(Tea Party PAC) – If you’ve been paying attention to the news — and how can you not with it plastered everywhere on social media and across television — you’ve probably noticed how the en vogue thing for Black Lives Matter protesters to do in order to get their message to the masses is to either destroy private property, tear down statues, or graffiti all over public places.
This, in most places around the country, is known as vandalism, and if the individuals doing this were white conservatives, they’d be called as such, along with having a racist label slapped on them, and they’d be in jail and their lives ruined. But not if you’re with BLM or some other radical left-wing group. Then it’s cool, hip activism.
Well, one couple in Martinez, California had enough of the insanity and decided to paint over some graffiti left behind by BLM protesters and boy did it really make progressives angry.
Check out the details from BizPacReview:
A couple in Martinez, California drew mixed reaction on Twitter after painting over Black Lives Matter street graffiti in front of the county courthouse.
The brouhaha erupted on Saturday, when a woman painted over “Black Lives Matter” signage while her partner/husband stood guard and videotaped the incident (presumably for evidence in case they get jumped by thugs).
While the woman paints, onlookers heckle the couple.
The man says to one heckler: “We’re sick of this [false] narrative of police brutality, the narrative of oppression, the narrative of [systemic] racism. It’s a lie.”
An unidentified woman off-camera replies, “This is racist!”
The man pointed to the “Black Lives Matter” street graffiti and said, “THIS is racist.”
A woman responds: “You can’t be that stupid, can you?”
“No, but you can be,” the man retorts.
The woman painting over the BLM street graffiti says to the mob: “Keep this sh*t in f*cking New York. This is not happening in my town!”
The city of Martinez, California is 75% white and 3% black.
As you can see, the Black Lives Matter movement is really doing a fantastic job of uniting us all together and creating a harmonious atmosphere among people of all colors, aren’t they?
Again, as has probably been stated a million times over, the left is doing nothing to combat racism or to stamp out racial tensions and improve relations between individuals from different walks of life. All they are doing is causing us all to hyper focus on our differences rather than on what makes us all the same: being made in the image of God.
We have a shared human experience to draw from, but this is ignored when all that matters is the outward appearance of a person. This couple isn’t racist. They are just sick and tired of being made out to be the bad guys by the mainstream media, simply because they are white, which is a form of racism in and of itself.
Responding to a man in a yellow shirt aggressively in his face, the husband yells: “All lives matter, you f*cken punk!”
Why don’t you guys learn about history? The Emancipation Proclamation. Abraham Lincoln.”
One heckler shouted these bigoted statements: “You’re a f*cken colonizer! You’re not from f*cken America! Your ancestors aren’t from here!”
Presumably, the heckler meant that the husband’s ancestors from hundreds of years ago came from Europe. Um, and slaves came from Africa. Does that make their descendants any less “American?”
Remember that the Left insists that illegal aliens who unlawfully sneak into the United States are real “Americans.”
This mob of radical left-wingers took down the couple’s license plate and then reported them to local police who are now investigating the incident. BLM protesters then repainted the graffiti. Notice how it’s perfectly acceptable to vandalize property if you’re on the left, but not if you are on the right. Conservatives do it and get investigated. Leftists do it and get a free pass.
The incident drew mixed reaction on social media. Predictably, supporters of the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement slammed the couple as racist “vandals” for painting over street graffiti.
These same people have repeatedly refused to condemn the mass vandalism of left-wing thugs tearing down statues in Democrat-run cities around the country.
Yelling “there is no racism” and Trump’s slogan “Keep America Great,”

The mere idea that America might care about Black people is too much for them.pic.twitter.com/qLA0MK2JsW

https://t.co/kZLlkOwSCC Look at how much different the reporting is when it's a BLM mural destroyed instead of monuments, peoples stores or homes. "Vandals deface BLM Mural". And they want any information on these ruthless "white" criminals. Full investigation underway

The hypocrisy is so strongly on display here it’s flabbergasting that those in the BLM don’t understand why people are getting so tired of them and their nonsense. Look, no one is saying racism as a whole doesn’t exist. Of course it does. Plenty of individual people are racist. In fact, a lot of folks in BLM are racist against whites. Lots of blacks are racist against Mexicans. Mexicans are racist toward them too.
Hate is sickening and disgusting no matter what shape it takes. It needs to be put to death. Immediately and that has to be done at the heart level.
However, systemic racism is a lie perpetrated by the radical left. There’s no systemic racism. The Civil Rights movement ended that long ago. We’ve only continued to improve on that front ever since. Most people have moved beyond racism in our society. Let’s not cause it to spring up again with all of this hate and violence.
