Something changed in America in the summer of 2014. A criminal, as low a lowlife as a man can be, knocked down a store proprietor and robbed his shop for drug supplies, sauntered down the middle of the street, attacked a policeman, and died in the struggle… exactly as it often goes, when a violent thug attacks a policeman (that’s one of the main reasons that, traditionally, criminals don’t attack policemen!).
… And instead of America uniting in sudden recognition of the dangerous job of the modern big city policemen, America was divided, as an incomprehensible movement developed around the theme that the concept of “law and order” is evil, that having a functioning criminal justice system is evil, that criminals should be allowed free rein over America’s cities, and that any desire to defend civilization from barbarism is somehow a reactionary and racist goal!
The movement has taken the name “Black Lives Matter” – and its culture of unrelenting violence has the Democratic Party cowering in its shadow.
But is it really black lives that matter to them at all, or is it something else? ... such as, perhaps, a fear that the Democratic Party's most fundamental voting base may finally be realizing that they are not being well served by their monolithic party identity?
