“‘Black lives matter,’ taken as a sentence, is profoundly true. But it’s not that simple. ‘Black Lives Matter’ did not emerge merely as a sentence. Those three words function as a message and a platform making a significant political statement – one guided by Marxist ideology that seeks to revolutionize our culture and society.” — R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
Mohler wrote those words recently in a piece titled, “Black Lives Matter: Affirm the Sentence, Not the Movement.”
In the article, he points out disturbing affirmations on the Black Lives Matter website.
“We are guided by the fact that all black lives matter, regardless of actual or perceived sexual identity, gender identity, gender expression,” one begins, whereupon the original founders (three women) go on to unfurl an emerging theme.
“We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk,” BLM posted.
“In this affirmation,” the post continued. “The Black Lives Matter Global Network adopts and promotes the entire worldview of the sexual revolution, which seeks to liberate humanity from the oppressive chains of biological gender.”
“They seek to ‘foster a queer-affirming network,’” Mohler wrote.
But that’s only the beginning of the BLM radical beliefs. Mohler exposes the groups’ desire to destroy and eliminate the traditional nuclear family.
“We build a space that affirms Black women and is free from sexism, misogyny, and environments in which men are centered,” BLM posted. “We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another.”
Mohler points out his observations of the BLM founders thusly.
“These statements, definitions, and policy demands are saturated in a Marxist ideology, promoting an intersectional worldview that is fundamentally subversive and destructive,” Mohler wrote. “Black Lives Matter operates from a worldview that undercuts human dignity. It sees each person’s identity as determined by externally imposed social structures, which are in turn determined by the human desire to seize power and oppress others. Such identity politics entangles human identity in subjective, materialist terms.
“The Movement for Black Lives, by contrast, seeks to dismantle the foundations of American civilization,” he concluded.
Remarkably, this movement has been swallowed by college and professional sports – as well as numerous major corporations.
The NFL players, coaches and sideline staff are now being encouraged to kneel during our nation’s National Anthem, right after standing for the singing of the Black National Anthem first.
How unifying is that?
The NBA announced that when the league begins its shortened 2020 season on July 30, players will have the option to replace their name on their jersey with a “social justice” statement.
Of the 29 accepted statements the players voted for, “Black Lives Matter” was No. 1. “All Lives Matter” didn’t even make the list.
We have a mixed race college football player – from Canada no less – saying he’ll boycott the season because his coach wore a T-shirt during a fishing trip, and the player didn’t like it. I’m not kidding. The coach was brutally attacked.
The coach then took a $1 million pay cut and succumbed to the mob and agreed to genuflect to his administrators who are forcing him into a BLM “re-education camp,” much like the Nazis had in the 1940s – or like the communist Chinese still do today.
Another “oppressed” Texas Longhorn player threatened to sit it out because he wants the university to establish more re-education camps, I guess.
I say pull their scholarship and ban them from their respective campuses forever.
I will not watch the NFL or the NBA. The players were hired to play a game, not push their communist drool.
One a sentence, the other – terrorists, with a Marxist agenda.
