Who pays for the damage brought by Black Lives Matter/Antifa?

Three posts from July 23-August 8, from this author, compare China’s Cultural Revolution to Black Lives Matter/Antifa.  The series began with:

“The Chinese Communist Party’s Cultural Revolution (1966-1976) was the precursor to today’s urban protests involving Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa. As America’s Cancel Culture spread into several Big Blue Cities, largely governed by Democrat politicians for decades, city officials stood back and let it happen.” (Links to parts 12, and 3.)

China: During the winter of 1978-79, many victims of the Red Guards’ violence against people and property led to “a spate of highly personalized appeals for redress of grievances written by (or on behalf of) ordinary citizens who had suffered abuse at the hands of Leftists during the Cultural Revolution.’’ (”Burying Mao, Chinese politics in the Age of Deng Xiaoping,” Richard Baum, Princeton University Press, ©1994, p. 76)

Frustrated by long delays in receiving any response from Beijing, “thousands descended upon Beijing personally to press their grievances.  With official channels clogged and response times painfully slow, many petitioners took to the streets, posting handwritten appeals (known as xiaozibao, or ‘small character posters’) at Xidan, Tiananmen, and elsewhere…Most of the petitioners who descended on Beijing were poor, many were in dire straits. Some had traveled long distances on foot, carrying their possessions in knotted bundles; others had hitched rides into the cities on freight trains or trucks…In all, more than 100,000 out-of-towners descended upon Beijing and Shanghai in 1979, hoping to have their cases reopened…Despite government pledges to review all appeals objectively and impartially, many petitioners complained of receiving unfair treatment.” (Baum, p.76)

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP), led by Chairman Mao Zedong, planned and launched the Cultural Revolution.

America: In the wake of the 2007-08 financial failure in America the saying that applied to the big banking institutions was: “Too big to fail.”
In the wake of the damage done by China’s Cultural Revolution, it was: “Too big to blame.”

What will we say when BLM/Antifa is over?

In the wake of the on-going damage to people and private property brought upon many of America’s Big Blue Cities (BBC) at the hands of (1) BLM street posters involving many white, both male and female, virtue-signalers between 17-27 years old, march through residential neighborhoods late at night, stall daytime traffic in downtown areas, and verbally intimidate evening diners in outdoor restaurants, paired up with (2) Antifa thugs dressed in all black who excel at destroying property and beating-up weaker people, we wonder: What will be America’s version of “The Petitioners’ Movement” in post-Cultural Revolution China?  

China: The Petitioner’s Movement happened when Chinese victims of the Red Guard sought redress for damages done to them and their property.  They eventually went to Beijing for redress, because they knew that’s where it all started.

The unspoken mantra for China’s Petitioners’ Movement was, essentially: “We can’t blame any one person, because that would mean blaming Chairman Mao. And he lives above blame.”

America: Can we count on the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute and, when guilt is proven, punish those in the BLM/Antifa movement who injured persons and damaged private property?

Can we expect the Democrat-elected prosecutors in the BBCs to indict and try those who injured persons, and destroyed property? Perhaps a few—those not elected with Soros money.

So, who will hold those accountable for the carnage that continues to mount-up in the run-up to the General Election, and may escalate after November 3?

China: The CCP led by Mao Zedong gave the green-light to China’s Cultural Revolution.  Then stood back, and watched it unfold assuming a life of its own, free of any one person’s control.

It was to the CCP that many of the Cultural Revolution’s victims petitioned for redress for the physical and material damages they sustained. They knew the source, but prudence meant not saying it out loud.

America: Who will Americans petition for redress for the damages that BLM/Antifa brought into their communities?

Shall claims be directed at the big corporations, foundations, and wealthy individuals who seek to buy virtue by donating big money to the BLM/Antifa Movement? (Operationally, the organizations are two heads of the same snake.)

Should victims of the BLM/Antifa movement petition the U.S. Government for damages?  That would be like suing the United States Postal Service if one of their trucks hits your new car.

Perhaps those insurance companies that pay out tens-of-millions in damages to looted chain stores will consider recouping part of their loss by suits aimed at BLM’s growing financial assets?  But, no, that would tarnish their corporate image by putting the patina of white supremacists on their brand.

That leaves those small, independent businesses that sustained damage to seek redress at the local level. The same local level that let it happen.

Those physically and materially injured by BLM/Antifa may sue their local Blue government for not dispatching their tax-funded Police Departments to bring order to the chaos when it first began, instead of letting it get out of control. Perhaps some of the defunded police money could go to the destroyed small businesses. Or not.

Problem is, more than a few of those municipalities run perilously close to bankruptcy.  (See Chicago and NYC.)

To restate the question: How will America’s version of China’s “Petitioners’ Movement” seek to redress the damages done to persons and property by BLM/Antifa

In short, who pays?

In China, little was done for the victims of the Cultural Revolution. It was born a child of the one-and-only political party, and conceived in the mind of its near deity, Chairman Mao.
