9. That's what I've always thought although I didnt need to hear it from some Fox "News" twit

 

The name itself comes off as very divisive and I believe it serves two main purposes

1. It creates racial division and tension so people will fight with each other instead of focusing on the bigger issue of police aggression and brutality in America (Divide et impera)

2. It attempts to make people who are against police brutality look like crazy extremists and anarchists.

I think #BlackLivesMatter was created and founded by pro-police/right wing groups which is why you're now seeing them target democrats and you're seeing people like Marissa Jenae Johnson who supported Sarah Palin (of all people) heading up BlackLivesMatter in places like Seattle.

Just look up programs like COINTELPRO and the Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission

Also watch Spies of Mississippi which is based on the MSSC.



Spies of Mississippi is a journey into the world of informants, infiltrators, and agent provocateurs in the heart of Dixie.

The film tells the story of a secret spy agency formed by the state of Mississippi to preserve segregation and maintain “the Mississippi way of life,” white supremacy, during the 1950s and ‘60s. The Mississippi State Sovereignty Commission (MSSC) evolved from a predominantly public relations agency to a full-fledged spy operation, spying on over 87,000 Americans over the course of a decade.

The Commission employed a network of investigators and informants, including African Americans, to help infiltrate some of the largest Black organizations like National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and The Congress of Racial Equality (CORE). The MSSC was granted broad powers to investigate private citizens and organizations, keep secret files, make arrests, and compel testimony for a state that, as civil rights activist Lawrence Guyot says in the film, “was committed to an apartheid system that would make South Africa blush.”

The film reveals the full scope and impact of the Commission, including its links to private white supremacist organizations, its ties to investigative agencies in other states, and even its program to bankroll the opposition to civil rights legislation in Washington D.C.

Weaving in chilling footage of Ku Klux Klan rallies and government propaganda films alongside rare images and interviews from the period, Spies of Mississippi tracks the Commission’s hidden role in many of the most important chapters of the civil rights movement, including the integration of the University of Mississippi, the assassination of Medgar Evers, and the KKK murders of three civil rights workers in 1964.

And if you think this type of stuff couldn't happen today, think again.



Last year these three inserted themselves in a protest for Ezell Ford in Los Angeles and started screaming at people, shoving photographers and tried to light a reporter on fire, thankfully local residents stepped in and ran them off.



Just something to think about.
