In these turbulent times, one thing is crystal clear. BLM is succeeding in fomenting hatred of the police. In that, BLM has been getting help from notable Democrats like Barack Obama and Joe Biden, as well as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
When in July 2016 five Dallas police officers were slain in an ambush by a black man, then President Obama said black parents were right to fear that their children may be killed by police officers whenever they go outside. When George Floyd was murdered by a white cop, Obama called for police reform and said that it was “tragically, painfully, maddeningly ‘normal’” for millions of black Americans to be treated differently by a racist criminal justice system.
When Floyd was killed, Joe ‘White Obama’ Biden said that that all blacks fear for their safety from “bad police” and black children must be instructed to tolerate police abuse just so they can “make it home.”
A shameless Roger Goodell has joined the ranks of those who openly express their hatred of the police. He apologized to Colin Kaepernick and the league’s black players for failing to recognize the suffering blacks have experienced at the hands of the police. And the NFL is now considering listing the names of blacks killed by the police on uniforms through decals on helmets or patches on jerseys. My question to Goodell: How about decals and patches listing the names of cops killed by black men? Oh, there isn’t enough room on the helmets and the patches would cover the whole jersey, both front and back, as well as the sear of their pants.
I have called for the police to boycott the NFL and stop providing security during the league’s games. But the cops are not willing to give up those cushy off-duty jobs which pay them with blood money … the blood of their fellow officers that have been killed by black men.
And what about the now revered Kaepernick? When the riots broke out in Minneapolis, he called for a revolution. Kaepernick called the looters, arsonists and the thugs who attack the police “freedom fighters” and set up a fund to pay their legal expenses. You can look for the sorry asshole to be rewarded by the NFL for that with his signing by one of the teams.
America’s 800,000 law enforcement officers have about 375 million annual encounters with civilians. The vast majority of those encounters are uneventful. With that many LEOs thee are bound to be some cops who are racists, rapists, child molesters, psychologically challenged and unlawful killers, but they are only a very tiny fraction among the nations police forces.
And with 375 million annual encounters there are bound to be some encounters between civilians and bad cops. Even though cases of police brutality are a daily occurrence, they are a very tiny fraction of all the police encounters with civilians. But the media keeps cherry picking acts of police brutality to the extent that they appear to represent common police behavior. And the media does BLMs bidding by highlighting the incidents where white cops kill black men.
Joseph Goebbels, who was Hitler’s propaganda minister said “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” BLM. Obama and Biden would make Dr. Goebbels proud. The big lie is that black men are 2,5 times mope likely than white men to be killed by the police. The big lie is Obama saying that black parents are right to fear that their children may be killed by police officers whenever they go outside. The big lie is Biden saying that all blacks fear for their safety from “bad police” and black children must be instructed to tolerate police abuse just so they can “make it home.”
And since all those big lies are repeated time after time, the result is that, as Goebbels would have predicted, people have come to hate the police and now believe that cops are racists looking to mistreat and kill black men.
What about all those black men that have been shot by ‘racist’ killer cops? Another big lie! There is no evidence that any of the officers involved in the deaths of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks for instance were racists. Daniel Pantaleo, a good NYPD cop, was unjustly fired for trying to subdue a 395-pound Eric Garner who kept shoving several other cops away while resisting arrest. Derek Chauvin, the Minneapolis cop who murdered Floyd, was merely a jerk who should have known better than to keep his knee on the victim’s neck after he called out that he couldn’t breathe.
Since blacks constitute only 13 percent of the population that 2.5 figure is disingenuous because, as Heather Mac Donald, the Thomas W. Smith Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, reports: “African-Americans made up 53% of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and commit about 60% of robberies, though they are 13% of the population. The share of black victims [of police shootings] is less than what the black crime rate would predict, since police shootings are a function of how often officers encounter armed and violent suspects.”
BKM was never about saving black lives. It is not concerned about the daily killings of blacks by blacks in the nation’s urban centers. And it is actually not concerned about blacks killed by cops. The BLM movement was co-founded by Patrisse Cullors, an avowed Marxist, with the aim of overthrowing the American government. BLM uses the instances of white cops killing black men to create the kind of chaos that can bring down a government.
The mobs of protesters have succeeded in paralyzing the police. In Seattle they set up a cop-free zone and police officers had to be rescued by helicopters from the rooftop of their besieged precinct headquarters. In NYC, the mobs have set up an encampment at city hall and defaced the building with no police interference.
Droves of NYPD officers are prematurely putting in for retirement because they have been so demonized by the media and become hated by the very people they have been protecting from criminals. As one NY cop put it, the police feel like Vietnam veterans coming home to a country that hates them. And cops all over the country are afraid to do their job for fear of being arrested to face charges of assault and murder.
The cops are not interfering with the defacing and destruction of statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Christopher Columbus and Confederate war heroes, For instance, on July 4th a BLM mob in Baltimore toe down a statue of Columbus and tossed it into the harbor while the police who were present did absolutely nothing.
Jonathan S. Tobin, the editor-in-chief of JNS, notes: “If history teaches us anything, it is that a nation that destroys art and all symbols of the past quickly moves from attacking mixed-metal statues to live human beings. So if you think that once all the Confederates will be toppled that it will just be statues of Christopher Columbus, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson that are in danger, you’re wrong.”
In 1936, my family and I came to the good old USA. Until now, I’ve never seen such undeserved hatred of the police.
In order to overthrow the government you must first paralyze the police. The BLM mobs are doing exactly that. If you look at pictures of the protesters, you will see many more whites than blacks. They have been conned by the oft repeated big lies.
BLM is using the big lies to do what the Japanese tried but couldn’t do … destroy America. Tojo, Hitler and Goebbels must be laughing in their graves.
