A highly disturbing, but telling scene took place Monday in St. Louis, where voters elected a Black Lives Matter grifter, U.S. Rep. Cori Bush (D), to Congress.
In a video making the rounds online, a black man is seen causally loading a hand gun while standing behind what appears to be a white man sitting on the curb of a downtown street. The assailant seems to struggle with the task, while the victim appears to know the man is behind him as he is seen repeatedly holding his hands to his head. The video is being taken from inside a building, so there’s no audio of any possible exchange taking place.
Once the black man is convinced the weapon is loaded, he suddenly points the gun to the victim’s head and executes him in broad daylight.
Equally troubling, as conservative commentator Matt Walsh noted in sharing the harrowing footage, the people filming the murder of a human being did nothing to stop it.
“Meanwhile a group of people watch as a man takes his time to load a gun and murder someone. Nobody even shouted to the guy sitting down to warn him about it. They just watched it play out,” he tweeted.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the deceased man was suspected of being involved in a fight with the gunman at a nearby Shell gas station prior to the shooting and that the suspect was “believed to have been unhoused.”
Of course, we know from recent experience that had the roles been reversed and a white man executed a black man, the odds are good that St. Louis would be in flames before another sunrise visited the “Gateway to the West.”
The radical left has Americans busy chasing their tails with mythical issues like racist cops actively hunting down young black men or that fascism permeates the Republican Party, all the while as they push critical race theory and queer theory on our children in what many on the right see as a Marxist-inspired campaign to undermine our society.
All of which serves as a distraction to the failed policies being enacted by today’s progressive-left-dominated Democratic Party. Nowhere is that failure more apparent than in Democrat-run urban areas. With woke prosecutors frequently supported by left-wing philanthropist George Soros turning jails into revolving doors, often downgrading charges or opting to drop them altogether as they endeavor to do away with cash bail, crime is rampant — even if the media does look the other way.
At the same time, the moral rot in America has ushered in an era where people will stand and record on their smartphones a tragedy unfolding, but never dare intervene to prevent it. The left’s assault on “toxic masculinity” resulting in subservient, even effeminate men who forego traditional roles they once played to assure a civilized society.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the troubling story from Twitter:
Or stopping it. America producing softer more cowardly men with each generation.
