As I’ve written, the prosecution in the trial of Derek Chauvin has been so comically inept that some legal commentators are seriously wondering if they’re deliberately throwing the case. Which raises the question: why?
Picture the almost certain outcome if Chauvin is acquitted: the stormtroopers of the left will set loose a firestorm of violence. Whole cities will burn – again. I don’t think it’s too strong to argue that this is exactly what the Democrats want.
Authoritarians thrive on chaos. Unrest is the perfect excuse for dictatorship.
The American left have already plunged the nation into a year of staggering violence. Despite the media myth of “peaceful protest”, BLM unleashed a blood-dimmed tide of destruction across America.
Everyone finally now admits what I’ve been saying for months: that murders went up a record-breaking percentage in 2020. But most still don’t want to admit it had anything to do with Black Lives Matter. One way to begin analyzing what caused the homicide boom of 2020 is to measure when it ignited. So, later in this column I’ve graphed every firearm murder day by day for 2019 and 2020.
As for why murders shot up last year, we’re now a little closer to the answer. I’ve been hollering since last summer that the Racial Reckoning is unleashing a murder binge, so I’ve now got the complete day-by-day numbers.
As you can see, compared with 2019, 2020 was a bloody year, going all the way back to January and worsening during the first couple of months of the pandemic. Yet, the most extraordinary fact of 2020 is that for the seven-plus months from George Floyd’s death to the end of the year, the United States averaged 50.5 murders per day, up 41% from the 35.7 per day during the same long period in 2019. The consistency of the gap between 2020 and 2019 during the Racial Reckoning is striking.
Of course, that doesn’t say who is committing the murders, but we know (however much the left might howl about “racism”) that the overwhelming perpetrators of murder (like nearly every other category of crime) are black.
Just as the media-political elite lie about who commits gun homicides, they also lie about how they’re committed.
The Biden Administration is gearing up to crack down on rifles, seeing them as the white man’s weapon. In reality, according to the FBI’s statistics, rifles accounted for only 5 percent of all 2019 homicides in which a particular type of gun was identified, with shotguns adding 3 percent. Handguns, in contrast, were used in 92 percent of known gun homicides.
Of course, handguns are the main weapon with which blacks slaughter blacks in such vast numbers. White Democrats like Joe Biden aren’t terribly interested in reducing the number of blacks murdered by other blacks, especially if they’d have to admit that murder is largely a black problem in the U.S. You aren’t supposed to know this, but in 2019, 55.9 percent of known murder offenders were black. And blacks traditionally are responsible for a slightly larger share of gun murders than of total murders due to their cultural predilection toward shooting into crowds of partyers in the general direction of that guy who dissed them[…]
You are probably as sick as I am of hearing journalists proclaim this or that to be the New Normal. Let’s hope that fifty murders per day during the warmer months is not Anti-Racist America’s new normal.
Contrary to the BLM narrative, as expressed in nonsensical doggerel like The Hill We Climb, black Americans have quite the egos. Black Americans have higher self-esteem than any other ethnic group in America.
Black Lives Matter has succeeded not in making blacks safe, but in making them exuberant.Takimag
