Why We Will Never Join the Black Lives Matter Organization or Financially Support The Organization
by Horace and Lena Fields-Arnold
Posted July 9, 2020
(Please read through this entire post before you start calling me homophobic, trans-phobic, or all the other names people like to use when they think a post is going to be an anti-LGBTQI post.)
When the Black Lives Matter (BLM) Global Network began to organize it started out as a chapter-based, member-led organization whose mission was to build local power and to intervene when violence was inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes.
Then, like Wal-Mart in the ’90’s they who lured us in with false promises that it was all about America, BLM pulled the bait and switch.
According to their website the Black Lives Matter Movement:
- makes space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead.
- works to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.
- builds a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.
- engages comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
- makes their spaces family-friendly and enables 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.”
- disrupts 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.
- fosters a queer‐affirming network.
- gathers with the intention of “freeing ourselves from the tight grip of hetero normative thinking,” or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).-BlackLivesMatter .com
Could this be because all three founders of the Black Lives Matter movement are women, two identify as queer, and the third is a transgender woman. The founders believe that their backgrounds have paved the way for Black Lives Matter to be an intersectional movement. (Click link to learn more about their beliefs on intersectionality) To Learn More about the founders click here.
The BLM website acknowledges that their primary focus for 2020 is “on issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration (?), economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights (?), environmental injustice (?), access to healthcare access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression.
Let’s start by saying that what adults in their private lives is of no concern. No one should be treated differently based on their lifestyle, race, religion, gender, sexual identity, etc., etc., etc.
The problem is that when Black Lives Matter morphed from a hashtag into a formal organization it did so under the guise of black lives mattering according to their original statement. Inherent and inclusive in that statement was ALL BLACK LIVES-period!
Now it’s been discovered that they have a side agenda!
It’s that side agenda that’s concerning.
Side Order #1–Dismantle Cisgender Privilege
What exactly does it mean to dismantle cisgender privilege? Sam Killerman in his article “30 examples of cisgender privelege,” provides some insight into what this means. A few are listed below. Feel free to click the link to read the full article.
- Being able to use public facilities without fear “stares, fear, or anxiety” or of verbal abuse, physical intimidation, or arrest.
- Strangers don’t assume they can ask you what your genitals look like and how you have sex.
- You can walk through the world and generally blend in, not being constantly stared or gawked at, whispered about, pointed at, or laughed at because of your gender expression.
- You can access gender-exclusive spaces (they want special places ), and not be excluded due to your trans status.
More examples could be listed, but suffice it to say none of them include the fear of having your brains blown away by a racist cop, or fear of being lynched just because you are black, or all the other shit black people have had to face for the last 400 plus years!\
What are they trying to tear apart, put asunder, and utterly do away with families? Men? America?
Side Order #2–Build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered.
Ummmm, wasn’t this supposed to be about ALL BLACK LIVES?
According to their website Black Lives Matter was founded in 2013 as a direct “response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer. Black Lives Matter Foundation, Inc. is a global organization in the US, UK, and Canada, whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes. By combating and countering acts of violence, creating space for Black imagination and innovation, and centering Black joy, we are winning immediate improvements in our lives.”
Violence which disproportionately impacts black MEN, yet they don’t want an affirming centered space for black men? Only black women?
Side Order #3. – engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.
Comrades! Who other than Communist use words like comrade. So, who are they engaging and connecting with? Pastor Stephen E.Broden in his article titled “WARNING: The Real Power and Purpose Behind the ‘Black Lives Matter’ written for Black Community News states: “Whatever legitimacy the “Black Lives Matters” (BLM) movement may have, is lost in its funding from one George Soros.” said Pastor Broden. “Mr. Soros is the major financial source responsible for funding the leftist movement in America.” His article further outlines how organizations have historically infiltrated and weakened black movements and destroyed legitimate attempts by black organizations to make positive change in order to advance their own agendas. David Horowitz in his book “Breaking The System” delves deeper into that strategy
Side Order #4–dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts”
What patriarchal practice requires this?-Since when did America REQUIRE that mother’s work double shifts? What does that even have to to with Black Lives Matter?
Starting to see a pattern here? Is anyone else seeing it?
Side Order #5–disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement
Okay this one is just stupid. Since when is a family consisting of a mother, father, and children a “western” thing. This is not a new concept and it is one practiced all over the world. Again, who requires this? The last time I checked there were no laws mandating family structure. It could be argued that insurance companies and businesses only acknowledge a “legal” marriage, but that’s often less about discrimination, and more about protection from fraudulent and claims. Which impact heterosexual couples as much as homosexual couples. So why the need to “disrupt” the “nuclear family?” You don’t need to destroy one thing to build up another-UNLESS you truly hate the thing that was previously built. So why do they want to destroy my family? Your family? The family structure of the VAST majority of the world?
Not only that, but they want to destroy the very thing that documented studies have shown actually benefit black communities as evidenced by what is now known as the Moynihan Report. The document titled “The Negro Family: The Case For National Action (1965) was written by Daniel Patrick Moynihan, an American sociologist serving as Assistant Secretary of Labor under President Lyndon B. Johnson of the United States. In in his well laid out report he affirmed that the greatest threat to black people was the destruction of the black family. Yet it seems that BLM wants to undermine the very thing that will help black communities get stronger. (https://www.blackpast.org/african-american-history/moynihan-report-1965/)
Side Order #6–foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking
WHAT? Is this the Boston Tea Party of 2020? Are they patriots longing to free themselves from the grip of a tyrant king? Someone has been watching way too much “Hamilton” (Which we love by the way! Shout out to Lin-Manuel Miranda!) This sounds like heterosexuals are King George hell bent of keeping the colonist under foot and LGBTQ’s are dedicated patriots who want to separate from their domineering motherland and create a new society!-WAIT! Perhaps that is that what they want?
Again one is left to wonder-WHERE ARE THE ABUSED AND MISTREATED BLACK PEOPLE IN ALL THIS? WHAT ABOUT THE BLACK LIVES THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO MATTER?
As a writers and publishers we understand the impact of language. Their language is intentional and very specific, and lends credence to the idea that something insidious lies beneath the surface of the Black Lives Matter Movement. Our fear, as black people is that we as a people are being used, and the change we are seeking will not necessarily be to the benefit of black people as a whole. Black Lives Matter is using a real issue to promote their underlying agenda to destroy the things that are good about America. We can support LGBTQ’s without sacrificing our men. We can have villages, without tearing down the fabric and idea of a “traditional” family. One need not be mutually exclusive of the other.
When one uses language like comrade, dismantle, disrupt, and “freeing ourselves from the grip of...” it sounds dangerously close to anarchy and revolution and it leads one to wonder to whom the founders of this movement really owe their allegiance.
Writer Ryan Bomberger in his article for Town Hall entitled, “Top 10 Reasons I Won’t Support the #BlackLivesMatter Movement,” stated “Every life unjustly killed deserves justice. In the cause to make things right, I will not join a movement that has nearly everything wrong.”
Bomberger believes the founders created it (BLM) to radically shift culture, and points to many of the funding sources as proof. He continues and list his top ten reasons for not supporting. Among them are:
- Relying on false premises to sell the narrative. I won’t go into the details because they can all be read in his article. I don’t know that I agree with him on this point, but I have to agree that statistics can and are often skewed when people are tying to prove their point.
- There is no goal of forgiveness or reconciliation.
- It’s all about Black Power. So am I, but more from an empowerment and equality point of view as opposed to a “destroy the man” point of view. I want America to live up to her ideals, but I don’t want to tear down America. I don’t want America destroyed. I love my country. Sure she has faults and frailties, but she’s still my girl!
They heavily promote homosexuality and transgenderism.
They completely ignore fatherhood.
They demand reparations. While it sounds good and I’m all for getting free money, but what they want is completely ridiculous.
They want to abolish prisons and police forces. Police reform, oversight, and demilitarization=GOOD. Abolish=Bad.
- They are anti-capitalism. I’m alright with capitalism. It’s not perfect, but considering that alternatives haven’t worked out so well for most countries I think we should keep it.
- Apparently, not all black lives matter. According to Bomberger BLM is Pro-abortion and supports the genocidal organization of Planned Parenthood.
WHAT”S THE END GAME of BLM?
To quote the now famous line from “Hamilton”-let’s follow the money and see where it goes…This video does a great job of showing you where the money goes.
So if you took a moment to watch the video, then you followed the money and saw that the trail leads to a plethora of mostly democratic political candidates. So then BLM is a Political Action Committee. It’s a PAC ya’ll. Well now the side order agendas make sense.
If you are a white person and you really want to help the black community, find a local organization, who has been helping black people for much longer than Black Lives Matter, and give of your money and time. Volunteer to help young people at the Boys and Girls Club. Support a sports team in the black community, donate to an HBCU, partner with a local black church. It’s very easy to listen to the loudest voice and think, “I’ll just support that.” Dig deeper. That black kid right in your town will be much more appreciative than the adults behind black lives matter. That person will then really believe that their life matters when you make a direct contribution into their life.
If you are black, then you already know about these organizations and the HBCU’s who need money and are really struggling right now. Donate to them. Give to their scholarships funds, support the student led organizations.
We are not saying stop marching, but do so for the meaning behind the movement, not for the organization. Pay attention to legislation that is being pushed to make sure the black agenda is really being prioritized and not some sneaky, back door, side agenda.
If you believe in LGBTQ rights, then give directly to their organizations. I mean think about it. If you financially supported an LGBTQ equal rights group, and found out the organization was secretly supporting a side agenda that had nothing to do with your needs, and that organization might actually be hindering you from getting your needs met, wouldn’t you be angry and upset too?
Now, if you are fine with their agenda, if you don’t mind the deception, if you believe in communist and Marxist ideas, if you don’t care about actual black lives, if you don’t care to see your dollars actually helping real people; then by all means send your money to BLM. Personally, I’d rather give my money to the black kids pushing their lawnmower in the summer or a shovel in the winter. They will appreciate it and I can be confident that my money is helping a real person with a real need right in the moment.
Many people really want to help the black community right now and that is a good thing. Just be sure you are supporting organizations that support your ideals.
We know this post will invite a lot of comments and that’s fine, but life is way too short to argue or debate with people so we will not respond to any argumentative comments that gender strife. However, if you write a well thought out counterpoint and ask permission post it on this blog, I will be happy to do so; or if it is on your blog I will re-post it here.
TRIGGER WARNING: If you have a sense of humor check out this post. I you don’t have a sense of humor, then you might not want to. LOL, I have seen some of these people in action. So far none of their Jedi Mind Trips have worked that I can see, but it’s hilarious to watch, especially after reading the post.
If you have a problem with the post do me a favor and leave your comments with the original writers. I’m just sayin’! If the post makes you uptight, maybe these puppies will help you chill out.
I have learned that when someone else says it better. I let them.
