• Radical Leftists Don’t Seem to Agree That All Black Lives Matter

    Surge Summary: Why don’t radical activists want to “say the name” of a black Louisville, KY police officer who was shot earlier this week? Or of Kentucky’s African-American attorney general who won his seat by a landslide and is standing for the law? It seems, unless a black American can be used for tearing apart America, they aren’t interested in him/her.   

    By Gary Bauer

    “Say Her Name!” has become a mantra of the left as it attempts to exploit the tragic death of Breonna Taylor.  Yet it is astonishing how little national media interest there is in the two Louisville police officers who were shot earlier this week.  It’s almost as if they never existed.

    One officer, who is white, was shot in the hip, and thankfully managed to return to work [Thursday].  His name is Aubrey Gregory.  The other officer, who is black, was shot in the stomach, right below his bullet-proof vest.  He underwent surgery and remains in the hospital.  His name is Robinson Desroches, and he joined the Louisville police force just last year.

    How is it that this movement, which claims to care about black lives, has turned dozens of cities into hotbeds of anarchy?  It is clearly not motivated by the concerns of black Americans, who overwhelmingly support the police.

    But some radical activists within this movement couldn’t care less about black police officers.  If they did, they would be saying, “Remember Officer Robinson Desroches.”

    Some of the people saying the judicial system is racist and needs reform don’t really mean that.  If they did, they would be applauding Daniel Cameron, the black attorney general of Kentucky, who won his election by one of the largest margins in Kentucky history.

    It is clear that if you are a black police officer or black attorney general who is doing your job and following the law, you are not really black as far as this radical movement is concerned.

    So, it’s not justice that they are after.  No doubt there are some well-meaning protesters who are.  But they are being used by powerful forces who seem intent on ripping America apart, almost as if they are trying to provoke a race war.

    Sadly, there are many corporations, professional athletes, media commentators and Hollywood stars lending their prestige and power to magnify this movement that wants to destroy the country that has made them so successful.  They are what the Soviets used to call “useful idiots.”

    They should be speaking up in defense of the police and the black attorney general of Kentucky.

    Wake up, America, before it’s too late!
