Liberal progressive governors and mayors are bewildered by the “in plain sight” substantive. They muddled in the midst of what is empirically apparent. Like a deer frozen by the oncoming light, these politicians, despite the present rioting and looting crises, prefer to favor the lawless actions of rioters (they call them protesters). While begrudgingly and ineffectively deploying police forces to ostensibly protect life and property.
It is discernibly obvious, Blue State leadership cannot lead and refuse to follow.
In this age of perpetuating news coverage calculatedly or unintentionally, media of every determined perspective stoke the embers, and fuel the impending chaos. By repeatably imaging the destruction of yesterday and rerunning the knee to neck murder violent behavior is proportionately readdressed and regenerated.
The videoed killing of George Floyd evidenced in the reoccurring present exemplar the very worst of apathetic behavior. However, the act was wickedly foul because the torture evolving to the death of George could have been stopped. Instead of concentrating on i-phone filming for nine minutes this person could have responded to George’s plea of help: “I can’t breathe,” instead onlookers including the attending officers of the the law looked on instead of saving this man’s life.
The inability of onlookers to act they simply gawked and helplessly gaped for nine minutes. The struggling victim asks for relieve nonetheless the onlookers took no action. These observers would not step forward to save a life. This inability to act is (for me) startlingly shocking. It is as if the onlookers were seated in the Coliseum of 1st century Rome viewing the killing of gladiators, slaves, riffraff, and lions.
We all want to believe that human life is precious, but when opportunities emerge to validate that premise all too often, we fade and retrograde into our shell of wantoned indifference.
This year there is a presidential election. I do believe that Blue State’s inaction on the present craziness and the coronavirus lock down revolves around the political calculations of attaining a political advantage. I also think that if the Republicans are not victorious, the constitutional state of affairs will bend a knee to progressive socialism. If that possibility becomes a reality we better start teaching Mandarin and agree to submit to the interest of the collective.
