The other day I filmed a commentary video entitled, “Some People Just Want to Watch the World Burn.” And while that’s true, there also seems to be another version of that type of person who wants the world to burn, but only so they can rebuild it in their vision. Usually we call those people tyrants. But, in today’s society, we just call them politicians.
Democrat Attorney General of Massachusetts Maura Healey took to Twitter on Tuesday to promote what she said during her address to the Boston Chamber earlier in the day. Healey actually intimated that the burning of America could be a good thing, because “that’s how forests grow.”
Today in my address to the @bostonchamber, I spoke about how we must seize the opportunity we have right now to build anew in ways that rid us of the institutionalized racism that’s led to America burning today. pic.twitter.com/bJSXMahHyy— Maura Healey (@maura_healey) June 2, 2020
This means that, not only did Healey tell her colleagues that the fires of the riots following the death of George Floyd might be a good thing, but she thought so highly and was so proud of her own words that she decided to retweet it in a pre-made graphic.
That’s pretty twisted considering this woman is supposed to be the highest ranking law official in the state of Massachusetts.
Respondents on Twitter weren’t too fond of Healey’s comment:
And because politicians are tone deaf, Healey sent out a subsequent tweet on Wednesday promoting how you can “BE THE CHANGE” in this country:
Changing policies and laws is important, but we also must take steps in our own lives. The challenge is to white people to learn and internalize all we can about structural racism, listen to Black people, and take action. pic.twitter.com/Ksx8CmaeN1— Maura Healey (@maura_healey) June 3, 2020
