PJMedia looks at the Oregon ranchers and #BlackLivesMatter.
Could they have common bonds?
In truth, the Black Lives Matter movement and the Bundy group have far more in common than they do in contrast. Both groups have grievances with government which they claim have gone unaddressed. Both groups point to ongoing examples of perceived government persecution. Both groups have chosen civil disobedience to draw attention to their cause. Both groups portray themselves as "peaceful" and claim to be engaged in "non-violent" protest.
