You better not shout!
You better not cry!
You better not pout!
I’m telling you why!
BLM is coming to town!
Today at 4 pm pst, Justice Advocates & Resources (JAR) of East County is promoting a protest against the hiring of a former San Francisco PD officer and demanding his removal immediately from the force. Additionally, they are seeking the removal of another officer from heading up the local Police Officer’s Association.
The “hosts” for this protest, which will march from a local park to the Police Department are activist groups:
Besides the removal of the police officer, the various groups are demanding that White Supremacy be eliminated out of our fair city. So let’s see where that White Supremacy comes from.
43% of the city is white.
23% is black.
10% is Asian
11% two or more races
15% is Other (presumably Hispanic)
Hmmmm………….so the city is less than 50% white. How can White Supremacy exist there?
Let’s add to this. Chief of Police is black. Many members of the PD are black and hispanic. Can’t really say White Supremacy is there.
Each neighborhood has its fair share of blacks. None are all or predominately white. Even in the “better” neighborhoods. Don’t see how that qualifies.
The city council is composed of 5 people of which 2 are black. Nope, that does not really work either.
Over the last couple of weeks, various members of these activists groups have been trying to get their grievances “heard.” Actions have included banging on doors and using force to get into school board meetings to intimidate board members. Cornering the mayor outside his office and then when he ran back in and locked the door, trying to again force their way in.
But to hear the activists tell their story, they are being peaceful and law abiding. It is the politicians causing the problems.
Then there are the “hunger strikers” out in front of the Police Department. They have painted Black Lives Matter graffiti on walls outside of the PD. When the graffiti is cleaned off, the strikers claim that this is evidence of White Supremacy and that Black Lives do not matter.
Most of the protesters are young people, not much over 20 years old. None have enough life experience to even really understand the real world. Just tools of the radical left.
Of course, being the Bay Area, there is the smattering of old farts included with them. These are generally leftists who lived their better days in the late 60’s and early 70’s, protesting the government then. They seek to get in one more “last hurrah” before they expire.
Today is going to be very interesting to say the least. Besides the activist groups, there will likely be the BLM groups which have been invited, as well as AntiFa, who are seeking to move in on the ‘burbs.
We can only hope that everything will remain peaceful, but with what has been seen so far, there is a good chance that things will get out of hand.
At least we have a great Police Department that will respond as necessary to keep things under control.
In the meantime
LIFE IS GOOD!
(Even under smokey skies)
