Memorial Day — a day so solemn that President Obama himself passed up a terrific opportunity to hit the golf course so that he could lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery and deliver remarks on this, the first Memorial Day since the end of the war in Afghanistan.

Speaking of honoring the nation’s fallen, members of the Peoples Power Assemblies and NYC Shut It Down “disrupted” the holiday to construct their own Arlington on Coney Island “to draw attention to the countless lives lost at home to the war police wage on communities of color every day.” To represent graves, activists laid 20 towels marked with chalk outlines on the beach to represent those who could not be there today.

Countless lives lost? Things are much worse than we’ve be led to believe.

White thug biker gangs in Waco, Texas, recently had a shootout that killed nine; therefore, your argument is forever irrelevant.
