Kamala Harris Praises BLM Protests to 'Keep Cops in Check'

(RightWing.org) – Democratic vice presidential hopeful Kamala Harris piled heaps of praise on the Black Lives Matter movement during a Sept. 25 speech at the NAACP’s national convention.

Harris claimed that American progress, particularly in the realm of civil rights, never occurred “without a fight,” adding that the current protests serve as an “essential component” of change and that they help keep the police “in check.”

She concluded her remarks claiming the BLM movement has become the “most significant agent for change” within America’s criminal justice system.

Ironically, her praise comes in the wake of months of racial and social unrest due to the death of George Floyd, a Black man, while in police custody. Many of those so-called “peaceful protests” have turned violent. Two days before her speech, two police officers were shot in Louisville, Kentucky, amid massive BLM “protests.”

Her presumed indifference to Blue lives comes as a stark reminder of the fact Democrats, and Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden, in particular, have no plan to heal America’s racial divide.

On the flip side, President Donald Trump announced the creation of a multi-tiered “Platinum Plan” promoting Black economic empowerment during his own Sept. 25 speech. Additionally, in recent days, he discussed prosecuting the Ku Klux Klan as a terrorist organization and making Juneteenth, aka Emancipation Day, a national holiday.

Democrats like to talk about problems and forward-thinking; Republicans, like the president, focus their attention on viable solutions.
