TWO NEWS stories today do a lovely job of illustrating the wackiness of the American cultural landscape brought to you by devotion to multiculturalism and the victim mentality. And, oh yes, ignorance.
First, a 100-year-old Navy vet was receiving a special honor at a Town Hall meeting in Portland, Oregon, one of your collectivist blue states, of course, when a pack of angry black folks (is there any other kind these days?) stormed in to chant the shopworn phrases “Hands up! Don’t shoot” and “I can’t breathe!”
This had absolutely nothing to do with the event, of course, but so what?
Second, and you’ll really enjoy the brilliant thinking behind this one, packs of angry black folks (are there any other kinds these days?) have taken to disrupting white people having restaurant brunches. They do this, they say, due to white people’s “complicity in genocide.”
So far this latter nuttiness has taken place in Berkeley, California, (knock me over with feather) and New York City (another feather), more bastions of vapid, collectivist thinking.
It’s a great time to be living outside the United States.

(Note: I feel sorry for what appears to be a minority of black Americans who are clear-thinking, informed and law-abiding citizens. How these protests must embarrass them.)
