Why Are the Courts Afraid of the “Black Lives Matter” Movement?

Personally I am fed up with immoral individuals using the 1st Amendment as a shield for malicious behavior.  The “Black Lives Matter” movement is nothing but a vile, malevolent group of individuals filled with hate.  There does exists avenues to subdue their evil acts such as the “Discrimination Law,” and the Equality Act of 2010. The latter discloses, “Stirring up hatred against people because of their race, or because of religious beliefs or sexual orientation, in the form of making or publishing certain kinds of threatening statements is a boundary to freedom of expression and a crime”.  I would believe police officers would fit in there somewhere.

In addition, The Supreme Court has cited three “reasons why threats of violence are outside the First Amendment: protecting individuals from the fear of violence, from the disruption that fear engenders, and from the possibility that the threatened violence will occur.”  In fact, in 1991 St. Paul, Minnesota used one of these reasons to charge an individual for burning a cross.  In R. A. V. v. St. Paul 505 U.S. 377 (1992) rightfully concluded the 1st Amendment was invalid.

Coincidently, it is in Minnesota where the movement chanted “Pigs in a blanket. Fry ’em like bacon!”  Beyond a shadow of doubt this is a threat of violence not to be protected by the 1st Amendment and the threatened violence actually has occurred, on more than one occasion.  What has been done?  I called the Minnesota Attorney General and they told me “The Attorney General does not have the authority to press criminal charges.”  They referred me to the county attorney.

I called the Ramsey County Attorney’s office and the lady immediately advised me to call the police and they needed to file charges.  I referred them to the above cases and she repeated my need to phone the police.  I asked her if the attorney’s office believed this was a case not protected by the 1st Amendment.  She repeated my need to phone the police.  I asked if there was an attorney I could speak to in regards to this and she said no.

The courts have righteously gone after the KKK when they spewed hate speech. They found a “True Threat” against the American Coalition of Life Activists. There are numerous cases throughout the United States where individuals, organizations and movements have not been allowed to cower behind the 1st Amendment.

So I ask, “Why are the courts so afraid of the “Black Lives Matter” movement?  I believe it stems from guilt.  Many of us have been manipulated into believing we have wronged black people. While our ancestors were undoubtedly responsible for some atrocities, individuals of today have no liability.  In fact, it was the white, Christian Republicans who fought for and attained freedom for all black individuals.  It is time for all of us to move on and take personal responsibility for our actions.

In my book “Public Schools – The Worst Case of Child Abuse in American History” I explained it with this statement.

“It has fallen upon us to consistently defend ourselves from accusations of being racists despite a vast majority of us being unprejudiced.  None of us have ever taken or known personally any individual that has taken any black man or woman as slaves.  No person of those accusing us of racism has ever been a slave or has ever personally known any individual who was a slave. We fight over an offense we did not give, against those who were not alive to be offended.”

The definition of racism is treating individuals differently because of the color of their skin.  In America today racism is the most equal issue we partake of. There are as many blacks who hate white people simply for the color of their skin as there are whites who hate blacks for the color of their skin.  And I say to you they are both equally wicked.

Giving special privileges because of skin tone is not merely oppressive, it is racism.  Now is the time for Americans to move on.  Stop educating hatred in our schools, stop encouraging entitlement, stop allowing the promotion of violence against anyone and start the movement of caring more for others than you do for yourself.
