After a year of them successfully causing unrest and grabbing headlines, have people had enough of the hypocrisy of the #blacklivesmatter movement? A movement that focuses myopically on incidents that fit their narrative — namely white-on-black, especially police, violence — while ignoring other very real and significant issues facing the black community in America, such as a rising tide of black-on-black violence?We’ve written repeatedly about this on this site, but now a fresh — and compelling — voice is adding hers to the chorus.
Ms. Peggy Hubbard, who lives just across the river from St. Louis, Miss., speaks forcefully and authentically in a video calling out #blacklivesmatter protesters who focus on police brutality to the exclusion of black-on-black brutality.
“Police brutality? How about black brutality?” she asks. It’s a cry many of us have rallied around, and yet the mainstream media headlines continue to focus myopically on white-on-black tragedies, leaving the huge swath of black-on-black crime in the public consciousness’ blind spot.
Via LiveLeak:Peggy Hubbard, who lives just across the river from St. Louis in Belleville, Illinois, slams BLM for tearing up communities in response to a thug being shot dead by police while ignoring the issue of black on black violence that led to the death of a 9-year-old girl in Ferguson.
Hubbard began by talking about the aftermath of the police shooting of 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey, who pointed a handgun at officers while he was fleeing a crack house in north St. Louis on Wednesday and was shot in self-defence as a result.
Local ‘youths’ and ‘Black Lives Matter’ activists responded by torching buildings and cars. The unrest continued for a second night,with protesters chanting “we’re ready for war” as they blocked traffic,bashed out car lights, and jumped one young white couple, with a man being severely beaten in a racist attack that the liberal media of course refuse to acknowledge.“They went to execute a warrant for an arrest for a very very bad guy, when they came to get him, instead of going peacefully, having his day in court, he decides to pull out another stolen gun, shoot at the police, police shot back, and he was killed,” explains Hubbard.Hubbard then references the case of a 9-year-old girl who was killed in Ferguson during a drive-by shooting, news of which emerged at around the same time.
“Last night, who do you think they protested for?” asks Hubbard.“The thug, the criminal, because they’re hollering police brutality, are you f**king kidding me? Police brutality? How about black brutality?”“You black people, my black people, you are the f**king most violent motherf**kers I have ever seen in my life!” she continues.
Hubbard went on to castigate protesters for “tearing up the neighborhood I grew up in” for a criminal while ignoring the innocent 9-year-old girl.“There is police brutality out there. I’ll give you that. But, night after night after night, on Channel 4, Channel 2, Channel 5, Channel 30, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, murder, murder, murder, black on black murder. But yet you assholes are out there tearing up your own sh*t. It’s not your sh*t.
It’s other people’s sh*t. For a criminal. For a thug,” Hubbard told the rioters.She goes on to explain how her own children are in prison and that she refuses to visit them because they need to learn their lesson and do their time.
“Black people – you’re a f**king joke, you’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals,” asserts Hubbard.
Although the response to news of 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden’s death was initially muted, some protesters did subsequently hold a candlelight march in her honor. However, the march ended at the point where Michael Brown died. Like Ball-Bey, Brown attacked a cop before he was shot dead.
Hubbard’s central point about black-on-black violence is routinely ignored by the Black Lives Matter movement. Figures show that 93% of blacks are killed by other blacks. The Black Lives Matter and related anti-white racist agitation operations are primarily funded by sinister global ‘philanthropist’ George Soros.
As Weasel Zippers noted:
But what should be said is that this is the opinion of many of the local folk who are fed up with the outside agitators and fed up with the destruction of their neighborhoods.
Watch for yourself. Warning: the language is explicit, but perhaps Ms. Hubbard speaks a language that will get through to more of the folks who need to hear it.
