Peggy Hubbard’s 6-minute Facebook clip has been viewed over 4.8 million times since it was posted last Thursday and has generated over 12,000 comments.
In an interview on “Hannity” on the FOX News Channel, Hubbard explained that she and her husband turned in their son to the police because he decided that he did not want to follow the rules and obey the law. Her son is now “doing time.” Hubbard also defended the police who are a main target of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Do you think the police are out here for fun?” she asked. ‘Do you think they’re out here for games? They’re not going to tuck you in. They’re not going to give you a cookie and sing you a lullabye. No, they’re gonna pop a cap in your ass. You shoot at them and they’re going to shoot at you … If you try to kill them, their job is serve and protect, not serve and die.”
Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement for misdirecting its anger at “politically convenient” targets — specifically Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“The idea that disrupting and protesting Bernie Sanders speeches will change what is wrong in America is lunacy,” Carson, the lone African-American candidate in the 2016 race, wrote in an op-ed published by USA Today. “The ‘BlackLivesMatter’ movement is focused on the wrong targets, to the detriment of blacks who would like to see real change and to the benefit of its powerful white liberal funders using the attacks on Sanders for political purposes that mean nothing for the problems that face our community.”
“The notion that some lives might matter less than others is meant to enrage,” the retired neurosurgeon continued. “That anger is distracting us from what matters most. We’re right to be angry, but we have to stay smart.”
