A Martinez, California couple finds themselves in hot water over a recent decision that they have made. The city had sanctioned a massive Black Lives Matter painting and the lettering was placed in the middle of a street. The couple decided to paint over it and now the police are looking for them. A statewide manhunt has begun.
Are the police putting the same amount of effort into catching the people who are toppling statues and looting stores? It’s a question that needs to be answered. State governments have not seemed that interested in pursuing the people who are responsible for this sort of behavior. This couple could now be facing criminal charges for their actions.
Cities are being destroyed all over the nation and this is where the police are deciding to focus their attentions. This is the latest example of the liberal nonsense that has been allowed to run amok in this country. One onlooker was very upset and they received an earful from the man who was on the scene, doing the painting.
“The narrative of police brutality. The narrative of oppression. The narrative of racism — it’s a lie,” he said. The man went on to say that he believes the Black Lives Matter sign is its own form of racism. The couple who painted over the sign echoed the sentiments, chanting “there is no racism” while they handled the task at hand. They want to keep America great.
Someone called the couple racist for what they were doing and they were not moved. The woman yelled back. She said that she was not going to tolerate this in her city. If the liberals in New York City are fine with it, that is their business. In Martinez, California, people feel differently about what is taking place. They are tired of feeling like their rights are under attack.
Martinez Police Chief Manjit Sappal is not pleased about what took place. He says the city put a lot of time and effort into the mural, only for this couple to come along and damage it. He issued a press release about the matter on Sunday, calling the demonstration hurtful. Sappal does not want to see the city become further divided.
It’s probably a bit too late for that, though. The divisions in this country are stark and they are not going anywhere anytime soon. The idea that they could be addressed by a mere painting is a slap in the face towards the people that these cities claim to be supporting. If a black person believes that they are the target of racism, it is hard to see how a painting could assuage those fears.
Liberal virtue signaling and conservative values are always going to be at odds with one another. There is not much that can be done at this point. The gulf between these two viewpoints is too wide. The best that we can hope for is to peacefully coexist with one another. Unfortunately, there are too many people out there who do not wish to see this happen. They would rather watch the nation burn than admit to a serious problem.
We are definitely going to be watching what happens next very closely. Will the police chief attempt to come down even harder on them or is he going to let this go? No one knows at the moment and we are anxious to see what twists and turns this story takes. Perhaps Martinez will have a change of heart about the whole thing.
In the meantime, there is no telling what will happen next. People are starting to get annoyed with the statue toppling gangs and are taking to the streets to guard the monuments. It is only a matter of time before these divisions lead to more serious conflicts. This is the America that the liberals want, that is for sure. We hope they’re enjoying it.
