Chicago BLM Protesters Are Now Claiming That ‘Looting Is Reparations’ (VIDEO)

Written by Wes Walker on August 12, 2020

They’ve finally gotten so radical that even Chicago’s Mayor is condemning them as criminals.

“Not many of those cases were prosecuted to the fullest extent,” Brown said. “These looters, these thieves, these criminals are emboldened by no consequences in the criminal system. They get released, many charges get dropped and so they feel emboldened to do it more.”

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot agreed that what happened had little do with a protest.

“These were not poor people engage in petty theft to feed themselves and their families. This was straight up felony criminal conduct,” she said. “This was an assault on our city.” –Newsweek

Oh, really?

And who, exactly, do you suppose has been emboldening these criminals all this time?

The BLM protesters (or, if you prefer the more accurate terminology, Marxist agitators) the Mayor has been so happy to praise all this time see things a little differently than she does.

Ariel Atkins, a BLM organizer, called the looting ‘reparations’.

‘I don’t care if someone decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy’s or a Nike store, because that makes sure that person eats,’ Atkins said. ‘That makes sure that person has clothes.

‘Anything they wanted to take, they can take it because these businesses have insurance.’

…The man whose actions sparked the unrest, 20-year-old Latrell Allen, was charged with attempted murder of police.

Allen, who had previous arrests for child endangerment, domestic battery and burglary, was confronted by police on Sunday afternoon and fled, turning around and shooting multiple rounds at officers as he fled. He was shot and injured by police, returning fire, and rumor then spread that a child had been killed by officers. —DailyMail

Tyler LaRiviere, a photojournalist for the Chicago Sun was live-tweeting the gathering of people in front of the police headquarters on Monday. He tweeted, ‘Heard that a half a dozen are being held with Disorderly Conduct and 1 with Unlawful Use of a Fire Arm, here at District 1.’

Oh really? Does Ms. Atkins not lock her home at night? Or is it just OTHER people’s personal property that she considers up for grabs.

We live in a world where Herman Cain was the son of a ‘domestic worker’ and worked his way up to being a candidate for President, where Thomas Sowell came from poverty and became a leading scholar, where Obama, raised by a single mom, rose to become President. You could go on down the line with Clarence Thomas and I couldn’t begin to imagine HOW many rose-from-obscurity stories that embody the American Dream.

The opportunity is out there, especially for people whose understanding of the world around them is properly calibrated.

But if we’re all sold the same sad tale about being trapped in an oppressive vortex beyond our control because of choices that someone ELSE has made that cripples our life?

Then anyone who buys it is well and truly screwed. You’re trapped in a mental prison. Those opportunities won’t matter, because you won’t believe they’re for you.

These agitators aren’t interested in putting in the reps that it takes to accomplish what the successful among us have accomplished.

They are here to take it by force.

And like idiots, many of our political and cultural ‘leaders’ are praising this movement.

How long before the revolution eats them, too?

This is no spontaneous show of outrage over Floyd’s death.

We are watching the ‘chucking bricks’ and ‘burning cities’ that Bernie Bro organizers were talking about long before the Chinavirus ever came to town.
