Nobody believes America is on the verge of transforming from a constitutional republic to pure, unadulterated Marxism. The thought is as inconceivable as it is chilling. But whether deliberately or not, the organization which has spearheaded the violent uprisings in the streets and demolition derby on our public monuments has now unmasked itself not as warriors for racial justice as their name proclaims, but as Marxists to the core – the literal antithesis of all things American.
Indeed, as violence rips the seams on the physical, social, and spiritual fabric of so many of the nation’s great urban centers, the darkest fears of people still proud of the American project have been confirmed in two frightening statements over the last several days, one asserting the political philosophy of Black Lives Matter and the other its ultimate intentions. Male and female co-founders of the organization have separately put the lie to the gullible white liberals’ assertion that the BLM/Antifa/anarchist radicals disrupting life across the nation are pursuing what their name transparently states, racial justice.
They are not, unless one defines such justice as a complete teardown of the existing order. What they really want is the dissolution of police, free elections, free speech, and every other fundamental constitutional protection – and ultimately, violent overthrow of the America we know.
If you are prone to dismiss this as an exaggeration, consider first the statement about the core beliefs of BLM by co-founder Patrisse Cullors: “… we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and (BLM co-founder Alicia Garza) in particular are trained organizers … We are trained Marxists.”
There is no walking back a statement like that. Not that she would anyway. It’s not like the Marxists and their anarchistic and nihilistic brothers and sisters tearing apart our inner cities are trying to hide their totalitarian intentions.
But from that organizational ideology, we turn to the basic strategy for implementing it – or, more precisely, enforcing it – from another BLM co-founder and chair of the organization’s New York branch, Hawk Newsome: “If this country doesn’t give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it.”
And if you have read up to this point, you know what the replacement would be. Newsome tried to generate more intrigue with his threat when he added, “I could be speaking figuratively. I could be speaking literally.”
Either way, is there any ambiguity in either their stated ideology or their chosen method for implementing it? You need look no further than the strewn wreckage of lives, communities, and businesses in the violent reign of terror following the George Floyd episode, accomplished with the indispensable aid and comfort of useful, self-loathing white idiots with their heads in the clouds and their hearts bent on mindless destruction of their own culture.
And yet, these naked truths about the people fomenting a race war in the land are conveniently ignored by an elite media, which have traded truth for open advocacy of anything marked with the stamp of progressive. They essentially advance a narrative that Donald Trump is a greater threat to the country than trained Marxists advancing on one target after another, unchecked by Democrat leaders, fomenting civil war in the streets.
In days gone by, this eruption might be discounted as a genuine threat to the republic, an uprising sure to run out of steam with the inevitable entrance of law enforcement. But incredibly, despite no resistance from elected Democrats in the midst of this full-scale cultural revolution going on all around us, the polls suggest the voters are favoring the man at the top of the leftist totem pole, Joe Biden – and by a commanding margin.
More importantly, considering the former vice president’s cognitive decline combined with his demonstrable willingness to bow to the demands of the hard left, his running mate, likely a progressive woman, would be almost certain to wield more power than any vice president in history. On this the left is counting.
Whether this seeming conundrum in public opinion – voters essentially endorsing open, unencumbered rebellion in the streets – is to be dismissed as irrelevant with miles to go before we sleep and this election is mercifully placed in the history books, the striking ignorance among voting Americans about the true intentions of this supposed racial justice movement, undergirded by a media which has sold its soul, is frightening of its own accord.
Hello, wake-up call. These people are not about racial justice. They are totalitarians who hate America and are bent on destroying every freedom associated with it. A Marxist America will turn us into a hellhole. You will become a prisoner in your own home.
Think this is hyperbole? Consider the mind-bending trail of death and destruction in Marxist and communist regimes past and present (Marxism is considered a political philosophy, communism the accompanying political system). Most have now thankfully been banished to the ash heap of history following the implosion of the Soviet Union and liberation of the enslaved nations of Eastern Europe. Only China, North Korea, Vietnam, Laos, and Cuba remain as Marxist-Leninist/Communist states.
An accurate estimate of the death toll under communism is impossible, but a reliable number from experts is over 100,000,000. Over one hundred million. The emblems of dehumanization are sickening to revisit: forced labor, gulags, starvation wages, empty shelves, endemic poverty, secret police everywhere, no dissent permitted, no exit possible. This is the unvarnished truth of a century of Marxist tyranny.
And this is what the co-founders of Black Lives Matter have now established as their goal for America, a governance of supposed white supremacy replaced by the iron rule of Marxist militants. Voters watch the strewn wreckage of lives, communities, and businesses nonchalantly demolished by these race warriors with the aid and comfort of Antifa anarchists, self-hating white nihilists, and the tacit if not explicit support of the Democratic Party and its progressive base and sycophantic media. Do they yet have any idea what is in store for them if these people are given the power to rule?
