In Florida, you can’t fly the popular Blue Lives Matter flag. Three guesses why. If raaaaaaaacism wasn’t your first guess, it’s like you never listen to us in the first place. We’re hurt. Deeply.
“If you drive by and see that flag, it kind of makes you feel a little bit better, that there’s a family that supports what I’m doing,” he told Fox 30 in their Friday report. But he claimed his daughter got a letter from the local homeowners association saying they got a complaint: the flag, a neighbor said, was racist, offensive, and opposed to Black Lives Matter.
Actually, the Blue Lives Matter flag is not opposed to Black Lives Matter. It’s in response TO Black Lives Matter (see Ferguson Effect? Chicago Police Officer Didn’t Defend Herself ‘For fear of backlash…’ and Blue Lives Matter? Hillary Specifically SNUBS National Police Union).
Black Lives Matter and the anti-cop media lying on their behalf is why the flag has become so popular. That’s why houses across the country fly the flag. It’s as much a symbol of racism as Santa is a symbol of corporate greed. Or Weight Watchers.
See, the Blue Lives Matter flag is in support of police officers, regardless of race, gender, or creed. It supports an occupation dedicated to “protecting and serving” the public. It was created, as already mentioned, in response to Black Lives Matter, a movement which only seems to support criminal “people of color” shot by police… for reasons which seem a little bit justified (allegedly). We’ve seen that Black Lives Matter cares not a puff about “people of color” shot by other “people of color” though. Black Lives Matter also doesn’t give two craps about “people of color” who stray from the assigned narrative. To Black Lives Matter, “people of color” need to know their place… Related Black Lives Matter Activist Violently Assaults Girlfriend. For Refusing to Get Abortion
While Blue Lives Matter is more inclusive and actually a supportive symbol built around an idea (not a race or gender), Black Lives Matter is a narrow, damaging movement built on false narratives. So you tell me, which is more “hateful.”
