The Wuhan virus was a once-in-a-century health care catastrophe. It would have been a serious problem even had numerous state governors not overreacted and exacerbated what was already a challenging situation (to say nothing of killing elderly nursing home patients by the thousands through plainly neglectful policies).
After weeks of near-panic and crushing economic loss brought about by a malignant microscopic organism (and no, I’m not talking about the Governor of Michigan… though her too), the nation faced an historical challenge: how to begin to restore the shattered dreams and hopes of millions of people whose livelihoods had been wrecked, if not by the virus, then by the policies that followed.
It was at that moment that Black Lives Matter, an organization that professes to despise most of what I cherish about our country, our freedom and our tolerance and our optimism, chose to exploit an individual act of police misconduct to further the lie on which BLM is founded. It was at that moment that the thugs of Antifa, an organization founded to destroy the best things about our country, decided to join in and help tear our country apart.
Damn Black Lives Matter. Damn Antifa. And damn all the cowardly thugs who resort to violence because the stupidity of their hateful ideology can’t be defended with words.
America has work to do. The anti-American radicals can go to hell.
