There is only one thing that mutates faster these days than the coronavirus: the driving narrative of America’s social justice movement.
It all began – if you still remember – with police brutality. In May of last year, it was police brutality that was America’s terrible ill and sin. To purge it, we had to beat the police on their heads wherever they showed up and burn cities across the land. And we also had to kneel.
Then came the charge of systemic racism. To do away with that scourge, we had to do all of the above, plus white people had to apologize for their privilege.
Next came slavery. To free ourselves from that plague, we had to do all of the above plus destroy sculptures and white people had to condemn themselves in addition to kneeling and repenting of their white privilege.
And now it is white supremacy that stains America.
Two weeks ago, the issue was hardly spoken of by the woke. Now they can hardly talk about anything else.
“The Capitol attack was White supremacy, plain and simple,” announces a recent CNN headline.
Following the infamous Capitol riot, the Left has somehow discovered that it is white supremacy that is at the root of what is wrong with this country.
On January 13, Cori Bush, the freshman congresswoman from Missouri, took to the floor of the House of Representatives and made the following statement:
“St. Louis and I rise in support of the article of impeachment against Donald J. Trump. If we fail to remove a white supremacist president who incited a white supremacist insurrection, it’s communities like Missouri’s first district that suffer the most. The 117th Congress must understand that we have a mandate to legislate in defense of black lives. The first step in that process is to root out white supremacy starting with impeaching the white supremacist-in-chief.”
Cori Bush happens to be black. Is it, then, not ironic that a black congresswoman complains of white supremacy which, she implies, threatens black people in her district to the point that their lives need to be defended?
If that’s the case, how is it possible that Bush got elected – in this supremacist milieu – to America’s Halls of Power as a member of this nation’s highest legislative body?
The claim that white supremacy is pervasive in America is about as true as the canard that America is a racist country. Both are patently false, and Cori Bush is exhibit number one to show that.
But this is not all. There is something else you may want to know about Cori Bush. On June 28 last year, Cori was one of the leaders of the unruly BLM crowd that broke through into a private street – in an act of trespassing and public disturbance – in Portland and Westmoreland Places, a neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. One of the houses on that street belonged to Mark and Patricia McCloskey who were having dinner in their home at the time….[ ]
