Did you know liberals can be racist? Black Lives Matter does.
At least, such looks to be true of the group’s Los Angeles chapter.
As reported by The Daily Wire, activists gathered outside the home of Democratic Mayor Eric Garcetti Tuesday to protest his being added to a Biden administration.
Per the protestors, Eric’s record should disqualify him from the cabinet.
They’re a little late — he was already national co-chair of Biden’s campaign.
Nevertheless, the nay-sayers are makin’ moves, and with good reason — if they’re correct.
As it turns out, according to the People’s City Council, Eric’s something of which you may never before have heard.

At the rally, BLM leader Melina Abdullah stood outside with a bullhorn leading people in a chant of “[Forget] Garcetti.”
Watch the video — full of much stronger language than my place-holding “Forget” — here.
In the clip, Melina explains:
“What he’s attempted to do for his entire reign as mayor is silence black voices. We will not let our voices be silent. … He wants us to be silent. And he continues to feed a police department that is one of the most murderous in the entire nation.”
According to Abdullah, putting Eric in a position of federal power would be “doubling down on liberal white supremacy.”
“We have to remember that there are a lot of liberal white supremacists. Just because you plaster on a smile, just because you have a few sellout negros that want a seat at your dinner table, just because you speak a little bit of Spanish…that does not make you not a white supremacist.”

Here’s more from the Wire:
Although Garcetti portrays himself as a progressive icon, [Melina] believes that he still supports racist systems that keep Black people oppressed. Abdullah said, for example, he has criminalized the city’s homeless population and has been too supportive of a police department that has been abusive and racially biased. She went on to tell the crowd Garcetti “appropriated our language” when he began using lingo like “reimagining public safety” after BLM activism forced him to push sweeping changes for LAPD.
After more than an hour of protest, cops told participants to ease on down the road.
But the word on the street is something sensational: Left-wingers can be racists.
And Melina doesn’t want one of those in Washington…
…Kamala or no:
“We want to be very clear that as we happily usher out the Trump regime, we will not accept liberal white supremacy in the White House in the form of Joe Biden. It doesn’t matter to me if Kamala Harris is your vice president if you’re using her Black woman body to usher in oppressive systems and oppressive people like Eric Garcetti.”
It appears Mayor Eric may have multiple problems in the optics department at the moment — just see two RedState articles from last month:
Seems less than optimal.
But nothing’s worse than being called the “R” word. That goes double when it’s from an organization called “Black Lives Matter.”
And quadruple that — or maybe multiply it more — when you’re a Democrat.
Not only has Eric gotten the ire of some on his own side, he may go down in contemporary history — as the first-ever officially-declared racist Democrat.
Take a picture, folks — in our ever-evolving safari of social consciousness, we’ve encountered a unicorn:
