Because Everybody Knows Rich White Males Will Be Hurt the Most By Higher Fuel and Electricity Prices
Apparently, BLM is now protesting for climate action of some sort, temporarily closing an airport in the UK.
BLM has created a very hot brand, and at least for certain segments of the population, it has a lot of accumulated virtue credits. Now, everyone on the progressive Left wants to use that brand and those virtue credits, and are trying to shove their particular issues under the BLM tent. BLM is thus in the process of being hijacked. I give the movement about 60 days to get its messaging in order before its power to actually affect its original issue (police and proprietorial abuse) is at an end. That doesn't mean that BLM will go away -- if successfully jacked it may be around for decades, but it will be just another progressive shell organization. This will make its leaders more prominent and even perhaps a lot richer (think gigs at MSNBC), but it will make the goal of getting more accountability applied to police forces a dead letter.
