I’m getting very tired of the bigoted idiots of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. Today they disrupted shopping on Chicago’s ‘Magnificent Mile’.
Thousands of people marched on Chicago’s most prestigious shopping street on Friday, disrupting business on one of the busiest U.S. retail days, to protest the shooting death of a black teenager by a white policeman and the city’s handling of the case.
About 2,000 protesters, some holding signs reading “Stop Police Terror” gathered in a cold drizzle for the march on Chicago’s “Magnificent Mile,” which closed the major city street of Michigan Avenue to traffic on the traditional “Black Friday” shopping day after the Thanksgiving holiday,
Organizers said the rally, led by activist-politician the Rev. Jesse Jackson and several state elected officials, was a show of outrage over the October 2014 death of Laquan McDonald, 17, and what they see as racial bias in U.S. policing.
There’s more at the link.
I want to know where those same protesters were when Tyshawn Lee was murdered in Chicago last month. Where were they when 82 were shot and 14 killed (almost all of them black) over the Fourth of July weekend in Chicago last year? Where were they after the October weekend when six people (most of them black) were shot in Philadelphia? Where were they in Georgia during the first decade of the 21st century, when well over 11,000 people (most of them black) died a violent death due to firearms?
The hypocrisy of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ demonstrators – particularly the organizers – is sickening. They don’t really give a damn about black – or any other – lives. If they did, they’d be protesting every senseless, pointless, criminally violent black death, and doing all they could to resolve the problem. Instead, they protest only those deaths from which they believe they can make political or social capital. I despise them for their cynical opportunism and lack of true conscience. The truth is not in them.
"I despise them for their cynical opportunism and lack of true conscience. The truth is not in them."
Truly stated, sir.
I remember a quote by Kevin (?) Trudeau, "Everything is always all about the money." (Or something close to that.)
The Reverend Jesse Jackson is a minster of the gospel of high finance. His finances. For him, it's all about money. I would hate to be him when he stands before Christ for his final judgment. He has many lies to answer for.
The question I ask is why the Church lets Fr. Mike Pfleger pull the crap he's instigated in Chicago over the years? He got sumthin' on the Cardinal? Srsly.
Apparently BLM (which to me will always be the Bureau of Land Management) organizers are irked because the Rev and RCP (Revolutionary Communist Party) took over the march for their own benefit. Imagine that. Apparently the municipal Christmas tree is also unjust (they tried to pull the lights off of it at an earlier protest) and Christmas is just for whitey (according to L. Farrakhan).
Meanwhile, blacks and other People of Color are dying almost daily and the activists can't be bothered to care. Grrrrrrrrr.
Saw video of a man being shot by the Chicago police. Might be the incident being protested. My immediate reaction was 'Why are you walking down the middle of the street? Why are you anywhere near those police cars? WTF is the matter with you?' And then he got shot. I think I'm missing something here, something important.
Interactions between white officers and black citizens seem to cause a disproportionate share of 'incidents'. Why are there not more black officers?
One of the reasons why black/poc activists don't care about black-black violence is because they'd be expected to clean their own houses, and own up to the cultural rot that they're feeding the young.
OTOH, white-black/poc violence means they can blame "the man" and divert attention away from their own cultural failings. IMHO, this seems to be less successful more recently as people begin to ask simple questions.
"when well over 11,000 people (most of them black) died a violent death due to firearms?"
No, their death was due to other people killing them by pointing firearms at them and pulling the trigger…….not due to firearms.
Non sequitur perhaps, but every time I see "BLM" when it references that despicable, pathetic, callow, vomitous bunch of racist imbeciles, I can't help but think "Brainless, Lackwitted Morons! Of course!" 😛 (Bigoted, Lackwitted Morons works too)
