There is a backlash brewing seemingly across the globe, this is evident across social media platforms, as people who are forced to stay in their homes are becoming more and more agitated and upset at their governments telling them what to do.
This is so, even though in many cases the directives from their government is preventing exposure to the potentially deadly virus COVID-19.
The problem as many people see it, is that they are being asked to stay at home by governments that have made no preparations for their survival, as it relates to food, paying their mortgages, rentals, or other living requirements.
The orders are resulting in the closure of their businesses and the loss of their livelihoods.
This enforcement is left up to the police to ensure that people abide by the directives handed down to them to enforce.
In the United States with its bi-polar justice system,(one for white people and another for blacks), enforcement range from handing out masks to white sunbathers in Manhattan’s west village to brutally battering black citizens mere blocks away in another neighborhood.
Across several states from New York, right-wing groups of angry whites have taken up arms in the state of Michigan and have demonstrated their disdain at the Governor’s stay-at-home orders, which they deem to be tyrannical and excessive.
Heavily armed white resistance to Governmental orders resulted in resistance members storming the Michigan state legislature, eliciting no police response.
A woman of color in the New York City Subway system walking with her baby daughter was violently assaulted and arrested by a horde of NYPD thugs in uniform for not wearing a mask.
The clueless police commissioner Dermott Shea said his thugs did nothing wrong, the police union supports and encourages criminality within the NYPD said the police should not be enforcing social distancing rules, though not addressing the vicious assaults on innocent citizens including a vicious assault on a young mother of color in the subway system in front of her infant child.
The infantile Mayor of the city called that incident “troubling,” clearly not wanting to offend the 38,422 strong uniformed-gang of thugs.
The state’s Democrat Governor, Andrew Cuomo, is too busy raising his national profile to care about police abuse. He had nothing to say about the abuse of the state’s citizens happening on his watch.
People are skeptical, as stay at home orders are extended small mom & pop businesses are forced to remain closed while major corporations like Facebook, Walmart, Amazon and others are decimating Main Street.
It is for that reason that the stock markets in America has been on a tear even as more and more small businesses close their doors for ever.
As small businesses close their doors large corporations gobble up the remaining market share they did not already have.
This will inexorably create a wider income gap and broaden the chasm between the haves and the have nots.
Brace yourselves for tougher times ahead .….……
