Ahmaud Arbery’s Father Throws a Wrench into the Race-Hate Industry, Says ‘All Lives Matter’

Published

on

My latest in PJ Media:

The killers of Ahmaud Arbery have been convicted of murder, demonstrating once again that Leftists’ narrative of “systemic racism” and “white supremacy” is false, hollow and divisive. After the Rittenhouse acquittal, numerous prominent people made paranoid, hysterical claims that white people can commit murder without penalty while black people are brutalized and framed for crimes, ignoring the fact that a black man, Andrew Coffee IV, was acquitted of murder on the same day Rittenhouse was also acquitted, and on the same grounds of self-defense. The conviction of Arbery’s killers was another torpedo in the establishment narrative, and then on Tuesday, Ahmaud Arbery’s father, Marcus Arbery, made matters even worse by taking up what Leftists insist is that notorious slogan of racists everywhere, “All Lives Matter.” Is Marcus Arbery a white supremacist? The mind reels.

Arbery said: “For real, all lives matter. Not just black children, we don’t want to see nobody go through this. I don’t want to see no daddy watch his kid get shot down like that. It’s all our problem. It’s all our problem. So hey, let’s keep fighting. Let’s keep doing it and making this place a better place for all human beings. All human beings. Everybody! Love everybody! All human beings need to be treated equally….Today is a good day.”

The best part of Arbery’s statement, however, wasn’t even so much what Arbery said, as great as it was, but the fact that he said these things while standing in front of the notorious race-hate entrepreneur Al Sharpton. Sharpton’s wordless response to Arbery’s words is fascinating: he first watches Arbery warily, and then begins to nod and mutter “That’s right,” all the while looking slightly pained. At one point, Sharpton begins to look directly at the camera, as if hoping against hope that maybe the moment wasn’t being captured on video. But it was.

Sharpton struck back at those who affirmed that “All Lives Matter” in June 2020 on English broadcaster Piers Morgan’s show. Morgan asked him, “You see people, as they have been doing in America and here, ‘Well, white lives matter, too. All lives matter.’ What is the correct response to that?” It’s noteworthy that Morgan didn’t ask Sharpton for his response to that, but for the “correct” one, taking for granted that Sharpton was an impartial oracle dispensing the correct and acceptable opinions that the masses were allowed to hold. Morgan also gave the question a racist spin by focusing on the phrase “White Lives Matter,” which is actually just as misleading as “Black Lives Matter” in singling out one group at the expense of others.

There is more. Read the rest here.
