The so-called “Black Lives Matter” group doesn’t really care about black lives.
The group has received millions from left-wing big moneymen, and the “movement” is being used to exploit black identity politics and grievances to set up yet another front group for the left.
The supposed mission of Black Lives Matter (BLM) is denouncing police brutality.
But last year, BLM leaders met with the left-wing group Democracy Alliance, and suddenly, the Black Lives Matter agenda has expanded to include a whole lot more.
The Democracy Alliance (DA) was created in 2005 by a handful of major donors, including billionaire financier George Soros and Taco Bell heir Rob McKay, to build a permanent infrastructure to advance liberal ideas and causes. Donors are required to donate at least $200,000 a year to recommended groups, and their combined donations to those groups total more than $500 million.
DA President Gara LaMarche said her goal at the Democracy Alliance is to persuade donors to “use some of the money that’s going into the presidential races for grassroots organizing and movement building.”
It has been reported that the Ford Foundation is now behind the push to raise $100 million for the Black Lives Matter group.
What started out as a grassroots movement has officially been bought and paid for.
There is no rhyme or reason to the protests that Black Lives Matter is involved in. The group has recently launched protests against global warming, the Jewish State, and charter schools, and has marched in favor of gay rights.
None of these issues affect the black population negatively, and they certainly have nothing to do with police brutality, where the original BLM was focused.
One Black Lives Matter leader in the city of St. Paul, Minnesota who had previously been deeply involved in protests over police shootings announced that he was stepping down because of the national group’s call for a moratorium on charter schools.
He stated that the group had been co-opted, stating, “The movement’s been hijacked.”
Of course, Hillary Clinton jumped on the bandwagon, taking advantage of the Black Lives Matter group’s success in causing division, and has become increasingly radical on the issue of race relations.
At a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio, Clinton doused the fire with gas by talking about how “racist cops” are to blame:
“The deaths of Alton and Philando drove home how urgently we need to make reforms to policing and criminal justice… how we cannot rest until we root out implicit bias and stop the killings of African-Americans.”
Then to add more fuel to the fire, she added:
“Let’s admit it, there is clear evidence that African-Americans are disproportionately killed in police incidents compared to any other group.”
Clinton conveniently left out the fact that blacks commit more violent crimes, and that whites are much more likely to be killed by police.
It all sounds so sincere, until it is discovered that the Black Lives Matter movement is nothing but a sham.
What started out as a small group of people that seemed truly concerned about what they thought was undue brutality against blacks has turned into another way for Hillary Clinton and her friends to benefit from the hate that has permeated the country.
It appears that Clinton will stop at nothing to trick the electorate into thinking she cares.
