Triumph Of The Woke Mob Led By Two Doddering Old Fools, by David Stockman

The government is more to blame for the problems of blacks than racism. From David Stockman at via

Events of the last few days have made one thing crystal clear: The Democratic Party (and therefore the nation) is being led by two doddering old fools who should be domiciled in a rest home, not the Oval Office and the Speaker’s Chamber.

How that baleful reality coexists with Wall Street’s expectation of an awesome economic future and stock prices which never stop rising to the sky is one of the great enigmas of our times. Or maybe it’s just because $10 trillion of fiscal and monetary “stimulus” in the past year can turn the proverbial sow’s ear into a silk purse. For a time.

By now, of course, we expect idiocy from Sleepy Joe, especially on the economic front.

Accordingly, at his virtual global summit he will be reading-out from the White House teleprompter the demented agenda of the Climate Change Howlers. Therein he will promise to cut greenhouse gases by 50% by the end of this decade, which calamity we can also promise would cut America’s debt-entombed economy to its knees.

That comes after Tuesday’s White House contretemps when he first prayed for a guilty verdict in the Chauvin trial even as the jury was sitting in its deliberations, and then, afterwards, made the risible claim that this tragedy was the spawn of systemic racism.

In fact, Nanny State over-reach was the underlying cause of George Floyd’s arrest and unjust death—just as it is the source of most of America’s unfortunate violence between police and unarmed citizens, back, white and otherwise.

One response to “Triumph Of The Woke Mob Led By Two Doddering Old Fools, by David Stockman

  1. The author writes: “ Needless to say, the George Floyd case was not an aberration. During the recent past there were 38 such police killings of unarmed black citizens in 2015, and then 19, 21, 17 and 9 during 2016 through 2019, respectively. That’s 104 black lives lost to the ultimate abuse of police powers. Of course, the number should be zero police killings of unarmed citizens. There is no conceivable excuse for heavily armed cops—-usually working in pairs or groups—to cause the death of lone, unarmed civilians, regardless of race or anything else.”

    This could not be further from the truth. It’s a fallacy that keeps coming up but that people who believe this nonsense know little about. A person being “unarmed” does not mean that they are “not dangerous.” Plenty of police officers have been killed by unarmed people who have either taken the police officer’s weapon and killed them with it, or beaten them to death with their bare hands. Or the often larger assailant merely gets the officer in a chokehold and chokes them to death.

    As an example of this ridiculous thought process, let’s imagine that a 100-pound woman is at home by herself, when a 300-pound, very muscular, and very violent, assailant enters her residence and proceeds to do her harm. She luckily picks up a knife and stabs him to death. Has she now not killed an “unarmed” assailant?

    The vast majority of those African-Americans, and others, who were “unarmed” and killed by the police were killed because they were resisting arrest or otherwise fighting the police and trying to harm them. That’s the bottom line. So the whole unarmed thing needs to be put to rest.
