I don’t watch talking head shows, so I missed this. Chances are if you were aware of Jason Whitlock’s comments at all, it probably was the money quote. He had much more to say.
The Ku Klux Klan was founded on Christmas Eve 1865 by Confederate soldiers dedicated to undermining the racial progress sparked by the Civil War and Emancipation Proclamation. “The KKK engaged in terrorist raids against African Americans and white Republicans at night, employing intimidation, destruction of property, assault, and murder to achieve its aims and influence upcoming elections,” according to History.com. Here’s a link to a summation of the KKK’s history.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa protests have primarily terrorized and destroyed property in black communities at night. BLM and Antifa have attempted to intimidate white Republicans. BLM protests have been violent and caused the assassination of law enforcement officers and other citizens. BLM is a cleverly marketed slogan that provides cover for extremists to undermine racial progress and bully American citizens to support Democrat politicians. It’s not a coincidence that BLM riots pick up during an election cycle and disappear after the votes have been counted.
My analogy is not far fetched or hard to comprehend, particularly for the mainstream media. My analogy is far more substantive and accurate than pretending the events at the Capitol on January 6 were an armed insurrection analogous to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. BLM, founded by self-described trained Marxists, has a stated goal of disrupting Western Civilization traditions and values. Despite the sweet-sounding name, BLM acts as a racial divider — no different from the KKK.Jason Whitlock, Sports Journalist
Here’s an exercise for you. Go to the historical record and find an instance where a democrat, during reconstruction and its aftermath, condemned the KKK. Can’t do it can you? Now find a democrat, in the current times, to condemn BLM. Not gonna happen. democrats, still putting lipstick on a pig…. only the shade has changed.
