Nobody is working harder to ensure that black Americans die violently than the #Blacklivesmatter protesters.
Not the KKK. Not the Aryan Nation. Not the American Nazi Party.
In fact, if those groups were smart (and being a part of one of those groups is de facto proof that they’re not), then they’d be doing everything they can to fund the #blacklivesmatter crowd.
Well, first of all, despite the name, the group doesn’t care about most #blacklives.
On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted PER DAY in the United States. Many of those innocents are slaughtered via Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by a woman who wanted to use abortion to help control the population of black Americans because she believed they were inferior.
The #blacklivesmatter protesters don’t care about those black lives.
They also don’t care about the staggering number of black Americans murdered by other black Americans.
Roughly 8,000 to 9,000 black Americans are murdered per year and per the FBI, from 1980-2008, 93% of black men who were murdered, were murdered by other black men.
Those numbers dwarf the total number of Americans killed by police in more than a decade according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Per the CDC from 1999 to 2011, “2,151 whites died by being shot by police compared to 1,130 blacks.”
So, if you’re really interested in saving black lives, the most important thing you could do would be to make abortion illegal. Failing that, if you could at least make it much less prevalent, you could save more black lives in a month than the police will kill in 10 years.
Beyond that, addressing out of wedlock births would dramatically reduce the number of murders in black communities. In fact, if the out-of-wedlock birth rate from black Americans dropped from 72% to the same 30% rate that white Americans have, the difference in murder rates between whites and blacks would largely disappear.
Assuming nothing is done about the out-of-wedlock birth rate, the only other thing that seems likely to significantly reduce the number of black men who are murdering each other would be a dramatically increased police presence in black neighborhoods.
The #blacklivesmatter protesters don’t care about abortion, they don’t care about the out-of-wedlock birth rate and they don’t care about reducing the number of black men killing each other.
In fact, if the #blacklivesmatter nutbags get their way, the number of black men dying WILL INCREASE.
That’s because when you boil it all down, the #blacklivesmatter creeps have a simple agenda: They hate cops.
Just look at some of the demands they have on their website.
We will seek justice for Brown’s family by petitioning for the immediate arrest of officer Darren Wilson and the dismissal of county prosecutor Robert McCullough. Groups that are part of the local Hands Up Don’t Shoot Coalition have already called for Wilson’s swift arrest, and some BLM riders also canvassed McCullough’s neighborhood as a way of raising the public’s awareness of the case.
It’s sad when any human being loses his life, but Mike Brown is not a sympathetic character. He robbed a convenience store, assaulted a police officer and tried to take his gun; then Brown was shot while he was charging that same cop.
If that’s not a justified shooting, then as a practical matter, you stack the deck against cops to such an extent that you won’t be able to get anyone to do the job.
This demand also sticks out…
We will call on the office of US attorney general Eric Holder to release the names of all officers involved in killing black people within the last five years, both while on patrol and in custody, so they can be brought to justice – if they haven’t already.
We have a justice system that already prosecutes police officers; so who exactly is going to bring them to justice? The #blacklivesmatter imbeciles? Also, officers already face the court system if they break our laws. So, what’s the crime supposed to be? If it’s “killing black people,” then again, you can’t field a police force if you make it illegal to kill black Americans who are trying to kill and injure the police.
Then there’s this demand…
And we will advocate for a decrease in law-enforcement spending at the local, state and federal levels and a reinvestment of that budgeted money into the black communities most devastated by poverty in order to create jobs, housing and schools. This money should be redirected to those federal departments charged with providing employment, housing and educational services.
What good is a job in, let’s say, a convenience store if there aren’t any police officers around to protect you from thugs like Mike Brown? What good is more housing when you’re afraid to walk outside because there aren’t any cops to protect you from the gangbangers and drug dealers on the corner? How much does more money for schools matter when you fear for your child’s life every day because his school is like the Wild, Wild West?
Look at what’s happened in Baltimore since the #blacklivesmatter morons showed up with their anti-cop lunacy.
Since the rioting and looting after the death April 19 of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who suffered severe spinal injuries while in police custody, crime rates have spiked. In May there were 42 homicides in Baltimore, the most in a month since 1990.
…Arrests, meanwhile, have plummeted in recent weeks, from 2,677 in April to 1,531 in May.
Great job, idiots!
How about New York?
At a police community meeting in the South Bronx on June 4, residents begged the officers to arrest the crowds of teens who hang out on local street corners and fight with each other. Shootings in that precinct are up 167% through May 31 – but that isn’t serious enough to qualify for the NYPD’s high-priority list because the trouble is even worse elsewhere in the city.
Fantastic job, morons!
If the #blacklivesmatter dimwits wanted to call for more body cameras, more coordination between the police and the community and harsher penalties for cops who break the law, most people would probably be just fine with that.
However, if these ignoramuses want to scream at random people, try to take over political rallies, block traffic and live in a world where cops aren’t allowed to defend themselves from people trying to kill them, then let them create their own society without police and go live in it. Nobody will miss them. The rest of us appreciate the difficulty of the job the police are doing, like having them around and will support them to the hilt as long as they do their job and obey the law.
Below is a list from Open Secrets of the campaign contributions of various groups. Try to find the infamous “Koch Brothers”:
If you noticed there are no less than 22 groups that donated more to the Democratic Party than the Koch Brothers donated to the Republican Party – congratulations! You have basic math, reading and comprehension skills.
For extra credit, take note that DNC “Uber Donors” gave $485,652,385 more to the Democrat Party for their progressive causes than all RNC “Uber donors” combined.
After the Supreme Court struck down an elections law on campaign funding caps, progressives took to the media to vent their supposed frustrations.
“Now we know corporations are people and money is people too,” CNN anchor Caroline Costello lamented (apparently not noticing that “CNN is people” and it has freedom of the press rights). One wonders if Democrats also object as vehemently to the notion that “progressive groups are people” or “colleges are people” or “unions are people.”
According to Open Secrets, in 2012, “Obama’s campaign spent about $737.9 million, compared to the combined Republican total of $624.8 million.” The grand total for all elections tilted Republicans’ way, but by the margins of 9% and 10% in the House and Senate, respectively. While PACs leaned GOP, the Democrats dominated the 527s. The point is that the media’s outrage at spending in politics is entirely selective.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) on Wednesday criticized a Koch Industries subsidiary for allegedly circumventing sanctions on Iran even though Reid has accepted tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from companies that have done exactly that.
Reid also claimed that the Kochs support the recently introduced House Republican budget proposal. Neither the company nor its owners has taken a position on the legislation.
Reid’s claims were part of an ongoing offensive against libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch. Reid has accused them of being “un-American” for donating to groups that oppose the Democratic Party’s agenda.
A page on Reid’s Senate website is devoted entirely to attacking the Kochs. It initially cited former White House economist Austan Goolsbee, who falsely claimed in 2010 that Koch Industries does not pay any corporate taxes.
That claim remains on the website, with its text crossed out. Below is an “update” that claims the Kochs “have supported the Ryan budget, which provides tax cuts for the wealthy and protects taxpayer subsidies for big businesses and oil companies.”
The page links to a website from a left-wing nonprofit on the budget introduced by Rep. Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) this week, on which the Kochs have not taken a position.
“The Kochs made improper payments to win contracts in Africa, India and the Middle East,” Reid claims. “And they sold millions of dollars of equipment to Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism.”
After evidence of the said improper payments came to light, Koch Industries commissioned an internal investigation and fired the responsible employees, according to Bloomberg.
Reid has accepted campaign contributions from companies that engage in even more widespread corruption abroad.
According to the Washington Examiner, Reid has accepted more than half a million dollars in contributions since 2009 from employees and political action committees of companies under investigation for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Reid has also taken tens of thousands of dollars from companies that, like Koch, have done business in Iran through foreign subsidiaries, including General Electric ($25,500 in PAC contributions), Hewlett-Packard ($14,500 in PAC contributions), and Sony ($14,500 in PAC contributions).
Reid has also taken $26,000 from Boeing’s PAC. The company is currently trying to reestablish its presence in Iran even though the country remains on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism.

Reason, facts, truth – these bourgeois concepts mean nothing to the adherents of progressivism. You are never going to change the mind of someone who believes in nothing except the imperative of his own absolute power. You simply have to defeat him.
Progressivism is not a coherent ideology so much as a purpose – to control every aspect of our lives. It is about consolidating progressive power. Nothing else matters. That includes the truth.

Matt at Conservative Hideout makes the case and explains why the Left so loathes gun rights
That state of passive captivity is exactly where the state wants all of us. And, the political left attempt to create this by use of the Alinsky Method. People that dissent, believe in freedom, and such are singled out and destroyed. They are harassed in public, and in their own homes. Their children and tracked and harassed. They receive death threats, false lawsuits are filed. Basically, the target is relentlessly isolated and attacked until they submit. They want the target to submit and be passive, and they want to people witnessing it to not get any bright ideas about having independent thoughts of their own. Also, when children are singled out for punishment in school for being Christian, or c0llege students are threatened with failing grades for not embracing the “tolerance” of the regressives. we see the isolation and attack mode that seeks to create passive sheeple, and punish those that stand up.
How this applies to gun control is simple. A firearm provides a sense of security and confidence. As the old saying goes, “God made man, but Samuel Colt made them equal.” Meaning, that it became very difficult to intimidate and subjugate a man that is armed. It is a catalyst for independence, as when a human can defend themselves, they will stand up to the state, community organizers, or union goons. It’s the “emboldening agent” that could be applied to the picture. It’s the great equalizer of our Republic. It is the counterbalance to tyranny; the gun owner is confident, and the one(s) that would attack him are wary. It doesn’t matter that the gun owner cannot impose his will on others, as others cannot impose their will on him. There is a certain reciprocity there, as all sides are potentially “equal” in terms of their power to protect themselves.
If you will notice, we see stories about union attacks, andcommunity organizers intimidating people far more in urban areas. Why is this? I think most of you will understand why. In the cities, there are more gun control laws, so these thugs have less of a chance of being confronted by an armed citizen. In the suburbs, and especially in rural areas, the thug’s shenanigans would be confronted with the sound on dozens of “metallic clicks.” It’s hard to intimidate someone that can fight back, even if he or she is outnumbered (or, unless the government limits the amount of bullets that go in magazines).
Go read the whole thing, It is quite insightful, and dead on accurate. as I often say, the Collectivist Left despises anything that supports Individualism, and individual liberty, nothing does more to those ends than the right to own firearms.
It seems that a Yale professor did a study about political outlooks and science comprehension, you know, the kind of study snotty, self-assured Liberals love to quote. Well, it turns out that Tea Party people, who are CONSERVATIVES for the most part, have a better knowledge of science. H’T Fritz
Because the “asymmetry thesis” just won’t leave me alone, I decided it would be sort of interesting to see what the relationship was between a “science comprehension” scale I’ve been developing and political outlooks…
It turns out that there is about as strong a correlation between scores on the science comprehension scale and identifying with the Tea Party as there is between scores on the science comprehension scale and Conservrepub.
Except that it has the opposite sign: that is, identifying with the Tea Party correlates positively (r = 0.05, p = 0.05) with scores on the science comprehension measure:
The professor shows signs of an open mind, which is good, of course he is not climbing out of his Liberal closet just yet
I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension.
But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party. All my impressions come from watching cable tv — & I don’t watch Fox News very often — and reading the “paper” (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico).
I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.
But not really embarrassed enough to reconsider his other biases…
Of course, I still subscribe to my various political and moral assessments–all very negative– of what I understand the “Tea Party movement” to stand for. I just no longer assume that the people who happen to hold those values are less likely than people who share my political outlooks to have acquired the sorts of knowledge and dispositions that a decent science comprehension scale measures.
Baby steps professor, baby steps
What Liberals think– If we are really nice to Islamists, and show them we want peace, they will like us
Reality– They will still want to cut your head off or blow you up
What Liberals think– Rights come from big government
Reality-Rights come from God, they are Natural Rights
What Liberals think– Equality is the ultimate Utopia
Reality– Liberals prefer “equality” to liberty, even if that equality is an equality of suffering under Totalitarianism
What Liberals think– The States enforcement of the “common good” is more important than individual rights
Reality– Once the “common good” supersedes individual liberty, no liberty is safe, and ultimately, the “common good” will be decided by some for of dictatorship
What Liberals Think– Freedom of speech is sacrosanct, as long as that speech does not contradict Liberalism, then it is hate speech
Reality– Freedom of speech IS sacrosanct, no matter who it offends
What Liberals Think– Armed citizens rarely if ever use guns in self-defense, so strict gun control will reduce violent crime
Reality– Guns are used hundreds of thousands of times annually by Americans to defend themselves, so disarming the people will cause a dramatic increase in violent crime
