It almost seems like the Mayor of Minneapolis and the Governor of Minnesota read my post yesterday and pulled themselves back from the precipice of being served up as some kind of mushy, bland Democrat stew meat. Have I served the greater good by showing them their likely fate as a cannibal entre? Not in my opinion.
Both the Governor of Minnesota and the Mayor of Minneapolis have taken steps in the last day to curtail the rioting that has erupted in the Minneapolis suburbs after the shooting death of a black man by the police. A police chief in the city of Brooklyn Center where the shooting took place actually resisted the mob that was surrounding the police headquarters there and when scolded by a reporter for calling the riot a riot replied that he was there and that the rioters were assaulting his men with bricks and other dangerous projectiles. And he has arrested some of the rioters. The Governor called up the National Guard and the Mayor of Minneapolis has declared a curfew.
It appears that they intend to avoid last summer’s rolling riot environment. It should be interesting to see what comes of it. Will the police be allowed to do their jobs or will it completely unravel? It’s a fair question. Now that they’ve taken steps to control the unrest it could subside at least until the Chauvin verdict is reached. If Chauvin is acquitted of all charges, I expect that the feds will nuke Minneapolis out of solidarity with the rioters. But even if Chauvin is found guilty of all charges there will still be a riot unless the punishment includes him being drawn and quartered.
It’s been a little less than a year since the 2020 riots. It may be that Antifa/BLM “leaders” will heed the begging that must be going on from Dementia Joe and his running dog lackeys. Gee, I hope not. I prefer my own glimpse into the apocalyptic future. I dream of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer being added into the pot of Democrat goulash that would result from a full meltdown of the 51st State if the wrong steps are taken by the Congress during some critical period like Juneteenth or NBA Draft week. Difficult culinary decisions will have to be made. It’s obvious to anyone whose followed the House of Representatives that Pelosi is way too stringy to be useful in a normal meat entre. Maybe if some kind of pulled pork recipe could be modified and lots of hot sauce is added to mask the disagreeable flavor of carrion, then possibly Pelosi meat could be added as a filler. Schumer on the other hand is completely unusable. The bitterness and mushy texture would render anything he was added to, inedible. On the other hand, Romney burgers would be pretty good. A little bland for sure but very usable. But the stand out on the menu would be Liz Cheney rump roast. Let’s face it, Liz would see her finest hour as barbecue for the neighbors there around the Capitol.
Update: The police officer who fired the shot and the police chief who tried to stop the rioting last night have both resigned. It looks like the rioting will ramp up from here on in.
