Nashville TN Metro Schools Exposed Teaching Communist Ideology To Students. Saying “White People Are Racists.”

 

 

 

Tenn. School English Lesson Teaches That Whites Are Racists Who Oppress Minorities

Source: TheNewAmerican.com

Written by Selwyn Duke

If you want to know why some teachers fear how virtual learning allows parents to witness their instruction, you don’t have to look further than an “English” lesson in Tennessee. In fact, one outraged father in the Metro Nashville Public School District is now pulling his seven-year-old daughter out of school because she was being taught that, as he put it, “white people are bad, mean & racist against African-Americans & Mexicans.”

The father wasn’t exaggerating, either, as his series of tweets below this article shows.

If you can’t read the text in the upper left-hand image, know that it reads:

“Sylvia had on her black shoes. They were shiny-new. Her hair was perfectly parted in two long trenzas. It was her first day at Westminster school. The halls were crowded with students. She was looking for her locker when a young white boy pointed at her and yelled, ‘Go back to the Mexican school! You don’t belong here!’”

Interestingly, Twitter hides the above school lesson image and the two below, instead presenting the warning, “The following media includes potentially sensitive content” and requiring you to click “View” to see them. So, ironically, while the Tennessee parents have to register approval to witness the images themselves on Twitter, their approval was never sought before their preteen children could view them in school.

The last two lesson images posted by the father, T. Grant Benson, are:

Unfortunately, the above isn’t uncommon in today’s schools, especially the government variety, as I pointed out in my 2018 essay “Craziness in Kids’ Classes.” Consider this excerpt, a quotation from the Weekly Standard:

The Edina [Minnesota] school district’s All for All plan mandated that henceforth “all teaching and learning experiences” would be viewed through the “lens of racial equity,” and that only “racially conscious” teachers and administrators should be hired. District leaders assured parents this would reduce Edina’s racial achievement gap, which they attributed to “barriers rooted in racial constructs and cultural misunderstandings.”

As a result, the school system’s obsession with “white privilege” now begins in kindergarten. At Edina’s Highlands Elementary School, for example, K-2 students participate in the Melanin Project. The children trace their hands, color them to reflect their skin tone, and place the cut-outs on a poster reading, “Stop thinking your skin color is better than anyone elses [sic]! — Everyone is special!”

I also related that one “teacher’s students at Rockingham Middle School in North Carolina last year [2017] were expected to issue [an apology] — standing in front of the class — for being white and Christian and having the ‘privilege’ that supposedly bestows.”

Then there’s “Verenice Gutierrez, principal of Harvey Scott K-8 School in Portland, Oregon, [who] warned in 2012 that offering an immigrant student a peanut butter and jelly sandwich could be ‘racist.’”

But I recommend you read the entire essay — it’s a real eye-opener.

It also well illustrates why “teachers in Tennessee’s Rutherford County School District (that’s Murfreesboro, which has a huge Sunni Islam population), are insisting that parents sign an agreement that, with their students doing distance learning from home, they will not monitor their children’s classes,” related commentator Andrea Widburg.

“When challenged, the school district claimed that this rule was to protect students’ academic privacy,” Widburg continued, “but we already know that the real purpose in public schools around the country is so that teachers can preach leftism.”

Yet this “type of debate is not just happening in Tennessee,” PJ Media’s Stacey Lennox writes. She continues:

A founding teacher at the Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia also took to Twitter to express concern over parent observation of virtual classes. His laments about parents, especially conservative parents, had been retweeted over 1,000 times before he locked his account. Retweeting means other people were sharing his concerns with their own followers.

Matthew Kay put this up for other teachers to respond to:

“So, this fall, virtual class discussions will have many potential spectators — parents, siblings, etc. — in the same room. We’ll never be quite sure who is overhearing the discourse. What does this do for our equity/inclusion work?”

If you need clarity of what equity and inclusion work means, you can see the pictures in the previous tweets. Matthew concluded his thread with:

“While conversations about race are in my wheelhouse, and remain a concern in this no-walls environment — I am most intrigued by the damage that ‘helicopter/snowplow’ parents can do in honest conversations about gender/sexuality,” he added. “And while ‘conservative’ parents are my chief concern — I know that the damage can come from the left too. If we are engaged in the messy work of destabilizing a kids [sic] racism or homophobia or transphobia — how much do we want their classmates’ parents piling on?”

Unfortunately, this also is nothing new. For example, school activists already recommended back in the ’90s dealing with indoctrination opposition by keeping parents in the dark and moving forward “independently.” As Imani Matthews, a teacher at the private Riverdale Country School in New York, put it circa 1998, “There isn’t a loving presenter of the other side.”

If some guy wanted to take your child somewhere, behind closed doors, but didn’t want you to know what he’d be doing with your kid, would you consent? Well, this is essentially the situation with many of today’s public school teachers, who, though also sometimes committing sexual abuse (click here), specialize in mind molestation — and have millions of victims.

So, ironically, Americans have been complaining about schools being closed due to something posing virtually no risk to a healthy child, COVID-19. But the real threat appears when public schools and even some private schools (they are not all the same) are in session. It’s then that children are infected with a moral and spiritual disease that can remain symptomatic for life and doesn’t just attack the body, but rots the soul.

Black Reverend Steven Louis Craft Exposed Black Lives Matter As A Communist Satanic Group That Brainwashes Black People.

Color-Communism-And Common Sense

by Manning Johnson

 

Manning Johnson was a full-fledged Communist for 10 years. Johnson admits he was “sold this ‘bill of goods’ by a Negro graduate of the Lenin Institute in Moscow”. If anyone is naive enough to believe communism (a.k.a. socialism) will bring about a “post-racial world,” chances are they don’t know much about communism. 

 
The subversive tactics used by communists are intentionally designed to pit one group against the other—black vs. white, man vs. woman, gay vs. straight, rich (1%) vs. poor (99%)—divide and conquer, ad nauseum.

The “struggle” is eternal. In order for the revolution to continue, the agitation of social classes and groups must never end; it must go on and on and on.

This should become clearer to the uninitiated after reading Manning Johnson’s book Color, Communism and Common Sense (1958 original publication).

Black Lives Matter: “We Will Burn Down This System” – Part II

August 2, 2020 at 5:00 am

A recent survey by the Pew Research Center found that more than two-thirds of Americans support the Black Lives Matter movement.

While Gatestone Institute and doubtless many others wish that blacks and all minorities benefit from the equal opportunities and protections offered by the U.S. Constitution, the high level of backing raises the question: How much does the public really know about BLM?BLM’s leaders openly admit that they want to abolish the nuclear family, police, prisons and capitalism.

Black Lives Matter uses Thousand Currents, which is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) organization, as its fiscal sponsor. Donations made on the Black Lives Matter website are processed by the left-wing ActBlue Charities, a donation platform affiliated with the Democratic Party, and then transferred to Thousand Currents, which then distributes them back to Black Lives Matter.

“If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right?… I just want black liberation, and black sovereignty. By any means necessary.” — Hawk Newsome, leader of BLM’s Greater New York chapter, New York Post, June 25, 2020.

BLM is also obsessed with U.S. President Donald J. Trump, who, arguably, has done more for African Americans than any other president in recent memory.

“In reality, this has nothing to do with black lives and everything to do with liberal Marxist anarchists having hijacked, as they always do, an important social issue with which they will undermine the very communities and people they claim to represent.” — Tammy Bruce, US commentator, The Washington Times, June 14, 2020.

Multinational companies, philanthropic foundations and private citizens have been donating tens of millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter (BLM), and a recent survey by the Pew Research Center has found that more than two-thirds of Americans support the BLM movement.While Gatestone Institute and doubtless many others wish that blacks and all minorities benefit from the equal opportunities and protections offered by the U.S. Constitution, the high level of backing for BLM raises the question: How much does the public really know about BLM?

Part I of this series revealed the anti-American agenda of Black Lives Matter, which, under the guise of fighting racism, seeks to transform the United States into a communist dystopia. BLM’s leaders openly admit that they want to abolish the nuclear family, police, prisons and capitalism.

BLM leaders have threatened to “burn down the system” if their demands are not met, and are also training black militias.

Part II of this series examines:

As documented below, BLM has lifted much of its agenda from radical leftist groups active in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s. BLM is an ideological descendant of the Black Power Movement, the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground, all of which sought to overthrow the U.S. political system.

BLM’s innovation is two-fold: 

1) it has successfully employed intersectionality and identity politics to stir up a broad range of grievances that extend far beyond race — including class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, immigration status and other identity markers — thus assuring that BLM offers something for just about anyone claiming victim status;
2) it has successfully leveraged social media to agitate mob hysteria and funnel societal rage into a political movement with a large online reach.

BLM’s ideological influences and sources of funding. 
 
BLM is at the core of a vast network of Marxist groups whose demands often coincide with those of Antifa anarchists, many of whom have been piggybacking on BLM protests to stir chaos and destruction. Left-of-center foundations including the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Ford Foundation, as well as intermediaries including Thousand Currents, Borealis Philanthropy and the Alliance for Global Justice and have provided tens of millions of dollars to BLM and the Movement for Black Lives, an umbrella group that coordinates BLM activism.

BLM is a revolutionary anti-capitalist movement masquerading as a civil rights movement. Its focus on racial issues is a smokescreen for a much larger effort to completely dismantle the American economic, political and social systems and rebuild them from scratch — according to Marxist principles.

BLM In Its Own Words

“The ONLY thing that will fix this is a REVOLUTION. Elections aren’t revolutions.” — Tania Faison, co-founder BLM Sacramento, March 5, 2020

“Ain’t no kneeling ass pig gonna stop the revolution!” — BLM Sacramento, June 1, 2020

“Stop getting sad and get angry. We need to fight.” — BLM Sacramento, May 7, 2020

“Revolutions don’t happen just once in a lifetime; may there be countless revolutions in our time towards Black liberation.” — BLM Toronto, March 24, 2019

“DEFUND. DISARM. DISMANTLE. ABOLISH. #DefundThePolice #BlackLivesMatter”. — BLM Toronto, June 19, 2020

“Get off our land white man!” — BLM Memphis, July 4, 2020

“CANCEL RENT IN #DC!” — BLM Washington, D.C., June 24, 2020

“Queer black people are working to get the larger black movement closer to an ideology that is intersectional.” — Patrisse Cullors, BLM co-founder, March 8, 2018

“We’re fighting against white supremacist patriarchal society. That’s why you need black women to fight it.” — Shamell Bell, BLM activist, November 9, 2015

“We absolutely have to deal with the way in which capitalism exploits us, and the way in which capitalism exploits Black people in particular.” — Melina Abdullah, co-founder BLM Los Angeles, June 23, 2020

“Capital can and should be used to fund the independence from capitalism and transition into community. But Capital and capitalism shouldn’t be the goal to fix community…. Black dollar is great… but let’s only look at money as a tool to attain liberation through COMMUNITY and not capitalism.” — Tania Faison, co-founder BLM Sacramento, January 31, 2020

“If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? …. I just want black liberation, and black sovereignty. By any means necessary.” — Hank Newsome, BLM activist, June 25, 2020

“This is an uprising. A rebellion. A revolt.” — Melina Abdullah, co-founder BLM Los Angeles, May 31, 2020

“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…. 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’s manifesto

“We are anti-capitalist: We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system.” — Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), a BLM umbrella group

BLM’s Radical Ideological Influences

The founders of Black Lives Matter openly admit that they have been heavily influenced by revolutionary groups of the 1960s and 1970s. These groups include the Black Power Movement, the Black Panthers, the Black Liberation Army and the Weather Underground, as well as the Marxist radicals associated with those groups, all of which advocated the violent overthrow the U.S. political and economic system. “We were and are their progeny,” BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors wrote in her autobiography.

The Black Power Movement, active in the 1960s and 1970s, repudiated the non-violent methods of the mainstream civil rights movement, which advocated black integration into a white-dominated society. The Black Power Movement, which embraced militant black separatism, spawned the creation of groups such as the Nation of Islam and the Black Panther Party.

The Black Panther Party was a revolutionary political organization established in 1966 by Marxist college students in Oakland, California. The group, which “openly displayed weapons,” supported the use of violence and guerrilla tactics to implement a ten-point program of socialist revolution. A 2016 documentary — “The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution” — juxtaposed the Black Panther Party with BLM. The documentary showed that many of the demands of the Black Lives Matters movement, including abolishing the police and prisons, originated with the Black Panther movement.

The Black Liberation Army was an urban guerrilla group established in 1970 by disaffected members of the Black Panthers. The Black Liberation Army, whose stated goal was to “weaken the enemy capitalist state,” had a highly decentralized organizational structure similar to the one used by today’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa movements.

The Weather Underground, a left-wing terrorist group responsible for bombings and riots during the 1970s, sought to achieve “the destruction of U.S. imperialism and form a classless communist world.” The group’s 1974 manifesto, “Prairie Fire,” stated: “We are a guerrilla organization. We are communist women and men, underground in the United States…. Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks.” Former Weather Underground terrorists have not only mentored BLM leaders, but have been involved in BLM’s creation and continued administrative and financial support.

BLM’s Radical Leaders and Mentors

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors was trained to be a Marxist activist by the Labor/Community Strategy Center (LCSC), a Los Angeles-based grassroots training organization founded by former Weather Underground member Eric Mann, a communist revolutionary who has been called the “grandfather of Black Lives Matter.”

Mann and other white revolutionaries, apparently inspired by the late Marxist theorist Herbert Marcuse, have stated that they believe that black revolutionaries should lead the fight against capitalism. Marcuse, in his seminal essay “On Liberation,” wrote that “in the United States, the black population appears as the ‘most natural’ force of rebellion.” He elaborated:

“The ghetto population of the United States constitutes such a force. Confined to small areas of living and dying, it can be more easily organized and directed. Moreover, located in the core cities of the country, the ghettos form natural geographical centers from which the struggle can be mounted against targets of vital economic and political importance.”

Mann, in his 1974 book about George Jackson, a black revolutionary who co-founded the Marxist–Leninist Black Guerrilla Family, argued that the socialist revolution in America should begin in the inner cities and that African Americans should take the lead in tearing down the existing system. Investigative journalist Lee Stranahan noted: “It would take almost 40 years for radical activist Mann to see his vision spring to life as the Black Lives Matter movement, created by his disciple Black Lives Matter co-founder, Patrisse Cullors.”

In his 2011 book “Playbook for Progressives,” Mann disclosed that he “recruited” Cullors. In a January 2018 interview with Democracy Now, Cullors said that LCSC was her “first political home” and that Mann is “my mentor.” In November 2018, Cullors revealed that she joined LCSC when she was 17 years old and that Mann subsequently trained her in revolutionary organizing for more than a decade.

LCSC states that it builds “consciousness, leadership, and organization among those who face discrimination and societal attack — people of color, women, immigrants, workers, LGBT people, youth….” In 2018, LCSC elaborated that it was focused on organizing “Black and Latino communities with deep historical ties to the long history of anti-colonial anti-imperialist pro-communist resistance to the U.S. empire.” It added:

“We teach and study history of the Indigenous rebellions against the initial European genocidal invasions…. We appreciate the work of the U.S. Communist Party especially Black communists…. We applaud the great work of the Black Panther Party…. We also have roots in the new communist movement of the 1970s and 1980s.”

Cullors and other BLM co-founders — including Alicia Garza, who has accused the U.S. government of perpetrating “genocide” against African Americans — have repeatedly hailed the fugitive domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, as one of their main inspirations.

Shakur, a former member of the Black Liberation Army, is the first woman to have been named a “Most Wanted Terrorist” by the FBI. She is wanted for escaping from prison in New Jersey in 1979 while serving a life sentence for murdering a police officer execution-style at point-blank range. Shakur fled to Cuba in 1984.

One of the persons indicted for helping Shakur escape from prison was Susan Rosenberg, a member of the revolutionary militant group known as the May 19th Communist Organization. M19’s members were overwhelmingly lesbian and, like the co-founders of BLM, opposed heteronormativity. They were said to share “a disdain for their own whiteness.” M19, described America’s “first and only women-created and women-led terrorist group,” was an offshoot of the Weather Underground.

“M19’s two-year bombing campaign in New York City and Washington, DC, aimed to cast a cloud over what President Ronald Reagan’s re-election campaign was promising: a sunny, prosperous “Morning in America,” according to author Mary Kay Linge. “Reagan’s election in 1980 told the remnants of America’s radical left that the country had rejected their call to revolution.”

Rosenberg served only 16 years of a 58-year prison sentence for her involvement in a number of terrorist bombings and murders, including of two police officers, before being pardoned by U.S. President Bill Clinton in January 2001. Her release from prison provoked intense anger from police, including New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who said: “It sickened me.”

Rosenberg is now a member of the board of directors of the left-wing charity Thousand Currents, which manages the donations made to Black Lives Matter.

BLM’s Financial Ties

Black Lives Matter operates under an umbrella group called Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, which is not a 501(c)(3) charitable group as far as the Internal Revenue Service is concerned. Black Lives Matter uses Thousand Currents, which is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) organization, as its fiscal sponsor. Donations made on the Black Lives Matter website are processed by the left-wing ActBlue Charities, a donation platform affiliated with the Democratic Party, and then transferred to Thousand Currents, which then distributes them back to Black Lives Matter.

On June 18, Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation told the Associated Press that since the death of George Floyd on May 25, it had received more than 1.1 million individual donations, with each donation averaging $33. In other words, Black Lives Matter raised more than $33 million in less than a month.

BLM’s relationship with Thousand Currents dates back to at least June 2016, when the W.K. Kellogg Foundation provided Thousand Currents with a $900,000 grant for “building the infrastructure and capacity of the national #BlackLivesMatter to support and strengthen their local chapters’ organizing capacity.”

In July 2016, the Ford Foundation and Borealis Philanthropy pledged to raise up to $100 million for the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), an umbrella group that coordinates BLM activism among dozens of racial-advocacy organizations.

Funding for M4BL, which supports “young, Black, queer, trans, feminist, immigrant, and undocumented leaders,” is funneled through the Black-Led Movement Fund (BLMF), which transfers money to more than two dozen organizations, including BLM and M4BL, as well as groups including Assata’s Daughters, LGBTQ Black Immigrant Justice Project, Million Hoodies Movement for Justice and The Undocumented and Black Convening.

M4BL’s “fiscal sponsor” is the Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ), an “anti-capitalist” organizing group that also provides financial support to the American Antifa movement.

AFGJ has received substantial funding from organizations often claiming to be the mainstream of the center-left. The Open Society Foundations, Tides Foundation, Arca Foundation, Surdna Foundation, Public Welfare Foundation, the Ben & Jerry Foundation and the Brightwater Fund have all made contributions to AFGJ, according to Influence Watch.

AFGJ, which states that it is opposed to the principles of liberal democracy, also funds “Refuse Fascism,” a radical left-wing organization devoted to promoting nationwide action to remove President Donald Trump from office, on the grounds that his government constitutes a “fascist regime.”

In June 2020, “Refuse Fascism” — an offshoot of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP) — took advantage of the death of George Floyd to raise money for a “National Revolution Tour” evidently aimed at subverting the U.S. government. The group’s slogan states: “This System Cannot Be Reformed, It Must Be Overthrown!”

BLM: Training Militias

The leader of BLM’s Greater New York chapter, Hawk Newsome, recently warned:

“If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation. I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary.”

Newsome subsequently disclosed that BLM was “mobilizing” its base to develop a highly-trained militia modelled on the Black Panthers. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Newsome said:

“It’s our obligation, it is our duty to provide people with a pathway forward. We want liberation. We want the power to determine our own destiny. We want freedom from an oppressive government, and we want the immediate end of government sanctioned murder by the police.

“And we prepare to stop these government sanctioned murders by any means necessary. We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.

“We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Ops department of Black Opportunities….

“We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an arm to defend ourselves. We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.

“I don’t see us working with police. I see us policing ourselves. I see us teaching black people how to police their own communities. We’ll bring in kids and teach them and train them the way that the Black Panthers used to do.”

BLM’s Communist Idols

While Black Lives Matter claims to oppose police abuse, BLM co-founders Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi have praised Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, whose government, according to Human Rights Watch (HRW), is known for its “brutality, torture and political persecution.” The Maduro government has used “extreme and at times lethal force” against anti-government protesters, causing dozens of deaths and hundreds of injuries, according to HRW.

April 2013. Cullors was a keynote speaker at a rally in New York City called “An Urgent Call to Defend Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.”

December 2015. Tometi met with Maduro in Caracas, the Venezuelan capital. She wore a jacket with the logo of the National Electoral Council of Venezuela, which has been accused of rigging elections in favor of the dictatorship. She tweeted: “Currently in Venezuela. It is a great relief to be in a place where there is intelligent political discourse.”

December 2015. Writing for Venezuelanalysis.com, Tometi declared: “In these last 17 years, we have witnessed the Bolivarian Revolution [of Venezuela] champion participatory democracy and construct a fair, transparent election system recognized as among the best in the world.”

November 2016. Two days after the death of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro, BLM Global Network eulogized “El Comandante,” who was responsible for the murder of up to 100,000 men, women and children:

“We are feeling many things as we awaken to a world without Fidel Castro. There is an overwhelming sense of loss, complicated by fear and anxiety…. As Fidel ascends to the realm of the ancestors, we summon his guidance, strength, and power as we recommit ourselves to the struggle for universal freedom. Fidel Vive!”

The Alliance for Global Justice (AFGJ), the anti-capitalist group that funds BLM’s Movement for Black Lives, has repeatedly advocated for the authoritarian communist governments of Cuba, Nicaragua, North Korea and Venezuela.

BLM Promoting Racist Black Supremacy

The Marxist co-founder of BLM Toronto, Yusra Khogali, is open about her hatred of white people, whom she has described as subhuman. On Facebook she posted:

“whiteness is not humxness. infact, white skin is sub-humxn…. white people are a genetic defect of blackness…. white ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual…. Melanin directly communicates with cosmic energy. this is why the indegeniety [sic] of all humxnity comes from blackness. we are the first and strongest of all humxns and our genetics are the foundation of all humxnity…. white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to. it is why white supremacy as an imperial system thrives. it tries to control, suppress, and destroy our existence in blackness because we are a threat to the genetic annihilation of white ppl.”

Khogali, a Sudanese refugee accepted by Canada, also tweeted about her urge to kill white people:

“Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today. Plz plz plz.”

The co-founder of BLM Los Angeles, Melina Abdullah — whose father reportedly was a self-proclaimed Trotskyist and whose paternal grandfather was Günter Reimann, a famous German-Jewish Marxist economist from Berlin who fled the Nazis in 1934 and ended up in New York — has also called for violence against white people:

“We’ve been very deliberate in saying that the violence and pain and hurt that’s experienced on a daily basis by black folks at the hands of a repressive system should also be visited upon, to a degree, to those who think that they can just retreat to white affluence.”

Abdullah, who keeps her ex-husband’s surname, regularly lashes out at Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and other white officials whom she accuses of implementing anti-black policies “under the guise of liberalism.” She tweeted:

“As we talk about a white supremacist terrorist like Donald Trump remember that we live in a city that is largely liberal white supremacists. So, when you say ‘Fuck Donald Trump, make sure you say Fuck Eric Garcetti.'”

Abdullah has described blacks who cooperate with whites — including Condoleezza Rice, the first black woman to serve as Secretary of State, and Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey — as “a Black face on white supremacy.”

Abdullah’s daughter, the co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Youth Vanguard, Thandiwe Abdullah, has likewise called for violence against white people:

“If you want to set some corporations on fire, you know what? I don’t care about Target burning. I don’t care that capitalism burns. I don’t care that white people in their f***ing office buildings are upset. I don’t care that you can’t go nowhere because you’re stuck in f***ing traffic. I don’t care that you can’t get to your job or your doctor’s appointment or to wherever the f*** you want to go.”

A BLM-affiliated group called Community Ready Corps states that “all white wealth is stolen wealth” and that white people “should make reparations.”

White people have been expressly forbidden from participating in certain BLM activities. BLM Philadelphia wrote: “Please note that BLM Philly is a Black only space.” After a white supporter complained, BLM Philadelphia doubled-down: “Our meetings are black centered.”

BLM co-founder Opal Tometi, the daughter of illegal immigrants from Nigeria, has admitted that BLM was never primarily a reaction to police violence against African Americans. Rather, BLM “was always conceived of as a strategic response to white supremacy.”

BLM is a Pagan “Spiritual” Movement

BLM leaders say that their organization is first and foremost a “spiritual movement” — one that is opposed to the Judeo-Christian tradition. BLM co-founders, Patrisse Cullors and Melina Abdullah are practitioners of paganism, witchcraft and ancestor worship.

June 24, 2015. In an interview with Religion Dispatches, Cullors said that after consulting her great-grandmother, who was from the Choctaw and Blackfoot American Indian tribes, and her great-grandfather, a medicine man, she developed an interest in Ifa, a West African pagan divination system. She claimed that she was “pushed out” of the Christian church because she is “queer” and the church is “patriarchal.”

November 28, 2018. In an interview with The Politic, Cullors disclosed that while she was working at the Los Angeles-based Labor/Community Strategy Center, she built “ancestor altars” in her office.

June 2, 2020. The Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter held a pagan ritual in front of the home of Mayor Eric Garcetti and “invoked the spirits” of the victims of police brutality.

June 13, 2020. Cullors conducted a “religious” ceremony in which she tried to “resurrect” the sprits of dead people while shredding sheets of paper with the words “police” and “white racism.”

June 15, 2020. Cullors claimed that she needs “spiritual protection” because Black Lives Matter is being “targeted by the right, by police and by neo-Nazis.”

June 22, 2020. BLM leader Shaun King encouraged protesters to tear down statues of Jesus:

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.”

July 12, 2020. BLM activists are suspected of setting fire to San Gabriel Mission, a 250-year-old Catholic church in California. The mission was founded in 1771 by Father Junipero Serra, a Spanish missionary who brought Roman Catholicism to California, and whose statutes have recently been toppled by activists and protesters in cities across the state.

BLM is Anti-Israel and Anti-Semitic

BLM and its umbrella group, Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) have falsely accused Israel of perpetrating “genocide” against Palestinians. They have also falsely called Israel an “apartheid state.” BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors has referred to “Palestine as the new South Africa.” BLM supports the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which aims to isolate Israel “economically, culturally and politically.”

BLM has used intersectionality to recast the Palestinian-Israeli conflict as a racial issue rather than a dispute over territory — even though Arabs comprise 20% of the population of Israel, where they enjoy equal rights with Jews.

January 2015. BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors visited the Palestinian territories in the West Bank. Her stated objective was to draw a parallel between police violence against blacks in the United States and what is wrongly called Israeli oppression of the Palestinians in the Middle East.

August 2015. Cullors signed an anti-Israel statement, again falsely accusing the Jewish state of “colonialism,” “apartheid,” and “ethnic cleansing.” The statement exhorted blacks to support the BDS movement to try to crush Israel economically.

May 2020. Participants in BLM protests in Los Angeles, California, vandalized at least five synagogues and three Jewish schools with anti-Semitic graffiti. They also ransacked and looted Jewish businesses in downtown Los Angeles and the heavily Orthodox Fairfax district.

BLM’s Obsession with President Trump

BLM’s obsession with U.S. President Donald J. Trump — who, arguably, has done more for African Americans than any other president in recent memory — is strikingly similar to the opposition to U.S. President Ronald Reagan by the domestic terrorist and BLM advisor Susan Rosenberg.

In an August 2017 with the Los Angeles Times, BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors said that BLM would never talk with U.S. President Donald J. Trump:

“We wouldn’t as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump because we wouldn’t have done that with Hitler. Trump is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country — be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia…. And if I’m thinking about what I want my children to know in 30, 40, 50 years, I want them to know that I resisted a president at all costs, because this president literally tried to kill our communities, and is killing our communities.”

Cullors recently confirmed that BLM’s immediate goal is to remove President Trump from office:

“Trump not only needs to not be in office in November, but he should resign now. Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office. And so, what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out. While we’re also going to continue to push and pressure Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization. That’s going to be important. But our goal is to get Trump out.”

“Here’s the bottom line,” concluded Mary Frances Berry, an academic and veteran civil rights activist. “This whole protest, writ large, is a protest against Trump.”

BLM’s Agenda: Commentary

BLM’s racism, by British author Alexander Pelling-Bruce:

“These cultural entrepreneurs’ livelihoods depend on the continuance of grievance, so they encourage division between groups while suppressing diversity within groups. Black Lives Matter organizers are cultural entrepreneurs par excellence. They are re-racializing society along the lines of white history vs black history….

“I’ve never understood how being defined by skin color can be emancipatory. Isn’t that what the racists want? The opposite of racism is being color blind. Blacks should uphold the idea of society as a shared common possession and support egalitarian measures that would actually improve the lot of impoverished people of all races.”

BLM’s selective outrage, by Guatemalan economist Carroll Ríos de Rodríguez:

“We would say that the value of a human life does not depend on skin color, socioeconomic status, occupation, sex, age or any other particular characteristic: in principle, all human life deserves our respect, period….

“If the Black Lives Matter movement really cared about the quality of black lives, it would defend their right to life by the mere fact of them being people, not the color of their skin…. It would proclaim that victimhood is a demeaning and unethical attitude, since it downplays individual responsibility and self-control.

“Our value as people does not derive from theories of identity, race or gender … these characteristics do not define or determine us. The Black Lives Matter movement should defend the right of all people, of any color, to individual liberty, including their right to outline their own opinions, instead of muzzling or banishing every African American who deviates one iota from the Marxist-progressive and liberal discourse.”

BLM’s cultural revolution to destroy and replace Western civilization, by former Australian politician Peter Baldwin:

“Could any sane, well-intentioned person think this is the way to protect and improve black lives? No, not unless there is a larger goal, which is to dismantle and transform the existing social order by perpetuating and exacerbating racial divisions to the point of societal breakdown, as avowed by some of the openly Marxist ideologues who founded BLM, such as Patrisse Cullors.”

Black Lives Matter as a “political protection racket,” by British author Ben Cobley:

“Black Lives Matter is a masterpiece of political marketing. It’s a slogan with a campaign attached, linked to some pretty heavy racial ideology and propaganda. None of it can be criticized without appearing to oppose the idea that black lives do indeed matter.

“BLM is a classic and effective piece of rhetorical blackmail. Either get on board or you’re a racist: that is the logic of it — a logic driven by fear.”

BLM as an old-fashioned power grab, by American commentator Tammy Bruce:

“In reality, this has nothing to do with black lives and everything to do with liberal Marxist anarchists having hijacked, as they always do, an important social issue with which they will undermine the very communities and people they claim to represent.”

Black Lives Matter: “We Are Trained Marxists” – Part I

by Soeren Kern

July 2, 2020 at 5:00 am

Black Lives Matter is a Marxist revolutionary movement aimed at transforming the United States into a communist dystopia. BLM states that it wants to abolish the nuclear family, police, prisons and capitalism. BLM leaders have threatened to “burn down the system” if their demands are not met. They are also training militias.

“Cutting the LAPD budget means longer responses to 911 emergency calls, officers calling for backup won’t get it, and rape, murder and assault investigations won’t occur or will take forever to initiate, let alone complete.” — Los Angeles Police Protective League, the city’s police union.

“White people are so confused in America…. If there is systematic racism today it is a racism against white people, in the sense that white people are told that they are responsible for all the evils in the world….” — Dr. Carol M. Swain, university professor and advisory board member of Black Voices for Trump.

“We are all human beings in God’s image. Black Lives Matter and Antifa and organizations like that will not help us transcend racism and classism and the ‘isms’ that they are concerned with. There are things that can be done in the black community, but the most important thing is helping people realize to how important their own attitudes are…” — Dr. Carol M. Swain.

A recent survey by the Pew Research Center found that more than two-thirds of Americans support the Black Lives Matter movement. The high level of backing raises the question of how much the public knows about BLM.On the surface, BLM presents itself as a grassroots movement dedicated to the noble tasks of fighting racism and police brutality. A deeper dive shows that BLM is a Marxist revolutionary movement aimed at transforming the United States — and the entire world — into a communist dystopia.

This is the first of a two-part series, which reveals:

BLM’s founders openly admit to being Marxist ideologues. Their self-confessed mentors include former members of the Weather Underground, a radical “leftwing” terrorist group that sought to bring a communist revolution to the United States in the 1960s and 1970s. BLM is friendly with Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro, whose socialist policies have brought economic collapse and untold misery to millions of people there.

BLM states that it wants to abolish: the nuclear family; police and prisons; heteronormativity; and capitalism. BLM and groups associated with it are demanding a moratorium on rent, mortgages and utilities, and reparations for a long list of grievances. BLM leaders have threatened to “burn down the system” if their demands are not met. They are also training militias based on the militant Black Panther movement of the 1960s.

BLM, which is not registered as a non-profit organization for tax purposes, has raised tens of millions of dollars in donations. BLM’s finances are opaque. BLM’s donations are collected by ActBlue, a fundraising platform linked to the Democratic Party and causes associated with it. Indeed, BLM leaders have confirmed that their immediate goal is to remove U.S. President Donald J. Trump from office.

Most importantly, the main premise of BLM is based on a lie — namely that the United States is “at war” with African Americans. Blacks are not being systematically targeted by whites. Fifty years after the signing of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, more than three in four Americans, including most whites and blacks, agreed that real progress has been made in getting rid of racial discrimination. Scholars have noted that BLM’s inability to produce solid empirical evidence of systemic racism explains why its leaders continue to “broaden and deepen” the indictment to include the entire American social and political order.

BLM in its Own Words

“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia [Garza] in particular, we’re trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories.” — BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, July 22, 2015.

“If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it. All right? And I could be speaking figuratively. I could be speaking literally. It’s a matter of interpretation…. I just want black liberation and black sovereignty, by any means necessary.” — BLM activist Hank Newsome, June 25, 2020.

“Stay in the streets! The system is throwing every diversionary and de-mobilizing tactic at us. We are fighting to end policing and prisons as a system which necessitates fighting white supremacist capitalist heteropatriarchal imperialism. Vet your comrades and stay focused.” — BLM Chicago, Twitter, June 16, 2020.

“There’s no such thing as ‘blue lives.’ There is no hue of a blue life. Being a police officer is an occupation. It’s a job. ‘All lives matter’— it’s like saying the sky is blue. I haven’t heard how police are on the right side of history.” — BLM co-founder Alicia Garza, ktvu.com, March 30, 2018.

“It’s hundreds of years of generational oppression and trauma and infrastructural racism that impacts our bodies and makes our bodies more vulnerable to something like a COVID-19.” — BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, Hollywood Reporter, June 2, 2020.

“We say #DefundThePolice and #DefundDepOfCorrections because they work in tandem. The rise of mass incarceration occurred alongside the rise of militarized and mass policing. They must be abolished as a system.” — BLM Chicago, June 13, 2020.

“We are anti-capitalist. We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system.” — Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), of which BLM is a part, June 5, 2020.

“‘All Lives Matter,’ is little more than a racist dog whistle that attempts to both delegitimize centuries of claims of global anti-Black oppression and position those who exhibit tremendous pride in their Blackness as enemies of the state. Well, we are enemies of any racist, sexist, classist, xenophobic state that sanctions brutality and murder against marginalized people who deserve to live as free people.” — Feminista Jones, BLM activist.

“We stand with Palestinian civil society in calling for targeted sanctions in line with international law against Israel’s colonial, apartheid regime.” — BLM UK, June 28, 2020.

“We are an ABOLITIONIST movement. We do not believe in reforming the police, the state or the prison industrial complex.” — BLM UK, June 21, 2020.

“Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down. They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been. In the Bible, when the family of Jesus wanted to hide, and blend in, guess where they went? EGYPT! Not Denmark. Tear them down.” — BLM leader Shaun King, June 22, 2020.

“We are living in political moment where for the first time in a long time we are talking about alternatives to capitalism.” — Alicia Garza, BLM co-founder, March 2015.

“Anti-racism is anti-capitalist, and vice versa. There are no two ways around it. To be an anti-racist must demand a complete rejection of business as usual. An end to racism demands transformation of the global political-economic setup.” — Joshua Virasami, BLM UK, June 8, 2020.

Brief History

Black Lives Matter began in July 2013, when George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood watch coordinator of Hispanic-German descent, was acquitted of homicide charges in the 2012 fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old black high school student, in Sanford, Florida.

Alicia Garza, a black woman from Oakland, California, posted to Facebook what she described as a “love letter to black folks.” She wrote: “I continue to be surprised at how little black lives matter. Black people. I love you. I love us. Our lives matter.” Patrisse Cullors, a black woman from Los Angeles, California, then put Garza’s Facebook post on Twitter, with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter. After seeing the hashtag, Opal Tometi, a first-generation Nigerian American woman from Phoenix, Arizona, partnered with Garza and Cullors to establish an internet presence. Tometi purchased the domain name and built BLM’s digital platform, including social media accounts, where they encouraged people to tell their stories.

The hashtag #BlackLivesMatter gained national attention in August 2014, after the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. The hashtag was ubiquitous during riots in November 2014, when a grand jury decided not to indict Wilson. By 2018, the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter had been tweeted over 30 million times.

Since its beginnings seven years ago, Black Lives Matter has grown into a movement with nearly 40 chapters and thousands of activists in the United States, Canada and Great Britain. What began as an effort to seek justice for black people has become far more expansive — and more radical — in its demands.

What’s the Agenda?

BLM’s worldview is based on a mix of far-left theoretical frameworks, including critical race theory and intersectional theory. Critical race theory posits that racism is systemic, based on a system of white supremacy and therefore a permanent feature of American life. Intersectional theory asserts that people are often disadvantaged by multiple sources of oppression: their race, class, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, and other identity markers.

Black Lives Matter and other purveyors of critical race theory and intersectional theory reject individual accountability for behavior, criminal or otherwise, because, according to them, blacks are systemic and permanent victims of racism. Such racism, according to BLM, can only be defeated by completely dismantling the American economic, political and social system and rebuilding it from scratch — according to Marxist principles.

Black Lives Matter seeks to replace the foundational cornerstones of American society: 1) abolish the Judeo-Christian concept of the traditional nuclear family, the basic social unit in America; 2) abolish the police and dismantle the prison system; 3) mainstream transgenderism and delegitimize so-called heteronormativity (the belief that heterosexuality is the norm); and 4) abolish capitalism (a free economy) and replace it with communism (a government-controlled economy).

Abolish the Traditional Nuclear Family

In its policy agenda, Black Lives Matter states that it is committed to abolishing the traditional nuclear family:

“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.”

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels rejected the traditional family because, according to them, the nuclear family, as an economic unit, sustains the capitalist system. Engels wrote: “The care and education of the children becomes a public affair; society looks after all children alike, whether they are legitimate or not.”

Many experts have noted that African Americans need stronger, not weaker, families. In March 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, then an Assistant Secretary of Labor under U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson, wrote a groundbreaking report, which focused on the roots of black poverty in the United States. The report linked the many problems plaguing African Americans — crime, joblessness, school failure, out-of-wedlock births — to the breakdown of the traditional nuclear family.

When the Moynihan Report was written in 1965, 25% of black children in the United States were born out of wedlock. Fifty years later, in 2015, more than 75% of black children were born out of wedlock, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Twenty years after the Moynihan Report, Glenn Loury, the first black economist to earn tenure at Harvard University, lauded Moynihan as a prophet:

“The bottom stratum of the black community has compelling problems which can no longer be blamed solely on white racism, and which force us to confront fundamental failures in black society. The societal disorganization among poor blacks, the lagging academic performance of black students, the disturbingly high rate of black-on-black crime, and the alarming increase in early unwed pregnancies among blacks now loom as the primary obstacles to black progress.”

Thomas Sowell, an African American economist and social theorist opined that the Moynihan Report of 1965 “may have been the last honest government report on race.” By contrast, African American civil rights activists criticized Moynihan for “blaming the victim.”

Abolish Police and Prisons

BLM states that it wants to “defund” and ultimately “abolish” police and prisons in the United States. Police officers would be replaced by educators, social workers, mental health experts and religious leaders, who, according to BLM, would bring down the levels of crime.

In an interview with Newsweek, BLM co-founder Cullors said:

“The freedom of mostly white affluent people is predicated on the unfreedom of black people. So, law enforcement is not actually used to keep black people safe. They’re used to patrol, occupy, harass, abuse, often hunt and mostly, what we’ve seen is kill our communities.

“Policing and incarceration are part of a continuum. The policing is the first response and then incarceration is the last response. And these two systems rely on each other very, very deeply. We have to be working on getting rid of both systems.”

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Cullors explained that she is not merely an activist but a modern-day abolitionist:

“An abolitionist believes in a world where police and prisons are no longer weaponized as a tool for public safety.”

BLM co-founder Opal Tometi, in an interview with The New Yorker, claimed that policing in America has its roots in managing slavery and therefore is systemically racist. She explained:

“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. And people understand that this system is filled with all sorts of inequality and injustice, and that implicit bias and just outright racism is embedded in the way that policing is done in this nation — and when you think about it historically, it was founded as a slave patrol. The evolution of policing was rooted in that….”

Washington, D.C. Police Chief Peter Newsham has warned that underfunding police departments could cause an increase in excess force by police officers:

“The number one thing that contributes to excessive force in any police agency is when you underfund it. If you underfund a police agency, it impacts training, it impacts hiring, it impacts your ability to develop good leaders.”

The Los Angeles Police Protective League, the city’s police union, said that budget cuts would be “extremely irresponsible”:

“Cutting the LAPD budget means longer responses to 911 emergency calls, officers calling for backup won’t get it, and rape, murder and assault investigations won’t occur or will take forever to initiate, let alone complete.”

Polls show that most Americans — including most blacks — do not share BLM’s views on abolishing the police. A recent Rasmussen’s report found that 63% of American adults “regard being a police officer as one of the most important jobs in our country today.” Furthermore, 64% are concerned that the current anti-police sentiment will lead to fewer people willing to become police officers, and that it will “reduce public safety in the community where they live.” Importantly, according to the Rasmussen report, “Blacks (67%) are the most concerned about public safety where they live, compared to 63% of whites and 65% of other minority Americans.”

Abolish Heteronormativity

BLM’s policy agenda states:

“We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender [a term for people whose gender identity matches their sex assigned at birth] privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence….

An academic study titled, “The ‘Queering’ of Black Lives Matter,” describes in great detail how issues of sexual identity and gender orientation have taken priority over BLM’s original focus on police brutality. The heavy focus on sexuality has led to accusations that BLM is “a gay movement masquerading as a black one.”

Two of the three founders of BLM describe themselves as “black queer females.” One, Alicia Garza, is married to a biracial transgender male. Patrice Cullors describes herself as “polyamorous.” In interview after interview, Garza and Cullors raise the issue of “black trans and gender nonconforming people,” often to the exclusion of police brutality.

In an interview with The New Yorker, Garza said that she is not interested in the American tradition of live and let live: “We want to make sure that people are not saying, ‘Well, whatever you are, I don’t care.’ No, I want you to care. I want you to see all of me.”

Abolish Capitalism and the “Patriarchal” System

BLM equates capitalism with racism in the same way that its Antifa cousins equate capitalism with fascism. BLM’s views on capitalism are based on the concept of “racial capitalism,” a term created by the late Cedric Robinson, who posited that capitalism and racism are two sides of the same coin: both are, according to Robinson, dependent on slavery, violence, imperialism, and genocide.

The British wing of Black Lives Matter UK states: “We’re guided by a commitment to dismantle imperialism, capitalism, white-supremacy, patriarchy and the state structures that disproportionately harm black people in Britain and around the world.”

The Movement for Black Lives (M4BL), an “ecosystem” of over 170 Black-led organizations, including BLM, states:

“We are anti-capitalist: We believe and understand that Black people will never achieve liberation under the current global racialized capitalist system.”

M4BL demands “a reconstruction of the economy to ensure Black communities have collective ownership” and “a progressive restructuring of tax codes at the local, state, and federal levels to ensure a radical and sustainable redistribution of wealth.”

M4BL also demands reparations for past and continuing harms:

“The government, responsible corporations and other institutions that have profited off of the harm they have inflicted on Black people — from colonialism to slavery through food and housing redlining, mass incarceration, and surveillance — must repair the harm done. This includes:

“Full and free access for all Black people (including undocumented and currently and formerly incarcerated people) to lifetime education; a guaranteed minimum livable income for all Black people; reparations for the wealth extracted from our communities through environmental racism, slavery, food apartheid, housing discrimination and racialized capitalism.”

The demands of BLM and M4BL are similar to those found in the Communist Manifesto, which include:

“Abolition of property in land and application of all rents of land to public purposes; A heavy progressive or graduated income tax; Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the State; the bringing into cultivation of waste-lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.”

BLM’s Immediate Demand

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors recently confirmed that the immediate goal is to remove U.S. President Donald J. Trump from office:

“Trump not only needs to not be in office in November, but he should resign now. Trump needs to be out of office. He is not fit for office. And so, what we are going to push for is a move to get Trump out. While we’re also going to continue to push and pressure Joe Biden around his policies and relationship to policing and criminalization. That’s going to be important. But our goal is to get Trump out.”

Evaluations of BLM’s Agenda

In an interview with Chanel Rion of One America News Network, Dr. Carol M. Swain, a university professor, public intellectual, and advisory board member of Black Voices for Trump, said:

“It’s very clear to me that the Black Lives Matter organization is about something much bigger than black people, that it really is pushing a socialist, Marxist agenda.

“White people are so confused in America. I hate to say it like that but I don’t know any other way to say it: They want to signal to black people that they care and the only way they feel like they can do that is to agree with the slogan, which is a true statement, that black lives matter in the same way that all lives matter. White lives matter, brown lives matter, but they can’t separate the slogan, which is a true statement, from an organization that has a goal that I believe is ultimately destructive to America.

“There is something very wrong when they argue that racism is permanent. If it’s permanent, then there is nothing you can do about it. That white skin is property that means that people who just happen to have been born white they have property that gives them advantages over blacks.

“If there is systematic racism today it is a racism against white people, in the sense that white people are told that they are responsible for all the evils in the world, that racism is permanent, and the only way they can redeem themselves is by divesting themselves of their whiteness. It involves a shaming of young white people, if you have white skin you’re supposed to have all these white privileges. I contend that there is black privilege, brown privilege, that it’s really about social class. The sooner we get away from defining everything, even the police brutality, as racism, the sooner we can bring everyone together as Americans.

“We are all human beings in God’s image. Black Lives Matter and Antifa and organizations like that will not help us transcend racism and classism and the isms that they are concerned with. There are things that can be done in the black community, but the most important thing is helping people realize to how important their own attitudes are. I would argue that a person’s attitudes are more important than race, gender, social class in determining whether or not they are going to be successful.”

Columnist Josh Hammer wrote that the American system of governance and way of life is under existential threat by groups such as BLM and Antifa:

“The modern left, in thrall to the anarchists of Antifa and the Marxists of Black Lives Matter, has positioned itself as a political movement that stands athwart the American regime. At an institutional level, Democratic Party leadership is increasingly a dog wagged by the tail that is Antifa and Black Lives Matter. And that tail, as is openly conceded in moments of candor, is resolutely opposed to the idea of America itself. There is no alternative way to comprehend the ardent desire of those insurrectionists who, channeling the very worst of Mao’s Cultural Revolution, would deface and demolish societal tributes to the man who wrote the Declaration of Independence (Jefferson) and the man who brought to fruition its ideals (Lincoln). Could we ask for a more clarion demonstration of the dripping disdain with which the left views the entire American project?

“We are now in the midst of a cold civil war between Americanists, proud defenders and preservers of the American regime and way of life, and the civilizational arsonists who seek to burn that regime and way of life into the ether. Yes, we are in a fight for America’s soul — but we are also in a fight for America itself.”

Part II of this series will examine BLM’s ideological influences, its activities and its sources of funding.

Eerie Parallels: Communist Take Over Of South Africa V.S. Attempted Communist Take Over Of U.S.

Eerie Parallels: Revolution in South Africa vs US

Written by TNA Video
Thursday, 20 August 2020Source: TheNewAmerican.com

In this interview with The New American magazine’s Alex Newman, South African engineer, historian and author Dr. Harry Booyens explains the many eerie parallels between the communist takeover of South Africa and the ongoing effort to bring down America. The historical parallels between the Afrikaner/Boer nation and Americans go back centuries, as documented in Booyens’ book AmaBhulu: The Birth and Death of the Second America. Booyens predicted the assault on statues in America many years ago, because he knew what had happened in his native South Africa. Today, Christian descendants of Europeans in South Africa are a small, endangered minority in the nation that their forefathers built. Americans will be next if this continues.

Democrat Party Embraces Communism At DNC Convention By Removing God From The Pledge Of Allegiance.

TRUMP: DEMOCRATS REMOVED ‘GOD’ FROM PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE ‘ON PURPOSE’ DURING DNC

“Remember Evangelical Christians, and ALL, this is where they are coming from — it’s done,’ says president

Source: Infowars.com – AUGUST 22, 2020

President Trump tore into Democrats on Saturday for removing “Under God” from the Pledge of Allegiance during the Democratic National Convention (DNC) this week.

“The Democrats took the word GOD out of the Pledge of Allegiance at the Democrat National Convention. At first I thought they made a mistake, but it wasn’t. It was done on purpose,” Trump tweeted.

“Remember Evangelical Christians, and ALL, this is where they are coming from-it’s done. Vote Nov 3!”

Trump was referring to the moderator leading the Muslim Delegates Assembly meeting on the second day of the DNC skipping “under God” as he recited the Pledge of Allegiance before the virtual meeting.
Notably, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-M.D) on Capitol Hill earlier this week also conspicuously left out “under God” while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

Here is another example of the Democrats removing the word God from the Pledge of Allegiance below.

CONFIRMED: CoVid-19 coronavirus found to contain unique “gain-of-function” property “for efficient spreading in the human population” … exact quote from science paper just published in Antiviral Research.

 

Source: BiologicalWeapons.news

02/19/2020 / By Mike Adams

We now have bombshell, smoking gun evidence that the CoVid-19 “Wuhan” coronavirus was specifically engineered as an offensive biological warfare weapon, designed to target to exterminate human beings.

A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Antiviral Research (Vol. 16, April 2020) is entitled, “The spike glycoprotein of the new coronavirus 2019-nCoV contains a furin-like cleavage site absent in CoV of the same clade.”

It reveals that the CoVid-19 coronavirus contains unique features that allow it to function as a more efficient weapon system for human-to-human transmission, which helps explain why the virus has been impossible to contain (even under “quarantine” conditions, which have universally failed in China, Japan, Korea and elsewhere).

As the science authors of the paper explain in the full text, “This furin-like cleavage site… may provide a gain-of-function to the 2019-nCoV for efficient spreading in the human population.” (Emphasis added)

Further, the science paper finds that there is no known viral ancestry to the CoVid-19 coronavirus, meaning it did not evolve from nature. It was engineered, and the science paper authors also state that the virus contains elements from MERS, stating, “Before the emergence of the 2019-nCoV, this important feature was not observed in the lineage b of betacoronaviruses.”

The abstract and full PDF (paid) of the study are available through this link at ScienceDirect.com:

 

The “smoking gun” aspects of this research were brought to light earlier today by Prof. Frances Boyle who appeared on the Alex Jones Show (2nd broadcast hour, Feb. 19th, 2020, InfoWars.com) to reveal his findings that confirm the Wuhan coronavirus was an engineered biological weapon.

The following graphic from the published study shows some of the S-protein sequences found in the CoVid-19 “Wuhan” coronavirus which share a nearly identical pattern with MERS-CoV, but not with any previous ancestry of “lineage b” type coronavirus:

 

The new feature engineered into the Wuhan coronavirus has, “the potential to cleave specifically viral envelope glycoproteins, thereby enhancing viral fusion with host cell membranes,” conclude study authors.

This feature results in, “higher pathogenicity, pronounced neural symptoms and neurotropism in infected chickens,” according to the paper. That means, essentially, it kills more easily and causes nervous system damage while infecting nerve cells. Note that many of the human victims in China appear to suffer seizures and a total, almost instantaneous nervous system shutdown, literally collapsing in seconds.

 

Furthermore, this enhanced property of the virus results in, “a widening of the cell tropism of the virus,” meaning it allows the virus to live and thrive in a much wider variety of human cells, including respiratory system cells. This means the virus lives in both respiratory cells and nerve cells.

Interestingly, the study further confirms that “ACE2” receptors are the vector of opportunity for the virus to infect human beings, stating, “ACE2 is also the receptor of the newly emerged nCoV.”

Additionally, the study finds that another element of the CoVid-19 virus appears to have been assembled from the SARS coronavirus, further confirming Frances Boyle’s claim that the engineered weapon is a “chimera” of multiple strains of biological weapons, including SARS, MERS and HIV. From the study: “Notably, the IFPs of the 2019-nCoV and SARS-CoV are identical, displaying characteristics of viral fusion peptides (Fig. 2).”

Engineered to attack the human respiratory system, but there may be a defense… (you won’t like it)

The CoVid-19 coronavirus is specifically engineered to exploit the biology of the human respiratory system. Again, from the paper text:

Since furin is highly expressed in lungs, an enveloped virus that infects the respiratory tract may successfully exploit this convertase to activate its surface glycoprotein (Bassi et al., 2017; Mbikay et al., 1997). Before the emergence of the 2019-nCoV, this important feature was not observed in the lineage b of betacoronaviruses.

Finally, study authors explain that people who have already been exposed to other viral infections may have enhanced immunity against the coronavirus. From the study:

…it was recently shown that in an effort to limit viral infections, host cells that are infected by a number of viruses provoke an interferon response to inhibit the enzymatic activity of furin-like enzymes.

Although we caution that this supposition is just theory (so far), it may turn out that one way to boost defenses against the coronavirus could be to get infected with a weaker respiratory virus first. Stated another way, people who routinely interact with the public and are exposed to a wide variety of in-the-wild circulating viruses may be automatically building improved defenses by overcoming other viral infections first.

This finding has huge implications for individuals who take vaccines, given that vaccines expose the human body to weakened viral strains that often fail to provoke the full response of “in-the-wild” viruses such as seasonal influenza. Although the research did not focus on this point, it might also turn out that people who routinely take seasonal flu shots could theoretically demonstrate a weakened immune response against the coronavirus, while those who avoid flu shots and allow their own bodies to naturally fight the flu each year will show enhanced immunity against CoVid-19 coronavirus.

Or, arguably, it might work the other way around, where people who routinely take more vaccines and are exposed to a wider variety of weaker strains therefore have more capacity to produce an “interferon response.” It’s too early to tell, but it certainly seems to be the case that people who are rarely or never exposed to other viral pathogens may be far more vulnerable to this one.

New crosswalk underway on Charlotte Pike one day after pedestrian death.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Following a record 32 pedestrian deaths in Nashville last year, one person has died just about every week in the first month of 2020.

The most recent was on Charlotte Pike and Watts Lane Thursday, where a 38-year-old woman was struck and died at the hospital.

“Any time somebody’s trying to get somewhere for food or for shelter, you want them to get there safe and alive, so it’s pretty sad that someone had to lose their life to trying to get across the street,” said resident Christian Crawford.

While all three deaths were outside of crosswalks, residents in West Nashville say the lack of crosswalks on Charlotte Pike contributes to the problem.

“It’s becoming more and more frequent. I think a younger generation is kind of moving into this area and they like to walk. And restaurants benefit from that too, and commercial spaces so I definitely think that it’s increasing the traffic’s increasing and that it’s definitely a good idea to have crosswalks,” said Brooke Usher.

“I’ve had to hit the breaks a couple of times with people trying to get across the street almost every day, so it’s kind of scary,” Crawford added.

A crosswalk had been planned for one block over from where the woman was struck Thursday, but construction delayed due to fiber relocation.

The project started Friday.

Last weekend, Nashville’s mayor promised to make city streets safer to walk with his new “Vision Zero” initiative, identifying 14 priority spots.

But even with changes, rules will have to be followed by all modes of transportation.

“Crosswalks are really helpful and a great idea if everyone follows the rules. Drivers and pedestrians, if pedestrians stick to the crosswalks and if drivers respect the crosswalk,” said resident Sarah Amos.

Metro public works poured pole foundations for the new crosswalk on Charlotte Pike Friday.

This week, they plan to add road crossings and ramps.

During remarks at the annual Walk Bike Nashville Pedestrian memorial Event last week on the steps of the courthouse, Mayor John Cooper announced his administration’s commitment to Vision Zero to help eliminate traffic fatalities and severe injuries in Nashville and Davidson County.

Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries while increasing safe, healthy, and equitable mobility for all. First implemented in Sweden in the 1990s, Vision Zero is gaining momentum in major American cities including New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Vision Zero starts with the ethical belief that everyone has the right to move safely in their communities and that system designers and policy makers share the responsibility to ensure safe systems for travel.

“This is an important commitment for our city – one made in honor of those who have lost their lives in traffic fatalities and to help protect future generations of Nashvillians,” said Mayor Cooper. “Nashville is currently ranked number one in the state for injury crashes, speed crashes, and crashes among young and senior drivers. We must do better, and our commitment to Vision Zero will play an important role in turning those numbers around.

A great city is a walkable city, a bike-friendly city – one that shapes its transportation plan and mobility infrastructure around the safety and well-being of all residents and all modes of travel.”

Committing to Vision Zero requires the following strategies:
1. Building and sustaining leadership, collaboration and accountability, especially among a diverse group of stakeholders to include transportation professionals, policymakers, public health officials, police, and community members;
2. Collecting, analyzing and using data to understand trends and potential disproportionate impacts of traffic deaths on certain populations;
3. Prioritizing equity and community engagement;
4. Managing speed to safe levels; and
5. Setting a timeline to achieve zero traffic deaths and serious injuries that brings urgency, accountability and ensuring transparency on progress and challenges.

Mayor Cooper also announced that 14 locations of concern for pedestrian and cyclist safety – identified by Walk Bike Nashville – have been added to his administration’s transportation plan for priority safety improvements.

These locations include Church Street between 15th Ave N and 16th Ave N, Clarksville Pike between Buena Vista Pike and Cliff Dr, and Gallatin Pike between Eastland Ave and Chickamauga Ave.

The administration is also examining dangerous vehicular intersections throughout Davidson County, such as Hickory Hollow Parkway and Mt View Rd, Bell Road and Cane Ridge Road, and Broadmoor Drive and Dickerson Pike.

Since 1998, Walk Bike Nashville has sought to make active transportation an option for Nashvillians, no matter where they live or where they’re trying to go. The group uses a mix of educational programs focused on safety and skills, encouragement events for all ages and abilities, and grassroots advocacy to achieve its goals.

The Vision Zero Network is a collaborative campaign helping communities reach their goals of Vision Zero – eliminating all traffic fatalities and severe injuries – while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. As a nonprofit project, the Vision Zero Network is committed to defining, building momentum and advancing Vision Zero in communities across the United States.

 

Communists In Tennessee State Government Want History Erased. Call For Removal Of Nathan Bedford Forrest Bust.

General Nathan Bedford Forrest Versus the Ku Klux Klan.

By John A. Tures,

Contributor Professor of Political Science, LaGrange College

Think that if he were alive today, General Nathan Bedford Forrest would embrace Dylann Roof, the alleged killer of nine blacks in a Charleston Church who hoped to start a race war?

Think again. In fact, toward the end of his life, General Forrest would have likely sought to exterminate those who would kill blacks in his name, or for his “cause,” like Roof.

Sure General Nathan Bedford Forrest may have helped lead the Ku Klux Klan, and he’s blamed for the massacre of Ft. Pillow, but there’s a part of Forrest that needs to be told to those who continue to cheer him as a champion of the South. He eventually saw the light, softened his racism, and eventually worked to destroy the KKK. It was the best thing he ever did.

Forrest is a controversial figure today. He’s memorialized in a statue off Interstate 65 in Nashville, and I see it every time I visit my parents, who live one exit away. That statue, designed by the attorney for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassin, also surrounded by Confederate flags, is the subject of debate, as is the bust of him in the Tennessee statehouse, a response to Roof’s slaughter of African Americans after a bible study.

Now I’ve never been a fan of General Forrest. I wrote a column criticizing Generals William T. Sherman and General Nathan Bedford Forrest for their actions during the Civil War a week before the shooting, and published other articles in the past calling for Mississippi not to honor Forrest on a license plate, and Memphis not to have a statue for him.

But even this Forrest critic can admit that the Klan founder did one great thing for this country. He disbanded the KKK, and even worked to fight those who wanted to keep it going.

As Ben Phelan with PBS writes:

“After only a year as Grand Wizard, in January 1869, faced with an ungovernable membership employing methods that seemed increasingly counterproductive, Forrest issued KKK General Order Number One: “It is therefore ordered and decreed, that the masks and costumes of this Order be entirely abolished and destroyed.” By the end of his life, Forrest’s racial attitudes would evolve — in 1875, he advocated for the admission of blacks into law school — and he lived to fully renounce his involvement with the all-but-vanished Klan.”

If you read Eddy W. Davison’s “Nathan Bedford Forrest: In Search of the Enigma,” on page 464 and 474-475, you can see that Forrest not only publicly disavowed the KKK and worked to terminate it, but in August 1874, Forrest “volunteered to help ‘exterminate’ those men responsible for the continued violence against the blacks.” After the murder of four blacks by a lynch mob after they were arrested for defending themselves at a BBQ, Forrest wrote to Tennessee Governor Brown, offering “to exterminate the white marauders who disgrace their race by this cowardly murder of Negroes.”

So for those who seek to kill blacks while waving a Confederate flag, or those who burn African American churches across the South, including my state of Georgia, keep this in mind: General Nathan Bedford Forrest, and the Confederate War heroes you worship, wouldn’t have approved. In fact, they might have fought you for your illegal actions.

 

Tennessee GOP Lawmaker Wants To Oust Bust Of KKK Grand Wizard Nathan Bedford Forrest.

 

A Republican lawmaker in Tennessee is calling for the bust of a Confederate general and Ku Klux Klan grand wizard to be removed from the state Capitol.

State Rep. Jeremy Faison (R) said in an interview with The Tennessean, published Tuesday, that he believes the bust of Nathan Bedford Forrest should be moved to a museum and replaced with a statue honoring someone else.

“If we want to preserve history, then let’s tell it the right way,” Faison said. “Right now there are eight alcoves [in the Capitol]. Seven are filled with white men.”

The lawmaker made some suggestions for who could replace Forrest.

“How about getting a lady in there?” he said. “My daughter is 16, and I would love for her to come into the Capitol and see a lady up there. What’s wrong with Anne Dallas Dudley getting in that alcove?” (Dudley, originally from Nashville, was a prominent activist in the 19th-century suffragist movement.)

“What’s wrong with someone like Dolly Parton being put in that alcove?” Faison suggested, referring to the iconic singer from Locust Ridge. The lawmaker also said the state could erect a monument dedicated to the enslaved people who constructed the Capitol building.

Born in Tennessee, Forrest is known to history as a slave trader and the first grand wizard of the KKK. As a Confederate general, he led an attack in 1864 that has come to be known as the Fort Pillow Massacre. Three hundred Union soldiers, including 200 Black soldiers, are believed to have been killed, many as they were trying to surrender.

Activists and other Tennesseans have petitioned for years to remove two statues of Forrest, including the bust at the state Capitol. But many Republican politicians in the state, including Gov. Bill Lee, continue to defend Confederate monuments and Ku Klux Klan honors as “part of our history.”

Lee told The Tennessean last year that he believed it would be “a mistake to whitewash history” ― a way of framing the issue that Faison dismissed.

“I fundamentally reject any notion by someone saying that moving him [the Forrest bust] to the museum is trying to whitewash history,” Faison told The Tennessean.

He continued: “Hitler has earned his place in history, but they don’t put monuments of him in Germany anymore. There’s plenty of people who are notable characters. That doesn’t mean they deserve to be in a place of honor.”

Faison noted that he previously agreed with the governor but changed his mind after studying Forrest’s legacy at the suggestion of fellow state Rep. G.A. Hardaway (D), a Black lawmaker from Memphis.

Over the summer, Lee re-signed a proclamation declaring July 13 as Nathan Bedford Forrest Day in the state. The governor later said he would look into changing the law after facing criticism from Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who spoke out against the proclamation in a tweet.

Lee’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Faison’s remarks.

Tennessee Governor Wants To Amend Day That Honors Nathan Bedford Forrest.

POSTED 9:30 AM, JANUARY 20, 2020, BY AP

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Gov. Bill Lee will introduce legislation this year that would amend a law requiring Tennessee to honor Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest.

Lee’s office confirmed Friday that the Republican, who has previously expressed his displeasure over the honor, was working on the bill. The office did not provide further details.

According to the law in question, Tennessee governors must sign six proclamations throughout the year designating the following days of special observance: Robert E. Lee Day (January 19), Abraham Lincoln Day (February 12), Andrew Jackson Day (March 15), Confederate Decoration Day (June 3), Nathan Bedford Forrest Day (July 13) and Veterans’ Day (November 11).

The law encourages the governor to invite the public to observe each day in schools and churches. It does not, however, outline a penalty should the governor choose to not sign the proclamation.

Lee received national backlash in July when he not only signed the Nathan Bedford Forrest proclamation, but also declined to answer reporter questions over whether he thought the law should change. Lee later clarified that he didn’t like signing the proclamation and would prefer to see the law changed.

“While it is my job as governor to enforce the law, I want Tennesseans to know where my heart is on this issue,” Lee said at the time. “Our state’s history is rich, complex and in some cases painful. With this in mind, I will be working to change this law.”

As of Saturday, Tennessee’s secretary of state’s website did not show that Lee had signed the Robert E. Lee Day proclamation. His office also did not respond to questions if the governor wanted to change that day celebrating the Confederate general, which falls the day before Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Prior proclamations have said “Robert E. Lee is widely recognized as one of the outstanding Americans of the nineteenth century.”

Forrest, a Confederate cavalry general, amassed a fortune as a plantation owner and slave trader in Memphis before the Civil War.

He was in charge during the battle of Fort Pillow, where an estimated 300 African-American soldiers were massacred by Forrest’s men after surrendering. The massacre provoked outrage in the North and was one of the most bitterly disputed incidents in the Civil War.

“I know that it’s hard to renegotiate history, but at the end of the day we need to celebrate folks that bring people together and not necessarily tear people apart. I hope that we will consider that and reexamine all of these proclamations for state holidays,” said Sen. Raumesh Akbari, a Democrat from Memphis.

Meanwhile, Democratic Rep. London Lamar, also from Memphis, is sponsoring a bill this year to remove the Forrest Day designation.

Previous Democratic lawmaker attempts to change the law have been unsuccessful.

The attention to the Forrest proclamation comes as lawmakers also have debated for years on possibly moving the bust of Forrest that has sat inside the Tennessee Statehouse for decades.

A state commission is scheduled to meet in February to address the bust, just months after Lee appointed two new members to the panel.
