ABC News doesn’t want you to use the word “LOOTING” when describing the smash and grab robberies in upscale stores in the Bay Area after the Kyle Rittenhouse verdict came in. Over a million dollars worth of LOOT was taken. The network says that the word LOOTING is associated with black people (it’s racist?).
As an example of how the word ‘looting’ became tied to black people, they say black people looted out of desperation during the Hurricane Katrina emergency before help arrived.
That is a rewrite of what happened. There was that in the beginning, but much of the looting was for stealing’s sake. In truth, people were stealing TVs, computers, jewelry, and other unnecessary, ‘luxury’ items.
Looters are allowed to loot in San Fran BY LAW up to $900 and have gone one step beyond for months. They now send in teams to stores and each person in the team steals their $900 worth of goods. They have all or almost all been black.
DON’T VEER FROM THE ACCEPTABLE NARRATIVE, MEDIA WILL TELL YOU WHAT TO THINK
Smash and grab robberies appear to be more of the same except in upscale stores, accelerated by the Rittenhouse verdict, but the media doesn’t want me to say that. They believe it suggests the crimes are committed by black people. Don’t call it looting because we don’t know the race of the people robbing [even though people who saw the thieves describe them as black]. We don’t doubt some are white and does it matter? We can easily imagine white people behind it.
In reality, this is a massive theft operation caused by Democrat politician’s laws and facilitated, encouraged, and lied about by a corrupt media.
The corrupt media, along with political operatives, have told black people they are victims of evil white people and deserve reparations so what did the media think would happen? They let them steal, close prisons, don’t charge them for looting and other crimes, don’t require bail. What did they think would happen?
There is survival looting, and there is looting of property from the “rich” or some other group that has been dehumanized by the Left in the media, politics, Hollywood, schools and so on.
Watch the video telling you not to use the word looting. Get to 1:45 and 3:09 for the whole racist part. The truth is that if whites do it and Antifa whites do do it, it’s still looting:
SURVIVAL LOOTING OR LOOTING THAT DESTROYS PROPERTY RIGHTS
Looters rearrange property rights by taking possession of goods, moving them around, and consuming, selling, or destroying them, thus disrupting the balance between owners and non-owners. It’s a direct hit on property rights.
You have heard the Left dismiss robberies as unimportant because it’s “just property.”
The American Marxists now running at least one political party and the media do not believe in property rights except for themselves. They are property outlaws.
It is a breakdown of our system of property rights and it’s wealth redistribution. Looting applies.
Smash and grab robberies are violent, large-scale group looting and can be seen as a mass protest against society’s conception of ownership and order.
When people steal for survival as some did during Hurricane Katrina, we suspend our belief in the system of property rights, and look at the goods needed as more communal. People justify it.
However, Marxists now blur the lines between survival looting and ‘luxury’ looting.
The Soros DAs in charge in California, especially San Fran and LA, have extended the idea of justified looting and changed it to an irrational theft of $900 per person for no reason, other than to damage our system of property rights. It’s not their property they are giving away, but it’s a Marxist message to people with some assets that they have to give $900 away for free to every person, or should we state the obvious, to every minority person.
It applies to anyone they say it applies to. For instance, homeless can sleep in any person’s car in San Fran.
So, yes, looting is stealing that occurs during a general disturbance, and there is a constant general disturbance thanks to feckless politicians and the media. It’s looting and burglary. Both Words work.
