Many Americans have been divided when discussing the Black Lives Matter Organization (BLM). Some sincerely believe they are doing the right thing by supporting the Black Lives Matter Organization. Many well-intentioned Americans have joined or donated to this organization believing that they are supporting a legit movement to help Black Americans.
Some argue the Black Lives Matter Organization founded by Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi, are a communist organization that has strong ties to terrorists and solely exists to destroy our Constitutional Republic. This group of thinkers has asked some hard questions; “if BLM was indeed founded to help Black Americans then why did BLM align itself with Planned Parenthood, who has murdered millions of unborn black babies? Why hasn’t BLM been to Chicago to protest and ask the Democrat Mayor why she isn’t doing something to stop the senseless killing of blacks in the inner city?”
These are great questions. Why isn’t BLM doing something about these ongoing tragedies?
Which side of the fence do you fall on? Which argument is a true representation of the facts? Why don’t we just look at the evidence and then decide.
My grandfather always told me if you looked at your closest friends and acquaintances – it would be an average of yourself. So why don’t we take an objective truth-finding tour of the key players in the Black Lives Matter movement while we apply my grandfather’s words of wisdom.
I think it is fair to start with the three founders of BLM: Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi.
It is a known fact BLM was founded by Marxists/communists born from the leading communist organization in America today – Freedom Road Socialist Organization and Liberation Road. Alicia Garza has held executive leadership positions in several Freedom Road Socialist Organizations. Opal Tometi can be seen in a photo with Venezuela’s communist dictator Nicolas Maduro, and Patrise Cullors has called for BLM members/followers to “rise up” and “burn everything down” in cities across America.
One can also do a quick google search and see where BLM Founder Patrisse Cullors openly admits on video that BLM Founders are indeed “trained Marxist”. As the evidence suggests, Black Lives Matter was founded by radical extremists who are perfectly pleased with the rioting, looting, vandalism, and violence that have plagued our cities for the past several weeks. BLM are Marxist and that is what violent revolutionaries do, right?
Let’s look at some of BLM’s “inspirational” idols and cohorts.
One of the BLM Co-founder Patrisse Cullors stated to Cosmo that Assata Shakur is one of the leaders who inspired her. In case that name doesn’t sound familiar to you, Shakur’s real name is Joanne Chesimard, and she is wanted by the FBI as a “domestic terrorist” for murdering a police officer, escaping prison, and hiding out in Cuba for decades.
The evidence seems to paint a clear picture of what Black Lives Matter organization is and what they believe. One only must take a cursory look via any search engine to see overwhelming evidence that proves BLM is a Marxist organization working with terrorists. For instance, one of the board of directors for the leftist group Thousand Currents, which handles donations to Black Lives Matter is Susan Rosenberg. She was identified as the vice-chair of the Thousand Currents board of directors on the organization’s website until recently when the page was taken down after the conservative think tank Capital Research Center detailed her involvement with a communist terrorist group that had carried out bombings in New York and Washington, D.C., in the early 1980s.
Rosenberg’s involvement with the May 19 Communist Organization earned her a spot on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. She was arrested in New Jersey in 1984 while unloading 740 pounds of stolen explosives and a sub-machine gun from a truck.
Rosenberg was released from prison in 2001 after her sentence was commuted by President Bill Clinton. When pardoned, Rosenburg only served 16 of her 58-year prison sentence. (You can see the Fox News report here https://youtu.be/nR_5Mjp1fNo)
BLM supports the destruction of America, and Americans need to educate themselves very quickly before it gets completely out of hand. For those of you supporting the BLM organization; you have endorsed it and the leadership is just laughing at you. America cannot afford to capitulate and hide behind political correctness any longer. BLM is a communist organization that is terrorizing our country. Black Lives Matter rioters have attacked statues and attempted to destroy monuments across America including the monuments that memorialize the exact thing they claim to be fighting for, freedom.
The iconic Lincoln Memorial has been attacked, they want the statue of Ulysses S. Grant removed, they have targeted the Emancipation Memorial, a D.C. statue depicting a freed slave in front of President Abraham Lincoln. The statue was unveiled in 1876 to commemorate the Emancipation Proclamation and was funded by actual freed slaves. This is not about Black Lives; it is about control and power.
Just look at Greater New York Black Lives Matter President Hawk Newsome who warned “if this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.” Replace it with what? Communism? Sharia Law?
How is it our Politicians, Pastors, State and local leaders are so ignorant about what is happening? I expect Politicians to be weak, although it is not justified, but why don’t Pastors have the discernment to know the difference between good and evil? While you Pastors are preaching sermons about supporting this movement, the BLM organization and leadership is planning your destruction. BLM activist Shaun King wants symbols of your Christianity eradicated.
Black Lives Matter doesn’t hide its radical positions, just go to their website and read it for yourselves.
The group’s website proudly proclaims, “this is the revolution.” These Communist Revolutionaries are following Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, the “45 Communist Goals to destroy America”, the Communist Manifesto, and the Maoist playbook. The Maoist revolutionaries also vandalized temples tore down statues and destroyed artifacts and history. Anyone who opposed them was taken to re-education camps. Is that what we’re experiencing today? If you look at the objective truth, the evidence, and actions, it is clear that BLM does not care about Black Lives. It is just a flashpoint to launch their campaign to destroy America.
