Only Black Lives Matter

There is on the Left no such thing as a spontaneous demonstration, protest or riot. The orchestration of political theatrics matters more to the Left than policy because the Narrative is always more powerful than reality -- and power is what it is all about.

On Saturday, the Black Lives Matter crowd shouted down Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Martin O’Malley with sing-song slogans that would embarrass Madison Avenue, but would draw knowing nods from Goebbels, Stalin  and Kim Jong-Un. You think Americans are immune to such manipulation? Hah! Germany was the best educated and technologically advanced country in Europe in the 1930s.

From the Hill:
“Black Lives Matter” protesters disrupted two 2016 Democratic presidential candidates during speeches in Phoenix on Saturday. 
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley both had question-and-answer sessions halted at the 2015 Netroots Nation conference. 
“Say that black lives matter,” demonstrators chanted at both men. “Say that I am not a criminal. Say my name.”
Activists began intruding on the event during O’Malley’s session with host Jose Antonio Vargas. 
“What side are you on?” they began singing at the former Maryland governor.
O'Malley later apologized for saying all lives matter.

Black Lives Matter is about black power in a manner more radical than Angela Davis but far less threatening.

It is stage management at its finest. The black lives that matter are not the nine Christians slain in a church in Charleston, South Carolina. Their lives do not matter to Black Lives Matter because they are true victims. You cannot divide black from white if everyone agrees. Indeed, this slaughter brought people together in the aftermath.

But Trayvon Martin? He was a thug sent to live with his father after his mother kicked him out.

Michael Brown? Attacked an officer and fired his gun.

These are divisive incidents -- the kind that create a crisis -- and everyone knows that Lefties never let a good crisis go to waste.

I do not pretend to know what the ulterior motive is. But there is one. I suggest conservatives wait and see what develops.

By the way, a reminder of how loathsome Missus Clinton is:


  1. If Black Lives Mattered to blacks, they would a) stop killing each other, b) stop aborting black babies, and c) start preaching how stupid killing each other is, and how stupid not going to school is. I see little hope for a and b, and next to zero for c,

  2. Black lives matter in Chicago which has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. A person is shot every 3 hours and 15 minutes and a person is killed every 18-and-a-half hours. The shooters and the shootees are almost always black. I'll start thinking black lives matter when blacks start acting like black lives matter. Until then STFU and go away. You people are booger eatin' moh-rons and are annoying. And O'Malley was right that all lives matter. He's an idiot for apologizing.

    Chicago statistics are here.
