Legal Insurrection: In the aftermath of the death of George Floyd, we saw protests and violent riots break out across America. Marchers carried signs that read “silence is violence” and “Black Lives Matter.”
“Black Lives Matter,” as we all know, is more than just a slogan. It’s a radical left-wing organization with an anti-capitalism, anti-police, anti-America, and anti-Israel agenda. Over the last several weeks, the group and their message have risen to what Fox News’s Tucker Carlson described last month as an “unprecedented” level of power “for an American political movement.”
“Black Lives Matter now enjoys almost complete immunity from criticism,” Carlson correctly pointed out at the time. He would know, considering that he has become a target of boycott efforts on behalf of BLM simply for daring to criticize the group’s agenda and how they really operate.
A big reason why Black Lives Matter is treated as though they are above criticism and scrutiny is because the mainstream media treats them that way. In fact, supposedly objective media reporters have actually gone on record defending the group, as we saw earlier this week when ABC News reporter Jon Karl and PBS reporter Yamiche Alcindor rushed to their defense during a press briefing after President Trump called a planned NYC “Black Lives Matter” road painting a “symbol of hate” in a tweet.
“Why is the president calling Black Lives Matter a symbol of hate?” an agitated Karl asked White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany Wednesday.
“On Monday, the president went after stripping racist themes on buildings. On Tuesday he went after a rule to combat segregation. And then today, he said that he describes the words Black Lives Matter as a symbol of hate. Why is he digging in on race in this way?” an indignant Alcindor asked during the same press conference.
