Carlson’s offense? He exercised his free speech rights and stated his carefully reasoned opinion.
Consider this quote from the video.
Here is the new rule, and it defines everything. You are not allowed to question Black Lives Matters in any way. FULL STOP!
The effort to silence Carlson demonstrates he spoke truly. Please listen to the video. Then stop, and take a few moments to reflect upon what Carlson said. Carlson’s true crime is that he criticized lying Democrats, chicken Republicans and the cowardly and foolish wealthy among us. Black Lives Matter? Not so much. He just said Black Lives Matter is not about protecting black lives. Defunding the police is about replacing the police with supporters of the Democratic Party.
Want to know what the blacks need from you and me? Has nothing to do with race. Listen to Black Community Broken by Broken Homes: Tim DeMoss and Garry Cobb (christianoutlook.com). Hear former Philadelphia Eagle Garry “G” Cobb to discuss how many black men get involved in gangs and drugs as a result of fatherless homes and poor schools. His explanation of what we erroneously call “systemic racism” and what we need to do about it is surprisingly lucid and clear. We don’t need a government solution. We don’t need a race-based solution. What government has done created the problem. We need to encourage fathers to stay with their families and help raise their children. We need to make certain children learn to read.
