The Morning Report - 8/3/20

blmfu.jpg

Good morning, kids. Start of a new week and as the great political philosopher Eric Hoffer once said, "Every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket." And so it goes with Black Lives Matter, or in reality Burn Loot Murder, though it was never a great cause but merely wearing the gutted skin suit of civil rights, if even that.

A rather alarming situation is developing in Louisville, Kentucky, in which local businesses are allegedly being issued demands from Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists and told that if they don't meet the demands, their business might be "f*cked with."

The demands are onerous, invasive, and ludicrous. They include everything from hiring quotas to training mandates to displaying a letter supporting reparations for black people to -- perhaps most outrageous of all -- paying a "recurring monthly donation of 1.5% of net sales to a local Black nonprofit or organization..."

How do you say "jizzya" in Jive? While far too many corporations and businesses from Wall Street to Main Street USA are taking a knee and kissing the fetid rectal orifices of these terrorists - either because they have been brainwashed since kindergarten to believe the blood libel of America as irredeemably racist and illegitimate, or because they don't want to have their windows smashed, rhetorically or otherwise - some people are responding with a resounding "get fucked."

Fernando Martinez, a partner of the Ole Restaurant Group, was one of dozens of business owners in the downtown Louisville district who recently received a letter from protesters laying out demands that aim to improve diversity in the area, which is known for its locally-owned shops and restaurants.

Martinez has publicly denounced the demands on Facebook, calling them "mafia tactics" used to intimidate business owners. And on Thursday, a small group of protesters confronted him outside his newest restaurant, La Bodeguita de Mima, on East Market Street.

"There comes a time in life that you have to make a stand and you have to really prove your convictions and what you believe in," Martinez wrote in his Facebook post. "...All good people need to denounce this. How can you justified (sic) injustice with more injustice?"...

Poor Mr. Martinez. He just doesn't understand that what's being inflicted on him is not injustice. He needs to understand the leftist mindset that dictates our speech is violence but their violence is speech! (sarc) As an aside, it's rather ironic that people who fled the terrorism and misery of Castro's Cuba have a potential Democrat vice presidential nominee - Karen Bass - who, as even a Democrat campaign consultant put it, "makes Bernie Sanders look like Ronald Reagan."

In a sane, rational world, people would understand that there is a difference between the words and literal meaning of "black lives matter" and the organization "Black Lives Matter." The fact that you can be fired from your job, driven from the public square or perhaps physically assaulted for even uttering the words "all lives matter" is terrorism straight up. Given the social and economic pressure being exerted on average Americans by corporate America to conform or else, in theory the radicals are in the catbird seat and if they were patient enough are in the position to wield power without even firing a shot. But, Leftists are gonna Leftist so they pull shit like this. But that said, the history of the advancement of socialism in this country has always been to put the most radical, insane ideas into the public discourse even if they draw a loud, visceral reaction and condemnation. But in doing so, they lay down a marker for the future. Think gay marriage, transgender "rights" and perhaps even the normalization of pedophilia. We're already seeing the abolition of police departments and the decriminalization of crime while Mount Rushmore barely survived being dynamited.

Circling back, the manifesto of BLM as well as the public statements of its leaders/founders unequivocally show it has very little to do with righting alleged racial injustice and everything to do with fomenting a Marxist revolution to overthrow America and seize power. As I stated before, just like Antifa, Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization and a criminal enterprise. President Trump would be justified in officially designating them as such and bringing the full weight of the federal justice and intelligence systems down and squashing them like the filthy cockroaches they are.

As you may realize, doing so has its pitfalls, to say the least. The ear-splitting geschrei of being called a racist would be instantaneous and constant. But, once again, it would be just one more example of Trump controlling the narrative, putting the argument out there and forcing the Democrat-Media Complex on its heels. The other problem, as we know all to well, would be the loyalty of those in the Justice Department and Intel communities to carry out his directives. Insubordination ain't just a river in northern Virginia. And the reason I bring up the IC is because I would bet BLM as well as Antifa are being funded not only domestically but from overseas, and at the highest levels of some of our biggest international nation-state enemies.

Yet with risk comes reward, and there are some tremendous ones. First, BLM and Antifa are perhaps the largest and most well organized insurrectionist/terrorist organizations working to subvert the nation. But that movement is a multi-headed hydra and in going after them, the opportunity exists to take down or at least defang it. No doubt that would mean going after scores of individuals in government, the media and academia who in theory could be charged, or at the very least exposed (for whatever that is worth given the conditions we find ourselves in [surrounded]).

More crucially, it would seriously strike back at corporate America's and Big Tech's ability to suppress and oppress ordinary citizens who are not "down for the struggle," so to speak. Plus, the nearly $2 billion corporate America has donated to (willingly or not) to BLM could be open to asset forfeiture by the DoJ.

Whatever the problems, pitfalls or even the improbability given the state of our society of bringing this about, the fact remains that BLM, Antifa and its allied organizations and cadres are by definition terrorist, insurrectionist organizations. Anyone and everyone who backs them, whether openly or in secret, via monetary support or in other ways gives them succor, is also a terrorist.

At a very minimum, openly declaring them to be terrorists is a moral imperative.
