Black LIves Matter exercises their Hecklers Veto on Douthat's Amazon to St. Louis Plan

I under­stand the sen­ti­ment behind this post sug­gest­ing Ama­zon choose St. Louis for their sec­ond cor­po­rate HQ

A par­tic­u­larly com­pelling pick, accord­ing to my extremely non­sci­en­tific “what’s good for Amer­ica” met­ric, might be St. Louis — a once-​great metrop­o­lis fallen on hard times, the major urban cen­ter for a large spread of Trump coun­try, the geo­graphic cen­ter of the coun­try and the his­toric bridge between East and West.

and I agree with the idea that it would be a good idea to get out of deep blue Amer­ica and the mind­set therein.

But why on earth would any com­pany like Ama­zon decide to put itself in a city that is becom­ing riot cen­tal and make it self a tar­get for those from Miz­zou to Fer­gu­son in the Black Lives Mat­ter mob who want to go after the system?

After the spasm of vio­lence ended, a reporter for The Asso­ci­ated Press found at least half of the busi­nesses on one side of the street with bro­ken win­dows along a two block area.

Sam Thomas, who was help­ing his friend clean up the glass from the shat­tered win­dows of his busi­ness, OSO, a cloth­ing and acces­sories bou­tique, said he under­stands why peo­ple are angry. The U.S. jus­tice sys­tem is bro­ken and needs to be fixed, he said.

I’m not say­ing this is the right way to fix it,” he said of the damage.

Just as Miz­zou and other col­leges are dis­cov­er­ing that peo­ple don’t want to invest tens of thou­sands of dol­lars to put their chil­dren in the mid­dle of a social jus­tice night­mare, no com­pany with any sense will put itself in a city where the poten­tial to be extorted or threat­ened with vio­lence if they don’t play along with an agenda (even one endorsed by the owner) is present and no work­force will be all that anx­ious to head to the area when even the sub­urbs are being targeted:

Demon­stra­tors shouted slo­gans such as “black lives mat­ter” and “it is our duty to fight for our free­dom” as they marched through West County Cen­ter mall in the city of Des Peres, west of St. Louis. A group also demon­strated at Chester­field Mall in the sub­urbs and at a regional food festival.

Orga­niz­ers took their griev­ances to the sub­urbs Sat­ur­day to spread the impact of the protests beyond pre­dom­i­nantly black neigh­bor­hoods to those that are mainly white.

I don’t think racism is going to change in Amer­ica until peo­ple get uncom­fort­able,” said Kayla Reed of the St. Louis Action Coun­cil, a protest organizer.

Well Kayla your achieve­ment is unlocked, your heckler’s veto will guar­an­tee that the peo­ple at a com­pany like Ama­zon will be too uncom­fort­able to move jobs an infas­truc­ture any­where near you, par­tic­u­larly when there are other wor­thy alter­na­tives that would meet the goals Mr. Douthat is suggesting.

Clos­ing thought directed to the BLM riot­ers: While your attacks and riots will pro­duce less jobs, less busi­ness less invest­ment and con­se­quently less of a chance for the young men in your com­mu­nity to over­come the dis­ad­van­tages they have, you can be take com­fort in the fact that your actions will def­i­nitely pro­duce more votes for con­ser­v­a­tives all around the nation in every level of government.

That’s our veto.

I understand the sentiment behind this post suggesting Amazon choose St. Louis for their second corporate HQ

A particularly compelling pick, according to my extremely nonscientific “what’s good for America” metric, might be St. Louis — a once-great metropolis fallen on hard times, the major urban center for a large spread of Trump country, the geographic center of the country and the historic bridge between East and West.

and I agree with the idea that it would be a good idea to get out of deep blue America and the mindset therein.

But why on earth would any company like Amazon decide to put itself in a city that is becoming riot cental and make it self a target for those from Mizzou to Ferguson in the Black Lives Matter mob who want to go after the system?

After the spasm of violence ended, a reporter for The Associated Press found at least half of the businesses on one side of the street with broken windows along a two block area.

Sam Thomas, who was helping his friend clean up the glass from the shattered windows of his business, OSO, a clothing and accessories boutique, said he understands why people are angry. The U.S. justice system is broken and needs to be fixed, he said.

“I’m not saying this is the right way to fix it,” he said of the damage.

Just as Mizzou and other colleges are discovering that people don’t want to invest tens of thousands of dollars to put their children in the middle of a social justice nightmare, no company with any sense will put itself in a city where the potential to be extorted or threatened with violence if they don’t play along with an agenda (even one endorsed by the owner) is present and no workforce will be all that anxious to head to the area when even the suburbs are being targeted:

Demonstrators shouted slogans such as “black lives matter” and “it is our duty to fight for our freedom” as they marched through West County Center mall in the city of Des Peres, west of St. Louis. A group also demonstrated at Chesterfield Mall in the suburbs and at a regional food festival.

Organizers took their grievances to the suburbs Saturday to spread the impact of the protests beyond predominantly black neighborhoods to those that are mainly white.

“I don’t think racism is going to change in America until people get uncomfortable,” said Kayla Reed of the St. Louis Action Council, a protest organizer.

Well Kayla your achievement is unlocked, your heckler’s veto will guarantee that the people at a company like Amazon will be too uncomfortable to move jobs an infastructure anywhere near you, particularly when there are other worthy alternatives that would meet the goals Mr. Douthat is suggesting.

Closing thought directed to the BLM rioters: While your attacks and riots will produce less jobs, less business less investment and consequently less of a chance for the young men in your community to overcome the disadvantages they have, you can be take comfort in the fact that your actions will definitely produce more votes for conservatives all around the nation in every level of government.

That’s our veto.
