Black Lives Matter and the Mechanics of Conformity
Quillette ^ | September 17, 2020 | Matthew Blackwell

The death of George Floyd in May, circulated in a bystander’s excruciating video clip, reignited furious and sometimes violent protests demanding reforms to address police brutality against ethnic minorities. According to the Center for Police Equity’s 2016 report “The Science of Justice,” black Americans are disproportionately affected by the amount of force used against them by police, such as being tasered. Additional investigations have found that black suspects are more likely to be manhandled, pushed to the ground, handcuffed, threatened, or pushed against a wall during a police interaction than their white counterparts. Bias against the black community appears to extend in all kinds of directions, from the courtroom to the maternity ward, where black women are 10 times more likely than white women to have their newborn baby taken from them if they test positive for an illicit drug.

The apparently inequitable use of force against ethnic minorities, meanwhile, has unleashed a torrent of emotion and allegations against police departments across the United States in the wake of Floyd’s death, spurred on by celebrities and activists alike. Actress Julianne Moore and actor Aaron Paul joined other celebrities in a short film made in conjunction with the NAACP to protest “systemic bias.” Moore beseeches viewers to understand that, “Black people are being slaughtered in the streets, killed in their own homes,” to which, Paul adds: “Killer cops must be prosecuted, they are murderers. We can turn the tide, it’s time to take responsibility.”

Good analysis of how information is accurately analyzed or not, or misused deliberately.

Street punks, BLM, Antifa, misc, are drunk on their own poisons of drugs, a search for relevancy, a search for companionship/group identity, or a pathological search for power, authoritarian, totalitarian, Marxist/communist, fascist, racist, or ethnic/religious.

The BLM leaders are open Marxists. Antifa is both fascist because of its German origins, and Marxist, because of its anti-capitalism ideology. OK, I’ll throw in a few psycho-nihilists to sweeten the poisoned pot of revolution.

Some of these groups, leaders and members make Holocaust-deniers sound like amateurs, and I say that as a member of a family whose European members were shot, worked to death, or gassed in Auschwitz.

I see no difference between the Holocaust deniers (Nazi supporters) and the Marxists genocide deniers of what Mao, Ho, Castro/Che, Lenin/Stalin/Trotsky, the Kim Genocidal Clan of No. Korea, or the Marxist leaders of Angola, Rhodesia/Zimbabwe, Ethiopia and Eritrea, etc. have done t kill over 100,000,000 people in the “name of the people”.

In other words, if our street thugs cannot be convicted and jailed, treated for mental illnesses and drug addiction, or their uncureable psychotic/pathological condition, they should be locked up for life, or it they committed murder, executed.

You don’t let a malaria mosquito, the Ebola Virus, the Wuhan Virus, or any other life-destroying pathogen live and have tea with. You contain or exterminate them as best you can.

The American Marxist haters have succeeded beyond their wildest dreams in corrupting, perverting, and converting once sane American youth into the “New Marxist/Racist Virus”.

It mut be stopped in the schools, the media and in the street, By Any Means Necessary and available, legal or extralegal

Otherwise, you will have a Cuomo/DeBlasio “kill off the old (patriots)” strategy on a national scale and scope.

Police use more force against suspects who are stronger and resist more forcefully.

For the schools to be useful to Liberty the teachers’ colleges have to be dismantled and universities must lose ALL federal funding including military science-ALL Federal funding. Public schools must be totally separated from federal connection and funding also, even ROTC
