Well.....Well .......Well...........

Omaha had to come out of the shadows and get into the Limelight on the BLM, and No Peace No Justice protests.

On 7/8/2016 about 1,000 so called protesters came out and did their little march on the good citizens of Omaha. Disrupting traffic,yelling curse words at the police, and playing to the media cameras.

I seen on the news that they were chanting "No justice No peace" what does that really mean to Omaha?

Please someone explain this to me..........

Also seen them taunting the riot squad in front of the Burger King who were mustering up for possible
violence ....Thank God that did not happen.

I really don't understand this mentality here in Omaha. Are things so bad here?

And last question.........How is a protest like this really going to change things, what is the point? Is it a clean way of yelling at the police without getting arrested?

What do they hope to accomplish?

One more thing not one person there was in support of the Police, one day after the shooting in Dallas.

So all I seen was a hateful group of people just trying to be disruptive.

What do you think?

All life matters...good civil behaviour matters...controlling yourself and raising your children so they can survive matters....teaching your kids proper values and having a spiritual life matters.... Cops almost never kill normal well behaved people....If I wanted my life not to matter I could take a butter knife and go into the intersection and start screaming....then I would be most likely disposed of - because I no longer thought I mattered.


We do not need an updated version of hateful Black Panthers....if black activists want to be famous....latch on to something valuable and real such as an education and being responsible for the children you bring into the world....

This is all about equality crap...we are not all equal...and those who get shot by cops whether they are black or white are simply dumb....and yes the stupid in our society matter and perhaps we should babysit our weaker members because they can end up getting shot....?

I don't think the picture with the police in the riot gear really represents the entire tone of the evening. There were police offers giving bubbles to children, protesters giving roses to police officers and officers joining in during "hands up don't shoot chants."

I think the protest was a way for people to show that they are frustrated and that they care about what is happening around the country. I think the police did a good job of creating a inclusive space too, which seems to be a big problem elsewhere.

I watched it on the news and it looked like about 200 people not 1000 reported by the media. The media always hypes up the crowd to get more viewers.

I have also watched other BLM gatherings in other cities and the news people go to the site 1 hour ahead of the scheduled time and no one is there and then 15 mins before it's to start the school buses full of demonstrators arrive. Several hours later, you can see the people getting back on the buses and they all leave. I can't say it happened in Omaha because the local news did not scan the larger parking lots to the West to see in their were big yellow buses parked there.

Another interesting thing that was obvious on the news, 90% of the demonstrators were white, very few black. Now, I heard that BLM is exclusive to blacks only. So was BLM even in Omaha, other then a few inciters shipped in from Chicago or Atlanta.


How many people know that community organizers put all of these together and are paid by some very rich people to do it. How do I know this, because I have family members that travel the country and do this for a living, they also work for SEIU. They did the 99%, minimum wage, and now the BLM demonstrations together. They hire the leaders and pay all expenses like transportation and lodging.


BTW Omaha has had race riots before in the early 70's that was extremely violent.

Most Omaha residents will just ignore the whole thing and go about their daily lives.

I wish the Omaha protesters can understand this.

What all BLM backers need to understand is that there is a few people that are using them to accomplish their goals and agenda's not the BLM agendas. The main stream media will not report this because these puppet masters have influence over the media.

The whole thing is one giant astroturf:

‘Hawaii’s George Soros’: The Hidden Donor Funding The Illegal Immigration, #BlackLivesMatter Activists

And while a Soros spokesman denies funding it...

O'Reilly Discusses 'Black Lives Matter' Funding, Including Soros and Supporters Jay-Z and Beyoncé

... it's exactly the sort of thing the Tides Foundation has often backed. NB: Soros has openly stated that he wants to bring down Western Europe; what about America?

As Milo often says, the main thing BLM accomplishes is black cities in flames.

My 2c:


Omaha had the most hateful, anti-white, aggressive black folks I've ever had the displeasure of sharing a city with.


Omaha = extremely segregated

"weird that BLM

So far as the racist and murderers comment......this is an opinion and not fact since I would say Margaret Sanger was much more recognized as a feminist, and not a racist(which history shows, even though far right anti aborition activists try to claim otherwise). Since more anglo children are "aborted", that would make it an equal opportunity situation since very few women want to really choose this route. It is more a lack of options and I would say a financial or specific relationship situation.

Another thing I can say about this is that there are wayyyy more protests in Chicago than in Omaha.....and yes, Omaha is quite a segregated city, as is Chicago to a large degree, just as most other large cities seem to be considering few of them recognize or admit it.
