Boston #BlackLivesMatter Protest Statements a Hot Mess of Leftist Psycho-Sexual Babble
“We recognize that this movement has been spearheaded by Black queer women and gender-nonconforming people.”
Actually the movement was spearheaded by the heterosexual parents of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and Eric Garner who rightly or wrongly believe their sons’ deaths were unjust and demand the prosecution of those they believe responsible as well as reform of the criminal justice system. They have consistently (well, with one exception) called for peaceful protests in support of their cause.
Their cause was hijacked by the radical left and was added to the left’s toxic brew of anti-U.S., anti-Christian, anti-Israel and anti-capitalism political/cultural conditioning.
The Boston Globe published two press releases issued on Thursday by the organizers of the traffic-blocking Black Lives Matter protests that snarled morning traffic on two major Boston area highways.
The statements reveal that the left is using the Black Lives Matter movement in furtherance of their goal of fomenting a communist revolution.
The first statement explained who they were and their reasons for holding a non-Black protest:
…“We are a diverse group of LGBTQA, white, pan-Asian and [email protected] people acting in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, both locally and nationally.”
…” We are participating in this action in response to a national call for non-Black people to turn up for two central reasons. As non-Black people acting in solidarity, it is necessary to disrupt a capitalist structure that has been built on the physical and economic exploitation of Black bodies since our country’s inception. We also recognize our unique position in the struggle for economic, political, gender and racial liberation: though many of us do identify as people of color, we are able to participate in such an action with significantly lower risk of physical harm and brutalization by the State specifically because we are NOT identified as Black.”
“We maintain that the U.S. is and has always been a state founded on the exploitation, enslavement and oppression of people of color worldwide. The political and economic system we struggle under today would not exist without the centuries of exploitation of Black and brown people. It is crucial to recognize that capitalism is a system that is upheld by white supremacy. We cannot end capitalism without ending white supremacy. There is no such thing as total liberation without ending the exploitation of Black and brown bodies.”
The second press release featured statements by participants and organizers for publication:
““As non-Black women, including transgender and gender-nonconforming folks in the United States, we refuse to allow our commitment to gender justice to distract us from racial justice. We understand that gender and racial justice are intertwined,” said one of the organizers of the action.”
““As non-Black lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer people in the United States, we refuse to allow increasing acceptance of our sexuality and several marriage equality victories to end our commitment to advancing social justice. We recognize that this movement has been spearheaded by Black queer women and gender-nonconforming people.” said Monica Majewski.”
““As non-Black undocumented immigrants in the United States, we refuse to perpetuate the erroneous idea of earned citizenship. We honor the path set before us by Harriet Tubman by advancing civil and human rights for everyone regardless of legal status,” said a protester involved in the action.”
““As white people in the United States, we refuse to align ourselves with a state that carries out violence against Black people. We are taking direct action to challenge white complicity and amplify the demands for an end to the war on Black communities,” said Katie Martin Selcraig.”
““As Pan-Asian people in the United States, we refuse to perpetuate anti-Black racism. We will not allow our communities to serve as a wedge to divide us and jeopardize our struggle to end racism and achieve our collective liberation,” said Nguyen Thi Minh Thu.”
