The COMMENTARY gang expresses its shock and disbelief at the ability of liberals and the Biden White House to disregard the unmistakable evidence in the police shooting in Columbus, Ohio, in favor of their preferred narrative about how cops are systemically racist—and how they might be giving birth to an “Enough Already” Party. Give a listen.

    Ricochet Audio Network: The COMMENTARY gang expresses its shock and disbelief at the ability of liberals and the Biden White House to disregard the unmistakable evidence in the police shooting in Columbus, Ohio, in favor of their preferred narrative about how cops are systemically racist

    I really don’t know why anyone would be shocked at this.

    As I dive in I hope this is sarcasm but I fear this is John’s Manhattan-esque bubble failing his ability to have clarity

    I indirectly wrote about this, about how the mind works to create blind spots to the Truth.

    It’s more than confirmation bias. It’s how our financial support and reputation will blind us to what threatens both.

    It’s that and people who saw Biden as what he used to be without realizing what he used to be.  He was a horse trader but always go along to get along. It’s just that the people he needs to get along with have gone in a different direction

    In a way, the Biden Administration seems like the Trump Administration.  Both Presidents were somewhat outside the mainstream of their parties.  Biden was, and campaigned as, more moderate than the Democrat base.  Trump was, and campaigned as, a populist, not as a conservative.  In both cases, the appointees were from the base’s leadership.  Democrats in the current administration are on hard left, and Republicans under Trump were conventional conservatives.  The results are what the appointees want.  The difference is that the hard left support problematic things like open borders, and say it’s wrong to protect a black girl who was about to be knifed.  The right’s policies improved the economy.

    I keep seeing and hearing this, but there doesn’t seem to be any evidence behind the claim that Biden was somehow more moderate than the Democrat base. Or at least any more moderate than your typical candidate is. In my memory of the guy going back 20 some odd years, he’s always been a lefty, and a somewhat nasty and stupid one at that.

    and a somewhat nasty and stupid one at that. FIFY. I totally agree that Biden is a nasty piece of work.

    Its suddenly shocking? After Russia Hoax, after all the race hoaxes. Its suddenly shocking that the media will crop video – will deceptively edit video in order support their partisan narrative. The left is now not only defending the indefensible, they’re celebrating it. Let them celebrate knife fights.

    I would be OK if it was the elite going into knife fights but it is always the poor.

    Yea, maybe if it where elites who were getting into knife fights, they would be tougher minded than they are now.
