I am fed up with BLM movement of chaos. People will say “what about what they stand for and the reasons for it – principles?” I’ll say BS and hyperbole. Our perspective is Key.
Philippians tells us to think these things: whatever is noble, true, righteous, and honorable, to paraphrase. If you do, then one cannot help being offended by events we see daily.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”– ASV
The Black Lives Matter and its protests are an anathema to all that advice. To the contrary, we’ve concentrated on the exact opposite. People can become desensitized to violence and chaos because of the volume of events and sensational media reports at lightning speed. Thus, like John Kerry called terrorist shootings “daily fare.”
And all the explanations about it do not really help.
What we’ve been hearing for years and seen in these protests has bugged me. The tactics of these groups is that of radical thugs.
However, just to take their main chant as an example. I have a few ideas. That is their famous “No justice no peace”. Turn that around and suppose we say “no peace no justice?” How about that?
How can you have justice when there is no peace? Or you don’t have justice in a war zone, which is what they are turning it into. Random killing of cops in NY or Texas in reaction to a shooting in Missouri, Baton Rouge or Michigan doesn’t matter where. Cops seem to be a target anywhere because of those stories. Is that fair?
Then, of course, Obama comes out to not calm the emotions and bitterness but stoke it. He does it every time so it is not by accident. Trayvon Martin he personalized saying it could be his son. As a response to Islamic radicalism and terrorism he blames Crusades and talks about Jim Crow. There did not have to be even a remote connection, but he does it. Then he goes on to pander to and stoke the BLM movement or the Islamic radical movement. Not that he does nothing about these things but he actually extorts and politicizes them.
See, the result is that BLM and the readical left do not want peace, yet we are supposed to want justice under these circumstances. There is chaos. They want us to demand justice when there is no chance or promise of peace. More chaos, yet they demand justice. What we are getting is anarchy or at best mob thuggery as a result.
