The Disgusting Worship Of Woke Murals

The thinking of those who claim to be woke and on the left is extremely contradictory and narcissistic. They believe that rioting, defacing property, trespassing, and setting fires are perfectly acceptable as long as it is in support of one of their causes.

Unfortunately, those beliefs are emboldened by the current state of the justice system, where liberal prosecutors and judges repeatedly place real criminals back on the streets where they are a tangible threat to the general public.

On the other hand, the same officials throw the proverbial book at those on the right for ridiculously minor offenses. For instance, a 75-year-old grandmother was sentenced to two years in jail by a liberal judge in the U.K. Her crime was praying silently in front of an abortion clinic.

Here in the U.S., Three Washington State teenagers are facing felony charges after they left scooter marks on a gay pride mural painted onto the pavement. A “no-ride zone” has been created around the mural. Eyewitnesses said four young people rode scooters over the roadway mural and left behind skid marks.

Oh, the horror! Teenagers left skid marks on a mural painted on a roadway—a mural that has no business being there in the first place. Spokane’s liberal, high-handed mayor, Lisa Brown, threw more gas on the fire. To hear her description, you would think someone was murdered.

“I am deeply troubled by the repeated defacement of Spokane’s Pride flag mural. To the LGBTQ+ community, please know that I stand in solidarity with you against all forms of discrimination and prejudice.”

The teenagers were arrested and charged with felonies. They could face several years in prison. Prosecutors had wanted the judge to impose a $15,000 bond.

“We’re not going to sit by as people deliberately commit a hate crime,” one radical eyewitness told local reporters. Really? I guess destroying businesses and looting isn’t a hate crime.

At a press conference, Spokane City Council President Betsy Wilkerson kept the hatred rhetoric going:

“These are my fellow citizens that live here. I know it was called vandalism, but it was hate.”

Not to be left off the “hate” train, the company that owns the scooters also released a statement.

“All of us at Lime condemn these vile acts in no uncertain terms. At a time when our teams at Lime are beginning pride celebrations around the globe, it is disturbing to see the hate taking place in Spokane. Lime is taking immediate action against the perpetrators and doubling down on our support of Spokane Pride and Spokane Arts. Lime is proud to put time and resources into celebrating Pride Month each year and supporting LGBTQ+ organizations working to uplift and protect queer people in cities around the world. We will not let the hateful few spoil the joy of Pride Month in Spokane and are grateful for those working to make Spokane more welcoming for all.”

Lime Scooters

Lime also immediately instituted a no-ride zone around the mural to protect it from future vandalism attempts.

The idea of painting a gay pride mural on a roadway is ludicrous, but then to arrest teenagers and charge them with felonies for leaving marks on it with scooters is unfair and moronic. Any city that does this inconveniences its citizens and makes them uncomfortable using that area, and there is no reason to take pride in that.
