The so-called “Black Lives Matter” movement has become quite powerful. Black Lives Matter, or BLM as it’s colloquially known, has our elites figuratively, and sometimes, literally, kneeling before them and donating big bucks to their cause.
Therefore, it’s relevant to point out that BLM was founded by open communists, who admired the regime of Fidel Castro in Cuba.
I’ve been to Cuba, on a mission trip, and let me tell you, it’s a poverty-stricken country with a totalitarian government.
Is that what they want for the United States?
According to BLM and its allies, American cops have a systematic bias against black men. Is that true?
The U.S. is a big country, with a population of 330 million. There are cases of police abuse and corruption, and such police officers should be punished. I don’t know anybody who disagrees with that sentiment.
But the assertion that there is a systematic police bias against black males, leading to their death, is a patent falsehood, disproven by careful research. (See here and here.) One reason young black males have so many run-ins with law enforcement is that they commit more crimes than any other group. That’s not popular to say, but statistics show that over half the murders in our country are committed by blacks. Tragically, most blacks who are murdered are murdered by other blacks.
But to BLM, black murder victims don’t matter unless they were killed by whites; just another day in the Big City.
The recent series of nationwide protests in response to the George Floyd death in Minneapolis have been accompanied by widespread looting and even more crime than usual.
A June 8 article in the Chicago Sun-Times is titled: 18 murders in 24 hours: Inside the most violent day in 60 years in Chicago.
A June 10 article about New York City: Shootings Surge, Murders up over 100 Percent as Protesters Flood NYC .
How is all this mayhem going to improve the situation for black people affected by this violence? Do their lives matter?
Since 2016 BLM has also been calling on the federal government to end all deportations.
Illegal immigration does not help black Americans. In fact, as Rev. Darrell C. Scott has opined, it has hurt them. So why does this movement support it?
The traditional civil rights movement was rightfully based on the argument that black American citizens should have the same rights as other American citizens. But the promotion of illegal immigration devalues the citizenship of all Americans no matter their skin color.
While Black Lives Matter supports illegal immigration, at the street level, all this violence actually worsens interracial, intercultural relations. The recent violence has brought conflict between black looters and Latino gangs. [Click here to see a short video of a Latino expelling a black looter from his neighborhood (profanity alert)].
This story notes that “stores owned by immigrants of Arab and Muslim origin are among the many businesses that were pillaged and destroyed … ”
How is all the destruction and disunity wrought by these riots going to help the economy of these cities?
The 7-Sigma manufacturing company’s factory was burned to the ground in Minneapolis. (See photo here).
Kris Wyrobek, 7-Sigma’s owner said, “They don’t care about my business. They didn’t protect our people. We were all on our own.”
Can you blame Wyrobek for leaving? He’s got to rebuild the factory, anyway. Why not somewhere safer?
How many other businesses will leave? Would you invest money in one of these cities? How will new jobs be created? How will immigrant-owned small businesses fare?
“Black Lives Matter” is a totalitarian, anti-American movement which should not be allowed to set the agenda for the future of our country.
