Marmel: Peaceful Protesters Didn’t Want This; People Who Wanted To Shut Them Down Did
Sane, rational people of all political persuasions don’t want to see police killed. But it serves a political purpose for those who hate the left.
[su_thin_right_skyscraper_ad]There are people who have been waiting for this. Not necessarily the death of cops, but that one event that allows them to paint all protesters as anti-police, anti-american.
That one terrible event that allows them to make it more than it is, and take shots at their political opponents.
There is a national frustration that there are two standards: Whether it’s a “Black v. White” standard or a “Conservative v. Liberal” standard…
…if connections can be made to tarnish the underdog, the powerless, or the left… that happens immediately, loudly, by players of the highest level.
And if connections can be made to tarnish the establishment, the entitled or the right well… that’s blown off as conspiracy theory.
Cliven Bundy should be in jail. Had the world gone crazy on him when two people on his ranch peeled off and killed two cops… had there been a national conversation and reaction to domestic terrorism or sovereign citizens and media fueling this kind of hatred by elevating them to “patriot” or “hero,”… I’d be writing differently about this moment.
But no, those same types lined the rooftops in Ferguson, this time not to protect protesters but to protect business. They went from training guns on feds to training guns on protesters. People just decided to point their guns at other people. And again, there were those that made them heroes. But mostly, silence.
