BLM Demands Democrat Allegiance
Black Lives Matter isn't about black lives. It's about black votes for Democrats.
Black Lives Matter cofounder Patrisse Cullors insists that the Democrat Platform isn’t radical enough. “Without the sea changes our movement recommended for the 2020 Democratic platform,” Cullors said this week, “any claims to allyship and solidarity with our work to fight for Black liberation are for naught.” The DNC didn’t yet take up her demands, but don’t underestimate the power of this radical group to drive an even more extreme leftward shift for Democrats — a party already largely directed by the Bernie Sanders wing.
Remember, Cullors recently declared, “We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories.” Her BLM partner, Alicia Garza, self-identifies as “a queer social justice activist and a Marxist.”
Indeed, the Black Lives Matter organization is thoroughly Marxist, which is what makes the otherwise noncontroversial phrase “black lives matter” such a poison pill for anyone who’s thinking instead of feeling through race issues.
So what does BLM want from Democrats? According to The Daily Wire, “Cullors and others … are pushing a radical party reformation agenda called the ‘BREATHE Act,’ which demands not only a full defunding of law enforcement but the elimination of the Drug Enforcement Agency, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency, and most federal prison programs. The proposal calls for an end to life sentences, [a] timeline to close all federal prisons, and a plan to repeal ‘federal laws that criminalize human movement and border entry.’ It demands that states repeal all existing juvenile offenses, that police be stripped of search and surveillance powers, and removing police from most community posts, including from schools. … The measure also demands reparations.”
That is a remarkably radical agenda, and if Joe Biden brings a Democrat Senate along with him in November, America may indeed undergo a fundamental transformation.
