    #BlackLivesMatter “based on a lie”

    #BlackLivesMatter “based on a lie”

    Heather MacDonald unloads the truth about Black Lives Matters movement

    In the wake of the horrifying and incomprehensible shootings in Dallas that left four police officers and one rapid transit officer dead and another seven people wounded, Heather MacDonald appeared on Rush’s radio show. She shared statistics and asserted that the entire Black Lives Matter movement is “based on a lie.”

    MacDonald, you may recall, made similar points on a radio podcast interview that we posted at Legal Insurrection about the Black Lives Matter movement and the threat they pose to our nation’s police officers.

    In that interview, MacDonald “spoke out against the crippling influence that the “Black Lives Matter” movement is having on the quality of life in the very neighborhoods where the protests are taking place”:

    I think this is an even more extreme example of the way this country deals with race and policing, which is to talk fanatically about police in order not to talk about the far more difficult problem of black crime.

    Here is the podcast of that interview:

    On Rush’s show, McDonald notes how Obama has embraced the false narrative of police aggression creating an atmosphere in which police are backing off community policing::

    Well, Rush, President Obama lied to the nation last night, and he embraced the Black Lives Matter myth that there is a racist war by white officers against black civilians in this country.  And we see the results.  In fact, there’s no government agency more dedicated to the proposition that Black Lives Matter than the police. Proactive policing has saved tens of thousands of minority lives since the mid‑1990s.

    And now police officers are backing off.  They’ve been backing off before the Dallas assassinations under the assault of hatred that is being spewed at them on the streets. But above all in the mainstream media by activists and by politicians from the White House on down, they’re backing off of proactive policing, and crime is going up astronomically, as much as 90 percent in cities with large black populations.  And now, after these Dallas shootings, officers are going to be even more reluctant to engage.  And the result is going to be more carnage.

    She goes on to back up her position with statistics.

    Well, let’s look at some of the numbers.  I know numbers are sometimes tough over the radio, but a larger proportion of white and Hispanic homicide deaths are the results of police killings than black homicide deaths.  That is, 12 percent of all whites and Hispanics who die of homicide are killed by police officers.  Four percent of all blacks, homicide victims, are killed by police officers.  So if we’re going to have an Anti‑Cop Lives Matter movement it would make more sense to call it White and Hispanic Lives Matter.

    The fact is that over 6,000 blacks die of homicide each year.  That is more than white and Hispanic homicide victims combined, even though blacks are 13 percent of the nation’s population.  And the reason they are dying of homicide at a rate six times higher than whites and Hispanics combined is because they commit homicide at eight times the rate higher than whites and Hispanics combined.  And that type of crime disparity means that when the police are trying to save lives, they are in minority neighborhoods confronting people engaged in drive‑by shootings, killing children.

    . . . . Over the last decade, black males made up 40 percent of all cop killers, even though they’re six percent of the population.  It turns out, Rush, that a police officer is 18-and-a-half times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is likely to be killed by a police officer.

    With regard to the Black Lives Matters movement itself, MacDonald contends that the whole thing is based on a lie.

    It is so appropriate that the Black Lives Matter movement took off on the basis of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson, which as you say, Rush, was a hoax and has continued to venerate Michael Brown as a martyr to police brutality, which is also a hoax, because the entire movement is based on a lie.

    It is simply not the case that the police are disproportionately shooting black males when you take violent crime into account.  And for President Obama to give that movement any credibility when it is now threatening law and order itself, we are at risk of attacking the very foundation of civilization if this type of hatred continues.

    With respect to the Minneapolis shooting, it will come as no surprise (at least to some of us) when it is confirmed that Diamond Reynolds, disguised as a man, was Philando Castile’s accomplice — the Newport cigarette-toting one — when he robbed the Lauderdale convenience store, at gunpoint, on July 2nd.

    [Kindly search eastsidereviewnews Lauderdale convenience store robbery for surveillance photos of the two robbers]

    You might recognize the hips and smallish feet on the brightly dressed perp in the second surveillance photo as being more characteristic of a female than a male. The long, lean face is consistent with Ms. Reynolds’ photos on Google. The little moustache and wig(?) are nice touches, don’t you think? Ms. Reynolds apparently shares with the perp a fondness for Newport smokes, too, judging from photos taken during her interviews. Doesn’t she realize that cigarettes can cause cancer or, perhaps even worse, shatter one’s web of lies? Prison awaits the young lady. Justice has already been served on her boyfriend.

    Case closed, good night, all!

    “Hands Up Don’t Shoot”
    The BIG fat lie that started this fiasco!
    And our politicians and liberal media continue to push
    this falsehood!

    There have been a few “Uncalled for” shootings of blacks by white cops but there aren’t many. In all of the “Famous” cases that we are all familiar with, the facts all changed after the msm got through with their lies. The shooter in Dallas was kicked out of the Army and the driver in MN had a gun on his lap which the Mexican-American cop saw. Considering that the cop stopped the car because of a BOLO on his radio, there is no other reaction he could have had but to shoot when the driver dropped his hands down. There was no tail light mentioned by anyone but that hag in the car with him. In fact, the dispatcher said that Yanez, the cop, had radioed in that he was stopping what looked like the two robbers of a convenience store the day before. There was no mention of a tail light. This is so much like the Zimmerman and Brown incidents that it makes me sick. Hasn’t the msm learned anything from their debacles before?

      You’re right, the only report we have of it being a chicken-shit tail light stop came from Diamond/Lavish, and almost everybody seems willing to take her word for it. She also kept referring to Castile reaching for his WALLET at the moment of the shooting when Yanez was probably referring to Castile reaching for his GUN, cleverly getting that allegation on the recording ASAP.

      Notice how distraught Yanez was after the shooting, and how calm and cool Diamond was when she was building a case for murder against Yanez while her “boyfriend” bled out at her side. She did some theatrical wailing at around 9:04 to about 9:30 in the video, but the close-up of her face from 9:44 to 9:46 showed NO TEARS.

        I’m tellin’ you, she’s gonna wish she had quit those Newports!

        Has anyone in MN thought to look in the late Mr. Castile’s wallet for that CCW he was supposedly reaching for?

          Milhouse in reply to Rick the Curmudgeon. | July 10, 2016 at 11:20 pm

          I’m sure the police went through his pockets, and we will hear about their contents in due course. I’m waiting for facts before reaching conclusions. This may turn out exactly as the BLM folk claim it did. If so it’ll be the first time they got a story right, but there has to be a first time, doesn’t there? Still, the smart bet is that it won’t be this one.

    I wish some good cop would leak the dash cam video.

    #Blacklivesmatter is a Soros funded group.

    Soros recently destabilized Ukraine by funding anti cop demonstrations and he’s doing it here too.

    Militarized police is a real issue. Black crime is a real issue. But Soros is only interested in destabilizing the country for his personal profits and personal politics.

    When the time for a dialogue comes, it would be a mistake to let #blacklivesmatter anywhere near the table.
