Trump’s Answer to Black-on-Cop Murder
Wouldn’t it be pretty to think all we had to do to stop black people from killing cops was put a few leaders of Black Lives Matter in jail?
That is what Donald Trump recently told Bill O’Reilly: “Everybody is free to say what you want to say up to a point," Trump said. "But when you are calling death to police and to kill the police, essentially -- which is what they said -- that's a real problem, Bill. That's a real big problem.”
True enough. But Black Lives Matter is the tail, not the dog.
The dog is the towering level of black violence, hostility and criminality that is so wildly out of proportion. And puts cops in conflict with black people so often.
And how reporters and public officials ignore, deny, condone, excuse, encourage and even lie about it.
The talking heads just cannot talk plainly about it.
Instead we get gobbledygook about criminal justice reform and better police community relations. Next time you hear that, just remember what that really means: Black criminals do not like getting caught.
And neither do their enablers in newsrooms and city halls.
The angry young gay black women who started BLM became famous by hijacking a Bernie Sanders rally in Seattle, then booing Martin O’Malley off a stage and later making him cower in fear when they forced him to apologize for saying All Lives Matter.
But the enormous amount of harassment, defiance, violence, and murder directed at cops from black people hardly started with them -- as I documented it in that scintillating bestseller Don’t Make the Black Kids Angry and on my YouTube channel.
And I am far from the only one.
Ask any cop: they will tell you black-on-cop hostility been around as long as they have been on the force. As long as black crime and violence have been wildly out of proportion.
And it is only getting worse.
In Chicago, every routine stop in a black neighborhood is accompanied by black mobs, often chanting “CCK, CCK:” Chicago Cop Killer. Many point their index fingers at the cops, as if shooting a gun.
And every stop is greeted with the accusation: You are only doing this because I am black.
Around the rest of the country, a cop meeting a black person is much more likely to hear “Fuck The Police” than “Hello Officer.”
And it is not just the cops.
Racial resentment and hostility against white people have been an institution in this country for at least 40 years.
Every affirmative action program -- in Europe they call it positive discrimination -- has two sides: Give black people special preferences for jobs, schools, contracts… you name it.
But the other side, the darker side, is a story of how black people are relentless victims of relentless white racism -- all the time, everywhere, that explains everything.
This fairy tale of white racism has saturated every nook and cranny of our public and private lives and done enormous damage. And now it is coming home to roost in the form of black-on-white hostility that is mainstream and easy to find.
In schools, children learn about evil white people early on. New teachers learn if they want to be successful with black students, they must have a “Courageous Conversation” that begins with the white teacher admitting that white racism is responsible for the enormous gap between white and black students in performance and discipline.
It is the official policy of the government of the United States of America that gap is the result of one thing and one thing only: white racism.
The Departments of Justice and Education send teams of bureaucrats to school districts all over the country to enforce it.
At the EPA, they talk about “environmental racism”.
At the Defense Department, students at the military academies are taught that white privilege is hurting our military preparedness.
At the FCC, hundreds of employees make sure that TV and radio stations are hiring and telling the right stories about black people in proper amounts -- or risk losing their licenses.
This is a very long list and it has been going on for a very long time. That is Trump’s challenge: Root out the institutional black-on-white racial hostility that is now part of the DNA of so many people and places.
Hostility that is causing so much black-on-white violence, so much black-on-cop defiance, and now murder.
Wouldn’t it be pretty to think Trump is up for the task?
