Once once again, the media accidentally presented a plain contrast in between their fake storytelling and reality going on around you.
Over the weekend, the press released stories about the best of the “The Joker,” connecting it to white rage. It was as if they ‘d already had actually these pieces written in advance by the exact same CNN intern.
While they hallucinated grim narratives, one played out genuine on New york city’s streets.
A madman killed four homeless guys simply blocks from the mayor’s office.
Probably, the madman hadn’t seen “The Joker.” He was a young, deranged short-term with 14 priors. This criminal activity was a result of a bureaucracy that cleans its hands of the homeless and the criminally insane, enabling disaster to follow both.
I haven’t seen the movie, but understand the plot. The Joker struggles with mental disorder, but due to budget cuts, the government slashes his treatment.
That appears a more pertinent plot point than race.
And it underscores Saturday night’s mayhem.
In America’s cities, the government’s concept of treatment is the street.
This Saturday night massacre won’t lead the news, since the homeless aren’t the most beautiful victims, and the perp isn’t the perfect mustache-twirling bad guy.
But it’s not a motion picture. Today’s world is run by those who choose to penalize offending words rather than avoid demonic deeds. As a result, the most desperate are delegated suffer up until they switch on themselves.
It’s no story from DC Comics, but the other D.C. It’s a truth born from an abdication of responsibilities by a helpless administration.
Possibly that’s why the mayor and the media choose the comic book.
