Missouri woman Peggy Hubbard has had enough. Following an incident in St. Louis involving a young black man and the police, she made a video message for #BlackLivesMatter and it has gone viral.
Dave Urbanski of The Blaze:
Black mother Peggy Hubbard notes on her Facebook page that she’s from St. Louis.
And even though she now lives north of the area’s racial turmoil, watching and listening to Hubbard’s profane-but-precise video takedown of Black Lives Matter protesters is to witness a woman who loves her hometown and hates the choices some people are making there.
First Hubbard contrasted how the Black Lives Matter contingent reacted when a 9-year-old girl was fatally shot doing homework on her mother’s bed and the next night when an 18-year-old was fatally shot by police who said he pointed a gun at them.
Then she asked, “Last night, who do you think they protested for? The thug. The criminal.”
Then Hubbard let loose.
“You say black lives matter?” she asked before bringing the little girl back into the argument. “Her life mattered. Her dreams mattered. Her future mattered. Her promises mattered. It mattered.”
Noting how she turned in her own son who’s now doing time, Hubbard defended police who are a main target of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Here’s the video. Language warning, lots of curse words.
Hubbard is making the same point that AACONS made in a recent post on this site.
Dr. Ben Carson also recently wrote about #BlackLivesMatter in a column for USA Today:
Ben Carson: #BlackLivesMatter misfire
The idea that disrupting and protesting Bernie Sanders speeches will change what is wrong in America is lunacy. The “BlackLivesMatter” movement is focused on the wrong targets, to the detriment of blacks who would like to see real change and to the benefit of its powerful white liberal funders using the attacks on Sanders for political purposes that mean nothing for the problems that face our community.
The notion that some lives might matter less than others is meant to enrage. That anger is distracting us from what matters most. We’re right to be angry, but we have to stay smart.
Of course, the protesters are right that racial policing issues exist and some rotten policemen took actions that killed innocent people. Those actions were inexcusable and they should be prosecuted to deter such acts in the future.
Last night, Carson discussed his column and the issues it addressed with Megyn Kelly:
