The Progressive Left has one agenda above all others — to acquire all the power they can and hold onto it for as long as possible, and they don’t care how many other people suffer or die so long as they get power.
A nice young girl murdered by a released illegal alien with a gun lost by yet another incompetent government flunkie? That’s not a narrative they want. They want the votes of the illegal alien lobby. They want the votes of the limo libs who pat themselves on their backs for designating their filthy cesspool of a burg a “sanctuary city.” And they sure don’t want to insult their unionized federal hack constituency by focusing on yet another of its failures.
And why doesn’t Obama speak up about the daily massacres of black and Hispanic men on the streets of Chicago and other big cities? Because to do so would demonstrate the utter moral bankruptcy of the blue state model that nurtures the liberal machine. The most dangerous place in America for a minority is in a Democrat-run big city, and that fact is just not useful. It can’t demonize any political opponents, and to bring attention to it would only give rise to demands for accountability for the total failure of urban Democrat rule.
So Barack Obama and his liberal friends chose to just let people die. White, black, Hispanic – at least in their complete apathy the progressives have finally stopped discriminating. They judge everyone, of all colors and creeds, solely on the content of their political utility.
