Flood Shows True Colors Of Black Lives Matter | The American Conservative

Nothing against him, but I wouldn’t contribute to this guy’s GoFundMe campaign. Give instead to a relief fund you can count on. Still, the points he makes are dead on target. Where is Black Lives Matter? Not in Baton Rouge this week, that’s for sure. I guess black lives only really matter to those activists when they’ve been taken by cops, not when they’ve been saved by cops. Which is happening every single day down here. White people and black people, including Baton Rouge police officers (half of whom lost their homes), working together to save white people and black people and all kinds of people.

This doesn’t make all the problems of police brutality and black violence go away. But it does put them in perspective.

Hey all you liberal churches up North with your Black Lives Matter banners out front — where you at? Get down here and help. All Lives Matter. The flood waters are not prejudiced. They hate everybody.

This disaster has been clarifying in many ways. Good thing BLM has $100 million in pledges from rich liberal foundations, I guess, because after this experience, they’re not going to get much of a hearing down here.

But look, I have a challenge to white people who take satisfaction in this: What are you doing to help black lives, white lives, Asian lives, Latino lives, and all lives wrecked by this flood? I talked to a conservative I know yesterday, here in Louisiana, someone who is full of strong political opinions, and I came away discouraged. This person has resources and time to help, but won’t do a damn thing for anybody, except sit in front of Fox News and the local news coverage and offer nothing — not a drink of water, not a bed to sleep in, not a hot meal to the homeless refugees — but opinions.

They probably saved several black lives in offing that one threatening piece of garbage.

maybe they are regular people who helped save lives by helping in the rescue of stranded people, helped at shelters and are cooking and helping people get through this crisis.

There's few things white conservatives love more than a black man supporting their views. Even the most menial argument towards a liberal view from a black man is liked and shared a million times.

I'm waiting for the grassroots movement for this dude to be that sheriff from Wisconsin's running mate in the next election.

I've always wondered why if a black person says something negative about the black community, the conservatives are all over it like he must know what hes talking about, he's black. But if a white person comes out and says something negative about the white community, the conservatives just says he's an idiot and he doesn't know what he's talking about.

In all seriousness, why would it be expected that a group that formed around concerns about police misconduct involving black citizens shift their focus to something outside of that scope? And has it been determined that BLM, nor any of its supporters, has done nothing to assist?

There are many groups, organizations, and enterprises, with stated missions and functions, that aren't specifically called out like this at times of crisis.

well, if he had come down, people would just moan and groan about him being here for photo ops. maybe he took a play out of the George W handbook.
"I hate Obama"
"where's Obama?"
