America saw one of the deadliest Fourth of July weekends in history as shootings spiked across the country, leaving dozens of innocent people injured or dead, including several young children. Worse still, the black community was disproportionately affected by this violence, and black-on-black crime continues to be a major issue. But where is the mainstream media? Where is Black Lives Matter? Of course, the fake news media is more focused on asking Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany dead-end questions about Trump and the Confederate flag. BLM is nowhere to be found. The truth is, neither of them care about protecting black lives or preserving the peace. They care about politics and votes and nothing else.
McEnany scolded the media during a Monday press conference in her closing remarks. She told them, “I’d end with this: I was asked probably 12 questions about the Confederate flag. This president is focused on action and I’m a little dismayed that I didn’t receive one question on the deaths that we got in this country this weekend,” McEnany said.
She continued to condemn the journalists for refusing to ask important questions about skyrocketing New York shootings, or the 8-year-old girl who was shot by BLM activists in Atlanta. She then proceeded to play a clip showing that little girl’s heartbroken father describing the hypocrisy of the BLM movement.
The Press Secretary ended by saying “We need to be focused on securing our streets, making sure no lives are lost, because all black lives matter, that of [retired St. Louis police captain] David Dorn and that of this 8-year-old girl. Thank you.”

To further quantify the violence McEnany was talking about, here are estimates of the reported shootings that occurred in America’s Democrat-controlled urban cities over the weekend.
- Chicago – 89 shot, 17 dead
- New York – 30 shot, 10 dead
- Philadelphia – 34 shot, 9 dead
- Atlanta – 31 shot, 5 killed
- New Orleans – 16 shot, 6 killed
Little children were among the victims as well. Some were as young as just 7 years old, others as old as 15. The rest were adult victims. These details are subject to change as they reflect initial reporting from various news outlets local to the metropolitan areas.
I always say that it isn’t a surprise that the media doesn’t care to ask questions about things that actually matter. However, I would say that what’s shocking is how low they will stoop just to push a narrative. Why do they push “Black Lives Matter,” but refuse to act like all Black Lives Matter? Black lives only matter to them when it benefits them.
Thankfully, people are waking up to this simple truth.
Prominent comedian and actor Terry Crews spoke out against the blatant hypocrisy of the Left over the weekend in a multitude of tweets. Crews boldly said, “#ALLBLACKLIVESMATTER 9 black CHILDREN killed by violence in Chicago since June 20, 2020”.

In a series of anti-BLM organization tweets and retweets, he voiced strong opposition to the BLM and Democrat talking points. Crews posed the questions, “Are all white people bad? No. Are all black people good? No. Knowing this reality- I stand on my decision to unite with good people, no matter the race, creed or ideology. Given the number of threats against this decision- I also decide to die on this hill”, he declared.

These unexpected tweets are bold coming from an entertainment industry star like Terry Crews. More importantly, he understands the gravity of what he is saying and vows to stand by his word regardless.
When people like Crews come out opposing the popular opinion, it validates conservatives who get vilified by the TDS-obsessed media. White people and police are not an imminent threat to black people. It’s the media and Marxist organizations like BLM who pose the real danger.
Hopefully, the Left continues to expose themselves and more influential people like Terry Crews begin to speak out. If for no other reason, it helps to save the dozens of lives that are being unfairly taken away by criminals who run the streets of urban cities. If we don’t stand up for children and innocent people who were killed last weekend, who will? It won’t be the Left, that’s for sure. Americans need to come together to put pressure on the Democrat mayors to take back their cities and protect all Americans, not just ones that benefit them.
