NEW YORK CITY, NY – Former New York City mayor, Rudy Giuliani told Just the News, that “you got the beginnings of a pretty good case” for designating Black Lives Matter a domestic terrorist organization.
Just the News reported:
“‘This organization is this close to being able to be designated as a domestic terrorist organization,’ Giuliani said in an interview with Just the News, holding his thumb and index finger very close together.
“‘First of all, they’re dedicated to hating America. Second, they’re dedicated to tearing down most of the institutions, not only of our government but also of our society,’ Giuliani said, mentioning ‘the family, and schools, and religious education and religion.’
He added, ‘They have a pretty close connection with violence.'”

The article then went on to say that Giuliani “alleges” that BLM opposes the traditional family.
Here is what he said on that:
“They’re dead set against the nuclear family. Basically, they’re dead set against fathers. They don’t like fathers.”
The murder of Janari Ricks, only 9, should shock the nation. His life is not recognized by BLM demonstrations of any kind. But it’s recognized by all good Americans. And I’m proud that the community worked with the Chicago Police to locate the suspect. Maybe the tide is turning?

But, here is the exact verbiage from the Black Lives Matter website (emphasis added):
“We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
Seems relatively cut and dry. It doesn’t seem that the word “alleged” was necessary, given the verbiage on their website.
This protest movement has passed way beyond outrage over the unjustifiable killing of Mr. Floyd.
It has become Marxist #HateAmerica riots permitted in Democrat cities.
DON’T KNEEL TO THEM LIKE DEMOCRATS DO!
STAND UP FOR AMERICA!

This wasn’t the only time the the former mayor set his sights on Black Lives Matter. Back in June, he said that BLM is part of an “organized anarchist network intent on destroying our government, doing away with our system of courts, and take your property away and give it to other people.”
“‘This is an orchestrated effort,’ saying this is ‘no longer’ about the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month. ‘That ended a long time ago.'”
Much like the writer at Just the News, a writer at Huffington Post that ran an interview back in June obviously doesn’t agree with Rudy.
That writer said:
The Huffington Post writer then compared what Giuliani said to comments made by Fox’s Tucker Carlson, which they called racist:
“They flood the streets with angry young people who break things, and they hurt anyone who gets in the way. When they want something, they take it.
“Make them mad, and they will set your business on fire. Annoy them, and they will occupy your downtown and declare a brand-new country. You’re not going to do anything about it. They know that for certain.”
There are people who will argue that what Carlson said is not actually about Black Lives Matter, but about the white, masked individuals causing chaos in our streets.
But, we have shown that to simply be a talking point of the left-leaning media.

It’s bad enough when government officials, hellbent on unconstitutional power grabs, do what they can to limit or outright abolish the 1st Amendment rights of Americans when it comes religion. It is even worse when mobs of people, hiding behind masks and a “peaceful” movement do what they can to disrupt the ability of Americans to go to church.
In California, Governor Gavin Newsom has made it a crime to sing in church.
In Tampa and Baton Rouge, pastors were arrested for continuing to hold church services during a pandemic.
In Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot dispatched police officers to churches to issue citations for the people in attendance at services.
In New York City, Bill de Blasio threatened to confiscate churches and synagogues to keep people form attending.
All because COVID-19 apparently can spread in churches, but not in protests, acts of arson and looting or vandalism.
But now, staying in the state of New York, we have a group of Black Lives Matter activists, who claim to be all about equality for all, storming a church, shouting down the attendees of Grace Baptist Church in Troy.
They threatened to call Child Protective Services on parents for the “abusive” act of taking their kids to church on a Sunday. They went inside chanting, “black lives matter,” interrupting the service. They had to be escorted out by the police.

[Writer’s note: I am a Christian. I am also a parent. I applaud the restraint these people in the videos below were able to display.
If you come to my house or my church and put a bullhorn in my child’s face, and scream obscene things at them, we are going to have a problem. If you try to terrorize my children and create trauma for them. Words will be exchanged. So will fists.]
Christians at Grace Baptist Church in Troy, NY we’re gathering to worship Sunday when BLM stormed their sanctuary and took over their church.
Violent BLM members stopped the service and assaulted the peaceful Christians verbally and physically.

These young children were more mature than the thugs berating them and their mother as they walked into church.
Hear as pastor asks them multiple to stop blocking the church entrance.

“One masked protestor walked up to a man inside the church and showed her tattoo, saying ‘Look. I’m a Christian preacher, you dumb f***.’
A man says ‘black lives matter’ and the rest repeat the mantra, drowning out the preacher.
Security approaches the protestors, and appears to touch one of them. This leads the others to say ‘Don’t touch anyone. Don’t touch him! Back up!’
Security asks them to leave, saying ‘this is a house of God.’
The protestors and the worshippers [sic] call each other bro. ‘Everyone’s a brother here.’
‘Jesus loves you,’ a voice says.
‘Jesus don’t love you,’ comes the reply.
‘Don’t be disrespectful of God,’ a worshipper [sic] says.”
The Times-Union also ran with the story of the protest, calling the pastor “alt-right-wing.”
They also say that the protesters were there because the church was giving away an AR-15, and that they “briefly” blocked the entrance.
The video seems to contradict the Times-Unions account.
“Grace Baptist, which is led by alt-right-wing pastor Rev. John Koletas, has given away rifles at least twice before, once in 2014 and again in 2017. Six years ago, the giveaway was in response to New York’s SAFE Act and stricter gun laws.
The church says it is doing another gun giveaway Monday night. The motto of the church on the gun giveaway information reads, ‘Where the Spirit of the Lord lives, there is liberty.’
“Organizers from regional Black Lives Matter rallies arrived to take part in Sunday’s protest. Koletas’ sermons, which are posted weekly on the church’s Facebook page, are viewed by many as extreme.
In a recent sermon, he denounced the officer who killed George Floyd in Minneapolis as ‘evil,’ but then linked violence that broke out at some of the protests that followed the death as being caused by ‘a bunch of savages who have let their sins run rampant.’
“More protesters arrived Sunday, and eventually a handful stood in front of the church steps as people were trying to enter. A mother with her young children pushed her way through the protesters, and then some protesters with bullhorns shouted, ‘Save these kids.'”
But wait, I thought Black Lives Matter was all about black lives mattering. What does this church and their members have to do with “the movement?”
Perhaps it is because BLM is not who they say they are.
Even CNN’s Don Lemon let the cat out of the bag.
“The Black Lives Matter movement was started because it was started about police brutality. If you want an All Black Lives Matter movement that talks about gun violence in communities including Black communities, then start that movement with that name,” he said. “But that’s not what Black Lives Matter is about.”
So, what is it about?
