Where’s The Outrage?

In plain sight of all America, the FBI and the Department of Justice committed a travesty of justice. And there’s no rioting in the streets; no marches or demonstrations. Nothing but some wonky blogs posting legal opinions of why this was simply wrong.

A black teenager is shot in Florida by a “white Hispanic,” and the nation erupts. A drug user is manhandled in the back of a paddy wagon and a city burns. Rodney King says “can’t we all get along,” and a murderer is found not guilty be reason of social justice.

But the nation’s laws protecting the lives of military, diplomatic, and intelligence officers, sources and methods are flouted by the person who was fourth in line in presidential succession, and nothing is burning. Nobody is marching. There’s no outrage.

Men are dead because of Hillary Clinton’s “extreme carelessness” with classified data (yes, Benghazi). Enemies have gained access to our national secrets and plans because of her selfish elevation of her own political aims and dreams over the job she was appointed to do. Our lives are all a little more dangerous because Clinton traded favors for large checks written to her family foundation.

Hillary and Bill Clinton have weaseled, cheated, and lied their way through eight years of one presidency, and are poised to take the reigns for another. Her lies are public and attested to by the government which refuses to prosecute her. Her crimes would result in lengthy prison terms for anyone not named “Clinton.” General Petraeus had his career blemished for much, much less.

But cities are not burning. Nobody is marching in the streets. Mayors are not telling the police to “let them have space to riot.” Police cars are not burning. There’s no looting going on, except in Washington, D.C. where the rule of law has been looted as if the Obama administration marched right in to Fort Knox and drove out with tractor-trailers filled with America’s gold reserves.

If this had been Wall Street, they’d have locked up the CEO’s of Goldman Sachs and every other investment bank for crimes amounting to a fraction of the damage Clinton has done to our nation. Hipsters would occupy New York, Seattle, and other cities, smearing their excrement on law enforcement officers.

But it was just the Clintons raping America as they’ve done for decades. So nothing will happen.

My fellow Americans, we’ve lost the country.
