Random Thoughts on the Riots

Let's begin, shall we? Don't think there's gonna be any Sunday Jams today because frankly I'm not feeling it. I thought it would be a better use of my time to jot down some thoughts on what's going on in our country and see if I can offer a bit of insight. Hint: I can.
First and foremost: EVERYONE agrees that what happened to George Floyd is wrong. Full stop. I can think of maybe 2 people on the planet that might disagree: the cop who actually did the deed and his lawyer. But lawyer is getting paid, so I doubt even he or she REALLY believes it.
Next: Everyone is on the same side when it comes to wanting justice. For a brief, shining moment we were all united. Sadly, it didn't last and that's where we get to the tricky part.
Protesters, you got hijacked. Your movement. Your peaceful protests got hijacked. That's fucked up but it happened and now it's dangerously close to being completely out of control. That's no good and you need to know that regular folk will stand up. People WILL defend their homes and businesses. Just a heads up. Lot's of people have guns in America and we WILL use them. So let's not go there. I'm begging ya.
This is probably a good time to remind everyone else to get a firearm and learn how to use it. Right now a bunch of elected officials are keeping police away from protests to not inflame the situation or some such bullshit. I also think it's fair to say that's been a giant failure. If we, as citizens, can't depend on law enforcement to protect our property and our lives, well guess what? It's up to us. So if you don't have a gun? Get one. Learn how to use it. But get one. Am a fan of shotguns personally. Big blast area. You'll be happy.
Let's get to some good stuff! This can be a moment of great change in our country and that's what I want to encourage. Woo hoo!
The President designated ANTIFA a terrorist group today. That's big! These thugs have been up to no good for a long, long time. I've seen their handiwork since 2015. Now hopefully the end is near for them. And he didn't say "domestic terrorist," that would just be in the USA. He went "terrorist" and that's global, baby! YEAAAAHHH. Much better.
Some people don't know if the President has the power to do this. Okay...let's have Nanshy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer come on TV and defend these savages. I'll wait. HA!
Guess I kinda saved the biggest for last. The Media. That's how we got here. The old school media who has been dishing up false narratives for as long as I can remember. The chickens are coming home to roost and I think their influence is starting to wane. They can't keep it up. Reality won't be denied. CNN reporters calling this a peaceful protest while having bottles thrown at their heads. MSNBC reporters declaring it peaceful protest while a city BURNS in the background. Hilarious! Very dark humor, but funny in a "that's just crazy" kinda way.
This is the same media that all but refused to admit ANTIFA even existed. They have known about this group for YEARS and now that same group that supposedly doesn't exist is attacking the CNN building and killing innocent people.
This is the same media that told us there was no FISA abuse. We now know they were lying.
This is the same media that told us Trump colluded with Russia. We now know they were lying.
This is the same media that told us Trump was never spied on. We now know they were lying.
The list goes on and on and on.
We need to be done with them now. Let's turn to New Media.
The death of George Floyd wasn't in vain. His death should mark the moment we all realized that we have been lied to and if we aren't careful, a noble cause can get hijacked. We all want to be free. And we all deserve the truth.
