It started in Minneapolis. And it could have ended there too, with a firm police presence and determination not to allow a “protest” to degenerate into riot, an orgy of anarchy, violence looting, vandalism and arson.
But the Mayor of Minneapolis, hopelessly outmatched and hopelessly inhibited by ideology-uber-alles, allowed the city to be ravaged by people who care about George Floyd about as much as a guy with a fly swatter cares about the families of the flies he swats.
Now, encouraged and emboldened by the “success” of Minneapolis, similar insanity has quickly spread through cities across the country – all of them, so far as I can tell, Democrat-dominated.
Will the Mayors of New York, Chicago, San Diego, Atlanta (where, ironically, CNN headquarters is being ravaged), etc. be more resolute in stopping this from happening than Minneapolis’s Jacob Freyweight? We won’t know for sure until tomorrow, but I’m not betting on it.
This is the USA equivalent of kristallnacht. And it is being tolerated, even aided and abetted, by the left.
Will it continue? Will these lunatics be allowed to continue their anarchy? Their devastation of our cities? Have we gone that far down the toilet?
Frankly, I don’t think so. But I certainly could be wrong. We’ll find out in the next few days.
Be worried. Be very worried.
