The problem is it isn’t Black Lives Matter – this was the Ten Point Platform issued by The Black Panthers 50 years ago!

Funding for the Black Panthers came through college speaking fees, shake-downs of business owners, and some individuals including John Lennon.   Labeled a Communist organization by the FBI in 1969, it became fueled with internal disputes that resulted in two deaths of their own members.  They subsequently disbanded. The New Black Panthers rose in 1983 as an offshoot of The Nation of Islam and CAIR.   They are emphatically ‘anti-white’ and antiSemetic and have called for the extermination of whites in South Africa.

While the former members of the original Black Panther Party condemn this new organization, the main split would be Marxism vs Islam, Islam being the ideology and make-up of the current members. MUCH of what they demand and pledge is today mimicked by Ocasio, Sanders, Omar, and the Marxist/Socialist/Communists that see ‘white supremacy’ and Jew Capitalism as the cause of black oppression.

The original demands included a guaranteed income, reparations for slave ancestors, and reparations for the 50 million blacks slaughtered by Americans (They don’t provide any statistical information for these numbers.).

Recently the self designated head of the BLM Movement declared they want the state of Texas as ownership rights for blacks who are ancestors of slaves. With a black population of 10%, an Hispanic population of 38%, and 50% white, that demand might hit a bit of resistance in Texas.   But it reveals the intention is not equality at all but instead it is more akin to annexation and nationalized statehood and succession from the US funded by – white US taxpayers.

One of the original founders of the Black Panthers, Bobby Hutton, was killed by Oakland police after Hutton and his comrades ambushed the police in an attempt to kill 13 officers.  They claimed the reason for the police ambush was because an escaped convict, James Earl Ray, assassinated Martin Luther King Jr…. and somehow the Oakland police were to blame. This is the logic employed.

The other founder, Bobby Seale has journeyed from a dishonorable discharge from the military to a convicted criminal spending a few stints in jail, to being shredded by his partner Hutton resulting in a lengthy hospitalization and the dissolution of the Black Panther Party. Since 2002, Seale has been diligently lecturing at more than 500 colleges across the country advocating for a return to Black Power and the rise of a New Revolution.

While the media focus is on crime statistics and disparities among blacks and whites, a complete statistical analysis has yet to be truthful and comprehensive. For example a recent ‘expose’ has claimed that blacks in the Bay Area are disproportionally targeted by the police!   Statistically, the Bay Area has had a mass exodus of blacks for about two decades resulting in less than 6% demographic representation.   High rent, high cost of living brought on by local mayors, Congressional Reps, and Governors have helped to create this migration status… all led by Democrats. Those blacks left in the Bay Area are living in poverty, homeless and/or gang related which accounts for the crime rates being disproportional.

Overall violent crime rates peaked in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s and have steadily declined since.   The dominant reason?

In 1996 Clinton, a Democrat, signed the AntiTerrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act.   The Act made deportation of immigrants – both illegal and legal – a fast track initiative. Although 7% of blacks made up these immigrants, 20% of those deported were black.   In addition, the Act increased the number of police across the nation.  The Act was seen as a purge of blacks – instituted by Democrats.

By 1980, homicide rates as a percentage of population revealed blacks were 8 times more likely to be the offender than whites.   By 2012, that ratio had dropped to 2.5 times, and has remained relatively steady since revealing that the drop in crime could be more related to unchartered immigration as opposed to color.

Still, BLM thinks that the solution is for Militant blacks to patrol neighborhoods in the police defunding movement – as though somehow they will be much better at curbing crime and criminal death rates.

Of course, the logic can be a bit comical as recently it was revealed that a BLM protest demanded Police Security – while they protested Police Brutality and advocated for the elimination of Police.

But no one said there was logic or rational behind ANY of this massively destructive Revolution that has been responsible for financial devastation in Democrat controlled cities:   Minneapolis – over $500 million.   140 cities across the US were targeted.   High value of destruction could be $70 billion.   With cities and states already facing massive deficits due to the CoVid shutdown – regaining a balanced or positive budget is slim to -0-.

Exodus has already begun with Florida seeing quite a few business and individual influx – the resultant effect will be impoverished major cities falling into the Mad Max realm of self preservation…

Juvenile Justice System…?

 

Lately I have been challenged on my belief with respect to children being charged in the justice system as adults.  I am against it.   I find it wrong on every level.  

We have decided that if a child acts in a wrongful manner, they are acting with the mental capacity of a mature adult.  And yet, if a child acts in a mature, compassionate and logical manner, they are still – a child.

We have decided that if a child acts in a wrongful manner, they are acting with the mental capacity of a mature adult. And yet, if a child acts in a mature, compassionate, and logical manner, they are still – a child.

What is wrong with this thinking?

A child of fifteen did some horrendous things, someone was hurt, property was damaged, and because this teen-age child acted in a manner befitting an adult, as in with malice, hate, and destruction, that child must be convicted as an adult – no matter the circumstance, the variables, that led this ‘child’ to be so criminal.

Lines have to be drawn to be sure. But who makes the lines? Each one is unique? Each one is predicated on circumstances. And yet, we have somehow usurped the norms of justice, and replaced them with boxes.

If you did this, then no matter who or what you are – you will be so convicted – even if it means taking a child – and suddenly stating they are an adult.

Does that mean that what defines an adult is all their sin and perversity?

Therefore, anyone who commits an evil act, is an adult, and will be punished as such.
But what if, the child was abused? Abandoned? Assaulted? Bullied? Sexually Abused? The possible reality list is endless in today’s day and age, and yet, our justice system fails to acknowledge that endlessness. Instead, the abused, assaulted, and abandoned child is expected to live according to rules of adulthood.

A fifteen year old in jail. Will that rehabilitate her? Will it change her? Will it make her believe in the system? Will it make her side with the authorities – or the victims? Recidivism in our penal system still hovers near the 70% mark.

How will she change?

To acknowledge aspects of the dialogue, I agree there are circumstances beyond our control, genetic shifts, an exposure to a toxin, etc… but given the waywardness of our youth today, I doubt their issues are derived from toxins and more likely false dialogue that sways their thinking.

And yet I can watch as a young girl is subjected to such a devious place – jail, and so many would support, “She deserves it…”

Consider if the IRS, the Military, the Government, Liquor Stores, School, Airlines, Insurance Companies, all followed the same criteria and allowed a fifteen year old to partake within their industries because they felt she/he was acting in an adult fashion and therefore deserving of their wares?

I believe that if you have a rule, and the rule says you are not an adult until the age of 18 – or 21 – then that’s what it is. Period.

I believe that every child – teen-ager – deserves a chance over and over – until they become an adult, and as an adult either get it right – or wrong. In the meantime, we as ‘adults’ have a duty to act – like – adults and tend to the needs of children, teaching them values of respect, honor, compassion, and virtue. When w we look fat the rants and attitudes we see across the media as they portray the youth today, you have to consider ‘who they are modeling’…
