Whatever it’s original purpose, Black Lives Matter has rapidly morphed into a militant anarchist organization – one that uses violence, threats, and intimidation to advance its agenda. Unfortunately, organizers haven’t really spent much time outlining a meaningful agenda outside of “everyone who isn’t black and angry sucks and must be silenced.”
And that means you, white liberals.
In what may be the most hilarious demonstration of the left being devoured by the very monster they birthed, nurtured, protected, fed, and groomed, Black Lives Matter activists utterly destroyed the ACLU’s recent “Students and the First Amendment” event on the campus of the College of William and Mary.
The scene is absolutely precious to behold. The ACLU, as evidenced by their speaker Claire Gastanaga, actually believes they can control these revolutionaries they’ve cultivated. And they can’t.
Just as Gastanaga began her speech about free speech on college campuses, Black Lives Matter militants rushed the stage and took over in much the same way they did to Bernie Sanders months ago. And much like Bernie’s helpless (and hilarious) response to just turn over his rally to them, Gastanaga humiliated herself by pretending she was still in control before just giving up:
Students took to the stage just a few moments after Gastañaga began her remarks. At first, she attempted to spin the demonstration as a welcome example of the kind of thing she had come to campus to discuss, commenting “Good, I like this,” as they lined up and raised their signs. “I’m going to talk to you about knowing your rights, and protests and demonstrations, which this illustrates very well. Then I’m going to respond to questions from the moderators, and then questions from the audience.”
Too funny. She actually appears to think that these militants cared at all what she had to say. She should know better since they’ve been groomed by groups like the ACLU to not listen, to not respect that there are two or more sides, but instead to organize, act aggrieved, then vocally and unrelentingly commandeer microphones and silence all other speech. You taught them, Claire, now you get to reap the whirlwind.
It was the last remark she was able to make before protesters drowned her out with cries of, “ACLU, you protect Hitler, too.” They also chanted, “the oppressed are not impressed,” “shame, shame, shame, shame,” (an ode to the Faith Militant’s treatment of Cersei Lannister in Game of Thrones, though why anyone would want to be associated with the religious fanatics in that particular conflict is beyond me), “blood on your hands,” “the revolution will not uphold the Constitution,” and, uh, “liberalism is white supremacy.”
“Liberalism is white supremacy.” Simply perfect to see these pejorative labels now being slapped on the very left-wing activists who first weaponized our language with these terms.
It’s become very obvious in recent decades that despite their claims to being champions of civil liberties, leftist progressives are on a mission to deny as many of those liberties as they can to those who disagree with them. That’s why they’ve either passively condoned, or actively cheered the anarchists among them as they’ve shut down conservative speech. Exposing themselves as complete frauds when it comes to conscience rights, speech rights, free expression and the exchange of ideas, groups like the ACLU have justified the silencing of conservative speech by calling it “hate speech” or bigotry.
But now the chickens are coming home to roost. Now the very grievance-mongering malcontents they’ve created are turning on them, labeling them bigots and supremacists. The ACLU and their fellow progressive travelers have been playing a dangerous game as they’ve bred and fostered the intolerance and fascism of groups like BLM and Antifa.
Now it’s all beginning to backfire, and it simply couldn’t be funnier to watch.
