It’s Time We Start Calling Cop Block What It Actually Is: A Hate Group

A few months ago I wrote an article warning liberals that they were being duped by many of these so-called “police accountability” websites and Facebook pages. I explained that by buying into their propaganda, these liberals were basically supporting radical anti-government right-wing groups. What these various organizations try to do is attempt to hide their contempt for government behind their supposed desire to “hold police officers accountable.” But their clear disdain for law enforcement is just a part of their overall intense hatred of authority and the government.

Perhaps the most well-known of all of these groups is Cop Block. On Facebook, they list themselves under the category of an “Education Website,” which is absolute nonsense. They’re not out to educate, inform or hold anyone accountable – they’re out to slander police officers.

And I think it’s time we start calling Cop Block what it really is: A hate group.

Their website and Facebook page are littered with anti-cop propaganda. I always try to warn people to be weary of any supposed “advocacy group.” Because while Cop Block claims that its goal is to “hold police officers accountable,” who exactly is holding Cop Block accountable? Who’s watching the “watchers”? Often these “advocacy groups” are just as, if not more, unethical than those they claim to be “watching and holding accountable.”

Like when I busted this supposed “police watchdog” group back in August for trying to use an edited video to slander a cop.

But let’s look at the recent evidence, shall we?

Here’s Cop Block promoting a guns rights rally here in Texas to march on Austin in support of Texans having the right to openly carry handguns (click for full size image):

Yes, that’s the same pro-gun nonsense pushed by this buffoon who recently suggested 10,000 Americans commit treason and overthrow our government. And it just so happens he too pushes anti-cop propaganda to try to lure people to his radical anti-government ideologies.

Then here’s Cop Block blatantly promoting an anti-government Facebook page (their “friend”) called The Art of Not Being Governed:

Here’s a little insight into the world of Facebook pages. When one page says “our friends,” that’s often code for saying “another page we control.”

Then here they are more or less agreeing with rapper The Game, who sent out a tweet saying “I guess y’all ‘can’t breathe’ either” following the ambush and murder of two NYPD officers:

Then here they are posting a blatant anti-cop meme that has absolutely nothing at all to do with holding police officers accountable:

Again, this is a supposed “educational” group who claims they’re not out to slander or attack police officers, posting a meme that’s slandering and attacking police officers. 

Oh, and here they are doing it again:

And again:

Yes, because a hypothetical situation where a police officer pointing out to a child that a reflective light is needed on a bike to help possibly save her life is really worth making a meme about to essentially call cops “d*cks.”

And here’s another one:

That one basically perpetuates the idea that all cops are bad and the only good, “brave” ones exist in movies. Oh, and cops are nothing more than “revenue generators and oppressors.” Again, this is an organization that tries to pass itself off as a group “holding corrupt police officers accountable” for “educational” purposes.

Then there’s this blatant anti-government rhetoric:

That sounds like the very same sort of anti-government propaganda pushed by the likes of  Fox News, the tea party, Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz or any number of right-wing radicals.

By the way, all of these examples I included in this article were posted on their Facebook page in the span of less than three days. The truth is I could have spent all night gathering example after example of Cop Block blatantly slandering and bashing police officers. And these are just the basic posts and memes. I’m certain if I went through and researched the articles they’ve pushed on their page and website, I would find that many of them are blatantly sensationalized, highly misleading or outright lies.

Once again, this is an organization that perpetuates the idea that they’re simply wanting to “hold police officers accountable,” when the truth is that they have a clear and obvious hatred of authority, law enforcement and our government.

In my opinion, Cop Block is nothing more than a radical, anti-government hate group. Their mission isn’t to hold police officers accountable or be “advocates for ethical police behavior.” Their goal is to bash, slander and attack police officers to get as many people to “hate cops” as possible, because what they really want is so bring our entire system down. And a good way to do that is by ginning up hate, fear, anger and paranoia toward anything and anyone that resembles government or authority.

Which is exactly what they do.
