The Real Agenda Behind Black Lives Matter - part 2
by Gerald Flurry
Liberals in academia and in the judiciary have long fought legal battles to undermine the U.S. Constitution. Black activists are threatening to join the fight, but with real bullets.......
WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON HERE? Is it OK for some of our top leaders—including the president—to support Black Lives Matter?
Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders have both come out with strong verbal support for the Black Lives Matter movement. During a speech he gave at Liberty University, Senator Sanders even went so far as to claim that America was founded “on racist principles.” Many Black Lives Matter activists would agree with Senator Sanders on this point.
Alicia Garza was paraphrased during a February 18 event at Mizzou University as saying, “The goal of the Constitution was to make an agreement between factions known as states, which were built on the backs of black slaves.” She described constitutionalism as racist, saying: “The people vowing to protect the Constitution are vowing TO PROTECT WHITE SUPREMACY AND GENOCIDE.”
That is a satanic lie! The truth is that America’s Constitution has given more freedom to more people than any other government charter in history! It was the system this document built that allowed the United States to become one of the first societies in history to completely abolish slavery. The U.S. Constitution is a noble document that has inspired and enabled so many to attain accomplishments that any other system anywhere else in the world would have denied them!
These comments from leaders of the Democratic Party and the Black Lives Matter movement amount to a contemptible attack on the U.S. Constitution—the supreme law of the land! Maybe they are only saying such things to get votes. Regardless of the motive, however, such vile statements are stirring up a lot of anger and bitterness against the system of government established by America’s framers.
Attack on the Constitution
Blake Simons, a University of California–Berkeley student and Black Lives Matter activist, wrote a chilling article on November 4 peddling the same lies.
“Our Black Lives Matter protests have stormed the country, yet cops continue to kill us daily, and the judicial system continues to justify our deaths with acquittals, non-indictments and light sentences—all in the name of upholding the Constitution,” he wrote for the Afrikan Black Coalition group.
How is the Constitution even relevant in the discussion about racism within law enforcement?
Maybe, in the minds of these activists, the founders’ determination to keep law enforcement on the local level is the issue. The Founding Fathers wanted to prevent the federal government from having centralized policing authority in order to curb potential abuses of power. Today, activist critics claim that local law enforcement is fundamentally racist, and that the solution is federal intervention. There is no evidence to support this criticism—and no evidence that federal policing would solve anything. It really amounts to a FEDERAL POWER GRAB!
So what is this activist’s problem with the Constitution? He explained: “I have come to realize that THE CONSTITUTION IS THE ROOT OF VIRTUALLY ALL OUR PROBLEMS IN AMERICA” (emphasis mine throughout).
“In order to understand the injustices against black folks in United States, we must look back to its foundation,” Simons continued. “The U.S. is a
country that was founded on slavery, genocide, rape and white male patriarchy. The colonizers that we condemn for enslaving Afrikans sic
and murdering indigenous peoples are the same people that produced and upheld the document we use to govern our nation to this day. Our bloodshed is rooted in this nation’s founding document, the Constitution. A body cannot be separated from its head and remain living. The Constitution and all the evil that it allows to be perpetuated are the head of White America, or more so corrupt America. Racist America. If you separate the head, the racism will die.”
Where is this kind of thinking leading? This question is especially concerning when you consider the attacks on the Constitution in recent years—along with divisive and racist rhetoric—coming from some of THE HIGHEST LEADERS IN THE LAND!
The authors of the Constitution, wrote Simons, “owned black people as slaves and participated in calculated genocidal tactics against the black race. … A constitution written by only white men will never serve the interests of black people. The Constitution was written for the ruling class of white men which constructed whiteness to be more valuable than any other race. When we discuss institutional racism, it is essential that we realize THE CONSTITUTION CREATED IT.”
The reality is almost precisely the opposite! It was initially a hypocritical failure to apply the central principles of America’s founding documents that enabled slavery to exist. It was the language of the Declaration of Independence and the legal structures of the Constitution that helped undo the injustices of slavery. Abraham Lincoln begrudgingly tolerated slavery while it was legal in the Southern states, until he was able to invoke Article V of the Constitution to emancipate slaves and make them full citizens of the United States!
Black Panther Constitution
Toward the end of his article, Simons revealed his TRUE AGENDA in attacking the U.S. Constitution.
He quoted the Declaration of Independence, a document written by some of the same men who authored the Constitution: “Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
“Do we not have the right to abolish the laws that oppress us?” Simons asked. “It is time to claim the Declaration of Independence and apply it to our struggle as colonized black people in America. The United States has declared war against us; it is time we demand a new constitution or TELL AMERICA THAT SHE WILL GET THE BULLET.”
This man is not content that the United States is led by an African-American president, and that African-Americans hold so many important leadership positions.
This is the kind of toxic thinking coming from the Black Lives Matter movement that is being endorsed by President Obama. The president promised to bring us together. He has done the exact opposite!
JUST WHAT IS THE PRESIDENT’S AGENDA? MOST PEOPLE ARE TOO DECEIVED OR TOO COWARDLY TO ANSWER THAT QUESTION!
These are the kinds of attitudes and problems that are bringing this country to its death!
