Since the waning days of Barack Obama’s lame-duck presidency, America has been afflicted by various protest movements. At this point, it’s almost hard to keep track of all of them.
The first major movement to hit the streets in cities all across America was the Black Lives Matter protest. The movement was born out of the assumption that the now deceased black American Michael Brown held up his hands right before being shot to death by a racist white police officer. This isn’t at all true, of course — Brown was actually killed in a struggle with the officer wherein he tried to confiscate the cop’s service pistol. But, that didn’t matter — the cultural left was more than happy to appropriate the movement for its purposes.
Then, we have the Women’s March — which appears to be a collection of jobless feminist who care really deeply about getting free abortions, and seemingly nothing else.
Of course, we can’t talk about America’s protest culture without the latest two additions: Antifa and the alt-right. These two movements, which are oddly both dominated by white males with axes to grind, are treated very differently by the mainstream media. While the former is excused for using demonstrations to commit acts of vandalism, assault, and in some cases arson, the latter is condemned as proof that Adolf Hitler and his Nazi goons have returned from Hell to wreak havoc across the country.
Every movement mentioned in this post is stupid. They are all based on faulty assumptions about American life, and are mainly supported by mentally ill individuals with nothing better to. But, if you had to take a guess on which one the mainstream media focuses on…which would it be?
You know the answer.
