OOPS …

|| By FITSNEWS || We have no use for the “Black Lives Matter” organization.  Or its not-so-black leader.  Or the not-so-black politicians seeking to exploit it.

Our view? #LifeMatters (born or unborn).

Color, creed, age, gender, orientation … those things do not matter.

Anyway …

In an effort to co-opt the “Black Lives Matter” movement for its own political advantage, the Democratic National Committee (DNC) recently approved a “solidarity” resolution aiming to align itself with the organization.

“The DNC joins with Americans across the country in affirming ‘Black lives matter’ and the ‘say her name’ efforts to make visible the pain of our fellow and sister Americans as they condemn extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children,” the resolution stated.

The statement went on to name several of the group’s leaders – prompting the organization to issue a swift rebuke of the attempted courtship.

“We do not now, nor have we ever, endorsed or affiliated with the Democratic Party, or with any party,” the network’s leaders wrote on their Facebook page on Sunday. “The Democratic Party, like the Republican and all political parties, have historically attempted to control or contain black people’s efforts to liberate ourselves.  True change requires real struggle, and that struggle will be in the streets and led by the people, not by a political party.”

Interesting …

So does that mean they’re going the Louis Farrakhan route?

Truth be told, we agree 100 percent with “Black Lives Matter” when it says the two major political parties are worthless when it comes to promoting blacks’ best interests (financially or with regard to their individual liberties).

But we’ve said that before …

Again, #LifeMatters.  Doesn’t matter the color …

I’ll start. I’m a Democrat and it should be – All Live Matter

Neither. My heart felt position. You can be a Democrat and be a moderate, normal functioning person. With a few minor twitches.

Ooops – that’s what you get when you don’t have your reading glasses on.

The Colonel September 2, 2015 at 4:41 pm

Or your tablet thinks it’s smarter than you are.

Rocky Verdad September 2, 2015 at 4:43 pm

Was the glasses. I put them down getting a cup of coffee and the damned things went into hiding. And the other two pair I keep positioned around the house are hidding too. I hate when that happens. And with kids, I think of what my father used to complain about – like pencils that never have points – and I go outside and kick my own ass.

The Colonel September 2, 2015 at 4:45 pm

I use talk to text a lot when I am traveling and want to post or fool around on the internet so with me it’s usually the tablet. Of course I guess I could proofread…

Rocky Verdad September 2, 2015 at 4:48 pm

Nah. If it’s not your thesis, proofreading is over rated.

We bloggers are sometimes deep thinkers. For example, if pencils came with erasers at both ends, what would be the point?

I wrote a pregnancy blog
once with “can’t” and “don’t.” The first comment was: “You are having contractions.

I lie awake at night sometimes worrying that my words, phrases, and punctuation will end up in court. Why? To be sentenced, of course.

Before I found this site, at one time I was somewhat of a dedicated copy editor. Unfortunately, when I saw typos I became [sic].

While doing research for a blog on sign language, nothing handy came up, at least nothing I could put my finger on.

What you are saying Mr.Verdad is that even the party of the leftist kooks is getting in line and realize that the kookified policies of this administration cant be supported anymore. A lot of them knew it from the get go but they had to vote the party line. so if you are kook ( democrat) I wouldn’t admit it but it does show. They need to change the name from democrats to KOOKS.

All lives matter, but people should also be treated equally, and no, that is not the case today.

There are a lot of people in the BLM movement who are not nearly as oppressed as they claim they are. There are a lot of other people that dismiss actual discrimination and pretend that some groups do not actually face discrimination when they really do. The people in the middle understand that some inequality does exist, and simply want to take steps to fix those problems, but they are being ripped apart by the two extremes playing tug of war.

There is a need for this discussion, but people on both sides treat it as a game that they need to win. If that happens, there are no winners.

When BLM does not have a hissy fit when “All lives Matter” is uttered will be the time that I would consider meeting them in the middle. This group is so radical and preaches so much violence that they don’t deserve any consideration.

The Democrats had better be careful with this organization, it could end up being an “Albatross” around their political neck. This group is out and about espousing violence and should be pushed on the trash heap of of bad political/social ideas.
The Democrats reaching out to co-opt these nuts and having BLM reject them is hilarious. It also shows which way the democrat moral compass is pointing. And there has been several discussions on this blog lately about endorsements from certain groups to different political parties. Just keep this one in mind.

How amazing would it be if BLM turns into a voting block similar to the tea party and starts to split the dems the way the tea party has done to the GOP

Reply
erneba September 2, 2015 at 3:29 pm

That would be nice, but probably a small group at best. Any discontent that would cost them votes by people not voting for whatever reason would be a plus. It happens in the Republican Party often, people stayed home the last two Presidential elections giving us the mess we now have.
They might lose a few votes but most blacks will still go to the polls and vote Democrat.

Looks like we might need to add “Black Lives Matter” to this list:

Al Qaeda

ISIS

Hezbollah

Army of Islam

Boko Harum

Ansar al-Islam

Hamas

Islamic Jihad

etc…

Yeah, that relationship will never be broken given the dependence on political influence that is provided by the Democrat party.
