Black Lives Matter Urges Followers To 'Acquire' 'Racist' Thin Blue Line Flags

Black Lives Matter Sacramento called the Thin Blue Line flag symbolic of racism and white supremacy.

Sacramento, CA – Black Lives Matter Sacramento (BLMS) has asked its followers take as many Thin Blue Line flags as possible and to “donate” them to their cause.

“We are taking all donations of Blue Lives Matter flags acquired on the street [not bought],” the group wrote in a Facebook post on Monday.

Follower Rob Marchi asked BLMS for clarification.

“Is this calling for us to turn in discarded or otherwise abandoned flags, or acquire them by other means?” he wrote.

“It doesn’t state either,” BLMS responded.

On Monday evening, the anti-police group posted a Facebook Live video to complain about the “influx” of “terrorizing” messages and phone calls they had received since they made their request.

“The Blue Lives Matter flag is a racist flag,” BLMS founder Tanya Faison declared in the video.

She noted that BLMS “put out a request for people to donate” the allegedly racist flags to the group “if they have access to them.”

“We did not say how to get those flags. We did not imply how to get those flags,” Faison claimed, after telling people not to pay for the flags. “But we do need those flags, so if you have any Blue Lives Matter flags, or if you have access to them, please donate the flags to us.”

“We need them. We need as many as possible,” she reiterated. “There is no question, there is no doubt, that the Blue Lives Matter flag is symbolic of racism and white supremacy.”

Faison also urged people not to purchase the flags in order to hand them in, “because the people who are selling them don’t need to make money.”

“It’s like saying… black lives don’t matter… while they kill us and they get away with it,” she alleged. “So, I just wanted to remind people of that.”

She insisted that the purpose of Blue Lives Matter was to perpetuate the idea that “blue lives are more important than black lives.”

Blue Lives Matter has never suggested that anyone's life matters more or less based on the color of their skin, and one of their core values is equality. Blue Lives Matter has continually condemned racism.

“This is what makes it racist,” Faison added. “We’re being killed on a regular basis, especially here in Sacramento.”

Retired Las Vegas Metro Lieutenant and Blue Lives Matter spokesman Randy Sutton told CBS Sacramento that the Thin Blue Line flag represents people of all races.

“The makeup of the Thin Blue Line which that flag represents, represents all of America," Sutton said. "It represents white people, black people, Hispanic people, females, males, gays, transexuals.”

Joseph Murphy, the president of patriotic apparel company Warrior 12, says that thefts of Thin Blue Line flags have increased so much that his company started offering free replacements to customers for theft.

"Unfortunately, many people feel entitled to steal other people's property because they have different politics," Murphy said, before calling Black Lives Matter "professional liars."

Faison complained that people have been supporting law enforcement and defending the Thin Blue Line flag in the wake of Davis Police Officer Natalie Corona’s recent murder.

The 22-year-old officer had been patrolling the streets on her own for just two weeks when she was murdered by 48-year-old Kevin Douglas Limbaugh as she was investigating a car crash on Jan 10.

“People are all on this ‘Oh it’s supporting police and Officer Corona got killed,” Faison said in a condescending tone. “Yeah, it’s really sad when anybody dies.”

BLMS also mentioned Officer Corona in a blog post on Sunday.

“What we don’t understand is why the officer is held as a hero, validated in their heartbreak, supported throughout the community, and vindicated through ALREADY existing laws that already make their lives matter more than a non-officer,” the blog post read.

“The hard, direct, and chilling fact is that the blue lives matter ‘movement’ is simply repackaged Nazi propaganda,” it further stated.

Faison apologized to viewers who might be “triggered” by comments and posts that some people have been making criticizing the BLMS movement on the group’s own Facebook page, and assured them that moderators have been taking them down and blocking dissenters as fast as possible.

“It does wear and tear on your soul,” she lamented.

It's not that their lives matter more than anyone else's you moron. It's because they go to work everyday and put their life on the line (which has become so much more of A risk due to ignorant hate groups like BLM) to protect people like you. When you think about it, I guess that does make them a whole lo more valuable to society than people who just try and drag everyone else down.

So, I'm Rob Marchi. I'm not a follower of BLMS, just a concerned member of my local neighborhood watch. I'd appreciate not being labeled as a follower in your article.

“We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them.” — Racist Don Lemon on CNN October 29, 2018

All live are precious. The Thin Blue Line Flags represent all races, men, women, gays, transgender, everyone who has the courage to wear a badge and stand up to evil and say "not on my watch." Blue is not a race, silly lady. It's a family.

So basically she is telling people to commit hate crimes by taking something that doesn't belong to them just because it belongs to a certain population.

I urge the makers of the Thin Blue Line Flag to serialize tha flags, so if stolen, a report can be made with the unique serial number of that item, and if and when the stolen property is found, law enforcement can charge the people with being in possession of stolen property!

All lives matter. And yes the young officer who chose a career that allowed her to help people, to be cursed at and threaten daily. If someone is breaking in it will not be BLM who show up to help me. It will be the thin blue line. The number of unarmed people killed by the police was 41; 21White, 15 Black, 4 Hispanic and 1 unknown. Thant means that the other 954 killed by police were armed. There are somewhere between 800,000 and 900,000 sworn officers in the US. If the police were out "killing black everyday" there would be more than 15 unarmed black killed. Any death is sad, every death leaves a hole in a family. But to call a flag honoring police racist is ridiculous. My Thine blue line flag has the names of 148 fallen officers and 27 K9s on it. I choose to honor them rather than the 954 people who made bad decisions that led to their deaths.

BLM is nothing but a criminal street gang period! They are the most racist group. Makes one wonder who has the problem with their race...if black lives matter where are these big mouth criminals when a black officer is killed, where are they when black people are killing black people? I guess only certain black lives matter! Nothing but big mouth criminals. And criminals are gonna do what criminals do....including stealing Blue Lives Matter Flags.

Apparently she's not educated enough to recall that "Blue Lives Matter" started in response to her domestic terrorist organization targeting, ambushing and condoning violence against Police Officers. Furthermore, the Blue Line Flag was around long before...

Last time I've checked there's lots of black folks wearing the badge. These BLM liars need to be called out every time they speak. All groups like this does is create racism that isn't there. Like the paramilitary wing of Al Sharpton.

BLM members are racists who project hate and strive for anarchy. They are domestic terrorists and need to be actively confronted and dealt with as such.
