For several days angry mobs tear up American cities, looting stores, burning buildings, police cars and American flags and even killing individuals in their path. The rationale offered for their violence and criminal acts is that they are protesting a racist system – or in Senator Bernie Sanders more colorful words, “a grotesque system of ingrained racism and economic disparity that now more than ever needs to be ripped down.” These attacks on America are what the riots are really about. Sanders’ “grotesque system of ingrained racism” is a leftwing fantasy that fuels the rage of the rioters and their violence, which is directed not only against white Americans but also black Americans whose neighborhoods and shopping centers and businesses Sanders’ comrades are pleased to torch.
