George Clooney Says Black Lives Matter Is All About Supporting ‘Racial Equality’

Actor-director George Clooney claimed that the far-left organization Black Lives Matter supports racial equality and appeared to downplay the group’s numerous instances of racism and violent anti-police rhetoric in an interview published Wednesday.
In a wide-ranging interview with c, the two-time Oscar-winner said Republican lawmakers failed to stand up to President Trump after he condemned the neo-Nazis and violent Antifa activists who clashed during deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia.
“It would be best for the country if some of these Republicans — and some of them I’m very good friends with, actually — stood up [to him],” Clooney said before drawing a moral difference between the Ku Klux Klan and Black Lives Matter.
“There’s an important distinction that doesn’t get said enough — the difference between Black Lives Matter and the KKK and the skinheads and the alt-right is this: Black Lives Matter was protesting in support of racial equality. Period,” Clooney said.

“Sometimes it got out of hand, absolutely,” he added. “But that’s what they were doing. You can never say, ‘Well, those guys were bad and these guys were bad.’ And to hear those words come out of the president of the United States, that is a great crime.”
Black Lives Matter chapters or the group’s supporters have come under fire for what critics have called the organization’s engagement in racism against white people and outright anti-police acts.
Black Lives Matter activists marched down the street during the Minnesota State Fair in August 2015, shouting a phrase that called for the deaths of police officers: “Pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon!”
