Opinion: BLM is a Marxist movement that encourages violence, says Rensselaer Falls resident
To the Editor:
In response to Opinion: Black versus blue lives is illusion created by Trump, says Massena woman: She states, “Blue Lives Matter groups act as if there are people who just don’t like the police and want police to be eliminated.”Observe the rhetoric and violence that attends BLM protests nationwide against police. Recently two LA Sheriff Deputies were shot in cold blood while sitting in their vehicle. One of the deputies is a mother with a six-year-old daughter. Protesters gathered outside the hospital where deputies were being treated harassed other deputies stationed outside, and attempted enter the emergency room. One of the protesters was recorded yelling “I hope they die!”
Since the BLM protest began, police have been shot, assaulted with thrown frozen water bottles, sprayed, and subject to objects thrown by protesters. A Black retired police officer, Captain David Dorn, was shot in the back of the head while responding to a burglary during a riot.
I have visited the BLM website. Nowhere do they condemn violence against police, or the looting and destruction of private and public property. When BLM states “No Justice, No Peace,” they really mean it. BLM does not want peace. Black citizens have lost lives and businesses as a result of BLM promoted riots. Why doesn’t BLM compensate Black victims who’ve suffered from riots with the millions they receive from donors?
BLM is an ideologically Marxism-based organization. It touts itself as an international organization, its goal to insert its Communist-based ideology world-wide. BLM Co-founder Patresse Cullor was a protégé of Eric Mann, the former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization.
She openly admitted to be a "trained Marxist." Historically, Marxists movements have encourage social disruption and violence. They seek to obtain power from the resulting chaos. Every communist/socialist nation founded on Marxism converted their police into oppressive agents, such as the KGB and Stasi, to actively persecute its citizens.
BLM is not the organization the Black community should support to fight racism on their behalf. It will betray them just like every Marxist movement throughout history has done to the people it claims to champion for on their behalf.
