Earlier today I blogged about the #blacklivesmatter marchers who chanted about pigs in blankets and frying them in bacon….a crude allegory celebrating violence against police.
But did you know that, Saturday morning, there was a march in Birmingham, Alabama – a multi-racial “All Lives Matter” march organized by White conservative Glenn Beck and Black Birmingham Pastor Jim Lowe – which generated a crowd of over 20,000 – possibly the single largest march in that city since the 1963 civil rights marches?
From Joe Songer\’s article at al.com:
Led by conservative activist and talk show host Glenn Beck, more than 20,000 people chanting “All Lives Matter” marched the historic civil rights route from Kelly Ingram Park to Birmingham City Hall this morning.
“It\’s about taking our church out in the streets,” Beck said. He said marchers came from as far away as China, Dubai and the Netherlands.
Actor Chuck Norris, a conservative activist known for his martial arts, action movies and TV show “Walker, Texas Ranger,” marched about two rows behind Beck. Alveda King, a niece of civil rights activist the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., marched in the front row. Bishop Jim Lowe, pastor of the predominantly black Guiding Light Church in Birmingham, co-organized the march with Beck and marched with him at the front. As a child, Lowe attended Sixteenth Street Baptist Church, where the march started, a headquarters church for the civil rights movement in Birmingham. Lowe and his sisters were in the church when a KKK bomb blew up the church and killed four little girls on Sept. 15, 1963.
I\’m betting you didn\’t know about this until now. And it\’s a pretty good bet, too, because mainstream media, in its continuing effort to suppress any racial news that is not sympathetic to the most leftward agitators, declined to report on it. Google “Birmingham All Lives Matter march” and look at the first few pages – see for yourself.
You\’ll find that, other than local coverage, not one story at ABC. Or CBS. Or NBC. Or the New York Times. Or the Washington Post. Or the LA Times…..etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. ad infinitum, ad nauseam.
And, yes, these are the people who call themselves “journalists” – and who look down on the venues which did report about this march.
Pathetic does not begin to describe them.
