Friday Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh called the Black Lives Matter movement a “terrorist group” in the wake of the deadly police shootings in Dallas. “Speaking of President Obama … I found a story from March, I think, of 2015, in which President Obama welcomed two founders of Black Lives Matter to the White House and commemorated them and their efforts and praised them as being better organizers than he is,” Limbaugh said.
“Black Lives Matter was exactly who they are then as who they are today. They’re a terrorist group. They’re quickly becoming a terrorist group committing hate crimes.”
A shooter killed five police officers in Dallas and wounded seven others during a protest of police-involved shootings Thursday night.
The shooter, identified as 25-year-old Micah Johnson, was killed by police after he was cornered in a parking garage early Friday morning.
“The suspect stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” Dallas Police Chief David Brown said.
Black Lives Matter said Friday it does not condone the violence in Dallas.
