I’m sure you’ve all realized by now that to liberals, black lives matter only the the purpose of furthering political narratives.
BLM speaks exclusively on the issue of police violence – as if there aren’t more whites killed by police every year than blacks. If they actually cared about black lives, they would turn their attention to the 70% of blacks raised without fathers, the quality of inner city schooling, or job training programs. Heck – they could address gang violence in Chicago alone which is killing more blacks than police by a long-shot.
But they don’t.
Allen West has made the same observation, as he writes:
I recently did an interview which took the inane progressive socialist movement, Black Lives Matter, to task. The facts cannot be debated that this “movement” is not focused on its namesake, but rather on a politicized message sanctioned by the liberal left. And yesterday, I learned about a very horrible and sad occurrence in Chattanooga, Tennessee that should have us all angered.
As reported by the New York Daily News:
The mother of a baby girl who was paralyzed last year in a gang-related shooting was killed before she was to testify at the trial of her daughter’s shooter.
The bullet-riddled body of Bianca Horton, 26, a beloved mother-of-four, was found laid out on the side of a Chattanooga, Tenn. street Wednesday morning and cops are investigating whether the “gang-related” hit is linked to the trial of Cortez Sims, the man charged with a shooting that permanently injured her daughter.
“This one is very painful for the police department,” Chattanooga Police Chief Fred Fletcher, said to the Chattanooga Free Times Press.
Horton was well-known to the local police department after cops saved the life of her 2-year-old daughter, Zoey, who was left paralyzed from the waist down in a spray of bullets inside Horton’s apartment last January.
When cops arrived to the grisly scene and discovered the blood-covered baby, they wrapped the girl in their arms and sped off to the hospital instead of waiting for an ambulance.
“If it wasn’t for them, Zoey may not be here,” Horton told WRCB following last year’s shooting. The massacre also left one woman dead and injured Horton and the intended target of the shooting, Marcel “Baby Watts” Christopher.
Sims, who was 17 at the time of the shooting, was later arrested and thrown behind bars for the hit-job. Horton, who witnessed the shooting, was scheduled to testify against Sims in September, Melydia Clewell, a spokeswoman for District Attorney General’s Office, told the Chattanooga Times Free Press.
West: As I read this story tears came to my eyes, then I got mad as hell. Where are these white liberals who want to condemn law enforcement and funnel funds to this faux group to do their bidding while innocent blacks are losing their lives?
You’re more likely to be struck by lightening than killed by a police officer.
If Black Lives Matter really does care about black lives, I look forward to them addressing actual issues.
