• Eating Their Own: Prominent Liberal Victims of the Progressive Mob

    Surge Summary: As unrest continues across America, the race-obsessed radical Left turns on some of its prominent own.

    One of the reasons the French Revolution ultimately failed is that it turned on itself.  The radicals could never be radical enough.  Here are some examples of the progressive mob turning against their liberal enablers.

    • Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey stood before a crowd of demonstrators outside his home.  After confessing his own “brokenness,” whatever that means, the crowd demanded to know if Frey supported defunding the police department.  He answered “No.”  Frey was forced to leave the event as the crowd turned on him, chanting “Go home, Jacob!  Go home!” and “Shame!  Shame!  Shame!”  A veto-proof majority of the Minneapolis City Council is ready to defy him.
    • Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., used taxpayer money to rename a street a block away from the White House as “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”  But that’s not all.  She also had “Black Lives Matter” painted in huge yellow letters on the street.   She was immediately attacked by the BLM movement for engaging in tokenism.  Sunday, demonstrators went to the next block and painted in huge letters, “Defund The Police,” an explicit demand of the BLM movement.  Bowser refused to say whether she would use public funds to remove the vandalism on public streets.
    • New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and other local politicians used brute force to stop people from having funerals to say goodbye to a departed loved one.  Now they are encouraging tens of thousands of people to congregate in the streets.  That is beyond hypocrisy.  It is cruel.
    • The editorial page editor of the New York Times was forced to resign over the weekend because he allowed an opinion piece written by a Republican senator to run in the paper.  Nobody resigned when the Times ran an op-ed from a Taliban leader.
    • Author J. K. Rowling is being denounced by the left for having the audacity to defend biological truth.
