The destruction and mayhem we’ve witnessed at the hands of self-identified Marxist organizations like Black Lives Matter is sad and terrible, but it serves to remind us of the true motivations behind their so-called social justice agenda — the destruction of our great republic.
The BLM movement began gaining momentum during the waning years of Obama’s “post-racial” presidency during the last round of racially motivated rioting and violence following the death of Obama’s imaginary son, Trayvon Martin. Unfortunately, there were other groups on the rise at the time.
In November 2015, the Afrikan Black Coalition — a group founded in 2003 to connect activists across the University of California system — blamed “white America” for the injustices “black folks” have suffered under a document written by “white men” and called for a new Constitution that serves “the interests of black people.” Oh, and if they didn’t get one, white America would get “the bullet.”
“[We] have come to realize that the Constitution is the root of virtually all our problems in America. In order to understand the injustices against Black folks in United States, we must look back to its foundation. The U.S. is a country that was founded on slavery, genocide, rape, and white-male patriarchy. A body cannot be separated from its head and remain living.
“The Constitution and all the evil that it allows to be perpetuated are the head of White America, or more so corrupt America. Racist America. … A Constitution written by only white men will never serve the interests of black people. The Constitution was written for the ruling class of white men which constructed whiteness to be more valuable than any other race.
“It is time to claim the Declaration of Independence and apply it to our struggle as colonized black people in America. The United States has us; it is time we demand a new constitution or tell America that she will get the bullet.” (emphasis mine)
Killing white America was a common theme at the time. In the summer of 2015, Black Lives Matter openly called for the murder of whites. And during one of his rallies, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan solicited volunteers to “rise up and kill those that kill us.”
“I’m looking for ten thousand in the midst of the million. Ten thousand men who say, ‘Death is sweeter than continued life under tyranny.
“Death is sweeter than to continue to live and bury our children, while white folks give the killer hamburgers.
“Death is sweeter, than watching us slaughter each other, to the joy of a 400-year-old enemy. Yes, death is sweeter.
“So if the federal government will not intercede in our affairs, then we must rise up and kill those who kill us. Stalk them and kill them and let them feel the pain of death that we are feeling.” (emphasis mine)
Killing white America wasn’t the only goal of these “social justice warriors,” they were also calling on the U.S. government to pay reparations to black America — an idea that received support from the United Nations.
In September 2016, the UN released a report demanding that the U.S. provide reparations to African-Americans due to the history of slavery in America and the link slavery had to modern injustices against black America.
“In particular, the legacy of colonial history, enslavement, racial subordination and segregation, racial terrorism and racial inequality in the United States remains a serious challenge, as there has been no real commitment to reparations and to truth and to reconciliation for people of African descent.
“Contemporary police killings and the trauma that they create are reminiscent of the past racial terror of lynching.” (emphasis mine)
Yep! You read that correctly! According to the New World Order gang, whenever a police officer shoots a black person in the line of duty, it’s exactly the same thing as lynching.
The UN suggestion was ignored by Washington at the time, but the current political climate mixed with BLM rioting and violence has revived the discussion.
Riding the coattails of the BLM mayhem, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) recently reintroduced a bill she sponsored last year (H.R.40) that would establish a committee to develop a reparations plan. Because, you know, it’s time.
“We now have an opportunity, through H.R. 40, to have the highest level of discussion about systemic racism and race. And we are able to do it in a manner that is bringing people together; that acknowledges that Black lives matter; and acknowledges that there has to be a response.
“There is no better time for H.R. 40 to be part of the national dialogue, and part of the national legislative response.”
Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) also introduced reparations legislations called the BREATHE Act — an obvious reference to the George Floyd incident. Their bill would, among other things, establish a reparations program and begin defunding police and other law enforcement.
Some aren’t waiting on Congress. The California Assembly passed (60-14) a bill to establish a reparations task force. The bill, a top priority of the California Legislative Black Caucus, addresses what CLBC leader Shirley Weber (the bill’s sponsor) says is “The discriminatory practices of the past [that] echo into the everyday lives of today’s Californians.”
For the record, California joined the Union as a free state in 1850. And John C. Frémont, an abolitionist, served as the state’s first U.S. Senator. Frémont would later become the first Republican nominee for president in 1856.
Slavery is a sad part of American history, but it’s just that . . . history. The agenda of Black Lives Matter is nothing but a plan to destroy our republic in order to achieve their Marxist/Socialist/Communist objective of fundamentally transforming America.
