BLM activists silent as 2 babies shot, one fatally, in 2 days

Black Lives MatterBy John Ruberry

You very likely have heard about the Black Lives Mat­ter move­ment, the hard-​left scream­ers who reg­u­larly dis­rupt polit­i­cal gath­er­ings and even attack peo­ple who pro­claim “All Lives Mat­ter.” One BLM leader called All Lives Mat­ter a “new racial slur.”

A wrong turn into a dead end has been made from the sen­ti­ment of Mar­tin Luther King, who pro­claimed in 1963, “I have a dream that my four lit­tle chil­dren will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the con­tent of their character.”

But Black Lives Mat­ter is a polit­i­cal movement.

Last Mon­day a black Chicago teen, Pierre Loury, who was car­ry­ing a gun, was shot to death by police on the West Side as he climbed a fence dur­ing a foot chase. BLM quickly mobi­lized a rally attended by 200 or 300 so pro­test­ers the fol­low­ing night

On Fri­day after­noon a few miles from the site of the Loury shoot­ing, a one-​year-​old named Khloe was shot in the neck while she was sit­ting the back seat of the car by assailants in a mov­ing vehi­cle. There was a small peace rally at the site of the shoot­ing yes­ter­day – but no Black Lives Mat­ters activists were visible.

Four years ago Khloe’s sis­ter was wounded by gun­fire three blocks from Friday’s shoot­ing at a lemon­ade stand she set up.

Also on Sat­ur­day a six-​month old girl was fatally wounded in a drive-​by shoot­ing in Detroit, which may have ties to an Easter Sun­day deadly shoot­ing of a 3-​year-​old girl.

Pas­tor Ray Ander­son, an African-​American, was one of the orga­niz­ers of a Detroit anti-​violence rally held shortly after that mur­der. He said there, “I think that right now it’s a clear call for our com­mu­nity to really be out­raged at the vio­lence and the mur­der,” adding, “We talk about ‘black lives mat­ter’ — and we get in an uproar when it’s white on black or law enforcement…but this is some­thing: Prob­a­bly 95 per­cent of the vio­lence is black on black.”

True, very true.

Of course BLM activists care about the mur­ders of babies, but because there is no polit­i­cal angle to these heart­less crimes, they ignore them.

Per­haps they should rename their group Only Cer­tain Black Lives Matter.

Black Lives MatterBy John Ruberry

You very likely have heard about the Black Lives Matter movement, the hard-left screamers who regularly disrupt political gatherings and even attack people who proclaim “All Lives Matter.” One BLM leader called All Lives Matter a “new racial slur.”

A wrong turn into a dead end has been made from the sentiment of Martin Luther King, who proclaimed in 1963, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”

But Black Lives Matter is a political movement.

Last Monday a black Chicago teen, Pierre Loury, who was carrying a gun, was shot to death by police on the West Side as he climbed a fence during a foot chase. BLM quickly mobilized a rally attended by 200 or 300 so protesters the following night

On Friday afternoon a few miles from the site of the Loury shooting, a one-year-old named Khloe was shot in the neck while she was sitting the back seat of the car by assailants in a moving vehicle. There was a small peace rally at the site of the shooting yesterday–but no Black Lives Matters activists were visible.

Four years ago Khloe’s sister was wounded by gunfire three blocks from Friday’s shooting at a lemonade stand she set up.

Also on Saturday a six-month old girl was fatally wounded in a drive-by shooting in Detroit, which may have ties to an Easter Sunday deadly shooting of a 3-year-old girl.

Pastor Ray Anderson, an African-American, was one of the organizers of a Detroit anti-violence rally held shortly after that murder. He said there, “I think that right now it’s a clear call for our community to really be outraged at the violence and the murder,” adding, “We talk about ‘black lives matter’ — and we get in an uproar when it’s white on black or law enforcement…but this is something: Probably 95 percent of the violence is black on black.”

Perhaps they should rename their group Only Certain Black Lives Matter.
