Black Lives Matter

Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization specializing in violent and destructive protests over perceived injustices at the hands of allegedly racist cops.  The purpose of the rioting seemed at first to be the destabilization of the country, and an attempt to influence the 2020 presidential election by blaming the violence on President Trump.  But then the Democratic Party's 2020 national convention strangely made no mention of the riots.  Days later, the Republican national convention brought the riots into focus, and the Democrats quickly realized they had made a mistake by ignoring, or in some cases, actively supporting the rioters.  Now BLM is a political hot potato.

BLM rioters are not all black.  Many of them are young, white, apparently affluent, and very angry about something.  Most likely they hate America after having sat through at least 12 years of public school indoctrination.

The Democrats and the Rise of Racial Radicalism.  The new wave of radicalism was sparked by George Zimmerman's killing of Trayvon Martin in 2012, the police killing of Eric Garner in Staten Island and Michael Brown, Jr. in Ferguson, Missouri in the summer of 2014 and climaxed with the murder of George Floyd in 2020 in Minneapolis.  These were, of course, not the first instances of police brutality against blacks, but they occurred in the era of smart phones and social media.  Floyd's murder was captured on a smartphone and the video became viral.  The group at the forefront of the protests was Black Lives Matter, which had originated as three women's twitter hashtag in the wake of Zimmerman's acquittal.  In 2014, BLM's founders created the Movement for Black Lives.  Its platform championed defunding of the police and "an end of public jails, detention centers, youth facilities and prisons as we know them."  It called for racial reparations.  It demanded the federal government create a new welfare system specifically for black people.  It would include a "guaranteed minimum livable income" for black people, "full and free access to higher and technical education, and "corporate and government reparations" that would provide healthcare and access to "food sources, housing and land."  The group won support from liberal foundations.

Political Activism, Institutional Failure, and Anti-Intellectualism in America.  BLM took advantage of an unfortunate death to step up its fight against Western society.  The movement exploited the sympathy that rightfully belonged to the civil rights movement, took the fight a step further, crossed the line, and ultimately joined the enemies of freedom; the policy makers did so because they are socialists at heart.  In the wake of the "10/7" atrocities, the organization of BLM showed its true colors by siding with Islamists in the Middle East.

The Racism of Black Lives Matter.  During the summer of riots that followed the death of George Floyd, a particular political belief among anti-police activists became a religious dictate among liberals:  that the only possible explanation for racial disparities among the victims of police violence was racism.  If you lived in a big metropolitan area in the United States, any other explanation was regarded as heresy.  It wasn't safe to ask whether the reason that so many more suspects killed by the police were black may be that so many more criminals themselves were black.  It wasn't prudent to wonder whether there were aspects of black culture that were driving criminality among black Americans — factors that may be distantly connected to America's long history of racism, but that were not racism itself.  [Paywall]

Fraudulent BLM activists hoodwinked the British establishment.  Following the police killing of George Floyd in the US, the Black Lives Matter movement was largely imported into Britain, with a rapid expansion of our own grievance industrial-complex.  This disastrous superstructure peddled the myth that the UK's social, political, and economic systems are deliberately rigged against racial and ethnic minorities.  This form of aggressive racial identity politics from the US — a comparatively youthful country struggling to get to grips with the legacy of slavery on its own soil and recent forms of segregation — fundamentally undermined the credibility of the British anti-racist cause.  I issued a warning over this in an article for this paper back in June 2020.  Promoting the concept of "white privilege" — in a country where some of the most materially-deprived and culturally marginalised communities predominantly belong to that race — was always going to lead to awful outcomes.  Yet public-sector organisations such as the BBC and the NHS, two woefully underperforming behemoths funded by the British taxpayer, time and again provided a platform for pro-BLM radical activists to pour scorn on one of the most tolerant, anti-discriminatory and pro-equality countries on the planet.

Admit it:  Black Lives Matter hysteria made fools of us all.  Remember the Black Lives Matter protest in Bristol?  The one where the mob tipped the statue into the harbour?  In court this week, one of its organisers admitted fraud, after £30,000 in donations from Black Lives Matter supporters went missing.  Those donors will be shaking their heads.  But I suspect they won't be the only ones.  Because, three years on, it feels like an appropriate time to reflect on what happened during that mad summer of 2020 — and to ask:  what exactly came over us?  We all recall what happened.  For almost a month, mass protests raged all over Britain.  Outside Downing Street, a policeman took the knee while on duty.  The Labour leader, and his deputy, posed for a photograph in which they solemnly took the knee inside Parliament.  Then the England football team started taking the knee, too.  In fact, they continued to perform this American gesture long after American sportsmen had stopped.  Hence the peculiar spectacle before the England v USA match at last year's World Cup.  The England team took the knee — but the US team didn't.  All of the above happened in response to a single event:  the murder of an African-American man by a white American policeman in the American state of Minnesota, 4,000 miles away.  The murder was of course appalling.  But how come such huge protests against US cops erupted in Britain, too?

The Editor says...
The article above was written by someone who apparently has not investigated the facts surrounding "the murder of an African-American man by a white American policeman."  The guy who died was already dying from a drug overdose when the police arrived, and it was never proven that the cop's actions contributed to his death.

Is It Okay for Leftist Charities to Accept Donations from Black Nationalists?  The Democrat party likes to argue that Republicans are the party of white nationalism and white supremacy.  That's quite an argument from the party of Nathan Bedford Forrest (D-KKK), Theodore Bilbo, Jefferson Davis, Woodrow Wilson, and Bull Connor against the party that came into existence partially due to abolitionism.  It's also quite an accusation from a party that aligns openly with a racist and black nationalist hate group.  In contrast to the left's pigeon chess (knock over the pieces, call your opponent a racist, and say you have won), I can back this up to the hilt with objective evidence, not from right-wing or Republican sources, but from Black Lives Matter Global Network itself.

Black Lives Matter: An Empty Slogan.  The status of Black Lives Matter as a credibly alleged race-hustling fraud against the trust of the American people was reinforced during the past week, as reported in "Wilkes-Barre man charged with nearly striking officer, selling crack cocaine."  A nearby crowd nonetheless took the suspect's side during the confrontation:  "a crowd gathered and began yelling, 'Black Lives Matter' and hurled expletives toward officers, according to court records."  The police in question arrested this individual because Black lives matter.  Crack cocaine is just as capable of messing up the lives of a drug-dealer's Black customers as it is of his Caucasian ones.  There are in fact roughly four drug overdose deaths for every homicide in the U.S. (100,000 versus fewer than 25,000), so police who care about all human lives will arrest those of any race who essentially poison their customers, again of any race, for money.

Black Lives Matter is just another racket.  [Scroll down]  BLM operates like all rackets do.  Firstly, they lie about reality.  In the case of BLM, they pretend that black people in the United States in 2022 can be killed at any time by the police.  They pretend that racism is a pandemic in this country and that everything and anything must be done to tackle it.  The effects of this work is there for all to see.  The American public has been misled about the real state of race in this country.  A poll in 2020 asked Americans how many unarmed black men they think are killed by the police in America the previous year.  More than a fifth of people who described themselves as "very liberal" said they thought it was over 10,000 unarmed black people in America killed by police every year.  Among self-described "liberals," around 40% said they thought that the figure was somewhere between 1,000 and 10,000.  The actual figure was around 10.

The Cathedral or the Bizarre.  [Scroll down]  The psychological sword of the state is the political formula.  A political formula is any thought — good or bad, true or false, crazy or sane — that convinces the subject to love, serve, and obey the officials.  For instance, the slogan "Black Lives Matter" is a political formula.  It exhorts us to support those forces, persons, and institutions that promote, or are purported to promote, "Black Lives."  Since such forces have power (otherwise, how could they promote anything?), they must be official.  Indeed, we wake up every day with these good messages buzzing in every dental filling — a weird condition, especially if purely spontaneous.  The slogan asks you to support a power — which need not be good or bad, true or false, crazy or sane.  It does not ask you to think about how well this regime works for you; indeed, it asks you not to think about that — unless, of course, you are "Black."

You might be a moron if ... Part II.  Black Lives Matter was founded on a lie.  One that ignorant NBA players fell for while they raised their arms imitating Michael Brown's supposed surrender to the cop that fatally shot him.  Michael Brown was killed because he was stoned on pot and went to grab the cop's gun.  A Washington Post columnist, Jonathan Capehart, himself a black man, was demonized for telling the truth and wrote:  "We must never allow ourselves to march under the banner of a false narrative," he wrote in his final paragraph.  "And when we discover that we have, we must acknowledge it, admit our error and keep on marching."  No one listened and the rest is infamous history.  The toadies in the blue states knelt before the BLM god, defunded the police and let the anarchists destroy the cities while the media ignored the havoc.

Black Lives Matter's True Colors.  It's been almost two years since the summer of violent Black Lives Matter insurrections and cop-hating crusades. [...] This unprecedented eruption of hatred and violence was fueled by a racial hoax claiming that there was an "open season" on black lives, despite the fact that there is no evidence to support this claim, whether statistical or circumstantial.  Apart from affirmative action, which was given a pass by the Supreme Court, and despite the false claims of the president, there is no systemic racism in America today.  If police departments, for example, were systemically racist, there would be massive lawsuits invoking the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which specifically outlaws institutional and systemic racism.  There are no such massive lawsuits because there is no systemic racism in police departments.  Although the accusation of systemic racism is the main currency of the Black Lives Matter hate campaign — and, shamefully, of the rhetoric emanating from the White House itself — there is no factual basis for this slander.  None.

A Decade of Deceit and Division:  What Trayvon Wrought.  [Scroll down]  Outraged by the [George Zimmerman] verdict, three Marxists "of color" promptly formed a group called Black Lives Matter.  Working their combined magic in Ferguson a year after George's acquittal, BLM and the media helped reverse an eight-year downward trend in homicides.  As a result of the so-called "Ferguson effect," 3,000 more Americans were murdered in 2016 than in 2014.  BLM was just warming up.  The multi-city mania BLM helped generate in 2020 — Minneapolis, Louisville, Kenosha — triggered a nationwide 30-percent-plus increase in homicides over 2019, the greatest annual spike ever recorded.  Had the media paid any attention to Los Angeles filmmaker Joel Gilbert's brilliantly researched book and film, The Trayvon Hoax:  Unmasking the Witness Fraud that Divided America, released in the fall of 2019, much of the death and destruction could have been avoided.

Support for BLM and BDS is Support for Hate and Violence.  We know animal abuse is wrong without input from the Nazi Party.  We also know that Derek Chauvin should not have knelt on George Floyd's neck, and that three yahoos should not have chased Ahmaud Arbery and then provoked a deadly confrontation, without input from an organization that promotes the following behavior.
  •   BLM has incited looting similar to the Night of the Broken Glass, the only difference being that those on the receiving end come in all colors and religions, as opposed to only Jews.  Police in Democrat-run cities have meanwhile been told to stand down the way German police stood aside during the Night of the Broken Glass.
  •   Patrisse Cullors, while speaking in her capacity as a BLM leader, denied the right of Israel to exist.  This is anti-Semitic per the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) and also supports the agenda of Hamas which includes genocide or ethnic cleansing of Jews.  BLM rallies have also featured anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic hate speech such as "Israel, we know you, you murder children too."
  •   The BLM website published the libelous accusation that Kyle Rittenhouse murdered two people, thus suggesting that it is okay to attempt strong-arm robbery (Joseph Rosenbaum), attempt armed robbery and aggravated assault (Anthony Huber), and chase somebody with a drawn firearm (Gaige Grosskreutz), and that the victims of these actions had better not fight back.
  •   BLM and its associates have also made it clear that they think it is okay to point a gun at a cop's head and menace a teenage girl while armed (or unarmed per Joe Biden) with a knife — and then they wonder why violent criminals of all races get shot by police and armed citizens of all races.
  •   Advocacy of arson, a felony that can create the same use of deadly force situations the organization protests.

BLM leader threatens 'riots, fire, bloodshed' in NYC if Eric Adams gets tough on crime.  A Black Lives Matter leader vowed there'll be "riots," "fire" and "bloodshed" if Mayor-elect Eric Adams follows through with his promise to bring back plainclothes anti-crime cops to battle New York's surge in violent crimes.  New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome debated the plan for a return to tougher policing with Adams during a contentious sit-down at Brooklyn Borough Hall Wednesday that was livestreamed on Instagram.  Although Adams found common ground with the activists on plans to fight poverty in the black community, the former NYPD captain said he'll be reinstating a revamped version of the undercover anti-crime unit that was disbanded at the height of widespread police protests last year.  "If they think they are going back to the old ways of policing then we're going to take to the streets again," New York BLM co-founder Hawk Newsome said outside Borough Hall after the meeting.

The Left's Adoption of Schrödinger's Cat.  The Left in America seems to be progressively drifting off into their own version of reality; riots are peaceful, counting legal ballots is a threat to our democracy, and vicious attacks on political opponents are meant to "heal" a divided nation. [...] The statement, "black lives matter" is indisputable for anyone with an ounce of humanity; no conflict there.  The movement, "Black Lives Matter," however, is an entirely different animal, and the statement not only doesn't align with the movement, it's outright contradictory. [...] If the BLM movement was actually in step with the statement "black lives matter," then the fact that over 90% of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks would be their number one focus.  The BLM movement couldn't care less about black lives, it only cares about its leftist political agenda.

GOP Bill Aims to Ban Black Lives Matter, 'Political' Flags From Embassies.  Republican lawmakers have introduced a proposal that would prohibit U.S. embassies and consulates from flying "political" flags, such as those associated with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, after a number of diplomatic missions displayed the BLM flag on the anniversary of George Floyd's death.  Called the Stars and Stripes Act of 2021 (pdf), the measure was introduced by Rep. Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.) and co-sponsored by a number of GOP members of Congress, including new Republican Conference Chair Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.).  "Our beautiful American flag should fly over our U.S. embassies around the world — not the flag of a political organization founded by Marxists," Stefanik said in a statement, referring to the reported links between BLM founders and Marxism.

Do Trump-Supporters Live in an Alternate Universe?  [Scroll down]  Racist whites killing blacks for no reason is as big a problem as nooses in NASCAR garages, as big a problem as racist attacks on people like Jussie Smollett.  Black bodies are piling up in some American cities, but it's black thugs doing the killing, not the police and not white people.  There is no political advantage in being concerned about these black lives, so they are ignored.  BLM is a Marxist hate group that does not even seek to create racial harmony.  If BLM worked to keep black families together or create better schools, that would be great, but that is not their true interest. [...] The violent mobs in the streets of many American cities are Antifa and BLM leftists.  Their "mostly peaceful" protests are the most costly man-made damage to American property in history.

Demonic Spirits Behind Black Lives Matter.  In this episode of Behind the Deep State, host Alex Newman explores the spiritual nature of Black Lives Matter, showing that BLM founders and leaders openly admit they are conjuring spirits and supposed dead ancestors that are "working" through them.  As Alex explains, the Bible condemns this as witchcraft, sorcery, necromancy, communication with demons, and more, all of which the Bible calls detestable.  The dark spiritual nature of BLM should have been obvious from the fruit of the movement: riots, destruction, death, burning, looting, hate, division, and even murder.  Now, these same BLM activists are training teachers to summon "ancestor spirits" into the classrooms with school children.  Obviously, this is a spiritual war.  It is time for churches to take their rightful place at the front lines of the battle.  [Video clip]

When only some lives matter, then no lives matter.  BLM is only a gimmick.  Just like all the other gimmicks in the recent past — like ozone holes or transgender bathrooms — it will soon be replaced by another gimmick, which the media will call a national emergency and an existential issue of the day.  The gimmick is never the gimmick.  The gimmick is always the revolution.  On the first day of the 1917 Russian revolution, a few years before Stalin assumed the role of an absolute dictator, Leon Trotsky — who at the time was a much bigger figure than Stalin — already told those who disagreed with him: "'You are pitiful, isolated individuals!  You are bankrupts.  Your role is played out.  Go where you belong from now on — into the dustbin of history!'"  Most of those people were soon killed because their lives didn't matter.  Trotsky didn't hesitate to kill because to a communist, some people's lives don't matter at all.

BLM Leaders in Their Own Words.  Paul Joseph Watson told us all we really need to know about Black Lives Matter 4 years ago.  Yet even now, hundreds of riots and $2 billion worth of damage later, many people seem not to understand that BLM is not merely misguided but evil.  So let's have Black Lives Matter leaders explain it in their own words:  [Video clip]

Black Appraisals of Black Lives Matter — Part I.  This new multi-part series focuses on the perspectives of blacks — conservative, liberal or libertarian — who appraise BLM and its agenda.  The following selection of commentary by blacks from all walks of life — actors, athletes, businesspeople, civil rights activists, clergy, commentators, physicians and politicians — demonstrates that black public opinion is not monolithic and that BLM does not speak for all African Americans.

Black Lives Matter's Cannon Fodder:  Its Own Allies and Supporters.  A 1965 cartoon shows a Communist Party Chinese official proclaiming, "We will fight to the last Vietnamese any U.S. Attempt for a Negotiated Peace."  Black Lives Matter has made it equally clear that it will fight to the last professional athlete, actor, and "ally" to achieve its proclaimed goals of "revolution," "change," and "transformation." [...] These manipulators are all willing to use and discard other people to achieve their ends. [...] The movement as a whole does not care about any lives that are not convenient to its cause.  It also does not appear to care what happens to its own supporters such as professional athletes, actors, the ordinary working people who support professional sports and theatrical productions, "allies," and also well-meaning peaceful demonstrators who get swept up in violence not of their own creation.

Barack Obama Is the Inspiration for BLM's Cop Assassination Attempts.  Barack Obama is the beating heart of the Black Lives Matter movement.  Obama's embrace of the false narrative about Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, helped birth BLM.  Obama began throwing law enforcement under the bus in the first year of his presidency when he blamed Cambridge police for a confrontation with a Harvard professor despite — as he admitted himself — having not seen all the facts. [...] Facts.  Who needs 'em?  By the time that attitude rolled around to Ferguson, Obama all but lit the match for the first riot fire.  The Barack Obama-inspired Black Lives Matter movement is all about hating law enforcement.  It always was, despite its adherents' protestations to the contrary.  This isn't a human rights movement that seeks justice to right some wrongs.  It's a virulent mob that wants to act out against the police.

How Cultural Marxism Is Grinding Christianity Down.  During a recent prayer session in support of Black Lives Matter, the pastor of St.  Xavier Catholic Church in New York City instructed white congregants that they must renounce their white privilege to help "transform the church culture."  Using the noble cause of racial equality as a fig leaf, Black Lives Matter is in fact a violent political organization whose Marxist ideology is anti-Christian — and anti-American — in the most profound meaning of those terms.  In many churches across America, cultural Marxists in the pulpit are quietly supplanting traditional Christian values with those of the hammer and sickle.  "Cultural Marxism" is the gradual process of grinding down Western democracies by subverting the pillars of their culture, the structures and institutions of family, religion, education, politics, law, the arts, and the media as they provide the social cohesion necessary to a functioning society.  Challenge the legitimacy of these institutions, and a capitalist society can be overthrown from within without firing a shot.

Who Is the BLM Global Network Foundation?  With protestors taking to the streets all over the United States to protest police brutality after the killings of unarmed Black men, the phrase "Black Lives Matter" has become synonymous with the movement.  Regardless of where you find yourself on the ideological spectrum, a significant percentage of those protesting have done so peacefully, but it's the violent protestors and antifa thugs that continue to get most of the attention. [...] However, the focus of this column isn't on that, but rather on something that gets very little attention, and that is the main Black Lives Matter organization, which was started by Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors.  Did you know there was a BLM organization?  Well, there is, and it's named Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.  Now, you might think the organization is synonymous with the movement, but that's not the case, so I want to be clear about separating the movement from the organization.

Analysis of the phrase, "Black Lives Matter".  [Scroll down]  Aside from progressive mayors, BLM rioters, and Dylan Roof, one is hard-pressed to find Americans of any political persuasion who behave like black lives don't matter.  In fact, conservatives take this statement to the next logical steps.  Black lives, White lives and Hispanic lives matter.  Unborn lives matter and police lives matter.  But by declaring Black Lives Matter, they are concerned only with black people who have been shot by police.  The justification for the shooting, or the lack thereof, or any other pertinent fact of a specific case, does not factor into their reasoning.  The black victim is merely a prop, brutishly exploited to peddle an anti-police narrative.  But don't posit to a yard sign prophet any of these seemingly a priori statements without first donning a face shield, because spittle will most definitely fly.  By insisting that all lives matter rather than just those of a single race, you are somehow the racist.

The Black Lives Matter Movement and America's Founding Principles.  The Black Live Matter movement is really two disparate groups.  One identifies with the idea that black people have been unfairly treated and discriminated against in society.  These BLM-supporters often wear the T-shirts, carry the signs, chant the slogans, and demand political and economic change.  These supporters are not part of the second group.  That is a formal organization that maintains a website with revolutionary goals, large amounts of money, and radical leadership.  The first group of adherents to the BLM message is larger and likely not aware of the radical organization whose water its members carry.  The second group is smaller and more disciplined and raises some fundamental issues that need close examination.  I refer to the first group as "BLM Supporters" and the second group as "BLM Activists."

Here Are The 269 Companies Who Are Supporting BLM & Antifa.  The full list is below and it includes at least one statement per company: [...]

The Organizational Structure of Black Lives Matter.  In the broadest sense, Black Lives Matter refers to a protest movement spawned by recent and repeated instances of black men and women being killed under apparently controversial to outrageous circumstances.  It traces its origins to the 2012 fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman (who was acquitted of Martin's murder) and to "three radical Black organizers — Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi."  The phrase "Black Lives Matter" is frequently employed to show opposition to police brutality, as well as in connection to other racially charged issues.  Used in this way, it does not imply affiliation with any particular organization.  However, a number of distinct entities operate to one degree or another within the broader Black Lives Matter framework, and they make use of the term or a closely related variant.  Two groups in particular — the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation and the Movement for Black Lives — appear to be networks of particular coalescence.

To Destroy America.  The protests that sprang up in the wake of George Floyd's killing in Minneapolis seemed like spontaneous outpourings of grief and anger.  They weren't entirely.  Though many who joined their ranks may have been moved by outrage at the images of Floyd's death, those operating behind the scenes have prepared for this moment for a long time.  Indeed, the leaders of the Black Lives Matter organizations fueling this summer's disturbances were trained by self-described Marxist revolutionaries who have long used the plight of black Americans as justification for overthrowing America's constitutional order.  They frankly admit that such "organizing" is the key to their goal of world revolution. [...] But who initiated this demand for change?  After the initial protests following Floyd's death, public outrage was channeled — by trained activists working from a playbook — into manifestations that often grew riotous.  The Black Lives Matters Global Network and Movement for Black Lives organizations have been the nerve center of the protests.  They have been laying the groundwork for years, carefully cultivating a network of groups that could organize protests when the moment came and amplify the message through social media.

The Sacking of New York City: 1970's Radical Chic Reaches the Streets.  How did Americans get to the point the equivalent of a Nazi salute is demanded of them by roving gangs?  The nation got here from there because a radical segment of the civil rights movement moved away from the nonviolent protests of Martin Luther King to embrace the violence advocated by organizations such as the Black Panthers.  We also got from there to here because of a class of elites that have supported and assisted the ideology embraced by radical groups like the Black Panthers and Black Lives Matter, who share almost identical goals.

What Does Black Lives Matter Want And Their Relation To ISIS.  BLM began as an important nascent organic movement and the phrase Black Lives Matter was coined when 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was murdered on July 13, 2013.  It doesn't matter how you feel about it, when Zimmerman walked away without any responsibility, this event sparked the BLM movement.  The next event was Eric Garner's death in NY in 2014.  Following this was BLM's involvement in the protests and riots after Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri.  The officer was again cleared but a settlement was made after a civil suit was litigated.  Once again, it doesn't matter what you think of those protests and ensuing riots, they were an organic response. [...] The true enemy of BLM, Antifa, and the DNC are the centrists and conservatives in America.  These are the enemies the DNC wants to destroy from public life.  What BLM considers conservative right begins inside the progressive and conservative end of the Democratic Party a little left of the political center.

Against "Black Lives Matter".  Although they operate under the banner of social justice, the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and its allies are a pernicious force.  The false narratives, the toleration of lawlessness, and the punishment of dissenters have left our society in disarray.  Americans of all races and political stripes should reject these tactics.  The problems with BLM start with its false claim that white police and civilians are systematically killing black people.  Allied media have promoted cases that seem to fit this narrative, such as the deaths of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, but the outrage is selective.  In a country as large as the United States, reporters can find individual incidents to support just about any narrative they want.  The statistics on race and crime tell a very different story than the one advanced by the anecdotes favored by the media.

Crushing the Barbarians Inside the Gates.  More and more Americans in denial are being forced to face the reality that their country is on verge of being lost, with the barbarians not only inside the gates, but driving policy for the rest of us.  When Democrat mayor after mayor bends to the demands of Black Lives Matter (BLM) to defund their police in the aftermath of violent protests, property destruction, and looting, locals freak out knowing that bad actors will be emboldened and violence will escalate.  BLM doesn't even try to hide that its leaders are Marxists and that it has effectively become a paramilitary wing of the Democrat Party.  BLM has received millions of dollars through the Act Blue online fundraising interface, the same portal used by the Democrat Party.

Democrats Dance with the Devil.  No one realized how weak the mainstream Democrat Party had become, or how powerful Black Lives Matter and Antifa had become, until they destroyed downtown Minneapolis.  Until then, they had done little more than make nuisances of themselves. [...] The riots that started in Minneapolis quickly spread to Seattle, Chicago, New York, Portland, and dozens of other Democrat-run cities.  Local authorities didn't know how to react.  After all, the rioters were presumptive Democrat voters. [...] Black Lives Matter and Antifa seem to have thoroughly cowed the Democrat Party.  Whatever they wish, Democrats shall do.  You want us to defund the police?  Sure.  Paint BLM "murals" on city streets?  Hand me a roller.  Don't want us to prosecute rioters?  Wouldn't think of it.  Looting is payback for long-overdue reparations?  Well, yeah.  Okay.  Democrats must surely worry about the optics of bowing to the rioters' will.

Black Lives Matter:  A Political Campaign Disguised as a Civil Rights Movement.  The Black Lives Matter Global Network touts itself as a civil rights movement whose purpose is to oppose racism and police misconduct.  So far, so good — there is not one decent person in this entire country who supports racism or police misconduct.  (I do not regard white supremacists, or their non-white counterparts such as Louis Farrakhan, as decent people.)  Its real priorities, however, seem to lie elsewhere.  Let's look first at what BLM is actually doing to promote civil rights and remedy the problems about which it complains. [...] Nobody has the right to obstruct a road or sidewalk, threaten another person physically, invade private property, vandalize property, loot, commit arson, or assault police officers.  You can't throw a rock at a cop and then expect an attorney to represent you for false arrest when he handcuffs you and reads you your rights, or for a civil rights violation if the cop reciprocates your violence with pepper spray or a baton round.  If you obstruct a highway, the question is no longer whether a cop can use physical force to remove you; the question is only how much is reasonable and necessary.

The goals of Black Lives Matter and its radical ideology.  The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, which self-describes as "an ecumenical, nonprofit research organization that promotes the benefits of free enterprise to religious communities, business people, students and educators," has exposed the ideology of Black Lives Matter (BLM).  According to Acton, the founding principles of BLM include a guaranteed minimum income for all Black people, free health care, free schooling, free food, free real estate, gender reassignment surgery, free abortion (already disproportionately high among African-American women, "27.1 per 1,000 women compared with 10 per 1,000 for white women," but apparently unborn Black lives don't matter to BLM).  Washington, D.C.'s local BLM chapter has even called for "no new jails" (which would likely guarantee an increase in crime, much of it perpetrated in Black communities — see the District's crime stats, see Chicago, see Los Angeles).  BLM also demands reparations and wants to create a "global liberation movement" that will "overturn U.S. imperialism (and) capitalism."  According to The New York Post, "Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are 'trained Marxists'."

Who & What Is Really Behind Black Lives Matters?  All of the media and many politicians are all behind the Black Lives Matters group (BLM).  I decided that I would research into exactly who started this group, what they strive for, and who is exactly funding them.  I was a bit surprised to find out what the power structure behind this group really is.  Part of why I wanted to find out who, what, and how is this group funded had to do with the fact that they do not really seem to care about all black lives.  For instance last weekend in the city of Chicago according to the Chicago police, 61 people were shot and 15 were killed.  Three of those 15 were children.  Have you heard any outrage from the Black Lives Matters group, are they on the streets of Chicago protesting, looting and burning neighborhoods down?

Black Lives Don't Matter To #BlackLivesMatter.  We need to stop pretending that the group "Black Lives Matter" [cares] about the lives of black people, police brutality, or anything other than hammering huge corporate checks and electing Democrats.  This sham of focusing on a dozen or so instances of unarmed black people killed by police (many of whom had cars as weapons) is an insult to the thousands of black lives snuffed out every year by other black people.  If you care about black lives you don't ignore the pile of bodies that could stretch around the globe, which is exactly what everyone marching, rioting, and dancing in the streets are doing.  It's pretty sick.  It's a great marketing gimmick — come up with a slogan that is basic, simple, and no one disagrees with it.  It's harder to do than you'd think, people make a lot of money doing it. [...] "Black Lives Matter" is brilliant in its simplicity, which is why it works and why leftists latched onto it.  But it's a fraud.

The Implosion of the Left's Language Circus.  [Scroll down]  Finally, "black lives matter" is an Orwellian delusion because the organization called Black Lives Matter does not prioritize the black community's problems over the general left-wing agenda, nor does the organization conduct itself as though it cares about all black lives.  In an interview with Terry Crews, CNN commentator Don Lemon stated that the movement wasn't designed to address the large numbers of black Americans killed in civilian gun violence; their only focus was on killings of black Americans by white police officers.  The organization has shown zero interest in pro-life black Americans worried about the effects of abortion on black communities.  The group does not exist as a real nonprofit but siphons its money to a liberal partisan group, while its mission statement prioritizes transgender rights, gay culture, the Sexual Revolution, and alternative families that lack a mother or father.  The hostility from BLM-supporters to the phrase "all lives matter" makes no sense, no matter how many times they repeat the tortured logic behind opposing it.  Activists accuse "all lives matter" of drowning out the particular hardships imposed on black Americans with too general a focus.  But the organization Black Lives Matter refuses to address many threats to black lives while taking on a plethora of left-wing agendas (not the least of which is getting Joe Biden elected), which are of tangential or minimal importance to black communities.

6 Reasons Black Christians Must Denounce BLM.  In a few short years Black Lives Matter (BLM) has influenced blacks more than black Christians have.  This explains the outrage over George Floyd's homicide by former officer Derek Chauvin, and the deafening silence over high black abortion rates and black-on-black murders.  BLM ignores real issues hurting black communities because black Christians do.  According to their own website, BLM wants to disrupt the "Western-prescribed nuclear family structure," promote LGBTQ rights and advance Marxism.  Sadly, few black evangelicals have the courage and knowledge to condemn BLM that seeks to undermine Christian principles.

Who Are These People?  Black Lives Matter (BLM), According to an August 15, 2015, published article in the Daily Beast; "Who Really Runs #BlackLivesMatter?" Activists Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi met together on July 13, 2013, ostensibly in response to the deaths of Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice and other blacks at the hands of law enforcement and simlar.  At that meeting, they termed the phrase, "Black Lives Matter," a term which captured the imagination of social media and soon catapulted it into a decentralized, political protest organization.  The question soon became how to move forward?  It didn't take long finding out.  At an August 8, 2015 Bernie Sanders campaign rally in Seattle, two women from the Seattle chapter shoved Sanders aside, grabbed the microphone, and addressed the crowd and decried Sanders:  "Bernie says that he's all about the people and about grassroots," a protester identifying herself as Marissa Johnson, told the attendees.  "The biggest grassroots movement in this country right now is Black Lives Matter."  Rather than having them removed from the stage, the old socialist acquiesced and sheepishly allowed them to rant about Michael Brown for four and a half minutes. [...] Black Lives Matter is a virulent anti-American organization.  Its founders, by word and deed are admitted Marxists that under the guise of social grievance seek to tear asunder the fabric of American democracy by violent means.

BLM's Star Will Fade in the Light.  In the aftermath of the unexplainable killing of George Floyd, America's elites rushed to endorse, and even kneel before, Black Lives Matter.  Academic institutions across the nation posted statements in solidarity with "Black Lives Matter" on their social media pages.  America's largest and best-known corporations followed suit and immediately reached for their checkbooks.  Their ensuing cash benefactions were so immense that the New York Times' Shane Goldmacher called it "a record-setting flood of donations" that "[remade] the financial landscape of black political activism in a matter of weeks."  The frantic pace at which elites pledged allegiance to the group caused Tucker Carlson to suggest "Black Lives Matter may be the single most powerful political party in the United States."  BLM's accession was meteoric.  Resistance to it was quelled with matching velocity.  Those who dared scrutinize the group were summarily crushed, canceled, and fired.  "Black Lives Matter enjoys almost complete immunity from criticism," marveled Carlson.  Anyone who withheld his blessing faced an inherent conundrum: the organization's name is a statement of fact.  In designating an inarguable truth as their title, the group set up an intrinsic, false dichotomy:  to deny the organization was to deny that black lives have value.  And therein lies the genius of the BLM brand — the group's name acts as its shield.

How Black Lives Matter's Hatred Of The Family Feeds Its Desire For Revolution.  By now, people are realizing that Black Lives Matter (BLM) is less an organization committed to improving the black community, and more a Marxist group exploiting racial tensions to push its agenda.  According to a recent poll, "70 percent of respondents think that the movement has not improved race relations, with 38 percent saying Black Lives Matter has made race relations worse."  After so much agitation and protest, BLM has little to show for itself besides fomenting chaos in urban America and coaxing millions of dollars from white elites hoping to expiate feelings of guilt.  Besides the lackluster outcome of its campaign, what has bothered people most about BLM is its core beliefs, which often stray from the concerns of many black Americans.  In particular, BLM opposes the nuclear family:  "We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and 'villages' that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable."

Black America:  Before Y'all Sign On to BLM...  BLM's mission statement says they want to destroy the nuclear family.  Rejecting BLM's war on the family, black former NFL star Marcellus Wiley offered these stats.  "Children from single-parent homes verses two-parent homes.  Children from single-parent homes are 5 times more likely to commit suicide — 6 times more likely to be in poverty — 9 times more likely to drop out of school — 10 times more likely to abuse chemical substances — 14 times more likely to commit rape — 20 times more likely to end up in prison and 32 times more likely to run away from home."  BLM's founders admit they are "trained Marxists."  These disciples of Karl Marx have launched a revolution against capitalism to implement socialism which will morph into communism.  Communism means elites dictate every aspect of your life.  They sucker you in by promising everything for free.  Their promise always falls short because someone has to work to produce goods and services.  When government confiscates the majority of what you earn to redistribute equally to people who do nothing, human nature asks why should you [work]?  Communist dictators live high on the hog while the people live on the crumbs that fall from their table.  Do you see anything related to George Floyd or empowering blacks in BLM's Marxist agenda?

Black Lives Matter Was Violent From The Start, And Media And Politicians Knew It.  The Black Lives Matter movement isn't new at all.  It's the same loose collection of good-thinking people concerned over police violence and violent, anti-police and anti-family radicals as it was when it first gained national prominence in 2014.  As a refresher, the group was founded in 2013, during President Barack Obama's second term and after the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida.  It wasn't until a rash of viral police-related deaths the next year that its national profile began to rise, including protests over the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, Eric Garner in New York City, and then the following year Freddie Gray in Baltimore and Walter Scott in North Charleston, South Carolina.  It was cheered on at the time by the media for all the same reasons it's being cheered on today:  Some of the viral videos and events convincingly depicted unjustified killings of black suspects by police, and despite the clear and radical politics of the founders, their name conveys an obvious truism.  Unfortunately, it quickly showed its violent and intolerant side then, just as it has today.

A Deeper Look at Black Lives Matter and Its Impact.  Standing behind vandals who attempted to pull down the bronze statue of Andrew Jackson near the White House last week is a loosely configured, increasingly well-funded network of Black Lives Matter activists bent on constraining and defunding law enforcement. [...] Groups across the country say they identify with the movement.  A centralized organization called Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, however, has more than a dozen official chapters in the U.S. and Canada — including the District of Columbia — with shared goals and objectives.  In an interview with The Daily Signal, a leader of the Black Lives Matter chapter in Denver said the chapters operate independently and pursue agendas that are particular to their location.

A Will to Overthrow the United States.  [Scroll down]  The other movement, Black Lives Matter, was founded in 2013 by three black women, Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors.  Cullors declared that she and Garza are "trained Marxists". The Black Lives Matter founding manifesto, published in 2016 (then removed from BLM website), describes the United States as a "corrupt democracy originally built on Indigenous genocide and chattel slavery" that "continues to thrive on the brutal exploitation of people of color" and that perpetuates "the ugly American traditions of patriarchy, classism, racism, and militarism". In December 2014, a slogan at a Black Lives Matter demonstration organized by Al Sharpton's National Action Network, was:  "What do we want?  Dead cops.  When do we want it?  Now."  If Antifa is widely rejected, Black Lives Matter is not.  Its name has become a slogan on walls, storefronts and restaurants.  The posters state:  "No justice, no peace." [...] The statement "Black Lives Matter" assumes from the start that, for the police, the judicial system and everyone else, black lives do not matter.  What is so conspicuous and tragic is that black lives only seem to matter if they were taken by a white person.... Sadly, when it comes to black-on-black violence, no one seems to care. [...] That the name Black Lives Matter is present everywhere, and that everyone seems to ignore or forget what the organization Black Lives Matter really is, shows that a violent, anti-democratic organization, which calls for the murder of police officers and accepts anti-Semitism and anti-White racism, can use threats, intimidation and destruction — and find public acceptance.

The agenda of Black Lives Matter is far different from the slogan.  Many see the slogan Black Lives Matter as a plea to secure the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, especially historically wronged African Americans.  They add the BLM hashtag to their social-media profiles, carry BLM signs at protests and make financial donations.  Tragically, when they do donate, they are likely to bankroll a number of radical organizations, founded by committed Marxists whose goals aren't to make the American Dream a reality for everyone — but to transform America completely.  This might be unknown to some of the world's best-known companies, which have jumped on the BLM bandwagon.

Black Lives Matter:  "We Are Trained Marxists" - Part I.  On the surface, BLM presents itself as a grassroots movement dedicated to the noble tasks of fighting racism and police brutality.  A deeper dive shows that BLM is a Marxist revolutionary movement aimed at transforming the United States — and the entire world — into a communist dystopia. [...] BLM's founders openly admit to being Marxist ideologues.  Their self-confessed mentors include former members of the Weather Underground, a radical "leftwing" terrorist group that sought to bring a communist revolution to the United States in the 1960s and 1970s.  BLM is friendly with Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, whose socialist policies have brought economic collapse and untold misery to millions of people there.  BLM states that it wants to abolish: the nuclear family; police and prisons; heteronormativity; and capitalism.  BLM and groups associated with it are demanding a moratorium on rent, mortgages and utilities, and reparations for a long list of grievances.  BLM leaders have threatened to "burn down the system" if their demands are not met.  They are also training militias based on the militant Black Panther movement of the 1960s.  BLM, which is not registered as a non-profit organization for tax purposes, has raised tens of millions of dollars in donations.  BLM's finances are opaque.  BLM's donations are collected by ActBlue, a fundraising platform linked to the Democratic Party and causes associated with it.  Indeed, BLM leaders have confirmed that their immediate goal is to remove U.S. President Donald J. Trump from office.

Exposing the Lies of Black Lives Matter.  Black Lives Matter (BLM) was established in 2013 by a trio of self-identified Marxist revolutionaries.  Striving to make white Americans "uncomfortable about institutional racism" and the "structural oppression" that allegedly "prevents so many [black people] from realizing their dreams," BLM contends that blacks living under America's "white supremacist system" are routinely targeted for "extrajudicial killings ... by police and vigilantes."  That claim has become an article of faith for the millions of American leftists who dutifully parrot BLM's talking points.  The remainder of this article is dedicated to providing hard data which exposes BLM's worldview as nothing more than a mountain of malicious lies.

Time to Expose the Fraud That Launched BLM.  On Black Lives Matter's website, the organization's radical founders trace the creation of their movement "to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin's murderer, George Zimmerman."  Had those founders paid any attention to the trial, they would have known that Zimmerman should never have been charged with murder, let alone tried.  The fact that he was arrested can be attributed to a stunningly blatant fraud orchestrated by the attorney who has been prominently milking the racial divide he helped create, Benjamin Crump.  As it happens, the one person capable of exposing this fraud is George Zimmerman.  All Zimmerman needs is his own Atticus Finch, an attorney brave enough to resist the howling mob and stand up for the truth.

4 Things the Liberal Media Won't Tell You About Black Lives Matter.  [#2] More than one Black Lives Matter appears to exist, but the one primary associated with its best-known founders and that receives the largest level of donations is the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.  According to the group's website, the organization has a national network of about 40 chapters. [...] In 2016, the left-leaning grant-maker Thousand Currents, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit group, became the financial sponsor of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.  As a result, the foundation doesn't have its own tax-exempt status and is instead a project of Thousand Currents that doesn't yet have to file what are called 990 forms with the Internal Revenue Service.  Thousand Currents reported $3.35 million in donations earmarked for the BLM Global Network Foundation in 2019, according to Capital Research Center, a watchdog group for nonprofits.

Black Lives Matter is a Modern Totalitarian Revolution.  Black Lives Matter is an embodiment of everything that the 20th Century dictatorships were.  The designated enemies may be different, and some of the alleged struggles may go by slightly different names, but underneath it all, Black Lives Matter is no different than fascism, communism, and any other dictatorial regime one can think of.  And the bad part about it is that at this very moment the popularity of Black Lives Matter in the United States is greater, according to polls, than any political party, and any religious organization or sect.  The Brown Shirts, Black Shirts, and Bolsheviks are all rolled into one, and they are here to overthrow our U.S. Constitution.  Eventually, Black Lives Matter will lose its appeal, and the players will grow weary of the struggle.  The regime will weaken, and when they try to invigorate their revolutionaries for a new fight in order to strengthen the resolve of the regime and its followers, they will find that all of their enemies are dead or in exile, and the problem can no longer be blamed on others.  However, it could take half a century, or more, before that happens, and in a Black Lives Matter America the damage will already have been done.

The BLM Movement:  An Existential Threat to America.  Black Lives Matter has taken America by storm.  Simply put, it is a radical Leftist outfit that seeks to replace capitalism with socialism, abolish the police (and let criminals out of jail), and looks to socialist Venezuela as a model.  Historically, BLM's antecedents reach back to the Black Panthers of the 1960s; in recent years it has drawn inspiration from the radical Occupy Wall Street movement.  The BLM movement was given added impetus by the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.  The Left mobilized upon Brown's tragic death in 2014, BLM and other radical groups promoting the false narrative of "Hands up!  Don't shoot!"--supposedly the young man's final words before he was, we were told, brutally gunned down by a racist white cop.  Destructive and deadly riots ensued.  Of course, "Hands up!  Don't shoot!" was One.  Big.  Lie.  Every black witness who testified before the grand jury stated that Michael Brown had attempted to force his way into the officer's police cruiser, assaulted the officer, and tried to grab his weapon.  Looked at objectively, Mr Brown was a thug who, sadly, paid with his life for the terrible choices he made; even the Obama justice department could not come to a different conclusion.

Black Lives Matter for Democrats — But Only During the Six Months Before an Election.  The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement took shape in the aftermath of the George Zimmerman incident in Florida and the subsequent Michael Brown incident in Ferguson, Missouri.  In both cases, the media narrative that dominated America's television airwaves and print journals proved to be one after another litany of pure lies.  The whole thing never happened as reported.  The sweet innocent 12-year-old boy in a hoodie whose photo was emblazoned everywhere was not the actual 17-year-old thug whom George Zimmerman encountered on the fateful day he was conducting neighborhood patrol.  Rather, that 17-year-old had grown to be suspended from school several times, had been found during a drug check with women's jewelry, silver wedding bands, earrings, and diamonds in his backpack, and had posed for some offensive photos that can be found online.  George Zimmerman, meanwhile, who had been described by the media as a White supremacist, turned out to be Hispanic, with a Peruvian mother with African ancestry.  Compounding the lies, a terrible police telephone recording of a George Zimmerman call about the incident, which initially sounded quite racist, was revealed to have been falsified and doctored by NBC to change its entire context and meaning.  As for the Michael Brown incident that gave life to BLM, that also turned out to be one lie built on another.  Brown turned out to be a bum who holds up convenience stores.  Rather than telling police officer Darren Wilson "Hands up — don't shoot!" he actually was wrestling Wilson for the officer's gun when he got shot.  A grand jury exonerated Wilson on everything and proffered no charges.  Those are the birth pangs of BLM.  Whole things made out of thin air, things that never happened.

Where Black Lives Don't Matter.  Black Lives Matter was founded in the aftermath of the 2014 Ferguson, Missouri police killing of an 18-year-old black American named Michael Brown.  Before the investigation of the fatal incident had barely begun, Al Sharpton, one of President Obama's most trusted advisers on race, rushed to Ferguson, where he helped spread an unconfirmed rumor that Brown was killed with his hands in the air while trying to surrender to the police officer who shot him.  With all due respect to the [...] protesters, "hands up, don't shoot" is political propaganda of the most poisonous kind.  As a matter of fact:
  •   Multiple witnesses deemed to be credible saw the killing in real time.
  •   Of that group, none was white; all were black.
  •   A lone witness testified that Brown had his hands up and was trying to surrender when Officer Darren Wilson shot him.  That witness was Dorian Johnson, who was with Brown when Brown stole cigarillos from a convenience store shortly before he was killed.  Johnson's testimony was deemed not to be credible by both the grand jury and the U.S. Department of Justice.
  •   Multiple other black witnesses, all of whom were deemed credible by the investigating authorities, testified that Michael Brown (1) charged Officer Wilson after refusing to obey Wilson's commands and (2) reached inside Wilson's patrol car and fought with Wilson for control of Wilson's service revolver.  Brown was shot and killed during that altercation.
  •   Wilson was fully exonerated by the grand jury and the Obama Department of Justice.
Black Lives Matter was founded on a lie.  I do not say that to be inflammatory — I say it because it's true.  "Hands up, don't shoot" never happened.

Must not be all that brief, if it comes in more than one part.
A Brief History of Antifa:  Part I.  U.S. Attorney General William Barr has blamed Antifa — a militant "anti-fascist" movement — for the violence that has erupted at George Floyd protests across the United States.  "The violence instigated and carried out by Antifa and other similar groups in connection with the rioting is domestic terrorism and will be treated accordingly," he said. [...] Empirical and anecdotal evidence shows that Antifa is, in fact, highly networked, well-funded and has a global presence.  It has a flat organizational structure with dozens and possibly hundreds of local groups.  Not surprisingly, the U.S. Department of Justice is currently investigating individuals linked to Antifa as a step to unmasking the broader organization.  In the United States, Antifa's ideology, tactics and goals, far from being novel, are borrowed almost entirely from Antifa groups in Europe, where so-called anti-fascist groups, in one form or another, have been active, almost without interruption, for a century.

Black Lives Are a Pretext.  Black Lives Matter was formed in 2013 by three self-styled "Marxist-Leninist revolutionaries," who selected as their movement icon convicted cop-killer and Black Liberation Army member Assata Shakur.  Shakur had fled to Cuba after being convicted of the homicide she committed when her car was stopped for a broken tail-light by two New Jersey state troopers.  Without any warning, Shakur shot trooper Werner Foerster.  The 34-year-old Vietnam veteran was lying wounded on the ground pleading for his life, when Shakur walked over and executed him.  Officer Foerster left a widow and a three-year-old son.  Black Lives Matter activists refer to the murderer as "our beloved Assata Shakur" and chant her words as a ritual, "at every meeting, every event, every action, every freeway we've shut down, every mall we've shut down."  The chant is this:  "It is our duty to fight for our freedom.  It is our duty to win.  We must love and support one another.  We have nothing to lose but our chains."  The last line is lifted directly from the conclusion to the Communist Manifesto, a document and war cry that has led to the murders of millions.

What are the Children Learning?  The BLM movement is merely an outgrowth of the Afrocentric curriculum which in the early 1990s was seen as the panacea to the difficulties that afflicted many urban African-American student populations.  The idea "behind Afrocentrism is that black schoolchildren can learn effectively only in an environment that recognizes and amplifies their African heritage."  In a monograph titled Alternatives to Afrocentrism[,] put out by the Manhattan Institute and the Department of African and Afro-American Studies at Washington University in St. Louis, such writers as Linda Chavez, Michael Meyers, Shelby Steele and others debunk this idea.  Chavez demonstrates that "Afrocentrists can summon scant empirical evidence to show that students actually improve performance when they feel good about themselves and their heritage, despite the conventional wisdom in educational circles on this point."

The Ten Most Hateful Americans and Why they Matter.  [#4] Alicia Garza is regarded by Fortune Magazine as among "50 of the most influential world leaders."  What did she do to deserve this highly questionable accolade?  She's one of three co-founders of Black Lives Matter, formed after the acquittal of George Zimmerman, a white Hispanic found not guilty of murder following the deadly fight in which Treyvon Martin was shot and killed as Zimmerman defended himself from assault.  Garza calls BLM "an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise."  Oh, she also maintains that blacks face "deadly oppression" and that "extrajudicial killings" of blacks is a regular feature of our society.  She claims "Blacks are uniquely, systematically, and savagely targeted by the state" and this has led to black poverty, "genocide," and mass incarceration.

Leftists Say "Black Lives Matter."  Their Actions Say Something Else.  Homicide is the leading cause of death for black males aged 15-34, and it's the second most common cause for those between 10 and 14.  Despite being only 13 percent of the population, African Americans make up around half of all homicide victims.  So when police become less proactive, blacks have the most to lose.  And unfortunately, that's something the left has incentivized.

The Corporate War on Free Speech.  [T]his same media weren't nearly as shrill about the fact that an alleged Black Lives Matter supporter blew away five cops in Dallas in 2016.  This was after BLM-inspired rioting and beatings across the country that were based on dubious half-truths peddled by the same media about a series of incidents that turned out to be much more complicated once the facts slowly leaked out.  Hands up, don't shoot?  He was just buying Skittles?  He couldn't breathe, even though he was able to say he couldn't breathe eleven times?  Assigning guilt is a slippery and often slimy business, but one might plausibly argue that the way the mainstream media has purposely sculpted sensational racial narratives has in some way led to, or at least enabled, acts of violence and even murder.  Despite — or maybe even because of — all that, corporate media stand firmly and proudly behind groups such as Black Lives Matter.

How Progressives Use Race as a Weapon Against Our Country.  [Scroll down]  Take the central claim of the most powerful racial movement on the left, Black Lives Matter.  This organization was founded by three self-styled Maoists, and has adopted as its icon a Marxist revolutionary and convicted cop killer, Assata Shakur, who is a protected ward of the Communist dictatorship in Cuba.  Not surprisingly, Black Lives Matter condemns America as a "corrupt democracy" and "white supremacist system,... built on Indigenous genocide and chattel slavery," and claims that it "continues to thrive on the brutal exploitation of people of color"; that blacks are routinely "dehumanized" and rendered "powerless at the hands of the state, ... deprived of [their] basic human rights and dignity," and targeted for "extrajudicial killings ... by police and vigilantes."  Black Lives Matter has been the chief organizer of riots in Ferguson, Baltimore, Dallas and other cities, inciting violence against police with the claim that there is a "war on blacks" and that the law enforcement agencies — headed in each of the cities named by African American chiefs of police — murder unarmed blacks as a matter of course.  This lie has led directly to dramatic increases in the number of homicides — mainly black on black homicides in 56 American cities, including Ferguson and Baltimore, where the murder rates increased by 47% and 60% respectively in the immediate wake of riots organized by Black Lives Matter. [...] Racist and violent, Black Lives Matter is an organization officially embraced by the Democratic Party, and bankrolled with tens of millions of dollars from Democratic Party donors like George Soros.

Black Lives Matter Gets Black People Killed.  Black Lives Matter has been accused of demonizing police and heightening racial tensions.  I agree with those criticisms, but the movement has an even more basic problem.  It threatens black lives.  Homicide rates have gone up recently, but the violence hasn't been spread evenly:  of the increase in killings last year, around a third took place in largely African American areas of Chicago.  Baltimore saw more bloodshed too.  Both cities would benefit from the sort of proactive policing that helped reduce New York's crime rates in the early 90's.  But thanks to #BLM, they're unlikely to get it.

A nation settles into depravity and madness.  In 2008, voters signed up for an untested junior Illinois senator who promised them racial harmony and a post-racial nation.  They got Black Lives Matter and a war on cops instead.

New York Times Sunday Op-Ed Praises 'Black Lives Matter,' But What Exactly Does BLM Praise?  Often times, BLM supporters say that individuals who promote radical economic ideas such as total reparations, free college for all minorities, and other quasi-socialist-communist policies are simply fringe elements of the group.  They do not represent the whole.  They assert that the group is primarily focused on anti-police violence[.]  But according to the Movement for Black Lives website, this could not be further from the truth.  The core element of this group is a desire for an overbearing federal government focused on wealth redistribution.  The Black Lives Matter movement website is very explicit in calling for large government programs that provide all costs covered for education, not just to black lives but to illegal aliens as well.

Immigration Rulings Continue Democrats' Strategy to Collect Votes.  The Democratic Party has long established itself as an "identity group" party.  It has divided the nation up into a list of groups of persons based on ethnicity and race and targeted these groups in their campaigns.  Slogans such as "black lives matter" are intended to influence voters into believing that the Democratic Party alone sympathizes with and will act, using government control of agencies and benefits, to improve the lives of those who are members of these groups.  These actions by the Democrats have a clearly defined and troubling theme in common:  the manipulation of groups of human beings into regions under Democratic control so as to build up and exploit their numbers.  In return, these groups support the Democratic Party and maintain its political power.

George Soros:  The "God" Who Should Be Jailed.  Black Lives Matter (BLM), which has become one of the most efficient riot-making operations, has been especially blessed with largess from the billionaire elites.  As The New American noted in a 2014 article ("Rioting for a Reason"), BLM was founded by Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi, three black lesbian Marxists "who idolize communist terrorist revolutionaries Assata Shakur and Angela Davis, as well as the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Movement."  Naturally, for Soros, that qualifies BLM for oodles of cash.

What Would It Take for Progressives to Reject Black Lives Matter?  If Black Lives Matter were conservative, it would already be one of the most discredited and despised movements in American history.  Can you imagine the elite Left's reaction to a conservative movement built on a founding lie that has incited riots, inspired shootings of police, and correlated with an astounding and deadly increase in violent crime in America's major cities?  It's the latter point that will leave the most enduring legacy.  Today the Wall Street Journal reported that 16 of the top 20 cities in the United States have endured year-to-date increases in homicide, with Chicago's murder rate reaching levels "not seen since the violent drug wars of the 1990s."  And this increase comes after 2015's troubling increase in murders.  Together, the 2015 and 2016 crime spikes have left hundreds of black men dead in the streets, with women and even children victimized by stray bullets.

Nietzsche and the New Ten Commandments.  The left's excusing of urban riots in Ferguson, Baltimore, and Dallas has been partially justified by supposed racism "in the DNA" of whites.  Well, even if racism were part of DNA (which it is not), how could any riots or murders of police officers possibly change anything?  Our eye color is part of our DNA, and all the rioting in the world is not going to change the colors of our pupils.  Nonetheless, the left has given support to Black Lives Matter despite its threats and incendiary chants. [...] Black Lives Matter leaders have been frequently welcomed to the White House and encouraged.  Police assassinations are surging nationwide.  Urban crimes, specifically murders, are proliferating.  Why?  The commandment "You shall not murder" is no longer believed in by many segments of society and by the left-wing members of our political class as expressing a true and absolute requirement of Almighty God.

When Media Lies Kill.  During nearly eight years of race demagoguing by Marxists in academia and the mainstream media, the politics of racial envy reared its ugly head Alinsky style.  This is somewhat ironic since these eight years have been under the administration of our first black president Barack Obama whose election was viewed as evidence of a post-racial America.  Once the media lied about the Brown incident by spreading the debunked tale that he had his hands up before the shooting, the Black Lives Matter movement was born — funded in great part by the naive, the stupid and the malicious machinations of billionaire George Soros.  The MSM has done nothing to correct the misleading reports or to confirm that many of the shootings by the police were justified.

The Real Power and Purpose Behind the 'Black Lives Matter' Movement.  Whatever legitimacy the "Black Lives Matters" (BLM) movement may have is lost in its funding from one George Soros.  Mr. Soros is the major financial source responsible for funding the leftist movement in America.  These left-wing groups supported by Soros have one [goal] in common:  to transform America.  Groups like ACORN and Occupy Wall Street are a disruptive influence in our culture and seek to divide and transform our society into a Marxist design.  Linked to this disruptive scheme is Black Lives Matters through Soros support and funds.

The 131 Black Men Murdered by Black Lives Matter.  Black Lives Matter was called into being to protest what the racist hate group claimed was the killings of black men by police.  Activists with the extremist organization have accused law enforcement of genocide.  According to a study widely touted by activists, 300 black people were shot by police in 2015.  That same year 320 black people became homicide victims in Baltimore alone.  In 2014, 189 died.  And then Baltimore came under assault from Black Lives Matter over the Freddie Case leading to riots and the Ferguson Effect crippling law enforcement efforts.  The police became the villains.  Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake offered the racist rioters and looters space to destroy.  Along with the businesses and sense of security, here is what else was destroyed.  An additional 131 black men died in 2015 in Baltimore.  16 black women were murdered in both 2014 and 2015.  The huge increase came at the expense of black men.  The biggest bump in homicides, 49 to 99, happened among young black men aged 18 to 25.  This year's incomplete toll already stands at 68.

How The Cloward-Piven Strategy Is Driving The United States To Collapse.  The rise of BLM is difficult to trace because it seemingly appeared out of nowhere with a mandate to supposedly end structural racism, stop blacks from being shot by police, and police departments to conform to dictates that Black Lives Matter supports.  However, if one looks closely, there is no logical reason for Black Lives Matter to exist at all.  This is because not only has violent crime largely been decreasing everywhere but the ghetto, but also due to the fact that many of the token cases cited by BLM were instances where the police were justified in their decisions.  If an astute observer notices the disconnect between BLMs raison d'etre, the reality surrounding violent crime trends, and the specifics of these publicized cases, they may conclude that BLM only cares about getting attention.  Such a conclusion would be accurate, because not only is BLM an illogical movement, but it also exists solely due to generous funding from George Soros.  This is both important and disturbing because if an organization receives funding from Soros, it is because elites like him have a plan for that organization, one that even the movement's leaders may not even be aware of.  In Black Lives Matter's case, the political elite allows them to exist and treats them with kid gloves because they intend to use them to spark outright conflict between various segments of society.  Their hope is that if BLM burns enough cities down, takes over enough schools, and savagely attack enough whites, that whites will respond in kind, thereby triggering a race war that they could actively influence.  If an open racial conflict arises in the near future, and if it is combined with the massive strain and societal distortions created by illegal immigrants, our government would be powerless to contain it, thereby collapsing in the process.

The Clinton Record.  [Scroll down]  A bit of background information about BLM is in order here.  Founded by Marxist revolutionaries in 2013, BLM depicts the United States as a nation thoroughly awash in racism, sexism, and homophobia.  Demonstrators at BLM events commonly smear white police as trigger-happy bigots who are intent upon killing innocent, unarmed black males.  The protesters also taunt, and direct obscenities at, uniformed police officers who are on duty.  Their principal hero is the Marxist icon, former Black Panther, convicted accomplice in a cop-killing, and longtime fugitive Assata Shakur.  At all BLM events, demonstrators invoke a quote by Shakur that includes an excerpt from the Communist Manifesto of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

The Real Power and Purpose Behind the 'Black Lives Matter' Movement.  Whatever legitimacy the "Black Lives Matters" (BLM) movement may have is lost in its funding from one George Soros.  Mr. Soros is the major financial source responsible for funding the leftist movement in America. [...] Groups like ACORN and Occupy Wall Street are a disruptive influence in our culture and seek to divide and transform our society into a Marxist design.  Linked to this disruptive scheme is Black Lives Matters through Soros support and funds.  George Soros's funding of the BLM movement is part of an integration into a tapestry of organizations used to disrupt and weaken our society to engineer a socialistic transformation.

Black Lives Matter Exposed:  Beyond the Violent Riots.  When the African-American police chief of Dallas, David Brown, revealed on July 8, 2016 that the sniper who killed five officers and injured another seven the night before was "upset about Black Lives Matter," some observers began to realize that BLM did more than just arrange vigils where people could hold candles and sing, after police shot suspects of color in deadly confrontations, no matter what the ethnic background of the law enforcement officer was.  That same month, African-American Harvard economics professor Roland Fryer's study for the National Bureau of Economic Research, An Empirical Analysis of Racial Differences in Police Use of Force, challenged the very foundations of BLM, concluding that "police were no more likely to shoot non-whites than whites after factoring in extenuating circumstances."

The Lie That Launched Black Lives Matter.  The Black Lives Matter movement began as a hashtag in July 2013 immediately after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.  Although the movement would be reinforced along the way by any number of lies — "Hands up don't shoot" comes quickly to mind — not enough attention has been paid to the original lie, one that may eventually launch a thousand riots before it burns itself out, namely that Trayvon Martin was an innocent little boy.

A Black Sergeant Brings Obama and Black Lives Matter to Justice.  On a hot night in July, five police officers were murdered at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally.  Chief David Brown stated that, "The suspect said he was upset about Black Lives Matter.  He said he was upset about the recent police shootings.  The suspect said he was upset at white people.  The suspect stated that he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers."  Some Black Lives Matter supporters celebrated the murders by Micah X. Johnson.  Others claimed that the murdered officers had brought their deaths on themselves.  A Black Lives Matter supporter brandished a sign, "Killer Cops Create Cop Killers".  Below it was the hashtag #FTP which stands for "F___ the Police."  #FTP is a hashtag often associated with the hate group's anti-police activism.  Black Lives Matter draws its inspiration from cop-killer and domestic terrorist Assata Shakur.  The recent manifesto of the Movement for Black Lives named her and other racist cop-killers as "political prisoners".

Black lies matter.  The Black Lives Matter movement has been feted repeatedly at the White House and honored at the Democratic National Convention.  Hillary Clinton has incorporated its claims about racist, homicidal cops into her presidential campaign pitch. [...] Yet the Black Lives Matter movement is based on a lie, and not just the lie that a pacific Michael Brown was gunned down in cold blood by Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson in August 2014.  The idea that the U.S. is experiencing an epidemic of racially driven police shootings is also false, and dangerously so.

Genosuicide and its causes.  "Black lives matter" became the slogan of the anti-police protests that followed the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.  Do they?  Does yours?  Parts of black America appear determined to destroy themselves — black men, that is, rather than black women, who graduate from university at twice the male rate and hold more full-time jobs.  Call it genosuicide, the self-willed extinction of a people, and it happens all the time, especially when young men decide that to matter, they must assert themselves violently.

We Have a 'War on Cops' because of the War on the Family.  Black Lives Matter was founded after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the killing of Trayvon Martin.  However, the movement became known nationally after the death of Michael Brown at the hands of police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri.  After Brown's death, the supposed gesture and words of surrender by Brown — "Hands Up, Don't Shoot!" — became a frequent rallying cry for those protesting Brown's death.  However, after a U.S. Department of Justice investigation, it was concluded that Brown didn't have his hands up and didn't cry "Don't shoot" when Officer Wilson shot him.  Even liberal apologist Jonathan Capehart had to admit that, "'Hands up, don't shoot' was built on a lie."

The Profound Racism Of 'Black Lives Matter'.  "Black Lives Matter."  At first blush, it seems difficult to imagine anyone taking issue with the obvious, self-evident truth articulated by those three simple words.  But when we peel away the veneer of deception, we find that Black Lives Matter (BLM) is in fact one of the most destructive, hateful, racist movements in living memory.  Founded by a core group of revolutionaries who detest the United States and revere the nation's most devoted radical enemies, BLM is, at its essence, an ideological reincarnation of the Black Panther movement that flourished in the Sixties. [...] The lead founder of BLM is Alicia Garza, a young woman who candidly reveres Assata Shakur — the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, and convicted cop-killer whose 1979 escape to Fidel Castro's Cuba was facilitated by the Weather Underground Organization and the Black Liberation Army.  Others whom Garza praises for their "extraordinary" accomplishments include Angela Davis (a Marxist and former Black Panther); Ella Baker (an avowed socialist who had ties to the Communist Party USA and the Weather Underground); and Audre Lorde (a black Marxist lesbian feminist).

Black Vanderbilt professor says Black Lives Matter movement is 'pure Marxism'.  A black law professor at Vanderbilt University believes last week's cop killings at a Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas should signify the end of the movement, saying it's a Marxist uprising that's become a "very destructive force in America."  "It's not really addressing the real problems affecting African Americans," Carol Swain, a prominent Christian conservative, told CNN, Campus Reformreported.  "It's misleading black people.  It needs to go."  She urged CNN viewers to go to the official Black Lives Matter organization's website to read "what they're really about."  "It's pure Marxism; it talks about state violence, genocide; all of those are buzzwords that are quite destructive," she said.

We Must Stop Surrendering to Leftist Evil Such as Black Lives Matter.  My fellow Americans we cannot continue allowing the Left to pull the same dirty trick on us to get their way.  First, they launch a media blitz promoting a false reality about one of their agenda items.  Then, the Left demands that we embrace their lie or suffer being branded divisive and haters.  For example:  Liberal media, the White House and Democrat talking heads are promoting Black Lives Matter's lie that cops are racist and routinely murder blacks.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Cops have saved tens of thousands of minority lives since the mid-1990s.  Stats prove that 93% of blacks are killed by blacks.  And yet, the Left is hell-bent on intimidating us into making the Black Lives Matter lie our reality.

The Obama Crime Wave Comes to Minnesota.  The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that so far in 2016, shootings in Minneapolis are up by an astounding 85% over 2015.  Other violent crime is up as well: [...] The increased gun violence is centered on mostly-black North Minneapolis.  What could account for an 85% increase in shootings?  Liberals predictably will blame guns, but there has been no change in the gun laws.  The only plausible explanation is a combination of the Ferguson Effect and the racial hostility promoted by the Obama administration and the Black Lives Matter organization.

It's Time to Designate Black Lives Matter a Terrorist Organization.  No analysis of [the Dallas] atrocity would be complete without noting the now-indisputable fact that every word uttered by BLM and its mouthpieces is an unadulterated lie.  The entire self-identified purpose of this movement — which is to demand "an immediate end to police brutality and [to] the murder of Black people and all oppressed people" — is rendered utterly fictitious by a single statement of fact:  Of all suspects who are killed by police in the US each year, 41.7% are white, 20.3% are Hispanic, and 31.7% are black — even as blacks account for 38.5% of all arrests for violent crimes, which are the types of crimes most likely to trigger a confrontation with police that could result in a fatality.  These numbers do not in any way suggest a lack of restraint by police in their dealings with black suspects.  They suggest precisely the opposite.  And that's the dirty little secret.  Evidence of systemic racism in police shootings simply doesn't exist.  Anywhere.  The premise underlying BLM's whole mission is a lie.

Rudy Giuliani:  Black Lives Matter is 'racist' and 'un-American'.  Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani on Sunday called the Black Lives Matter movement "racist" and "un-American" and said African-American parents should teach their children not to be fearful of police but of other blacks "who are going to kill them."  Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation," [7/10/2016] the Republican slammed Black Lives Matter activists and said focusing only on the deaths of black men at the hands of police is wrong.  "If you want to deal with this on the black side, you need to teach your children to be respectful of police, and you need to teach your children that the real danger to them is not the police.  The real danger to them, 99 times out of 100, 999 times out of 1,000, are other black kids who are going to kill them.  That's the way they're going to die," Mr. Giuliani said.

Only Federal Lives Matter.  Ask yourself this: if those police officers and sheriff's deputies who are being shot and killed were federal officers, and not merely local LEOs, and the killers were anything other than black, what would be happening?  What would have already happened?  It's simple to answer.  Were the victims federal officers, agents of departments like BAFT, the FBI, BLM, and so forth, and the killers other than black, Leviathan would be roused up in all its fury and would have directed its every minion and power at the threat, to destroy it root and branch!  Black Lives Matter would have been identified as an anti-government terrorism supporting outfit, but for that the dead and dying are local LEOs, not feds, and the organization has the word "Black" in its title.

A Second Chapter for Black Lives Matter?  While the death of a black teenager in Florida led to the creation of what became an international organization decrying police violence against minorities, the killings of hundreds of people on the streets of the poorest city blocks in Chicago go relatively unnoticed.  Blood saturates a Chicago media that is overflowing with violence and cannot report every one of the deaths.  Where is the outrage?  An African-American Democrat in Chicago and a black sociologist from Harvard are asking that question.  Where is the outrage?  Both maintain it is time for Black Lives Matter to expand its focus and concentrate on what is truly outrageous.

Black Lives Matter Is Living in the Past.  It is considered the height of sophistication to declare that "America doesn't want to talk about race."  I say it's time to retire this phrase.  Imagine being from a foreign country and hearing that phrase, watching a room full of earnest people nodding warmly, after just the first eight months of this year.  Freddie Gray, Walter Scott, Sam Dubose, Sandra Bland, the Justice Department's report on Ferguson, the Charleston shootings, Rachel Dolezal, Bill Cosby, Ta-Nehisi Coates's book, James Blake, and of course the Black Lives Matter movement.  This is a country that "doesn't talk about race"?  Let's face it — the assertion in itself is splendidly absurd.

Poll: Most black people prefer 'all lives matter'.  Two out of three black people prefer the term "all lives matter" to "black lives matter," according to a Rasmussen poll released Thursday [8/20/2015].  Only 31 percent of black people surveyed said that the statement "black lives matter" most closely comports to their own beliefs, compared to 64 percent who chose "all lives matter."  Seventy-eight percent of total respondents also chose "all lives matter," including 81 percent of white and 76 percent of minority respondents, according to the poll.

The Coming Confrontation.  The fascism of the "Black Lives Matter" group is there for all to see.  The one aspect of this group that is most troubling is that both they and the New Black Panther Party think they can intimidate whites into meeting the demands they make.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Whites will become angry over their demands and the administration's catering to their every whim.  You have some out there like the New Black Panthers calling for a racial war to kill all the "whiteys".  This administration has done nothing to relieve these tensions, and has in fact made them worse.  If "Black Lives Matter" what are they doing about the massive number of abortions of black babies?  Or is it only certain black lives that matter.  The killings in Baltimore after the riots, in Chicago, in New York, the gang killings in Los Angeles, those aren't mentioned, why?  Because the motive for all this is to make white people feel guilty, and cower in fear.

BLM organizer Shaun King:

The modern malleability of gender and race.  A number of prominent white people have declared themselves to be of a different race, apparently on the theory that they are transracial.  [...] Black Lives Matter organizer Shaun King has been facing allegations that, despite identifying himself as black, he is in fact white.  King has also claimed to be a victim of a hate crime perpetrated by supposedly racist whites, though his account of the incident has also been called into question. [...] Shaun King translated his racial status into a high-profile activist role.

Did Black Lives Matter Organizer Shaun King Mislead Oprah Winfrey By Pretending To Be Biracial?  An investigative blogger has accused Shaun King, a key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement, of misleading media icon Oprah Winfrey by pretending to be biracial in order to qualify for an "Oprah scholarship" to historically black Morehouse College.  The blogger says King is white and has been lying about his ethnicity for years.

Report: Black Lives Matter organizer and Oprah scholarship recipient who claims he has been the victim of a hate crime 'revealed to be white'.  A key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement who claimed he was the victim of a horrific hate crime in his youth as a result his race has been outed as white.  Shaun King, an author and writer who is one of the leading voices speaking out against police brutality on social media, has claimed he is biracial in numerous interviews.  King has said that his father is black and his mother is white and of Irish descent — but his birth certificate lists his parents as both white.

'Black Lives Matter' Organization Being Run by White Guy Pretending to be Black.  Remember last month when a white woman named Rachel Dolezal had been caught after lying about being black for 10 years and had to resign as head of a Calif. NAACP chapter?  Well, now we have a white guy who have been pretending to be black exposed as the main organizer behind the so-called "black lives matter" organization!

White Man Claiming to be Black Running 'Black Lives Matter' Scammed Oprah Winfrey for Black Scholarship Award.  Earlier today [8/19/2015] we revealed that one of the key organizers of the so-called "black lives matter" group is a white guy who has been lying for years and claiming he's actually black.  Well, now more info is coming out on him and one interesting tidbit seems to show he scammed Oprah Winfrey for a scholarship that was supposed to only go to a black kid.

Shaun King, activist for the Black Lives Matter movement, outed as a white man.  It's the apparent second coming of Rachel Dolezal.  Shaun King, a prominent leader in the Black Lives Matter movement, has been claiming to be biracial when he is actually a white man, according to a report published Wednesday [8/19/2015].  King, 35, denied the report.

Activist Shaun King says man on birth certificate isn't his biological father.  After coming under fire by a slew of conservative Web sites that claimed he lied about his biracial identity, prominent social justice activist Shaun King told The Washington Post Thursday [8/20/2015] that he is biracial because he is the son of his white mother and a black man whose identity he does not know.  The white man whose name appears on King's birth certificate, he says, is not his father.

News and commentary about BLM:

Black Lives Matter leaders doled out lucrative contracts to family and friends, new documents reveal.  Leaders of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation doled out lucrative contracts to family members and friends, new documents show.  The Black Lives Matter organization reaped $80 million during the George Floyd riots of 2020. However, the figure plummeted to under $29 million by the end of the 2023 fiscal year, the group's tax form reveal.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors resigned from the organization in 2021.  However, friends and family of Cullors have received massive contracts from the charity with a supposed mission to "eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on black communities by the state and vigilantes."  Paul Cullors — the brother of the BLM co-founder — received $200,000 in 2023 as Black Lives Matter's head of security.  His company — Black Ties LLC — raked in an additional $1.6 million for allegedly providing professional security services for Black Lives Matter.

As Civil War Consumes Black Lives Matter, $8.7 Million Goes Missing.  The left-wing dark money giant Tides Foundation raised more than $33 million on behalf of the national Black Lives Matter group during the George Floyd riots in 2020. Now, Black Lives Matter is suing Tides over its refusal to hand the funds back.  There's just one problem — nearly $9 million of those funds have seemingly disappeared.  From 2020 through 2022, Tides transferred $8.7 million from the fund to Black Lives Matter Grassroots, an offshoot of the national Black Lives Matter group led by Melina Abdullah, a longtime activist and professor.  But Black Lives Matter Grassroots reported to the IRS that it never received that money, and no one involved in the transactions will say what became of the funds.  These discrepancies have left charity watchdogs mystified, while legal experts say they could lead to massive fines and penalties.

BLM Co-Founder Loses Lawsuit Against LAPD.  Melina Abdullah is the co-founder of Black Lives Matter in Los Angeles.  She's also Cornel West's running mate in his run for president.  When she's not out protesting or campaigning, Abdullah is a professor at Cal State LA.  She recently made news for her opinion that Taylor Swift fans are "slightly racist."  [Advertisement]  [Tweet]  Someone reacted to that with sarcasm but Abdullah's response tells you a lot about her.  [Tweet]  Lately, Abdullah has been spending her time on lawsuits.  Last year she filed one against BLM Global Network Foundation and a consulting firm that she accused of siphoning off $10 million dollars in donations.  A judge tossed that lawsuit and ordered her to pay at least some of her opponents attorney fees.

Black Lives Matter co-founder takes LAPD to trial for 'swatting' prank response.  Testimony began Tuesday in the trial of a lawsuit brought by Black Lives Matter L.A. co-founder Melina Abdullah against the city of Los Angeles, with a Los Angeles police sergeant telling a jury that he ordered officers to approach the activist's home with guns drawn even though he was "70%" certain they were responding to a fake hostage situation.  The sergeant, James Mankey, one of the defendants in the case, told jurors he didn't want to take the chance of not sending the officers if the the 911 report of hostages inside the home turned out to be true.  Police later determined that Abdullah had been the victim of a "swatting" prank; she later sued the city over the LAPD's response to the incident, saying she and her three children were left fearing for their lives when officers aggressively approached their home.

Thuggish NYC BLM Leader Threatens To Beat NYPD Officer At Hearing Inside Court.  New York BLM leader Hawk Newsome was arrested after threatening to assault an NYPD officer at Bronx Criminal Court.  At the moment, it's unknown what exactly led to Newsome's clash with police.  Newsome co-founded BLM of Greater New York and threatened to start "riots" in 2021.  [Video clip]

BLM Leader John Sullivan Who Sought to "Incite Violence" on Capitol Hill Is Sentenced to Six Years in Prison.  Antifa-BLM organizer John Sullivan was sentenced on Friday to six years in prison for his actions on January 6, 2021 at the US Capitol.  Antifa-Insurgence leader John Earl Sullivan was arrested in Utah after the US Capitol riots.  As reported previously, Antifa protester John Sullivan was caught on video posing as a Trump supporter during the rioting at the US Capitol on January 6th.  Footage obtained by the Gateway Pundit from militant Black Lives Matter and Antifa activist John Sullivan's Discord server shows the so-called "civil rights activist" reveling inside the U.S. Capitol on Jan 6 as he damaged federal property.  Sullivan has maintained in multiple interviews that he regularly attends protests only to record what's going on, but did not actively partake in the insurgence in Washington.  This was a lie.  He is a leader of the Utah Antifa-BLM movement and was previously arrested in Utah.

SCOTUS Allows Baton Rouge Police Officer's Civil Suit Against BLM Leader to Go Forward.  In a decision that may have large ripple effects across the country, the Supreme Court rejected a First Amendment appeal, thereby allowing a civil suit that was brought against a Black Lives Matter activist leader in Baton Rouge, LA, by an unnamed police officer to go forward on Monday.  The brief order states that DeRay Mckesson's First Amendment appeal to the high court was rejected, and he must face a lawsuit brought by the officer who was injured during a 2016 protest after the officer-involved shooting death of Alton Sterling in July of 2016. Sterling, who was black, was shot by officers after failing to comply with their orders and after they saw Alton with a firearm in his pants pocket.  Days after the fatal shooting, McKesson organized a protest where protestors blocked a highway outside of a local police station.  As police officers were clearing the roadway of protestors and vehicles, Officer John Doe (as he was identified in the filing) was struck in the head by a "rock-like object," which caused "brain trauma" and other injuries, according to court filings.  McKesson did not throw the object, and it is undisputed that he never authorized or incited the violence.  However, the officer claims that regardless of whether McKesson knew of or ordered/incited the violence, his leadership at the event makes him liable for damages.

The Angry Mob Comes for Kyle Rittenhouse Again.  After spending days on social media churning up hatred toward Kyle Rittenhouse, an organized and planned mob of angry protesters intimidated, chased, and charged at people who attended an event at the University of Memphis where he was speaking.  The mob chanting, "no justice, no peace," an implicit call for violence, charged and screeched at people who attended the Turning Point USA-sponsored event for Rittenhouse.  The mob followed people who left the event to their cars.  Thankfully, police intervened and prevented a riot — or worse.

BLM and the media again make a martyr of a teen who tried to kill a sheriff's deputy.  On Saturday, a San Bernardino sheriff's deputy shot and killed a 15-year-old.  According to BLM and the media, the deputy slaughtered an autistic black teenager in cold blood.  According to known facts, 15-year-old Ryan Gainer's family called the sheriff because the allegedly autistic teen was terrorizing them.  Gainer attacked the deputy, who fired in self-defense.  A story from Britain's Guardian tips you off to how the piece will be covered: "California officer shoots and kills boy, 15, holding gardening tool."  Imagine a peaceful child raking the lawn when a sheriff drives by and fires.  However, even The Guardian explains that the family called 911 because they were afraid and that Gainer charged the deputy: [...] All are bladed tools that can operate effectively in both battlefield and garden.  Many people have been beaten to death with shovels and garden hoes.  When Gainer charged, the officer had a choice:  Kill or be killed.  However, BLM and the despicable media have their narrative, facts [notwithstanding].  For BLM, Ryan Gainer, who came charging at a deputy with a weapon of war, is the newest martyr, joining the ranks of George Floyd, Trayvon Martin, and Michael Brown, all of whom died while engaged in criminal activities, with Martin and Brown each trying to kill someone.

BLM activist Shaun King converts to Islam 'in solidarity' with Palestinians.  Far-left activist and onetime Christian pastor Shaun King has announced that he converted to Islam in solidarity with Palestinians at the start of Ramadan.  King shared a video Facebook of him and his wife taking the shahada, professing their faith, at the Valley Ranch Islamic Center in Irving, Texas.  'My heart is with my dearest friends in Gaza and I'm proud that we were able to provide meals tonight to thousands and thousands of families from the North to the South in Gaza and will do so every day of Ramadan,' he wrote in the post.

BLM activist says Atlanta [and the] entire nation are 'lucky' violence is not worse.  Atlanta BLM activist Mary Hooks said the city of Atlanta — indeed, the entire nation — is "lucky" there haven't been a lot more fires started in the name of social justice.  Following the arrest of John Robert Mazurek, who allegedly lit up eight police motorcycles last summer in protest of a planned police and firefighter training facility known as "Cop City," Hooks was asked if she condemns acts of arson.  A member of Vote to Stop Cop City, "a group of local, statewide, and regional organizations and individuals who are united in opposition to Cop City," Hooks replied, "Hell no!"  "Not at all," she stated.  "And if I'm being honest with you, Atlanta deserves more than that."  [Tweet with video clip]

Have the Billions Donated for 'Racial Equity' Made Any Difference?  Have any lives been improved other than the leaders of Black Lives Matter?  The amounts involved are insane. [...] Three and a half years since the murder of George Floyd and the ensuing racial "reckoning" across America, nearly $17 billion earmarked for racial equality has been granted by foundations since 2020.  But do dollars equal impact?

Not all Charities or Charitable Donors are Charitable.  In the wake of the death of George Floyd, the principals who incorporated under the appellation "Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation" collected about $90 million in donations in the years 2020-2022.  The group did transfer about a third of the money to black, trans, and anti-police nonprofits (including $4.5 million to charities run by cronies), but spent $12 million buying luxury homes for themselves and allocated another $22.7 million for "expenses."  Millions went to co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who had also scored a lucrative TV deal with Warner Bros. that ended with no shows produced.  Paul Cullors (her brother) was paid nearly $140,000 in salaries on top of the $1.6 million paid to his security firm, Black Ties Security, LLC. Another $2 million plus was doled out to board member Shalomyah Bowers and her consulting firm.

Can't make it up:  BLM activist "extremely sorry" at sentencing for spending donations on Uber, hair appointments.  A prominent Black Lives Matter activist and one of the key organizers of a 2020 protest has been sentenced to prison for fraud.  Xahra Saleem, 23, of Romford, Essex, spent over £30,000 in charitable donations for her personal expenses, diverting the funds from their intended charitable purposes.  She is getting two and a half years in jail.  In June 2020, Saleem — who changed her name from Yvonne Maina — played a pivotal role in orchestrating the widely publicized BLM demonstration in Bristol, England.  This event made headlines when the statue of the slave trader Colston was pulled down, covered in red paint, and dumped in the harbor.  After a police investigation into a GoFundMe page named "BristBLM," Saleem confessed to committing fraud.

Why Jewish lives don't matter to BLM.  Following Hamas's pogrom of Jewish people in Israel on 7 October, numerous Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists made clear where their sympathies lie.  Within days, BLM's chapter in Chicago posted a graphic that celebrated the slaughter.  It showed a paraglider of the kind used by Hamas terrorists to enter Israel from Gaza and murder over 200 young people at a music festival.  Below the picture, the caption read: 'I stand with Palestine.'  After the tweet was viewed millions of times, BLM Chicago deleted it and gave a semi-apology.  'Yesterday we sent out [a post] that we aren't proud of', it said, before re-asserting:  'We stand with Palestine and the people who will do what they must to live free.'  That vague 'will do what they must' presumably does not rule out violence.  Even after the climbdown over the paraglider post, BLM activists in Chicago disrupted a city-council meeting as councillors discussed a resolution to stand in solidarity with Israel after the Hamas attack.  The crowd rained down boos and chants, forcing mayor Brandon Johnson to clear the room.  The resolution eventually passed, but only after BLM-allied council members left the meeting in protest.

Mayor Bass and BLM.  BLM Grassroots, a national splinter group with 20 chapters, including BLM Los Angeles, issued a statement saying that it "stands in solidarity with our Palestinian family who are currently resisting 57 years of settler colonialism and apartheid" and that the attacks should be seen "as an attempt to tear down the gates of the world's largest open air prison.  When people have been subject to decades of apartheid and unimaginable violence, their resistance must not be condemned, but understood as a desperate act of self-defense."  BLM Grassroots is led by Melina Abdullah, the founder of the Black Lives Matter Los Angeles chapter and a professor at Cal State L.A. with a history of antisemitism that includes supporting Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, complaining about "more & more Jews invading campuses, causing islamophobia, racism, & intolerance!" and urging that "we must dismantle patriarchy! specifically Jewish patriarchy offending Muslims & controlling our economy & campuses!"

Coca-Cola Quietly Deletes BLM Support Off Website.  Senator Ted Cruz called out Coca-Cola for quietly deleting support for the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement from its website.  Cruz (R-Texas) slammed Coca-Cola on his podcast this week for supporting Black Lives Matter after the organization's Chicago chapter uploaded a photo of a paraglider with the slogan "I stand with Palestine" in a now-deleted X post, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter.  Following the October 18th broadcast of The Verdict with Ted Cruz, Coca-Cola removed its language from its website the following morning. [...] Cruz then took on X to demand an apology for all American's from the company for removing the paragraph without taking accountability.

The Intersection Of Evil:  Hamas, Antifa, BLM, Harvard And Barack Obama.  [Scroll down]  While Antifa conspicuously stays out of sight, Black Lives Matter, the darling of the Democrats, shows up in party hats and whistles, with "chapters across the country," Mediaite reports, "celebrating the terrorist attacks that have claimed hundreds of innocent lives in Israel."

BLM Supports Hamas Because In 2015, The Main BLM Scam Artist, Patrisse Cullors, Called For The Destruction Of Israel.  Black Lives Matter groups have come under fire in recent days for throwing its support behind "the resistance in Palestine" following the deadly terror attacks on Israel by Hamas.  But video has resurfaced on social media of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors calling for the end of Israel back in 2015.  "Palestine is our generation's South Africa... if we don't step up boldly and courageously to end the imperialist project called Israel, we're doomed," Cullors said in a resurfaced, eight-year old video from a panel at the Harvard Law School.  [Video clip]

Black Lives Matter Group Deletes Tweet Showing Support for Hamas.  The Black Lives Matter Chicago chapter on Wednesday deleted a controversial pro-Hamas tweet, but doubled down on its support for the Palestinian cause as Hamas launched a violent terror attack on Israel.  The BLM Chicago chapter posted a graphic online Tuesday that said, "I stand with Palestine."  The graphic also featured a paraglider with the Palestinian flag, which is notable because Hamas terrorists paraglided into a music festival in Israel and attacked the attendees.

BLM Grassroots Aligns Itself with Palestinian Terrorist Group, Advocates for Decolonization of America.  Black Lives Matter Grassroots recently released a statement expressing solidarity with "our Palestinian family," drawing parallels between the struggles faced by Black Americans and those faced by Palestinians and calling for a decolonization of America.  Black Lives Matter Grassroots (BLM Grassroots) is a non-profit organization that supports Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapters, partnering organizations, groups, and people. [...] Hamas is a Palestinian militant organization that has been designated as a terrorist group by the United States, the European Union, and other Western countries.  The group's charter calls for the destruction of the State of Israel and the establishment of an Islamic state in its place.  Hamas has been responsible for numerous terrorist attacks, including suicide bombings, rocket attacks, and kidnappings, which have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of civilians, both Israeli and Palestinian.

Black Lives Matter Org Praises Hamas, Sparks Backlash.  Supporters of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement expressed distaste for the organization on Tuesday after a BLM chapter shared a statement supporting Palestinian people.  "I have been a Black Lives Matter supporter since the beginning.  That ends today," Natalie W wrote on X, formerly Twitter, responding to the BLM Grassroots statement.  [Tweet]

Black Lives Matter protester admits fraud over missing donations.  A woman who helped organise the Black Lives Matter protest that toppled the statue of the slave trader Edward Colston has admitted fraud after £30,000 donated by the public went missing.  Xahra Saleem, 23, pleaded guilty to one count of fraud by abuse of position after an investigation into a fundraiser linked to the BLM movement.  Saleem, who describes herself as a screenwriter, was a co-founder of the All Black Lives Bristol group.  She was named one of the 30 most influential under-30s in Bristol by Rife Magazine, a now-defunct youth publication.

How To Create Conspiracy Theories.  Touch an officer on January 6, and one sat in jail for months.  Club an officer in summer 2020, and the offender was likely to become certified as a member of the Antifa or BLM resistance, albeit acting up a bit during the "summer of love."  Unlike January 6, the violence of arsonists, murderers, rioters, and Antifa and BLM mobs resulted in 1,500 injured law enforcement officers, more than 35 violent deaths, nearly $2 billion in property damage, and 14,000 arrests.  Yet most of the indictments were dropped, or plea bargained down to minor misdemeanors by sympathetic leftwing city and state prosecutors.  Note that the 2020 rioters also targeted iconic and government buildings.  Rioters attempted to burn down a federal courthouse, a police precinct headquarters, an historic Washington D.C. church — all topped off by the mob's nocturnal effort to stampede into the White House grounds to get to the president.

Cross-dressing gunman behind July 4 Philly bloodbath that left five dead is BLM supporter.  The Philadelphia gunman who left five dead has been unmasked as a cross-dressing Black Lives Matter supporter who made chilling Facebook posts about 'evil spirits.'  Kimbrady Carriker, 40, shot dead four men and a 15-year-old boy in the Kingsessing neighborhood on the eve of the Fourth of July.  He is now in custody and facing multiple murder charges after rampaging through the streets with an AR-15, a handgun and wearing a ballistic vest.

Judge awards [a] Black church $1 million after [a] BLM banner [was] burned by Proud Boys during [a] protest.  A judge on Friday awarded more than $1 million to a Black church in downtown Washington, D.C. that sued the far-right Proud Boys for tearing down and burning a Black Lives Matter banner during a 2020 protest.  Superior Court Associated Judge Neal A. Kravitz also barred the extremist group and its leaders from coming near the Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church or making threats or defamatory remarks against the church or its pastor for five years.

Appeals court rules BLM can be sued for police injuries.  There's a case making its way through the courts in Louisiana that could potentially have significant implications in a country where protests have grown more numerous and often turn into violent riots.  Back in 2016, long before the Summer of Love, Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson was already stirring up trouble.  Following the police shooting of Alton Sterling, a Black man, Mckesson organized a protest that quickly swelled out of control.  A police officer was injured during the scrum and a lawsuit was subsequently launched against Mckesson seeking damages.  That case has been bouncing back and forth in the courts for years, but now a panel for the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled to allow the lawsuit to proceed.  At Reuters, columnist Hassan Kanu finds this turn of events to be disturbing because of potential implications for free speech and the right to peacefully demonstrate.

Black Lives Matter Leader Charged With Anti-Catholic Hate Crime in Canada.  The head of the Black Lives Matter movement in the Canadian city of Calgary is facing hate crime charges after allegedly impeding access to a Catholic school.  Court records show that Adora Nwofor, who is also a prominent abortion activist, was charged on June 2nd in connection with an incident that occurred on May 26.  The charges claim that Nwofor was "wilfully obstructing and interfering" with the use of a property "primarily used for religious worship and educational purposes."

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors is quietly dumped from Warner Bros.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has been quietly let go from her Warner Bros TV deal after producing no content.  Cullors, 39, signed the deal with the media giant in 2020 to much fanfare but it ended in secret in October 2022, it emerged on Friday.  'The deal, unfortunately, did not result in any produced shows,' a source told the New York Post.

BLM leader Patrisse Cullors [was] secretly dumped from [her] Warner Bros TV deal.  Warner Bros Television Group secretly ended a multi-platform deal with Patrisse Cullors, the former leader of Black Lives Matter, The [New York] Post has learned.  The Post can reveal no shows were produced under the deal, despite Cullors saying she planned dramas, comedies, documentary series and animated programming for children.  "The studio signed an overall deal with BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors at some point in 2020," said a source familiar with the studio's contract negotiations Friday.  "Deal expired at end of October 2022.  "The deal unfortunately did not result in any produced shows."  The multi-year agreement was to develop and produce original programming to include black stories across streaming, cable and broadcast platforms.

The Left Has Pushed the Envelope.  Black Lives Matter has just announced it lost millions of dollars in investments and ran up huge deficits.  The culprit was its former corrupt leadership.  Its extravagant spending, plush homes, and family hangers-on have nearly bankrupted the advocacy group.  It cannot account for the millions of dollars in corporate guilt and protection money it leveraged following the George Floyd riots in 2020.

2022 Tax Records Show Black Lives Matter in the Red — Heading Toward Insolvency.  Black Lives Matter (BLM) had an $8.5 million deficit, and its investment accounts lost nearly $10 million in value, according to 2022 tax records.  The non-profit has blown through 2/3 of $90 million raised since the summer of 2020 following the death of George Floyd, the Washington Free Beacon reported.  The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation's (BLMGNF) most recent filing of Form 990 paints a grim picture of BLMGNF's financial health, indicating a trajectory toward financial insolvency.  In 2022, the charity logged a $961,000 loss on a security sale of $172,000.

BLM now $8.5 million in the red as donations tank, leaders continue to spend lavishly.  New financial statements from Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation indicate that the group is running a tremendous deficit as donations dwindle but board members continue to invest in pricey consulting firms and expensive properties in the U.S. and Canada.  BLM became a household name in 2014 after the death of Michael Brown, a black teen, and the subsequent race riots that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri.  However, interest in the nonprofit skyrocketed in 2020 following the death of George Floyd.  After that, donations began pouring in to BLM coffers, and the group finished that year with more than $90 million in cash.  It was then that BLM officially transitioned to BLMGNF, which promised to create reliable group infrastructure that could better manage the influx of cash.

Student's life destroyed by BLM Activist who later admits she may have misheard.  A Black Lives Matter activist ruined a white student's life by claiming she heard her threaten to run them over — only to later admit she may have misheard according to the Daily Mail.  Zyahna Bryant, then 19, claimed she heard fellow University of Virginia student Morgan Bettinger threaten protesters by saying they'd 'make good speedbumps,' during 2020 protests that took place in Charlottesville.  Although Bettinger did admit during a student misconduct trial that she had said something similar to a truck driver that was blocking the road, she insists she hadn't said it as a threat.

2 FBI Agents Who Knelt at BLM Rally Gained Promotions.  Kneeling could be an avenue to rise through the ranks at the FBI, judging by promotions for two agents who did so in solidarity with Black Lives Matter protesters.  One of the two agents appears in a video for her alma mater saying that the FBI seeks a "diverse workforce" to ensure that the bureau is "looking like the communities that we represent."  Protests and riots linked to the Black Lives Matter movement swept the nation in the weeks and months after the May 25, 2020, killing of George Floyd, who was black, by a Minneapolis police officer who is white.  In some cases, law enforcement joined the protests.  At least six FBI agents from the bureau's Washington, D.C., field office were photographed kneeling during a BLM march on June 4, 2020, and were referred to derisively on social media as "Kneel Team Six."  The Daily Signal identified two of the kneeling agents through direct and indirect communications with former and current FBI officials.

Who Supports Black Lives Matter?  [L]et's look at who supports this organization, which supports in turn cop killers, Jew killers, vandals, rioters, looters, and a dictator who murdered countless Cubans.
  •   Joe Biden's team met with BLM's leaders in 2021, when this behavior by BLM was well known.  Even though BLM was not happy with the outcome, Biden's representatives should not have associated with them.
  •   Kamala Harris praised the "brilliance" of Black Lives Matter.
  •   Cornell's expensive Law School, as represented by then-Dean Eduardo Peñalver, went on record as supporting BLM under color of "racial justice."  Cornell's President and Trustees have yet to take corrective action for this use of a Cornell web page to disparage a member of its faculty and put the school into the camp of something that meets the ADL and IHRA definitions of an anti-Semitic hate group.  State University of New York Buffalo's Law School in-state tuition is roughly a third of Cornell's and you'll probably learn more law, rather than leftist ideology, there as well.
  •   Hardin-Simmons University, as represented by President Eric Bruntmyer, also lined up with BLM.
  •   Solid Blue New York City renamed a street for Black Lives Matter.

Reports of Hundreds of Thousands of Likely Illegal Donations to Democrats — Totally Ignored by Republican Party.  Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) sent off a letter to the Federal Election Commission (FEC) demanding an investigation into the hundreds of thousands of small donations adding up to millions of dollars given to Democratic fundraising giant ActBlue in the past two elections. [...] The Gateway Pundit was the first to report that ActBlue was raising money using BLM as its front group.  ActBlue is the Democrats' funding apparatus.  We know this from our early reporting and from the fact that BLM later admitted this.  In 2022 Black Lives Matter announced in February 2022 that the organization was deactivating its fundraising pages on ActBlue.  This was after the Washington Examiner exposed that BLM was still accepting donations on the Democratic platform despite claiming it had stopped amid questions about its finances.  The Daily Caller confirmed that ActBlue was using BLM to raise money.

The Democrat Party Reportedly Received Half Its Donations from Unemployed Americans.  The Gateway Pundit was the first to report that ActBlue was raising money using BLM as its front group.  ActBlue is the Democrats' funding apparatus.  We know this from our early reporting and from the fact that BLM later admitted this.  In 2022 Black Lives Matter announced in February 2022 that the organization was deactivating its fundraising pages on ActBlue.  This was after the Washington Examiner exposed that BLM was still accepting donations on the Democratic platform despite claiming it had stopped amid questions about its finances.  The Daily Caller confirmed that ActBlue was using BLM to raise money.  BLM is not a recognized non-profit organization and nonprofit organization (Thousand Currents) said it provides 'fiduciary oversight, financial management, and other administrative services' to BLM.  Candice Owen reported on the BLM — ActBlue relationship and was targeted by a bogus fact-checker.

Black Lives Matter Activists Executed A Shocking $83 Billion Shakedown Of American Corporations.  The Black Lives Matter (BLM) riots of 2020 were the largest and most successful shakedown in American history.  These "mostly peaceful protests" — which burned more than 200 American cities and wreaked more than $2 billion in damages — achieved more than anyone could have predicted:  changes in laws, private sector policies, and perhaps most importantly, a historic transfer of wealth to racial and leftwing causes.  As a result, American corporations gave or pledged more than $83 billion to either BLM or BLM-related causes.  We created a database tracking contributions and pledges made to the BLM movement and related causes, which we define as organizations and initiatives that advance one or more aspects of BLM's agenda, and which were made in the wake of the BLM riots of 2020.  To date, our data spans more than 400 companies and $83 billion in pledges and contributions.

Black Lives Matter and Related Causes Received Nearly $83 Billion from Corporations.  The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and related causes received an astonishing $82.9 billion from corporations, a new funding database from the Claremont Institute has found.  The Claremont Institute's Center for the American Way of Life explained the necessity of their report in an article published in Newsweek, where the Center asserted that the 2020 BLM movement was about more than just "rioting and destruction."  The Center explained that "The BLM pressure campaigns, harassment, and moral blackmail also amounted to possibly the most lucrative shakedown of corporate America in its history."

Claremont Institute unveils database tracking billions in corporate largesse to BLM, related causes.  The Claremont Institute's Center for the American Way of Life on Tuesday [3/14/2023] unveiled a database to track funding to Black Lives Matter and related organizations.  "This online dashboard tracks corporate contributions and pledges to the BLM movement and related causes," the group announced.  "BLM and its manifold extensions engineered one of the most successful grifts in American history, to the tune of $82.9 billion."  The database is searchable by contributor, recipients, and contributor location.  Athletic wear company Adidas gave $120 million to various organizations that promote black and Latino groups.

Silicon Valley Bank Pledged Nearly $74 Million To Black Lives Matter Causes.  Silicon Valley Bank might have been able to make good on $74 million promised to customers had it not pledged the money to leftist causes.  According to a new database by the conservative Claremont Institute, the collapsed bank donated or pledged to donate nearly $74 million to groups related to the Black Lives Matter movement.  Will Hild, the executive director of Consumers' Research, told The Federalist that SVB's failure on the heels of its left-wing activism "is yet another indication that SVB was focused on woke virtue signaling instead of protecting their customers' deposits."

Another Black Lives Matter Scandal Emerges in Boston.  Black Lives Matter is facing another scandal in Boston, as local activists face several new fraud charges stemming from COVID relief funds.  The couple, Monica Cannon-Grant and Clark Grant, were slapped with over a dozen charges stemming from their community-based advocacy group VIB, which they established in 2017. VIB and BLM partnered on many marches and events, especially during the 2020 election and in the aftermath of the George Floyd killing in Minneapolis: [... But] Black Lives Matter's troubles aren't just contained to the Boston area.  Amazon removed them from their charity platform last year.  It's to the point where the movement has no real leader for multiple reasons, not the least being that whoever is picked as king or queen of the mountain faces intense legal scrutiny.  Some top leaders made away with sketchy real estate deals.  Other local leaders were busted for voter fraud.

CCTV Shows White Children Are Rounded Up By Black Students, Forced To Kneel And Pledge Allegiance To BLM.  Ohio police are pursuing charges against students involved in a disturbing racial incident at Kenwood Elementary School in Springfield.  The incident, which reportedly occurred during recess on February 12th, involved a group of Black students allegedly rounding up white students and forcing them to kneel and pledge allegiance to the Black Lives Matter movement.  Several of the white students were also reportedly assaulted.  [Video clip]

Why is Black capitalized, but white is not?

Warning: The Anti-Police Movement Is Deadly.  In the Bay Area, criminal homicides increased from 295 in 2021 to 309 in 2022 — 50% higher than 2019.  Oakland had 120 homicides in 2022, a 60% increase over 2019.  And the share of murder victims who were black rose from 53% in 2019 to 58% in 2021.  In other words, in the two years after millions of Americans promised through their checkbooks, their lawn signs, and their social media updates to do everything in their power to protect black lives, the killing of African Americans skyrocketed.

Protests Get Violent in NYC's Times Square After Release of Tyre Nichols Video.  We reported on the video released in the beating death of Tyre Nichols, and the video was not good.  The police officers involved, who were all black, were fired and charged with second-degree murder in his death.  So, one would think that "justice" was being pursued.  Nichols' family reportedly called for peace, saying they didn't want any disturbance and were satisfied with how the case had been proceeding so far.  But some in New York weren't listening.  There was a march with folks carrying the signs of the Party of Socialism and Liberation.  People from the unaffiliated BLM group in New York, and their leader Hawk Newsome, were also marching.  If you wonder who is marching in most leftist protests, PSL is almost always a big factor; you'll see their recycled signs.  [Tweet]

Judge upholds Whole Foods's firing of workers who wore Black Lives Matter masks.  A federal judge on Monday tossed a lawsuit from three former Whole Foods employees alleging the grocery chain unlawfully retaliated against them for opposing a workplace ban on Black Lives Matter masks.  U.S. District Judge Allison Burroughs granted summary judgment in favor of Whole Foods, finding it didn't treat the workers differently than similarly situated ones who violated its dress code policy when the chain stepped up enforcement in mid-2020.  "This holding is not about the importance of the Black Lives Matter message, the value of Plaintiffs' advocacy in wearing the masks, the valor of their speaking out against what they perceived to be discrimination in their workplace, or the quality of Whole Foods' decision-making," ruled Burroughs, an Obama-appointed judge.

Black Lives Matter and the enduring legacy of 'defund the police'.  Over at the Free Press, author Leighton Woodhouse has an excellent article about the ongoing legacy of Black Lives Matter and the "defund the police" movement they helped usher in to cities across America.  Regular readers know this is a particular bugaboo of mine.  That's not just because it was a brutal issue for Democrats who jumped on the bandwagon in 2020.  It's mostly because it's such a shining example of how progressive enthusiasm for fundamental change can often result in complete disaster.  Committing to defunding the police without a plan to replace them with something better is one of the dumbest things the left has done in my lifetime and as such it should be used as an object lesson of what not to do for many years to come.

Virginia Tech Soccer Player Receives $100K Settlement After Being Benched for Refusing to Kneel for BLM.  A former Virginia Tech soccer player claims she was benched in 2020 for refusing to kneel for a pre-game unity ceremony supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.  She sued in 2021, and now the school has officially settled with the player, Kiersten Hening, who will receive $100,000.  Neither the school nor the coach, Charles "Chugger" Adair, however, admitted to any wrongdoing.

What Do You Do When BLM Attacks You in Your Car?  Anyone with a modicum of common sense understands that a person shouldn't try to block a road with his body and then proceed to intimidate and threaten the drivers he's forced to stop.  When push comes to shove, protesters in the middle of the road aren't going to win the battle against a two-ton vehicle, especially if they really make a person fear for his life and the lives of his passengers.  It's just a good rule of thumb, if you happen to be an Antifa or Black Lives Matter protester, to keep your big, dumb, non-caring, socially unacceptable [self] out of the middle of the street and try to actually protest peacefully for a change, and you won't get run over.  In December of 2020, Kathleen Casillo found herself in just such a predicament.  She was forced to stop her car near the intersection of 39th Street and Third Avenue around 4:00 P.M. CST, where she and her twenty-nine year old daughter were immediately surrounded and attacked by a howling mob of BLM "mostly peaceful" protesters, who jumped on her car and attempted to smash the windows and open the doors, for the purpose of dragging one or both women out of the car.  They were screaming, "White privilege b----" at the women as all of this occurred.  Fearing for her life and her daughter's life, Kathleen floored the gas and sped off — rightfully so, and in self-defense — injuring nine protesters (one seriously) in the process.  Who wouldn't, when trapped in the same set of circumstances?

When Was the Last Time That the Democrats Told the Truth About Anything?  [Scroll down] As the Black Lives Matter riots destroyed American cities across the land, with Democrat voters assaulting police, massively looting, intentionally burning vehicles and buildings, and occasionally killing anyone who resisted, the Democrat media declared that the protests were "mostly peaceful," even as buildings burned in the background.  Democrats declared their fealty to Black Lives Matter, worked to release rioters who had been arrested, and donated $80 million to the self-declared Marxist Black Lives Matter organization.  Democrat business executives and university officials declared their organizations' support of Black Lives Matter, making public declarations and flying BLM flags.  Democrats endorsed the Black Lives Matter slander that the police everywhere were racist and that they murdered blacks freely and in great numbers, libels that were endorsed by Democrat politicians across the land.

End of the Line for Black Lives Matter?  Candace Owens isn't Black Lives Matter's biggest problem this month; its own website and social media posts are.  These are not exactly new revelations because the information has been online for years but, when American Thinker readers help take it viral, it's the end of the world for this race hustling anti-Semitic fraud, and egg on the face of every organization and political figure that has gotten behind it.  These could claim reasonably, at least until now, that they didn't know, but now they no longer have this excuse.  They need to get clear of this impending public relations catastrophe immediately if not sooner.

BLM founder funnels even more cash into mansion.  We haven't checked in on what Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation co-founder Patrisse Cullors has been up to recently.  So how has she been spending her time (and her foundation's money) since her sudden resignation last year from the group she helped set up?  Try not to faint from shock, but she has been dumping tens of thousands more dollars into renovations and upgrades to the Los Angeles mansion she now calls home.  She also sold off one of the other properties that she picked up during her real estate spending spree, making a tidy profit as a result.

BLM founder Patrisse Cullors spends thousands renovating backyard of posh $1.4M LA home.  The controversial Marxist co-founder of Black Lives Matter recently completed tens of thousands of dollars in renovations at her posh Los Angeles home, including building a new plunge pool and backyard sauna, according to a new report.  Patrisse Cullors, 39, the former leader of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, also added a children's play area for her young son outside her 2,580-square foot three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Los Angeles' Topanga Canyon neighborhood, photos show.  The images reveal a deep plunge pool that has yet to have water added, as well as a small shed that houses the sauna.

Sharon Osbourne wants refund after donating $900K to 'scam' Black Lives Matter.  Sharon Osbourne wants her money back.  The former "The Talk" co-host agreed with Kanye West about Black Lives Matter being a "scam" when TMZ asked her about the rapper's recent antics, from his White Lives Matter shirt to his social media tirades.  "Well, we gave $900,000 to [Black Lives Matter], and I'd like my money back, please," she told a reporter.  Osbourne, 69, did not specify why she wanted a refund, but she did express confusion surrounding the outrage over West's headline-making shirt at his fashion show.  "I don't understand why white lives don't matter.  I don't understand it.  It's not my culture," she said.  "Everybody matters, don't they?"

Egg on the Face for Black Lives Matter Supporters.  Black Lives Matter, as led by Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF), is now collapsing visibly, as its supporters and indeed some of its leaders distance themselves from it like rats from a sinking ship.  Even as long ago as 2016, the movement was condoning and even encouraging Black people to threaten people on the street, commit arson, and drag people from cars — actions that can result in the justifiable deployment of the deadly force about which BLM complains. [...] It was known more than two years ago that BLMGNF was campaigning against Donald Trump while accepting 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money under the fiscal sponsorship of Thousand Currents and then the Tides Foundation, and with money collected via ActBlue Charities.  The objective evidence consists of BLM web pages, including one that compared Trump to a Nazi with a neck tattoo, along with an interview with Patrisse Cullors in her capacity as BLM's leader.  The issue is not what anybody thinks of Donald Trump because 501(c)(3) entities are forbidden to participate in political campaigns.  A recent lawsuit filed by BLM Grassroots Inc (BLMG) against BLMGNF and others now alleges, among other things, unfair business practices, fraud, conversion, and unjust enrichment.

BLM Leader Stole $10 Million From Group: Lawsuit.  The leader of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Shalomyah Bowers, was accused of stealing over $10 million from the organization in a lawsuit filed Thursday by Black Lives Matter Grassroots.  According to the Los Angeles Times, the lawsuit was announced at a news conference by Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles co-founder Melina Abdullah who said Bowers was a "rogue administrator, a middle man turned usurper" and used the organization as a "personal piggy bank."

Another BLM leader accused of fraud.  The New York Post reported that Black Lives Matter leader, Shalomyah Bowers, purportedly siphoned more than $10 million of donors' money.  A lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court claims Bowers treated BLM foundation funds as his "personal piggy bank" and acted as a "rogue administrator" and a "middle man turned usurper."  Bowers, who became head of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation in April, is accused of paying millions to his own Bowers Consulting Firm and diverting resources from a new group called Black Lives Matter Grassroots, Inc.  BLM Grassroots was founded in California in May by Walter Mosley, the lawyer who also drafted the lawsuit against Bowers.  BLM Global Network Foundation paid the Bowers Consulting Firm $2,167,894 in 2021, per federal tax filings.

BLM Leader Accused of Stealing $10 Million From the So-Called Charity.  A leader of Black Lives Matter is being accused of stealing $10 million from the foundation, using it as his "personal piggy bank."  According to a lawsuit, Shalomyah Bowers fraudulently siphoned over $10 million in "fees" to his consulting firm.  The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court claims Bowers treated the Black Lives Matter foundation funds as his "personal piggy bank" and acted as a "rogue administrator" and "middle man turned usurper."  It also says that Bowers led BLM into multiple Internal Revenue Service investigations and "various state attorney generals, blazing a path of irreparable harm to BLM in less than eighteen months."

BLM leader is accused of pilfering $10M from the organization by local chapters who say he used it like 'personal piggy bank'.  A prominent leader in the Black Lives Matter movement has been accused of stealing more than $10 million from the group in an explosive lawsuit filed by other organizers in the movement.  Shalomyah Bowers, a board member of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF), was accused of using the group as a 'personal piggy bank' in the suit filed in Thursday in Los Angeles.  The lawsuit filed by Black Lives Matter Grassroots (BLMGR) offers few specifics about the alleged theft of funds, but illuminates the growing fractures in the movement that took in more than $90 million in donations in 2020.

'Dystopian Myths': Paul Krugman Shames Americans for Believing BLM Riots Happened in 2020.  Economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman said it's wrong for Americans to believe widespread BLM riots occurred in 2020, calling it one of the many "dystopian myths" in the nation.  Krugman even went as far as to say the destruction in New York City "never happened."  "Well, first of all, there's the specific issue of the whole Black Lives Matter demonstrations, which a large part of the country, certainly a lot of the mail I get, people think that you know, lots of Manhattan was burned to the ground," Krugman told CNN's Brian Stelter on Sunday [7/31/2022].

BLM Activist Shaun King Used Donor Funds To Buy $40k Thoroughbred Show Dog.  Grassroots Law PAC, which the progressive grifter founded to elect soft-on-crime local officials, paid roughly $40,000 since December to the California-based Potrero Performance Dogs, according to campaign finance disclosures.  The payments are labeled for "contractor services," making their purpose difficult to discern.  But days after a $30,650 payment in February, King welcomed a "new member of the King family": an award-winning mastiff bred by Potrero named Marz.  King, who has been hounded for years by allegations of fraud, has not been accused of any wrongdoing in relation to Grassroots Law.  But the payments for a dog raises questions about whether the former Bernie Sanders surrogate is using PAC contributions the way donors intended.

Shaun King defends buying $40K guard dog, complains he can't get a gun.  Controversial activist Shaun King tried Tuesday to justify his reported $40,000 purchase of a hulking guard dog as protection from "white supremacists" — but failed to explain why his progressive political action committee picked up the tab.  In a rambling Instagram post, King also railed against strict gun control laws in New York and New Jersey, insisting they kept him from arming himself to protect his wife and kids from death threats purportedly made by "police, military snipers and white supremacist groups."  "I have to say some things that I've worked hard to keep private for the safety and security of my family," he began his statement.

As BLM Encouraged Looting Businesses, It Received SBA Funding.  Black Lives Matter, an organization whose leaders encouraged its supporters to riot and loot small businesses, received $30,000 from the Small Business Administration in 2020.  When the riots and looting occurred around the country after George Floyd's police custody death, a Black Lives Matter leader in Chicago defended the looting as "reparations."  In August 2020, as shops were devastated, Ariel Atkins said, "That is reparations.  Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance.  They're going to get their money back.  My people aren't getting anything."  The New York Post highlighted a small convenience store that was looted twice in 40 days in Chicago and may have to close for good.  Atkins doubled down and said that calling someone a "criminal" is a form of racism, the New York Post reported.

Republicans: To Win the Midterms, Hit Black Lives Matter.  Most of us already know how we are going to vote in November.  "Use Your Head and Vote Red" is a good answer to the other side's "Vote Blue, No Matter Who."  We know in advance how the elections are going to turn out in hardcore Republican and Democratic states and enclaves.  We do not expect California or New York to elect Republicans, nor are Wyoming and Idaho likely to elect Democrats.  All the other races will, however, be decided by the swing voters who hold the balance of power, and it is to them we must appeal.  Sun Tzu noted in his Art of War that one should attack what the enemy cannot defend and defend what the enemy cannot attack.  This is why we must direct our complete attention to BLM and its ties with the Democrat party.

Judge Sides With Home Depot After Company Banned Employees From Wearing BLM.  Home Depot stood up against the left and refused to go woke.  And guess what?  It worked.  A judge sided with Home Depot after the home improvement company banned its employees from wearing Black Lives Matter logos.  Administrative law judge Paul Bogas ruled that the complaint raised by the U.S. National Labor Relations Board's (NLRB) general counsel did not have enough legal grounds to advance in court.  The complaint came last year after the NLRB accused Home Depot of "selectively and disparately" enforcing workers a dress code that targeted BLM.  Bogas deemed that wearing BLM gear at work would politicize the work place.  A place where people go to buy wood and paint, not to be taunted by woke, liberal employees about donating to the BLM founder's multi-million dollar house fund.

New BLM head Cicley Gay has filed for personal bankruptcy three times.  The Black Lives Matters national group has a new executive to deal with its financial scandal: a woman who's bungled her own finances.  Cicley Gay, 44, a non-profit advisor and flack named chair of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation in April, filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2005, 2013 and 2016, federal court records show.  Her most recent filing, from August 2016, showed Gay had more than $120,000 in debts, including owing $55,000 in student loans — from her time studying at Liberty University in Virginia and the University of Kansas — and more than $18,000 for leasing a Lincoln MKZ sedan.  She also claimed to have $7,000 in medical expenses and owed $8,000 to two Christian schools, according to the records.

Race Huckstering in America.  [Scroll down]  The self-abasing wails of Black Guinea are not in fashion among today's race hustlers, though in fact if you spend any significant time in midtown Manhattan, you have a good chance of hearing a similar patter.  One of the hustlers who works the tourists near my Madison Avenue office harangues reluctant donors by loudly declaiming.  "Is it because I'm black?  Is it because I'm black?"  A fellow loafer with a more cheerful mien and a gentler line ("One dollar for the homeless.  Just one dollar.") rolls his eyes.  Playing the white guilt card so clumsily embarrasses the better class of hustlers.  These fellows, of course, are the smallest of small-time operators in the race industry.  The career ladder extends upward to diversity trainers, corporate equity officers, supernumerary staff hired to fill BIPOC quotas, small-time politicians, big-city mayors, and, perched atop the highest pinnacle of Mount Hustle, Patrisse Cullors.  She is one of the founders of Black Lives Matter who converted the charitable dollars given to her organization into a lavish lifestyle involving mansions, jets, and family members whose "services" gained them astonishing paydays.

Patrisse Cullors:  Martyr to the IRS.  Patrisse Cullors admits she's made a "few mistakes" as the ugly headlines continue to mount over her scandalous spending as the disgraced former leader of Black Lives Matter.  She attempted to keep a lid on her self-authorized spending for several years, but the IRS simply couldn't be ignored for another fiscal year.  (The group hadn't filed since 2017 and was forced to halt collection of donations.)  Once the bad news broke in a public tax filing last week, Cullors couldn't be bothered to address the allegations of her being at the center of a multi-million dollar grifter project, but rather she doubled down on the absurd claim of being cast in the role of "victim."  "Weaponizing against black women," was the ex-leader's way of explaining the IRS's routine demand for a 990 form from the world-famous "social justice" network for purposes of fiscal accountability.

Two Years In, Black Lives Matter Has Prompted More Americans To Reject White Guilt.  Today marks two years since the killing of George Floyd, and one thing can be said with certainty:  the committed Marxists who created Black Lives Matter and orchestrated the violent disorders that upended our cities in 2020 have been incredibly successful at deeply altering life in this country.  And not for the better.  That should not surprise in the least those who have followed closely what the BLM founders have said and done.  "Changing how we've organized this country ... dismantling the organizing principle of this society," as BLM architect Alicia Garza put it in 2019, has always been the goal.  Many people think BLM has gone away.  They don't see riots, looting, or burning in our cities anymore.  When they do hear about the main BLM organization, the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF), it is mostly about their financial improprieties or mansion-buying sprees.

BLM supporters got what they paid for.  More details recently emerged about epic payouts to, and property purchases by, the leaders and family members of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, one of the main organisations formed under the banner of Black Lives Matter to raise awareness about police brutality against black Americans.  In the wake of George Floyd's murder, BLMGNF raised $90 million, $12 million of which has been spent on property.  One of the leaders of BLMGNF, Patrisse Cullors, came under fire for purchasing four high-end homes herself, and BLMGNF also paid nearly $1million to a company owned by the father of Cullors' child, while her brother received $840,000 for 'security services', according to tax filings.

Color Revolutions are Not About Color.  A color revolution is a known tactical CIA operation that uses a seemingly spontaneous act as the precipitating event to destabilize a country and effect regime change.  The color revolution is what is happening in America, and its front line soldiers are Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM). [...] The organization Black Lives Matter (BLM) is not about black lives.  BLM is a Marxist organization disguised as a civil rights organization.  Instead of improving race relations, BLM exploits racial tensions to collapse America from within and replace our constitutional republic with socialism/communism.  BLM is the ultimate humanitarian hoax being perpetrated on unsuspecting Americans who still believe that BLM cares about black lives.  They don't.

BLM donated $200K to group whose director thinks cops are 'pigs': report.  Black Lives Matter donated $200,000 to a Chicago-based advocacy group "founded by and for post-incarcerated people" whose executive director has derided cops as "pigs" and "bastards" while calling for police to be defunded, tax documents show.  The group, Equality and Transformation, was established in 2018 with an aim to "uplift the voices and power" of black Chicagoans and to build "social and economic equity" for workers while "dismantling anti-Black" racism, according to its website.  But it's [sic] founder and executive director, Richard Wallace, has persistently attacked police officers — calling them "pigs" on Twitter, claiming it's "time to defund these [...]" and noting his approval of a poll that found 54% of Americans thought it was justified to burn down Minneapolis in the wake of George Floyd's death.

BLM says capitalism is bad, but then gorges on its luxuries.  In 1848, Marx and Engels birthed the toxic philosophy of communism.  Among other things, they detailed their hatred for capitalism; the necessity to dissolve the family unit, as it perpetuated the bourgeois; and the toxic tenet of "the end justifies the means." [...] Now, it's no secret that the organization known as "Black Lives Matter" is an ideologically Marxist entity.  Co-founder Patrisse Cullors openly said, "The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame.  Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. ... We are trained Marxists.  We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories." [...] Yet, as it turns out, when it comes down to it, Cullors and the Black Lives Matter organization are truly the exploitative class against which they claim to stand.  According to an article published last year by The New York Post, Cullors purchased four luxury homes for $3.2 million in the U.S. alone — she and the woman she lives with were also seen looking for homes at a highly exclusive Bahamas resort, home to Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake.

Controversial BLM co-founder doled out $8 million of group's money for [a] Canadian mansion, financial records show.  The national Black Lives Matter group granted $8 million to BLM Canada to purchase a mansion in Toronto that only cost $6.3 million, according to audited financial statements obtained by the Washington Examiner.  BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors was the sole board member of the BLM Global Network Foundation when it granted the funds to BLM Canada, the records show.  Cullors's spouse, Janaya Khan, served on the board of BLM Canada when the transfer was made.

The Verdict Is In:  BLM Is A Fraud.  We have written several times about the fraud that has been perpetrated by the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, e.g. here, here, here and here.  Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation raised a reported $90 million, mostly from large corporations.  In truth, however, no one knows how much money the operation pulled in, since it hasn't filed its legally required reports.  The whole thing has turned out to be a farce, with millions upon millions going to enrich BLM's founders.

IRS filing shows Black Live Matter dropped $1.2M lobbying Congress, pushing Trump impeachment.  An IRS filing released Tuesday by the Black Lives Matter Global Foundation (BLMGF) revealed that a large portion of the group's revenue was spent on lobbying Congress on a number of issues, including pressure on lawmakers to move forward on the impeachment of former President Donald Trump.  The 63-page Form 990 covers the fiscal year from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, and indicates the group had $42 million in net assets at that time, the Daily Mail reported.  In addition to lobbying for impeachment following the Jan 6.  Capitol riot, the group also sought to influence votes on the BREATHE Act, which would abolish the Drug Enforcement Agency and end life sentences.

Corporations don't care if BLM is wasting their money — they were just buying PR.  After the tragic death of George Floyd, the organization of Black Lives Matter took the forefront of supposed racial advocacy and reckoning.  To believe that black lives mattered, we were supposed to blindly support any organization that feigned supporting these efforts.  Now, two years after Floyd's death, we are finally asking questions about an organization that had more name recognition in one year than any marketing firm could have ever dreamed of.  On Tuesday, Black Lives Matter Global Foundation's 990 Tax Form was made public and we were able to get a glimpse into their finances as a 501(c)3 non-profit.  From purchasing homes for millions of dollars to paying family members exorbitant amounts of money for arbitrary services, we are left wondering if this organization did the same thing they claim to want to stop, which is exploitation.

BLM paid co-founder Patrisse Cullors' graffiti artist brother $800K for 'security'.  A co-founder of Black Lives Matter used more than $800,000 in donations to pay her brother for "security services" for the charity even though he seems to mostly work as a graffiti artist.  Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, paid a company controlled by Paul Cullors $840,993 in fiscal 2020, according to the group's federal tax filings, which cover the period July 1, 2020, to June 20, 2021.  It's the first time BLMGNF has filed with the IRS since receiving more than $66 million in donations in October 2020.  In July 2020, Paul Cullors, a self-taught graffiti artist, founded the security company Cullors Protection LLC, which received the cash for "professional security services," the filings show.  Around the same time, he was one of two "visiting artists" at a Los Angeles art collective called Crenshaw Dairy Mart, founded by his sister.

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child's father.  Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from "White guilt."  She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child's father to help "produce live events" and other "creative services."  Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services.  Daily Mail wrote that "leaders have attempted to justify" the expenses to her brother by saying the "foundation's protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations."  It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Tax Filings:  Black Lives Matter has over $42 Million in Assets.  New tax filings from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) reveal that the official Black Lives Matter organization ended the last fiscal year with at least $42 million in assets.  According to the Associated Press, the 63-page Form 990 shows that Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. peaked with over $90 million in donations in 2020, amid race riots that destroyed cities all across the country, which were largely orchestrated and led by BLM.  Of that $90 million, the organization invested at least $32 million in stocks.  At the conclusion of the last fiscal year, from July of 2020 to June of 2021, the organization reported $42 million in assets, with an operating budget of just $4 million.

Patrisse Cullors's brother [is] among BLM's two highest-paid employees.  The highest-paid employee of the national Black Lives Matter group is Paul Cullors, the brother of the charity's embattled co-founder Patrisse Cullors, new filings reveal.  Paul Cullors is the head of security at BLM's $6 million Los Angeles mansion, secretly purchased with donor funds in October 2020.  Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation identified Paul Cullors and BLM Operations Director Raymond Howard as the two employees with the "greatest compensation" in its Washington state charity registration application filed on May 11.

BLM founder Patrisse Cullors paid her baby father $970,000 for 'creative services', her brother $840,000 for security, a fellow director $2.1 [million].  Newly released tax filings revealed how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors used charity funds to pay her friends and family large sums for various 'consulting' services, as well as charter a private flight.  The documents reveal that BLM paid a company owned by Damon Turner, the father of Cullors' child, nearly $970,000 to help 'produce live events' and provide other 'creative services.'  The co-founder's brother, Paul Cullors, received more than $840,000 for providing security services to the foundation.

How Black Lives Matter Criminals Were Enabled by the I.R.S. and the Democrat Party.  The recently revealed purchase of multi-million-dollar properties by Black Lives Matter leaders, using unaccounted-for tax-exempt funds, tells us what we already should have known:  Black Lives Matter is a gang of street criminals who think nothing of stealing money donated to help "marginalized and under-served" communities, and pocketing it for themselves.  Because Black Lives Matter is a criminal organization responsible for violent mob actions in over 200 American cities in 2020, including the burning federal buildings and police stations, causing several billion dollars in property damage and sparking a national crime wave that resulted in 4,901 more homicides in 2020 than in the previous year, it is not surprising that they are no respecters of the causes they advocate, let alone the laws and regulations governing tax-exempt organizations.  Yet throughout the mayhem and criminal violence orchestrated by Black Lives Matter, the I.R.S and its commissioner Charles Rettig watched from afar and did nothing to prevent taxpayer monies from being used to bail out those Black Lives Matter thugs who had been arrested for breaking the law, and returning them to the streets to commit still more crimes.

The Internal Revenue (Election Rigging) Service.  [Scroll down]  This time, pay attention to Black Lives Matter, an utterly corrupt outfit whose riots and lootings destroyed so many cities and wreaked havoc on the black communities and their businesses.  The damage continues to this day as the riots fueled the defund police movement, a ridiculous effort that leaves the poor and the black communities particularly vulnerable to violent crime, and as another consequence caused an exodus of needed businesses from those places.  On her own, the mayor of D.C. ordered one street painted in huge letters "Black Lives Matter."  School kids were urged to walk out to support the group, while big corporations sent them money.  All told, the group reportedly raised $90 million in 2020.  The money seems to have vanished.  What we know is that millions of it went to mansions purchased by Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of the group.

Supreme Court's 9-0 flag-flying decision startles, dismays wokesters in Vermont public schools.  National outrage over George Floyd's death was particularly virulent in super-progressive ("woke") Vermont, where schools widely displayed the BLM flag beside the American flag.  Unconcerned that this was a blatantly illegal government endorsement of an overtly partisan organization, proponents donned the "hear no evil from constitutionalists" earmuffs and prided themselves on agitating their neighbors by violating the Constitution.  Many Vermonters have complained publicly that this is obvious abuse by government, but school officials have stonewalled, gaslighted, and suppressed all efforts to assert this axiomatic constitutional truth.  The state's capital city of Montpelier shamelessly painted BLM on the road in front of the Vermont State House and condemned as racist an effort to display "Liberty and Justice For All" beside it.  This is a cohesive, deliberate drive to eliminate basic constitutional guarantees to be replaced with an anti-constitutional ideology:  the BLM flag is elevated as a superior symbol.

Clintonworld Steps Away From Black Lives Matter on Eve of Financial Disclosure.  Marc Elias and Minyon Moore, two longtime allies of Bill and Hillary Clinton who recently took up key roles with the national Black Lives Matter group, relinquished top spots with the embattled organization, according to new records filed just days before the group reveals what it did with the $90 million it raised in 2020.  The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation revealed in February that the Elias Law Group, Elias's namesake law firm, had taken control of its books and finances.  But Elias Law Group is nowhere to be found in BLM's latest registration filings submitted to Florida and Oklahoma on April 28, according to records obtained by the Washington Examiner.  While the new records show the Elias Law Group is no longer in control of BLM's books, whatever continued involvement Elias's firm may have with the embattled charity remains a mystery.

BLM has left Black Americans worse off since the movement began, experts say.  The Black Lives Matter movement started a massive wave of Americans uniting to call for defunding the police and eradicating white supremacy to make positive changes for Black Americans.  But experts reflecting on the movement's scorecard in 2022 say Black America hasn't benefited.  "I would argue that, on balance, these communities are worse off because by [BLM] overemphasizing the role of police, they've changed police behavior for the worse," the Manhattan Institute's Jason Riley told Fox News Digital in a phone interview.  "In other words, police do become more cautious.  They're less likely to get out of their cars and engage with people in the community.  And to the extent that police are less proactive, the criminals have the run of the place."

I Criticized BLM. Then I Was Fired.  Until recently, I was a director of data science at Thomson Reuters, one of the biggest news organizations in the world.  It was my job, among other things, to sift through reams of numbers and figure out what they meant.  About a year ago, I stumbled on a really big story.  It was about black Americans being gunned down across the country and the ways in which we report on that violence.  We had been talking nonstop about race and police brutality, and I thought:  This is a story that could save lives.  This is a story that has to be told.  But when I shared the story with my coworkers, my boss chastised me, telling me expressing this opinion could limit my ability to take on leadership roles within the company.  Then I was maligned by my colleagues.  And then I was fired.

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors admits she LIED when she denied using group's $6m LA property ONLY for official business.  BLM's controversial co-founder Patrisse Cullors has admitted she lied when she said she had only ever used the group's $6million LA mansion for official business.  Cullors, 38, told the Associated Press Monday that she used the opulent seven-bed Studio City compound — purchased in cash by BLM in October 2020 — for her own recreation twice.  The first instance saw her hold a party to toast Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's inauguration as president and vice president in January 2021.

What Were Black Lives Matter Leaders Doing With a $6 Million House?  Black Lives Matter began as a hashtag marking the death of Trayvon Martin and the failure to find justice after his killing.  In the years since, Black Lives Matter has grown into a movement with international recognition and power.  It's always important to remember that Black Lives Matter is a movement but also a political ideology and a complex web of organizations.  The movement has inspired millions to protest police violence.  The ideology has influenced American politics for the last decade, and the organizations have pushed for social justice and policy.  Now, one of those core groups, the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, is the subject of a recent report about its finances, specifically its purchase of a $6 million home in Malibu, California, under the guidance of the group's former leader, Patrisse Cullors, ostensibly as both a safe house and as a space to film social media videos.

Six years of BLM Killed More Blacks than 86 Years of Lynchings.  In 2014, the number of black American murder victims was 6,095.  Then, after the August 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, anti-police protests and riots began, federal officials and mass media sympathetic to rioters brought heightened scrutiny to police practices, BLM began its career, "broken windows" policing was curtailed, and police morale plummeted.  The number of murders thereupon began to surge, never to return to 2014 levels.  The "excess" murder victims from 2015 through 2020 who were black — that is, the additional black victims each year beyond the 2014 baseline — add up to 11,005.  Compare that to the number of lynchings during the heyday of Jim Crow.  According to the Tuskegee Institute, the number of blacks lynched from 1882 through 1968 was 3,446.

Black Lives Matter PAC siphoned away almost all of its $116,000 cash reserves in the first three months of 2022.  Black Lives Matter PAC burned through nearly all of its $116,000 cash reserves in just the first three months of 2022[,] paying the most significant chunk to a firm owned by a BLM board member.  Bowers Consulting Firm, a company run by BLM board member Shalomyah Bowers, was the highest-paid BLM PAC vendor during the first quarter of 2022, having received $45,000 from the PAC for 'strategic consulting services,' the Washington Examiner reported.  Two additional law firms also received a large portion of the funds.  Democratic lawyer Marc Elias, received $8,000 for legal services and the Perkins Coie law firm received $8,350 for compliance services.

BLM Global Network Foundation's Creators Are Not Interested in Black Lives.  Black Lives Matter benefits from a vicious cycle that allows the organization to carry on changing America beyond recognition.  Large media companies like The New York Times, The Washington Post, and TV networks have imposed a news blackout that ensures that BLM supporters ignore its intent and practices.  This continues to be the case despite several breaking bombshells this year alone regarding financial improprieties by the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, BLM's mothership.  So unless you are that rare BLM backer who assiduously watches Fox News or reads the New York Post or the Washington Examiner — three organizations that take their journalistic responsibilities seriously regarding BLM, and which have recently been joined by New York Magazine — there are a number of important things you have missed.

Oh, to be as privileged as a Black Lives Matter leader.  Entitled former BLM leader Patrisse Cullors' latest complaint is that standard financial disclosure forms are "triggering" and "unsafe."  You see, in a panic after the 2020 killing of George Floyd, corporate America dumped roughly $90 million on the national BLM group, which then used part of the windfall to quietly buy some premium real estate for its leaders' enjoyment.  New York magazine recently exposed BLM's October 2020 purchase of a $5.8 million Studio City, Calif., mansion, reporting that Cullors rapidly denounced as a "racist and sexist" attack because ... well, as best we can tell, because she's a woman and "black" is part of BLM's name.  To be fair, that tactic worked before:  A year ago, Facebook quashed The Post's reporting on Cullors' personal purchase of four homes, totaling $3.2 million, flagging the story as "abusive" and a violation of the platform's privacy policies.

BLM's $6 million mansion a clear violation of IRS law, watchdog charges.  Black Lives Matter and its co-founder Patrisse Cullors could face civil or criminal penalties for illegally using the organization's $6 million Los Angeles mansion for Cullors's private benefit, a watchdog group charged in a complaint filed with the IRS on Thursday [4/14/2022].  The watchdog group, National Legal and Policy Center, said in the complaint it was "highly unusual" that BLM Global Network Foundation purchased the mansion in cash through a middleman in October 2020, transferred the deed to an obscure LLC one week later, then concealed the mansion's existence from its donors for 19 months while Cullors stayed at the property for days at a time and used it in multiple videos posted to her private YouTube channel.

Black Lives Matter Claims 'Racism' Over News of Spending Sprees.  Patrisse Cullors is among the first to claim "racism" in response to the damaging headlines swirling around the finances of the "non-profit" she helped launch:  Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.  Controversy over profligate spending has crippled the richest network of "social justice warriors" in the country.  The group enjoyed a banner year in 2020 — in the midst of the George Floyd protests — raking in $90 million in donations.  Supporters and detractors of the organization are starting to ask questions about the self-enrichment of its top-tier executives — now mostly former BLM members.  Chief among them is Cullors, who has yet to explain the source of income that enabled her to purchase four homes in posh neighborhoods amounting to $3.2 million.  That looming question had barely disappeared from headlines before Cullors became a lightning rod, and her colleagues, who were featured in a photograph sipping champagne on the balcony of an unreported BLM luxurious $6 million home purchase, resigned from the organization.

HuffPo: Sure looks like Black Lives Matter was a racket, eh?  Let's keep in mind that BLM exists in two levels, a point that [HuffPo's Stephen] Crockett himself takes pains to make, two that are apparently entirely separate.  Local chapters of BLM raise money locally and spend it locally, usually in much smaller amounts and with at least some promise of local accountability.  They also appear to have little contact with Cullors et al, especially when it comes to benefiting from the latter's fundraising.  The national foundation on which Crockett focuses here is different.  It raises much more money thanks to its rapid embrace in the days after Ferguson and especially after the George Floyd homicide in the Twin Cities.  Because of their PR and the unquestioning approach of politicians and celebrities, the national org soaks up almost all of the donors without any accountability.  This has been noted for quite a while, both from local activists like Seals and its critics, but largely ignored by the mainstream and progressive media circles.  Until now, that is.  With the scandalous self-enrichment at BLM finally exposed, it's very difficult to ignore the obvious lessons it provides.

Black Lives Meltdown.  Black Lives Matter Global Network, once the crown jewel of the Democrat Left, has become a major embarrassment that should cost the Democrats a lot of House and Senate seats this November — but only if the Republican Party does not squander the opportunity the way it squandered it in 2020. That was when it came out that BLM was campaigning openly against Donald Trump while accepting 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money via ActBlue Charities, and with Thousand Currents and then the Tides Foundation as its fiscal sponsor.  501(c)(3) resources cannot be used to influence an election.  The RNC could have used this issue to evoke public revulsion against this abuse of voters' and donors' trust and support, and specifically the perception of voters and donors that they were supporting civil rights as opposed to a political campaign funded with charitable contributions.

BLM purchased $6 million Los Angeles mansion with donor money:  Report.  The national Black Lives Matter group purchased a $6 million mansion in a Los Angeles neighborhood with donor cash in October 2020 and then maneuvered to keep the purchase a secret, according to a report Monday [4/4/2022].  BLM Global Network Foundation used a man with close business ties to the charity's co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, to purchase the luxury mansion with the charity's cash resources, according to a report by New York magazine.  The property purchase came just two weeks after BLM received a $66.5 million cash infusion from its former fiscal sponsor on Oct. 6, 2020.

Black Lives Matter used donations to buy $6 million Southern California home: report.  Black Lives Matter bought a swanky Southern California home for nearly $6 million using donation cash, according to a report Monday [4/4/2022].  Three leaders of the social justice movement — Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Melina Abdullah — recorded a video last June outside of the "secretly bought" home while marking the one-year anniversary of George Floyd's murder, New York magazine reported.  Cullors at the time said she was weeks removed from being in "survival mode" after The [New York] Post's exclusive reporting in April revealed her purchase of four high-end US homes for $3.2 million.

Senior Democrats helped legitimize indicted BLM activist.  At least nine prominent Democratic officials at the local, state, and national level helped legitimize a Boston-area Black Lives Matter activist who was indicted last week for allegedly stealing funds from her anti-violence charity.  Labor Secretary Marty Walsh, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu are among the officials who supported Monica Cannon-Grant during a time frame prosecutors allege the activist and her husband pilfered funds from the charity, Violence in Boston, to pay for personal expenses such as rent, vacations, nail salon services, and meals at Bubba Gump Shrimp.

Black Lives Matter Activist Stole Thousands In Cash Meant for Hungry Kids.  It's almost like you can't trust the activists who advocate for criminals... not to be criminals.

Boston Globe's 'Bostonian of the Year' BLM race activist and husband indicted for fraud.  New England's most prominent exponent of the Black Lives Matter movement is facing charges of bilking donors and using charity funds for personal gain.  The highest-profile race activist in Boston, Monica Cannon-Grant, has been indicted by the US Attorney in Boston on 18 counts:  ["]...with two counts of wire fraud conspiracy; one count of conspiracy; 13 counts of wire fraud; and one count of making false statements to a mortgage lending business.  The indictment also charges Cannon-Grant with one count of mail fraud.["]  Cannon-Grant founded a group called Violence in Boston (VIB) before the George Floyd death in police custody, but that event and the riots that followed propelled her and her group into the stratosphere of prominence and Beantown, with accompanying honors from the progressive media and plenty of cash from [...] donors.

Another Black Lives Matter Scandal Emerges.  It might surprise you to learn that Black Lives Matter (BLM) appears to be going through another financial scandal.  Well, perhaps after the news exposing the reality that the global organization appears to have gotten funny with the money broke late last year, it might not exactly be a shocker.  The Boston Globe reported about a community organizer in the city who became well-known after organizing protests in the wake of the George Floyd murder.  She is now under federal investigation over allegations that she and her husband misused donations given to her nonprofit, Violence in Boston Inc.

BLM's cash hoard may be significantly larger than previously disclosed, new records suggest.  The national Black Lives Matter group may be sitting on a cash hoard significantly larger than previously disclosed, new records reviewed by the Washington Examiner suggest.  Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation claimed in February 2021, it spent about a third of the $90 million it raised in 2020, leaving the group with $60 million under its control at the end of the year.  Previously unreported IRS records suggest that BLM, through its fiscal sponsors, raised nearly $79 million from the small-dollar Democratic fundraising platform ActBlue in 2020 and another $13 million through ActBlue in 2021, figures that likely don't represent the flood of corporate donations that poured into BLM's coffers during the nationwide unrest that followed George Floyd's killing.

Black Lives Matter blew $12.7 million of the $60 million in donations it received in 2020 on consultants and lawyers.  The most high-profile Black Lives Matter group in the nation spent almost a quarter of its donations in 2020 on consultants and lawyers, can reveal.  The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) submitted a statement of its revenue and expenses for the year while applying for tax-exempt, nonprofit status in August 2020.  IRS documents obtained by show the group blew $12.7 million out of the $60 million in donations it received following the outcry over George Floyd's death on 'professional fees.'

BLM privilege & Jan. 6 capitol riot ignominy.  When prominent young far-left activist Quintez Brown was arrested last week for allegedly trying to assassinate a Jewish mayoral candidate in Kentucky, he was portrayed sympathetically by the media and immediately bailed out of jail by his Black Lives Matter comrades, who crowdfunded the $100,000 cost.  Brown, 21, had BLM privilege.  A celebrated gun control advocate, anointed as a rising star by the Obama Foundation, he was an honored guest on Joy Reid's MSNBC show.  He was granted a biweekly opinion column in the Louisville Courier-Journal to spew boilerplate leftist, race-based, anti-cop sentiment.  And according to Andy Ngo, author of "Unmasked," the definitive Antifa expose, Brown's social media accounts show a disturbing allegiance to anti-Semitic causes, such as the Lion Of Judah Armed Forces, an armed black nationalist group that is linked to the virulently anti-Semitic Black Hebrew Israelites.

BLM activist Quintez Brown who was arrested for trying to kill a Jewish mayoral candidate showed 'allegiance to anti-Semitic causes' on his social media accounts.  A Black Lives Matter activist who was charged with attempted murder last week following an alleged assassination attempt on a Jewish mayoral candidate exhibited anti-Semitic views on social media.  Quintez Brown, 21, was arrested and charged with attempted murder shortly after Monday's shooting in Louisville, Kentucky, in which Democratic candidate Craig Greenberg narrowly avoided the bullet.  But he was released from prison and placed under house arrest just two days after the shooting when a BLM chapter, the Louisville Community Bail Fund, posted his $100,000 bond.

Amazon suspends Black Lives Matter from its charity platform.  The beleaguered Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation has been kicked off Amazon's charity platform for its failure to disclose where tens of millions of dollars in donations it received nearly two years ago have ended up.  AmazonSmile, which gives a portion of eligible purchases on the online shopping site to charities, said it "had to temporarily suspend" the group today, an Amazon spokesperson told The [New York] Post.  "States have rules for nonprofits, and organizations participating in AmazonSmile need to meet those rules," the spokesperson said.  "Unfortunately this organization fell out of compliance with the rules in several states, so we've had to temporarily suspend them from the program until they come into compliance."

BLM posts $100,000 bail for defund police activist, 21, honored by Obama who's now charged with attempted murder.  A BLM activist accused of trying to assassinate a Jewish mayoral candidate has been pictured with Barack Obama, as his alleged victim slammed the 'broken criminal justice system' for freeing the suspected shooter on bail.  Quintez Brown, 21, was one of 22 people chosen to meet the former President of the United States in 2019 as part of Obama's My Brother's Keeper Alliance, which is aimed at closing achievement gaps facing young boys and men of color.  Brown, of Louisville in Kentucky, was pictured smiling behind the president, and even named as a future star by the Obama Foundation website, but now finds himself accused of the attempted murder of Craig Greenberg.  And his case has attracted further outrage after it emerged a local Black Lives Matter chapter had put up his $100,000 bail.

BLM Louisville posts $100,000 bail for [an] activist who tried to assassinate [a] Democratic mayoral candidate.  Reasonable minds can differ, I guess, but if I had 100 large lying around earmarked for bailing out criminal suspects, I'd probably start with the nonviolent offenders.  Not the would-be assassins charged with attempted murder.

You Will Never Guess Who's in Charge of the $60 Million in Black Lives Matter Assets.  Two weeks ago, PJ Media covered the growing scandal of the finances of Black Lives Matter.  The group had raised $90 million and spent less than $30 million on "social justice" causes.  The scandal is that no one appears to be in charge of that remaining $60 million. [...] To the rescue comes the Bill and Hillary Clinton cavalry.  The Washington Examiner reports that several Clinton associates have taken up key positions at BLM, including Democratic Party fixer Mark Elias.  It was Elias who funneled money to fund Christopher Steele's discredited anti-Trump dossier and served as Hillary's 2016 campaign general counsel.  Elias's newly formed law firm is reportedly located at one of BLM's addresses and states in its short-year 2020 Form 990 that its finances are now in the care of the Elias Law Group.

Memphis Black Lives Matter Founder Sentenced to 6 Years for Illegally Voting.  A Black Lives Matter organizer in Memphis was sentenced to prison after she was convicted for illegally registering to vote.  Pamela Moses, described by some outlets as the founder of a BLM chapter in Memphis, was sentenced to six years in prison last week after she was convicted in November 2021 for illegally registering to vote in Tennessee, according to prosecutors.  Moses had felony convictions in 2015, making her ineligible to register to vote.  Judge Mark Ward, while handing down her prison sentence, accused her of making false statements to the probation department to register to vote.  "You tricked the probation department into giving you documents saying you were off probation," Ward said in court last week.  "After you were convicted of a felony in 2015, you voted six times as a convicted felon."

Black Lives Matter's missing billions.  The Black Lives Matter movement has raised billions of dollars over the past several years.  But no one seems to know how most of that money has been spent.  On 20 December 2020, The Economist noted that $10.6 billion had been pledged to causes and organisations affiliated with BLM.  According to that article and further reporting from the right-leaning Daily Signal, BLM's corporate donors included Amazon, Gatorade, Microsoft, 23andMe and Tinder, while recipients ranged from the small-scale Unicorn Riot guerilla media firm to the sizeable Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF).  As far as I can tell, no comprehensive or even partial audit of what happened to this staggering sum of money has ever taken place.  Indeed, given the sheer number of corporate and NGO players involved, conducting one would be incredibly difficult.  However, taking a look at the experience of just one BLM-affiliated organisation — BLMGNF — could give us an insight into what went on more broadly.  The foundation's story is truly remarkable.

A BLM Activist Who is Running for Louisville's Metro Council is Charged with Attempted Murder.  A Louisville BLM activist has just been identified by the Louisville Metro Police Department as the suspect in the attempted shooting of mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg.  Activist Quintez Brown, 21, was just charged with attempted murder and four other counts of endangerment after Brown was reportedly linked to the attempted shooting of Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg.  According to LMPD, Brown allegedly fired multiple shots into Craig Greenberg's campaign office on Monday.  The police report would state Greenberg was unharmed but a bullet did graze his clothing.  The gun that was used in the incident was a 9-millimeter handgun.

Bond raised for activist Quintez Brown, charged with the attempted murder of Louisville mayoral candidate Craig Greenberg.  Police have arrested a suspect they say was responsible for the attempted murder of Louisville Democratic mayoral candidate Craig Greenburg.  Quintez Brown, 21, was taken into custody Monday [2/14/2022].  He has been charged with attempted murder and four counts of wanton endangerment.  According to, wanton endangerment refers to an act or an instance of putting someone or something in danger of exposure to peril or harm.

Black Lives Matter:  Tracking $60 Million in Unaccounted Donations.  Top executives are fleeing the most famous "social cause" network, now that more than one attorney general has come knocking on their door with inquiries about "unaccounted funds" at the non-profit:  Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, Inc. (BLMGNF).  It's difficult to know who is in charge, but the organization recently received a demand for an accounting of the more than $60 million collected in 2020, according to a letter from the Department of Justice in California.  Other liberal states would soon follow.  Among those who were warned they would be "held personally liable" for the unaccounted donations are the founders and top three executives, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi (all no longer with the foundation). An attempt was made at damage control with the public announcement of two newly recruited candidates — Makani Themba and Monifa Bandele — to replace the former executives.  The announcement turned out to be premature, owing to the fact that Themba and Bandele never actually stepped into the executive roles, according to the Daily Mail.  They were unable to arrive at "the terms of their employment."

New Mexico's Democratic AG eyes BLM amid growing financial scrutiny.  New Mexico could become the latest state to take a hard look at financial questions swirling around Black Lives Matter.  The state's top lawman, Democratic Attorney General Hector Balderas, vowed to go after any charity that takes advantage of donors, and his spokeswoman said the office is working on "securing compliance" with the social justice charity.  "Our office will investigate and pursue action against any charitable organization that refuses to comply with reporting requirements, or that takes advantage of donors," said Jerri Mares, a spokeswoman for Balderas's office.

Activist who founded Black Lives Matter Memphis is sentenced to six years in prison for illegally voting.  The founder of Black Lives Matter Memphis has been sentenced to six years in prison for illegally registering to vote after pleading guilty to felonies in 2015.  Pamela Moses, 44, voted illegally six times since she pleaded guilty to evidence tampering, forgery, perjury, stalking and theft under $500, seven years ago.  The activist is now claiming she was unaware she was still on probation, which lasted seven years, and believed her voting rights were reinstated in 2019.  'I did not falsify anything.  All I did was try to get my rights to vote back the way the people at the election commission told me and the way the clerk did,' she said at her sentencing hearing on January 26.

Kenosha District Attorney Releases Photos of BLM-Antifa Looters from 2020 Riots that Destroyed the City.  The Kenosha District Attorney released photos of BLM looters from the 2020 riots.  Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorists burned down the city business district causing millions in damage.  The FBI does not seem too interested in these rioters for some reason.  [Numerous photos]  Each photo has a specific number associated with it and can be reported on directly via email by clicking on the relevant image.  If you do not have email or would like to report something anonymously, you can do so via a form submittal page.

Black Lives Matter Suspends Fundraising After California AG Warns of Missing Reports.  The official Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization suspended online fundraising on Wednesday after being warned by the California Attorney General that it faced revocation of its charitable status after failing to file required annual reports.  The finances of the organization have been under close scrutiny since last year, when co-founder (and trained Marxist) Patrisse Khan-Cullors was reported to have bought four homes.  She resigned, but concerns lingered about $60 million in donations that BLM collected by the end of 2020 but for which no one in particular at the organization seemed accountable.

California And Washington Demand Black Lives Matter Stop Fundraising Over Issues With Financial Transparency.  Washington and California have both recently warned Black Lives Matter Global (BLM) to stop accepting donations due to a lack of transparency in their financial accounting, the Washington Examiner reported Wednesday.  According to a letter acquired by the Washington Examiner, the California Department of Justice has threatened to hold BLM leaders accountable if they do not hand over details regarding the organization's $60 million it collected in donations within the next 60 days.

Who's in Charge of Black Lives Matter's $60 Million Treasure Chest?  CharityWatch Executive Director Laurie Styron commented to New York magazine about Black Lives Matter's $60 million in cash left over from fundraising in 2020, saying BLM was like a "giant ghost ship full of treasure drifting in the night with no captain, no discernible crew, and no clear direction."  Indeed, no one — including any of the so-called "leaders" at Black Lives Matter — knows who's in charge of that money. [...] BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors came under fire for purchasing several homes in California just as the George Floyd protests began to ratchet up.  The California real estate market being what it is, the homes cost Cullors several million dollars.  When questions began to be asked, Cullors film flam was exposed.

California threatens to hold BLM's leaders personally liable over missing financial records.  The California Department of Justice has threatened to hold the leaders of Black Lives Matter personally liable if they fail to fork over information about the charity's $60 million bankroll within the next 60 days, according to a letter obtained by the Washington Examiner.  The move came just days after a Washington Examiner investigation found that BLM has had no known leader in charge of its millions since its co-founder resigned in May and that the Los Angeles address it lists on its tax forms is wrong.

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors tied to other groups with spending 'red flags': report.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors — who resigned in the wake of a [New York] Post expose of her spending spree on lavish homes — is tied to several other fundraising organizations whose finances raise "potential red flags," according to a new report.  One of the groups, Reform LA Jails, in 2019 collected more than $1.4 million, of which $205,000 went to a consulting company owned by Cullors and her spouse Janaya Khan, New York magazine said.  Another $211,000 was paid to Cullors' pal Asha Bandele, who co-wrote her memoir, and about $86,000 was paid to an entertainment, clothing and consulting company called Trap Heals, which was started by Damon Turner, the father of Cullors' child, according to the report.

The Black Lives Matter scam.  The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation did not raise a single penny for the first six years of its existence.  It couldn't.  The foundation wasn't even registered with the Internal Revenue Service as a charity.  But after George Floyd's murder in May of 2020, tens of millions of dollars were given to this organization from major corporations and celebrities.  And now, no one even knows where all that money has gone. [...] According to Candid, a website devoted to tracking nonprofit donations, groups like BLM, which claim to be devoted to racial "equity," have raised over $25 billion since George Floyd's death.  What exactly have these billions accomplished?  Are black lives any safer?  Quite the opposite.  Thanks to activism from groups like BLM, police budgets have been slashed in major cities across the country, and the number of arrests has plunged by 24%. As police were being defunded, murder rates skyrocketed, with black lives hardest hit.  In 2019, before the "defund the police" movement, 7,777 black people were murdered, making up 53.5% of all homicide victims.  That was already bad, but in 2020, both of those numbers rose.

Black Lives Matter sent millions to Canada charity to buy mansion.  Black Lives Matter transferred millions to a Canadian charity run by the wife of its co-founder to purchase a sprawling mansion that had once served as the headquarters of the Communist Party, public records show.  M4BJ, a Toronto-based non-profit set up by Janaya Khan and other Canadian activists, snagged the 10,000 square foot historic property for the equivalent of $6.3 million in cash in July 2021, according to Toronto property records viewed by The [New York] Post.  Khan is the wife of Patrisse Khan-Cullors, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Global Foundation Network and a self-avowed Marxist.  She resigned from the group last year, a month after The Post revealed that she had spent $3.2 million on homes in Georgia and Los Angeles.  Khan-Cullors vigorously denied that BLM donations were used to buy the homes.

Anger over BLM's purchase of $8.1 million Toronto mansion grows as group's finances scrutinized.  Canadian Black Lives Matter activists are furious over the group's recent $8.1 million cash purchase of a mansion in downtown Toronto that once served as the headquarters of the Communist Party of Canada.  The U.S. charity that serves as the face of the BLM movement provided the bulk of the funding for the purchase of the 10,000-square-foot property in July.  The purchase flew largely under the radar at the time, but anger has now reached a boiling point amid other revelations about BLM's management and its finances.  "For BLM Canada to take money from BLM Global Network [Foundation] for a building without consulting the community was unethical," Canadian BLM activists Sarah Jama and Sahra Soudi said in a recent statement.  "For BLM Canada to refuse to answer questions from young Black organizers goes against the spirit of movement-building."

Attention all donors:  You've been had.
BLM's millions unaccounted for after leaders quietly jumped ship.  No one appears to have been in charge at Black Lives Matter for months.  The address it lists on tax forms is wrong, and the charity's two board members won't say who controls its $60 million bankroll, a Washington Examiner investigation has found.  BLM's shocking lack of transparency surrounding its finances and operations raises major legal and ethical red flags, multiple charity experts told the Washington Examiner.  "Like a giant ghost ship full of treasure drifting in the night with no captain, no discernible crew, and no clear direction," CharityWatch Executive Director Laurie Styron said of BLM.

Where is BLM's office?  It's a mystery.  Anyone wanting to visit Black Lives Matter's headquarters will be in for a disappointment.  The nonprofit organization listed a nonexistent address on its 2019 IRS 990 form, and a visit to the similarly named address listed on a credit monitoring report (which has the same street number but a different spelling for the street and the wrong ZIP code) came up empty. [...] The Washington Examiner was seeking BLM's latest tax return covering its financial activities for 2020, which was supposed to be submitted to the IRS on Nov. 15, 2021.  Federal law requires BLM to provide a copy of the return to anyone requesting it in person.  The 2019 tax form lists BLM's address as 3655 South Grande Ave., Los Angeles, California, 90003.  No street with the Spanish spelling of "Grand" exists in Los Angeles, but there is a Grand Avenue in a different ZIP code.

BLM chapter fumes about shot cops automatically being deemed 'heroes'.  The Black Lives Matter chapter of Washington, DC, has called for the public not to automatically hail cops shot on the job as "heroes" before all facets of a situation are considered.  In a series of tweets late Sunday [1/23/2022], Black Lives Matter DC said the public should not "jump to conclusions" after a Metropolitan Police officer was wounded by a barricaded suspect late Sunday in the city's Petworth section.  "Let's wait till we have all the information (isn't that what y'all tell us)," the chapter tweeted late Sunday.  Black Lives Matter DC compared Sunday's shooting to earlier fatal gunfire involving police, including incidents in 2021 and 2017, while calling on people to wait for more facts to be released in the most recent encounter.

BLM group promotes 'smash and grab' event, terrorizes Xmas shoppers in Beverly Hills.  On Thursday evening, the Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter held a "Smash and Grab" protest on Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, a shopping area full of luxury stores.  The protest reportedly shut down the area for around two hours on one of the last shopping days before Christmas, according to MSN.  [Video clip]  The gathering was dubbed the "Smash White Capitalism and Grab Justice" protest, with BLM LA stating on their Instagram page:  "It's a different kind of 'smash and grab!'"

Three 'What Ifs' We're Not Supposed to Ask.  [#3]  What if, instead of Black Lives Matter and Antifa burning down cities these last few years in response to perceived "injustices," Republican voters had continuously shown up in the streets to seek vengeance for court decisions or police actions they did not like?  What if they had responded to the unconstitutional imposition of Obamacare or the federal government's refusal to enforce immigration law or the FBI's decision to classify conservatives as "domestic extremists" by taking over highways, looting stores, and threatening innocent bystanders?  Would mayors and governors have sat back and said stoically, "Give them some space to destroy"?  Would the director of the FBI have testified that all these "mostly peaceful protests" organized by conservatives were really about some abstract idea of freedom, rather than anything that should be targeted by law enforcement?  Would pro-liberty Tea Partiers have been featured on the front pages of fashion mags and had their political slogans emblazoned on chic clothing lines just as BLM's are regularly today?

Cracked Icons.  [Scroll down]  Black Lives Matter recently jumped the proverbial shark of ridiculousness when it deplored as "racist" holding convicted liar Jussie Smollett to account.  BLM has said little about the record black-on-black murders in many of the nation's major cities, in part an obvious consequence from its nationwide campaign to "defund" (or, actually, shut down) the police.  After the Waukesha mass murdering, BLM, which talks of "black" and "white" as collectives without individuals among them, had nothing to say about the anti-white career criminal who mowed down attendants, including children, at a Christmas parade — other than a minor regional BLM "official" who claimed in poorly hidden glee that such killing might be the start of a "revolution."  After all the hype, all the corporate shakedown and virtue signaling money, all the charges of white racism, all of Professor Kendi's $20-30,000 zoom reeducation rants, all the appeasing CEOs, the Mark Milleys and Lloyd Austins, and the legions of diversity, equity, and inclusion administrative bloat, what are we left with?  Certainly not a Marshall plan to save the inner city, not an effort to reduce illegitimacy or single-parent households, not new charter schools to give the poor the chance of competitive educations in math, science, literature, and history.

The Real Intersectional Struggle:  Civilization against Savagery.  The political left uses the term "intersectionality" to depict all members of advanced and largely Westernized societies as oppressors and all non-white people and residents of third-world countries as oppressees.  Slaves in the antebellum United States, black Americans under Jim Crow laws, and Palestinians are now one and the same.  Zionism is racism, Israel equals Simon Legree, and Black Lives Matter rallies feature Palestinian flags along with anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hate speech.  "Israel, we know you, you murder children, too."  BLM supporter Marc Lamont Hill added that the group supports dismantling Israel.  The Movement for Black Lives, meanwhile, depicted Israel as an "apartheid state" and accused it of genocide.  BLM leader Patrisse Cullors, while speaking in her capacity as a co-founder of BLM as opposed to on her own behalf, called to "end the imperialist project that's called Israel."  The International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance includes in its definition of anti-Semitism, "Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor."  Black Lives Matter therefore appears to fit the IHRA definition of an anti-Semitic organization.

What Black Lives Matter has accomplished.  [Scroll down]  In line with its radical "Defund the police" slogan, police budgets have been slashed in major cities across the country, including Seattle, Portland, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Washington, Philadelphia, and New York City.  Without the necessary resources to police communities, the number of arrests plunged by 24% between 2019 and 2020, the years for which data are most recently available.  The number of people in prison has also dropped dramatically, with the Democratic-controlled states of California and New York seeing the biggest reduction in the number of criminals behind bars.  This is also a consequence of liberal prosecutors in big cities such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Philadelphia deliberately seeking fewer convictions for those actually arrested by police, often withdrawing charges in winnable cases even against violent repeat offenders.  This has had predictable results.  Asked why homicides were rising nationwide, former New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce told ABC News, "Nobody's getting arrested anymore.  People are getting picked up for gun possession, and they're just let out over and over again."

'Don't Throw That At Me': Martha MacCallum Explodes On BLM Leader Who Accuses Her Of 'White Privilege'.  Fox News host Martha MacCallum fired back at a BLM leader on Friday after he accused her of living from a place of "white privilege."  During a heated segment of "The Story," Hawk Newsome, who co-founded Black Lives Matter of Greater New York with his sister, accused MacCallum of "white privilege" as they discussed pro-police leaders in New York City.  The host immediately snapped back at Newsome following the accusation, saying, "Don't throw that at me."  [Video clip]

Black Lives Matter Stands By Convicted Hoaxer Jussie Smollett After Guilty Verdict.  Black Lives Matter says it is standing by hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett — even after a jury found the disgraced actor guilty of five counts of felony disorderly conduct.  Black Lives Matter maintains that the justice system is corrupt.  "So let's be clear:  we love everybody in our community — we can never believe police, especially the CPD over Jussie Smollett, a Black man who has been courageously present, visible, and vocal in the struggle for Black freedom," BLM and BLM LA said in a statement to TMZ before the verdict.

BLM Activist Snaps on a Plane forced Emergency Landing, Claims White People Enslaved him, Fights the Air Marshall.  [T]his just happened on our plane from D.C. to LAX two seats in front of me.  He was yelling about BLM and being enslaved by the white man.  We had to emergency land in Oklahoma so the federal police could come take him off.  Our five hour flights turned into 8 hours.  [Video clip]

BLM corporate donors Amazon, Microsoft and Intel are silent on call to boycott white companies this Christmas.  Companies that donated to the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Global Network Foundation — including Amazon, Intel and Microsoft — have yet to weigh in on the movement's call to boycott white companies this Christmas, despite the group profiting from corporate donations.  The organization on Instagram urged its supporters to participate in 'Black Xmas' by buying 'exclusively from Black-owned businesses' through January 1.  'Move your money out of white-corporate banks that finance our oppression and open accounts with Black-owned banks,' it said.

BLM Leaders Recorded Promoting White Genocide 'I'm for Putting All White Possums in Gas Chambers'.  In a rant that is eerily similar to one you would hear from Adolf Hitler against the Jews, a Black Lives Matter leader and admitted black supremacist, Manuel Griffen, was recorded spewing pro-genocide language against white people.  At one point Manuel even states "I'm for putting all white possums in gas chambers", he then doubled down on his racist speech on Twitter by saying yes, it is him spewing the hate speech, and yes, he absolutely agrees that whites need to be exterminated.  [Audeo clip]

Black Lives Matter calls for month-long boycott of 'white companies' during the holiday season to support 'Black Xmas'.  Black Lives Matter has announced its seventh year of boycotting 'white companies' during the holiday season to support 'Black Xmas.'  On Black Friday, the official Black Lives Matter Global Network shared an Instagram post calling to 'support Black-led-Black-serving organizations.'  'We're dreaming of a #BlackXmas.  That means no spending with white companies from Black Friday until New Years Day', the official site states.

Black Lives Matter calls for month-long boycott of 'white companies'.  The Black Lives Matter movement's national arm is leading a boycott of "white companies" until New Year's Day, encouraging supporters to help "end white-supremacist-capitalism" by visiting only Black-owned businesses during the holiday shopping season.  "White-supremacist-capitalism uses policing to protect profits and steal Black life," reads an Instagram post by the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.  "Skip the Black Friday sales and buy exclusively from Black-owned businesses."

BLM protesters scream at Kyle Rittenhouse supporters as tensions flare on courthouse steps.  Black Lives Matter protesters demonstrating on the steps of Kenosha's courthouse threatened on Tuesday to 'shut down' the city if Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted, as the National Guard were put on standby to deal with any potential unrest.  An activist with a megaphone, wearing a BLM hoodie, urged on his fellow protesters, chanting: 'If Kenosha don't get it, shut it down'.  He then began chanting: 'Seven shots in the back' — a reference to Jacob Blake, a black man who was shot seven times by a white officer in Kenosha on August 23, 2020.

Kenosha Police Are Letting BLM Assault People Right In Front Of The Courthouse During Rittenhouse Trial.  The outcome of the state's charges against Kyle Rittenhouse is now in the hands of the jury, and ahead of a possible verdict, authorities in Kenosha are asserting they are prepared.  "The Kenosha County Sheriff's Department and Kenosha Police Department understand and recognize the anxiety surrounding the Kyle Rittenhouse trial," said a statement released Tuesday by the agencies.  Authorities added that they currently have no reason to close roads, enact curfews or ask the community to modify daily routines.  But videos that are taken in front of the courthouse show that the police are not doing anything as BLM aggressively moves towards Rittenhouse supporters and in some cases attacks them for exercising their First Amendment rights!

BLM NYC Leader Who Threatened 'Riots' and 'Bloodshed' Walks off Interview When Called Out.  New York City Mayor-elect Eric Adams vowed last week that he will reinstate plainclothes, anti-crime police units in his violently out-of-control city.  "Shockingly," the units were disbanded by the worst mayor in the history of the known universe, soon-to-be-ex, Bill de Blasio.  "I'm going to put in place a plainclothes gun unit.  We must zero in on gun violence in our community," vowed Adams, on Thursday. [...] Somewhat surprising, Newsome later agreed to an interview with Fox News host and former NYPD cop Dan Bongino, to discuss the announcement by Adams and the BLM leader's threat of violence in response.  Bad idea.  [Video clip]

Terrorisim: Nets Ignore BLM Threatening to Bring 'Bloodshed' to NYC.  The broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) routinely exercise their power to raise local stories to national attention when they decide it helps the narrative, or squash it if it doesn't.  So, obviously, Wednesday's terroristic threats from New York City's Black Lives Matter leader Hawk Newsome were conspicuously absent Thursday evening even though he had said his group would bring "riots," "fire," and "bloodshed" (emphasis his) if Mayor-elect Eric Adams (D) tried to bring back the "anti-crime" unit.  While they were ignoring how the socialist-extremist organization was threatening to launch terrorist attacks on New York City, ABC's World News Tonight, the CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News were busy touting snow in the Midwest.

Never Trumpers and Black Lives Matter Have the Same Backer.  The press releases went out on schedule and the media rewrote them into news stories.  A group of "principled" Republicans was going to fundraise to support Democrat congressmen.  The stories rolled out on schedule from different media outlets while appearing nearly identical.  And the real story, as usual, was not what was on the page, but what had been deliberately left out.  Reuters described the Renew America Movement as a group of Never Trump Republicans "whose leadership includes former Republican Governors Christine Todd Whitman of New Jersey and Bill Weld of Massachusetts."  Hardly a single story mentioned the actual leaders.  The Renew America Movement was co-founded by Evan McMullin and his running mate Mindy Finn.  Its national political director, Joel Searby, who is quoted in the media's writeups, was the chief strategist for the McMullin campaign.  Donations to RAM go through Stand Up Republic, which is the anti-Trump group that McMullin and Finn originally set up.  The press release for the new pro-Democrat campaign even came from Stand Up Republic.  The media actually had to work not to mention McMullin or Stand Up Republic in its stories about the RAM campaign.  And the media did a fine job of lying by omission to the public in order to elect Democrats.

Feds Arrest Husband Of Prominent BLM Activist, Say He Illegally Pocketed $67,000 In COVID Unemployment Benefits.  Clark Grant, a founder of the Boston BLM-linked nonprofit "Violence For Boston" and the husband of a high profile BLM-tied activist, was arrested on Tuesday on pandemic unemployment and mortgage fraud charges.  Grant is accused of collecting more than $67,000 in pandemic unemployment benefits while at the same time working and taking home a full-time salary of close to $70,000 a year, according to federal court documents.  Grant is the husband of Monica Cannon-Grant, an influential leftist activist who rose to prominence during the BLM riots of 2020.

What Kind of Movement Is BLM?  If Black Lives Matter were a civil rights organization, one would reasonably expect its patron figure to be Martin Luther King, Jr., and its aspiration to be King's vision of a race-free America where individuals are judged on their merits and not by their skin color.  Instead, the revered figure and inspirational icon for Black Lives Matter activists is a designated terrorist and convicted cop killer:  Assata Shakur.  In the 1970s Shakur was a member of the Black Liberation Army, a group that robbed banks and murdered police officers to achieve a Marxist revolution.  Shakur is still wanted for the 1973 murder of Werner Foerster, a New Jersey state trooper who stopped her for a broken taillight on her car, whereupon she pulled out a gun and shot him.  The 34-year-old officer and Vietnam vet was lying wounded on the pavement pleading for his life when Shakur walked over and finished him off, execution-style.  Foerster left behind a wife and two young children.  Shakur was convicted of the murder but escaped from prison in 1979 with the help of left-wing terrorists, including Susan Rosenberg.

The Politicians Biggest Fear — BLM And Trump Supporters March Together Against Vaccine Mandates.  Black Lives Matter is an organization that supports anything that fits comfortably into their racism narrative.  The sporadic messaging from BLM's leaders attacks anything they deem racist.  Many of their talking-points are far from racist.  Virtually all of them are bogus assertions of white privilege across the United States.  Those who have followed BLM protests, launched into the public limelight after the death of George Floyd, can easily see the tendency to change their stance to fit the agenda.  Most of the narratives spewing from BLM activists have been in ardent support of the liberal left arm of the Democrat Party.  They march and support anything that might drag someone down with the over-used false reference that America is systemically racist.

Black Teacher Shows The Racist Swag Bag She Got From Her California School District.  Support for Black Lives Matter movement collapses among Whites and Hispanics, but also loses its popularity with the African-American community.  The reality of the BLM movement in action did not meet expectations.  That's particularly true since the riots coincided with and were followed by a wave of racist actions under the umbrella of Critical Race Theory's offshoot "antiracism."  While the Black Lives Matter movement remains an incredibly powerful force, fueled by hundreds of millions of dollars, it is losing popularity across demographic groups.  And a black teacher with a Jamaican heritage just proved that BLM s only bring segregation and not unity!  This is a prime example of what white liberals do and how they think.

Black Lives Matter leader calls Bill de Blasio's vaccine mandate 'modern day freedom papers'.  A leader of the Greater New York chapter of the Black Lives Matter movement is chastising New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio over a COVID-19 vaccine mandate and vaccine passport process for residents, equating it to "modern day freedom papers."  Chivona Newsome, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Greater NY who also ran as a candidate for New York's 15th Congressional District in 2020, spoke out against the "racist" mandate in a statement to Fox News.  "Although Mayor Bill De Blasio ran on progressives values, nothing in his tenure will attest to his campaign promises," Newsome said.  "The September 13th vaccine mandate is racist and specifically targets Black New Yorkers.  The vaccination passports are modern day Freedom Papers, which limit the free will of Black people."

I Fear Leftist Solutions Much More Than Actual Problems.  America's founding fathers named three essential rights to which all men were entitled:  Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  It's as profound as it is simple.  At this very moment, though, all three of these fundamental, God-given rights are under a full assault by the left. [...] Another obvious example came out of the Black Lives Matter movement as they called to defund the police.  Despite an overwhelming majority of black residents — in some of the hardest-hit urban communities, no less — demanding a strong police presence, the cure for a few rogue officers was to eliminate them all.  How is this working out?  Crime rates in these locations, especially murder rates, have returned to all-time highs.  A few bad cops might have killed one or two thugs by accident, but the alternative is now scores of bullet-ridden black bodies.  The cure (less police) is far worse and deadlier than the disease (moral decay in urban communities).

Black Lives Matter Is Threatening An 'Uprising' Against 'Racist' Vaccine Mandates.  It's a rule in the national media that vaccine hesitancy is worthy of shame and scorn, right up until it collides with their most precious cause, the Black Lives Matter movement.  Hesitant (white) nurses?  Outcast.  Hesitant (white) Facebook moms?  Shun.  Hesitant (white) Trump supporters?  Guillotine.  But there's oddly been no prescription for the Black Lives Matter crew in New York who are accusing the city of racial discrimination by mandating vaccines for public, indoor activity.  Hawk Newsome, the co-founder and chairman of Black Lives Matter Greater New York, was quoted Saturday in the New York Times saying that restaurants "are using vaccine mandates to enforce their racist beliefs and excluding black patrons."

Amazon Reverses Ad Ban for Book Investigating BLM, Cites 'Inaccurately Enforced' Policies.  Amazon on Thursday [9/16/2021] reversed its earlier decision to block an advertisement for a new book that is critical of the leadership of the Black Lives Matter movement, saying it had not properly enforced its own policies.  "BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution" is the latest book by Mike Gonzalez, a former reporter and opinion editor for The Wall Street Journal who is a senior fellow at The Heritage Foundation, parent organization of The Daily Signal.  The Heritage Foundation this week attempted to buy an ad on the digital platform of Amazon, the world's largest retailer, to promote Gonzalez's book.  However, Amazon notified Heritage on Tuesday that it had rejected the ad.  After Heritage officials appealed, Amazon reversed itself.

NYC butcher Fleisher's closed after staff walks out over BLM sign removal.  Brooklyn-based "rockstar butcher" Fleisher's has been forced to close its stores because dozens of workers reportedly walked off the job after the CEO removed Black Lives Matter and LGBTQ pride signs that employees had put in the storefront windows.  The company's website says all of its locations, its two stores in New York City and two others in Connecticut, are "temporarily closed."  A notice at Fleisher's Upper East Side shop said the store won't reopen until at least the end of August.  The beef between workers and management began last month, when Rob Rosania, a leading investor in the butcher, received a text from a pal in Westport, Conn. who was offended by BLM signs in the company's local storefront, Forbes reported.

Activist Shaun King lives lavishly in lakefront New Jersey home.  Shaun King has built his image on being a champion of the poor and disenfranchised, but the controversial civil rights activist lives like a one-percenter in a sprawling lakefront home, records show.  King, 41, moved earlier this year from a luxury two-bedroom apartment in downtown Brooklyn, to the five-bedroom, 3,000 square foot North Brunswick, NJ, property, with "a lakefront backyard" and gourmet kitchen, according to public records.  The property, surrounded by lush, tall trees, was purchased by King's wife, Rai-Tonicia King, a Ph.D. candidate and educator, in November 2020 for $842,000, public records show.  King has been dogged for years by allegations of shady dealings in his charitable efforts in movements he has founded — including a lack of transparency in money he has raised for several criminal justice initiatives he has backed.

BLM activist Shaun King moves into luxury five-bedroom lakefront home.  Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King, who claims he advocates for the poor and disenfranchised communities, has been living large in a luxury five-bedroom, 3,000 square foot New Jersey lakefront home.  King, who famously got upset when someone vandalized a George Floyd statue, but wanted statues of Jesus to be torn down, apparently moved away from his place in downtown Brooklyn earlier in 2021.  According to the New York Post, "the property, surrounded by lush, tall trees, was purchased by King's wife, Rai-Tonicia King, a Ph.D. candidate and educator, in November 2020 for $842,000."  The house, located on property in North Brunswick, New Jersey, purportedly boasts of five bedrooms and 3,000 square feet of living space.

More Americans Want 'Black Lives Matter Riots' Investigated Than January 6 Riot.  As Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi picks members of a select committee to investigate the riots of January 6, a new poll finds that many Americans believe she's focusing on the wrong riots.  One-third more Americans believe Congress should hold investigative hearings about last summer's "Black Lives Matter protests that sparked violence" than think lawmakers ought to probe the riot at the capitol on January 6.  In all, two out of three likely U.S. voters say they believe Congress should open an official investigation into "the violent protests," which blazed a trail of arson and looting through major and mid-sized cities nationwide.  On the other hand, fewer than half (49%) of Americans support Pelosi's investigation of the D.C. riot, in which rioters protesting the 2020 presidential election results stormed the capitol.

Affluent Dallas residents receive BLM letter urging them not to send their kids to Ivy League schools.  A social justice group has said it sent a letter to white Democrats in two wealthy Texas neighborhoods calling on them to pledge their children will not apply to Ivy League schools so that black students can get a spot instead.  Dallas Justice Now (DJN), which appears to have been set up recently, is asking white allies to commit to 'making sacrifices to correct centuries of injustice.'  The group is specifically calling on people to sign its 'college pledge' not to send their children to Ivy League or US News & World Report Top 50 schools 'and instead leave those spots open for students from Black, LatinX, and other marginalized backgrounds who were denied access to these institutions for hundreds of years.'

Update:  It looks like this story was a hoax.

The Perverse Agenda of Black Lives Matter.  If there remain citizens in America who, because of race or any other reason, are deprived of the benefits and protections of a free society, we should work to bring those benefits of freedom to them.  The answer is not to abandon the principles that make us a free country.  But this is what is happening.  Those who are the loudest and most aggressive about what is supposedly wrong don't want a free country.  Their complaint is not about absence of freedom, but who has power and who will be in charge and running the show.  Nothing could make this clearer than the recent bizarre statement of Black Lives Matter about the current civil unrest in Cuba.  Cuba is an unfree country.  It has been run by communists for years.  And, like all countries that are run by communists, the people there live deprived and oppressed.  This is not rhetoric.  This is fact.

Minnesota Summer Camp Replaces American Flag With BLM Flag.  Once upon a time in America, kids went to summer camp to be kids.  They swam, canoed and built campfires.  Kids went to camp to play and enjoy the outdoors. [...] Camp Warren is in northern Minnesota and is affiliated with the YMCA in Minneapolis.  Affluent whites from the Minnesota suburbs send their kids there, and it is saturated with leftist ideology in addition to sailing and smores.  The American flag at Camp Warren has been replaced by a Black Lives Matter flag.  Apparently the Stars and Stripes is oppressive, and it is better to fly a flag of a group that supports murderous Cuban communism.  It is also a warning to parents everywhere that the Left will not leave any aspect of American life untouched, not even summertime fun.  In the old days, camps might collect old equipment for campers, just because it would be helpful and nice.  These days, nothing is accomplished without the affiliated virtue-signaling.

The mayor herself isn't permanent.
Washington, DC Black Lives Matter Plaza To Be Permanent, Mayor Says.  Construction in Washington, D.C. commenced Monday to make Black Lives Matter Plaza a permanent installation in the nation's capital.  D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and the District Department of Transportation announced the plans Friday, reminding the public to expect lane closures.  Sixteenth Street NW between H and K Streets will be closed to through traffic while sidewalks will remain open to pedestrians and local access to businesses will be maintained, DDOT said.  DDOT said the lane closure is necessary to install roadway pavers, bollards and the permanent Black Lives Matter mural.

The Biden Regime Has Made Us All Enemies of the State.  This isn't a surprise to anyone paying attention.  Two months ago, the U.S. State Department draped embassies around the world with Black Lives Matter flags, and today BLM has pledged its allegiance to the communist Cuban regime while blaming the U.S. for Cuba's island prison of poverty, violence, and repression.  There has never been any doubt that BLM is a Marxist organization intent on destroying American freedoms, yet Democrats, corporate boards, and even Mitt Romney have sung its praises for years.  Hanging those insidious BLM flags on American consulates overseas was tantamount to hanging the hammer and sickle over the stars and stripes.  Their meaning was self-evident: the U.S. is under new Marxist management.  Still, too many corporate sellouts and political backstabbers honored BLM as some sort of paragon for civil rights, even as its members routinely engage in arson, larceny, intimidation, and murder.  Now that BLM has made its allegiance to America's communist enemies abundantly clear, will any of those corporate or political invertebrates walk back their support for BLM's pro-Castro movement?  Surely not.  They've chosen a side; they're totalitarian appeasers now, giving aid and comfort to those who wish America harm.

Ten Signs that the Age of Biden is Upon Us.  [#2] Claiming that BLM cares about Blacks and police oppression of them:  Not only does the rebellion in Cuba reveal the shortcomings of this socialist hellhole, but it forces Black Lives Matter to reveal its Marxist sympathies.  Despite ample evidence of police state brutality against the largely Brown and Black protestors, BLM has not raised a single objection.  This prompts the satire site Babylon Bee to suggest the organization change its name to "Black and Brown Lives Matter Unless They are Protesting Communism."  Cuba's leadership is after all lily White and, from the outset of the revolution, Castro and Che Guevara showed no sympathy to Cuban Blacks.  The psychotic sadist Guevara, whose portrait adorns T-shirts and other gear worn by rich Hollywood figures and American leftists everywhere, was clearest on the animus to Blacks.

The Biden Regime Has Made Us All Enemies of the State.  Two months ago, the U.S. State Department draped embassies around the world with Black Lives Matter flags, and today BLM has pledged its allegiance to the communist Cuban regime while blaming the U.S. for Cuba's island prison of poverty, violence, and repression.  There has never been any doubt that BLM is a Marxist organization intent on destroying American freedoms, yet Democrats, corporate boards, and even Mitt Romney have sung its praises for years.  Hanging those insidious BLM flags on American consulates overseas was tantamount to hanging the hammer and sickle over the stars and stripes.  Their meaning was self-evident:  the U.S. is under new Marxist management.  Still, too many corporate sellouts and political backstabbers honored BLM as some sort of paragon for civil rights, even as its members routinely engage in arson, larceny, intimidation, and murder.

Oh look:  BLM lavishly praised genocidal commie Fidel Castro in resurfaced tweet and blog post.  As we established yesterday, BLM's response to the protests against the communist regime in Cuba prove that the organization is a bunch of commie neckbeards that care little about equality or racial healing:  [Tweet]  Today, more of BLM's past praise for mass-murdering Marxists has come to light in the form of a tweet and blog post that praised Cuban dictator and genocidal communist Fidel Castro:  [Video clip]

BLM Praises Cuban Government.  Black Lives Matter posted a statement Wednesday praising the Cuban government amidst mass anti-communist protests.  The statement, posted to their Instagram and Twitter accounts — blamed the U.S. for the country's instability and credited the Cuban regime for granting "black revolutionaries" asylum, as reported by Fox News.  "Black Lives Matter condemns the U.S. federal government's inhumane treatment of Cubans, and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo," the statement reads.  "This cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cubans' right to choose their own government, is at the heart of Cuba's current crisis."

BLM blames 'cruel and inhumane' US embargoes for Cuba unrest.  Black Lives Matter has blamed the 'cruel and inhumane' US for the current unrest in Cuba, as the activists praised the Communist regime for harboring a convicted US cop killer and for its 'solidarity' with oppressed people.  The group sparked a furious backlash with the statement shared online following a week of violence on the island and furious protests over food shortages and rising prices.  BLM accused the US of causing the instability with its embargoes which have caused 'pain and suffering' for Cubans for 60 years in the message which was branded 'worse than embarrassing'.

Black Lives Matter blames US, praises Cuban regime, social media erupts.  Black Lives Matter faced fierce criticism late Wednesday after posting a statement that blasted the U.S. and praised Cuba's government while the island was destabilized by historic protests and violent crackdowns.  The statement — originally posted on Instagram and later tweeted and retweeted — blamed the U.S. embargo for the country's instability and credited the Cuban government for historically granting "Black revolutionaries" asylum.  Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, was quick to rebuke an initial tweet that linked to the statement.  "The extortionist ring known as the Black Lives Matter organization took a break today from shaking down corporations for millions & buying themselves mansions to share their support for the Communist regime in #Cuba," Rubio tweeted.

Black Lives Matter Releases a Horrific Statement on Cuba and It's Time for the Reckoning.  After reading this article, you'll understand why I feel rather good about my refusal to ever embrace Black Lives Matter as many Republican politicians did last summer, marching under their banner and repeating their slogan.  With the ongoing protests in Cuba against the communist dictatorship and its oppression, the silence from many on the left has been noticeable.  While you've gotten cowardly notes of "support" from the establishment, usually blaming COVID or economic issues for the unrest, other "social justice warriors" like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley have simply said nothing.  Yet, their favorite grifting, racist organization has finally spoken out, and it's one of the more horrific statements I've ever read on a political matter.

Black Lives Matter Says US Flag Is a Symbol of Hate.  The Black Lives Matter activist group, which reported 2020 earnings of $90 million dollars in a down economy, still can't seem to find happiness.  Despite that fact that co-founder Patrisse Cullors has managed to make a decent enough living to afford four homes across the United States, the group is still boohooing to anyone gullible enough listen.  BLM's latest claim is that the US Flag is a "symbol of hate".  On the Fourth of July, Utah's Black Lives Matter Chapter posted a message on Facebook saying:  "We know the person flying it is not safe to be around.  When we see this flag we know the person flying it is a racist.  When we see this flag we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do.  When we see this flag, we question your intelligence.  We know to avoid you.  It is a symbol of hatred."

Why Are They Woke?  There are lots of reasons why wokeism spread like wildfire once America lost its collective mind during the pandemic, quarantine, self-induced recession, and rioting of 2020.  Wokeism was never really about racism, sexism, or other -isms.  Instead, for some, it illustrated a psychological pathology of projection:  fobbing one's own concrete prejudices onto others in order to alleviate or mask them.  So should we laugh or cry that Black Lives Matter's self-described Marxist co-founder turns out to be a corporate grifter?  Patrisse Cullors has accumulated several upscale homes and is under investigation by the IRS for allegations of the misuse of funds from one of her foundations.  Is it the case that the more Cullors professes Marxist ideology and damns toxic whiteness, so all the more she feels at home living in a $1.4 million Topanga Canyon home, in an almost exclusively ritzy white neighborhood?

Non-profit founded by BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors fails to disclose at least $175,000 in donations to IRS.  Dignity and Power Now, a group founded by Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, has reportedly failed to report donations totaling at least $175,000 to the IRS.  The organization, founded in 2013, was created to help minority prisoners.  Cullors was listed as founder and board chairperson in 2018 paperwork, according to the New York Post.  Dignity and Power Now reportedly received at least $225,000 in 2016, but had told the IRS that the charity had not made more than $50,000 that year, according to public filings.  Filing over that $50,000 revenue threshold meant that the group would have to file a complete federal return, which would outline all of its spending and donations, the New York Post reported.

Black Lives Matter Promoted the Destruction of Israel.  It came to light during the past couple of months that Black Lives Matter Global Network's co-founder Patrisse Cullors called for the destruction of Israel in 2015 — an agenda shared by the terrorist group Hamas.  The Daily Mail is not a particularly reliable source, but Cullors speaks for herself in the linked YouTube video. [...] No decent person or organization can continue to associate with an entity that advocates the actual destruction of the world's only Jewish-majority nation, and this includes (1) the Democratic Party, (2) corporations that support BLM and/or allow their workers to wear BLM attire on the job, and (3) universities such as Hardin-Simmons.  In fairness to Starbucks, however, the company probably did not know about Cullors's reprehensible statements.  Neither did I until recently.  While BLM has not gone so far as to voice support for the terrorist organization Hamas, it has nonetheless shilled for Hamas by referring to Israel as "settler colonialism."

Mike Brown Sr Joins Group Demanding To Know Where Tens of Millions of Donations to BLM Have Been Spent.  Michael Brown Sr, the father of Mike Brown from Ferguson Missouri, has joined a group of activists demanding to know where all the millions of donations to Black Lives Matter have gone.  The BLM group has long been known to be a political assembly of Marxist organizers from various activist groups who use race as their method and manner to achieve political objectives.  The Obama-era DOJ civil rights division headed by Tom Perez, now the DNC Chairman, originally worked on merging the "Dream Defenders" group with the more radical Black Panther movement right after Trayvon Martin in Orlando, Florida.  The regional organizers for the effort stemmed from the Chicago network of revolutionary communists (RevCom), the original political group who created the Obama movement in 2005 to 2007.

Black Lives Matter infighting reaches a boiling point as members demand 'accountability'.  Amid increased scrutiny of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullor's lavish spending, including her reported purchases of multiple homes totaling upward of $3 million and the installation of fencing and an electric gate around one of those homes, the original ten BLM chapters are demanding more accountability and transparency from the BLM global network.  The BLM infighting comes on the heels of Cullors announcing she would step down from her role as the BLM foundation executive director as questions surrounding her finances swirled.  Cullors, however, denied that her decision to resign had anything to do with that controversy, insisting she had planned to step away for more than a year.  But Cullors' move to step down is not enough to satisfy a growing number of BLM chapters' demand for change within the organization.  Referring to initial calls for more transparency and accountability from the "BLM 10," the name for the ten original BLM chapters, a new group, deemed the "BLM 10 Plus" is now speaking out.

BLM infighting escalates over demands for 'accountability' and 'transparency'.  Black Lives Matter is disintegrating into squabbling over money, even though it won't frankly admit the base motivation behind the fights that have erupted and escalated yesterday [6/11/2021]. [...] Monica Showalter prophetically saw Black Lives Matter starting to fall apart over money almost two weeks ago, and events yesterday confirmed her prediction.  Jon Street of Fox News reports on the grass roots local chapters that are demanding "accountability" and "transparency" in the wake of earlier revelations about the lavish spending of co-founder Patrisse Cullors.  The reactions escalated yesterday, as the news that she has spent at least $35,000 on fencing and an electronic gate for that luxury compound became known.

Beijing's Lies Matter:  Chinese communists nurture BLM to destabilize America.  One year after George Floyd died in the custody of Minneapolis police, one year after riots ravaged the nation in his name, the founder of Black Lives Matter's chapter in nearby St. Paul quit.  "After a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis," Rashard Turner said in a video May 26.  One week later, Turner provided specifics in an interview with Fox News.  "When you call for a moratorium on charter schools, that is a direct attack on black families, on black children," Turner said.  "We know that charter schools are creating opportunities.  Anyone who is in opposition to school choice, charter schools, I would say they're racist.  "I was an insider in Black Lives Matter, and I learned the ugly truth."  That ugly truth goes beyond BLM's professional hypocrisy.  It extends to an even uglier truth:  BLM knowingly plays a pivotal role in China's quest to attain geopolitical and ideological supremacy by destabilizing the United States.  BLM's role is so pivotal that many of the group's leaders and affiliated bodies have relationships with organizations that are connected to China through fronts or diplomatic contacts.  "Black Lives Matter is a Communist organization 100 percent, tied to foreign Communists and directly to the Communist Party of China," said Trevor Loudon, an author and filmmaker from New Zealand who has studied Marxist movements for more than 30 years.

Have BLM Activists Realized Yet That Defunding the Police Is Racist?  In their zeal to defund police departments across the country, Black Lives Matter (BLM), fellow activist groups and other radical ideologues haven't yet realized that what they're doing is racist by their own definition.  The cities that the "defund" movement has hit the hardest have seen remarkable increases in crime.  And BLM-inspired policies to "reimagine" the criminal justice system routinely result in more hardened criminals being quickly released from jail.  The victims of these crimes [are the] very minority communities the movement claims to ostensibly support.

Democrats silent on sexual assault allegations involving 62 children.  On Monday [5/31/2021], national media reported an explosive story in Colorado.  A prominent Black Lives Matter activist, socialist, and Denver Public Schools board member, Tay Anderson, stepped back "from everyday board functions" while an independent investigation looks into startling allegations that he sexually abused 62 current and former students.  The alleged assaults range from unwanted touching to "violent rape" of students as young as 14 years old.  Sixty-one of these students are purportedly illegal immigrants or recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.  The new allegations come two months after the group BLM5280, and past associates of Anderson's at the (now-defunct) youth-led gun-control group Never Again Colorado accused him of past sexual assault and harassment.  Media reports about the accusations against Anderson, 22, have barely scratched the surface.  Moreover, this saga reveals a broader story.

BLM "Protesters" Surround A Car And Pull Out A Gun — The Police Search For The Driver Who Served Them Instant Justice.  For nearly a year, Jefferson Square Park in downtown Louisville, often called Injustice Square, Breeway, or simply "the square," has been a place where multiple rots started.  The mainstream media however likes to call these riots peaceful protests.  Protest in downtown Louisville led to 17 arrests, five cars towed, one confiscated gun, and a search for a driver who hit a protester with their car.  Police provided video captured on Real-Time Crime Center cameras, which are on the Metro Corrections building by the corner of Sixth and Liberty streets, that showed an individual in a car appearing to be confronted by about 10 protesters on Liberty.  The car drove forward, running directly into an individual and flipping the person over the hood onto the street.  [Video clip]

Here's How Wealthy Some Of America's Most Prominent Socialists Are.  Some of America's highest-profile advocates for socialism live quite luxurious lifestyles compared to average, working-class Americans.  The average income for individual Americans is $35,977; for a household, it's $68,703. [...] Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors [...] was an original co-founder of Black Lives Matter, and she's a self-described Marxist.  Despite her devotion to the father of socialist theory, Cullors had no issue making up to $20,000 per month as the leader of a Los Angeles-based jail reform group, and she's purchased at least four homes worth a combined total of more than $3 million across the country since 2016.  Cullors stepped down from her role with BLM following extensive reporting from the Daily Caller News Foundation last month.

BLM Harass A Disabled Woman And Jump On Her Car While Blocking Traffic — No MSM Coverage.  Black Lives Matter protesters in Racine Wisconsin bullying an elderly disabled motorist, and disrupting the traffic during last night's demonstration were caught on video which also shows no police presence as the chaos unfolds.  The woman in the video that was sent to us this evening is desperately trying to call help!  Of course, the sender confirmed that he sent this video to every major news outlet but everyone ignored the fact that BLM harras a disabled person.

Violent Minneapolis Black Lives Matter Mob Looting Sneaker Shop, Target, Walgreens, CVS and More.  A large mob of Black Lives Matter militants looted a Target late Thursday evening [6/3/2021] in response to a fatal police shooting in the city.  Winston "Boogie" Smith, 32, was reportedly wanted on a state warrant for being a felon in possession of a firearm.  After being stopped in his vehicle by law enforcement, the U.S. Marshals Service say he "produced a handgun."  [Video clips]

"BLM has been co-opted".  Rashad Turner, founder of Black Lives Matter Saint Paul, quit the group this month because BLM national leaders don't care about black people.  His main issue was its call for a moratorium on new charter schools.  He told The 74, "Our public education system has people who are sometimes literally dying for the lack of educational opportunity.  And when I think of charter schools in my community here in St.  Paul and their benefit to students of color — low-income students — to call for a moratorium or an end to charter schools just lets me know that something funny is going on.  I've kind of had feelings of trickery or different things going on that didn't align with my beliefs or value system."  He also is not happy with the NAACP for opposing charter schools.  He said, "I think they throw out the propaganda and say, 'Well, this is going to eliminate the public schools.'  News flash:  charter schools are public schools."

It's Getting Creepily Nazi-Like in Here.  Seeing those giant "Black Lives Matter" flags being unfurled at embassies around the world last week was another "surely this can't be happening" moment for Americans watching the federal government's steady embrace of evil.  It was as if Heinrich Himmler had risen from the grave to lead the Democratic Party in ordering the draping of Schutzstaffel (SS) flags over the entrances to civic buildings of conquered territories.  Except all those embassies and consulates are on American soil, so the revolting reality was that the Marxist paramilitary "brownshirts" of BLM had succeeded in conquering the United States.  It sent a shiver down my spine.  Antifa and BLM engineered months of violence and property destruction last year that eclipsed anything in America's history, but to this day, official state propaganda considers them "mostly peaceful" civil rights "protesters."  Any organization that burns businesses to the ground, threatens homeowners, blocks traffic in order to instigate beat-downs on civilians, and routinely engages in violence and intimidation against fellow citizens is at war with civil society and stands opposed to civil liberties.

Mothers of Tamir Rice, Breonna Taylor Criticize Black Lives Matter: 'Benefitting Off the Blood of Our Loved Ones'.  The mothers of several people whose names have been invoked by Black Lives Matter activists panned the group's co-founder, Patrisse Cullors, for benefitting "off the blood" of their family members.  Cullors announced last week that she would be departing the organization, coming after reports disclosed her finances and real estate holdings.  "They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won't even talk to us," Samaria Rice, the mother of a 12-year-old boy, Tamir Rice, who was shot by police in Cleveland, told the New York Post.  Rice added that she contacted Black Lives Matter to help in re-opening a federal investigation into her son's death in 2014, exchanging several emails with Cullors years ago before nothing came of it.  "I don't believe she is going anywhere," Rice said of the BLM co-founder.  "It's all a facade," she continued.  "She's only saying that to get the heat off her right now."

Black Lives Matter looks like it's falling apart.  After being lionized in the press, and drawing in tens of millions of dollars from giant corporations desperate to prove their bona fides to its racial-grievance bandwagon, Black Lives Matter seems to be falling apart.  That's a pretty reasonable conclusion to reach, given there don't seem to be any positive stories about the group coming out in the press anymore.  They're all tales of scandal, corruption, and exploitation, not surprising in an organization that's been flooded with such a tidal wave of money and run by "trained Marxists."  There are a lot of these stories.  It probably started with the mother of Breonna Taylor, a young woman who died in a police shooting, who criticized the organization for its exploitative ways.  That may have surprised some people, but her argument was logical and believable: she said the organization not only did nothing to help the rest of Taylor's family, but raised millions of dollars for itself through the use of her daughter's name, while sharing none of its largesse.

Denver School Board Director, a BLM Activist, Accused of Molesting 62 Children.  Denver school board director Tay Anderson, a BLM activist and possibly the youngest black elected official in Colorado, has been accused of sex crimes ranging from inappropriate touching to "violent acts of rape" by 62 youngsters, 61 of whom are here illegally and likely seemed like easy targets, and one of whom is as young as 14 years old.  Ian Miles Cheong was quick to jump on Anderson's Twitter throat, with a copy of Anderson's tweet where he calls for BLM riots and declares that antifa isn't real.  [Tweet]  The Washington Post referred to Anderson as the "face of Denver's protests."  The Colorado Herald posted texts from Anderson to children, many with heart emojis saying, "Let's be friends."  There is a petition on calling for Anderson's arrest.

Ignorant Liberals Pushing Vaccine Passports Don't Get Who That Would Really Hurt and Discriminate Against.  We saw after BLM/Antifa rioting and demanding to "defund the police," that the cities that moved in that direction saw a big spike in crime, shootings and murders.  Among the people being adversely affected by this, black people.  So the very people BLM claims they're fighting for with all this are some of the people being harmed by the defunding as well as the rioting.

Black Lives Matter St. Paul Founder Says He 'Resigned' After Learning the 'Ugly Truth'.  A Black Lives Matter chapter founder in Minnesota has resigned, claiming that the organization isn't concerned about helping black communities or helping improve the education quality in Minneapolis, according to a video published last week.  Rashard Turner, the founder of a Black Lives Matter chapter in neighboring St. Paul, said he started the branch in 2015 but became disillusioned roughly a year after becoming "an insider" within the left-wing organization, according to a video released by TakeCharge — a group that rejects various provisions promoted by Black Lives Matter, including critical race theory-linked claims that the United States is inherently racist.  "After a year on the inside, I learned they had little concern for rebuilding black families, and they cared even less about improving the quality of education for students in Minneapolis," Turner said in the video.

Former Black Lives Matter Activist: 'I Learned the Ugly Truth'.  A former Black Lives Matter (BLM) activist who now serves as executive director of the Minnesota Parent Union revealed he "learned the ugly truth" about BLM, including that the radical group has little concern for rebuilding black families and even less for improving education for black children.  In a video published Wednesday [5/26/2021] by TakeCharge, a Minnesota-based, black-led movement that rejects Critical Race Theory (CRT) and woke culture, Rashad Turner described how he became a founder of BLM in St. Paul, but came to realize, after only a year on the inside of the organization, that caring for black lives, black children, and black families was the least of the radical group's concerns.

'It's all a facade': Mothers slam BLM co-founder for profiting off their sons' deaths.  Mothers who have lost their sons during police shooting incidents are criticizing Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who recently announced that she was parting ways with the group.  "They are benefiting off the blood of our loved ones, and they won't even talk to us," Samaria Rice, the mother of a 12-year-old boy who was fatally shot by Cleveland police in 2014, told the New York Post.  "I don't believe she is going anywhere."  Cullors, the executive director of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, recently announced she was leaving the organization amid controversies surrounding the group's finances and her personal acquisition of $3.2 million in real estate purchases.

Watch BLM co-founder explicitly call for 'the end' of Israel.  Patrisse Cullors, the co-founder of the radical leftist organization Black Lives Matter, is on video calling for the end to Israel.  The National Pulse uncovered the video clip that dates back to 2015.  She's appearing on a panel called "Globalizing Ferguson:  Racialized Policing and International Resistance," which was organized by Harvard's Human Rights Program.  She said, "Palestine is our generation's South Africa, and if we don't step up boldly and courageously to end the imperialist project that's called Israel, we're doomed."

It's not a smear campaign if it's entirely factual.
BLM Founder Patrisse Cullors Resigns as Executive Director After 'Right-Wing Smear Campaign' Over Her Real Estate Buying Spree.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors resigned as executive director after what she called a smear campaign from 'right wing groups' over her real estate buying spree.  Ms. Cullors founded Black Lives Matter 6 years ago and enriched herself, lived high on the hog and bought millions of dollars in real estate.  Patrisse Khan-Cullors, a self-described "trained Marxist" has bought not just one, but four high-end homes, according to a new report.  The militant leftist also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort.

BLM founder Patrisse Cullors resigns.  The woman who sits atop 60 million dollars' worth of donated funds, after the unexplained departure of her ostensibly charitable organization's co-founders, failing to file legally required financial disclosures, and buying a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio, surprised everyone yesterday [5/27/2021] by announcing her resignation.  Claiming that it has nothing to do with criticism of her multi-million-dollar real estate buying spree and complaints of financially stiff-arming other BLM groups, Patrisse Cullors:  "announced Thursday that she is stepping down as executive director of the movement's foundation. [...]"

Woman In A White Car Serves Instant Justice To BLM Rioters Who Were Blocking The Road.  Police in North Carolina has arrested a woman who was in a car that was stopped by BLM rioters in the street in Elizabeth City.  She's charged with two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill & more.  She may face hate crime charges too.  Lisa Michelle O'Quinn, 41, was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill by use of a motor vehicle, one count of careless and reckless conduct and one count of unsafe movement, Elizabeth City Police said in a news release.  Investigators said they were still determining if the incident was a hate crime.

The Editor says...
The people who were illegally blocking the road and intimidating passing motorists are ignored by the cops, while a woman who was trying to escape is arrested.  Yes, her car is technically a deadly weapon, but she was being held hostage.  This is what juries are for.

Biden State Dept.  Urging U.S. Embassies to Fly BLM Flags to Mark 1-Year Anniversary of George Floyd's Death.  The Biden State Department is encouraging all U.S. "Diplomatic and Consular posts" to display Marxist Black Lives Matter flags on May 25 to mark the one year anniversary of the death of George Floyd, according to a memo obtained by Human Events reporter Jack Posobiec.  [Tweet]  The memo, signed by Secretary of State Antony Blinken, said the United States would be among "many in the international community" honoring the career criminal. [...] The vandalism and looting that followed the death of Floyd reportedly cost the insurance industry up to $2 billion, more than any other violent demonstrations in recent history.  At least 25 Americans were killed during the unrest, according to the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data project (ACLED).  Additionally, the radical organization's "Defund the Police" agitation has led to a massive surge in violent crime throughout the nation.

Black Lives Matter Supporter at Capitol Breach Said He 'Brought My Megaphone to Instigate' Trump Supporters:  DOJ.  The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed new charges against reported Black Lives Matter activist John Sullivan for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol breach, saying that Sullivan allegedly told others later that he brought along a megaphone to incite riots inside the building.  According to court documents filed last week by federal prosecutors, Sullivan, of Utah, is facing new weapons charges.  Sullivan, in statements online and in reports, said he attended a number of Black Lives Matter protests last year, posted numerous anti-police and anti-Trump statements, and also allegedly posted support on Twitter for armed revolution.  After leaving the Capitol on Jan. 6, Sullivan was seen, according to federal prosecutors, telling a witness that he "brought my megaphone to instigate [expletive]" and wanted to "make these Trump supporters [expletive] all this [expletive] up" inside the Capitol building.

Drive-by gunmen shot 'Black Panther of Oxford' Sasha Johnson in the head as they opened fire on house party at 3am.  Friends have held a vigil for a British Black Lives Matter leader who took a bullet in the head when a London gang carried out a botched drive-by shooting to assassinate a rival at the end of an all-day party.  Demonstrators gathered at the bandstand in Ruskin Park, Lambeth, to 'pray' for Sasha Johnson, 27 — the self-styled 'Black Panther of Oxford' who called for the police to be defunded after the murder of George Floyd and helped lead the 'Rhodes Must Fall' campaign to topple controversial statues.  The activist is fighting for her life in hospital following the attack in Peckham, which her political party claimed came after she received multiple death threats.

Head BLM Thug In The UK, Who Tweated About Enslaving Whites, Has Been Shot In The Head Outside Party.  A leading British Black Lives Matter agitator is fighting for her life today after receiving a gunshot wound to the head.  Sasha Johnson was apparently caught in the crossfire in a shooting outside a party.  She was found critically wounded after police were called to a house on Consort Road in Peckham shortly before 3 am yesterday.  Neighbors described hearing shots, a "blood-curdling scream" and a car screeching off.  Armed police were scrambled to the scene as a manhunt was launched.

NYT Warns Dems:  BLM Is A Loser.  In a major story today the NYT seems to be warning Dems to back off the BLM hoax, because it's about to cost them dearly.  An unspoken subtext — because it cuts too close to the ideological heart of the left — could be that years of White Privilege and White Supremacist hate narratives from the Left are coming home to roost.  Riots?  Sky high murder rates?  It seems the NYT hasn't even heard of those aspects of the BLM phenomenon, but I'm betting everyone else has.

NY Times Can't Figure out Reason for 'Rapid Decline' in Support for BLM Last Year.  The New York Times has an opinion piece out — "Support for Black Lives Matter Surged Last Year.  Did It Last?"  They note how immediately after the death of George Floyd, support for BLM surged.  But then, after June 3, it took a precipitous drop, and as the summer went on, it declined to even less support for BLM than there had been before Floyd's death among some voters.  The article said that among some voters, including Republicans, that it turned to outright opposition.  [Tweet]

BLM co-founder called Police a 'Terrorist Organization' - says she always wanted to fight them.  BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors had once referred to police as a "terrorist organization" and says she always wanted to fight them.  Cullors said this back in 2015 while she was "speaking to students at King's College London as part of the Ferguson Solidarity Tour of the UK."  Some of the things Patrisse Cullors said are: [...]

Black Lives Matter 'stands in solidarity' with Palestinians, vows to fight for 'Palestinian liberation'.  The leading Black Lives Matter organization declared "solidarity with Palestinians" Monday, a week after Hamas terrorists in Gaza began firing a relentless barrage of rockets into Israel, indiscriminately shelling civilian targets as well as dropping some missiles short and blowing up buildings within its territory.  "Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians," the group tweeted.  "We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. [...]"  The announcement prompted a "thank you" tweet from the controversial Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, or BDS, which has for years called for an economic embargo of Israel.

Charity Experts Sound Off On BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors' Potential Self-Dealing.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors was identified in a press release as co-chair of an art company that has profited from several activist groups that call Cullors a co-founder and leader, which charity experts say amounts to self-dealing and raises ethical and legal questions.  Black Lives Matter (BLM) Global Network Foundation, BLM PAC and Reform LA Jails — three activist groups Cullors claims to have co-founded and led — have provided business to the art company, Trap Heals, the Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.  Trap Heals was founded and run by Damon Turner, the father of Cullors' only child, the DCNF found.  "I feel personally and from an ethical perspective, there are a huge number of problems here," longtime charity ethics expert Doug White told the DCNF.

BLM co-founder, with $3M real estate portfolio, says Black home-ownership is a way to 'disrupt white supremacy'.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who has a real estate portfolio worth more than $3 million, on Saturday shared a report about the history of racism in the housing market.  "Black Americans And The Racist Architecture of Homeownership," is part of an NPR documentary series, "We Hold These Truths," on American democracy.  According to the report, Black homeownership in the United States has barely budged in the last half-century:  In 1970, the national Black homeownership rate was 41.8%; in 2019, is was 42.3%.  On her Instagram page, Cullors, 37, thanked the outlet for "highlighting the history of racism inside the housing market."

BLM Protester:  "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  Video footage from Black Lives Matter and left-wing riots in Bellevue, Washington this week shows a female agitator repeatedly shrilling, "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  Other rioters also chime in to voice agreement with the insurrectionist, black supremacist narrative.  "I can't wait until black people hang you!" the protester screams at an onlooker, who is caught off guard and says, "Wait, what was that?  Do you want to say it again?"  "Um yeah," the female agitator responds, taking a deep breath before bellowing, "I can't wait until black people lynch white people!"  [Video clip]

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton Gets Involved After Plano Police Officer Allows BLM-Antifa to Illegally Block Traffic, Brandish Weapon.  On Friday [5/7/2021] video was released of an armed Black Lives Matter-Antifa mob illegally blocking traffic in Plano, Texas.  One man got out of his truck, confronted the mob and started screaming at them to get [...] out of the road!  One of the left-wing protesters pulled out a weapon (presumably a pistol) and pointed it at the driver who confronted the mob.  The Plano police officer took the side of the BLM-Antifa mob and allowed the dangerous left-wing militia to illegally block the highway.  [Video clip]  The man who attempted to clear the road was doxxed by leftists and charged while the law-breaking traffic-blockers walk free!  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton got involved since the Plano police chief refused to arrest the lawbreakers.

Driver Beaten Badly After Armed BLM Stop His Car in Frightening Encounter.  Over the past year, we've seen some very violent and/or out-of-control encounters because of the dangerous habit that the BLM has trying to block the street and stop drivers from going through a 'protest' area.  We reported on an incident in Plano, Texas, where there was an armed standoff and the police seemed more disturbed with the driver than they were the crazies blocking all the cars in the road.  But, that was just one of many.  BLM does this all over the country.  On Thursday afternoon [5/6/2021] in Portland, they severely injured a handyman, Joseph Hall, who was unlucky enough to turn into a street where one of their 'protests' was, according to the NY Post.  Hall said he was coming home from a repair job nearby when he was cut off by a moped.  Then the moped followed him and the BLM folks converged to stop his truck to cut off his truck.  As you can see from the video, multiple BLM folks were armed.

Here's Why Plano Police Did Nothing After BLM Mob Pulled Gun On Angry Texas Driver.  Yesterday morning [5/8/2021] a video surfaced where a patriot who looks like a real giant decided to face BLM rioters who were blocking a highway in Texas.  Activists in Plano, a city about 20 miles north of Dallas, marched through the streets on Sunday to raise awareness about the death of Marvin Scott III.  The 26-year-old black man died while in police custody at a county jail in March.  Seven officers were fired and one resigned over the incident, which was ruled a homicide in April.  In a now-viral video, demonstrators are seen blocking an intersection as they shout "Black Lives Matter" and wave signs reading "stop killing us" and other slogans.  A large column of automobiles can be seen forming as motorists wait for the road to clear.  Suddenly, a large man wearing sunglasses weaves between the stopped cars and heads straight towards the protesters.  The brave patriot faced the group and one of the rioters pulled a gun on him, the man was not afraid and even faced the cowardly cop who didn't do anything about it.

Millionaire BLM Founder Admits She's A Marxist, Says She's Proud Of Comparisons To Mao\.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who describes herself as a "trained Marxist" while also owning four homes in high-end neighborhoods worth more than $3.2 million, celebrated comparisons of the American left-wing movement to the deadly Chinese Cultural Revolution orchestrated by Mao Zedong.  In a 2010 video of a United States Social Forum panel on "Transformative Organizing Theory" unearthed by the National Pulse, Cullors shares a story of a young activist in Arizona who showed interest in a left-wing book Cullors was promoting and compared it to Mao's "Little Red Book."  "He grabbed the book," Cullors said, referring to "The 7 Components of Transformative Organizing Theory" by Eric Mann, "and he said 'it's like Mao's red book.'"  Cullors was elated.

Who funds the riotous American Left & why?  Why do giant corporations and billionaires fund Black Lives Matter and Antifa, both avowed socialist groups?  And why do the leftists accept their aid?  They both want a kind of socialism, but only one of them could get their way.  If you're at all familiar with the corporate and billionaire funding sources behind Black Lives Matter and Antifa and the socialist commitments of these groups and their leaders, you've probably wondered why the 'capitalist class' would support a movement whose doctrine is apparently antithetical to their own interests.  Aren't these funders capitalists after all, and don't capitalists naturally oppose socialism?  And why do American leftists dance like marionettes attached to strings pulled by globalist billionaires?  Don't they understand that they're actually serving the masters they claim to oppose?

Portland BLM/Antifa Draw Guns on Drivers to Enforce No-Go Zone in Broad Daylight.  Portland's revolutionaries from Black Lives Matter and antifa took over a busy street at noon on Wednesday and pulled guns on drivers who dared try to dart past the mob.  The groups were holding a rally for a gangland shooter who was killed by police in 2018.  That shooting was ruled justified.  The chaotic scene included guns being drawn on white drivers by the multiracial BLM and antifa protesters and one driver drew his own weapon in reply.  Someone deployed pepper spray.

American Patriot Confronts BLM For Blocking The Road, Then Confronts The Police For Doing Nothing When They Pulled A Gun On Him.  In April 2020 Democrats, Black Lives Matter, Hollywood, NBA, the tech giants, and Major US Corporations launched their official War on Police across the United States.  The consequences of their actions have been devastating, resulting in 1,990 more homicides in urban centers this past year.  The Democrat War on Civil Society resulted in a 33% increase in homicides across the major urban centers across the United States.  We can all blame this on Democrats.  But what happens when the Police themselves protect BLM who wants to abolish them instead of honest taxpaying patriots.

BLM Releases New List of 7 Extremist Demands; Two Target Donald Trump.  Black Lives Matter, a political outfit masquerading as a social justice group, has issued a new list of 7 "demands."  As if there were any doubt, BLM has made it clear that it is a radical arm of the Democratic Party.

Michelle Obama:  Black Lives Matter 'taking to the streets because they have to'.  Michelle Obama said in a new interview that Black people live with a constant fear of discrimination and injustice and that Black Lives Matter activists are "taking to the streets" not because they want to, but "because they have to."  In an interview with "CBS This Morning" that will air Monday [5/10/2021], the former first lady said there's still a long road ahead after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted last month in the murder of George Floyd.  "We know that while we're all breathing a sigh of relief over the verdict, there's still work to be done," Mrs. Obama said.

BLM Founder [is] Happy That Her Book Gets Compared To Mao's Little Red Book.  In this recently uncovered video found by The National Pulse you can see Patrisse Cullors, our "trained Marxist" serial-mansion-buying friend, laughing and being happy about the fact that her book reminded someone of Mao's Little Red Book.  [Video clip]

New Jersey Police Officer Fired For Calling BLM Protesters "Terrorists".  We have been discussing the termination of public employees and others for their postings on social media or public displays.  The latest case is out of New Jersey where former Hopewell Township police officer Sara Erwin was fired recent over a June 2020 posting on Facebook in which she referred to Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters as "terrorists."  There remains an uncertain line of what political or social views are tolerated and what are barred on social media.  Indeed, Sgt. Mandy Gray was suspended and demoted for simply liking the June 2020 post.  Gray was the first female officer hired in Hopewell Township and became the first female sergeant in 2019, according to  Erwin insists that she posted the statement after she and her colleagues were faced with violent protests and family members who were traumatized by images on television of officers being attacked.

BLM releases new list of demands, including permanently banning Trump from 'all digital media platforms'.  Black Lives Matter released an updated set of demands and is giving people the opportunity to sign their name onto the new list.  "We are joining Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Cori Bush, Rep. Jamaal Bowman, and others who are demanding Trump be immediately convicted in the United States Senate," reads the first demand on the BLM website.  "Trump must also be banned from holding elected office in the future."  The group also called on former President Donald Trump to be permanently banned from "all digital media platforms," arguing he uses the platforms "recklessly and irresponsibly to spread lies and disinformation."  Turning their attention to Trump loyalists in Congress, the activist group demanded that all GOP lawmakers that "stoked Trump's conspiracy theories and encouraged the white supremacists to take action to overturn the election" be expelled from Congress.

BLM puts out a new list of demands, targeting President Trump, or else.  Activists from Black Lives Matter, not happy with merely defunding the police or raking in huge corporate donations as their objective, now want President Trump banned from all digital media and future office.  That's the report from the Washington Examiner, which notes that they've put out and updated their list of demands: [...] This, in their case, is a shakedown, given the damage they cause to cities — burning, looting, rioting — when they don't get their way.  So they're not really about black lives mattering anymore; they're now about silencing and banning President Trump, and throwing in a lot of praise for Joe Biden, as the list of demands unrelated to black lives at all continues.  Seems the mission creep has expanded, which raises questions about how sincere they were about the original one.  It's all starting to look a little political, the sort of thing that's called PAC activity, and incompatible with their non-profit status, whatever their murky finances might allow them to be.

BLM-Antifa Rioters Target Upscale Restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.  BLM and/or Antifa goons targeted an upscale restaurant in Louisville restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky this evening.  The patrons were having none of it as they faced the mob and taunted them like, 'Come on, Let's go!" [...] Some tweets are coming out of Kentucky tonight indicating BLM and Antifa are in full force again.  It's spring so the rioters are gonna riot.  Noticeably none were wearing Trump hats.

BLM and NAACP are slammed for their silence over racist 'Uncle Tim' attacks on GOP Senator Scott.  Black Lives Matter and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People have been harshly criticized by Republicans for failing to condemn the viral 'Uncle Tim' reference to Senator Tim Scott on Wednesday [4/28/2021].  Scott was compared to the racist 'Uncle Tom' trope that depicts black people as subservient after delivering the GOP rebuttal to President Joe Biden's speech before Congress in which he defended the country as not racist.  Scott spoke extensively about race, and made the point that while he had personally experienced discrimination, he did not believe the United States was an inherently racist country.

Diamond Life:  BLM founder dropped $26,000 at luxury Malibu resort, Daily Caller reports.  Looks like it's not just mansions for smooth operator Patrisse Cullors, who co-founded Black Lives Matter.  She's also into stretches at luxury resorts, with some very curious accounting. [...] Some of it yes, was for conference space, so some kind of meeting may have happened.  But a lot of it was not, and it was done in a three-month window in 2019. Self-described "trained Marxist" Cullors elsewhere has dropped a cool $3.2 million on four houses and mansions, at least two of them in the Los Angeles area.  She couldn't hold these off-the-record "meetings" in one of those places?  Sounds a little funny.

BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors in Hot Water Again Over Lavish Spending.  BLM Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors is under scrutiny again for lavish spending.  The self-proclaimed Marxist previously came under fire for buying multiple houses totaling over $3 million in value.  Her defense for how a Marxist could justify that kind of capitalist indulgence fell short.  Now, it's been revealed that one of Cullors "reform" organizations dropped $26,000 for "meetings" at a Malibu, CA resort. [...] There are legal and moral issues at play here.  The group is apparently some kind of political fundraising arm, therefore they are subject to some campaign finance laws.  What exactly those are, I can't offer any insight into.  There's no chance any prosecutor would touch this with a ten-foot pole anyway.  It's too small potatoes when compared to the possible backlash.

The New Antiracism Is the Old Racism.  Until just a few years ago, racial differences, according to polls, were more or less receding.  Intermarriage between racial groups is at historic highs.  But by 2014-2015, with the birth of Black Lives Matter, its courting by the Obama Administration, and the emergence of the electronic social media mob and cancel culture, such progress seems to have ended.  We have ceased seeing race as increasingly incidental, rather than essential to who we are.  The benchmarks of the Back Lives Matter and affiliated woke movements are overt racism, systemic untruth, and the hypocritical privilege of their elite architects.

Black Lives Matter Protesters Block Traffic on Brooklyn Bridge, Clash With Police.  Black Lives Matter and affiliated protesters blocked traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City on Saturday night, leading NYPD officers to make arrests.  Video footage showed the demonstrators crossing the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn into Manhattan before squaring off with officers.  Some officers deployed pepper spray.  Other footage showed the demonstrators being told by officers to get off the bridge and pushing the crowd back.  According to officials, no injuries were reported, and about a half-dozen demonstrators were given appearance tickets for obstruction of vehicular traffic, reported the New York Post.

Protesters block traffic, clash with cops on Brooklyn Bridge.  Dramatic footage by The Post shows a crowd of protesters snarling traffic and squaring off with cops just a block from City Hall on the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge on Saturday night [4/24/2021].  Six cops were seen corralling one man with his hands behind his back at the Manhattan mouth of the bridge from around 10:30 p.m.  "He's breaking my finger," the grimacing man claims.  "What am I being arrested for?," another can be heard asking, as swarms of officers disperse several dozen protesters coming off the bridge onto Centre Street.  Dozens of protesters had crossed the bridge by walking along its Manhattan-bound roadway, blocking cars.  About a half dozen protesters were given appearance tickets for obstruction of vehicular traffic, according to police.

The Editor says...
Jaywalking tickets?  That's it?

Jesse Kelly:  BLM a timely 'front group' for Leftists to worm Communism into American society.  The First TV host Jesse Kelly said during his program Thursday evening [4/22/2021] that American "Marxists" have glommed on to the Black Lives Matter movement and will ride it to perpetual power after other leftist causes, including environmentalism and feminism, have failed to produce a similar result.  During the segment, Kelly noted that the BLM movement originated in the wake of the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman on Feb. 26, 2012.  Within a month of the shooting, then-President Barack Obama appeared to politicize it when he said during a press conference, "If I had a son, he'd look like Trayvon."  But, as Kelly noted, the BLM movement ebbed for the next few years before spiking in popularity and notoriety in 2018 after "the system" latched on to it as a means of obtaining power.

Murder rates soar dramatically in cities after BLM protests with up to 6,000 extra deaths nationwide.  A researcher has found that cities that had Black Lives Matter protests saw a significant decrease in police homicides, but a huge overall increase in murders.  Travis Campbell, an economics PhD candidate at the University of Massachusetts, published his findings in a recent pre-print study examining the impact of BLM protests on police use-of-force incidents.  His analysis, which is still undergoing peer-review, found that cities with BLM protests had 15 to 20 percent fewer police homicides than expected if the protests had not taken place, equating to 300 fewer police killings nationwide over five years.

Blacks At Floyd Memorial Want To Burn Down City No Matter What, One Hints Towards Killing Whites.  Radical black BLM supporters in attendance at A George Floyd's memorial in Minneapolis were asked about their thoughts on police, civil war and how they felt whites should be treated.  What follows is a collection of shockingly honest words from people who are actively looking to tear the country apart for no reason other than racism against white people, which despite what CNN would have you believe isn't really that big of an issue anymore as many races work happily together every day around the nation.  "Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?" one of the women asked.  "I say burn the city down, y'know?  So they can see that we're here," another woman asserted.  One person said that Derek Chauvin should not have received a trial at all.

'We Don't Want You Here!' BLM Protesters Harass NYC Diners After Chauvin's Guilty Verdicts.  BLM protesters harassed diners in New York City during a march that started after former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was found guilty on Tuesday of second-degree unintentional murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter in the death of George Floyd.  The march began in Brooklyn with protesters chanting, "Whose streets?  Our streets!"  [Video clip]

BLM Activists Suggest We Should 'Start Killing' All White People.  A shocking interview from the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis reveals how many Black Americans think about White people in the US.  During the collection of interviews, journalist and filmmaker Ami Horowitz asked several people who were attending the memorial about their thoughts on burning the city down and using violence against white people.  The responses may be shocking but not surprising to those who have been paying attention.  "Burn the whole city down, what does it matter?" one of the women asked.  "I say burn the city down, y'know?  So they can see that we're here," another woman said.  One of the women went on to say that Derek Chauvin should not have received a trial at all, and should have just been sent right to jail for life.

The Editor says...
Yes, there was one party involved in this mess who should have been sent to jail for life, and it wasn't Derek Chauvin.

BLM Activist Says She Supports Mass Looting Because It's Payback For 200 Years Of What White People Have Done.  Activist Kim Brown, who hosts "Burn It Down with Kim Brown" on YouTube, says she fully supports the looting of Dollar Tree, and of Advance Auto Parts (which was burned down).  Why?  Because blacks could loot every store in America for 200 years and still not have their debt repaid.  Someone should tell her stores aren't going to reopen if they're continually looted.  "I support the looting of Dollar tree.  I support the looting of Advanced auto parts.  I support all that [...]... Because blk people could loot every store in this [...] country for 200 years and it would not even come close to what America owes us."  [Video clip]

The Editor says...
Excuse me for injecting logic into this discussion, but if you burn down somebody's store, how does that repay a debt?

Breonna Taylor's Mother: BLM Is A 'Fraud'.  Breonna Taylor's mother doesn't have a very high opinion of the Louisville branch of Black Lives Matter.  Quite the opposite, actually.  Taylor, a 26-year old black woman, was fatally shot in her Louisville apartment on March 13, 2020, when police exchanged gunfire with Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, during a forced-entry investigation into drug dealing operations.  Soon thereafter, BLM Louisville indicated it would assist Taylor's family in trying to get through the tragedy.  Per Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer, that never happened.  "I have never personally dealt with BLM Louisville and personally have found them to be fraud," Palmer wrote in a lengthy Facebook post deriding the organization.

The families left behind by Black Lives Matter.  Black Lives Matter ignores victims of systemic racism and enriches a select few, so say the families of those killed by the police and many of the group's own activists.  Founded in 2013 following the acquittal of George Zimmerman for his role in Trayvon Martin's death, the group has held protests around the country against perceived systemic racism against minorities.  Black Lives Matter has sparked global conversations on race and policing and is credited with a number of criminal justice reform efforts.  But on Thursday [4/15/2021], the mother of Breonna Taylor, a black woman killed by police during a raid in March 2020, charged that the movement in her city of Louisville, Kentucky, is nothing more than a scam.

BLM protesters rally for "victim," leave after learning he was white.  Black Lives Matter protesters in Minnesota dropped to a knee and set off to march over a fatal police shooting — only to return when they learned it was a white carjacker who had fired at police, according to reports.  Dozens of people protesting outside Gov. Tim Walz's mansion in St. Paul on Sunday were filmed by Fox 9 reporter Mitti Hicks as they knelt for a moment of silence over initial rumors about Sunday's 3 p.m. fatal shooting.  "Protestors kneel after hearing there was an officer-involved shooting in Burnsville moments ago," Hicks tweeted of the wild, caught-on-camera armed carjacking in the suburbs. [...] The BLM marchers, riled by the local police-involved deaths of George Floyd and Daunte Wright, soon appeared to get word that the latest shooting was not one fit for protest.

Peaceful Protesters?  BLM Incites Crowd To 'Get Blood On Their Hands'.  With the scent of mayhem over the George Floyd murder trial verdict already in the air, Black Lives Matter is preparing to take to the streets for another round of rioting, looting, and mayhem that could result in bloodshed.  On Friday [4/16/2021], BLM activists and their Antifa allies took to the streets to denounce the police and to warm up for the violence that will be unleashed if the jury delivers anything less than a second-degree murder verdict against ex-cop Derek Chauvin.  In one of the rallies that were held across the country, a young activist speaking at Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington D.C. made it clear that there will be hell to pay for white America and issued a call for what sounded like a violent revolution.

Facebook Bigwig Donated Millions to Black Lives Matter.  Then The Company Censored Criticism of BLM's Controversial Founder.  Facebook cofounder Dustin Moskovitz has poured over $5 million into a network of nonprofits run by Black Lives Matter leader Patrisse Cullors, according to financial disclosure records, raising questions about whether this relationship played a role in the company's decision to censor unflattering news articles about the activist last week.  The social media giant blocked its users from posting links to a New York Post story that revealed Cullors, a self-described Marxist, spent $3.2 million on high-end real estate as her Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation raked in millions in donations.  Facebook said the reporting violated its "privacy and personal information policy."  The Post argued that the decision was "so arbitrary as to be laughable" and noted that the media routinely report on real estate purchases by other celebrities and political figures without facing social media censorship.

Paper Uses 'Breached' Data To Dox Police Who Donated To Innocent Colleague Targeted By BLM; Twitter Promotes.  British news outlet The Guardian published an article Friday [4/16/2021], based on information from a group that specializes in trafficking hacked materials, listing the names of low-level police employees who anonymously donated to funds supporting the due process rights of colleagues who have garnered the ire of Black Lives Matter.  Twitter then put it atop its "trending" section, which is manually curated by the site — after it silenced all references to an election-eve New York Post story that was damaging to the Joe Biden campaign, claiming it violated a policy that Twitter will not promote hacked materials.  There is no evidence the Hunter Biden laptop featured in the story was hacked.

Why is Twitter suppressing criticism of Black Lives Matter?  A journalist has been locked out of his Twitter account for criticising Black Lives Matter.  Jason Whitlock shared a link to the story that Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of BLM's co-founders, had purchased a $1.4 million compound in Topanga, LA.  This is reportedly only the latest in a string of high-end buys by Khan-Cullors.  Whitlock, a black journalist, tweeted that black people make up just 1.4 percent of the town's population, adding mockingly that 'She's with her people!'.  Twitter then deleted the tweet and locked his account on the spurious charge that he had broken privacy rules.  A screenshot shared by another journalist shows that Twitter told Whitlock, 'you may not publish or post other people's private information without their express authorisation or permission'.  In other words, you are not allowed to do journalism.

Can't Stand Cant.  [Scroll down]  BLM Global Network received $90 million last year.  Only $500 of that went to the family of Michael Brown, whose death in Ferguson, Missoouri set off a series of BLM demonstrations and riots.  In fact, the head of BLM Greater New York, not affiliated with the Global Network, has asked for "an independent investigation" of [Patrisse] Cullors' outfit, asking "If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes."

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Cashes in on 'Systemic Racism'.  Patrisse Cullors is a co-founder of Black Lives Matter.  About her background, she said in 2015: "The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame.  Myself and Alicia [Garza, BLM co-founder,] in particular are trained organizers."  Cullors also said:  "We are trained Marxists.  We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.  And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk."  Cullors, the self-described "trained Marxist," appears to be doing quite well for herself.  Last year, she signed a major Hollywood production deal.  Variety

Minnesota BLM Activist Arrested on Sex Offender Warrant.  Minnesota media darling and BLM activist Chaz Neal was arrested on April 9 for a warrant stemming from a conviction in an unlawful sex with a minor case.  The warrant was issued by a Fillmore County Judge for failing to register as a sex offender.  Chaz Neal has been an outspoken BLM activist who has placed himself front and center in the fight 'social justice.' [...] Neal runs a radical left-wing Facebook page called the "Chaz Neal Human Rights Commision [sic]."  Earlier this month, Neal told the Guardian:  "Seeing that video [George Floyd] last year changed my life.  I wanted to be a part of the solution instead of the problem."  The Guardian reports Neal has been protesting at the courthouse since the first official day of the trial, which began with jury selection in early March.

BLM Sent Legal Threats To NY Activist Who Called For Audit Of Cofounder's $3.2 Million Home-Buying Spree.  The national Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization sent legal threats to a prominent New York BLM activist for using the Black Lives Matter name, according to both parties.  BLM Global Network Foundation, cofounded by Patrisse Cullors, sent cease-and-desist letters to BLM Greater New York leader Hank Newsome claiming Newsome's group is illegally uses the Black Lives Matter name, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation (DCNF). Newsome earlier this week called for an independent investigation into Cullors' finances after she reportedly spent millions on new properties.  BLM Greater New York is unaffiliated with the national BLM group and is illegally operating under the BLM name, the foundation argued in its letters to Newsome.

Facebook censors story on BLM co-founder's multi-million dollar LA property empire.  Facebook has stopped users from sharing articles by about a BLM founder Patrisse Cullors' multi-million dollar property empire while users were allowed to share it from other outlets.  Users that wanted to share links to the were met with a message that said it 'couldn't be shared.'  'This content was removed for violating our privacy and personal information policy,' a Facebook spokesperson told  However, other outlets, such as Black Enterprise, a media company that covers black-owned businesses, was allowed to be shared by Facebook users.  It's not the first time Facebook has censored content from conservative voices.

Bodycam Video Of A Chicago PD Officer Fatally Shooting The 13-year-old Adam Toledo Was Just Released — BLM Starts Riots Before The Video Was Released.  Video showing Chicago police fatally shooting 13-year-old Adam Toledo was released today, along with other materials related to the investigation.  Chicago's Civilian Office of Police Accountability announced on Wednesday that the video would be released today, two days after Adam's family was shown footage of the shooting.  The agency said after the family watched the videos Tuesday night that based on the family's request, it would "not immediately release" the footage or other materials like 911 calls and witness statements to the public.  Prosecutors had described the events in the video over the weekend as a judge set bond at $150,000 for the 21-year-old man who was with the teen at the time of the fatal shooting.

Report: Black Lives Matter co-founder made $20K a month as jail reform group chairwoman.  It turns out the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation made upwards of $20,000 a month while she served as the chairwoman of a Los Angeles based jail reform group back in 2019, according to campaign finance records.  This happens to be the same individual that has come under a bit of scrutiny for the recent acquisition of a $1.4 million home purchased in Los Angeles back in March.  Pitrisse Cullors has managed to acquire quite the large sum of money through her efforts that have essentially been enabled via co-founding the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.  Records show that Cullors managed to rake in upwards of $20,000 a month while serving as the chairwoman of the group known as Reform LA Jails back in 2019.  This sum of money was acquired through Cullors' consulting firm, known as Janaya and Patrisse Consulting.

Black Lives Matter activist Bree Newsome defends rioting and looting as 'a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence'.  A prominent activist who supports the Black Lives Matter movement has appeared to support violent protests, arguing that rioting and looting are 'a legitimate, politically-informed response to state violence'.  Bree Newsome, 35, made the passionate remarks in a series of tweets this week, arguing that police are not limited to non-violence, and that a violent response to injustice can be appropriate and justified.  Newsome, a filmmaker and activist on racial justice issues, famously scaled a flagpole at the South Carolina State House to tear down the Confederate battle flag in 2015.  Weeks later, lawmakers ordered the divisive symbol's removal from the grounds.

Progressive BLM activist accused in 'violent' anti-Asian hate crimes.  One day after eight women were murdered in Atlanta, six of whom were Asian American, Christopher Hamner posted on Facebook that we've "all had bad days but it never justifies hate crimes."  But the day before, Hamner allegedly committed a hate crime against an Asian American woman in Seattle.  It wasn't his only alleged victim.  On Facebook, Hamner appears to be a model Black Lives Matter activist and progressive.  He is an enthusiastic supporter of President Joe Biden and loathes former President Donald Trump.  He repeatedly says he abhors hate.  But his online virtue signaling does not match with the hate crime charge he now faces in Seattle.

Black Lives Matter activist from Seattle charged with anti-Asian hate crime.  A Black Lives Matter activist from Seattle has been arrested — for an alleged anti-Asian hate crime, according to reports.  Christopher Hamner, 51, who is black, was charged with allegedly attacking three Asian-American women in two separate incidents last month, according to KIRO 7.  In the first incident on March 16, Hamner allegedly shouted "Asian b[...]!" at a Chinese-American mom, who was driving with her two children, before punching his fists together in a menacing motion and demanding that she get out of the car, according to the local news outlet.  The mother, Pamela Cole, says she snapped photos of Hamner and he then drove off.

While spending millions on luxury homes, BLM co-founder told college students that capitalism is 'more tragic' than COVID-19.  Black Lives Matter co-founder and self-described Marxist Patrisse Cullors — who has accumulated over $3 million in luxury real estate in recent years — told college students just last summer that "capitalism" is "more tragic" than COVID-19.  In March, Cullors purchased a $1.4 million home in Topanga Canyon, California — a town near Malibu in which less than 2 percent of the population is African-American.  The property features "soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows," as well as a guesthouse.  According to the New York Post, Cullors also purchased a $415,000 home outside of Atlanta last year.  In 2016, she purchased a three-bedroom home in Inglewood for $510,000, and in 2018, she acquired a four-bedroom home in South Los Angeles for $590,000.  The values of the latter two properties have appreciated to $800,000 and $720,000, respectively.  She has also reportedly eyed homes in Nassau priced between $5 million and $20 million.

Black Lives Manors
BLM says stories about co-founder's new multi-million dollar home are fueled by 'white supremacy'.  Black Lives Matter put out a statement on Tuesday [4/13/2021] in reaction to the revelations that co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors purchased a multi-million dollar home, and questions as to whether BLM was the source of the funding that enabled that real estate buy.  The statement claims that the source of the revelations about the home buy, which were first reported in Dirt, are from conservatives who seek to do Khan-Cullors and her mission harm.  Many conservatives, including Candace Owens and Jason Whitlock, were simply horrified that an avowed Marxist would be indulging in capitalistic luxuries.  The statement reads that:  "Patrisse Cullors is the Executive Director of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF).  She serves in this role in a volunteer capacity and does not receive a salary or benefits.  Patrisse has received a total of $120,000 since the organization's inception in 2013, for duties such as serving as spokesperson and engaging in political education work.  Patrisse did not receive any compensation after 2019.["]

The Editor says...
Black Lives Matter wants you to know that the organization's co-founder "does not receive a salary or benefits."  Okay, then just out of curiosity, where did she get the money to buy a $1.4 million house?  Keep reading...

Marxist BLM leader reportedly raked in big bucks from jail reform initiative.  Patrisse Khan-Cullors, the self-described Marxist leader of Black Lives Matter, raked in upwards of $20,000 a month as the chairwoman of a jail reform initiative, according to reports on Wednesday [4/14/2021].  Reform LA Jails paid Cullors' consulting firm, Janaya and Patrisse Consulting, a total of $191,000 in 2019, according to campaign finance data cited by Fox News and The Daily Caller.  Cullors, who is listed as "principal officer" and "business owner" on the payments, started the firm with her spouse and BLM co-founder Janaya Khan.  The reports came as the 37-year-old activist faced criticism over a real estate spending spree — in which she snagged four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone.

BLM Co-Founder Breaks Silence on Criticism About Real Estate Binge.  I've been writing a lot about Patrisse Khan-Cullors, the self-described trained Marxist leader of Black Lives Matter over the past week, after the news came out that she'd just dropped a bundle on a mini-compound in Topanga Canyon, California.  She secured the property, which has two houses on it, for $1.4 million through a corporate entity which she controls.  It's also in an area that is only about 1.4 percent black.  Then the information also came out that she had three other high-end homes — two in Los Angeles and one in Georgia with an indoor swimming pool, an airplane hangar, and access to a landing strip.  The homes added up to $3.2 million according to the report.  She allegedly was also was looking into securing a home in the Bahamas at a resort where the homes ranged in price from $5 million to $20 million.  Not exactly living up to her Marxist creed.  Or perhaps we should say, she really is, since most Marxist leaders preach a lot but then aggregate all the trappings of wealth to themselves.

If I did this, it would be called "making a terroristic threat."
BLM Thugs Take Over Dallas Restaurant, Threaten To 'Burn Sh!t Down.  What's your definition of terrorism?  As Black Lives Matter agitators take over this Dallas eatery, their chants of "Who burn [...] down?  We burn [...] down" sure sounds like a threat of terrorism.  [Video clip]

2021 BLM Riots, Day 2: Dollar Tree Looted for Daunte, Police Battle with Rioters in Minnesota.  [Numerous tweets with video clips.]

In Chauvin Trial, BLM Mob Justice Comes Full Circle.  In the ongoing Minneapolis trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin, BLM and its allies have shown no more interest in justice than did Alice's Queen of Hearts.  "Sentence first — verdict afterwards," said the Queen, and when Alice protested the Queen shouted, "Off with her head."  Fearing the loss of their heads, perhaps literally, too many powerful people stand by mutely as the mob begins to circle the Minneapolis Court House.  Although the Chauvin trial gives all the appearance of fairness, it is likely to turn out to be anything but.  As Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes said of the Atlanta jury that convicted the Jewish Leo Frank of murder in 1913, "Due process does not become due process by securing the assent of a terrified jury."  In Minneapolis, the jury has at least as much to fear as Frank's jury did in Atlanta.  From recent experience, the jurors can readily anticipate the consequences for the city and the nation should they vote to acquit.  If one or more among them holds out to prevent fellow jurors from handing down an unjust sentence, they have good reason to fear for themselves and their families as well.  The Left is keen on "doxxing."

What it will look like for us if history repeats itself.  With but minor changes adapting it to the situation, the Derek Chauvin trial is reprising the George Zimmerman  dramatic production  trial.  Chauvin plugs in as Zimmerman, while George Floyd takes Trayvon Martin's place.  We're wearily familiar with the script; there will be riots no matter what's decided, with the same people rioting.  The lamestream media will pronounce Chauvin guilty with minimal regard for evidence, law, or common sense.  In the court of public opinion, Chauvin will ultimately be judged not on what he actually did, but on the narrative that somebody white has to pay for George Floyd's death.  Meanwhile, Minneapolis police shot and killed another black lawbreaker Sunday, bringing BLM rioters into the streets again.  These had been waiting for a spark to ignite another conflagration.  They probably were anticipating the decision in the Chauvin case, but pretty much any old spark would have served the purpose.

ANTIFA And BLM Crashes White Lives Matter Event In Huntington Beach, Massive Clashes Ensue.  Huntington Beach police Sunday declared an unlawful assembly after scuffles broke out between "White Lives Matter" protesters and Black Lives Matter counter-demonstrators near the pier.  Video shows at least two men carrying Trump 2020 flags and one going head-to-head with the counter-protesters who then surrounded him and ripped his flag down.  A small scuffle breaks out before police intervened and officers confiscated the man's flag and took him into custody.  [Video clip]

Head of NYC BLM chapter calls for probe into organization's co-founder.  The head of New York City's Black Lives Matter chapter is calling for an independent investigation into the organization's finances after it was revealed a co-founder snapped up a $1.4 million home in a ritzy Los Angeles neighborhood.  Patrisse Cullors, 37, who is a co-founder of BLM and self-professed 'trained Marxist', recently purchased a plush property in Topanga Canyon complete with a separate guest house and an expansive back yard.  In Topanga Canyon, 88 percent of residents are white and just 1.8 percent are black, according to the census.

Report: Marxist Black Lives Matter Co-founder Bought Four Homes since 2016.  Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement and a "trained Marxist," is reported to have bought four homes over the past several years, as her activist profile grew and protests raged around the country.  Last week, real estate website reported that the "37-year-old social justice visionary" Khan-Cullors had bought a $1.4 million compound in Topanga, a remote Los Angeles neighborhood nestled deep in the Santa Monica mountains. [...] However, it turns out that Khan-Cullors also owns a house in the predominantly black neighborhood of Inglewood — among several other homes.  The New York Post reported Saturday [4/10/2021] that she bought a $510,000 home there in 2016, which is worth about $800,000 today.  She also bought a $590,000 home in South Los Angeles that is worth $720,000 today, and bought a ranch in rural Georgia for $415,000 last year, "featuring a private airplane hangar with a studio apartment above it."

Black Lives Matter activists want investigation of leader after real-estate binge.  If there's one thing that unites activists the political left and the political right, it's ... grift.  From ultra-nationalists to Marxists, eventually someone figures out how to use organizing to get rich.  This time around it's the turn of Black Lives Matter activists, who are shocked, shocked to find their founder and leader Patrisse Khan-Cullors buying up high-end real estate with seven-figure price tags. [...] If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you probably shouldn't keep snapping up personal property in the form of real estate.  (One could ask Bernie Sanders about that, too.)  Socialists oppose personal property, especially in the form of real estate, and especially when the wealthy collect more of it than they can use at any one time.  Investments in real estate are usually the hallmark of capitalists, and occasionally grifters as well.

Black Lives Matter Founder Takes Part in Bizarre Occult Ritual.  A bizarre video shows a prominent Black Lives Matter leader taking part in an occult ritual in which she dresses as a winged demon and prays for her incarcerated brother.  In the unsettling video from this past June, Patrisse Cullors, founder of the BLM Los Angeles chapter, is decked out in a tight gold outfit with large wings as she grabs her brother's clothes from a nearby tree and throws them over a giant nest of pipes.  [Video clip]

After Terrorizing Churches, BLM Witchcraft Exposed.  There is now proof that there are very dark forces behind Black Lives Matter, and it's not just the blatant Marxism of its founders and leaders.  The darkness literally includes summoning dead spirits and allowing them to work through BLM leaders.  Sound crazy?  BLM bosses admit it.  Clues about the true nature of BLM have been available for quite some time.  Last month, Black Lives Matter activists terrorized church attendees in Troy, New York, while chanting "hail Satan."  They even shrieked at black families and young mothers trying to get in the building.  Just this week in Kenosha, Wisconsin, a church with a "Black Lives Matter" sign on it was torched by BLM activists.  In a video that went viral this week, a mob of white BLM activists shout at a couple at a D.C. restaurant for refusing to raise their fists, with one activist asking the confused victims, "Are you a Christian?"  Now, newly released audio recordings reveal the occult practices, ancestor worship, African paganism, and literal witchcraft of at least one of the national group's co-founders, as well as the founder of BLM's Los Angeles chapter.  Apparently the entire George Soros-funded leadership of BLM is involved in these practices as well.

The whitewashing of Black Lives Matter.  The Deep State has done its best to portray Black Lives Matter as a moderate movement. [...] A Princeton University study links BLM to 91% of riots during the summer of 2020.  Of course, this study will be disputed, but the fact that BLM is a violent movement cannot be denied.  They will never be satisfied.  New York Black Lives Matter President Hawk Newsome:  "if this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.  Prominent Black Lives Matter activist Maya Echols predicted the results of the Derek Chauvin trial:  "If George Floyd's murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose.  Don't be surprised when buildings are on fire.  Just saying."  As Vice-President Harris has stated, "They're not going to stop ... they're not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not."

Antifa-BLM Violently Attack Reporter, Put Him in Chokehold, Bloody His Face During Anti-Eviction March in Detroit.  Antifa-BLM thugs violently assaulted an independent reporter on Saturday who was covering an anti-eviction march through Greektown in Detroit, Michigan.  Marchers chanted, "Black homes are under attack, tell me what do we do, rise up fight back!"

West St. Paul asks homeowner to paint over Black Lives Matter mural.  Ryan Weyandt, a West St. Paul resident and founder of LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance, commissioned a vibrant "Black Lives Matter" mural for his wooden fence last summer.  Now, after it became something of a local landmark, the city of West St. Paul says it must be removed because it violates code.  The mural at the corner of Butler and Smith avenues also bears the beaming face of 2020 mayoral candidate Kimetha "Kae Jae" Johnson.  Johnson is staff director of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers and founder of Residents of Color Collective, an organization that delivers food to renters in need.  According to the West St. Paul Reader, she was the first Black person to run for municipal office in the history of the city, where three-fourths of residents are white.

Twitter does not want you to know that the co-founder of BLM just bought a $1.4 million house in an exclusive lily-white neighborhood.  Social media censorship is escalating and ever more blatant.  Unfettered knowledge is dangerous to the phony narratives that progressives wish to brainwash the public into accepting, and with social media, the blockade imposed by mainstream media potentially can be breached by people posting otherwise obscure media sources to their social media accounts.  The latest prominent victim is Jason Whitlock, originally a sportswriter but now a social critic who brings insightful commentary on many issues, including race.  (For the record, Whitlock is Black, a fact that seems to make a difference to most people on the left.)  Yesterday [4/9/2021], Jason Whitlock posted a link to a story about Patrice Cullors and her apparent spouse Janaya Khan (who self-identifies as "black, queer, and gender-nonconforming") buying a $1.4-million compound in the Topanga Canyon area of Greater Los Angeles. [...] When Jason Whitlock noted the purchase on his widely followed Twitter account, Jack Dorsey's minions decided this was too much information.

BLM's Lady of the Canyon.  The co-founder of Black Lives Matter has found a personal solution for the big black crime wave that she has done so much to instigate. [...] Topanga is not terribly welcoming to outsiders.  Back before GPS, the locals would frequently tear down the road sign pointing to the trailhead of the Topanga Canyon State Park.  But it's perhaps the safest non-gated community in Los Angeles County for staying far, far away from black crime.  Topanga was only 1.4% black in the 2010 Census and 84.5% non-Hispanic white, which is very white for L.A. County.  Of course, Black Lives Matter has gotten thousands of incremental blacks murdered by other blacks, but Ms. Khan-Cullors' black life matters enough to stay secluded from other blacks.

Marxist BLM Co-Founder Buys 1.4M Mansion In Predominantly White Neighborhood.  The Black Lives Matter movement is not only anti-police, anti-white, anti-capitalist but also proudly neo-Marxist.  Patrisse Cullors is an American artist and activist.  Cullors is an advocate for prison abolition in Los Angeles and a co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement.  She also identifies as a queer activist.  That's what the mainstream media and the Wikipedia page will tell you but what was a huge secret since the BLM movement was founded now is out.

Well Known BLM Activist Warns America That Cities Will Burn If Officer Chauvin Is Not Convicted For The Murder Of George Floyd.  Well-known BLM activist, Maya Echols, warned white America that if former Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin was not convicted of murder for the death of George Floyd, there will be the harshest of consequences.  "If George Floyd's murderer is not sentenced, just know that all hell is gonna break loose," Echols said in a since-deleted TikTok video, which had been already saved and circulated by other social media users before she could take it down.  "Don't be surprised when building are on fire.  Just sayin'." Echols added.  Signed by IMG Worldwide model and with nearly half a million followers on TikTok later, this isn't the first time Echols has posted about the movement, or how she likes to rile up conservative shoppers at the local grocery store.  [Video clip]

An obvious attempt to interfere with the judicial system, and/or incite a riot:
Black Lives Matter Activist Warns "All Hell Will Break Loose" If Officer Chauvin Is Not Convicted in George Floyd Death.  Black Lives Matter activist Maya Echols, who is also a signed model with IMG Worldwide, warned in a recent Tik-Tok video that "cities will burn" if Police Officer Derek Chauvin is not convicted in the death of drug addict and thief George Floyd. [...] The autopsy report found that George Floyd had meth, fentanyl, cannabinoids and morphine in his system when he die.  Floyd was also COVID positive.

Black Lives Matter activists intimidate an Asian nail salon in Milwaukee.  Some Black Panther members intimated a Chinese owned nail salon in Milwakee a couple of months ago but the video is now getting traction on social media in light of all the anti-Asian hate perpatuated by blacks across the country.  [Video clip]

Rochester Schools Hire BLM Leader To Indoctrinate Their Students.  If you needed more proof that conservatives need to start taking over school boards in their cities, this story should suffice.  A public school district close to Rochester, New York will be rolling out a brand spanking new "anti-racist" curriculum that will involve a local Black Lives Matter leader who garnered national attention last year after she appeared to support the actions of rioters burning buildings.

Chauvin Trial:  Star Prosecution Witness In Floyd Case Apparently Wore Black Lives Matter T-Shirt On Stand.  Donald Williams, 33, the MMA practitioner who was present at the fatal arrest and called as an expert witness, faced questions over his training and conduct on the day, which was captured on a widely-seen video.  Williams's testimony on the first day of Chauvin's trial painted a picture of the former police officer showing indifference to Floyd's suffering, a key component of the charge of third-degree murder known as "depraved mind" or a "depraved-heart murder".  Michael Padden, a Minneapolis-based lawyer with 34 years' experience trying cases, often involving the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD), described Williams as a "[g]ood, solid witness who may be the key ... on the issue of depraved mind for third-degree murder". [...] As Williams testified, an outline of portions of the Black Lives Matter organization's logo could be seen showing through his over shirt.

BLM Protesters In Austin Assault A Man On A Motorcycle After Blocking Traffic For 20 Minutes.  A group of BLM protesters in Austin Texas blocked traffic for nearly 20 minutes while forcing those on the road to listen to their chants and anti-police rants.  One man on a motorcycle decided to confront the group and was assaulted and his motorcycle disabled.  The group surrounded him as he pushed his bike along the side of the road, throwing bottles and pushing him along the way.  [Video clip]

Seattle social-justice activist charged over anti-Asian hate attacks.  A Black Lives Matter activist and fervent Democrat Party supporter is accused of committing anti-Asian hate crimes in Seattle.  King County prosecutors charged 51-year-old Christopher Allen Hamner, of SeaTac, Wash., with a felony hate crime for targeting multiple Asian victims on two separate occasions in March.  Hamner, who is mixed-race, is accused of threatening women and children of Asian background as young as five years old with racial slurs.  On March 16, Hamner allegedly harassed a woman while she was in her car with two children, ages five and 10.

US Navy tells staff on 'extremism' training course they can advocate for BLM at work but they are NOT allowed to discuss 'politically partisan issues'.  The US Navy's training on 'extremism' says staff can advocate for Black Lives Matter (BLM) while at work but service members are not allowed to discuss 'politically partisan issues', training slides reveal.  The Navy described BLM as a 'public policy issue' in the slides and advocating for the organisation was allowed as long as the behavior is lawful.  But they stated that advocacy would be prohibited if it was 'politically partisan in nature'.

Atlantic City to redo Black Lives Matter road paint because of driver confusion.  Atlantic City says it will redo a Black Lives Matter tribute on a street because the original painting of those words across the entire road confused motorists who didn't know where to drive on it.  Instead, the words "Black Lives Matter" will be painted onto the repaved road in a manner that does not obscure lane divider markings, Mayor Marty Small said Thursday [3/25/2021].

BLM Forces Store To Shut Down, Trapping Shoppers Inside In Rochester NY.  BLM agitators forced a Wegmans to shut down in Rochester NY earlier today [3/23/2021], trapping shoppers inside.  "Wegmans is a system that upholds white supremacy," said Ashley Gantt, a leader of the group Free the People Rochester, which organized Tuesday's protest.  She and others pointed to its use of uniformed Rochester police as security.  The company announced around 12:15 p.m. that all customers left the store and that the store at 1750 East Ave. will remain closed until 6 a.m.  Wednesday.  The group blocked entrances to Wegmans' parking lot with their own vehicles, set up a tent in front of the store and wrote messages on the ground in chalk.  [Video clip]

Madison Man Sentenced to 2 Years of Probation for Extorting Businesses.  Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Devonere Johnson, 29, Madison, Wisconsin was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge William Conley to two years of probation for extortion.  Johnson pleaded guilty to this charge on November 4, 2020.  On June 22, 2020, during a period of protests and civil unrest in downtown Madison, Johnson extorted two restaurants.  At one restaurant, Johnson threatened to break the windows unless the owner sent him money through Venmo.  At the other, Johnson and two others threatened to have 600 people show up and burn it down unless they were given free food.

BLM Organizer Who Extorted Businesses Gets Probation.  When Black Lives Matter thugs were terrorizing cities, the Trump administration stepped in to nail the thugs that local Democrats wouldn't touch.

Pompeo: When China Sees Dems 'Deeply Tied' to BLM 'They Sense That America May Well Be in Decline'.  On Friday's [3/19/2021] broadcast of the Fox News Channel's "Hannity," former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo reacted to the exchange between American and Chinese officials earlier in the week and said that Chinese officials "mentioned Black Lives Matter as part of the reason they think American democracy is in decline, those are running buddies of Marxist-Leninists all around the world.  And so, when they see a Democrat Party that is so deeply tied to the Black Lives Matter movement, I think they sense that America may well be in decline."  [Video clip]

China uses Black Lives Matter to embarrass Biden Administration.  The Biden administration was thoroughly embarrassed and unprepared in their first diplomatic meeting with the Chinese delegation yesterday [3/18/2021].  On U.S. soil, the Chinese mocked U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan.  "Many people within the United States actually have little confidence in the democracy of the United States," top Chinese diplomat Yang Jiechi told the Biden administration, citing the Black Lives Matter movement.  The Chinese brazenly violated protocol for their 2-minute openings, each extending their comments beyond the given time.  Mr. Yang spoke for 16 minutes.

Sen. Johnson defends saying he did not fear MAGA Capitol mob but would have been 'concerned' if BLM or ANTIFA had stormed the building.  Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin denied on Monday [3/15/2021] that he made racist comments last week when he said he wasn't concerned about pro-Donald Trump insurrectionists at the U.S. Capitol in January — but would have been worried if they were Black Lives Matters protesters.  The comments drew a firestorm of criticism from Democrats and others who said Johnson was making racist statements.  But Johnson on Monday told Fox News that his remarks had been 'blown out of proportion' and denied there was racism involved.

Watch As This Live Stream Is Threatened And Intimidated By A Racist, BLM Protester.  So you thought once Joe Biden is inserted as the defacto-President, all the lunatic leftists would go back into hiding?  Well, think again.  Check out this live streamer who had the unfortunate displeasure of meeting face to face with the angriest, most shrill, black racist at this BLM protest.  This is a tactic most commonly used with ANTIFA since they don't want any video proof of their crimes.  [Video clip]

BLM Racially Taunt and Scare Little Kids and Their Parents in Louisville, It Doesn't End Well for Them.  BLM were trying to lead a caravan protest around the city of Louisville, Kentucky on Saturday [3/6/2021].  But they ended up stopping in front of the convention center and verbally attacking little kids and their parents who were trying to go in and out of a cheerleading competition.  The BLM was lined up all in front of the center and the families had to go through them in order to get into the building.  [Video clip]

The New York Times doesn't understand what a conspiracy theory is.  Even as Biden blatantly violates American law and sovereignty by erasing our southern border, remember that the Hispanic culture meshes with conservative values.  Hispanics are pro-life, pro-marriage, and pro-gun; believe there are two sexes; and, until leftist activists get hold of them, have a solid worth ethic.  Unsurprisingly, then, Hispanic men are drawn to conservativism.  To the New York Times, this is as baffling as believing in the "conspiracy theory" of violent Black Lives Matter protests. [...] In September, Fox News reported that "[t]he damage from riots and looting across the U.S. following the death of George Floyd is estimated to be the costliest in insurance history — between $1 billion and $2 billion."  Considering that Black Lives Matter was the leading edge of the protests, riots, and looting last year, that sounds like real violence happened, not just a "conspiracy theory."

Black Lives Matter pressured to hand over millions of dollars.  With nearly $100 million raised last year alone, some left-wing activists are asking the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation to give money back to individuals who say they made the movement possible.  In a Tuesday [3/2/2021] press release, Michael Brown Sr, the father of the 18-year-old shot and killed by a Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in 2014, asked Black Lives Matter, "Where is all that money going?"  "Who are they giving [the money] to, and what are they doing with it?" Brown asked.  "Why hasn't my family's foundation received any assistance from the movement?  How could you leave the families who are helping the community without any funding?"

USA Today:  Support for BLM has fallen and support for police has risen.  USA Today published the results of a new poll on the public's support for Black Lives Matter and for police.  The poll found that support for BLM is still down from the highs it briefly saw last summer.  Meanwhile trust in local police is up substantially.  But there's a hitch, and you can probably guess what it is.  Black and white Americans view these issues very differently.  In fact, the two are almost a mirror image at this point.

Michael Brown's father demands $20M from Black Lives Matter, other Ferguson activists request "funding".  Who had this grift on their 2021 bingo card?  The father of Michael Brown is seeking $20M from Black Lives Matter, along with other activists in Ferguson, Missouri.  The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation released an impact report to the Associated Press last week which shows a whopping $90M raised last year.  Brown would like his piece of the pie now.  The deaths of Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2012 and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri in 2014 were catalysts for the creation of Black Lives Matter.  The Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation is seen as a steward of the movement.  Tens of millions of dollars were raised in 2020, helped tremendously by the protests and marches by BLM, especially during the Summer of Love, after the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.  Celebrities and public figures fell all over themselves to jump on the bandwagon.  Now that the movement has found such success, the founders — all self-proclaimed Marxists — want to do more than organize and instigate protest marches that lead to riots.  They want to "uplift black joy and liberation."

Michael Brown's father and other Ferguson activists demand $20m from BLM after organization was revealed to have made $90m in donations last year.  Michael Brown Sr. is among the Black Lives Matter activists demanding $20 million from the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation after its finances were disclosed for the first time — revealing the group raked in $90 million in donations last year.  The nonprofit shared its financial snapshot with The Associated Press amid accusations from local chapters that they are not being given any of the money.  Brown, whose son Michael Brown Jr., was killed by police in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014 says he and his advocacy group have been short-changed by the larger BLM organization.

The Left's Campaign Against Self-Defense.  Last week, federal prosecutors offered an undisclosed plea deal to two lawyers who firebombed an NYPD van and drove around passing out Molotov cocktails to protesters at a violent May 2020 Black Lives Matter (BLM) protest in Brooklyn. [...] In the name of "social justice," politicians and the judiciary in many cities and states are bestowing moral rights on violent left-wing and anarchist groups.  District attorney Mike Schmidt, for instance, announced in August that he won't prosecute most of the 550 people arrested during the 75 days of mayhem in Portland last spring.  He said the leniency was an attempt to "create a forum" to express "collective grief, anger, and frustration" at the death of George Floyd and the history of abuses endured by people of color.  Worse, he said using the criminal justice system against them would "undermine public safety" for those "demanding to be heard." Schmidt, his Democrat cohort, and leftist sympathizers in journalism, law, and academia willfully ignore the fact that such misplaced clemency condones and encourages militant groups' violence, their disrespect for the law, and their anti-American agenda.

With Libraries like These, Who Needs to Burn Books?  On January 25, 2021, the American Library Association (ALA) Council reviewed the role of libraries in condemning white supremacy and fascism.  Lindsay Cronk, who helped develop a resolution to "condemn white supremacy and fascism as antithetical to library work," believes this work to be "urgent." [...] In effect, people will no longer have access to all books and materials, except for those that thoroughly support radical left-wing, communist agendas.  That librarians have committed to a known Marxist group such as BLM is most revealing and shocking.  In fact, "a co-founder of BLM's Toronto branch is a young woman named Yusra Khogali, who in late 2015 posted the following message on Facebook: 'Whiteness is not humxness. in fact, white skin is sub-humxn[.] ... White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual. white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.'"  Couple this with the rabid anti-cop sentiment of the BLM leaders, and this is the new face of your once friendly library.  You have to hand it to the leftists — they never stop trying to destroy the country.  They infiltrate sports, business, and now libraries.

$10.6B+ Was Given To Black Lives Matter Causes:  Where Did The Money Go?  Following the police killing of George Floyd on May 25, the message "Black Lives Matter" appeared on signs at protests across the world.  Streets were painted with the words and they were one of the top searches on Google for 2020. Major corporations adopted the slogan to show their support in the fight to end injustice and with all this exposure came mega donations to BLM, a grassroots group that popped up in 2013.  Public support for the Black Lives Matter movement was at an unheard-of 67 percent in June, according to Pew researchers.  "BLM-related causes" pulled in more than $10.6 billion in donations, according to The Economist.  Not much is known about how the money is being used.  The organization's founders, three Black women — Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi — have been accused on social media of not sharing "a single cent with black people...."  Others came to BLM's support, saying "They are donating to BLM city chapters and trying to start a bank."

Activists Outline Their Plan to Push Black Lives Matter in the Classroom.  Corporations, nonprofit institutions, the media, and countless individual Americans have expressed support of the Black Lives Matter movement, funneling millions of dollars into organizations that purport to carry out its cause. [...] It's deeply important that we know what the agenda truly is.  A new book, "Black Lives Matter at School," lays out how the entire system of K-12 education in America could be transformed to carry out the agenda of the Black Lives Matter movement.  "Black Lives Matter at School," a collection of essays, gives a framework for how the movement aims to shape public education in coming years.  The book received a fairly laudatory and sympathetic analysis in The Washington Post.  But much like President Joe Biden's references to radical critical race theory programs as simply "sensitivity training," the Post smooths over the radicalism of the work and makes it digestible to a larger audience.  A fair number of left-leaning Americans don't want to support Marxism and ethnic nationalism, but it's clear that is what "Black Lives Matter at School" and affiliated groups actually are selling.

Violent BLM protest in NYC leaves two NYPD cops injured, 11 arrested.  A Black Lives Matter march through Midtown Manhattan turned violent Friday night, with 11 protesters arrested.  The NYPD reported that two officers suffered minor injuries during the protest, which was attended by about 100 marchers; officials could not immediately say how the cops were hurt.  At least some of those arrested were accused of attacking Daily News photographer Sam Costanza at the intersection of Sixth Avenue and 54th Street in the mistaken belief that he was a cop, sources said.  The photog was surrounded and struck after one of the marchers recognized him from a BLM protest outside the NYPD's 6th Precinct house in Greenwich Village last year, according to sources.

Exposing BLM's Agenda-Driven K-12 Curriculum.  February is Black History Month, and the push to inject Black Lives Matter curriculum into America's K-12 schools is in high gear.  In the fight for racial justice, the slogan "black lives matter" is a reasonable mantra that focusses on equality; creating a fair and inclusive society is indeed a very worthy goal.  But "Black Lives Matter" the activist organization with a registered political action committee is a different matter entirely.  And it's Black Lives Matter the political organization that is pushing an agenda-driven curriculum into America's K-12 schools, an agenda that at times is not only racially polarizing, but one that calls for defunding police; disrupting the nuclear family; and replacing individualism and capitalism with an irresponsible brand of socialist globalism.

Black Lives Matter protesters tear down barricades and storm Rochester police station after cops pepper-sprayed a nine-year-old girl.  Black Lives Matter protesters overturned the barricades surrounding a Rochester, New York police station on Monday night as they demonstrated against the actions of police officers who pepper sprayed a nine-year-old girl while they arrested her.  The barricades came down as it was announced the officers involved in the incident on Friday, have been suspended.  On Monday evening [2/1/2021], the demonstrators chanted 'Black lives matter!' as they managed to tip over the metal barriers set up outside the precinct before making their way up to the inner parking lot fence.

BLM'S Brand of Peace Deserves No Prize.  The Black Lives Matter movement was recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Petter Eide, a parliament member and member of Norway's Socialist Left Party.  Mr. Eide was obviously not witness to the months of destruction caused by BLM, or does not care.  The collective damage of BLM's actions in 2020, in fact, is the opposite of peace.  Their actions have done more to divide the country, rather than unify or bring about harmony.  There is nothing peaceful about cities burning, over 700 police officers being injured during riots, weeks of mandatory curfews causing millions of dollars in loss of revenue, vandalism and looting that caused billions of dollars in property damage, and the defacement and tearing down of historical monuments.

'I have receipts': Rep. Greene posts video proving who REALLY started shouting match with Rep. Cori Bush.  It appears newly elected Democrat Rep. Cori Bush, who's been accused of being a radical and liar, has no compunction about smearing her Republican colleagues.  Newly elected Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has the receipts to prove it.  In a tweet posted early Friday afternoon, Bush, a Black Lives Matter activist, accused a "maskless' Greene of having harassed her in a hallway.  In response, over 400,000 Americans, including a large number of blue checkmark elitists, blindly accepted her claim and rushed to her defense.

Black Lives Matter nominated for the Nobel peace prize.  If the Nobel committee's handing over of the Nobel peace prize to newly elected President Obama seemed like the nadir of the prize's prestige, there's now another thing coming. [...] That's right, a group led by self-described "trained Marxists" who literally spent time with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela and then triggered night after night of violent looting riots at a cost of at least 25 lives and a record $2 billion in insured property claims, (probably much more in uninsured property), and grotesque Red Guard-style repudiation scenes such as forcing restaurant diners to wave their fists in solidarity or face overturned tables and assault, is somehow ... is worthy of the world's top award for peace.

Black Lives Matter movement nominated for Nobel peace prize.  The Black Lives Matter movement has been nominated for the 2021 Nobel peace prize for the way its call for systemic change has spread around the world.  In his nomination papers, the Norwegian MP Petter Eide said the movement had forced countries outside the US to grapple with racism within their own societies.  "I find that one of the key challenges we have seen in America, but also in Europe and Asia, is the kind of increasing conflict based on inequality," Eide said.

BLM Idiots Block Seattle Highway, Spray Paint The Initials Across Lanes.  Twelve people were arrested after "BLM" was spray painted on an interstate and the highway was blocked Monday [1/18/2021] in Seattle.  Northbound I-5 near Yesler Way is Seattle was shut down while Washington State Patrol removed protesters blocking lanes, officials said.  [Video clip]

Here's How MLK's Vision Compares To Black Lives Matter's Agenda.  Civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. advocated for solutions to racial issues that do not wholly align with the agenda and past actions of the Black Lives Matter organization, though he shared some ideas about economic restructuring.  King Jr. encouraged peaceful protest rather than violence and rioting, methods that have been linked to the Black Lives Matter organization.  He also expressed a partiality for democratic socialism and said he understood the deep emotions about racism that drive rioting in the United States.  "The strong man is the man who will not hit back, who can stand up for his rights and yet not hit back," Martin Luther King Jr. said during a 1956 speech at Holt Street Baptist Church.  "If we as Negroes succumb to the temptation of using violence in our struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and bitter night of — a long and desolate night of bitterness," King said.  "And our only legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos."

If Black Lives Mattered....  The data are now conclusive that relative to the declining homicide trend line of the previous era, the Black Lives Matter push has gotten an extra 10,000 or more black lives ended over the past half dozen years.  Denouncing cops and sanctifying criminals leads to many more murders, especially of blacks shooting blacks.  Murder should instead be going down like it was before the Establishment decided at Ferguson that the system of law and order that had been more or less succeeding for twenty years should be junked on the baseless belief that black problems with the law must be the fault of the law, not of the blacks.  By 2019, blacks were up to being known murder offenders at 8.2 times the rate of nonblacks.  The 2020 ratio will likely be worse.  This inordinate murderousness is a massive problem for America, stretching far beyond its direct victims.  Murder, the ultimate crime, contributes to our hollowed-out cities and long commutes from the hinterlands.

Silence Will Be the Next Hate Crime.  Attacking so-called "hate speech" has proven an effective Trojan horse technique by BLM and Antifa social justice warriors, who have incorporated Critical Race Theory (CRT) into their pernicious plans to dismantle the Constitution. [...] CRT does not hide its plans.  Quoting Audre Lorde, BLM brazenly declares:  ["]For the master's tools will never dismantle the master's house.  They may allow us to temporarily beat him at his own game, but they will never enable us to bring about genuine change.["]  Note that "genuine change" means attacking good police, burning black businesses, and physically assaulting people whose ideas you don't wish to hear.  Actions speak louder than words:  "genuine change" means destruction, not healing; hate, not love; dictatorship.

Black Lives Matter Activist Took Part in Storming of Capitol.  John Earle Sullivan, who has advocated for an armed revolution on social media, was arrested in July 2020 for making a threat of violence and criminal mischief.  He organized a protest with Black Lives Matter activists and members of the far-left Antifa network.  According to the Deseret News, Sullivan damaged vehicles and urged people to block roadways.  Video footage captured him threatening to beat a woman.  Photographs showed Sullivan inside the Capitol in Washington on Jan. 6.  Sullivan has since given interviews claiming he took part in the illegal breach of the building as part of an effort to understand supporters of President Donald Trump.  "For me, it's important from the group and the people around me to see that side of things, to see the truth," Sullivan told KSL-TV.  "I don't care, like what side you're on, you should just see it raw."  Sullivan has not been charged with unlawful entry or any other charges that police say other people who entered the building face.  His picture is not among those circulated by authorities of persons of interest in the incident.

John Sullivan
Utah Man With a History of Organizing Violent Antifa, BLM Protests, Was Inside the Capitol.  We're beginning to learn more about the individuals who were inside the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday [1/6/2021].  A young man named John Sullivan was there.  He's from Utah and the founder of "Insurgence USA," which is a group dedicated to "racial justice and police reform."  According to numerous news reports, he has a history of organizing leftist protests and identifies with Black Lives Matter.  Over the summer, Sullivan was arrested after organizing a violent riot in Utah that ended with a shooting.  One of the host groups was the Salt Lake Antifascist [Antifa] Coalition.

Feds Bust Four for BLM Firebombings of Police Vehicles, Including Public Radio Journalist.  After a months-long investigation by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), federal authorities have arrested four people in the firebombing of police vehicles with Molotov cocktails during BLM riots in Arkansas during the summer.  According to the Post Millennial, Renea Baek Goddard, 22; Brittany Dawn Jeffrey, 31; Emily Nowlin, 27, and Aline Espinosa-Villegas, 24 were charged with malicious destruction of property belonging to an entity receiving federal funding, conspiracy to commit those acts and possession of a destructive device.

Dark Money Behemoth That Hosts BLM Foundation Received $16 Million in Government Grants.  The dark money network that houses the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation received nearly $16 million in taxpayer-funded grants last year, financial filings reveal.  The Tides Center, a California-based nonprofit incubator, reported the government grants on its 2019 tax forms.  It operates by acting as a fiscal sponsor to several left-wing nonprofits, including the BLM Global Network Foundation, which has advocated for abolishing the nuclear family and defunding the police.  This arrangement lets the nonprofits avoid disclosing their financial activity, and thus makes it difficult to know where the taxpayer-funded cash ultimately ends up.  The center's 2019 windfall adds to the $170 million it has received in government grants since 2001 — grants that have drawn criticism from nonprofit watchdogs.  Scott Walter, president of the Capital Research Center, has called Tides as "liberal and politically active as they come" and questioned whether American tax dollars should be awarded to groups housed at such networks.

Detroit suing Black Lives Matter activists for 'civil conspiracy': report.  The city of Detroit is trying a new tack during a year in which it, like many other U.S. cities, saw violent protests and destruction in the streets.  Detroit has filed a lawsuit against Black Lives Matter activists, alleging a "civil conspiracy" and claiming the protests in the city "have repeatedly turned violent, endangering the lives of police and the public," according to reports.  The city claims the activists participated in the conspiracy, "defamed" the mayor and police, and contends that the city should be awarded damages, The Intercept reported.  The city cites four protests that occurred in the city this year, and alleges that injuries to police officers included "cracked vertebrae, lacerations, and concussions," according to the report.

BLM Crash and Disrupt a Christmas Cancer Fundraiser for Kids.  The people in West Allis, Wisconsin have a lovely holiday tradition.  They have a neighborhood they've dubbed "Candy Cane Lane" from just after Thanksgiving to just after Christmas.  Everyone decorates up a storm so it's quite the sight to see, people come from all around just to visit.  But it's not just the decorations.  Visitors are encouraged to donate to childhood cancer research and blood diseases as they drive through the area, for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer (MACC).  They raised $121,000 last year and have raised almost a few million since they started in 1984.  So you would think that's the last thing that anyone would want to disrupt.  But then the Black Lives Matter group has a different view of the world.

The New Oligarchs Will Not Tolerate Secession.  [Scroll down]  Our author seems to be perplexed that the statement that "all lives matter" has been deemed "racist" by BLM. Doesn't BLM realize that as a matter of logic "all lives" includes "Black lives?"  But here is the rub.  Logic and reason are a Western imposition on the world, invented by white supremacists and white imperialists.  To say that black lives are included in all lives is demeaning — it pushes black lives into an invisible background.  Logic is not life.  The assertion "Black lives matter" is a statement of racial superiority.  It cannot be judged by "racist logic."  "All lives matter" is therefore racist — no logic necessary, only reimagination.  BLM has considerable responsibility for driving reason out of the public sphere with its claims that Western logic is racist and imperialist.  If you think BLM doesn't have that much influence on elite opinion, I invite you to think again.

40 Acres and a Mall.  Two weeks ago I'm walkin' through Century City, the business, residential, and dining district adjoining Beverly Hills.  This is familiar territory to me; it's home.  So I know when something's not right.  Like the bus full of black folks that came barreling past me down Avenue of the Stars.  And not just any bus; one of those supersize air-conditioned bathroom-in-the-back buses.  I'm not a man who speaks in absolutes, but here's one I'll stand by:  If a bus full of black people enters an upscale area and nobody on board is wearing a jersey, it's bad news.  And bad news it was.  [The passengers disembarked.]  Dozens of angry blacks with placards and bullhorns bellowing, "Whose streets?  Our streets!"  As the crowd gathered in front of a high-rise office building, I approached one of the protesters.  "What's up?"  "Man, we tryin' to get face-to-face with a racis' Jew gentrifier."  It was only out of self-preservation that I didn't answer, "Mission accomplished; what can I do for you?"  I'll go a long way for a laugh, but not that far.

How BLM Is Impacting Young Black People (Spoiler Alert:  Not Positively).  I'd say about once a week at work I get called a racist, either implicitly or explicitly — and that's just what I know about.  It's kind of an occupational hazard at this point, to be honest.  No, I'm not a prison warden or a writer for Breitbart.  I work with middle and high schoolers at an after-school program for at risk kids.  There's a pretty diverse population at our center in terms of race, sexual orientation, and social background.  I've had to learn a lot about how to reach different kids and connect with people whose lives and experiences have pretty much nothing in common with mine except for where we spend weekdays from 3:00 to 5:00 PM.  So while yes, I treat kids differently based on their needs, I have the same expectations for all of them.  I expect them to work hard, to respect themselves and others, to be accountable, and to do their best.  Unfortunately, there's this little movement, maybe you've heard of it, that's pretty much encouraging the opposite.  It's called Black Lives Matter.

Black Lives Matter movement imploding over internal power struggle, money grabs.  Black Lives Matter is facing a rebellion within its own ranks as regional affiliates seek greater control over the movement and demand answers about where millions of dollars in donations have gone.  After years of tensions between the national organization and local outlets, the rift went public this week with the release of a statement by 10 BLM chapters accusing the top brass at the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation of failing to open their books or share the wealth with the rank and file.  "For years, there has been inquiry regarding the financial operations of BLMGN and no acceptable process of either public or internal transparency about the unknown millions of dollars donated to BLMGN, which has certainly increased during this time of pandemic and rebellion," reads the "Statement from the Frontlines of BLM" posted Monday [11/30/2020].

BLM's National Arm Gave Little To Local Chapters While Reaping Millions, Local BLM Chapters Allege In Statement.  Ten local Black Lives Matter chapters issued a statement Monday accusing the movement's national arm of providing little to no financial support to its local chapters, which are responsible for carrying out BLM's mission.  The local chapters, including those of Washington, D.C., Chicago and Philadelphia, said in the statement that Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation has provided no acceptable financial transparency surrounding the "unknown millions of dollars" it has reaped since its founding in 2013.  The Daily Caller News Foundation reported in June that Black Lives Matter Global Network spent $4.5 million on consultants, travel and compensation for its staff from July 2017 through June 2019 while at the same time providing only $328,000 to outside groups such as the local autonomous BLM chapters that carry out the movement's work.

Black BLM Activists Pushing Back Against White Radical Leftist Extremists Trying to Take Over the Movement.  Here's a story that will never be covered by any major media outlet.  Tensions are rising between black members of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and white progressive anarchists in the city of Portland, Oregon.  The two groups clashed on issues related to how the movement should demonstrate against injustice.  As a result, black BLM activists are distancing themselves from white progressives affiliated with the Antifa movement, which has wreaked havoc in the city for six months.  Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB) recently reported on the split between black BLM activists and white Antifa operatives, noting that "activists in the city are divided as to whether they are still fighting in a racial justice movement centered on Black lives, or if an unfocused, anti-establishment fight against capitalism and state power has usurped the initial cause that brought thousands of Portlanders into the streets."

Parents Of BLM Protester Have Her Kidnapped And Sent To Mental Facility, Call BLM A Cult.  An 18-year-old named Gabriel Prince, or as she is better known by her street name, Shan, was taken against her will by her mother and uncle to the Erie County Medical Center by her family.  Prince's family believes Black Lives Matter is a cult and she needs a mental evaluation.  Prince has written a letter that has been posted on Instagram detailing her abduction and claims she is still currently being held against her will at the facility.  [Video clip]

BLM Woman Warns White Women And America, Just Because Biden Won [Doesn't Matter].  In Washington DC, BLM members, the actual black ones, are complaining the white members are starting to take down the BLM signs and murals after Biden's win.  What black BLM members don't realize is white liberals use them for political power and nothing else and what the white liberal BLM supporters don't understand is the black factions want to destroy capitalism, the suburbs, and their lives.  [Video clip]

#Antifa and #Black Lives Matter Are Evil.  Today the Million MAGA March took place in Washington, D.C. to support President Trump as he fights for honest election returns.  Predictably, activists/communists/criminals from Antifa and BLM — the groups no longer seem to be distinct — turned out to make trouble.  They attacked the Trump supporters; you can see a number of videos at ZeroHedge:  "BLM/Antifa Thugs Attack Trump Supporters, Including Children, After D.C. 'Million MAGA March.'"  Here, you see Antifa/BLM thugs attacking a Trump-supporting family.  They knock a little girl to the pavement:  [Video clip]  These leftists are simply evil people.  It is easy to understand why they want to defund the police:  if we had adequate law enforcement in America's cities, they would be in jail where they belong.

Black Lives Matter:  We 'Invested Heavily In This Election' And 'We Want Something For Our Vote'.  Black Lives Matter has a political agenda and its leaders now demand that as payback for supporting the potential Biden-Harris Administration throughout the election, Democrats use the White House to do the Marxist organization's bidding.  BLM Co-founder Patrisse Cullors sent a letter to former vice president Joe Biden and his Vice Presidential Nominee Kamala Harris congratulating them on winning the presidential election and demanding a meeting to discuss BLM's "expectations" for their administration.  "A well-thought-out, community-driven, fully resourced agenda that addresses the particular challenges faced by Black people must be the priority," she wrote.

Black Lives Matter Pens Letter To Joe Biden And Kamala Harris: 'We Want Something For Our Vote'.  The leader of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation recently wrote a letter addressed to "President-Elect Joe Biden and Vice-President-Elect Kamala Harris" requesting a meeting to discuss the organization's expectations and priorities.  BLM co-founder and executive director Patrisse Cullors said members are "relieved that the Trump era in government is coming to a close," adding, "As we celebrate his electoral demise, we also know that his political exit does not ensure an end to the intolerable conditions faced by Black people in America."

The Editor says...
My next-door neighbors are black.  If they face "intolerable conditions" I can't tell it from here.  The blacks who do live in bad neighborhoods are stuck there, either because of a lifetime of bad decisions, or because they consistently vote for lying, baby-killing Democrats, who promise to clean up their cities but never do.

BLM mob crashes DC Biden celebration and demand white libs bend the knee — it's their territory.  Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden's supporters got a taste of the radicalism they've tacitly endorsed Saturday [11/7/2020] when Black Lives Matter extremists hijacked a victory party they'd been holding in Washington, D.C.'s Black Lives Matter Plaza.  Video footage from the event showed one of the extremists using a bullhorn to lecture the "white liberal" Biden supporters for having "colonized" the plaza.  Every time the extremist blurted out a sentence using the bullhorn, his flock of indoctrinated disciples then repeated his sentence verbatim.

Portland BLM protesters armed with Molotov cocktails run riot on Election Eve, torching a Starbucks.  Protests in Portland continued on Monday as BLM demonstrators destroyed a Starbucks and clashed with police, amid fears that further violence could be sparked by the election.  At least two people were arrested amid the violence during which windows at Portland State University's public safety office were smashed.  Protesters also threw a flammable liquid inside the Starbucks, whose walls were graffitied with 'BLM' and 'ACAB', [...]

Supreme Court Hands Narrow Win to BLack Lives Matter Activist Over Protest Incident.  The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday [11/2/2020] sided with Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson in his ongoing effort to avoid a lawsuit filed by a police officer injured during a 2016 protest in Louisiana triggered by the police killing of a Black man.

BLM mob violently chases Jewish men showing 'solidarity' at Philadelphia protest.  Jewish men who said they were trying to show "solidarity" with Black Lives Matter protesters were violently chased away by the mob and ridiculed as being part of the "synagogue of Satan," according to disturbing video posted online.  The minute-long clip circulating on social media shows three men standing in the street during the protests sparked by the deadly police shooting of troubled local black man Walter Wallace.  "Amalek, what y'all doing down here?  You don't live here," someone asks the men, referencing the Amalek tribe, which the Jewish Virtual Library says was the first enemy of the ancient Israelites.  "Y'all know we the real Jews, right?" continues the raspy-voiced man, who appears to be the one filming the clip.

BLM Thugs Just Handed Pennsylvania To Trump On A Platter As They Plunder And Destroy Philly, Here Are Some Lowlights.  A second night of unrest in Philadelphia began Tuesday night over the police shooting death of a Black man, just as his children recalled memories of their father in front of reporters and 1,000 looters reportedly began targeting businesses, police said.  Elsewhere in the city, looters ransacked a Foot Locker, Rite Aid and other retail stores.  At least one vehicle was set on fire.  The Philadelphia Police Department warned people to avoid the Port Richmond area where at least 1,000 looters were ransacking businesses that included a Burlington Coat Factory, Target and Dollar General.  [Video clip]

BLM Chick Escapes Police While In Cuffs, Store Owner Clotheslines Her HARD in Philly!  This woman in cuffs was part of the Philly mob that thought it would be a dandy idea to destroy businesses all over Philadelphia, even if many of them were black-owned.  In this case, a black business owner's front windows were smashed in by the BLM mob, and this woman was arrested and cuffed but decided to make a run for it, only to come face to face with her prey, who becomes the predator when he clotheslines her across the face.  [Video clip]

Biden Is Running a Protection Racket.  Joe Biden's big pitch is his promise to restore calm.  It's a con.  It's Antifa and Black Lives Matter — both on his side — that are stirring everything up.  He's trying to run a protection racket: vote Democrat, or the chaos continues.  Biden talks of calm, but it is not Trump-supporters storming restaurants and other public places across the country to demand obeisance to their agenda.  Instead, from Washington to Kentucky to Florida, it is the "Black Lives Matter" movement — which Biden has made a centerpiece of his campaign — that has smashed up restaurants, threatened their owners, and demanded that diners raise the black power fist.  As one headline put it, "aggressive mob of white BLM protesters threaten and film white diners at DC restaurants and DEMAND they raise their fist and show solidarity with them... or else."  Biden speaks of tolerance, but it isn't MAGA people marching into our schools, newsrooms, and even corporate boardrooms to demand absolute allegiance; it's Biden-supporting leftists.

BLM Goons Start A Fight With Cops In NJ, Things Get Physical.  Tensions were quickly escalating Saturday when the organizer of a peace march in Englewood and a city police officer went chest-to-chest.  Then things got out of hand.  The officer was one of several who apparently was trying to disperse a march early Saturday evening, repeatedly telling participants and onlookers to back up, after what appeared to be a separate incident that occurred along the route several minutes into the event.  That's when he and Ainsworth Minott faced off, video shows.  [Video clip]

Marxism: A Breeding Ground for Useful Idiots.  One of BLM's founders is Alicia Garza, a trained Marxist.  Why is that significant?  Because it explains BLM's agenda.  Marxism's (and BLM's) ultimate goal is to ignite class warfare to provide an opportunity for the seizure of political power.  But the U.S. was created as a classless society with no royalty, no nobility, no caste system.  Everyone is equal under the law.  How, then, do Marxists ignite class warfare?  By creating false classes, then propagandizing them into existence.  This is where useful idiots come into play.  Once people believe that these false classes exist, class warfare can begin.

Coming soon, food desert:  BLM shakes down Seattle Trader Joe's for a 15% cut.  Grocery retailer Trader Joe's, which refused to cave in to political correctness in its product names, is experiencing new problems with Black Lives Matter protesters in Seattle, according to Breitbart News:  ["]Black Lives Matter protesters pushed their way into a Seattle Trader Joe's demanding the company give "15 percent at least."  The group has repeated the tactic of harassing the store's staff and customers over the past few months.  A video tweeted Thursday night shows a large group of BLM activists entering a Seattle Trader Joe's store.  They chanted and beat drums as they marched through the grocery chain location.["]  Seattle has five Trader Joe's locations, and Breitbart reports that three of them have been hit in this way.  It shows that Trader Joe's, which resisted the demands, remains a target, based on Seattle's failure to send police to protect them.

Sophomore at University of Kansas is put on probation by her sorority for 'unbecoming' behavior after she shared a Candace Owens post criticizing Black Lives Matter.  A University of Kansas sorority member has been put on probation for 'unbecoming' behavior after she shared a Candace Owens post criticizing Black Lives Matter.  Sophomore Katherine Lauer was rebuked by the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority after reposting a tweet from the black conservative commentator in which she said BLM was 'the most flagrantly racist organization in America'.  Owens wrote on September 23:  'Black Lives Matter is an organization of white men, using the faces of dead black people, to raise millions of dollars toward electing white Democrats into positions of power.'

Yes, a Pro-China Group in America Supports a Black Lives Matter Founder.  The Daily Signal last month revealed links between the Black Lives Matter organizations and the Chinese Progressive Association of San Francisco.  My piece went viral — and for good reason.  It broke news that the liberal-dominated media would prefer to ignore. [...] The Daily Signal's reporting is important because the Chinese Progressive Association of San Francisco is the financial sponsor of two ventures associated with Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza: the Black Futures Lab and the Black to the Future Action Fund.  More importantly, the Chinese Progressive Association of San Francisco trains activists and helped mobilize Chinese Americans for the violent protests we saw this year as well as in 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri.  So did like-named organizations in New York and Boston, run independently but set up by the same Maoist Marxists.

Group That Sponsors BLM, Left-Wing Orgs Reportedly Received $170M in Taxpayer Money.  A group that serves as a fiscal sponsor for various liberal-leaning organizations has reportedly been the recipient of almost $170 million in government grant money.  One tumbles down a rabbit hole when exploring the financials of the Tides Center, the gatekeeper of these taxpayer funds.  The San Francisco-based nonprofit, in conjunction with its sibling Tides Foundation and working under the Tides umbrella, has shrouded itself behind a 501(c)(3) status, while cloaking its extensive heritage as a left-wing cash clearinghouse.

BLM Storms Trader Joe's, Forces Manager To Pledge Allegiance To The Group.  After forcing their way into Seattle area Trader Joe's store, Black Lives Matter group tries to get Trader Joe's manager to pledge allegiance to BLM.  When the manager remains silent, the BLM protester says back, "Silence is violence."  [Video clip]

BLM lily-white goons
Here's every Antifa goon arrested in Portland last night during their BLM anti-police protest.  Notice anything they all have in common?  The Antifa dweebs were out in Portland last night, dressed in black and covered in body armor (and body odor, no doubt), and 26 of them got themselves arrested.  Just curious:  Do you notice anything they all have in common? [...] Armored attire or not, judging by the mugshots, those must've been the easiest 26 arrests ever made.  I honestly feel bad for these lost souls.  They are desperate for a cause to believe in.

More evidence that Breonna Taylor was living on the dark side.  When Breonna Taylor died in a hail of police bullets, she joined the pantheon of Black Lives Matter martyrs, men such as George Floyd, Michael Brown, Jacob Blake, and Trayvon Martin.  Initially, she seemed anomalous because she was not engaged in criminal activity or resisting arrest when she died.  New evidence, though, shows that, in addition to her relationship with a drug dealing ex-boyfriend (which is what caught the police's attention), the boyfriend who shot the police was also a drug dealer.  Taylor hung out with the wrong people.  BLM needed Taylor.

BLM Marches Down Florida Sidewalks Crowded with Kids.  Demonstrators took to the streets in Florida on Saturday [10/10/2020] marching through sidewalks crowded with children and diners.  The protesters chanted "No justice no peace."  The recent protests have been widely shared on social media following an incident in St. Petersburg, Florida, where protesters surrounded a couple who were dining.  Protesters even threatened to punch one of the diners last month.  The protests appear to be a regular sight in St. Petersburg where groups of activists walked down sidewalks apparently filled with diners and children.

Not Making Headlines:  Alleged "Right-wing" Militia Member Arrested for Plot Against Gov. Whitmer Was Black Lives Matter Protester and Sympathizer.  On Thursday [10/8/2020] the FBI announced during a press conference that it thwarted a plot by a so-called "right-wing militia" to kidnap and kill Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer and overthrow the state government.  Early Thursday morning, federal agencies raided a house in Hartland, Michigan and arrested six men:  Adam Fox, Barry Croft, Ty Garbin, Kaleb Franks, Daniel Harris, and Brandon Caserta.  Whitmer immediately blamed the plot on President Trump telling the Proud Boys to "stand back and stand by."  "Hate groups heard the president's words as a rallying cry, as a call to action," Whitmer said blaming white supremacists.  It turns out Brandon Caserta, one of anarchists who was arrested for plotting to kidnap Whitmer, actually hates President Trump and is on video calling Trump a "tyrant."

Delaware Pizza Shop Cancels Event for Republican Senate Candidate After Pressure From BLM.  Grotto Pizza in Delaware has cancelled a campaign event for America First senate candidate Lauren Witzke following a pressure campaign from the left.  The owner of the pizza joint then opted to go to the media and lie about their reason for the last-minute cancellation.  After Witzke announced her meet and greet at the venue, the left set up petitions and began a harassment campaign to get the owner to cancel the event.  Their mob tactics worked, and less than 24 hours before the event, the shop posted on Facebook that it had been cancelled. [...] Speaking to Delaware Online, Jeffrey Gosnear, vice president of Grotto Pizza Inc., claimed that they did not know the event was political and that they have banned political gatherings since the 2018 midterms.  However, the Gateway Pundit can confirm that there have been multiple political events at Grotto since 2018.

The Moment This BLM Leader Figured Out That 4 Months Of Yelling At White People And Breaking Stuff Was A Giant Waste Of Time.  Watch as the social justice light goes out on this Black Lives Matter leader as she realizes screaming at people through a bullhorn and causing chaos doesn't change minds.  Support for the Black Lives Matter movement has cratered over the past three months — as some protests led by the group have descended into violence and looting, a new poll has found.  [Video clip]

Is Warren Buffett the Wallet Behind Black Lives Matter?  In July of 2013, the seeds of the most powerful protest movement of the modern era were planted.  In a restless climate of nationwide demonstrations touched off by the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, an activist named Alicia Garza uttered the phrase "Black lives matter."  A few months later, in October 2013, Garza took a job with an organization called the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and the nonprofit immediately saw a dramatic increase in its funding from organizations tied to some of the wealthiest people in the world — people with names like Buffett, Soros, and Rockefeller.  This spring, in the wake of the killing of George Floyd, the movement became a global interest:  Some 1.1 million individual donations worth an estimated $33 million flowed into its coffers.  Large corporations, especially in Silicon Valley and retail, have been quick to follow suit, with brands like Square, Ubisoft, Google, Spanx, Tom's Shoes, Lululemon, Nike, and Anastasia Beauty all making six- and seven-figure organizational pledges.

Cashier Hands Out Plastic Bags To BLM Looters To Make It Easier On Them.  A cashier at a Speedway in Milwaukee was caught on video handing out plastic bags to BLM looters to make it easier [to] lug their booty out of the [store].  A live streamer later reported the business was left in shambles, totally cleaned out.  [Video clip]

BLM Rioters Attack Businesses and Private Homes in Wisconsin.  Those "peaceful protesters" who Michelle Obama was talking about were at it again tonight in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.  The riots have been continuing elsewhere, while we've been covering the debates and the president getting ill.  They haven't stopped.  But they got another "spark" off today.  Not that they really need any more, because truthfully facts don't matter to these rioters.  On Wednesday[,] we found out that an officer would not face charges in the death of 17 year old Alvin Cole because there was sufficient evidence to believe that the Wauwatosa officer, who was also black, Joseph Mensah, had reason for self-defense.  That kicked them off.  As Julio Rosas reported for Townhall, a group then went on a smashing rampage throughout the town.  First, they smashed up the windows of businesses including Kumon Learning.  Because apparently helping kids to learn is offensive to the BLM.

The BLM Riot Victims Michelle Obama Doesn't [Care] About.  Former First Lady Michelle Obama is out with a new campaign video for Joe Biden.  In it, she accuses President Trump and his followers of racism for daring to discuss and combat violent riots in Democrat cities across the country.  [Tweet]  "Only a tiny fraction of demonstrations have had any violence at all."  Really? [...] While she lectures Americans and virtue signals on racism, Mrs. Obama won't tell you who has been affected the most by those riots: minorities.  Take for example this Minneapolis woman, whose neighborhood was destroyed. [...] Or this African immigrant who spent his life savings on a business that was burned to the ground. [...] Or this furniture store owner, whose life's work was demolished.

BLM Co-Founder Claims Joe Biden Is Part Of "Violent White Supremacist" System.  Vice President Joe Biden would like America's youth to believe that he has bent over backwards to 'really listen' to the demands of young progressives/cryptomarxists, including the activists in "Black Lives Matter".  Unfortunately for him, the transparent pandering hasn't been all that convincing.  Even after Biden and his fellow Democrats tacitly indulged the worst excesses of these so-called "activists" — anarchic rioting and violence in cities big and small across American — it seems the former VEEP, who played second fiddle to America's first black president for 8 years, has failed to win the BLM crowd over.  The latest evidence of this an be found in an ABC News interview with several young activists who are 'still out in the streets' peacefully protesting tell the press that they might consider voting for a third-party candidate instead of Biden.  [Video clip]

BLM meets Proud Boys, discovers they're not racists and 'POOF,' the media disappears.  Notice how all the attention on the "Proud Boys" organization fell off the map in the past few days.  Granted, President Donald Trump and a growing number of people in his inner circle have tested positive for COVID-19, aka the "plague from China," and that has come to dominate the news cycle since the debate, but the Trump-hating media is known to stay on a story they believe may hurt his reelection chances for days on end.  Or, is there really not much of a story there to begin with?  Another failed narrative by those looking to undermine the president — we've lost count of how many there have been since the original Russian collusion hoax.  Jacarri Kelley, who identifies herself as the leader of Black Lives Matter, Northern Utah, is seen in a video making the rounds suggesting the media narrative about the group being racist just isn't so.  [Video clip]

The Art of Propaganda.  Black Lives Matter and Antifa were created by a white intellectual elite, an elite whose origins derive not from the classical liberal and Judeo-Christian traditions of the American revolution, but from the atheist/libertine/totalitarian tenets of the French.  And the faces of BLM and Antifa are closer to Charles Manson than Malcolm X.  Many African-Americans realize they are being played — used to advance a hidden agenda — but most are not cognizant of the propaganda that envelopes and molds them.

Black Lives Matter logos in the workplace divide employers, workers and customers.  Swedish and Starbucks allow it.  QFC and Bartell Drugs do not.  The grocery union is willing to fight about it, legal experts say it's federally protected and some customers think it's a reason to change where they shop.  It's the Black Lives Matters logo, whose presence on everything from buttons and shirts to masks and pins has created workplace tensions at many businesses.  "I'm disappointed and angry we aren't allowed to show support for [what] we believe in," said a worker at a Seattle-area location of the Shari's Restaurant chain in response to a reader survey by The Seattle Times.  A Shari's spokesperson said no logos of any kind are permitted on employees' clothing, and buttons and pins are not allowed for "safety reasons and consistency."  While many business are embracing the issue — or, at least, coming to terms with it — others say politics doesn't belong in the workplace.

The Editor says...
You are free to show support for your favorite cause in any business that you own, as long as your customers aren't offended.  If you work for somebody other than yourself, you usually have to keep your opinions to yourself.

Is the United States in the Midst of an Insurgency?  The three co-founders of BLM — Patrisse Khan Cullors, Alicia Garza, and Opal Tometi — all have Marxist Socialism at the core of their ideologies.  According to the Capital Research Center, the three women worked for the Freedom Road Socialist Organization's front groups.  The FRSO is one of the country's largest radical-left organizations.  Tometi actively promotes Socialism and anti-western socio-economics, while Cullors has publicly stated that the leaders of BLM are "trained Marxists." [...] The vast majority of BLM members and supporters make up what Vladimir Lenin called "the useful idiots."  That is, the people actively working for a cause without really understanding the cause's objectives.  They are cynically being used to achieve an end they may have never intended.  The core organizers' goal is to keep the useful idiots blind to the truth for as long as possible while indoctrinating them into the cause.

House Conservatives Call for Probe of China's Ties to Black Lives Matter Co-Founder.  The FBI should investigate evidence of ties between a pro-China group and a co-founder of Black Lives Matter that may have contributed to unrest in U.S. cities, seven House conservatives told The Daily Signal.  "The Black Lives Matter organization's leaders are open about their devotion to Marxism, so there's little wonder they're teaming up with the Chinese Communist Party's United Front Work Department to advocate destabilizing and destructive violence and rioting in American cities," Rep. Jim Banks, R-Ind., said.  Banks, a member of the Republican Study Committee's China Task Force, said he will call on the Justice Department to investigate "this relationship" and determine any violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

White BLM Supporters Flee From Black Trump Supporters in Cleveland.  The incident took place during a 5 hour-plus live stream broadcast by YouTuber Baked Alaska.  The initial argument took place between Baked Alaska and Biden supporters dressed as doctors.  As the two groups debated abortion, one of the Biden supporters sardonically attempted to hand Baked Alaska a face mask as his friend, who is seen wearing an 'I can't breathe' face mask, then tries to get in the YouTuber's face.  However, the atmosphere suddenly changed when several black Trump supporters joined the fray, eventually prompting the white BLM leftists to flee in panic at the dreadful optics of them supposedly supporting 'Black Lives Matter' while shouting at black people and telling them to shut up.

Loudmouth BLM Agitator With A Bullhorn Is Caught Off Guard When A White Guy Stands Up To Her, Makes Her Leave.  BLM activists and thugs operate based on either of two modus operandi.  They block traffic — creating dangerous situations in the pursuit of becoming a martyr, they seek the confrontation where drivers may hit them.  Another strategy is harassing people at restaurants, people having a night out with friends or family:  The call exercising their First Amendment right.  This group of Black Lives Matter Harassment Team was holding up pictures of Breonna Taylor while targeting white patrons eating diner.  [Video clip]

Man Raised Nearly Half-A-Million For Black Lives Matter But Spent The Money On Himself.  He called himself Sir Maejor Page but his real name was Tyree Conyers-Page.  He started to make a name for himself as an Atlanta-area activists in 2015 and founded an organization called Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta.  For most of the past several years his efforts to promote the organization weren't terribly successful, but that all changed after the killing of George Floyd and the police shooting of Rayshard Brooks.  This summer BLM of Greater Atlanta benefited from a huge influx of donations totaling nearly half-a-million dollars.

Black Lives Matter supporter charged with attempted murder for driving her car through group of Trump supporters.  A Black Lives Matter supporter was arrested and charged with attempted murder after she reportedly drove her car through a crowd of Trump supporters in California.  Black Lives Matter-aligned protesters attending a "Caravan for Justice" event clashed with Trump supporters Saturday afternoon in Yorba Linda, California, which reached a tipping point when Tatiana Turner, 40, allegedly drove her sedan through the group of Trump supporters.  Turner was reportedly in the area to protest in the "Caravan for Justice" over the death of Breonna Taylor in Louisville earlier this year.  Video of the incident was posted to Twitter, garnering hundreds of thousands of views.

BLM: Where Does the Money Go?  In recent months, the Black Lives Matter organization has raised hundreds of millions of dollars (possibly into the billions) from individual and corporate donations.  One Minnesota businessman gave the group $25 million.  What do they do with all that cash?  The BLM web site doesn't answer that question, nor does it even tell us what sort of a legal entity BLM is.  You can donate [...], but your contribution doesn't go to BLM; at least, not directly.  It goes to ActBlue Charities.  ActBlue, to my knowledge, is primarily a fundraising arm of the Democratic Party, although it does raise money for far-left nonprofits as well.  The BLM Donate page also says that "[y]our contribution will benefit Black Lives Matter Support Fund at Tides Foundation."  You can read about the Tides Foundation [elsew]here.  It funnels enormous amounts of money to a variety of far-left organizations.  I have no idea what BLM will do with the vast sums of money it is now raising.

As Popularity Ebbs, Black Lives Matter Hides Its Agenda.  Americans overwhelmingly agree that the lives of black people have as much value as the lives of white people and people of every skin color.  Black lives don't just "matter" (that's such a utilitarian word); they are precious in God's sight because they reflect his image.  That's why the unjustified deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor this summer jarred so many Americans, including many white evangelicals (and why we should be similarly horrified by Chicago's murder wave:  558 and counting this year).  But the organization calling itself "Black Lives Matter" stands for something quite different.

BLM Thugs Interrogate Store Owner If He Supports BLM And Cares About Breonna Taylor, Store Owner Is WELL ARMED And Could Care Less.  This Black Lives Matter thugs are going around Louisville businesses and demanding owners for loyalty to the BLM cause.  If store owners don't acquiesce, then who knows, maybe they won't have a store for long.  This shop owner had purchased an insurance policy beforehand and proudly displayed it in his second amendment loving hands.  [Video clip]

Atlanta activist spent $200G in Black Lives Matter donations on house, personal expenses:  FBI.  The FBI has arrested the founder of a Black Lives Matter group in Atlanta on fraud and money laundering charges.  Sir Maejor Page, 32, was accused Friday of misappropriating $200,000 in donations he solicited through Facebook on behalf of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, Fox 5 Atlanta reported Friday [9/25/2020].  Page was arrested in Toledo and released on bond after appearing before a judge via video.  He did not immediately return messages Saturday from Fox News.

Burn Loot Murder Pursues and Then Attacks a Driver Who Just Wanted to Get Home.  I think we should all remember his aversion to responding with violence equal to the mob's resulted in him being beaten.  And Ron DeSantis' push to make drivers immune from any liability if they run down a "protester" while fleeing a mob is now shown to be critical.  In the meantime, citizens can do their part by simply refusing to convict anyone, or refusing to vote for a monetary judgement against anyone, brought into court for running down "protesters" acting like lawless bandits.

Louisville police major calls BLM and Antifa supporters 'punks' who will always be 'living in their parents' basement' and 'washing our cars'.  A Louisville Metro Police major blasted Black Lives Matter protesters and Antifa as 'punks' who will always be living in their parents' basement, working in Walmart or 'washing our cars' in a message to colleagues last month.  Maj. Bridget Hallahan, who is white and commands the city's Fifth Division, allegedly claimed that police officers in the city and their families are also being 'doxed'.  She invited cops in her division to come to her office to 'vent together' and called on them not to 'validate' the protesters or to 'make them important'.

The Editor says...
[#1] Apparently the Daily Mail wants us to think these are controversial statements.  I don't think so.  [#2] If Major Hallahan had been black, her race would never have been mentioned in the article above.

Charles Barkley's Truthful Comments About Breonna Taylor Shooting Spark Backlash.  The truth matters, at least it appears to with Charles Barkley.  The basketball legend is once again speaking out, this time about the police shooting of Breonna Taylor.  While essentially everyone else in the sports community is afraid to say anything that deviates one millimeter from the Black Lives Matter narrative, Barkley appears to know some of the details leading up to Taylor's death and isn't afraid to share his thoughts.

Kamala Harris praises BLM, says ongoing protests are 'essential' for change in US.  Peaceful protests against racial injustice are critical for the nation's progress and help to keep law enforcement in check, Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., said Friday [9/25/2020].  "Nothing that we have achieved that has been about progress, in particular around civil rights, has come without a fight, and so I always am going to interpret these protests as an essential component of evolution in our country — as an essential component or mark of a real democracy," the vice presidential nominee said during the NAACP's national convention.  She added that protests were "necessary" as "the people's voices must be heard, and it is often the people who must speak to get their government to do what it is supposed to do, but may not do naturally unless the people speak loudly — and obviously peacefully."

Former Whataburger worker files complaint against company over Black Lives Matter mask.  A former Whataburger employee is filing a discrimination complaint against the fast food company after she says she was told her Black Lives Matter mask was inappropriate for work.  The employee says she'd worn the mask to work before, but she says it didn't become a problem until a customer complained and threatened to notify corporate.

BLM's (Reverse) Marxist Makeover.  Deception is a method for Marxists.  Martin Luther King Jr. saw it.  Everyone saw it.  It's another reason why most people don't like Marxism.  Apparently, the leaders of BLM have gotten the memo.  They're systematically purging from their website any material being flagged as Marxist or sympathetic to or suggestive of Marxism.  I've been forced to deal with that material.  I've done at least 50 interviews on my new book, The Devil and Karl Marx, which doesn't contain a single reference to Black Lives Matter, and yet, I get asked about BLM in nearly every interview.  Interviewers ask about BLM's founders, particularly Patrisse Cullors, who said of herself and co-founder Alicia Garza, "We actually do have an ideological frame.  Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers.  We are trained Marxists."

Costco pulls Palmetto Cheese after founder calls BLM a 'terrorist organization'.  Palmetto Cheese, a regional pimento cheese brand based in South Carolina, is getting grilled by shoppers and social media alike after publicly comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to a "terrorist organization."  Now, Costco is pulling the popular cheese spread from its stores' shelves, USA Today reports.  Palmetto Cheese founder Brian Henry, who also happens to be mayor of Pawleys Island, spurred outrage last month when he took a controversial stand against BLM.

The Editor says...
The article above goes on to quote Brian Henry's statement in full.  After reading it, I agree with Mr. Henry.

Herschel Walker addresses 'elephant in the room', claiming links between BLM, China and Dem Party.  Former NFL superstar Herschel Walker, an avid supporter of President Trump, is no fan of the Black Lives Matter political movement.  Walker set his sights on the far-left movement in a video shared Monday on Twitter, saying November is the "most important election in HISTORY," as he highlighted the "elephant in the room."

Costco removes popular cheese after Black Lives Matter controversy.  Costco has stopped carrying products from a pimento cheese brand owned by a South Carolina mayor who called the Black Lives Matter and Antifa movements "terror organizations."  Brian Henry, the mayor of Pawleys Island and owner of Palmetto Cheese, told the Georgetown Times that the company's products were being pulled "as a matter of normal business" and that the wholesale retailer rotates items in and out regularly.

BLM's 'Trained Marxist' Co-Founder Calls for Witchcraft to Be Introduced to Movement.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has called for witchcraft and "invoking spirits" to be introduced to her supposed anti-racism organization.Cullors, who previously declared that BLM was founded by "trained Marxists," has admitted the movement is not just about "racial and social justice."  According to Cullors, Black Lives Matter is, "at its core, it's a spiritual movement" that involves "invoking spirits" with gifts and mantras until "those spirits actually become present with you."

BLM Activist Wearing 'Justice for Breonna Taylor' Shirt Walked into a Louisville Bar and Murdered Three People.  A black male walked into a Louisville bar owned by a retired police officer and shot three random people at point blank range on Friday night — while wearing a Justice for Breonna Taylor shirt.  The suspect was smiling from ear to ear as he was arrested for the shooting at Bungalow Joe's Bar and Grill.  Michael E. Rhynes Jr., 33, was arrested just after midnight Saturday after police found him crawling in brush near the restaurant, according to a report from WDRB.  The shooter was wearing a "Justice for Breonna Taylor" t-shirt.  Naturally, the national media has completely ignored this story — which certainly would not have been the case if a mass shooter had been wearing a "Trump" shirt.

BLM 101 History Lesson:  The 2020 Criminal$ Justice Movement.  Given the hyperfocus regarding landing "on the right side of history," let me take the first crack at defining the history being forged by Black Lives Matter, Colin Kaepernick, Lebron James, Nike and their media sycophants.  They've created the Criminals Justice Movement.  Or better yet, the Criminal$ Justice Movement.  The intense fight for the rights of criminal suspects resisting arrest is really just a cash grab by Democratic politicians, Nike and athletes, celebrities and journalists seeking social media influence. [...] Kap and Nike continue to cash in on black tragedies.  Their raising of awareness around police brutality raises awareness of Kaepernick and causes Nike cash registers to ring across the globe.  Earlier this week, the nation's leading Criminal$ Justice attorney Ben Crump bragged to reporters about the $12 million settlement the city of Louisville will pay Breonna Taylor's family.  It was good advertising.  You've heard of ambulance-chasing lawyers.  Crump chases hearses.

'O.C.' Star Samaire Armstrong:  Black Lives Matter Movement a '1 Billion-Dollar Domestic Terrorist Organization' Run by 'Marxist Criminals'.  Actress Samaire Armstrong launched into an impassioned speech in a 7-minute video that saw the O.C. star hammer the "far-left mob," call out the "Marxist criminals" and "uneducated woke white" people pushing the Black Lives Matter movement, and she declared Joe Biden and Kamala Harris "out of their minds."  Armstrong also praised police, who she said "have been thrown under the bus by spineless politicians."

Black conservatives rise to counter Black Lives Matter narrative.  The Black Lives Matter movement is dominating the headlines.  But just as every action has an equal and opposite reaction, Black conservatives have never been more visible.  From fresh faces like Diante Johnson and Rob Smith to greybeards like Shelby Steele and Robert Woodson, Black conservatives are everywhere, taking on the left and the Black Lives Matter narrative in speeches, bestsellers, films, radio shows, podcasts and PragerU videos, as well as regular appearances on Fox News.  Such saturation didn't happen overnight.  Black intellectuals, media figures and activists have been gaining ground for years, but they were uniquely positioned to break out with the eruption in May of mass Black Lives Matter protests on the left spurred by the death of George Floyd.

Black leaders:  BLM about overthrow of U.S., not race.  Many black leaders contend the growing Black Lives Matter movement isn't really about empowering blacks, it's about destroying the American system and rebuilding it according to Marxist principles.  The leaders recognize, points out Gatestone Institute senior fellow Soeren Kern, that Black Lives Matter is "an ideological descendant of the Black Power Movement, the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground."  Those movements "sought to overthrow the U.S. political system."  The focus on racial issues, Kern wrote, "appears to be a smokescreen for a much larger effort to dismantle the American economic, political and social systems and rebuild them from scratch — according to Marxist principles."

Support for BLM Drops Among Hispanics, White Voters, and Republicans, New Poll Shows.  Support for the Black Lives Matter movement has fallen since June, dropping more than 12 percentage points over the past three months among non-black Americans, according to a poll published Thursday [9/17/2020].  Roughly 55% of American adults said that they supported BLM in September, compared to 67% of people who said the same thing in June, according to a poll from the Pew Research Center.  White American support fell the most, dipping from 60% in June to 45% in September, the poll found.

This BLM Co-Founder and Pro-Communist China Group Are Partnering Up.  [Scroll down]  It is clear, then, that CPA works with China's communist government, pushes its agenda here in the United States, and is regularly praised by China's state-owned mouthpieces.  It is clear, too, from, this perspective, why the CPA would sponsor a new enterprise by BLM founder Alicia Garza: they espouse the same desire for world communism.  Garza sits atop a worldwide revolutionary empire, starting with the Black Lives Matter Global Network she founded, which now has 15 chapters in the U.S. and several more all over Canada, Australia, and Europe.  As Foreign Affairs wrote in its September/October issue, "Today, BLM has a global network of dozens of chapters.  This number will likely grow exponentially in the coming years."  Garza is also behind the Movement for Black Lives, with its 50 domestic organizations.  In July she said, "We helped to also pull together an ecosystem that was much broader than the organization that we founded, and that ecosystem is called the Movement for Black Lives and it is taking the world by storm."  Movement for Black Lives is unabashedly anti-capitalist, saying on its website, "we are anti-capitalist.  We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system."

Study: Up To 95 Percent Of 2020 U.S. Riots Are Linked To Black Lives Matter.  Contrary to corporate media narratives, up to 95 percent of this summer's riots are linked to Black Lives Matter activism, according to data collected by the Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED). The data also show that nearly 6 percent — or more than 1 in 20 — of U.S. protests between May 26 and Sept. 5 involved rioting, looting, and similar violence, including 47 fatalities.  ACLED is a nonprofit organization that tracks conflict across the globe.  Its U.S. project that collected the summer protest data is supported by Princeton University.  The project's spreadsheet collating tens of thousands of data points documents 12,045 incidents of U.S. civil unrest from May 26, 2020 to Sept. 5, 2020.  May 26 is the day after George Floyd's death in police custody with enough fentanyl in his system to have died of an overdose if police had never touched him.

Black Lives Matter Led to [a] Record Number of Mass Shootings.  Even as gun violence breaks records in New York City, Chicago, and Philly, the Democrats don't have much to say about the epidemic of shootings or their pet cause, gun control.  While activist Democrat prosecutors like Attorney General Letitia James have neglected to deal with the violence and are instead targeting the NRA, they aren't really talking about gun control.  Mass shootings are rarely mentioned anymore even though there are more of them than ever.  A Washington D.C. mass shooting at a cookout last month that wounded 20 people was treated as another local crime story.  And there are a lot of these local crime stories as shootings rise.  New York City has blown past 1,000 shootings, of all kinds, individual and mass, Philly hit 1,300, and Chicago is approaching 3,000 shootings.  3 Democrat cities alone will soon account for some 5,000 shootings.

Chinese Organization With Communist Party Ties Funds Black Lives Matter Ventures.  The Black Futures Lab, a venture of Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, is sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA), an organization that works with China's communist government to push its agenda in the United States, according to an investigation by the Heritage Foundation's Mike Gonzalez.  Gonzalez discovered that the Black Futures Lab donation page explicitly states they are "a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association," explaining where donations to Black Futures Lab are funneled.  Gonzalez explains the history of the CPA in the United States, documenting the activities the group sponsors on behalf of the Chinese government, including one instance in which the People's Republic of China flag was flown over Boston's City Hall to honor the takeover of China by the Chinese Communist Party.  The CPA is routinely praised for its work in the U.S. by China's official mouthpiece, China Daily.

BLM Facebook Account Still Active Despite Repeatedly Posting Addresses of Conservatives.  A group of Milwaukee Black Lives Matter militants are bringing "protests" to the homes of Trump supporters.  On Tuesday evening [9/15/2020], a Trump supporter was arrested for holding a shotgun by the window of his own home as it was surrounded by a mob of far-left lunatics — and it turns out it wasn't this group's first time showing up at the home of a random person to "protest" and intimidate.  On a Facebook page called "Justice Tour 2020," Vaun L Mayes, a man who describes himself as "Milwaukee's Malcolm X," has been posting personal information on Trump supporters.  The page is littered with people's phone numbers, addresses, and calls for crowds to show up at their homes for "protest parties."

Rochester Mayor Fires Police Chief Who Already Resigned Over Alleged BLM Complaint.  [T]he Chief of Police in Rochester, New York resigned, along with his entire command staff, in the wake of riots and unrest over the death of Daniel Prude following his arrest in March.  The mob taking to the streets had already injured three police officers and engaged in the usual acts of arson so many cities have experienced this year.  Chief Le'Ron Singletary was scheduled to depart at the end of the month after a replacement was identified, but that apparently wasn't good enough for Mayor Lovely Warren.  She fired Singletary yesterday [9/14/2020], effective immediately.

Do you want to be controlled or do you want to be free?  The Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots are about control.  These "activists" want to control the narrative and shift the conversation, any conversation, to always be about their demands.  Some Americans truly desire the types of controls these "activists" are demanding.  They want to be told what to do in an effort to maintain their social justice credibility.  Others want the freedom to drive down a highway with a reasonable expectation that "protesters" aren't causing mayhem and affecting people's lives by blocking the roads.

The Black Lives Matter Movement Needs to Die.  My patience has run out.  As the country has been engulfed by rioting, looting, and violence since mid-summer, I've tried to couch my criticisms of the Black Lives Matter movement in ways that show grace to those who I truly feel are discussing issues in good faith.  And while I've always known the actual BLM organization was a dumpster fire, I knew there were others who simply considered themselves part of a broader, more positive path that paralleled some aspects, but didn't buy into everything BLM espoused.  I can't make that distinction anymore.  BLM has lost that right with their latest behavior, if they already hadn't long before.  RedState covered some of their newest, most vile antics this morning, which occurred after two police officers were shot in cold blood in Los Angeles.

More than 100 BLM protesters shut down George Washington Bridge in Manhattan and then violently clash with NYPD outside their precinct.  A group of Black Lives Matter protesters blockaded the George Washington Bridge into Manhattan on Saturday night, closing off traffic for around 20 minutes before marching to a police precinct and clashing with the NYPD.  Hawk Newsome, leader of the Greater New York chapter of BLM, said three people had been arrested following a violent confrontation outside an upper Manhattan police precinct.

Police Shooting of Suspect Charging Officer Armed with A Knife Sets Off Rioting In Lancaster Pennsylvania.  The officer had been called to a "domestic disturbance". [...] The officer can be heard saying to the woman "Where'd he go?"  As the woman opens the door and begins to exit, the officer tells her to "Get back, get back."  As she does so a tall black man exits the front door and comes down the steps as the officer retreats.  The black man is holding a large kitchen knife above his head and begins charging towards the officer.  The officer defends himself from attack by shooting the suspect from a distance of 5-8 feet, killing him.  The incident was captured on the officer's body cam video:  [Video clip]  Further information coming out tonight is that the dead subject, Richardo Munoz, seems to have been known to law enforcement, and has stabbed people in the past. [...] BLM is protesting at the Lancaster Police station tonight over the death of Ricardo Munoz — another standout citizen wrongfully gunned down by lawless police in the prime of his life.

BLM Blocks Entrances to Hospitals While Celebrating Shooting of Two LA Deputy Sheriffs.  On Saturday evening [9/12/2020], in Compton, California, two Los Angeles Sheriff's Department Deputies were ambushed and shot while sitting in their patrol car. [...] Both deputies were shot in the head at close range, and both were in critical condition Saturday night after undergoing surgery.  Compton is part of notorious "South Central Los Angeles".  The hostile relationship between police and the residents and gang members in the area goes back generations.  The Sheriff's Office put out on social media that protesters were blocking the entrances to the hospital and ambulances and paramedics were having difficulty getting through.

L.A. sheriffs shot in cold blood, BLM 'protestors' block emergency room entrance, chanting 'we hope they die'.  In a demonstration of astounding psychopathetic brutality, Black Lives Matter protestors blocked the entrance to a Los Angeles emergency room as two near-mortally wounded sheriffs, ambushed in cold blood in Compton, were brought in bleeding.  And to make sure nobody misunderstood their intentions, they chanted in unison:  "We hope they die." [...] Democrats, as of this writing, are silent.  The district's congresswoman, Nanette Diaz Barragan, is focused on keeping her congressional district's population numbers high enough to keep her seat, is calling for an end to immigration enforcement.  Not a word about the crime in her district, including this act with a striking resemblance to a Mexican cartel hit job.

BLM 'Protesters' Take Over a McDonald's, Assault the Black Manager.  Black Lives Matter protests have continued to deteriorate in some cases.  This latest example being the accosting of a McDonald's employee in Pittsburgh, PA.  The large group of "protesters" entered the store with a megaphone, took over the lobby, and got into an altercation with the manager of the establishment, who is black.  At one point, the man and a protester get into a physical back and forth after the latter began to yell in his face with the megaphone.  Though I'm not sure about Pennsylvania, in many states, it is still assault to try to damage someone's hearing (or eyesight to give another example).  In other words, assault is not just limited to throwing punches, though they did grapple some.  [Video clip]

New Study Shows Hundreds of BLM 'Protests' Turned Violent.  For months Democrats and their allies in the media have claimed Black Lives Matter protests in cities across the country have been "mostly peaceful."  Recently, CNN ran a chyron that stated "fiery but mostly peaceful" as a building in Kenosha, Wisconsin burned to the ground.  But contrary to the narrative and according to a new study from Princeton University, over the past four months hundreds of "protests" have turned into violent, destructive riots.

Rochester Proves 'Black Lives' Don't Matter to BLM.  or almost a week, Black Lives Matter and like-minded activists have been marching in the streets of Rochester, New York, protesting the death of Daniel Prude at the hands of police.  BLM zealots even harassed diners and overturned tables at two restaurants located next to the apartment building in which I live, creating a social media firestorm.  Events in Rochester have even attracted the notice of none other than President Donald Trump. [...] Daniel Prude died months ago, and under circumstances that hardly suggest racial animus played a role in his demise.  He was a mentally deranged man on drugs — someone the police had to restrain as best they could.  And restrain him they did, based on well-established policies and procedures.  Unfortunately, based on a variety of circumstances — some of them completely outside the control of the police officers who detained him — Prude later died.  This makes Tuesday's announcement by the police chief that he and his entire command staff would resign at once baffling and unfortunate.  The move only reinforces the (false) perception that the police were culpable in Prude's death.

Black Lives Matter has terrorist and communist inspirations, but liberal media doesn't care.  Reporter Lara Logan made an important point Tuesday morning [9/8/2020] on Fox & Friends First, saying it's long past time to expose the "powerful political entities" behind antifa and other violent-protest activists.  The establishment media have largely ignored the radical, communist, and even domestic terrorist roots of antifa, Black Lives Matter, and some of the other violent protesters.  While the Washington Examiner's Jerry Dunleavy has done yeoman's work in reporting on the Leninist-terrorist roots of BLM's lead organizers, the nation's big dailies have mentioned only in passing the movement's backgrounds and financing.  This lack of attention to, much less angst and anger about, protests causing hundreds of millions of dollars of property damage (not to mention injuries, hospital stays, and even deaths) stands in stark contrast to how so many news organizations had conniption fits trying to assign nefarious designs and secret Koch brothers funding to the entirely peaceful Tea Party movement a decade ago.  The evident hypocrisy is major journalistic malpractice.

American Airlines Allows Flight Attendants to Wear BLM Pins; White Employee Backlash Ensues.  Have you had enough of Black Lives Matter, Inc. "wokeness" shoved down your throat?  Of course you have.  Unfortunately, there's more.  The nation's largest airline is facing a backlash over its decision to allow flight attendants to wear BLM, Inc. pins on the job.  But the backlash is not from passengers, but rather a white flight attendants and staffers.  As reported by the New York Post, top brass at American Airlines is facing turbulence from White employees who have spouses or other relatives who are law enforcement officers, because they (correctly) believe the BLM, Inc. movement is anti-police and promotes violence.

Conservative Clergy of Color Coalition Preaches Against 'Anti-American' Black Lives Matter.  Four black pastors have formed a coalition to vigorously push back against the false and destructive narratives of the "vicious mob of malcontents" known as the Black Lives Matter movement.  Their message is resonating nationwide.  The 500+ strong Conservative Clergy of Color (CCC) is led by founding members Bishop Aubrey Shines of Tampa; the Rev. Derek McCoy of Beltsville; Maryland, pastor Francisco Vega of Atlanta; and the Rev. M.J. Reid of Detroit.  On the CCC website, the leaders accuse the racial justice movement of pretending to be about equality, while in reality being about "domination and divisiveness."

WHEC Reporter Chased By Knife-Wielding BLM Mob — Station Ignores Attack And Describes 'Protests' As 'Peaceful'.  WHEC reporter Charles Molineaux was attacked and chased by a knife-wielding Black Lives Matter mob during "protests" on Sunday night in Rochester and yet his own news station ignored the incident and described the night's "protests" as "peaceful" on their front page.  Video shows Molineaux and his security guard getting attacked and called "Nazis" after apparently getting accused of being undercover cops.  An African-American man with a knife is seen running at them and threatening to stab them repeatedly, only backing down when Molineaux's security guard turns around to defend him with an expandable baton.  UPDATE:  The video was just deleted!

Rochester Mayor Enlists Church Elders To Serve As Human Shields For Black Lives Matter 'Protesters'.  Rochester Mayor Lovely Warren apparently saw the videos of Black Lives Matter mobs attacking diners at a local restaurant on Friday and rioting in the streets and figured the proper response is to give the rioters human shields to protect them from police. [...] "Our elders will stand as the buffer between the protesters and our police department," Warren said Sunday [9/6/2020] after a "community meeting" between "protesters" and police.

The Mayors Whose Names You Don't Know.  [Scroll down]  Take, for example, Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan.  For more than 80 days, Black Lives Matter protesters and Detroit police observed a tense but durable truce, and the conditions for preserving the peace were simple.  As long as the movement was moving — literally, maintaining forward motion — there would be no interference with the protests from law enforcement.  That peace was shattered in the final week of August when demonstrators turned violent and attempted to "occupy" a downtown street.  "I am not going to let any group set up a Seattle zone of lawlessness here in the city of Detroit," said Detroit Police Chief James Craig during a news conference.  "That is non-negotiable."  That day, riot gear-clad police swarmed the section of the city in which demonstrators had gathered, arresting at least 44 protesters, confiscating weapons and body armor, and charging many of them with a variety of misdemeanor offenses.  As of this writing, Mayor Dugan continues to sleep well in his home, free from the fear of forcible ejection by a violent mob.

Fanning the Flames.  For months, Biden and his media allies have abetted #BlackLivesMatter activists in inciting racial fear and hatred, claiming that "systemic racism" by police accounts for the deaths of black suspects at the hands of police.  Even though research clearly disproves such claims, the facts haven't stopped Democrats from trying to exploit this slanderous narrative in their effort to defeat President Trump.  Last week, after a self-declared "100% Antifa" radical murdered a Trump supporter in Portland, Oregon, Biden doubled-down on this anti-police rhetoric, blaming "bad cops" for "racial injustice in America," while bizarrely accusing Trump of "stoking violence in our cities."  Contrary to Biden's claims, however, the "violence in our cities" — mobs rioting in Portland and Seattle, looting in Chicago and New York, and attacking police everywhere — clearly has been fomented by anti-Trump activists, including the "trained Marxist" leaders of #BlackLivesMatter.

Spoiled White Portland Protesters Harass Black Woman In SUV In The Name Of Racial Justice.  The brave and stunning Portland protesters were back out on the streets late Sunday night, marching through the traditionally black part of town, where they proudly surrounded a black woman in an SUV trying to get through.  These heroic white saviors spent the better part of two minutes shouting obscenities at her, refusing to let her through, ordering her to back up and go the other way, and possibly even used a racist slur.  "Move, get out of the way," she asks of the protesters.  One screeching brat can be heard shrieking repeatedly in the background [...]

BLM 'activists' throw bottles, steal property from Trump supporters during Brandon Straka's WalkAway event.  Leftists often demand that their voices be heard without their protests being stifled by, well, anyone.  They don't want counter-protesters, law enforcement, or the press getting in their way when they want to get a message out.  But the same cannot be said about how they handle protests and rallies from the right, as Brandon Straka and the #WalkAway movement learned Saturday [9/5/2020] in Dallas.  Throughout the peaceful rally in support of President Trump, the #WalkAway rally was interrupted as Black Lives Matter activists harassed those at the event.  At one point, a security guard for #WalkAway had to forcibly remove a counter-protester.  But police ended up arresting the security guard instead of the violent protester.

Unions pledge walkoffs, job actions to support 'Black Lives Matter' before election.  Unions representing millions of workers, from teachers to truck drivers, pledged to ramp up protests in the leadup to the presidential election, with walkouts aimed at forcing local and federal lawmakers to pass police reform and address what they described as systemic racism.  In a statement first shared with The Associated Press on Saturday [9/5/2020], labor leaders from America's biggest public and private sector unions said they would organize walkouts for teachers, autoworkers, truck drivers and clerical staff, among others.

Black man "livid" after BLM rioters torch his business despite "black owned" sign.  Jesse Barksdale, the owner of JRibs on State Street in Rochester, New York, is "livid" about the destruction of his business at the hands of Black Lives Matter rioters early Sunday morning [9/6/2020].  Barksdale himself is black, and had a sign posted outside his business that read, "Proud to be Black Owned."

The Editor says...
One might easily surmise that Mr. Barksdale would have been happy to see all the businesses around his destroyed, but his preserved, thanks to his sign.  What's the difference betweeen that and racism?

Want More Racism?  Black Lives Matter Is How You Get More Racism.  Rather than improve race relations, the Black Lives Matter movement has set them back a half-century.  Nothing good will come of the bullying, violence and baseless accusations that are filling the news cycle. [...] Just a few days ago, a violent, screaming mob rampaged through a Rochester, New York, restaurant, threatening patrons, turning over tables, and destroying property.  Before the night was over, two police officers were hurt and eight "demonstrators" had been arrested.  Less than two weeks earlier, another riotous horde, which like the Rochester gang included white faces, demanded restaurant customers in Washington, D.C., raise their fist in solidarity with BLM.  It was an ugly confrontation.  Anyone who had the courage to stand up to the physical and mental abuse was branded a white supremacist.  There are instances less violent but just as disturbing of people apparently being forced to admit they're racists even if they aren't.

American Airlines policy allowing BLM pins faces backlash from workers.  Top brass at the nation's largest commercial jet carrier is facing turbulence from within after it announced that flight attendants are now allowed to wear Black Lives Matter pins on their uniforms while on duty.  The move has irked some of American's white New York staffers, including those who have spouses or relatives who are cops — because they consider the BLM movement divisive and anti-police, saying it promotes or condones violence.  "I take offense to this," one veteran flight attendant said in an email to airline management obtained by The [New York] Post.  "Serious offense.  My husband is a LEO (Law Enforcement Officer), as was my deceased father and as far as I'm concerned ALL LIVES MATTER."  "I am completely disgusted at the fact that we can't show support for our GOD, our COUNTRY, our LEOs but when it comes to BLM organization (which is controversial in itself), American Airlines says that's obviously different," she wrote.  "And we can.  How is that right?  Well, I don't feel included."

Data: 48 of America's 50 Largest Cities Hit By Black Lives Matter Riots.  New data from Princeton University show that riots associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took place in 48 out of the 50 largest cities in the United States. [...] Within the largest 100 cities by population, 74 experienced riots.  Several smaller communities have also experienced riots, including — most recently — Rochester, New York, and Kenosha, Wisconsin.

CBS Claims Riots in Rochester 'Largely Peaceful'.  As I reported on Friday night, thousands of BLM rioted in Rochester last night.  By one count, there were 5,500 people in the street.  But they upped their attacks a bit tonight [9/5/2020].  They not only smashed windows and set things on fire; they stormed into the restaurants demanding the businesses shut down, smashing dishes, overturning tables, threatening and intimidating diners, some of whom fled in terror in some very disturbing videos.  [Video clips]  The BLM are literally the fascists of whom they complain: intimidating people and bashing businesses like the Red Guard or the Brown Shirts.  BLM also attacked the police, throwing projectiles and fireworks at them.

Videos: BLM Attacks Conservative Group in Texas.  Black Lives Matter agitators attacked a conservative group at a Rescue America Rally in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday.  Tweeted videos show a man wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt as he allegedly breached backstage security to disrupt the rally.  He then appeared to assault a security guard for the conservative #WalkAway Movement.  A video tweeted by #WalkAway Movement founder Brandon Straka shows a man wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt and a woman wearing a Defund the Police shirt allegedly assaulting a security guard at the Rescue America Rally.

About 30 BLM Thugs Terrorize Gay Trump Supporter And #Walkaway Founder, Brandon Straka.  "This was the most terrifying moment of my life", Brandon Straka wrote on Twitter.  Walk Away Rescue America Rally had several speakers on the scene in Dallas, Texas — when Shemeka Michelle was speaking a small group of what appeared to be Black Lives Matter supporters in Black Bloc outfit interrupted her — leading to Rescue America security had to pacify some agitators.  [Video clip]

Dem unions planning strikes over social justice, just in time for the election.  Thus far there's no official announcement or projected date, but some of the staunchest allies of the Democrats are cooking up one of the most shamelessly political maneuvers I can ever recall seeing in an effort to squeak out a win in November.  With Joe Biden's poll number slipping in several critical states, a collection of labor unions have issued a letter calling for a general, national strike to obtain "racial justice" and to support the Black Lives Matter movement.  You don't need to look much further than the list of unions signing on to this scheme to see what's going on.  But the net effect, if they manage to pull this off, would be another gutshot to the economy just as we roll into the final couple of months before voters go to the polls.

The True Cost of Riots.  In a recent interview, BLM organizer Ariel Atkins argued that lootings are reparations for African Americans.  Atkins denounced the suggestion that anything can be gained from peaceful protests.  "Winning has come through revolts, Winning has come through riots," she said.  Unfortunately, the belligerence of people like Atkins has been nurtured by mainstream intellectuals, who originally downplayed the malevolent intentions of dangerous activists.  Therefore, as adults, we have no alternative but to remind these youngsters that sparking riots is an ineffective strategy to advance the cause of African Americans.

BLM Destroys Store Owned By BLM Supporter.  This woman, who happens to be a part-time Black Lives Matter protester was given some karma so many others in America have experienced when the Circle K was looted and vandalized by her co-conspirators.  [Video clip]

Black Lives Matter protesters riot in Manhattan, cause $100,000 damage:  NYPD.  Eight people were arrested Friday night when a group of 150 Black Lives Matter protesters smashed windows and graffitied the storefronts of Lower Manhattan chain stores and banks, police sources said.  At least two Starbucks, five banks and a Duane Reade had their windows busted, causing an estimated $100,000 in damage.  Police recovered two stun guns, smoke grenades, and burglary and graffiti tools.  The protest had been advertised on Twitter by groups calling themselves the "New Afrikan Black Panther Party" and the "Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement."  One of the arrested protesters was from Portland, Ore., and another was from Iowa, the sources said.

BLM Rioters Set Fire To Bus Stop In Rochdale.  A bus stop was set on fire by BLM rioters in Rochdale New York last night.  Another mostly peaceful but fiery night of protests.  [Video clip]

BLM Monsters Crash Restaurant in Rochester, Totally Destroy The Place While Terrified Customers Flee.  BLM punks invaded "white spaces" by swarming a restaurant, throwing chairs and knocking over tables for the Black Lives Matter movement during a riot against police brutality in Rochester, New York on Friday, Sep 4 2020. [...] One protester is heard saying, "We're shutting the party down!" as she orders white diners to leave the restaurant.  She also yells, "There's no need to run, nobody is going to touch you, calm down!" as glass is heard breaking and rioters swarm the area.  [Video clip]

Black Lives Matter activists shut down I-5 in Seattle, nine arrested.  A group of Black Lives Matter protesters who call themselves Morning March shut down half of the I-5 freeway into Seattle Friday morning [9/4/2020].  After lecturing people with a bullhorn for half an hour police arrived and arrested nine people.  At least one driver had to be dragged out of his vehicle.  All of this was captured on video because a reporter from The Stranger was in one of the cars that blocked traffic. [...] Ultimately, nine of the protesters were arrested and the rest were allowed to walk to an off-ramp.  The vehicles they were driving have all been impounded.  I wonder if all of the charges against the group will be dropped immediately.  No one should ever be allowed to hold a gathering on a busy freeway, creating an inconvenience for thousands of people, but those rules don't seem to apply to BLM protesters.

Terrorism In Rochester NY: BLM Mob Storms Suburbs, Climb Into Roofs Of Random Homes.  Thousands of BLM rioters took to the street of Rochester Friday.  Things started out somewhat quietly, as the media would say, mostly peaceful, but like with every BLM gathering, the Gremlins come out at night.  BLM rioters got violent in the evening, mobbing a restaurant, turning over tables and here you can see them climbing on a random roof of a home while the mob cheers below.  The police were nowhere to be found.  [Video clip]

[Black] Rioters In Rochester NY Assault A [White] Cyclist For Daring To Ride Through Their Mob.  Amid Black Lives Matter protests on Times Square for Daniel Prude, violent attacks broke out in Rochester, NY involving both attacks on local citizens and cops present.  Police had to open fire using crowd control munition.  Parts of the attacks looked had signatures of Antifa.  Rochester is the city of Police shooting victim Daniel Prude.  [Video clip]

Car Drives Through BLM Mob In NYC After They Surround and Start To Assault It.  A video shared on social media shows a car in Time Square at a crosswalk.  As BLM agitators cross, they turn their attention towards the car, surround it and someone in the front starts to assault it.  The driver at this point obviously feels in danger since, unless you live under a rock, knows this just goes one way and that's to violence, floors it and speeds through the mob.  [Video clip]

Political activist Christian Walker says Black Lives Matter movement is 'a domestic terrorist organization'.  A Republican political activist has called out the Black Lives Matter movement while suggesting it's a "terrorist organization."  During a recent interview, Christian Walker said, "anybody who honestly cares about black people can not support Black Lives Matter."  Walker, who is the son of former football star and 2020 RNC speaker Herschel Walker, said he believes President Trump treats every American the same unlike his Democrat opponents who instead encourage violence and looting.

The Attempt to Overthrow America.  [Scroll down]  In addition, the Marxist movement Black Lives Matter (BLM), which seemed to have disappeared since the election of President Donald J. Trump — who, incidentally, did more for the black and Hispanic minority communities in three years than anyone had done for decades — suddenly reappeared, well-funded and well-organized, at the heart of the riots.  BLM received further support from the mayors of several major cities and gained even more popularity while attacking first the statues of former slave-owners, such as George Washington, and then those of the escaped slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass.  In Washington, DC and New York City, "Black Lives Matter" was painted on avenues in huge yellow letters — in New York by the mayor himself.  This may have been the first time in US history that a Marxist movement received corporate support:  Amazon, Microsoft, Nabisco, Gatorade, Deckers and other large American firms donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, now a major beneficiary of US corporate largesse.  Many colleges and universities also joined in backing the movement.

Black Democrat Unloads Over Violent Riots:  We're 'Too Frightened To Stand Up And Protect Our Own Stuff'.  Tennessee State Rep. John DeBerry, a longtime Democrat who has represented Memphis for 26 years, unloaded on violent rioters who are burning cities down across the U.S. and also took a shot at people who are "too frightened to stand up and protect our own stuff."  DeBerry told Fox News that he's "appalled" when people try to compare Black Lives Matter to the civil rights movement, saying "there is absolutely no comparison."

Facts emerging on Jacob Blake shooting contradict the narrative that sparked riots.  It is stunning how many recent riots over purported racial injustice have been based on phony stories.  Ferguson, Missouri was pillaged and burned over the false contention that Michael Brown was gunned down with his hands up (the Obama Justice Department confirmed that he was struggling to kill the police officer arresting him for a strongarm robbery he had just committed by grabbing his gun when he was fatally shot).  Baltimore was sacked over the contention that Freddie Gray was assassinated by police officers deliberately tossing him around in a police van (a jury acquitted the officers).  Just this past week, rioters looted downtown Minneapolis on the false story that police had gunned down a suspect who had, in fact, committed suicide.  Which was captured on surveillance video.  Yet, Target, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom were still looted.

Black Lives Matter protest in NJ results in $2,500 police OT bill for organizer, 18.  A young New Jersey woman has been slapped with a $2,500 fine for police overtime costs after she set up a "small, peaceful Black Lives Matter protest" at the end of July, according to a report.  Emily Gil, 18, who graduated in June from Bergen County Technical School, failed to properly warn authorities in advance about the event, reported.  Gil believed that a shortage of affordable housing options in her neighborhood was a racial issue that should be brought to the public's attention through a 30- to 40-person protest, according to

Rand Paul confronted by Black Lives Matter protesters after RNC.  Rand Paul was confronted by a rowdy group of Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington, DC, early Friday after leaving the White House for the Republican National Convention.  Paul was walking to the Hotel Washington with his wife when a crowd descended upon him while shouting "Say Her Name" and "Breonna Taylor."  The senator from Kentucky — where Taylor was fatally shot and killed by police — was being escorted by D.C.'s Metropolitan Police.  In one of the videos, a protester pushes a Metro DC police officer who trips and brushes into Paul.  The officer briefly stumbles and regains his footing.  [Video clip]

BLM in D.C. Assault People in Streets, Accost People Leaving Republican Convention Including Vernon Jones, Brian Mast.  President Donald Trump gave his final acceptance speech of the RNC acceptance at the White House on Thursday evening with many people in attendance on the lawn.  But outside the White House, the BLM mob was gathering.  The BLM had hoped to be so loud that that they might drown out the event.  They failed at that which made them incredibly frustrated as one can see in this picture.  [Numerous photos and video clips]

D.C. Black Lives Matter Protesters Adopt Strategy of Intimidating Random White People.  Two years ago, there was a debate about whether restaurants were morally justified in asking Trump administration officials to leave their establishments.  It's a distressing sign of the times that such an act of public confrontation looks positively tame compared with what D.C. BLM activists did yesterday.  A movement that deploys large crowds to confront, intimidate, and provoke random small businesses and their customers will quickly and rightly find itself demonized by the public.

It can happen here.  In fact, it is happening here.  The authoritarian left isn't content just to block speech it disagrees with.  It also wants to force people into making leftist utterances and gestures.  Today [8/25/2020], at various restaurants in Washington, D.C, BLM protesters demanded that diners eating outdoors raise their fists in support.  Most diners did — this is Washington — but a few did not.  Those who did not were berated.  The mob chanted "white silence is violence" at them.  The statement is stupid and obviously false.  If the BLM mob wants, nonetheless, to chant it, that's fine.  But not in the faces of people who are simply trying to eat dinner.

BLM Accosts White Diners in DC.  [Thread reader]  In a scene that played out several times Monday [8/24/2020], a Black Lives Matter protest that began in Columbia Heights confronted White diners outside D.C. restaurants, chanting "White silence is violence!" and demanding White diners show their solidarity.  In Adams Morgan, protesters screamed at Lauren B. Victor for several minutes for refusing to raise her fist with them.  "Are you a Christian?" a female protester demanded.  "Good for you — you stood your ground," Chuck Modiano said sarcastically as the crowd moved on.  Modiano, who had been yelling at Victor and moments later identified himself as a citizen journalist who writes for Deadspin, told Victor he couldn't understand why she was the only diner in the area who wouldn't comply.  "What was in you, you couldn't do this?"  "I felt I was under attack," Victor, an urban planner, said, adding that she felt there was something wrong about being coerced to show support.

BLM Agitators Terrorize Man Just Trying To Get Gas In Lafayette.  Tense moments this afternoon [8/25/2020] after the driver of a truck pushes through a group of BLM agitators blocking access the gas station where a Lafayette man was shot by police last week.  The crowd is seen standing in front of the pickup truck, then locking arms, but as the vehicle inches forward, the crowd is forced to let it through.  The driver is then harassed for daring to fill his tank.  [Video clip]

Black Lives Matter Admits During Chanting They Are There To Protect Black Criminals.  These BLM protesters, if anything, are finally being open and honest to their mission.  While destroying the city of Kenosha Wisconsin, BLM rioters chanted, 'What are we here for?  To protect black criminals', which later morphed to 'What are we here for?  To protect black prostitutes'.  [Video clip]

Twenty (Uncomfortable) Questions.  [#6] Why is black-on-black crime so high?  Why does almost every "protest" end in looting and arson?  Why would you loot a 99 Cent Store?  Note to Black Lives Matter:  the art of negotiation is to threaten first, burn and loot second.  Just a friendly suggestion.

Burgess Owens Says 'BLM Inc.  Is Nothing But A Marxist Organization'.  Former NFL star and GOP House candidate Burgess Owens called Black Lives Matter (BLM) a "Marxist organization" during a Thursday night appearance on Fox News' "The Story."  Anchor Martha MacCallum asked Owens, who recently won a GOP House primary in Utah, to react to a video of Chicago BLM organizer Ariel Atkins condoning looting as "reparations."  "We are at a very clear crossroads in our country," Owens said.  "We have one vision that says we the people are empowered by education and we will give that power to the people and the other side is they want to empower themselves by stealing our education, stealing our history," he continued.  "Which should not be a surprise, and for those who can go to Google, you'll find out that BLM inc. is nothing but a Marxist organization."

ANTIFA and BLM Rioters Try to Storm the ICE Building in Portland.  It's starting to look like a war-zone in Portland... wait it already was.  Once again rioters have nothing else to do besides terrorize the city of Portland in the name of Social Justice.  This time the rioters assembled outside the ICE building where there were met by federal agents.  [Video clip]

Conformity to a Lie.  The lethal arrest of George Floyd in Minneapolis in late May triggered widespread riots and a torrent of contempt for America from virtually every institution in the country.  Businesses large and small, the education establishment, and the press rushed to condemn the country's purportedly endemic racism, implicitly accusing the majority of Americans of destroying "black lives."  Banks and law firms pledged that hiring and promotions would now be even more race-conscious than before.  Hundreds of millions of dollars poured forth from corporate coffers into activist groups; the corporate benefactors hoped to dismantle America's white supremacy, they announced.

BLM protesters gather outside NYPD union boss Pat Lynch's home.  Dozens of Black Lives Matter protesters gathered outside New York City Police Benevolent Association president Pat Lynch's Queens home Wednesday night — following the union's endorsement last week of President Trump in November's election.  The demonstration was met by a swarm of NYPD officers, who set up barricades blocking off Lynch's quiet, tree-lined street in Bayside, video posted on Twitter shows.  At least two dozen officers and supervisors looked on as a speaker slammed Lynch through a megaphone during the hour-long protest.

Portland protester with long rap sheet who is on the run from cops.  A Black Lives Matter protester on the run from cops after being 'positively identified' as the man who kicked a truck driver in the face in Portland on Sunday is begging for cash.  Police are searching for Marquise 'Keese' Love, 25, after he fled the scene of a brutal attack on Adam Haner, who was knocked unconscious and suffered two black eyes in the vicious beating.  Haner was identified as the victim in a GoFundMe campaign, which claimed he was trying to defend a transgender woman from being robbed before he was set upon by protesters.  Since fleeing the scene, Love has been posting messages on Snapchat, according to The Sun.

Democrats stay silent on violence in their cities.  The timing could not have been more inconvenient for Democrats.  The day before they eulogized the Black Lives Matter movement and elevated it to the centerpiece of their national convention, a white man was dragged out of his pickup truck by BLM protesters, kicked in the head and beaten almost to death.  Even more inconvenient was the fact that the victim, laborer Adam Haner, had been trying to stop these "mostly peaceful" social-justice warriors from attacking a transgender woman at the time.  You couldn't make it up.  The sickening hate crimes we are seeing in Democratic-run cities in the name of BLM over the past 12 weeks are occurring with the tacit encouragement of Democratic mayors, governors and district attorneys.  This is the dirty secret Democrats are trying to sweep under the carpet until the election, with the help of their media allies.

Six BLM protesters are arrested for tearing down and defacing George Washingtonstatue at LA City Hall.  Six protesters have been arrested after a George Washington statue in Los Angeles was defaced and torn down during protests last week.  Footage of the incident showed the life-size figure of America's first president with red bands around its neck as a group tried to pull it to the ground.  The group are said to have changed clothes in an attempt to avoid detection moments after the statue was toppled in Grand Park on Thursday [8/13/2020].  Protesters have been tearing down statues across the country as part of anti-racism demonstrations fueled by George Floyd's death in Minneapolis in May.  Washington, the first US president, owned hundreds of African-descended slaves.  He also had a torturous relationship with Native Americans and a lifelong pursuit of their land.

BLM mob beats white man unconscious after making him crash truck: video.  A mob of Portland Black Lives Matter protesters forced a white man to crash his truck, then punched and kicked him unconscious, disturbing footage shows.  A series of clips on social media shows the victim being surrounded in his white Ford truck at 10.30 p.m.  Sunday as others attacked a woman he was with, who was punched and even tackled to the ground during the violent melee.  "He didn't do nothing!" someone could be heard calling as others punched the driver as he sat in his truck, which was also repeatedly kicked.  The unidentified driver eventually sped off, with the mob chasing him — with some heard loudly laughing when he crashed into a tree and then a building, according to the clips.  [Video clip]

BLM and Right-Wing Militias in Tense Standoff Near Stone Mountain Monument.  Two armed groups on opposing sides of the ideological divide squared off at Stone Mountain, Ga., on Saturday as right-wing militias and their allies stood face to face with Black Lives Matter and other left-wing radicals who had come to oppose them.

Dem hopeful endorsed by Ilhan Omar, Tim Walz joins BLM protest at police union leader's home.  A Minnesota House candidate endorsed by Gov. Tim Walz and Rep. Ilhan Omar was captured screaming profanities at a Black Lives Matter protest outside of the home of Minneapolis police union President Bob Kroll on Saturday [8/15/2020].  John Thompson, who last week won his primary for House District 67A in St.  Paul, later apologized for his "inflammatory rhetoric" after he was seen in two videos wearing a "Bob KKKroll Must Go!" T-shirt and delivering a profane rant about White people as more than 100 people gathered outside Mr. Kroll's home in Hugo, the Star Tribune reported.  "You all got the grand wizard living in your [expletive] neighborhood!" Mr. Thompson yelled in one video.  "Don't run now, racist White people!"

'Social Justice' Is Extortion.  [Scroll down]  Out in our streets, people claiming to support Black Lives Matter, a self-declared Marxist organization that aims at getting rid of the two-parent family and all police:  "We know that police don't keep us safe — and as long as we continue to pump money into our corrupt criminal justice system at the expense of housing, health, and education investments — we will never be truly safe."  Black Lives Matter requires that white people physically bend a knee for them, or else.  The "else" turns out to be widespread looting of commercial enterprises; arson of private and public buildings, and of police and personal cars; assaults on police and anyone who attempts to stop criminality; and if they get too irritated, murder.  Looting has been justified by a Black Lives Matter official as "reparations now."

Is this the leftist tactic that will drive suburban moms to Trump?  On March 2, a Black Lives Matter mob descended on the home of Jackie Lacey, Los Angeles's first black district attorney.  Her husband, David, met the mob on his porch with a gun and told them to back off.  California's hard-left Democrat Attorney General Xavier Becerra didn't indict the trespassers; he filed misdemeanor charges against Lacey.  Almost three months later, on June 28, in St. Louis, Mark and Patricia McCloskey were filmed outside their home wielding guns after hundreds of Black Lives Matter protesters broke down the fence to their gated community and marched onto their property.  Significantly, a Soros-funded, Democrat prosecutor didn't indict the trespassers; she indicted the McCloskeys. [...] [N]ow, the mob had done its A-B testing.  It had learned that MAGA neighborhoods are dangerous because people defend themselves, but Democrat-leaning suburbs are perfect for intimidation because the residents are meek and the politicians supportive.  On Saturday [8/15/2020], therefore, there were four reports about BLM and Antifa making terrifying raids on suburban communities.

California Black Lives Matter Leader Charged With Five Felonies, Faces 15 Years In Prison.  Black Lives Matter leader Tianna Arata was arrested last month by the San Luis Obispo Police Department (SLOPD) after a protest she organized turned violent.  The 20-year-old California-based activist organized a demonstration involving more than 300 people who blocked a highway and attacked a vehicle with a 4-year-old child inside.  According to police, Tianna Arata assured the SLOPD ahead of the rally that it would be a peaceful protest.  It wasn't.

The Tides Foundation and BLM.  The 501(c)(3) tax exempt Thousand Currents and ActBlue Charities are supporting Black Lives Matter (BLM) Global Network, which is campaigning openly against President Trump on its website and also in other venues.  BLM leader Patrisse Cullors said openly in a CNN interview, "Trump not only needs to not be in office in November but he should resign now.  Trump needs to be out of office.  He is not fit for office."  "...we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out... Our goal is to get Trump out."  501(c)(3) resources cannot be used legally to influence an election.  A response to the tweet with the Cullors interview says, "Thanks, sending this tweet to the IRS so they can see BLM's 501(c)(3) status should be removed."  (BLM itself is not tax exempt, but Thousand Currents and ActBlue Charities are.)  Another person posted a screen shot of IRS rules, while another added, "So they want tax exempt status, but they are going to pull this?" People can act on this information via Form 13909.

Zimmerman Suit Spells Trouble for Black Lives Matter.  BLM was launched in 2013 "in response to" Zimmerman's acquittal in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin a year earlier.  In predicting that "Trayvon Martin will forever remain in the annals of history next to Medgar Evers and Emmett Till, as symbols for the fight for equal justice for all," Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump captured the confused mood of much of black America.  Emmett Till, a 14-year-old Chicago boy, was brutally lynched for allegedly flirting with a white woman in 1955 Mississippi.  The courageous civil rights leader Medgar Evers took a bullet in the back from a racist assassin in 1963 Mississippi.  The wayward Trayvon Martin took a bullet to the chest while bashing in the head of a Hispanic man and civil rights activist he had gratuitously attacked in a multi-ethnic Florida community.

Black Lives Matter holds rally in Chicago to support those arrested after looting, unrest.  Black Lives Matter members in Chicago held a rally on Monday to support the more than 100 arrested last night following widespread looting and rioting that caused at least $60 million in property damage and saw 13 police officers injured, according to a report.  The rally was organized by Black Lives Matter Chicago and was held at a police station in the South Loop where organizers say individuals are currently being held in custody.  At least one organizer called the looting tantamount to "reparations."  "I don't care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy's or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats," said Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, according to NBC Chicago.  "That makes sure that person has clothes."

'Black Lives Matter' Is Not Helping Blacks.  The evidence is clear:  Police brutality is simply not the biggest issue facing blacks in America, yet this is all that 'Black Lives Matter' activists seem to care about.  Black lives do matter — and they deserve the truth about the REAL issues facing black Americans.  What are these issues, and how can they be solved?  [Video clip]

On Maryland's Eastern Shore, a county school superintendent is under fire for supporting Black Lives Matter.  An email message that Andrea Kane, the superintendent of schools in Queen Anne's County, sent to parents at the end of the 2019-2020 school year started out unremarkably, listing achievements for the year and the dates of coming events.  Then it pivoted into less familiar terrain, at least on Maryland's largely conservative Eastern Shore.  Kane called for more and better dialogue on racism in the county and voiced support for Black Lives Matter.  Those calls have left Kane, the county's first Black superintendent, embroiled in controversy and fighting for her job.

Officer statue in Eagan vandalized with anti-police graffiti.  Authorities are looking for whoever vandalized an officer statue in Eagan [Minnesota] with anti-police graffiti.  The vandalism Tuesday night [8/4/2020] targeted the life-size statue depicting an officer shielding a little girl.  It is among several bronze figures similarly vandalized in the Eagan Tribute and Memorial Plaza that also honor firefighters and military service members.  Police had planned to have a community conversation "to hear citizens' concerns surrounding policing," the department said in a statement, which also included a photo of the officer statue with a profane word written above "BLM" across his chest.

BLM Thug In Austin Threatens Restaurant Patrons Laughing At Him And His Stupid Bullhorn.  Looks like someone needs a father figure but isn't getting one in this Austin restaurant.  BLM protesters made total fools of themselves as they fought amongst themselves turning their ire on each other at times this weekend.

Black Lives Matter activist 'kicked off American Airlines flight for wearing offensive mask.  A FLORIDA woman was reportedly forced to leave an American Airlines flight for wearing an "offensive" mask that read "F--- 12."  Wearing a T-shirt that said "Black Lives Matter" and the mask, Arlinda Johns was asked to leave the plane after boarding to fly to Illinois last week.

Black Lives Matter's Symbiosis with White Supremacists.  George Orwell showed in Nineteen Eighty-Four and Animal Farm that totalitarians and "movements" usually need a real or even an imaginary enemy against which to rally their followers, lest their leaders otherwise become irrelevant. [...] The leaders of Antifa and the BLM movement would similarly be relative nobodies were it not for swastika-waving white supremacists chanting, "You will not replace us" and engaging in violence on their own behalf.  The famous educator Booker T. Washington said of this, "There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public.  Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays.  Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."  White supremacist demagogues manipulate their Caucasian followers similarly, and it is past time for the country to tell both groups that we want none of what they are selling.

Woman arrested for defacing Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower.  The Black Lives Matter mural outside of Trump Tower has been defaced yet again — just days after it was cleaned from a previous act of vandalism. [...] The mural has been vandalized nearly every week since it was installed on Thursday, July 9.

The rules apply to you, not to him.
De Blasio admits city skipped permit process to paint Black Lives Matter murals.  City officials ignored their own application process for public art projects to paint Black Lives Matter murals around the five boroughs, in order to mark an important moment in history, Mayor Bill de Blasio said as his administration faces claims of First Amendment violations for refusing to green-light other proposals.  "We haven't said 'no' to people, we've said, 'If you want to apply, you can apply, but there's a process,'" de Blasio said during his City Hall press briefing Monday [8/3/2020].  The pro-President Trump group Women for America First has sued City Hall for blocking a mural of their slogan "Engaging, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Make a Difference!" on a Manhattan roadway, while allowing multiple BLM paintings throughout the city.

Hundreds of BLM supporters storm Snohomish County neighborhood to protest at Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best's home.  Roughly 40 vehicles lined the road of a small, quiet, and quaint residential community in unincorporated Snohomish County to protest at the private residence of Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best.  According to the Snohomish County Sheriff's Office, this is the first occurrence of protestors targeting an official in the county.  The incident took place at 6:50 p.m. on Saturday, August 1.  Firsthand witnesses told the Lynnwood Times that a neighbor tipped off residents to dozens of vehicles traversing the street of the private residence of Best.  Neighbors aware of Best's physical home location, established a perimeter to protect her home from possible mischief.  Best was not home at the time of the incident.

BLM organizer knocks off veteran Democrat in House primary.  Black Lives Matter organizer Cori Bush defeated Rep. William Lacy Clay in Missouri's Democratic primary Tuesday night, halting a St. Louis political dynasty.  Jason Rosenbaum, a political correspondent for St. Louis Public Radio, called Bush's victory "one of the most significant moments in the history of St. Louis politics.  It is enormous."  Clay has served in the House of Representatives since 2001, succeeding his father, who had held the seat since 1969. Bush, 44, had challenged Clay, 64, in 2018 but lost by 20 points.

Megyn Kelly Lays Out What the BLM Is All About, And She's Not Shy About It.  The Washington Examiner's Byron York made an observation on how much the far left has moved the needle in just a few years.  That when Colin Kaepernick started his far left protest in the NFL against America by kneeling, he got a lot of deserved backlash and only one person knelt with him at the time.  Now, as York observed, all the players but for one knelt in the NBA.  Now, the person who stands suddenly is required to explain himself, as though standing for the national anthem is now somehow objectionable.

De Blasio:  Painting BLM Murals My Decision That 'Transcends All Normal Realities' — Anyone Else Who Wants Mural Has to Apply.  During a press conference on Monday [8/3/2020], New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) stated that painting Black Lives Matter street murals was a "decision I made" and that the decision on the murals "transcends all normal realities."  But that others who want to paint murals must apply, and "the normal process continues for anyone who wants to apply."

Louisville, KY: Cuban Community Rallies In Support Of Cuban Restaurant After BLM Issues "List of Demands".  A rather alarming situation is developing in Louisville, Kentucky, in which local businesses are allegedly being issued demands from Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists and told that if they don't meet the demands, their business might be "f----d with."  The demands are onerous, invasive, and ludicrous.  They include everything from hiring quotas to training mandates to displaying a letter supporting reparations for black people to — perhaps most outrageous of all — paying a "recurring monthly donation of 1.5% of net sales to a local Black nonprofit or organization."  While some area businesses have reportedly caved to the bullying demands, Fernando Martinez, a partner in a restaurant group, referred to the demands and alleged threats if he failed to comply as "mafia tactics."

Profs say Black Lives Matter is a 'spiritual movement'.  Melina Abdullah, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter in Los Angeles and professor of Pan-African Studies at California State University-Los Angeles, and Hebah Ferrag, assistant director of research at the University of Southern California's Center for Religion and Civic Culture talked with KCRW-FM about Black Lives Matter as a spiritual organization in an interview with KCRW.  According to Abdullah, "there was always some component of spirituality" to Black Lives Matter.  She noted that on the first night that members of Black Lives Matter in Los Angeles gathered together, there was a "summoning of ancestors to space and the very palpable spiritual energy that circulated through the group."  Farrag said that the core beliefs around which Black Lives Matter centers around are "the inherent nature of human dignity, and the duty to fight against injustice, and oppression that threatens that inherent dignity."

Delusional BLM Supporters Harass Couple For Removing BLM Signs From Their Business.  Watch as these BLM instigators harass this couple for removing signs from their business.  The BLM supporter continuously questions them, trying to paint them as racists.  At one point the thug threatens to shut the business down.  [Video clip]

Details emerging about fatal shooting of BLM 'protester' in Austin, TX are stunning.  The leftist outrage machine treated the fatal shooting of BLM "protestor" Garrett Foster last Saturday night in Austin, Texas with the customary spin, compete with a touching picture from Facebook of the deceased with his fiancé. [...] But, as Paul Harvey used to say, "the rest of the story" is important.  Yesterday [7/30/2020], the shooter's legal counsel identified him and told his version of the tale.

Statistics Don't Lie, But Black Lives Matter Does.  Despite what the limousine liberal athletes of American professional sports leagues tell you, blacks value black lives far less than do whites.  Here's the evidence:  According to FBI data, in 2016:  In cases of multiple offenders and/or victims: 7,881 blacks were murdered and 6,095 of their murderers were black — the rate of black-on-black murder in that sample was 77 percent.  By comparison, 6,576 whites were murdered and 5,004 of their murderers were white — the rate of white-on-white murder in that sample was 76 percent.  In cases of single victim/single offender murder (these numbers are incorporated into the above, and are not a separate set of data):  2,870 blacks were murdered and of those 2,570 of the murderers were black while 243 were white.  Ninety percent of blacks murdered in single victim/single offender cases were killed by other blacks.

Nevada sheriff tells library vowing BLM support not to call 911: 'I wish you good luck with disturbances'.  The sheriff of a rural Nevada county has backtracked after initially telling the directors of a county library not to call 911 to report looting or violence at the facility if they came out publicly in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.  "To support this movement is to support violence and to openly ask for it to happen in Douglas County," Douglas County Sheriff Dan Coverley said in an open letter he sent to the Douglas County Public Library Board of Trustees earlier this week.  "Due to your support of Black Lives Matter and the obvious lack of support or trust with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, please do not feel the need to call 911 for help," he wrote in a letter posted Monday.

Chicago deputy chief dies by apparent suicide at facility targeted recently by BLM protesters.  Being a law enforcement officer has always been fraught with risk, as the next call a cop takes has the potential to be the last call.  But the danger doesn't stop there, as the stress of the job results in a high number of suicides within the profession.  With police under siege in America following the death of George Floyd, a top ranked member of the Chicago Police Department command staff has been found dead.

Portland Black Lives Matter protesters sue Trump administration over use of force on demonstrators.  Members of two organizations that led protests in Portland, Oregon, filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration for using force to disperse demonstrators over the past few weeks.  Black Lives Matter and Wall of Moms protesters filed the lawsuit on Monday [7/27/2020] against the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Federal Protective Service for using tear gas, rubber bullets, and other uses of force to clear protesters from the Mark O. Hatfield U.S. Courthouse.

Veteran Black Activist Exposes Key Issue Hidden By BLM.  While many well-meaning liberals and progressives support Black Lives Matter, few realize that the official group is dedicated to dismantling the institution than help blacks more than any other.  The avowed Marxist organization sees the family as the product of "Western imperialism" and wants to rid society of it, according to its official mission statement.  That doesn't sit well with Kevin McGary, the longtime chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation of California, named for the famed abolitionist.

Black Lives Matter mural outside Trump Tower defaced for fourth time in weeks as NYPD pays officers overtime to protect painting.  A Black Lives Matter mural painted outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan that has faced significant vandalism since it was unveiled earlier this month was defaced for the fourth time in weeks, according to police.  Mark David Hutt was charged with criminal mischief after officials said he threw white paint over a section of the mural on Sunday morning.  The suspect began using his hands to smear the paint across the mural shortly after 10 am, NYPD detective Carrie Reilly told CNN.  The Black Lives Matter mural — a project Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered after a similar painting was unveiled on the streets leading up to the White House — has become a controversial flashpoint on the city's iconic Fifth Avenue.

Massachusetts city council moves to censure, reprimand member for comments on Black Lives Matter, coronavirus.  A Massachusetts city council is moving to censure a member after he called Black Lives Matter a "terrorist organization" and said the coronavirus pandemic — which has killed more than 146,000 Americans and 8,000 Bay Staters — was "minuscule" and "overblown."  The North Adams City Council on Tuesday is bringing forward a resolution to censure Councilor Robert Moulton following his comments last week about Black Lives Matter, the coronavirus and other city issues.  "It seems like that's this month's flavor.  It's a terrorist organization," Moulton said of Black Lives Matter on the local public access television program "Let's Talk About It."  "They want to get rid of the family."  Moulton also called supporters of Black Lives Matter "moronic."

"Let's talk about it," they say.  And when you do talk about it, and you use forbidden words, you'll be castigated.  Criticism of BLM is rapidly becoming taboo, just as criticism of Islam is forbidden in some places.

Watch: BLM protesters in California detain pregnant woman on way to hospital.  After blocking traffic on Highway 101 in Central California, Black Lives Matters activists ignored the pleas of a motorist to take a pregnant woman in labor to a nearby hospital.  The BLM group, rather than allowing the distressed family pass through the blockade, wanted instead to "have a conversion" about race issues.  The following video, posted this week by Cal Coast News, shows protesters asking the occupants of the vehicle whether the woman's water broke or not.  [Video clip]

The miscreants who conducted the roadside interrogation of a random pregnant woman are the same people who support medical privacy laws when a Democrat is in the White House.

BLM Member Shot to Death, Apparently When 'Protesters' Surround Car.  The practice of stopping cars may have just finally resulted in a shooting death in Austin, Texas.  BLM protesters were marching there when it appeared they surround a car.  This video captures the moment where you can hear the shooting although what is happening is unclear.  Several shots are audible and then everyone scatters.  [Video clip] [...] The person tried to make a right turn into the street and appeared to have been swarmed by BLM people. [...] Whatever the facts here, the practice of stopping or surrounding cars has to stop.  Some drivers have been terrified and have driven off, hitting people.  We've seen where protesters have attacked people in the cars, even shot them.  We've seen where a protester has shot a driver in Colorado and we've seen where a driver hit people who were blocking a highway in the middle of the night.  If a driver knows that and/or is surrounded by an angry group, it's not going to end well.

One Dead After Shooting at Black Lives Matter Protest in Texas.  One person was killed after shots were fired Saturday night at a Black Lives Matter protest in Austin, Texas, local police said.  Dramatic footage uploaded to a Facebook Live feed showed the moment when shots split the night air in the Texas capital as some 100 protesters marched and chanted, "Fists up!  Fight back!"  [Video clip]  Austin police confirmed on their Twitter feed reports of a shooting just after 10 p.m. in the area of Congress and 4th Street in downtown.  Soon after they said they were starting homicide investigations.  Police did not immediately link the shooting with the events in the live stream.

George Soros Pumps Another Quarter Billion Dollars into Black Lives Matter.  Far-left billionaire George Soros has announced he is pumping another staggering amount of cash into the radical Black Lives Matter organization.  With America burning under the leftist push for socialism, Hungarian-born financier Soros announced he is donating another $220 million to the "Black Lives Matter movement."  Much of Soros' money is going into efforts to defund the police and control 2020 voting systems, his foundation revealed.

Black Portland Police Officer Shocked At Racist Things BLM Protestors Scream At Him.  In one black Portland police officer's frontline experience, the Black Lives Matter protests in his city are not about helping black people attain better lives.  What this officer sees is privileged white kids infiltrating communities that don't belong to them to burn stuff, break things, cause trouble, incite violence, and tell black people what they should do.  This officer, Jakhary Jackson, is a nine-year veteran of the Portland Bureau of Police.  After working for Nike for 10 years, Jackson joined law enforcement to "make the most out of my life by helping others."  Both sides of his family have long Portlandian roots.  Jackson works where he grew up, and his love for the people of his community is evident.

Beam Me Up, Please.  Every few years it seems that the Democrats gin up riots in response to the death of a black criminal at the hands of the police.  And each time the media play along.  I don't need to remind you of the Holder DoJ stirring up the Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown cases, which fell apart before juries when the facts were finally presented in open court.  Not before the false tales precipitated substantial destruction to lives and property — largely of those minorities living in the areas of these incidents.  This time, the race baiting has gone beyond targeting the individual citizens and cops involved to argue that there is systemic racism in law enforcement.  And the claim has been the rallying cry of the Black Lives Matter gangs.

Conservative women's group sues de Blasio for allowing BLM mural, but blocking theirs.  A conservative women's group sued Mayor de Blasio and the city Department of Transportation for allowing a Black Lives Matter mural to be painted in front of Trump Tower — but blocking them from doing a similar mural.  In the suit filed Thursday night [7/23/2020] in Manhattan federal court, Women for America First said they sent a letter to the mayor requesting permission to paint a mural of their slogan — "Engaging, Inspiring and Empowering Women to Make a Difference!" — on a roadway in Manhattan.  They said they never heard back from the mayor about their request.  The nonprofit, which is based in Virginia, said in their suit that they were led to believe that "there is no 'application process' for painting political messages, murals or other non-traffic-related messages on New York City streets."

BLM is not an equal rights movement.  If you criticize this political party you can be charged with a hate crime.  The political party is Black Lives Matter, and their messaging has been so effective that any lack of support is seen as hateful and racist.  But in American civic discourse, it is unacceptable for a political party to have the power to compel people to agree with it simply to secure their own safety.  The movement that began to bring attention to and to stop the unlawful killing of black people in America at the hands of police has since taken up additional causes that have far reaching implications into social and political life, and are outside the realm of police brutality altogether.  The murals that have sprung up in letters as big as life on streets across the country are not about a movement to engender safe interactions between black people and police, but are advertising for the BLM political party.

BLM Protesters Block Highway In Colorado, Some Men Go To Confront Them, Get Beaten.  Protesters blocked a section of Highway 24 in Teller County as part of a demonstration against the sheriff's office's policy to detain ICE inmates, and one small group of counter protesters got involved in a fight that's now under investigation.  The TCSO gave the community notice about the planned protest outside of the detention facility on Friday [7/17/2020], but at a certain point, a rally of cars moved toward Highway 24 and blocked a part of the road.  [Video clip]

Students won't accept professors who oppose Black Lives Matter.  As Black Lives Matter has grown in popularity at colleges and universities, and as multiple professors have been fired, disciplined, or boycotted for opposing the Black Lives Matter agenda, Campus Reform asked students if professors who oppose the group should be allowed to teach.  Most students said no.  "I wouldn't feel comfortable with a professor teaching that isn't for Black Lives Matter," one student said.  Other students even called for sanctioning or removing professors who oppose Black Lives Matter.

Red Sox Raise Large Black Lives Matter Sign at Fenway Park.  The Boston Red Sox made a very visible statement of anti-racism Wednesday as they put up a huge Black Lives Matter sign on an exterior wall of Fenway Park.  The sign, which says "Black Lives Matter" in large letters followed by the Sox' logo, faces the Massachusetts Turnpike and directs viewers to the Red Sox Foundation website for more information.  On the website is a statement on "Social Justice, Equity and Inclusion" from team President and CEO Sam Kennedy posted last month in the wake of the major protests over the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and others.

BLM Agitator Gets Instant Justice Outside Of Police Station.  This loudmouth harassing police at this station got a quick blast of pepper spray to his empty head.  It's like blasting a cockroach with Raid.  [Video clip]

BLM Speaker Says White Men Are The 'Common Enemy', We Must 'Get Rid Of Them, Kill The Rich'.  On Sunday [7/19/2020], in London, BLM marched Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens where this speaker gave a speech about, wait for it, SYSTEMATIC RACISM.  This speaker obviously didn't get the irony while speaking out against racism while at the same time being venomously racist himself.  [Video clip]

Woke Red Bull Execs Fired After Attempting to Force Company Into Black Lives Matter Virtue Signal.  Companies are routinely being pressured to show their support for Black Lives Matter.  Those who don't are under threat from the mob to be accused of being racist or in support of police brutality.  The idea that silence is violence has forced many a company executive to cave out of fear that they'll be personally held responsible by the mob and their entire life will be ruined.  Red Bull has taken the opposite tack.  In fact, it fired execs attempting to force the company into a BLM virtue signal.  According to the Wall Street Journal, Red Bull North American chief executive Stefan Kozak and North American president and chief of marketing Amy Taylor were both terminated from their positions after they attempted to force the company to support BLM by subversively creating racial tension within the company.

Photo Appears to Show Black Lives Matter Supporters Holding Down and Kneeling on Neck of White Baby.  A photograph of a [black] man kneeling on the neck of a white baby while another person holds the diapered child's arms is stirring up a massive amount of rage on social media.  The shocking and disturbing photograph, which was captioned by the abusers as "Blm now mf" is beginning to make the rounds after being uncovered by Vincent James of Red Elephants.

California City Chooses No Speech over MAGA Speech.  When faced with the choice of giving a Donald Trump supporter the exact same right to free expression as the left-wing terrorist group Black Lives Matter, Redwood City, California, chose to outlaw everyone's speech.  How revealing.  As Breitbart News reported Monday, Redwood City was so eager to allow one of its residents to paint a Black Lives Matter mural on city property, the city — and therefore the taxpayers — provided him with some of the materials.

City removes 'Black Lives Matter' street mural because of 'MAGA 2020' request.  Street graffiti for me, but not for thee.  That's what lawmakers in Redwood City, California basically told a Trump supporter who wanted to paint "MAGA 2020" on the same street where left-wing activists had painted a Black Lives Matter mural.  Last week, Redwood City (which is located on the San Francisco peninsula) washed away the "Black Lives Matter" mural after a local attorney — a Trump supporter — argued that since the street was now a public forum, she should be allowed to paint "MAGA 2020" on it.

Black Lives Matter reveals a generation of damaged straight, white women.  The Black Lives Matter movement and the subsequent riots by Antifa, the Democrat party's domestic terrorist arm, have shown Americans what leftism is — an ugly combination of social and government coercion, racism, violence, and anti-Americanism.  It's also revealed that the American left has been using American blacks as a vehicle for political power without any regard for actually improving black people's lives.  Instead, the left destroys their communities and doubles down on damaging policies.  What few have pointed out, though, is the way BLM protests have revealed the damage that decades of leftist messaging have visited on straight, young, white women.  To set the stage, here are some videos of the hysterical, young, white women who keep showing up in the front row of the Black Lives Matter movement, whether screaming at police, arguing with black people, rioting, or groveling:  [Video clips]

Gov Employees Can Use Black Lives Matter, Not Make America Great Again.  Can any slogan be more non-partisan than an explicitly racist appeal by Marxists that's accompanied by attacks on American history and the destruction of statues and monuments to the nation's founders, which has been embraced by the Democrat Party?  Just ask the Office of Special Counsel.  "As further described below, using BLM terminology is not inherently political activity and BLMGN is not currently a partisan political group."  Uh-huh.  A Marxist organization funded by leftists whose slogan has been embraced by Democrats is non-partisan.

Charles Jacobs Video:  Do Black Slaves' Lives Matter?  This new Glazov Gang episode features Dr. Charles Jacobs, the president of Americans for Peace and Tolerance.  Dr. Jacobs discusses Do Black Slaves' Lives Matter?, shedding a disturbing light on:  When did the Left first go woke?  When they betrayed black slaves.  He takes us into the horrific world of racist Muslim Arabs barbarizing black slaves in Africa.  [Video clip]

A clever way to get the Black Lives Matter paintings off the street.  It was a Big Deal when New York mayor Bill de Blasio, after asking the federal government for over $7 billion in federal aid for Wuhan virus losses, nevertheless managed to scrounge up the money to pay city workers to paint a giant "Black Lives Matter" sign on the street in front of Trump Tower.  The fact that Trump lives in the White House and that de Blasio is a man running New York into the ground was irrelevant.  Mayor de Blasio had made his statement.  The New York BLM sign has already been attacked several times.  The most dramatic attack came from Bevelyn Beatty, a woman of rare courage: [...]

Preambles to Revolution: Is Black Lives Matter becoming a state religion?  In San Francisco's Golden Gate Park the graceful statuary of Francis Scott Key, Miguel Cervantes, Junipero Serra, and U.S. Grant are vandalized.  In a matter of weeks, the target has shifted from police brutality to Western civilization and society and its heritage.  As giants topple, Americans suffer the demoralizing spectacle of legislators kneeling for the television cameras in kente cloth.  Presidential candidate Joe Biden — and former senator and vice president — proclaims that ending "systemic racism" is the "moral obligation of our time."  Is Black Lives Matter becoming a state religion?  A growing camp with enormous institutional power is positioning itself against the white race, men, Christianity, capitalism, private property, and heterosexuality, in other words, against the people, institutions, belief systems, and worldly activities that drove the nation's development and dreams.

Cisco fires employees criticizing Black Lives Matter.  Tech giant Cisco has reportedly fired a number of its employees for making comments critical of Black Lives Matter, including the statement "all lives matter" in response to the popular refrain.  ReclaimTheNet reports that the employees were fired for commenting on a video conference by the company's CEO and other top executives, who expressed vocal support for the Black Lives Matter organization.  The publication reports that an internal company survey found that only 3.8% of Cisco employees were black, and that the executives at the top committed itself to changing this number by hiring more black employees.

Bill de Blasio uses police to guard 'Black Lives Matter' mural as NYC violence continues.  New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to ignore the violence sweeping his city, and is instead obsessed with a mural he helped paint on 5th Avenue.  Reading "Black Lives Matter" in big yellow letters, the mural is a personal vanity project for the mayor, as well as a testament to de Blasio's desire to stick it to US President Donald Trump.  To this end, he has apparently stationed the 1st and 8th NYPD divisions to guard the thing as though it were a priceless work of art at the MoMA.

BLM 'activist' Henry E. Washington arrested for killing a cop.  Mainstream media yawns.  One police officer was murdered and his partner was shot and injured Monday night [7/13/2020] following a pursuit of a vehicle that ended in a pedestrian being stuck.  But the driver of the vehicle didn't surrender, choosing instead to fire a weapon at the police SUV pursuing him.  Black Lives Matter activist Henry Eugene Washington, 37, was arrested early the next morning after getting stuck between two buildings as he tried to climb down from his hiding place not far from the scene of the crime. [...] 48-hours after the killing of a white police officer, none of the major networks or news outlets have reported it.  The likely reason is the suspect's affiliation with Black Lives Matter, which can be clearly seen on his public Facebook page.

Cisco Fires Employees for Criticizing Black Lives Matter During Online Diversity Forum.  Another example of criticism of Black Lives Matter movement falsely being equated with racism:  "the world's largest networking company, said it fired "a handful" of workers for inappropriate conduct because it "will not tolerate" racism.

A Clever Way to Take BLM Messages off the Street WITHOUT Getting Arrested.  You might have heard about the people arrested, and in one case charged with a "hate crime," for trying to paint over the legalized Black Lives Matter graffiti defacing our streets.  But there's more than one way to skin a cat, as a California woman proved by getting a BLM message off a local street by cleverly using the law:  She announced that if the pavement was now a public forum, then she demands equal access for her message — "MAGA 2020."  And that BLM graffiti was gone faster than you could say "I can't breathe."  If you've wondered why a pentagram, a "Festivus" pole, and even a Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster display may sit alongside a Nativity scene at Christmastime, it's based on a First Amendment interpretation holding that the government may not discriminate among types of religious and political speech.  It's the Cloward-Piven strategy applied to culture.  Yet what's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander, as KPIX reports: [...]

Woke Vs.  Racist:  What's the Difference?  There's a great comedy video that went viral this week pointing out the similarities between the woke set and racists.  Like all good comedy, it's funny because it's true.  If you watch any of these Black Lives Matter "protests" you notice one big thing: they're mostly young white people.  Yes, the leaders of the organization "Black Lives Matter" are black, they're also rich, racist Marxists busy counting piles of money, but the people attacking police officers are mostly white.  Listening to the rioters, pundits, politicians, and reporters you notice something odd: they all seem to believe black people are incapable of succeeding without their help.  This used to be called the "white savior complex," now it's simply called "progressive."

Leftist Antifa Terrorists and BLM Mob Hurl Frozen Bottles, Sticks, Cans, Fireworks at Chicago Police.  Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorists swarmed the Columbus statue in Chicago tonight.  They vandalized the statue and attempted to pull it down with ropes.  They were ready to rip it down.  The Chicago Police then moved in and took control of the area.  That's when the Antifa and Leftist mob started hurling frozen bottles, sticks, cans, rocks and fireworks at the Chicago police!

White Police Officer Murdered, BLM Activist Linked To Illegal Drugs Arrested.  A police officer was murdered and his partner was shot on Monday [7/13/2020] after pursuing a vehicle, who eventually struck a pedestrian as well.  The driver, a Black Lives Matter activist, didn't surrender after hitting the bystander, instead, he opened fire.  Incidentally, not one of the major news outlets have reported on the incident.

SF police commission votes to install BLM posters in every station.  San Francisco's Police Commission voted Wednesday evening [7/15/2020] to display a "Black lives matter" poster in every station throughout the city, despite objections from the rank-and-file's union.  The resolution, which was unanimously approved, ordered the Police Department to install a poster of at least 32 by 24 inches in each district station within 30 days.  The poster must "prominently and exclusively" feature the phrase "Black lives matter" and it must be displayed in a place visible to station visitors.

NBA Legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Blasts Anti-Semitism in Black Lives Matter Movement.  One of the greatest basketball players of all time has given an insightful and eloquent warning that the lack of attention to anti-Semitism is helping to perpetuate racism in America.  Los Angeles Lakers all-star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is a columnist for The Hollywood Reporter and wrote a stern warning this week that there was an alarming connection between hatred of Jews on social media and Black Lives Matter.  "Anti-Semitic tweets and posts from sports and entertainment celebrities are a very troubling omen for the future of the Black Lives Matter movement, but so too is the shocking lack of massive indignation," Abdul-Jabbar wrote.

Dining Out in Dallas in the Age of Black Lives Matter.  Even during the pandemic, you can still enjoy a pleasant dinner on the town, at least in some parts of the country.  Outdoor dining helps you avoid the ChiCom virus.  Unfortunately, you may have peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters to deal with.  [Video clip]

OK, Boomers: BLM Is Not Marxist, It's Racist.  If you listen carefully to how some conservatives, in particular, conservatives "of a certain age," speak about Black Lives Matter, you'll hear a lot of talk about how BLM is Marxist.  At first glance, this is understandable, given that one of the founders of the movement referred to herself and her co-founders as "trained Marxists." [...] I don't mean to pick on these individuals in particular; many of them are good patriots and conservatives who have explicitly denounced BLM's racial politics.  But at the same time, we must be clear:  Marxism doesn't define the Black Lives Matter movement — anti-white racism does.  It is understandable that some conservatives — in particular, older conservatives — are more comfortable speaking the language of anti-Marxism than anti-white racism.  Marxism is a traditional enemy for all conservatives, while many conservatives, particularly older ones, have been relentlessly trained by our left-wing media to parrot the canard that any mention of the Left's anti-white racism is a sign of "white identity politics" or even worse, "white nationalism."  But there are two problems with accepting this dubious formulation. [...]

Black Lives Matter Is Not A Peaceful Protest Group.  It is a cultural revolutionary Marxist mob pursuing the total transformation of modern society under the new woke world order.  In reality, Black Lives Matter don't actually care about black lives, otherwise there would be more outrage over recent spikes in community violence leaving more black people dead rather than chasing an anarchic quest to "defund police" that will demoralize law enforcement and increase homicides. [...] Since the killing of George Floyd at the knees of Minneapolis police, Black Lives Matter have exposed its true colors as an anarchic movement terrorizing the nation.  Within the last three months, mob rioters have burned down minority businesses, destroyed minority neighborhoods, killed a black police chief, desecrated civil rights monuments, launched deadly occupations of downtown centers, and set fire to churches.

Fight for Freedom.  [Scroll down]  Black Lives Matter is responsible for her death, for the absence of a mother in her son's life.  No one will make them pay for that life as it would be seen as a racist act.  She is the first casualty in the war against communism.  If there is anything systematic in America today, it is systematic communism.  It permeates every aspect of society.  Communists abound without knowing they are communists.  Ask anyone in state government and they will say they are not a communist, but they work all day enforcing communist principles with relish.  It gives them a sense of individual power to enforce state dictates.  The mask is a symbol of that systematic communism worn by those who do not see the connection, who no longer recognize the individual as supreme, the only way it can be in a republic.  Communism killed this young woman and all I can do is see my daughter's face in hers. [...] Jessica deserves more from us than a few tweets and a strenuous lament.  We need to fight for the freedom to say anything, be anything, pursue our dreams and provide that freedom to our posterity and hers.  Jessica stood against these bullies and communists are nothing, if not bullies.

Black Lives Matter Leader Charged With Pimping Out 17-Year-Old Girl.  A prominent Black Lives Matter organizer and co-founder was arrested last month and charged with human trafficking and prostitution.  Charles Wade was busted at a Howard Johnson Inn in College Park, Maryland, on April 25.  Wade was living at a motel room where he allegedly pimped a 17-year-old girl, police said, according to The Daily Caller.

BLM Mob Attacks 58 Year Old Man With Cerebral Palsy.  Columbus Police is asking for the public's help identifying persons in this video.  The incident involves a vehicle take-over by people protesting in the downtown area on May 31st, 2020 at approximately 7pm at the intersection of High St and Broad St.  The video documents people engaging in violent behavior directed at a victim with Cerebral Palsy and his vehicle as well as others who actively came to his rescue and attempted to stop the violence.  [Video clip]

BLM Violence Reminiscent of the Storming of the Bastille.  Actually, comparisons between recent mob violence of Antifa and the militant faction of the Black Lives Matter mobs and the mob violence of Paris in the summer of 1789 are appropriate.  Young anarchists and older hardened leaders of these organized mobs would likely look upon their own violence as necessary for the "revolution."  The intent behind their violence may have similar roots in the intent behind the storming of the Bastille.  Nevertheless, the comparison between the violence of the mobs and the violence initiated by the colonists in what escalated into the War for Independence, is overly simplistic and betrays an ignorance of history.  Such ignorance was recently on display when Hawke Newsome, a Black Lives Matter leader from greater New York, appeared on Fox News with Martha MacCallum and threatened to burn the country down if demands aren't met:  "If this country doesn't give us what we want then we will burn down the system and replace it."

Watching a BLM riot develop in real-time.  Conservatives have been saying a few consistent things about the Black Lives Matter movement:  It's not about black lives, which we can see because of its disinterest in inner-city black-on-black killings, its indifference to the slaughter of black children born and unborn, and its silence about black police officers who've been killed.  Because America has social and economic mobility, Marxists had to find a different incendiary issue which, in America, is race.  And of course, the BLM foot soldiers are primarily made up of college-educated white students, primarily women, who have drunk deeply from the Marxist swill their professors offer them.  Each of those truths about the Black Lives Matter movement is perfectly highlighted in a video that Damani Felder, a black conservative in Texas, posted to Instagram on Monday [7/13/2020].  [Video clip]

Liberal Black Lives Matter Activists Swarm and Torment Daughter of Murdered Police Officer.  Hundreds, perhaps thousands, of liberal Black Lives Matter activists are tormenting the teenage daughter of a slain police officer on social media.  On Saturday evening [7/11/2020], Texas Police Officers Edelmiro Garza Jr., 45, and Ismael Chavez, 39, were shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance in McAllen.  They were both fatally shot by the suspect as they approached the door.

Black Lives Matter mural by Trump Tower becomes scene of heated clashes.  The giant new "Black Lives Matter" sign in front of Trump Tower has become a flashpoint for protesters clashing over the statement.  On Saturday — just two days after Mayor Bill de Blasio was jeered as he helped paint the large yellow mural — there were further ugly confrontations as dozens of "All Lives Matter" counter-protesters descended on Fifth Avenue, photos and video show.  As the group unveiled several flags, including "thin blue line" ones showing support for law enforcement, an opposing protester raced over and swiped a flagpole — almost starting a brawl, video showed.

Thomas Sowell: 'Systemic Racism' Has 'No Meaning'.  Conservative African American economist Thomas Sowell says that the term "systemic racism," which is central to the Black Lives Matter movement, has "no meaning." [...] Sowell, who recently turned 90, was born poor in North Carolina, and grew up in Harlem before attending the Stuyvesant magnet school and moving on to the Ivy League and the University of Chicago.  Initially attracted to the left, Sowell eventually rejected socialism in favor of conservatism.  He has written some of the most important critiques of left-wing dogma.

It's All About November 3.  As we look around at American society today, what do we see?  A confusing mélange that seems partly mindless, partly vicious. [...] And what about the malignant nonsense that is Black Lives Matter?  How did that happen?  How is it that celebrities, major corporations, and tony schools and colleges experienced simultaneous multiple paroxysms of woke self-abasement because a lowlife career criminal with serious cardiac problems died in police custody?  How do you go from an arrest in Minneapolis to the desecration of the Lincoln Memorial, the looting and burning of businesses across the country, and a regime of racially based (and racially biased) communal penance? [...] The political weapon that was COVID-19 falters.  No problem.  Declare a race war!  Smash up the storefronts.  Get everybody talking about racism all the time.  Ignore the fact that the people overwhelmingly harmed by Black Lives Matter are inner-city blacks.  Blame everything on Donald Trump.

"Black Lives Matter" is a Blood Libel Against White America.  [Scroll down]  These widely publicized deaths are usually the result of either a criminal attack by a black person on a police officer or an accidental death attributable to the arrested black person's own bad health.
  •   Eric Garner didn't die of being choked — that was a lie.  He died of weighing 350 pounds and straining himself by fighting police. [...]
  •   George Floyd didn't die from having his neck knelt on — that was a lie, too.  The police autopsy said that he died of a heart attack, and had drugs and traces of Covid-19 in his system, and he was complaining of breathing problems while still upright. [...]
  •   Freddie Gray didn't die from a "rough ride" in Baltimore — that was a lie, as the failure to convict any of the police involved shows.
  •   Michael Brown didn't have his hands up when he was shot — that was a lie (told originally by his accomplice) as shown by the Grand Jury testimony from local (black) witnesses.
The basic unreported fact is the huge amount of crime committed by blacks, which it's considered indecent to speak of in a newspaper.

As Black children are killed in spiking urban violence, where's the outrage from the white and the woke?  BLM isn't a movement as much as it is a political and fundraising arm, founded by neo-Marxists, and currently aligned with the Democratic Party.  BLM sees no percentage in pressuring big-city mayors to stop street violence.  Its outrage is select and reserved for white police officers who kill unarmed Black men.  Those young, white and woke BLM supporters who filled the streets, masked, chanting and angry, in legitimate protests over the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd by a white police officer, also aren't venting much public, organized outrage over Black children being slaughtered.  They shouted so loudly and passionately about defunding or abolishing the police, but aren't they also concerned about the lives of Black children being taken in street gang wars across the country?

Does Black Lives Matter Create a Hostile Work Environment?  Black Lives Matter has created an environment in which you can destroy just about anybody by calling him a racist, and now we need to turn this environment against BLM. Could a good employment lawyer argue that an employer's or university's support for BLM constitutes an actionable hostile work environment or hostile learning environment?  One of the qualifications for a hostile work environment (or hostile learning environment in a school or university) is simply that somebody has to feel offended, which is the "woke" Left's favorite method of attacking its enemies.  The complainant must also show that it is discriminatory, pervasive, and harassing.  A swastika or KKK hood would almost certainly meet all these requirements for a Jewish or black employee.  A good lawyer might be able to argue that an employer's support for Black Lives Matter similarly creates a hostile work environment for Caucasians in general and Jews in particular.

WNBA Players Call For Sen. Kelly Loeffler To Step Down As Team Owner Over 'Black Lives Matter' Remarks.  Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) faces calls to step down as co-owner of the Atlanta Dream WNBA franchise after speaking out against the league's support for the self-proclaimed Marxist organization "Black Lives Matter."  The Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) announced it will be dedicating its upcoming season to promoting BLM and joining the National Basketball Association in painting the words "Black Lives Matter" on the court sidelines.  The league also plans to print the words "Black Lives Matter" and "Say Her Name" on WNBA players' warm-up uniforms.  Loeffler, who owns 49 percent of the Atlanta Dream, wrote to the league earlier this week, upset that the WNBA is subscribing to a "particular political agenda" which "undermines the potential of the sport and sends a message of exclusion."

Fair is fair!  Pro-Trump women's org formally requests its own NYC street mural, threaten legal action if refused.  Is everybody equal in New York City — or are some more (or less) equal than others?  This is the question that one pro-Trump non-profit appears to be trying to answer.  In a letter submitted Thursday [7/9/2020] to NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio, the women of Women for America First requested that, in light of the mayor allowing Black Lives Matter activists to paint a taxpayer-funded BLM mural in front of Trump Tower on 5th Avenue, the mayor allow them to paint their own mural.

Police association asks Palo Alto to remove convicted cop killer from BLM mural.  The National Police Association is asking a Silicon Valley city to change a large Black Lives Matter mural in front of City Hall to remove the painting of a fugitive who is wanted for escaping prison nearly 50 years ago while serving time for killing a police officer.  The mural is made of up 16 individual letters, each having their own, unique art display, to demonstrate support for the global BLM movement.  The second to the last letter is a mural of Joanne Chesimard, who has been wanted by the FBI since escaping prison in New Jersey in November 1979 and fleeing to Cuba, where she received asylum.

Not All Black Lives Matter to Black Lives Matter.  This week, CNN's Don Lemon, who has spent the last few weeks bashing the supposed thoroughgoing systemic racism of the United States, hosted black actor Terry Crews. [...] Black Lives Matter, as Crews correctly pointed out, has never restricted its mandate to the question of police violence:  It has announced that its focuses also include police brutality, transgender rights, gay rights, disrupting the nuclear family, and freeing Palestine, among other diverse topics.  So why is Lemon so deeply invested in preventing conversations about black lives?  Why, in fact, do only some black lives matter, rather than all?  That's not merely a question asked by conservatives or contrarians.  It's being asked all over the United States by black Americans being left to the predations of criminals, in large part thanks to the woke virtue signaling of many Black Lives Matter leaders and media allies.

Clarence Thomas' wife denounces town's Black Lives Matter sign, slams organization.  Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, the prominent conservative activist married to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, recently denounced a DC-area Black Lives Matter banner.  Black Lives Matter is a "Trojan Horse" for "mob rule" and "cultural revolution," Ginni Thomas wrote in a June 24 email to Clifton, Virginia, officials, the Washington Post reports.  Thomas, who is white but whose husband is the only black Supreme Court justice, is influential in her own right in DC and in White House meetings has pushed President Trump to pick more conservative aides.  Thomas objected to a banner that reads "Welcome to Clifton where Black Lives Matter," which was installed after the killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.  Unrest following Floyd's death included arson and widespread looting near the White House.

At least he's transparent.
Mayor De Blasio Tells CNN's Wolf Blitzer That He Is Banning All Large Gatherings in NYC Except For Black Lives Matter Riots.  New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and his wife Chirlane McCray joined activists on Thursday to paint Black Lives Matter on the street in front of Trump Tower.  De Blasio does this as violence soars in his city and businesses are still locked down.  Later Thursday afternoon, the Commie mayor told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that he is banning all large gatherings such as parades, fairs and concerts except for Black Lives Matter riots through September.

A Nightmare Campaign of Outright Idiocy.  As we get into high summer, there must be a very large number of Americans now actively considering whether the country is going mad. [...] The Democratic presidential nominee is a waxwork dummy hiding in his basement.  Joe Biden can scarcely utter a correct English sentence and has the haggard countenance of a fatigued nonagenarian.  In his few television and internet appearances, the former vice president is ambiguous about defunding the police and continues to regard BLM as a valuable political ally fighting racial inequality, even though in the last month it has revealed itself proudly as a white-hating Marxist urban terrorist organization.

BLM Protester Punches a Trump Supporter Right In Front of Cops, It Doesn't End Well.  BLM folks are still hanging out nightly in the area of St. Johns's Church, in Washington, D.C., near the White House.  While the police cleared away any occupation, any tents and put up fencing around the church, they still show up nightly to walk around and yell things at the cops before they go home.  Jorge Ventura picked up some video though that has to be one of the dumbest moves of all time by a BLM protester.  [Video clip]

Companies Must Answer For Their Support Of The Radical Black Lives Matter Organization.  Several companies have been bragging recently that they're providing financial support to the official Black Lives Matter organization to burnish their PR image.  No doubt they're getting Woke points for doing so.  But do the executives at those companies have any idea how radical this group is and what it's trying to achieve?  The Daily Signal reported earlier this week that at least 18 corporations have pledged hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.  The list includes:  DoorDash, Deckers, Amazon, Gatorade, Microsoft, Glossier, 23andMe, AirBnB, Unilever, Bungie, Nabisco, Dropbox, Fitbit, Developer Digital, Skillshare, Square Enix, The Game Co., and Tinder.  The Daily Signal notes that other companies said they were giving to Black Lives Matter, but didn't specifically say it was to the foundation.

Opposing Black Lives Matter Now Means Hate Crime Charges.  America is going to a bad totalitarian place at an incredible speed.  ["]A California duo was charged with a hate crime for defacing a newly painted Black Lives Matter mural outside of a courthouse, officials announced Tuesday.["]  Painting over a political message you oppose is not a hate crime.  Authorities who support that message using hate crime regulations to suppress protests are blatantly using the law to enforce their political affiliation. [...] This might at most be vandalism.  It's not a hate crime.  There's no expression of hatred or hostility for black people.  There is a rejection of Black Lives Matter, a political movement.  Conflating the political movement with black people and then treating hostility to BLM as a hate crime makes opposition to a political movement into a crime.  Treating it as one, while members of the racist Black Lives Matter movement tear down statues and terrorize people, is enlisting local authorities in that same campaign of political terror, punishing people for the political content of the vandalism, rather than for the act itself.

Slavery Still Exists.  Where's Black Lives Matter?  It is, or ought to be, clear to everyone by now that Black Lives Matter is not a genuine movement for racial justice and a more equitable society, but a Marxist organization using real, exaggerated, and imagined racial injustice to try to destroy the United States.  Anyone who is still in doubt about this should consider the fact that some blacks are still enslaved today, and Black Lives Matter never has and never will say a word about it, because that organization doesn't really care about black lives.  If they did actually care about the lives of black people, Black Lives Matter would today be drawing international attention to statements made recently by the Mauritanian anti-slavery activist Maryam Bint Al-Sheikh of the Initiative for the Resurgence of the Abolitionist Movement (IRA).  According to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Maryam Bint Al-Sheikh stated in a June 18 interview:  "Unfortunately, there is still slavery in Mauritania.  More than 20% of people in Mauritania suffer from slavery — a situation where a person owns another person and does whatever he wants with him at any given moment.  This situation exists here in Mauritania, unfortunately."

Black Lives Matter Has No Claim To The Second Amendment.  During an interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum on June 24, the leader of Black Lives Matter's (BLM) Greater New York chapter, Hawk Newsome, threatened that "if this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it."  He also said that for BLM to "intervene effectively" would be an example of "upholding the Second Amendment."  To the contrary, however, the violence and destruction Newsome threatened, and the violent crimes and property crimes rioters have been committing in support of BLM's political objectives the last few weeks, are things the Second Amendment is intended to prevent.  As the Supreme Court noted in District of Columbia v. Heller, 2008, the Second Amendment protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms so that a well regulated militia drawn from the people will be able to assure the security of a free state against three threats to life and liberty, two of which are being posed by BLM: insurrection and tyranny.

What Black Lives Matter Says About White People.  It's impossible to convince people that the phrase "Black Lives Matter" is an opinion rather than a fact in a world that long ago forgot the difference between opinions and facts. [...] And, yeah, OK, even though capitalism continues to ruthlessly exploit black people despite the fact that in real dollars and cents, black people take far more from the public till in government services than they contribute to the rest of society in taxes, the capitalist system is still somehow exploiting black people, which is some kind of weird statistical miracle when you consider the fact that Amazon, American Express, Bank of America, Barclays Bank, Barnes & Noble, BMW, Burger King, Cadillac, Capitol Records, Coca Cola, General Motors, Goldman Sachs, Google, HBO, Home Depot, MasterCard, McDonald's, NASCAR, Netflix, Nike, Paramount Pictures, Pepsico, Porsche, Proctor & Gamble, Reebok, Sony, Starbucks, Target, Twitter, Verizon, Walmart, Warner Bros, and Wells Fargo have all pledged emotional, spiritual, and financial support to Black Lives Matter.

Trump's accomplished way more for blacks, so why does BLM want him out and Joe Biden in?  President Donald Trump has done much more for the black community in roughly three years than his likely Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, did during several terms in the Senate and two terms as Barack Obama's back-up, so it's not clear why Black Lives Matter wouldn't work hard to reelect him, John Philip Sousa IV noted in a Monday column in the Washington Examiner.  In addition, Sousa observed that the BLM movement appears to be selective in its outrage as well as responses to incidents involving the deaths of black people, including children.  "If all black lives mattered to Black Lives Matter, why weren't they in Chicago last month when Mekhi James, a three-year-old black toddler, was shot and killed?  Young Mekhi was just one of 100 people shot in Chicago over a single weekend," he wrote, adding that a 13-year-old girl was also killed by gunfire over the Independence Day holiday.

BLM's Violence & the Death of America's Cities.  The police-hating rhetoric of the openly and proudly Marxist "Black Lives Matter" (BLM) movement is doing exactly what it did five years ago — creating a massive increase in violent crime and homicide throughout urban America.  You may recall that back in 2015-16, BLM's anti-police protests and riots — particularly in the aftermath of the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri — intimidated officers nationwide into becoming much less proactive in dealing with criminal suspects.  A Pew Research Center report titled "Behind the Badge" — which tabulated the results of a questionnaire that was sent to thousands of officers — confirmed that 85 to 95 percent of law-enforcement officers in large police departments became highly reluctant to engage criminals except where absolutely necessary.  The consequences of the new timidity of law-enforcement were monumental:
  •   In 2015, America's 56 largest cities experienced a 17% rise in homicides.
  •   Twelve cities with large black populations saw their murder totals spike even more dramatically — e.g., by 54% in D.C., 60% in Newark, 72% in Milwaukee, 83% in Nashville, and 90% in Cleveland.
  •   Robberies surged in America's 81 largest cities during the 12 months that followed the shooting of Michael Brown.
  •   During the first quarter of 2016, homicides in America's 63 largest cities increased by 9%, while nonfatal shootings were up 21%.

Black Lives Matter Has Super Powers?  Here's the Kryptonite.  This article gives everybody it reaches the power to send BLM, along with its political, academic, and corporate supporters, crashing down in total ruin.  This material, all of which readers and other interested parties can verify independently from the links — you don't have to take my word for it — also has the potential to demolish the credibility of ActBlue, the Democrats' key fundraising organization, and the left-leaning Thousand Currents organization.  This material is, to be quite blunt, what Kryptonite is to Superman, Valyrian Steel is to the White Walkers in Game of Thrones, and a cross is to Dracula.  The issue consists simply of BLM's apparent misuse of 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money to influence the November election.  An inaccurate story has been circulating to the effect that Black Lives Matter is working with ActBlue to launder money that goes to Democratic candidates.  Open Secrets explains, "A donation to BLM through ActBlue goes just to BLM, not any other group."  ActBlue is itself not 501(c)(3) tax-exempt, so there's nothing more to see here, is there, folks?  There is actually plenty to see, and the real truth is far worse than the debunked rumor.

Pro-Palestinian BLM Rallies in U.S. Call for 'Death to Israel, Death to America'.  At pro-Palestinian Black Lives Matter rallies in New York and Washington, chants were heard calling for "Death to Israel," "Death to America" and "From Gaza to Minnesota, globalize the Intifada!"  Several hundred protesters attended the July 1 demonstration in Brooklyn dubbed as a "Day of Rage" event, set to coincide with the earliest date Israel could begin its plans to apply Israeli law over parts of the West Bank and the Jordan Valley.  Speakers issued inflammatory rallying cries that ran the gamut from anti-Semitic and anti-American to just plain absurd.  One pro-North Korea activist called for the end of the United States of America and its "puppet governments," the liberation of "Palestine," and for Korea to "be one again."

Spoiled 'self-hating white chicks' sing 'Ashamed to be an American,' illustrate what's wrong with BLM.  On Saturday [7/4/2020], a young, gay, anti-Trump white woman posted a TikTok video depicting her and another young white woman singing an anti-American rendition of Lee Greenwood's classic patriotic song, "God Bless the USA." [...] In short, she's a far-left zealot, and thus her views are completely detached from reality, as noted in the tweet above by black reporter and conservative commentator Jon Miller.  According to Miller, the two are "self-hating" in the sense that they hate the country where they grew up and now live seemingly comfortable lives.

Could IT Happen Here?  Could IT happen in the United States?  Auschwitz survivor Primo Levi said, "It happened, therefore it can happen again.  It can happen everywhere." [...] On June 24, Greater New York Black Lives Matter chairperson Hawk Newsome threateningly warned, "If this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.  All right?  And I could be speaking ... figuratively.  I could be speaking literally. ... I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary."

As America Is Torn to Shreds.  I awakened filled with dread, as I customarily do these days.  It has to do with my beautiful America being torn to shreds by gangstas and their white enablers in the media and politics and the academy.  Right now, we are seeing the right to free speech demolished in front of our very eyes.  You cannot say one word against Black Lives Matter, a totally mixed up, wacko entity, without being fired from whatever academic or government or media or business job you had.  It doesn't matter that BLM says nothing against the real killers of blacks — gangs and abortionists.  It doesn't matter that BLM gets its way by scaring peaceable people by its violence and destruction of property.  Right now, Black Lives Matter is running day to day life here in America.

Four Flaws in Logic of the Black Lives Matter Movement.  [Scroll down]  Finally, Harvard University scholar Ronald Fryer presented a large-scale study in the Journal of Political Economy, "An Empirical Analysis of Racial Differences in Police Use of Force" that completely deflates the assertions of the BLM Movement.  The Bureau of Justice Statistics released its 2018 survey of criminal victimization where there were 593,598 interracial violent victimizations (excluding homicide) between blacks and whites, including white-on-black and black-on-white attacks.  Blacks committed 537,204 of those interracial felonies or 90 percent, and whites committed 56,394 of them or less than 10 percent.

Black Lives Matter Runs Amok In DC On Independence Day.  Black Lives Matter protests broke out in the nation's capital on Independence Day resulting in the highway between Washington, D.C. and Virginia being shut down. [...] They then left the park and got into a fight with Trump supporters at the Washington Monument.  People fought over a pole that had a "don't tread on me" flag, a Trump flag, and an American flag on it.  The protesters screamed at police when they tried to come break up the fight, and they also got into a screaming match with Trump supporters.

If You Really Believe Black Lives Matter, Stop Supporting Black Lives Matter.  When people and organizations throw money at identity politics, do they know that the causes they support conflict with their purported goals?  Black Lives Matter (BLM) cloaks itself in garb of justice and morality.  By its very name, well-intentioned people are compelled to support it.  After all, who does not think the lives of black people matter?  Uninformed yet impassioned Americans are unaware that the organization's name is a rhetorical facade that masks a Marxist core.

Black Lives Matter founding member says President Trump is the 'embodiment of white supremacist terrorism'.  A founding member of Black Lives Matter said President Trump was the 'embodiment of white supremacist terrorism' and 'terrorist in chief' over his recent comments on the movement.  Melina Abdullah on Thursday [7/2/2020] appeared on CNN's Newsroom to blast the embattled commander-in-chief for calling a proposed Black Lives Matter mural outside of Trump Tower a 'symbol of hate.'  'I think it's the height of hypocrisy for Donald Trump to call anything a symbol of hate,' said Abdullah, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter Los Angeles chapter and a Pan-African studies professor at California State University.

A Farrakhan Supporter Led the LA Black Lives Matter Rally That Became a Pogrom.  [Scroll down]  Melina Abdullah, the lead organizer of Black Lives Matter in LA and a professor of Pan-African Studies at Cal State, had been very clear about her motive for bringing her hateful campaign to the area.  "We've been very deliberate in saying that the violence and pain and hurt that's experienced on a daily basis by black folks at the hands of a repressive system should also be visited upon, to a degree, to those who think that they can just retreat to white affluence," the BLM-LA co-founder ranted.  Melina Abdullah has a hateful record of appearing at Farrakhan and Nation of Islam events and praising the antisemitic hate group and its leader.  When Facebook decided to remove Farrakhan over his hateful rhetoric toward Jews, the Black Lives Matter LA co-founder came to his defense.

The Real Story of Black Lives Matter — Marxist, Anti-Family Radicals.  My guess is that 99 percent of those supporting this group have no idea what it stands for. [...] Black Lives Matter was founded by radical extremists who are perfectly pleased with the rioting, looting, vandalism, and violence that have plagued our cities for the past several weeks.  It's what violent revolutionaries do.  Do I exaggerate?  Two of the three founders are self-described "trained Marxists."  Co-founder Patrisse Cullors told Cosmo that Assata Shakur is one of the leaders who inspired her.  Shakur's real name is Joanne Chesimard and she is wanted by the FBI as a "domestic terrorist" for murdering a police officer, escaping prison, and hiding out in Cuba for decades.  One of the board of directors for the leftist group Thousand Currents, which handles donations to Black Lives Matter, is a convicted terrorist.  She was pardoned by President Bill Clinton.  They live their beliefs.

Is Provo, Utah Ground Zero?  Here's a little experiment for you to conduct this morning.  Go to Google or whatever other search engine you use and do a search on "Provo shooting."  Now, try to identify a single story on that topic from a national news media outlet.  If you find one, let me know because it is not coming up on my computer.  For those of you who may have missed it, on Monday, BLM rioters actually shot and almost killed a man who was attempting to escape after his car had been surrounded by thugs wielding clubs and other weapons.  One man — who has now been arrested — drew a pistol and fired two shots at the man, with one severely wounding him.  Videos taken of the incident show at least one additional man pulling a pistol and firing on the car as it drove away.  This is an incredibly dangerous escalation in the violence that BLM and Antifa have been committing on the streets of major cities for the past five weeks, yet it gets not a peep out of our utterly corrupt national news media.

Antifa Terrorist Arrested in Shooting That Wounded Utah Driver Trying to Flee Swarming Black Lives Matter Mob.  The Antifa terrorist who shot the driver of an SUV has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, aggravated assault and other charges.  A 60-year-old man in Provo, Utah was shot by an Antifa terrorist Monday night as he tried to escape a Black Lives Matter mob that had taken over an intersection and swarmed his SUV.

BLM Activist Is Arrested for Attempted Murder as the Mainstream Media Rush to Their Bunkers.  Early this morning [7/1/2020], a Black Lives Matter activist was arrested for attempted murder after firing a gun into an SUV at a recent "protest" in Utah.  There's actually video of the incident, which clearly shows the driver of the vehicle barely creeping forward trying to escape being mobbed before he's shot by a man wearing a mask.  [Video clips]  There is no ambiguity here about who the shooter was and who he supported.  His social media included pro-BLM material, though his presence at the protest alone would be enough proof if he were of a different political persuasion.

Donations to Black Lives Matter Go to 'ActBlue' — The Activist Arm of the Democrat Party.  A young woman suffering from white guilt called a friend of mine to ask what "ActBlue" was?  Planning to contribute to Black Lives Matter, she went to their website and clicked on the bright blue "donate" button.  She was immediately redirected to ActBlue, which is the activist arm of the Democrat Party.  At the bottom of the page, it clearly states:  "ActBlue Charities is a qualified 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed under the law."  Its website says:  "There's just a 3.95% processing fee on all transactions.  That's the only fee you'll ever be charged when you use AB Charities."  In "The Fine Print" section, it states that if a campaign or a committee doesn't cash an ActBlue check within 60 days or a contribution is refused, the donation "will be re-designated as a contribution to ActBlue."  Those contributions "will be kept by ActBlue and used generally to support its social welfare activities."

D.C. sued over Black Lives Matter painted on city streets.  Judicial Watch went to court Wednesday [7/1/2020] demanding access to paint the streets of Washington with its own political message after the city wrote "Black Lives Matter" on one street and allowed protesters to paint "Defund the Police" next to it.  The conservative group said the city has effectively turned its roadways into a public forum, and so it must allow those with differing viewpoints than BLM protesters to have the same access, or else it's violating the First Amendment.  Judicial Watch said it wants to paint its own motto, "Because No One is Above the Law."

Jesse Taggart, 33, Charged With Attempted Murder For Allegedly Shooting Driver at Provo BLM Protest.  Black Lives Matter activist Jesse Taggart, 33, was arrested for allegedly shooting an elderly man during a riot in Provo, Utah on Tuesday [6/30/2020] and hit with a host of charges including attempted aggravated murder.  According to Provo Police, Taggart was charged with attempted aggravated murder, aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, rioting, threatening use of a weapon in a fight or quarrel, criminal mischief and firing a weapon near a highway.

Provo Police Arrest Black Lives Matter Agitator Who Allegedly Shot SUV Driver.  A 33-year-old Black Lives Matter supporter was arrested Tuesday night [6/30/2020] in connection with the shooting of an SUV driver during a riot in downtown Provo.  Jesse Taggart, of Salt Lake City, "was booked into the Utah County Jail and held on charges of attempted aggravated murder, aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury, rioting, threatening the use of a weapon during a fight or quarrel, criminal mischief, and firing a weapon near a highway, according to Provo Police.  As American Greatness reported on Tuesday, video footage of the altercation on Monday showed someone shooting into a white SUV while it was being mobbed by violent agitators.

Black Lives Matter is a state-backed religion.  [Scroll down]  Among the reasons why this still-amorphous 'movement' became so widely popular with such break-neck speed is perhaps because in the eyes of many, it transcended mere politics.  Many so-called protests took on features highly reminiscent of religion:  collective worship, public confession and requests for salvation, devotional poses and gestures, group prayer, the creation of a new pantheon of martyr figures to revere, and the adoption of liturgical rites and rituals.  Children and teenagers have been encouraged to publicly repent for their sins, with the 'original sin' being 'white privilege'.

The Marxist Mob Isn't Coming — They're Already Here.  Across the cultural spectrum, ever since "Defund the police!" instantly became their rallying cry, you've seen most of the nation's news and entertainment media outlets stand in solidarity with the Marxist activists of Black Lives Matter [BLM].  Corporations publicly align with BLM, vowing to "do their part" to "educate" all of us about America's "systemic racism".  One smothering monolithic voice will come from across the cultural spectrum from all the media sources the Marxists have embedded themselves within.  "You are systemically racist, America, and you need to change!  Show us that you know you need to change!  Kneel and confess your white privilege!  Kneel before the activists of BLM and give them what they want!"  You'll hear this propaganda endlessly from political shows.  On the sports channels.  Movie theater chains.  Netflix.  Music channels.  Home shopping networks.  Video game channels.  Comic books.  When I say across the entire cultural spectrum, I am not exaggerating.

More Domestic Terrorism — Armed Black Lives Matter Terrorists Shoot SUV Driver in Provo Utah.  The level of cultural Marxism within the media reports is even more significant than ever before.  U.S. media are trying to protect the domestic terrorists.  It is quite unnerving.  In Provo, Utah, a group of armed Black Lives Matter terrorists surrounded a vehicle at an intersection.  The driver would not exit the vehicle to be beaten by the mob.  One of the BLM activists pulled a gun and demanded the driver come out, when the driver refused the terrorist opened fire shooting the driver.  The driver hits the gas and tries to escape, the terrorist fires through the rear window as another armed terrorist joins the fray from the opposite side of the street.  [Video clip]

Brit Hume Rips Black Lives Matter And 'Stomach-Turning' Corporate Support.  Fox News correspondent Brit Hume criticized Black Lives Matter during a Tuesday night [6/30/2020] "Tucker Carlson Tonight" analysis segment.  "Let's be clear about what the Black Lives Matter movement stands for," Hume told Fox News host Tucker Carlson.  "It isn't about protecting or saving black lives.  It's about protecting and saving some black lives.  Which is to say, it's a number that is dwarfed by those who are lost in the kind of urban violence that you describe in Chicago, New York and other cities."  Chicago in particular has experienced a surge in gun violence the past several weeks, with 320 homicides in 2020 alone, including six children shot and killed in just one week.

The Source of BLM's Super-power.  The short answer to the source of BLM's super-power is fake news media.  Fake news medias' bogus reporting has corporations and politicians believing a majority of Americans are filled with white guilt and therefore support BLM and their absurd demands.  Consequently, whatever BLM wants, BLM gets.  Supportive and fearful corporations have given BLM $400 million to bludgeon mainstream America into surrendering to BLM's mission to transform America into a socialist/communist nation.

Man Who's Sick Of Hundreds Of BLM Signs Across The Street From House Rips Them Down, Gets Assaulted.  This is the fence in Visalia, just in front of El Diamante High School.  There are literally [hundreds] of signs that have been there for weeks, many who live there are sick of them.  This man, who lives across the street, started ripping them down when, out of nowhere, some maniac jumps him.  [Video clip]

Fox News reporter is trapped inside his car by dozens of Black Lives Matter protesters after he 'shoved' woman in Seattle's CHOP zone.  An angry mob trapped a Fox News correspondent in his vehicle outside of the CHOP zone in Seattle after a Black Lives Matter member claimed she was shoved by the reporter, can disclose.  The incident occurred just hours and feet from where two black teenagers were shot when they tried to plow through barricades of the Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP) area on Monday [6/29/2020].  The reporter was identified as Dan Springer.

Black Lives Matter Organizer: 'Give Me Money or We'll Break Windows'.  Black Lives Matter organizer Devonere Armani Johnson had a simple and straightforward message of racial justice for Madison store owners of all races.  "Give me money or we'll break windows," the repeat offender had allegedly told them.  The "Free Yeshua" Madison riots began when the police arrested the BLM thug.  Johnson, who also goes by Yeshua Musa or Jesus Moses, was busted after following an older white man into Coopers Tavern while shouting, "you're a racist" at him through a megaphone, before lecturing the patrons on his opinion that, "Jesus was not a white man."  "His name was Horace," Devorene/Yeshua asserted, "and he was plagiarized from ancient Egypt."  He explained that Jesus had been sent by Queen Elizabeth to bring slaves to America.  It's possible that he was referring to Horus.

BLM Storm DC Target Store, Threaten To Shut Them Down If They Call The Cops.  They yelled, "All black people, living around this neighborhood, because you prioritize money over people, until you stop calling the police, we will continue to shut your business down."  [Video clip]

'Black Lives Matter' Wants To 'Burn Down' Western Civilization And Replace It With A Communist/Socialist Hellscape.  Are we witnessing the beginning of the end of Western civilization?  Based on recent events, it would be hard to argue otherwise.  As the mindless mob tears its way through what remains of a once-great culture, the twisted ideology it is imposing along the way — the belief (or at least pretend belief) of which is mandatory on pain of one's livelihood and societal good-standing — is one that is the polar opposite of observable reality.  Racist police officers running rampant, just looking for black men to murder; a racist country full of racists looking to hate and keep people down simply for the color of their skin; a criminal justice system geared and just itching to unjustly prosecute and disproportionately punish black offenders simply because they are black; a nation of laws unfairly tilted towards white people; an entire system built by and based on "systemic structural racism" that doesn't allow people of color to get ahead in society no matter what they do ... NONE of these exist, not in any measurable, widespread, systemic, non-overcomeable way, and yet one counters them with truth at one's own peril.

Black Lives Matter's Anti-Semitic Platform.  Black Lives Matter, the revolutionary, anti-American and anti-Semitic movement at the heart of the riots and the intellectual terror in the United States today first published its charter in August 2016. Jewish organizations from left to right condemned it for its slanderous accusation against Israel which it accused of committing "genocide: and claimed was an "apartheid" regime that had passed 50 discriminatory laws against Palestinians.  BLM's charter also endorsed and joined the movement to the anti-Semitic boycott, divestment and sanctions operation against Israel and its American Jewish supporters.

Black Lives Matter Mob Marches Through Beverly Hills Neighborhood Chanting 'Eat the Rich'.  A Black Lives Matter mob marched through Beverly Hills chanting 'eat the rich' on Friday night [6/26/2020].  The mob was once again not targeting police or the government, but the homes of random citizens.

Fox News Contributor Jessica Tarlov Says Black Lives Matter's Marxist Roots, 'Doesn't Concern Me'.  In a discussion on a potential federal police reform bill in the Senate on Thursday, FOX News contributor Lisa Boothe, fired at fellow contributor, Jessica Tarlov, for supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, despite it's Marxist ideology.  Tarlov argued, "[Black Lives Matter is] advocating for a platform that is based on the importance of treating black people in this country equally...  All lives matter cannot occur until black lives matter equally."  Boothe interjected saying, "But do the Marxist tactics not concern you?" to which Jessica said, "No, it doesn't concern me that there are roots in Marxism."

CNN picked the wrong person to interview about police and BLM.  What's a CNN host to do when confronted with a guest who doesn't accept The Narrative?  In the case of Don Lemon interviewing former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, the answer is: tell him to "keep it down," refuse to listen to what he is saying, and then abruptly cut him off.  It's not as if they are interested in anything that doesn't support The Narrative.  Much less explodes it with data on cops being killed.  [Video clip]

The Russian Origins of Black Neo-Marxism.  This is a systematic, canonical, and "ideologically correct" approach to the class struggle, designed to accomplish a dogmatic Marxist wealth redistribution.  Why?  Because since the 60s, all leftists have known the maxim:  "The issue is never the issue.  The issue is always the revolution."  That is why the two paramilitary wings of the Democrat party — the "white" Antifa and the "black" BLM — perfectly understand each other.  After all, the race is not a problem.  The main goal is the revolution.  (By the way, the "white" wing of the stormtroopers was also created by the communist:  Soviet agent Ernst Thalmann established Antifa in Germany in 1932.)  BLM stormtroopers are trying to provoke a racial war in America in the hope that it will develop into a civil war — simply because it is much easier to make a revolution during a war.  One of the founders of BLM, Patrisse Cullors, does not hide the fact that BLM members are "trained Marxists" who "read Marx, Lenin, and Mao."

BLM proves the Broken Windows Theory.  Taking over a crime-ridden New York City in 1993, Mayor Rudy Giuliani applied the Broken Windows Theory approach to crime in which small crimes are enforced as a means to create an atmosphere of law and order.  Liberals have for 20 years denied his success reducing crime as mayor had anything to do with him, much less this theory.  But under Obama, liberals began proving Giuliani was most correct.  Today, as the Black Liberation Movement (aka Black Lives Matter) takes over cities, Democrat-run cities are turning into shooting galleries. [...] This is not an overnight nightmare.  Democrats have planned this BLM rioting for a long time, and have actually held test runs in Ferguson, Missouri, and Baltimore.  Apparently, they are satisfied with their finished product.

A Terrorist's Ties to a Leading Black Lives Matter Group.  Some conservatives have begun speculating the unrest in American cities — even as late as Monday night in Washington, DC, as "protestors" unsuccessfully worked to tear down a statue of Andrew Jackson and set up an autonomous zone across the street from the White House — may in part be an attempt to affect the upcoming presidential election, with the chaos and violence intended to make it as difficult as possible for Donald Trump to win a second term.  Lending credence to this idea is the fact that at least one board member of Thousand Currents — the group fiscally sponsoring the most organized part of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, who have been involved in most of the activity surrounding the current unrest — tried the same thing almost 40 years ago during Ronald Reagan's reelection campaign.  And it landed her in federal prison for 16 years.  If there were any question whether Black Lives Matter has ideological ties to the Communist terrorists of the 1960s, the story of Susan Rosenberg should put that issue to bed.

Black Lives Matter co-founder describes herself as 'trained Marxist'.  Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are "trained Marxists" — making clear their movement's ideological foundation, according to a report.  Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported.  "The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame.  Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers," she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza.

Store in Farmington posts anti-Black Lives Matter sign, receives backlash.  A natural health store in Farmington has received community backlash in person and on social media after posting an anti-Black Lives Matter and Antifa sign, asking supporters of those groups to shop somewhere else.  Wildly Natural Foods posted a sign earlier this week that said, "If you support ANTIFA and/or BLM please shop elsewhere."  When Sam Bibo, a resident of Durango for the last eight years, saw the sign posted on Facebook, she asked family friends who live in Farmington to visit the store to see if it was true.

Black Lives Matter Destroys Statue of Immigrant Who Died Fighting Slavery.  Protesters from the Black Lives Matter movement vandalized and toppled a statue Tuesday night in Madison, Wisconsin, of Col. Hans Christian Heg, an immigrant from Norway who died fighting for the Union against slavery.

The Black Lives Matter Movement is the Enemy of African-Americans.  The first thing that I have to say is that I am an African-American man living in the Minneapolis area.  I have to state this now; otherwise, I would probably be called a racist.  Most people think Black Lives Matter is a grassroots, black-created, black-run organization dedicated to fighting racism.  It most certainly is not.  The Black Lives Matter movement is the creation of a group of a few very wealthy individuals, non-profit corporations, and the corporate media.  (Incidentally, 90% of the U.S. media is controlled by only six corporations.)  The official Black Lives Matter website,, states that Black Lives Matter is a global network foundation that is active in the U.S., the U.K., and Canada.  A global network!  Who funds Black Lives Matter?  It's funded by billionaires George Soros (Open Society Foundation), Rob McKay (Taco Bell heir), the Ford Foundation, the Borealis Philanthropy, the Democracy Alliance, and many others.  Not exactly what I would call a black-run grassroots organization.  If these facts alone don't cause you to rethink the whole Black Lives Matter thing, then you just aren't paying attention.

Black Lives Matter leader states if US 'doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system'.  Greater New York Black Lives Matter president Hawk Newsome joined "The Story" Wednesday to discuss the direction of the movement in the wake of George Floyd's death in police custody and the subsequent demonstrations across the country, many of which have sparked destruction and violence.  "You ... have said that violence is sometimes necessary in these situations," host Martha MacCallum told Newsome.  "What exactly is it that you hope to achieve through violence?"  "Wow, it's interesting that you would pose that question like that," Newsome responded, "because this country is built upon violence.  What was the American Revolution, what's our diplomacy across the globe?  "We go in and we blow up countries and we replace their leaders with leaders who we like.  So for any American to accuse us of being violent is extremely hypocritical."

Pro-BLM Brits demand St. Michael image on royal order be changed; reminds of George Floyd's death.  Angry Brits want a royal order founded in 1818 under King George III redesigned because the image of St. Michael crushing the head of Satan reminds them of a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on George Floyd.  A petition has garnered over 4,000 signatures demanding an alteration to The Order of St. Michael and St. George awarded to diplomats and senior Foreign Office officials serving abroad.  The U.K. Guardian, which first reported the activist's claims, cited three ranks for the honor:  Knight Grand Cross (GCMG); Knight Commander (KCMG); and Companion (CMG).

Black Lives Matter Does Not Care about Black Youth.  As a publicly avowed Marxist organization, Black Lives Matter (BLM) seeks to destroy the nuclear family. [...] At the Victims of Communism-Witness Project, Chinese Anastasia Lin tearfully speaks about how children were used to denounce their parents.  Nazis were masters at using children as the agents of destruction for their parents who opposed Hitler.  Sadly, however, too many historically illiterate people do not comprehend that history exists to learn from it.

2010 Arab Spring Common Connections to the 2020 Black Lives Matter Movement.  It's an interesting comparison to note.  The ideological interests behind the 2010 "Arab Spring" uprising are the exact same ideological interests behind the 2020 "Black Lives Matter" protests/uprising.  Not merely similar people, but the exact same people.  The exact same group of U.S. people who were promoting the mid-east Arab Spring in 2010 are the same people now promoting the 2020 Black Lives Matter protests.  The same politicians; the same media voices; the same newspapers; the same social media activists.  Almost every participant, and their support for the uprising '10 -vs- '20 is identical.

Black lives matter opening fire.  Firing on vehicle.  (Atlanta)

George Floyd and the Fraternal Disorder.  The first nights of rioting saw the murder of black police officers, mass looting, and widespread arson.  Allegedly, these riots are occurring as a response to racist police brutality, police corruption, and perceived systematic racism exhibited by American society.  Then again, BLM rioters in Minneapolis called for the release of Mohamed Noor, an incarcerated black police officer found guilty of 3rd degree murder and manslaughter of a white woman who had called the police to report an assault; Noor had pulled out his gun and shot the woman in her pajamas as she came out to greet the officer after he arrived on the scene.

"Some White People May Have to Die for Black Communities to Be Made Whole" — Far Left UGA Teaching Assistant on Black Lives Matter Movement.  Irami Osei-Frampong, a University of Georgia graduate student and teaching assistant recently wrote that some white people may have to die before black communities will be made whole. (Note:  His name is spelled Irami Osei-Frimpong on Twitter.)  Osei-Frampong made the comments on Facebook and says he's confused on why his words are so controversial.  [Video clip]

A Hispanic vendor in Tulsa uses Alinsky tactics against a BLM supporter.  One of the things conservatives notice whenever leftists flare up is that, subject to a few notable exceptions (Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Dan Crenshaw), our conservative politicians are cowardly.  They never call out the leftists; instead, they simply try to soothe leftists' destructiveness while accepting their premises.  Thankfully, politicians are a minority amongst conservatives.  Most conservatives are regular folks who live and breathe their principles — as is the case with a Hispanic vendor at the Tulsa rally who got harassed by a couple of white Black Lives Matter protesters.  Instead of backing down, the vendor went full, and beautiful, Alinsky on the whole BLM premise.

National Arm Of Black Lives Matter Spent Millions On Travel And Consultants, Financial Statements Show.  The national arm of Black Lives Matter spent millions on consultants, travel and compensation for its own staff between July 2017 and June 2019, according to audited financial statements prepared by its fiscal sponsor, Thousand Currents.  BLM Global Network spent $899,000 on travel, $1.6 million on consulting and $2.1 million on personnel costs during its 2017, 2018 and 2019 fiscal years, the financial statements show, together comprising 83.3% of its total spending during the three year period.  BLM Global Network granted $328,000 to outside organizations, which include local BLM chapters, during that same time frame, a figure that represents about 6% of its total spending.

BLM at War with America.  Outrageously, cowardly and traitorous politicians are allowing Black Lives Matter, a racist hate group to engage in an "Everything Must Go" fire-sale against America.  BLM is literally pulling down monuments and demanding that large portions of our history be removed from the records.  They are burning down homes which dare fly the U.S. flag.  They are taking control of portions of cities, absurdly claiming it as their new country.  Why is BLM behaving like spoiled-brat bullies on America's playground?  The answer:  Because they are allowed to do it.

Black Lives Matter:  Democrats Can't Live With Them, and Can't Live Without Them.  The folks at Black Lives Matter are really worried about black deaths.  Not most black deaths, not even very many black deaths, mind you, but only that tiny fraction of a percent of blacks who have died at the hands of (presumably) white cops.  Those are the only deaths that boil the blood of the folks at Black Lives Matter and spark the riotous mobs that loot and burn our Democrat-run cities.  Why Democrat cities?  Because in 2015, Black Lives Matter activists tested Democrats' resolve and found none. [...] The leaders of the Black Lives Matter movement want political power.  They've already acquired quite a lot of it thanks to their violent groupies, but power is addictive and they may want even more.  Right now, their knee is on the Democrat throat.  They can do whatever they want.  For their nominal political pals in the Democrat party, these are the worst of times.  They've got a tiger by the tail, and they know it.

George Washington Statue Toppled by Antifa Black Lives Matter Mob in Portland.  A statue of George Washington was toppled by Antifa and Black Lives Matter protesters in Portland, Oregon Thursday night.  The statue and its base were spray-pained with anti-American slogans including the New York Times "1619" propaganda slur.  American flags were burned on Washington.  No police were present until the statue was felled.

New Levels Of Crazy.  A friend who works for a conservative website shared an email with me that was sent to the staff, "We have to be careful" about how they write about Black Lives Matter, it said.  Not because what they were reporting was inaccurate, but because it could upset the mob, and upsetting the mob nowadays is worse than being inaccurate.  "Truth" can be whatever you want it to be, the mob, on the other hand, can seemingly make reality anything they want it to be by force of will or worse.  It's not even Black Lives Matter, really, at least not the rank and file protestors taking to the streets in righteous indignation over what happened to George Floyd.  It's the Marxist leadership that coupled with, or refused to de-couple with, ANTIFA and other Black Bloc groups hell-bent on destruction of property and society.  There's a lot of money in this racket and it's all based on fear.

Here Are the Heroes Whose Statues Black Lives Matter Has Attacked.  The statue of Raoul Wallenberg, the Swedish diplomat who saved thousands of Jews during the Holocaust, stands at the corner of Fairfax and Beverly in Los Angeles.  When the racist mobs swept through the area, looting Jewish stores and defacing synagogues with "BLM" and "Free Palestine" graffiti, the statue of a man who risked his life to resist fascism and bigotry was one of their targets.  The racists and leftists vandalizing statues across the world claim that they're fighting hate, but their targets have often been the men and women who courageously stood up to racism and hatred.

A viral video reveals the black lives that Black Lives Matter destroyed.  [Scroll down]  The unnamed woman narrating the video says every grocery store she's gone to looks like the one in her video.  To the extent there's food left, it's some random produce (which did not attract the marauders).  All the other food — fresh, refrigerated, frozen, or boxed — has been hurled to the floor and trampled.  The non-food aisles have also been ransacked.  Walking through aisle after aisle, she implores the person viewing the video to "look at this."

BLM protesters violently attack police cruisers in broad daylight in cities around the US.  When it comes to Black Lives Matter protests, the liberal media continues to sell the American people on the lofty ideas of racial equality while vilifying police officers on the front lines of the cultural rot seen in urban America.  Officers put their lives on the line to ensure law and order every time they put on the uniform, but that risk has gone up exponentially after the violent BLM riots over the past two weeks.  Cops have been attacked, shot and stabbed, and the attacks continue to this day — even as the media pushes a "peaceful protesters" narrative.

The Hodge Twins:  Black Lives Matter is a Leftist Lie!  In the first video, they object to the entire lie that "black lives" didn't matter until Black Lives Matter said they did, and that blacks are being killed by police at rate greater than any other race.  In the second video, they focus on some horrifying video of whites being killed by police.  You may [have] seen some of these; one was new to me.  As they say:  No one cares when the cops kill white people, because white people have not made this some kind of racist cult narrative, and also, because the [...] enemy of the state media doesn't bother reporting this [stuff].  CNN and the rest of the leftwing media only seize upon white-on-black killings, in order to — as the communists desired — divide America up along racial lines.  The second video is tough to watch but still worth it.

Disney Ditches Tucker Carlson Ads But Openly Collaborates With The Chinese Communist Party.  Disney has pulled all advertisements from Tucker Carlson's Fox News program.  But the company is willing to collaborate with the Chinese Communist Party which oppresses black people and has Muslims in concentration camps.  Disney's exodus from Tucker Carlson Tonight is the latest display of corporate virtue-signaling, prompted by the top-rated host refusing to mindlessly pledge allegiance to the Democrat-funding Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement in light of nationwide protests over George Floyd's death.  "This may be a lot of things, this moment we're living through, but it is definitely not about black lives," Carlson has noted.

Giant Black Lives Matter mural painted on Brooklyn street.  Brooklyn will get a giant Black Lives Matter mural similar to the one painted in yellow in downtown Washington, DC.  Artists, elected officials and others joined in painting the words along Fulton Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant Saturday [6/13/2020].  State Attorney General Letitia James tweeted a photo of herself with a paint roller in hand [...]

Black Lives Matter:  A Thing of the Left Anchored on a Cop-Hate Strategy.  Cop Hate is critical and central to BLM's strategy, because by vilifying the police, by portraying individual officers and departments in general as racist, despite clear evidence refuting "systemic" charges, it will achieve the objective of harming the principle of the rule of law.  That is vital.  And when that happens, the Left will strike and strike hard, and in many places, strike with impunity. [...] Key to BLM's strategy is suppressing free speech and dissent, by means of force and intimidation if necessary.  And so it has come to pass that if you stand on the sidewalk to oppose a protest, you will get a concrete shake bounced off your head, (the assailant will not be charged) and a tweet of repute will result in a pink slip.  The Orwellian media — a force multiplier for BLM's messaging — seems not to notice the suppression of free-speech rights.

Black Lives Matter forces whites to march in back of line: 'Systemic racism' lives.  Black Lives Matter wants white people to know their place — which is in the back of the line.  This holds even when whites are fighting to advance black causes.  The Seattle branch of Black Lives Matter held a protest march on Friday [6/12/2020], but specifically stated that white people must walk in the back like chattel.  Keep in mind that BLM comically claims to protest "systemic racism" and fight for racial equality while overtly segregating and marginalizing an entire race.  Black Lives Matter Seattle wrote on its website:  "Anti-Blackness is a greater threat to our survival.  It's killing us, and we are fighting to survive and thrive."

A New Silent Majority Is Coming.  Led by a media that is at once delusional and cynical — an eye-rolling combination — America is in the throes of a national madness.  Few are able to tell the truth — and when they do, they are attacked by the mob, not only in the street, but in the board room.  Just the other day, talk show host Tucker Carlson opened his mouth about the well-documented dishonest origins (the lie about Michael Brown) of Black Lives Matter and sent advertisers skittering like so many scared rabbits.  You have the sensation that people across the country are hiding what they really think for fear of repercussions, retribution that will destroy their lives and livelihood.  And they're not being stupid.  It could — and has.

Seattle 'autonomous zone' protesters accused of hijacking Black Lives Matter message.  The protesters who created an "autonomous zone" in Seattle have hijacked the Black Lives Matter message, according to a community council that works to foster relationships between black residents and police in the city.  The group, the African American Community Advisory Council, visited the Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone on Thursday [6/11/2020], and were booed by the crowd there when they voiced support for black police officers, KOMO News reported.  "Black lives do matter but there are also black lives that are police lives," one woman from the group said, according to the report.  "They feel the same way that you do."  "You guys need to sit down and have a conversation with the Seattle Police Department.  They want to talk to you," another woman from the group said.

Exploited Again — Financial Contributions to Black Lives Matter are Being Funneled to Biden Campaign.  Some smart sleuthing by Raheem Kassam and Natalie Winters at The National Pulse shows the donations made to Black Lives Matter actually go to ActBlue.  From there ActBlue takes those contributions and sends them forward to the Joe Biden Campaign.

The Complex Funding and Ideology of Black Lives Matter.  Political and corporate support for Black Lives Matter has become ubiquitous over the past week.  Everyone's email inbox is bulging with messages of support from corporate sponsors, every website is covered with Black Lives Matter logos, and the group has benefited from numerous fundraisers and charity sales.  But, many people might not realize that Black Lives Matter is a distinct political organization, not just a slogan or social media hashtag, and it has both enormous funding and a wide-ranging political agenda.

Starbucks faces boycott after banning employees from wearing BLM logos over fears 'it could incite violence'.  Starbucks faces a boycott after it publicly got behind the Black Lives Matter movement, but later told employees they're not allowed to wear BLM-inspired t-shirts or pins.  Store managers at the popular coffee chain relayed requests from employees who wanted to wear the clothes, but were told by superiors that it was against the company's dress code.  The managers also were told that BLM swag could potentially incite violence.

The Editor says...
The people who are most likely to be offended by BLM clothing are not the ones who are prone to violence.

Race Isn't Going Away.  [Scroll down]  There is no coherent strategy because there are no concrete goals.  And it's not like Black Lives Matters itself brings clarity.  How many people have been to the group's website, specifically the What We Believe section?  It can't be many because if more people had read it, the glaring omissions would have been called out.  There are zero mentions of 'fathers' and the only reference to 'men' is in regard to the dangers they present to women.  There are repeated statements about trans people and queer (their word) folks, and that's fine so far as it goes, but it seems strange that a movement founded over bad outcomes involving black men and law enforcement does not contain a single affirmation of males.  How do their lives matter when the group's own manifesto ignores them?

If You Don't Support Black Lives Matter, You're Fired.  There will be no opting out of the Black Lives Matter movement.  You're either for BLM or against it — and if you're against it, you're a racist.  You will either support BLM publicly and enthusiastically, or you will be harassed, shunned, and shamed out of mainstream America.  If you dare to speak a word against BLM, you will be targeted, mobbed, and probably fired.  That's the message coming through loud and clear, not just from protesters but from corporations and institutions desperate to seem woke enough to escape the wrath of the BLM movement.

Black Lives Matter Website, 'Defund The Police' Donations Go to 'Act Blue', The 'Biden For President' Campaign's Top Source of Donations.  The National Pulse can reveal the Black Lives Matter website — the organization spearheading nationwide "defund the police" campaigns — is partnered with ActBlue, a Democrat fundraising platform that is the top donor to Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, responsible for raising nearly 99.64 percent of the Biden for President effort.  While the Biden campaign insists it doesn't support efforts to defund the police, it may happily profit from Black Lives Matter (BLM) efforts, and is complicit in taking money from an organization partnered with those spearheading the dangerous policy that has already taken root in Minneapolis, New York, and Los Angeles.

BUSTED! DNC Gets Caught Laundering Money Through Black Lives Matter.  The Democratic National Committee and the Democrats are really as corrupt as they come.  It is absolutely unreal what they get away with.  Last year, we learned about a lot of overseas donations from foreign entities to Democrats including former presidential candidates such as Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Adam Schiff, but ther were a number of others as well.  It appears as though the website that it is an international money laundering scheme and a front for the DNC to generate money from people across the world.

Leaked 2015 Democrat Memo Warned Lawmakers 'Don't Offer Support' for 'Radical' Black Lives Matter.  A leaked 2015 internal Democrat Party memo warned top House Democrats not to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement because it was described by the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) as a "radical movement."  The memo, from then-DCCC official Troy Perry addressed to "DCCC Staff" on Thursday Nov. 19, 2015, noted that the Democrats' 2016 presidential candidates "have struggled to respond to tactics of the Black Lives Matter movement."  Perry was at the time he wrote this the DCCC's Director of Diversity and Public Engagement. [...] Perry warned recipients of his memo in the next line that it was top secret and confidential — not to be shared with anyone.  "This document should not be emailed or handed to anyone outside of the building," he wrote.  "Please only give campaign staff these best practices in meetings or over the phone."

BLM is a joke.  Her name is Nestride Yumga.  She is a D.C. resident who took to the streets to call out Black Lives Matters as "hypocrites."  [Video clip]

All black lives matter, but not all of them matter to Black Lives Matter.  Black lives matter.  That statement is undeniably true, but not all black lives matter to the group Black Lives Matter.  Apparently, retired police Capt. David Dorn of St. Louis was not worthy of the same outrage as George Floyd.  Dorn was gunned down by looters after answering an alarm at a pawnshop belonging to a friend.  Black Lives Matter was silent.  An arrest was made.  Black Lives Matter was silent.  As it turns out, it's not the life that matters to Black Lives Matter, it's the person who killed them.

Huh?  How many illegal aliens are black?
Black Lives Matter Demands Boston Spend $15M on Summer Jobs for Illegal Aliens.  The Boston, Massachusetts, chapter of Black Lives Matter (BLM) is asking that $15 million in American taxpayer money be spent on providing summer jobs to illegal aliens.  In a list of demands posted by the BLM Boston, the organization demands the city spend millions on creating thousands of summer jobs — some of which would be given to 14 to 22-year-old illegal aliens.

LA Rabbi:  Black Lives Matter Pogrom Was Like Kristalnacht.  While some LA synagogues are shamefully pandering to Black Lives Matter, one Rabbi is telling the truth about the BLM pogrom. [...] While too many Modern Orthodox organizations, including the OU and RCA, have issued statements pandering to the racist Black Lives Matter movement, and too many local synagogues have joined the anti-police mob, a Chabad Rabbi has some strong words for the ugly hatred on display in Los Angeles with the full complicity of the authorities.

Absolutely disgraceful!  Massachusetts police chief Michael Shaw crawls like a worm on the ground before BLM.  America, the world, is going nuts.  [Video clip]

D.C. Mayor and Democrats Take a Page Out of the Palestinian Authority's Playbook.  [Scroll down]  Washington, D.C.'s radical Mayor Muriel Bowser decided in her infinite wisdom to name the area in front of the White House "Black Lives Matter Plaza."  This is not a joke — and it cannot be missed since she brought in "artists" to paint in massive bright yellow letters those exact words (a street sign would have been classier but that was clearly not the message she was trying to achieve — and class is not her forte).  The mayor believes that the violence across her streets as well as much of America, and the perpetrators of much of that violence, deserve honor and recognition as she turns the criminals into martyrs in the form of renaming several blocks of our nation's capital.  And if that doesn't encourage the violence further, not only did Mayor Bowser throw the Utah National Guard, flown in to protect the citizens of the District, out of their hotel in an irresponsibly partisan and hateful move, the St. Louis prosecutor in charge of overseeing the crimes of protestors in her city decided it made sense to release them all back onto the streets.

D.C. artists create government-sanctioned 'Black Lives Matter' mural on popular protest location.  D.C. artists on Friday [6/5/2020] created, with the approval of the city, a "Black Lives Matter" mural stretching over two city blocks leading up to the White House after several days of large protests in the city and nationwide.  D.C. Public Works Department sanctioned and assisted with the project that stretches out on 16th Street NW between K and H streets, an area officially renamed as Black Lives Matter Plaza.  Mayor Muriel Bowser shared a video of the completed mural with the Black Lives Matter hashtag.

Washington DC Mayor Paints Giant 'Black Lives Matter' Message on Road to White House with Taxpayer Money — But Can't Stop Rioting.  Washington DC Mayor Bowser painted a giant 'Black Lives Matter' message on the street to the White House on Friday [6/5/2020].  The painting was commissioned by the far left mayor.  She can't control her streets from rioters but she can use taxpayer money to paint a slogan on the street to the White House.  This message in yellow paint spans two blocks on 16th Street to the White House.

Black Lives Matter DC Chapter Condemns Mayor Bowser's BLM Mural As A 'Distraction'.  The official BlackLivesMatter DC chapter recently tweeted their disappointment in response to a mural stating "Black Lives Matter" painted on the street in front of the White House calling it "counter organizing" to their demands.  "This is performative and a distraction from [Mayor Muriel Bowser's] active counter organizing to our demands to decrease the police budget and invest in the community.  Black Lives Matter means Defund the police," they replied to a tweet by Rachel Chason, a Washington Post reporter.

It takes an African black to understand what Black Lives Matter really is.  Nestride Yumga is an American citizen who originally comes from Africa.  She's also an extraordinarily brave woman.  On Sunday [5/31/2020], after one of the worst nights of rioting in modern American history, Yumga, who lives in Washington, D.C., decided to see the protests/riots for herself.  Contrary to what we've been told to expect from a black woman, though, Yumga did not go to support the protest.  Instead, she wanted the Black Lives Matter crowd to know that she thinks they're all a bunch of phonies and hypocrites.  As Yumga sees it, they don't care at all about black lives because they ignore the way blacks routinely mow each other down in Chicago.  Yumga believes that, by ignoring black-on-black crime, the BLM members are the racists[.]  In other words, BLM and its fellow travelers are opportunists trying to force victimhood on people to score political points.

Joe Biden Poses with Black Lives Matter in Wilmington as Left-Wing Terrorists Riot, Loot.  Joe Biden emerged from his basement and posed with Black Lives Matter protesters in Wilmington as rioters were looting businesses and razing buildings to the ground.  "You gotta get this crazy guy out of office," one protester said.  "Save us please.  You got my vote."

Black Lives Matter protesters blocked the 101 Freeway in LA.  As Ed wrote earlier, there were riots and looting in Minnesota last night in response to the death of George Floyd.  A spontaneous protest also broke out in Los Angeles with Black Lives Matter protesters walking onto the 101 freeway and blocking traffic.  Protesters became angry when they caught site of two LAPD cruisers.  Windows were smashed and one protesters was injured after he jumped on the hood of one of the cars.

In Minneapolis, a political attack aimed at conservatives turns on Democrats.  [Scroll down]  The hard-left BLM, however, has politicized all police activities that result in a minority's death, claiming that these deaths occurred solely because of rampant racism.  As I noted yesterday, there's a problem for the BLM movement and its enablers in the Democrat party (both the political class and the media).  Much as they would like to point the finger of blame at Republicans, conservatives and especially Trump, all these terrible things usually happen in Democrat-run communities.  The latest outbreak of BLMism is occurring in Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Minneapolis last had a Republican mayor in 1973.  The region is a bastion of leftist virtue-signaling. [...] Virtue-signaling, however, is not enough when it comes to a police department that has been embroiled in two high-profile deaths.  In 2017, a Somali-American police officer shot Justine Damond to death for no good reason.  BLM didn't care.  On Monday [5/25/2020], though, either because of deliberate or grossly negligent behavior, Minneapolis police killed 46-year-old George Floyd when an officer kneeled heavily on Floyd's neck while [Floyd] desperately fought for air.  Mayor Jacob Frey (a Democrat) instantly demanded criminal charges against the police, and police chief Medaria Arradonda (a black and Mexican-American man) fired the officers involved without any further inquiry.

BLM Activists Riot After NY Police Shoot Armed Man in Self-Defense.  One police officer in Newburgh, N.Y. was shot when trying to arrest an armed man wanted for questioning in a shooting.  Bodycam footage clearly shows the man armed with a silver handgun violently resisting arrest, drawing his gun, and shooting the officer before getting shot to death by the police.  Cut and dried case of police defending themselves?  Not if you're an activist wanting to stoke the fires of racial hatred.  Newburgh residents rioted that evening after a councilman-at-large, Omari Shakur, bitterly complained about police targeting blacks.

Black Lives Matter Member Elected To Lead Los Angeles' Largest Teachers Union.  A member of Black Lives Matter who was a keynote speaker at last year's DSA National Convention has been elected president of the largest teachers union in Los Angeles.  She's rallied against President Donald J. Trump.  She's pressured politicians to stop building new jails.  At a school board meeting in 2017, she took a knee during the Pledge of Allegiance.  Cecily Myart-Cruz captured almost 69% of the vote last week when union members picked her to lead United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA), which represents more than 30,000 educators, librarians, and counselors working in the nation's second-largest public school system.

Black Lives Matter activists offended when a black man defends himself with a gun.  Schadenfreude is not a very kind emotion, and it can veer dangerously into hubris.  Nevertheless, schadenfreude has to be the dominant emotion when a black Democrat who is married to Los Angeles's first black district attorney brandishes a gun at Black Lives Matter activists who showed up early in the morning to protest the D.A.'s belief that her job requires her to prosecute criminals.  In addition to Jackie Lacey, the D.A., and her husband, David, the prime actor in this drama is Melina Abdullah, who identifies herself on Twitter as a "Professor of Pan-African Studies at Cal State LA, #BlackLivesMatter organizer, Pan-Africanist, Hip Hop scholar, womanist, truth-teller, mama."  According to Abdullah's speaker's page, she is the ultimate woke scholar, for she is "a recognized expert on race, gender, class, and social movements." [...] And one more thing:  She's a bully who cries foul when people stand up to her.

Los Angeles DA's husband points a gun at Black Lives Matter protesters on his porch.  Black Lives Matter protesters say the husband of the Los Angeles County district attorney pointed a gun at them and threatened to open fire before sunrise Monday as they demanded a meeting with her at her home.  Authorities have not confirmed the activists' account regarding the events at the home of District Attorney Jackie Lacey.  In a video posted by Black Lives Matter organizer Melina Abdullah, a man pointing a black handgun opens the door and says: 'Get off.  Get off of my porch.'  The encounter came a day before a primary for district attorney; Lacey is seeking a third term.

'Rioting and vandalism is the American way': Black Lives Matter president blasts peaceful protest as 'a tool of white supremacy'.  The president of the Black Lives Matter movement in the Greater New York area has claimed that rioting is justified at protests because the 'American way' is through 'bullets and blood' not peaceful protest.  Hawk Newsome appeared on Fox Nation's 'No Interruption' on Wednesday [2/12/2020] speaking to host Tomi Lahren about Black Lives Matter and about recent anti-police protests in New York.  Newsome, who also appears in the cast of CopWatch America on Bet, told Lahren he would not condemn the destruction caused as it calls attention to the organization's grievances with society.

Black Lives Matter protests Christmas shopping in attempt to 'disrupt white capitalism'.  Honoring its six-year "Black Xmas" tradition, Black Lives Matter organized protests this Christmas season to disrupt holiday shoppers and encourage the disruption of so-called "white capitalism."  According to The Daily Wire, one such demonstration was held just this past weekend with nearly a thousand activists taking to the streets of Los Angeles in the organization's Mass March for Justice.  But the march was not all Black Lives Matter Los Angeles had planned in order to stick it to the man Sunday [12/22/2019].  Instead, the protesters proceeded to descend on the Hollywood & Highland shopping center in an attempt to "interrupt commerce on the weekend before Christmas" and end with a bang their month-long campaign advocating that holiday shopping no longer be done at upscale, white-owned businesses.

Black Lives Matter protester crashes Pete Buttigieg event in Indiana.  An event designed to showcase black support for Pete Buttigieg in Indiana went off the rails Wednesday night [12/4/2019] when a Black Lives Matter protester rushed the stage and was nearly clobbered by a cane-wielding senior citizen.  The fracas was caught on camera by local network WSBT 22, showing the protester, wearing a Black Lives Matter shirt, charging toward the front of the room where South Bend Councilwoman Sharon McBride was speaking.  "Who chose these people as black leaders?" the man yelled out — as a person in the audience stood up, positioned a cane over their head and took aim at the belligerent event crasher.  [Video clip]

Craziness Has Become Normal.  One day after Miss Kathy Zhu won the Miss Michigan pageant and a chance to compete for the title of Miss World America, she received notification that her victory had been cancelled.  Pageant organizers found out she had committed what they deemed to be unacceptable attitudes in her Twitter postings two years ago.  Responding to Black Lives Matter criticism of police, her comment to some members of BLM stated:  "Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks?  Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others."  Even the complainers from BLM have to know how correct she was.  But that didn't matter.

'Black Lives Matter' Comes For Mayor Pete, But They Still Don't Have A Point.  That South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg got waylaid by a group of Black Lives Matter protesters in his own hometown Friday following the fatal police shooting of an allegedly knife-wielding black man is testament to the fact that ideology and pandering will get you absolutely nowhere with these folks.  Buttigieg, you see, is gay, as liberal as they come, and totally on board with every insane 'social justice' redistribution scheme these Marx-lovers could possibly dream up, but despite all that, he remains a white male in a position of leadership in a town where a white police officer shot a black man.  In other words, he doesn't stand a chance.

Protestors ask Pete Buttigieg about black lives matter movement during heated confrontation.  The visibly angry crowd shouted at Buttigieg [6/21/2019] and questioned whether he believed "black lives matter." One protester asked if Buttigieg was "a racist."  When Buttigieg told the crowd he did "not have evidence that there has been discipline for racist behavior" a protestor responded "You running for president and you expect black people to vote for you?"  Buttigieg told her, "I'm not asking for your vote," to which she replied, "you ain't gonna get it either."

California Church Teams With ACLU, Sues Election Official Over Black Lives Matter Banners.  The ACLU Foundation of Northern California recently filed a lawsuit against an election official who removed a church as a polling site because of its visible support for the Black Lives Matter movement.  The court document alleges that Fresno County Registrar Brandi Orth unlawfully changed the voting location for last November's election, violating the free speech rights of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Fresno.

Injured Cop Will Be Allowed to Sue Black Lives Matter Leader.  The network of street and campus demagogues known as Black Lives Matter pretty much has operated with impunity since its founding.  But a court ruling late last month could make these social media-based grievance peddlers think twice before targeting cops.  On April 24, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit unanimously ruled that an injured Baton Rouge, La., police officer has legal standing to sue DeRay Mckesson (he prefers not to capitalize the "k"), Black Lives Matter's unofficial mouthpiece and most visible organizer.  Mckesson, the complaint read, in coaxing a large group of demonstrators to block traffic on a highway back on July 9, 2016, created the conditions for the attack on the officer, identified only as John Doe.  The decision overturns a district court ruling.  And it is the right call.

White Vermont Schools Display Black Lives Matter Flags.  In what appears to be a practice unique to Vermont, yet more of the Green Mountain State's schools have elected to officially fly the Black Lives Matter (BLM) flag.  Since Montpelier High School, in the state's capital, became the first public school in the nation to display this flag (for the month of February 2018), a number of other Vermont schools have followed suit.  Most recently, the Town of Rutland's public schools board "voted unanimously to fly the flag for 400 consecutive days starting April 12 — the 158th anniversary of the start of the Civil War."  Vermont is an odd venue for such protests.  The first state to abolish slavery (in 1777), Vermont had numerous residents serve and die in the Civil War.

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson loses defamation lawsuit against Jeanine Pirro.  A judge has tossed a defamation lawsuit filed by Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson against Jeanine Pirro on the grounds that the Fox News host specializes in "loud, caustic" opinion.  McKesson, who is also a noted speaker and podcast host, sued Pirro in December 2017 for claiming on-air that he had "directed" violence against a Baton Rouge police officer.  McKesson said that wasn't true.  Pirro argued that she was merely expressing the opinion that the injured officer could sue McKesson, arguing he is liable for the officer's injuries.

What to Do About Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  If our police and government continue to let the left get away with unjustified harassment and violence, then, growing bolder and more insolent, the left will only get a lot worse.  At some point, citizens themselves will push back where police and government have failed them.  This is a terrifying situation, the stuff of which civil war is made.

BLM and Antifa Agitators Take Over Street in Portland to Protest Police Shooting.  Portland authorities allowed a small group of Black Lives Matter and antifa protesters to take over a busy street in downtown Portland over the weekend, where they redirected traffic and bullied drivers — and it wasn't for the first time.  For the past week and a half, left-wing activists have been protesting the shooting death of Patrick Kimmons, who was fatally shot by police officers after being involved in a gang-related shooting that left two people wounded on Sept. 30.

Black Lives Matter protesters crash police officer's wedding: 'You're a murderer!'  Black Lives Matter protesters on Saturday [8/4/2018] crashed the wedding venue of one of the two police officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark in Sacramento earlier this year.  A small group of protesters tracked down the officer's wedding at a vineyard about an hour outside of Sacramento and showed up just hours before he was set to say, "I do," a local CBS affiliate reported.  Video posted on Facebook by Sacramento Black Lives Matter showed the protesters accosting the officer, who police have not identified due to safety concerns, while he was gathered in a room with his groomsmen.

Black Lives Matter Gets Black People Killed.  Black Lives Matter has been accused of demonizing police and heightening racial tensions.  I agree with those criticisms, but the movement has an even more basic problem.  It threatens black lives.  Homicide rates have gone up recently, but the violence hasn't been spread evenly: of the increase in killings last year, around a third took place in largely African American areas of Chicago.  Baltimore saw more bloodshed too.  Both cities would benefit from the sort of proactive policing that helped reduce New York's crime rates in the early 90's.  But thanks to #BLM, they're unlikely to get it.

Black Lives Matter Activist Accused of Lying About His Race.  Is this a repeat of the Rachel Dolezal scandal?  Prominent Black Lives Matter protester and DailyKos columnist Shaun King has been accused of falsely claiming to be biracial when he is in fact white.  Trace Gallagher reported on "The Kelly File" that King has claimed for years that his mother is white and his father is black.  Recently, conservative media outlets, including Breitbart, The Blaze and The Daily Caller, have claimed that King is not black at all and has been lying to everyone from his fellow activists to Oprah Winfrey.

Facebook's Largest Black Lives Matter Page Is a Scam Tied to a White Labor Activist.  The largest Black Lives Matter page on Facebook is actually a scam tied to a white man in Australia that funneled money to Australian bank accounts, according to a report published Monday [4/9/2018].  The page "Black Lives Matter" had nearly 700,000 followers, more than twice as much as the official page for the Black Lives Matter protest movement.  The page owners also ran another Facebook Group with the same name, "Black Lives Matter," which had almost 40,000 members, the largest Facebook group for the movement.  But, according to a CNN investigation, the page linked to several online fundraisers that brought in "at least $100,000 that supposedly went to Black Lives Matter causes in the U.S.," only then to funnel the money to Australian bank accounts.

Popular Black Lives Matter Facebook page exposed as fraud.  A fraudulent Black Lives Matter page on Facebook run by a white Australian man amassed 700,000 followers and $100,000 in donations before it was shut down by the tech company.  The real, verified Black Lives Matter page on Facebook has over 320,000 followers.  The unofficial page was reportedly being run by a man named Ian Mackay, a National Union of Workers official in Australia, and was administered by two anonymous profiles that had domains linking to Mackay, reports CNN.

The biggest Black Lives Matter page on Facebook is fake.  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, CNN has learned.

Black Lives Matter leader demands law school fire 'racist' prof — or face major campus disruptions.  The sticking point is a September video interview in which Wax told Brown University Professor Glenn Loury, "I don't think I've ever seen a black student graduate in the top quarter of the class and rarely, rarely in the top half.  I can think of one or two students who've scored in the top half of my required first-year course."

Black Lives Matter threatens to wreak havoc at Penn if conservative professor isn't fired.  Black Lives Matter is sometimes criticized for using illiberal methods to advance its goals.  The movement's top leader in Pennsylvania, Asa Khalif, isn't shying away from that reputation.  He threatened to "begin disrupting classes and other campus activities with a wave of protests" starting Friday if the University of Pennsylvania doesn't fire a professor it has already punished for comments about black student performance, The Philadelphia Tribune reports.  Khalif said Wax is a "danger" to "Black and brown students" because the professor said "I don't think I've ever seen a black student graduate in the top quarter of the [law school] class, and rarely, rarely in the top half," in an interview in September.

Al Sharpton's Group And Black Lives Matter Team Up For Pro-Farrakhan Protest.  Several black activist groups are holding a protest on Monday in defense of Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, a notorious anti-Semite and racist revealed to have close ties to prominent Democratic politicians and activists.  Black Lives Matter, the New Black Panther Party and the National Action Network are among the groups spearheading the protest, the organizers said in a press release.  The groups are protesting a House resolution, introduced by Republican Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita, that formally condemns Farrakhan's anti-Semitism.  The activists instead want lawmakers to pass a resolution condemning President Donald Trump.

BLM Leader Pleads To More Sex Abuse Charges.  Last week we reported that Micah Rhodes, one of the Black Lives Matter organizers in Portland, was found guilty of sex abuse charges in Washington county, adjacent to Portland.  Rhodes has now plead guilty to another sex abuse charge in Multnomah County, this time involving an underage boy that he hooked up with via the Grindr app.

Vermont High School Becomes First in Nation to Raise 'Black Lives Matter' Flag.  A high school in Vermont on Thursday [2/1/2018] marked the beginning of Black History Month by raising a Black Lives Matter flag.  Montpelier High School is the first high school in the country to do so, WPTZ confirms.  The event took place Thursday morning in front of students from across the school district, faculty, and community members.

Black Lives Matter Infiltrates Public Schools with Globalism, Diversity, 'Queer-Affirming,' Common Core.  The Black Lives Matter movement is using Black History Month as a vehicle to insert its agenda into public schools across the country, using curriculum for elementary and middle school students that includes teaching diversity, globalism, and "queer affirming" lessons — all in formats conforming to the controversial Common Core framework.  The Progressive website reported on the Feb. 5-9 National Black Live Matter Week of Action in Our Schools taking place this year at schools in Seattle (where the movement started), Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Boston, New York City, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.

Black Lives Matter Goes to the Olympics.  Race became the National Football League theme this year, as a bunch of privileged young athletes, being paid millions of dollars for playing a game, supported by an organization worth $75 billion, found it necessary to take a knee against the National Anthem.  There they were, protesting the very country leaving them on the winning end of such income inequality.  The NFL season, thankfully, is in our rearview mirror for the next six months.  Ahead is the Winter Olympics.

Black Lives Matter Leader Shot Dead.  The Black Lives Matter leader known for diving over a barrier to snatch a Confederate flag from a protester on live TV last year was shot dead in New Orleans, police said.  Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, who went by Muhiyidin d'Baha, was found dead Tuesday morning [2/6/2018] after being shot in the thigh while riding his bicycle, the Advocate reported.  New Orleans police spokesman Beau Tidwell said no information about a potential motive or suspects was immediately available.

Police Remove Activists Blocking Way to US Bank Stadium.  Police in Minneapolis have removed protesters who locked themselves across a light-rail line near U.S. Bank Stadium, temporarily halting trains carrying fans to the game.  Activists protesting police brutality chained themselves along the Green Line carrying ticketholders to the Super Bowl on Sunday [2/4/2018], stopping trains in both directions.  In a release Sunday afternoon, organizers said Black Lives Matter, the Movement for Black Lives and other groups shut down light rail at "several critical transit lines in Minneapolis" starting about 2:30 p.m.  It was unclear how many lines were affected.

Activists make the case for 'a world without prisons' in new Black Lives Matter memoir.  Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele, authors of the new book When They Call You a Terrorist:  A Black Lives Matter Memoir, are self-described "prison abolitionists." [...] Khan-Cullors, a cofounder of the Black Lives Matter hashtag and subsequent movement, called upon acclaimed journalist and author Bandele to compose the memoir.  The pages reveal the racial profiling and police brutality that Khan-Cullors and her family have experienced, the circumstances that led to the formation of one of the most controversial civil rights movements, and the way in which her narrative of black liberation has been branded as "terrorism."

Black Lives Matter Calls For Racist Boycott Of 'White Capitalism' This Christmas.  Black Lives Matter is calling for a racist boycott of "white capitalism" this Christmas, saying on its website this means spending no money with any white-owned business.

Black Lives Matter Activist Sues Fox News, Jeanine Pirro.  Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson sued Fox News host Jeanine Pirro Tuesday, claiming she defamed him on national television by saying he'd incited violence against police.  McKesson's action is one of a series of lawsuits stemming from BLM protests in Louisiana against 2016 shooting of Alton Sterling.  McKesson, who was arrested at the protest but had his charges dismissed, received more than $100,000 in damages from Baton Rouge police, according to the New York Daily News.  One police officer filed a counter-suit, however, claiming protesters had thrown rocks at him and that McKesson had incited the violence.

Is the Star Spangled Banner Racist?  The objective genius writers and editors at — supported by a lecturer in the Department of African American studies at the University of Maryland who really should know better — are busy parroting the latest far-left Only Black Lives Matter non-historians who have recently discovered pro-slavery references in what is now being claimed to be a racist National Anthem.  And they'd be right, too, except that's not what Francis Scott Key was writing about.  Not at all.  Salon might be forgiven for not knowing this, but Professor Jason Nichols really should (and possibly does) know better.

Poll: Blacks want Colin Kaepernick to lead Black Lives Matter.  Eight of 10 African Americans believe that the Black Lives Matter movement is effective but feel it could have even greater impact if it wasn't so splintered and instead led by a national spokesman like former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, according to a new survey.  The poll from Northwestern University's Center for the Study of Diversity and Democracy also found that a majority of blacks want the group to focus itself on core issues.

Police-focused NFL protests overlook rising, disproportionate black homicide rate.  Lost in the uproar over the NFL sideline protests against police brutality are newly released statistics showing that the threat to black men is skyrocketing — not from trigger-happy or racist cops, but from crime.  More than any other demographic group, black men are paying the price with their lives with a surging violent crime rate over the past two years, including a 20 percent jump in the overall homicide rate, even as the number of blacks killed by police declines.  Using homicide figures from the 2016 FBI Uniform Crime Report released Sept. 25, Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald found that the number of black homicide victims has jumped by nearly 900 per year since the Black Lives Matter movement took root in 2014.  "The majority of victims of that homicide surge have been black," Ms. Mac Donald said in an email.  "They were killed overwhelmingly by black criminals, not by the police and not by whites."

CNN Reports Russian Facebook Ads Promoted Black Lives Matter.  Before some of you get too excited, there is still zero proof of any collusion between the Russians and the Trump campaign.  There is still zero proof the Russians in any way "hacked the 2016 election."  There is still zero proof the Russians changed a single vote in 2016.  According to CNN, though, what we do have proof of is that in late 2015 and early 2016, the Russians used Facebook ads to promote Black Lives Matter.  Moreover, the report also says that the Russians' overall goal in Ferguson and Baltimore was pretty much the same as CNN's overall goal in Ferguson and Baltimore — to stir up division and chaos.

Black Lives Matter Students Shut Down the ACLU's Campus Free Speech Event Because 'Liberalism Is White Supremacy'.  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 disruption was livestreamed on BLM at W&M's Facebook page.  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."

Tackling Race.  Some National Football League players are supporting Black Lives Matter — the anti-police, pro-rioter, anti-white, pro-Establishment movement — by boycotting the national anthem before games.  The president was widely denounced for tweeting his disapproval of them.  On Monday [9/25/2017], however, the FBI released 2016 crime statistics showing that homicides were up an extraordinary 20 percent nationally during the last two years of the Obama administration, when the former president was pushing his BLM agenda.  The spike in murders tended to be concentrated in cities where BLM enjoyed its greatest triumphs, such as Baltimore and Chicago.  In other words, the ironically named Black Lives Matter has gotten several thousand additional blacks murdered by other blacks since Ferguson.

Russian "Meddling" Promoted Black Lives Matter.  It is an article of faith among liberals that Russian "meddling" in the 2016 election — the word that is always used — was of world-historical significance.  But what exactly the Russians did has been murky.  Maybe they spearphished the DNC's email account and tried unsuccessfully to spearphish the RNC's account, although Julian Assange — who should know, but is an unreliable witness — apparently denies that claim.  Beyond that, the Russians are accused of publishing anti-Hillary stories on the web site and planting fake news on Facebook and Twitter.  That part of the story is becoming a little clearer, as Facebook has now disclosed to Congress 470 accounts that have been traced back to Russian origins.  It turns out that the Russians were trying to stir up race hatred by supporting Black Lives Matter through an account called Blacktivist.  Unlike most of what has been attributed to the Russians, Blacktivist was rather important:  its Facebook account had 360,000 likes, compared with the verified Black Lives Matter account which currently has 301,000.  Blacktivist peddled the same kind of race hatred as Black Lives Matter.

Judge: Black Lives Matter is a movement that can't be sued.  Black Lives Matter is a social movement, like the tea party or the civil rights movement, and therefore can't be sued, a federal judge ruled Thursday.  A police officer anonymously sued Black Lives Matter and DeRay Mckesson, a prominent activist in the movement, after being injured by a rock thrown during a protest over a deadly police shooting in Baton Rouge last year.  But U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson dismissed the officer's suit and ruled that Black Lives Matter is not an entity capable of being sued.

Who Truly Imperils Our Free Society?  On Sunday [9/17/2017], Black Lives Matter showed up at the St. Louis' police headquarters chanting, "Stop killing us!"  But if the killing of black folks is a legitimate grievance, we need to ask:  Who is killing them?  Last year, there were 4,300 victims of shootings in Chicago and 762 deaths.  How many of those shootings were by cops?  How many of those shootings, mostly of blacks, were acts of "terrorism by White supremacists, White nationalists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan," all of whom our ever-heroic Congress demanded that President Trump, in a joint resolution after Charlottesville, denounce.

The Mistake of Pandering to Antifa and Black Lives Matter.  Since the election of Obama, being black is in vogue like never before.  Everywhere you turn, American businesses and whites are walking on eggshells, pandering to blacks.  This is an undeniable truth that I am not allowed to say out loud, especially as a black person.

Police-in-schools program halted as Black Lives Matter objects.  A program that puts police officers inside Toronto's public schools to protect students has been temporarily scrapped following complaints by Black Lives Matter and pro-immigration groups.  The School Resource Officers program has been in place since 2008.  It was started in response to the 2007 fatal shooting of 15-year-old student Jordan Manners, the first death in a Toronto school.  On Wednesday night [8/30/2017], trustees with the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) voted to temporarily suspend the program following months campaigning by a local chapter of Black Lives Matter and other left-leaning groups, the CBC reported.

Black Lives Matter Leader Demands 10 Things From White People.  Black Lives Matter arose to fight racism and police brutality — or so they claim.  There's an obvious anti-police mentality, which activists will say is because black people are being targeted by racist police officers and become victims of violence.  But is there more to it than that?  Judging by the list of this Black Lives Matter leader's demands, it seems like the answer is yes.

Black Lives Matter Founder Claims Trump Is Trying To Commit Hitler-Like Genocide.  The co-founder of Black Lives Matter believes President Trump is "literally" trying to "kill our communities" on a scale comparable to Adolf Hitler.  "We wouldn't as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn't have done that with Hitler.  Trump is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country, be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia and he has set out the most dangerous policies not just that impacts this country but that impacts the globe," Patrisse Cullors, one of BLM's three co-founders, told the Los Angeles Times in a Friday [8/25/2017] interview.

Where Is the Corporate Disavowal of Black Lives Matter?  Liberal business executives are leaping like lemmings from President Donald Trump's manufacturing advisory council.  Good riddance.  These silly string-spined CEOs have sided with social justice agitators, Beltway media enablers and Democratic resistance knuckleheads who believe Trump was wrong to condemn violence and hatred on all sides of the political spectrum.  Never mind that of the four people arrested after the violent outbreak in Charlottesville, Virginia, this weekend, two were identified with the white nationalist movement and the other two were left-wing "antifa" counterprotesters.  One of those radical leftists is the man identified as having reportedly punched a female reporter for the D.C.-based newspaper, The Hill.  But since that doesn't fit the national media narrative of journalists allegedly being victimized by right-wing incitements to violence, mum's the word from corporate media executives and the rest of the preening CEOs.

Police union president faces death threats after criticizing 'Black Lives Matter'.  Many folks in the Black Lives Matter movement aren't interested in facts.  It's a lesson Cincinnati Fraternal Order of Police President Dan Hils learned the hard way.  Hours before a mob of Black Lives Matter agitators took to the streets on Saturday [7/22/2017] to protest the death of Sam DuBose — a black man killed by a University of Cincinnati officer two years ago — Hils attempted to provide some perspective.  In a Facebook post addressed to "Black Lives Matter Protesters," Hils wrote that "I have the list of the homicide victims in the city of Cincinnati in 2017.  As of July 17th, there have been 39 homicides.  Of those homicides, 32 of the 39 victims were black."

Seriously Injured Cop Sues Black Lives Matter — Does He Have A Case?  Many Americans believe Black Lives Matter is a domestic terror group that's been given cover by the media and our former President Barack Obama, who gave them credibility when more than once, he invited them to meet at the White House.  Obama also pretended there was no connection to BLM and several police officers who were murdered by supporters of BLM.

Wounded Louisiana Police Officer Sues Black Lives Matter Clowns for Inciting Violence.  We're not sure if he'll have any success, but we hope he bankrupts these leftwing agitators.

Black Lives Matter leaders sued over Baton Rouge police shooting.  A police officer wounded in a shooting rampage in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, last year that left three officers dead sued Black Lives Matter movement leaders on Friday [7/7/2017], accusing them of inciting violence that spurred the attack.  The lawsuit filed in a U.S. district court in Louisiana named DeRay McKesson and four other Black Lives Matter leaders as defendants and sought at least $75,000 in damages.

Black Lives Matter are Outraged Over a Huge Sign in Texas.  Black Lives Matter got started as a way to protest police brutality, an idea that would seem to be unoffensive.  Yet not everyone can get on board — many people dislike Black Lives Matter, due to their violent protests, frequent riots, and calls for violence against police.  Still, speaking out against the group is still often frowned upon, and using the phrase "all lives matter" gets liberal activists really riled up, as one Texas restaurant found out firsthand.

Black Lives Matter Halts Toronto Gay Pride Parade.  If you ask a social justice jihadi, everyone besides straight white males is oppressed, period.  But Leftist groups that don't fit one of those descriptors are lately engaged in a battle for oppression supremacy, which PhD sociologists with no other marketable skills refer to as "intersectionality."  For those of us who prefer fact- and evidence-based reasoning, it's hysterical to watch these Oppression Olympics take place — such as when Black Lives Matter halted the Toronto gay pride parade to air their grievances.

The Black Lives Matter movement was awarded a global peace prize.  "This is the first time that a movement and not a person has been awarded the peace prize — a timely choice," the Sydney Peace Foundation said when announcing the award.  "Climate change is escalating fast, increasing inequality and racism are feeding divisiveness, and we are in the middle of the worst refugee crisis since World War II.  Yet many establishment leaders across the world stick their heads in the sand or turn their backs on justice, fairness and equality."

Marvel cancels anti-police Black Lives Matter comic due to poor sales.  Aspiring racist comic book writer and McArthur genius grant recipient Ta-Nehisi Coates' latest bid for comic book social justice sold so badly that even Marvel couldn't justify keeping it afloat.  And Marvel will keep anything social justice afloat.

Seething Mob Shuts Down Speech by Pro-Cop Writer Heather Mac Donald as Event Turns Violent.  An "angry mob" of protesters effective shut down a speech by a pro-law enforcement scholar at Claremont McKenna College on Friday [4/7/2017], surrounding the building, screaming obscenities and banging on windows.  Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald, who is promoting a book called The War on Cops about the Black Lives Matter movement, was forced to give her speech on livestream — to a largely empty room — and then to flee the University building under the protection of campus security when things got really scary.

The Soros-Obama Axis of Chaos.  Following the massive destruction inflicted on Baltimore by Black Lives Matter in 2015 associated with the death of Freddy Gray, Soros's organization, Open Society Institute, donated $650,000 to BLM.  And Soros's organizing mass demonstrations to oppose a conservative government is also something we've seen close to home.  According to no less an authority than the New York Times, Soros funded 50 "partner" organizations to protest the election of Donald Trump in the "Women's March on Washington."

Black Lives Matter Philly Bans White People From Its Meetings.  Black Lives Matter Philly banned white people from an upcoming event, claiming it is a "black only space."  The April 15 meeting plans to discuss projects and initiatives for the upcoming year and act as a place for people to "meet, strategize and organize."  While children are invited to attend, white people are explicitly banned from the meeting, according to the Facebook event page.  When people began questioning the ban on whites over Twitter, Black Lives Matter Philly stayed by their ban, explaining that their meetings are "black centered."

College President Tells Black Lives Matter Students To Take A Hike.  W. Taylor Reveley III, the president of the College of William & Mary in Virginia, had no use for political correctness or mealy-mouthed words when a group of Black Lives Matter students issued demands to him, telling them, "I don't deal in demands."

Black Lives Matter Leader:  White People Are Sub-Human.  The co-founder of Black Lives Matter's Toronto chapter believes white people are "recessive genetic defects" and sub-human.  Yusra Khogali wrote on Facebook that "Whiteness is not humxness" and that "white skin is sub-humxn," according to The Toronto Sun.  (Khogali intentionally misspells "human" in order to eliminate "man" from the word, a common practice among left-wing feminists.)  She goes on to say that white people are "recessive genetic defects" who "need white supremacy to protect their survival as a people."

Black Lives Matter Protesters Block Education Sec.  DeVos From Entering DC Public School.  Black Lives Matter protesters blocked Trump Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering a Washington, D.C. public school Friday [2/10/2017].  According to WJLA, DeVos attempted to enter the Jefferson Academy but Black Lives Matter protesters, organized by the Washington Teacher's Union blocked the entry way while heckling her, she turned around and returned to her car. [...] DeVos attempted to enter early Friday morning [2/10/2017] after the gathering was organized by the Washington teacher's Union.

Leftist agitators physically block EdSec DeVos from entering DC school.  The "tolerant left" strikes again.  Left-wing agitators and "Black Lives Matter" supporters physically blocked Education Secretary Betsy DeVos from entering a Washington, D.C. school on Friday.  DeVos was forced to turn away and leave but she did eventually get into the school according to ABC7.  [Video clip]

Trump Overseeing the Destruction of the Democrat Coalition.  [Scroll down]  The "KKKrazy glue" that holds the Democrats together is starting to dry out.  Last week's Women's March on Washington was the biggest anti-Trump demonstration yet.  There was just one problem:  the conspicuous absence of minorities.  Various Black Lives Matter groups spoke out about the absence of colored attendees.  Even before the event, the predominately white presence behind the march was a big point of contention among organizers.  One BLM activist took to Instagram to lecture white women on their inherent privilege and demanded they start "listening more, talking less, spend time observing, taking in media and art created by people of color, researching, and unlearning the things you have been taught about this country."  So much for feminine togetherness!

Preschool teacher is caught on camera spewing obscenities to Black Lives Matter demonstrators.  An activist associated with the Black Lives Matter movement took to the megaphone to spew obscenities and voice her support for killing people.  At 1:50 in the video, shot on January 29 during an anti-Trump protest in Seattle's Westlake Park, the unidentified woman wearing a jacket with Black Lives Matter written on the back rants:  'And we need to start killing people.  First off, we need to start killing the White House', says the woman, who claims she's a preschool teacher.  [Video clip]

The #BlackLivesMatter Torture Film.  Black Lives Matter movement hero DeRay Mckesson rushed to Twitter Thursday morning [1/5/2017] to make excuses for his comrades-in-arms.  "It goes without saying that the actions being branded by the far-right as the 'BLM Kidnapping' have nothing to do [with] the movement."  He's lying.  This is exactly what Black Lives Matter stands for.  Its supporters lionize those who murder cops and white people.  At their marches, they carry signs reading, "End White Supremacy."  America, they claim, is systemically racist.  In other words, white people are racist and evil.

Former Chicago police chief blasts Black Lives Matter.  Former Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy on Sunday blamed the Black Lives Matter movement for causing a rise in violent crime around the country.  During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on AM 970 in New York, McCarthy blamed protests against police brutality in cities like Baltimore, Ferguson, Mo., and Charlotte, N.C., for creating a "political atmosphere of anti-police sentiment."  "So what's happening, and this is ironic, is that a movement with the goal of saving black lives at this point is getting black lives taken, because 80 percent of our murder victims here in Chicago are male blacks," McCarthy said.  "Less than half of 1 percent of all the shootings in this city involve police officers shooting civilians."

Black Lives Matter offshoot embraces anti-Semitism, engages with terrorists.  Over the Christmas weekend, Chicago surpassed the 750-murder mark for 2016.  But as blacks lay dying on the streets of Chicago's South and West Sides, a Black Lives Matter offshoot is more interested in traveling overseas to learn "resistance" from terrorists.  The Dream Defenders bills itself as "an uprising of communities in struggle, shifting culture through transformational organizing."  But an investigation conducted by the Haym Salomon Center reveals the group's embrace of anti-Semitism and collaboration with a State Department-designated terror group.  In August, Black Lives Matter singled out Israel for condemnation, declaring it an "apartheid" state engaged in "genocide."

Black Lives Matter On Christmas:  Why Do African-Americans Celebrate 'White Supremacy' Holiday?  As many fortunate Americans look back on their holiday weekends with dismay over their tryptophan Turkey hangovers and uptick in their monthly credit card statements, the Black Lives Matter chapter in Atlanta was wondering why black people celebrate Christmas at all.  The group referred to Christmas as a corporate holiday rather than a religious one.  Black Lives Matter in Atlanta took to Twitter Sunday to raise the question:  Since white people do not celebrate black holidays, why are black people so willing to celebrate Christmas?  Black Lives Matter has said the holiday is predominately white, Heat Street reported.

Fraternal Order of Police demands Amazon remove Black Lives Matter merchandise.  The largest police union in the U.S. demanded that Amazon remove a shirt from a third-party vendor that supports the Black Lives Matter movement.  The Fraternal Order of Police wants the online retailer to follow Walmart and remove a shirt that sports the words "Bulletproof:  Black Lives Matter" across the chest, The Guardian reported Friday.  Walmart removed the shirt from its store after the union called it "offensive."  FOP President Chuck Canterbury wrote in a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to support the union in "increasing the bonds of trust between the men and women of law enforcement and the communities they serve."

Walmart to pull 'Black Lives Matter' T-shirt after complaint from America's largest police union.  Black Lives Matter T-shirts only matter so much to Walmart.  The retail chain announced Tuesday it will stopping selling a Black Lives Matter shirt on its website after the country's largest police union demanded its removal and accused the company of "profiting from racial division."

2016 was a deadly year for cops — and BLM may be to blame.  Blue lives matter — now as much as ever.  It was Dec. 20, 2014.  As New York City Police Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu sat in their squad car in Brooklyn, suddenly and without warning, they were ambushed by gun-wielding assassin Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28.  The madman had driven from Baltimore to the city, ranting on Instagram that he planned to put "wings on pigs" to avenge the deaths at the hands of police of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.  The deranged murderer then fled into a nearby subway station, where he committed suicide by gun as cops closed in.  The loss of the two fine men in blue, who were posthumously promoted to detectives, struck terror into hearts all over the city and brutalized two families, never to recover.

Seminaries Are Now Teaching Students About Black Lives Matter.  Seminaries throughout the U.S. have begun to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement in their theology courses.  The New York Theological Seminary had a master's class on the subject for its Fall 2016 semester, reports Religion News.  The class, taught by Professors Dale Irvin and C. Vernon Mason, covered Black Lives Matter, as well as mass incarceration, policing and white privilege.  "What is #Black Lives Matter about, what are some of its precedents, especially in theology?  What have been some of the theological responses to date, and what more do we still need to say?  What are the implications for ministry in our diverse communities today?" The course description reads.

Louisiana sheriff unleashes on Black Lives Matter movement.  A press conference that was meant to discuss the arrest of Ronald Gasser for the shooting of Joe McKnight turned into an attack on members of the Black Lives Matter movement, the media and members of the public in general on Tuesday [12/6/2016].  Sheriff Newell Normand of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office made no comments about the actual event that led to the shooting of McKnight during his initial remarks, and instead loudly criticized those who called the shooting racially motivated, and who questioned his department's decision to release Gasser that day after the incident.

Kellogg Foundation Provided Nearly $1 Million to Support Black Lives Matter.  The W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which maintains strong financial ties to the Kellogg Company, has provided at least $930,000 in support of the controversial work of the Black Lives Matter organization.  The financing is listed on the Foundation's website.  It includes a June 1, 2016 grant to the International Development Exchange, which is in a contractual relationship with Black Lives Matter to process donations for the group.

Democrats, Not Trump, Racialize Our Politics.  The most absurd Democratic meme to emerge from the party's ballot-box defeat is the claim that it is Donald Trump, rather than Democrats, who engages in "aggressive, racialized discourse," in the words of a Los Angeles Times op-ed.  By contrast, President Barack Obama sought a "post-racial, bridge-building society," according to New York Times reporter Peter Baker.  Obama's post-racial efforts have now "given way to an angry, jeering, us-against-them nation," writes Baker, in a front-page "news" story.  Tell that valedictory for "post-racial bridge-building" to police officers, who have been living through two years of racialized hatred directed at them in the streets, to the applause of many Democratic politicians.

Black Lives Matter demonstrate during Seattle tree lighting.  Nearly 1,000 people protested in what has become an annual protest on Black Friday in downtown Seattle, CBS affiliate KIRO reports.  Black Lives Matter demonstrators gathered at Westlake Center to disrupt holiday shopping.  They marched from downtown to South Lake Union, where the protest ended.

Black Lives Matter praises Fidel Castro in article about the 'overwhelming sense of loss' after his death.  Black Lives Matter has come out in support of communist dictator Fidel Castro following his death.  The movement posted said they felt an 'overwhelming sense of loss' of the death of the controversial former Cuban leader on Friday.

Black Lives Matter Plans To Block White-Owned Businesses On Black Friday.  Black Lives Matter and other groups plan to block white-owned Chicago stores on Black Friday [11/25/2016] to bring awareness about police shootings, economic issues and alleged racism.  Local churches, Black Lives Matter and the Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression will block stores along Michigan Avenue and prevent customers from entering stores for the second year in a row, reports Crain's Chicago Business.  A big part of the protest is to force on people that it's important to shop at businesses that aren't owned by white men, Kimberly Veal, a leader of Black Lives Matter, said.  It's not yet known who owns the businesses that will be targeted as part of this effort.

Black Lives Matter Activists Plan to Disrupt Black Friday Shopping in Major Cities.  Black Lives Matter agitators plan to disrupt Black Friday shopping in at least two cities this year in an attempt to draw attention to what they call unjustified police shootings.  Organizers in Chicago and Seattle are planning demonstrations that they hope will attract thousands of protesters.  In Seattle, as many as 2,700 people may attend a Black Lives Matter protest downtown on Black Friday, according to a Facebook page set up by the "Black Freedom Front of Seattle."

Baton Rouge agrees to pay Black Lives Matter protesters $100,000.  Ninety-two protestors who were arrested last summer while demonstrating after Alton Sterling was shot and killed by police in Baton Rouge, La., will receive financial compensation from local and state authorities, whom the activists accused of excessive force and violating their constitutional rights to freedom of speech and assembly.  Rather than proceed to trial in a federal class action lawsuit filed by the arrested protestors, the Baton Rouge Metro Council approved a settlement Tuesday, agreeing to have four agencies pay prominent Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson and fellow plaintiffs about $100,000 in total.

BLM: The Black Man's KKK.  A lawsuit, filed Nov. 7 against Black Lives Matter, may soon reveal the evil lurking in the hearts of the group's founders, promoters and financial supporters.  Among others, the suit names as defendants leaders of the Nation of Islam (Louis Farrakhan) and the New Black Panthers Party (Malik Zulu Shabazz) as well as Rev. Al Sharpton, the National Action Network (NAM) and business magnate George Soros.  The plaintiff is the father of Dallas police officer Patrick Zamarippa, 32, who, on July 7, 2016, while protecting BLM protesters during an anti-police-brutality demonstration, was ambushed and killed by a sniper.

Law, Order, and Trump.  Black Lives Matter helped propel Donald Trump's unforeseen ascent to the White House.  The public understood the threat to law and order posed by the movement's calumnies about the nation's police — and so, uniquely in the presidential race, did Trump.  Trump repeatedly promised to end what he rightly called the "false narrative" about the police that was leading to rising homicides and urban riots.  During the first presidential debate with Hillary Clinton in September 2016, Trump correctly pointed out that "right now, our police, in many cases, are afraid to do anything." [...] By contrast, Hillary Clinton embraced the Black Lives Matter movement.  She regularly accused the nation's cops of systemic, lethal racism.  Last July, when the toll of officers murdered by Black Lives Matter-inspired assassins had reached five in that one month alone, Clinton told the NAACP that we need to "root out implicit [police] bias and stop the killings of African-Americans."

War on Police:  Father of Executed Dallas Cop Sues BLM, Soros.  The father of one of the officers executed in Dallas in July at a Black Lives Matter protest filed a lawsuit on Monday against Black Lives Matter, Rev. Al Sharpton, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, and others charging that they inflamed and inspired a "War on Police."

Why did CBS News Not Cover 'Black Lives Matter' Vandalism at Trump's DC Hotel?  In searching the internal search engines at ABC News, CNN, CBS News, and NBC News, in addition to search terms on Google "Trump Tower vandalism [news outlet name]," we could not find a single CBS News article on the vandalism of Donald Trump's newly-opened Washington D.C. hotel.

Hillary Clinton and Black Lives Matter.  Hillary has said that white people have to, "recognize our privilege and practice humility."  To BLM rioters she said, "We need you.  We need the promise of a rising generation of activists and organizers who are fearless in your advocacy and determination."  The Black Lives Matter founder from Worchester, Massachusetts, once complained to Hillary, "Until someone speaks the truth to white people in this country so that we can actually take on anti-blackness as a founding problem in this country, I don't believe that there is going to be a solution.  What in your heart has changed that's going to change the direction of this country?" Hillary responded, "I don't believe you change hearts, I believe you change laws.  You change allocation of resources.  You change the way systems operate," indicating that she would change government to implement BLM's demands.

Mob of 50-60 angry students surround student who didn't want to participate in the BLM movement.  On October 14th I told you about how the Seattle Schools were organizing a "Black Lives Matter" Day in an effort to close the achievement gap between black and white students.  Apparently the students at Todd Beamer High School in Federal Way (south of Seattle) thought that would be a great idea as well.  Turns out the event didn't go as planned.

Black Lives pair meets with Hillary Clinton in Cleveland.  The Clinton campaign characterized the session with activists Brittany Packnett and DeRay Mckesson as a continuation of "the discussion of how they can advance equity and opportunity in the African-American community."  She met with the two about a year ago, too.  Packnett, 31, who achieved national prominence after the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, endorsed Clinton on Friday after initial misgivings, Elle magazine reported.

Black Lives Matter Activist Sues Trump Campaign For Negligence.  Two black protesters filed a lawsuit against the Trump campaign and the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) after being attacked by Trump supporters at a rally last year.  Mercutio Terrell Southall, Sr., a Black Lives Matter activist, and Carlos Montez Chaverst, Jr., a Birmingham activist, sued for $1 million in damages, reports  The central tenet of their suit is the assumption that a ticket purchase to a Trump rally also comes with the reasonable expectation of protection, for which the Trump campaign would be responsible.

Blue Lives Matter Is Asking All Americans To Boycott Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream.  Ben & Jerry's went beyond making a statement in support of civil rights when they actively accused law enforcement of widespread racism.  By spreading these false and misleading statements, Ben & Jerry's lends an appearance of legitimacy to the baseless claims that police officers are killing men based on the color of their skin.  This message has inspired the assassination and attempted assassination of police officers, and it costs officers their lives.  Black Lives Matter is made up of political organizations with political goals that most of Ben & Jerry's customers would disagree with, including disrupting the "nuclear family" structure (see Black Villages), taxpayer-funded reparations for black people (see Reparations), and the elimination of charter schools (see Invest-Divest.)  If you are unfamiliar with the Movement 4 Black Lives website we linked to, that's the coalition of over 50 Black Lives Matter organizations which is receiving $100 million in donations to push their political goals.

Blue Lives Matter encourages nationwide boycott of Ben & Jerry's.  A week ago, ice-cream makers Ben & Jerry's endorsed the "Black Lives Matter" movement.  On its website, a letter written to their customers, Ben & Jerry's spelled out their support.  In response, "Blue Lives Matter" said they are calling on all Americans to send a message — boycott Ben & Jerry's.

Meet the four Black Lives Matter enthusiasts who beat Brian Ogle almost to death.  Four black adult suspects have been arrested and charged with first- and second-degree assault in what should have been charges of attempted murder for the attack on 17-year-old Brian Ogle September 30.  Earlier in the same week, Ogle posted "I back the blue" on social media.  That was enough to mobilize four former Sylacauga High School thugs to pistol-whip the teen on his head and viciously beat him into unconsciousness.  Brian's constitutional right to express himself landed him in the ICU with multiple skull fractures and internal bleeding.  Three of the four suspects were arrested at their college campuses.  The other one in Sylacauga, where his mother is a city councilwoman.

Police group boycotts Ben & Jerry's over support of Black Lives Matter.  A pro-police group has called for a nationwide boycott against Ben & Jerry's after the ice cream company issued a statement last week announcing its enthusiastic support for the Black Lives Matter movement.  The Vermont-based ice cream company, founded by liberal activists Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, issued a lengthy statement last week saying "systemic and institutionalized racism" are the "defining civil rights and social justice issues of our time."  "We've come to understand that to be silent about the violence and threats to the lives and well-being of Black people is to be complicit in that violence and those threats," the Ben & Jerry's statement read.  "All lives do matter.  But all lives will not matter until Black lives matter."

Ben & Jerry's Faces Boycott After Endorsing Black Lives Matter.  Socially conscious ice cream company Ben & Jerry's faces calls for a boycott after the company announced its support for the Black Lives Matter protest movement this week.  "Systemic and institutionalized racism are the defining civil rights and social justice issues of our time," the Vermont-based company said in a statement posted on

Black Lives Matter tactics prompt questions about true aims of social justice movement.  Protests over police shootings of black men.  Outrage over gender bias in business and government.  Panic over melting ice caps and rising sea levels.  Demonstrations against the "1 percent."  Racism.  Sexism.  Environmentalism.  Classism.  What's a social justice warrior to do?  Protest without end, apparently.  D'Artagnan Scorza, executive director and founder of the Los Angeles-based Social Justice Learning Institute, says the social justice movement aims to uplift different groups who have been staggered and stymied by the weight of historical prejudices, oppression, exclusion and other transgressions.

Black Lives Matter Leader: 'We Will Incite Riots Everywhere If Trump Wins'.  Though the outcome of America's presidential election is still up in the air, Black Lives Matter has made it clear that one outcome is certain.  If Donald Trump is the victor, violence will erupt in the streets.

Campus debate on Black Lives Matter called racist, shut down by protesters.  A routine debate on Tuesday [9/27/2016] hosted by a University of Michigan debate club was effectively shut down after a throng of protesters stormed the event and repeatedly shouted over participants, claiming the topic on whether Black Lives Matter is harmful to racial relations is too racist and bigoted to be discussed.  Holding signs with statements such as "my life is not a debate" and "black lives are not up for debate," as well as chanting "Black Lives Matter," hundreds of protesters filed into the room where the Michigan Political Union, a non-partisan parliamentary forum that facilitates discussions about contemporary issues, was just beginning its debate Tuesday night [9/27/2016].

Video: Black Lives Matter Mob Chases, Beats Man Wearing Trump Hat.  In an assault captured on video, Feras Jabro, a Donald Trump supporter wearing a "Make America Great Again" baseball cap, was harassed, chased, thrown to the ground and beaten by Black Lives Matter activists at a protest in El Cajon, California.

BLM Activist Claims Police Never Have Justification To Kill.  A police officer never has good justification to kill someone, according to Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson.  Mckesson compared an officer killing someone to the idea of a person killing their child at an event co-sponsored by the San Diego State School of Journalism and Media Studies, reports The Daily Aztec.  "When is it okay for someone to kill their child?" he said.  "That is the only way I can think about this.  Somebody's kid is being killed."

BLM Founder:  Policing Is Problematic, So We Need Police-Free Communities.  Since policing is a problem, the police should be removed from communities altogether, according to Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza.  Garza argued that the United States gives too much respect to police officers, explaining that when police do wrong, a few bad cops are blamed, rather than a "corroded and corrupt system."

Black Lives Matter Storms New Orleans' Monuments.  A Black Lives Matter-aligned organization called 'Take 'Em Down Nola' stormed New Orleans' Andrew Jackson monument demanding all monuments related to the Civil War come down across the city.  The monument which sits at the heart of the city's historic French Quarter.

Charlotte riots, Tulsa doesn't.  For inexplicable reasons, leftists believe that the violence wrought by angry minorities will benefit them, so they encourage it.  They subsidize it.  Obama has given his not-so-tacit permission to riot every time one of these tragic events occurs, from the Henry Louis Gates minor incident to the killings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and the Dallas officers.  And now BLM is rolling in money, $100M from "social justice" organizations.  Soros gave them $33M.  What we see in Charlotte is what they pay for.  They are not wasting their money in Tulsa because Oklahoma is in the bag for Trump.

This is what BLM is protesting
The Charlotte Riots:  What They Are Not Telling You.  As America awaits to see if Charlotte will burn for the third consecutive night, Paul Joseph Watson points out something troubling:  thugs burned down a city because a black cop shot someone, yet meanwhile the mainstream media spun it, or at least tried, as as "peaceful protest."  There is just one problem:  violent criminals looting, attacking bystanders, attacking journalists, setting fires, smashing up cars, smashing up businesses and shooting at each other is not a "peaceful protest." [...] It's a violent, unjustified riot by criminals and thugs.  The question is why is the media giving it legitimacy by still referring to it as a protest?

'Starting a Race War': Dallas PD Sgt. Suing 'Black Lives', Obama, Clinton, Sharpton.  A Dallas police sergeant outraged at continued riotous activity and attacks on law enforcement officers filed a lawsuit against the Black Lives Matter organization and a number of officials he said are culpable for an increase in anti-cop violence and unrest in the US.  "They are responsible for starting a race war in this country" Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, who is also black, told Elizabeth MacDonald on Risk and Reward.  A lot of people completely miss the point of Black Lives Matter movement.  Their website talks about black liberation.  In addition to the group, he is suing at least five national or international figures he says bear some of the responsibility for supporting or "facilitating" Black Lives Matter activity.  The list includes President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, MSNBC host and activist Al Sharpton, Hungarian-born billionaire George Soros, and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

Dallas police sergeant files federal suit accusing Black Lives Matter leaders of inciting anti-cop violence.  A Dallas police sergeant has filed a federal lawsuit against Black Lives Matter leaders and others, blaming the movement for race riots and violence against police officers.  Sgt. Demetrick Pennie, president of the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation and a 17-year law enforcement veteran, filed the amended complaint in federal court Friday.  Conservative news site Breitbart published the lawsuit in an article that evening.  The listed defendants include not only those associated with the Black Lives Matter movement but public figures such as the Rev. Al Sharpton, Louis Farrahkan, George Soros, the New Black Panthers Party and even President Barack Obama and presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Popular NYC Venue Cancels Black Lives Matter Event Over Anti-Israel Libels.  Owners of a popular cabaret club near New York's Times Square regretfully canceled a scheduled benefit for the Black Lives Matter movement after affiliated organizations published a platform claiming that Israel was committing genocide, The New York Times reported on Thursday [9/8/2016].  The owners of Feinstein's/54 Below e-mailed benefit ticket-holders informing them of the cancellation, and explained in a separate message that while they "strongly believe in and support the general thrust of the goals and objectives" of the movement, they had "become aware of a recent addition to the B.L.M. platform that accuses Israel of genocide and endorses a range of boycott and sanction actions."  Black Lives Matter is a diffuse and loosely-organized movement; the Movement for Black Lives, a coalition of many Black Lives Matters groups, actually published the platform in question.

Why Were 6 Men In Ferguson/St. Louis Shot To Death And Left In Burning Cars?  Darren Seals was killed late into the night of September 5th, really more early morning September 6th in a parking lot in Riverview in north St. Louis.  Seals' death excited comment because he had been a Ferguson activist and of the circumstances of his death.  He had been shot to death and left in a burning car, an unusual form of death, clearly a homicide.  Immediately questions were raised.  Black Lives Matter folks, always looking for a way to exploit even in death, suggested he had been killed by police.  Questions were raised about the enmity that the Black Lives Matter folks themselves held toward Darren Seals since he called them out for their exploitation and was working to follow the money.  But in looking at the case, I realized something else was unusual, that six men in total had in fact been shot to death and left in their burning cars.  BLM began spreading names of the men without the backgrounds of the cases, suggesting thereby that someone was mysteriously killing black men.

The lies told by the Black Lives Matter movement.  The facts are these:  Last year, the police shot 990 people, the vast majority armed or violently resisting arrest, according to the Washington Post's database of fatal police shootings.  Whites made up 49.9 percent of those victims, blacks 26 percent.  That proportion of black victims is lower than what the black violent crime rate would predict.  Blacks constituted 62 percent of all robbery defendants in America's 75 largest counties in 2009, 57 percent of all murder defendants and 45 percent of all assault defendants, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, even though blacks comprise only 15 percent of the population in those counties.  In New York City, where blacks make up 23 percent of the city's population, blacks commit three-quarters of all shootings and 70 percent of all robberies, according to victims and witnesses in their reports to the NYPD.  Whites, by contrast, commit less than 2 percent of all shootings and 4 percent of all robberies, though they are nearly 34 percent of the city's population.

London City Airport flights disrupted after 'Black Lives Matter' protesters occupy runway.  Flights at London City Airport were disrupted this morning [9/6/2016] after a group of protesters occupied the runway.  Nine demonstrators got onto the runway and chained themselves to a tripod at about 5.40 am, police said.  The protesters, who claim to be acting in support of Black Lives Matter UK, are said to have got onto the tarmac at the airport after using a boat to sail across the Royal Docks.

U.K. Airport Brought to a Standstill by Protesters.  A group of protesters from Black Lives Matter UK brought London's City Airport to a standstill for nearly six hours early on Tuesday [9/6/2016], holding up thousands of passengers.

5 Eye-Opening Revelations In The Dems' Secret 'Black Lives Matter' Memo.  An internal memo drafted by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee last November saw the light of day this week when The Smoking Gun posted the two-page document on its website.  The memo — written by the DCCC's then-diversity director Troy Perry — explains how congressmen and their staff should "respond to the tactics of the Black Lives Matter movement."  But it also reveals some things that Perry probably never intended.

Don't anger Black Lives Matters activists by mentioning 'black-on-black crime': What Democratic staff were told.  In the midst a spate of Black Lives Matter protests that put presidential candidates on the spot during speeches last year, a staffer for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee coached Democratic staffers on how to avoid antagonizing the group.  The memo, which was published on the web site of hacker Guccifer 2.0, provides step-by-step guidance on how candidates can avoid ticking off protesters.  "Do not say 'all lives matter' and nor [sic] mention 'black on black crime,'" it advises.  "If approached by BLM activists, campaign staff should offer to meet with local activists.  Invited BLM attendees should be limited," according to the memo.

Controversy Erupts After NFL Quarterback Converts To Islam and Refuses To Stand for National Anthem.  A controversy has erupted today because San Francisco 49er's Quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand up during the playing of the national anthem. [...] So what exactly is going on.  Well, there's a little more to the story than most are willing to accept.  The media and the NFL will avoid these discussions like the plague, but [...] During the off-season Colin Kaepernick converted to Islam.  Colin Kaepernick is also engaged to Black Lives Matter activist and hip-hop radio personality DJ Nessa Diab.  Black Lives Matter as an activist group is synonymous with promotion of authentic Islam.

White Lives Matter to be listed as hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center: 'Everything about it is racist'.  The White Lives Matter movement will be designated as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the organization revealed Friday [8/26/2016].  The white supremacist group will be listed in February on the center's Hate Map, a compilation of the country's known hate groups and their chapters' locations.  "I can't speak to how many chapters will be listed, but it's clear that the leadership of the group, the ends of the group — it's just a flat out white supremacist group," Heidi Beirich, Director of Intelligence Project at SPLC, said in an interview with the Houston Chronicle.  "The ideology behind it, the racist leaders, everything about it is racist," she added.

Black Lives Matter Presses Lawsuit Against Flood-Battered Baton Rouge.  Baton Rouge police submerged in flood recovery efforts also are grappling with a lawsuit filed by Black Lives Matter protesters claiming excessive use of force during demonstrations that left three officers dead last month.  Roy J. Rodney Jr., a Baton Rouge attorney for three Black Lives Matter activists, confirmed Tuesday [8/23/2016] that the complaint remains active even though all charges were dropped shortly after the mass arrests.

Black Lives Matter Criticized For Being No Shows At Louisiana Flood.  Black Lives Matter finds itself under fire for protesting the Baton Rogue shooting, but ignoring the Louisiana flood, reports the Washington Times.  A video of a Baton Rogue resident asking where the Black Panthers and the Black Lives Matter people are has gone viral.  "I have not seen not one Black Panther boat, not one Black Lives Matter boat, truck or nothing else.  So with all the drama that was going on with the Alton Sterling killing, oh they came out with guns, ready to go to war.  But here we go, all these people flooded out and truly in need of some help and you can't find not one of them," Jerry T Washington said in the video.

Federal Judge Declares 'Black Lives Matter' From The Bench.  A federal judge in Washington state declared "black lives matter" during a hearing Monday [8/15/2016].  U.S. District Judge James Robart, a former President George W. Bush appointee, is presiding over the implementation of a 2012 consent decree requiring Seattle to adopt various police reforms.  The city's police department was accused by the federal government of engaging in various practices, such as excessive force, that fell disproportionately on non-white residents and therefore violated their civil rights.  The consent decree was reached so the city could avoid fighting a costly lawsuit against the feds.  This is the first time the contentious political movement has had its anthem officially supported by a judge in a federal courtroom.

Black Lives Matter cashes in with $100 million from liberal foundations.  For all its talk of being a street uprising, Black Lives Matter is increasingly awash in cash, raking in pledges of more than $100 million from liberal foundations and others eager to contribute to what has become the grant-making cause du jour.  The Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy recently announced the formation of the Black-Led Movement Fund [BLMF], a six-year pooled donor campaign aimed at raising $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives coalition.  That funding comes in addition to more than $33 million in grants to the Black Lives Matter movement from top Democratic Party donor George Soros through his Open Society Foundations, as well as grant-making from the Center for American Progress.

Ford Foundation will fund Black Lives Matter big time.  Ellen McGirt at Fortune Magazine reports that the Black Lives Matter movement will receive millions of dollars in funding from the Ford Foundation. [...] How much money will the Ford Foundation and its partners funnel to BLM? According to Edmund Kozak at PoliZette, the above-mentioned Borealis Philanthropy says the goal is to "bring $100 million in new resources to the Movement for Black Lives."  Without distorting BLM's work, of course.  No one should be surprised that the Ford Foundation will fund BLM.  It is a thoroughly leftist operation and has been for decades.

Black Lives Matter blindsides Jewish supporters with anti-Israel platform.  The Black Lives Matter movement blindsided its Jewish supporters with the recent unveiling of its social and political policy agenda, a far-left manifesto that strays well beyond police brutality and accuses Israel of "genocide" and "apartheid."  "The U.S. justifies and advances the global war on terror via its alliance with Israel and is complicit in the genocide taking place against the Palestinian people," said the platform's "Invest-Divest" policy brief.

Another implausible Black Lives Matter martyr.  The left tried to pass off Michael Brown, the thug who robbed a convenience store, roughed up an employee, and then assaulted a police officer, as a "gentle giant."  Okay, anyone can make a mistake before the facts are all in.  But even after the Obama Justice Department exploded the gentle giant myth and found that the officer who killed Brown acted in self defense, the left continues to treat Brown as a victim.  With much better cases of bad police conduct to tout, it still won't let go of the "hands up, don't shoot" Ferguson lie.  And now the movement is pressing the case of Korryn Gaines.  She's the woman whom the Baltimore County police shot and killed after she pointed a shotgun at officers for hours while police officers tried to talk her down, and eventually threatened to kill them.

Black Lives Matter Leader Arrested Multiple Times for Impersonating Police Officer.  An outspoken member of the Black Lives Matter movement in Atlanta, GA is on probation for perhaps the last reason one might imagine. reports Tyree "Sir Maejor" Page, the leader of BLM of Greater Atlanta, has been arrested multiple times in the past few years for impersonating a police officer.  According to the report, Page was first charged with impersonating an officer after an incident in December 2014 where he allegedly handcuffed an African American woman while "wearing a replica of the Atlanta police officer uniform."  A police report obtained by the news station says Page was also armed with a .45 semi-automatic pistol at the time of the incident.  Page told officers he was working as a security guard at the time.

Lying Black Folks to Death.  Leftists — aided by our corrupt news media — are past masters of replacing truth with narrative. [...] When it comes to the problems of black Americans, the left outdoes itself in the art of deception.  Virtually every assertion of the violent Black Lives Matter hate movement is a falsehood.  Even the name of this vicious collection of groups is offensive.  When challenged by those who respond with "All Lives Matter," the BLM people thug-splain that what they really meant was "Black Lives Matter too."  But this assumes that white people don't know this, that blacks in this country are treated as if their lives matter less than others.

Clinton Chooses Black Lives Matter Over Law Enforcement Support.  Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton pursued the endorsement of Black Lives Matter activists but blew off the largest police union in the United States.  After almost a year of meeting with Black Lives Matter representatives, Clinton failed to garner the support of the movement's co-founder Alicia Garza, but she managed to receive the endorsement of mothers championed by the Black Lives Matter movement.  Garza recently slammed Clinton, saying the former secretary of state only "uses black people for votes" and "photo ops," but doesn't "do anything for black communities" after getting elected.

Mother of police shooting suspect calls Black Lives Matter 'irresponsible'.  The mother of one of two central Pennsylvania teenagers charged with shooting at police officers last week contends the Black Lives Matter movement is to blame for his actions.

Black Lives Matter protests: motorway route into Heathrow Airport blocked by activists lying on road.  Anti-racism activists brought traffic to a standstill on the road to Heathrow airport on a day of action which featured protests around the UK.  Campaign group Black Lives Matter — or BLMUK — said it wanted to commemorate the fifth anniversary of the death of Mark Duggan, who was shot by police attempting to arrest him in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011, sparking nationwide riots.

Heathrow Airport traffic shut down by Black Lives Matter protesters.  Traffic heading to Heathrow Airport was dramatically stopped by Black Lives Matter protesters who are lying in the road at the entrance to the hub and blocking the M4.  As thousands of holidaymakers made their way to the airport on Friday morning [8/5/2016], they were met with long tailbacks after the protesters spread banners across arterial routes.  Police have drafted in cutting equipment to saw through the chains which the protesters have used to lock themselves to each other and concrete blocks covered with what appears to be tubing.

Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson sues police.  Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson is suing the police and city of Baton Rouge over mass arrests during protests against police killings.  He said police acted in a "militarised and aggressive manner" in detaining him and nearly 200 other people last month.  The protests were against the killing of Alton Sterling, a black man, in the Louisiana city.

Thousands of holidaymakers blocked from Heathrow and Birmingham Airport by Black Lives Matter protesters.  A tweet by Transport for London this morning said:  "The M4 Spur is now closed heading towards Airport from the M4 J4 roundabout due to a demonstration near the tunnel entrance."  The route is now once again partially open.  But the demonstration has caused travel chaos on what is one of the busiest days of the year for the airport, with families heading off on their summer holidays.

Police union's 'Black Labs Matter' dog photo is called insulting to Black Lives Matter cause.  A San Francisco police officers' union has published a photo of two dogs in its monthly newspaper that critics say belittles the Black Lives Matter movement.  The photo has also raised questions about if the force is serious about repairing its relationship with people of color in the community.

Parents of teenagers jailed for opening fire on police officers blame Black Lives Matter saying the movement WANTS people to shoot at police.  The parents of two boys who are behind bars after they opened fire on a group of police officers have blamed blaming Black Lives Matter for the teenagers' actions.  Marquell Rentas, 17, and and his cousin Trenton Nace, 18, were arrested on Friday [7/29/2016] after officers in the borough of Columbia, Pennsylvania came under fire for 45 minutes when they responded to an emergency call from someone who said that had heard gunshots.  No officers were shot or injured in the attack. [...] Now, Marquell's mother and Trenton's father are both saying in separate interviews that this is the fault of a movement that they claim wants people to hurt law enforcement officials.

Black Lives Matter Activist Sues Baton Rouge Over Arrest.  Black Lives Matter activist DeRay Mckesson sued the city of Baton Rouge and police officials Thursday [8/4/20167], saying officers responded in a "militarized and aggressive manner" in arresting him and other people protesting a police shooting death.

BLM Livid Over Huge Sign Hanging In Texas, 4 Words Shuts Them Up For Good.  As the Black Lives Matter movement continues to fight back against the so-called "racially supremacist system," not everyone agrees with their message.  In fact, members of the BLM have most recently been outraged over a massive sign that was seen in Texas — and it takes just 4 words to shut them up for good.  The sign is located at Wagner Supply Company in Odessa where owners and management decided to take a bold stance.

Black Lives Matter groups list their demands.  Dozens of groups associated with the Black Lives Matter movement spelled out their demands on Monday [8/1/2016] for the first time, saying they want criminal justice and law enforcement reform, free tuition and forgiveness on student loans. [...] Some of the changes include an end to militarized police presence at protests and the retroactive decriminalization and immediate release of people convicted of drug offenses, sex work-related offenses and youth offenses.  It also includes a request for the passage of a bill that would create a commission to study reparations for descendants of slaves.

Police rally as mayor says Black Lives Matter banner stays.  About 50 police officers and their supporters upset about a Black Lives Matter banner that has been hanging outside City Hall for a year rallied on Thursday [7/28/2016] to try to pressure the mayor to remove it.

Moment's silence called to remember slain police officers at Democratic convention is interrupted by chant of 'Black Lives Matter'.  A moment's silence for slain police officers was interrupted by chants of 'Black Lives Matter' during the Democratic convention.  Dallas Sheriff Lupe Valdez was on stage paying a stirring tribute to the five officers who were gunned down in her city on July 7.  The veteran officer then asked the crowd to remember all of the cops who had fallen in the line of duty with a quiet moment of reflection.  She said:  'Please help me to honor ALL of America's fallen officers with a moment of silence.'  Then members of the crowd shouted the controversial slogan, and it was heard all around Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center.

How Obama Has Eroded America's Domestic Tranquility.  The seemingly random violence is the vanguard of two not unrelated ideologies. Both the radical Islamic attacks on domestic tranquility and the racialist attacks on the police aim to undermine the American constitutional order.  Don't call them "lone-wolf attacks."  The term "lone wolf" insulates each new act of mayhem from a larger context and from ideology.  The killers might act alone, but they are certainly not alone in their burning hatred for Western values and the rule of law.  Disassociating the killer from the overarching narratives and ideologies delays the moment when the West will fully understand what is happening.

Black Lives Matter Protesters Torch French Town.  Multiple Black Lives Matter protesters have been arrested in France after demonstrations against the death of a Malian man in police custody left Beaumont-sur-Oise and other nearby towns in flames.  Of those arrested, some are being charged with throwing incendiary objects at security forces and others for "trying to burn down" their towns.  Despite a huge police presence, Saturday [7/23/2016] marked a fifth night of violence in the Val d'Oise district after the death of Adama Traoré in police custody on Tuesday.  During demonstrations against Mr. Traoré's death, protesters, some wielding baseball bats, torched cars, petrol pumps, bins, and piles of rubbish.  Buildings were also set alight, including a large warehouse in Persan, near Beaumont-sur-Oise.

Black Lives Matter Rejects Barbecue with Police: 'I Eat Pigs, I Don't Eat With Them'.  The Oakland Police Department (OPD) extended an invitation to followers of the Black Lives Matter movement to participate in a barbecue to start a constructive dialogue between the two groups.  However, the police were met with flat-out rejection by a spokesperson who referred to law enforcement as "pigs."  "A BBQ is definitely not going to stop this blockade," Karissa Lewis, a self-described "radical black farmer from East Oakland," told local Fox affiliate KTVU.

BLM: Barack Loses his Mind.  Whenever leftists use brave-sounding terms like "frank conversations," you know that there are a lot of things you're not going to be allowed to talk about.  Like astronomical black crime rates as a percentage of the whole population; the disproportionate incarceration rates of young black males; the way black male lives don't seem to matter at all to other trigger-happy young black males.  It's like talking with them about the links between Islam and terrorism, the role of welfare in the destruction of the family, the big difference between "immigration" and "illegal immigration" — none of which anyone on the left can grasp.

Trump's Answer to Black-on-Cop Murder.  Wouldn't it be pretty to think all we had to do to stop black people from killing cops was put a few leaders of Black Lives Matter in jail? [...] But Black Lives Matter is the tail, not the dog.  The dog is the towering level of black violence, hostility and criminality that is so wildly out of proportion.  And puts cops in conflict with black people so often.  And how reporters and public officials ignore, deny, condone, excuse, encourage and even lie about it.  The talking heads just cannot talk plainly about it.  Instead we get gobbledygook about criminal justice reform and better police community relations.  Next time you hear that, just remember what that really means:  Black criminals do not like getting caught.  And neither do their enablers in newsrooms and city halls.

Police Union Upset With 'Black Lives Matter' Banner at City Hall.  On Tuesday, a police union in Somerville, Massachusetts told Mayor Joseph Curtatone that he must replace the "Black Lives Matter" banner displayed at City Hall with one that reads "All Lives Matter."  "It is inconceivable to us as it is demoralizing that our City would propagate its support for this movement while standing silent over the seemingly daily protest assassinations of innocent police officers around the county," The Somerville Police Employees Association wrote.  Though they supported "well-intentioned" Black Lives Matter activists, and opposed excessive force by law enforcement, the police union said others are "provoked" to attack cops in the name of that movement.

Black Lives Matter blasts Trump as a 'terrorist' after law-and-order convention speech.  Black Lives Matter officials blasted presidential nominee Donald Trump as a "terrorist" after his Thursday [7/21/2016] speech to the Republican National Committee, saying he wants to give police authority to "terrorize our communities."  "The terrorist on our televisions tonight was Donald Trump.  He pledged to fight for Americans, while threatening the vast majority of this country with imprisonment, deportation and a culture of abject fear," said Patrisse Cullors, co-founder in Black Lives Matter, in a late Thursday statement.  In his address, Mr. Trump called for restoring law and order, slamming President Obama's record on inner-city poverty, unemployment and crime while vowing to ensure that "all our kids are treated equally, and protected equally."

How The Media Covers Up Muslim And #Blacklivesmatter Terrorism.  The propaganda, the artful selection and deselection of facts, have become as familiar to us as they were to any of the residents of the Soviet Union or North Korea.  Anyone who pays attention knows not only that they are being lied to, but can easily predict the lies that they will be told on the evening news even before they actually hear them being spoken out loud.  We always knew that the Muslim terrorist, even before he was identified, would turn out to be a secular loner who was depressed over his family life.  All the media had to do with Mohammed Bouhlel, the Islamic terrorist who murdered 84 people in Nice, France was to replay the same exact narrative as the one that they had fed us with Omar Mateen, the Islamic terrorist who murdered 49  people in Orlando.  Irreligious, depressed loner with family problems.  Check.  No connection to Islamic terrorism.  Suggestion of mental illness.  Check and check.  Insistence on his lack of interest in religion?  One final check.

Who Gets Absolute Moral Authority?  Among the sainted moms of the Black Lives Matter movement who will speak on Hillary Clinton's behalf are Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, mother of Trayvon Martin; Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontre Hamilton; Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis; Lesley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton; and Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland.  Each of these cases lumped under supposedly unjustified gun violence and systemic racism is complicated and distinct.  For starters, Bland hanged herself when her friends and family wouldn't bail her out of jail after she had kicked a police officer.  Two of the "children" involved in police shootings (Brown and Hamilton) had assaulted cops during their fatal encounters. [...] Because these women endorse race-baiting, gun-grabbing narratives and left-wing candidates, no one working in the mainstream media will ever challenge their parental prerogative to participate in politics on behalf of their loved ones.

Black Lives Matter Vancouver demands removal of police float from Pride Parade.  A Canadian Black Lives Matter chapter demanded a police float be removed from the Vancouver Pride Parade in an open letter Friday to police and march organizers.  Black Lives Matter Vancouver wrote that the Vancouver Police Department should agree to a "voluntary withdrawal" from the July 31 LGBT pride event "as a symbolic gesture and actual sign of support for Indigenous, PoC and Black communities."

The Editor says...
The police should remove their float from the parade, and then make a big announcement that no police officers will be within two blocks of the parade route.  Whatever happens next will be a lesson to everyone.

Massacre of Cops in Baton Rouge.  Of course, murdering police officers has long been encouraged by activists with the Marxist, anti-American, revolutionary Black Lives Matter cult, with the support of the activist Left and financing from speculator George Soros.  A year ago Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who openly advocates the mass murder of whites, called for "10,000 fearless men" to "rise up and kill those who kill us."  Like many radicals, Farrakhan mischaracterizes Black Lives Matter as a rising civil rights movement.  President Barack Hussein Obama, who a decade ago promoted inter-racial warfare in Kenya, has long tried to provoke civil unrest here in the U.S. with his hateful anti-cop rhetoric and his relentless demonization of opponents.  His goal is fundamental transformation of the United States.  A Red diaper baby who identifies violence-espousing communist Frantz Fanon as an intellectual influence, he has also steadfastly refused to condemn Black Lives Matter.  In fact Obama has lavished attention on the movement's leaders and invited them to the White House over and over again.

BLM leader lives in home owned by Soros Open Society Institute board member.  DeRay Mckesson seems to be the man of the hour in the #BlackLivesMatter movement, having just attended a summit at the White House, from which he tweeted.  But he is also living proof of the Astroturf origins of the movement treated so seriously by President Obama. [...] There is no information on what, if any, rent Mckesson pays on his home.

White House responds to petition to label Black Lives Matter a "terror" group.  After days of violence and heightened racial tensions in the U.S., the White House responded this week to an online petition asking the federal government to formally label the Black Lives Matter movement as a "terror group."  "Terrorism is defined as 'the use of violence and intimidation in pursuit of political aims,'" read the "We The People" petition, created July 6 on the White House website.  "This definition is the same definition used to declare ISIS and other groups, as terrorist organizations."  Black Lives Matter, the petition said, "earned this title due to its actions in Ferguson, Baltimore, and even at a Bernie Sanders rally, as well as all over the United States and Canada."  It asked the Pentagon to recognize the group as such "on the grounds of principle, integrity, morality, and safety."

WH Responds to Petition Seeking to Label 'Black Lives Matter' a Domestic Terrorist Organization.  It didn't take the White House long to respond to a July 6 petition asking the Obama administration to "formally recognize Black Lives Matter as a terrorist organization.  "The White House plays no role in designating domestic terror organizations," said last week's response to the 141,444 signers of the online petition.

Will Hillary Ditch Black Lives Matter?  After the massacre of five Dallas cops, during a protest of police shootings of black men in Louisiana and Minnesota, President Obama said, "America is not as divided as some have suggested."  Former D.C. Police Chief Charles Ramsey, an African-American, says we are "sitting on a powder keg."  Put me down as agreeing with the president.  For when a real powder keg blew in the '60s, I was there.  And this is not it.

Black Lives Matter Activists Angry 'White People' In France Stealing Their Limelight.  Black Lives Matter (BLM) supporters have claimed the deadly terrorist attack in France was "to make people lose attention" [sic] in their movement and focus on "white" lives instead.  "Ok I've come to the conclusion that what happened in Nice was to make people lose attention off [sic] #BlackLivesMatter and focus and unite against us", wrote Twitter user Semsa, who is based in London but says "Egypt's the motherland".  She has since made her account private.

NAACP considers role alongside Black Lives Matter at annual convention.  After high-profile police killings of black men in Baton Rouge and Minneapolis and two targeted killings of police officers, the US is being forced to stare down its perennial struggles with race and justice.  So as 5,000 NAACP members, volunteers and leaders descend on Cincinnati, Ohio, one natural question that presents itself is:  where does the venerable association sit in relation to the relatively nascent Black Lives Matter movement that has captured the nation's attention with its loud, urgent protests against police violence?

Black Lives Matter note found near police cruiser firebombed outside Florida mosque.  An unoccupied police cruiser was firebombed outside a Florida mosque Sunday morning and a note supporting the Black Lives Matter movement was found at the scene, police said.  Someone likely used a Molotov cocktail to destroy the marked Daytona Beach police car about 2 a.m outside the Islamic Center at 347 S. Keech St., Police Chief Mike Chitwood said.  Police arrived on the scene to find the vehicle completely engulfed in flames, The Associated Press reported.

Florida police car set on fire; Black Lives Matter note left.  A police cruiser in Florida was set on fire and a note referencing the Black Lives Matter movement was found nearby.

The article above goes on to say the car was being used as bait for car thieves, which shows that bait cars don't fool everyone.

The white elites who fund Black Lives Matter.  The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement began in 2013 with the use of the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media, after the acquittal of half-Latino George Zimmerman in the shooting death of black Trayvon Martin.  In 2014, BLM attained national prominence for its violent street demonstrations and protests after the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York City.  On July 7, 2016, reacting to the officer-involved deaths of two black men in Minnesota and Louisiana, a black Army reservist named Micah Johnson shot 12 police officers in Dallas, killing 5 and wounding 7, as well as 2 civilians.  We are told that before Johnson was killed by a police robot, he said that "he was upset about Black Lives Matter", and that "he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers."  A day later, on July 8, more than 100 people were arrested in nationwide BLM protests, most notably in Baton Rouge, LA, and Rochester, NY.

Black Lives Matter's claims lead more people to fear and hate the police.  Claims about racist cops from groups like Black Lives Matter lead more people to fear and hate the police.  That's bad news for cops.  It's also bad for black people who live in crime-ridden neighborhoods, says Heather MacDonald, author of "The War on Cops."  She points out that activist policing is what people in those neighborhoods need and want, because they are much less safe if fearful cops (or cops who just want to avoid a hateful experience — like being screamed at and called racist) stay in the car instead of questioning the young men hanging out on the corner.  Yes, says MacDonald, it's true that police disproportionately stop blacks, but "violent crimes are disproportionately committed by blacks."  That's something you probably won't hear at a Black Lives Matter rally.

The black cop who has a problem with 'Black Lives Matter'.  "Black Lives do not matter to most black people...Only the lives that are taken at the hands of cops or white people, matter."  That is the conclusion of a strongly-worded post that has been shared more than 130,000 times on Facebook and has racked up hundreds of thousands of views on other media platforms such as Imgur.  While the sentiment is provocative, it is the identity of the author that triggered particular interest.  Jay Stalien's profile indicates he is an active police officer in Florida and previously Baltimore.  And he is black.

Memphis newspaper apologizes for accurate, yet 'racist' headline.  A newspaper in Memphis quickly apologize after protestors complained about its choice of headline in the wake of the deadly police shooting in Dallas.  "Gunman targeted whites," read the lead story headline in the Commercial Appeal, a member of the USA Today network.  The headline was accurate, as Dallas gunman Micah Xavier Johnson explicitly talked about wanted to kill white police officers before he was eliminated via robot bomb.  That didn't stop protestors from gathering outside the paper's office in downtown Memphis on Wednesday [7/13/2016] to express their displeasure, some holding signs that read "Black Lives Matter."

Obama just couldn't help himself in Dallas speech.  [Scroll down]  I wondered how long it would take for him to defend the Black Lives Matter corner of his core constituency that has come under proper fire for its viciously broad slander of police culture.  Elapsed time was about fifteen minutes from praise for our fallen officers to a further coddling of those who took to our streets to malign their brothers and sisters in uniform.  Aiming straight at those of us who have suggested a civil perusal of racial disparity is actually harmed by BLM's excesses, his scolding was firm:  "We cannot simply turn away and dismiss those in peaceful protest as troublemakers or paranoid," he instructed.

Black Lives Matter's claims lead more people to fear and hate the police.  Claims about racist cops from groups like Black Lives Matter lead more people to fear and hate the police.  That's bad news for cops.  It's also bad for black people who live in crime-ridden neighborhoods, says Heather MacDonald, author of "The War on Cops."  She points out that activist policing is what people in those neighborhoods need and want, because they are much less safe if fearful cops (or cops who just want to avoid a hateful experience — like being screamed at and called racist) stay in the car instead of questioning the young men hanging out on the corner.  Yes, says MacDonald, it's true that police disproportionately stop blacks, but "violent crimes are disproportionately committed by blacks."  That's something you probably won't hear at a Black Lives Matter rally.

BLM leader lives in home owned by Soros' Open Society board member.  BlackLivesMatter leader DeRay Mckesson may claim to be leading a grassroots revolution for racial and economic justice, but he has close connections with the privileged and elite.  Mckesson lives in a home owned by philanthropists James and Robin Wood in Baltimore, Maryland.  It's the same address he used when declaring his residency on his campaign committee registration form for his failed mayoral run in the city's Democratic primary earlier this year.

BlackLivesMatter Walrus Admits She Only Wants Their Money.  Want to know what the BLM thugs think about their white allies?  This one says she only wants to use white allies to drain their bank accounts, says that every single possession or cultural aspect whites own was stolen — she claims that literally everything white people have should be given away to blacks.  And to top it all off, she wants to physically beat white allies who show up at protests, and thinks that they should only be utilized in militant operations as dumb, silent, "police buffers".  The author describes herself, Ashleigh Shackelford, as "a queer, nonbinary Black fat femme writer, artist, and cultural producer".

Black Lives Matter in Cleveland refuses RNC protest regulations.  Of the dozens of groups who are seeking to bring thousands of demonstrators here for next week's Republican National Convention, there is one conspicuous by its absence:  the local franchise of Black Lives Matter.  The Cleveland group, whose affiliates throughout the country have been thrust into the national spotlight for a demonstration that preceded last week's deadly ambush of five Dallas-area police officers, has elected not to participate in the formal permitting process for marches, access to downtown parks and speakers' podiums.

CNN's Marc Lamont Hill:  Black People Are Incapable of Racism.  CNN political commentator and HuffPo Live host Marc Lamont Hill opined Monday [7/11/2016] that black people cannot be racist because they lack the "institutional power" required to "deploy racism."  Hill was asked to respond to comments made by former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani calling the Black Lives Matter movement racist.  "First of all, by the way, Black Lives Matter and the movement for black lives this morning issued a pledge which I tweeted out today calling for justice, calling for peace, and calling for togetherness in a moment where we're attempting to be divided," Hill said.

Marc Lamont Hill:  Black People Can't Be Racist.  CNN political commentator Marc Lamont Hill argued on Monday that black people cannot be racist and that the "moral failure of gun culture" needs to be changed.  Appearing on CNN Newsroom, Hill said, "To say that the Black Lives Matter movement is racist is bizarre to me not just because black people don't have the institutional power to be racist or to deploy racism, but because the movement has called for justice."

Black El Paso Police Chief:  BLM Is A 'Radical Hate Group'.  Greg Allen was in attendance at a news conference Friday where various leaders in the El Paso area expressed solidarity with Dallas while also trying to appeal to those who feel marginalized by a recent spate of high-profile police shootings.  Allen didn't deliver a statement at the conference, but he gave an interview to local press afterwards.  During the interview, Allen was asked to comment on an upcoming protest vigil El Paso's Black Lives Matter group is planning to hold Sunday night.  He responded by denouncing the group in remarkably harsh terms.

Obama's Theological Roots Behind Black Lives Matter.  When the organization known as Black Lives Matter (BLM) was first formed right after George Zimmerman's acquittal in the death of Trayvon Martin on July 13, 2013, most overlooked the true intentions of the group beyond their calls for "justice".  Fast forward to today and it can no longer be overlooked that their calls for justice now result in retaliatory violence against those whom they believe are the oppressors, namely those being white people in general and police officers specifically.  By tracing the origins of the organization back to its philosophical formation in the 1960's, we can begin to see how BLM is rooted in the radical ideological beliefs espoused by none other than President Barack Obama.

Exposing The Black Lives Matter Movement For What It Is: Promotion of Cop Killing.  It's time to expose the Black Lives Matter [BLM] movement for what it is:  a racist, violent hate group that promotes the execution of police officers.  The evidence is in their rhetoric and written on their shirts.  If you take a look at the Black Lives Matter Twitter feed, you'll find photos of activists wearing shirts that say, "Assata Taught Me."  They're referring to infamous cop killer Assata Shakur, otherwise known as Joanne Chesimard, who shot and killed a New Jersey State Trooper back in 1973.

Network Media, Black Leaders Sit Idly By as #BlackLivesMatter Rhetoric Grows Dangerous.  It's obvious we're heading into dangerous territory now.  The race wars that the likes of Dylan Roof and Vester Lee Flanagan are looking to ignite are only fueled by words and chants like this that go largely ignored.  Reasonable heads need to prevail here before we have another Baltimore, another Ferguson, or something much worse, something like a wildfire that can't be controlled.  Major media ignores a movement that openly chants for the death of police officers:  How isn't this a story worth a three-minute package on?  And before you say that group in Minnesota is just a rogue chapter, an aberration, ask yourself this:  If that's the case, why hasn't BLM leadership spoken out against such rhetoric yet?  Because they don't necessarily disagree with the message, that's why.

Please Tell Black Lives Matter to Shut Up and Go Away!  Black Lives Matter thugs are bullying everyone because they can.  These evil hate-filled race profiteers ignored the facts in every incident in which a black is killed.  The movement is a scam.  BLM is really about gaining political power.  It is not about resolving issues or racial unity. [...] The insidiously evil movement is unworthy of respect from the American people.  Pandering to BLM is a huge mistake; emboldening them to behave more outrageously and make more absurd demands.
  •   In Boston, BLM banned whites from a public forum.
  •   At a Chicago suburb white high school students were barred from attending a Black Lives Matter event.
  •   BLM leaders say they will "shut down" the Republican National Convention.
  •   In Denver, BLM bullies say screw history, we want the name of the city's Stapleton neighborhood changed.
  •   BLM thugs began digging up a confederate general's grave.
  •   BLM launched a campaign to deface civil war monuments across America.
  •   BLM thugs are burning American and confederate flags.

Black Lives Matter Banned from Nashville Library for 'Black Only' Meetings Policy, Blames 'White Supremacy'.  Nashville Public Library officials informed Nashville's chapter of Black Lives Matter members that the group's "open to black and non-black people of color only" meetings policy is prohibited on public property.  "The library didn't cancel anyone's meeting," library spokeswoman Emily Waltenbaugh said after Black Lives Matter members moved their Saturday meeting to a church located a mile away.  "We're taxpayer funded.  We have to be open to anyone any time."

Loretta Lynch Gives Shout-Out to Black Lives Matter: 'Do Not Be Discouraged'.  Members of the Black Lives Matter movement should not get "discouraged by those who would use your lawful actions as a cover for their heinous violence," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Friday [7/8/2016].  Her encouragement of the radical movement came a few hours after five officers were gunned down and six were wounded by an African-American radical attacker during a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas.  Throughout her Friday statement, she zig-zagged between her calls for more political protests, her suggestions that cops should be blamed for the high number of African-Americans killed during interactions with law enforcement, and her calls for less violence during political protests.

Did someone mention Loretta Lynch?

Right One Cue:  Obama Pushes Gun Grab Following Attack On Dallas Police.  He makes no mention of Black Lives Matter, a racist, violent, socialist group he has all but endorsed as President.  He makes no mention of the culture of hate and divisiveness his administration has built for the last eight years.  No, instead, Barack Obama once again uses tragedy born of the racial tensions he himself has created, to go after gun rights in America.

An Act of Terror Against the Men and Women of Law Enforcement.  We learned on Friday morning [7/8/2016] that one of the suspects "stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers," according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown.  He also allegedly told a hostage negotiator that his anger was fueled by the Black Lives Matter movement and the recent shootings of African-American individuals at the hands of police.  What occurred Thursday evening must be distinguished from legitimate acts of protest, but it must also be distinguished from a random act of violence in and of itself.  What occurred Thursday evening was indeed an act of terror perpetrated against the entire law enforcement community.  President Barack Obama rightly condemned the violence in Dallas as "vicious, calculated, and despicable."  But the president offered these words only after having spent the past seven years routinely criticizing the entire law enforcement community and criminal justice system in the wake of various isolated controversies.

Calls for Black Lives Matter to be recognised as 'terrorist organisation' after Dallas shootings.  More than 4,000 people have signed a White House petition urging the US Federal Government to formally recognise the Black Lives Matter (BLM) campaign as a "terrorist organsiation".  The calls come as five police officers were shot dead by snipers during a BLM protest in Dallas on 7 July.  The petition was started one day before the shooting, however, it gained popularity following events in Dallas.  Anyone aged 13 or older can sign a petition on the website and the White House will respond to the request should it gain 100,000 signatures by 5 August.

Meet the Leftist Reverend Behind the Dallas Black Lives Matter Protest.  The lead organizer of the Dallas protest where snipers opened fire on police officers has made several disturbing comments on his social media.  A Breitbart News review of Jeff Hood's internet footprint revealed regular posts about the apocalypse, violent retribution to police, and Hood even recently posted about the 2013 death of a self proclaimed "social justice warrior" who committed suicide by lighting himself on fire in front of a shopping mall in Texas.  Video of Hood speaking on camera just after the attack surfaced on social media where Hood talks about "leading the protest."

BLM Supporters Celebrate Dallas Attack On Twitter.  A sniper-style ambush killed five Dallas police officers and wounded seven others late Thursday night, an act celebrated by Black Lives Matter supporters on Twitter.

Infiltrating the #BlackLivesMatter Cult.  The Black Lives Matter cult is animated by a hatred of normal American values.  Its members idolize convicted, unrepentant black militants and cop-killers Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu Jamal and have declared "war" on law enforcement.  While its members openly call for police officers to be assassinated, its leaders, wishing to seem more respectable before the TV cameras, downplay the insurrectionary rhetoric whenever a member kills a cop.  Black Lives Matter disciple Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, a 25-year-old black man, murdered 31-year-old white Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder on Sunday night [9/13/2015].

Black Lives Matter activists destroy 'Blue Lives Matter' display at Dartmouth College.  The Dartmouth College Republicans received permission from the college to put up a "Blue Lives Matter" display honoring law-enforcement work during National Police Week.  After just one day, the display was completely removed and replaced with Black Lives Matter signs, according to the Dartmouth Review, a conservative newspaper.  On Thursday, May 12, after a three-week process to gain access to the bulletin board, the College Republicans put up their display.  By 9 a.m. the following morning, social media was buzzing about the display.

Dartmouth BLM Protesters Tear Down Memorial To Slain Police.  A controversy has erupted at Dartmouth College after a pro-police display was torn down by Black Lives Matter activists, who denounced it for memorializing the "perpetrators" of "state violence."

Police Doc: Black Lives Matter Protesters Started Confrontation That Led to Minneapolis Shooting.  A search warrant related to the shooting of five Black Lives Matter protesters in Minneapolis reveals new details that may strengthen the case that the shooting was an act of self-defense by white suspects who were being assaulted by black protesters. [...] Evidence suggests that the Minneapolis police were aware that the initiation of force came from the black protesters.

Farrakhan hate fest threatens 'reparations, or else!'  Louis Farrakhan commemorated the 20th anniversary of the so-called "Million Man March" Saturday [10/10/2015] with the kind of hate fest that would have made the KKK or skinheads proud.  The rally was called "Justice or Else!" — a threat aimed at the heart of America.  This demagogue has openly incited violence against whites and police in the lead-up to the event, and a number of speakers Saturday followed suit.  Tony Russell of Hands Up United Ferguson said the "or else!" in the event's title is a threat for more riots if their demands aren't met.  Farrakhan and Black Lives Matter know that as long as Obama is president, he will never authorize federal authorities to arrest black racists.

Obama #BlackLivesMatter Leader Demands New Constitution or There will be "Bullets".  A "Black Lives Matter" leader has issued a dire warning for the United States:  the United States needs a new Constitution or else, he warns, "it will be the bullet" for the US.  Blake Simons, who wrote an article detailing his ideas, is the Deputy Comms Director of "Afrikan Black Coalition."

Obama rolls out the White House red carpet for racist, pro-cop-killing movement.  Black Lives Matter is animated not only by anti-white racism but by a hatred of normal American values, including law and order.  Its members denounce the U.S. for imagined institutional racism and discrimination against African-Americans.  Members idolize convicted, unrepentant cop-killers Assata Shakur and Mumia Abu Jamal, both of whom are black, and have declared "war" on law enforcement.  Its members openly call for police officers to be assassinated.  Black Lives Matter activist Joseph Thomas Johnson-Shanks, a 25-year-old black man, murdered 31-year-old white Kentucky State Trooper Joseph Cameron Ponder last Sunday night.  Johnson-Shanks apparently committed suicide-by-cop when troopers caught up with him the next morning.  The convicted felon pointed a gun at police and they shot him in self-defense.  The White House love fest Wednesday [9/16/2015] came after several high-profile attacks on law enforcement across America.

Black Lives Matter protesters berate white students studying at Dartmouth library.  Roughly 150 Black Lives Matter protesters reportedly stormed a library at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire, Thursday night [11/12/2015] to berate students studying there for their supposed racial privilege.  The Dartmouth Review, an independent newspaper at the private Ivy League college, reported that protesters marched into the Baker-Berry Library shouting profanity and berating white students.

#BlackLivesMatter Protesters Disrupt Students in Library.  Protesters at Dartmouth University disrupted students studying in the library, reportedly directing profanity towards white students and physically pushing others. [...] In addition, the [Dartmouth] Review reports that some of protesters became physically violent:  "Men and women alike were pushed and shoved by the group.  'If we can't have it, shut it down!' they cried.

FBI Director Sees Alarming Spike In Murder Rate — Doubles Down on 'Ferguson Effect'.  Yes, crime is a complicated, hard issue, but right now law enforcement is besieged by a movement that casts police as collection of racist villains, excuses the violence of high-crime communities, and does so on the basis of a series of monstrous (and now well-known) lies.  Given the horrifying and increasing death toll in many of our nation's cities, Black Lives Matter may be the most inaccurately named political movement in modern political history.

Black Lives Matter organizer: Black-on-black crime is a 'myth'.  An organizer for the Black Lives Matter movement suggested Thursday [4/7/2016] on CNN that the problem of black-on-black crime is a "myth," saying the activist movement is focusing on resolving broader issues of systemic violence.  During a discussion about a Facebook video posted by former NFL great Ray Lewis that questions the focus of the Black Lives Matter movement, Aaron Goggans dismissed the notion of black-on-black crime.

Ray Lewis rips Black Lives Matter movement for ignoring black-on-black crime.  A Facebook video of former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement for ignoring black-on-black crime has gone viral.  "I'm trying to figure out if black lives really matter," an emotional Mr. Lewis said in the video posted on his personal page Saturday [4/2/2016].  "The March murder rate rose by 29 percent, but we're not rioting in the streets over black-on-black crime.["]

Nobody cares about this issue, unless they hear about it in a black-on-black Facebook video.

Is the Left Even on America's Side Anymore?  [Scroll down]  Black Lives Matter is a movement built on the fiction that police have declared open season on innocent black Americans.  According to progressive fictions, police are the agents of a "white supremacist society" — a claim alone that should make one wary of the sanity of those who advance it.  The facts belie the very basis of the claim that African Americans are being indiscriminately gunned down by police:  African-American males, accounting for 6 percent of the population are responsible for more than 40 percent of violent crimes.  But a Washington Post report on all 980 police shootings of 2015 reveals that only 4 percent of fatal police shootings involved white officers and black victims, while in "three-quarters of the incidents, cops were either under attack themselves or defending civilians," or, as Michael Walsh observed in the New York Post, police officers were "in other words, doing their jobs."

Blame Black Lives Matter Movement for Dallas Carnage.  The Dallas shootings are the logical extension of the demonization of police officers by the racial grievance industry spearheaded by the Black Lives Matter movement, a demonization that began almost as soon as President Obama took office.

Detroit man who murdered two white teens declares 'black lives matter' during sentencing.  A black man who was found guilty of murdering two white teenagers execution-style in a vacant Detroit field defiantly declared "black lives matter" Wednesday [1/21/2015] before being sentenced to life in prison.  Fredrick Young and Felando Hunter were sentenced Wednesday to life in prison without parole for robbing, torturing and murdering Jourdan Bobbish and Jacob Kudla, who had met up with them in July 2012 to buy drugs, a local Fox affiliate reported.

Man convicted of murdering two white teens cries out 'black lives matter' during sentencing.  One of the men who tortured and murdered two white teenage boys in Detroit two years ago proclaimed, "Black lives matter" before being sentenced to life in prison. [...] The killers apparently yawned and "swaggered" while being sentenced.

Marine Allegedly Assaulted Mid-Burger At McDonald's, As Gang Yelled 'Do You Believe Black Lives Matter?'.  A former Marine became the target of an alleged assault in a McDonald's Friday night [2/12/2016], as a crowd of youths cornered him and demanded he answer the question, "do you believe black lives matter?"  Before knocking him unconscious and robbing him.  Christopher Marquez, a veteran of Iraq and recipient of the Bronze Star for valor, said he was dining at a McDonald's in northwest D.C. when a group of black teenagers came up to him and allegedly began harassing him about the black lives matter movement.  Marquez ignored them which prompted calls and shouts that he was a racist.

Marine Hero: I Was Attacked at DC McDonald's 'Because of My Skin Color'.  A decorated U.S. Marine who was beaten and robbed at a Washington D.C. McDonald's said this morning that the attack was a "hate crime."  Veteran Marine Sgt. Christopher Marquez, who earned a Bronze Star for his heroism in Iraq, spoke out today [2/18/2016] in an exclusive Fox and Friends interview.  Marquez said that four or five males — along with at least one female — asked him if "black lives mattered" to him as he was eating last Friday [2/12/2016].

The Editor says...
Notice that it is the victim who is calling this a hate crime — not the police.

Bret Baier: Media Silent on Hate Crime Against Decorated Marine.  Fox News Host, Bret Baier called the rest of the media out Thursday evening [2/18/2016] during his update of the story of the Marine assaulted and robbed by apparent Black Lives Matter supporters.  "The story has received very little national attention, except on this channel."  Baier said of the media's silence on the attack.  Sergeant Chris Marquez was knocked unconscious outside of a Washington D.C. McDonalds, February 12, by black youths that were harassing him and asking him if he believed black lives mattered.  Sgt. Marquez received injuries to his head and neck as a result of the attack.

'A Hate Crime': Veteran Assaulted Calls On Black Lives Matter To Condemn Attack.  The Marine called a racist and subsequently assaulted by a gang of teenagers outside a Washington, D.C., McDonald's is calling on the Black Lives Matter activist group to condemn the attack.  Chris Marquez, a decorated Marine veteran who received the Bronze Star for valor during his service in Iraq, was cornered by a group of black teenagers Feb. 12, who allegedly asked him "do you believe black lives matter?"  He was later followed out the door and brutally hit on the side of the head by a suspect wielding a handgun.  Video shows a number of individuals descend on Marquez as he lays unconscious, stealing his possessions and kicking his body.

2 suspects arrested in beating of Marine outside McDonald's.  Two suspects have been arrested in the brutal beating of an Iraq War veteran outside a McDonald's in Washington, D.C., FOX 5 reported Tuesday [2/23/2016].  Police arrested a 17-year-old male and a 17-year-old female suspected of participating in the attack on Marine vet Christopher Marquez on Feb. 12.  The male was charged with aggravated assault and the female was charged with robbery, according to the Marine Corps Times.  The names of the suspects have not been released.  Authorities said a third suspect has been identified in the assault, though that person is not in custody, FOX 5 reported.

GIRL and boy, both 17, charged with vicious attack on decorated Iraq War veteran in McDonald's after asking him if 'black lives matter'.  Two teenagers have been charged with viciously attacking and robbing a decorated Iraq War veteran outside a Washington D.C. McDonald's two weeks ago.  The 17-year-olds — one male, one female — were detained on Tuesday [2/23/2016] in connection with the attack on Chris Marquez, 30, a US Marine whose heroic actions inspired two statues.  Police are still pursuing a third suspect.  Their names have not been released.

Still think Black Lives Matter is a good thing?  In case you're still under the delusion that Black Lives Matter is anything other than domestic terrorism, check out what savage gangs of young Blacks are being encouraged to do in the most mundane sorts of places... like a McDonald's in Washington DC.  If a famously decorated Marine is fair game, who's safe from this Black Hitler Youth?

Off-duty cop shoots dead black football star, 20, who had bipolar disorder after he broke into the officer's home following an online argument about Black Lives Matter.  An off-duty police officer shot and killed a young black man after he broke into his St Louis home Saturday evening, following an argument over Black Lives Matter.  The family, who were in the house at the time, said the victim was known to them and had recently had an argument with the officer about the growing unrest over police violence, according to CBS.  Tyler Gebhard, 20, had rung the doorbell of the Lakeshire home around 5.30 pm Saturday, police say.  The officer's wife and infant answered the door and after seeing who it was, immediately ran upstairs to hide with her mother-in-law.

Intruder shot by off-duty St.  Louis County officer after online argument about Black Lives Matter, family says.  A former Affton High School football standout forced his way into a South County home and was shot and killed by an off-duty officer inside after a Facebook dispute over Black Lives Matter apparently boiled over late Saturday afternoon [7/9/2016].  That's what can be pieced together from the accounts of police and an uncle of Tyler Gebhard, who said the young man had been struggling with mental health issues.

Why has there been an exodus of black residents from West Coast liberal hubs?  The Black Lives Matter movement has brought the challenges facing black America to the fore, and introduced racially conscious quality-of-life questions into the national debate.  How are black residents in America's cities faring?  And how are those cities doing in meeting the aspirations of their black residents, judged especially by the ultimate barometer:  whether blacks choose to move to these cities, or stay in them?  Though results vary to some extent, the broad trend is clear:  West Coast progressive enclaves are either seeing an exodus of blacks or are failing to attract them.  Midwestern and Northeastern urban areas are attracting blacks to the extent that they are affordable or providing middle class economic opportunities.  And Southern cities are now experiencing the most significant gains.
