Ass-Backward Assessments Incorporated...
Up in arms for all the wrong reasons.
I get it. I do.
You rage on Twitter about the fact that a whole shift of Robocops go into a house in London to evict squatters who have taken it over. But when your house got burgled, they took a week to send one 5ft woman with a pepper spray and a cultural sensitivity manual. It is unequivocally wrong.
The house in question belongs to a Russian oligarch. That does not matter one jot. It is private property, and the question of where the money came from is a totally separate matter, which our authorities have been completely and willfully negligent in addressing. A separate matter nevertheless.
“I don’t get service from the police, so why should this Russian billionaire get it?”
The answer is you should BOTH get timely, adequate and competent attendance from the police if your property is invaded.
But if you think that the Russian guy doesn’t deserve this statutory protection because of his money or worse because he’s a foreigner from a country whose government does unspeakable things, then you don’t actually deserve it either.
Similarly, if you think that your wimmin’s vigil was treated with ruthless brutality, but you have no sympathy for those peacefully marching against lockdowns and vax mandates when they are violently attacked, you’re on super-thin ice.
Again, the answer is that BOTH events should have been treated as rightful and peaceful, which they were. Agents provocateur disgracefully trying to foment violence in order to manufacture an excuse for the police to go in hard should be recognised for what they are, whoever’s protest is subject to it. It is the act of a high-handed, totalitarian state.
Yes, the Met Police are an absolute disgrace from the top to the bottom. Always. The kidnap, rape and murder of Sarah Everard was a national disgrace about which every decent person should be angry and every copper should be terminally ashamed. Likewise Jean Charles de Menezes. Likewise Stephen Lawrence. Likewise every time the Met Police has let political priorities and personal prejudices trump equal and decent treatment for aggrieved citizens. Likewise every time an officer has gotten off scot-free for a disgraceful abuse of power or failure to prevent such abuses under their command.
Not just when they violently break up YOUR peaceful protest, but when the do it to mine too. They have to be held to a standard, and the word “standard” has a pretty clear meaning.
You cannot demand fair treatment for yourself while denying it to others based on your prejudices. If you do, you’re sooner or later find yourself being outraged on Twitter while everyone else points at you and laughs.
The race-hustlers demanded - and got - hate-crime multipliers for crimes committed while under the influence of ‘muh racism’.
But when they find themselves charged with felonies for racially attacking white kids, they’re amazed and outraged.
YOU ASKED FOR THIS. BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, YOU DUMB MOTHERFUCKERS.
