For Fear of the Mob

For Fear of the Mob

Which mob? This mob:

A “Black Lives Matter” mural in Chicago was painted over earlier this week to read, “All Lives Matter,” leaving local activists and organizers fuming. …

If they cannot understand that all lives don’t matter until black lives matter, they did this out of hatred,” activist and mural organizer Cortlyn Kelly told ABC 7 news out of Chicago.

Arts Council Executive Director Camille Wilson White expressed her frustration with the incident regarding the mural and said seeing it “vandalized, defaced this way, it’s shameful.”

The village is a place of inclusion and to have someone come and destroy someone else’s work is disrespectful and disgusting,” said local resident Yolanda Taylor.

And this mob, at the US WestPoint military academy!

This policy statement was apparently drafted by a group of recent Academy graduates (classes of 2018 and 2019). … They are the cream of the crop of the Army’s future leaders, the guys and gals that will become generals one day and will be expected to lead America’s sons and daughters in combat. …

The effect of these policy proposals is to cede control of the Academy’s entire curriculum from the ground up to black cadets in the name of Anti-Racism. It is replete with so-called ‘examples’ of racism at the Academy, but most fall apart on close inspection. …

It is filled with buzzwords about ‘heteronormativity’, ‘Protestants’, ‘imperialism’, ‘Christianity,’ ‘white supremacy’, ‘Black bodies,’ and the like. I doubt that the writers of this document know anything at all about any of these things, but of course that will not abate their righteousness in pursuit of their holy cause. …

We have not been tested against a real enemy in many generations. When we are, leaders like this will not be able to stand in the field of battle. You have been warned.

No self awareness or perspective. They are in the grip of a collective madness.
