It's not a conspiracy theory when the founder of BLM says something out of her own mouth.

 

 

Do you even know what a Marxist is? I was going to make a reasoned reply to your comments on racism but you are just tossing out memes you picked up along the way. Come back when you are older and more knowledgeable.

Jos1969: I will just leave this here (Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video that pre-dates Trump from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are "trained Marxists")

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HgEUbSzOTZ8



From the conservative right-center group "Foundation for Economic Education"Is Black Lives Matter Marxist? No and Yes.

...These kinds of conservative criticisms of Black Lives Matter are widespread. And on one hand, they’re right: The official Black Lives Matter organization is Marxist, is anti-American in its values, and its views are rightfully alarming to anyone who believes in the Constitution, capitalism, and civil society as we know it. But in applying their reflexive response to all Black Lives Matter supporters, conservative critics are failing to see the forest for the trees.

A whopping 51 percent of the public tells pollsters they support “black lives matter.” Most of these people, I suspect, don’t even know that there is an official Black Lives Matter organization. And I’m sure hardly any of them could name Patrisse Cullors or Alicia Garza.

In answer to kingdragonfly - 

 

I suspect the public support the sentiment "black lives matter" rather than the group, who, by the way, are funded by the Thousand Currents group, of whom one of the board members is one Susan Rosenberg, a domestic terrorist who was a member of May 19th, which spent two years engaged in bombings in New York and Washington, DC in the 1980s, was convicted and jailed for 58 years but was pardoned by Bill Clinton after only serving 16 years.

 

Rosenberg spent her years on the lam plotting to kill more police officers, military personnel and American government officials. In November 1984, she and a cohort were captured in New Jersey. They had an arsenal worthy of a small army and were in the throes of plots to bomb more government buildings and slaughter more innocent people.

 

Rosenberg turned her New Jersey terrorism trial into a circus, posturing as a political prisoner. At her sentencing, she urged her supporters to continue their war against the United States. (“When we were first captured we said, we’re caught, we’re not defeated, long live the armed struggle. We’d like to take this moment to rededicate ourselves to our revolutionary principles, to our commitment to continue to fight for the defeat of U.S. imperialism.”) She expressed remorse about only one thing: she hadn’t had the courage to shoot it out with the police who’d apprehended her.

That might not matter to you. But, to me, it's obvious what BLM's ideology is. It is factual to say that Black Lives Matter is funded and run by Marxists and anarchists. I won't bother to reply again as it's obvious that people have made up their minds and it is pointless in my saying any more.

Ah, the National Review, which promotes itself as "the leading voice of the American Right". Sort of like referencing the Völkischer Beobachter on what a fine fellow Hitler was.

I don't think you will be missed here. I'm sure there are other places that welcome emotive labelling as a way to prevent serious discussion. Watch out for those terrible Marxists and anarchists under your bed as you leave.

The Washington Post - The new season of Trump’s pandemic reality show is headed for early cancellation

 

today

 


The instructions for President Trump could not have been clearer: Stick to the script. Talk about the virus. Be serious and sober. Don’t go off on tangents.

 

And for a few minutes, Trump did as he was supposed to do at Tuesday’s coronavirus briefing, his first in nearly three months. 

 

He admitted, “It will probably, unfortunately, get worse before it gets better - something I don’t like saying about things, but that’s the way it is.” 

 

He encouraged people to wear masks and maintain social distancing.

 

If only he hadn’t taken the bait when Steven Nelson of the New York Post asked him about Ghislaine Maxwell, the woman accused of aiding Jeffrey Epstein in the sexual abuse of minors.

 

I just wish her well,” Trump said.

 

You could almost hear palms being smacked against foreheads in unison throughout the West Wing. ...

 

I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach and they lived in Palm Beach,” Trump continued. “I wish her well,” he repeated.

 

Using a nationally televised briefing from the White House to offer good wishes to the accused procurer for a convicted sex criminal? 

 

The new season of Trump’s reality show is off to a shaky start. ...

I didn't want to start a thread about Kayne West, so posting this off-topic here.

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some 13 missions to rescue slaves.

Kayne's opinion: I could have done better.

Please use the quote feature to quote part of the articles or YouTube videos you link to. You'll notice other users have quoted contents for you a couple of times. The BLM thing seems to be a tangent.

Wrong Marx, he's referring to Edwin Marx, inventor of the Marx generator, used most famously in the Z Machine. I assume a Marxist is someone who builds and maintains Marx generators.

Marx generators, for when a Tesla coil just isn't enough. That one was actually built by real Marxists.
