“Alvin Bragg is the 37th District Attorney elected in Manhattan. Alvin – a lifelong Manhattanite who served as a state and federal prosecutor – has spent more than two decades fighting to make our communities safer and our criminal justice system fairer.”
This is the header on the official website of the Manhattan District Attorney. Alvin Bragg is also another one of those black district attorneys that George Soros spent millions of dollars electing so that they could prevent black criminals from being indicted for the crimes they commit.
So, after destroying the criminal justice system in New York City and destroying the lives and businesses of countless New Yorkers he’s decided to add hypocrisy to his lawlessness. Here’s what I mean.
If a black criminal held up a jewelry store by beating the owner into submission and made off with a million dollars in diamonds and even if the NYPD managed to catch him red-handed Alvin Bragg would let him go. No bail needed and maybe no charges.
But if the Democrat Party wants to harass Donald Trump, Bragg will gladly indict and prosecute Donald Trump for an old charge in a victimless crime that all of Bragg’s predecessors found too absurd to pursue.
Selective enforcement of the law is the process that the Left uses to punish Republicans and conservatives and protect their criminal constituencies which currently means the black inner-city thugs and thieves.
Well, it’s not surprising. This has been going on forever. Think of the policeman that was hung out to dry for the Michael Brown shooting and the guy who stopped Trayvon Martin from bashing his brains in by shooting him. They were prosecuted for self-defense. The fact that they weren’t convicted was luck based on the honesty of the juries. But what kind of chance will Donald Trump have with a Manhattan jury. I doubt he got 5% of the vote in Manhattan in 2020.
And from what I understand the Justice Department is waiting to get their turn with the classified documents case. So, the lawfare will probably go on for years.
I guess the only point of this post is to acknowledge that the Left has volunteered to add yet another page to the roster of evidence that the United States of America has officially descended to the level of banana republic. Nothing more clearly defines the difference between a legitimate constitutional country and a junta like using kangaroo courts to go after your political opponents. Whether it’s Castro in Cuba or the Sandinistas in Nicaragua weaponizing the justice system is a hallmark. And now it’s in the highest visibility venue with the most famous man in the country. It’s going to be a sideshow. But they’re not scared.
I remember how before the Iraq War there were innumerable articles about how Saddam and his psychopathic son Uday were notorious for using the Iraqi justice department to imprison, torture and then murder political enemies. The rape of the family members was a particular trademark of Uday but Saddam’s regime was brutal for anyone who wasn’t in the good graces of the dictator.
Well, I guess we still have a long way to go but Washington should be proud that they’ve made such great strides in just a few short decades. Between the presidencies of Obama and Biden we have raised lawfare to a high art as the members of the Trump administration can truthfully attest. Prosecutors and judges will bend the law and suspend constitutional rights to punish those they accuse on trumped up charges. Just look at what they’ve done to the January 6th defendants.
I could hope that seeing this played out against the former President of the United States might wake up even the groggiest Americans out there and act as a call to action. But I don’t think so. We’ve hit bottom. America is a place where those in charge do whatever they want to those they despise. That’s the only lesson I draw.
