Black Lives Madder, Some May Stay Home on Election Day
Democrats have caused Black Lives Matter (BLM) to become Black Lives Madder. Many activists in the domestic terror group are so angry at the Democratic Party for not addressing what they see as their most pressing issues, that they are threatening to stay home on Election Day in November.
Why so angry?
Hawk Newsome, a BLM activist, is furious that neither political party has done anything to bring about positive change, in his opinion, in the criminal justice system. He is starting a campaign called “I Ain’t Voting,” in which he hopes to inspire others to go against the conventional wisdom of past civil rights leaders, and withhold their votes.
Newsome explains his position this way:
“Neither party has stepped to the front and made Black Lives Matter a priority,” he says. “Hillary Clinton has the votes of millions of African-Americans in her hands. But she’s promoting herself. And the problem is that we are settling for that!
Black Americans have a chance right now collectively to say to the Democrats: ‘Hey, if you don’t give us criminal justice reform, we’ll give the country to Donald Trump.’ That’ll send the Democrats into a frenzy. Black lives will matter then, I guarantee you.”
Of course, Hawk’s mindset is based on the false narrative that police officers are constantly hunting black men they can shoot. Simply by virtue of his membership in BLM, many would question his judgment. But, for once, there may be something to like about BLM.
Something to like about BLM?
For decades, African-Americans have blindly voted for the Democratic Party – the Party of slavery, Jim Crow, and the KKK – with little to show for it. It’s not surprising there are many black lives madder than they were before.
If his campaign catches fire within the movement, Newsome, and many of his racist brothers and sisters, will be sleeping in on Election Day this November. So, for all the negative elements of the BLM movement, not voting could very well be their greatest contribution to our country.
It’s this simple: As sacred as the right to vote is, some unstable people shouldn’t necessarily exercise their right to do so.
