BLM Advocates Looting, by John Hinderaker.
The American press has a long history of sanitizing radical leftist movements. These days the main beneficiary of the press’s airbrush is Black Lives Matter, a racist, Marxist organization that sponsors, in reporters’ words, “mostly peaceful” riots. As with other far-left groups, BLM does not hide its true colors. It just relies on the press to misreport them.
Last night’s looting in Chicago was horrific. No respectable organization could defend such rampant criminality.
Chicago Sun-Times: BLM demands the right to loot other people’s stuff:
When protesters attack high-end retail stores that are owned by the wealthy and service the wealthy, that is not ‘our’ city and has never been meant for us,” the group said in a statement.
The group’s pro-looting policy is explicit at their protests:
Imagine an economic system where one racial group is given permission to loot. Where anyone who complains is “racist”. Living off the taxpayer is no longer enough. And serious talk of payments to one racial group from everyone else is floating around (“reparations”).
Imagine the control over the media, bureaucracy and academia required to make any of this even possible.
Imagine all the votes this will receive from the other racial groups, when they cotton on to what is happening.
