Progressive privilege: lefties making excuses for two lawyers arrested for Molotov cocktail firebombing of police car in Brooklyn
American Thinker ^ | August 7, 2020 | Thomas Lifson

Posted on 08/07/2020 7:27:19 AM PDT by george76

the genuinely privileged class in America’s big cities consists of radical progressives, who flout mask requirements at mass demonstrations, deface public property with graffiti, and riot and destroy while being called “mostly peaceful demonstrators.”

...

The two rioters grabbed national attention when they were arrested because of their elite and privileged backgrounds.

...

Colinford Mattis.. embodies elite credentials via affirmative action, “plucked” in Miller’s word, from East New York and educated at elite St. Andrew’s prep, Princeton (where he was a member of two elite eating clubs), and NYU Law. Urooj Rahman, born in Pakistan and brought to the USA at age 4 by her immigrant parents, made do with public high school and Fordham University for undergraduate and law school education, to become an officer of the court and thereby enjoying special privileges and obligations of members of bar, with a special obligation to uphold the rule of law.

So certain of her privilege was Rahman on the night of her firebombing that she gave an interview and allowed herself to be photographed with one of her two prepared Molotov cocktails in hand, sitting next to Mattis in his minivan.

...

Violent, bloody revolutions are usually waged by ruthless educated people who become monsters because they are so convinced of their righteousness. Maximilien Robespierre, who had thousands executed during the French Revolution only to lose his own head to Dr. Guillotine’s invention, was a lawyer. The highly educated are the most dangerous because they live in their heads and can convince themselves of anything.

I don’t see the actions of Mattis and Rahman and as temporary lapses, but rather as the product of their warped and dangerous thinking, a serious danger to the public. Making a Molotov cocktail requires premeditation.

So, they are in breach of oath and faithless

Urooj has a bright future ahead of her, perhaps a professorship at a progressive law school like Ayers and Dohrn. They hate us.

Susan Rice may be Biden’s Rasputin, pulling his strings, completing the fundamental transformation of America begun by Obama.

Where are her moslem parents when we need a little sharia?

She is holding a beer bottle — totally forbidden in her religion.

An honor killing is required.

A 4 year old was taught to hate America. No child is born as a hater. These people are creations of the society and culture they inhabit.

Liberal K-12 schools, leftist university, leftist grad school, leftist friends, and likely a heavy dose of MSDNC and the NYT and like magic attempting to burn police officers alive makes perfect sense!

This is why in any decent revolution, the lawyers are killed first

I would have no moral problem with someone deciding to cancel their lives with extreme prejudice.

The seriousness of the charges only goes one way when Commies will always circle the wagons.

Nothing new.

Left wing scum defended Sacco and Vanzetti too with Upton Sinclair writing an exoneration because he knew it would sell well in Europe even though their lawyer told him they’d done it.

In case you missed it, Sinclair is a celebrated truth teller to far too many people.

Amen to that. I work in a hospital with jabbering mutts from every Third World crap hole and from almost all of them I hear “In my country we don’t have guns’’. “In my country health care is free’’. When I say to them “Then why don’t you go back to your country?’’ they shut up.
