What most people don’t know is that: Peggy Hubbard is a native of Ferguson, Missouri, but now lives in Rockville, Illinois. According to her Facebook page, she’s a Navy veteran who has since retired from working at the IRS. Her photos show her at events featuring bikers and the confederate flag.
Earlier in August 2015, Hubbard wrote that her cousin, Michael, had become the new police chief in East St. Louis. Fox St. Louis reported at the time that Michael Hubbard is a 19 year veteran of the East St. Louis department. The station says he was hired because of his “strong reputation for community policing and inspiring excellence through ethical leadership.”
Peggy Hubbard tears down #BlackLivesMatter on Don Lemon CNN . Woman Who Posted Viral #BlackLivesMatter Rant Hits Back at Critics: ‘Bite Me’. Peggy Hubbard, the woman who posted a #BlackLivesMatter rant that went viral, appeared on CNN tonight to tell Don Lemon why she thinks the movement has misplaced priorities.
Hubbard told Lemon that police officers across the country are worried either about being killed or being “the next Darren Wilson” because of the strong anti-police sentiment.
Peggy Hubbard had a very strong emotional reaction to the case of St. Louis officers fatally shooting a black 18-year-old who reportedly had a handgun and the death of a 9-year-old in Ferguson who was killed in a drive-by shooting.
It outraged Hubbard that activists protested for “the thug” and said, “Are you ‘fugging’ kidding me? Police brutality? How about black brutality. You black people, my black people, you are the ‘fugging’ most violent ‘motherfuggers I have ever seen in my life.”
She said the “black lives matter” mantra should be applied equally to black-on-black crime and elaborated, “327 homicides later y’all want to holler police brutality? Black people, you’re a fucking joke. You’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals.”
She added, “You shoot at them, they’re gonna shoot at you.”

New FOLLOW UP Reply to Viral Black Lives Matter Video :
Good morning everyone. I apologize for the language I used yesterday in my rant. Peggy was very upset yesterday because of the deterioration of our society and our neighborhoods and losing that little girl.
As a mother, wife and grandmother I was very upset. I have a grandchild that age and it broke my heart; because what if it was my grandson or grand daughter.
I apologize for my language. My mother did teach me better than that. I’m going to refrain from using that type of language.
