Liberals see life quite differently. I read this post after the subsequent riots over the murder of George Floyd: “Here’s an example of how white privilege sounds: You keep saying that “It’s horrible that an innocent black man was killed, but destroying property has to stop.” Try saying “It’s horrible that property is being destroyed, but killing innocent black men has to stop.” “You’re prioritising the wrong part.”
It sounds high-minded but actually it’s not. It’s racist – white people (privileged) are portrayed as being more concerned with things than they are with black men (the victims) being killed. I’ll never go along with that, for me it’s “dragon speak.”
The murder of George Floyd wasn’t about race, or “white privilege,” it was about police brutality. I tried to point that out by referring to a previous incident in Minneapolis where in 2017 a white woman named Justine Damond was shot by a Somali cop. I blogged about that at the time. It took eight months for the police officer to be bought to justice, because of a “blue wall of silence” from the Minneapolis police. At least the four cops in the latest Minneapolis police murder were dealt with immediately.
However I was shut down, accused of commenting on every political issue with “cherry picked evidence.”
I wasn’t allowed to continue and I didn’t get to mention that the year before Justine Damond was shot dead, Philando Castile, an innocent 32 year old black man was shot dead in 2016 by Jeronimo Yanez, a Hispanic police officer.
I stand on my opinion of police brutality – in these cases the police officers and victims are of all colours and backgrounds.
I said that looting and rioting is not protest. Two days before, a retired St. Louis police captain has been killed by looters. His name was David Dorn.
Do you know which communities get harmed the most by this? Black communities.
Businesses ruined by looters
Here’s another victim of rioting and looting. He got away with his life but not his livelihood. This man was just about to open after the Covid-19 lock-down, and then the riots happened. He was at his business trying to clean up the mess left by the rioters, and while the cameras were there, looters came back for his safe.
He’d just started the business and invested his life savings into this sports bar. Fortunately, good people came together and crowd funded to get him back on his feet.
Nothing changes. Haters are going to hate, stirrers are going to stir, and looters are going to loot. Tucker Carlson reported: “Underneath it all, this violence doesn’t have much to do with the behaviour of the Minneapolis Police Department. For evidence, watch this tape from the Los Angeles Riots in 1992. It was 30 years ago. It could have been shot this afternoon.”
It’s heart-breaking. You’ll see an elderly black business owner crying, “It’s not right! “It’s not right! It’s not right what y’all doing! I came from the ghetto too! Same as all of you kids. Why are you destroying my business? Why are you destroying my truck? Why are you stealing my computer? I tried to make it! Can’t you understand that?”
Tucker Carlson: “It’s not a racial dispute. The old man is fighting to defend civilisation. The young men are fighting to tear it down. And those are the battle lines, they always are. Which side have our leaders taken?
The rioters in Minneapolis and other places act as if they’re allowed to loot and burn – and in fact they are allowed. No-one stops them. We’re told the crimes of the mob are “the punishment we deserve.” That’s their argument, and many seem to buy it. The game is rigged.”
It seems victim roles are automatically assigned by skin colour – white for privilege and black for victim. It’s patronising and a lazy, slack, stupid way of looking at things – and it plays into the hands of the globalists, the billionaires who want to control us.
People of all skin colours experience racism. It’s been that way ever since the Tower of Babel. For instance, did you know that Black people experience discrimination in China, and the Chinese have experienced discrimination elsewhere? It’s an unfortunate part of the human condition that Jesus came to save us from. It won’t be overcome when we’re all pointing fingers at each other. What would Jesus do? Wouldn’t He say we all matter?
Are the media stirring things up?
In Auckland, people went to a “Black lives matter march,” making a mockery of all the Covid-19 restrictions, especially distancing. Who stirred them up – the media? Why aren’t people protesting about China’s treatment of the citizens of Hong Kong? Or why aren’t they protesting the violence being done against whites in South Africa? Have they not heard about that? Black violence in South Africa is not reported in NZ – we only get the syndicated stuff from the American news networks.
Just be aware of the media’s role in all of this, and watch for articles about “racism.” United we stand and divided we fall. Who is doing the stirring? And why? Who are the shadowy figures trying to divide and conquer along racial lines?
Hotep Nation: “Anyway, black lives matter is a front organization for the globalists. They are here to destroy so that the powers that be can gain more power. For example, they’ll complain about police brutality and the powers that be will provide the solution of body cameras which equals more Orweillian “big brother is watching” surveillance. To chant that phrase gives them power. I do not say black lives matter because that is redundantly rhetorical.”
Black men speak out
This former officer Brandon Tatum is going viral for delivering this incredible response. He addresses both black and whites.
The Hodge Twins: “Liberals – you pushing that lie, it’s to make you feel better. You’re not helping them. You’re digging that hole of oppression deeper and deeper. They want to keep them on the Democrat plantation. Most blacks killed by their own race. Everyone knows black lives matter.”
The notion that police are involved in some mass shooting of black men is not at all true and the numbers back that up. Here are the FBI stats: Table 21
