Read The Story Here:
Like Baltimore, D.C. has experienced an upward swing in crime since the birth of the Black Lives Matter movement and the portrayal of the police as the bad and evil victimizer. To make the city safer, the Mayor announced an increase in law enforcement presence in high crime neighborhoods. This mayor is black and is aiming to make the lives of law abiding citizens (mostly black in D.C.) safer. And for this, Black Lives Matter movement warriors boo her and yell ‘More jobs not more jails’. I think these type of actions are revealing these movement warriors for who they really are. They are interested only in pushing police out of the way so that their illegal enterprises can prosper. Stopping crime means stopping business. They would rather keep black law-abiding people in danger of constant robbery, rape, and murder then celebrate steps to actually protect black lives. Unfortunately, the Mayor had to spend a good chunk of the time appeasing these MW’s by saying she understands and is on their side (hmmm the side of anti-police?).
EXPECT THESE MOVEMENT WARRIORS TO MAKE SOME/STRONG USE OF THIS EVENT IN COMMENTS AND SOCIAL MEDIA
White Supremacy/ Hate – If this was a white mayor, this would be an easy story for these MWs to pounce on. We, the good white citizens, are being attacked just for trying to bring order to a city. But still they will see arguments in general of blacks preferring crime to order and will run with generalizations and doom and gloom rants as usual.
Republicans – The fact that the democratic mayor was sympathetic to anti-police protesters will make good rant material for these MW’s. They will continue the picture of democrats as not wanting to support the government and the state, favoring the pro-criminal and anarchy nature of the BLM.
EXPECT THESE MOVEMENT WARRIORS TO BE SILENT OR ON THE DEFENSIVE
Black Lives Matter – Its getting harder and harder to explain and defend the actions of their MWs. Not really much to say in the way of racism when a black mayor simply wants to take steps to make black neighborhoods safer. Many in the middle are starting to wonder just what this movement is about, with extreme MWs no longer just protesting shootings of unarmed black men but the general role and responsibility of police in general.
