It isn’t every day that you see an article where a prominent African-American citizen criticizes Black Lives Matter, aka BLM. This article quotes Muhammad Ali’s son, Muhammad Ali Jr., as saying “Don’t bust up s–t, don’t trash the place. You can peacefully protest. My father would have said, ‘They ain’t nothing but devils.’ My father said, ‘all lives matter.’ I don’t think he’d agree.”

Ali Jr. continued, saying “It’s not just black lives matter, white lives matter, Chinese lives matter, all lives matter, everybody’s life matters. God loves everyone, he never singled anyone out. Killing is wrong no matter who it is,’ Ali said during an hour-long interview with The Post. On police brutality, Ali defended law enforcement in general. ‘Police don’t wake up and think, ‘I’m going to kill a n—-r today or kill a white man. They’re just trying to make it back home to their family in one piece.'”

That isn’t the most incendiary part. This is likely getting the most backlash:

Speaking of Floyd’s killing at the knee of a white Minneapolis police officer, Ali said, “The officer was wrong with killing that person, but people don’t realize there was more footage than what they showed. The guy resisted arrest, the officer was doing his job, but he used the wrong tactic.” He agrees with President Trump that Antifa fomented violence during the Floyd protests and should be labeled a terrorist organization.

“They’re no different from Muslim terrorists. They should all get what they deserve. They’re f–king up businesses, beating up innocent people in the neighborhood, smashing up police stations and shops. They’re terrorists, they’re terrorizing the community. I agree with the peaceful protests, but the Antifa, they need to kill everyone in that thing. Black Lives Matter is not a peaceful protest. Antifa never wanted it peaceful. I would take them all out.”

That will get some attention. This will too:

This, though, will attract the most heat:

“I think Trump’s a good president. My father would have supported him. Trump’s not a racist, he’s for all the people. Democrats are the ones who are racist and not for everybody. These [Democrat politicians] saying Black Lives Matter, who the hell are you to say that? You’re not even black.

Democrats don’t give a s–t about anybody. Hillary Clinton doesn’t give a s–t; she’s trying not to get locked up. Trump is much better than Clinton and Obama. … The only one to do what he said he would do is Donald Trump.”

The biggest question I have is what effect people like Jack Brewer, Pastor Darrell Scott and Sen. Tim Scott are having within the African-American community. Couple that with Candace Owens’ #Blexit Movement. I don’t have the answer to this question but it’s one worth paying attention to — are these this year’s hidden Trump voters?
