Black Lives Matter (BLM)
Origin of Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter was created in 2013. The group describes its founders as “three radical Black organizers” named Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi. They are communist revolutionaries who hate America and love its enemies.
The hero of this trio is Assata Shakur (Joanne Deborah Byron Chesimard), a Black Panther who murdered a police officer in 1973. She escaped from prison and found refuge in Cuba, where she lives today. She remains on the FBI Most Wanted Terrorist List.
The spark that started Black Lives Matter was the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the death of Trayvon Martin. That trial was the first time I ever heard the term "White Hispanic." Zimmerman was acquitted because the jury found he acted in self-defense after Martin attacked him.
Documentary filmmaker Joel Gilbert released a movie about the case, The Trayvon Hoax: Unmasking the Witness Fraud That Divided America. Gilbert uncovered that the prosecution's only witness was an imposter, who was not at the scene. Gilbert calls it the "seminal race hoax of the Obama years."
Black Lives Matter took off after Michael Brown was killed by a Ferguson, Missouri police officer in 2014. Brown had attacked the officer, sucker-punched him, and tried to take his gun, presumably to shoot him with it. However, a false story, invented by racial agitators, began circulating that Brown had done nothing wrong and was shot while holding his hands up and begging, “Don’t shoot.”
Even the Obama administration ruled that it was not true. However, that didn’t stop “Hands Up – Don’t Shoot” from becoming the slogan of Black Lives Matter. They used it to provoke rage among Black Americans and energize a protest movement against what they claimed was “virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our society.”
The Ideology of Black Lives Matter
The bible of Black Lives Matter is the Communist Manifesto. Members call each other ‘comrade.’ Their mission statement comes from Vladimir Lenin: “We must be ready to employ trickery, deceit, law-breaking, withholding and concealing the truth. We can and must write in a language which sows among the masses hate, revulsion, and scorn toward those who disagree with us.”
Any black person killed by a white person or a black cop is considered "murdered" by Black Lives Matter, regardless of the circumstances or court decisions.
Co-founder Alicia Garza explains the genesis of her organization, “Black Lives Matter is an ideological and political intervention in a world where Black lives are systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. It is an affirmation of Black folks’ contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression. We have been fighting and advocating to stop a war on black lives. And that is how we see it – this is a war on black life.”
The way they see the world, everything is about race, and everything is about oppressors vs. the oppressed. People are not to be seen and judged as individuals but only as members of their identity group. Anything wrong with the world is because of 'white privilege.'
BLM is also militant about fighting to normalize homosexual and transsexual behaviors. They reject heterosexuality as in any way natural or normal in human beings or the animal kingdom.
Black Lives Matter despises traditional American culture and values, as well as holy matrimony and the nuclear family. Capitalism, the free market, limited government, free speech, and Christianity are deemed irredeemably evil and criminal. America must be destroyed for 'people of color' to be free.
To prepare the path for the death of America, the intermediate steps BLM demands are the massive redistribution of white wealth and earnings to blacks, and reparations from the government to the tune of trillions of dollars for past mistreatment. They also insist on imposing an ideological straightjacket in our schools, colleges, and the public square, to where nothing negative can be said about their movement.
Today, they promote grievance and resentment among non-white groups. BLM uses language as propaganda and violence as psychological terror. Many in their movement approve of the premeditated murder of police officers, and some justify the killing of all white people. For social justice to be achieved, a violent revolution is required.
Most white people today can probably protest that they have never mistreated anyone because of their race, or never thought themselves superior to individuals of other races. That cuts no mustard with Black Lives Matter. They are not talking about individual acts of racism, or what any white person says or does. They are talking about an invention they call “systematic structural racism.”
It is defined this way: “Structural racism is not something that a few people or institutions choose to practice. Instead, it has been a feature of the social, economic, and political systems in which we all exist. It is a system in which public policies, institutional practices, cultural representations, and other norms work in various, often reinforcing ways to perpetuate racial group inequity.”
The only solution is for people of color to take control of society and practice racism against white people. Vengeance, inflamed by envy and covetousness, is necessary.
This ideology comes from Critical Race Theory, which was conceived by an idol of Barack Hussein Obama named Derrick Bell. Bell derived his theory from Cultural Marxism, which was dreamed up by the Frankfort School to destroy Western Civilization. Indeed it vilifies all aspects of the West, and from it comes the idea that only white people can be racist.
Discover the Networks defines Bell’s concept thus: “Critical Race Theory contends that America is permanently racist to its core and that consequently, the nation's legal structures are, by definition, racist and invalid. Members of "oppressed" racial groups are entitled—in fact, obligated—to determine for themselves” what society will be like.
From that came 'political correctness' and the dreaded 'white privilege.' All white people are, therefore, evil because of the color of their skin and worthy only of debasement if not mass extermination.
Noel Ignatiev invented White Privilege. Wouldn’t you know it; he was a white professor at Harvard, a communist who worshiped the most prolific mass murderers in human history, Josef Stalin and Chairman Mao. Like many ‘progressives,’ he called for the abolition of the white race, and coined the slogan, “Treason to whiteness is loyalty to humanity.”
Yusra Khogali is a founder of the Toronto branch of Black Lives Matter. She issued this statement: “Whiteness is not humanness. In fact, white skin is sub-human. White people are recessive genetic defects. This is factual. White people need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. Black people simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”
The Activities of Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter's primary activity is rioting, looting, vandalism, assault, and arson, along with the occasional murder of a police officer. They employ some unusual chants, such as "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!" and "Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon!"
In the Baltimore riots of 2015, 350 businesses were vandalized, 150 vehicles burnt, 60 buildings set on fire, and 20 cops were injured.
As always, when they riot, BLM taunts the police, throws rocks, bottles, and firebombs at them, calls them every vulgar name in the book, and if a police officer is hurt or killed, they break out in celebration.
Black Lives Matter has brazenly called for a race war in America, against “the white man” the “common enemy” of people of color. It encourages the execution of police officers. “Kill that white mother******!” is the shout often heard at riots.
One BLM spokesman cheerfully hopes, “we will witness more executions and killing of white people and cops than we ever have before. He also asserted, “It’s open season on killing white people and crackers.”
In 2015, 150 Black Lives Matter members stormed Dartmouth University’s library, screaming, “Fu** you, you filthy white fu**s!” “Fu** you and your comfort!,” and “Fu** you, you racist sh**!”
One Black Lives Matter leader screamed at a CNN reporter, “The less white babies on this planet, the less of you white adults we got! I hope they kill all the white babies! Kill ’em all right now! Kill ’em! Kill your grandkids! Kill yourself! Coffin, bitch! Go lay in a coffin! Kill yourself!”
In Seattle in 2017, a female Back Lives Matter activist yelled these words at the crowd through a microphone: “Fuck white supremacy, fuck the U.S. empire, fuck your imperialist ass lives. That shit gotta go. Fuck that shit. You know what America thrives off of? Capitalism. We use our mother fucking, fucking black and brown bodies to live and survive while white people own fucking properties. White people, give your fucking money, your fucking house, your fucking property, we need it fucking all. You need to pay black and indigenous people right now. Pay the fuck up, pay the fuck up. It ain’t just your fucking time, it’s your fucking money, and now your fucking life is devoted to social change. We’re all operating under white supremacy. And we need to start killing people. First off, we need to start killing the White House. The White House must die. The White House, your fucking White House, your fucking Presidents, they must go! Fuck the White House! Capitalism is fucking racism!”
Defacing monuments built to honor white people is a favorite target. In faraway London recently, a memorial to Queen Victoria was defaced by Black Lives Matter with vile messages such as “murderer,” “slag,” “slave owner,” “rapist,” whore,” and of course, “racist. ”
Public Schools Promote Black Lives Matter
It started when Seattle teachers put together a “Black Lives Matter at School Day” in 2016, designed to be “ a very politicized action for racial justice in education." Soon after that, prompted by 250 professors at teachers colleges, the National Education Association teachers union resolved to endorse “BLM at School Day” nationwide, later expanded to “BLM at School National Week of Action.” Dozens of our major cities now participate.
The idea is to “make their classrooms and schools sites of resistance to white supremacy, as well as sites for knowing the hope and beauty in Blackness.” That means to indoctrinate students into the race-based worldview of Black Lives Matter.
BLM demands “new uprising for racial justice” in our public schools along with “an immediate end to the criminalization and dehumanization of Black youth,” including “an end to arrests of students, the removal of police from schools, and the reallocation of funds from police and punitive school discipline practices to restorative services.”
For the youngest students, BLM produced a Starter Kit that includes this statement: "Everybody has the right to choose their own gender by listening to their own heart and mind. Everybody gets to choose if they are a girl or a boy or both or neither or something else, and no one else gets to choose for them.”
A textbook was created for the occasion entitled Teaching for Black Lives. It begins, “Black students' minds and bodies are under attack. The school-to-prison-pipeline is a major contributor to the overall epidemic of police violence and mass incarceration that functions as one of the sharpest edges of structural racism in the United States. Black residents’ lives are meaningless to the American Empire.”
Teaching for Black Lives presents the heroes of American History as Malcolm X, Stokely Carmichael, the Black Power movement, the Nation of Islam, and the Black Panthers. The Panthers get a whole chapter devoted to them as “one of the most important human rights organizations of the late 1960s,” with an honorable and needful “revolutionary socialist ideology.” The insane violence of that group is not mentioned.
The BLM curriculum is intended to create fear, anger, and resentment in black students, guilt, and shame in white students. The scheme is to brainwash little children into believing their country is a place of the awful oppression and always has been. It is to make militant activists out of the students on behalf of the extreme radical left.
Support for Black Lives Matter
Here in June 2020, in response to weeks of rioting led by Black Lives Matter, corporate America has poured out $565 million for BLM and other racialists' social justice grievance groups. Yes, they rewarded violence and mayhem with oodles of cash. Microsoft was one of the biggest givers. They follow the lead of Barack Hussein Obama and the Democrat Party.
The Democrat Party issued an official resolution in 2015 to formally endorse Black Lives Matter. The resolution shockingly stated that the Democrat Party agreed with BLM that there is "an unacceptable epidemic of extrajudicial killings of unarmed black men, women, and children at the hands of police.”
Despite their love of racism, violence, and communism, Black Lives Matter leaders were frequent guests at the Obama White House, attending at least seven meetings with President Obama. They told reporters that Obama “offered us a lot of encouragement with his background as a community organizer” and urged them to “keep speaking truth to power.”
On National Public Radio, Obama said he approved of Black Lives Matter as a positive force in America that radiates "sunlight" on the racist police. He likened them to the abolition of slavery movement. Despite the BLM violence and incendiary rhetoric, Obama heaped praise on them. He said their campaign might be “contentious and messy” and that “sometimes progress is a little uncomfortable,” but ultimately, their work is wonderful and necessary.
In 2016, after receiving the endorsement of Obama and the Democrat Party, money began to flood in. $130 million came from George Soros and the Ford Foundation. Soros had been the first big backer of BLM, giving them $33 million in 2014.
Now here in 2020, support for Black Lives Matter has exploded, with academia, politicians, the media, and corporations falling all over themselves to jump on the bandwagon. Corporation websites feature the BLM logo in spades.
Suddenly, anyone against Black Lives Matter is branded a hopeless racist. Self-loathing whites are kneeling in front of BLM members on the streets, riven with ‘white guilt,’ in acts of racial masochism. Millions of Americans are afraid to exercise their right to free speech so as not to offend those who loathe their country. People are being shunned, harassed, mobbed, and fired from their jobs for criticizing or even for merely refusing to glorify Black Lives Matter.
That is all quite remarkable considering BLM's stated goal is to destroy the American way of life by overthrowing our political and economic systems and replacing them with totalitarian communism.
This has even infected the company that owns my beloved HubPages, Maven Media. Formerly committed to free speech and the free exchange of ideas, Maven recently caved to pressure from its employees and shut down its website Blue Lives Matter. The site was in support of cops and their families. It featured some stories that showed how police are exposed daily to abuse, assaults, and shootings and other stories that portrayed kind and heroic deeds done by cops for the public they serve and protect.
The workers at Maven described Blue Lives Matter as "embarrassing," "a disgrace," and "horrible.” Said a spokeswoman, “I don’t care whether or not they make us money. It’s morally wrong to continue platforming a site that advocates for the fascistic oppression of all Americans but especially black people, other POCs, LGBTQ, and the disabled.”
Just the other day, Major League Baseball broke my heart by coming out with love for Black Lives Matter. All 30 teams displayed signs: “Black Lives Matter. United For Change.” The general manager of the New York Mets added, “We have a systemic racism problem in the country. It affects all of our institutions. We felt like we could amplify the Black Lives Matter message.”
If all that wasn’t enough, the richest man in the world, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, felt it was important enough to berate one of his customers for saying "All Lives Matter." Bezos only supports the concept that Black Lives Matter.
Sesame Street and Nickelodeon are now brainwashing toddlers with the BLM worldview. Even Jews are joining in, although Black Lives Matter is anti-Semitic and supports the annihilation of Israel, which it calls a “genocidal apartheid state.”
The mayor of Washington, D.C., named the area in front of the White House, whose occupant she and BLM hate, Black Lives Matter Plaza, and painted that name on a public street in gigantic letters at the expense of taxpayers.
Black Lives Matter: What Do They Want?
Several times, Black Lives Matter has issued a list of demands that it deems 'non-negotiable.' The most recent list includes, “The Seattle Police Department and attached court system are beyond reform. We do not request reform; we demand abolition. We demand that the Seattle Council and the Mayor defund and abolish the Seattle Police Department and the attached Criminal Justice Apparatus. This means 100% of funding, including existing pensions for Seattle Police.”
On a broader scale, BLM issued a national ultimatum, “We demand a retrial of all People in Color currently serving a prison sentence for violent crime, by a jury of their [black] peers in their community. Dismantle the patriarchal practice. Disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure. 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.” BLM also asks that $15 million in American taxpayer money be spent on providing summer jobs for — not Black Americans — but illegal aliens.
Here is a partial list of past demands that are still in force:
End The War On Black People! We demand an end to the war against Black people. Since this country's inception, there have been named and unnamed wars on our communities. We demand an end to the criminalization, incarceration, and killing of our people. This includes:
- An immediate end to the criminalization and dehumanization of Black youth across all areas of society including, but not limited to, our nation's justice and education systems, social service agencies, and media and pop culture. This includes an end to zero-tolerance school policies and arrests of students, the removal of police from schools, and the reallocation of funds from police and punitive school discipline practices to restorative services.
- An end to capital punishment.
- An end to money bail, mandatory fines, fees, court surcharges, and "defendant funded" court proceedings.
- An end to the use of past criminal history to determine eligibility for housing, education, licenses, voting, loans, employment, and other services and needs.
- An end to the war on Black immigrants, including the repeal of the 1996 crime and immigration bills, an end to all deportations, immigrant detention, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, and mandated legal representation in immigration court.
- An end to the war on Black trans, queer, and gender-nonconforming people, including their addition to anti-discrimination civil rights protections to ensure they have full access to employment, health, housing, and education.
- An end to the mass surveillance of Black communities, and the end to the use of technologies that criminalize and target our communities (including IMSI catchers, drones, body cameras, and predictive policing software).
- The demilitarization of law enforcement, including law enforcement in schools and on college campuses.
- An immediate end to the privatization of police, prisons, jails, probation, parole, food, phone, and all other criminal justice-related services.
- Until we achieve a world where cages are no longer used against our people, we demand an immediate change in conditions and an end to public jails, detention centers, youth facilities, and prisons, as we know them. This includes the end of solitary confinement, the end of the shackling of pregnant people, access to quality healthcare, and effective measures to address the needs of our youth, queer, gender-nonconforming, and trans families.
BLM demands: “Reparations for the systemic denial of access to high-quality educational opportunities in the form of full and free access for all Black people (including undocumented and currently and formerly incarcerated people) to lifetime education including free access and open admissions to public community colleges and universities, technical education (technology, trade and agricultural), educational support programs, retroactive forgiveness of student loans, and support for lifetime learning programs.
“Reparations for the continued divestment from, discrimination toward and exploitation of our communities in the form of a guaranteed minimum livable income for all Black people.”
Yet another list features: “An end to all forms of discrimination and the full recognition of our [Blacks’] human rights”;
- “An immediate end to police brutality and the murder of Black people and all oppressed people”;
- “An end to gentrification”;
- “An aggressive attack against all laws, policies, and entities that disenfranchise any community from expressing themselves at the ballot” (e.g., Voter ID laws);
- “A public education system that teaches the rich history of Black people”;
- “The release of all U.S. political prisoners”;
- “An end to the military-industrial complex that incentivizes private corporations to profit off of the death and destruction of Black and Brown communities across the globe";
- “An end to “the use of profiling on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin or religion by law-enforcement agencies”;
- “The release, by the office of U.S. attorney general, of the names of all police officers involved in killing black people within the last five years so they can be brought to justice.”
Black Lives Matter: Analysis & Conclusion
I am a ‘cold hard facts’ man, one of the original myth busters. My calling is to reveal false narratives of propaganda because they are not Heaven sent. Any movement that rests on a foundation of lies, deceptions, and half-truths hails from the other place where the Father of Lies dwells.
After a lengthy examination of the claims made by Black Lives Matter, I have found that there is no unwarranted level of police violence against unarmed black men. There is no "epidemic" of racist cops killing black suspects. Police killings of blacks are 80% fewer today than 50 years ago.
Studies show that police officers are less likely to shoot Black criminals than White criminals. A lawman is twenty times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a lawman. Black males are 6% of the population, but 42% of cop killers. The police killed nine unarmed black men last year. Lightning killed seventeen unarmed black men.
Science says America is among the three least racist countries on Earth. Blacks have a standard of living in America TEN TIMES higher than in any Black country. Black Americans live to an average age of 75, but in Sub-Saharan Africa, their lifespan is only 48. What is more important than long life?
The real epidemic is black on white violent crime, including rape and murder. Maybe the BLM false reality comes from television, where Whites commit twice as many violent crimes against Blacks when in the real world, Blacks commit twelve times more violent crimes against White victims.
The object of most of the BLM hatred is President Trump. But according to statistics from the FBI, Trump has helped save more than 1,000 black lives by reversing the murder wave that emerged under Obama, what was called the “Ferguson Effect.”
The most dangerous place for a black person to be is not in the presence of a police officer, and not in a neighborhood of supposedly racist white people, but in a black community, especially a city or town that votes for Democrat politicians.
It is not true that the police, for no reason, regularly stop black men. The police do not stop them more often than white men. White police officers are not more likely to shoot minority citizens than non-white officers. Black police officers do most shootings of black suspects.
A new poll shows that 72% of African-Americans are satisfied with their local police departments. Only 5% are very dissatisfied. Forty-one percent of African-Americans report that a police officer has helped keep them or their family members safe in a dangerous situation. Only 33% of white people say the same.
People who participate in rioting and looting are criminals. They are violent, vandalizing thieves. Black Lives Matter, founded and funded by communists, organizes race riots. They do it because they hate white people. They hate honesty, harmony, happiness, good manners, and good morals. They demand power without earning it. They demand wealth without working for it. They love to intimidate and terrorize innocent people and ruin what good people have made.
Just the other day, a Catholic school teacher was fired for posting on a personal Facebook page, “BLM is a terrorist organization.” According to the FBI, that is true. BLM is considered a Black Identity Extremist Terrorist Group.
Systematic structural racism does not exist. Black Lives Matter is a racist, violent, destructive hate group. Like its key money man, George Soros, it seeks to annihilate America.
