Thug Lives Matter!

Jeff Bezos, that model family guy who cheated on his wife--and family!--replied to an angry Amazon customer who complained about a "Black Lives Matter"  banner on his website that has declared war on local businesses: "I simply don't worry that my son, 20, might be choked to death while detained."

Is there anything else he might worry about? Such as that his son might grow up to be like him or that the kid might be murdered by street thugs. Even Jeff Bezos must know that over 50% of the violent crime in America--murder, rape, armed robbery, assault--is committed by that less than 15% of the population currently engaged in the nightly activity of burning down the cities they live in.

But, oh that's right. ONLY Black lives matter, and don't you ever forget it. Of course everyone does, because if anyone cared about Black lives, he'd be out protesting the thugs who are far more likely than the cops to kill members of their own race. All these professional lefties out there demonstrating against the cops are really demonstrating their contempt for Black Americans who are being preyed upon by the George Floyds in their neighborhood.

    I looks like the end of it all, in the long run, will be either civil war or South Africa with non-black rulers.

    For Bezos, donating ten million dollars to some cause is like buying a cheap cup of gas station coffee, size small. We should all laugh at him for announcing that donation on the Amazon site as if it’s really a big deal. He’s a real life Dr Evil holding the world hostage for “one milliyon dollars!” Of course I’m just shocked that his effort to support revolution is geared toward destroying small businesses. I just would never have foreseen such a thing! As if he thinks no one will figure that out. What he hasn’t figured out is that they will come after him sooner or later, because his skin just ain’t the right color.

    I have wondered for years just how many of these big business types are true believers in the insanity, and how many are just playing along, contributing to it in various ways because they are afraid of those who rule over us all and control the supply of the very money they have sold their souls to accumulate, and hope to escape being targeted by becoming scallywags and janissaries. Don’t they know that their masters despise boot lickers and suck ups? Of course, with each generation more of them are true believers anyway.
