Tired of it

June 3, 2020 |

I’m getting tired of people claiming that if you criticize the violent rioters and looters, you’re denigrating the value of black lives, the civil rights movement or the legitimate protests over the death of George Floyd. I’m seeing a lot of misplaced sympathy expressed for violent agitators who have hijacked the protests to stir up violence and racial hatred, and who are actually destroying black neighborhoods, homes and businesses, setting the protesters’ cause back, and harming the very people they falsely claim to be helping.

But since nobody wants to hear that message from a white male Republican, maybe it will make more of an impact coming from this lady. She’s an elderly African-American woman in New York City whose small shop is something she’s worked for years to build, only to come in and find the windows smashed, the stock looted and the fixtures demolished, leaving it to her to clean up their mess.

In the great tradition of no-nonsense grandmothers, she very appropriately reads these rioters the Riot Act:

“Tell me Black Lives Matter. You lied. You wanted to loot the store. You needed money? Get a job -- like I do. Stop stealing. This is a neighborhood. We’re trying to build it up, and you’re tearing it down.”

God bless this lady. Click the link to see the rest, and it’s a must-see. Rudy Giuliani is calling for Bill DeBlasio to be removed immediately as Mayor of New York. Can this lady take his place?

    If only we had a president with your common sense and values before Obama separated this country into left and right. I'm fearful that it is too late to ever get back to tge American Dream. It is all but gone except in the thoughts and prayers of those who believe in right and wrong and not just the grey areas of self and money. That is not what life us about.

    Born in Tylertown, MS in 1955. If you don't like the way this U.S.A. is run (managed) simply LEAVE!!! And find out how many places on this planet will: 1) Allow you to legally cross their borders without full disclosure. 2) Allow you to become a citizen. 3) Allow you thereafter to stand in public and peacefully be critical of the agenda of whomever is in charge at the moment.

    I agree. I’ve quit saying “all lives matter,” because according to many people,”if black lives don’t matter then no lives matter.” I totally agree but now you’re a racist if you don’t use the correct phrase. If my Hispanic and Native American friends want to accept this statement then go for it. This white male Republican is bowing out of this war or the words.
