Conservative Tribune is by far one of my favorite news sites, and like Conservative Tribune, I’m sure the overwhelming majority of news outlets that cover this Black Lives Matter story will make sure they do it in a way that is politically correct, so as not to offend anyone’s delicate sensibilities. I however, have no intention of following suit.
I wish I could say I feel an ounce of sorrow or remorse for the people that were run over by fed up motorists, but I don’t. Not one bit. I’m sorry. I’ve had it, and enough is enough. To begin with, Black Lives Matter is a farce. It’s a lie. It’s nonsense, and it’s about time people started treating it as such. The following are just a handful of examples of the lies these morons are using to disrupt the lives of others, and disrupting the lives of others is not a constitutionally protected right. Sorry.
Just because someone doesn't like a public policy, public official, or the outcome of some event DOES NOT give them the right to take the law into their own hands. Period. If they do, expect others to do unto them as they've done to others. With the exception of the Barack Obama Presidency, the United States has never been a banana republic where anything goes. This country is supposed to operate under the rule of law, and the law that stands above all others, is the Constitution. Someone has convinced these fools blocking traffic that they are exercising their first Amendment Rights, which makes me wonder, is there not one person within their communities intelligent enough to comprehend the First Amendment? Allow me to help…
"The First Amendment guarantees freedoms concerning religion, expression, assembly, and the right to petition. It forbids Congress from both promoting one religion over others and also restricting an individual’s religious practices. It guarantees freedom of expression by prohibiting Congress from restricting the press or the rights of individuals to speak freely. It also guarantees the right of citizens to assemble peaceably and to petition their government."
See the words, “the right of citizens to assemble peaceably?” Webster defines ‘peaceably’ as:
Not liking or wanting to fight or argue
Not involving violence or fighting
Is there any part of that definition that is difficult to comprehend? Hardly. The reality is that the ONLY thing Black Lives Matter has demonstrated on a consistent basis that they DO want to do is to fight, argue, or cause violence.
Not only are they NOT practicing the First Amendment, they are violating state law by blocking the roadway, and the police were inexcusably allowing it in an attempt to prevent a bunch of violent temper tantrums. That's absurd.
Where does it end? Who draws the line? What about the motorists who were stranded for hours, unable to get to school, work or other engagements, while activists stood across the road, demanding what they perceive as “justice,” (aka a lynching).
What if one of the motorists demanded THEIR perception of “justice” and decided to throw a Black Lives Matter activist off an overpass, since that was what THEY deemed “justice?” Where does it end?
Peaceful protestors do not block others right to free travel and to hold them hostage on a sweltering bridge. Taking hostages is what TERRORISTS do. Just the other day the antics of Black Lives Matter prevented a child from getting to St. Jude Hospital. Like I said, enough is enough. If Black Lives Matter activists want to act like lawless thugs, then they need to shut the hell up when they get treated like lawless thugs.
Personally, I am SO sick of people whining about race. This has nothing to do with race. This has to do with the rule of law. Without it, society devolves into anarchy, and people die. A classic example would be getting run over for standing in a road blocking traffic. These idiots don't get it both ways. They don't get to violate the law at will, and everyone else has to follow it. Reap what you sow fools.
Black Lives Matter activists have been staging protests and demonstrations in major cities across the United States, and while some have remained “peaceful,” others have led to violence.
Many of these protests have blocked major roadways and interstates, such as the Interstate 40 bridge in Memphis where motorists were recently stranded for hours, unable to get to school, work or other engagements, while activists stood across the road, demanding “justice.”
But, not everyone has bowed down to the protesters, and several have resorted to extreme measures to get through the blocked roadways. One social media user has created a video compilation of several instances where motorists have plowed through the activists with their vehicles.
WARNING: Video may contain graphic images
While we definitely do not condone running over Black Lives Matter activists, there has to be a reasonable compromise that doesn’t include blocking people from getting to school and work.
But of more concern is the fact that these protests have hindered emergency workers from tending to injured or sick people, and there has been at least one instance of these demonstrations preventing a child from getting to the hospital.
Furthermore, blocking a roadway is a crime under several state laws — including Tennessee where, despite the law, police officers were told to stand down and allow the protesters to block motorists from crossing the Hernando-Desoto Bridge in Memphis for several hours in the extreme heat, according to Fox News.
The recent deaths of two black men in Louisiana and Minnesota were certainly tragedies for their families and communities, but groups such as Black Lives Matter have jumped to the conclusion that the police officers who were responsible for those deaths were in the wrong and racially motivated.
The truth is that investigations into those deaths are ongoing, but even if the police officers in those instances were incriminated, it wouldn’t give license to activists to prevent innocent people from going to work or school. And in certainly doesn’t make it ok to block emergency responders from tending to the sick or injured.
We must find a way to have all of our voices heard in a truly peaceful and respectful manner. Until then, nothing we do will make a difference; it will be overshadowed by dramatic events and violence.
How do you think Black Lives Matter protesters who block major roadways should be handled? Like and share on Facebook and Twitter and let us know.
