Grandmother Blasts Black Lives Matter Activists: 'They Made This About Race'
Illinois grandmother Peggy Hubbard blasted the Black Lives Matter movement last week in an emotional Facebook video, which has gone viral.
Hubbard said that Black Lives Matter activists are focusing on police brutality instead of incidents like the tragic death of Jamyla Bolden, a 9-year-old Ferguson, Missouri, girl who was fatally struck by a stray bullet in her mother's bedroom while doing her homework.
“You say black lives matter? Her life mattered. Her dreams mattered. Her future mattered. Her promises mattered," Hubbard said. "Police brutality? How about black brutality?"
On "Hannity" tonight, Hubbard said that anti-police activists don't want to face reality.
"We want to glorify the criminals, the bad guys. We want to glorify them and give credence to their life. What contributions did they make?" Hubbard asked.
"It’s not a black issue. This is not a white issue. It’s a human issue. It’s an accountability issue. It’s a responsibility issue. That is what it is," Hubbard said. "They made this about race. This was never about race. This was about right and wrong."
Milwaukee Country Sheriff David Clarke joined the program and said that 75 percent of the problems in the black community are self-inflicted.
He pointed to things like father-absent homes, drug and alcohol abuse, poor schools and failure to stay in the workforce.
"The other 25 percent are inflicted by the Democratic Party with their modern liberalism, which is conduct without borders," Clarke said. "They reward underachievement, they make excuses for criminal behavior like black-on-black crime, and they blame everybody else for the problems that go on within our community."
