Black Lives Matter’s Jewish Problem Is Also a Black Problem

On Aug. 1, the Black Lives Matter coalition (BLM) of groups and partners published a platform of objectives and demands ostensibly constructed to correct heavy-handed policing, educational negligence, and economic inadequacy in black communities.

That platform did no such thing.

Instead, organizers offered up a hodgepodge of half-baked ideas in the service of creating a new world order, one in which defunding police, releasing all political prisoners from jail, and redistributing of land are imperative.

Moreover, apparently believing that societal reforms in America’s inner cities are somehow related to the Arab-Israeli conflict, BLM included a section on Israel in its list of demands. With trite talking points, the group called for a divestment from the Jewish state as it is allegedly “complicit in the genocide against the Palestinian people.”

    … releasing all political prisoners from jail …
    It’s easy to decide which to release. All the prisoners that are black, or self-identify as black, are political prisoners.

    Being dumb would seem to be part of the problem too.

    I’d offer BLM one of two choices:

    1. A one-way plane ticket to Liberia.
    2. Nothing.

    I’d encourage them to choose 1.

        I’m sure Doe would have gladly given a testicle or two to be Stateside right about then.

          I think “Stuck in the Middle with You” by Stealer’s Wheel would’ve been quite fitting music for Doe’s execution…

    Note to my fellow Jews: next time you try to help a group of people to win freedom, take a good look and listen. Perhaps it is not worth to put your lives on the line/ Perhaps the whole concept of tikkun olam needs a bit of tweaking?

    • Yea that nuttiness has got to stop.

      Which group of people did the Jews help to win freedom?

        for starters (in addition to being always involved in any civil rights movement):
        The American Jewish Committee, the American Jewish Congress, and the Anti-Defamation League
        were central to the campaign against racial prejudice. Jews made
        substantial financial contributions to many civil rights organizations,
        including the NAACP, the Urban League, the Congress of Racial Equality, and the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee.
        About 50 percent of the civil rights attorneys in the South during the
        1960s were Jews, as were over 50 percent of the Whites who went to
        Mississippi in 1964 to challenge Jim Crow Laws.[4]

    I think it’s time to cede illinious and michigan to BLM. Wall those areas off and let them build their utopia. and in 2 or 3 generations when they have killed each other off then we can reconolize the waste land.

      Canada would have to employ the army to protect the trucking routes but apart from that I’m all for it. At least they’d get war zone experience without the major travel expenses.

    The trudeau govt is spending 50+ million dollars to figure out why native women who drink to blindness, hitchhike on deserted remote highways, stand around dark street corners to get picked up by strangers for sex, are being killed in numbers wildly disproportionate to their % of the population. Is this so hard to figure out? Just as negroes in the USA will not address the causes for their incarceration and death rates, the native community in Canada can not address the cause of the deaths of their women. Dysfunctional families breed dysfunctional people period.

    Any of these movements can turn into the Khmer Rouge in a second. We are not the civilized society we once were. Plan accordingly.

    Witness the offspring of the New Black Panther group mating with the retards of Occupy.

    Some genocide. The Palestinian population is growing year by year. I guess Israel isn’t as good at killing Palestinians as Black Lives Matter gives them credit for.
