What’s in a name?
Shakespeare’s Juliet may have believed that a rose by any other name is still a rose, but it was the Romans who trusted “nomen est omen” — a name is a destiny because names, do in fact, matter. If BLM had instead labeled themselves “Black Lives Matter, Too”, perhaps they would have had a more benevolent welcoming.
BLM sounds like a social justice crusade for blacks, but they actually represent very few.
Perhaps the folks with the signage and those in professional sports fail to realize how BLM has hijacked George Floyd’s death in order to stage a second and perverted sexual revolution.
BLM was founded by a trio of Marxist lesbians whose online manifesto: “What We Believe,” seeks to “disrupt” the “Western-prescribed” family (traditional mother and father), who have emancipated themselves from “heteronormative thinking” (anti-hetrosexual). They also demand “reproductive justice” (abortions) and “foster a queer‐affirming network” (pro-gay/transgender) that is the core of their creed to remake America in their image.
When anyone takes a knee or plants a sign, they pay homage to BLM’s anti-Christian credo.
More proof was when BLM activist Sean King tweeted: “All murals and stained glass windows of white Jesus, and his European mother, and their white friends should also come down. They are a gross form of white supremacy.” Christian churches and statues are now being desecrated with the BLM campaign as cover.
Their phrase “Black Lives Matter” emphasizes the duality of convenience. In one instance, it’s a slogan. However, when someone tries to extend it to all of humanity it becomes exclusive.
Objecting to painting BLM on the street is unassailable. BLM’s fanatic platform cannot be questioned because, after all, “black” is in its name.
Bestselling black author Shelby Steele said BLM is a “distraction” from the real issues. If black lives really mattered, they would be tearing down abortion mills and crack houses instead of statues and burning Bibles. Likewise, they would address the high murder rate perpetrated by blacks against blacks. By focusing on police racism, which by every available statistic has been in decline for decades, they reveal their true agenda: nullify the police so that chaos reigns over civic comity without which a unified republic cannot endure.
BLM demands that racism is systemic and that you either support them or you are racist. The only thing systemic is leftism, as BLM completely ignores the greater quantity of crime: deprived education and fatherless homes infecting black communities.
By claiming to fight bigotry, they not only excuse, but abet it, which is just another form of bigotry. You cannot simultaneously fight against violence while endorsing it.
Despite such radical ambitions, many folks stop at nothing to coddle and praise BLM. Such is the consequence of today’s remorseless zero-sum politics.
When BLM supports charter schools and educational vouchers, fights against the tens of thousands of black abortions annually, and promotes the notion that families with both a mother and father are the best chance of a child succeeding in life, their mantra and theatrics is just more divisive and violent political theater.

By displaying BLM signage, you not only sympathize with their cause, but provide license for them to engage in wanton violence and destruction.
Whether they can figure it out or not, BLM are the heirs of the Jim Crow racists, as they continue to mock everything the American nation was founded upon.
What really matters is how and why BLM wars against the Christian values of Western Civilization, and does so by sawing away at the very limb they stand on.
