Following the self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman in 2013, three vicious Marxists formed a seething pot of revolutionary extremism called Black Lives Matter (BLM). They are Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, and Opal Tometi.
Garza genuflects at the memory of Assata Shakur, a member of the Black Panther Party and the Black Liberation Army and the murderer in 1973 of New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster:
When I use Assata’s powerful demand on my organizing work, I always begin by sharing where it comes from, sharing about Assata’s significance to the Black Liberation Movement, what its political purpose and message is, and why it’s important in our context.
Garza also worships at the memory of Angela Davis and Ella Baker, both with ties to the Communist Party USA.
Cullors’ efforts are more focused on dismembering local police departments, leaving the way open for a national police force. She views the purpose of BLM as “reducing the law-enforcement budgets” of local police departments while forcing other departments to be “disbanded or abolished” altogether. She’s the one who first called the Baltimore riots instigated by her group as “Black Spring,” which “is really about talking about a national uprising.”
Tometi’s focus is on immigration and especially any attempts by legitimate authorities to limit it. Since January 2011 she has been a national organizer for Black Alliance for Just Immigration, a George-Soros-funded group that strives to promote “immigrant rights and racial justice,” especially for illegals. She also claims that New York “allows law enforcement to kill Black people at nearly the same rate as Jim Crow lynchings,” and that New York City’s “racially biased” criminal justice system imposes horrific injustices on blacks, especially as most enforcement by that system is directed to criminals who are largely black.
The group accuses America of seeping with “virulent anti-Black racism [that] permeates our society” and maintains that the country’s “corrupt democracy” was “built on indigenous genocide and chattel slavery” and “continues to thrive on the brutal exploitation of people of color.”
The group claims that “structural oppression” routinely “de-humanizes” blacks and “deprives [them] of their basic human rights and dignity.” Further, such rampant racism results in “extrajudicial killings [of blacks] by police and vigilantes” and consequently, says BLM, black Americans are “collectively” subjected to “inhumane conditions” in a “white supremacist system.”
This provides the group with the self-asserted right to call for attacks on police. When it organized protestors to disrupt the Democrat Party’s Netroots National conference in Phoenix in July, it chanted the following vile and obscene song (caution advised):
If I die in police custody, don’t believe the hype. I was murdered!
Protect my family! Indict the system! Shut that sh*t down!
If I die in police custody, avenge my death!
By any means necessary!
If I die in police custody, burn everything down!
No building is worth more than my life!
And that’s the only way motherf***ers like you listen!
If I die in police custody, make sure I’m the last person to die in police custody.
By any means necessary!
If I die in police custody, do not hold a moment of silence for me!
Rise the f*** up!
Because your silence is killing us!”
In December, 2014 three regional police unions – in Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose – tried to initiate “constructive dialogue that [would] call for a common sense approach to [these] very complex issues,” BLM turned the overtures down flat. They don’t want to negotiate with the white power structure. They want to destroy it.
It’s no wonder, then, that criminals like Shannon Miles and Ismaalyl Brinsley took that invitation to heart and attacked innocent uniformed police officers for that single reason only: they were police officers. That they were white, so much the better. That the murders got national attention, even better.
Following his investigation of a routine automobile accident Friday night, August 28, Harris County Sheriff’s Deputy Darren Goforth pulled his police cruiser into a Chevron station on the outskirts of Houston, Texas and began filling it up. Shannon J. Miles, a black with a long criminal record, approached Goforth from behind and shot him in the head. Goforth pitched forward onto the pavement and Miles straddled his body, pumping three more bullets into his back.
Goforth died at the scene. Miles was tracked by authorities and arrested and charged with capital murder early Saturday morning.
Last December Brinsley murdered two police officers while they were sitting in the squad car. Brinsley, like Miles, had a criminal record dating back years, for carrying a concealed weapon, for shoplifting, for criminal trespass, for criminal property damage, and for illegally discharging a firearm.
While the investigation into Miles’ motivations behind the murder of Goforth are continuing, Brinsley (who killed himself as police were closing in) left behind plenty of evidence to show how BLM had influenced his thinking and his actions. On his Instagram page before murdered the two officers, Brinsley wrote:
I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours … let’s take 2 of theirs.
This may be my final post.
The link between BLM and Miles may be tenuous to Goforth’s boss, Sheriff Ron Hickman, but he was close:
I think that’s something that we have to keep an eye on. The general climate of that kind of rhetoric can be influential on people to do things like this. We’re still searching to find out if that’s actually a motive….
This rhetoric has gotten out of control. We’ve heard that black lives matter. All lives matter. Well, cops’ lives matter too. So why don’t we just drop the qualifier and just say: lives matter.
No, they don’t. Lives are expendable to the radical Marxist revolutionaries who have another entirely malignant agenda in mind: creating havoc for local police forces, adding pressure to bring in the feds to take over. So far, that strategy has been getting ugly results. In their attempts to placate the radicals, police departments have been backing off enforcement of so-called “window-breaking” crimes, with the predictable results summarized at DiscoverTheNetworks.com:
Through the first five months of 2015 in New York, the incidence of murder was 20% higher than for the same period a year earlier, and shooting incidents were up 9%.
During the three months that followed August 2014 (when Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson, Missouri), homicides in nearby in St. Louis city rose 47%, and robberies in St. Louis County increased by 82%.
After the protests and riots over the April 12, 2015 death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, shootings in that city increased by more than 60% compared to the same period a year earlier. In May 2015, Baltimore recorded 43 murders – the most in any month since August 1972.
From January to mid-May of 2015 in Milwaukee, homicides were up 180% compared to the same period in 2014.
From January through March of 2015 in Houston, murders were up nearly 100% compared to the same period in 2014.
From January 1 through May 24, 2015 in Chicago, shootings were up 25% and homicides were up 18% compared to the same period in 2014.
From January through May of 2015 in Los Angeles, shootings were up 23% and other violent crime was up 25% compared to the same period in 2014.
Thanks to BLM and its enablers, the communist aim of neutralizing support for local police and replacing them with a national police force is slowly being realized. The murders in New York and Houston are just skirmishes in that major war being fought across the land.
