The groups were Soros-funded, and it's no surprise that they disappeared after the Obama administration ended. The Democrats, you may remember, were caught on tape arranging fights and trying to start violent incidents at Trump rallies. And that's just the stuff we know about. They were doing worse behind closed doors. Know the collectivos in Venezuela? Soros wanted to start that here.
There are only two times in the past eight years that I said "okay, that's too far" to the big conservative outlets. The first was Fast and Furious. When that story first came out, Rush Limbaugh said "don't doubt me." I doubted. I knew Obama was a bad leader, but I didn't think he was that terrible. I was wrong about that.
The second time was about BLM. There was a writer at Breitbart who explained it. He said look, I used to be a left wing activist, I know how they operate. Occupy failed to divide people along class lines. The next thing liberals will try to do is divide people along race lines and start racial violence. I looked at that and thought, there's absolutely no evidence of this. Well, I'm sure I don't need to explain how that turned out. Shortly after that, the liberals were back with BLM and it started when they edited that phony Trayvon Martin audio. It got worse with riots, and it was the same exact paid agitators as the ones behind Occupy. That Breitbart writer called it.
All of this stuff was paid outrage from the left meant to divide our nation, for Barack Obama and the Democrats' personal gain. Glad they're no longer in charge.
Media coverage dropped substantially when local leaders were found advocating the murder of specifically white people to a cheering crowd.
Calling BS on that. Such stories would actually motivate the media to cover it more, as it would boost ratings as compared to peaceful demonstrations.
Seems like, for the most part, BLM stopped getting covered nearly as much once Trump became President. At least with Obama, there was some hope of reform and change from within. With the current administration, we already know that they will double down on bad policies for how police function.
people got sick of the blacklivesonly movement when they started going after other groups (even non whites) that werent appeasing black members enough.
Pretty much this. They started going after everything and everyone in an insufferable and juvenile manner. Disrupting Bernie Sanders events, ruining the Toronto gay pride, hogging the attention the women's march and so on. They came in, trashed vehicles, cursed the police and... that was it. They had no long-term plan, no intelligent debate, no one was taking responsibility for anything.
