Some things in politics are so predictable.
Ever since George Floyd acquired the status of Sainthood last summer, a significant portion of Americans embarked on a blood libel campaign of epic proportions against the white population.
The hysteria was so pronounced, that looney concepts such as “defund the police” became an accepted part of political discourse. A sober society would laugh such proposals out of the venue. Alas, we no longer live in a sane country.
Instead, rabid mobs and constant anti-law enforcement barrages from the regime media prompted significant numbers of cops in urban centers across America to leave their work [Nearly 200 Officers Apply to Leave Minneapolis Police Force, by Kyle Morris, Breitbart News, July 21, 2020; Across America, cops are quitting. Here’s why that’s bad for public safety, by Charles Fain Lehman, the Philadelphia Inquirer, November 13, 2020].
Unsurprisingly, homicides have gone up. It’s almost as if an environment that makes it difficult for law enforcement to do their jobs creates toxic social outcomes….
According to a report from The Hill earlier this month [Cities got deadlier in 2020: What's behind the spike in homicides?, by Rafael A. Mangual, April 5, 2021], north of 20,000 criminal homicides took place in 2020. The Hill report provided a grim overview of the homicide frenzy sweeping across the nation:
Zooming out a bit, this wave of violence is just one aspect of American social decay. I haven’t even mentioned immigration.
Should the radical Left see its agenda through, we’ll have defunded police and full-blown open borders. As American cities start looking more like failed statelets, power vacuums will invariably emerge. Last summer, we received an appetizer from the multicultural dish of social disarray when the Latin Kings street gang took charge of policing their neighborhoods in Chicago [Cicero residents accuse police department of letting gangs roam during looting by Manny Ramos, Chicago Sun Times, June 2, 2020].
With the U.S. accelerating into Banana Republic status, criminal organizations like the Latin Kings will quickly pounce on any chance to fill a power vacuum and start gobbling up neighborhoods Americans are no longer willing to defend.
Imbibing the cocktail of multiculturalism comes with nasty side effects. And one of those will likely be the veritable disintegration of public order.
Will anyone bother to take a stand against this insanity?
