Giuliani: ‘I saved a lot more black lives than Black Lives Matter’
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani piled upon his previous comment that the BLM movement is “inherently racist.”
…when given the floor to explain himself on Monday, Mr. Mayor only doubled down. “It’s inherently racist because it divides us. All lives matter,” he offered to Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Pete Hegseth. He also attempted to swat down suggestions that as mayor of the Big Apple, he was not directly involved in the saving of black lives.
“I saved more black lives than anyone in the history of the city. I took over the city with 1,924 murders; I gave it to Mayor [Mike] Bloomberg with 500+ murders. 75% of the people saved during that time were African American,” he told the cohosts of Fox & Friends. “I believe I saved a lot more black lives than Black Lives Matter. I don’t see what Black Lives Matter is doing for blacks other than isolating them. All it cares about is the police shooting of blacks. It doesn’t care about the 90% of blacks that are killed by the blacks. That is a simple fact.”
Giuliani also went as far as to criticize the movement for its lack of presence in communities such as Chicago, where black-on-black crime is, “the predominant way a black person is killed.”
