Only 1 person was killed in the January 6 riot

Published

on

Ashli Babbitt, the slain unarmed white demonstrator on January 6, was murdered without even a verbal warning by a capitol security officer, special agent. A police shooting of an unarmed protestor.
No public outrage? She was a 14-year military veteran whose worst offense that day was trespassing and not a lifelong criminal like George Floyd. No investigation? Who read her Miranda rights or warned her, “Stop or I’ll shoot!”?
Crickets from the media!

Where’s the justice for Ashli? Did her white skin make her fair game? She wasn’t armed nor even wielding a stick or stone. She wasn’t yelling nor angry in appearance. She was following the urging of others to enter the opening in the door. If anyone deserves public sympathy for being an innocent participant it would have to be her. But no, she has no marchers, sign makers, slogan writers, nor righteously outraged champions.

Set the record straight

The riots on January 6 were not Trump inspired nor was it a “murderous mob.”
They were led by paid instigators who had been organized, supplied, supported and unleashed so as to prejudice the country against Trump. And it worked. Damn shame, but it did. Now the mainstream media and leftist politicians including our president are telling us repeatedly that this was the “worst domestic terror since the Civil War,” notable omission of 9-11. They want you to think that Jan. 6 was the all-time low of conservative politics. But it wasn’t conservatives who did the harm. Rioters did harm, but they were mercenaries, not conservative demonstrators.

10,600 to 1, and the 1 wins? 

10,600 violent protests in 2020 but only January 6 is complained about! Two people died in connection with the Capitol riot. One was the unarmed white woman murdered by the Capitol security officer. The other was a police officer who died from unrelated causes two days later. But the media lied and said he was mortally injured by rioters. Not true. In 2020-21 there have been murders, beatings of innocents, looting, destruction, vandalism, attacks on police, fires, violent takeovers of cities, invasion of quiet neighborhoods in the name of race and yet no outrage in the leftist media or politicians. What kind of people are OK with releasing violent criminals from jail, bailing them out (Kamala Harris did this), and unleashing domestic terror everywhere? You’ve got to be a special kind of low life to not be outraged by that. So, it’s not killing and hatred and destruction they oppose, instead it is what, Trumpism? Is there such a thing? .

Many people think the police (even the black cops) are out to get blacks 

In 2020 there were 37 unarmed white people killed and 26 unarmed blacks killed by police in the USA. Surprised the number is so small? Most people are. In an early May 2021 poll of 2,000 likely voters; Biden voters were much less likely to estimate the correct quantity of police killings. Only 25% of them estimated a low number. Many thought it was in the hundreds or thousands. Among Trump voters the accuracy was only around 40%. But if you listen to mainstream media you’d have to believe that police killings occur every day and mostly among blacks. Not True!

Criminals George Floyd and a few others died at the hands of police but where’s the outrage over the 37 whites killed by police, compared to 26 blacks killed by police last year? It is not there. How come when 8 people were killed by a deranged white murderer claiming “sex addiction” only 6 of them were mourned because they were Asian. And this sparked huge protests and bills in Congress about Asian hate crimes. What about the 2 other victims? I suppose he didn’t “hate” them? Worse yet, where’s the outrage over the hundreds of blacks killed annually by other blacks?

Black people comprise about 13% of the US population and yet they commit 52% of the murders. Granted this is being done by the worst among them, just as white crime is done by the worst whites. If you were in charge of reducing violent crime what would you do? Wouldn’t you focus on the bad actors among the 13%?

I’m sick of the black racists accusing police and others of “systemic racism”, “white supremacy” and a lack of fairness! Let’s stop giving air time or press coverage to hate mongers like Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi, AOC and her sycophants known as the Squad. Angry Tlaib, Pressley, Omar, Beto O’Rourke and whoever else follows this hate culture needs to be ignored and shamed for their propaganda crimes and incitement of violence. Words matter and their words have incited riots, real riots with guns, Molotov cocktail bombs, looting and murders.

This isn’t about race. This is about integrity.

Black skin doesn’t make you good or bad, your culture and choices do. White skin doesn’t make you a racist, your culture and choices do. Your attitude is a choice. Once you are an adult you are responsible for your attitude as well as your actions, no matter what color skin you wear. You can claim prejudice, disenfranchisement, marginalization, discrimination, lack of privilege, poverty, domestic abuse, bullies, crime or all of the above as the reason for your actions, but…YOU are still responsible. You choose whether to break the pattern. You choose to either become bitter or  better.

Blacks, Asians, Whites, Latinos and all races have risen above the many limits described above. They have ascended to the highest positions in government, business, media, entertainment, sports, education, literature, science and art. Race doesn’t determine your achievement. It only determines your starting point. Same as physical limitations, if you are short, basketball isn’t your best sport. If you are missing some limbs then wrestling or gymnastics might not be on the table. If you are blind, deaf, female and abandoned as Helen Keller was, that’s your starting point. Not your destiny.

I’m so sick of racial politics! The human race is the only noteworthy one. Let the racism go. Stop measuring it, reporting on it, and writing about it. Write about people not labels or categories.

Ashli Babbitt died without deserving to be shot. The special agent may have acted out of fear rather than anger. I don’t know but I do know that the color of their skin doesn’t matter.

Cancel-free: The Charmed Lives of Offensive Democrats

The American Left is teaming with hypocritical womanizers, homophobes, and anti-white racists, all of whom receive a free pass

Published

on

Pretend that you’re the governor of some state, perhaps out in the Midwest. Seven different women have come forward accusing you of sexually harassing or molesting them. Suppose, as well, that you happen to be a Republican.

Cuomo Nation

As successful as you might have been in holding on to your post for the first six accusations, how long would you last after the seventh woman has come forward?

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: EXCLUSIVE: Arizona Senator Gives Audit Update

Any level headed person would conclude that you wouldn’t be able to hang on for long. The press would hammer you every day. People on your staff would rebel. Those who exert any type of influence in your state’s legislative body would go on the warpath, and insist that you resign immediately.

You’d have significant trouble working with elected officials, heads of agencies and commissions, and your own staff. CNN and MSNBC would feature you as a nightly topic. Yet, Andrew Cuomo can hang on for months, and possibly even for the duration of his elected term. Why? He is a Democrat.

The Joy of Being Joy Reid

Suppose that you become a nightly news anchor for a major TV network. A short time thereafter, it is revealed that you’ve made highly questionable, homophobic, even vicious statements and blog posts within the past decade. At your network, how quickly would you be asked to resign? A day? A week?

If you’re able to retain your post, what would your relationship be with your existing staff, some of whom represent the type of people that you so ungraciously disparaged in your posts? What would your relationship be with the studio and broadcast executives? What about your audience? Would they  seek your removal?

Suppose, however, that your name is Joy Reid. You are a black woman in America, and have made statements in your blog, “The Reid Report” where you have openly “mocked public figures for their perceived femininity and gayness.” Worse, you have sought to expose political opponents whom you believed to be homosexual.

Cancel-Free and Lovin’ It

Many months pass and the din dies down. While your reputation has been tarnished, the Public Broadcasting System, de facto, has granted that you will continue on in your post. No real harm, right? After all, it’s been 10 years, and presumably you’re a better person now, eh? Yet, others at other stations, who made less derogatory comments, far more that ten years ago, have been terminated.

As a ‘woman of color’ in America, a Democrat, a liberal, a progressive, and one who supports the Left, you are immune from being dislodged from your position. You would have to murder somebody, live, on air, before your position would be in jeopardy. Anything that has occurred off of the air will be downplayed.

Soon, your transgression will be swept under the rug. Your deed will never completely disappear, because the Internet is eternal. However, the impact and  ramifications of your transgression can be reduced to the bare minimum.

A Caucasian-hating Asian

Your big day arrives: you land a prime position at the New York Times, “the newspaper of record.” The prestige that goes along with your role is enormous. You are on the advisory committee for the editorial opinion page: You decide what makes it into print and what does not, and you get to shape what is printed.

Before you officially begin, serious allegations about you have surfaced. You’ve made inflammatory statements, insulting older white Caucasians. You have said, verbatim, “Oh man it’s kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men.”

You have tweeted, “Dumb*ss f*cking white people marking up the internet with their opinions like dogs p-ssing on fire hydrants” and, “White people have stopped breeding. You’ll all go extinct soon. This was my plan all along.”

How long would it take your employer to fire you, even before your first day? Your name, however, is Sarah Jeong. You are an Asian-American, part of a protected class, a Democrat, and a progressive who is highly supportive of Leftist causes. Despite all that is known about your past, the Times embraces you.

State of Disgrace

After a mercifully short stay, deputy editor Kate Kingsbury said, “Sarah decided to leave the editorial board in August. But we’re glad to still have her journalism and insights around technology in our pages through her work as a contributor.”

This is the state of the American Left today, an ideology teaming with hypocritical womanizers, homophobes, and anti-white racists. As if in The Twilight Zone, these people receive a free pass: They are Democrats, a special class and part of the upper tier in our two-tier level of justice and “social” justice.
