Who is Black Lives Matter?
Re: Council must take action on Black Lives Matter ( Wokingham.Today, July 2) Would Keith Kerr (KK) and Sharon Harriot-Kerr (SH-K) please educate an ignorant pleb like me. Please can they inform me of the following in a letter to our much-loved Wokingham Paper:
Who are the leaders of Black Lives Matter (BLM) and @Black Lives Matter UK (@BLMUK)? Are they UK citizens?
The US is a foreign country which still has the death penalty in some states. Will KK and SH-K support the death penalty for all of the officers involved in the heinous death of Mr Floyd if that US state allows it? Execution would be a just sentence wouldn't it? How could any reasonable person object to the death penalty in this case?
Who funds the BLM and @BLMUK? What are their political aims and manifestos? How is a common pleb able to hold them to account?
In Wokingham.Today of Thursday, June 11, a Maiden Erlegh Lib Dem borough councillor claimed that Lib Dems are “positively promoting equality”.
Therefore, will KK and SH-K join me in demanding that the Lib Dems, their national leadership and other political parties immediately scrap that vestige of privilege and inequality, the discredited and unelected House of Lords? If other political parties don't want to join in getting rid of their Peers then the Lib Dems could set an example to everybody by scrapping their peers unilaterally immediately.
I am still waiting for a reply from the Lib Dems via The Wokingham Paper. The silence is deafening.
With Lib Dems it seems that words matter more than deeds. Or could it be that they are wedded to unelected privilege and that change is only for others?
When a multi-millionaire racing car driver, who is happy to race his car in countries with deplorable human rights records, who lives as a tax exile in Monaco, who has just had his Mercedes racing car painted black, the colours of the Nazi Waffen SS , who calls for civil unrest in his home country in the name of BLM and @BLMUK, then we plebs need to be told the truth about these organisations.
Are they really a front for, or have they been infiltrated by, hard left Marxist guerrillas piggybacking on the horrendous death of a man in US police custody? We need the truth.
Perhaps KK and SH-K can't handle the truth in a country where, for the moment anyway, we still have freedom of
speech and thought.
