Do you know the differences in the freedoms that the Iranian people and the BLM movement are fighting for? You should look them up. 


BLM is just a place holder, what they are getting at is police aka government abuse of it's citizens.

Doesn't matter, the article said as much, but the Russians zeroed in on abuse of AA citizens because it's easier to understand, given our nation's history.

Residual Communists
through and through.

Not only manipulating the
United States African American Community,
but giving them a False Narrative as well.

Promises of Free Stuff ,Hope ,and Opportunity
for their vote.

All the while sustaining a perpetual project
of despair. This is their Modus Operandi.
Worldwide.

What a sinful disgrace.

And that would bring about questions on the reasons for the protests. So....

And it is not just this nation's history, it is every nations history.

They are not aiming at AA communities, they are driving home the point that we have dirt on our shoes, and so we cannot point out dirty boots on the other guy,

And free stuff¿?? What are you talking about, what " free stuff" a bunch of Russian oligarchs giving to AAs.

Yeah, I thought this situation was pretty hilarious. I hadn't seen the BLM reference, but I'd read about how the UN rejected Trump & Haley's proposal against Iran over the protests. It was hilarious because I was just reading that many right wingers supposedly didn't like the UN, yet here we had the Trump administration trying to get the UN to move against Iran.

It was equally hilarious because it was implying that conservatives wanted the UN to get involved when there are protests in a country. The first thing that popped in my mind were the Tea Party protests, Occupy Wall Street protests, Black Lives Matter protests, the Women's Marches of 2017, the protests at Trump's inauguration, etc. The phrase "Be careful what you wish for" came to mind.

Free Stuff:
Housing Assistance
Welfare Checks
Medicaid
Cell Phone
Food Stamps
And More
Student Benefits, etc.

Someone has to pay for this all.
First rule of Economics: There is no free lunch.
In other words, the working stiffs have to pay
for those who don't work.

God knows the Ultra Rich don't.
You know, the 300 people that own 70%
of the worlds wealth.
So don't be so pissed off at the blood,sweat,
and tears people who have to carry the load.
Because that is exactly what the 300 want.

That is, to divide and conquer.

And the above is about given free stuff to AAs?? Pls think about the above before replying.
And again Russian oligarchs is giving the above to AAs, I don't think they give any of the above to broke Russian citizens.
But yeah divide and conquer a point of theirs.

“Let there be no doubt whatsoever,” she said, “the United States stands unapologetically with those in Iran who seek freedom for themselves.”

Proof positive the US is behind the unrest in Iran, another smae-same 'regime change' in the making.

But that's just it tho, there is real discontent among the young in Iran, no one really likes living in a theocracy , they always suck, they saw no benefit from the release of funds that were withhold by the banks, here we go jumping in and will end up thwarting real organic change from within.

Are you insinuating that African Americans don't also work or pay taxes? Or that our tax money isn't spent on BS that we also don't care about?

Do you think I want my taxes going to that stupid wall, or to our stupid empire of overseas military bases, or towards the stupid "war on drugs", or to the stupid no-bid contracts for Halliburton or one of its subsidiaries? I'd rather my tax dollars go towards programs that help poor people than go towards more corporate welfare to powerful banks, defense contractors, and pharmaceutical companies that don't even need the money.

And the last time I checked, American social safety net programs go to Americans from all racial demographics.

We really need to set examples - like de-militarizing cops and firefighters.


Firefighters? How do they play into this?
