Another Black Lives Matter race riot in the United States. This time, it’s in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Because a black man, Sylville Smith, was shot dead by police.
Except: Smith was a serial criminal, who wouldn’t drop a handgun when police ordered him to.
And: the police officer who shot Smith was black himself.
Yet the street thugs of Black Lives Matter rioted, burning down businesses — including many owned by black Americans.
This isn’t about racial equality. This is about demonizing the police, creating racial tensions where there are none, and distracting from real political issues that Democrats would rather not talk about.
That's why I went to Milwaukee. To find out what's really going on at the Black Lives Matter riots — who’s behind it, what the facts are, and, just as important, why the mainstream media keeps treating these street thugs like civil rights activists.
I wanted to see with my own eyes what it’s like on the ground in Milwaukee — and to talk to ordinary black Americans about the Black Lives Matter paramilitary movement, and if it really represents black America today. I don’t think it does — but I want to find out.
