Black Lives Matter’s Dallas about-face

By definition, every leftist political organ—specifically Democrats (like Barack Obama) and their propagandist creature the MSM—is inherently amoral and patently two-faced. Epitomized by Bill and Hillary Clinton, they say in the moment exactly that which is politically self-serving. To these shameless hypocrites, the fact that what is said now completely negates what was said previously doesn’t matter. Any track record or past history does not exist (read: Democrats’ historical support of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow laws etc.)

Specifically, less than 48 hours ago, a piece surmising that Black Lives Matter proponents populate the “The Twilight Zone” was published. Only a theory, the ink—same as the blue blood outrageously shed by 5 in Dallas “coincidentally” at a Black Lives Matter rally—has barely dried. Now, by today’s sudden 180 degree flip, BLM suddenly condemns the murder of police they have publicly clamored for—for years?

How convenient to have magically forgotten a December 13, 2014 New York protest in which they repeatedly shouted: “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now.” Think that’s just an anomaly? Almost one year ago, in Minnesota on Saturday, August 29, 2015, they chanted in unison “Pigs [cops] in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon.” However, it would be incorrect to assume that today’s sudden mass denial is a recent phenomenon. The seed of this cover up started with Rashad Turner (lead organizer of BLM, St. Paul) that following Monday, August 31, 2015. On CNN with Brooke Baldwin, this spokesman for an anarchist death cult laughably claimed their public call to violence was “not speaking of killing a police officer.” Was Mr. Turner channeling Bill Clinton’s “It depends upon what the meaning of the world ‘is’ is”? So the unambiguous advocacy of murdering cops is suddenly not that?

Don’t listen to what we said then, listen to what we say now? Seriously? Forget your lying ears? One is instantly reminded of Annie Wilkes unhinged rant about mass amnesia in “Misery” (1990).

Speaking of misery and Dallas, Black Lives Matter has gotten what it has previously clearly yearned for. For our part, the rest of us must forgive them all their mistakes. Yet, that’s a very different thing than pretending they never happened in the first place. Hopefully, this will become a defining mea culpa moment for them. If that is the case, they must end their violent hate speech. Like cocooned caterpillar to butterfly, they must immediately transform—by adopting the peaceful protest conduct of MLK. Then black lives truly will matter—same as blue ones.
