White Democratic presidential candidates have been shouted down and even forced from their campaign stages by members of a radical group named Black Lives Matter (BLM). It has happened on at least two occasions, to former Maryland Governor Martin J. O’Malley and Senator Bernie Sanders (Vt.).
On July 18 at a Netroots Nation rally in Phoenix, O’Malley stood passively by as crazed BLM activists chanted, “Burn everything down,” “Rise the fuck up,” and “That’s the only way motherfuckers [white people] like you listen.” Later, after O’Malley told the crowd that “all lives matter” not just black ones, he feebly apologized for being “insensitive.”
Weeks later, on August 8 at Seattle’s Westlake Park, two women from BLM—Marissa Johnson and Mara Willaford—hijacked the stage from Sanders. While doing so, the duo referred to attendees at Sanders’s rally as “white supremacist liberals.”
Three days later, Republican presidential front-runner Donald J. Trump showed his disdain for Sanders’s mousiness. Trump said of the black rabble-rousers who pushed Sanders aside: “That will never happen to me. I don’t know if I’ll do the fighting myself or other people will, but that was a disgrace. I felt badly for [Sanders], but it showed that he was weak. But believe me, that’s not gonna happen to Trump.”
Trump also commented on O’Malley’s weakness.
“He apologized like a little baby, like a disgusting, little, weak, pathetic baby, and that’s the problem with our country,” Trump told host Jeanine Pirro on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends” Friday morning.
Because Democrats have been kowtowing to such socialist and communist ploys for decades, they tolerate BLM’s merging of Black Panther racism, Saul Alinsky gutter tactics, Marxist politics and radical feminism. It’s not surprising that BLM’s three primary founders—Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi—have ties to the Weather Underground Organization, Black Liberation Army and other violent communist revolutionaries. In their eyes, they see all whites as “black people’s common enemy.” They also advocate the targeting of law enforcement officers and the complete disbanding of police departments, while urging “freedom from mass incarceration” for those they deem political prisoners.
To get a clearer view into this mindset, on August 12, AMERICAN FREE PRESS spoke with Stephen Biko [AFP has not verified if this is his real name], a member of the Universal Negro Improvement Association. Biko also hosts a radio show called “Problem Solvers Unlimited” and belongs to the Collective Black People Movement.
When asked why racial tensions have escalated since Barack Hussein Obama took office, Biko opined: “Blacks are suffering from PTSD—post-traumatic slavery disorder. It’s been passed down from generation to generation for 400 years, and is now transferred right into the DNA of our offspring.”
Biko’s sense of perpetual victimhood became apparent in his further explanations.
“White people can’t wrap their minds around the thought that the system they created—one of oppression, exploitation and injustice—is doing exactly what they created it to do,” he said. “The Founding Fathers broke every law imaginable. They engaged in organized terrorism, and blacks are going through the same things today as they did during slave days.”
Despite his completely ludicrous rationale, Biko suggested a remedy that many whites may champion.
Biko told AFP: “We need a revised and amended 2015 Barack Obama Emancipation Proclamation that would give blacks their own territory in the southeast U.S. We need to be separate to begin the healing process and that includes policing ourselves.”
Unfortunately, Biko, BLM and others who constantly blame whites for all their problems don’t realize that, when left to their own devices, blacks create violent, drug-ridden hellholes like in Chicago, Baltimore, Ferguson, South Central Los Angeles, Detroit and Harlem.
As the old adage reminds us, “Be careful what you wish for.”
