Black Lives Matter's website declares itself a non-violent organization

Source


We embody and practice justice, liberation, and peace in our engagements with one another.


Yet BLM chairman Hank Newsome has yet to speak out against the looting. Quite the opposite:

The civil rights leader also claimed that peaceful protest is the 'tool of white supremacy', posting the interview to Instagram and slamming Lahren as 'White Supremacist Barbie'.



Newsome highlighted that only 'one percent' of the demonstrations would include any form of destructive protest but he did not condemn them, instead claiming that such forms of protests are 'the American way'.



'It is OK to vandalize, to light things on fire and to loot businesses because the United States of America drops bombs on other countries, and because we have problems... people have grievances.'



'I think that it is a tool of white supremacy to say if you want freedom, then you get it by protesting peacefully,' Newsome continued.

'Why is it a tool of white supremacy?

'Because the white supremacists who built this country never earned anything peacefully. They did it through bullets and blood. And that's the American way.'


While he makes a poignant statement about the country being birthed on bullets and blood, he's clearly ignoring and contradicting BLMs own mission statement and the horrendous Black on Black homicide rate.

This is not an anti-black sentiment post. Just the opposite. I just want people to simply acknowledge the truth.

I feel we need to make the distinction between the reality that Black Lives Matter and the contradictory motives and actions of the Black Lives Matter Organization.

The name 'Black Lives Matter' is how they've cleverly made it impossible for the mainstream media to call out their ignorance and hypocritical actions.

Funny the massive list of corporations backing BLM.
CBKLSM
Corporate backed killing of last small businesses.
Feels like corporate warfare on society.
These rioters don't do any measurable damage to large corporations.
Time to demand rico act or conspiracy charges against any corporation funding this bs.

They should really learn their history and the words of their leaders... Not the leaders that hijacked his movement:




And like Malcolm X says... Black Democrats are Chumps




and his views on political sides....

Other than this man being pretty racist - He actually had some good points.

I've been studying their website for about a month. Even started a thread on it earlier in June. It looks like the leadership has changed but the website has not been updated.

Of course he supports it. Why not? The media has created an image in which not only is it ok, but it's celebrated.
Cambridge University professors even feel comfortable enough to make tweets like these:


twitter.com...

This is the world we live in today.

There's definitely a legal president for RICO here given the amount of written and public statements made. I'm sure lawyers are mulling it over as we speak, however bad the optics.

And yet a few years later King said...

“Let us say boldly that if the violations of law by the white man in the slums over the years were calculated and compared with the law-breaking of a few days of riots, the hardened criminal would be the white man. These are often difficult things to say but I have come to see more and more that it is necessary to utter the truth in order to deal with the great problems that we face in our society.”

His entire stance on what the peaceful protests were achieving, he himself called into question near the end of his life. Would you like the tell the whole story?... Or would you like the cherrypick LMK when referencing him? He himself didn't outwardly promote violence, but he understood exactly why they were happening and understood that they were symptoms of the systemic racism perpetrated against the black community. These are attempts to end a race war that's been going on for hundreds of years, not start one.

When Kaepernick took a knee without even saying a word he was threatened, condemned by the right, called a violent thug and a racist. There apparently isn't a protest that comes to the defense of black people that is ever peaceful enough. Perhaps if they protested so quietly that they just faded away? Maybe that be good enough?

far as I'm concerned BLM is a terrorist group, they are the new Antifa.

They embody and practice justice ?

What the frack ?

They've got a funny definition of it.

BLM is an international CRIME syndicate.

The antithesis of justice.

A) Black-owned businesses have been destroyed during the looting.

B) Black on Black crime is at an all-time high.

C) Soon there won't be police in their communities.

Your statement only holds water if you subscribe to the narrative that all cops are bad and all of America is racist.

Yuri Bezmenov says it best:

It's all part of the plan. They push Marxism and get you riled up and make you think you'll be on top when it's all over but in the end, all they do is line you up against the wall and execute you because you're just a useful idiot...

That's right...

Tell everyone...

You want to change the parish or county name? We'll change it to Donald Trump County.

Wanna change the school name? We'll change it to Donald Trump High.

Wanna tare down statues? Go on... For every one we take down - we replace it with a statue of Donald Trump.


No one will wanna change $#!% after that.

I wish I could sit ppl down like Hank Newsome, give them a hug and say 'Dude, show me how I can help you in a non-destructive way.' But Hank doesn't want that, and there's evidence to back this. In doing so he's abandoned at least half of the allies BLM could've had.
