HuffPo Author: Saying “All Lives Matter” an Act of Terrorism

Writing for the Huffington Post, writer Shea Watts wonders aloud how the United States could possibly condemn ISIS when the US has been committing terrorism for hundreds of years.

His article, “Looking Within: The Convenient Amnesia of American Terrorism,” argues that Americans have perpetrated terrorism for centuries and that we must face these facts or else we are hypocrites for condemning the terror attacks in Paris last week.

How much blood is on our hands?  Watts asks. “What a shame that we, as a nation, have not looked upon our sins. We have not asked forgiveness for the the lives and bodies and communities we have destroyed. These unreconciled acts of the past continue to manifest themselves in our society.”

Hypocritical whites and Christians have terrorized black people for hundreds of years. African Americans are, in fact, still subjects of terrorism.

“We live in a country where the dead body of a black teenager can be left in the street for hours, where police are recorded, time after time, beating, shooting, and mistreating blacks, but are seldom charged for their crimes,” he writes.

“How convenient is it that so many act as if these acts of terror never happened or pretend that this degree of hate does not exist?” Watts asks.

“Do we realize how these terrorist acts are reaffirmed and even recommitted by not only our actions, but also by our words?†he says, stating that words can ‘recommit acts of terror. At the very least, this should make one pause and think before one says, ALL LIVES MATTER.”

Watts concludes, “So before you make a statement on race, educate yourself on the history of American terrorism.” We must come to terms with our own violence against our own people before we can condemn ISIS and the likes of them.”

Does the author have the guts to name the groups whose lives don’t matter to her?

The HuffPoo never ceases to entertain me with their moonbat analysis of what is wrong with everybody else but them. It is not right to laugh at the demented, but, I can not help it.

Hey, Shea Watts, “All lives matter.”

If that terrifies you, “Bite me.”

So we have people like this. Baby butchery. Warmists that want to exterminate people for mother Gaia.

Anyone else think we can survive happily as one nation?

The KKK was founded by Democrats and went after Jews,Catholics, and Republicans, not just black people. It WAS terrorist and it waged an insurgency for 100 years after the Civil War.

Or to put it in Iraq terms, the Civil War took 100 years to end.

It is literally true that reality is malleable and plastic to a liberal. It is also true that he who changes the meaning of words and phrases gets to determine the outcome of the discussion.
