Black Lives Matter vs Black Lives Saved

If black lives mattered to the Black Lives Matter contingent, black lives saved would be their objective. But that would mean voting Republican, which would run contrary to the actual objective of driving America as far off the rails to the left as possible. The current administration has saved many lives by reversing Obama’s war on cops.

Via Breitbart:

Nationwide, homicides spiked to 15,195 in 2016, up from 12,278 murders in 2014 when Obama and his progressive and media allies began blaming police forces for multiple episodes in which young black men were killed.

This was a consequence of the Ferguson Effect, by which police respond to hostile political pressure by taking a more hands-off approach to policing, resulting in more violent crime.

Since then, Trump has ended the White House support for the Black Lives Matter movement, and the number of murders was forced down to 14,123 in 2018, according to new FBI data. The murder rate dropped by 6.8 percent from 2017 to 2018.

The combined reduction in murders in 2017 and 2018 adds up to roughly 1,318 Americans who did not die from murder since Obama’s departure in early 2017. … A large percentage of the people who did not die are African-American.

Contrary to what the liberal media would have you believe, blacks are not normally killed by white police officers, but by other blacks. This happens due to lack of law and order, an intolerable situation that Democrats aggressively advance.

If leftists thought black lives matter, they wouldn’t be willing to let black neighborhoods degenerate into anarchic jungles to advance their agenda.

Halftime Entertainment in the Age of Black Lives Matter

Six days after two police officers were murdered by Persons of Politically Preferred Pigmentation in Brookhaven, Mississippi, high school football fans were treated to this display as halftime entertainment by visiting Forest Hills High School of Jackson:

That about sums up the Black Lives Matter movement.

Black Lives Matter Crashes Police Officer’s Wedding Party

Had enough of Black Lives Matter yet? How about now that they have crashed the wedding party of an officer involved in the shooting of Criminal of Color Stephon Clark earlier this year?

BLM took video of the incident so that they could share it with the world. When some of the video was shown on local TV in Sacramento, the faces of the police at the wedding party were blurred out of fear for their safety. That is the kind of country we live in now, thanks to moonbattery being allowed to fester out of control.

Via LEO Affairs:

In the video, several activists went to a scenic location where a wedding party for one of the officers was being held, barging into the “ready room” where the groom -identified as Officer Terrence Mercadal- and his friends were hanging out before the exchange of vows took place.

Mercadal is black himself. No matter. Police are not allowed to shoot black criminals, or else there will be reprisals. If a suspect is a Person of Politically Preferred Pigmentation, it is racist for police to defend their own lives against perceived threats in attempting to apprehend him.

Tanya Faison, founder of BLM Sacramento, explained the strategy:

“I think they [i.e., off-duty police officers] need to be approached in spaces where they’re a little more vulnerable,” she told CBS.

Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) must feel gratified that her marching orders are being carried out.

If the mafia pulled intimidation tactics like this when gangsters are killed, authorities would put a stop to it.

First Congregational Church of Oakland Drafts Jesus into Black Lives Matter

Repressing Christianity with brute force is ineffective. Not even Stalin could do it. Perverting it into something so moronic that everyone loses interest may prove a more effective strategy. This is attempted by moonbats like Nichola Torbett, lay leader of the progressive First Congregational Church of Oakland. As mentioned previously, her church has divested from the police on the grounds that law enforcement is racist. That is, parishioners are encouraged not to call the police when they are victimized by the rampant crime that characterizes diverse hellholes like Oakland.

The church features a giant Black Lives Matter sign. Torbett demonstrates how BLM ideology can be grafted onto Christianity:

“One of the things that gets lost in Christianity in this country often is how Jesus was positioned in the society that he lived in,” Torbett said. “He was part of an occupied nation, a colonized people. A brown-skinned man, who was surveilled, targeted, harassed, finally arrested, beaten, and killed by state forces.”

Just like politically preferred persons of oppressed pigmentation.

I didn’t know that Jesus was brown-skinned, or that American blacks are a colonized people living in an occupied nation. You can learn things you never imagined from progressive churches these days.

Torbett barks that calling the police on criminals of color outsources violence to the state…

“Which is exactly what the religious leaders said when Jesus was arrested,” she explained. “They said, ‘We can’t kill him, but you can. Our law forbids it — but you can do it.’ “

When a swarthy criminal robs you at knifepoint to feed his drug habit, appreciate how blessed you are to have come face to face with someone just like Jesus.

Largest Black Lives Matter Facebook Page Revealed as Fake

Put together two things as phony as Facebook and Black Lives Matter and what would you expect if not fraud?

For at least a year, the biggest page on Facebook purporting to be part of the Black Lives Matter movement was a scam with ties to a middle-aged white man in Australia, a review of the page and associated accounts and websites conducted by CNN shows.

The page, titled simply “Black Lives Matter,” had almost 700,000 followers on Facebook, more than twice as many as the official Black Lives Matter page. It was tied to online fundraisers that brought in at least $100,000 that supposedly went to Black Lives Matter causes in the U.S. At least some of the money, however, was transferred to Australian bank accounts…

The Fakebook page drove traffic to sites associated with the benignly named, which was registered by an Australian National Union of Workers official named Ian Mackay.

“Our mission is to raise awareness about racism, bigotry, police brutality and hate crimes by exposing through social media locally and internationally stories that mainstream media don’t,” a message on the group’s Donorbox page read.

More likely, the mission was to enrich Mr. Mackay. Fools and their money are easily parted.

Black Lives Matter Shuts Down ACLU Free Speech Event: “Liberalism Is White Supremacy”

You have no freedom of speech on a college campus unless you say what Black Lives Matter militants want to hear — even if you are a moonbat yourself:

Students affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement crashed an event at the College of William & Mary, rushed the stage, and prevented the invited guest—the American Civil Liberties Union’s Claire Gastañaga, a W & M alum—from speaking.

Ironically, Gastañaga had intended to speak on the subject, “Students and the First Amendment.”

The spectacle certainly was instructive regarding the relationship between students and the First Amendment in the age of safe spaces and Affirmative Action run amok.

Students took to the stage just a few moments after Gastañaga began her remarks. At first, she attempted to spin the demonstration as a welcome example of the kind of thing she had come to campus to discuss, commenting “Good, I like this,” as they lined up and raised their signs. “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this illustrates very well. Then I’m going to respond to questions from the moderators, and then questions from the audience.”

That was the last she was able to get out before the militants drowned her out with chants that included “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution” and “liberalism is white supremacy.”

This confirms two assumptions: (1) the Constitution that defines this country will be abolished in favor of raw tyranny the moment these people get the leverage (no wonder BLM types won’t stand for the national anthem at NFL games); and (2) if they get their revolution, the white liberals who enable it will not be spared the firing squad.

This went on for nearly 20 minutes. Eventually, according to the campus’s Flat Hat News, one of the college’s co-organizers of the event handed a microphone to the protest’s leader, who delivered a prepared statement. The disruption was apparently payback for the ACLU’s principled First Amendment defense of the Charlottesville alt-right’s civil liberties.

Thug tactics are used because thug tactics work, although only among people with insufficient commitment to liberty. Before long, this will inevitably lead to rule by thugs. Zimbabwe, here we come.

Black Lives Matter Activist Issues Demands of White People

Whatever can we do to appease the angry Caucasian-hating sociopaths comprising Black Lives Matter? BLM activist Chenelle Helm tells us where to start. A few lowlights from her list of 10 demands:

White people, if you don’t have any descendants, will your property to a black or brown family.

White people, if you’re inheriting property you intend to sell upon acceptance, give it to a black or brown family. You’re bound to make that money in some other white privileged way.

White people, re-budget your monthly so you can donate to black funds for land purchasing.

White people, especially white women (because this is yaw specialty — Nosey Jenny and Meddling Kathy), get a racist fired.

Naturally these demands are only a stepping stone to the next set of demands. If the Welfare State and Affirmative Action haven’t placated black activists, nothing will. Unless…

What if we send Chanelle to a part of Africa where there are no white people? Let her come back after a year or two of pawing through the dust for dead locusts to eat and pulling up her loincloth to squat over a hole in the ground, and she may demonstrate some shred of gratitude.

In response to spoilt Black Lives Matter loudmouths and all of their demands:

Black Lives Matter to Receive Peace Award

Even George Orwell would have found this unreal:

Black Lives Matter is set to receive a “peace award” to highlight the group’s work to bring about change in a non-violent way, a foundation announced Monday.

The Sydney Peace Foundation will give the award to the movement’s founders Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi and Alicia Garza in November, reports the Guardian.

Each year the organization tries to honor people who are “leading global voices that promote peace, justice and nonviolence,” the foundation explained.

The slogans “War Is Peace; Freedom Is Slavery; Ignorance Is Strength” have been replaced. Now we have “Strife Is Peace; Anarchy Is Justice; Violence Is Nonviolence.”

Black Lives Matter is well known for chants like “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” and “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want ’em? Now!” It has sparked numerous riots. Its inflammatory rhetoric has led directly to the murder of police officers, most infamously in Dallas and Baton Rouge. In Oakland, BLM protestors vandalized a police station. BLM is widely regarded as a domestic terrorist group.

The purpose of Black Lives Matter is to disrupt peace. No homegrown entity in the USA is more conspicuously undeserving of a peace prize. That’s why pious liberals see fit to give it one.

After Caving to Black Lives Matter, University of Missouri Forced to Cut 400 Positions, Raise Tuition

Think about it, American University. Are you sure you want to follow University of Missouri off the edge of this cliff?

Officials at the University of Missouri’s flagship campus in Columbia have announced a plan to cut approximately 400 jobs and raise tuition in the face of a projected 7.4 percent plunge in student enrollment and a $14.7 million state budget cut. …

Mizzou officials blamed the enrollment decline — the second steep enrollment drop in two consecutive years — on ongoing “public perception concerns,” according to the [St. Louis] Post-Dispatch.

In the aftermath of a one-practice racially motivated strike by blacks on the football team, University of Missouri caved to a mob of Black Lives Matter thugs, allowing them to drive out President Tim Wolfe, basically just to show they could. More moonbattery inevitably followed, sending the school into a tailspin as its reputation collapsed and students who actually wanted to learn rather than protest went elsewhere. Without taxpayer support, Mizzou probably would not be able to keep the lights on.

In the end, you can have moonbattery or you can have education. You can’t have both.

Poor Sales Force Marvel to Dump Black Lives Matter Comic

One reason moonbats hate capitalism so vociferously is that there is no escape from merciless market forces, no matter how deeply progressives bury themselves in their unreal realm of leftist idiocy. For example, Marvel Comics has been forced to dump its new Black Lives Matter comic:

[L]iberal darling Ta-Nehisi Coates and Yona Harvey’s Black Panther & The Crew is getting the axe after poor sales, just two issues after its launch. Its cancellation comes just weeks after a Marvel VP revealed that comics with forced messages of “diversity” were responsible for the publisher’s sales slump.

Joined by Luke Cage, Manifold, Misty Knight, and Storm, the titular superhero who entered the limelight with Captain America: Civil War gathers his all-black crew of superheroes to investigate the death of a civil rights activist who died in police custody. It has echoes of Sandra Bland’s death.

Set in a near-future Harlem-turned-police state patrolled by robotic police officers controlled by a private security contractor, the comic has every element you’d expect from a comic attempting to tell a story inspired by Black Lives Matter. The cops beat people up for no reason, too. …

Coates explained to The Verge that Marvel decided to kill the publication due to poor sales, and that there wouldn’t be any continuation after the current story arc ends in its sixth and final issue. The market spoke, and Marvel listened.

Gizmodo predictably barks in outrage over the series being canceled just because no one wants to read it, when the important thing is that all the characters are black.

No worries for Ta-Nehisi Coates. Even if comic book readers are too sophisticated to swallow his B.S., he can still keep shoveling it profitably for the Atlantic.

How Black Lives Matter Celebrated Mother’s Day

Here’s how a moonbat movement that associates blackness with criminality and advocates both in tandem celebrates Mother’s Day:

[A lawbreaker named Tanisha] Bynum was one of hundreds of black women bailed out of jail for Mama’s Bail Out Day, a Mother’s Day campaign orchestrated by more than a dozen groups affiliated with Black Lives Matter. So far, social justice groups like Color of Change and Southerners on New Ground … have raised more than $550,000 to bail out black women all over the country, with $345,000 going directly to bail money and the rest spent on local organizing efforts and services for the people who have been bailed out. The Mother’s Day effort is meant to call attention to how the money bail system (in which an arrested person is kept in jail awaiting trial unless they can pay a hefty bail) disproportionately affects black families and communities.

The solution of course is not to break fewer laws, but to do away with bail so that criminals can run loose until they are convicted.

FBI Investigation Confirms That Black Lives Matter and Fellow Travelers Are Getting Police Officers Killed

An FBI investigation confirms what we already knew. Black Lives Matter rhetoric, as well as the amplification it receives from the fellow-traveling liberal media and Democrat politicians, is getting police officers killed:

An internal FBI investigation into the spike of attacks on law enforcement has determined that revenge, inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, the media’s assault on police shootings, and criticism from politicians, … motivates a “majority” of those targeting cops.

Sometimes anti-police violence results from the “defiance and hostility displayed by assailants toward law enforcement [that] appears to be the new norm.” Other times, criminals explicitly want to kill cops.

“The assailants inspired by social and/or political reasons believed that attacking police officers was their way to ‘get justice’ for those who had been, in their view, unjustly killed by law enforcement,” said the report. In two horrific assassinations of police, the report said that “the assailants said they were influenced by the Black Lives Matter movement.”

The “mainstream” media, which validates and amplifies even the most sociopathic BLM propaganda, has blood on its hands, as do pandering politicians like Obama.

The irresponsible rhetoric and lack of official support are making it impossible to police black neighborhoods effectively.

The result [of the propaganda war against police] has been a “chill wind” on law enforcement, and a somewhat understandable pull back by cops in dangerous situations, since even top officials, including former President Obama, have been critical.

Consequently, certain communities are becoming deadlier both for the police and for the law-abiding people the police are there to protect. Since neither of these groups is favored by the liberals who run the media, schools, courts, and big city municipal governments, the favorable portrayal of Black Lives Matter and its malevolent message will continue.

The FBI report is available here.

Black Lives Matter Toronto Cofounder Yusra Khogali Explains Why Whites Are Subhuman

When it comes to their feelings toward whites, no one is more racist than anti-racists of the Social Justice Warrior stripe. Black Lives Matter Toronto cofounder Yusra Khogali is a case in point.

According to Yusra, even the nauseatingly politically correct Justin Trudeau is a “white supremacist terrorist.” A year ago she tweeted, “Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.”

While these remarks alarmed many Canadians, they pale in comparison to a statement numerous sources forwarded to the Sun that Khogali appears to have posted on Facebook in late 2015.

“whiteness is not humxness,” the statement begins. “infact, white skin is sub-humxn.” The post goes on to present a genetics-based argument centred on melanin and enzyme.

If you think this mentality is appalling, consider the depravity of Caucasians who buy into it by walking around in Black Lives Matter shirts.
