BlackLivesMatter Hypocrisy in Politics

By Douglas V. Gibbs

We are being told that Black Lives Matter, and we are shouted down when anyone mutters that All Lives Matter.  The screaming protesters claim to support the Democrats, and Hillary Clinton's campaign has pandered as much as possible to the BlackLivesMatter movement.  Today, Hillary spoke at an NAACP convention in Cincinnati.  Over 90% of black voters have supported Barack Obama.  Black Lives Matter belongs to the Democrat Party.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke says that the Obama administration is "fanning the flames" of racial discord (he said it again today on television), and the anti-police sentiment, and we've had "enough of the nonsense" of BlackLivesMatter.

Obama's anti-police narrative began not long after he took office, and is only now coming to fruition for the Democrats.  Remember when Obama jumped the gun and said that the "Cambridge Police acted stupidly" way back in 2009?

So, if Black Lives Matter, and the government needs to help the blacks against The Man, what has the Democrats done to assist blacks in America?

The liars of the Democrat Party, in an attempt to hammer home their anti-gun rhetoric in Congress, staged a sit-in on the floor of the House of Representatives.  26 of those Democrats are gun owners.

In democrat-run cities, the explosion of black on black violence is being ignored.

Based on the Obama administration’s own latest-available statistics by the most basic economic-performance metrics — with one key exception — black Americans are worse off now than when Obama was sworn in on January 20, 2009.

You can’t blame whitey for that.

Chaka Fattah is an 11-term Pennsylvania Democrat who was convicted in late June on 23 charges of racketeering, money laundering and fraud, along with four other co-defendants. His son was sentenced earlier this year to a five-year prison term after being found guilty of 22 counts of separate federal bank and tax fraud charges related to his misuse of business loans and federal education contracts to pay for designer clothes, massive bar tabs and luxury cars.

These are the people the blacks in America have been looking up to.

Need more?

Eddie Bernice Johnson: 12-term Democrat from Dallas, similarly helped steer thousands of dollars in Congressional Black Caucus Foundation college scholarships for four family members and two of her top aide’s children in violation of the nonprofit’s rules.

Maxine Waters: This 13-term Beltway swamp queen from California and past chair of the Congressional Black Caucus walked away with a slap on the wrist from the toothless House Ethics Committee in 2012 after being charged with multiple ethics violations related to her meddling in minority-owned OneUnited Bank.

The banks’ executives donated $12,500 to Mad Maxine’s congressional campaigns. Her husband, Sidney Williams, was an investor in one of the banks that merged into OneUnited. As stockholders, they profited handsomely from their relationship with the bank.

And vice versa. After Waters’ office personally intervened and lobbied the Treasury Department in 2008, the financial institution received $12 million in federal TARP bailout money — despite another government agency concluding that the bank operated “without effective underwriting standards” and engaged “in speculative investment practices.” Top bank executive Kevin Cohee squandered money on a company-financed Porsche and a Santa Monica, California, beachfront mansion. After the federal bailout of Fannie/Freddie, OneUnited’s stock in the government-sponsored enterprises plunged to a value estimated at less than $5 million. Only through Waters’ intervention was OneUnited able to secure an emergency meeting with the Treasury and its then-Secretary Henry Paulson.

Waters’ government cronyism earned her a “Most Corrupt member of Congress” designation from the left-wing Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

Then there’s Alcee Hastings, the 12-term Florida corruptocrat impeached while a federal judge in 1989 for making false statements and producing false documents in a 1983 criminal trial accusing him of seeking a $150,000 bribe. He went on to win a seat in Congress in 1992 and used his position to enrich his various lady friends, including paying one girlfriend-turned-congressional deputy district director more than half a million dollars in salary and another he calls a “staff assistant” to accompany on his endless junkets abroad.

Those three are just the start. There’s Texas’ Sheila Jackson Lee and the Medicare fraud racket involving a local hospital in her district; Greg Meeks and his $400,000 earmark for a fake health clinic in New York City and Caribbean resort jaunts underwritten by convicted financier Allen Stanford; and Wisconsin’s Gwen Moore and her lucrative friends and family. And, of course, the ethics violations, shady business deals and tax troubles from New York’s Charlie Rangel deserve their own encyclopedia.

The Black Lives Matter movement may think their leaders agree with them, but in truth, the corrupt Democrats believe that their power matters even more than any black life.

In reality, the Black Lives Matter agitators are simply tools being used by the Democrats, who will be tossed aside once the Democrats decide they don't need the black protesters anymore.
