In President Obama’s final State of the Union, “you’ll hear the president talk about making sure that every American has a chance to influence this democracy. Not the select few, not the millionaires and the billionaires, but every American.” White House Chief of Staff Bill McDonough said Sunday.
That’s why it’s so appropriate that Barbara Lee invited a Black Lives Matter co-founder to the State of the Union. What better way to showcase what he’s done and who he wants influencing our democracy?
Leftist Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) has invited Alicia Garza to attend the State of the Union. Garza is the revolutionary co-founder of the radical and violent hate group, Black Lives Matter. The group was founded on the now fully debunked, Hands Up, Don’t Shoot narrative.
Lee and Garza have confirmed attendance via Twitter.
Black Lives Matter travels around to political events to disrupt speeches and bully politicians, they show up in restaurants to ruin peoples’ dining experiences, they’ve disrupted military award ceremonies, but mostly they foment trouble in places like Ferguson and Baltimore. Their main goal is to stoke black rage against whites and against police.
Three militant feminists co-founded the organization: Parisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, an open borders leftist, and Opel Tometi.
Alicia Garza is a self-described “queer” social-justice activist who reveres the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, and convicted cop-killer Assata Shakur for her contributions to the “Black Liberation Movement.”
Garza is likewise a great admirer of Angela Davis (another Marxist and former Black Panther), Ella Baker (an avowed socialist who had ties to the Communist Party USA and the Weather Underground), Audre Lorde (a black Marxist lesbian feminist), and Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee activist Fannie Lou Hamer.
“These women really attempt and attempted to tackle some of the biggest questions facing our society,” says Garza. “Learning about them and in some cases getting a chance to meet them really underscores that everyday people, when working together with a shared vision, can accomplish extraordinary things.”
According to Garza, #BlackLivesMatter has at its essence, “a tactic to (re)build the Black liberation movement” for those who, as a result of ubiquitous “white supremacy” and “state violence,” have been “deprived of [their] basic human rights and dignity.”
Communist Bill Ayers, retired professor and domestic terrorist, friend to Barack Obama, was on Liberation Radio discussing Black Lives Matter. He is very involved and rallied with them in front of CME in Chicago recently.
In an interview with Yale Daily News, Ayers said he likes to think that Barack Obama’s “association with me got him elected.”
He was interviewed on Liberation Radio by host Shawn Garcia. Liberation Radio is the station for socialism and liberation and their goal is to build socialism in the United States, according to them.
Ayers, who lives in 1964, said Black Lives Matter is “one of the most hopeful signs in the last several decades of folks coming together and building a movement for fundamental change.”
He described the movement as a revolutionary socialist movement.
“There is no single issue or single struggle that amounts to the social upheaval we need,” Ayers explained. “What we need is a social movement that engages and mobilizes masses of people, and frankly Black Lives Matter is at this moment a pretty good beginning example of that.”
He warned against allowing it to be co-opted and demeaned FBI Director Jim Comey as a reactionary for talking about how police officers are afraid to do their jobs. There is no sympathy coming from communists like Bill Ayers.
“It’s never a single or a simple issue,” Ayers said.
“So what we have to do is connect militarized police and the militarized occupation of some communities,” Ayers said conspiratorially, expanding the revolutionary methodology.
“We have to link that with the fact there are no jobs in those communities, that the mental health facilities in Chicago have all been closed in those communities, the hospitals have been stripped of their resources in those communities, and 50 public schools in Chicago were closed,” he continued.
Ironically, the communities are run by Democrats and it is the Democrats alone who have destroyed them.
