Outrage After Black Lives Matter Chapter Celebrates Hamas Attacks On Israel: ‘One Terrorist Group Supporting Another’
Sane people everywhere were outraged after the Black Lives Matter chapter in Chicago posted an image on social media indicating clear support for the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel.
Terror attacks that killed over 1,200 people thus far, including at least 14 Americans. Terror attacks that resulted in a massacre on a community near the Gaza border that included children and families who were burned alive.
Knowing all of that, BLM Chicago posted an image of a paraglider with a Palestinian flag waving from his chute and the caption, “I stand with Palestine.”
The official Chicago chapter of Black Lives Matter released a graphic of a Hamas paraglider with the text: "I stand with Palestine."

This garbage goes well beyond expressing support for Palestine. The imagery makes it an explicit celebration of the brutality and carnage brought on by Hamas.
Video from the scene of a music festival in Israel shows Palestinian militants paragliding toward innocent people dancing and enjoying the music. When all is said and done, more than 260 people were gunned down at that festival.
BLM Chicago is celebrating that.

Black Lives Matter Chicago Receives Appropriate Backlash
Critics on the X social media platform, formerly known as Twitter, were rightfully outraged over the Chicago chapter of Black Lives Matter’s appalling post in support of Hamas terrorists.
“I said from the very beginning that BLM is a terrorist organization. Now they finally admit it,” wrote media personality Matt Walsh.

“They’ve always been this evil,” added commentator Allie Beth Stuckey. “Any Christian who has ever supported this wicked organization in any way should be deeply embarrassed.”
I remember being called all kinds of names by fellow Christians for refusing to post the BLM black square or repeat their mantras back in 2020. They’ve always been this evil. Any Christian who has ever supported this wicked organization in any way should be deeply embarrassed. https://t.co/sC7bcQJL4S

“This is disgusting. BLM celebrates murder. Never forget this,” wrote former White House press secretary Ari Fleischer.

Perhaps the best response to it comes from Twitchy managing editor, Sam J. who wrote simply: “Takes ONE terrorist group to know another.”

Every business and every sports team in Chicago that celebrated the Black Lives Matter movement should be asked to comment on their post and whether or not they will continue to support them.
Not The Only BLM Chapter Supporting Hamas
Black Lives Matter of Chicago wasn’t the only chapter to express support for the terrorist attacks on Israel.
Black Lives Matter Los Angeles posted on X that the Hamas “resistance must not be condemned, but understood as a desperate act of self-defense.”
NEW: Multiple Black Lives Matter groups have thrown their support behind the Hamas terrorists who murdered innocent people in Israel.
Black Lives Matter Los Angeles justified these actions by the terrorists because they were simply “resisting” Israel.

Can you imagine being so pro-terrorism that you actually define the beheading of babies and the raping of grandmothers before killing them as “self-defense?”
Two words come to mind.
Two words best conveyed by former NBA star Amar’e Stoudemire, who was highly critical of Black Lives Matter and the politicians who support them in the wake of Hamas’ attack on Israel.
“I woke up this morning with some disturbing news out of Israel – that Hamas kidnapping children, putting them in cages, killing women, killing the elderly. That’s some coward shit. That’s cowardly,” Stoudemire said.
“And for all y’all Black Lives Matter (supporters) ain’t saying nothing, ‘Well let me figure out exactly what’s happening before saying anything,’ F*** you.”

Now, they’re no longer silent. Now, they’re clearly on the side of the terrorists.
But then, we all saw the race riot videos in 2020. Black Lives Matter has been a terrorist organization all along.
Only some lives matter, actually.
Now is the time to support and share the sources you trust.
