Which Way To Justice? The Role of Black Lives Matters in Electing Donald Trump

August 18, 2015: Clinton meets with black lives matter shortly after announcing her candidacy on April 12, 2015.
 For twenty-four days during 2014, split into two different periods of time, the black people of the Ferguson and the greater St Louis, Missouri area assembled under the title of the black lives matter movement, then looted, committed arson, assaulted, shot, and otherwise contradicted the organization's claims of being a cry for the betterment of the treatment of black people. Instead, they became a cliche.

As more and more people organized themselves under the hashtag campaign and banners of black lives matter, they loudly advocated murder of white policemen, and behold: they were murdered. 

The wait which ordinary citizens have to endure normally in order to get justice, and the public's sympathy, were indignantly tossed aside for the "full of sound and fury, signifying nothing"resort of violence, and shameless media attention-seeking. Black lives matter had no idea how it shot itself in the foot.

Instead, its organizers felt they were simply untouchable. And they advocated their own kind of one-sided extortion of one city, at a time, calling the wake of destruction "protests", and striking out against the laws of this nation in an act which they called "social justice". 

No one is disputing that a few of their profiled cases are, indeed, unlawful shootings, and murders. What we are disputing is the racism that charged this group, insamuch as it literally ignored black police shooting black defendants. Indeed, the Michael Scott Case in North Carolina was an unintended beneficiary of the group's railing cries for reform, as the family in Charlotte was caught lying, the spouse was caught lying, and the shooting caught on camera, and clearly justified. In the light of those revelations, black lives matter simply walked out of Charlotte, not even trying to hide that racist act.

Meanwhile, the polls for Clinton's victories being issued by 538 in particular, placed Clinton at a ridiculous 83% chance of beating Trump. 

In the news, constantly running imagery and racial-bating was the rule, spurred-on by a self-defeating quest for ratings. Even Jon Stewart mocked CNN for that network's banal and uneventfully over narrated coverage

As the second Ferguson riots began in November, and the media darlings it's founders became dodged murder charges in Kentucky, pandering charges in Detroit, and they still retained an inexplicable presence in the media, receiving millions in grants, photo shoots with the Obama White House, and access to deeper and deeper pockets, while still ignoring the black cop on black defendant issue.

By the time January of 2016 rolled around, the people of the United States were sick of three things: Christmas, the looming presidential race, and black lives matter.

Not wasting time, the candidacies which were announced during campaign years once upon a time, are now being announced well-before August, presumably one year prior to the party conventions, and one year and nearly one half before the November 20, 2016 election.

By the time of the continuing riots, and Clinton's out-of-touch attempts to embrace that risky platform item, we have NAACP chapter presidents appearing on local television stations expecting to be taken seriously issuing the clueless declaration, "When black people is selling drugs, that is they business. And when the polices comes, and wants em in jail, the black folks is gonna shoot em cos that is they job, it's how they feed they families..."

And this December 2015 television interview is followed by a late February Clinton campaign stop at the historic 16th Ave Baptist Church, where, in her level best imitation of Martin Luther King, (and black face isn't infuriating, anymore?) she accuses the then Gov Bentley's efforts to fund Medicaid by closing unused driver's license bureaus, a very few of which drew partisan criticism within the state. She called this "proof Alabama continues to engage in institutional racism". She repudiating him by claiming, among other things, "Maybe Jim Crow is alive and well..."

To this hour Alabama's Medicaid remains unfunded.
Feb 27, 2016: the Clinton speech at the historic 16th Street Baptist Church, where her antics included an offensive channeling of the Rev Martin Luther King, as well as using the opportunity to exploit would-be black voters in a partisan rant. The stop itself was actually a concession to Republican Alabama, and pretty well completed her campaign's efforts in that state. 

Watching all of this, with great interest. was the campaign of Donald Trump, but also watching was not one hacking Russian, nor one honest Wikileaks admin nailing Podesta and the resta that crew as the douchebags that they are. From November 2015 through to January 2016, the riot activity fizzled-out, restarted, and repeated this cycle,  and in this way, kept the nation on its  toes. This, in spite of a concerted attempt to interrupt the Super Bowl in January, which itself, fell on deaf ears. But black lives matter was not out, not by a long shot.

This was the beginning of traditional campaign season in January 2016, a season in which the leading candidates would distinguish themselves in terms of what they thought about black lives matter. And each candidate was more than willing to do so.
Sen Ted Cruz (R), Texas, reflects the feelings of the majority of Americans whom view black lives matter as a "murderous terror organization." The polarizing issue of Black Lives Matter was bound to be left at the altar if Clinton had won, or indicted as a mob if Trump won: either way, by 2016 campaign season, a large and growing counter movement was moving into the center of the political spectrum.


The polarizing effect of black lives matter had a damaging effect on the Democratic party which endorsed and helped to fund them nationally. But the issue would become the most reliable straw poll for determining who would win the presidency. Party loyalties withered, and undecided voters began to hear daily news reports about murdered cops, simultaneously, they saw the media attention seeking of black lives matters leaders, and slowly, the democratic base began to feel threatened as well as disillusioned by it all. This resulted in a party defection still poorly understood, and the victim of didactically biased analysis flaws. Trump voters would respond to the vulgarities and racist hypocrisies of black lives matter at the polls, and as an attempt to avert more widespread conflict. Trump voters began to view the press, as well as the entire D party, as unforgivably out of touch.

The Roles of Polls
Polling firms then revealed themselves to be either out of touch, or blatantly fraudulent. The very few that put Trump as the winner were either ignored, or repudiated by the 538 organization, whose founder, Nate Silver, made the unsubstantiatable and unqualified claim that he had chosen each winner since 1988. I, personally, have never heard of Nate Silver, but I have picked each winner since 1976, and been wrong, too. It seemed, from outward appearances, that the results of 538 were simply reproduced by the other firms except Gallup, which never had Trump less than the winner consistently. But Gallup was the exception.
Results like these lulled the Democratic party faithful to sleep, as they were often issued hourly. Strange how out of touch Democratic party voters were, in light of the pizzagate accusation, the Podesta Emails, as well as the emergence of proof that Clinton had been treated with preferential treatment from the media. A number of reasons are to blame for this, any one of which may possibly explain it, none more accurately than party loyalties. But it is clear that the Clinton candidacy was engaged in subterfuge. Individuals at CNN, for example, were outed by Wikileaks for having sent Clinton's staff debate questions in-advance, and the denials only fed the belief that the media was trying to alter the outcome of the election.

Thus when the media outlets nationwide feigned shock on Nov 20, 2016, it wasn't actually a surprise that Trump won. It was the moment that collectively, the various outlets suddenly faced that they have lost a damaging amount of credibility, and tried to recoup it in recent months by pushing the Russia hacked conspiracy. The seeds of that disparity, between what they attempted to force at the polls, and the results of the election, were the 538 polls, although it is of a great likelihood that each media outlet actually knew what the election results would be. But the damage was done. There would be a lasting loss of credibility, and the realities of the fear and the race-bating, as well as the cheating, were now deconstructed world-wide. Only this time, the various organizations would not be able to escape their ties to Rothschilds and Bilderberger control.

But the catalyst of all this was the riots, and the war against the law enforcement officers in every state in which these murders occured,  and it inflicted scars upon the black lives matter movement in general. The killings were vile acts. But the black lives matters movement helped to create the myth that these murders were somehow divine justice. This infuriated the US voters beyond party affiliations because the out-of-touch and unrealistic goals of black lives matter offended everybody.

The election of 2016, therefore, was more of an indictment of black lives matter by the victorious Trump voters, than it was the embracing of such a controversial figure. Trump voters felt, that in some small way, this would express the outrage and contempt for the violence and  behaviour of black lives matter which both the Clinton and Sanders camps had shockingly endorsed. The Clinton campaign went into the last hours of the election still loudly repeating those endorsements. And this caused Trump voters to feel that voting for Trump was the last exit from the highway of open race war in the streets, and in the rural, as well as urban, American landscape.

Like the Charlotte riots, which fizzled out early due to the revelations by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Dept that the officer whom shot Keith Scott was also black, and the shooting was justified: black lives matters has sort of fizzled-out. And the entire nation breathed a sigh of relief upon the echoes of murders and destructive events that never were, because Clinton lost.

In time I am certain that people will forget the role black lives matters played in defeating Clinton, then you may see them re-emerge and act foolishly again. Hopefully, nobody will have to die, regardless of their ethnicity.
