If this is what they are calling ‘justice’, some of these big-time corporate donors need to seriously re-think their support of social ‘justice’ causes.
Justice is a very specific term.
Activists and opportunists have stretched the word out of shape worse than the elastic on Michael Moore’s sweatpants. But words still have meaning. Justice is a process that ideally leads to the vindication of the innocent, and the condemnation of the guilty.
Unlike some of the other notable cases of apparent wrongdoing on the part of the police officers (who await their turn at a fair trial) the circumstances surrounding Jacob Blake case are not nearly as clear.
For one thing, there is the ‘small matter’ of the woman who had called the police to stop Jacob from terrorizing her more than he already had. The things she alleges against him are what you might expect from the worst sort of power-mad aggressor — Dear Don Lemon: Here Are The Sick Details On The Sexual Assault Claim Against Jacob Blake–Will You Report This?
Throw that in with the open warrant, the 2 times he was tased, the aggression against the cops, not to mention the knife that was found in the car, and he is hardly a sympathetic figure — no matter what the end result of that interaction was.
Credit where it is due — whatever you may think of their assessment of the problem — many speakers at a ‘Justice For Jacob’ march in Kenosha were making impassioned pleas for change were doing it in the way that citizens are supposed to petition their government over their grievances.
Like this one:
Pastor Lawrence Kirby of the Acts Church of Kenosha told the crowd he views injustice as more of a “human” problem than a racial one.
And that fact needs to strike a chord with everybody, he said.
“Every American ought to have a problem with injustice in our nation,” Kirby said.
In a prayer, Kirby asked for the nation to come together as one.
“Let each one of us live a life that will bring justice in the community that we live,” he said. — KenoshaNews
Peaceful protest, you’re doing it right. But not everyone did it that way.
Most of the speakers talked about justice peacefully. But near the end of the rally, one man introduced as “our president” strayed from the message by saying, “If you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours.”
The man, who was not able to be immediately identified, said:
“I love being black. I love black people. I know some of you may not want to say that … You tell us how to behave when you have taken our lives. The black man is worth something. His life is worth something. I have to say god damn it – if you kill one of us, it’s time for us to kill one of yours. I know everybody don’t want to hear that. But damn why are we the ones who have to keep burying ours and got to keep clean for you to see us as being human? We ain’t never did nothing to nobody.” —Breitbart
We might ask the woman who called the police, who was in bed with a child of her own when Jacob was alleged to have broken into her home, sexually assaulted her in the same fashion that Biden is said to have assaulted Tara Reade, taken her car keys, and left with her car if she would agree with the assessment that he ‘ain’t done nothing to nobody.’
Justice — if you claim to want it — means letting the person whose actions you are condemning stand before a judge, make his case, present evidence and await a verdict.
Murdering some random strangers to settle a score because you have convinced yourself Jacob was shot without cause would do nothing more than to introduce a gang warfare tit-for-tat mentality on the national scale.
Come to think of it, isn’t this precisely the call-to-action Farrakhan has been demanding for years?
Wasn’t he calling for 10,000 men to rise up and kill those who kill us? — Why yes it was. We covered that in a couple of pieces. The video on this one still hasn’t been scrubbed from the interwebz. How is he getting a pass on this while everything playing out is somehow supposedly ‘Trump’s fault’?
Check out ClashRadio for more wit and wisdom from ClashDaily’s Big Dawg. While you’re at it, here’s his latest book:
Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
