Should We Just Let It Burn? by Kurt Schlichter

Liberals have turned many of the cities they have run for decades into hell holes. People who detest the liberals and their cities and don’t live in them can’t stop the from burning, even if they wanted to. From Kurt Schlichter at theburningplatform.com:

Should We Just Let It Burn?

My town’s not getting burned down because the rich coastal liberals with “Hate Has No Home Here” signs on their exquisitely landscaped front yards will never put up with that nonsense here in Shangri-Lib. In a very real way, the chaos that the liberals are creating by handcuffing other people’s cops – do you think my cops will ever get the order to stand down? – is not my problem. And, unless you are still living in some Democrat hellhole, it’s probably not your problem either.

So, why again when some big blue city that hasn’t had a Republican mayor since phrenology was the pseudo-science of the day – as quackery goes, head bump interpretation is way less damaging than weather paranoia and flu panic – suffers self-induced ritualized convulsions upon the death of yet another felon should the rest of us care?

But we will care, at least for now, because we are nice people and we think all Americans should live in something like peace and prosperity. It’s hard to get through our heads that not all of our countrymen feel that way. The chaos, violence, and misery that some Americans exist in is actually their choice. It’s a choice that liberals make, and they can make that choice because blue city voters inexplicably elect liberals who choose chaos.

Another “mob justice” #fail, by Simon Black

Burn down a Wendy’s just because. From Simon Black at sovereignman.com:

You probably know the story already: on Friday night, an intoxicated man in Atlanta got behind the wheel of a vehicle and drove to a local Wendy’s fast food restaurant.

When he arrived, he passed out while still in the driver’s seat of his vehicle… which also happened to be smack dab in the middle of the Wendy’s drive-thru lane, so he was blocking the other customers.

Wendy’s staff called the police… which seemed sensible enough. And when the police arrived, the situation remained polite and calm.

The man failed voluntarily agreed to take a breathalyzer test, and when his blood-alcohol content was found to be above the legal limit, the police attempted to arrest him.

You know the rest of the story– the man resisted arrest, a fight broke out, he took one of the police officer’s stun guns and fired it at the officers while running away, and then he was shot. He died shortly after.

So what does the mob do? They torched the Wendy’s.

This is total madness. What possible wrongdoing is Wendy’s guilty of? Were they supposed let a drunk driver obstruct their drive-thru and NOT call the police?

Minneapolis Manufacturing Company Torched In Riots To Leave City, by Tyler Durden

A company whose factory burned down while firefighters watched has decided that Minneapolis doesn’t value its business. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

A Minneapolis manufacturing company will be relocating after law enforcement and firefighters were unable to prevent rioters from setting fire to the building, according to the owner of 7-Sigma Inc., Kris Wyrobek.

“They just don’t care about my business,” said Wyrobek, who’s been operating in south Minneapolis since 1987 according to the StarTribune. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”

The move will cost the city about 50 jobs.

Wyrobek said the plant, which usually operates until 11 p.m., shut down about four hours early on the first night of the riots because he wanted to keep his workers out of harm’s way. He said a production supervisor and a maintenance worker who live in the neighborhood became alarmed when fire broke out at the $30 million Midtown Corner affordable housing apartment complex that was under construction next door.

The fire engine was just sitting there,” Wyrobek said, “but they wouldn’t do anything.” –StarTribune

Gov. Tim Walz, who called the city’s response to the riots an “abject failure,” ordered the National Guard into Minneapolis to restore order following a request by Mayor Jacob Frey – who admitted he’s broken.
