"Black Lives Matter and Michael Bloomberg: the oddest couple?"

"The media have treated the budding partnership between the ascendant Black Lives Matter and the perennially frustrated gun control movement as if it were the most natural thing in the world — probably because both efforts lean left. That alliance, however, is truly unlikely, even nonsensical. Historically, civil rights and gun control have been at odds. The blunt fact is that one side seeks to rein in law enforcement, while the other wishes to give it more power."

It appears Black lives do not matter at all in Chicago, nor do they for that matter in many/most other liberal bastions. So that begs the question do they really matter at all anywhere?

B-4 (allowing an applying the laws of physics, to adjust perception in a self induced state of belief that liberals do with their money as they would do with OPM!)

Black Lives Matter is the "Brown Shirt" intimidation mob movement of the left. Intimidation mobs like to "intimidate" unarmed people! It is not easy to "intimidate" armed people with mob violence. (If "The People" you are trying to intimidate with mob violence are limited to seven bullets out of a firearm that does not have a rapid rate of fire, then "The People" are inadequately armed - against mobs, invasions, riots, and overreaching police state governments - as in the Second Amendment is effectively repealed!) Thus the NY Safe Act and similar unconstitutional laws! I think it is a perfect, logical couple! Disarm all opposition, they will then be easily intimidated into politically correct submission!

Funny, I thought BLM was about restraining cops. Maybe I missed something.

Anyway if BLM is hitching up with Bloomberg, they must not have read or seen this:
