These riots are the end result of progressive indoctrination

The death of George Floyd at the hands of a police officer was an appalling crime, one worthy of outrage from everyone.  The despicable nature of the crime more than justified widespread protest across the United Sates. 

Unfortunately the protests turned into the wide scale rioting and destruction because far too many college students and young adults have been brainwashed into believing that violence is an acceptable form of protest.  This is something that they are being taught on college campuses.  Had they been taught civics and the original meaning of the Constitution they would know that peaceful protesting is the only valid form of protesting.  Here is the exact text of the First Amendment:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The right to protest is a combination of the rights of free speech, assemble, and petition.  The amendment clearly states that the right to assemble must be done peaceably.  Rioting, looting, throwing rocks, and other forms of violence are not peaceable therefore they are not valid forms of protest.

For decades college students, and recently high school students, are being taught that the United States is now, and has always been, an inherently racist nation.  They are receiving a highly edited history of this nation with only the worst components of our history blown way out of proportion.  That has led to tremendous and unjustified anger, especially in the minority communities.

ANTIFA is a common entity on college campuses whose members are very often recruited and taught on college campuses. They are being taught that the use of violence is an acceptable form of expression especially against people who have different beliefs. Check out this Breitbart article

A new poll has revealed that young and college-educated Americans are more likely to support the recent riots that have taken place in major cities around the nation. 58 percent of respondents with a four-year degree agreed that riots are “fully or partially justified,” including such acts as burning a police station down.

Progressive indoctrination has also misled whole generations into believing that capitalism is an unjust system that exploits everyone especially minorities.  That has led to the belief that looting is an acceptable remedy for this injustice.

Restoring our educational system is the best way prevents these riots from happening again.  We must teach again concepts such as liberty, and the original understanding of the Constitution, and the true virtues of capitalism.

  1. I grew up in the deep south in the 1950s. I KNOW what “systemic racism” looks like. I have seen signs on drinking fountains reading “Blacks” and “Whites.” I have seen the signs on busses requiring blacks to sit in the back. I have seen the signs saying that blacks will not be served.

    I know what “systemic racism” looks like and these people born in the 1980s who think they know everything have no idea how good this society is. It is as close to “systemic racism” as Earth is to Pluto.

    1. I have to disagree it’s more about indoctrination and the left pushing for a result.

      I work with a bunch of immigrants from both south america and Africa and they have absolutely no interest in this other than worrying about their neighborhoods being hit by said riots

      1. Who do your immigrant friends vote for? That’s the real point. I’ll tell you, they vote left, they vote Democrat, and being able to count on racist immigrant solid bloc voting means the Democrats no longer have to moderate their views to appease the “Silent Majority.” It no longer exists thanks to mass immigration. Your immigrant friends aren’t only concerned with avoiding riot damage, they’re concerned with acquiring political power to gain group benefits. All this isn’t about police brutality, it’s a struggle for power fueled by changing demographics.
