Do black lives really matter? Of course they do. So do all the other colors of the rainbow, but don’t say that to Black Lives Matter.
Typically it’s the right that deals with protests from groups like this, but former President Bill Clinton was their target this time on the campaign trail. Defending his wife, Clinton stood up to their shouts, proving he still has the chops that, in part, made him so popular.
“I don't know how you would characterize the gang leaders who got 13-year-old kids hopped up on crack and sent them onto the street to murder other African-American children," Clinton said. "Maybe you thought they were good citizens. She didn't. She didn't. You are defending the people who killed the lives you say matter. Tell the truth.”
Former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis has also voiced his opposition to the Black Lives Matter movement, questioning their sincerity on Facebook.
“I'm trying to figure out if black lives really matter. In Chicago alone, the murder rate soared 72 percent in 2016. Eighty-eight percent in the first three months of 2016 compared to last year. I'm trying to ask the question if --- to an organization of black lives is if they really mattered, then why not riot now?"
What's the true intent behind the Black Lives Matter movement? Is it really to protect black lives or to foment unrest? One need only follow the money to answer those questions.
“If you are part of Black Lives Matter, you're lying to yourself. Black lives don't matter," Glenn said. "You're being used . . . you know what they're doing? Occupy Wall Street, Black Lives Matter have teamed up and taken money from George Soros to march in Washington and Philadelphia in what is being described as the largest civil unrest and civil disobedience since the 1960s --- organized and paid for by George Soros."
The theme of the summer's planned protests is, "Money out of politics."
"You've got to be kidding me," Glenn said. "An old white guy is buying you.”
