The Death of David Dorn: To BLM, Black Lives Matter Not
Written by Selwyn Duke
The revolutionaries kill who they claim to save and are the threat they claim to combat. Just ask the family of David Dorn.
Dorn, murdered by rioters in Tuesday’s wee hours while defending a friend’s business, was a 77-year-old retired black police captain but also much, much more. Friends and family describe him as a leader and larger-than-life man of virtue who mentored youths and emphasized strict ethical conduct among the officers below him.
Dorn’s death was live-streamed on Facebook, as he lay bleeding on St. Louis’s Dr. Martin Luther King Drive at approximately 2:30 a.m. in front of Lee’s Pawn & Jewelry. The man filming the scene was heard on video repeatedly pleading with Dorn, “Stay with me, OG.”
Dorn could not do so. Yet he was a man who was always there for his family, friends, and community — including the criminals with whom he dealt.
“The Rev. Richard Jackson of the Manasseh Ministry said he knew Dorn back when Jackson was a 17-year-old shoplifter,” reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Dorn was the police officer who caught him, and also the one who talked to him.” The paper continues:
“He was a very honest police officer and an honorable gentleman,” Jackson said. “He would talk to me outside the store. ‘You go to school? You doing OK?’”
Dorn’s niece, Tandy Stewart, stood near the front of the pawn shop where Dorn was killed and looked down at the sidewalk, among the crushed memorial candles. She bent down and touched the pavement with tears in her eyes.
“My uncle’s blood,” she said, her voice breaking. She sat down next to dried traces of blood and stared.
“He was a great man,” Stewart said.
As for the far different man who took Dorn’s life, no arrests have yet been made in the case, though the reward for information leading to the apprehension of those responsible is now at least $40,000.
But while the following information won’t yield rewards or arrests, here are some of those responsible, albeit indirectly: #BlackLivesMatter (BLM); ANTIFA; and those in media, entertainment, politics, and elsewhere who’ve fomented unrest in the wake of the death of arrestee George Floyd.
One mourner said it well. Accompanying flowers and a teddy bear that sat outside the scene of Dorn’s murder was a handwritten sign reading, “‘Y’all killed a black man because ‘they’ killed a black man??? Rest in peace,’” reports the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
“Diane Davis knew Dorn and brought the flowers Tuesday. She said he was like a father to many,” the paper continued.
“‘He was a kind man, he was a great man, he is a missed man,’ she said.”
Black lives matter?
Dorn isn’t alone, either. While police shot 10 unarmed black suspects in 2019 (and 19 unarmed white ones) — eight of which incidents were found justifiable; officers were charged in the other two — the current riots have already claimed more than a dozen black lives. Of course, these killings receive scant media coverage.
Black lives matter?
Dorn’s sure did — at least to those around him if not to BLM. His “personality was ‘bigger than life,’” Breitbart quotes former St. Louis County police chief Tim Fitch as saying. “‘He was a fun guy, a happy guy. You never had to wonder what he was thinking when somebody did something incredibly stupid like a crime because he would just say it as he saw it.’”
The latter can be said about another BLM-inspired violence victim, one far luckier than Dorn. They “tell me ‘Black Lives Matter.’ They’re lying,” said 69-year-old Lucy Hosley, standing outside her Bronx business, the Valentine Deli, after thugs ravaged it Tuesday morning.
“You wanted to loot the store. You needed money,” she bluntly exclaimed. “Get a job like I do. Stop stealing.”
“You said ‘Black lives matter’ — why don’t you choke me!?” Hosley asked rhetorically, after a night of cleaning up the miscreants’ damage. “I’m black; look what you did to my store!”
“This is our neighborhood,” she later pointed out. “We’re trying to build it up, and you tear it down” (short video below).
Hosley was joined in speaking truth to anarchist power by black African immigrant Nestride Yumga. “Black Lives Matter is a joke! You are the racists!” she told BLM protesters Sunday near her home in Washington, D.C.
“When black people kill black people, they don’t come out and do this c***,” she pointed out, referencing the protesting and rioting. “The only time they do this c*** is when a white person does it” (video below. Note: language warning).
Yumga was calling “out the hypocrisy of Black Lives Matter for refusing to acknowledge the exponential amounts of black-on-black crime, particularly in Chicago and other liberal-led cities,” explained WND.com.
In reality, upwards of 90 percent of black homicide victims are murdered by other blacks. Moreover, studies show definitively that police are more likely to shoot white than black suspects.
Black lives matter?
“The Ethical Society of Police, which represents black officers in St. Louis, mourned Dorn as ‘the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to,’” the St. Louis Post-Dispatch also informs. Meanwhile, #BlackLivesMatter — with its Orwellian, “War is Peace” name and Luciferian bent — is willing to sacrifice black lives for its ultimate goal: power.
As a Students for Democratic Society (SDS) radical once put it, the “issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.” And now the revolutionaries claim they want to save black lives as they claim black lives.
