You know, there was once upon a time when it was a great many of us laughingly referred to the followers of liberalism/progressivism as being afflicted with some sort of mental disorder. Who knew that we would eventually come to be proven right? We continue to hear from more and more of those who insist upon continuing to use all manner of baseless accusations of racism as being their rationale for defunding all of law enforcement. And when you look closely at who it is that’s taking part in such activities it becomes very obvious, very quickly, that they are very clearly suffering from some form of mental deficiency or experiencing some sort of mental breakdown.
Take for instance a guy, currently employed by the Harvard Divinity School of Philosophy, Cornel West, who declared this past Wednesday on CNN’s “Tonight,” hosted by Don ‘LaMoan’ that American police “have been out of control since the slave patrol.” West seems to be yet another example of what passes, these says, for a ‘professor’ in so very many of our supposed institutions of ‘higher’ learning. And I can’t help but wonder if, were in it not for affirmative action, if this guy would, today, be doing anything other than hanging out on some street corner waiting to take part in the next riot/shopping spree resulting from yet another perceived injustice.
During a ‘discussion’ on George Floyd and Daunte Wright, West said, “So the question is what does a general your genuine love for Black people, a genuine care for black people look like in this situation. And there’s a number of different responses to that, but all of us have to come to terms, and we’re not just talking about Black folks, just as a human being who has a deep care and concern about a people who have been dealing with police, who have been out of control since the slave patrol. So we’re talking about hundreds of years. There’s thousands of black people who have been shot down by the police, male and female, children and grandchildren.”
He went on to say, “How many times have I complied and still got dragged off. I’m a Black man in a three-piece suit. I still get treated bad, not as bad as my brothers and sisters in the hood, but any Black person can be terrorized and traumatized with police out of control. So this notion that somehow if you comply, I tell them to get off the crack pipe and try to get some sympathy and sensitivity to their fellow human beings who are of color who are Black. It is not just Black. It’s brown and indigenous people, but it’s especially Black, white supremacy targets Black folk in that way, and we’ve got to come up with ways of protecting each other and defending each other.”
And he continued, “We can’t allow this to go on and on and on. Some kind of accountability has to be in place.” And it was at this point that ‘LaMoan’ said, “This distrust of police it didn’t just come out of nowhere. There is a reason for it. There is a reason for it.” To which West responded by saying, “Absolutely. And the police who claim to be good but still silent when their partners are engaging in this kind of vicious arbitrary use of power against Black folk, they are complicit, too. And it spills over to the politicians who give us a little lip service but don’t want to really send police to jail. Police need to go to jail after a trial.” Spoken like a true NUT!
Why are Police (regardless of their skin color) so unwilling to risk their lives when making an arrest? Permit me to make a few observations that have clearly escaped this ‘professor,’ Mr. West. The two deceased upon which he bases his claims of “racism” are, or rather were, felons with a record as long, if not longer, than his arm. Black felons are routinely armed and tend to be not the least bit hesitant when it comes to using violence as a first resort. When arrested, the “race card” is played within moments of the arrest with far too many members of the ‘black community” willing to form mobs in an attempt to intimidate those police officers involved.
Also, they can rely on what has become a very complicit ‘fake news’ media, as well as corrupt politicians, to take their side regardless of any evidence which does not fit their limited mindset. Then the protest by way of ‘violence,’ destroying and looting anything in their locality (although Work Boots and Fathers Day cards are notable exceptions) and then complain when no store or shopkeeper is willing to open anywhere near the ‘hood.’ Their current behavior is very clearly ‘insurrection’ but don’t expect the Democrats to get too worked up over it. And, most certainly, one shouldn’t hold one’s breath waiting to them to do anything constructive.
Anyone who tries to flee an arrest have made a conscious decision to do so and by so doing become the ones most responsible for putting their own lives at risk. This latest individual to get himself shot was nothing other than a victim of his own stupidity as he was shot attempting to flee an arrest for an outstanding warrant. Look, when the police decide you’re in need of being arrested, you’re gonna be arrested. You’re going downtown whether alive or dead. The rule of thumb should be to cooperate and do what you’re told. If you cooperate your chances of getting shot are about equal to being struck by lightning while being bitten by a shark. Statistics being what they are.
And why is it viewed as acceptable for these people to resist the police? Every one of the recent racial shootings was because the black person CHOSE to resist, and not to comply with the police. Why is this acceptable to blacks? Why does this group of people believe THEY do not have to comply with law enforcement? And if you’re so worried about being “shot by police”, why would you give them a reason to shoot you? How do the police know that YOU are not going to shoot them when you resist arrest, jump back into your car, all while knowing there is a warrant out for your arrest? What are they supposed to do? YOU have chosen this path, not the police.
How about one being responsible for one’s own actions? These shootings are 100 percent the fault of those people who decide NOT to comply with the police. Forget about opinions, forget about media headlines, and forget about all those screaming leftists. All you really need to know is the following: It’s black males who comprise 8% of the population. And yet it’s black males who commit: 34.5 percent of all reported rapes and sexual assaults, 50 percent of all murders, 51 percent of all armed robberies and 53 percent of all aggravated assaults. This is relatively consistent, year in, year out, per the FBI Uniform Crime Reports. And yet it’s the fault of the police?
And finally were it not for the fact that these leftist lunatics are now in pretty much complete control of our government I suppose there would still be a certain a mount of humor in how it is that they insist upon behaving. But things are now rapidly spiraling out of control between the sheer idiocy taking place at our border and the increasing level of violence encouraged by those on the left and now taking place in the vast majority of our Democrat controlled cities. It has really become something that is no longer a laughing matter. Our country is being destroyed right before our eyes by a specific cadre of people who are most certainly, certifiably insane.
