Apparently Black Lives Matter forgot that some people can read. After their support began to show sharp decline, they removed the “What We Believe” page from their website.
This did not say they supported alternate family structure. They wanted to disrupt the nuclear family structure of others. Keep in mind that it is precisely this disruption of the black nuclear family that has driven black men out of their children’s lives into gangs and kept black women barefoot and pregnant — both mired in inner city “plantation” poverty.
Some time ago, the BLM website removed pictures of their founders in communist guerilla garb and substituted Hollywood glamor photos. Removal of what they believe from their website doesn’t mean they have stopped believing it.
Rosenberg was sentenced to 58 years in prison on the weapons and explosives charges. She spent 16 years in prison until her sentence was commuted by President Bill Clinton on January 20, 2001, his final day in office. Her commutation produced a wave of criticism by police and New York elected officials.
After her release, Rosenberg continued her work as an anti-prison activist and as of 2020, Rosenberg sits as vice chair of the board of Thousand Currents, which acts as a fiscal sponsor of Black Lives Matter.
I know that bias is subject to interpretation, but USA Today’s numerous comments such as “Israel has drawn condemnation…” and “U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon said the Israeli shelling was ‘outrageous’ and ‘unjustifiable’.” They also use “man in the street” comments from such experts as Gehad Sukker. (Really? Gehad Sukker? Read the article. I didn’t make that up, but I am not sure USA Today didn’t. If Palestini parents really name their kids something like Jehad Sucker, who can be surprised when they send them into buildings that Israel has announced it plans to blow up!)
I started looking into who wrote the articles and lo and behold, the most consistent turns out to be Yousef Al-Helou. Turns out Al-Helou is a Palistinian and active supporter of the pro Hamas Palestine Solidarity Campaign and (spoiler alert) blatantly anti Israel.
He has the right to his position, but where is USA Today’s journalistic integrity? Why does it print these types of articles daily with no attempt at balance with pro-Israeli information?
Hamas started the current crisis by shooting rockets at Israel. Hamas claims that they started bombing Israel because Israel and others are blockading Gaza’s borders. Israel is blockading the Gaza strip because Hamas was using food and other humanitarian transports to bring in rockets and other weaponry to attack Israel. It seems to me that Israel has a point.
Where is the U.N on decrying Hamas for escalating the situation to violence? Where is Ban Ki Moon in condemning Hamas for hiding behind Palestinians, using hospitals and schools to launch rocket attacks on Israel. Isn’t it at least as outrageous and unjustifiable that Hamas won’t let Palestinians leave public buildings they know are marked for destruction? Just because Israel intercepts the Hamas rockets, does that somehow make Hamas less the instigator?
