We’ve seen two juries wend through a lot to come to just verdicts over this past week in both the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse and in the trial for the murder of Ahmaud Arbery.

For all the division that folks on the left were pitching in both cases, the juries were able to sift through it all and come to the correct decisions. That’s as it should be, despite all the political narratives being pushed.

It’s a point you would think everyone could embrace — something upon which we all should be able to agree.

Yet, to folks on the radical left, “all lives matter” is a cardinal no-no that will cause a meltdown. Their argument is that saying that phrase is somehow diminishing of black lives. That’s an argument I never could understand, since it’s implicit within it that indeed “all lives matter.” How does saying “all lives matter” diminish anyone? It lifts everyone up. What it
