Reacting to news of Baltimore Lt. Brian Rice’s acquittal in the Freddie Gray case, Rush Limbaugh coined the best description of Black Lives Matter yet, bar none.
Instead of “Black Lives Matter,” Limbaugh concluded that it should be “Black Lies Murder.”
According to Limbaugh, the recent violence against police officers came from “a lie that was knowingly spread, a lie whose flames were knowingly fanned by no less than Barack Obama.”
The “big” lie, the one that “has spread” and become “part of the information packet for Black Lives Matter?”
Ferguson’s “Hands up don’t shoot.”
Speaking of Black Lies, there are plenty more. In a BPR post that has since gone viral, African-American Florida police officer Jay Stalien lays several out and demolishes them piece by piece:
Complaint: Police always targeting us, they always messing with the black man.
Fact: A city where the majority of citizens are black (Baltimore for example) …will ALWAYS have a higher rate of black people getting arrested, it will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting stopped, and will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks getting killed, and the reason why is because a city with those characteristics will ALWAYS have a higher rate of blacks committing crime. The statistics will follow the same trend for Asians if you go to China, for Hispanics if you go to Puerto Rico, for whites if you go to Russia, and the list goes on. It’s called Demographics
Complaint: More black people get arrested than white boys.
Fact: Black People commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime. Data from the FBI shows that Nationwide, Blacks committed 5,173 homicides in 2014, whites committed 4,367. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined. Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.
Complaint: Blacks are the only ones getting killed by police, or they are killed more.
Fact: As of July 2016, the breakdown of the number of US Citizens killed by Police this year is, 238 White people killed, 123 Black people killed, 79 Hispanics, 69 other/or unknown race.
Fact: Black people kill more other blacks than Police do, and there are only protest and outrage when a cop kills a black man. University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012. Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.
It’s well worth reading his viral message in full if you haven’t yet. Riveting post by black police officer confronts BLM with raw honesty and EVERY American needs to see it
The truth is, Rush definitely seems to be onto something!
