The disturbances of London were somewhat quelled last night as police flooded into London — and many other places in England burned perhaps as a result. If you have not yet read it, please read Kevin Gosztola’s post providing an explanation of what is happening. It is the rare thing that is not allowed in our media.

Sounds like an ideal time for the usual suspects at a typical location to say something incredibly stupid. I just wish they’d make up their minds.

This morning in the National Review, Stanley Kurtz suggests that President Obama privately supports the violent protesters.

Yes, because if there’s one thing that’s been proven over the last two and a half years, it’s Obama never failing to kick ass and take names for the dispossessed. He’s a fierce advocate y’know.

Alternatively, National Review’s John Derbyshire takes a different approach, the kind of fair-minded one we’ve come to expect:

Today Britain is merely a place, a bazaar. Let it burn!

So Derbyshire goes Kurtz’s fictional Obama one better, and publicly supports burning a country to the ground because amongst other things he doesn’t like chicken curry.

As you might imagine, he’ll continue to collect a pay check.
