Two girls who took part in Monday night's riots in Croydon have boasted that they were showing police and "the rich" that "we can do what we want".Apparently they consider people who own businesses 'rich' and blame conservatives for their riotous frivolity and arson. Seems the initiating racial reason has been lost in the scruff (which must tick off those who really believed there was a race problem).
But who's really to blame for youngsters seeing shop owners as evil and worthy of destruction?
Can't speak for the Brits, but here in America we have a president who goes on the stump almost every day pushing a class warfare agenda targeting 'the rich' who 'don't pay their fair share', the solution of which is to spread their wealth around. The same guy once warned bankers that he was the only thing between them and the pitchforks. His pastor for 20 years repeated the mantra of white men's greed in a world of need. And we've had a few frustrated liberals who've suggested that hitting the streets might be the only way to get something done to stop the man. Feel free to connect your own dots.
