AOC and BLM’s Silence as a Black Child Is Killed Near AOC’s District Is a Sobering Lesson About the Left

The left loves to make a big scene about black lives but the truth is that black lives only matter when black lives are useful. The moment they don’t serve the greater narrative or have no contribution to an agenda, black lives are ignored.

Take, for instance, the case of Justin Wallace, a 10-year-old boy who was just three days away from his 11th birthday when he was shot in the chest after a gunman opened fire at his aunt’s home in Far Rockaway on Saturday. Despite the bluster from the left during the election, suddenly speaking out about black lives isn’t as important, even when it’s an innocent young boy.

As originally caught by Fox News, Black Lives Matter hasn’t really said anything about Wallace. Also interesting is the fact that Queens Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has said absolutely nothing about it despite it happening at her district’s front door.

Fox News has reached out to both BLM and AOC, but neither has returned any comment.

The only one who did say anything was Rep. Gregory Meeks, who did what Democrats do and immediately seized on the moment to talk about passing gun control laws.

“Taking action is an imperative, and I implore my colleagues on the local level to evaluate how we can curb such violence in our communities, and I will continue to push for meaningful gun reforms on the federal level,” he tweeted.
