excessive force but to recognize edited clips can misrepresent realities.
So what of those businesses and houses of prayer that proudly displayed ‘Black Lives Matter’ outside? Well it only goes to prove that the mob doesn’t care. One would think insurance companies were encouraging BLM signs in shop front windows as a way to help policy holders lower premiums. The appeasers were eaten first in Kenosha. A car dealership was torched. Why do innocent business owners end up victims?
At what point, if they haven’t already, will Americans stop tolerating any more protestors shining flashlights through their windows in the middle of the night? What will they tell their terrorized children who are woken up by obscenities yelled in their suburban Portland neighborhoods demanding they abandon their properties?
Where was the condemnation during the Democratic National Convention? Why no mention of the riots? Oh, that’s right. They’re all peaceful protestors.
We think that the strategy of chaos hurting Trump’s re-election chances will spectacularly backfire. All of the platitudes that parsed the lips of the hypocritical and divisive Obamas or woke celebrities at the DNC only reinforced they are the party for the elites.
The media may be complicit in cheerleading but ‘lived experience‘ is one factor that no amount of political bluster or fancy journalism can overcome. It was the same in 2016.
Citizens are rightly furious. Despotic mayors and governors have subjected them to unnecessary economic pain and stripped them of their dignity through coronavirus lockdowns but stay silent through the mayhem of BLM and Antifa. The biased media only amplifies their rage.
Normally, a dud economy would be an election killer for an incumbent. This time, the sinister politics of the opposition will force many fence sitters to bite their lip and tolerate 4 more years of Trump’s vulgarity. We think a landslide awaits, albeit with an ugly 75 days leading into it.
In the words of Nancy Pelosi, “people will do what they will do.”
