Leaders of Black Lives Matter (BLM) have been public about their Marxist ideology. Marxism is regarded as “the political and economic theories of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, which their followers later elaborated to lay the groundwork for communist thinking and practice.”
Before 2020, the BLM destroyed property and harmed individuals in large-scale protests against police violence, racial injustice, and income inequities. They can be heard chanting for white people to give over their property and for police officers to be slain.
Black Lives Matter Utah Chapter has posted a tweet in defiance of the American flag, stating, “When we Black Americans see this flag, we know the person flying it is not safe to be around. When we see this flag, we know the person flying it is a racist. When we see this flag, we know that the person flying it lives in a different America than we do. When we see this flag, we question your intelligence. We know to avoid you. It is a symbol of hatred.”
Hatred for what exactly? Everybody in the United States enjoys the same level of liberty and opportunity as the next. Labeling someone racist just because of a flag is like labeling someone as violent for carrying the BLM flag. That’s certainly isn’t true.
BLM is quick to defend its members by separating themselves from violent activities yet group all others in the same category at their convenience. BLM spouts rhetoric about Law Enforcement such as “Pigs in a blanket fry them like bacon” to assume all Law Enforcement officers are violent, racist, and full of hate.
Recently, Patrisse Cullors, founder of BLM, has resigned after heavy backlash for buying multi-million-dollar houses and exploiting black deaths at the hands of police. It questions the legitimacy of the organization.
The organization has ignored comments by President Biden that have been blatantly racist. Biden said, “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids” while speaking at an event for Asian and Hispanic voters. Excuse me, but what did he say? Claiming all minorities are poor? Claiming all white people are rich? That’s how far from reality you can become after 47 years in politics. Biden also said that desegregation would cause his kids to grow up in a “racial jungle.” Seriously? And this man isn’t a racist?
The ignorance shown in comments such as BLM of Utah points at why nobody takes the organization seriously. Yes, they’ve violently damaged hundreds of cities across the country. Still, you can’t help but chuckle to yourself when comparing the American flag to be some “racist ideology test.” It’s important to note that Joe Biden frequently wears an American flag pin on his suit. So when is he going to be held accountable for that?
BLM has single-handedly pushed “white guilt” and “unconscious bias” into the political realm. Unconscious bias is the brain deciding for the individual based on your brain making quick judgments that affect a decision based on race. Sound ridiculous? It is.
BLM Utah Chapter stated, “Welcome, Racist. We know you’re enraged by the racist flag post. You will not be heard in this room. Your account will be disabled, and your comments will be removed. For every bigot we block, we will donate $1 to AOC’s election campaign. Thank you for your contribution to AOC’s re-election. We’ll write down your names and credit each donation to you. Comment below to assist her in returning to Washington.”
To suggest that anyone takes AOC seriously is an overstatement.
The difficulty with this sort of jargon is that it refers to everyone who serves or loves our country. Americans do not come in the colors white, black, brown, yellow, or purple. We call ourselves Americans. As easy as that. We assist our neighbors, respect one another by waving as we walk by, and holding the door open for the person behind us. Individuals like the ones mentioned by BLM Utah are shunned and certainly not tolerated by most Americans. Racism is uncommon in our society. There’s a reason America is known as the melting pot. Though not all of our past is lovely, we came in and altered that as a group.
The message stated that if the things we said triggered you, it indicates you are a true racist. Well, so much for free expression and free speech.
