Old white women go out in the streets to use their bodies to protect black rioters?
It took the killing of George Floyd to get Jane Ullman to finally pay attention to what the police were up to in America. But it was the sinister sight of federal agents in camouflage snatching demonstrators off the streets of Portland that got her out to protest.
The chief financial officer for tech startups in Oregon’s biggest city joined hundreds of other mothers dressed in yellow in a “Wall of Moms”, turning out each evening to stand as a human barricade between protesters and agents dispatched by Donald Trump to aggressively break up Black Lives Matter demonstrations.
Ullman, a mother of two, said it was her first demonstration in support of racial justice.
“As an upper-middle-class white woman in the whitest city in America, I couldn’t stand by any longer,” she said. “I’ve been doing a lot of self-educating since George Floyd. Reading and learning. The feds’ part in it pushed me over the top. I wanted to take action. But it was the ‘Wall of Moms’ that brought me out.”
Ullman was not alone. What began as a small symbolic act of defiance on Saturday grew into the principal demonstration two nights later, as thousands packed the streets and squares outside the county jail and federal courthouse in downtown Portland for one of the largest protests to date.
At the heart of it were hundreds of women dressed in yellow and singing “Hands up, please don’t shoot me” – evidence that not only has Trump’s dispatch of federal agents failed to stop the protests, it has reinvigorated them.
Video of unidentifiable federal officers, looking more like soldiers of an occupying army than police, beating and snatching protesters off the streets angered a 35-year-old mother of two, Bev Barnum, who posted a Facebook message on Saturday morning.
“As most of you have read and seen on the news,” she wrote, “protesters are being hurt (without cause). And as of late, protesters are being stripped of their rights by being placed in unmarked cars by unidentifiable law enforcement. We moms are often underestimated. But we’re stronger than we’re given credit for.”
Barnum called for a group to dress in white and form a protective line between police and demonstrators who Trump painted as anarchists.
“Let’s make it clear that we will protect protesters without the use of violence,” she said. “We will shine a light of the unjust narrative being thrown around.”
The first group of nearly 40 mothers lined up that evening, chanting: “Feds stay clear, moms are here.”
This is what you get for allowing women rights.
It is what you always get.
The Black Lives Matter agenda is more of a white female agenda than it is a black agenda. They are out in the streets with these blacks, and more importantly, they are in homes and workplaces forcing white men to bow down to the black agenda.
The overwhelming majority of men that support this support it because they’re being pressured by women, or they think women will have sex with them if they have the right moral positions. It is not at all natural for men to support a foreign agenda that harms their people.
Once you decide to give women rights, things are just going to keep getting worse and worse until you either take those rights away or your society collapses.
All that women want to do is harm men.
