The Social Justice Bench-Warmer

Ask yourself this — how much of the social-justice racket being run by Black Lives Matter, the gay mafia and the other activists among the identitarian Hard Left is little more than a mask for poor performance?

After all, Black Lives Matter spends an inordinate amount of time and energy howling about the mistreatment of black youth by white police officers and very little in decrying the circumstances in the Democrat-run cities where those cops fight a daily losing battle to keep safe neighborhoods torn apart by economic and cultural ruin. It wasn’t Republicans who ran Baltimore, Detroit, Ferguson and Chicago into the ground, after all — in each of those places and lots more where Black Lives Matter finds purchase there hasn’t been a GOP mayor in more than half a century.
