In watching the anti-police protests over the last month you may have found yourself wondering what it is, if anything, these people blocking traffic want. Chants of “No justice, no peace,” are meaningless platitudes progressives have been chanting since the 60s, and drum circles don’t exactly convey a coherent message of any sort. But underneath all the “Hey-heys” and the “Ho-hos,” there is an agenda – it’s convoluted, rings of fascism, is decidedly anti-police and is downright stupid, but it is there.

As if chanting their desire for “dead cops” and actually celebrating that chant coming to fruition wasn’t bad enough, the protesters now have a list of demands.

So what do the people who couldn’t bring themselves to take a few days off of protesting so New York could bury two police officers murdered by someone sharing their sentiments and their cause want?

On New Year’s Eve these self-appointed arbiters of “justice” planned to march to Times Square and disrupt the celebration. Unfortunately for them, the shine had worn off their cause. The short attention span of those easily moved to the streets in the name of a hoax had their indoctrination trumped by their desire to party.

In addition to the natural boredom that sheds anyone from a cause, the general rudderlessness and downright nastiness of the anti-police progressives in charge has led to a hemorrhaging of members. The only remaining people willing to support a lie are the few, true believing progressives who see the lie as noble and the cause more important than truth.

When New Years Eve came around, the only people left were the core, the choir. So when it came time to define what they are about, what they’ve always been about, the rational voices left to dissent or offer temperance to the progressive radicalism that leads the movement were gone.

With the emperor naked, they put fingers to keyboard and laid out their desires. Some of the more choice demands are: (all emphasis is theirs)

“We demand a total independent investigative body that has full and total investigative powers, and unhindered access to any scene and full access to all evidence. This investigative body will have full prosecuting power, and the authority to mete out punishment. This agency will have the power to immediately sequester any and all officers that are involved and/or on the scene.”
