After Donald Trump blasted rapper Snoop Dogg for his “Lavender” video in which he shoots the president who is dressed like a clown, several of Snoop’s cohorts came to the rapper’s defense, and Bow Wow is the worst of the bunch.
In defense of his “uncle,” the rapper, who is also known as Shad Moss, tweeted “Ayo @realDonaldTrump shut your punk a—up talking sh-t about my uncle @SnoopDogg before we pimp your wife and make her work for us.”
This tweet is a blatant violation of Twitter rules:
Any accounts and related accounts engaging in the activities specified below may be temporarily locked and/or subject to permanent suspension.
Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.
Harassment: You may not incite or engage in the targeted abuse or harassment of others. Some of the factors that we may consider when evaluating abusive behavior include:
if a primary purpose of the reported account is to harass or send abusive messages to others; if the reported behavior is one-sided or includes threats; if the reported account is inciting others to harass another account; and if the reported account is sending harassing messages to an account from multiple accounts.
Yet, Moss’ account has not been suspended. Others have been kicked off of Twitter for far less.
There is also little to no outcry from feminists who say they are the great defenders of women. They lashed out at Trump in the election for bragging years ago about “grabbing pussy” when women threw themselves at him, and those protests morphed into a Women’s March complete with Pussy Hats. Yet, when a rapper threatens to make a sex slave of the first lady, we hear crickets.
Just like we heard nothing from the Left when Snoop Dogg released the video shooting a character made to look like the president. Trump is right. What would it have been like if a Republican had threatened Obama in the same way? Or, God forbid, if someone threatened to pimp out Michelle Obama?
Commenting on the double standard in our society has become exhausting. It just seems to happen nonstop as entertainers, politicians, and college professors go into full hypocrisy mode to beat up anyone who disagrees with them. Violent protests, threats, hostilities on social media — is this what “community organizing” looks like?
It does in a world full of Alinskyites. The extreme behavior of the Left is only causing more polarization in our society, more division that feeds dysfunction at all levels. It breeds distrust and contempt, and it pushes people who would normally be reasonable to take defiant positions.
This is especially true of many on the Right who want to bring some civility and objectivity into politics. They want to hold Trump to account when he’s wrong and support him when he’s right. But with the constant barrage of attacks from Leftists, many people find themselves bristling against them and more willing to let Trump’s more questionable decisions slide.
Violent rhetoric (and actual physical violence) from the Left is forcing alliances and intransigence on both sides that will only lead to greater disruption of the civil society. This is how wars start. It’s how dictators are born. It’s how a country crumbles from a once great nation to a footnote in history — a flash in the pan of civilization where, for a glittering moment, a great people built a civil society based on common values and mutual respect.
We are losing our country because the civil society is deteriorating. I don’t know what the answer is. Prayers. A revolution. A great awakening. Whatever it is, it must happen quickly or we’ll tear one another apart and become prey in a hostile world.
