The BLM movement, which has morphed into a virulent, anarchic parody of itself, has a lot of useful idiots, highly educated white kids, who think they are fighting racism.
Liberals who endorse Antifa and the radical trend in the BLM movement are just fools — well meaning perhaps but fools nevertheless.
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.
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.
American politics is more comedy than tragedy. I suppose one should learn to laugh at it for what it is.
Can’t see how anyone could vote for this Democratic ticket. Would have to believe the “from darkness into the light” nonsense.
Obama was surprising strong on the issue of fighting and decimating the Islamic terrorists, not just in running down bin Laden, but in the unprecedented number of drone assassinations — we became the assassination nation, par excellence, under this Democrat president.
But his divisive and poorly conceived (the young refused to pay for the health insurance of the old) Obamacare program was a fiasco from the get-go and the wrong thing to do in the face of the economic collapse with its high unemployment, which really called for a large infrastructure program to get the country back to work. Consequently, the economic recovery during his entire 2-terms in office was anemic at best, with consistently low GDP year after year. The economy eventually did recovery in spite of, not because of, Obama.
As a left-wing ideologue, Obama was supremely unsuited to guide the country’s economy back to health, with his openly hostile attitude toward capitalism, profit-oriented corporations as well as investors. Biden will be more of the same, should he be elected, just when the country needs someone who is pro-business. Yet we are faced with the same problems that happened in 2008/9 — how to get a large number of unemployed people back to work quickly, and how to make a large number of businesses profitable again, particularly small businesses shuttered and hit so hard by this coronavirus.
Ironically, the same solution, a large infrastructure program, that presented itself in 2008/9 but was never pursued, is the solution to our economic woes today. But will it be ignored again?
Trump gets police endorsement.
