I never knew the world cared so much, sniff ... sniff... We've been having Constitutional rights taken away step by step for a century now. Yet, here's this one guy, not even the most upstanding American citizen, whose possible unwarranted treatment by a possibly overwrought cop has ignited the Western World's anger. The rest of the world is either shaking their heads or gloating. Only the West has these high quantities of stupidity.
It's a great excuse for riots all over I guess. Were this 1950's England, with a black population that was a minuscule portion of the total, have had anything like this, I mean, over anything besides a soccer game? (OK, excuse me, football.) It's not the same story now. Countries all over Europe with the exception of the old East Bloc and maybe Switzerland, have significant percentages of blacks or highly-foreign people who are up for a good riot. (Sometimes, these countries even import civil wars lock, stock, and barrel.)
Another factor is the Communists or proto-Communists that exist now in the white population, the antifa being the biggest organized example. With the young people that have no recollection of a country, besides Venezuela, under Communism, these types are crawling out of the woodwork again*. After mentioning the East Bloc, one wonders if there are many with the antifa type personality there too, BTW. The Western nations are the ones with the big protests though, and it's a combination of the same.
I don't know if the Infotainment-Industrial Complex across the pond has egged on the population in the same way that ours had here. This is a big part of what's going on. Do the Europeans still have that holier-than-thou indignation about American racism that Peak Stupidity discussed in "At least he made the trains run on time!" ? They should have learned a lesson from their own current demographics by now. Could there be more behind it, though? There'll be another post on this. It's just amazing that something that looks like a world-wide movement, such as the righteous movements that caused the downfall of Communism in Europe 3 decades back, is over some reprobate, worthless felon.
One cannot be sure without having known him, but it seems like the world is better off without this George Floyd. That doesn't justify a manslaughter by cop, though, as we (supposedly) have this justice system in which judge, jury, and executioner are not one and the same, and the rule of law, not men. However, with the speculation on the whole sequence of events in detaining the guy, and the drugs in his system that may have resulted in a different cause of death, how about we let the justice system deal with this cop too?
One wonders if this isn't all a big mistake, and these Englishmen are protesting the wrong Floyd. It was over 4 decades ago that Mr. Pink Floyd was wronged by Mrs. Floyd, as was recorded of this phone call to across the pond. "This is the United States calling. Are we reaching?"
From what I've read George Floyd had heard less from his wife than Pink Floyd did.
* No, of course they know nothing of Marx's Das Kapital, and probably not much of Mao's little red book, but they have the same mentality, "destroy traditional society".
