President Trump’s top aides, plus Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and what seems like the entire Congressional GOP, plus Conservatism Inc., have taken the knee before the Floyd Hoax riots–echoing the Left’s Narrative that police must be handcuffed, law rewritten, and “institutional racism” abolished. Only Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton has stood up for the Silent Majority of Americans who want the riots, and rioters, put down. And maybe Trump himself, in a few hesitant tweets. He better stop hesitating. His re-election depends on it.
As for the “Floyd Hoax,”
To keep the matter in perspective, remember:
- It’s far from clear that the police officer who arrested George Floyd did anything wrong, or that Floyd died from the police officer’s actions.
- Black are not “disproportionately” stopped, arrested, beaten, or shot, compared to their level of criminality.
- They are actually stopped, etc. less than they should be—the result of police already exercising “restraint” in policing blacks, for fear of being called racist.
Now, as a fish always rots from the head down, let’s start with the doings at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
Etc. etc. here.
