Big Tech Platforms are acting as the defacto policing /judgement force of the internet by deciding whose Speech is most relevant, which Speech might languish, and which Speech must die, never to be resurrected. Is this what you expected to occur on OUR internet when we began expending so much of our time on this medium?
Publisher's note: I wrote this post on April 29, 2015, one day after the great Baltimore riot, but I have moved it up a bit on our news feed, so the publish date reflects the last date moved forward, and not the original date published - April 29.
Since I published this thumbnail synopsis of why Baltimore failed its people, and now is failing them still, it has become demonstrably worse, made more terrible by the pathetic performance of not only the Mayor, but now the political hackery of Baltimore City's State Attorney's General Marilyn Mosby, a highly celebrated "Young African American Woman". Ms. Mosby may well have soured the milk of justice by insinuating the absolute guilt of 6 Baltimore police officers held in the death of Freddy Gray. For her, the pursuit of justice may take an irrevocable back seat to her political pursuits, her advancement as a "Strong Young African American Woman".
Truly, her prejudiced pronouncements in the early stages of her prosecution will surely jeopardize the case's venue, and what then if the accused Baltimore cops (3 White, 3 Black) are not aspirationally prosecuted because of Ms. Mosby's prejudicial statements. What then for Baltimore? Yet another riot because your elected Democrat did not do her job, and rather sought political advancement over justice? If we have not learned anything over the last 6 1/3 years, have we not learned that bad political behavior is equally rewarded, and often in a very bad way.
Baltimore is run by Liberals, and has been for many decades. The barbaric anarchy in the streets of Baltimore. this April 27, 2015, is a true embarrassment even for Baltimore, a city, not unlike Detroit, Michigan, that has long been in a state of perpetual decline.
Like Detroit, Baltimore has long been in the grip of ultra liberal politicians, who waste resources first, and actually cogitate the reality of governing effectively second. For example, take the mayor of Baltimore, Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. With Baltimore's buildings on fire, and police officers stoned to the point of multiple broken bones, the infamous mayor publicly pronounced that her city government: “gave those who wished to destroy space to do that.”
In real terms, Ms. Rawlings-Blake wanted to exhibit a oneness with those that she considered simply protesters of the alleged wrongful death of the Baltimore man, Freddy Gray, rather than the same inividuals that Right thinking folks would consider lawless thugs. Her hands off the criminals policy, as well exhibited in her comments below; as Baltimore burned, as police cruisers were pounded by looted liquor bottles as they sped to safety away from the 'maddening crowd', ironically, 'the whole world was watching'.
Because of Mayor Rawlings-Blake's tepid rules of engagement, the Baltimore Police were wholly ineffective, and, understandably, overwhelmed, where there were almost as many serious bodily injuries to Baltimore's officers, as there were arrests on a night of tens of thousands of lawless acts. Not until the Republican governor, Larry Hogan, enacted a state of emergency, and deployed his national guard with loaded weapons at the ready, was the public anarchy calmed to the point of a relative safety.
What occurred in Baltimore this night was just a mess. It was a symptom of complete government breakdown, not unlike the worst of what occurred in Detroit, and other cities run by Liberals, who really never manage to do what is prudent, only to do what was expedient to stay in office and remain on the government teat.
Selling off the prestige of one's elected office to remain in office, in control of the immediate destiny of those that are also totally reliant on the government teat, is a tenable position of safety that these politicians will never deserve. Yet, they stay in power, hang around useless, regardless, they remain in power, and when the stuff hits the fan, as it did in Baltimore, they say stupid stuff, stupid like Baltimore's Mayor Rawlings-Blake.
Last night's culmination of riots, theft, brutality and arson is the outgrowth of decades of bad politicians elected by the very people that cry that they are victims of their government. This is a public masochism of profound proportions, and now the citizens of Baltimore are well reaping what they have well sown.
Considering the riotous acrimony in the welfare state of Baltimore: Which tenet of self-government should this city, like so many Northern cities under the clutches systemic liberal policies, embrace to better govern its people to forestall complete anarchy?
2.06% Baltimore's government should continue to care for those that can't or won't help themselves.
97.94% Baltimore's government should revert back to a policy of self-help first, then provide assistance.
0% Baltimore's government needs more welfare to appease those that would be thugs.
