Ever think to yourself that the Black Lives Matter movement can’t get any more insane?
Don’t kid yourself. They’re Leftist – but so far-Left that they’ll make Hillary Clinton seem reasonable by comparison. The movement recently released a list of demands…. the vast minority of which actually had to do with police brutality.
Among the demands of Black Lives Matter are reparations for slavery, socialized medicine, free college, reparations for “food apartheid,” and even restoring Glass-Stegall’s ban on affiliations between investment and commercial banks. So it’s pretty obvious that police brutality was just a Trojan horse for the movement to enter the public discourse – their actual goals are far more radical than just combating police brutality.
For them, even Hillary Clinton isn’t liberal enough, and their founder just founded on her. Conservative Tribune reports:
Alicia Garza, founder of the controversial group, made a strong case against Clinton in an interview with Bloomberg Businessweek — which could ultimately come back to haunt the Democrats in November:
“Early on, she would say, ‘Yes, black lives matter,’ but she wouldn’t acknowledge her role in the processes that fundamentally showed black lives did not matter,” Garza said.
The activist leader continued in her condemnation — in April, former President Bill Clinton told BLM protesters that they were actually “defending the people who kill the lives (they) say matter,” which Garza passed off as unwarranted diatribe.
“I was angry about that for about a month,” she stated. “Seriously, like every single day. It’s reprehensible for him to defend the impacts his policies have had on our communities.”
Were Bill’s comments off base? Of course not. Garza idolizes Assata Shakur, a convicted cop killer who fled to Cuba. Garza does make one comment though that I can’t help but agree with:
“The Clintons use black people for votes,” she said, “but then don’t do anything for black communities after they’re elected. They use us for photo ops.”
Ain’t that the truth.
Under Obama, race relations have worsened to their worst since the LA race riots in the nineties. Additionally, fewer than half of young black men are working full-time, black home ownership has declined, and blacks earn less.
Liberals campaign on helping black America, but they certainly don’t practice what they preach.
