Over the weekend I was perplexed when I read that at a film festival in Portland, Oregon, Kindergarten Cop was banned from the list of films to be shown.  It was filmed locally in Astoria (not too far from where much of The Goonies was filmed), with the excuse that the film “glorifies police,” and that it “glorified the traumatization of children by police.”  Critics of the film festivals decision to even have the film on their list in the first place compared Kindergarten Cop to other “racist” films such as Gone with the Wind, and Birth of a Nation (an attempt to provide a positive depiction of the Ku Klux Klan that Democrat President Woodrow Wilson was willing to show at the White House during his residency as President of the United States).

Are we now comparing your local police to the KKK?

There is nothing the police can do in the eyes of the Black Lives Matter leftists that the radicals can’t spin as being racist, and launch more people into rioting and looting.

In Chicago an armed burglar was shot by police, and it triggered mass rioting and mass looting.  As businesses flee the area due to the constant looting, the protesters hit a luxury shopping district called the Magnificent Mile.

At what point will they come to the conclusion that if they keep attacking the hand that feeds them, the businesses will go away permanently?

What was worse was that the actions taken by the looters was not some angry, random response.  The effort was coordinated.  They are now planning their stealing sprees, doing what they can to time them with incidents they can claim are police brutality.  The sheer number of looters have overwhelmed police.  The city felt the danger was so out of control that they raised their draw bridges to contain the war zone within the city.

The ridiculous nature of the whole thing was so in-your-face evident that even Jesse Jackson condemned it in a Tweet: “This act of pillaging, robbing & looting in Chicago was humiliating, embarrassing & morally wrong.”
