Make no mistake about it. Black Lives Matter as an organization has nothing to do with black lives (see Chicago and New York), police brutality, or systemic racism.
What it does have to do with is a radical leftist, Marxist agenda. And it isn’t just in the United States where they are looking to accomplish this. The BLM movement is an international movement.
In London on Sunday, a Black Lives Matter “demonstration” was taking place, when a self-described mixed-race member of the alphabet community was speaking about the concept of intersectionality.
According to Breitbart News, he said that it means:
“[There is “one common enemy: the white man. We need to get rid of them.”
During the demonstration, BLM protesters went from Marble Arch in Hyde Park to Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, where speakers spoke out against systemic racism and capitalism. See…Marxists.
For those not versed, intersectionality is a left-wing theory stating that race, class, and gender, when applied to an individual or group, is regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.”
In other words, the “victim” mentality.
During the event, one of the speakers said that to understand the Black Lives Matter Movement, people need to understand the tenets of intersectionality. See, not about alleged police brutality. That was only the spark that this organization took advantage of.
“You can’t talk about education, and you can’t talk about black issues, and LGBT issues, and exclude them as if they’re some individual issue; you need to be looking at this using intersectionality,” he said in an exclusive video on Breitbart London.
The speaker went on, saying intersectionality “means recognizing that there is one common enemy: the white man. The systems that they use are capitalism, patriarchy, and fascism. They were created and perpetuated by white men, for white men, in the interests of white men.”
Note in the above video that the capitalism hating speaker has in his hand an iPhone. Damned capitalism.
He continued, “…once we realize that we are all fighting the same fight, it just strengthens the army. A problem shared is a problem halved. Imagine if we all realized and came together and grouped together?”
“All of these groups of people, the issues they fact, it all comes from the same people: white men. So, we need to get rid of them,” he said, going on to suggest that—sotto voce—people should “kill the rich.” Ironically, the man making this statement was in fact, a half-white man.

The anti-Semitism then came out as this same activist parroted a debunked claim that both Apple and Google had recently removed “Palestine” from their map services—aside from the fact that neither company had ever listed the “Palestine” label on their maps, since there is no country called “Palestine.”
He suggested that this resulted from pressure applied to the companies by the United States and Israel.
“Palestine is not gone, as much as Israel wants to take over everything, as much as America is funding them,” the speaker said.
Earlier this month at another BLM protest, an activist who was dressed in Black Panther-style clothing said that it wasn’t anti-Semitic to “say free Palestine.”
“Don’t let no Jewish man create a way to be unheard, to make you unheard. Silence is violence. If we keep silent, we are also a part of that oppression,” she added.
Black Lives Matter UK has been heavily criticized for posting on social media a FREE PALESTINE rant, which attacked “Israel’s settler-colonial pursuits” and the alleged campaign that has “gagged of the right to critique Zionism.”
This isn’t about systemic racism and police brutality.
At that same demonstration, Breitbart reported that hundreds of pro-Yemeni and Black Lives Matter protesters had joined forces, and were seen shouting the Islamic phrased “Allah hu Akbar,” “Justice for Yemen” and other slogans used by the group in England, such as “the UK is not innocent.”
One speaker at that demonstration, a white male activist, said that he can’t understand the plight of minorities because he doesn’t “live in a black body,” and pointed to capitalism as the reason for the problems in the world.
“Quarterly return is the god that capitalism continually worships at. The realities are, as Extinction Rebellion well put it, that the profit motive means that you can never have infinite growth on a finite planet,” he said.
Yet another activist criticized the Declaration of Independence (guess he never got over the fact that England lost), saying that it was a product of “white capitalist slave owners,” and was used as a means to oppress black people.
However, one activist who had supported the group has distanced herself from the group, saying that the group has been “hijacked by a group of Marxists.” Given the fact that two members who founded the group are avowed Marxists, that his hardly surprising.
“The issue with BLM UK is they have not revealed themselves; they have not been transparent. They are abolitionists, they believe in the removal of prisons, smashing capitalism and abolishing the police,” Imaryn Ayton told the Daily Mail.
“I am just mortified because everyone has given money and they are not going to use that to better the black community. They are going to use it to abolish the police, remove prisons, and get rid of capitalism,” Ayton said.
Sounds quite a bit like the American version.
