Late last month, a NRA commercial featuring The Blaze host Dana Loesch was criticized for “inciting violence” among people who don’t know what the term “inciting violence” means. Black Lives Matter leader DeRay McKesson (who is kinda like the black Shaun King) tweeted out a link to Loesch’s ad, captioning it “this NRA ad is an open call to violence to protect white supremacy. If I made a video like this, I’d be in jail.”In a world where words are violence, and violence is “resistance,” the video below apparently falls into the former category:

Never to miss an opportunity to milk faux-outrage for everything they can, Black Lives Matter decided to issue a response video to Loesch’s three-month old ad — the one they discovered well after the fact and decided to pretend to be outraged about.“We demand that the NRA immediately remove their dangerous propaganda videos narrated by conservative radio hosts Dana Loesch and Grant Stinchfield,” a BLM leader in the video states.
In a video that begins in a similar style to the NRA ad, the BLM woman speaks as footage of police officers and protests are shown on screen, stating “they use their guns to assassinate black people, they use their schools to funnel black students through a school-to-prison pipeline. They use their state institutions, bought politicians, business conglomerates, and white supremacist domestic terrorists to incite violence over and over again.”
Who are “they?” She must be speaking about other black people, given that 93 percent of black homicide victims were killed by black perpetrators.“School-to-prison pipeline?” Avoiding prison after high school is literally as easy as not committing crimes.
“White supremacist domestic terrorists?” They’ve reached such epidemic proportions that there could be as many as twelve of them out there!After the hyperbole, the tone of the video changes:
“When the NRA issues a public call to their constituents, inciting violence against people who are constitutionally fighting for their lives — we don’t take that lightly. We know that we are not safe, but we are not scared either. We will continue to produce media, teach students, march, and protest to not only protect the First Amendment as fiercely as the NRA protects the second, but to protect our lives from gun-toting racists,” the representative says.
The video ends with a montage of blacks killed by police during encounters with law enforcement, which is somehow a racial issue despite the fact that more whites are killed by police every year than blacks (relative to proportional share of crimes committed), black and Hispanic officers are more likely to shoot black suspects, and that more cops are killed by blacks each year (per capita) than the reverse.
The pointless conspiratorial video got the response you’d expect:
The BLM representative says that she doesn’t feel safe in America. It’s too bad she’s unaware that police are the antidote to that problem.
