Boom: Ted Cruz Makes Critical Media-Buried Point About ‘Black Lives Matter’ During Hearing on Violent Protests

Something that has gotten lost – deliberately, I think – in all the talk about Black Lives Matter and the BLM protests and riots that have taken place in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd is the key distinction between saying black lives matter versus saying you support the “Black Lives Matter” organization.

Fox News’s Tucker Carlson has talked about the differences between the two often on his program over the last couple of months, but you don’t hear Republican politicians make the distinction often. Democrats, of course, don’t make it at all because it benefits them politically to blur the lines between the two.

But on Tuesday during his subcommittee hearing on free speech and the anarchistic violence happening in cities like Portland and Seattle, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) made it a point to explain the distinction in a way the mainstream media here in the U.S. almost never does:

[Cruz] makes a distinction between the statement “black lives matter,” which he calls “unquestionably true,” and the organization Black Lives Matter — which has called for people to “disrupt” the “Western-prescribed nuclear family structure” and defund police departments.
“The actual organization denominated Black Lives Matter was created by avowed Marxists pursuing a radical agenda including defunding police departments across the country and that agenda, if implemented, would have the consequence of a great many more Black lives being lost,” Cruz said.
