The statement of “black lives matter” is something almost everybody can agree on. Despite the grim picture routinely painted in universities and mass media, Americans of different ethnic backgrounds are living and working together at rates higher than ever before. Despite a sordid U.S. past in regards to African Americans, there have been enormous strides made in the last decade alone.
No matter what any spin machine tries to say, the election of Barrack Obama dispelled the notion of systemic racism in America. Suburban, white liberals voted for Obama in droves and still hold him in high regard to this day. Lebon James is the most influential athlete in the country, adored and respected by tens of millions of white Americans.
I know what the rebuttal to what I just said will be. Generational inequities, the legacy of slavery and Jim Crow and the fact that racial justice hasn’t caught up for everybody.
The thing is though, pretty much everybody can agree on that as well. Even the bulk of right-leaning white people agree that the effects of these things linger, despite what is portrayed. It hasn’t even been 100 years since African Americans achieved equal rights under the law, and I’m not at all arguing that some communities are still feeling the effects of that today. What they disagree on is the extent of it and the notion that it is widespread in America in 2020. The fact that every corporation under the sun is supporting BLM paints quite the opposite picture.
What I will say, however, is that the group ‘Black Lives Matter’ is a radical left-wing group that has nothing to do with black interests. Black Lives Matter is a group that hijacks legitimate grievances of African Americans and uses them as a front for a radical leftist agenda. Don’t believe me? Just take a look at the BLM website.
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable” says the group’s mission statement. “We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise)” it goes on.
What does any of that have to do with “black lives” or police brutality?
A co-founder of Black Lives Matter has gone on record stating that there will be no peace with Donald Trump or his supporters. “We wouldn’t as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn’t have done that with Hitler. Trump is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country, be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia and he has set out the most dangerous policies not just that impacts this country but that impacts the globe” said one of BLM’s three co-founders, Patrisse Cullors back in 2017.
Despite being “literally Hitler”, the Trump Administration backed criminal justice reform in 2018. Trump’s “First Step Act” enrolled 16,000 non-violent inmates in drug rehabilitation programs as opposed to incarceration, among countless other initiatives aimed at reforming the criminal justice system. The 2020 fiscal budget included over $500 million towards initiatives aimed at helping prisoners transition back to society. Not bad for someone who is “literally trying to kill” black communities, which Cullors said in that same 2017 interview.
The fact of the matter is that opposition to “Black Lives Matter” is not at all the same as opposition to black people. The group is named what it is so that gullible, white liberals will post a black screen in support of “black lives matter”; because what kind of monster doesn’t support black lives? Who doesn’t support “equality”?
Black Lives Matter is as much of a pro-black organization as the Patriot Act was a patriotic service to the American people. Ushered in under the guise of “fighting the war on terror”, the Bush Administration’s “Patriot Act” has become known as the most tyrannical law in U.S. history. It ushered in the surveillance state as we know it, giving the Federal Government powers it was never intended to yield.
So don’t be fooled. Just because “Black Lives Matter” is the group’s name does not mean that they represent black people as a whole or the legitimate wrongs perpetuated against the black community. No group fully represents anybody, and BLM is simply a guise to get gullible white leftists to support an authoritarian, domestic terrorist group under the guise of fighting for “equality.”
It’s old, and the laundry list of radical Black Lives Matter stunts was long prior to the murder of George Floyd. Groups like BLM have no intention of healing the racial divide in America. Their goal is to expand it and silence anybody who see’s through it into submission. Arm yourself with the facts and don’t let it happen.
