A militant Black Lives Matter leader who was filmed crashing through a police barrier to steal a Confederate flag last year has received a brutal dose of karma while riding his bike in New Orleans. They won’t be able to blame this one on the cops.
According to the New York Post, a 32-year-old Black Lives Matter leader from South Carolina named Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, aka Muhiyidin d’Baha, was found dead on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, in New Orleans, Louisiana. Police said that d’Baha was shot in the thigh while riding his bicycle. The Black Lives Matter leader was reportedly in New Orleans on a personal visit.
New Orleans Police Department spokesman Beau Tidwell said no information about a potential motive or suspects was available Tuesday. D’Baha reportedly moved to South Carolina from Poughkeepsie, New York, when he was 13-years-old and had traveled to New Orleans for a personal visit, according to his niece Camille Weaver.
Almost a year ago, the Black Lives Matter leader had jumped through a police barrier at a protest outside the Sottile Theatre at the College of Charleston, where his dramatic leap was caught on camera, according to The Post and Courier.

D’Baha was arrested after diving to take a Confederate flag away from another protester. After the arrest, he was charged with disorderly conduct and jailed. Apparently, he wasn’t in jail long enough to keep karma from catching up to him.
After the incident, d’Baha gave an interview to the Washington Post, during which he said, “Not another generation of people are going to be intimidated by this flag.” He also said that his goal in crashing through to the police barrier to take the Confederate flag from the protester was to “help them understand what it is to meet a real resistance, to meet people that aren’t scared.”
Imagine for a moment that d’Baha was a white guy crashing through a police barrier to take a Black Lives Matter flag. Do you think he would have been labeled a hero by the mainstream media? That answer is “no.”
D‘Baha was a textbook liberal thinker. He thought it was perfectly acceptable to use violence against someone else and to violate their right to free speech. The hypocritical part of that thinking is obvious. Liberals are ok with violence and the suppression of another person’s rights as long as it serves their agenda.
But, it looks like d’Baha won’t be crashing any more police barriers or taking any more flags in the future. It’s true that violent people often meet a violent end.
It’s unfortunate that people like d’Baha are propped up as heroes after their demise. His niece said, “He loved Charleston and loved fighting for what’s right. I’ve never met anyone more committed and hardworking than him. He was an asset to the Charleston community and will be greatly missed.”
In the hopes of bringing d’Baha’s body back to Charleston for a funeral, his niece started a GoFundMe drive that had raised almost double its $7,500 goal already.
I’m more than positive not everyone in the Charleston community was sad to hear of d’Baha’s demise. In fact, there are probably more than a few people in Charleston who are relieved that Muhiyidin Elamin Moye, aka Muhiyidin d’Baha, will no longer be part of the cop-hating militant group that has plagued many parts of our country.
The fact of the matter is that d’Baha wanted people to praise his violent act and tried to justify it in the name of civil rights. There’s nothing justifiable about a group of people who preach hate and practice violence toward our law enforcement community. In my opinion, the community of Charleston and the country as a whole is better off without this thug. Good riddance.
