Do Black Lives Really Matter? That Depends ….

2020 June 9
by bc3b

Sunday, May 31 was the most violent day in 60 years in Chicago. Rioters terrorized the city, not only looting and burning stores but there were also 18 murders in 24 hours.

In a single day twice as many unarmed blacks were killed in Chicago as were killed by police in the entire United States in 2019. Yet, police brutality against blacks is the greatest problem blacks face today, according to Black Lives Matter and CNN. There’s never any mention of black-on-black murders.

These were innocent people: standing on their front porch, talking with friends, riding in a car or walking to a cell phone store to pay a bill.

So where is the outrage? Where is Black Lives Matter? Where are the guilt-ridden liberal suburban teens and 20-somethings signaling their virtue? Where is CNN? There is a simple answer: Black Lives Matter only when they can be used to promote a leftist political agenda.

A hardworking father killed just before 1 a.m.

A West Side high school student murdered two hours later.

A man killed amid South Side looting at a cellphone store at 12:30 p.m.

A college freshman who hoped to become a correctional officer, gunned down at 4:25 p.m. after getting into an argument in Englewood.

While Chicago was roiled by another day of protests and looting in the wake of George Floyd’s murder, 18 people were killed Sunday, May 31, making it the single most violent day in Chicago in six decades, according to the University of Chicago Crime Lab. The lab’s data doesn’t go back further than 1961.

From 7 p.m. Friday, May 29, through 11 p.m. Sunday, May 31, 25 people were killed in the city, with another 85 wounded by gunfire, according to data maintained by the Chicago Sun-Times.

In a city with an international reputation for crime — where 900 murders per year were common in the early 1990s — it was the most violent weekend in Chicago’s modern history, stretching police resources that were already thin because of protests and looting.

“We’ve never seen anything like it, at all,” said Max Kapustin, the senior research director at the crime lab. “ … I don’t even know how to put it into context. It’s beyond anything that we’ve ever seen before.”

The next highest murder total for a single day was on Aug. 4, 1991, when 13 people were killed in Chicago, according to the crime lab.

    Just to set up the framework.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paradox_of_tolerance
    The paradox of tolerance states that if a society is tolerant without limit, its ability to be tolerant is eventually seized or destroyed by the intolerant.

    Karl Popper described it as the seemingly paradoxical idea that, “In order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance.”

    I have begun a 12 month preparation for “whatever” is coming.
    – Defense (community and personal)
    – Food and other essentials (including water)…short & long term
    – Energy (home, vehicle, etc)
    – Communications
    – Finances (hard & soft assets)
    – Shelter (including if we need to hunker down with multiple family members)
    – ?? I’m adding every day

    I welcome suggestions 🙂

    I pray I am wrong…but by this time next year I want to be ready.

    P.s., suggestions for a .45 caliber semi-auto that is “easy” for a woman to rack & operate?

    I have always believed God knows more punchlines than Henny Youngman. So when I got up this morning and saw several blocks of Seattle are ‘occupied’. I mused, so the joke is on us Boomers. He is letting us see the ’60s all over again but from the perspective of our parents.

    It ain’t pretty. Then or now.

    Disclaimer: I don’t watch ‘Cops’, and haven’t sat through GWTW in decades. That said, it is extremely distressing that when the Deat Star of “Social Justice” hovers any corporate entity (in this case, Paramount Pictures) said entity IMMEDIATELY drops to its collective knees and grovels. The knee-jerk reaction is to kneel…I guess that makes sense to them.

    The Storm Troopers unleashed by this Cultural Revolution are intent on destroying our history. So intent, btw, that they vandalized a Civil War monument the other day in the name of “Justice!” The monument in question honored the BLACK soldiers of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry…the first Black regiment to fight in the Civil War. The reaction of the Storm Troopers: “Meh”

    I would suggest that some of these idiots read up on Mao’s ‘Cultural Revolution’, 1966-1976…and its aftermath. I would suggest that, but the useful-idiots wouldn’t do it anyway.

    If assumed true what are the consequences? Trump wins.

    Historically Americans in times of turmoil vote for the horse they are already riding. Madison, FDR, Truman come to mind as examples. Trump maybe brazen but he has also shown to be competent ironically.

    Cultural Revolution…Part II

    From 1966 until 1976 China underwent what they referred to as the “Cultural Revolution.

    Some 1.5 million people were killed during the Cultural Revolution, and millions of others suffered imprisonment, seizure of property, torture or general humiliation.

    Mao’s plan was to agitate the youth of China into a “religious” zeal (though, of course, actual religion was banned) and harness their energy and LACK of knowledge of history into sweeping everything away from the “Old” China.

    His plan worked. Young people in military uniforms and red armbands dragged their teachers and their neighbors into the streets and publicly beat and humiliated them in an attempt to eradicate the country of “traitors to the party”.

    Ancient temples were smashed and previously sacred relics destroyed in order to bring China into a new age free of “old ideas.”

    And then there were the “struggle sessions”.

    The people of China were urged to get rid of every bourgeoisie in their midst including scholars, traditionalists, or educators. People were accused by their neighbors of counter-revolutionary crimes and forced them to endure public humiliation or even death.

    Victims would be forced to wear massive bamboo hats with their crimes written on them and drape big signs around their necks with the names crossed out with a red X. Before a jeering crowd, they would be forced to confess to their bourgeoisie crimes. If not, they would be beaten, sometimes to death.

    GEE…DOES ANY OF THIS SEEM FAMILIAR? IF IT DOESN’T THEN YOU MUST JUST HAVE EMERGED FROM A 3 WEEK LONG COMA.

    Look at the pictures at the link, and simply substitute Antifa and BLM activists for those doing the destruction of China, and the humiliation of its citizens. Remember, NO actual crime needed to be proven…if fact it was rare for the Red Guards and other groups to even bother to try. You were ASSUMED guilty.

    Cultural Revolution Part II is well underway.

    US towns have had financial setbacks when bases were closed (e.g. K.I. Sawyer AFB in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula or Wurtsmith AFB in the northern part of the lower peninsula).

    Germany: “We hate Americans. We hate Trump. We won’t pay our share of NATO. We have 70 planes in our air force, half of which are inoperable. You can’t reduce US troops in Germany because it will hurt us financially.”

    From 42…..

    “I’m liking our chances if this turns into civil war. We cut off their soy supply lines and force an early surrender.”

    I’d pour salt on that wound. I’d back up the truck at the barricade and heave a side of beef freshly killed over. “Here eat this soy boys!” Best laugh I have had so far today. 🙂
