DANIEL HOROWITZ: Atlanta shooting exposes the lie of BLM.
BLM: Blood libels matter.
They matter because when a dangerous lie criminalizing all police and victimizing every black criminal is allowed to metastasize, it turns America into a violent, lawless nation, harming the very people that movement purports to champion. The new rioting over what appears to be an act of self-defense on the part of an Atlanta cop demonstrates that this movement was never about justice for George Floyd.
The reason why the video showing the killing of George Floyd sparked so much outrage is precisely because it was so anomalous in police encounters. The video appears to show Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin kneeling, presumably with a lot of pressure, on Floyd’s neck for nine minutes, in a contained situation long after Floyd had been subdued.
Well, now we know that the outrage was not over that anomalous act. What the latest blood libel in Atlanta demonstrates is that those pushing the lie seek to criminalize basic police work and lionize career criminals who needlessly escalate arrests into violent altercations, often killing others.
If the goal is to increase lawlessness until people willingly give up their liberties in exchange for (illusory) safety, then it all makes sense.
NYC is bankrupt
families are snapping up houses in suburbs to get out before next round of virus and/or rioting / looting begins
5th Avenue remains boarded up as do most nice stores
