In the America envisioned by Black Lives Matter (BLM), white people are not safe. The video shows a clear case of assault. The protester deliberately and violently attacked the news reporter who posed no threat.
This is the real crux of the issue with BLM. They don’t want social justice or reform. They just want an excuse to act out on their dangerously racist beliefs.
BLM has protested roughly a dozen police shootings this year. Incidentally, they have caused roughly a dozen casualties this year in their violent protests. Injuries and destruction of property range much higher.
The simple facts that supporters of the movement always want to overlook is that fewer than 10 police killings every year are even suspect. The reason the police consistently aren’t charged is because there isn’t enough evidence to present a court case.
While every one of the deaths is tragic, none of them are criminal. If the police were really so overtly racist and dangerous, then why does even Obama avoid directly supporting BLM? He’ll use the racial tension to his benefit, but he is the one person in the country who could easily change police oversight, and he hasn’t even mentioned it.
This isn’t a movement for change. It’s a movement for destruction.
