Black Lives Matter Lists “White Supremacy, Patriarchy, Capitalism” Among Reasons for Orlando Attack

While conservatives identify the Orlando massacre as an Islamic terrorist attack and the left blames a variety of factors including conservatives and guns, the Black Lives Matter movement has published its own unique perspective on the cause of this atrocity.

“Despite the media’s framing of this as a terrorist attack, we are very clear that this terror is completely homegrown, born from the anti-Black white supremacy, patriarchy and homophobia of  [sic] the conservative right and of those who would use religious extremism as a weapon to gain power for the few and take power from the rest.”

Although the Orlando killer had been investigated by the FBI as a possible terror threat, and despite his declaration of allegiance to ISIS during the attack, Black Lives Matter emphatically asserts that, “The enemy is now and has always been the four threats of white supremacy, patriarchy, capitalism, and militarism.  These forces and not Islam create terrorism.”

The group repeatedly rejects the notion that Islamic doctrine motivated the murderer. “We will not allow a false narrative of ‘Islamic terrorism’ to be dictated by white supremacists and corporate media.” While denying any linkage between the attack and Islam, the article also states, “Religious extremism is not new to America and is not unique to Islam. For centuries, religion has been used to subjugate queer people of color and lay the groundwork for our deaths.”

Even the left’s attempt to restructure the public discourse into an argument about gun control fails to satisfy Black Lives Matter:

“We will not allow our movement to be dominated by white progressives that still attempt to define our solutions and limit our leadership. We will not allow the vision to be stunted by a gun control agenda with neither racial context nor a clear history of the relationship between white supremacy and guns in the United States.”

The article further explains that while Black Lives Matter agrees with the calls for gun control, “You cannot decry guns without also decrying how those guns were used to take Native land, to enslave Black bodies, to remake ‘Latin America’, and to redefine the western hemisphere. We need more than legislation, more than vigils and prayers, more than donations — we need a deep transformation at the cellular levels of this nation.”

Part of this crusade for societal “transformation,” includes the mainstreaming of LGBTQ lifestyles. Black Lives Matter’s LGBTQ agenda appears in the title of its article: “In Honor of Our Dead: Latinx, Queer, Trans, Muslim, Black — We Will Be Free.” The term “Latinx,” represents a gender-neutral form of the word Latino/Latina.

Black Lives Matter’s article about the Orlando massacre does not comport with the available facts of the case, it only echoes the movement’s preexisting ideology.

    While the author of this article is clear that BLM’s position about the Orlando massacre does not comport with the available facts of the case, he does not attempt to rectify why BLM’s ideology seems to defy common sense. For example, these two quotes unsubstantiated by any FACTS:

    “…we are very clear that this terror is completely homegrown, born from the anti-Black white supremacy, patriarchy and homophobia of [sic] the conservative right and of those who would use religious extremism as a weapon to gain power for the few and take power from the rest.”

    “We will not allow a false narrative of ‘Islamic terrorism’ to be dictated by white supremacists and corporate media.”

    Like the Hands up – Don’t shoot LIE, BLM is all too ready to jump to erroneous conclusions, while contorting news information to fit their narrative. Just one example, making a statement such as “…homophobia of the conservative right…” while failing to acknowledge the fact that Mateen was a registered Democrat.

    And not only mateen, but almost every mass shooter in the last 35 years in America has been a registered Democrat. The early Communists in Russia of 1917 were quite violent, also.

    It’s a good thing that the majority of us black, white, Asian, Hispanic, or I should just say Americans don’t buy into this black lives matter communist garbage. Thank you Lord for giving us the common sense to know all lives matter.

    I find BLM’s insistence that capitalism is bad for Blacks very insulting to Blacks. Capitalism, in its simplest form, pays you what you are worth. Blacks claiming that it is “White privilege” to be told to wake up early, show up on time, speak correctly, pull up your pants, are in so many words saying that Blacks are too stupid to earn a decent living in America and need to be fed by others. What alternatives are there to capitalism? Communism? That has worked so well–ask the millions killed or starved in the USSR. Socialism? Ask Venezuela how that is going. Fascism? Find a survivor of the Holocaust to discuss how well that worked. In capitalism, the race is on to build the better mouse trap, burrito, social network, house, etc. Not sit around and wait to lick the hands that feed you.

    For all you BLM adherents, your paradise already exists, pick any of the sub Saharan African cesspools or maybe Haiti, it’s even closer. You fools blame your inadequacy on others, Whites to be exact because to see the truth that you just aren’t as capable as us is too hard for you to swallow. You can’t compete on equal ground. You need special rules just for you blacks just to get by and the idiot White liberals are in it with you as your mentors. Hahahahaha

    The level of ignorance within this group just makes me sick. I’m happy for the most part they are not getting the coverage they used to get. Even the MSM is beginning to ignore them. Maybe these people need to travel to Africa and the Middle East where black slave trade is still alive and thriving. Of course they are all entirely to ignorant to know this still happens. Also entirely to ignorant to know that the KKK, Jim Crow laws, Segregation, and not allowing blacks to vote was primarily the Democrats. The Republicans put a stop to this. But can you blame them really> They are IGNORANT and believe what they are told and not anything based on facts. Just like all Democrats/Liberals/Progressives/ and Marxists.

    They forgot to mention the demotion of Pluto from “planet” to “Kuiper Belt object”.

    BLM don’t seem to realize, or don’t seem to care that they make black people look easily manipulable and stupid.

    Yep, it’s all the white mans fault. That’s why Somalia and Nigeria are such garden spots.

    The BLM collective is run by people with mental disorders. There’s no other explanation. Do they realize that the majority of black Americans are Christians? They are radicals who create an unnecessary atmosphere of distrust of all white people. Beyond pathetic. Ironic that BLM is mostly funded by millionaire and billionaire white people.

    The Early and all Communists in Russia were VERY violent. Look up the Holodomor or better still take a look at The Soviet Story on Amazon. Like the Nazi Death Camps the Soviets also filmed the mass murders they committed in Death Camps all over Russia and they continued the murders long after WWII was over.

    They are the products of Big Ed’s Progressive Public Indoctrination Education aka public schools. BLM is another reason why SCHOOL CHOICE MATTERS.

    Each day thet passes and the more they open their mouth, the more I believe they’re the KKK in black skin. So openly racist.

    Did they happen to list the fact that all members, supporters, and associates of Black Lives Matters, are degenerate anti American morons? If not, the frickin racist, anti American mental midgets should have.

    They are already on the government plantation. It owns blacks and helps reward them with 70% rate of illegitimate births and black-on-black murder rates so grossly high that if the democrat-run cities of DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, St Louis, Detroit, and Chicago were not included in total gun murders we would go from 4th in the World for gun-related murders to near dead last.
