The Black Lives Matter protesters advocated for violence against police officers at the Minnesota State Fair on Saturday, just one day after a sheriff in Houston, Texas was murdered by a black man. The group chanted, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.”
GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson didn’t react to the recent video of the chant, which was posted on Twitter, but his spokesperson Deana Bass directed Breitbart News to an op-ed Carson wrote last Monday addressing the Black Lives Matter protesters and calling attention to issues plaguing the black community, stressing that the problems weren’t caused by unjust treatment from police.
“The ‘BlackLivesMatter’ movement is focused on the wrong targets, to the detriment of blacks who would like to see real change,” Carson began.
Of course, the protesters are right that racial policing issues exist and some rotten policemen took actions that killed innocent people. Those actions were inexcusable and they should be prosecuted to deter such acts in the future.
But unjust treatment from police did not fill our inner cities with people who face growing hopelessness. Young men and women can’t find jobs. Parents don’t have the skills to compete in a modern job market…
Hasselbeck: Why Hasn’t Black Lives Matter Been Classified as a Hate Group?
31 Aug 2015 by Pam Key
Monday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends”, in light of the recent targeting of law enforcement officers including this weekends murder of Texas deputy Darren Goforth, co-host Elizabeth Hasselbeck asked National Review’s Kevin Jackson why the Black Lives Matter movement is not classified as a hate group.
Hasselbeck asked, “Kevin, why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified yet as a hate group? I mean, how much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?”
Jackson answered, “Well they should do it, but unfortunately it’s being financed by the leftists. Ironically it’s people who have nothing, really no concern at all about black lives. People like George Soros.”

Black Marine: ‘Black Lives Matter movement only promotes racism’
“I’m promoting this ‘All Lives Matter’ movement,” activist says
August 31, 2015 by Adan Salazar
Marine corps veteran Michael Whaley has a powerful message condemning followers of the Black Lives Matter movement who hate white people and police.
The former marine, who has made several previous videos denouncing the George Soros-funded Black Lives Matter movement, says “all lives matter,” even the life of Officer Darren Goforth, who was shot by a black man in Dallas, Texas, Friday.
“That police officer [Darren Goforth] that got killed by that black man because that black man listened to what you all were saying about going out and killing white people. That police officer’s life mattered,” Whaley says.
Whaley, 27, claims he had previously attempted to post his message to Facebook, where it was deleted.
“Facebook is trying to silence me cause I speak too much truth, but that’s OK though Facebook I still love y’all,” he says.
The activist also takes issue with black detractors who call him names like “Uncle Tom” and “house nigger,” which he shrugs off as minor insults.
“I had drill instructors in boot camp that had better insults than y’all,” Whaley says. “The reason I don’t have a lot of black supporters — I’m going to tell you the God’s honest truth. The reason why I don’t have a lot of black supporters is because black people can’t accept the truth about themselves. Black people admitting to the truth is like them snitching on themselves, and black people have this no snitching rule.”
Whaley told Biz Pac Review he’s taken up promoting the “All lives matter” campaign in dedication to his mother and the people he met while in the Marine Corps, “each of whom taught him to be color blind and love people for who they are.”
Whaley’s is one of a growing chorus of black voices helping fight back against the radical, and increasingly violent Black Lives Matter movement, which is losing support by the day.
A similar rant went viral earlier this month in which a black mother pointed out that the Black Lives Matter movement was nowhere to be found following the drive-by shooting death of a 9-year-old girl in Ferguson.
“Are you fucking kidding me? Police brutality?” Peggy Hubbard asked Black Lives Matter supporters. “How about black brutality. You black people, my black people, you are the fu…g most violent motherfuckers I have ever seen in my life.”
A Rasmussen poll conducted last month found that 64% of African-Americans prefer the term “all lives matter” over “black lives matter,” indicating the movement is losing favorability with many black Americans.
