I don't care how many times the media calls Hillary Clinton the Democrat presidential frontrunner, don't you believe it. If she were really running away with the Donk nomination, she would not still be prostrating herself before the extreme Left base of her elderly, lily-white party. She'd already be triangulating, tacking to the center, positioning herself for next year's general campaign as early as possible so as to prepare that campaign battlefield. Instead she's designating the four crown jewels of her candidacy as ObamaCare, gun confiscation, her vagina, and now, after sensibly keeping her distance from them for months, making herself the house cracker ho of the twenty-first century answer to the Ku Klux Klan, #BlackLivesMatter:
Expanding the federal government’s abilities to investigate police departments across the country would be a key part of Hillary Clinton’s approach to criminal justice reform if she were president, an aide told the Huffington Post on Friday.
[Mrs.] Clinton’s plan would include doubling funding for the Justice Department’s collaborative reform program that works with police departments to implement change, expanding the Civil Rights Division unit that investigates law enforcement agencies, and adding funds for training for officers on the federal, State and local level.
Continuing the unconstitutional federalization of local law enforcement that Barack Obama started - just what city, county, and State police departments around the country that are already under withering black racist/insurrectionist assault and petrified of actually enforcing the law for fear of winding up in witness protection program exile like Darren Wilson need.
And look how BLM's blatant hijacking of both Democrat campaigns has emboldened their brazenly lying, racist propaganda - either that, or they've started writing the future stump speeches of Weekend Bernie and the Empress:
“Every twenty-eight hours, a black person is murdered by police,” Black Lives Matter [extrem]ist Cherno Biko told Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly. “It feels like we’re in a war.”
If true, killer cops are rubbing out some 313 innocent, law-abiding blacks annually.
Rise Up October asserts that there are “over 1,000 people a year killed by police.”
Awful, simply awful - if it were true.
It is, however, roaring bullbleep:
From 2003 through 2012, law-enforcement officers killed an average of 429 people per year in “legal interventions.” These include a relatively small number of innocent people killed by cops and many more who died due to reasonable use of force…
Thanks to the Ferguson Effect, blistering anti-law-enforcement rhetoric and sometimes fatal attacks on police have made cops timid, if not terrified. The result? A murder explosion that, ironically, is killing the very black people whom Black Lives Matter claims to champion. Year to date, homicides are up 8.3% in New York, 19.2% in Chicago, 51.5% in St. Louis and 52.5% in Baltimore. [emphases added]
It would seem that black lives only matter when (1) they're taken by white cops and (2) they're politically useful to BLM and their Democrat slaves.
But note that number above: an annual average of 429 people killed total by police officers in "legal interventions. The African-American portion of that number, if proportional, would be around seventy per year, and the percentage of that number that were "unarmed" is sufficiently miniscule that we start to see why how isolated these flagrantly overhyped incidents really are. Which one would assume given that if there really was a veritable open hunting season on defenseless black youths by armies of bloodthirsty, racist cops, one would think we would have heard something about it. Which in turn underscores why each such rare instance is so shamelessly, racistly overhyped.
Now compare the above numbers to this one:
On average, 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between January 1st, 2009, and December 31st, 2012, according to the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports. Using FBI and CDC statistics, Professor Johnson calculates that 112 black men, on average, suffered both justified and unjustified police-involved deaths annually during this period.
This equals 2.5% of these 4,472 yearly deaths. For every black man — criminal or innocent — killed by a cop, forty black men were murdered by other black men. The, at most, 2.5% of the problem generates relentless rage. And, yet, it is rude-to-racist to mention 97.5% of the problem. [emphases added]
And that is why - I thought - Hillary Clinton was keeping her distance from #BLM to keep their racist stink off of her campaign. But so desperate has she become to overtake the authentic communist Bernie Sanders that she will now regurgitate their outright delusional fantasies of America having somehow reverted all the way back to the water cannons and exploding churches of the 1950s and 1960s under the two-term reign of the first half-black president. Right alongside flacking for ObamaCare, promising to take away all our guns, and running ads showing how well-waxed her bikini area is.
I'm not sure which has their work cut out for them more - Hillary trying to sell that electorally disastrous dog mess of a platform, bloggers like us having to field it, or Donald Trump having to hoist her dead weight fat ass across the finish line.
My dwindling money is on Trump, in case you were wondering.
