In a shocking collection of interviews from the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis, BLM supporters agreed that the city should be burned and implied that white people need to be killed. They claim that thousands of unarmed black men are killed by police each year. The real number from last year was 18.
Hours after Congresswoman Maxine Waters called for BLM to get ‘more confrontational’, the Minnesota National Guard was targeted in a drive-by shooting. [It s clear that Waters and others like her are hoping to incite warfare in the streets to justify calling for martial law – which will never be lifted.]
A BLM activist ‘medic’ for the ‘autonomous zone’ said that she heard what sounded like “500 gunshots” Saturday night during her shift. Residents blame gang violence, BLM activists, many of whom are from out of state, and protests as the primary cause of the crime. The National Guard has been deployed to the city.
Buffalo’s schools have high rates of failure. In fifth grade, only 18% of students are proficient in math and only 20% proficient in English. One-third fail to graduate from high school. In response, school administrators have not tried to improve academic achievement, but have launched an ant-racist training program.
John Sullivan, the man who has a history of inciting violence and who was seen urging demonstrators to violence inside the Capitol, appears to have been denounced by Black Lives Matter, leading critics to wonder if the denunciation is a public-relations gesture or if he is working for a government agency.
Black Lives Matter is planning to start a bank early next year to push capital to black-owned firms. The Tides Foundation that pushes leftist causes enables donors to mask their identities from public scrutiny. This money likely will be funneled to organizations that work to suppress opposition to leftist agendas.
