Far-left activists have formed an autonomous zone where former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd. As with other areas where radical leftists have staked their claim, George Floyd Square has been rife with violent crime and has already had a devastating impact on black-owned businesses.
The New York Post reported: “Black merchants near the once-thriving corner of 38th Street and Chicago Avenue said police have abandoned the blocked-off intersection, creating a dangerous autonomous zone that has seen crime spike and business evaporate.”
Several black business owners have complained about the conditions that these activists are causing but to no avail. My colleague Bonchie noted that the police are not at fault for the spike in crime. “There have been numerous reports that activists and vigilantes aren’t letting police enter the area regularly to police crime. Thus, you get the crime spikes talked about here,” he wrote.
He also argued: “How has the movement actually made life better for anyone, much less black Americans? In cities where BLM has been most active, we’ve seen large increases in crime, including murders. We’ve seen economic ruin in the places where riots took place.”
The concern is understandable, but his criticism might be overly harsh. Perhaps these leftists extremists are simply trying out a new strategy to curb police brutality against black Americans.
You have probably observed that whenever radical leftist extremists congregate in black neighborhoods, things seem to get worse. Right now, these activists are putting on a performance worthy of Broadway at George Floyd Square. The production has been so enthralling that the activist media hasn’t even noticed that these people are causing conditions in this neighborhood to worsen substantially for black residents.
But, have we considered that this might be part of a strategy to reduce violent interactions between members of law enforcement and black residents? Perhaps this is an innovative way to safeguard the black lives they claim to care about.
Maybe these white knights and Marxist rabble-rousers are on to something here. If they can create an environment so destitute and violent that not even police officers want to enter the area, this would automatically cut down on encounters between black people and law enforcement.
Even further, destroying black-owned businesses will lead to more poverty. This poverty would bring about more crime, which means more black people would be shot to death in the streets. The more black corpses, the better. Fewer African Americans will mean fewer people for racist police officers to abuse. We can refer to this strategy as “Limited Ethnic Purging™.” This might sound jarring at first, but it makes sense when you think deeper about it.
If the hard left is allowed to adopt this strategy in every city with a high black population, it will do wonders for the fight against police brutality. Sure, this strategy might seem a bit disturbing at first. That’s understandable. Like most compassionate Americans, you’re probably wondering how police officers would deal with the boredom they will undoubtedly suffer when they have fewer black people to assault and harass.
But cities like Minneapolis can deal with these issues when necessary. Right now, we must address the police brutality issue, and Limited Ethnic Purging™ seems to be a promising proposition. After all, what could possibly go wrong?
