Even a broken clock is right twice a day and all conservatives should shudder to contemplate what a Chris Christie presidential administration would look like, the man is not always wrong.
The tough-talking New Jersey governor has a low tolerance for cultural ridiculousness. His moderate policies are almost entirely wrongheaded in so many fashions, but his brash talk can be entertaining and even the most ardent conservative has likely found himself smirking at a Christie diatribe.
One such diatribe occurred recently as the 2016 presidential candidate discussed the black supremacy “movement” #BlackLivesMatter- a fabricated movement that operates like Occupy but ridiculously crusades against anyone and anything that does not bow before the leftist narrative that America and her institutions are racist.
On Wednesday morning in Iowa, hundreds gathered in a small diner to hear a townhall speech from Chris Christie. As the candidate fielded questions, he blasted Hillary Clinton for her divisive rhetoric that demonizes dissenting Americans and spoke on a wide range of issues.
When a mother of two police officers rose to ask how he would support law enforcement, Christie offered a fiery and poignant tirade about the damaging effects of #BlackLivesMatter and the willingness of Hillary and other liberals to cater to this crowd of violent extremists.
“I think all lives matter,” Christie began.
“But let me tell you this: When a movement like that calls for the murder of police officers…no President of the United States should dignify a group like that by saying anything positive about them, and no candidate for president, like Hillary Clinton, should give them any credibility by meeting with them, as she’s done.”
Christie punctuated his point by issuing a message to the black supremacists that may hear his words:
“I want the Black Lives Matter people to understand: Don’t call me for a meeting. You’re not getting one.”
Christie may be wrong on many issues, but his stance on #BlackLivesMatter is spot-on.
A president should be willing to serve as the president of all Americans. However, we need not dignify lunatics and violent extremists like these black supremacists who are wreaking havoc upon our communities and jeopardizing the lives of our law enforcement professionals.
