When A Mountain Of Flesh, Ma’Khia Bryant, Attacks …

When a mountain of feral flesh, Ma’Khia Bryant, attacks with what appears to be an intent to kill another—a concept is conjured from the Idiot’s arsenal to blame uninvolved whites, and their society at large.

Black girls, explains the New York Times’ resident idiot, have a “unique burden”:

In media coverage, Ms. Bryant has consistently been referred to as a woman, and her behavior and her body size have been scrutinized to suggest that she presented a large, uncontainable threat to everyone at the scene.

“It’s called adultification bias.”

Hard to keep up with how stupid and immoral America has become.

In reality, “Officer Nicholas Reardon’s body camera shows Bryant with a knife in hand, lunging towards a young woman who is pinned against a car. As Bryant reaches back with the knife, Reardon fires four shots.”

That cuddly “kid” was about to kill. She needed killing.

NEW ON CNSNews.com: “Resist the Left’s Conflation of ‘Racism’ With the Law, for Chauvin and Beyond.”

An excerpt: https://tinyurl.com/3j6sdu5z

Racism consists of a mindset or a worldview that boils down to impolite and impolitic thoughts and words written, spoken, preached, or tweeted.

If that’s all racism is, you ask, then what was the knee on George Floyd’s neck? Was that not racism?

No, it was not.

Judging from the known facts, the knee on Mr. Floyd’s neck was a knee on a man’s neck. That’s all that can be inferred from the chilling video recording in which Floyd expired slowly as he pleaded for air.

Floyd begged to breathe. But the knee on his neck—“subdual restraint and neck compression,” in medical terms—was sustained for fully eight minutes and 46 seconds, causing “cardiopulmonary arrest.”

There are laws against what transpired between former Officer Derek Chauvin and Mr. Floyd.

And the law’s ambit is not to decide whether the offending officer is a correct-thinking individual, but whether Mr. Chauvin had committed a crime.

About Officer Chauvin’s mindset, the most the law is supposed to divine is mens rea—criminal intention: Was the officer whose knee pressed on Floyd’s neck acting with a guilty mind or not?

For fact-finding is the essence of the law. The law is not an abstract ideal of imagined social justice, that exists to salve sensitive souls.

If “racism” looks like a felony crime, then it ought to be prosecuted as nothing but a crime and debated as such. In the case of Mr. Chauvin, a mindset of depraved indifference seems to jibe with the video.

This is not to refute the reality of racially motivated crimes. These most certainly occur. It is only to refute the legal and ethical validity of a racist mindset in the prosecution of a crime.

Surely, a life taken because of racial or antisemitic animus is not worth more than life lost to spousal battery or to a home invasion.

The law, then, must mete justice, in accordance with the rules of evidence, proportionality and due process. Other than intent, references to the attendant thoughts that accompanied the commission of a crime should be irrelevant—be they racist, sexist, ageist or anti-Semitic.

Ultimately, those thoughts are known only to the perp….

NEW ON YouTube: DEEP TECH’S Economic Terrorism

“… I touch on financial deplatforming, which certainly verges on violating the natural right of individuals to make a living. …

… Telling people they can’t open a bank account teeters on informing your victims they might not be able to make a living, despite the fact that they are innocent; their only offense being a thought crime, namely typing or wafting words into the air.

How do you make a living if you can’t bank, or contact your clients electronically? Do you go back to a barter economy (a book for some bread)? Do you go underground? Cultivate home-based industries? Do you keep afloat by word of mouth? Go door-to-door? Go back to stamping envelopes? How can you when your client base is purely electronic? …”

 

Poland Pushing Back Against Deep State Digital Oligarchy (And A Caveat)

How pathetic is it that, outside of our country, leaders are doing more to defend their citizen’s free speech than anyone in the USA, including the Republicans, who did nothing when they had the chance.—Michelle Malkin

I am envious that the Polish government, as opposed to the American regime, including the just-departed administration, appears to be looking to force the American “Deep Tech” companies to respect the freedom of speech of its citizens. In Poland, social media will be unable to take cover behind, “Your speech violates our community standards” ploy, deployed by the tech oligarchy stateside.

However, if the Polish government simply replaces Deep Tech’s speech politburos with their own—this won’t necessarily be a triumph for speech unpoliced. What must be emphasized is a return to unfettered speech (however abhorrent) for all.

Caveat notwithstanding, Poland is streaks ahead of America.

Meanwhile, and much like Wikipedia, the repulsive “Twitter’s ‘Birdwatch’ feature embraces its self-appointed thought police, giving citizen censors stamp of approval.”

And below, fighting words from Michelle Malkin and guest Matthew Tyrmand. Bravo.
