Opinion| As major cities in America burn, and violent crime soars, the Democrat leadership has decided to spend their oh so precious time painting ‘Black Lives Matter’ on their streets. The mural have faired better in some cities than others.
Perhaps most infamously, NYC’s failed Democrat Mayor, Bill de Blasio, embarrassed himself, while standing next to Al Sharpton, painting the name of the radical leftist organization on the fabled 5th Avenue. Of course, Lil’ Bill could not help but paint the words right in front of Trump’s iconic building, Trump Tower. Clearly de Blasio is not buying into the ‘Be Best’ mindset.
Republican Representative, Lee Zeldin, tweeted:
‘Fascinatingly ineffective, first of its kind strategy in progress by Mayor DeBlasio: At the same time, he is both asking the President for a $7.4 BILLION bailout while also trolling the President by painting this mural in front of Trump Tower in NYC.’

In a stunning lack of self awareness and over the top pettiness, the laughing stock of NYC, and perhaps the most despised man by the NYPD, gave the following speech after he finished his photo op with the painting rollers:
‘We are liberating 5th avenue’ … the shameless race pimping/pandering has reached incredible heights. Of course, other Democrats saw what Bill did and condemned it … lol, JK, of course they didn’t condemn it, they followed suit.
The BLM painting in NYC has been the target of, what the MSM calls, vandalism:
In Washington DC the Mayor had the same street graffiti authorized and painted:
For the record, I obviously agree with the sentiment that (lowercase) black lives matter, and I think 98-99% of the population agrees. On the other hand, the radical leftist, often violent and unwilling to compromise group ‘Black Lives Matter’, which has some founders and chapter leaders who are self described ‘trained Marxists’, is not something I support, in fact I think it is the most dangerous group in the country, right up there with Antifa.
In the District of Columbia, authorizing this ‘mural’ to be painted on the street resulted in a lawsuit against the Mayor.
The local Fox affiliate, Fox 5 DC, reported:
‘A lawsuit is challenging Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser’s move to paint “Black Lives Matter” in giant yellow letters down the city’s 16th Street near the White House, alleging she is violating the First Amendment’s establishment clause by showing a preference to what it calls a “cult orthodoxy.”
The suit, filed in federal court Wednesday by street pastor Rich Penkoski, also complains in incendiary language that Bowser’s decision to change a street name to “Black Lives Matter Plaza” was done “to pay respect to the Black Lives Matter liturgy at the taxpayers expense.”’
Of course, after seeing the punches landed on Trump’s back by NYC and DC’s mayors, the crazies in California (and other places) decided to get in on the action. There was just one problem for them which came in the form of a very clever Trump supporter…
Fox News explained:
‘Redwood City resident Dan Pease received permission from city officials to paint “Black Lives Matter” on Broadway Street as part of a Fourth of July public art celebration, according to KPIX 5. City officials even supplied him with the yellow poster paint to make the mural.
“Because we were using the poster board paint that would eventually deteriorate over time, my understanding from them was that the mural would last as long as the paint lasted,” Pease explained, the outlet said.’
How bold, how brave😳 … All was well on the left coast until Maria Rutenberg, a local real estate attorney decided, what is good for the goose is good for the gander:
Fox News went on to explain ‘… Rutenberg, who reasoned that the street was now a public forum, asked the city if she could paint her own “MAGA 2020” sign on the same street.’
The simplicity in Maria’s request and the brilliance she showed in knowing that the leftist leadership of the town would never abide any speech in favor of the President to be laid upon it’s streets resulted in the prompt removal of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ painting:
‘Redwood City in San Francisco’s Bay Area quietly scrubbed away its Black Lives Matter mural from a city street after a resident asked to paint a similar “MAGA 2020” on the same road …’ Fox explained.
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what is known as finding your enemies weakness (lack of tolerance) and using it against them. We have assigned a troll rating of 2 to Redwood City for the failure to maintain their attempt to divide the community and a troll level of 11 to Ms. Rutenberg for the simplicity and effectiveness of her suggestion which poetically expose the city’s bias and lack of tolerance. (Those are subjective opinions, don’t flag me bro)
