This from NHPR’s “energy and environment reporter”:
Annie has the mind of a child. A child who has been brainwashed by the Left.
The Left claims that saying All Lives Matter “delegitimizes” Black Lives Matter. Actually, all one would need to do to delegitimize Back Lives Matter, the organization … as opposed to the principle that the lives of Black people matter as much as the lives of anyone else … is to do a minimal amount of research into Black Lives Matter, the organization.
From a 2016 article from NBC, Black Lives Matter’s “platform”:
##5-6 represent Black separatism … the so-called “autonomous zones” or “occupied zones” we have seen in Seattle and seen attempted in other cities. #4 is Marxism. #3 is defunding the police. #2 speaks for itself. #1 is pure propaganda – there is no war on Black people.
The problem I and others have with saying “Black Lives Matter” is that it represents an endorsement of Black Lives Matter the organization. The problem the Left really has with saying “All Lives Matter” is that it endorses the principle that the lives of Blacks matter as much as the lives of anyone else, without also endorsing the goals of Black Lives Matter.
The only “can of worms” Dover would be opening by using the slogan “All Lives Matter” is in the pea-brains of people like Annie, who have been totally brainwashed by the Left. Sadly, there are many, many of them.
