cui bono?

The Latin phrase “cui bono?” refers to a line of inquiry into a crime, literally: “Who benefits?”

It is very trendy right now to pretend that this country has not moved past the conditions of racial inequality that truly did exist in this country in the 1960s…especially in the South. I pick that starting point because that is when Martin Luther King shook the conscience the country, and changes did start to happen. Painfully slow in many cases…but changes nonetheless.

But who benefits from pretending we are stuck in 1965?

Obviously those who have a vested interest in keeping Americans divided and at each other’s throats over the subject of race.

I believe it is disingenuous to claim that the United States has not moved beyond those days, when we so obviously have. Are things “perfect”? No. Will they ever be? Probably not. Those claiming we have NOT moved beyond where we were 50 years ago have a sick purpose in spewing that falsehood…they want POWER. And a lot of useful-idiots are listening to them and willing to grant them that POWER.  And the Democrat Party has a vested interest in convincing America we are still in 1965…it maintains their urban “plantations”.

The VERY FEW legitimate protests over the murder (whether 2nd or 3rd degree) of George Floyd were quickly taken over by thugs intent on mayhem, arson, assault and looting. Then AntiFa and other anarchist groups, and Agent provocateurs with a keen interest in destroying this country showed up and any thoughts of meaningful protests that might garner support for change were swamped by the violence. I was raised to be “color-blind”, and have tried to live my life that way. Yet for the last 10-15 years there has been an increased focus on “color”. Especially the color “White”. Just as Blacks were wrongfully accused of all manner of things because of their skin color, now Whites are being accused of all manner of things because of theirs. Doesn’t sound helpful, does it? The mayor of Seattle did just that yesterday: “I want to acknowledge that much of the violence and destruction, both here in Seattle and across the country, has been instigated and perpetuated by white men, that have experienced the height of privilege and are co-opting peaceful demonstrations.” Ridiculous, of course.

So who benefits from tearing down the fabric of America, and separating out groups by their color, sex or religion?

Obviously those who want to “fundamentally transform” America into some twisted new reality…for the “greater good”, or course.

I did not vote for Barack Obama. But even I had some hope that after he was elected he would use his election as the first Black President to try and heal America’s historical wounds. Then just a few months after his election he immediately accused the Cambridge police of “acting stupidly” when they arrested Professor Henry Gates, and playing the race-card in the process. Admitting he didn’t know ANY of the FACTS, Obama continued to play the race-card on this incident for days. When it finally came out that Gates’ story was part fabrication and part elaboration, Obama “apologized”…and organized his “Beer Summit”. For 8 years Obama and Holder (just to name two) continued to play their race-cards at every opportunity. Celebrities and the entire Democrat Party started playing race-cards as well.

And regular folks started playing race-cards to shut down debate/discussion they were unprepared for. Case in point: I was working for VERY Left-wing company in the Silicon Valley when Obama was elected, and knew enough to NEVER talk politics at work. Those on the Left did so freely, of course. One day as people were settling in for a meeting, a co-worker asked me what I thought about ObamaCare, which had just been announced. I said: “I’m not in favor or Socialized/Government Healthcare”. He looked at me and said: “Wow, I never knew you were a Racist!” I thought he was joking for a millisecond, but then realized he was serious. I said: “How does not being in favor of Socialized Medicine make me a Racist?” He smugly stated: “Because the only reason people are opposing it is that Obama is Black!” We rarely spoke over the next two years except on strictly technical subjects…and he wasn’t the only one to use the “To disagree with Obama is to be a RACIST!” argument.

So who benefits from the playing of “Race-Cards”, “Gender-Cards” and a dozen other “Aggrieved party-Cards”?? Those who seek shut down any real discussion/debate by labeling those who disagree as one or more horrible pejorative terms.  People are easier to rule when they’re not allowed to speak.

The riots across America are designed to benefit the Democrat/media/Leftist cabal…all the same folks, of course.  The clock is ticking.

    Well now, I be an enterprising State AG looking to move on up…..

    …. I would be looking into AntiFa big time. Since it has been declared a terrorist organization I would be free to unbundle some of the niceties of civil rights like snooping into their bank accounts and cell messages. Those bundles of bricks did not arrive on a unicorn. Here in Texas Acme brick is the big producer of brick. Most of them also stamp their makers mark on them. A deep dive into every invoice not headed to a construction site would be my first inquiry.

    Once I had a list of names a deep dive into their accounts are in order. Yes even bitcoin, for if you can find the receiving transaction you can see the whole ledger since the coin was created. BTC are only private if you keep them that way. I would follow that food chain till it was exhausted. Each in turn opening a grand jury investigation. Eventually it will lead thru some big name NGOs and George Soros.

    JR –

    Gotta release this rapist/murder who might catch coronavirus in prison. It also opens space for this criminal who was the 11th person at mass Sunday.

    Bricks?! Bring on the magic dust! — — Imagine what the Boffins have available now.

    You let the perps pick up the bricks, and about 30min later sweep them all up Solyent Green style. Anybody with magic dust on them handled a brick. Book’em Dano.

    Uh, Joe, in any space under 20′ a person can throw a knife faster than your reflexes permit the LEO to get the gun on target. Std police training.

    Sorry Ronnie — — Trump just topped my list as the greatest POTUS ever. When you’re the top dog its good to remind the lower dogs where they are in the pecking order.

    Its damn stick-it-up-your-ass glory to see Trump walk past the AntiFa pussies. (Not that I expect any of those preps would get within 10′ before they would be dropped by a sniper.) But we ought to send the Director of Security a new bottle of antacid, he probably choked down the whole thing in one go. 🙂

    Did this already get posted? Too funny!

    NBA journalist says “burn it all down!!!” until they come to the gated community next to his … and then start banging on his gate.

    It’s coming to my city. The path of the march is not being shown, just the endpoints. Maybe they’ll block traffic on a main street? Or maybe they’ll march through neighborhoods to put fear into the ‘burbs.

    No organization is claiming ownership of the march. It starts at 5pm so lots of chances for it to go into darkness … then change character.
    We’ll see…

    #15 No need to “Socialist Distance” at the riot, er protest. It’s all bunk. Absolutely ZERO scientific data that suggests it helps much at all:
