Biden’s BLM State Department
State employees are encouraged to fly BLM flags and further the narrative.
On the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death, Joe Biden’s State Department is encouraging employees to promote the Marxist Black Lives Matter organization via flying “the Black Lives Matter flag.” According to an anonymous source within the State Department, a memo was circulated on Saturday that reads in part, “The Department supports the use of the term ‘Black Lives Matter’ in messaging content, speeches, and other diplomatic engagements with foreign audiences to advance racial equity and access to justice on May 25 and beyond. We encourage posts to focus on the need to eliminate systemic racism and its continued impact.”
It’s been clear from day one that the Biden administration embraces the divisive and Marxist doctrine known as Critical Race Theory, as well as the BLM “systemic racism” narrative. “Last year, the horrific video of Mr. Floyd’s final 9 minutes and 29 seconds went viral and spurred Black Lives Matter protests worldwide, in response to his senseless killing and to demand an end to systemic racism and police brutality,” the State memo reads. “One year later, many in the international community will honor Mr. Floyd and acknowledge the long journey nations face to advance racial justice.”
And here we were led to believe racial injustice was a uniquely American problem.
Was it not Biden’s anti-American UN ambassador whose throwing our nation under the bus over the dubious charge of “systemic racism” opened the door for China to effectively dismiss any criticism of its own current human rights abuses? At a diplomatic meeting in Anchorage, China’s director of the Central Commission for Foreign Affairs, Yang Jiechi, used BLM’s narrative as a cudgel against the U.S.: “We believe that it is important for the United States to change its own image and to stop advancing its own democracy in the rest of the world. Many people within the United States actually have little confidence in the democracy of the United States.”
Where did this idea come from? Joe Biden’s own incessant “America Worst” pronouncements.
One might conclude that Team Biden has failed to learn its lesson, since its players continue to promote and promulgate a false narrative that is becoming increasingly unpopular. In truth, however, the Biden administration’s actions are a deliberate attempt to prop up a false narrative for political reasons.
Even so, recent polling shows that Americans’ support for BLM has dropped back down to the level it was in the year prior to Floyd’s death. After a summer of
peaceful violent protests and riots coupled with a narrative that failed to accurately present the facts — namely that the number one threat to black lives is not the police but other blacks — Americans have grown tired of the movement. The “anti-racism” demands of the CRT advocates behind BLM activism are being exposed for their promotion of a legitimately racist and anti-American ideology.
Floyd’s death was not the racial reckoning the Left demanded. Rather it was an event exploited by extremists in their efforts to attack the very fabric of American society writ large. The Biden administration is more than happy to continue the effort in an official capacity. And if doing so damages America’s standing and work in the world? Well, then we deserved to be knocked down a few pegs.
