Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is often misquoted by those who want to use the internet for 'searchable' quotes for their own gain. In 2020, the most misused quote, "riot is the language of the unheard" has been played like a broken record to condone the looting, riots and violence by protesters. The main stream media, in particular CNN's Don Lemon said that he wasn't 'judging' and his complicit silence absolutely condoned the destruction of American businesses by the handful of 'opportunists'.
Whilst Dr. King understood the nature of violence, he never condoned it. He stated that he would 'never change' his 'basic idea that non-violence is the most potent weapon available for the struggle for freedom and justice'. He further believed 'to turn to violence would be both impractical and immoral'.
"I will agree that there is a group in the Negro community advocating violence now. I happen to feel that this group represents a numerical minority. Surveys have revealed this. The vast majority of Negroes still feel that the best way to deal with the dilemma that we face in this country is through non-violent resistance, and I don't think this vocal group will be able to make a real dent in the Negro community in terms of swaying 22 million Negroes to this particular point of view. And I contend that the cry of "black power" is, at bottom, a reaction to the reluctance of white power to make the kind of changes necessary to make justice a reality for the Negro. I think that we've got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard. And, what is it that America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the economic plight of the Negro poor has worsened over the last few years". - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. CBS Reports Interview
GBM supports ALL black lives, but not the Black Lives Matter organisation, whose central theme since 2014 was 'white on black police brutality'. They ignored the more important issue plaguing black communities, that of 'black on black' crime. Identity politics, especially 'white on black' crime galvanises the masses. They have clang the same bell many times since 2014, starting with Eric Gardner, Michal Brown, Antonio Martin, among others. Some of the protests led to looting and rioting including the infamous Ferguson unrest in August 2014. However, nothing compared to the total destruction of property, livelihoods and businesses, some black-owned, in the wake of George Floyd's murder on 25th May 2020.
Black Lives Matter started with a simple yet powerful hashtag, after the acquittal of George Zimmerman for killing Trayvon Martin. Our team watched the proceedings as 'arm chair' social scientists and legal scholars and poured through the 'evidentiary' information. We concluded at the time that this was not a justifiable 'killing'. Zimmerman was a neighbourhood watch coordinator and should not have been armed. Florida's 'stand your ground law' prohibited Zimmerman from being arrested, since he 'claimed' self defence. Regardless, after the acquittal in July 2013, the black lives matter movement was born, but it wasn't until 2014 that the movement found its footing with 'police brutality' front and centre.
Black Lives Matter Global Network Inc. was incorporated in Delaware on 18th November 2016. There was some confusion as to their incorporated name. Some in the media and even Wikipedia referred to the organisation as Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc. There was also another filing with Delaware for that name on 16th October 2017. Nothing on the website header or footer suggested the actual name of the organisation, so we dug a bit further and found the organisational name mentioned under the 'News' header. In the 25th June 2020 press release, the organisation referred to themselves as Black Lives Matter Global Network ("BLM"), with no 'Foundation' reference, however, they used the word 'Foundation' for their 11th June 2020 press release. Confusing? Our investigation concluded the same on 12th June 2020. Regardless of whether 'Foundation' or not, Black Lives Matter, the 'organisation' does not hold a tax exempt status with the IRS. Calling themselves a 'nonprofit' is misleading. They raise monies through ActBlue and GoFundMe. Black Lives Matter DC seeks donations through their website which is not secure, although they placed a banner that said it was.
Black Lives Matter Global Network is not an altruistic organisation for the betterment of all black people. They cherry picked 'white on black police brutality' for their overall activist agenda. No where on their agenda or press releases have they highlighted the recent shootings in Chicago, Minneapolis or New York or the deaths of young children including Mekhi James, 3 years old who was shot inside a car, where his father was the intended target or Amaria J Jones, 13 years old shot in the neck whilst inside her home.
Black Lives Matter organisation's 'hidden agendas' include (1) abolish the police. Whilst they call to 'defund the police', what they really want is to get rid of the police departments and court systems. (2) not focused on 'black on black' crime for political reasons. BLM's mission is to galvanise the populace around 'white on black' police brutality. it sells stories, it generate funds, creates global momentum since identity politics resonate with many minority citizens, especially blacks. (3) Create a power base for the black power movement and 'black supremacy'. It's not about equality, its about domination. (4) Total destruction of patriarchy. There are no 'fathers' in the picture in their new world order. Black men who need 'father' figures to traverse the landscape of life will be absent for good. (5) Annihilate capitalism. Marx believed in worker revolt, which meant the over throw of the ruling class. For this reason, Black Lives Matter Global Network never condemned the looting, rioting or violence, whilst George Floyd's family had advocated for peaceful protests.
On 23rd December 2014, Patrisse Cullors, during an interview with Jesse Lee Peterson, was asked if she believed in 'capitalism'. She faltered and then hung up on him. When the show's producer tried to get her back on line, she denied hanging up on Peterson and said she would reschedule. She never did. Instead, she tweeted about her experience on 25th March 2015 calling the experience, 'violent and demeaning'. During the interview, Cullors recalls her mum working three jobs. She never mentioned a father. When Peterson asked if she was born out of wedlock, she divulged that she had a father who worked at General Motors (GM). On 23rd July, 2015, Cullors, on The Real News Network, divulged that she and another co-founder were 'trained Marxists'. Melina Abdullah, a leader in their Los Angeles chapter is a communist.
Propaganda and funding
Patrisse Cullors has characterised George Zimmerman as a 'light-skinned, white-passing man', although he is of Peruvian descent with African ancestry on his mum's side. He is of German decent on his father's side. Melina Abdullah a "community" organiser and leader at Black Lives Matter Global Network chapter in Los Angeles is also of German decent on her father's side. She is considered 'black' yet George Zimmerman, for political reasons is considered a 'white-passing man'. Anyone looking at Zimmerman would have doubts if he was a 'white' man.
Melina Abdullah is the co-organiser and manages the funding for Black Lives Matter Los Angeles. Since creating the crowd funding page at GoFundMe on 13th July 2018, BLM-LA has raised over $2 Million dollars. The monies raised are considered 'gifts' according to the IRS because the Los Angeles Chapter of Black Lives Matter, the organisation is not tax exempt. All monies raised through GoFundMe is also not tax deductible. BLM-LA uses the money for "materials and supplies, travel, and facilities costs related to actions, meetings, and our ongoing work". None of the monies raised is used for programmes or projects in the black communities, where such resources could be helpful.

Candace Owens 26/08/2017- WTF? Black Lives Matter Has A List of Demands for White People! FLASHBACK! Here is a clip that basically breaks down these 'demands' from 2017 in hilarious fashion! The list of demands hasn't really changed in 2020. Whether you are right, left, centre of the argument is moot.
