Black Lives Matter Is Responsible For These Police Shootings (According to Liberal Logic)

There is no need to belabor a very simple point.

When an abortion doctor is killed, the pro-life movement is always blamed by the left and media. When the insane man went into the Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado, the Planned Parenthood video exposé was and its creators were blamed.

When an insane man kills his mother, steals her guns, and shoots up an elementary school in Connecticut, the NRA is to blame according to the left and media.

When the insane gunman shot congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head, it was Sarah Palin and the tea party who were to blame according to the left and media.

When a terrorist shot up a gay nightclub in Orlando, it was the NRA and repressive Christian culture in America that was to blame according to the left and media.

Therefore, when police officers are gunned down by black nationalists, it must be Black Lives Matters who is to blame.

It is the same logic.

But somehow I suspect we won’t be hearing the anchors on CNN and MSNBC suggesting that.

Or maybe everybody should focus on the actual bad guy instead of casting blanket assertions against groups. I just don’t think the left is willing to do that except in cases like this.
