Can anyone Confirm ot Deny that Black Lives Matter - London has a goal to "Dismantle Capitalism"?

I've watched this video and the guy thinks that one of the Black Lives Matter events was staged. That's a discussion for another thread, but in the video he says that Black Lives Matter - London has a goal to "Dismantle Capitalism".

You can watch the whole thing, but he says it at 2:08

BLM Staged Event

S?o not just a goal of Black Lives Mattering?

Or is this guy wrong?

EDIT: I might have put this in the wrong sub-forum.

I dunno, but if you wanna get rid of capitalism, you might wanna remove the guards of that private property waiting to be bought in stores. In other words........

Ya know; The Police

Hey, if Capitalism isn't working why not dismantle it? Not understanding your confusion.

BLM has been hijacked by Marxists and the anti-capitalists crowd. The easily led and manipulated. The politics of diviseness and intolerence.

The anti-racist message has been subverted by wider politics. There are numerous BLM groups out there, each with its own objectives. Each with it's own crowd funding page, proving that you can be both anti-capitalist and have an eye out for a money-making opportunity, eh?

I am sure there are some BLM groups who remain single-focussed and are sticking to their intent of anti-racim, which I personally support. However, I cannot support BLM when it is so corrupted.

Speculation without fact, as usual here on ATS. Just saying.

I'm sure you could do some research yourself. There are plenty of sources out there which describe the confusion. Just a quick look reveals BLM is all over crowd funding sites, but which one is correct? Which one is just focussed on anti-racism? Just a random selction. The first one is the anti-capitalists, who have raise £1M+ so far...

BLM UK
BLM ?
BLM legal support?

BLM UK rich anti-capitalists...


We’re guided by a commitment to dismantle imperialism, capitalism, white-supremacy, patriarchy and the state structures that disproportionately harm black people in Britain and around the world. We build deep relationships across the diaspora and strategise to challenge the rise of the authoritarian right-wing across the world, from Brazil to Britain.

BLack Lives Matter was well intentioned and anything aimed at stopping and preventing racism is only a good thing.

But it has been taken over by people seeking to further other agenda's, namely globalisation, woke politically correct snowflakeism and even some imagined utopian vision of what socialism should be.

I am old enough to have witnessed the worst of systemic and inherent racism in UK society and I can remember the Rock Against Racism campaign and many others since.
Great efforts have been made to eliminate racism here in the UK and no-one can deny the great strides forward that have been made.
And we must never let our guard down and continuously fight the fight against racism no matter what form it takes.

But Black Lives Matter is divisive and has set race relations back in this country.
It promotes everything we fought against back in the day and encourages confrontation between people who should be uniting.

I know many people, if not most, will disagree with me on this.

A plane flew over the Man City ground last night bearing a banner reading 'White Lives Matter'.
This was immediately labelled racist and was condemned by everyone on Sky Sports etc.
Why is that statement racist yet Black Lives Matter isn't?

I will continue to fight and oppose racism whenever and wherever I come across it.
It is repugnant and abhorent.
But I will not make some sort of token, manufactured gesture like 'Take the knee' and nor do I think the Black Lives Matter campaign is now doing anything that is beneficial in the continuing fight against racism.

Apologies but rant over.

I can tell you, but you won't like the answer.

I read something about BLM a while back that said that some of them want White Men exterminated.

Be prepared.

honestly how hard is it for you lot to grok what's going on here
BLM is not a political party. It's not a matter of policies and dot points.
It's an organic movement caused by decades of worsening injustice and of COURSE you're going to have different people within that movement believing different aspects are the most important.
Just like how at your precious anti-mask rallies, there was an overall unified message but if you talk to individuals everyone has a different take on priorities and tactics.
what am i saying? humans are humans? bold statement i know! she's gone off the deep end!

eta; while i'm here, dismantling capitalism may or may not be a goal of any number of people involved in the protests in london but i'll tell you this for nothing pal, it's sure as heck on my bucket list. CAPITALISM GOTTA GO

absolute raging pathetic paranoia. you should be ashamed.

the REAL reason why WLM is racist where BLM is not is because BLM was an original movement drawing attention to real injustices in the world, and now ALM and WLM and whatever else you wanna throw have come along whingeing like "noooooo what about uuuuuuuus"

It's like if your child died horribly, and you were at their funeral grieving, and then into the church burst all these goons waving banners like ACTUALLY ALL CHILDREN ARE PRECIOUS or MY CHILD HAS THE FLU WHAT ABOUT HIM HEY
like it's so far beyond tone deaf it's ridiculous.

and then you add this ### "actually they want to kill us!!" in there and then look around all innocent eyes wondering why you're being called racist? so damn low dude. soooo damn low.
