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.

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.

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:

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."

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 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.

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 Editor says...
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.
