The Democrats Are Falling Off The Tiger

They key to tiger riding? Don't fall off.

The progressives in the media, our universities and entertainment have force-fed racial paranoia to us for decades and it's coming to a head. With nothing to show for decades of misrule and pandering, the Democratic Party, particularly its leaders, are about to fall off the tiger.

Cops are quitting and the remaining ones are demoralized.

At least seven Minneapolis police officers have resigned from the department since widespread unrest began over the death of George Floyd last month, and more than half a dozen are in the process of leaving, according to department officials.

The departures, an unusually large exodus, come amid a growing crisis for the state’s largest police force, with a state human rights investigation underway, calls for defunding, and even disbandment.

Morale has sunk to new lows in recent weeks, say department insiders, as officers reported feeling misunderstood and squeezed by all sides: by the state probe; by protesters, who hurled bricks and epithets their way; by city leaders, who surrendered a police station that later burned on national television, and by the media. Numerous officers and protesters were injured the rioting.

Without police protection, most of the businesses that were burned down aren't going to return. 

None of the riots will solve the problem because the problem they seek to solve doesn't exist.

Instead, a very different problem exists and has eaten out the core of black culture. There are almost no intact, traditional families in their neighborhoods. The result is near total ignorance and illiteracy.
Democratic-controlled cities have the poorest-quality public education despite their large, and growing, school budgets. Consider Baltimore, Maryland. In 2016, in 13 of Baltimore’s 39 high schools, not a single student scored proficient on the state’s math exam. In six other high schools, only 1% tested proficient in math. Only 15% of Baltimore students passed the state’s English test. That same year in Philadelphia only 19% of eighth-graders scored proficient in math, and 16% were proficient in reading. In Detroit, only 4% of its eighth-graders scored proficient in math, and 7% were proficient in reading. It’s the same story of academic disaster in other cities run by Democrats.
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.

It's not possible for me to fathom the monumental stupidity of left. [Had a feeling as I typed that I've said this before! The joys of an aging brain.}

Will it make a difference in the elections? The Dems have moved on from harvesting votes of minorities. Now they are doubling down on voter fraud, and stealing votes.

The biggest problem with these riots and such is that facts don't matter.

There's a long time between now and the elections. The cops get a vote in this and my bet is that they will vote with their feet. Let's see what happens when policing stops in the blue cities.
