BLM 101, Volume 1,2,3,4

Black Lives Matter  101
by Jason Whitlock

I wrote a column explaining why I believe “boycotting” the NBA, the NFL and Major League Baseball because of their embrace of “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) would be ineffective in changing the behavior of the leagues and the athletes.

BLM, in my opinion, is immune to economic forces. The billionaires and countries bankrolling the nationwide anarchy are committed to offsetting the financial losses caused by BLM.

My alternative to boycotting the leagues is a holistic approach of educating the athletes on what they’re actually supporting. BLM is Marxist, anti-religion, anti-nuclear family and racially divisive.

As best I can, I’m going to write a daily piece highlighting the repugnant actions taking place under the Black Lives Matter umbrella. Via social media, I encourage you to copy the link to this series I’m calling “BLM 101” and send it to professional athletes.

Black Lives Matter is a clever slogan. It’s a tremendous beard for wicked actions. If you care about America and love sports, help me educate the athletes. The truth is liberating. The mainstream media deny Americans the truth. Let’s share it.

Here’s BLM 101, Volume 1:

The New York Post wrote about a white Portland man who was dragged from his car by a BLM mob, beaten and kicked unconscious. Click here for the link to the NY Post story.

Andy Ngo, an editor for The Post Millennial, posted video footage of the brutal assault on his Twitter feed.

One of them runs up and kicks him in the head, instantly knocking him out. There are no police.” Video by @FromKalen pic.twitter.com/x646QheCV0 — Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) August 17, 2020

Defenders of Billionaire Lies Marxist will say one incident and one person can’t be used to discredit an entire movement. Come back tomorrow and I’ll share more.

Please share the link to this story with a professional athlete. Do it politely, free of snark. Let the facts speak for themselves. Our goal isn’t to antagonize. Let’s educate. Keep the faith.

Here’s BLM 101, Volume 2:

Find your seats, boys and girls. It’s time for , my online class dedicated to educating athletes on the real actions and impact of the Black Lives Matter movement.

For those of you who missed the first day of school, here’s a link to some notes you can copy from Volume 1. Today’s lesson comes from Hugo, Minnesota, a tiny rural town 25 miles north of Minneapolis.

Saturday, John Thompson, a candidate for the Minnesota House of Representatives, led a Black Lives Matter rally outside the home of Bob Krull, the president of the Minneapolis Police Federation. Thompson is black. Krull is white. Most of the BLM protestors Thompson led were white.

A Minneapolis-based news site Alpha News captured video of Thompson leading a menacing, profanity-laced rally in Krull’s suburban neighborhood. Watch the embedded video below. It looks and feels like a race-reversed KKK-style rally.

John Thompson, who recently won his Primary for 67A in St. Paul, goes off and screams at neighborhood children, residents, and neighbors of Police Union Leader Bob Krull. “Fuck, Hugo Minnesota!”

An ABC news affiliate, KTSP, reported that Thompson beat an effigy of Krull’s wife while his fist-in-the-air white BLM followers beat an effigy of Krull.

Take a look at the picture of the BLM followers inside the KTSP story. If they opened their fist, it would look like a scene out of 1930s Germany.

This is all taking place in the name of Black Lives Matter, the Marxist-influenced movement that allegedly wants to end racism with racism and fascism.

For some reason, professional athletes and the sports leagues that employ them are ignoring or are unaware of the depraved acts taking place across America in the name of Black Lives Matter.

BLM 101 is dedicated to educating the athletes on what they’re truly supporting. They’re supporting bigotry and a movement that is hostile to all religions.

Please share this link with your favorite athlete via social media. Be polite when sharing. No snark. No condescending message. Just the facts. They speak for themselves.

OK, time for recess. OK, quiet down, boys and girls.

Here’s BLM 101, Volume 3:

As you know, BLM 101 is a class dedicated to educating professional athletes on the real agenda and impact of the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

Today’s lesson is a story from Chicago featuring Lesbian mayor Lori Lightfoot. The Chicago Tribune reported that Lightfoot, a supporter of BLM, ordered local police to prevent protestors from demonstrating in her neighborhood. On Thursday Lightfoot defended her ban.

“I think that residents of this city,” Lightfoot told local reporters, “understand the nature of the threats that we are receiving on a daily basis, on a daily basis, understand I have a right to make sure that my home is secure.” 

The Tribune wrote: “Lightfoot refused to elaborate on the specific threats, but said she receives them daily against herself, her wife and her home.”

Equality? That’s the word scrolled on the back of a lot of NBA jerseys. The BLM movement allegedly is about bringing equality to the masses. Does Lori Lightfoot sound equal to the citizens of Chicago? Or has she reserved a special level of treatment for herself and her family?

Are there families in Chicago that don’t deserve protection from the violent, peaceful protestors, looters and vandals circulating Chicago?

Black Lives Matter is a clever slogan. On the surface — as long as you don’t read the BLM website — the agenda of BLM is admirable. BLM is allegedly dedicated to ending systemic racism and making everyone equal. It’s a force as powerful as God.

The reality is BLM imposes inequality and creates racial division. Movements founded in Marxism, socialism and communism always empower a handful of elites and feed the masses hope packaged in slogans.

What we’re seeing in the NBA is the true agenda of BLM. Elite millionaire athletes running up and down basketball courts promoting hope with slogans on their jerseys. Equality!

Meanwhile, Lori Lightfoot, LeBron James and the others in their circle of political influence will use their power, privilege and wealth to keep BLM out of their neighborhoods.

Please share the link to today’s lesson with your favorite professional athlete. No snark. No condescending message. Let’s try to engage the athletes in a healthy debate about the real impact of BLM.

Here’s BLM 101, Volume 4:

BLM 101 is dedicated to educating professional athletes about the negative consequences of the Black Lives Matter movement. BLM 101 makes every effort to avoid snark and ridicule. Today that will be difficult.

OK, let’s head to the NBA Bubble at Disney World and check in with the NBA Police Review Board headed by internal affairs officer LeBron James. From his Florida hotel, Officer James is leading the investigation into the Kenosha, Wisconsin police-involved shooting of Jacob Blake.

Less than 24 hours after Kenosha police shot Blake seven times, James filed his initial report on the incident, tweeting:

“And y’all wonder why we say what we say about the police! Someone please tell me WTF is this?! Exactly another black man being targeted. This shit is so wrong and so sad! Feel so sorry for him, his family and our people! We want justice.”

After acquiring additional information while “moonlighting” as a small forward in a playoff game against the Portland Trail Blazers, Officer James held a press conference to discuss the shooting.

“I know people get tired of hearing me say it, but we are scared as black people in America,” James said. “Black men, black women, black kids, we are terrified.”

James later accused the police of lying. “If you’re sitting here and telling me that there was no way to ‘saydue’ (subdue) that gentleman or detain him or just before firing guns, then you’re sitting here lying to not only me, but you’re lying to every African American, every black person in the community,” James said.

I’m black. I’m not scared. I’m not terrified. Neither is LeBron James. He’s lying. He and the “political activists” controlling him want black people to immerse themselves in “fear.” Fear is a tool used to control people. If you comply with police instructions, there is virtually no chance of an American citizen being harmed by police.

“If you watch the video, there were multiple moments where if they wanted to, they could’ve tackled Blake,” Officer James said. “They could’ve grabbed him. You know? They could’ve done that. And why, why does it always have to get to a point where we see guns firing?”

It’s very difficult to investigate police shootings and play NBA playoff games. Officer James is clearly unaware of a second video that shows police on the opposite side of Blake’s car wrestling with Blake on the ground. Blake escapes the police, gets to his feet and walks to the driver’s side of his vehicle.

I’m sure someone on the “NBA Police Review Board” will show James the second video at some point.

“Quite frankly, it’s disgusting to have multiple cops around and not even thinking about using a Taser,” said Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma, one of James’ top police investigators. “And forget about the Taser, just simple combat and taking a man down instead of trying to shoot him.”

Again, the Lakers investigative team is clearly unaware of the second video and reports that police initially tried using a Taser on Blake. James then “speculated” on the mindset of the police officer who shot Blake.

“You have no idea how that cop that day left the house,” James said. “You don’t know if he woke up on the wrong side of the bed. You don’t know if he had an argument at home with his significant other. You don’t know if one of his kids said something to him and he left the house steaming. Or maybe he just left the house saying that, ‘Today is going to be the end for one of these black people.’ That’s what it feels like. That’s what it feels like. It just hurts. It hurts.”

I’m sure the Kenosha police are saying the exact same thing about Jacob Blake, who had an active arrest warrant for third-degree sexual assault at the time of the shooting. Blake has previously been arrested for pointing a weapon at people, carrying a concealed weapon into a building and domestic violence.

Did Jacob Blake wake up on the wrong side of the bed Sunday morning?

When I watched the initial viral video showing police shooting Blake in the back I was outraged. I waited to calm down. I sent the video to a couple of friends and discussed it with them. We wondered why it was only 20 seconds. Why was it edited? Was it edited and then released to provoke outrage, fear and rioting?

I decided it was best to wait for additional information before making any sort of comment. I’m still waiting for additional information. This column is not a defense of the police or vilification of Blake.

LeBron James has more than 40 million followers on Twitter. Doesn’t he have a “moral responsibility” to be informed and measured before commenting on a controversy that could inspire “civil” unrest? What’s the harm in waiting 48 hours, 72 hours or a week?

Is James intentionally being used as an “agent of chaos?” His logic is consistent with the logic of white bigots. James uses occasional anecdotes to make sweeping negative generalizations about white police officers.

“And y’all wonder why we say what we say about police!” James’ Twitter feed reads like a transcript from a KKK rally. Can’t you hear the Grand Wizard of the Klan shouting to his followers in the aftermath of O.J. Simpson?

“And y’all wonder why we say what we say about black people!” LeBron James foolishly thinks he’s overseeing the police. He’s overseeing the black KKK. He’s promoting “racism.” He’s demonizing a group of white people based on the behavior of a few.

As a black man that sort of “racist tactic” should be terrifying. That racist tactic was used to deny us freedom in this country. No one who professes to care about the welfare of black people would adopt the tactics of white bigots.

Bigots, regardless of color, have a common trait. Ignorance. Ignorance fuels their ego. Information is their enemy. They avoid it at all costs. Negative anecdotes frame their worldview.

“Bigotry” has subdued and detained LeBron James.

Black Lives Matter is a clever Twitter hashtag designed to spread “racial division.” Twitter baits and rewards “racial demagoguery.” James is addicted to social media. His bigotry is no surprise.

One Response to “BLM 101, Volume 1,2,3,4”

  1. Dude, didn’t want to go to jail for his sexual assault warrant and was willing to do anything not to, including putting his kids in extreme danger. Simple as that. Period…Exclamation Point!!! The Hodge Twins make a lot of sense. Why is it so difficult to understand that when a cop gives you an order and has a gun pointed at you, it’s in your best interest to follow the order. A lot of black mom’s talk about how they give their son’s, “The Talk.” I’m a white mom, w/a white teen son and I give my son, “The Talk.” It’s, basically, common sense. The ones who follow mom’s/dad’s advice are the one’s who stay alive. If you’ve got a warrant, then u have a choice to make. Let the cops do their job & arrest you or don’t. Yes, you can try to run; they aren’t supposed to shoot you for running, but when they catch u…and they will catch u, then you have to decide, “Should I keep trying to fight & risk being shot or should I give up & deal w/ it in court?” This is like 3rd grade math…SIMPLE! Also, I agree w/ a wait for all the evidence before these “celebrities” make their ridiculous statements, which just fan the flames, based on incomplete or completely false evidence!
