Have family and friends of family whose stores burned down in Chicago. For years the media has shown the deepest concern about words the president said about immigrants, which could lead to harassment. Today, their life savings are gone, and the response is “lol, just property”

One of [the AoSHQ] commenters on Twitter had a really good point yesterday. The media hand-waves this destruction away because these things are “insured”. But that’s not true. The property owners are insured. The shop owners, who mostly lease, usually aren’t. Their inventory isn’t. In face, most of that inventory is purchased with credit. A lot of these people are completely ruined.
I’m told it was kdabear:
Enough with the "it's ok, the stores are insured" bullshit. The store spaces are usually leased, so the store doesn't get the payout. Inventory is rarely insured, and the store owner usually has to borrow money to buy inventory. Top it off, the store owner now has no income

Meanwhile, the Sandanista Communist mayor of NYC says that looting will be permitted while church attendance will not be, because expressing racial grievance is an important right, whereas communing with God — not so much, not so much.
Quite a few people are pointing out that the media suddenly has no interest in Crowd Shaming people during These Trying Times of Coronavirus.
Looking forward to New York’s new al-Sisi, if the city’s ever lucky enough to get one. https://t.co/qB8C9MDgri

It’s a Karen bylaw that you can’t play Karen to black people. Upper Middle Class White People, members of the Managerial Professional Class, Moral Scold Division, can bully other white people, but black people are sacred beings and earthbound angels who cannot be questioned.
So poof! Away goes any pretense of concern about covid.
CNN last week, "How are we going to stop these sunbathers on California beaches?!!!" CNN this week, "Masses in the streets walking arm in arm. Good for them."

I see a number of mayors were praising people for gathering peacefully.

I mean yeah I know filthy white trust-fund thugs from antifa are in the mix in these things, but the Karen Kommandos know they can bully and shame white people. The fact that they’ve suddenly stopped worrying about transmission in large crowds — or worrying about failing to keep six foot social distancing while looting stores — is due to the Top Karen Dogma of instant deference to any nonwhite Victim. (And all nonwhites are Victims, of course!)
Mollie Hemingway reminds of what the media was saying — just days before they were praising Crowds looting Gucci’s:
Say what you want about the violent riots throughout the country that are devastating American cities and citizens … they did quickly put an end the media's previously unbreakable support for the shutdowns and mask shaming. (A few exceptions here and there, obviously) https://t.co/c7uikjaUPZ

That guy was Mask Karening even during the rioting (in which many of the criminals wore masks so they could not be identified, but did not maintain social distancing).
But for most in the media — no more mask shaming!
Because the Murchants trying to make living are lsing their murchendise to mobs of uncivlized goons has that sunk into your thick Liberal Skulls or dose it go inn one ear and come out the other or it the logic blocked by all that Fat
What they are not reporting is life savings gone years of hard work to open and run a little business that they own lost. (insurance was to expensive with the shut down)
Antifa is all in for the agenda 2030. No private ownership of anything, total reliance on the all powerful government who will stop global warming and everything is free.
What if these urban investment programs actually work?
People that dont want just another useless Youth Center, or worse want them to keep promises and account for tax dollars. Schools that get better scores this could be very very bad for the agenda.
@kitt: NO liberal understands making a living. In their world, the federal government (i.e. taxpayers) always come to the rescue. Democrats in leadership merely believe all you have to do is wait around for some bribes and graft to pay the bills.
