A Louisville man has been arrested and charged with federal crimes after soliciting a ‘donation’ of $30k on a Facebook livestream in return for shooting Louisville Police Officers. 29-year old Cortez Edwards made the threat as Louisville Metro Police Officers were responding to a disturbance outside his house, just days after Black Lives Matter rioters ran amok after a Kentucky grand jury declined to indict police officers in the death of Breonna Taylor.
Two Louisville Metro Police Department officers were shot during the riots last week.

United States Marshals deputies carried out a federal search warrant on his home after recovering video footage in which Edwards threatened to shoot law enforcement in return for money. Edwards had reportedly waved around a gun in the Facebook live footage, which may have gained authorities attention as he made the threats.
They found a Glock 19 semiautomatic pistol in his possession. As a convicted felon, Edwards is prohibited from possessing guns, and is thus being charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
“Louisville needs healing and safety for its citizens, not armed felons seeking bids to shoot police,” said U.S. Attorney Russell Coleman in a press release summarizing the arrest.
If convicted, Edwards could face up to ten years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
Twerking For MLK: Black Lives Matter Posts Gyrating Tribute to Civil Rights Hero
MLK would be proud.
The official Black Lives Matter (BLM) Twitter account posted a gyrating tribute to the civil rights hero, Dr. Martin Luther King, on his annual national holiday.
The Instagram video features a woman shaking her buttocks to a rap remix of the iconic Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech. The dancer’s short shorts are styled after the American flag in this display of patriotism.
The clip can be seen here:
Official BLM account @Blklivesmatter did a twerking tribute to honor the civil rights legacy of MLK on sacred US monuments, including the one dedicated to fallen troops from WWII. As an ordained minister I’m pretty sure this wasn’t what he was fighting for, but I could be wrong🙃 pic.twitter.com/GGRfypUYWP

Considering Dr. King’s well-documented history of lustful exploits, this tribute may have been right up his alley.
While this post by BLM may have been amusing for its ignorance and living up to various stereotypes, their overall behavior and affect on American life is far from a laughing matter.
Big League Politics has reported on how America has turned on BLM after an orgy of destruction was let loose on the nation with the full support of Democrat and media elites:
New polling from AP and the University of Chicago indicates that support has sharply declined for the Black Lives Matter protest movement, with 15% less Americans supporting the movement now than they did in June 2020…
At the time, a majority (54%) of Americans overall supported the movement. Now, it is decisively unpopular; only 39% of Americans support the Black Lives Matter protest movement. 44% express their specific disapproval, a figure that is also presumably growing.
Curiously, even less Latinos support the riot movement than White Americans; with 31% of the former demographic expressing support for it, whereas 35% of whites do. Democrats have increasingly ignored the concerns of Hispanic Americans- many of whom live in crucial swing states such as Florida, Nevada and Arizona, instead placing emphasis on a demographic that already votes for the party in an almost universal fashion.
Support for other longstanding claims of BLM’s adherents has also tanked. The poll indicates that Americans are growing cold towards the claims of police oppression and a fundamentally racist justice system.
“Overall, Americans are less likely than they were in June to say deadly force is more commonly used against a Black person than a white person, 50% vs. 61%. And fewer now say that officers who cause injury or death on the job are treated too leniently by the justice system, 52% vs. 65%.”
Many Americans had been inclined to support the grievance movement following the death of home invasion convict George Floyd. But the consistent pattern of criminality and violence from its most staunch supporters appears to have worn out BLM’s welcome, and its enablers may soon pay the political price.
Graffiti and twerking are the only remaining acceptable symbols of national pride that are allowed to be displayed publicly, and we have BLM to thank for this “progress.”
