Elite Backed Black Lives Matter : Various cities and towns throughout the United States have been plundered by the rioters since the murder of George Floyd killing. And while Black Lives Matter (BLM), with the support of the mainstream media and many politicians, continues to cry “bloody-murder,” it still refuses to address the tragedy of how many Black Americans are killed by their own, for example in gang warfare in the city of Chicago—in other words, Black lives do not matter according to the pseudo-social construct created by Black Lives Matter!
True, the riots and other domestic terrorist attacks have been also carried out by anarchist movements like Antifa; many whites and hispanics have also been part of the damaging and looting of stores. Nevertheless, for an organization that claims to fight for racial equality, BLM has yet to directly condemn the racial criminal acts, such as
- the defacing of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York with obscenities and the three letters BLM for Black Lives Matter, along with “George Floyd” and “No Justice, No Peace.”
- the graffiti on the Baba Sale synagogue (in Los Angeles) of Moroccan Jewish refugees named after the Rabbi who had helped lead Moroccan Jews out of the Muslim country and to Israel; the vandalism included “f— pigs,” “help minorities” and “BLM.”
The closest the BLM has gotten to a plea for peace on their website is this: “We embody and practice justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.” One would think that such anti-Christian and Jewish slander is reserved to Islamists, which raises the question if both BLM and Muslim hate groups are linked?
Elite Backed Black Lives Matter : Is there a link between the BLM and Islamists?
There is definitely a link between the BLM and domestic terrorist groups, at least one can say that they both tend to be birds of the same feather.
As Robert Spencer stated: “They know who their allies are.” Naturally, this does not mean that all Muslims support the riots. However, “Hamas-linked Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other subversive groups have been issuing pious statements of support for the ‘demonstrators,’ without a word of condemnation for the violent riots,” according to Spencer. “Groups that have the same goal tend not to criticize one another.”
As per a Crisis Magazine article, in a speech delivered to the Annual MAS-ICNA (Muslim American Society and Islamic Circle of North America) Convention in December 2015, Nihad Awad, the Executive Director of the CAIR, urged Muslim Americans to take up the cause of Black Lives Matter. “Black Lives Matter is our matter,” he said; “Black Lives Matter is our campaign.”
At the same conference, Khalilah Sabra, another Islamic-American activist, told the Muslim audience, “Basically you are the new black people of America… We are the “community that staged a revolution across the world. If we could do that, why can’t we have that revolution in America?” “That revolution” is apparently a reference to the “Arab Spring” revolutions which were inspired by the Muslim Brotherhood and which brought death and destruction to wide swaths of the Middle East and North Africa.
The BLM organization portrays itself and its targeted constituency as the exclusive injured party of white racial injustice, as with the case of George Floyd—certain in the Black community question Floyd’s murder was due to racism; we also know that police brutality is not limited to white against black, as in the case of a white Buffalo police officer knocking down a white elderly man this past week. Just like aforementioned Muslims who hate the principles of American democracy, the BLM has tactfully camouflaged its domestic terrorist agenda.
We see this, for example, in the advocacy of the two Somali Muslim rioters in Minneapolis who demanded the release of Mohamed Noor, a Somali Muslim former police officer who shot and killed an unarmed, Australian-born, white female, Justine Damond, for no reason in 2017, after she called 911 about a disturbance outside her home.
According to reports at the time, Damond called 911 to report an alleged assault that was taking place in an alley near her home. When police arrived, an unarmed Damond, 40, dressed in pajamas, approached their vehicle from the driver’s side door and began speaking with an officer when suddenly Noor opened fire, striking and killing her—strange how there has not been an outcry by the media or politicians on this.
Let us also not forget the para-military Nation of Islam (NOI) that justified the use of violence for social recognition or separatism instead of equality, as pushed by its most notable member Malcom X and his “by any means necessary” movement. The NOI still calls for Black Americans to have a separate state.
Elite Backed Black Lives Matter : Hypocrisy of BLM and its associates
The call for justice on the part of the Black Lives Matter is also one-sided. One has yet to hear BLM and its cronies, like the Rev. Al Sharpton or Oprah Winfrey lament the deaths of Zachary Randalls, Mark Gasset or David Jackson, white men who were murdered by in Fresno, California, in 2017 by Kori Ali Muhammad, a black racist who sought to kill as many white people as possible. Nor have we seen any nation-wide condemnation of the slaughter of 86-year-old Paul Marino and his 85-year-old wife Lidia, both of whom were killed in cold blood by a black man, Sheldon D. Francis on May 8. The couple was visiting their son’s gravesite at the Delaware Veterans Memorial Cemetery when Francis opened fire on the couple.
Keep in mind that there are numerous other white right-wing groups, such as the Ku Klux Klan, Proud Boys, the Patriot Front, etc., that should be outlawed as terror groups. Ironically, BLM tends to instigate the same hatred and violence. Instead of helping build up the lives of those Black Americans who have been marginalized and/or discriminated against, they compel them to return evil for evil. If BLM did care, it would be calling for harmony, highlighting Floyd’s brother, Terrance, who condemned the riots—this is certainly what peaceful civil rights activists, such as Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., would have done had they still been alive.
Black lives do matter, not because they are black but because, like everyone regardless of race, sex or color, they created in the image and likeness of God. A pity that this self-evident principle is sidetracked by those who in their pretension claim to help the marginalized.
