Black Lives Matter has called for Joe Biden to “demilitarize” the police, claiming black communities are being “terrorized” more under the current president than Donald Trump.
In a Tuesday Twitter thread, the Black Lives Matter organization called for Biden to end the 1033 program, otherwise known as the Law Enforcement Support Office, which allows for the transfer of military surplus equipment to local law enforcement agencies…..
Biden is currently sending more military equipment to our neighborhoods than Trump did. You read that right. Our communities are being terrorized at a greater rate than they had been under Trump.

This is an inconvenient narrative for the establishment, which I suspect is trying to build a case for UN intervention under “responsibility to protect” as they did in Libya. Perhaps this is why they’re raising the tension, to foment violence. It kinda deflates the democrats’ “moral authority” wrt institutional racism, as if that limp ballon needed any more deflating.
