We saw a lot of devastation during the riots in a variety of different cities.

Perhaps one of the most troubling things was seeing destruction in neighborhoods that could ill afford to lose stores that had now been looted, destroyed and/or burnt out. Seeing black business owners like Korboi Balla losing his life’s dream, the sports bar he worked toward for so long. Or Stephanie Wilford, who was disabled and so could only go to stores near her apartment, her despair knowing that those stores that she so relied on as her lifeline to sustain herself were now gone. Fortunately in both cases, generous people stepped up to help them. But there are thousands adversely affected who didn’t have their stories covered.

We’re not sure exactly where this store is but hearing from this young black mother who needed to go to the store to get things to feed her kids, her heartbreaking words as she discovers the devastation there and as she notes that all the grocery stores in the neighborhood look like this.

“To all of you tolerant liberals who displayed your wokeness by justifying rioting while sitting on your fat comfortable asses totally insulated from the damage, this is what you supported. This is on you. Congratulations you despicable monsters.”

Matt Walsh gets it right on the money.

Don’t even begin to tell me that you care about black lives when you do stuff like this, when you destroy and harm people like this. When you do that those businesses, either will often leave or not be able to pay the higher insurance premiums that will likely result.

Don’t try to argue this is for some greater socialist good because it isn’t anything but bad. It does nothing to stop police brutality and nothing to save anyone’s life. All it does is hurt this poor mother who now has no place to go to be able to feed her kids.

When media props up some of the radical leftist groups behind some of these actions, they should be forced to watch this, to understand just exactly what they are doing and what they’re really supporting.
