So the city of Northampton joined Somerville by putting up a “Black Lives Matter” banner at City Hall. Not surprising since Northampton is infested with hippies and anti-police nudniks. You can read all about it here. A former Northampton Police Officer wrote an op-ed for Masslive, sharing his opposition to this banner. When he was on the force in November 0f 2014 he was verbally assaulted by protesters who berated him after the non-indictment of Darren Wilson for shooting Michael Brown in self defense. Naturally he was called a racist and is probably a social pariah in town at this point. Because you can’t stereotype people by race, sexual orientation, or which bathroom they choose to identify with, but you can stereotype an entire profession simply because they wear a blue uniform.
To him, and to most rational people, this isn’t about “black lives matter.” Because as we know, black lives definitely matter. That’s just common sense. This movement isn’t about making Michael Brown’s life matter. It’s about scapegoating police for the failures of certain black men who choose not to obey the law. Michael Brown didn’t have to die, but he chose to wrestle with a cop and try to take his gun, and not surprisingly he lost his life as a result. Mike Brown’s life mattered to everyone except Mike Brown.
More than anything, this has been used as a rallying card for every cop-block little shitstain to bad mouth and generalize ALL police officers. According to Masslive, several protesters in November of 2014 carried signs at a rally outside of City Hall that included, “No Police State,” “Subvert the Rule of Racist Law,” and “F- the Police.” Newsflash black lives matter – it’s because of your association with messages like that that people associate your movement with anti-cop nonsense.
This is Northampton City Councilor Alisa Klein:
Her face might as well be the official mascot for Northampton, because that is exactly what I think of when I think of NoHo. She was at the rally on that night in November and said the following about police:
“When I hear that it’s a matter of officer safety, I say bullshit! This wasn’t a tragic accident. It’s murder, it’s racism, it’s injustice. It’s inhumanity. The lives of black and brown people matter everywhere.”
LOL. Yea, it has nothing to do with officer safety. Cops should just allow criminals to take their guns and murder them. That’s it. The fact that idiots like this can get elected tells you everything you need to know about Northampton.
See, the thing is, it’s not murder Alisa. If it were murder then a grand jury, which included several black people, would’ve chosen to indict. It’s not racism, because racism is a deep seeded belief that your race has physical characteristics that make you superior to other races. Where’s your evidence that Darren Wilson believes that? Oh yea, you don’t have any. You’re just throwing that word out there because you’re a Northampton social justice warrior. Facts are meaningless to you, especially if you have a bullhorn in your hand.
So yea the fact that people like her are the ones rallying behind the “black lives matter” message, is the main reason why people are skeptical of that banner. Because it doesn’t really mean “black lives matter.” It means that cops don’t have a right to protect themselves, all cops are inherently racist, and if we don’t agree with those things then we’re all racist too.
She wasn’t the only one who said stuff like this either:
“We need the police to hear this sh-t,” yelled Amherst activist Ed Cage. “So they don’t f- up and do the same thing they did in Ferguson.” Cage said police in Massachusetts towns are “just a step away from doing what they did in Ferguson.”
Translation – cops in Northampton should allow dangerous criminals to kill them.
Amherst activist Sovann-Malis Leong asked white people to “talk to their children about their privilege.”
Wait, I thought this was about “black lives matter?” Now we’re forcing white people to lecture their kids about “white privilege?” A concept that is laughable, dumb, and easily debunked.
Minister Charles Stokes of Springfield said every black male knows what it’s like to walk into a subway, and watch the uncomfortable reaction of white people, even those who profess to not be racist. “White supremacy is a disease that says ‘because of the color of my skin, I am better than you,'” said Stokes.
I’m glad that yet another
minister politician is using the pulpit to divide people. I’m glad that he’s speaking for ALL black people, because apparently he has the ability to speak for tens of millions of people of color nationwide.
But the worst of all the protesters on that November night was a local hippie named Vanessa Lynch. She is a professional protester who has been arrested more times than she can count. She organized the illegal blockade of the busiest intersection in Springfield, at the “X”, last April. Here she is being handcuffed while yelling “FTP, fuck the police,” and “we shut shit down.”
She seems lovely. In a normal town she would be ignored and laughed at. But Northampton ain’t a normal town. Instead of being ridiculed, nutjobs like Vanessa Lynch get seats at special town discussions about race:
That’s her on the far left, two seats away from Alisa Klein. The woman singing a song about Trayvon Martin is a public school teacher at Amherst-Pelham Regional. I’m sure her class if fair and balanced. Here’s what she said at this conference about the Northampton Police.
Lynch, 23, of Northampton, said she does not feel safe calling the police when there is a problem, nor does she feel safer with officers of color because she believes they have internalized the racism directed at them.
Uh-oh, someone get this girl a safe space!!! LOL. Just another professional victim whining about imaginary danger she faces while she lives in the most progressive and safest city in the state. But please, tell me more about the black cops in Northampton are dangerous because they have “internalized racism.” Because this is a woman whose movement (black lives matter) should obviously be taken seriously. Obviously.
During the November 2014 protest outside of City Hall, she led an illegal blockade of the streets which shut down traffic on the busiest road in the city for over an hour (front right in the bootleg camo):
Notice all the honkies in dreadlocks. Northampton is 2.7% black. So all these social justice warriors who supposedly are so welcoming of black people, certainly don’t seem to want them in their neighborhoods. But please, tell me more about how the police are the racist ones.
According to Masslive, “Arise for Social Justice organizer Vanessa Lynch led the group in several chants, yelling “Indict, convict, send that killer cop to jail; the whole damn system is guilty as hell.”
She also urged people to boycott businesses owned by white people and called the police an “occupying force”:
Lynch asked the crowd to stand in solidarity with Michael Brown’s family on “Black Friday” by patronizing only minority-owned businesses. Lynch called police “an occupying force in our community,” and said Brown’s death was not an isolated incident, but part of an entrenched system of racism.
Yup, she seems rational. Let’s make small business owners suffer on the busiest shopping day of the year because they have the misfortune of being born into imaginary white privilege. This is someone whose viewpoint and opinions should be held in high regard.
The fact of the matter is that SHE is the face of the black lives matter movement. She doesn’t give a shit about Michael Brown. His life meant nothing to her. She only cares about furthering her own anti-police agenda. This is why the banner should be banned at City Hall. Because at the end of the day “Black Lives Matter” is really codeword for “Fuck the police.”
We understand that shit like this happens all the time in Western MA, and not all people out there are like this. The normal people in Northampton must lose their Goddamn minds waking up to this nonsense every day. So for the working folks in the 413 who are sick of shit like this, we’ve got your back. Keep sending us stories like this and we’ll keep exposing these frauds one by one. Turtleboy has exposed every crook and chiseler in Worcester, but every city in America needs their own Turtleboy. Because someone has to be the voice of reason.
