Black Lives Don’t Matter To #BlackLivesMatter

Black Lives Don’t Matter To #BlackLivesMatter

We need to stop pretending that the group “Black Lives Matter” gives a damn 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. But for every “Where’s the beef?” there are a million “What beer drinkers drink when they’re not drinking beer.” “Black Lives Matter” is brilliant in its simplicity, which is why it works and why leftists latched onto it. But it’s a fraud.

If black lives mattered to Black Lives Matter, with the kind of resources they’re raking in, the amount of good they could do would be immeasurable. Community watch organizations could be started, diversion programs, education initiatives, and rewards could be offered for information leading to the arrest of any of the murderers of any of the thousands, especially black children, killed in cities across the country. 

Of course, they wouldn’t do that because it would involve the police and sending people to jail, and they don’t want the police to exist or anyone in prison. Plus, and this is the main reason, it wouldn’t help Democrats. 

These Marxists are getting rich perpetrating the greatest fraud on the American public since Bernie Madoff, only it’s all legal. Titans of industry, professional athletes, some of the most powerful politicians in the country are bowing to these anti-American opportunists and treating them like they’ve really hit on something…mostly because they have. Money. 

How much have they raised and where is it going? Who knows? When wrapped in “social justice,” no one seems to care. It’s all conveniently funneled through the Democratic Party’s fundraising apparatus “ActBlue,” so it’s unlikely anyone will bother to ask. 

The media is too busy pretending they’re legitimate, that there’s some epidemic of police murders and brutality against black people to even accidentally question anything about the group. Plus, why would they? No one bothered to ask about steroids when an average hitter started belting homeruns after putting on 40 pounds of muscle in the off-season, they were all on the same team. 

When Don Lemon insisted Black Lives Matter didn’t say anything about the scores of murdered black people because they were explicitly an organization against police brutality, he was speaking for the entire left-wing establishment. Either they’re ignorant or liars – neither option matters. 

The group has involved itself in everything from supporting illegal immigration to denouncing the existence of Israel, the idea that they can’t be bothered to work to prevent murders of the very people their existence claims to care about is simply stupid.

The only explanation is that they don’t care about black lives. Much like when the environmental movement morphed from global cooling to global warming and now the catch-all “climate change,” the “solution” leftists proposed remained the same – bigger government, more regulation, higher taxes, etc. The “movement” of Black Lives Matter is a convenient delivery device for a leftist agenda of wealth redistribution, socialized medicine, prison depopulation, and greater government control.

None of this is by accident, none of it is grassroots. Its leaders are “trained Marxists.” That they would be an appendage of the Democratic Party makes sense. The party that uses school shootings to dust off and market gun control legislation they’ve long wanted, or coronavirus pandemic emergency spending to shovel money to their donors and allies has long showed us who they were. Did anyone really think they wouldn’t use anything they could paint as racist as cover for their socialistic economic agenda? 

Democrats need cover for their generations of indifference toward the black community. They have exclusively presided over the destruction of majority black cities, the education of black children, and the disintegration of the black family, not to mention subsidizing and cheering the extermination of millions of black lives in the womb. 

Democrats need to convince people they’re the defenders of black lives to distract from how they and their policies have ruined them. But to Democrats, black lives don’t matter. The mob in the street, all those white college girls screaming at black police officers about how they don’t understand this or that about racism, to the people looting and destroying businesses or trying to burn down buildings, they don’t give a single damn about black lives. And “Black Lives Matter”? They care that the checks clear, their merchandise sells, and Democrats win. And all of them hope no one notices the truth before November.

If America Sucks So Bad, You’re Free to Leave

If America Sucks So Bad, You’re Free to Leave

Dear leftists, mutants, rioters, perma-protestors, and all those funding or cheering on these violent goons destroying once-great cities of every color and possible human configuration (I realize that’s a long way to address a letter, but I wanted to make sure to be “inclusive,” lest someone feel offended or left out).  

I write to you today on behalf of everyone else – not just the people who roll their eyes in disgust at the sight of you, but the people you don’t see – the people going to work every day, people with families or without, those stuck at home, those trying to get an actual education, and anyone else who loves this country, people of every race and ethnicity. In other words: normal Americans. 

You really seem to hate it here. So, we have a question: why are you still here? 

Honestly, if the country is such a cesspool of racism, sexism, homophobia, oppression, brutality, and is fundamentally rigged against everyone not born with a silver spoon in their mouth, why the hell have you stayed? 

It’s not like you’re in prison here, no matter how much you whine that it is like one. You’re out in the streets seemingly every other week “fighting oppression” over just about every way you can dream up to claim someone is oppressed, crying about the fascism of this or that without it sinking in that you’re still free to whine about imagined fascism and if we really were a fascist country you’d be in jail or dead, why not get out?

You don’t seem to have a coherent message beyond you hate it here, so leave. 

You’re spending an awful lot of time trying to impose a system of government you claim to be fighting, which is a testament to how you were failed by the education system, your parents, or both. Whatever the case, we don’t care. We aren’t interested in what you’re selling. Our Second Amendment makes it really difficult for you to force it on us, so your fight is likely an unwinnable one. 

Yes, you have the Democratic Party on your side now, but even a win in November won’t bring about the complete “transformation” you’re seeking. But there are countries out that that have what you want – North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba – or others that have lighter versions of the same. There’s a country for whatever level of stupid you happen to suffer from, or simply other places that aren’t “colonizing, imperialist, capitalistic” pits of despair, and you can get to any of them in a matter of hours. Go. 

Why spend your whole lives fighting for something you may never get when what you want is readily available elsewhere? What walls we do have on our borders aren’t meant to keep you in, you’re free to leave. 

Now, you may find that other countries, “more fair” countries, might not want you. Most of the rest of the world only takes in people who bring something to the table and, let’s face it, you’re not bringing much. But you could probably convince them to take you, if only for the propaganda victory against the U.S. It’s a sacrifice we’re willing to make.

I get that moving to a new country is tough, but if I were born into what I thought of as a prison with no hope for a better future, I’d find a way. In fact, I did. I was born and raised in Detroit, but I got out. It wasn’t easy. When I moved out I had about $500 to my name, one month’s rent, but I did it because there was nothing for me professionally there. What’s your excuse?

Here’s a deal I propose to help with that, actually. Since the government is just printing money like crazy right now (for a long time, really), how about a one-time payment of, say, $20,000 to help you start your new life in an existing Utopia? You pick it, we’ll move you there and give you some money to help you get started. 

It can be anywhere in the world, totally up to you. All you have to do is get them to accept you, and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll move your record collection, vintage video games, ferret or snake (no judgement), your books (from Communist Manifesto and Mao’s little red one to comic or White Fragility), and any clothes you have beyond the all black outfit you always wear to the country of your choice. 

There’s just one little catch, because there always is: you can’t come back. Part of this deal is when you sign for your check you are renouncing your US citizenship. Seems like a fair trade to me – why would you ever want to return to this disgusting place, right?

A free move, free cash, and freedom from the United States of America to wherever you can find. Imagine being able to live in a country without a single statue of Columbus, Washington, Jefferson, or anyone else you couldn’t hold a candle to if you lived to be 1,000. Wouldn’t that be great?  

One more caveat: you’ve got to take most, if not all, of your fellow travelers with you. Since you can’t come back, not even to visit (Skype with your parents or they can go visit you, if they still talk to you), think of it as a chance to see the world with your likeminded, gender non-conforming, flag burning, cop-hating, brick-throwing extended family. In other words, it’s a package deal. 

It shouldn’t be difficult to convince most of them, your old college professors and unshowered drum circle comrades likely don’t enjoy it here anymore than you do. Sure, it would damage the chances of Democrats winning in the fall, but that wouldn’t really matter anyway since 99 percent of the ones in Congress already would be going with you. 

What do you say? Do we have a deal? 

Sincerely, 

Everyone else

Tolerant’ Liberals Sure Hate Jews

‘Tolerant’ Liberals Sure Hate Jews

That the political left is a cesspool of hatred and bigotry is nothing new, a simple Internet search about college campus life over the past few years turns up disgusting, violent attacks on anyone not deemed “woke” enough. Not bowing down and kissing the boots of the Marxist ANTIFA or “Black Lives Matter” or whatever fascistic flavor of the moment Democrats are embracing to terrorize the public into submission has become so “normal” that even when it takes out a fellow useful idiot in the media, it barely registers as a news story anymore. But there is one form of hatred that doesn’t rate a blip on the radar of the leftist media, mostly because it is a pandemic among their fellow travelers: anti-Semitism. 

Support police and they’ll come for you. Don’t sufficiently support protests, they’ll come for you. Celebrate the United States and men who founded it and they’ll come for you. Mention the biological fact that there are only two genders and they’ll come for you. Say vile things about Jews, or amplify those who do, and you’re likely to be met with muted crickets.

The latest example is Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson posting an anti-Semitic quote from Adolf Hitler to his Instagram account. The quote was a fake, but the sentiment wasn’t. This wasn’t Jackson’s only dive into the anti-Semitic pool. Turns out he’s also a big fan of Louis Farrakhan who hates Jews more than he hates white people. 

Jackson was forced into the least sincere of all human actions – the forced apology. In his, Jackson tried to justify his stupidity by claiming he wanted to “enlighten my people” by sharing what he thought was a Hitler quote. “I probably never shouldn’t have posted anything that Hitler did cuz Hitler was a bad person,” he added. Ya think?

“You know, I just hopefully everybody respects my path on my opinions to try to just enlighten my people and just let everybody know there’s no hatred involved,” Jackson finished. 

Putting aside the absurdity of using what you think is a Hitler quote to “enlighten” anyone, other than as a cautionary tale, and the inherent bigotry of the phrase “my people,” Jackson isn’t unique or alone in his embrace of anti-Semitism. 

There is no bigger or prouder anti-Semite in the country than Farrakhan, who only takes a break from rambling about Jews to attack white people. That an NFL star would amplify him should cause outrage. But it hasn’t, at least not in any measurable way. 

After releasing his “hostage” apology video, the Eagles fined Jackson an undisclosed amount and that’s about it. Saints quarterback Drew Brees is currently groveling on apology 739 for saying he wouldn’t disrespect the American flag and he’s still being attacked by has-beens like Eminem.

Jackson’s “mistake” was using Hitler, not anti-Semitism. Hitler can’t be ignored, everyone understands what a monster he was (which is why the left is working so hard to portray the progressive socialist into a right-winger). Farrakhan, on the other hand, had many nice things to say about Hitler over the course of his career. Why does he get a pass?

The rabid anti-Semitism of Farrakhan has been long known, he’s said horrible things enough times on camera that living under a rock for the last 40 years is the only way to avoid it. Yet Louis is now almost mainstreamed by the left. If they hadn’t been able to rehabilitate Al Sharpton’s racism and anti-Semitism, Farrakhan was waiting in the wings. 

Somehow, to many celebrities, cops are the enemy who needs to be destroyed, but Louis Farrakhan is someone to be celebrated. Chelsea Handler, Lisa Rina, Sean Hayes, etc., recently praised a video of him

A streaming service from Fox Broadcasting, called “Fox Soul,” planned to air a speech by Farrakhan on the 4th of July, because what better way to celebrate the founding of the country than publicizing a racist? Once people noticed, it was canceled. But it was moved to something called “Revolt TV,” which is owned by Sean “Diddy” Combs. Not a single “mainstream” media outlet bothered to mention it.

Rapper and actor Ice Cube proudly promotes Farrakhan on social media. “The Honorable Louis Farrakhan continues to warn America to this very second and he’s labeled one of your ‘evil names’ and you turn your ears off.  Why is the truth so offensive that you can’t stand to hear it?” he recently tweeted (one of many similar tweets dripping with anti-Semitism from him). 

While DeSean Jackson deserves scorn for his actions, why do these other people escape the same? Why is Louis Farrakhan acceptable? Why is anti-Semitism glossed over so casually? Black Lives Matter gets a pass for their hatred of Israel (it’s been framed as the movement being “hijacked,” but it’s not – it’s who leftists are). Leaders of the Women’s March had a history of anti-Jewish comments and you barely heard about it. In fact, the political left is marinated in hatred of Jews, starting on college campuses and ending in a relentless stream of attacks on Jews on the streets of New York City, and it barely creates a ripple of coverage. 

The left claims to be against hate, but they aren’t. They use it, they foment it, they direct it. Liberals manufacture it and scream about it at the top of their lungs when it suits their needs, but when it comes to Jewish people, they’re blind, deaf, and mute. 

Anti-Semitism is alive and well, and it’s being mainstreamed by some big names in liberal circles. The embrace of Louis Farrakhan is just the symptom, the disease is the liberals who believe it works.
