Did you know being tough on crime puts you in the same league as Adolf Hitler?It’s a claim so absurd only someone from Black Lives Matter could utter it. From the movement that argues police don’t make us safer (the evidence, obviously, says otherwise) comes their latest questionable claim about crime. It’s almost as if they want there to be as much crime in their communities as possible so they have something to protest about.
The Daily Caller reports: Trump’s Thursday night speech dwelt heavily on law and order, as he pledged to champion the American police, to halt a surge in murders in American cities, and to enforce America’s immigration laws.
“Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed” by the Obama administration’s “rollback of criminal enforcement,” Trump said. “On January 21st of 2017, the day after I take the oath of office, Americans will finally wake up in a country where the laws of the United States are enforced.”
That rhetoric, according to Black Lives Matter, puts Trump in the company of Hitler, Benito Mussolini and other fascist dictators.“The terrifying vision that Donald J. Trump is putting forward casts him alongside some of the worst fascists in history,” Alicia Garza said in a statement sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Garza, an Oakland-based activist, helped co-found Black Lives Matter in 2013 after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
By pledging to protect police, Garza said Trump was actually promoting police terrorism against black people.
“While our movement envisions a bright future where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, Trump is proposing a new, dark age where police have carte blanche authority to terrorize our communities,” she said. “Whether it was Richard Nixon unleashing a war on drugs or George Wallace’s more overt war on Black people, we’ve heard it all before and won’t be fooled again.”Patrisse Cullors, another Black Lives Matter co-founder, also described Trump overtly as a terrorist.
Since blacks are disproportionately the victims of violence in America, does BLM not realize that reducing crime would disproportionately impact blacks positively? Do their lives not matter all of a sudden because Trump is the one with a solution?When it comes to terrorism, apparently is takes one to know one, as you don’t have to dig deep to find examples of BLM members calling for violence against police. In just the past three weeks we lost eight officers to nut-jobs inspired by the bogus perceptions of police racism that BLM actively preaches as fact. And how long will it be before these idiots blocking off highways leads to a death? It’s already almost happened once.
It’s no wonder over 140,000 Americans signed a petition to have the government formally recognize BLM as a terror group. If BLM wants to see what terrorism looks like, they should look in the mirror.
