“Black Lives Matter has many similarities to the national LGBT movement: The LGBT movement also uses false narratives (homosexuality is genetic, so-called “LGBT kids” are extremely unsafe at school, etc.) to push their larger agenda. They require allegiance from everyone. They use anger, threats, and intimidation to keep people in line (including getting people fired from their jobs). They do not tolerate any actual critical debate on their dogma….”
(MassResistance) When “Black Lives Matter” was born in the ashes of the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, they were rightly considered a fringe group by most Americans….
Violence has always been part of their mantra. Particularly repulsive was their call in public marches for the murder of police officers (“Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon!” and “What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want it? Now!”) They are loudly and unapologetically racist. All of this was quite out in the open.
But they were embraced early on by the Obama administration. BLM people visited the White House numerous times. They began to receive enormous funding from corporations, left-wing foundations, and likely government sources. In 2017, the National Football League announced they were donating $100 million to “social justice organizations.” Much of that money appears to have gone directly to BLM or its front groups.
Enormous money buys huge organizing power. Soon BLM clubs or programs were in public schools across America and promoted by the National Education Association. The group has become prominent in left-wing churches everywhere.
They do not hide their anti-family and anti-Christian goals. This is from the “What We Believe” page on the Black Lives Matters website:
We are unapologetically Black in our positioning….
We are guided by the fact that all Black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression, economic status, ability, disability, religious beliefs or disbeliefs, immigration status, or location.
We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women [men] who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence….
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.
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 foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).
It says nothing about freeing black people from the social pathologies that truly keep them down: unwed motherhood, fatherless homes, dependence on government, horrible inner-city schools, gangs, drug-infested neighborhoods, black-on-black crime, and massive abortion rates.
