#BlackLivesMatter Protest

Not Odd At All

Black Lives Matter and Michael Bloomberg: the oddest couple?

Meanwhile, the media have treated the budding partnership between the ascendant Black Lives Matter and the perennially frustrated gun control movement as if it were the most natural thing in the world — probably because both efforts lean left. That alliance, however, is truly unlikely, even nonsensical. Historically, civil rights and gun control have been at odds. The blunt fact is that one side seeks to rein in law enforcement, while the other wishes to give it more power.

Murdoc’s made this argument in conversation several times but he always ends up getting treated like a racist.

One part of this alliance claims that police are brutal and out of control and cannot be trusted to the point where civil unrest is the only way to stand up for basic human rights and defense against brutality by those in power. Another part says only the police can be trusted with guns.

It’s almost like they’re not making any sense.

Or maybe they’re both just tools for the same puppet masters.

Meanwhile, everywhere else:
