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.”

#BlackLivesMatter | Violence Against Police Officers

Police: ‘Sheer brutality’ as 3 officers slain in Baton Rouge ambush

The chaotic shootout between Baton Rouge officers and a lone gunman ranged around a series of commercial buildings before a SWAT officer killed the suspect with a 100-yard shot, police said Monday.
The gunman, Gavin Eugene Long, 29, of Kansas City, Mo., had an IWA Tavor SAR 5.56-caliber rifle and Springfield 9.9mm pistol with him during the shootout Sunday morning, according to Col. Michael Edmonson, superintendent of state police. Another Stag Arms M4 Variant 5.56-caliber semi-automatic rifle was at his rented Chevrolet Malibu car, Edmonson said.
The guns are being analyzed for the chain of ownership, he said.
By watching videos from the area around a car wash and convenience store where the shooting occurred, police said Long ignored civilians and shot only at police, Edmonson said.

Man Calls Out Black Lives Matter For Not Helping La. Flood Victims

Jerry L. Washington, a Baton Rouge native, posted a video to Facebook, asking why activists haven’t done anything to help the majority African-American city.
“Where are the Black Lives Matter and the Black Panthers?” Washington says in the video. “Because I ain’t seen one Black Panther boat or one Black Lives Matter boat. All I see is our own people from our own city saving us.”

The black cop who has a problem with ‘Black Lives Matter’

“Black Lives do not matter to most black people…Only the lives that are taken at the hands of cops or white people, matter.”
In his lengthy digital essay  former Baltimore police officer Jay Stalien challenged assertions that black people are unfairly penalised by law enforcement. It was his arguments about black-on-black violence that seemed to get the most attention. Drawing on his own experience, Stalien said he chose a career in law enforcement because:
“I watched and lived through the crime that took place in the hood. My own black people killing others over nothing. Crack heads and heroin addicts lined the lobby of my building as I shuffled around them to make my way to our 1 bedroom apartment with 6 of us living inside. I wanted to help my community and stop watching the blood of African Americans spilled on the street at the hands of a fellow black man.”

Far More Whites Killed by U.S. Police

the-counted

According to statistics maintained by the far-left extremist Guardian newspaper in Britain, more than half of all people killed by US police this year [2015] have been white, while only 25 percent have been black.
The Guardian’s statistics are contained in a tally of police killings maintained by that newspaper on a site titled “The Counted.” This was set up by the far-leftist newspaper with the intention of “proving” how “racist” the police in America are—an aim which has now completely backfired in face of the facts.
According to the Guardian’s tally, of the approximately 1001 people killed by police this year in America, 502 were white, 250 were black, 163 were Hispanic/Latino, 18 were Asian/Pacific Islander, 13 were American Indian, and 54 were other/unknown.
