We’ve been seeing BLM involved in rioting for months now.
But according to Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), the Democrats’ candidate for Vice President, the radical group is brilliant and “essential” for “change.”
From Fox News:
“Nothing that we have achieved that has been about progress, in particular around civil rights, has come without a fight, and so I always am going to interpret these protests as an essential component of evolution in our country — as an essential component or mark of a real democracy,” the vice presidential nominee said during the NAACP’s national convention.
She added that protests were “necessary” as “the people’s voices must be heard, and it is often the people who must speak to get their government to do what it is supposed to do, but may not do naturally unless the people speak loudly — and obviously peacefully.”
Harris also praised the “brilliance” and “impact” of “Black Lives Matter,” which has received media praise but also come under fire for promoting left-wing stances like opposing the nuclear family. “I actually believe that ‘Black Lives Matter’ has been the most significant agent for change within the criminal justice system,” she said.
This is completely delusional. This perception of BLM as just some ‘civil rights group’ without any acknowledgment of the radical nature of the group, what they are really all about, or the violence shows a complete disconnection from reality. Or more harmfully, it shows that she wants to move in the completely radical direction they propound. Agent for change? Yes, if you mean negative change, like defunding the police which is harmful to black people and anyone else.
According to one assessment, BLM has been connected to 91% of the riots that have plagued the country for the past few months.
The U.S. experienced 637 riots between May 26 and Sept. 12, and 91% of those riots were linked to the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the US Crisis Monitor, a joint project of the Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project and the Bridging Divides Initiative at Princeton University.
Forty-nine states, not counting Washington, D.C., experienced riots during that time period, the study found. California led the nation with 86 riots during that time, closely followed by Oregon with 79 riots during that time period, the data show.
In addition to all the other violence, there have been dozens of killings and hundreds of injuries from these riots including to police, media, and even children. A BLM rioter just shot two cops in Louisville this week during the Breonna Taylor riots.
Is that “brilliance?”
If someone is either this ignorant of what has been going on or worse, in favor of this movement to the radical left, then that person, Kamala Harris, has to be roundly rejected at the ballot box.
