Meme of the Day: Black Leaders Take Critical Aim at Black Lives Matter

The Gatestone Institute has been interviewing black liberals and conservatives regarding their views on Black Lives Matter in a three-part series. Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

The Marxist, Communist, LGBTQ, “Defund the Police” beliefs of BLM leaders appear to not be as widely held as the media makes it seem.

“Outrage is the natural response to the brutal killing of George Floyd. Yet outrage and clear, critical thinking seldom go hand in hand.”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Stanford University

Niger Innis, spokesman for the Congress of Racial Equality summed up his opposition to BLM’s stance on family, saying “We all know that black Americans — not just African Americans, Americans period — that are doing well are best when they come out of a traditional nuclear family. They seek to systematically disrupt that.”

Dr. Eric Wallace, President of the Freedom’s Journal Institute said big government is the problem. “Blacks have been ‘deprived of their human rights and dignity’ through government largess, which has perpetuated poverty and destroyed the black family.”

On the 50th anniversary of “The Great Society” in 2014, when the word “trillions”, was a staggering sum, the Heritage Foundation noted over $22 trillion had been spent on anti-poverty programs in the past 50 years. Yet here we are.

Meme of the Day: 100-Plus Days of Portland Riots Quietly Ending?

The Portland protests suddenly stopped after 100-plus days of violence and property damage. Was it the fires? They did not all pack up and move to the failed #WhiteHouseSiege that was scheduled to start September 17.

Nancy Pelosi admitted this week, for the first time since 2017, that leftist riots contained violence. Perhaps Democrats got some bad polling data, or they have escalated to ambushing police officers.

An internal document leaked from the Department of Homeland Security tells us what most already know: “We can’t say any longer that this violent situation is opportunistic… A core set of Threat actors are organized and show up night after night, and share common TTPs (Tactics, Techniques and Procedures). Threat actors who are motivated by Anarchists or ANTIFA (or a combination of both) ideologies to carry out acts of violence against State, Local and Federal authorities.”

Varvel Toon: Marxist Curriculum Under Scrutiny in Wisconsin

A school district meeting in Burlington, Wisconsin, near the Kenosha race riots, became heated as parents objected to a teacher to remove “critical race theory” indoctrination from federal contracts and other spending.

The Black Lives Matter movement has embraced “critical race theory,” a far-left worldview that racism is systemic and America is based on white supremacy. They also want to abolish the nuclear family, police, prisons and capitalism.

Officers Shot at Point Blank Range in Los Angeles

Update September 16: More police officers ambushed in nationwide attacks.

Two Los Angeles police deputies were shot in the head at point blank range on Saturday as they were parked on duty in Compton. Police are still hunting the for the shooter.

The officers were described only as a 24-year-old man and a 31-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy, both expected to miraculously survive.

Recently tensions have been rising since Los Angeles police shot a fleeing black man who had a gun near his feet during a chase, on August 31.

On June 5, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced he was shifting $150 million from the police budget to social justice programs, stating “It starts someplace, and we say we are going to be who we want to be or we’re going to continue being the killers that we are.”

The police union has condemned Garcetti’s rhetoric and use of the word “killers” while speaking of police.

On Saturday, protesters showed up at the hospital where the two police were in surgery, yelling “I hope they die!” (Video below.)

Black Lives Matter Protests Tracked by New Leftist Group

The newly created U.S. Crisis Moniter, involving socialist Princeton University, announced a project to track demonstrations related to the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement since the George Floyd riots.

Their obvious goal is to show how most BLM protests are peaceful, yet the report reveals 570 violent demonstrations in nearly 220 U.S. locations with 30 plus people dead.

The report’s methodology used a thin criteria to determine “riots.” Events where police were forced to use violence against protesters were not considered riots. Still, the largest 100 U.S. cities had 74 riots.

A lack of “riots” during the Seattle CHOP/CHAZ commune is highlighted, despite a neighborhood takeover, fires, shootings, rapes and several people dead.

Interesting data. Consider the source.

Yogi Love Toon: Anarchists, Marxists, BLM Protests Expanding Into Suburbs

After another violent weekend that saw a Trump supporter hunted down and executed in Portland, protesters invaded more family neighborhoods, chanting “Out of your homes and into the street.” in Washington D.C.

“They’re not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they’re not going to stop after Election Day. Everyone should take note of that on both levels, that they’re not going to let up, and they should not, and we should not.”

Wisconsin DOJ Takes Three Days to Reveal Blake Told Officers He Had Knife in Car

It took three days for the Wisconsin Department of Justice to reveal Jacob Blake told police he had a knife in his car, after he fought with two officers, ignored orders, opened his car door and reached into the car.

Why did it take so long? Incompetence or collusion?

An arrest warrant existed for Blake who had been charged with sexual assault, trespassing and disorderly conduct on July 6, yet records allegedly reveal no further details. Also Blake resisted arrest in 2015 after an incident where he allegedly pointed a gun during an altercation.

Video of Blake fighting with police, largely ignored by the media, appeared two days after riots. Why so long to release?

Democrat governor Tony Evers immediately injected racism into Blake’s shooting, stating on Aug. 23 that officials have “failed to recognize the racism in our state and our country for far too long.”

The dangers police officers face from knives is horrifying, with real life examples and reenactments depicted in “Surviving Edged Weapons.”
