Gee whiz, it turns out that Blue Lives Matter is a crock full of bullshit. If it wasn't clear from the beginning, it should be abundantly clear after the events of January 6th, 2021. White, evangelical conservatives embrace law enforcement only as a tool to maintain and reinforce the foundations of white supremacy upon which our country rests. When law enforcement officers are oppressing those who threaten their privileged existence, blue lives indeed do matter.
The thin blue line, however, was breached on January 6th, 2021. Those who, until that day, proudly and vociferously backed the blue, instead viciously attacked the blue and hurled accusations of treason at the officers standing in the way of white supremacy. In the blink of an eye, blue lives stopped mattering.
