And naturally the MSM goes along with it.
Actually, they’re protesting the outrageously immoral and inhumane targeting, incarceration, and killings of blacks by the state and its goons. Absurdly, Trump says the solution is to increase the numbers and power of police officers with respect to the public. Black people don’t need a more powerful state. They need a far less powerful state–i.e., end the drug war completely, remove regulations that cause barriers to market entry and force the poor into low paying wage labor, radically increase the public’s civil rights with respect to how and when police are allowed to engage with “suspects,” and so forth.

What that sounds like to me is that your pushing the lefts agenda which is that the government doesn’t have the right to police certain people because of their color. I would be for that IF we also didn’t have the obligation to protect the innocents of that race.
- I think the chart spoke exactly to the situation. You shouldn’t put words in their mouths unless you’re privy to the behind the scenes meetings. And 2. you don’t know what civil rights means obviously. Civil rights is the gov’t telling us how we have to behave to other people…as if that IS EVEN under their purview. If you break the law, you are subject to the law. These people don’t want to be subject to the law. If you knew the difference between civil rights and civil liberties it might open your eyes.
Now, now, parse his claims a little. This part in particular:
“remove regulations that cause barriers to market entry and force the poor into low paying wage”
Is something even you would agree is going on. Because Detroit. Because Chicago. Because more than a handful of urban centers that have made it clear that letting their economy grow, is the last thing on their agenda.
Rush pointed out some interesting facts today:
Black man shot in Oklahoma by white cop. No protests, no riots.
Black man shot by black cop in North Carolina. Protests and riots.
70% of the arrests in Charlotte disturbances were people who don’t even live in North Carolina.
Oklahoma is a solid red state in November.
North Carolina is a close race in November.
High black turnout in North Carolina could give the state to Hillary.
Who orchestrated and financed these out of state agitators?
Draw your own conclusions. I’ve made mine.
OK, so he isn’t 100% wrong 100% of the time.
1. Black man shot in Oklahoma by white cop. No protests, no riots.
2. Black man shot by black cop in North Carolina. Protests and riots.
3. 70% of the arrests in Charlotte disturbances were people who don’t even live in North Carolina.
4. Oklahoma is a solid red state in November.
5. North Carolina is a close race in November.
6. High black turnout in North Carolina could give the state to Hillary.

Boy that is interesting. It almost sounds like the democrats are pushing for riots just to make sure that they get the black vote. Now to me that just confirms that they don’t care about black lives or putting them in danger just to further their cause. Once again I see that they demonstrated their credo “The end justifies the means”. Or another way of saying it (in this case) is blacks don’t matter as long as you get their votes. Sad to say but I like them better when they were KKK members. At least they were more honest back then.
I was thinking about the whole BLM thing & what they want. First off I’ll say that all lives matter, I think that’s obvious.
But basically they want to be free of pretty much everything & rule their own lives. Well oddly we already have a segment of society that does that. A segment where local, state & even federal authorities have no say. Indian Reservations. They have their own police that are appointed by whatever ruling family is in charge. It’s kind of a neat system if you think about it. You don’t need any training, don’t need to know the law, all you really need is to be related to someone or have them owe you a favor. Maybe that’s why you can buy Meth all over reservations. Oh & jobs are also controlled by “the family” in charge. Want one of those ok paying jobs serving drinks at a casino? You need to be young, pretty, & willing to earn that job however they want you to. Oh & as I said before there is a new “thing” on the reservation. Getting a divorce & either you want your kids or just don’t want to pay child support. Just have your ex disappear. I’ve heard about that happening 3 times just on one reservation & it’s not like your going to get caught.
So basically what they want is achievable. But first they are going to have to move to one certain area because you can’t mix 2 different legal systems.
Tell that to parent of the two year old child who shot while she was sleeping in her bed in her house by a gang banger in a drive-by shooting here in Tampa. These statements do nothing but blow smoke in YOUR face.
The really sad part of the whole BLM movement is this. If 5 police officers per week were told to go out & shoot a black person & nothing would happen…It still wouldn’t equal the number of blacks killed by blacks. So maybe, just maybe they have picked the wrong target to aim at. I “thought” when it first started that the object was to try to stop blacks from killing blacks but it seems to have changed. Now it’s much more of a US against THEM political movement that seems to be based on “we didn’t do anything wrong & they are picking on us”. Facts don’t seem to stand up to that if you look closely. My guess is that there are liberal blacks that are just as out of touch with reality as our liberal democrats & they are in charge of BLM.
BLM is prepared to make a martyr out of ANY Black who shot by a policeman even if that person is vicious criminal who is caught committing a crime. That’s why BLM has no credibility.
BLM is the enemy of the American People. MUslims are the enemy of the American people. The UN is the enemy of the American people. DEMOCRATS are the enemy of the American people. WE, the AMerican People need to wake up to that fact.
The idea that BLM is movement primarily dedicated to protesting white on black violence is shown to be factually inaccurate by the current North Carolina protests: a black officer killed a black civilian. It has nothing to do with white on black violence. BLM is protesting state violence and oppression. The fact that Republicans, a party allegedly devoted to “small government,” has no idea how to respond to this except to call for more police and state power is bitterly hilarious, and demonstrative of the utter moral corruption of the American Right.
Tell this to the parents of Tamir Rice, a 12-year old with a toy gun who was shot on sight.
Is this an “eye for an eye”?
You truncated my quote, which makes your assertion invalid. If you want to make a point, be honest, or leave other people’s statements out of it.
But more white people are killed by police than blacks. And BLM is absolutely not protesting when whites are killed by police. So it is not a movement against police killing citizens. BLM only cares when black people are killed by police, but also not when they’re killed by other blacks.
Black lives already clearly matter more to white people and police, than black lives matter to black people. The murder stats bear this out.
You are like on broken record on this state violence and oppression theme, and you are wrong. What do you propose to do with violent criminals when they are committing their crimes, sometimes injuring innocent people? What are you supposed to do with a criminal who has a gun in his or her hand, who can raise that weapon and kill someone in a split second? Do you think that police work is a suicide pact where the officer is expected to give their life up to an armed criminal to meet “your standard of civility?” What are you, an anarchist?
Objective people acknowledge that the police make mistakes. When the offense is heinous, as it appears to be in the case in Oklahoma, the officer is indicted. When it is justified, as it was in Ferguson, the officer should not be run out his job.
I’m very glad that there are not a huge number of people like you, who are determined to side with violent criminals the way Black Lives Matter does. If that was the standard, the rule of law and the conduct of a sane and safe society with go down the tubes. We would be back to what it was like in the “wild west” and the middle ages.
Are you opposed to civilization and the protection of honest, decent people? It appears that you are in the name of some excessive, distorted form of "libertarianism " that includes the right to kill, maim and rob other people. In your world it seems that criminals have the right to do whatever they want and deserve every level of tolerance for their lawless actions.
