The race riots of May and June 2020 were only the latest
installment of what might be called the regime of governance by crisis
which began four years ago, when the Deep State decided to do whatever
was necessary to depose Donald Trump. That campaign began with Russiagate,
followed by the impeachment, followed by the hate speech campaign of 2019
which sought to ban “unwanted content” from the Internet, followed by the
Covid-19 pandemic. What united all of these crises was oligarch
unhappiness with the election of Donald Trump as president of the United
States and a desire to replace the institutions of representative
government with ad hoc committees of crisis managers masquerading as
scientific experts and/or aggrieved minorities.
Palestinians who watched the same video, however, saw something else. They recognized the knee hold that Officer Chauvin inflicted on Floyd as the same technique which Israeli police routinely used on Palestinians. The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) has been pressuring police departments across the country for years to train with Israeli instructors to learn submission techniques like the knee on the throat hold. But more importantly, the policemen who are subjected to the Israelification of local police forces learn more than techniques. They learn attitudes, and the main attitude they learn is that they should treat the locals who fund their departments with their tax money in the same way that Israelis treat Palestinians.
