Black Lives Matter protesters were caught on camera during a recent protest in Seattle chanting, “Who do we protect? Black criminals.”
The clip shows BLM demonstrators repeating the mantra as they walk down a residential street.
Nobody can argue that the statement is founded in absolute truth.
George Floyd was a convicted criminal who once pointed a gun at a pregnant woman’s stomach during an armed robbery.
Michael Brown was killed after he charged Officer Darren Wilson and tried to grab his gun after robbing a convenience store.
Heavily armed sniper Micah Johnson set out to kill as many white officers as he could before murdering 5 Dallas police officers during a Black Lives Matter march.
Back in 2014, Black Lives Matter protesters were also caught on camera in New York chanting, “What do we want? Dead cops. When do want it? Now!”
As we highlighted earlier, Seattle BLM protesters also appear to believe that while protecting black criminals, part of their agenda is also to seize property belonging to white people.
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner has asked criminals to comply with lockdown orders and stop the crime.
Amid announcements discussing how to keep police and first responders safe during the coronavirus crisis, Mayor Turner said the best way to protect city employees is not to commit crime in the first place.
“For our police officers, the best way to help police officers: don’t commit a crime and then you won’t need us,” Turner, a Democrat, stated during a press briefing Monday.
The mayor continued his inane rant by pleading with criminals to “take a break.”
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said he thinks every U.S. citizen, even the convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, should be allowed to vote in American elections.
Sanders offered his stance at a CNN town hall Monday when asked whether he thought felons should be allowed to vote while they’re incarcerated, not just after their release.
He was pressed on whether it was appropriate to enfranchise sex offenders or someone convicted of a heinous crime like Tsarnaev, who with his brother carried out the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that left three dead and injured hundreds more.
“Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope,” Sanders said in response to a question about restoring felons’ voting rights.
A top aide to influential freshman New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has drawn attention this week for some money moves involving his political action committees.
It’s a potentially significant case, though some of the furor is overheated, according to Adav Noti, an attorney with the Campaign Legal Center, an ethics and campaign-finance watchdog.
“A consensus is probably coalescing around the idea that the underlying activity was weird — and hard to understand why they did it — but probably not unlawful,” Noti told MarketWatch. “I don’t think anybody can say with certainty, based on the record as it stands right now, one way or the other.”

BOSTON (AP) — House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday she’s confident Democrats will retake the House in next month’s midterm elections.
Pelosi, who stands to become speaker if her party captures the chamber, ticked off a legislative to-do list including lowering health care costs, spearheading a national infrastructure plan and pushing for changes to campaign finance laws.
The California Democrat said she wasn’t worried about Democrats campaigning for the House in part by opposing her as speaker, telling candidates: “Do whatever you have to do, just win, baby.”
She also said she hopes to work with Trump on issues where there is common ground between Democrats and the Republican administration, including creating a national infrastructure plan she said could help raise paychecks while helping build mass transit, schools, housing, broadband access and renewable energy projects.
