If it wasn’t crystal clear before the death of George Floyd, a Black man then in police custody, it should be abundantly so now—the left, while harboring the odd Champion or two, is mainly run by Carpetbaggers and Criminals. Riots in cities across these United States have as of June 8, 2020, claimed the lives of 17 Americans, 13 of them, minorities. Thats’ right. The death toll is 17 times that of the incident that kicked all of this off. Ironically, most of the fatalities have been Black.
Even more tragically, most of the additional unrest, property damage and lives destroyed, has been based on a lie. That lie, believed far and wide, is that Systemic Police Brutality based on “systemic racism,” has Police Officers “deliberately hunting down and killing” Black men. It’s. Just. Not. True. As I’ve written previously, the numbers totally disprove the lie.

So how did we get to this point? Simple. The left consists of Champions, Carpetbaggers, Criminals and the people they take advantage of—their voting base. Who are these people?
First, the Champions. Champions, Advocates, Promoters and the like, are for the most part, genuinely concerned citizens. Many of them are folks who have been personally harmed by whichever situation they are advocating for the demise of. Although the situation that brought harm to them or someone they loved is statistically invisible, it’s nothing of the sort to them. And that’s important. If you can’t grasp how powerful that is, hang around the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama and listen to parents of children with rare disorders, who look at those Alabama Doctors as their last, best hope. These are the Advocates. They really care about what they are advocating for.
Then there are the Carpetbaggers. Carpetbaggers are opportunists with a history that dates back to yet another period of Democrat evil, Jim Crow. Today’s Carpetbaggers are Politicians and their associated flacks. Some good examples are Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer, notoriously kneeling in the Capitol Building while wearing African garb, interestingly affiliated with a tribe that actually sold other Africans into slavery. Go figure. Other Carpetbaggers are those who affiliate with Democrats and use race to enhance their own personal wealth. The oh so “Reverend” Jesse Jackson and oh so “Reverend” Al Sharpton are two notable members of that particular crew.
One pair, among many I’m sure, has been able to leap from the political side to the purely mercenary side and back again—Bill and Hillary Clinton. They have been able to not only monetize his Presidency for personal enrichment, but also use the “charity” known as the “Clinton foundation,” to live a lavish lifestyle, but also evade election finance statutes.
Then we come to the Criminals. These folks have their very own agenda and it has absolutely nothing to do with helping anyone but themselves. It’s important to note that distinguishing the Carpetbaggers from the Criminals can be difficult. Indeed there are a great many in each category that frequently hop back and forth, or straddle the line, thus operating on both sides. Stand out examples include George Soros in the individual category and ANTIFA in the group category.
This has been a long way around the mountain so to speak, to get to the main point. Both Carpetbaggers and Criminals use a time honored technique to influence the Champions and thence their voting base. They are especially adept at using a statistically insignificant event, an “exception,” if you will, and turning into “the rule.” They then use that newfound false perception of reality, to force changes on society as a whole**…changes that might not be necessary or at worst might actually counter productive.
This is what is going on today. The bad actors, the Carpetbaggers and the Criminals are taking advantage of the Champions in order to secure the votes of their base. They are proposing such things as eliminating police departments. Does any rational being believe that such a move would help anyone but criminals? Yet that “solution” has actually been passed in the City of Minneapolis and by a veto proof majority. And it’s all based on a lie.
