Liberals who endorse Antifa and the radical trend in the BLM movement are just fools — well meaning perhaps but fools nevertheless.
Time to sell in the market?
Has the BLM movement been co-opted by anarchists? If so, how many liberals who support this movement don’t realize what they are now supporting?
Left wingers don’t admit that their approach leads to chaos in the streets. They want to blame Trump for their own behavior. Their riots are somehow his fault. They don’t get that if you remove the police as a necessary restraint in society, chaos will soon follow.
The truly scary idea is that we vote these people in and allow them to govern us. It is not inconceivable that the US would descend into a true dystopia. Imagine civil disorder and shootings everywhere, and supermarkets permanently empty or always chronically short of food.
How does black-on-black murder rates in the major cities (think Chicago) compare to the number of blacks killed needlessly and negligently by police officers? The former is a very big number, while the latter is miniscule by comparison, yet the liberal press harps on the the latter and largely ignores the former.
Which of course doesn’t mean we shouldn’t investigate and condemn blacks killed by police needlessly and negligently, but which is the more serious problem — statistically?
Yes, the black community is justified in their concern about unjustified, discriminatory treatment by police, but I would argue their biggest concern, by far, should be gang violence and violence with regard to the drug trade.
What has become increasing clear about many celebrities, whom we would continue to look up to if they just kept silent, is that many of them, relative to their political/social views, are actually borderline insane, with little sense of objective reality.
Sadly, because of their celebrity status, they voice opinions nevertheless that have a real impact on many people in the general population who give these celebrities credence because of this celebrity status — a misplaced trust, in my opinion.
What is wisdom?
Experience is the greatest teacher.
American politics is more comedy than tragedy. I suppose one should learn to laugh at it for what it is.
