    My wife told me to watch what I post on FB. She works for a couple and the guy is a lawyer for a very well known national company. He told my wife they are firing folks that are against BLM. I have no reason to suspect he would lie about it.

    This is very scary, and the scariest part as Tucker pointed out is how quickly things changed. December 2019 BLM protestors chanted about "frying cops as pigs in blankets" and were criticized. Now, polls show that 64% of Americans support BLM. WTF?

    I think the "support" is all based on virtue signaling but the bottom line is these creeps are being rewarded for violence and that is NOT a good thing.

    I wonder if this is how the Muslim community felt right after 9/11? Yes, I know it is a different situation but, is it the fact that this political (BLM) movement is not afraid to use violence (looting, burning, rioting) as a tool to get what they want? I mean, it's not planes into buildings but, the fear of losing your livelihood because you vocally disagree with a political movement is the same.

    I don't think they are the same. Most in the Muslim community were not radicals or radical supporters. BLM is the radical arm, like Antifa, of the Democrat party. The money comes from somewhere. Heck I just read that Apple donated 150 million to "social justice" groups. There are layers to BLM. On the outer layer, you have those upset with black criminals being shot by police. Under that layer are the racists that want special treatments for blacks. Under that layer are probably white bagmen with loads of cash.

    64% of Americans are scared ****less of being "cancelled" or having their houses burned down, brains kicked in.

    OK. I'm retired, so I don't give a fat rats ass about blm. They're communist, terrorist pieces of sh!t. They're identical to isis... destroying historical statues. Next they'll be burning down the National Archives, or maybe West Point, 'cause Robert E. Lee graduated from there. They tried to burn down the church by the White House, only 'cause they couldn't get close enough to the White House.

    Fu-k 'em!!!

    See? Are you afraid? The intimidation is working...
    I choose every word carefully. I mostly ask the questions.

    If The President would stand up in Tulsa and call these BLM folks out, I wonder what would happen?
    Politics or country?
    We may be at the point in our republic(... If we can keep it) where we need to decide this again...

    So you are considerate enough to not paint all Muslims with the same brush, but are very sure you know who all of "BLM" actually is, in all contexts?

    Did you deduce that from research you did, or did somebody tell you that?

    The majority of BLM funding - to the tune of more than a hundred million dollars - came directly from a Soros organization.

    But wait, Apple just donated 150 million dollars, according to an earlier post. Is that the Soros organization you're talking about? If not, then 100 million dollars couldn't be the majority of the funding. Or are you talking about funding of a specific organization within the BLM-branded affiliiation of groups? What's the name of this Soros organization? Some people care about the details.

    the people who recently decided to support them really dont know their history or what they actually stand for...their website essentially stated trayvon and mike brown were shot in cold blood because of their skin color ...both shootings were justified , hand up dont shoot was a lie

    Did I say I was very sure? What is your point? Do you think all Muslims are radical or are you defending BLM? I am not sure. Someone asked Q and I answered it. If you think differently, let's hear it.
