Black Lives Matter has dangerously become mainstream.
The word is slowly getting out that they’re a radical extremist group.
But Black Lives Matter showed their true colors with one outrageous statement.
Black Lives Matter has been trying to portray themselves as nothing more than an anti-police brutality group, while the founders admit to being “trained Marxists.”
That far-left framework is the true identity of the movement.
That’s why so many people have committed acts of violence in the name of BLM, but the group shields itself by claiming to be decentralized.
However, if people in MAGA hats were running around and beating people and murdering people, the entire left would blame Donald Trump.
BLM should be forced to denounce their radical factions if they’re serious about nonviolence, but they won’t because they aren’t.
And that was made abundantly clear yet again when a BLM activist in Chicago made a jaw-dropping statement.
Before a riled-up crowd, activist Alycia Moaton said:
“People are worried about looting, and there are literal lives being taken away? There are people who are dying, and y’all are mad about people looting Mag Mile? Get over it! These buildings are insured. Materials will come back, but we will not come back if they kill us!”
Moaton was referring to an unprecedented level of looting that recently took place in Chicago, much of which was exacerbated by the district attorney failing to prosecute thefts.
First, Moaton uses the common “people are dying” line, but the data doesn’t support that claim.
Approximately nine unarmed black people were shot and killed by the police in 2019, and some of those instances were justified because the victims were still using deadly force (e.g. a car).
Second, Moaton’s claim that looting is no big deal and people should just “get over it” is ridiculous.
It’s also part of the problem ailing communities in Chicago.
Theft and property damage take resources out of the economy as a whole; the “broken window” fallacy shows that destruction has hidden costs that ripple out.
Also, crime begets more crime, and when businesses are threatened, they leave.
When the businesses leave, so do jobs and property taxes.
This cycle further depresses areas socioeconomically.
But BLM radicals like Moaton don’t understand this.
If they did, they wouldn’t be wild-eyed socialists and destructionists.
In the wake of George Floyd’s death, calls to defund the police echoed through left-wing circles, but Americans of all races are not in favor of it.
A movement that finds looting acceptable should be condemned.
Without rule of law, America would quickly descend into chaos, and nobody but the hard-left wants that.
They believe they can install their communist utopia if society collapses.
Americans cannot let socialism, the destroyer of civilizations, to gain a foothold.
