The charging of the six Baltimore police officers (half of whom are black) in the death of Freddie Gray is pure politics. The charges against the police officers, rather than the crack down on the rioters is a sign of the times in most metropolitan cities in America. It is a clear example of how virtue is on it’s way down and vice and indecency are again on the rise.
When six police officers are thrown under the bus it’s done for two reasons, both meant to further the cause of the progressive left, the race hustlers and the political class that never let’s a crisis go to waste. It galvanizes their support and it ensures that city will burn again.
The charges were brought amidst the rioting of thugs, burning, breaking and looting in order to pay it forward. In other words to make it appear like justice is being sought — which appeases the barbarians in the street and the liberal pharisees in the ivory towers of the news media. But more importantly it purchases the race hustling progressives a “Burn The City” card for the day the officers are found not guilty. This will again put the liberal elite in the position of master among slave, adult among children, rescuer among the distraught, leader among the savages, peacemaker among the barbarians. The left can once again ride to the rescue of those they look down upon, who they find inferior and unequal, unqualified to fend for themselves. This “transform America” class is shrewd enough to turn every national news story into the need to protect from a shadowy boogie man few have ever seen, “the racist.” Racist is just another word for “white” America.
In reality however, these racists are not those who hate anyone, they are simply those with less pigment in their epidermis who mind their own business, go to work every day, pays their taxes, pray for crime to recede, morality to rise, poverty to evaporate, families to be whole, babies to be born, and have loving parents married to each other so that their civilization will survive and their nation and Founders will be honored rather than torn down.
The saddest thing about Baltimore are how the thugs in the streets destroying the city were given sanction when the mayor said “give them room to destroy.” This is not the response we would expect for people whom one looks at as equals. We treat equals with equality, equality under the law, not allow them to act like savages and then dismiss it as anything other than what it is, barbarism. If the leadership in Baltimore looked at them as equals, they would have treated them as the lawless they are. But they don’t look at them as equals, they look at them as incapable of living up to civil codes of behavior. Instead we have prosecutors making stupid statements such as “our time has come” when deciding to charge the officers in the death of Mr. Gray.
The police in cities whose leadership is liberal are given stand down orders when their constituents leave their cages. From Los Angeles to Ferguson to New York to Baltimore the police do their job and are thrown under buses while the predators are defended as if there is any honor in it or them.
A very different scenario unfolded in Garland Texas at a Draw Muhammad Cartoon Contest, when an officer was forced to act rather than wait for orders from headquarters — where politics over-rules proper police tactics. The officer in Garland Texas simply did his job and ended the threat before most people knew what had happened.
This type of action in Baltimore might have saved the city from the hands of the arsonists and looters. When liberals are in charge terrible things happen — because they encourage it, foment it and allow it. Liberals are to rioters what pyromaniacs are to forest fires. And when it is all said and done, they pronounce among the ashes and smolder that it’s the fault of the community, or the police or whites or past injustices. Balderdash!
Does anyone have the right to do what the rioters did? Whether it was the righteous indignation of an oppressed people or not? They inflicted injustice on others and their property in response to perceived injustice. This makes no logical sense and it becomes the greater evil. Those who riot because a black man was beaten or killed by a white man is far more evil when his rage causes him to beat or kill an innocent white man in response. He’s not only a racist himself, he’s a hypocrite for violating his own righteous anger about the first injustice. Injustice in the cause of injustice is being a traitor to the cause of justice. It is the greater evil. This is the difference between a Martin Luther King, Jr and the impostor race hustlers like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and President Obama.
Over the last 50 years the world has not witnessed a more preferentially treated, pampered and defended people in history than the African-American. And yet the hard working, self educated are torn down as sell outs while the tyrants, thugs, barbarians and savages are treated as if they are royalty! Heads of state get away with less. Politicians and liberal do-gooders too scared to discipline those that need it most, allow the mayhem, because those are their true constituents.
It’s an all to common scene, charge police officers with a crime and allow the crime and criminals to go unpunished. It’s an upside down world. And the innocent taxpayers pick up the tab. It’s the prized tactic in the arsenal of a self anointed, self appointed race hustling cabal. It is used to perfection over and over again and the American people apparently are falling for it, yet again. Is the public so unaware that it cannot see the forest for the trees? Are the left such believers in utopia that they are willing to allow lives to be lost and lies to be told just to see their vision advanced? A vision that for centuries has accepted destruction and death as the price necessary for their “good intentions” of “social justice” to be reached.
It’s another sad time in America and unfortunately far too few will stand up and call the news play by play as it is really unfolding — rather they will echo the lie as seen through progressive crimson colored glasses.
