Why was George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minnesota police immediately declared “racist?” This question is the third rail in today’s Orwellian world of newspeak, and anybody who dares ask it is struck with 600 volts of pure vitriol by the media and other elements of the political Left that racialize every event they can to further their agendas.
The dark symmetry between the media and the mayhem on the street is unmistakable, undeniable, and a clear and present danger to the survival of our republic. The media animates the actors with a consistent diet of disinformation and deceit to elicit a response powerful enough to mold public policy and terrify any would-be objectors into silence. Activism in the media is by no means a recent phenomenon, but its intensity if far beyond anything witnessed in our lifetimes. These people who have undertaken the responsibility to write the first rough draft of history are not the journalists; they are merely democrat-party activists masquerading as such. The Left is here, and they are coming for you, me, the monuments, literature, and anything that doesn’t pass the scrutiny of their authoritarian standards.
Additionally, Americans have never seen this level of censorship or rabid promoting of cancel culture. Frankly, the dehumanization of large swaths of Americans rings of history getting set up to repeat itself. Recently even Right Wire Report ran into a censorship issue with YouTube over this video. Who knew to recite the French Revolution history on what the Mob wrought was inciting violence?
There is a legitimate core in black communities across the country who are exercising their first amendment right to peacefully assemble and express their grievances and concerns to effect change. These Americans are the living expression of Martin Luther King’s indelible words and approach to justice that, unfortunately, isn’t appreciated by the thugs we see choosing to destroy, murder, maim, and otherwise perpetrate the exact thing they claim to be combating.
Do you think Right Wire Report is being hyperbolic? The anarcho-communist “autonomous zone” near Capitol Hill in Seattle, Washington has reportedly embraced the anarcho-capitalist dream of creating a private vigilante police force to patrol the streets of the commune. In the autonomous zone, the streets are currently controlled by a hip hop artist turned warlord by the name of Raz Simone, who has established an armed private police force that does not hesitate to dole out beatings to communal miscreants. The vandal is then ordered to hand over his phone as a tribute to Raz, under the threat of more violence. “You just broke my glasses! I’m blind! You just broke my glasses and stole my phone!” the man pleads, before being told, “Yeah, we should have broken your face.” Does America now have its first Caliphate?

Democrat politicians and media are misrepresenting, and oftentimes outright lying, about the data surrounding police killings of unarmed suspects. People are being convinced that white cops are killing African Americans in droves, and it’s an epidemic that must be addressed by defunding police departments. Nothing could be farther from the truth than this mentality that demonizes the overwhelming majority of law enforcement officers who perform their jobs with integrity and without the undeserved labels of “killer cops,” “racist pigs,” and other pejoratives that don’t deserve ink.
The sad reality is that Leftist elements at the city and county levels are using untruths to create public policy. Recently, 9 out of 13 Minneapolis City Council members stood on stage to announce their intent to disband the city’s police department. This will only increase crime and harm minority communities where crime rates are higher. The council members are under some delusion that criminals won’t be more brazen in the absence of police, or that police presence has no positive impact on reducing crime. This week, CNN’s Alysin Camerota asked the city council president, Lisa Bender, during an interview:
Alysin Camerota asks: “What if in the middle of the night my home is broken into. Who do I call?”
Bender responded: “Yes, I hear that loud and clear from a lot of my neighbors. And I know — and myself, too, and I know that that comes from a place of privilege.”
This is the mental breakdown we are dealing with in the country today. Apparently, it’s “white privilege” to call the police if your home is broken into and your life is in jeopardy. We are at a flashpoint in society, where the worst aspects of liberalism in academia, popular culture, cancel culture, and the democrat party has introduced a veiled version of the Ku Klux Klan to ride across our great nation stereotyping, attacking, and threatening people to grovel on the ground and apologize for a crime they didn’t commit. God help us all.
