(RepublicanInformer.com)- Remember when Black Lives Matter complained that the Biden administration refused to meet with them immediately after he was inaugurated?
Well, it looks like the neo-Marxist organization still isn’t happy with the new president, complaining on April 20 that Black American communities are now under a greater than ever.
Their false claim came one day before a 16-year-old Black American girl in Columbus, Ohio, was shot outside of her home. What Black Lives Matter hasn’t acknowledged, however, is that Ma’Khia Bryant was in the process of stabbing someone when she was shot by a police officer.
The Columbus Police Department quickly released the bodycam footage to prove that the shooting was justified, but it hasn’t stopped Black Lives Matter claiming that it was another instance of institutional and systemic racism.
“Biden’s first 100 days are up in 10 days. By then we need him to #End1033, which transfers military equipment into the hands of police across the country– including school & campus police. Another example? The military you see out on your streets ahead of the Chauvin verdict,” a tweet from the organization said.

The account added that Biden is “currently sending more military equipment to our neighborhoods than Trump did.”
So President Biden is now officially more racist than President Trump was?
Black Lives Matter then added a link to a new petition titled, “Demilitarize Our Neighborhoods.” The petition claims that the more than $7 billion spent on law enforcement agencies is a problem, and that “killings by police have continued.”
“Our screens continue to be filled with state-sanctioned violence against Black people,” it falsely claims, before adding that they are “calling on the Biden administration to end the 1033 program altogether.”
The 1033 program was created by the 1997 National Defense Authorization Act and authorizes the Department of Defense to get rid of excess equipment by giving it to local law enforcement who can use it to save on costs.
So Black Lives Matter wants to…make it more expensive for the police force to obtain important tools to protect American citizens?
If Black Lives Matter’s problem with the 1033 program is that they do not want local law enforcement to have access to military surplus equipment, then they may want to read the law.
Much of the tools provided by the act are not actually weapons, but other equipment including “coffee makers, electrical wire and cargo containers.”
