Posted on 10/05/2016 1:25:20 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Black Lives Matter gathered in front of the Cleveland police union headquarters Tuesday evening to protest the unions endorsement of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
There were reportedly dozens, and maybe over 100, protesters gathered outside of the Cleveland Police Patrolmens Association (CPPA), out of concern the endorsement would elevate mistrust among minority groups towards law enforcement.
The CPPA, which represents 1,450 officers and staff, overwhelmingly voted to endorse the Republican nominee Sept. 30, with Trump receiving 216 votes to Democratic nominee Hillary Clintons 68 votes.
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani visited the CPPA Tuesday, where he thanked the officers for their work during the Republican National convention, which was held in Cleveland in July.
It appears that Cleveland citizens are in the middle of a Hollywood good cop/ bad cop routine, with the Citys Mayor, City Council, Law Director, and the Cleveland Division of Police (CDP) on one side and the CPPA on the other side, Black Lives Matter said after the endorsement.
Before the vote, the president of the local Black Shield Association (BSA), an organization set up to represent the interests of black police officers, voiced her opposition of endorsing a candidate, citing concerns of community relations.
It would just be not a good thing for us to be involved in endorsing anyone right at this particular time, Lynn Hampton, president of the BSA, said in a statement. Hampton predicted that it, would give wind and give fuel to people who already mistrust the police department.
The Cleveland NAACP has also not only blasted the union for publicly endorsing Trump, but criticized minority police officers for failing to participate in the vote, and accused black and Hispanic officers of being complicit in this tragedy and of failing their community.
By most estimates, there are over 500 Black and Hispanic officers who were eligible to vote on this issue. Where was your support for Lynn Hampton and the other 67 brave officers who voted No? the NAACP statement read.
Its hypocritical for the protesters to criticize his right of free speech while exercising their own, Steve Loomis, president of the CPPA said Tuesday evening, according to WKSU.
Loomis has previously met with Trump on numerous occasion, participating in a roundtable discussion with the Republican nominee and other union leaders in early September. He also appeared at a Trump rally in Akron during an August visit.
That will help earn him more votes
In fact, I hope they strongly come out and say they support HilLIARy
'Rev' is for revolutionary.
'Com' is for communist.
Revcom.us bills itself as "the voice of the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA." The explicit objective is to overthrow our constitutional republic and replace it with an oligarchical collectivist dictatorship along the lines of North Korea and the Soviet Union.
Why would advocates of a communist police state agitate against the police? Because as leftists used to admit openly, the issue is never the issue.. This isn't about the police, any more than it is about blacks. It is about destabilizing the system so as to create opportunities to weaken it and eventually overthrow it.
That's what community organizing boils down to. These people have taken over the executive branch of the federal government; why would they stop there?
The next hill they take will be federal control of local police. After that, things will start to get scary.
From the website of the Revolutionary Communist Party (revcom.us):
"Create Public Opinion, Seize Power: We are preparing minds and organizing forces for the time when there is a major crack in the system, whenever it comes and wherever it comes from: an opening that makes it possible to bring the future Revolutionary Army of the Proletariat (R.A.P.) into the field and wage a revolutionary armed struggle that actually has a chance of winning.
And we have said that building our party itself is the most important part of organizing forces for revolution. This is true now, and it is true looking forward to the creation of that future R.A.P. and the waging of that armed struggle.":
The 1992 LA/Rodney King riots were instigated by the Revolutionary Communist Party...
From David Horowitz's FrontpageMag.com /DiscoverTheNetworks.org:
"Throughout its history, one of RCP's [Revolutionary Communist Party] principal objectives has been to foment civil unrest in the United States. The most notable example of such efforts occurred on April 29, 1992, when RCP members looted and trashed the downtown and government districts of Los Angeles, triggering the infamous Rodney King riots. During the days immediately preceding the violence, RCP -- which maintained close ties to the L.A. gangs known as the Crips and the Bloods -- had circulated throughout South Central Los Angeles a leaflet featuring a statement by RCP National Spokesman Carl Dix, titled 'It's Right To Rebel' -- a quote popularized by Mao Zedong.
Encouraged by Dix, RCP activists helped lead the riots that would leave 58 people dead, more than 2,300 people injured, some 5,300 buildings burned, and $1 billion in property damaged or destroyed. On the ten-year anniversary of the rioting, RCP member Joseph Veale fondly recalled the violence as 'the most beautiful, the most heroic civil action in the history of the United States.'"
