2012 – The Black Lives Matters organization got its start because of the Trayvon Martin incident in Florida. The cops had nothing to do with the death, but they were quickly labeled the bad guys by BLM and even our president. The democrat run news media was caught using doctored surveillance footage to incite viewers. But, despite this false start, BLM gained momentum. What they alleged may not have been honest, but it was popular. After all it served a greater purpose to advance black unity and militancy.
2020 Orlando Seminole news – “The start of the Black Lives Matter movement can be traced to thousands of protesters who crammed into a park in an Orlando suburb eight years ago to demand justice after the death of Trayvon Martin.”
The Black Lives Matter organized was founded on the false assumption that Martin was the victim, but he wasn’t. He was the aggressor. And the suspect (Geo. Zimmerman) turned out to be the victim. The victim was determined to be justified in defending himself. But, doubts raised by BLM made it appear otherwise and the controversy took on a life of its own that still lingers.
2014 – The Michael Brown incident in Ferguson. Rioting followed one day after an officer fatally shot Michael Brown. Obama’s Justice Department took charge of the investigation and to everyone’s surprise, the officer was vindicated. It was a good shoot. Brown was proven to be the attacker. A false story arose that brown was trying to surrender, had his hands up and said to the officers, Don’t shoot.” Remember, “You know, if I had a son, he’d look like Trayvon,” President Obama said. “All of us have to do some soul-searching to figure out how does something like this happen,” he continued. “And that means that we examine the laws and the context for what happened as well as the specifics of the incident.”
Both Obama and BLM promoted this false narrative that allowed the now famous line to spread, “hands ups – don’t shoot.” But, it never happened. It was lie told by Brown’s friend and refuted by eye witnesses. Yet the lie lives on because this is what people apparently want to believe.
BLM got the story wrong in Florida and supported the wrong side. BLM got it all wrong again in Ferguson Missouri and again they were joined by the president who embraced the wrong side and made it clear he was against the police officer.
This further stoked the lies that the police were the problem – not the black defendants.
2015 – Baltimore, Md. One day after Freddie Gray died in police custody the rioting began. The anger against police resulted in six officers being suspended and put on trial. The evidence supported the officers and the were completely cleared of any wrong doing. BLM tried to make Gray as the iconic victim of police brutality. This further fueled the hatred within the black community and promoted the lie that systemic racism within white law enforcement was a growing threat. The arresting officers were both black and white.
2016 – Milwaukie, Wi. BLM accused police again of racist misconduct in the case of Sylvie Smith. Police stopped a car for suspicious activities in a residential neighborhood. Both men fled on foot. Sylvie was armed with a semi-automatic handgun. He was later shot in the right arm and chest, by one of the officers and died. The handgun, along with 500 additional rounds of ammunition, had been reported stolen during a March burglary. The police were vilified by the black community. The black suspects were characterized as the victims of trigger happy cops and the case against bad cops builds!
2020- Then along came a little gift from China. Some might call it a wonderful, perfect, blessed gift of COVIDS-19. Another crisis has arrived and right before the election. The dems suddenly had all sorts of new angles from which to launch attacks on Trump. The nation went into lockdown as did many other countries. Isolation led to frustration and after months of flattening the curve I think many of us were ready to riot!
May – 2020 The Covid’s-19 virus had barely begun to wane when another gift arrived in the form of a new allegation of police brutality now in Minneapolis, MN.
George Floyd, drug addict, convicted of armed robber was reported tryin to pass a counterfeit $20. He either died of a heart attack due to medical complications or he was asphyxiated by a police officer using an unapproved control hold. BLM did even have time to get to the scene before blacks were rioting, burning and looting.
You might think that George Floyd was far the kind of guy you might want to take point on a civil rights claim, however, if you are BLM, Al Sharpton and crowd, you just go with what you got. And what you got is Floyd died in police custody. This time video evidence puts the burden of proof on the cops, because they were tried and convicted in the court of public opinion before the autopsy report was done. It’s Baltimore all over again.
What a break for the lamestream media, for the discredited Black Lives Matters organization and for the democrats seeking to oust Trump. Now all these co-conspirators had ammunition to indict the nation’s law enforcement and the real target… Donald J. Trump.
The awful circumstances surrounding Floyd’s death were enough to start the looting and burning, but they also started something else. We’re looking at anarchy. One city after another fell victim to rioting and looting in the name of George Floyd. The democrat governors and mayors, Mostly in cities run by democrats that ironically had women mayors and women as their chief of police, had no response to the lawlessness. All they could do is wring their hands and tell the cops to back off. Seattle is out of control, a police station was evacuated and turned over to the ANTIFA mob. A very violent insurrection by the ANTIFA mob captured a police department and six blocks of central Seattle.
So, if you connect all the dots laid out for you now by groups like BLM, the democrat media, Obama, the race-baiters, ANTIFA, it’s easy to see how they all overlap and lead right back to blaming Donald J. Trump.
What a terrible price America and our law enforcement officers have had to pay just so the radicals could dump Trump and clear the way for worse to come.
