Not that long ago a petition was made to compel the White House into acknowledging that Black Lives Matter is a terrorist group.
The petition earned enough votes (over 100,000) to require a response from the president. Of course, he refused to grant the petition’s wishes, defending the activist group. This after their dangerous and reckless rhetoric caused the deaths of numerous police officers.
There has been a movement recently online trying to defend the group, claiming it has nothing to do with the violence and protests going on in our cities.
Yet from the very start, BLM was inciting hate and violence against white Americans. They paint a picture that white Americans are to blame for every woe in society. Despite decades of reform and Civil Rights victories, they maintain that white people are still overwhelmingly racist to black Americans.
This kind of talk is nothing less than hate speech. It creates animosity between two groups that should find ways to work together and coexist. So it comes as no surprise when followers of BLM act out in violent, aggressive ways towards white people, or anyone that disagrees with them.
In an assault captured on video, Feras Jabro, a Donald Trump supporter wearing a “Make America Great Again” baseball cap, was harassed, chased, thrown to the ground and beaten by Black Lives Matter activists at a protest in El Cajon, California.
Fox News Channel correspondent Will Carr caught some of the beating on video:

The vicious attack happened on the second night of protests in the San Diego suburb of El Cajon, where Black Lives Matter protesters are angered about the police shooting death of Alfred Olango, 38. El Cajon police say they shot and killed Olango after responding to a call from his sister that he was acting erratically. Olango refused to comply with police orders, then “assumed a shooting stance” with what appeared to be a gun, but later turned out to be a vape cigarette electronic device.
Despite media reports describing the protests as “peaceful,” Wednesday night’s protest included not only the beating of a Trump supporter, but also direct confrontations with the police.
They can find any excuse they like, but Black Lives’ Matter protestors cannot justify violence against innocent bystanders. How can we take anything they say seriously, when they encourage this kind of hate and destruction?
Are these activists right in attacking a man with a Donald Trump hat? Is this where are country is going, people can’t speak their mind without fear of violent retribution?
Until the leaders of Black Lives Matter condemn the actions of their followers, from beating a civilian to shooting cops, they will still be considered a threat. Until they actually work to bridge the divide they help create between white and black Americans, they are doing no good for this country.
I won’t hold my breath waiting.
