One of the newest memes making its way around the internet and among the Twitter cult is “Black Lives Matter.”
The meme has become sacrosanct. It’s now part of sacred secular-progressive scripture, so much so that when Kathleen McCartney, president of Smith College in Massachusetts said “all lives matter,” she was immediately condemned for watering down the “black lives matter” meme.
As a result, she was forced by pressure from students to apologize for her insensitive argument that all lives matter.
“One student told the The Daily Hampshire Gazette that ‘it felt like she was invalidating the experience of black lives,’ while another said McCartney had “minimized the anti-blackness of this current situation.”
“It felt like” is the basis for all of what passes for liberal thinking. It’s what a person “feels,” not what actually is. Facts only get in the way of feelings since what a person feels, whether an act is right or wrong or beneficial or ultimately destructive, is the most important human attribute for a cause.
Lars Larson, speaking to Martha MacCallum on Fox’s ‘America’s Newsroom,’ said “the only thing McCartney did wrong here was apologize. MacCallum argued that McCartney should have defended her ‘all lives matter’ statement, not backed down.’
Of course, she couldn’t defend her statement that “all lives matter” since Smith College is a bastion of leftist thinking. It’s where abortion rights icons Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem attended.
Here’s the thing. For liberals, all lives don’t matter. Only liberal lives matter. The sad thing is, that many liberal “feel good” projects have the effect of hurting the people liberals claim they want to help.
It doesn’t matter because how you feel when implementing programs that might fail and eventually enslave people does not matter. It was how you feel as a liberal doing something that matters.
It reminds me of this line from Carole King song, sung by Debby Boone, “You Light Up My Life”:
It can’t be wrong,
When it feels so right.
And what about the “Black Lives Matter” meme? How accurate is it?
To many blacks this isn’t the case, since blacks are more likely to be killed by other blacks than by white people and/or police officers.
If black lives matter so much, why have liberals pushed for social welfare programs that have hurt black families, black employment, black education, and turned millions of blacks into welfare dependents?
Again, it’s all about the slogans and how a person of liberal convictions feels when implementing a program that matters.
Then there’s the sky high abortion rate among blacks:
“In 2012, there were more black babies killed by abortion (31,328) in New York City than were born there (24,758), and the black children killed comprised 42.4% of the total number of abortions in the Big Apple, according to a report by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene.
“The report is entitled, Summary of Vital Statistics 2012 The City of New York, Pregnancy Outcomes, and was prepared by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Office of Vital Statistics. (See Pregnancy Outcomes NYC Health 2012.pdf)”
Many in the black community have called this “black genocide.” For example, black pro-life leaders like Dr. Alveda King responded to the “Black Lives Matter” by claiming, if the media “‘really thought that black lives matter they would be protesting abortion on demand.’
“Former Rep. Allen West called out the ‘hypocrisy’ of the ‘new leftist progressive sound bite’ while The Radiance Foundation’s Ryan Bomberger asked, ‘[H]ow sincere is the mantra that #BlackLivesMatter if the violent act of abortion and the disproportionate slaughter of unborn minority children is praised as “reproductive justice”?’”
One more thing. There are many liberals who would like to see Tea party members killed off.
