To begin with, some would get sensitive now and say “you’re not black so you have no right to criticize Black Lives Matter, otherwise you’re racist and you hate black people”. Well, yes, I’m not black or African American, but if telling the truth is racist then there’s no hope for the world we live in. Don’t think that there are only two sides: either pro-Black Lives Matter or a white supremacist.
Show me a movement of black liberation from the black people, by the black people and for the black people (not from elite activists and liberal billionaires) then I would be the first one to support it.
So in the light of the recent events, there are suspicions that the “Black Lives Matter” movement is infiltrated, or the word that is often used is “co-opted”. To be clear, infiltrating or co-opting a movement means that the movement was originally genuine and grassroot, then it got hijacked by an outside factor which intervened and directed it to a different direction.
So is BLM co-opted / infiltrated or was it suspicious from the very beginning, since the days it was founded ? This movement, which started as supposedly a protest, a response, to the violence against African Americans, was founded by few black women. Let’s take a look at the background of some of these women, as well as that of other prominent BLM activists.
1. Alicia Garza: BLM co-founder. Activist and writer. Her writings were featured in The Guardian, Rolling Stone, and Huffington Post. She was awarded twice by the Harvey Milk Democratic Club (affiliated to the Democratic Party).
2. Opal Tometi: of Nigerian origin. BLM co-founder. Like Alicia Garza, her work was published in mainstream media outlets such as Time Magazine and Huffington Post. She participated with the UN’s “Global Forum on Migration” and “Commission on the Status of Women”. In 2013, she was invited to the White House to meet Heather Foster, Obama’s liaison on African American community. She runs “Black Alliance for Just Immigration”, which received $100,000 from the one and only one, George Soros, through his Open Society Foundations, in 2011.
Soros is the billionaire who is famous for for funding activists, NGOs and civil society organizations that caused protests and unrest in countries all over the world. He funded several BLM organizations such as “Organisation for Black Struggle” and “Dream Defenders”. Moreover, “Colorlines“, an online magazine which highly promoted BLM through social media, received from Soros $200,000 . Colorlines is issued by a research center called Race Foward (formerly known as Applied Research Center), which one of its board members was awarded by Soros’ “Open Society Foundations”.
3. Patrisse Cullors: Another BLM co-founder and activist. Works for Ella Baker Center for Human Rights (on its list of donors you find Soros’ “Open Society Foundations”) as a “Director of Special Projects“. She and the other two BLM co-founders (Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi) were runners-up in 2015 for “The Person of the Year” of a magazine called “The Advocate” (an evil witch is on the mag cover on WikiPic) along with other elite celebrity figures involved with LGBT activism such as Miley Cyrus and Caitlyn Jenner.
4. Johnetta Elzie: BLM activist, and Amnesty International field organizer. Yep, the same Soros-backed Amnesty International. She also co-edits the protest newsletter called “This Is The Movement” along with fellow BLM activist Deray McKesson.
5. Deray McKesson: BLM activist. He met Bernie Sanders and went to a Hillary Clinton rally. Not judging anyone here, but a supposed revolutionary would be aware enough that Hillary Clinton has nothing good to offer neither to the African American community nor to anyone except her elite friends. Back to Deray; Yale invited him as a guest lecturer on “Transformational Leadership”. The name of the course itself is suspicious. Recruiting NGO activists usually takes place at universities, as well as training them to be “leaders” and active in civil society. “Fabricating” and training student activists in such “laboratories” is typical nowadays, so instead of having leaders, or activists who emerge out of the aspirations of their own local community, we have faux-leaders and faux-activists emerging out of establishment NGOs aspirations. McKesson worked for “Teach For America“, an organization which basically recruits graduates to become teachers. If you skim through its list of donors you’ll come across some jaw-dropping names of big capitalist corporations and elite foundations such as Chevron, Bank of America, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Monsanto Fund, and… Goldman Sachs.
6. Shaun King: another BLM activist. Like Deray McKesson, he’s also a big fan of the Democratic Party. He launched “Justice Together” in 2015, whose board includes Deray McKesson as well as people from the Rockfeller Foundation.
So, we basically have BLM founders and activists invited to the White House, participated in UN programs, promoted by elite media such as The Guardian, Rolling Stone etc, worked for “non-profit” organizations financed by the big corporations and/or by Soros, praised by university corporates as “transformational leaders”, promoting and promoted by the Democratic Party, as well as BLM organizations and media outlets themselves receiving funds from Soros. Such a movement that has dubious connections could not be much of the radical anti-establishment group we wished for.
The famous African American activist Assata Shakur, who BLM consider as an idol (or claim to do so), is wanted by the US government and accused by it of murder. She is NOT promoted in mainstream media, she’s denounced instead. She’s NOT invited to meet officials or presidential candidates; those see her as a criminal, and even a terrorist. Rulers and their media hate and defame true radicals, not promote them!
“Radical leftists” not so radical, after all. In short, controlled opposition. Black Lives Matter? More like Soros’ Dollars Matter. Not exactly saying that there are no good people whatsoever in this movement with good intentions. I’m sure there are, and they’re there because they got their hopes up about the movement not knowing who is behind it. So no, BLM is not “infiltrated”, however, it infiltrates.
What’s more shocking is that an israeli version of BLM, in israel, protested, in opposition to police brutality there against Jewish black people, at the same time when BLM protests erupted in Baltimore, USA.
Definitely black people in israel aren’t as privileged as white Ashkenazi Jews, but they’re both occupying the land of the Palestinians to which they have no right! So what about Palestinian lives? Don’t they matter? Even let’s not forget that African Americans as well are on a land which is not theirs, just like white Americans, the land is for the natives, the difference is that the ancestors of African Americans came there against their own will, as slaves.
So why did Soros and his globalist friends make such a movement emerge? Does Soros actually have compassion for black people and wants to help them get out of their suffering? Definitely no. Soros & Co do not care about African Americans. Black lives do not matter for them, and will never matter! Soros has an agenda which he wants to achieve through BLM. What is this agenda?
Probably US government is afraid. Afraid that a true movement for black liberation would come out and challenge them. So they and Soros created a movement which claims the cause and at the same time is supported by mainstream liberals. They want to infiltrate the black community, and their struggle for liberation, with movements and organizations similar to those who caused the “Arab Spring”.
And BLM aren’t really clear about their goals. Like, if their goal is to end police brutality, then let’s face it, police brutality is not only a problem of black people, white people also suffer from it especially if they are poor or homeless, also other ethnicities like Hispanics. So why only oppose police brutality against blacks, why not oppose police brutality against EVERYONE? And why not focus on other aspects in which black people are oppressed? Definitely they have other problems that are as important as police brutality (which isn’t the problem of them alone).
Moreover, one of the BLM organizations created the slogan “hands up, don’t shoot”. I do have issues with the BDS-ish “nonviolent resistance” and “civil disobedience”, however, if BLM claim to follow such a norm then why do they promote the thug life and gangster culture? This kind of culture is NOT revolutionary armed resistance, it is a stereotype created by the media to brand black people, so why embrace the stereotype, why not fight it? Malcolm X must be turning in his grave right now.
And sometimes the movement goes into extremes and turns to hating white people altogether. It could be a reaction to the racism existing in the US society, but blind reactions lead the cause nowhere. How would you solve racism with more racism? Especially, as mentioned before, that there are white people who are also oppressed, by the police. Instead of people of all races uniting against the government, they fight because of their skin color. Well done Soros, with the divide-and-conquer method.
So I’ll address this issue because I noticed that only right-wing and alt-right websites are complaining about it (for example here), and anyone who reads this blog would know that it supports neither right-wing nor alt-right, and someone other than them should talk about this. Basically, Soros Dollars Matter decided to antagonize the so-called “Western-prescribed nuclear family”. In the “Guiding Principles” section of their official website, in the “Black Villages” part, they consider their goal as follows:
“We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable.”
Yes, the nuclear family living alone is a western thing, a tribe living together is the African thing, but this tribe * is * formed of a bunch of nuclear families, with mother, father and kids, so you can’t revive the tribal system if you dismantle the nuclear family and form some hippie-dippie communes. It’s really difficult to revive it and you solve nothing by “disrupting the western nuclear family structure”. The white and black elite in the US already stereotype poor black people and then enforce those stereotypes on them in their lives: thug life, drugs, gangs, family disintegration, moral degeneracy… and BLM is doing the same, promoting all this, but they do it under the pretext of “liberation”, because BLM ARE from the elite, by the elite and for the elite, and if you think otherwise then – sorry to break it to you – you’re brainwashed by the elite.
