    For your enjoyment, I'll now present a hypothetical conversation between the NRA and GTPI:

    NRA: The Second Amendment Matters.

    GTPI: All amendments matter!

    NRA: Well, yeah, but our organization focuses on the Second Amendment.

    GTPI: So you're saying all other amendments don't matter?? Traitors!

    NRA: No, all other amendments are good, but our organization focuses on the Second...

    GTPI: All amendments matter! We're saying it louder now to make us more right.

    NRA: It's not about being right, it's about tackling a specific problem: attacks on the Second Ame...

    GTPI: All amendments matter!

    NRA: Is there anyone else here we can talk to? An adult maybe?

    Let’s see. It started based on a well refuted lie. “That Brown was not attacking, had his hands up...” It’s been proven a lie. And the lies continue. It’s Black Lies Matter. In almost EVERY cause they champion. It winds up being mostly lies.
    But that’s after lives are lost, businesses destroyed....

    Shouting "all lives matter" isn't going to do anything to bring America back together.

    I agree 100%. That the BLM movement started with Michael Brown is a tough hurdle to overcome. That they still invoke his name (and many others they shouldn't) is entirely unhelpful to their cause. It's because BLM is a global "movement" and not an organization in any sense of the word. There is no central messaging. There are a lot of people who claim association to it and/or leadership of it who are not helping it at all.

    But above all, Black Lives Matter is a slogan, one that addresses a specific issue, which in itself has validity, in spite of the missteps and misdeeds of many of the people who adopted it and pretend to speak for it. To shout it down with a derivative slogan like All Lives Matter is dismissive and offensive to the original, and while many on the right intend to be just that, there are still people who honestly don't understand why "All Lives Matter" is perceived in a negative light. In itself it's a fine slogan, but in the context it's used, to shout down and dismiss somebody else's specific cause, it is offensive.

    BLM condoned the burning down of cities, and never attempted to say that is not what they stand for.

    BLM is a powerful organization that does not take responsibility for what they have incited.

    BLM cause is offensive.

    How is it an organization? Plenty of people have attempted to say that looting and rioting is not what they stand for. Some were even posted on this forum. They speak for BLM as much as anybody else, because BLM is not an organization, so they have no official spokespeople.

    There are 8 billion people on the planet. Since there is an over abundance of humans, no lives matter. When there are only a million people left then all lives would matter.

    Pretty sure Target, Bank Of America, and a bunch of others donated millions to BLM.

    How is it not an organization?

    The voices of black people sympathetic to the BLM cause who denounce violence and denounce black criminals are every bit silenced by the MSM as conservatives are. So how are we to accurately judge what the real motivations of the BLM movement are? The MSM is 100x more dangerous to this country than BLM is. They thrive on this conflict. All we can attempt to do is to see through their BS. We can attempt to engage directly with the people the MSM paints as our enemies, and see where they really stand. If we do that instead of shouting them down and threatening to shoot them, maybe we can deprive the MSM of their power over us.

    Nope, they didn't.

    Those organizations they mentioned are organizations. Maybe. They didn't even say they're giving the money directly to those.

    Lots of big business donating money to them, who is overseeing that and what is it spent on?

    Black Lives Matter have received over $100 million in funding from the Open Society Foundations, Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy among others.[70][71] In addition, the Black Lives Matter Movement has received support from organizations and foundations like the Black Youth Project 100, the Black Civic Engagement Fund, the Center for Popular Democracy, Color of Change and the Advancement Project.[72]

    Get real.

    BLM is recieving hundreds of millions.

    With great power comes great responsibility.

    BLM stands for destruction, and they don't take personal responsibility for it.

    So because they say they are, they are? You realize they're saying this because that's what people want to see, right? We already know donations to "Black Lives Matter" (at least at blacklivesmatter.com, which, as you know, anybody can set up a website) go to ActBlue Charities. You think the people who donate care? They can now say they donated to BLM, which is their only goal.

    That nobody cares (including yourself) about the truth behind the claims is part of the reason we're in this mess.

    Well I disagree. Communist lives do not matter to me. Followers of DEMONcrat politicians too stupid or brainwashed to see truth lives do not matter to me. Anybody looting, hurting fellow citizens, or taking over city blocks lives do not matter to me. No more capitulating or compromising, for these actions got us here today.
