Do Black Lives Matter and Islamic Radicals Have the Same Bosses?
by Al Benson Jr.
There was all manner of "information" spread across the Internet in recent days about a big Black Lives Matter protest that those people were going to hold at the Mall of America in Minneapolis over Christmas weekend. They were going to force shoppers to endure their leftist propaganda in order to finish their shopping and I guess they figured on intimidating many of the businesses there, quite possibly to wring some sort of concessions out of them now or later. However, their balloon burst before they quite got it all the way blown up.
Seems that lots of the business owners there didn't feel they wanted to put up with all that hassle and so they just shut down early and went home, and lots of police showed up and what was supposed to be a major propaganda event with about 3,000 protesters ended up with a fizzled-out group of about 600 who never really got to protest. Poor babies! I just bet it ruined their whole weekend!
Then I saw a brief article on http://conservativevideos.com where a Black Lives Matter activist was interviewed by Carol Costello of CNN (of all places). The article observed: "A Black Lives Matter activist was unable to provide any 'stats' to back up her claims about 'rampant' Islamophobia and discrimination against black people at US airports, offering up her 'experiences' instead. When questioned by CNN's Carol Costello about the Black Lives Matter movement's decision to disrupt a Minneapolis airport on Wednesday amid terror concerns, Asha Long replied with a point that didn't seem to answer the question." She spouted: "Safety for black lives is an illusion, especially at the airports. As you know...Islamophobia is rampant, especially in the airports. So many people are taken off their flights and harassed." Costello pressed her for evidence of this. Guess what? She didn't have any! Everybody is just supposed to take her word that this is how it is. Who needs evidence if someone black makes an accusation. You just automatically believe it and that's it! She rambled on about how she saw her Muslim counterparts being daily harassed.
Folks, I've flown out of Minneapolis and there were lots of Muslims there waiting to fly out. From all that I could see, they got through the lines and all the TSA gobbledygook lots quicker than most white folks did. I supposed they felt "discriminated" against because they weren't just allowed to board the planes with none of the harassment that the rest of us have to put up with. Comrade Long felt it was a great idea to disrupt a major airport at a time when heightened security measures were in place.
Her large concern of the "harassment" of her "Muslim counterparts" almost makes you wonder if the same hand is guiding the Black Lives Matter group and some of the Muslim groups that are raising such a fuss in this country. You don't suppose that there is any possibility that many of these groups are nothing more than puppets in the hands of some group behind the scenes who uses them to further its agenda do you? Naw, that could never happen in America--could it? If that's your attitude I've got a lovely bridge in the Arizona desert I'd love to sell you. Make me an offer!
If someone has the time, it would be interesting if they did some homework and started checking out how the demands of many of these present radical groups compare with the demands of leftist radical groups in the last 100 years. Then put the two lists side by side and see how many similarities you can find. I'm sure it would be an enlightening intellectual exercise. And for those who still believe that old saw about "communism being dead" it might be somewhat of a shock.
