Dear BLM…

 

Dear Black Lives Matter,

I’d like to be able to take you seriously, but I can’t, and I won’t be able to until you make some changes to the things you say and do.

First, you have to be willing to talk honestly about violence and how it impacts black Americans. You and I agree that it’s a tragedy and a crisis but beyond that, we have two very different ideas about what’s going on. We need to be able to talk about the lives of all black Americans, not just the tiny minority killed by unjust police actions. We need to be honest, but you’re cherry-picking offenses in order to spin a narrative. That has to stop.

Secondly, you’ve got to drop all the revolutionary baggage. Your name says “black lives matter,” but your platform is “radical progressive transformation of America,” and I’m not buying into that. I like free-market capitalism, I like free and fair elections, I like being free to reject cultural junk I don’t believe in like the “trans” movement and other progressive nonsense. I like private-sector health care. I don’t want to defund the police. I don’t buy the climate alarmism agenda. I oppose forced confessions of any sort and I won’t be bullied into making one. This is all stuff you’re being radical about, and it doesn’t work for me.

Guaranteeing that black Americans have the same rights and opportunities as other Americans is a worthwhile and noble goal. It doesn’t require transforming my country into some other country, and if that’s what you demand then you’ll get nothing but contempt and resistance from me.

Let’s talk about the lives of black Americans, and how they can be made better without tearing our country apart. That’s an honest discussion we can have.

But right now you’re a radical progressive movement that’s exploiting a lie about police violence to foment anger and create chaos. You don’t deserve my support, nor the support of anyone who understands and loves our country.

Sincerely,
Hank

    BLM, and their white woke allies, don’t need your support, in fact they don’t want it.  They already have the power to make you lose your livelihood and destroy your property with impunity and to deprive your children of educational and job opportunities.  They already have the support of media, academia, most corporations, and the Democratic Party.  They need to have somebody left they can identify as the enemy.  You’re it.

    There’s little reason to believe that the organization ‘Black Lives Matter’ agrees with this. The very suggestion that local police forces in America are responsible for any significant percentage of violent deaths of black individuals is preposterous. That there is enough mishandling of encounters by black individuals with police to merit attention and action is a valid point.

    How can the information be successfully disseminated that BLM opposes the “nuclear family”?  I know that there’s no convincing those on the left who run around with hands cupped over their ears going “NAAAAAAAAH.”  But I’m betting that there are a ton of people who could be influenced if they could be persuaded to look behind the “saving black lives” narrative to some other talking points that BLM endorses.

    Your points are meaningless to Black Lives Matter itself. It is almost certain that hiding a radical agenda in a wrapping of innocuous words is intentional. It is standard operating procedure for leftists.

    But . . .  the points are useful to explain to your poorly informed neighbor / friend / pastor / aunt / etc. why you oppose Black Lives Matter, and why they should too. Black Lives Matter isn’t about the lives of blacks, and especially not black men and children.

    All,

    In case it isn’t obvious, of course this isn’t intended to reach the true believers of BLM. They aren’t an audience worth reaching: everything I think is good they despise, and the opposite is largely true. It’s intended to reach and persuade people who live under the mistaken belief that BLM is something other than a radical anti-American progressive Trojan horse. They’re the ones who need to hear the conservative case, because they agree with conservatives values. They just don’t know that BLM is antithetical to what most Americans hold dear.

    So don’t bother pointing out that such a letter would fall on deaf ears at BLM.

    Unfortunately, there is an awful lot of truth in this assessment of the situation. In fact, it is completely true at this moment of mass hysteria. And, in reality, it is a much bigger threat to the country than any issues currently facing blacks in America (either the reality of widespread fatherlessness and a victimhood mentality and the pathologies arising therefrom or the false narrative of eternal black victimization at the hands of evil whites as put forth by BLM and our corrupt media and almost everybody else on the Left) for it goes against the core of what America is about – freedom of each one of us to believe and say whatever to be true and to be judged as individuals rather than being judged and treated based on group rights (race, sex and the rest) and coerced thought control as exemplified by the whole SJW/woke ideology that has been the rule on college campuses for quite some time and is now spreading into society as whole. This is what must be defeated, but I’m at a loss as to how to go about it.

    “Those who are not true believes” is another way of saying “most Americans.” I think the answer has to include more people speaking out. The Commentary editors’ letter and the Hillsdale College statement were both excellent, but they reach a mostly conservative audience already. What is needed is regular people — people like us — talking to other regular people. Social media is one way to do it. Politely saying discomfiting things when out in public is another.

    People have to overcome the false sense of peer pressure that the media make seem real.

    You also have to get past the radical feminists who don’t want any nuclear family, so would never ever try to protect black women and encourage black monogamous marriages.

    My sense is that our ability to communicate en masse with ‘those who are not true believers’ or, in others words, those who are or would be receptive to the views we are talking about here, is now stifled by an almost singular viewpoint delivered by the media, to include what are termed social media platforms. This process includes efforts by this same media to distort or nullify any opposition message that slips through. It is a formidable obstacle.

    Only in their Marxist narrative.

    Just for the sake of comparison. How do these rates compare to some of our wars? Let’s pick one high intensity war and one low intensity war.

    First, the high intensity war – Korea – the US fought the Korean War for 3 years, 1 month and suffered 36,516 deaths and another 92,134 wounded. That works out to 32 deaths and 82 wounded Americans per day of the war.

    Now, a low intensity war – the Iraq War from 2003-2011. The US suffered 4,500 deaths and another 32,000 wounded during that war which works out to 2 deaths and 10 wounded per day.

    For Chicago – the 3 day weekend of June 19-21 saw 14 deaths and another 97 wounded or 5 deaths and 10 wounded per day. So, the rate of bloodletting is still significantly less than a high intensity conflict such as the Korean War, but about equal to a low intensity war such as the 2nd Iraq War. And, as noted, this is a non-issue for BLM and also their white woke allies, the national media (I’m pretty sure they didn’t mention it on any national news shows) and Democrats in elected office. It is a non-issue to them based on their own criteria – According to BLM and the rest, if you don’t protest a murder or death you don’t care about – “silence is violence.” To hell with them.

    I’m not going to concede that talking point to BLM or anyone else.

    The myth that Black Americans are somehow systematically mistreated by the police or White people in general is just that a myth.

    The stories that have gathered national attention like Brown or Floyd were either misrepresented or so rare as to be on the order of man bites dog  stories.

    Black Americans have more arrests and contact with the police per capita because they commit more crimes per capita.

    They are far more dangerous to the police than vice  versa.

    They are the perpetrators not the victims of the vast majority of interracial crime.

    I’m sick of the lies and refusal to address the real problem, which is that Black Americans have a problem with a large section of their population being out of control when it comes to their community and civilized behavior.

    The Color of Crime

    The evidence suggests that if there is police racial bias in arrests it is negligible. Victim and witness surveys show that police arrest violent criminals in close proportion to the rates at which criminals of different races commit violent crimes.

    There are dramatic race differences in crime rates. Asians have the lowest rates, followed by whites, and then Hispanics. Blacks have notably high crime rates. This pattern holds true for virtually all crime categories and for virtually all age groups.

    In 2013, a black was six times more likely than a non-black to commit murder, and 12 times more likely to murder someone of another race than to be murdered by someone of another race.

    In 2013, of the approximately 660,000 crimes of interracial violence that involved blacks and whites, blacks were the perpetrators 85 percent of the time. This meant a black person was 27 times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa. A Hispanic was eight times more likely to attack a white person than vice versa.

    In 2014 in New York City, a black was 31 times more likely than a white to be arrested for murder, and a Hispanic was 12.4 times more likely. For the crime of “shooting” — defined as firing a bullet that hits someone — a black was 98.4 times more likely than a white to be arrested, and a Hispanic was 23.6 times more likely.

    If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent.

    In an all-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent. In 2015, a black person was 2.45 times more likely than a white person to be shot and killed by the police. A Hispanic person was 1.21 times more likely. These figures are well within what would be expected given race differences in crime rates and likelihood to resist arrest.

    In 2015, police killings of blacks accounted for approximately 4 percent of homicides of blacks. Police killings of unarmed blacks accounted for approximately 0.6 percent of homicides of blacks. The overwhelming majority of black homicide victims (93 percent from 1980 to 2008) were killed by blacks.

    Both violent and non-violent crime has been declining in the United States since a high in 1993. 2015 saw a disturbing rise in murder in major American cities that some observers associated with “depolicing” in response to intense media and public scrutiny of police activity.

    Violent Crime

    Blacks 24.7/100k   7x higher violent crime rate

    White    3.4/100k

    In 2012, blacks committed 560,600 acts of violence against whites, and whites committed 99,403 acts of violence against blacks, according to data from the National Crime Victimization Survey provided to the author:

    Blacks 13.2% of the population Commit 52.2% of murders, homicides

    Blacks  6.8 times more likely to commit Murder

    93% of Blacks killed by Black offender.

    2013  409 Whites murdered by Blacks

              189  Blacks murdered by Whites

    Blacks 6X more likely to commit murder.

                12X more likely to murder person of different race.

    Of 660K interracial (B&W) crimes, Blacks were the perps

    In 85%.   27X more likely to attack then Whites.

    Black Lives really don’t matter to the Progressive Left.

    But, cruelly destroying Black Lives and exploiting that misery the Progressive Left actually created does.

    According to some economists the latest BLM rioting in the 16 major urban Metro Areas that needed to have the National Guard called in, will lose something like 2 million jobs from that rioting.  Businesses will close forever, and many of the ones not bankrupted will move to safer locales like the whiter suburbs.  A wholly disproportionate percentage of those jobs lost were once held by People of Color.  Great Job, AnitFa! Way to end Systemic Racism!

    Something like well over 40 million Americans have lost their jobs to the overwrought, heavy handed lockdowns of Urban areas illegally imposed by Democratic Governors and Mayors, with likely over 40% of those jobs lost permanently.  Again a highly disproportionate percentage of those jobs lost will be lower wage jobs held by People of Color. 

    The Progressive Left’s near total control of our Federal Health Care system has led to arguably the most abysmal response to the COVID-19 pandemic  in the world with America enduring  119,100 deaths so far of the 468,000 roughly total deaths worldwide- over 25% of the deaths in a country with the most advanced health system in the world and only 4.3% of the population. South Korea on the other hand, which has used HCQ extensively to fight the disease officially since February 13th, a drug our Federal Bureaucracy has fought against tooth and nail,  has had only 280 deaths total,  1/70th the total number of our deaths per capita since the beginning  and 1/325 th of the deaths from the disease since April 21st when the FDA recommended against the use of HCQ. Again, a very high disproportionate percentage of those deaths in America were to black people. We are talking about tens of ht

    But then, like in my state of California and followed by other Blue States, since 1975 when then newly elected Governor Jerry Brown imposed his “era of limits”which has systematically made housing more much expensive, destroyed millions of jobs,  and reduced wages  all of which were felt by minorities much more than other racial groups.

    I agree with a lot of your comment, and also agree that the federal government has handled the situation poorly. However, we have not had the poorest outcome on a deaths per capita basis, even among advanced western democracies. And the greatest failures in America, failures which significant distort the record, are not federal but state and local failures, most notably in New York. Those were failures to govern competently that led directly to thousands of deaths; America’s statistical place in the world would be greatly improved if not for those localized failures.

    Government has failed us, but most of the failure was not at the federal level. That — and perhaps that alone — is reason to appreciate the federal response, in that the federal government could have chosen to, but did not, arrogate to itself powers it doesn’t possess and driven much more of the state and local response.

    Given that the vast majority of all these deaths are happening in cities with Democratic mayors and city councils, it seems the best thing BLM supporters can do to prevent this tragedy is to vote for Republicans.
