Black Lives Matter strikes yet again!
Many people would consider the Black Lives Matter movement to be undoubtedly liberal. However, according to Black Lives Matter, this is not the case. As reported by Breitbart News and The Daily Wire, College of William & Mary’s Black Lives Matter group took it upon themselves to shut down a Free Speech function organized by the ACLU.
They took it upon themselves to storm the event, hurling accusatory statements such as “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too,” “the oppressed are not impressed,” and “shame, shame, shame, shame.” Black Lives Matter continued with “liberalism is white supremacy” before claiming the ACLU had “blood on their hands.”
Black Lives Matter has utterly lost all credibility. Granted, measures like gun control and illegal immigration were and are especially harmful to people of color. However, Black Lives Matter has been paraded, championed, and endorsed by liberals, mainly white liberals.
Perhaps Black Lives Matter turning on liberals is the only way for the latter to realize that one cannot negotiate with terrorists, which is essentially what members of Black Lives Matter are. These are the same people who rioted in the streets and demolished their own communities simply because they didn’t want conservative speakers on their college campuses. These are also people who called for the death of police officers (pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon) and even executed police officers.
Liberals created a rabid pack of monsters, and now they have to deal with it. According to Breitbart News, the ACLU’s apparent defense of August’s Charlottesville protests are what set off Black Lives Matter. Rather than having security escort the professional agitators away from the premises, the William & Mary leaders pandered to them, permitting the Black Lives Matter ringleader to speak and have their views heard. Unsurprisingly, it was not enough. The chanting and screaming continued until the entire function was shut down.
Black Lives Matter’s sabotage of the Free Speech event should convey a message to liberals and all the leaders who have enabled this group; these people don’t care about equality or even being heard. Even when given a chance to speak and express their views, despite causing a disturbance, Black Lives Matter continued to scream and riot. The members of Black Lives Matter are angry at the world for whatever reason. Logic and reason are beyond them, which is why they are never satisfied.
It’s interesting that Black Lives Matter would brand liberalism as racism. They’ve made the same comments about conservatives, Trump supporters, and President Trump himself. What has Black Lives Matter not deemed as racism and white supremacy? Sadly, these words have been significantly devalued as a result of groups like Black Lives Matter, using them to describe anything they don’t like.
Following the commotion created by Black Lives Matter, William & Mary released the following public statement:
“William & Mary has a powerful commitment to the free play of ideas. We have a campus where respectful dialogue, especially in disagreement, is encouraged so that we can listen and learn from views that differ from our own, so that we can freely express our own views, and so that debate can occur. Unfortunately, that type of exchange was unable to take place Wednesday night when an event to discuss a very important matter – the meaning of the First Amendment — could not be held as planned.
Silencing certain voices in order to advance the cause of others is not acceptable in our community. This stifles debate and prevents those who've come to hear a speaker, our students in particular, from asking questions, often hard questions, and from engaging in debate where the strength of ideas, not the power of shouting, is the currency. William & Mary must be a campus that welcomes difficult conversations, honest debate and civil dialogue.”
Sadly, the College of William & Mary is still not getting it. Not everyone can be reasoned with. If Black Lives Matter wants their voice to be respected and listened to, they have to respect and listen to others. As long as liberals continue to bend over backward and accommodate Black Lives Matter despite the insanity of their conduct, the behavior will only get worse.
Liberals have some tough decisions to make. For what’s likely the very first time, they’ve been on the receiving end of Black Lives Matter’s flagrant conduct. Conservatives and police officers have been subjected to it for quite some time.
People will not continue to tolerate having their events and functions hijacked. When it’s all said and done, Black Lives Matter will learn one way or the other that anarchic violence and causing a disturbance will not engender whatever reform they’re seeking.
