The Brewing BLM Backlash

Over the weekend, hundreds of people in Chicago descended on the city’s Magnificent Mile to smash and loot businesses and attack police officers. Thirteen police officers were injured amid criminality so brazen (one looter drove a U-Haul up to a store to fill it with stolen goods) that even Chicago’s progressive mayor, Lori Lightfoot, had to concede that what occurred was “abject criminal behavior.”

The situation, which continued into the early hours of Monday morning, became so volatile that law enforcement raised the bridges all around the Chicago River and closed mass transit into the area. One Chicago alderman who spoke to the Chicago Tribune “described a scene in which officers were overwhelmed by looters and apparently did not have much of a plan for restoring order,” despite the fact that similar looting had occurred in both May and June in the city.

Earnest supporters who expected Black Lives Matter to denounce such lawlessness as antithetical to their movement’s goals might be surprised to learn that, on Tuesday morning, BLM Chicago organized a protest outside a Chicago police station in support of the arrested looters. “That is reparations,” one BLM activist told reporters. “Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.” BLM also issued a statement threatening more unrest unless the city gives in to its demands. ...

But some city dwellers are beginning to demand a reckoning from public officials, and their concerns reveal some serious cracks in the preferred narrative about Black Lives Matter protests, justice, and law enforcement.

The New York Times reports that several progressive black members of New York’s City Council, including Vanessa Gibson from the West Bronx, are challenging other council members’ efforts to defund the NYPD. Speaking of her constituents, Gibson said, they “want to see cops in the community. ...

It’s heartening to see cracks appearing in the progressive narrative about defunding the police and crime; it’s an acknowledgment of the complicated nature of the social challenges the country currently faces. But it remains a minority position on the left. ...

Just last week in Indianapolis, a group of BLM protestors illegally blocking a major street was filmed pulling guns on a driver who was trying to get around them. That’s hardly “peaceful” behavior (in some jurisdictions it would be aggravated unlawful restraint, which is a Class 3 felony).

In cities across the country, BLM protesters have been showing up at the private homes of officials to harass and threaten them throughout the night. A Native American city councilwoman in Seattle, who did not immediately throw her support behind a bill to abolish the police department, became the target of protestors who camped out on her lawn, shining bright lights into her home, shouting on bullhorns, and spray painting “corporate bootlicker” on her street. “It’s not a peaceful protest—it’s terror,” Ms. Juarez told the New York Times.

Similarly, a lawmaker in Oakland, California awoke in the middle of the night to protestors setting off firecrackers and throwing paintballs and eggs at her home, and in the morning found messages spray-painted on her home, including, “Black Ppl Use 2 Live Here.” As the lawmaker told a reporter, “This felt like a threat that certainly had a violent tone. And the intense damage to our property was significant.”

Armed, white neighbors protected the home of Seattle’s black police chief, Carmen Best, when protestors attempted to intimidate her in her neighborhood. And Mayor Jenny Durkan of Seattle, who was happy to have protestors occupy land in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood this summer, felt differently when protestors came to her home and spray-painted “Guillotine Jenny” on her street.

Note to those who continue to deny that crime is on the rise and that BLM protests are violent: Rioting and looting and violence can no longer be ignored, and peaceful protestors rarely invoke the guillotine.


BLM is a terrorist organization.

That was reparations? Fine. If that's what it was then that's what it was. The topic of reparations may now be closed forever.

Where will be the backlash? In those Libtard Zones mentioned in the above? Hardly.

Where there would be a backlash, BLM & Antifa are hardly present. And when they do show up, they get their asses handed to them and kicked out too soon enough anyway.

So no backlash will happen, I think.

The backlash is going to be the defunding of section-8, defunding TANF, defunding WIC, defunding payments to mothers based on fathers being in jail, defunding the medicaid expansion, defunding the department of education free/reduced school lunches, defunding taxpayer sponsored pre-kindergarten, and that's just in the first breath.

They don't even have cards at this point in my opinion. Their trophy mission is named after something EVERYONE can agree on. It's pure retardation and people, even left are picking up on it. People just need to say "yes black lives do matter.... and?....." Don't go for the all lives matter shit. Just say yes. And then they won't be able to even fart out a valid sound or reason why the "movement" is named what it is as white suburban nerds and basement boys.

Law enforcement and intelligence agencies could end this crap in a day. These morons plan their rioting and attacks on facebook and twitter, where it's all nicely available to government agencies. Stop their busses, arrest for conspiracy, interrogate until they break and tell you who's funding them. Arrest and try those people for sedition.

Why isn't this happening? Oh wait, that's right, FBI agents and LEOs report to and take orders from a handful of corrupt traitors within their organizations.

Anyone see a way to fix this non-violently? Not sure it's possible at this point. All the key authorities you'd require to do so have been strategically owned.

They can't. Trump would be labeled a dictator overnight. It honestly has to be stuff like what happened in Kenosha last night. You have to take away the incentive to riot. Cops will just stand down once they're outnumbered by a violent group. Not their fault they want to go home at night, so I don't blame them. Feds could come in, but it's still a numbers game and leaders looking like dictators. Resistance needs to come from within. It happened last night. We'll see how Kenosha is tonight. If it's less violent, then it worked. I'm guessing it worked, but we'll see.

If the Dems start condemning the riots, and they begin to disappear without any change in enforcement policy, we'll know for sure there is a connection between the Dems and the New Weathermen/BLM.

Not necessarily. There could be a three way connection with the Chinese/Soros agitpropers, Antifa & BLMers.

Btw, notice how Antifa is never mentioned ny name anymore?

"This isn't looking good," said one CNN analyst. "I mean, the buildings burning down and all the fires and property damage and violence are happening, and that's fine"

At least he's honest, which is damning by faint praise.

KENOSHA, WI—The aftermath of the riots are grim: dozens of fires were started, hundreds of buildings were burned down, and thousands of Trump voters were created over the past several days alone.

From out-of-control riots in Seattle and Wisconson to violence on the streets in Portland (or, as they call it, Wednesday), tons of property is being damaged, many are being harmed or killed, and, worst of all, new Trump voters are being created every minute.

"This isn't looking good," said one CNN analyst. "I mean, the buildings burning down and all the fires and property damage and violence are happening, and that's fine, but all the Trump voters this is creating -- that's a real tragedy. We must do something to counteract the devastation this will cause in November."

A study found that every burned-down building causes millions of dollars in property damage and creates up to 50 new Trump voters. A burned-out cop car can create up to 12 Trump supporters, while screaming at people in front of restaurants for not doing your salute can create over 100 Trump voters.

The power of framing is incredible. For example, what if “our problem with police shootings” was reframed as “our problem with people resisting arrest”? This is an equally if not more plausible reframe of the core issue.
