I say let it burn. Those areas don't have what it takes to enforce the law. They don't have the will, they don't have the political fortitude, they don't have the mental ability to stop people from rioting and burning and looting. So let it burn, baby. Not one single fucking cent to Minneapolis. Burn it to the ground, and then laugh at the people who remain.
Is that cruel? Fuck yes it's cruel.
"But Dave, the majority of the people there aren't rioters! They don't deserve that!"
True. But the vast majority of the people there voted for the radical Leftists who run Minneapolis and its suburbs. They voted for the limp noodle of a mayor, and the Marxist governor. There's not one single Republican on the city council. The mayor of Brooklyn Center, where the current crop of "mostly peaceful" riots and looting is going on, just fired the city manager for saying that the cop should get due process. The guy didn't say the cop was guilty or innocent. He said the cop should get due process, and for that heinous crime the mayor fired his ass.
Let it burn. Let it all burn, and then mock the idiots who burned their town down around their ears while they sit in embers and ashes. Maybe, just maybe, if it's painful enough, people will learn that you don't allow rioters to control everything and everyone.
Fuck the fucking fuckers. If I were a home owner anywhere near the toxic shithole of Minneapolis, I'd be spending time on my roof with a scoped rifle, just waiting for the
targets rioters to come to me.
