Many on the left would have us believe that the Black Lives Matter movement is bipartisan.
According to them, BLM is only about uplifting the black community and has no ulterior motives and no radical, political agendas.
A BLM activist in Portland, Oregon, one of the few cities still being ravaged by BLM riots, gave the lie to that notion during a recent speech.
In a video shared Monday on Twitter, the activist, speaking through a megaphone, expressed her desire to have police officers strangled in the womb with their own umbilical cords.
Her morbid, unconscionable words were met with applause.
“Your mother’s umbilical cord should have wrapped around your neck and choked you just the way you choked George Floyd, you filthy animal,” she said.
“Not only should that umbilical cord should have wrapped around your neck, it should not have wrapped around your neck once, it should have wrapped around your neck three, two times. … It should have wrapped around your neck so many times, to where you yelled, ‘I can not breathe,'” the woman said.
“You think that you’re a good person because you have a gun. My comrades already know, I tell them every Thursday right there in their face, ‘I know you got a gun, but so do I,'” she said.
“Go ahead and shoot me, I’m a shoot back. Am I lying, my comrades? You shoot me I’m going to shoot you back.”
The clip ends with the activist proclaiming that cops should be hung and electrocuted.
“They need to hang you high, not hang you low. They need to send you to the electric chair and let you fry like a piece of burnt bacon.”
So much for the left not supporting capital punishment.
As horrendous as those last several murderous comments are, the activist’s first few words on the killing of babies reflect a pro-infanticide position that has been embraced by many Democrats over the past couple of years.
In February 2019, congressional Democrats blocked a bill that would have forced doctors to save the life of babies who had survived abortions.
They argued the bill was unnecessary given that it is already illegal to kill a newborn.
However, evidence shows that infanticide does, in fact, happen. According to a state Department of Health report, three babies died in Minnesota in 2018 alone after being born alive following failed abortions.
The left-wing’s pro-infanticide logic tracks. If a baby is just a bundle of cells while it’s still in the mother’s womb, that same baby doesn’t magically have a right to live one second later when it’s sitting on the operating table.
So the passionate activist in Portland wasn’t some crazed radical out of touch with the mainstream left. She was merely sharing some of the tenets of the Democratic Party.
