I’m having less sympathy daily for Black Lives Matter activists.
The group started out peacefully enough, but that’s changing rapidly.
It’s organizers – who vary from state to state – have gone from just being rude to chanting dangerously provocative lyrics that call for police to be targets.
Protesters were captured on camera yelling "pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon" during last Saturday's four-hour march around the fairgrounds in St. Paul, Minnesota.
This generation of protestors claim to be peaceful, but what they’re actually saying and doing are two different things. Their protest came hours after a white Houston officer was gunned down execution style by a black man.
Black Lives Matter St. Paul organizer Rashad Turner told the Associated Press on Monday that no one was advocating for violence against law enforcement. He said it was meant to call for similar treatment between black people and police officers.
How does Turner get that meaning from “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon?” Is he claiming the chant is a politically correct way of saying they want to be treated equally?
If so, something is getting lost in the translation.
Time for me to walk on down the road…
