After Charlottesville, Black Lives Matter Issues Chilling New Demand

By

Allen West| After the violence that took place over the weekend in Charlottesville, racial tensions in our country are higher than ever — a fact that’s proven by the countless protests that are going down across the country.

Protesters are tearing down confederate statues and doing their best to erase this part of American history from existence — an impossibility to be sure, but nonetheless they continue to try.

Clearly, liberal organizations like Black Lives Matter do not understand the full scope of free speech, nor the importance of remembering history so its mistakes are not repeated.

Clearly, liberal organizations like Black Lives Matter do not understand the full scope of free speech, nor the importance of remembering history so its mistakes are not repeated.

According to The Daily Caller:

The official Twitter account of Black Lives Matter and the organization’s Chicago branch have announced that all Confederate groups, flags and statues “should be illegal” in the United States.

Government officials should look to Germany’s decision to outlaw “the Nazis, their symbols, salutes” and flags after World War II, the racial activist group says.
The Chicago chapter of Black Lives Matter issued two tweets on Monday afternoon related to Confederate symbolism.

Limiting the First Amendment rights of individuals from any group opens the door for the government to use that same power and authority on you and your beliefs sometime in the future, and you can almost guarantee that’s precisely what will happen.
