#BatonRouge is barely two hours old as I write this. I suspect that within the next 24 hours the usual narrative will play out:
– Barack Obama will try and steer this towards his comfort zone of gun control and “woe was me America is so terrible”.
– The mainstream media will do their very best to separate race-based activism from the murder of Baton Rogue police officers.
– We’ll be lectured about how peaceful Black Lives Matter is and how in Baton Rogue they meant no harm.
– Liberal pundits will try and bring up things like “police militarization” and “the way police interact with black communities” because those topics are their comfort zones.
– The hard left will talk about abolition of police forces in favor of “community solutions”, whatever that means.
– Miss Alabama or some other third-rate celebrity will preen before his or her social media account to explain to us how they fit in to all this, as if that celebrity was there on the ground when shots rang out and thus is empowered to tell us why they don’t feel bad about murdered cops.
– Race-based activist leaders like Shaun King – who recently tweeted that a Donald Trump win in November might require a coup like the one attempted in Turkey – will induce more rage among their rank and file while denying any responsibility for the results that rage produces.
– House Democrats will engage in guerilla tactics on the floor of Congress to press their agenda while raising campaign money off of it.
How many more police officers have to die before we treat this problem seriously? When do we wake up and demand that the Attorney General intervene?
Make no mistake, the Attorney General has been all to happy to intervene in more than 30 municipal police departments across this country. Where she has, “guidelines” have been imposed in places like Baltimore that make it a heck of a lot harder for police officers to protect and serve communities of color. As is all too typical with the Obama administration, the Attorney General has all but nationalized over 30 municipal police departments. It should come as no surprise Hillary Clinton wants a top down Washington-driven set of “national guidelines” imposed upon ALL police departments.
The Attorney General could do one of two things in response to #BatonRogue:
– She could resign from her position, citing her ineffective response to these terrorist attacks against our police departments.
– She could invoke the RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) Statute to target activist leaders like Deray McKesson and Shaun King. It shouldn’t be hard to find Mr. McKesson or Mr. King – the White House doors are always open for them. Others sit behind the phone number 212-633-6646 in Manhattan (street addresses are 39 W 14th Street and 147 W 24th Street).
The Attorney General of course, isn’t going to resign. Why would she, when she plans on serving as Hillary Clinton’s Attorney General until 2020.
If she invoked the RICO Statute, it wouldn’t just break the back of race-based activist groups intent on destabilizing the United States through terrorism. It would bring those at the heads of these groups to account for all that they are responsible for in all this.
