It’s a shakedown: Black Lives Matter Demands an Air Tax for Slavery Reparations, by Daniel Grenfield.
Black Lives Matter was never really about protesting whatever drug dealer, robber or petty criminal was the latest to die in another violent confrontation with the police. Its founders, left-wing gay activists with a professional interest in community organizing, had little in common with the inner city criminals that they claimed to care about. Michael Brown or Freddie Gray were only their means to an end.
Black Lives Matter casually destroyed communities and then walked away to the next confrontation. The latest victim was only a means to radicalize and community organize before his t-shirts went into the trash bin and his hashtag was retired. Now the hate group has released its policy agenda.
We saw the protests. Now what do they want?
[I]t’s about the money. … In the end it’s always about a financial shakedown. And BLM has a big shakedown in mind.
Scroll down past the angry rhetoric and you wind up with “reparations” for slavery, not to mention an endless “war” on black people that encompasses everything from “mass incarceration” to “food apartheid.”
Reparations extend from “full and free access for all Black people (including undocumented and currently and formerly incarcerated people) to lifetime education” to “a guaranteed minimum livable income for all Black people.”
This would be a sizable welfare check paid out to all black people for being black.
Money, and lots of it, for the new black overlords. We work, they enjoy. All makes perfect sense of course. And some PC people, tripping over themselves in their haste not to be seen by their fellows as “racist,” will go for it.
It’s insane and ridiculous and racist and a thousand other things. Which is why the media will carefully select a few safe talking points from it and bury the rest of the madness …. The media won’t report on the hate group’s support for cop killers or its claim that lack of fresh produce is “food apartheid.” Instead the media acts as the spin doctors for Black Lives Matter.
