Black Lives Matter Comes Clean

Black Lives Matter got traction from a concocted account of the shooting in Ferguson, Missouri  --  that a white policeman, Darren Wilson, shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, even though Brown had his hands up in surrender.

This was shown to be false.  Wilson's hands weren't up, and he was not trying to surrender.  Instead, the credible evidence showed that, shortly after he robbed a convenience store of practically worthless items, Brown, 6'4" and 292 pounds, had scuffled with Wilson, had tried to wrestle away Wilson's service revolver, and was coming back for more.  Wilson fired in self defense.

As one might expect of a movement whose signature grievance is fabricated, Black Lives Matter has had more than its share of toxicity, particularly as respects its view of law enforcement.

Now, however, BLM has made clear its true political roots:  It's a Communist front with a racial makeover.

Yes, I know that sounds so Fifties.  But the list of demands BLM just released leaves no doubt.  Paul Mirengoff has the story.  The first name that came to my mind was Herbert Aptheker.
