Not even a week has passed since the tragic killing of six Dallas police officers by an anti-white radical, and yet Black Lives Matter continues to persist in it’s irresponsible activity as if it didn’t even happen.
Across the nation (and in one case across the Atlantic), outraged activists have taken to the streets in support of the controversial anti-police movement. From Phoenix to New York, protestors, seemingly having learned nothing from the horrific events of the previous week, continue to spew inflammatory speech and engage in violent behavior.
For instance, the agitators in Phoenix have started trying to block highway routes in order to disrupt traffic and raise “awareness” for their cause. Meanwhile in the UK, Black Lives Matter sympathizers have rallied in London in support of their American compatriots, showing that the group is beginning to exert influence on an international scale. in spite of the movement’s repeated claims that it is “non-violent”, high-profile supporters like the dean of the University of Charleston have publicly called for people to become “martyrs” to the cause. In the wake of Dallas, you would think that the dean would be careful about making such remarks, especially since Micah Xavier Johnson likely saw himself as one of these “martyrs”.

The speed with which Black Lives Matter returned to the rabble-rousing they are so known for following the Dallas killings shows that they couldn’t care less about the lives of the law enforcement officers who lost their lives in the line of duty. As the unrest and chaos in Rochester, Phoenix and countless other cities shows, Black Lives Matter only cares about lives it can use to advance it’s agenda:
“According to WHAM, the local television outlet in Rochester, New York, that saw two of its reporters arrested then released, the reason there were so many arrests is because protesters had blocked the streets.
‘Dozens of protestors blocked streets in downtown Rochester Friday night and early into Saturday morning as Rochester Police patrol the streets around them,’ WHAM wrote. ‘Most of the crowd was centered around East Avenue and Alexander Street, a popular spot for Rochester nightlife. Witnesses report seeing multiple people being taken away by police officers. Several of the protestors were chanting, ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ and ‘Black lives matter!’ The crowd started to gather around 9:45 p.m. with about 100 people in attendance.’
In response, officers arrested a number of the protesters–and then the number of protesters quickly dwindled. Novel concept!
‘Rochester Police in riot gear started to move people out of the intersection around 10:15 p.m. When protestors continued to block the street and refused to move, several were arrested,’ WHAM added. ‘As the number of arrests began to increase, the number of protestors began to dwindle.’”
