Normal Americans Are Wondering: When Will the Insanity Stop?
What makes President Trump such a breath of fresh air is that he says what normal Americans are thinking. What Democrats characterize as the anguished cry of downtrodden rioters, President Trump calls what it is: lawlessness, thuggery, and weakness on the part of spineless Democrat leaders.
Normal Americans know the President’s views on law and order. He is currently doing a show-and-tell demonstration on what’s in store for everyone if the madness of Seattle’s CHOP zones spread under Democrat rule.
What is baffling to many law-abiding Americans of all colors is how George Floyd, a drug addled ex-con trying to pass a bogus $20 bill, is now the new Martin Luther King, Jr.
The same goes for Rayshard Brooks, who went berserk, snatched the Atlanta policeman’s taser after attacking and fighting him, and tried to shoot the arresting officer. A taser is considered a deadly weapon under Georgia law. The video of the altercation shows clearly what happened.
Rayshard apparently panicked over the prospect of being arrested on a DUI charge. He was on parole. He knew he was in for a lengthy jail sentence if he was taken in. His rap sheet consisted of cruelty to children, family violence-battery, theft, credit card fraud and more. The only mistake the Atlanta police officers made was they should have called for backup once they saw his rap sheet and knew he had a history with police. They did not know that Rayshard would try to fight them and try to shoot them with their own weapon, but they should have protected themselves against it based on his previous arrest record.
So, black men shot by police while resisting arrest or dying under drug-induced stress of proper restraint are the new darlings of the mainstream media. The problem with this narrative is that the media is ignoring the elephant in the room: far more black men are shot in Chicago and elsewhere by other black men rather than by cops.
Despite these statistics, we see wall to wall news coverage of images of black men and boys holding signs saying, “Am I next?”
So, the question is, how did 14% of our country’s population come to gain 100% of our attention? Normal Americans are bewildered as to why the mainstream nightly news runs nonstop coverage and stirs the pot of racial turmoil. It seems as if the news media and the Democrats are nostalgic for the bad old days when Democrat enforcers like Bull Connors hosed down, unleashed dogs and beat up on actually peaceful black civil rights marchers.
In a classic example of not being able to take yes for an answer, black leaders appear to be struggling against the fact that there is no evidence of systemic racism in the United States of America. The numbers aren’t there, and, by the way, discrimination is illegal.
Everyone is saying we need to have a conversation, but its become clear that unless you agree 100% with Black Lives Matter’s doctrine and agenda you are not allowed to voice your opinion. Anyone pointing out holes in the statistics or in the messaging is called a racist. News flash, calling the other side racist to shut down their opinion is not a conversation.
Being called a racist is a charge no one wants leveled against them in these days where First Amendment speech has morphed into political correctness. It’s the new reality in our culture, and normal Americans are growing sick of it.
Hopefully, that disgust will manifest itself in November as President Trump’s silent majority refuses to take a knee and presents the Democrats with another four years of in-your-face telling it like it is.
