They’ll spin it.
They’ll try and spread the guilt around as if collective ownership of wrong excuses it.
They’ll build strawmen made out of Donald Trump, micro-aggressions, gun control, the NRA, and intersectional grievance, and then hoist those high to try and misdirect attention so that our conversations exist within their comfort zone rather than the public square.
They’ll do this while they claim they too stand with the commemorative #Dallas, and while they pretend they never advocated precisely the sort of violence that produced the wholesale massacre of police officers in Dallas.
We know they will because they were doing these sorts of things right up until the moment Dallas happened.
Thing is, they and they alone wrought this. Anyone that didn’t see Dallas coming is either ignorant of history or unaware of recent events.
When the sitting mayor of Baltimore said she gave thugs a “place to destroy”, that helped make the violence of the 2015 riots permissible. As pundits gave their $0.02, they legitimized it. When Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and leading Democrats openly aligned with Black Lives Matter, they mainstreamed the hard left. #Dallas is where the hard left always takes us.
It’s how the Summer of Love in 1967 turned into the horror show that was Altamont two years after. It’s how a quirky Marxist-leaning orator lured hundreds to a camp in South America and convinced them to drink the Kool-Aid. It’s how Venezuela – with more oil wealth than most middle eastern kingdoms – has been reduced to abject poverty. It’s how once great cities like Detroit, Oakland, and Baltimore have been reduced to metropolitan hells on earth.
Our Community Organizer in Chief has been stirring the pot for the past eight years. Indeed, even as police officers fought for their very survival in Dallas hospitals, he stirred it some more by trying to pivot the tragedy back towards gun control, his comfort zone. Social media adds to the it – web curators ensure a deliberately slanted version of events becomes mainline content at the expense of ideas they don’t like. People that ought to know better purposely build walls – or advocate the use of force as with the case of former Professor Melissa Click at University of Missouri – to silence others.
And then the left says we need dialogue. But when they do, they don’t really mean a dialogue – they mean a monologue consisting of them telling everyone else in America what to do.
Sorry, but that’s not how any of this works.
Yes, we have the right to question Black Lives Matter. And the right to point towards Hillary Clinton when she tweets to them, or to House Democrats when they mimic hands up don’t shoot. We absolutely have a right to question lopsided narratives even if the ones pushing those narratives have taken up arms to try and impose their point of view upon us.
We’re teetering on the verge of all out ochlocracy, more commonly known as mob rule. Until the left can accept a more inclusive and tolerant approach towards our national discourse, we’ll continue to dangle dangerously upon this precipice.
