Details are still coming out about who killed the three police officers in Baton Rogue. Now, if you’ve been watching CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, CBS (etc.) you may think that we don’t know anything about the shooter yet. Except the opposite of that is true. We know that the shooter’s name was Gavin Eugene Long and that he operated a YouTube account under the name Cosmo Setepenra.
While some authorities are currently ruling out that this was race related, judging from some of these videos… it definitely appears as if the shooter was targeting police officers. How do I know? Because of the shooter himself.
Long also appears to have been in Dallas in the days after Micah X. Johnson killed five police officers during protests there earlier this month. Like Long, Johnson had also served in the military and was affiliated with the radical black liberation movement.
“It’s justice. You know what I’m saying?” Long said in one video defending Johnson’s attack.
“If I’m peaceful protesting…I know they would try to arrest me, and I would die right there because you’re not going to kidnap me. I know my rights, but I stand on my rights. That’s what separates me, that’s why they’re afraid of me,” he says in his video from Dallas.
Yes, the shooter was in Dallas right after police were assassinated.
A week later, this shooter was assassinating cops in Baton Rouge.
But I’m sure it’s just an isolated incident that has nothing to do with #BlackLivesMatter (see Black Lives Matter Founder Tweets About ‘Killing White Folk.’ Lashes Out at Critics… and #BlackLivesMatter Stops Sick Baby From Getting To Hospital). At the very least, even if this isn’t technically “racially motivated”, it is still very much inspired by the militantly anti-police movement courtesy of #BlackLivesMatter. See, contrary to Sarah Palin targeting Congressional districts on a map for voters, #BlackLivesMatter is not merely a byproduct of rhetoric. It is a movement of action.
When a movement is entirely predicated on the idea that the police force is a derivative of systemic racism of inhuman proportions… what’s the logical conclusion? There is only one. Destruction of the police force. Sure, some could argue that they merely wanted to do so politically, but everyone knows that systemic corruption (as BLM has implied) cannot be eliminated peacefully. Take the video below for example. If you truly believe the propaganda coming from #BlackLivesMatter, you would not only support armed revolution against police officers, but take part.
Well, here we are…
