Ever try to prove how peaceful your movement is by threatening a military coup if you don’t get your way? Welcome to the insane world of the Black Lives Matter movement.
They criticize us for saying “All Lives Matter” – yet considering they’ve managed to claim the lives of at least eight police officers in the past two weeks, it should be obvious why we’re reminding them of that fact. It’s not like we’d expect less from a movement that draws inspiration from convicted cop killer Assata Shakur.
The failed coup in Turkey that killed more than 200 people and wounded thousands more could be coming to America — if Donald Trump is elected and #BlackLivesMatter activist and Daily News columnist Shaun King has his way.
King tweeted this weekend that the U.S. would suffer the same fate as Turkey if the soon-to-be Republican nominee won the presidency.
“If Donald Trump becomes President, you are fooling yourself if you think we’re far from having a coup our own selves,” King tweeted. “I’m dead serious.”
This isn’t the first time King has said a President Trump could lead to violence. In a May 9 article in the Daily News, the activist stated that anarchists might vote for the billionaire because his presidency would result in a civil war.
It’s strange that a movement that claims they want to fight injustice peacefully has a spokesman who repeatedly fantasizing about civil wars and uprisings which would lead to death and destruction.
Personally, I don’t understand King’s beef with Trump. Donald Trump is just as black as he is.
