The rhetoric of the Black Lives Matter movement and other race baiting interest groups has gotten out of control. While stating “All Lives Matter” is somehow deemed controversial these days, flat out threats of murder during intimidating protests are apparently fine.
The killing of police officers in places like New York -and now Texas- go unmentioned by progressives who don’t want to distract from their political agendas.
Armed Black Panther members marched in front of the Waller County jail and shouted, “You’re gonna stop doing what you’re doing, or we will start creeping up on you in the darkness.”
The statement was made just two weeks prior to the assassination of a Harris County deputy sheriff.
Shannon Miles, a black male, allegedly came “creeping up” behind Harris County Deputy Darren Goforth in the darkness on the night of August 28. While Goforth stood at a convenience store pumping gas into his patrol vehicle, Miles allegedly raised a pistol and shot him dead.
Meanwhile in Minnesota, the Black Lives Matter movement made parents and children at the Minnesota State Fair feel uncomfortable and threatened.
Along the way, protesters broke into a pointed refrain that has St. Paul police officers upset. Marchers chanted in unison, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.”
Remind me how these intimidating tactics and violent chants will help ease the tension between black Americans and law enforcement? The New Black Panther Party and the Black Lives Matter movement are too concerned with stirring up anger and raising their political clout within the Democratic Party to actually put forth solutions that will have a positive impact on the black community and society at large.
The only way those groups remain relevant is when they divide and anger, not unite and prosper, and they know it.
