The government amasses much information that destroys liberal shibboleths about race and crime. What to do? Well, the Obama administration has simply stopped posting the information from the Bureau of Justice Statistics and pulled down the data that shows the massive disparities in race, crime, and homicide. These are what may be called “hate” facts: true things that it is considered uncouth and immoral to notice.
Expect more of this on everything from health outcomes and women in combat to gay sex crimes and anti-social behavior in the years ahead. Of course, while everyone does not know these omissions are part of a web of lies, their daily life experience, monthly race riots in downtown Chicago, and the indignities of encounters with the underclass cannot easily be explained away.
A regime that depends on lies is very fragile, indeed. That is not to say it is doomed or incapable of paroxysms of violence in its decline.
