Kunstler: Guess What — It’s a Hustle

Public Policy

Of course, George Floyd didn’t deserve to die with a cop’s knee on his neck and his face mashed into the pavement, but after yesterday’s first of what will be several funerals for the now revered former armed robber and convict, you’d think he was the second coming (and going) of George Washington. Uh, check that… Washington was a slave-owner and, by definition, a racist. Make that Julius Caesar — based on the way that the Rev. Al Sharpton was bellowing at funeral No.1 Thursday in Minneapolis. Say, what? Julius Caesar owned slaves too? How about Abe Lincoln then? Naw, just another white man? And a secret racist (so they say).

Racist, racist racist! America is racist! Racism is systemic! Racism flows in the hallowed blood of the American system, going back all the way to 1619! All white people are racist. Get down on your bellies and crawl like a snake and beg forgiveness for your natural-born, inalienable racism! Anyway, that’s reality according to The New York Times, America’s premier journal of racism studies.

To prove that America is hopelessly racist, the nation has been treated to, what — ? — seven, or is it now eight nights of looting and burning by young black people acting out every racist stereotype from the Ku Klux Klan official manual of racism. The rest of the news media bent over backwards to avoid deploring the mayhem in the streets, rather, to invert the very looting, burning, and rioting as proof positive that America is racist to the bone. Look what you made us do! Steal sneakers and Rolex watches! Shoot cops, including an old retired black cop (uh, my bad) and run over several more cops with cars! Destroy businesses large and small that have been shut down for three months by corona virus to make sure they won’t ever dare to resume their racist trade in things that white people like!

Has anyone detected a hustle in the past week’s dire proceedings? Well, how would you define a hustle? How about: an attempt to gain advantage by deceitful means. What! Are you saying there was something dishonest about the reaction from sea to shining sea to George Floyd’s murder in Minneapolis? I am. For example, the massive protest marches. Who exactly was disputing that the death of George Floyd was a miscarriage of justice? Nobody. Did the cops get away with it? No, they’re all getting indicted for murder or being accessories to a murder by standing around watching it and doing nothing to stop it.

No, this is a hustle, all right, perhaps the most obvious hustle in US history. It’s the Democratic Party’s last stratagem to get the monster of its own creation, Donald Trump, out of the White House. RussiaGate didn’t do it (in fact, it’s backfiring rather horribly now), ImpeachmentGate was a dud. Welcome to GeorgeFloydGate! I know it’s hard to imagine at this moment of maximum televised sanctimony, but this gambit is going to flop, too. A lot of voters have probably noticed that the wholesale looting and burning of US cities is not in the national interest. And that the people who do it don’t deserve special favors.

Of course, this is also a moment of maximum collective acute psychosis in America. The nation is pretty badly shook-up after three months of corona virus lockdown.  Millions watched their careers, incomes, businesses, and futures wash down the drain. Upsetting as the killing of George Floyd was, these losses are monumental in comparison. 99 percent of the people in America are scared shitless about where all this economic damage is taking the nation — even as they watch the stock markets go up and up and up. By the way, the past week of looting, burning, and rioting was especially fruitful for Wall Street. D’ya think that might eventually tick off a few taxpayers who understand that the stock-pumping is being accomplished by the Federal Reserve brokering more national debt in their name?

Joe Biden’s campaign has announced that he will headline the next funeral in George Floyd’s hometown of Houston, the place where Mr. Floyd accomplished the home invasion and aggravated robbery of a woman in 2009 that sent him to state prison for five years. (He was turning his life around in Minneapolis where, ten days ago, he suffered a lapse of judgment while high on fentanyl and passed a counterfeit $20 bill in a corner store, leading to his arrest and unjust death.) I’m counting on Joe Biden to raise America’s awareness about systemic racism at that event — if he can remember where he is and what’s going on.

Also on Thursday this week, the Rev. Al Sharpton announced plans for a march on Washington in August, perhaps just before the Democratic convention in Milwaukee for maximum effect. You may be aware that Joe Biden has obliged himself (sort of) to put a woman-of-color on the ticket for vice-president. Though Stacey Abrams, the real governor of Georgia, seems like the inevitable choice, I have a better idea. Wouldn’t it be perfect to bring back Tawana Brawley for this historic role? She figured so decisively in establishing the Rev. Mr. Sharpton’s cred as leader in the long quest for social justice. She’s all growed-up now and ready to rock! Tawana Brawley, America turns its lonely eyes to you! #Tawana Brawley for veep! Spread the news far and wide!

    DailyMail preparing the ground for BoJo to be replaced by a Rishi Sunak, an African-Indian:

    Kunstler may have a point … but I tend to believe that the size and broad distribution of protests (Europe included) indicates something more than horror at George Floyd’s torture/murder. And that would be a very widely shared pissed-offedness with the present state of affairs in the world and that this served as tinder for heatedly expressing it. Further, there is a second ‘hustle’ which has been ongoing for many years now, completely unnoticed – and that one is linguistic in nature. There is only one race of humans on the planet! It’s called Homo Sapiens.There isn’t a shred of scientific evidence to support any other belief, period! While it’s true that many 1000s of years ago there were several human races walking the Earth. Today they’re all gone, except one.

    “Kunstler may have a point … but I tend to believe that the size and broad distribution of protests (Europe included) indicates something more than horror at George Floyd’s torture/murder.”

    Please, “torture and murder’?? There is something called due process where that is determined. He was not tortured. It will be determined if he was murder or man slaughter. This is the bullshit of the left. They are using this event as the new lighting rod of resistance. The left is devoid of meaning. All they have anymore is just anger and resentment at how bad they fucked up. They deserve trump. It is good for them.

    Dearest Davy,

    How long do we have to keep up the facade that we are fair and balanced, you nasty douche?

    The left is devoid of meaning and we got lots of hate. Haters are gonna hate. That’s just who we are.

    “Dearest Davy, How long do we have to keep up the facade that we are fair and balanced, you nasty douche? The left is devoid of meaning and we got lots of hate. Haters are gonna hate. That’s just who we are.”

    JuanP, fair and balanced is not you that is for sure. You are binary with anti-American agenda. Yet, what is your position? You steal ID’s and use fake socks to take on multiple personalities so we can say you have a personality disorder instead of a position. I am a progressive and the extremist liberal of today are regressive. I am saying the US and China are going down not like you and the other anti-Americans here who proselytize AmericaDown only. I am fair and balanced in the decline process. You are emotional and trapped in your subjective world of fantasy. I am taking you down juanPee. One argument at a time. You are losing because you do not take the intellectual high ground you take the emotional low ground. You are mentally ill with a personality disorder of multiple personalities and obsessive stalking. You are a psychopathic personality of extreme ego. IOW a narcissistic asshole.

    “The Establishment Only Dislikes Trump Because He Puts An Ugly Face On The Empire”
    https://tinyurl.com/ydgnogkg zero hedge

    “Establishment narrative managers on both sides of America’s imaginary partisan divide have been saturating the mass media with gushing praise for the two former presidents and their wonderful words of healing and unity, and indeed, the words are quite nice. They will change exactly nothing, but they sound nice.”

    “And that is exactly what a US president’s real job is.”

    “Not to end police brutality and systemic racism, not to make changes which benefit the American people, and certainly not to make the world a less violent and murderous place, but to say pretty words which lull the public into a pleasant propaganda-induced coma while the sociopathic oligarchs who really run things rob them blind.”

    Rasmussen: Black Approval For Trump Surges to Over 40%
    Despite the recent riots over police brutality, Rasmussen has indicated that black approval for the job President Trump is doing is now over 40%. “Our Daily Presidential Tracking poll today shows Black Likely Voter approval of the job @realDonaldTrump is now over 40%,” tweeted the polling agency. The full results of the poll are yet to be published, but the number suggests that the media’s campaign to frame Trump’s response to the riots as draconian and racist has completely failed.

    “Note that the unemployment rate doesn’t remotely capture the economic damage to the labor market. Not only were there 15+ million more people unemployed in May than at the end of 2019, but another 6+ million have left the labor force. And close to 50% of households have seen a decline in income.”

    On the one side, the ADL has been using Israelis to train cops to execute the knee hold that killed #GeorgeFloyd.

    On the other side, George Soros has given Black Lives Matter millions of dollars to burn cities down when the police act like Israelis subduing Palestinians.
