Actor, comedian, and talent show host Terry Crews has seen the dangers inherent in the recent Black Lives Matter rhetoric and hasn’t been afraid to speak about his reservations concerning the movement. This week he angered the mob yet again by warning BLM supporters not to get so carried away with their activism that they turn into black supremacists.
Needless to say, a bunch of BLM people started telling the African American man what opinions he is or isn’t allowed to have. Several called him “worthless” and even a “white supremacist.” Now, that’s caring about black lives in the modern era.
Crews, who has voiced support for the Black Lives Matter movement, (no, not everyone’s perfect) has at least seen how it can be a force for evil. On Twitter, the America’s Got Talent host and White Chicks and Brooklyn Nine-Nine actor wrote that there is a tendency for BLM supporters to cross the bridge from striving for equality into promoting full-on black supremacy.
Crews stated, “If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology. We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesn’t morph into #blacklivesbetter.” Of course, where in the world is the error in such a hope-filled tweet? If anything, it’s exactly the kind of mood lift we need from media figures in this time of social unrest.
But, of course, Crews’ primary mistake was assuming that the BLM mob would behave rationally, or showcase that they care about black lives. Unfortunately any criticism of Black Lives Matter, or any idea that might limit the movement’s more violent tendencies is deemed unwelcome and Crews’ opinion was nuked by ravenous lefties on the online platform.
This happened earlier to Crews, who was torched on June 7 for saying, “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.”
Bluecheck lefties, who are so enlightened on race, plastered Crews’ latest BLM blunder with accusations that his opinion is evidence that he “worships” the white man or that he abandoned his group of disenfranchised African Americans. Harper’s Bazaar, NBCBLK, and The A.V. Club contributor Kellee Nicole Terrell responded to Crews, saying, “You truly are worthless to us. White people can have you, especially since you love doing their work for them.”
Washington Post and Guardian contributing writer Holly Figueroa O’Reilly insulted Crews with a Lizzo song lyric, writing, “As a great philosopher once said, ‘why men great til they gotta be great?’” Yeah, Terry Crews’ denunciation of black supremacy really lowers his moral quality. That’s quite the take.
Twitter doctor Eugene Gu called Crews a white supremacist, tweeting, “There are Asian Americans who hate their own community and worship white people too. Guess white supremacy cuts across all races, creeds, and ideologies.”
And Ira Madison III, African American host of the podcast “Keep It!”, tweeted at the actor, “It’s truly embarrassing how you keep displaying your poor reading comprehension and lack of critical thinking.” Sure thing. Because uncritically buying into a narrative that sells the myth of a police force hell bent on targeting black folks – a myth which has harnessed the anger of deluded lefties into destroying private and actual lives – is a measured and educated response.
When you consider those things, that BLM would harness false truths by which many protesters would move to burn and pillage, it sounds like Crews is right. Doesn’t BLM getting away with societal destruction under the unconcerned watch of Dem leaders amount to getting special treatment? Perhaps, it is #BlackLivesBetter at this point. Keep speaking the truth, Mr. Crews. You’re much stronger than attacks on your skin color.
