London Looters Are A-Holes by Greg Gutfeld 10 Aug 2011 post a comment Share This: So as rioting in London spreads like plaque on rotted teeth, there's something more toxic than the violence going on. It's some of the reaction to it - which stinks of justification. Says one anarchist, while punks steal chocolate: "This is the uprising of the working class. We're redistributing the wealth." Yep - free sweets - that's a revolution. I'm sure those folks in Syria are inspired. I tell you - I'd hate to be a shopkeeper, knowing that the man looting the store is viewed more romantically than the man stocking the shelves. But you can find this idiocy anywhere: academia, TV, movies, music... the belief that despicable behavior is okay if you dress it up as a response to "the man." But what's worse is the way we now respond to this crap. It is the curse of political correctness: Our fear of demanding good behavior now allows for bad. The collective low expectations creates a world of broken spines - not just in London, but in Philadelphia and Milwaukee where flash mobs rage - with the media too timid to follow. Could it be that if you expect civilized behavior from the modern class, you're a racist? Is it better to just look the other way, and lock your doors? Or move? Finally, I ask, why does looting occur? Well, it happens because you let it. Without fear of punishment, or harm, there is no need for the looter to stop - especially when he's got apologists behind you. I guess what I'm saying is - this would never happen in Texas.
