Daniel Greenfield, Unsurprising. BLM has always been a racist black supremacist project.
It’s a successor to Marxist black supremacist movements in the 70s that were explicitly anti-American and anti-Israel. It was only a matter of saying it so clearly that anyone, no matter how obvious, could understand.
Cullors wasn’t exactly subtle in her public statements.
“This is an apartheid state. We can’t deny that, and if we do deny it we are a part of the Zionist violence,” Cullors told Ebony Magazine.
But in April 2015 BLM’s Patrisse Cullors was at a Harvard Law School panel. The “Globalizing Ferguson: Racialized Policing and International Resistance” panel, where she said, “Palestine is our generation’s South Africa, and if we don’t step up boldly and courageously to end the imperialist project that’s called Israel, we’re doomed.”
Not a surprise. But it’s certainly too obvious to spin as anything else.
BLM’s backers and allies have always spanned the Marxist-Islamist spectrum. And this fits perfectly with that agenda and the new ideas of intersectionality. It’s also an inescapable warning that support for Black Lives Matter also means the destruction of Israel and America.
It ought to go without saying that America, in the eyes of BLM, is very much an imperialist, colonial settler project.
The Post Millennial theorizes that the connection between BLM and pro-terrorist groups explains what we’ve been seeing.
What we’re left with is the context needed to explain how pro-Palestinian groups were able to quickly organize on the streets of New York’s Diamond District and the city of Seattle in 2021.
While I’m sure BLM had an impact on the culture of lawless and violence that we saw in those viral videos, the organizing and training more likely went the other way with pro-terrorist activists showing BLMers the ropes. It’s one reason why BLM personnel trekked out to learn about organizing from the terrorist territories.
