FBI director Wray (not sure why DJT hasn't fired him) said BLM is an idea. But there are BLM folks shaking down businesses, which is extortion. Rioting and looting is not mostly peaceful. Either it is 100% peaceful or it is violent.
Decades if not centuries in the making. MSM media and its funders are public enemy number one. Cull them and the rest will crumble. Without 24/7 brain washing people are naturally conservativeBLM does not stand on its own. It is one tentacle of the octopus, so to speak. Similar to feminism, LGBT, Extinction Rebellion and the million other organizations and NGOs set up as fronts to play class / race war. Identity politics is the name of the game, and it's a means to an end.
It makes no sense to focus on the organization called BLM as a standalone unit and try to label it while ignoring all the others and the context.
Tomorrow you'll have ten other grievance organizations with another name for another cause, with the ultimate goal being the same - to create unrest and stir shit up so the globalists can gain power.
This question is so interesting.
Because if you ask lefties about the Alt-Right and Proud Boys, a lot of them say that they are evil, anti-American, terrorist organizations.
If you ask Conservatives about Antifa and BLM, they say the same exact thing, that they are evil, anti-American, terrorist organizations.
Ahh politics! You got to love it.
But only one side has been burning down entire city blocks, starting forest fires, have dozens, maybe over 100 deaths on their hands this year alone, and have committed terrorist attacks in attacking political candidates and their supporters.
"Terrorism" has a definition and only the left side fits this definition at this time. The Proud Boys are just reactionaries and the Alt-Right has been online only for 3 years straight after they were no longer allowed to give speeches on public universities (meaning they no longer have the 1A).
Not disagreeing with you, but for posterity, please post how the Proud Boys are just reactionaries.
