The radicalism of Black Lives Matter is beginning to spill out into the open.
The Marxist organization can no longer hide its stripes.
Now Black Lives Matter is terrorizing private businesses with one shocking threat.
The tragic death of George Floyd has emboldened radical groups to push for their policy goals.
Antifa – recently designated a domestic terror group – and Black Lives Matter are branches from the same communist tree.
Antifa proudly displays the hammer and sickle flag at some of their events, and the co-founder of Black Lives Matter has admitted they’re “trained Marxists.”
Since the core tenet of Marxism is the abolition of property rights, which most leftists know they can’t flat-out call for, they take baby steps to chip away at American freedom.
They can’t expropriate businesses like Hugo Chavez did after his socialist takeover of Venezuela, so they look for other ways to put their boot on property owners.
Which is why Black Lives Matter extremists in Louisville are literally extorting business owners.
The radicals made a list of demands to local businesses that included 23% of employees be black, 23% of vendors be black, 1.5% of revenue receipts go to BLM-approved causes as well as other demands.
One defiant store owner had property outside of his business destroyed but refuses to back down. Fernando Martinez, a Cuban immigrant who escaped Fidel Castro’s prison island, is not about to bend the knee to socialist punks.
He fled those policies in Cuba and certainly won’t abide by them in the United States.
Over 100 members of the Louisville Cuban community has banded together alongside Martinez to protest.
“La Bodeguita is open to everybody. If you’re gay, this is your home. If you’re Black, this is your home. If you’re white, this is your home. If you’re human, this is your home…How can I be called a bigot and a racist when my family is Black?” Martinez said during a rally they held.
Other Cubans held up signs that read: “We left Cuba because of socialism. Be careful what you wish for.”
Unfortunately, Martinez may be unaware that the left has created a new category of black people, called “politically black,” which is separate from ethnically black.
That pearl of knowledge comes from radical New York Times writer Nikole Hannah-Jones, author of the alternate history known as the 1619 Project.
But it’s encouraging that Americans are beginning to understand that Black Lives Matter is a socialist front group.
Socialists use an array of tactics to further their agenda and must be confronted every step of the way.
