Lady Gaga, another Liberal addicted to false narratives

Liberalism is an ideology of feelings, and of self-importance. If a Liberal “feels” something, it really does not matter if that Liberal is well-informed or has the facts on their side. It matters only that they can proclaim that they care, this showing how good a person they are. Take Lady Gaga, who apparently still thinks Trayvon Martin was cut down in cold blood

Singer Lady Gaga revealed in a recent interview with Beats 1’s Zane Lowe that the song “Angel Down,” which appears on her new album, Joanne, is about the highly publicized 2012 shooting death of Trayvon Martin.

“There an epidemic of young African Americans being murdered in this country. I was overwhelmed by the fact that people just stood around and didn’t do anything about it, and that the justice system continues to, over and over again, not seek justice for these families,” the six-time Grammy Award winning singer said.

“I have my ear to the ground of my fans, young African American women and boys who are terrified. … They tell me they drive in their cars, and when they hear a siren there’s a paranoia that runs through their body, that they freeze up that they can’t think.”

Well isn’t she just special? Martin was hardly an angel. He attacked George Zimmerman, and was in the process of pounding Zimmerman’s head off the sidewalk  when Zimmerman shot him in self-defense. The trial proved that convincingly. I remember watching the trial and thinking why was Zimmerman charged? The prosecutions own witnesses damaged the case against Zimmerman, and the evidence was all in Zimmerman’s favor.But, all of that matters not to Lady Gaga. Let us look again at her words

“There an epidemic of young African Americans being murdered in this country. I was overwhelmed by the fact that people just stood around and didn’t do anything about it, and that the justice system continues to, over and over again, not seek justice for these families,” the six-time Grammy Award winning singer said.

Well, yes there is indeed such an epidemic. But it is not armed citizens or police that are summarily executing Black people without any consequences. It is, in fact gang members, and wannabe thugs who are doing the overwhelming majority of the killings. Perhaps the singer might try speaking out on that fact, rather than painting police and armed citizens as guilty somehow?

“I have my ear to the ground of my fans, young African American women and boys who are terrified. … They tell me they drive in their cars, and when they hear a siren there’s a paranoia that runs through their body, that they freeze up that they can’t think.”

Again, most of the cases involve a gang member, or a person with a long record of violence, a person who has prior convictions, and who really ought to be in prison draws a weapon on police, and not just Black youth either. Many White youths are shot because they did not comply and show their hands, continually reaching where they might have a weapon, refusing to drop a weapon or actually pointing a weapon at police. What would famed self-defense and use of force expert Lady Gaga have police do? Come on Lady gaga, please share your infinite wisdom.

And please Lady Gaga, tell us at what point someone is allowed to defend themselves. And tell us at what point the responsibility for the vast majority of these shooting is given to the aggressors and not the person defending themselves and family or to police doing their jobs. I eagerly await your wisdom Lady Gaga. Or do you just prefer to to spout emotionally based narratives that are short on facts?

Yep, that is what I thought
