In Search of Accountability

In the wake of the Dallas police ambush, as our Left complains of our city governments and how they treat African Americans, does anybody notice that our cities are controlled by Democrats?

Our Left certainly won't focus blame on Democrats who run our cities. After all, Democrats managed to blame Orlando on Republicans:

It is time for another round of Pin the Tail on Anybody but the Donkey.

After the massacre at a gay club in Orlando, Fla., by an American Muslim of Afghan origin affiliated with the Islamic State, the editors of the New York Times argued that the fundamental problem was “hate” exemplified by . . . opponents of same-sex marriage. That was an interesting line of argument. Omar Mateen was not found with a natural-law treatise in his back pocket, and he wasn’t fresh from a Princeton seminar with Robert George. He never suggested that the Supreme Court had taken too broad a view of the 14th Amendment in Obergefell v. Hodges. He was a Muslim fanatic whose heroes throw homosexuals off of tall buildings and crucify Christians.

Ah yes, the "reality-based" community. Do read it all.
