Turtleboy doesn’t normally watch Fox News but everyone was telling us we had to watch the Kelly Files last night because they had 30 loud mouthed and opinionated people on a panel to discuss racism, black lives matter, and police. Shockingly it was not the civil and dignified conversation you thought it would be. Which is weird, because everyone always talks about wanting to have a “conversation” but it usually just turns into yelling. Basically the whole thing was dominated by two very opinionated black lives matter babes whose opinions were more valuable than everyone else because they yelled the loudest:
For instance, this woman sure didn’t like being told that police were scared to police right now:
Yea, what do cops have to worry about? It’s not like psychopath protesters are sniping them one at a time simply because they’re wearing blue uniforms. What do they have to be scared of?
When someone brought up the indisputable fact that the vast, vast majority of black people who are murdered are killed by other black people, and that perhaps the focus of BLM is on the wrong people, she wasn’t feeling that. According to her the majority of whites are killed by other whites, which proves…….something:
Gotta love that counterargument. Of course the majority of white people who are murdered are killed by other white people. This would be a relevant point to make if there was a mass movement called “white lives matter” that accused the police of systematically murdering white people. But out here in grown up world there is only a group called “black lives matter” which is why black on black crime is discussed, but white on white crime is not discussed. This is very, very simple concept to understand, and only a stupid person could not comprehend this.
The best part was when she said that the white people who are killed by cops are “guilty of their crimes – they’re not innocent.” As if people like Alton Sterling, Mike Brown, and Jamar Clark were on their way to volunteer at the soup kitchen when they were killed simply for being black in America.
Speaking of white guys getting killed by cops, everyone knows that more white people are killed by cops every year than black people. But proportionally more black people are killed by cops, therefore cops are racist. But this ignores the simple fact that maybe, just MAYBE, this is a direct result of an increased crime rate in urban neighborhoods. Ya know, because if you break the law you’re more likely to end up interacting with the police. Nah, must be racism. The chart right here says so.
That’s like saying NBA refs are racist because they call a disproportionate amount of fouls on black guys when compared to their overall population in America. But the majority of people in the NBA are black, so obviously they’re gonna get called for more fouls. Make sense? If not then you are really, really dumb.
Anyway the highlight of the panel came when this genius came out and announced her cure for racism – we need to abolish the police:
Such a hot take. What could possibly go wrong? We should let “community activists” like her keep people safe in urban neighborhoods. They’re doing such a bang up job as it is. I’m sure drug dealers and murderers will be intimidated by her finger pointing and sassy attitude. So what should we spend tax dollars on instead?
Ah yes, “youth programs.” Because there aren’t nearly enough programs in inner cities. And as we all know, gangstas and drug dealers LOVE going to youth programs. That sounds way more appealing than making quick money and establishing your street cred. This woman clearly knows what she’s talking about.
Megyn Kelly asked what we all were thinking – who will protect the community if we abolish the police. Her takes continued to be scorching hot:
“We need to come up with community solutions. The police force began as slave patrol.”
Nothing like some vague answer such as “community solutions” when we talk about abolishing the police. After all, the police began as “slave patrol” and nothing has changed in 200 years. This is logical thinking.
The bottom line is that everyone always asks for a “conversation” whenever racism comes up. But no one really wants to have a conversation. People just wanna yell at each other. A couple of the older black ministers in this group made the most relevant points. They talked about teaching their children to respect the police and not set bad examples for them. Naturally they were shouted down by the younger, louder BLM protesters. This is why America can’t have nice things.
