Now that the dust has settled in Dallas and we are getting a clearer picture of the shooter, I want to share a few thoughts about what transpired last night:
1.) First, as everyone has heard by now, the shooter Micah Xavier Johnson, or Micah X. as we have dubbed him, was motivated by the police shootings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge and Philando Castile in Minnesota, and he was reportedly “angry” about the Black Lives Matter movement, which he apparently identified with. He told the police that he wanted to kill White people, especially White police officers.
2.) Second, Micah X. was evidently some kind of Black Nationalist of the vanguardist variety. Hopefully, what happened in Dallas will put an end to the silly talk among White Nationalists of handing over vast swathes of the South to these people, or forming “alliances” with groups like the New Black Panthers.
3.) Third, in his press conference yesterday evening, Obama demonized the police and claimed the criminal justice system is institutionally racist and biased against blacks. If our “rhetoric” on the internet created a “climate of hate” that led to Charleston, then his demonization of the police as “racist” led to Dallas.
4.) Fourth, the Confederate flag was blamed for Dylann Roof’s actions in Charleston. Now that Micah X. has targeted White police officers on racial grounds in Dallas, what should the White community demand?
5.) Fifth, this is a good illustration of the damage that vantardist violence can do to any cause. The Black Lives Matter crowd were on a roll after Baton Rouge and Minnesota. Dallas has completely changed the Narrative.
6.) The Black Lives Matter movement owns Dallas. As the Lieutenant Governor of Texas pointed out, what happened in Dallas is their baby. The liberal media never fails to blame us whenever some nut like Glenn Miller lashes out. These protesters were out there demonstrating against the cops. They have been seen all over the country screaming things like “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon” and fomenting hate against law enforcement.
7.) Remember the time Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders debated whether “black lives matter” or “all lives matter”? Trump would be crazy not to point that out and connect Hillary to Black Lives Matter.
8.) The Democratic Party officially endorsed the Black Lives Matter movement.
9.) As of 1:04 PM, the Hatewatch has yet to chime in. Is murdering White cops on explicitly racial grounds a “hate crime”? Don’t hold your breath.
10.) One last thing: the same crowd of black thugs in Tupelo have been threatening to kill White people which is we will be prepared to defend ourselves. The League demonstration in Tupelo on June 30th will be a solidarity with law enforcement event.

Should Amazon stop selling it?
