Protesters - what's next?
« on: August 24, 2017, 06:20:07 AM »
Many operatives from Black Lives Matter had previously participated in Occupy Wall Street. They described emerging from the failure of that movement disheartened, as it failed to achieve lasting societal change.

At the very least, they had sought some kind of legislative signal that their efforts had not been in vain.

As these professional activists refocused their energies toward a new cause—Black Lives Matter—they told us how they hoped that, this time, they would be able to seize tangible victories. The four motivating operatives values we identified were “pride,” “confidence,” “excitement,” and “purpose.”

This hunger for tangible victories is exactly the context within which we must evaluate the current focus on statues: a “concrete” demonstration of the power of their movement, most importantly to its own adherents. This is precisely what Occupy had failed, psychologically, to provide to them.

While some on the outside may criticize the destruction of statues as being utterly useless for the black community, which Black Lives Matter purports to serve, our research shows that it is best to understand this approach as an internally focused strategy to energize supporters.

Interesting read.   The ultimate goal of the operatives is to take down the American system.
Watch the video, please.   You might recognize a few faces from past protests, guys with decades of political protests under their belts.

Allies of Black Lives Matter, who exhibit a keen desire to signal that they are speaking out against injustice, are now being met with resistance from others within Black Lives Matter, who wish to downplay or remove their presence altogether.
"Allies of BLM" are whites.  In reality, they are Communist operatives.

I suspect that a sizable majority of white people outraged by the events in Charlottesville are not fighting for black liberation; they are expressing discontent with explicit white supremacy. They do not wish to overthrow white supremacy in its totality; they seek to keep it wrapped up in euphemisms. White supremacy ‘#IsNot(Them)’—except it is.

I am even more suspicious of white people who do put their bodies on the line because they do so in a warped sense of self-interest. Many are actively involved with extensive pro-black organizing because they believe their aspirational “freedom” is attached to ours—but it’s not.

Fracturing within the movement, because the ultimate goal of the operatives - destroy America, and the average protester's desire to be heard are really opposites.   Destroy America and lose the 1st Amendment, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, etc.

This is a curious bunch of misfits.  It is little wonder the ultimate goal is Communism, making them useful idiots, for a system the protesters wouldn't want at all.

I find it funny that white Liberals are marching for a group that hates white people.
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.
