I Agree

Stacy McCain, They’re Not ‘George Floyd Protests’
Look at this sentence:

“NBC News is facing intense backlash for apparently influencing Google to punish two conservative news sites over what was deemed offensive coverage of the George Floyd protests.”

What “protests”? You mean the riots that destroyed millions of dollars of property? You mean the vandalism of public monuments? You mean the looting and arson of businesses? And what did this coast to coast spree of criminal violence — from Seattle to New York — have to do with George Floyd? How does tearing down a statue in Virginia or Ohio do anything to prevent police brutality in Minneapolis, or anywhere else?
Read the rest.

I'm fairly convinced at this point that no matter what happened, or didn't happen this spring, we were going to be facing a long hot summer of  protest. The left has simply lost it's mind with anti-Trump resistance, and they are hoping that somehow this can overcome the obvious weakness of Joe Biden as a candidate and recapture the presidency. I, of course, hope the opposite, that the displays of childish and violent acts will turn the voters against them. If it doesn't, we're in a heap of trouble.

They are being abetted in this effort by most of the media which has all but dropped the mask of objectivity (they never were, nor should they pretend). They are entitled to their opinions, but they are not entitled to suppress ours.
