SJWs Freak Out Over “Blue Lives Matter Day” At Minor League Park

The same people who profess their hatred for police officers will have a hissy fit if the cops aren’t there to help them when they’re a victim of crime in seconds

(Yahoo News) A New York Yankees minor-league affiliate says it was surprised by the controversy surrounding a “Blue Lives Matter Day” held at its ballpark Sunday.

Social-justice activists and left-leaning websites criticized the timing of the event, which took place on the anniversary of Michael Brown’s death in Ferguson, Mo., but team officials insist it was simply a coincidence.

Blue Lives Matter NYC, a charity for the families of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty, hosted the fundraising event during a baseball game between the Staten Island Yankees and the Brooklyn Cyclones at the Richmond County Bank Ballpark.

The families of NYPD detectives Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos — who were shot and killed by a lone gunman in Brooklyn in December 2014 — were honored during the ball game. One of Liu’s family members threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

So, yeah, the SJWs, especially the #BlackLivesMatter(only in regards to when the cops shoot an unarmed black criminal, but not when Blacks are shooting each other in the streets with reckless abandon), are having a fit

Kirsten Savali, a cultural critic for the Root, an online magazine on African-American culture, said that with this event the baseball team “unapologetically spits” in the face of the Black Lives Matter movement.

“The Staten Island Yankees wanted to send a statement today, and they did: Black lives don’t matter to them or the Yankees organization,” Savali wrote. “On today of all days, they made it clear that not only is baseball ‘America’s Favorite Pastime,’ but it goes hand in hand with the continued dehumanization of black Americans.”

Who cares what day it was? Why the need to celebrate the killing of a young man, Michael Brown, who stole, assaulted, tried to take a police officer’s gun, then ultimately got the end he was asking for by coming back at a duly sworn police officer? Why support a criminal?

Similarly, Judd Legum, the editor in chief of the liberal blog Think Progress, argued that Blue Lives Matter is insensitive in that it draws attention away from victims of police violence.

“Like the refrain ‘All Lives Matter,’ it is used — online and elsewhere — to undercut the notion that there is a particular problem with police brutality against people of color,” he wrote.

Again, what of all the people of color brutality against people of color? It’s like SJWs don’t want to know about it. Or don’t care. Or approve of it. Baltimore saw its 200th murder for the year, after 211 in 2014. The vast majority of the victims were Black, as were most of the suspects. In Raleigh, 2 of the 3 arrested for the murder of Keyshawn Gregory (a 13 year old out riding around at 3am. Yeah, there’s been some interest in why this kid was cruising, which the local media refuses to ask questions about) are Black, as is Keyshawn.

In violent Ferguson, dozens were arrested after a state of emergency was declared. This was after all the looting and pilfering and gun shots and blocking streets and such. How much violence occurred during the Blue Lives Matter day? Oh, right. None.
