DALLAS SHOOTER MICAH JOHNSON: Did #BlackLivesMatter Inspire Terrorist?

Posted on | July 8, 2016 | 60 Comments

 

Hatred of police and white people inspired mass murderer Micah Johnson’s terrorist attack in Dallas that killed five police officers and wounded seven others. Dallas Police Chief David Brown said at a press conference Friday morning that, during a standoff with police, Johnson specifically mentioned the anti-police group “Black Lives Matter”:

A gunman “upset about Black Lives Matter” and “recent police shootings” who opened fire Thursday night in Dallas, killing five police officers and wounding seven others, has been identified as Micah X. Johnson, the Los Angeles Times and CBS News report.
Two civilians were also wounded in the shootings. Johnson, 25, was killed when a police robot detonated a bomb near him following a standoff that lasted several hours, Police Chief David Brown said Friday at a press conference.
“The suspect said he was upset with white people and wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” Brown said.

Critics have accused the Black Lives Matter movement of being a hate group that exploits and incites racial animosity. Fanatical supporters of Black Lives Matter flooded Twitter with anti-police messages after Thursday’s shooting, calling for even more violence against police.

“This is the war that Black Lives Matter asked for,” David Horowitz said Thursday night after the deadly attack in Dallas, later asking: “Do you think we have a domestic terrorist threat from the left?”

The anti-police ideology of “Black Lives Matter has historical roots in the radical Left, investigative journalist Matthew Vadum reports:

The ambush-style mass shooting of cops in Dallas, Texas, last night makes it clear that it is time for the dangerous, anti-American insurgency called Black Lives Matter to be designated a terrorist organization for fomenting a war against the nation’s law enforcement officers.
The officers were killed during a demonstration in downtown Dallas against police brutality that leftists say is directed at black Americans as a matter of government policy. . . .
Of course, murdering police officers has long been encouraged by activists with the Black Lives Matter cult, with the support of the activist Left. A year ago Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, who openly advocates the mass murder of whites, called for “10,000 fearless men” to “rise up and kill those who kill us.” Like many radicals, Farrakhan mischaracterizes Black Lives Matter as a rising civil rights movement.
President Barack Obama, who a decade ago promoted inter-racial warfare in Kenya, has long tried to provoke civil unrest here in the U.S. with his hateful anti-cop rhetoric and his relentless demonization of opponents. His goal is fundamental transformation of the United States. A Red diaper baby who identifies violence-espousing communist Frantz Fanon as an intellectual influence, he has also steadfastly refused to condemn the explicitly racist, violent Black Lives Matter movement. In fact Obama has lavished attention on the movement’s leaders and invited them to the White House over and over again.
Members of the Democratic National Committee expressly endorsed Black Lives Matter, throwing their lot in with black racists and radical Black Power militants. The DNC officially embraced a statement that slams the U.S. for allegedly systemic police violence against black people. A resolution passed by hundreds of delegates at the DNC meeting in Minneapolis last year accuses the nation’s police of “extrajudicial killings of unarmed African American men, women and children.”
The Left persists in these lies because, well, that’s what these people do.
According to one analysis, of all the people shot and killed in the U.S. by police so far in 2016, only 24 percent, or 122, were black. Black people are only about 13 percent of the population but they commit around half of all violent crimes. So far this year 47 percent of people shot and killed by police, or 235 individuals, were white.
Only 3 percent, or 13 people shot and killed by police year to date were black and unarmed. The percentage for whites is exactly the same. In other words, police are shooting and killing unarmed blacks and whites at the same rate, Paul Joseph Watson observes.
“There’s no racial disparity,” he says. “Do we have a problem with police brutality in America? Yes, undoubtedly. Is it almost exclusively targeted towards black people as Black Lives Matter claims? No, but the polarizing way in which Black Lives Matter made it all about race has divided the nation and made half of the country completely disinterested.” . . .

    I can dig it. I see the results in the corporate world all the time. HR says hire this or that “oppressed minority.” I ask, can’t I just hire the best person for the job? Answer: no. So I get stuck with non-performing, trouble-making deadweight because “discrimination” is somehow a bad word. Worst part, I get saddled with bad employees not of my own choosing, then get blamed when they can’t do the work.

    We’re going to disagree, we’re human, we can’t help that.

    My hope is that we can recognize enough virtue in each other so that we at least listen to each other and think about what the other says.

    I’m old fashioned. The only way to cultivate virtue is to put virtue out there. And for that you need those who have chosen to be honorable for the sake of honor, not out of hope of some reward of fear of punishment.

    Why else would a libertarian troublemaker hang out on a mostly conservative board?

    The people agitating for hate crimes laws do so with the assumption that they will not be enforced in a non-sectarian manner, because white SJWs maintain status among themselves by buying into Spike Lee blather that only whites can be racist.

    In demographic composition and in the rough proportion to the whole. About 13% of greater Chicago’s population lives in Zone A. Zone A in greater New York consists of the bulk of Neward and Irvington, NJ; disconnected bits of about eight other municipalities in New Jersey and Westchester, a bloc of territory in the north of Manhattan, most of the Bronx, a bloc of territory in Brooklyn, and a swatch of Queens here and there. The most disorderly parts of town are the Bedford-Stuyvesant and Ocean Hill / Brownsville sections of Brooklyn. They have homicide rates 1/2 of those in central Rochester. Harlem nowadays is no more dangerous than Utica.

    As it turns out, the shooter was a sexual harassing engineer who almost got kicked out of the Army Reserve, and was a terminal E-3. Take a look over at This Ain’t Hell: http://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=66743

    Not exactly ‘highly trained’ by the DoD. He was looking for a fight.

    Well that just adds more fuel to “how can you expect the police protect you, when they can’t even save themselves.” It’s like “when seconds count, the police are only minutes away,” but on steroids.
