Contrary to what you will learn from CNN and The New York Times, not all black Americans are on board with the Black Lives Matter movement. Indeed, many of them see right through the group’s deranged philosophy and mark it as the socialist grift that it really is. Among them is Niger Innis of the Congress of Racial Equality who appeared on Laura Ingraham’s show this week to blast the group for having an agenda that will mean nothing but destruction for black America.
“They take their instructions, their guidance from the Marxist playbook,” Innis said of the group. “Look, I’m going to tell some hard truths that people aren’t going to want to hear.
“The BLM movement, Black Lives Matter movement, was founded by Alicia Garza and a number of other co-founders that were promoting a hard Marxist and LGBT agenda,” Innis continued. “Look, I don’t have a problem with people exercising their First Amendment rights. You have the right to organize, you have the right to protest, you have the right to come up with an agenda. But I’ll be goddamned if you use the suffering and misery of black Americans and our legacy to the United States of America as your shield and use us as cannon fodder when your agenda really has not a damn thing to do with saving black lives.”
Innis said that he could understand the outrage felt by many protesters who find the death of George Floyd unacceptable, but he insisted that their rage is “misguided.” He said that, due to ignorance, they are lending support to an organization that wants to tear down everything great about Western society.
“If you look at their agenda, defunding the police, that would put black lives in danger,” Innis warned. “But it’s even more than that, Laura. They have, as a part of their platform, on their own website that we want to disrupt — disrupt! — the Western-prescribed nuclear family. They want to overthrow capitalism. They want to overthrow Western civilization, and they see America as the biggest clear and present danger to fulfilling that agenda, and they are using black people to do it.”
Will it make any difference that a prominent black conservative is coming out against Black Lives Matter? Of course not. His race gives him shelter to say things that white observers cannot, but that’s about it. To the left, you’re only as “black” as your political opinions. Stray too far off the reservation – Kanye, Clarence Thomas, Shelby Steele, etc. – and you might as well dye your skin white. You’ve been co-opted by the oppressors. You probably need medication and you definitely need re-education.
Oh well. BLM and their allies can make it very uncomfortable for dissenters to speak out against them, but they can’t silence them.
Well, at least not yet.
