Broken Windows

By mike flugennockTuesday - August 16th, 2016Categories: liberty, media

Just a couple of nights ago, yet another black youth was killed by police in America — this time in Milwaukee, touching off a night of rioting which featured the burning of a gas station and the smashing of windows on businesses and cop cars. And as usual, White America and the Boss Media were getting their panties in a twist more about broken windows than human lives.

For those of you who’ve been living in caves since the 1990s, “Broken Windows” has been a policing institution gifted to us by the likes of Rudolph Giuliani in New York City. Basically a pretext for the establishment of paramilitary police occupations of the poorest — and blackest — areas, it was such a hit that “Broken Windows” opened up franchises in pretty much every city in the US, spreading its brand of harassment, profiling, intimidation and brutality.

After observing this form of right-wing “folk wisdom” in action for over twenty years, I can’t help but ask: whose windows are really being broken here?

Gold Star Mother

So, about a week or so ago, The Donald queefed out yet another classic Tourette’s outburst about how he “sacrificed” during the Iraq War by “employing thousands and thousands of people” in response to remarks at the Democratic Convention by Khizr Khan, father of Army Capt. Humayun Khan, killed in Iraq in 2004, about how The Donald “sacrificed nothing” for his country.

The Democrats, always on the lookout for an issue to exploit, started up a good old-fashioned flag-waving contest, yelling to anyone who’d listen about patriotism and sacrifice. Gotta give ‘em credit, though; they managed to find the perfect non-issue to distract the media from all the leaks of DNC emails detailing their campaign of fraud and deception against Bernie Sanders’ campaign for the Democratic Presidential nomination. And it’s always good to see that Liberals love Muslims — as long as they’re willing to die for the Empire.

And speaking of sacrifice, I’m guessing Chelsea was too busy studying to become a hedge fund manager to do any sacrificing.

#DNCleaks

At last report, there is absolute zero evidence that the Russians had squat to do with the recent Wikileaks dump of Democratic National Committee emails detailing the program of fraud and sabotage against the Sanders campaign. Still, that hasn’t stopped all manner of Liberal Democratic mouthpieces like MSNBC shrieking at full throat about how “the Russians did it”.

Actually, I think it’s too bad that the Russians didn’t do it, because ma-aan, would that have been some poetic justice.
