Democrats have planned this BLM rioting for a long time, and have actually held test runs in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore. Apparently, they are satisfied with their finished product.But the breaking of windows has been going on for some time. First, Democrat mayors and the like stop enforcing drug laws. Then they make it OK to pee in the street. In California, the state government stopped enforcing shoplifting laws. Los Angeles started allowing hobos to put up pup tents.This is the Democrat plan for America.
This isn’t just a case of Democrat politicians paving the way for their violent footsoldiers by making the conditions easy for a breakdown in law and order. Instead, across America, Democrat politicians are doing something new: They are inciting the masses to break the windows. We aren’t witnessing an oppressed people rise up against a totalitarian politician class. We are, instead, seeing a political class that has its hands on some levers of power, using the mob against those people who still cling to the rule of law and their increasingly limited freedoms.
I propose that we Americans work to improve a single metric: Black high school English language proficiency test scores. That's it. Forget GDP, forget the debt, forget crime rates, forget birth rates, forget illegitimacy. Forget all of it. Black high school English language proficiency test scores are the key.

(T)hey actually have to do something real - maintain a vaguely-functioning society in their blue cities. While the media and the rest have no stake in whether or not Taniqua can walk to a CVS for her prescriptions, living in the untouched suburbs as they do, the Ds do have a stake in it.Further, even they have to understand, at some dim level, that they can't do this without a police force to maintain some amount of order. Oh, sure, you can pull the cops out of black neighborhoods and close your eyes as the murder rates skyrocket, but you still need stores with stuff in order for your citizens to survive.
If you're at all competent and productive, you'd have to be a total idiot to stay in Minneapolis, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, New York and a half dozen other progressive cities. There's a part in that (Chicago aldermen and mayor) phone call where one of the aldermen muses about what will happen when the wild young men make their way into the residential neighborhoods where lots of people are armed. He's concerned that people will be shot. Yes, they might be shot today, but tomorrow, they'll find "For Sale" signs on the front lawns.It's all dramatic and macho to talk about defending your home and family with guns, but it's not how anyone wants to live. You work all day to pay your mortgage and support your family. When you come home, there's a list of honeydos you have to tackle. The weekends are spent attending youth sporting events and fixing things around the house. Who wants to do all that and have to lay in bed at night waiting for noises that mean you need to grab your Glock and defend your home? Why not just move to a place where there aren't so many fatherless young men?
The Democrat leaders are tasked with managing this population while our news media, education system and entertainment industry do their best to keep them enraged about phantom discrimination. At the same time, the cops are bailing, the cities are damaged, rebuilding prospects are dimming and their tax revenues have dried up thanks to their own draconian lockdown policy responses to the Wuhan Flu.IMHO, the Summer of Anger is just beginning in the blue cities. They're falling off the tiger and are going to be eaten.
