BLM: A Morally Bankrupt Front for Democrats and Destruction
By Dennis Jamison —July 7, 2020
Where was BLM to protest the black children who were senselessly murdered? Black lives matter? Where were the marches? Where were the protesters in the cities where such senseless killings took place? One man in Minneapolis with a criminal background was murdered and the whole nation is in an uproar. Ten innocent children were murdered and not a peep out of BLM, or Democrat supporters of BLM. Who cares?
- Carson Walker, 4 years old, of Galivants Ferry, North Carolina;
- Jace Young, 6 years old, of San Francisco, California;
- Natalia Wallace, 7 years old, of Chicago, Illinois;
- Royta Giles, Jr., 8 years old, of Hoover, Alabama;
- Secoriea Turner, 8 years old, of Atlanta Georgia;
- Natalia Wallace, 7 years old, of Chicago, Illinois;
- Davon McNeil, 11 years old, Washington, D.C.;
- Elayna Saidee, 12 years old,, and Makeliah Osorno, 11 years old, of Delano, California
Another 6-year-old boy from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a 14-yea-old boy from Chicago, Illinois were also murdered over the Independence Day weekend. The boy in Chicago was shot in the back as he was watching a fireworks display. The reports indicate that four shooters approached a large group of people who had gathered to watch the fireworks and began shooting into the crowd just before midnight. An 11-year-old and a 15-year-old were also wounded.
If Black lives matter, how much more outrageous could the massacre of innocents be? Not a peep came from BLM, or Democrat supporters of BLM, or Democrat leaders. Who truly cares? Yet, who cries for the innocent children whose lives were destroyed all too early? There apparently is no value in crying over murdered children. In essence, BLM supports the murder of babies in the wombs of would be mothers, so morality is not a real issue here. For Antifa and BLM, it is more about raising hell rather than genuine concern for human life—except when an occasional black guy is killed by a white cop.
One needs to realize that most of June was consumed with the violent protests from the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May. Antifa and Black Lives Matter terrorist groups essentially had their run of the streets with unrestricted violence that primarily occurred primarily in Democrat-governed states, in mainly 30 Democrat-run cities. From Floyd’s murder, Americans of all creeds, of all all races, of all national origins grieved; some were stirred enough to take their concerns to the streets in peaceful protests. But, genuine demonstrations of empathy over police brutality were hijacked by disingenuous and rabid anarchist, Antifa, and BLM mobs seeking destruction of whatever they could get away with, and they essentially raised hell—literally.
If regular citizens think that it was just a sudden emotional outburst by those concerned, this would be wrong. One month after Floyd’s murder, Hawke Newsome, a Black Lives Matter leader from the greater New York area, appeared on Fox News and boldly threatened to burn the country down if demands aren’t met: “If this country doesn’t give us what we want then we will burn down the system and replace it. All right. And, I could be speaking figuratively, I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation.”
Well, no. It is definitely not all right—not his distorted history, nor the threat—veiled or otherwise. Newsome’s essential narrative was about America being born in violence. This comes from a simplistic view of history and from two foundations: Black Liberation Theology and its origins in Marxist dogma. In case regular citizens think that this is just one miseducated guy’s perspective, it is wrong. Antifa and BLM groups are Marxist oriented and trained—especially the leaders—someone like Mr. Newsome. A few years ago, a similar strong statement was made by a young BLM leader.
In 2016, during the election campaign, Blake Simons, who was at the time, the Deputy Communication Director of the Afrikan Black Coalition, wrote an article entitled “A New Constitution of the Bullet.” Simons stated that after months of participating in the “Black Lives Matter” movement, he came to the realization that “the Constitution is the root of virtually all our problems in America.”
He specifically revealed this political perspective:
The U.S. is a country that was founded on slavery, genocide, rape, and white male patriarchy. The colonizers that we condemn for enslaving Afikans and murdering indigenous peoples are the same people that produced and upheld the document we use to govern our nation to this day. Our bloodshed is rooted in this nation’s founding document, The Constitution.
Blake Simons is still organizing. He was at a rally in Berkeley, California, being a U.C. Berkeley alumnus, he was stirring up crowds in the midst of the Floyd debacle. He told a crowd, among other things, that change comes from direct action, not from the ballot box. Simons and Newsome must be making former community organizer and President Barack Obama quite proud. Why would that be? While he was in office, a while after the Ferguson, Missouri protests, President Obama welcomed representatives of BLM into the White House and praised the young activists. Obama explained at the time:
“They are much better organizers than I was when I was their age, and I am confident that they are going to take America to new heights.” He explained that they reminded him of older, existing civil rights organizations. Such a statement had little relevance to the main impetus behind the Civil Rights Movement as Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. never condoned violence. Rev. Dr. King was likely one of the most important catalysts for change regarding racial relations in the United States in his short lifetime. It is highly doubtful that King would have agreed with Obama in his assessment of BLM.
So, for those who are not clear, Obama was accepting, even condoning, the efforts of violence carried out by BLM militants. Some of the young activists that Obama praised are still around. Brittany Packnett was one of them. Obama said of Packnett at the time, “her voice is going to be making a difference for years to come.” He was right. Recently, she appeared on MSNBC in an interview with Brian Williams and argued that defunding the police will “keep people safer.” This was a young person Obama appointed to his “21st Century Policing Task Force” and the “Ferguson Commission,” which apparently made little impact in reforming police forces across America.
In Packnett’s interview, she went on to say that defunding police “means moving the money from an institution that is killing people to the institutions that keep people well.” In 2019, records indicate that nine black men were killed by white police officers. Nine. And, all hell is being raised due to “systemic racism.” Yet more blacks die because of the black criminals than from corrupt police. Defunding the police reflects either a very naive view or one that is locked in to the BLM mantra to defund the police, which provides a prelude to continued, unabated, and senseless violence in the inner cities.
BLM leaders are indeed taking America to new heights: BLM is doing a great job as a fundraising front for the Democrat Party as well as providing a clever front that appears genuinely concerned about racial injustice. Taking away the police will only beget more violence and civil disorder—more confusion and chaos since it is an election year.
