Commenter Jack Bolling adds an entry in modernity’s burgeoning catalogue of #QuestionsNOTasked.
Why is it so important that different races live together? Why must society be turned upside down to reach this goal? Nobody knows.
Why must the different races of man cohabitate? An unfamiliar observer would pose this question with no small amount of incredulity. Incredulous that the increasingly acute pain from this arrangement only bolsters society’s determination to suffer it in greater degree. Diversity is driving a rusty nail into your palm, and pushing harder as it becomes excruciating.
From the perspective of the left the exertion seems little more than base racial warfare. A vanishing few liberals still cling to antiquated principle, though most have become quite comfortable in their eliminationist candor. In contrast, the right seems to be animated mostly by enlightenment mythologizing. Admired men once penned soaring prose for situational consumption very unlike our own. That every rhetorical flourish may not be applicable in contemporary scenarios they never conceived remains a concept resolutely unexamined. If all men are actually not created equal, as senses obstinately suggest, then we shouldn’t feel obligated to continue the pretense. No matter how aesthetically pleasing, florid fictions will always be a poor basis for society.
Mr. Jefferson could have written more honestly: All men are created to pursue their own group interests at the expense of those not of their group. Though I think it would have offered less visceral appeal in agitating against King George, alas.
And because liberals want white society replaced and conservatives want to believe otherwise, the West exclusively must therefore endure racial cohabitation. Segregation or separation being inconceivable as affronts to both political factions. This inevitably resulting in white police officers attempting to enforce western customs on increasingly large and fractious African populations. Populations not particularly inclined to aid whites in maintaining grand illusions. Just keep the wealth transfer funnel open and GTFO. I’m not sure how much more plainly blacks can articulate their position.
And in light of our determination not to comprehend the demand, given its obvious conflict with mainstream racial fantasies, we may anticipate continuing conflagrations in another long hot American summer. One aspect of this will be blacks increasingly murdering white cops who breach their perceived borders. Here’s one example that will generate no gnashing of teeth in the left’s dank hovels.
A Queens ex-con was arraigned on attempted-murder charges Sunday after allegedly shooting an undercover NYPD cop in the head, leaving him clinging to life. Suspect Demetrius Blackwell, who appeared in Queens Criminal Court in a torn prison jumpsuit — his legs shackled and his hands cuffed behind his back — did not enter a plea and was held without bail.
The plainclothes officer he is accused of shooting, Brian Moore, 25, took a turn for the worse early Sunday after surgery to relieve pressure on his brain, and distraught family members were rushing to his side, sources said. Moore is the fifth NYPD officer to be shot in as many months.
“It is a painful day for all of us,” said Mayor de Blasio, who also spoke at the hospital Saturday. “He is a brave young man,” the mayor said of Moore.
A fellow officer who knows Moore fumed, “This is the city we live in today.
“Innocent cops keep getting shot for no reason.’’
You may be assured De Blasio is so distraught he immediately phoned Hashim Nzinga seeking solace from the grief. And innocent cops are not getting shot for no reason. They are getting shot because all men are created different. They are getting shot because the flapping wings of enlightenment convention blew Brian Moore into a hostile community that does not accept his presence. They are getting shot because reality will not accommodate our rhetoric. But mostly they are getting shot because the elites are not on the business end of Demetrius Blackwell.
