How dark is this country about to get?
“Authorities in St. Louis executed a search warrant Friday evening at the home of Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the couple who made headlines last month when they took up arms to defend their home from protesters.
During the search, police seized the rifle that Mark McCloskey was shown holding during the June 28 incident, KSDK-TV of St. Louis reported, citing information from a source.
The couple claimed the pistol that Patricia McCloskey held during the June confrontation was already in the possession of their attorney, the station reported. …”
“(Reuters) – Police in St. Louis, Missouri, searched the mansion of the couple who brandished guns at protesters marching outside their home last month in widely seen videos, local media reported.
The police arrived on Friday evening with a search warrant and seized the rifle wielded by Mark McCloskey during the June 28 incident, the KMOV news channel in St. Louis said. …”
In this country …
- A violent leftwing mob can rampage through St. Louis, loot and destroy businesses with impunity and kill retired black police officers without blemishing the image of the so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement.
- For the mainstream media, it is not “a story about race in America” worth talking about when this mob kills people, which has happened several times now in St. Louis, Seattle and Atlanta. There have been other deaths and shootings since George Floyd died on May 25th.
- In St. Louis, the mob can engage in all this violence and vandalism and not be charged for committing serious violent crimes.
- The mob can storm private residences and threaten to kill people in their homes and destroy their property, but when the homeowner calls the police they are not dispatched to protect his property because of his race and politics.
- Instead, a search warrant is issued by local officials and the police are sent to disarm the homeowner whose life was threatened by the mob.
This is insane.
Why is this happening in our country?
Why are police departments suddenly being defunded or abolished? Why are violent leftwing mobs toppling monuments? Why is the law being brazenly selectively enforced now? Why are all these people being cancelled by the mob and losing their jobs at such a dizzying pace? These are all symptoms of the triumph of Social Justice ideology among our left-leaning political class.
It is happening for the same reason that Central Park Karen is being prosecuted in New York City and the couple in Martinez, CA were charged with a hate crime for painting over a Black Lives Matter mural and San Francisco is mulling the CAREN Act to check the privilege of White women who call 9/11 to report crimes committed by black people. California also recently voted for some mysterious reason to change its state constitution to embrace racial discrimination.
The answer is that everything from “equality” to “justice” to “racism” to “rights” is being redefined to permit this. It turns out that equality doesn’t mean everyone should be treated equally under the law anymore. Instead, it is necessary to treat people differently and judge them on the basis of their race and political beliefs. Justice also doesn’t mean equal justice. It now means treating people differently on the basis of race and politics. Racism also doesn’t mean intentional acts of discrimination or beliefs and values held by individuals. It now means complicity in “systemic racism” and is defined by whiteness.
Seen from the perspective of woke supremacy, Mark McCloskey is a White man with a gun defending his home which is the embodiment of white supremacy. The Martinez couple are White people painting over a Black Lives Matter mural. Central Park Karen is a White woman who called the cops on a black people. In a reversal of the Dred Scott decision, White people are now “regarded as beings of an inferior order” in this country with “no rights which the [woke mob] was bound to respect.”
These people should all confess their racism, apologize and repent for their white innocence and promise to “do better” by adopting a lifelong commitment to practicing the cult of anti-racism which means to “constantly reflect upon the ways in which they, and others, support, or are complicit in, “whiteness,” “anti-blackness,” “racism,” and “white supremacy,” as these terms are understood from within the context of critical race Theory and critical whiteness studies. It then expects antiracists to subscribe to social activism which allegedly minimizes its impacts, including—as DiAngelo has put it regarding herself—through the concerted attempt to “be less white” (see also, problematize).”
If you protest that you are not actually a “racist” or “white supremacist,” well, that is where you are wrong. There is no middle ground called “non-racist” between racists (i.e., White people) and anti-racists (i.e., woke supremacists.) There is no room anymore for freedom or equality or justice or rights or the rule of law or property rights or colorblindness as you understand the world. There is “moral clarity” now. We don’t have time for any of that stuff anymore. The situation is that urgent.
In addition to all the monuments, the racial justice movement is only asking you to give up your gun, your wealth, your comfort, your mansion, your rights and liberties, the protection of the law and police from the mob, your individualism and objectivity, your white privilege, white comfort, white innocence, white complicity, your white entitlement – all being manifestation of your evil whiteness and systemic racism – as well as the expectation of passing any of these things to your children.
What if you compelled by your beliefs to resist these demands? Sorry, this only proves you are a racist and white supremacist and is a manifestation of White Fragility.
Yes, it can be hard to swallow.
