I guess there is just nobody racist enough for the #BlackLivesMatter folks to endorse yet, so perhaps that’s the reason they are holding back their presidential endorsement?
The only person actually scared about this might be Hillary Clinton. But as we all know, Clinton has much bigger issues than pandering to black people keeping her attention these days.
As for Republicans’ reaction: in word, heartbroken. After all, Republicans freed blacks from the slave-making Democrats, and fought for almost all the civil rights that the #BLM enjoys. One could argue that Republicans are the fathers of the #BLM.
Regardless of your views on that notion, just the idea that #BLM thinks this “checkers” move is worthy of any serious response is laughable. Black Liberals are dyed-in-the-wool self-abusers who will vote for a Democrat, if the person running were Lucifer himself.
Yet, in an Associated Press interview, Alicia Garza, one of the founders of the group discussed the organization’s refusal to settle on a preferred candidate in the 2016 race to succeed Obama and pledged to press ahead with protests and interruptions during the campaign.
“Sometimes you have to put a wrench in the gears to get people to listen,” said Garza, who spoke at the 7th Annual Black Women’s Roundtable Policy Forum last week.
Wrench? A wrench would be actually giving the other side a chance for one’s vote, so perhaps an organization can actually affect change. The Democrats know with certainty that their decades of indoctrination has paid off, thereby blacks in eerily overwhelming majority will continue to vote for black oppressors. Therefore, if #BLM were serious about their “movement,” they would immediately stop voting for Democrats, the very people who the mothers of the #BLM.
Surely somebody in #BLM realizes that their movement is built around Democrats politicians?
As the NY Daily News writes,
The Black Lives Matter movement traces its roots to the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin in Florida in 2012, and gained national ground after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, last summer. Since then, deaths of other unarmed black males at the hands of law enforcement officers have inspired protests under the “Black Lives Matter” moniker.
I guess when your movement is built on a lie, it is difficult to understand truth.
Nobody cares about this movement, a movement that will end up imploding on itself, thus diminishing any real issues that need change in the black community. #BLM is an excuse for blacks to “act out” in society, then point the finger at anything but “black behavior.” Only Leftist politicians would encourage such nonsense such as #BLM, and even they know enough to just pander.
Why should Democrats do more than pander to these morons, as Democrats have proven for decades they don’t need to take blacks seriously. Just throw them a few scraps from time to time, and they are happy to dance.
Let me just help the #BLM in their quest to find justice: #BLM endorse [insert Democrat candidate here].
