I applaud this community for rejecting BLM demands. The article says “The proposal didn’t seem like too much of an ask…”. Well, it was!! I firmly believe the “silent majority” who are paying close attention but not voicing any opinion, will be heard on voting day. BLM has no right to “assume” they can put their message wherever they want. Believe it or not, other people have opinions that are “equal”. BLM doesn’t want equality, they want superiority and they use race and intimidation as a club to get it.

How many people feel this way now? How many will feel this way by November? The “activists” seem to be trying to make sure it’s as many as possible. 37 states? Some are working to make it 45. Then again, the last time the left went this crazy, we got 1972, with more than 45.

But don’t get cocky.

PEOPLE WHO CLAIM TO HOLD THE MORAL HIGH GROUND ABUSE A GRIEVING DAUGHTER: Teenage daughter of one of two Texas cops shot dead in ambush deletes emotional tribute to her ‘hero’ father after backlash for using #bluelivesmatter in the post.

The teenage daughter of a Texas cop killed in an ambush over the weekend was slammed by critics online after posting a moving tribute to her father that included the hashtag #bluelivesmatter.

Savannah Chavez, the grieving daughter of Officer Ismael Chavez, 39 – one of two cops fatally gunned down in McAllen on Saturday – uploaded the post just hours after her father’s death.

‘Words cannot describe the pain I’m in, but I’m glad my dad is at peace. You were an amazing man and anyone who ever came across you knew that,’ Savannah had written. ‘I’m going to miss you so much. You died doing what you loved most, you died a hero. I love you daddy, see you soon. #bluelivesmatter’

But within minutes, the 18-year-old began receiving messages of contempt from people online criticizing her for using a ‘racist’ hashtag – causing her to delete the post all together.

‘Being a cop is a choice. Lmao and last time I checked, blue people don’t exist. Maybe educate yourself?’ one person replied.

‘Blue lives matter was literally created in response to and to undermine black lives matter. There’s no other connotation unfortunately,’ added another.

A third person wrote to Savannah insisting, ‘Blue lives matter was literally created in response to and to undermine black lives matter. There’s no other connotation unfortunately.’

‘I am so sorry for your loss but you didn’t have to use a racist hashtag,’ added another, who later identified herself as a high school student.

Others even tweeted Savannah the names of people killed by police officers in other areas of the country.

Don’t worry folks, your fame isn’t over. Donald Trump will be quoting your tweets between now and the election. When he mentions your names, you’ll complain about being “bullied.” But you bullied a teenager with a murdered dad, and no amount of sloganeering will change that.

Flashback: “At the beginning, pretty much the whole country was united in horror at what happened to Floyd, and a desire to do something about it. Then the Red Guard came in and started rioting, attacking and dividing people. If people do things that keep us from coming together as a nation and solving our problems, maybe it’s because they don’t want us to do that.”

JIM TREACHER: Black Lives Matter Mural at Trump Tower Draws Angry Crowd. “All of this lying, race-baiting, and violence isn’t just random chaos. This lunacy is all part of the Democrats’ plan. If you want to control people, you need to set them against each other. You need to make them afraid to say the wrong thing, and ‘the wrong thing’ can change at any moment, for any reason or no reason at all. If people can get killed for saying all lives matter, they’ll stop saying it.”

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: How Trump Wins.

In truth, he needs to eschew “I” and substitute “we.” A record low percent black unemployment rate? That translated into job seekers having leverage over employers and with it dignity and value. Gas prices falling due to expanded oil production? That means the minimum wage worker can afford her commute. Returning industry? That means more clout, honor, and a good living for an unemployed middle-aged worker in Ohio and Michigan, and less fuel for the Chinese Communist Party.

Tweeting cannot be about the past, but only the present and future. Trolls, washed-up celebrities, know-nothing pampered athletes, and hack leftists don’t deserve mention in the campaign’s final 100 days.

Ignore them all and focus on Restoration, 2021—and how the president has a detailed plan to focus on all classes and races, while reminding us of what we owe the dead and all that they have given us.

Read the whole thing.
