The rumor on the street is that hedge fund billionaire and rabid socialist, George Soros, has provided Black Lives Matter $12 million to ensure that the summer of discontent continues unabated right up to the presidential election in November. George Soros couldn’t care less about black lives or, for that matter, the lives of any Americans. This is a man who has publicly derided the USA and who is more than willing to spend his money in the pursuit of programs aimed at destroying it. If you don’t believe me, take a look at his Open Society Foundations’ list of grantees to see what motivates him.
It is no secret that Soros provided piles of money to put Barack Obama in the White House. And, Mr. Obama, community organizer that he is, seems more than willing to carry out Mr. Soros’ agenda by making sure every situation involving a cop and a dead black youth is used to further divide and fan the flames of racial hatred in our communities. Every tragedy elicits the same response: a call to weaken our Second Amendment rights and more rumblings about bringing police departments under federal control. Could it be that Mr. Obama cannot see his way clear to establish martial law and delay his departure from office without more violence on the streets and a national police force there at his command?
It was only a matter of time before the Black Lives Matter chant, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” became a reality on the streets of Dallas and now, as of this writing, Baton Rouge. At the behest of demonstration organizers, police in Dallas were summoned to protect the protesters and to keep law and order. Reports are it was a peaceful affair until shots rang out. We would later learn a lone assassin had positioned himself on a rooftop for the sole purpose of picking off white police officers. Under fire, the Dallas police officers did what they are sworn to do: they ran to protect the people protesting against them. Five of them would die.
In the aftermath, the chaos still fresh with many unanswered questions, President Barack Obama hustled to the microphone in Warsaw to again call for gun control: "We also know that when people are armed with powerful weapons, it makes shootings like this more deadly and more tragic," he solemnly intoned. Mrs. Clinton, recently the subject of so much bad press, was no doubt relieved to have media focus shifted elsewhere. At first she tweeted, “I mourn for the officers shot while doing their sacred duty to protect peaceful protesters, for their families & all who serve with them.” Later Mrs. Clinton must have felt it was her liberal duty to pander to her Black constituents, and so she too took to the microphone and made it clear that she believed there was systemic racism in the police departments of our nation.
Based on her comment, one might look at the numbers published by the FBI and expect to see overwhelming evidence to support this comment. But, like most things that Mrs. Clinton claims, the facts don’t bear out her conclusion. According to FBI figures, the police kill two white men for every black man who dies in an encounter. The black race makes up a little over 12% of the population yet accounts for almost 30% of the crimes committed. In truth, far more black men die at the hands of other black men. Based on figures available from the Chicago Police Department for 2011, 75% of those murdered were Black, and 71% of the perpetrators were Black. But, that means nothing to Black Lives Matter. It is also lost on both President Obama and Mrs. Clinton because it does not support the liberal narrative which is designed to ultimately strip the 2nd Amendment from the Constitution and disarm law-abiding American citizens. Those who participate in the Black Lives Matter demonstrations that more and more end in violence are simply being used by the Left and by George Soros to create the chaos necessary to bring about change, whether it’s gun control or government control of policing. They are, as the Soviets of old said about Westerners sympathetic to their cause, useful idiots.
The reality of freedom in America is that it guarantees that our police cannot do much about George Soros using his money to sow division and hatred among us, nor can they do much about Louis Farrakhan calling for the mass killing of white people. At the same time, we as American citizens can do much about it. We can shove our ignorance aside and look at situations with our own eyes and ears. We can draw our conclusions based on facts rather than allow our emotions to be pumped up by the sensationalism pedaled by a liberal media bent on accomplishing a liberal agenda. We can put aside race and hatred and find a middle ground to walk in another man’s shoes regardless of who he is or how we perceive him. Equality and justice is blind to race or status or level of education. Ignorance will always keep hatred and racism alive and because that is a true fact, those who make money and gain power from it will work very hard to exploit it—and only WE, the people can change that narrative.
