BET Founder Calls Statue Destroying Protester "Borderline Anarchists"
The founder of Black Entertainment Television is now claiming that the destructive individuals who are tearing down statues are "anarchists." At least someone is getting it right since the claims that tearing down American history as they representative of oppression or slavery are B.S. excuses. I mean they have torn a statue for Thomas Jefferson, Ulysses S. Grant, and they were eyeing Lincoln. So that argument is dead.
"People tearing down statues "have the mistaken assumption that black people are sitting around cheering for them saying 'Oh, my God, look at these white people. They're doing something so important to us. They're taking down the statue of a Civil War general who fought for the South," Johnson said. "You know, black people, in my opinion, black people laugh at white people who do this the same way we laugh at white people who say we got to take off the TV shows."
It's "tantamount to rearranging the deck chairs on a racial Titanic," Johnson told Fox News. "It absolutely means nothing."
“Look, the people who are basically tearing down statues, trying to make a statement are basically borderline anarchists, the way I look at it." They really have no agenda other than the idea we're going to topple a statue," Johnson said."
Earlier this week a Black Lives Matter Activist called for protesters to take down any and all depictions of white Jesus. Tell me how many slaves did Jesus have? I can't remember that part in the bible where Jesus talks about oppressing Black people. Maybe I missed it... was it around the part where he was telling people turn the cheek or maybe when he was dying for our sins on the cross... This is the ridiculous level that these protesters are getting to. If they want to peacefully protest, fine, that is an American right. But looting, vandalism, destruction of property, seizing part of Seattle, these are unacceptable and the police need to start arresting these people asap.
