Texas Sheriff Parnell McNamara has received backlash from Black Lives Matter over an Ad he took out in the Tribune newspaper.
McNamara was sick and tired of people accusing the phrase, “All lives matter,” of being a racial put-down, and politically incorrect to say.
McNamara’s Ad read,
“ALL LIVES MATTER!”
“ALL LIVES MATTER. YOUR LIFE MATTERS, MINE, POLICE, JOHN Q CITIZEN. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT COLOR YOU ARE.
EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS A RIGHT TO LIVE.”
McNamara is sticking with his statement and is apologizing to no one for it.
McNamarus believes that the Black Lives Matter movement is responsible for the anti-police movement.
“I KNOW OF NO POLICE OFFICER THAT PUTS HIS BADGE AND GUN ON IN THE MORNING AND GOES TO WORK WANTING TO HURT SOMEONE OR KILL SOMEONE.”
Joe Weltera, critic of the Ad and chairman of the Community Race Relations Coalition board, told the Tribune…
“YOU CAN SAY, ‘ALL LIVES MATTER,’ BUT THE FACT IS THROUGHOUT OUR HISTORY, AND EVEN CURRENTLY, WE DO NOT VALUE BLACK LIVES AS MUCH AS WE DO OTHER LIVES.”
To prove his point, Welter cites a statistic that was published in the Washington Post:
“OF ALL OF THE UNARMED PEOPLE SHOT AND KILLED BY POLICE IN THE UNITED STATES IN 2015, 40 PERCENT OF THEM WERE BLACK MEN.”
This may sound like a winning statistic for the Black Lives Matter movement, but it’s just a tricky set of numbers that the Obama administration uses to illustrate a false narrative of racism. There is more to the story then BLM would like the public to know.
Keep in mind that Police officers are called into situations like traffic stops or domestic violence disputes with no prior knowledge of the race of the person’s involved. Officers are leery of African American men in some situation because of a statistic that reveals that American police officers are 18 times more likely to be shot and killed by a black man than an unarmed black man is to be shot and killed by an officer. Many of these unarmed shootings occur while the victim is assaulting the police officer, or trying to steal the officer’s weapons.
For example, the Micheal Brown case that cemented the Black Lives Matter movement. Brown was unarmed when he was shot, but had already robbed a convenience store, ruffed up a store employee and attacked Officer Wilson. Although Brown is included in the 40% Statistic, he’s also a criminal and not an innocent Black man who was racially profiled by police, like BLM would have you believe.
All evidence exposes that Brown had reached into Officer Wilson’s vehicle, tried to take the officer’s gun and after being shot in the hand, while his hand was inside the vehicle, took off running. Wilson pursued brown, and at some point, Brown charged at officer Wilson. Officer Wilson had to make a split-second decision, whether or not to shoot Brown who was unarmed, or give the 300-pound, young man, a second chance to overtake him and possibly kill him. The Left uses the Brown case as an example of police brutality. The left doesn’t care that Brown was a criminal and was attacking a police officer, it only matters that Brown was unarmed and was shot. This is the type of lies the Black Lives Matter movement is based on.
Using lies and twisted facts Black Lives Matter movement hopes to impact future generations of black men to disobey and murder police officers. This is why Texas McNamara took out the Ad in the newspaper, he felt it crucial to stand up to BLM and voice his opinion.
