Black Lives Matter Targets Jefferson

The Left’s Cultural Revolution intensifies.

By Matthew Vadum | 18 Sep 2017

The vandalization of a statute of University of Virginia founder Thomas Jefferson by students and Black Lives Matter rioters suggests the Left is escalating the ugly Cultural Revolution-style upheaval that President Obama encouraged in office.

This iconoclastic insurrectionism is spreading, as angry left-wing mobs topple statues of figures from the past they dislike. In Chicago, Bishop James Dukes of Liberation Christian Center is demanding that the names and statues of George Washington and Andrew Jackson be removed from parks. Others want Woodrow Wilson’s name excised from buildings and schools because he supported racial segregation. The list goes on and on.

The disorder in Charlottesville comes as a monument in Baltimore honoring Francis Scott Key, who wrote the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” was spray-painted with the words “racist anthem.” Leftist writer Jefferson Morley suggested on Tucker Carlson’s TV show that the vandalism was justified, but more on that in a moment.

As about a hundred students chanted “No Trump, no KKK, no racist UVA,” the Jefferson monument on the school’s main quad was draped in black and adorned with signs reading, “Black Lives Matter,” “TJ is a racist,” and “Fuck white supremacy.”

Here’s the antidote to St. Louis riots and rage

By Jesse Lee Peterson | 18 Sep 2017

The more you give in to angry people, the worse they get.

Case in point: black protesters in St. Louis, Missouri.

Violent Black Lives Matter protesters clashed with police after ex-St. Louis cop Jason Stockley was acquitted of first-degree murder in the 2011 shooting death of drug dealer Anthony Lamar-Smith.

Smith was attempting to flee from police when he slammed his vehicle into a police cruiser and took off, causing a dangerous high-speed chase. Stockley, who is white, claimed he shot the suspect, who is black, in self-defense because he thought Smith was reaching for a gun.

According to St. Louis Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson, the prosecutors failed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Officer Stockley did not act in self-defense.

Smith was out on parole for convictions of drug distribution, theft and illegal gun possession at the time of the shooting.

But facts don’t matter to angry blacks. The acquittal of Stockley gave Black Lives Matter license to riot and assault police. What began as a protest march erupted with a wild mob tearing through downtown St. Louis and through the city’s affluent areas. Protesters said they wanted whites to feel the pain.

Protesters burned American flags, damaged police cruisers and destroyed businesses. At least 10 officers were assaulted with bricks and bottles; 23 suspects were arrested. The violence caused local businesses to cancel major venues. Protesters also temporarily shut down a major mall in St. Louis. They chanted, “You kill one of us, we kill your economy,” and they carried Black Lives Matters signs.

‘Kill white people’ and ‘BLM’ are among graffiti that has been spray painted across highway walls, homes and election signs in Tampa in a week.

Workers were forced to paint over a section of wall on Gornto Lake Road in Brandon, Hillsborough County, on Wednesday to conceal the words ‘kill white people’.

At a nearby home, a Trump For President election sign was defaced with the letters BLM, which stands for Black Lives Matter, abcactionews.com reports.

Tampa has played host to a number of the movement’s protests in the wake of police killings of black men.

It is not clear who is responsible for the graffiti but it is the latest in a string of racially charged incidents in and around the city.

‘For us it’s criminal mischief, it’s definitely racial. It’s racially indicative, it’s hate speech,’ said Larry McKinnonn on behalf of the sheriff’s department.

Earlier this year hundreds gathered to march in a Black Lives Matter Tampa protest.

#BlackLivesMatter | More Protests, Assaults, and it’s a war zone in Charlotte

War zone in Charlotte: White man begs for mercy as he is beaten while a reporter is nearly dragged into a fire by rioters as people are told to stay home from work after police shooting of black father

Disturbing videos have emerged of protesters brutally attacking white bystanders in Charlotte as violent demonstrations continued to engulf the city, 48 hours after a black man was shot dead by police.
A man was dragged and beaten by a mob while begging for mercy, an unconscious photographer was almost tossed into a fire, and a CNN correspondent was slammed to the ground in the midst of the chaos.
It was the second night of unrest following the deadly shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, 43, by African-American cop, Brentley Vinson, 26, at an apartment complex on Tuesday afternoon.
Police said 44 people were arrested for a variety of crimes such as assault, breaking and entering, and failure to disperse. At least 14 people, including five cops, were taken to hospital.
North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency and has called in the National Guard after clashes on Wednesday night.
Major companies with offices in the downtown area – including Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Duke Energy – told employees not to come into work on Thursday.
Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts had considered putting a curfew in place in a bid to control the disorder, which is set to continue, but police have said they don’t think the restrictions are needed.
Roberts added that Scott’s family will be shown the video of the police shooting on Thursday, but it will not be released publicly.
Many businesses and buildings, including the NASCAR Hall of Fame, were hit by vandals and looters.
 
The Numbers Are In: Black Lives Matter Is Wrong about Police
Ever since the explosion of the Black Lives Matter movement, Americans have been bombarded with assertions that black men face a unique and dangerous threat — not from members of their own community but from the very law enforcement officers who are sworn to “serve and protect” them. Hashtags such as #DrivingWhileBlack and #WalkingWhileBlack have perpetuated a narrative that black Americans risk being gunned down by police simply because of the color of their skin. Using individual anecdotes of police misconduct and the now-discredited “hands up, don’t shoot” rallying cry, Black Lives Matter has built a case that American police are out of control.

With Friday’s horrific, execution-style murder of a sheriff’s deputy in Texas as just the most recent example, it’s hard not to feel it’s truly become open season on law enforcement.

We’ve discussed here the question of how much the ever-loudening national rhetoric of black victimization and oppression — accented by direct calls to violence by black radicals — is to blame for this very disturbing and downright frightening trend.

HOUSTON, Texas — One night after Deputy Darren Goforth was executed at a Chevron station in Houston, Texas, over a thousand people gathered at the site to memorialize the man who was apparently murdered simply because he wore a police uniform. There was an outpouring of support for Harris County Sheriff Deputy Goforth, and for law enforcement officers and their families.

Deputy Goforth was shot execution-style at a gas station on Friday night. The officer was in uniform and was putting gas in his patrol car at a Chevron station in northwest Houston. Witnesses told Breitbart Texas that the shooter shot the deputy in the back of the head and three times in the back.
