We have leadership members at the highest levels of BLM engaging in the policing of social media platforms including Facebook. When the group identifies anyone making unfavorable remarks or promoting content critical of BLM, they then flex their muscles by contacting accomplices at the platforms who then shut down those criticisms. And they even go so far as to hire private investigators to go after the naysayers.
The truckers are trying to make a difference while the teachers’ unions have seized the Pandemic to leverage more money and power. There are some school districts where teachers have yet to return to the classroom. Billions of dollars were earmarked in the stimulus bills for education and upgrades to schools, some not to be spent for years to come. But this is not enough for these greedy bureaucrats.
The biggest problem with this plan is filling the positions in these revamped Police forces. Many experienced personnel were terminated in the last two years, and Police Academies were shut down. We need to convince a new generation of candidates that Law Enforcement is a stable and honorable profession. The Left has done such an excellent job at vilifying the Police. Let’s see how good they are at reversing the tide.

As you know, the Marxist organization known as “Black Lives Matter” hates America with a burning passion. Instead of just enjoying the Thanksgiving holiday with their friends and family, the BLM Twitter account attempted to shame Americans.
“You are eating dry turkey and overcooked stuffing on stolen land,” BLM tweeted on Thursday. “Colonization never ended, it just became normalized.”
As historical statues have come down across the country, some cities have given homage to BLM by painting streets with their logo or naming city areas after the victims of shootings like George Floyd Square in downtown Minneapolis. In my opinion, some cities did this to assuage BLM and to overcompensate for any hint of racism against the BLM group or its beliefs.
It’s likely that both that damage and a wearing off of the George Floyd effect are behind the group’s current lack of support. For, as Newshourfirst reports, BLM experienced a massive upswing in support after Floyd’s death, but that support evaporated as the group’s Marxist roots and violent propensities came to light over the summer of 2020, an effect which has likely built over time:
George Floyd had nine criminal convictions and had both methamphetamines and fentanyl in his system when he died in police custody in Minneapolis last year. Dajore Wilson loved SpongeBob Squarepants. Jacob Blake had been accused of sexual assault and domestic violence resisted arrest and was reaching for a knife when he was shot by police in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Dajore Wilson liked the color pink and enjoyed dancing.
We are all entitled to our opinions on Derek Chauvin’s guilt or innocence. The trial had been widely covered and broadly watched. Considering the intricacies of the case, reasonable people could have opinions either for or against conviction. But unless we were one of the twelve individuals who made up that jury, our opinions didn’t matter, and neither did the opinions of people like Maxine Waters.
He created a fake charity and used it to line his newly tailored pockets with cash, most of which was spent on guns, suits, and houses. Let’s see what similar charges come out against other BLM activists in the near future.
