ONLY TRUMP CAN RESPOND
TO THE RADICAL CHALLENGE
I happened to catch a few minutes of Rush Limbaugh’s interview with the cast of “The Breakfast Club.” That’s the syndicated Black-focus radio show on which Joe Biden made his famous “you ain’t Black” gaff.
Rush explained that he was sickened by the “criminal brutality” evident in the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and wanted to “reach out” to some people with whom he ordinarily wouldn’t be likely to exchange views.
One of the hosts, Lenard McKelvey, known as “Charlamagne Tha God,” noted that Floyd’s death was only one instance of a Black person killed by police, and asked why this was the one “making you say, ‘enough is enough.’”
Rush responded passionately, “Because I’m fed up with it!”
The answer to McKelvey’s question is really quite simple…
Why this one? Because it was clear.
In other police killings, such as that of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, there have been additional facts not immediately known, or other actions not captured on video. Things happen quickly in confrontational situations, and you usually can’t know what transpired before the camera was turned on, or what might have been revealed if viewed from a different angle.
The Minneapolis incident had no such ambiguity about it.
