The Constitution of the United States’ First Amendment ensures that everyone has the right to express their opinion, but apparently only if it does not conflict with or go against the communist groups or the Democratic party that is now in fashion.
“The section of 16th [Street] in front of the White House is now officially ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza,’” tweeted Muriel Bowser, mayor of Washington, D.C.
The plaza was renamed by Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on June 5, 2020, after the Department of Public Works painted the words “Black Lives Matter” in 35-foot yellow capital letters.
It is normal; it is a way to exercise one’s First Amendment rights, and Mayor Muriel Bowser is not exempt just because she is an elected official.
Black Lives Matter Plaza (officially Black Lives Matter Plaza Northwest) is a two-block-long section of 16th Street NW in Downtown Washington, D.C.
A good example of it is obvious by a report aired by a local Las Vegas television station that calls it racist. KNTV-Channel 13’s Sean DeLancey reported that Police officers in Las Vegas are investigating vandalism on a Clark County bike path littered with racist phrases just feet away from a school.
“The path, signs, and nearby walls, are all spray-painted with phrases ranging from “white power” to “white lives matter,” to other phrases that no one should say, much less write, in an area where families and children regularly walk,” the reporter stated.
How dare you! How dare anyone say words like “white power” or “white lives matter” or any other phrase that no one should say where families and children regularly walk.
Only Black Lives should matter to this reporter or to the local Channel 13 television station; white people are no longer important, white lives should not matter to Sean DeLancey, Channel 13, or to anyone else.
Is it possible that we are living on a one-way street where only one group is able to protest and everyone else that is not of the same opinion is the enemy?
The street sign on the nation’s capital is not the only change. Earlier, “artists” with Murals DC, a Department of Public Works project, and some volunteers painted “BLACK LIVES MATTER” in yellow capital letters down a two-block stretch north of the intersection, just across Lafayette Square from the White House.
What makes painting in big letters on the streets so much of an art? That is not even graffiti because graffiti can be art, but letters are something anyone can paint.
Within a week, similar murals started popping up around the country. From Oakland, CA to Charlotte, NC, and from Albany, NY to Dallas, TX, artists have painted Black Lives Matter on city streets.
One morning, New York City workers shut down the block of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets in Manhattan where Trump Tower stands and got to work painting an enormous Black Lives Matter mural.
New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio, a frequent critic of the president, grabbed a paint roller to join the effort.
It is time for the mainstream media to start reporting the news and not be a spokes-tool for communist groups that are of a one-way mentality; it cannot be their way or the highway.
Let’s bring the country back to what it used to be where everyone was entitled to express their opinion and have their voice heard as much as anyone else.
It is time to respect one’s opinion and have the other person’s opinion respected as well, because All Lives Matter.
