• Guest, The rules for the P & N subforum have been updated to prohibit "ad hominem" or personal attacks against other posters. See the full details in the post "Politics and News Rules & Guidelines."

So, remember how Black Lives Matter was a non-violent, non-looty organization?

Babididu balamupabab dopdidu?
What would you have them do that they are not already doing? Again, BLM is not a top steered cooperate experiment.
I dont think you understand how this works. How people work.
He understands how it works....
This is his version of a dog and pony show!
Pretend to be an idiot by asking insane questions.....

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH the fucking BEAUTIFUL irony of a liberal fucking moron mayor attempting to impose a "ban" on protesting in front of her home.

LOL. Fucking. Hilarious.

I came here looking to see if there was a topic on this. Of course not. It doesn't fit the narrative. There is no way anyone can find this defensible.

I propose the following. If politicians or people with significant resources can have bodyguards, clearly Joe Public should have the right to carry and defend with lethal force if need be.

"I have a right to make sure that my home is secure". The rest of you plebs, fuck off. Hypocrisy at it's finest. But the simpletons will vote her in again regardless.

The right likes to throw word "terrorist" around, but is all offended when it's thrown back at them.

Actually a case could be made that Police are domestic terrorists!!
Who are you going to call when your car gets stolen? Or a loved one is raped? Or your friend is assaulted? My guess would be those "Domestic Terrorists".

Domestic assault usually involves my wife. Are you suggesting she's some kind of Terry too?

Domestic terrorist or not who do you call??? Being a policeman is the only profession you can be a crook at and a hero at the same time!!

Back to the OP’s title...didn’t realize BLM was an organization, which implies recognized leadership, headquarters, etc.

Haven’t seen or heard of BLM’s top leadership or where its headquarters is located. Help a guy out and point those out, pls. Thx.

In the About section of the BLM website, they define themselves as an organization:

https//blacklivesmatter.com/about/

“Black Lives Matter was founded in 2013 in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc is a global organization in the US, UK and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.”

The website identifies its leader and co-founders.

The website identifies a decentralized network of chapters spread across the country, which serve as local headquarters to coordinate local activism which needs to have local leadership for it to be successful.

So in summary, they define themselves as an organization and it has leadership and localized chapters.

That leadership is not supporting rioting and looting. They could more assertively denounce it. In Portland, BLM activists had altercations with rioters. In Chicago, they seem more inclined to empathize with rioting and looting.
