Diane D. Krage: A question

A friend sent me this comment, abridged here:

“I watched Democratic leaders of Congress kneel for about 9 minutes for the death of George Floyd. I never saw them kneel for a fallen police officer, or a fallen soldier, or for thousands of babies (black and white) aborted, or for a murdered white person, or for thousands of elderly who died in nursing homes due to coronavirus. Why are these Democratic leaders placing the life of George Floyd above the lives of everyone else?”

“If you do not take an interest in the affairs of your government, then you are doomed to live under the rule of fools.” Plato 427-347 BC

My friend asks: “America, are you paying attention?”
