Recently someone asked me a very insightful question. Since black Americans are always complaining about and committing dastardly acts, because of real or imagined problems, how is it that they have become what they have complained about? When I was viewing the ongoing criminal activity of burning, looting and physical violence against reporters who were simply doing their job I became quite angry. It did not matter to me what the angry black men and women were upset about. The brutal demonstrators threw rocks at police cars and set fires to businesses, including liquor stores they raided. Of course they consumed fire water and had a jolly good time giving the ultimate display of how uncivilized people can be. The massive void of common decency and wisdom among the population of criminals was jaw dropping.
I could not help but think about the almost comical irony concerning the Baltimore rioters. On one hand they were cursing capitalism and expressing the need for more jobs. Then preceding to confirm how stupid they are as they commenced to burn businesses up that had been a source of jobs. But the truth is, whether it’s the bully thugs of Baltimore, the Debbie downers of Detroit, the shysters of Chicago or the complainers in Cleveland, there is one common denominator. That is a dangerous philosophical base which includes hatred for America, capitalism, virtue, civility, liberty and self-reliance.
For decades, the liberal controllers of government schools have systematically and purposely indoctrinated generations of young Americans, particularly blacks against almost anything that is good and mentally stimulating.
Then there is the government of Baltimore, starting with its progressive mayor who was concerned about giving people the space to destroy and almost lost the whole city to destructive cretins. Her wrong decisions allowed thugs to gain so much ground that the Baltimore Orioles had to play their opponents in an empty stadium. In my opinion that was not a good decision. They should have used the force necessary to shut down the efforts of those who were using the death of one individual as an excuse to destroy the city.
The free speech of looters, fire starters and those assaulting police officers should not have been of any concern to anybody including the media. Simply because they were obstructing the rights of business owners, people in general and even the police who, according to their job description, should have put forth more effort to protect the city and its citizens. The failed mayor of Baltimore was and remains so misguided in her interpretation of the law. She forced the police to put forth a wimpy effort against criminals who were then strengthened in their mission to kill, steal and destroy.
The United States of America is a nation of laws. Some of which are enforceable guidelines for the protection of law abiding sovereign citizens. They are not silly proclamations to allow looters, gang bangers and wannabes to destroy everything in sight because of some imaginary racist boogeyman. “We the People” who truly desire a better life for our fellow Americans must demand that government be a fearsome force against evil doers, no matter what their color.
I am of the opinion that the Baltimore rioting was allowed either on purpose, or thru stupidity to get out of control and the looters were given way too much leeway. Some pundits called it a delicate balance. There is nothing delicate or balanced about thugs destroying private property, assaulting police officers, stealing and burning cars. Thus a swift and powerful force should have been applied to stop the bully cretins who were more interested in decreasing jobs by burning businesses than seeking the truth about what really happened to Freddy Gray.
It was almost hilarious to witness the attorney for the Gray family call conservatives racist. This after witnessing hours and hours of the end result of progressive, liberal indoctrination being acted out viciously on the streets of Baltimore. I almost felt sorry for the Gray family attorney, who like many of the rioters blaming conservatives for the plight of blacks (he called them African Americans). As long as black Americans continue to blame others for every problem (most of which they bring upon themselves) life will continue to be nothing more than misery for them and their generations far into the future.
If Black Americans truly want a better life, it would behoove them to quickly stop being willing agents of destruction and seek the path that leads to righteousness and restoration. Black Americans must wean themselves away from the Alinsky, Soros inspired path of destruction.
Let us pray for wisdom and renewal to replace ignorance, misguided rage and broken families.
