America in flames, as reported in The Financial Times: Political Observer comments

Three paragraphs devoted to Joe Biden’s comments, ‘the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee’ subject to his own attempt at self-rehabilitation, about the irredeemable character of the black habitual offender: the Predator of the white nightmare:

The Crime Bill, the toxic remains of which, places his attempt at rehabilitation in the category of null set! Or should the reader compare this change of heart/mind to Obama’s ‘evolution’ on Gay Marriage? Here is the comment of a Mayor not included in this Financial Times essay:


Headline: Chicago mayor drops ‘coded’ f-bomb blasting Trump’s controversial tweet on George Floyd protests

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) on Friday torched President Trump’s controversial tweet about protests after the death of George Floyd, sharing a “coded” message: “It starts with ‘f’ and ends with ‘you.'”

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
