Progressive Agenda: An All-Out Assault On Facts, Truth + American Institutions

In May of 2016, BHO welcomed Black Lives Matter to the WH for an exclusive visit. Occupy Wall St and the Black Panthers must have been busy...WH Press Secretary Tweet (parody)
The NY Post reported today that NYC Mayor DeBlasio said of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement: "Black and Lives Matter is a force for good..."  I'm not making this up. He actually made that absurd ludicrous statement. No wonder, a once great city, is now plunging into progressive hell with this dummy in charge.

Nevertheless, many agree with his assessment of BLM even though almost every event and protest they lead results in violence---especially violence against police, the very same people who protect them at these protests. Just as disturbing, leadership from the White House is conspicuous by its absence.  Mr. Obama continues to distort the facts about the police and their alleged "racism."  This does not mean there are no racist cops but his facts are wrong.  In previous posts, I outlined a report from The Washington Post.  In short,  WaPo found there were 965 police shootings in 2015 resulting in death. Of those, 90 were unarmed and a majority were white.  In addition, unarmed blacks accounted for less than 4% of fatal police shootings.

This data was reinforced by a new study out of Harvard. It found "Cops are more likely to fire their weapons without having first been attacked when the suspects were white---and far less likely when they're black."  In other words, both studies found NO SYSTEMIC RACIAL BIAS.

But, as I stated in my earlier post, the truth and facts are just a casualty in the progressive war on all of America's institutions. Police are just one target. Others include, but are not limited to, the military, our Constitutional form of government, religious affiliation (unless it's Islam), education, the criminal justice system (being played out right now), the 2nd Amendment, tolerance, conservatives (e.g. The IRS scandal), American Exceptionalism and Free Speech (as we're witnessing on our nation's campuses today).

If fake, phony and frauds really cared about what happens to blacks, they would be marching and protesting in Detroit, Chicago, LA and other American cities where blacks are murdering one another at alarming rates.

By designating BLM as a "force for good," progressives prove they have absolutely no political courage---none.  And that includes the man sitting in the Oval Office today.
