The final, final, final fundraiser, er, memorial to a career criminal which received more televised coverage on “conservative” Fox News than Neil Armstrong or John Glenn is finally, hopefully over.
The consequence of this deification and sainthood appointed to someone who did not deserve to die in this manner but still engaged in some of the worst types of crimes that one could do, including putting a gun into the stomach of a pregnant women during a home invasion robbery, will now be evaluated on a national scale.
The costs of the overreaction and radicals taking over many large cities is just now being realized, as one estimate said Minneapolis alone experienced over $500 million in damages. One result of the riots is an undeniable fact however; many businesses, especially small family owned companies, will go bankrupt or shut down in these cities or relocate. Sigma-7 is one of those companies as the Minneapolis media was shocked to learn (from the Minneapolis Star-Tribune article today):
A Minneapolis manufacturing company has decided to leave the city, with the company’s owner saying he can’t trust public officials who allowed his plant to burn during the recent riots. The move will cost the city about 50 jobs.
“They don’t care about my business,” said Kris Wyrobek, president and owner of 7-Sigma Inc., which has operated since 1987 at 2843 26th Av. in south Minneapolis. “They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”
For anyone who has owned a business, this is a painful decision. The mayor’s reaction speaks volumes however as he is more concerned about the feelings of those offended by the thug cop’s action than that of the citizens he took an oath to protect.
Thus why his community looks like Syria right at the peak of the recent civil war there:

Yet outside of the Twin Cities, the epicenter for the “protests” other so-called paragon cities of civil rights and equality did just as poorly. If one doesn’t believe this statement, let’s start with CNN in Atlanta:

Atlanta was not alone. New York City:

Los Angeles area:
I could go on and on and on about this, but you get the idea. Now that the dust is settling, the smoldering fires extinguished, and the Democrat mayors of these towns back into the “Orange Man Bad” mode for assigning blame for their own incompetence, there is one undeniable fact that the media will not acknowledge but everyone with half a brain cell will. Chicago, Detroit, Milwaukee, Portland, Seattle and Washington D.C. all experienced destructive riots from radical extremists yet some how it was the fault of the President for failing to teach the state of Minnesota how to regulate their own law enforcement officers.
There will be even greater flight from those cities and states experiencing this massive wave of unbridled, unchallenged violence. Minneapolis now joins the long sad list of cities like Detroit, St. Louis, New York City, Gary, Indiana and others that once law and order breaks down and submits to liberal delusions by condoning such behavior and vilifying the police, sane citizens and business who can leave, do so.
Expect the resurrection of some of those famous racist terms from the 1970’s like “White Flight” and “economic inequality” to reappear in the years to come as the populations flee to states which still believe in law and order along with sane fiscal policies which promote growth. The reactions will be weak attempts to shame individuals into staying but between the overreaction to the Wuhan Flu and the riots, for many this was the last straw.
Once the “freedom loving” states fall into the “Purple” or “Blue” reign of terror and implode like those rusting relics of history up north and out West, that will be the warning sign and that time is coming soon. I give Florida and Texas less than ten years before the population shifts politically, then all hope for the United States will be lost as we fracture into a nuclear armed version of Yugoslavia. For those readers trapped in government sponsored schools and education programs, I suggest reviewing Sarajevo during the siege of 1992.
It is coming to America, if we do not hit the reset button to restore our nation sooner, rather than later.
