Rioters Injure 21 Policemen In St. Paul, by John Hinderaker.
Hundreds of Black Limes Matter rioters shut down Highway 94, a major interstate that connects Minneapolis and St. Paul, for several hours last night. The rioters bombarded police with chunks of concrete, pieces of rebar and other hard objects, injuring 21 police officers. One policeman suffered a broken vertebrae when a concrete block was dropped on his head from above. Around 100 rioters were arrested.
The left resorts to violence far too often, with a near-monopoly of violence in this US election:
When mass murderer Micah Johnson struck during a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, a stark line was drawn between the peaceful protesters — everyone except Johnson — and the murderer.
But it doesn’t take long for those lines to be blurred. Many of the hundreds of rioters who closed down Highway 94 were evidently willing to be murderers, as their concrete blocks and rebar could easily have killed one or more policemen.
In truth, on the Left there is not a sharp division between the violent and the non-violent, but rather a continuum that runs from demonstrators to protesters to rioters to looters to rock throwers to arsonists to killers. There is no such thing as a political Left without violence.
