ROFL. Why wouldn't I comment?
So you found a video of a black dude who just figured out that politics exists. Phenomenal. Wake me when he says something new and interesting. I bet he doesn't even know that you're using his video, RIGHT NOW, to support your own agenda. And instead of not being for either party, you are supporting the right.
He feels "infiltrated" by the left because he was part of a movement that he believed was a-political. That's naive. Politics is how you change the system. I co-founded Black Wall Street 2.0. I've been on organizing calls. I've heard people call in and try to instigate a more emotional and possibly even violent approach so I have first hand experience with this. You don't.
You say BLM and ANTIFA have been exposed as terrorists. By who? The guy you say was a former member and Ferguson organizer doesn't ever say HE was a terrorist but rather that they were infiltrated. I didn't believe in marching so BWS2.0 stayed away from that and tried to remain as apolitical as possible. Our platform was solely about economics and creating our own economy to empower our black community. A free and independent black economy. That doesn't involve asking any party for help, for votes, for whatever.
Any group is likely to have spies, either members of law enforcement looking for radical members to track them to other radical members in order to prevent possible future terrorism threats. And any group is likely to try to be infiltrated by members of the opposite faction, looking for intel and ways to disrupt the group from within. Black KKKlansman was based on a true story. The movie shows a black man being sent in to investigate Stokely Carmichael (Kwame Ture) and the black power movement. Black groups are still looked at as a threat by the Feds even though if they had ever uncovered any real plots of terrorism whole organizations would have gotten shut down. For historical reference, read up on what really happened with the original Black Panther Party.
So if you are organizing and you don't think you're going to attract members of law enforcement, you're naive-and maybe mildly retarded. Most of us know this happens because we study our own history; especially in regards to clashes with the government. These groups are not interested in terrorism but rather self-defense. Some are simply more militant in image, than others.
This is part of the reason why organizing on a certain level should be left up to those in the community with more knowledge and wisdom and know what to look out for. That doesn't mean your organization has been taken over by the infiltrator(s). We always assumed infiltration was inevitable and distributed power in such a way that made it impossible for such people to takeover. And this is such a known quantity that almost every black site, forum, group, etc. is always on the lookout for what we call "agents". Again, if an organizer is ignorant to this then they really don't know what they're doing. And because of that ignorance this obviously young man is himself unwittingly acting as an agent by attacking one of our organizations, and he's doing so, by buying into propaganda that such "agents" try to use to disrupt our organizations and groups. This propaganda always agrees with a white republican / white nationalist agenda. ALWAYS. This is why I can talk about Alex Jones so much because almost every conspiracy can be linked back to him as the godfather of the conspiracy theory industry in the United States.
People trust conspiracy theories when they lose trust and faith in the government. Young black men are typically more susceptible to these attacks and disinformation campaigns because our dealings with the police teach us that the government cannot be trusted; that they don't care about us. So that bad relationship with the police is exploited by foreign actors and agitators to trick our youth into being against their own government. WHY?
SO THAT THEY WILL NOT PARTICIPATE IN ELECTIONS.
You will NEVER trick me to give up a right that my ancestors suffered and died for. Sorry, but I'm way too intelligent for that. That's why I don't fall for silly poorly thought out conspiracy theories. George Sorros... No matter how many times you say the man's name if he could be tied financially to any crime the first people to investigate him would be republicans. They haven't? No? Then how do your precious conspiracy theorists have any evidence to claim he's funding people? Someone's lying. Either evidence exists or it doesn't. You cannot speculate about a person because of their wealth and stances and claim they're a mastermind when they would need a whole organization to distribute the money. And who would make contact with who? Does he have a terrorist hotline you can call? If so, where is that phone number advertised? Do you think BLM operates on the dark web? Most of these groups can barely construct a simple web site.
VOTING RIGHTS for Black people should be like how Southern whites view the second amendment.
It is ONLY conspiracy theories and propaganda that attack that. And that is the conspiracy. Getting black people to stop voting... THAT is the conspiracy. And when you see Republicans redrawing voting district maps and suppressing votes and hiring people to go out and trick people with fake ballots... THAT is what it's all about. They don't want us to vote. Instead of convincing us that we should vote for them because they want to help us, they have NO INTENTION of helping us, they have no black agenda other than locking us up and taking our money via the criminal justice system, so they're not interested in even the pretense of acting like our friends. They just attack our vote, straight up. And because they can't do enough of that to guarantee victory they create propaganda and conspiracy theories.
ANTIFA? ANTIFA isn't organized. There is no head. There is no governing body. When they first appeared they first appeared only in response to what they determined to be fascists. And when I first saw them I was impressed because I too saw the government leaning more towards fascism during the rise of Trump. If you don't see it that's okay. You don't know what to look for. And if you do know what to look for then you're probably just another "Agent", who we FULLY EXPECT, to be on a site like this because of the demographic that you know it serves. But I don't ask you who you work for. I don't normally imply you're a Russian troll. You know why? It's not because I don't think that about you. It's because I choose to battle your ideas, not who you are. I love freedom. I love democracy. These are good ideas, in SPITE... of who the founding fathers of this country were and how many slaves they personally owned. I don't have to love them personally in order to love my country because my country is full of my people and people of all races, creeds, cultures, religions, etc. It is a melting pot of ideas and people and that's what makes it better and stronger than Russia could ever be.
Russia, as a state, acts like people in the deep south who marry their cousins so much that their great grandson is an identical twin of the great great grandfather. Feel free to quote me. Here I can say that. Could I say that in Russia?
The United States, wasn't just built by whites. It was built by African Americans as well. And we're still building it. It's not perfect. That's why we have to keep building it. That's why we have to keep running for Congress. That's why I support people like Jamaal Bowman even though he's not running in my state. I contribute to his election because we need people like him, like AOC, like Rashida Tlaib, and many others; but especially the PROGRESSIVES. And yes I happily contributed to Bernie Sanders, someone who marched with us during the civil rights movement, and who has policies that would help my people. And you think I'm supposed to ignore all that, ignore all these minorities fighting to make things better, because you think, without any proof, that you can make us believe they are connected to George Sorros? GTFO.
No amount of conjecture, speculation, back seat driving, etc. is going to make me stop fighting for my civil rights, for equality, and for any programs and policies that will make life better in this country for my children. It's not about me. It's about the next generation and the next. And all I've seen from you on this site is retell story after story, lie after lie, trying to infiltrate the hearts and minds of my people with your pro-Trump propaganda, and desperately trying to stop us from voting for Democrats.
Let me say this again just in case it was missed. I didn't vote for Hillary. I voted for Jill Stein in the last election. Why did I do that? It was a protest vote against the DNC, not simply because Bernie didn't win the nomination but because they were actively pushing Hillary and ANYONE with a moderate corporate democrat agenda, over the progressive wing of the party. They did it again with Joe Biden, except without the overt cheating. They rallied support from the other candidates to defeat more progressive ideas. That's both Bernie and Warren. So no, I don't see eye to eye with the DNC. But I also knew that my state was going to for the Republican party. The DNC has to be made to understand that they cannot take our votes for granted. You have to earn our votes. At the same time, we're not stupid. We don't want 4 more years of Trump. He's a moron. He doesn't know what he's doing. He doesn't understand the limitations of a president (never did) and why those limits are good. And he's proving how bad he is at the job all the time. I knew before he got elected that he would win and that he would be a bad president. I had no idea how much worse he would be than my expectations. So yes, even though I don't like Biden I will tolerate Biden because he is better than Trump. Although, I don't like voting for the lesser of two evils, with the exception of Barack Obama, this happens every election. Show me a sane black person that doesn't feel the same way.
So I'm not here for some political purpose like you are. I mostly respond to political posts because I hate "agents" and "infiltrators" trying to attack our vote by trying to turn us against each other, against our own businesses, against our own black schools and colleges, against our own teachers and historians, against our own politicians, congressional black congress, Dr. Claude Anderson, and the list goes on and on. Most people will simply ignore you and move on because they know an agent when they see one. But I will battle your ideas because I don't care who or what you are. If your ideas are wrong/idiotic/foolish/unrighteous I will let you know. So bring it. At the end of the day I'm going to show you that you're wasting your time here. Call for backup if you wish. But you're wasting your time. You can't win.
