Terrorists... naw...

Problem with BLM is its "leaders" rarely seem to distance themselves from the radical fringe calling for the killing of police.

Simply saying we do not endorse or support any group calling for the murder of police, would immediately rally more people to their cause...

Also stop forcing things onto other groups... BLM members should have respected the Post orlando shooting vigil... they should have left the gay pride parade alone in Canadia I think it was.

Protest peacefully welcome... denounce the radical edge... welcome how can I help... but as they are run right now they are not helping any situation.

Well, law enforcement and the gov't completely disagrees with you.

"The White House plays no role in designating domestic terror organizations," nor does the U.S. government "generate a list of domestic terror organizations."



What a load of crap. Can't anyone make me think for a minute that the White House doesn't play a role in designating terrorist organizations and that the government doesn't have a list it consideres domestic terrorists.


if you DON'T have a list, you're negligent in protecting the citizens of this country

Their protected status? So you believe BLM is a terrorist group?


A white group doing and saying the things they are would be rightfully seen as a serious threat and a terrorist group.

I wouldn't be in such a hurry to call a political group terrorists because then we would see a lot of civil liberties fall on all sides. Conservative groups could be called terrorists as well.


Oh really? Which groups are those?

These open calls have transcended disgusting and landed squarely in the middle of the purest racist hate speech.


Well then Mr. G.

Anyone that dares 'criticize' the KKK are 'racist'.

How bout them apples?


Source it.

SOURCE IT!

Nothing good could come from an event like that happening.

Actually, "BLM" is a disparate group of people across the county. The average person participating in an protest action is probably just like most of us ... a normal citizen trying to get by.

There is a historical basis for systemic racism in this country. Things are better today, in general, but problems of racism are far from being solved. The ridiculous contention that only folks like BLM are racist now is absurd. The argument and justifications for same contradicts itself.

The endless comparisons to the "KKK" are ridiculous. The history of the KKK is from its inception one of violence -- arson, lynching, armed intimidation, etc.

If you refer to the 1867 version, one of their first actions was to forcibly confiscate firearms from the homes of Black Americans. Hundreds of Black Americans were killed in the South in the space of about three years.

The endless comparisons to BLM are simply ridiculous.

As a group of activists or at least a group notably dedicated to activism, or just normal people that see the problems that BLM points out ... and these Americans have the right to concentrate on problems where they see them. Freedom of speech and assembly are for everyone.

It doesn't matter if you don't see the issues the same as the folks in BLM. It doesn't matter if a certain set of statistics support or refute their claims. Some of these folks see themselves and their community as being at the tip of a spear 250 (and more) years in the making.

The violence is wrong. Blocking streets is wrong. Threatening other people including LEOs is wrong.

But the movement itself, based around the core elements:



#BlackLivesMatter is working for a world where Black lives are no longer systematically and intentionally targeted for demise. We affirm our contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face of deadly oppression. We have put our sweat equity and love for Black people into creating a political project–taking the hashtag off of social media and into the streets. The call for Black lives to matter is a rallying cry for ALL Black lives striving for liberation.


Black Lives Matter - About

So, if you notice, there is nothing there condemning anyone of any race.

There is no statement that one race is better or above or worse or below any other.

To concentrate on making life better for one's own community, to address particular well-known and easily-provable facts, is not a racist act.

Have there been racist acts associated with BLM? Yes, of course. There's no excuse for violence.

But there's also no excuse for the constant thinly veiled racism that passes here, and lets use the same two criteria:

1. Do opponents of BLM condemn any one of any particular race?

2. Do opponents of BLM regularly claim that one race is worse than any other?

Answer those questions honestly, and the real racists are plain to see.

1. RE demands for "SOURCE IT!" .... It seems you have little appreciation for irony.

2. BLM is not even a unified movement as such, much less a unified organization, etc. It is not a terrorist organization ... because it's not an organization.

You can't tell them that it's hard to understand facts and reality in some cases if not all.

Big time. A pseudo group actually who entices violence and hate speech, a group that in its foundation has the hate toward white people deserves to be labeled as the biggest terrorist organization in USA and Canada. And it's a big stain of shame to all blacks in both countries.

You're stating that about 14 million Americans are all responsible based on nothing more than their race for a group you don't personally like (which you're mischaracterizing on a fraudulent scale?

I'm sure you don't see this as a racist statement at all.

Which of the recognized 38 chapters spread across the US (one in Canada) has committed acts of terrorism?

Not protests, or acts of trespass, vandalism or so forth ... violence, who has the organization killed, wounded, beaten up or done actual violence to? What buildings or vehicles have been blown up?

I'm not interested in vapid generalizations here, nor the repeated claim that "we all know" these repeated "terrorist" acts have actually happened.

Thanks.

You're implying that my statement is racist because I'm condoning a group who in its core has a racist philosophy, a group that entices violence whose members are attacking and killing law enforcement officers all over the country?
