With all the violence associated with BLM supporters how could anyone support the organization? And not just the violence, but the radical ideology behind it?

Every person of good will believes that “black lives matter.” But supporting the BLM because they have a nice sounding name without looking at what they are all about or the history of what their supporters have done is a bit like thinking Antifa is really antifascist or the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is actually “democratic.”

But that’s the problem. Many companies and organizations don’t look beyond the name and/or they want to go along with the crowd and not get cancelled.

But NFL great Herschel Walker had a message for those people, particularly the ones in sports, the NFL, NBA, WNBA, MLB: Do you really understand what you are supporting? Wake up, are we being played? If we love our Country, let’s speak up, stand up and protect it!

Walker spoke about how the BLM folks had been burned the Holy Bible and the American flag.

Here’s the video of what looks like it could be a cross, but the folks on scene didn’t identify it that way, so I can’t confirm that, could be flag poles or random pieces of wood crossed.

But certainly the other things were true as was the point he was making.

Walker asked those sports organizations what exactly was it they were supporting, were they supporting this behavior and these beliefs?

Folks supporting this, including and especially politicians or any companies giving financial support to this, must be called out.

Republicans get it.

But Democrats have not only been silent, they’ve even defended it, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi even attacking law enforcement as “stormtroopers” and excusing the ripping down of the statues as “people will do what they do.”
