When Lives Don't Matter

President Bill Clinton awkwardly told the truth about how African-American criminals target mostly African Americans (via the Instapundit Borg):

In a fiery comeback to Black Lives Matter hecklers Thursday, Clinton defended his own anti-crime policies as well as his wife Hillary’s 1996 reference to thugs as “super predators” — for which she’s apologized.

“I don’t know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them out into the street to murder other African-American children,” Clinton said. “Maybe you thought they were good citizens. [Hillary] didn’t.”

Bill ripped the BLM folks for “defending the people who killed the lives you say matter” and challenged them to “tell the truth.”

This type of Leftist similarly views a Western war on Islamist jihadis overseas as anti-Islamic despite the clear fact that Moslems are the overwhelmingly largest victim of Islamist jihadi violence.

And yet opposing the jihadis is considered "Islamophobia" despite the fact that in Belgium, ordinary Moslems who are the first and most numerous victims of these monsters, want help in opposing the haters and killers--who were subsidized by the Saudis:

[When] data was compiled about the origins of ISIL recruits from Europe it was found that Belgium had the highest per-capita number of ISIL volunteers. No surprise that many who returned (nearly half died in Syria and Iraq) were even more determined to bring the war to Belgium. At this point Belgian officials were forced to admit that many Belgian Moslems had complained to the government about all this anti-Western preaching and were ignored because it had long been Belgian policy not to offend the Saudis. [emphasis added]

And as a bonus, hopped-up proto-jihads found that deep knowledge of the Koran was not as valuable in a job search as they assumed--leading to more anger (is there a lesson for our colleges that churn out graduates with useless degrees at high cost?).

Now tell me again that "Black Lives matter" to you when you refuse to protect African lives from thugs inconveniently the same skin color.

And tell me that you oppose "Islamophobia" by opposing the war on terror, which means you refuse to protect Moslem lives from thugs inconveniently the same religion as the haters and killers.

Yet conservatives are lacking compassion? Sure, you say.

Well, if that is so, then end Republican control of the city of Chicago, which a task force said has a police force that has "no regard for the sanctity of life" of minorities.

What? Democratic mayors have run the city for how many decades? More than 8? Huh.

The compassion of the hard Left is odd, is it not? It seems that the only lives that matter to them are the Black criminals and the Islamist jihadis.

Content of character be damned. It's all about the externals. So keep dreaming.
