Minneapolis can’t hold a candle to Chicago or Baltimore. However, a record number of homicides is still a record, and it all follows from a deliberate effort to encourage criminal activity and kneecap the only means the City has to address it. You can’t respond to calls for any crime if you are constantly understaffed. And those asked to take on the extra work will burn out quickly and maybe even become the next national news sensation.
County DA Summer Stephan is currently registered as an independent but had been a Republican until 2019. Most importantly, Stephan is not a Democrat. Additionally, though the county is now 56.3% Democratic as of 2016, one of the five members of the House of Representatives representing the county is Rep. Darrel Issa (R-CA), a highly influential and conservative member of the House.
Cullors has one person – plus someone helping her film, presumably – knocking at Cullors’ gated property where’ she’s obviously protected, whereas we have Supreme Court justices who are having their lives threatened by scores of angry protesters marching in front of their ungated homes. Are we supposed to pretend that the endangerment of SCOTUS justices is inconsequential whereas the threat to Cullors is urgent?
While much has been said in opposition to BLM, and their own corruption and duplicity have resulted in a dramatic crash in public opinion for the group, seldom has any been so effective and clever in dismantling their arguments as what we see in this video of a man with a bullhorn addressing a group of protesters at a health care facility:
What If There Was A Reasonable Explanation For Leftist Radicalism? What If It’s All Just Narcissism?
The numbers of this group have been estimated as about 2% of our species. The question then becomes, why do our standards have to bow to the tiny minority with these mutations? Political rights have always been extended to them. I have difficulty understanding why they find it necessary to stand on a soapbox and rant about their sex life. Heterosexual people do not spend time in this arena, indeed one would be ostracized if one did.
I would have more respect if a boy who wants to be a girl did so while competing as a boy. I am no doctor, but any boy has the benefit of testosterone coursing through his frame for years building larger and stronger bones and the capacity for dense muscles with little stored fat. He has never had a menstrual cycle or managed it with grace while still living and working in a high-pressure social and economic environment of desired equality.
There were many absurd assertions made by Cullors during the almost hour-long dialogue, with the interviewer sounding more like a cheerleader than someone seeking insight. Cullors made her appeal for slavery reparations. She played the ‘woe is me routine’ about the online scrutiny BLM has received on social media. But, as we’ve come to expect, the most prominent aspect of her schtick continued to be her ‘I’m a victim’ routine.
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.
Let’s be perfectly clear about one thing: Black Lives Matter (BLM) does not care about police brutality. BLM cares only about one thing. Power. The latest silence on the part of American and Canadian BLM chapters provides the starkest illustration of this sentiment yet.
Many of their protesters were armed and a lot of people were injured or killed. The Democrat response? Deescalate police presence and political support for law and order which not only increased the likelihood of personal and property crime, in some minority neighborhoods crime rose as much as 500% and continue to do harm to people of color.
After a DC officer was injured and the deaths of two NYPD officers, the Black Lives Matter chapter of Washington, DC, has called for the public not to automatically hail cops shot on the job as “heroes” before all facets of a situation are evaluated. I can appreciate the waiting for all the facts before any determination is made. I question the timing of their demand.
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.
