Black Lives Matter has finally gotten out of the middle of interstates and quit shrieking long enough to publish their “manifesto”.
Unsurprisingly, it’s the same old racial warfare stuff:
In a policy agenda titled “A Vision for Black Lives: Policy Demands for Black Power, Freedom and Justice,” organizers call for policing and criminal justice reforms.
It also includes a request for the passage of a bill that would create a commission to study reparations for descendants of slaves.
The document also calls for changes in U.S. educational policy including free tuition and retroactive forgiveness on federal student loans.
Not a word on black-on-black crime. It’s all about getting stuff for nothing. Because, you know, they’re “owed” this stuff. The SJW invented “white privilege” is what justifies their grab.
The fact that none of them have been a slave or have ever even known a slave, have had the right to vote before they were even born and are students at some of the most elite educational institutions in the world, many of them on full rides, doesn’t matter one whit.
They perceive themselves to be victims. To be discriminated against. Micro-aggressions, you know, those nasty little comments and actions that they can handily interpret (because it supports their agenda and because white guilt for some reason lets them get away with the nonsense) as “racism”. And, of course, they’ve redefined “racism” so they can never be accused of being what they denounce even though they are the very definition of the old racism definition.
So … nothing new here. Just a bunch of petulant, spoiled, entitled people demanding something for nothing. Well, not “nothing” – they demand you pay for it.
These types have been a part of the world since it’s creation. And when they get in the position where they can dictate how society functions, we all know what happens.
It’s one reason I call them “The New Red Guard.”
This week, Bruce, Michael, and Dale talk about Ukraine, the Bundy case in Nevada, and the increasing arbitrariness of the Federal government.
