When You Say “Black Lives Matter” – You’re Supporting Radical Leftists, Not Black Lives

“Black lives matter” is a trap.

You’d be hard-pressed to say they don’t, of course. Of course black lives matter but so do all lives of any color. All lives truly do matter.

That protest chant has a loaded meaning, however.

When you say “Black lives matter” what you’re really saying is that you support the far-left extreme of the Democrat Party.

What is Black Lives Matter About?

Black Lives Matter isn’t really about improving black lives in America. It’s about padding coffers of the Democrat Party. And it pushes a radical, anti-America agenda. Black Lives Matter is essentially a marketing tool and the latest attempt by Democrats to pander to black voters who likely get stiffed in the end.

One look at the Black Lives Matter website shows that it convinces supporters that all black people in America and around the world are victims of a white person’s world.

“We are working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically targeted for demise,” BLM says on its About page.

In another section of the site under “What We Believe” you see the word “comrade” used several times. And then there’s this statement that should make anyone question what they’re really saying the next time they say “Black Lives Matter”:

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. We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.

Is that what you support? Probably not.

    Among other things, notice that the BLM Foundation statement of goals printed above uses the phrase “mothers, parents and children”.
    That is not a typo. It is deliberate. The word “fathers” is deliberately omitted.
    There is a “father word” in the statement. It is in the sentence “We dismantle the patriarchal practice …”
    “Patriarchal” in this context is a disparaging reference to fathers. In BLM philosophy, fathers are, at best, superfluous; at worst, they are useless baggage.
    I am not engaging in hyperbole when I say that the Black Lives Matters Foundation is an evil organization.
    And, yes, for the record, I do believe that the lives of Black persons matter, as do the lives of all human persons, of whatever hue.

      Remember when people were raised not to even consider the color of a person’s skin? Now you can’t read a news report without a person being identified by their color. Can’t think of anything more racist than that. Good comment!

        Lol! I’m white and I’m racist against white people. Go figure. If you’re for anything other than whitey you must be virtue signalling. OK, whatever. I live in this town. I know racism exists here. I’m white, so someone will come up and tell you some racist joke because they think your just like them. Bullshit! We’re not all the same. We’re not all homogeneous. I don’t like discrimination at all. Whether it be racism, sexism, ageism, sexual orientationism, laborism. To hell with the ism schism.

      I am not exaggeratting when I tell you that Edward B Connolly so fundamentally misunderstands both Marxism and BLM that much of the violence we see these days is the fault of people like him.

        That’s hilarious on a lot of levels but not at all true. You should look up the agenda for BLM before you go running your mouth. If you’re against destroying the nuclear family concept, it’s the group for you. However, last we checked, this is America and America thrives on strong family units.

          What bullshit. It’s the system that has destroyed the family unit. Republican policies have destroyed the family unit. Like healthcare, college tuition and putting food on the table aren’t family issues. Republicans are mostly responsible for destroying the family unit. You can’t have it both ways. It has nothing to do with blm.

          It’s the economic policies of the Reich Wing of the Republican Party that destroys the family unit not blm. Seems like blm is in support of black father’s gunned downed by cops. You must be on a mirror blm site set up by radical Reich wingers.

    You gotta stop telling yourselves you’re not racists. There is nothing wrong with supporting blm. When a white person with felonies has a better chance of getting a job than a black person with no criminal background that tells me all I need to know about racism in this country.Also, racial profiling is like the eugenics of criminology. Black people are target by cops. I could go on and on about everything from bank loans to college. Most Trumpians are racists. You don’t wanna wear a mask but you have no problem wearing a sheet over your head. R.I.P. Breonna Taylor!

      You’re really good at cramming all the talking points into your comments but almost none of it makes sense. Do a little research on Black Lives Matter as an organization. It’s an arm of the Democrat Party. There’s nothing more pathetic than a woke, self-loathing white liberal. Sad.

        Canary you’re just worried about losing your advantage. Our white privilege. Scared of having to compete on a level playing field. And reading your comments I don’t blame you. You should be worried.

          Oh pfew. For a second there, we thought you were blaming us. Growing up in the coal region, there are very few privileges no matter what color you are. Hard work and dedication keep us on top, not our skin color. You sound extremely racist, btw.

      Affirmative Action has stolen millions of jobs from qualified Americans, solely based on race…THAT’S about as racist as it gets. BLM is a self-admitted Marxist anarchy group, designed and built to overthrow America. You’re a brainless lemming fool Bourne. Wake up. The Radical Left eats their own, when they’re no longer useful idiots or woke enough.

        In addition to that, the same people that proclaimed that Trump would destroy America, are the very ones who ACTUALLY ARE destroying, looting and burning America to the ground. What mindless hypocrisy.

        First off Pt, affirmative action was needed because the wealth gap in between whites and minorites was 90 to 10. It’s gotten a little bit better but it’s nowhere near equal. Without economic justice there will always be racism. But my question is where do you actually see affirmative action? I reeled off a stat about white people with felonies having a better chance than black people with no criminal background. Where’s the affirmative action? Bank loans. Where’s affirmative action? The only time black people see affirmative action is when they’re getting beat up and shot by cops. Let’s be honest Pt. You’re just worried about losing your white privilege. Our white advantage. Your scared of having to compete with minorities because you know your inferior.

          Wow…i gave you the benefit of the doubt, but you’re plum loco.
          …the only thing that concerns me, and many others, is the brainwashing that has occured in our young men and women.
          Things are (were) better for ALL colors, creeds and nationalities, more than ever before, in history, until the mindless, baseless injection of the race baiting and race wars being used to control and whip up division.
          …Jason…YOU are perpetuating the racial divisiveness, hatred, segregation and separationist mentality that you claim to stand for. Take back control of your mind…it’s too valuable to waste.

      I worked in HR and that is not true. Black people were hired because of their qualifications, not skin color. What about the black on black killings in Chicago? You upset about that? Where is your voice for those children? Police brutality and racism are 2 different issues. Black people do commit a lot of crimes….white privilege…so ridiculous, maybe for the super, super wealthy..but not for the average Joe getting up every day to work regardless of the pay because they know they have mouths to feed and bills to pay… they do not depend on the government for handouts. No one wants to hire people who are felons…regardless of your color, but they have to. You sound like you would hire a black person over a white…isn’t that racist? I was pulled over by black cops for no reason whatsoever….I did not scream racism, and I was doing nothing wrong..but I did not run like criminals do. What about sports? Black people dominate sports…you not crying about that? BLM is bad…you don’t burn anything to get results or kill innocent, innocent people….please tell me how things have changed with the lawlessness and chaos going on? Also, please answer about Chicago…ty

        I love how you guys talk about black on black crime. Nobody talks about white on white crime and that happens pretty frequently. What about all the white psycho serial killers and mass murdererers? 95 percent of them happen to be white. What are you doing about that? See, the biggest crime there is is POVERTY. Minorities unfortunately are the people who are most affected by poverty. What are you doing about that? Then they say that blm is a radical leftist agenda. The only policy blm as an organization has endorsed is defunding the police. In fact, most black people voted for Biden who policy speaking is a centrist. And funny how radical blm is but a president who teargases protesters and brings in military secret police into cities isn’t radical. And your so constitutional. What a joke.

          July 23, 2020 at 2:39 pm

          Serial killers and blacks killing each other every day are two different issues. You did not answer the question….typical…. Are you saying minorities are in poverty due to not being hired? Seriously, Amazon and warehouses in Hazleton have all colors of workers and some of the pay scales are great, Hershey, too!…Maybe you should read the constitution, you have the right to peaceful protests, not kill people (David Dorn) fantastic human being and black, burn your own community and federal buildings which working people (taxpayers) now have to rebuild all because you have displayed anger…get over yourself and be a productive human being…everyone has unfortunate experiences…it is part of life, but you accept, cope and move forward…..stop making excuses because of the color of your skin…everyone is tired of hearing it.

          If you are more comfortable in a white community at nighttime than a black community, even by just a little bit, then 90% of what you wrote is untrue, hypocritical, and you need to reevaluate what you’re thinking and consuming.

    The USSR and China tried to achieve full Marxism. They gave it their best shot. Tens of millions of people died. But they tried the utopia thing. BLM is a thin cover at another try at Marxism. Maybe 100 million more dead will bring utopia. Anybody buying into this Marxism now is truly naive or just plain stupid.
