Setting aside the innumeracy of the “damning report” on Ferguson’s policing, consider instead the failure to give law enforcement any benefit of doubt, the rush to judgment, the inflammatory language regarding profiling, the deliberate refusal to consider the real cause of profiling (massively disproportionate rates of crime by race, age, and sex), and the national media’s and national political establishment’s myopic focus on what turned out to be a completely justifiable shooting in a small town of a hulking thug who had earlier committed a strong arm robbery.
Steve Sailer asks:
How much blood do Eric Holder and George Soros, who pays for many of the protests, have on their hands?
There is Zemir Begic, the two murdered cops in Brooklyn, and now these two Missouri cops, who appear to be survivors. The toll is starting to mount.
We’ve seen these “hit and run” tactics before, and if anyone expects soul searching or an apology from the partisans of revolution and disorder, they’re going to wait a long time. Their preferred method is simply to move on to the cause du jour. Even Al Sharpton, of the infamous Tawana Brawley hoax, now gets invited to the White House and appears frequently as a media commentator. There is simply no justice in this massive, unjustifiable, and malicious hate campaign. But at least we’ve seen, yet again, that nothing has changed since the 1960s, when this disorder was unleashed and the excuse-making began in earnest.
The only saving grace is that these events remind us that the Grand Unifier is actually a parochial, tribalist hack, whose policies have radicalized even more of the middle class into a suspicious, right-wing, law-and-order party that knows it will get no quarter, no magnanimity, and no decency from the Holders and Obamas of the world.
