“Some” black lives matters…others not so much…
With liberals, pointing out hypocrisy is kinda like shooting fish in a barrel. You see, a black police officer killed in the line of duty was just laid to rest. Were the “Black Lives Matters” protesters there? Nope.
Where are the “Black Lives Matter” protesters to protest all of the black babies aborted daily? Where are the “Black Lives Matter” protesters protesting the black Christians slain by Muslims in Africa? Where are the “Black Lives Matter” protesters to protest the 93% of blacks killed at the hands of other blacks? Hmm.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, 93 percent of black homicides were indeed committed by other blacks between 1980 and 2008. In 2012, the most recent data posted on the web, the figure was 91 percent. This overlooks many deaths because it’s only possible to gather this information when a crime leads to a conviction and some cases are never solved.(1)
In researching for this piece I was sorta’ shocked, sorta’ not to find an article on “Black Lives Matter” in the online “International Socialist Review”. I kid you not.
Here’s a bit from their perspective:
The strength of today’s Ferguson-inspired movement can be gauged in a number of ways. For one, the movement has been militant from its inception. One of the movement’s most popular refrains in street protests and social media is “shut it down!” Beyond a rhetorical slogan, this has found expression in the real world as activists in dozens of cities have marched onto highways to disrupt traffic; linked arms across railroad tracks to stop trains; sat down in urban intersections; delayed sporting events; and temporarily occupied shopping malls, major retail stores, police departments, and city halls. Activists have concluded en masse that anti-Black racism is a systemic problem that should be confronted through the disruption of work, commuter travel, commerce, and other circuits of the daily functioning of US society.
Nice guys huh?
Shockingly there is a photograph of an angry black protester on the piece. Why is George Soros pouring money into the Ferguson area to foment discord? Duh. “A house divided cannot stand” folks.
Soros, Obama, Holder, Sharpton and Jackson need to be called out for what they are, they are “home-wreckers” and the home just happens to be our country. Are we going to allow this nonsense to destroy us, or are we going to take our country back?
