            by Jon Miltimore  The organization Black Lives Matter has removed from its website a page that included language condemning America’s “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.” The page, titled “What We Believe,” included various public policy positions unrelated to police brutality and police reform. The Washington Examiner discovered on Monday the page had been removed. “Page Not Found. Sorry, but the page you were trying to view does not exist,” the page now reads. The Wayback Machine archived the page, however, and it contains a lengthy description of the organization’s tenets and objectives. Among the views expressed is a desire to “disrupt” the traditional family structure. “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and...
    Savannah Rychcik September 25, 2020 0 Comments President Donald Trump is blaming the Black Lives Matter movement for violence associated with some protests calling for the end to racial injustice. During a campaign event to appeal to Black voters, Trump railed against the movement and claimed it is doing more harm than good. “Many of those who are spreading violence in our cities are supporters of an organization called Black Lives Matter or BLM,” Trump said. He added, “It’s hurting the Black community. This is an unusual name for an organization whose ideology and tactics are right now destroying many Black lives.” Trump claimed the goal of the Black Lives Matter movement is to “achieve the destruction...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) praised the “brilliance” of the Black Lives Matter movement and its founders in a conversation with the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) on Friday. Harris, who is Joe Biden’s running mate on the Democratic Party presidential ticket, was asked specifically to respond to claims that Black Lives Matter is a “terrorist” organization, which the interviewer attributed to President Donald Trump.

His new black empowement policy, released on Friday, names the Ku Klux Klan and Antifa as terrorist organizations.)

    Its agenda is plain for all to see: cop-killing With another two police officers shot at the Black Lives Matter riot in Louisville on Wednesday, it’s time to lift the veil on the whole movement: It’s a haven for unrepentant cop-killers. These aren’t isolated incidents. It has been fewer than two weeks since supposedly “peaceful” BLM radicals chanted, “We hope they die,” while blocking the entrance to a hospital where two Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies were undergoing life-saving surgery. An assailant had walked up to their patrol vehicle and opened fire from point-blank range without provocation. Those chilling words echo the rhetoric we hear from BLM founders and members, who make clear that a prime objective of BLM is...

    Horrifying footage shows the moment a driver plowed through a group of Black Lives Matter protesters during unrest in Denver, Colorado, following the Kentucky grand jury's decision to not indict two police officers with Breonna Taylor's death. Taylor, a 26-year-old EMT, was shot dead on March 13 when police officers entered her home.  On Wednesday afternoon, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said the jury declined to bring any charges against two of the three policemen who fired into Taylor's apartment because their actions were found to have been justified under Kentucky law as they returned fire after Taylor's boyfriend shot at them, wounding one. Police fired a total of 32 shots after the one round from Taylor's boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, who...

    The Mona Shores, Michigan, school board has rescinded its support for the Black Lives Matter movement after a resolution backing it drew the ire of many in the community. “The intent of the [Black Lives Matter] resolution was to unify, and it was becoming divisive instead,” Superintendent Bill O’Brien told MLive Tuesday after recommending the resolution be suspended. “This is not, and must not, be an issue of politics. It is an issue of human rights, including equality, inclusion, acceptance, and equity.” O’Brien said the school district will form a committee to prepare recommendations concerning race and inclusiveness that the “entire community can get behind,” the MLive report said. As Breitbart News reported, in June the Mona Shores Public Schools...

    MSNBC host Joy Reid blasted the lack of criminal charges against the Louisville police officers involved in the death of Breonna Taylor. One of the three police officers involved in the Kentucky drug operation that led to Taylor's death in March 2020 was indicted Wednesday on criminal charges. Officer Brett Hankison, who was fired in June, was indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree for firing into a neighboring apartment, a Jefferson County grand jury decided Wednesday. Those charges are not related to Taylor's death. Neither the grand jury nor the presiding judge elaborated on the charges. During MSNBC's coverage of the high-profile case, Reid began by saying the charges brought against the officers "entirely delete the murder" and "ignore the...

Reid said, “Count one regarded wanton endangerment in the domicile of the home of somebody whose initials are CD. I heard the initial CE. I heard the initial ZF. What I don’t think I heard is the initial BT, which is Breonna Taylor. We should check that and double-check that.

    MSNBC’s Joy Reid slammed the charges raised against former Louisville police officer Brett Hankison by arguing they minimize the death of Breonna Taylor. Reid joined Ari Melber on Wednesday to react to the news that Hankinson has been indicted for three counts of wanton endangerment in connection with the case. After Melber noted that wanton endangerment is a “lesser” type of charge that doesn’t account for homicide, Reid said Taylor’s name didn’t appear anywhere in Hankinson’s charging documents, meaning his indictments stem from the threat his recklessness posed to Taylor’s neighbors. It feels to me like these charges entirely delete the murder, entirely ignore the killing of Breonna Taylor, even if one of those three [charges] is about her…It...
