You all remember "Hands Up, Don't Shoot", the demonstrable lie told after the justifiable shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. Subsequent autopsy reports put the lie to that narrative, yet the truth didn't stop the lie from going viral. And, of course, the BLM folks have capitalized on that lie.
It seems that the narrative coming out of Milwaukee is quite different. We start by hearing a man on the street, when asked why they were rioting, telling a reporter 'Rich got all this money and ain't tryin' give none'... Interesting. This isn't about social justice, this is about money, plain and simple. I'm glad he cleared that up for us.
But then, we get to hear from the sister of the deceased career criminal who pointed a gun at a police officer.
“Burning down sh*t ain’t gonna help nothin’,” yells Sherelle Smith.You need your weave? Seriously?
“You’re burnin’ down sh*t we need in our community.”
“Take that sh*t to the suburbs. Burn that sh*t down!” she demands.
“We need our sh*t! We need our weave! I don’t wear it, but we need it!”
That should become the new rallying cry of the Social Justice Warriors. We Need Our Weave! It seems to me that the protesters are finally telling the truth, and that all they really want is our money. This whole scenario is a result, as I highlighted yesterday, of failed liberal urban policies that has given us an underclass with no jobs, no education, no self-sufficiency, and no hope.
That's a damned shame.
