“Cops should fry like bacon.” Those are the words of BLM speaker Letha Winston. She went on to say “We’re here to take our streets back,” and referring to police “They need to hang you high. … they need to send you to the electric chair and let you fry like a piece of burnt bacon.” But Winston isn’t the only BLM activist calling for violence.
In Chicago, BLM organizer Ariel Atkins encouraged looting as a form of “reparations.” Later she bizarrely claimed that the “whole idea of criminality is based on racism,” explaining nonsensically that “criminality is punishing people for things that they have needed to do to survive or just the way that society has affected them with white supremacist BS.”
When confronted by Fox News’ Martha MacCallum about the idea of looting as “reparations,” another BLM organizer, Hawk Newsome, blamed white supremacy for looting saying “The problem with oppression and white supremacy is, white supremacy will have you criticizing the oppressed and worshiping the oppressors,” and then suggested the United States was a terrorist organization saying “OK, so when America goes and steals diamonds and oils, who’s calling us terrorists?”
Newsom has previously called for a “war on police,” and to “stop these government sanctioned murders by any means necessary.”
While BLM is actively looking to defund, and perhaps even physically harm America’s police, Antifa is on its 85th night of riots in Portland. The lawless rioters burned the famous Multnomah Building and chanted “no cops, no prisons, total abolition.”
Meanwhile, Democrats tacitly or even openly back this behavior. Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley recently called for “unrest in the streets,” saying “There needs to be unrest in the streets for as long as there’s unrest in our lives, and unfortunately, there’s plenty to go around.”
When given an opportunity to condemn the violence of Antifa and BLM, Democratic Senators instead chose to walk about of a committee meeting. Sen. Ted Cruz gave Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on the Constitution a chance to publicly condemn the violence, and instead, they fled the scene. Watch the video here:
