Liberals turn on Black Lives Matter after ’embarrassing’ ACLU protest, call for students’ suspension

Democrats have embraced the alt-left over the last several years, but have particularly empowered them in response to Donald Trump’s presidency–hoping the fanatical fervor of group’s like Antifa and Black Lives Matter will give them the political impetus necessary to achieve their agenda even in the face of significant Republican majorities at the federal and state levels.

But Democrats are at last experiencing buyer’s remorse as they lose control of their zealots. They’re beginning to realize many of these #RESISTANCE types are closet anarchists who will gladly turn on the liberal establishment if it gives them further opportunity to make chaos.

Faculty at the College of William and Mary are in panic after Black Lives Matter protesters arrived to shut down an address given by an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) speaker, as reported by the Washington Examiner.

The incident has sparked immediate backlash among the liberal community against Black Lives Matter.

New York Times columnist called the behavior “embarrassing.” A George Washington University law professor called for the student protesters’ suspension.

Annie Brown, a former William and Mary student known for her liberal views on female sexuality, said “This is a slippery slope. If we continue to undermine the right of individuals to peacefully gather and share their perspectives in intelligent, well-informed conversations, we are limiting our own ability to gather information, make informed strategies for change and also limit our freedoms to speak out in the future.”

The speaker herself, Claire Gastañaga, stated “a public college like William and Mary has an obligation to protect the freedom of the speaker to speak.” Gastañaga serves as executive director of the ACLU of Virginia.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson tackled the event head-on in his program, debating Black Lives Matter-aligned New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams.

Williams repeatedly defended the “free speech” rights of the Black Lives Matter protesters while entirely missing the point Carlson made: free speech does not mean you get to violate other people’s free speech.

The members of the local Black Lives Matter targeted the left-leaning ACLU due to the organization’s role in helping “white supremacists” in Charlottseville, VA obtain a permit for the rally that ultimately ended in several injuries and three deaths.

The ACLU is on the left side of every issue. Right now, they’re in the middle of suing the Trump administration for not forcing employers to buy condoms and birth control pills for their employees.

But because of ACLU’s actions in Charlottseville, an instance in which they put partisanship aside to protect the free speech rights of their adversaries, Black Lives Matter decided an alliance is no longer possible.

The crowd of Black Lives Matter hecklers interrupted Gastañaga’s remarks with chants of “liberalism is white supremacy” and “ACLU, you protect Hitler too!” in a demonstration that lasted an hour.

This latest instance of far-left rabble rousing mirrors the recent heckling at a Nancy Pelosi event by so-called “DREAMers,” who were angry at the Democratic leader for allegedly working with President Trump on a plan to give young illegal aliens a legal status.

Of course, liberal intellectuals only care about free speech when it’s their speakers being shut down. There was conveniently none of this backlash when the University of California Berkeley canceled its Free Speech Week and Milo Yiannopoulos event due to the dangers posed by Antifa.

It’s hard to feel sorry for leftists who are now being devoured by monsters of their own creation. Many conservatives are sitting back in enjoyment as they watch the Democratic party implode.

ALERT ALERT

Schumer Refusing To Help Border Kids
Wants To Hurt Trump Instead

The controversy over how underage illegal aliens are handled at the border is heating up — but Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer just rejected a good-faith proposal to fix the problem.

A growing number of people on both sides of the political aisle have expressed concern for border separations, which occur when migrants are caught breaking the law along the border while they have children with them, or when the often exploitative relationship between adults and minors at the border cannot be established.

A vast amount of mis-information and outright lying about the situation has muddied the water, making it tough to understand the situation in its entirety.

Both liberals and conservatives, however, have voiced their support for a better system that results in fewer family separations, and even President Donald Trump has indicated that he is willing to stand with Congress if they change the law.

Shockingly, however, it looks like one of the most well-known faces of the Democratic party isn’t willing to take action, and is instead playing politics in order to attack Trump.

On Tuesday, Schumer openly rejected a Republican proposal to fix the immigrant separation problem at the legislative level, and instead whined about the president.

“There are so many obstacles to legislation and when the president can do it with his own pen, it makes no sense,” Schumer stated, according to The Hill.

“Legislation is not the way to go here when it’s so easy for the president to sign it,” he complained.

Democrats Reject Bill To Keep Families Together At Border – Schumer Says He “Wants To Keep Focus On Trump”

Think about that for a second: The president’s job is to execute existing laws. The legislature’s job is to change or enact new laws when needed.

A senator elected to the legislature for exactly that purpose is now refusing to do his job and pass legislation, while simultaneously blaming the president for enforcing the existing laws, as he is sworn to do.

If there was any doubt that Schumer and the Democrats are playing politics instead of trying to actually help migrant families, the senator made his intentions clear: Obstruct and point fingers at Trump.

“Asked if that meant Democrats would not support a bill backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to keep immigrant families together while seeking asylum on the U.S. border, Schumer said they want to keep the focus on Trump,” The Hill explained.

Make no mistake: The Democrats dragging their feet and refusing to back legislation already drafted by Republicans will prolong the problems at the border.

“Schumer’s opposition to a legislative fix means there likely won’t be a quick end to the emotional images of immigrant children being separated from their families unless Trump backs down,” The Hill reported.

“Democrats want to keep the pressure on Trump instead of having Congress assume responsibility for the growing crisis,” the news outlet continued.

Again: There’s a solution ready to go, with Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell ready to support it. Yet Democrats like Schumer apparently believe that scoring political points against Trump is more important than helping broken families on the border, even as their own liberal voters demand action.

“Congress alone can fix it,” stated Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Monday.

“I support, and all of the senators of the Republican conference support, a plan that keeps families together,” McConnell agreed.

“We need to fix the problem and it requires a legislative solution,” he said.

Yet Democrats refuse to budge.

This “do nothing but blame Trump” response from the left should prove beyond a doubt that all the tears and hand-wringing from liberals are disingenuous. They’re for show. If it was truly about helping innocent kids at the border, Schumer and his fellow Democrats could act right now.

If their priority was actually to solve the problem and help broken families, scoring points against Trump shouldn’t even be a concern. Even if they believed he was being stubborn on the issue, they could take the high road by doing their jobs and supporting bipartisan legislation.

They don’t, because solving the problem was never their goal. They are playing political games and using devastated children as pawns, while pretending that the president is the monster.

That’s sick… and the American people need to see exactly who is doing the obstruction.

SLAVEHOLDER??

Washington Post Compares
Jeff Sessions To Slaveholder’

The Washington Post compared Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “slaveholders” after he quoted the Bible on Thursday while discussing his department’s policy of prosecuting all illegal immigrants who cross the border.

Sessions made the statement during a speech to law enforcement officers in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

WaPo ran a story entitled “Sessions cites Bible passage used to defend slavery in defense of separating immigrant families” by general assignment editor Keith McMillan and religion reporter Julie Zauzmer on Friday.

Rather than detailing the statistics Sessions cited in the speech that explain the immigration policy, the story quoted John Fea, a history professor at Messiah College in Pennsylvania.

“This is the same argument that Southern slaveholders and the advocates of a Southern way of life made,” Fea said.

Sessions spent much of the speech discussing the numbers behind current immigration policy, including separating families at the Southwest border.

“I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13, to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes,” Sessions said.

“Orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves. Consistent and fair application of the law is in itself a good and moral thing, and that protects the weak and protects the lawful.”

“The previous administration wouldn’t prosecute aliens if they came with children,” Sessions said.

“It was de-facto open borders if you came with children. The results were unsurprising. More and more illegal aliens started showing up at the border with children.”

Sessions laid out the numbers in the speech.

“In 2013, fewer than 15,000 family units were apprehended crossing our border illegally between ports of entry in dangerous areas of the country,” he said.

“Five years later, it was more than 75,000, a five-fold increase in five years. It didn’t even have to be their child that was brought, it could be anyone. You can imagine that this created a lot of danger.”

The U.S. has the “opportunity” to fix its broken immigration system now, Sessions said.

“I believe that’s it’s moral, right, just and decent that we have a lawful system of immigration,” he said. “The American people have been asking for it.”
