Black twin brother comics Hodgetwins coming to Spokane disagree with Black Lives Matter movement

It’s akin to the man bites dog headline.

That’s how it feels after witnessing the YouTube clip featuring the Hodgetwins stating that Black Lives Matter is a leftist lie.

The comics, who will perform in September at the Spokane Comedy Club, say the Black Lives Matter movement is bolstered by the Democratic Party so African-Americans vote for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden.

“Go on the streets and say it, and see how that turns out,” Dennis Nash tweeted.

The Hodgetwins, Keith and Kevin, will not be on a soapbox on the street, but it will be curious to hear the tandem crack wise from the stage.

The pair are billed as conservative comedians. Is their position a gimmick, or do they really believe that Black Lives Matter is fueled by the Democrats for votes?

Will there be protests at the Hodgetwins shows? What will the Virginia tandem and fitness models riff about?

Stay tuned.
