Zimmerman’s arrest marked the day that liberalism died, and progressivism rose from the ashes, a dark turn in leftist history that no one seems to have noticed.Read more here.
The results have been catastrophic. In January 2009, 79 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks held a favorable view of race relations in America. By July 2013, following the Zimmerman trial, those figures had fallen to 52 percent among whites and 38 percent among blacks. They have never recovered. As Gallup notes, “Since 2013, Americans’ overall positive perceptions on race have cooled, and perceptions among blacks have soured considerably.” Propaganda works.
...Getting neither satisfaction nor any corrective truth from President Barack “If I had a son” Obama, militants transformed their anger into action. The most radical of these activists formed Black Lives Matter (BLM), a group whose website traces its founding “to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman.”
In August 2014, a year and a month after Zimmerman’s acquittal, protesters chanting “black lives matter” torched the St. Louis suburb of Ferguson and left much of it in ruins. Ferguson represented the second major racial conflagration in two years rooted in a hoax, this time, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” The media chose not to notice.
Nationwide, but especially in cities where rioting followed lethal police–citizen encounters, cops instinctively began to pull back from actively policing black neighborhoods. Sensing opportunity, criminals moved into the void.
...The murder rate began a steady decline once Barack Obama left office, but God knows what the final body count will be when the “Minneapolis effect” runs its course. Once again, the great majority of the dead will be black. This time, God willing, the young African Americans who survive may demand real answers as to why their brethren had to die.
