While there was plenty of action yesterday, it wasn’t on par with 1968. Sure, there are three more days to go, but I get the feeling that there won’t be any ’68-style confrontations.
My assessment of yesterday is that we got a lot of blatantly contradictory mish mash, the most obvious of which is that we were told that the country is already great because Baraq Obama made it that way, and the country is a dystopian hellhole of social injustice, income and wealth inequality and Republicans winning elections on occasion.
Michelle Obama used the occasion of her speech last night to note that “big men with guns” take their daughters to school. These people all want us to hate cops, but they want their protection. Remember, Baraq and Michelle Obama deliberately bought in a Chicago neighborhood that had two layers of police protection, CPD and UCPD. They want wafer thin dainty transgenders armed with restraining orders to be your cops, but they want big men with guns to protect them. They want affirmative action for the military and law enforcement, but when he wanted to pull off the keynote accomplishment of his first term, he turned to the whitest part of the military, the Navy SEALs.
