Do Black Lives Matter?

Do black lives matter?

Hispanic lives? Muslim lives? Gay lives?
Women’s lives?
Black lives matter – to me, at least – if
blacks adhere to reason, lead productive, non-parasitical lives, do not demand
the unearned, and, to paraphrase Martin Luther King, Jr., if blacks judge
others, blacks, whites, Asians, Arabs, Hispanics, Muslims (not actually a
“race,” just as Islam is not a “race,” either), Mexicans, Cubans, and so on,
that is, judge an individual by the content of
his character
. This is how I expect to be judged, and how I judge others. I
otherwise place no importance on a person’s color.
But this is not what Black
Lives Matter
(BLM) means. BLM is grounded on
race and a hatred for whites and the police. The hatred is so severe that BLM
has declared war on the police. It is a terrorist
organization
, whether or not the government recognizes it as one. It has
declared war on the police to effect “change” in how the police handle blacks
in their encounters. Often it is black policemen who shoot or “mistreat” violent
blacks in the course of self-defense, and these policemen have also been deemed
“fair targets” by BLM for murder and harassment. Their “blackness” does not
exempt them from murder.
It is a black subculture, perpetuated by the
government and the welfare state, which rejects civilization, which BLM
perceives as an oppressor. Although what blacks as a “collective” would replace
it with has never been answered except for a “racial supremacy of blacks.” In
that respect it is similar to Islam’s goal of dominating every country in the
world.
Readers should be reminded that nothing like
Locke’s Two
Treatises of Government
ever came out of the Congo or Egypt or the
Sub-Sahara. Whatever there is to value in the West that serves as a benchmark
of life-affirming progress was produced in the “lily-white” north – across the Mediterranean.
Some historians and cultural writers contend
that climate played a big role in the development or Western civilization, so
that blacks living in deserts or in fetid, smothering jungles were at a
disadvantage to improve agriculture or invent steam engines and even to study
the skies.
This is not an endorsement of the racist
notion (advanced by creatures like the Aryan Nation and others)
that whites are genetically superior to blacks or any other race.
Left out of the narrative is the role of
reason.
This will not be the central subject of this
column, but I am repelled by today’s black subculture.  It is anti-reason, anti-esthetics,
anti-everything that comports with a civilized society, and is a belligerent
expression of self-hatred projected onto the “white race.” Today’s black
“entertainers” are not of the caliber of past black singers and musicians as
Cab Calloway and Louis
Armstrong and Billy Holiday.
Any blacks who have achieved anything in
today’s contentious racial environment (an environment encouraged and
perpetuated by Barack Obama) are hated by BLM. This hatred is exacerbated by
the MSM, which is largely Left and similarly reason-deficient and/or hostile.
Blacks who have achieved anything of value to anyone – and BLM members and
advocates also benefit from advances in medicine, engineering, law, and so on,
although they would never recognize them – are dismissed and demeaned as “Uncle
Toms” or “Oreo Cookies.” They are smeared as “sell-outs” to the white race,
when in fact those blacks “sold out” to reason and pro-life values. Reason, as
a tool of human survival, is color blind.

Not meaning to open a can of worms, I have read several books in the
past that discuss the idea that the “West” was superior only because of its
moderate climate or other, circumstantial external factors.  I have never been convinced or persuaded by
them.

On the other side of the issue is Martin
Bernal
’s’s multi-volume, reconstructive, pseudo-scholarly
explanation of how “whites” benefited from African/Asian  civilization, Black Athena: The Afroasiatic Roots of
Classical Civilization (The Fabrication of Ancient Greece 1785-1985
), or
stole ideas from African cultures but fabricated the superiority of “white”
Western civilization. Western civilization is a fraud, the books claim.

 

Bernal’s
opus
was on one hand criticized
for the paucity of archeological evidence that would support his thesis, but it
was also welcomed by many anti-West scholars, who now count in the dozens if
not scores throughout academia.
Some commenters
on the Quora
site are skeptical of Bernal’s scholarship.

Johannes
Musch
, Archaeologist
Martin Bernal’s “Black Athena
has been criticized by various authors, like the historians François-Xavier
Fauvelle [1],
Edith Hall  [2]
and the Egyptologist James Weinstein  [3]
. It should be noted that Martin Bernal wasn’t specialized in Egyptian
archaeology, history and linguistics in the first place. Therefore his work
should be considered merely as the interested view of an outsider.
Footnotes
Black Lives
Matter’s main thesis is that whites are the problem for blacks. Blacks are “forced”
to live in a “white” society, but for some unnamed reason this creates
conflicts, and it indirectly asserts that this is a twain that shall – or
should – never meet. BLM does not want reconciliation between whites and blacks
(as though in a society governed by reason one would be needed); that would
deflate any argument for declaring war on whites and the police. There is no
“natural” conflict between whites and blacks; any that may arise are artificial
and bogus and angles for political power.
BLM is basically a virulent spin-off of Louis
Farrakhan’s Nation of
Islam
( NOI), one of whose founding
tenets is that whites were an invention of a mad black scientist to replace the
dominant black race with whites (by kind of switching newborns in a hospital crèche
after delivery, or by murdering them).
The Nation of Islam’s mythology goes:
Elijah Muhammad once said that the Moon was once a part of the Earth, and that the Earth
is over 76 trillion years old
. The entire land mass on the Earth was called
“Asia”. This was, Elijah Muhammad claimed, long before Adam.
Elijah Muhammad declared that Black People in America are descendants of the
Asian black nation and of the tribe of Shabazz. He writes on page 31 in his
monumental book, “Message to the Blackman in America”, “…who
is this tribe of Shabazz? Originally, they were the tribe who came with the
earth (or this part) 66 trillion years ago when a great explosion on our planet
divided it into two parts. One we call earth and the other moon. This was done
by one of our scientists, God, who wanted the people to speak one language, one
dialect for all, but was unable to bring this about….”
Wallace Fard Muhammad taught that the original peoples of the world
were black and that white people were a race of “devils” created
by a scientist named Yakub (the Biblical and Qur’anic Jacob) on the Greek
island of Patmos.
According to the supreme wisdom lessons, Fard taught that whites were devils
because of a culture of lies and murder that Yakub instituted on the island to
ensure the creation of his new people. Fard taught that Yakub established a
secret eugenics policy among the ruling class on the island. They were to kill
all dark babies at birth and lie to the parents about the child’s fate.
Further, they were to ensure that lighter-skinned children thrived in society.
This policy encouraged a general preference for light skin. It was necessary to
allow the process of grafting or making of a lighter-skinned race of people who
would be different.
Black Lives Matter’s narrative meshes nicely
with NOI’s insanity,
an insanity that verges on, if not surpasses, a diagnosis of “racial
schizophrenia”. It is not an organization that seeks reason or reconciliation.
It is one that has a vested interest in victimhood, which in turn sanctions
warfare against the police and whites in general.
                #BlackLivesMatter
was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin’s murderer, George Zimmerman, was
acquitted for his crime, and dead 17-year old Trayvon was posthumously placed
on trial for his own murder. Rooted in the experiences of Black people in this
country who actively resist our dehumanization, #BlackLivesMatter is a call to
action and a response to the virulent anti-Black racism that permeates our
society. Black Lives Matter is a unique contribution that goes beyond
extrajudicial killings of Black people by police and vigilantes….
When we say Black Lives Matter, we are broadening the conversation
around state violence to include all of the ways in which Black people are
intentionally left powerless at the hands of the state.  We are talking
about the ways in which Black lives are deprived of our basic human rights and
dignity….
#BlackLivesMatter is working for a world where Black lives are no
longer systematically and intentionally targeted for demise.  We affirm
our contributions to this society, our humanity, and our resilience in the face
of deadly oppression.  We have put our sweat equity and love for Black
people into creating a political project–taking the hashtag off of social media
and into the streets. The call for Black lives to matter is a rallying cry
for ALL Black lives striving for liberation.
Nowhere in BLM literature are any facts cited,
for example, as they are by the noted black intellectual, Walter Williams of
George Mason University. In his January 19th article, “The
Black Community and Crime
,” he writes:
     The FBI reported that the total number of
homicides in 2015 was 15,696. Blacks were about 52 percent of homicide victims.
That means about 8,100 black lives were ended violently, and over 90 percent of
the time, the perpetrator was another black. Listening to the news media and
the Black Lives Matter movement, one would think that black deaths at the hands
of police are the major problem. It turns out that in 2015, police across
the nation shot and killed 986 people. Of that number, 495 were white (50
percent), 258 were black (26 percent) and 172 Hispanic (17 percent). A study of
2,699 fatal police killings between 2013 and 2015, conducted by John R. Lott
Jr. and Carlisle E. Moody of the Crime Prevention Research Center, demonstrates
that the odds of a black suspect’s being killed by a black police officer were
consistently greater than a black suspect’s getting killed by a white officer.
Politicians, race hustlers and the news media keep such studies under wraps
because these studies don’t help their narrative about racist cops.
Thomas Sowell, another
black intellectual and a prolific author (once a Marxist, he wrote one of the best
refutations of Marxism
, to which BLM subscribes in terms of racial instead
of “class” warfare), noted in his July 2013 article, “Who
is Racist?
I am so old that I can remember when most of the people promoting race
hate were white.
Apparently other Americans also recognize that the sources of racism
are different today from what they were in the past. According to a recent
Rasmussen poll, 31 percent of blacks think that most blacks are racists, while
24 percent of blacks think that most whites are racist.
A marriage of political ends between Islam
and BLM was in the cards. The Counter Jihad
Report
of January 9th stresses:
Despite the outcome of the election, and the outpouring of support for
the upcoming administration, there is an agenda by individuals and their
organizations that wish to disrupt and dismantle the future of this presidency.
This Starts January 14, The Weekend Of
Martin Luther King Jr.’S Birthday, And DOES NOT STOP Till This Regime Is
Prevented From Ruling. This Is The Kind Of Political Crisis Needed At This
Moment In History. It Has Happened
Before, And It Can Happen Again”.
“This Massive Outpouring And Uprising Of Millions Must Be Built Through
Ongoing, And Increasing, Acts Of Defiance And Resistance, In Every Corner Of
Society. We Propose That This Month Officially Begin With Acts Of Resistance On
December 19, The Day Of The Electoral College Voting And Extend To The
Inauguration”.
This, taken from a website that essentially is calling for the
overthrow of the Trump administration. This initiative, led by terrorists,
communists, Marxists and every other “ist”, is a blatant call to action which
should be of concern for  all Americans. One of its leaders is former
Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. The same Bill Ayers responsible for
the bombings of the New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, the Capitol
building in 1971, and the Pentagon in 1972.
In addition to Communist thugs like Cornel West, and Charles
Dix, Muslims have also called for a revolution in America….
Somewhere behind Oz’s curtain are other groups drooling for their
chance to cause
chaos
in cities across America. Groups like Black Lives Matter, Mpower Change, a Muslim grassroots group, and
ANSWER (The Act
Now to Stop War & End Racism) are just some of the groups that have sought
permits to protest the day of the inauguration. MPower Change, founded by
Arab/Hamas supporter Linda
Sarsour
is also part of the Women’s March, to be held on January 21. [I
gather that the “M” in Mpower stands for Muslim.]

Veritas,
the Roman goddess of truth,
who
hid in a well, in time
to
emerge with the truth

James O’Keefe and his Veritas operatives
revealed a plot to stop
or sabotage Trump’s  inauguration

with various dangerous actions that technically qualify for a designation of
terrorism. President Trump owes him and his organization a great nod of thanks.
With luck, the people recorded in the “brainstorming” session in a pizza parlor
by now have been arrested and charged with conspiracy.

Black Lives Matter should be dissolved as
well as CAIR and ICNA and ISNA and the Muslim American Society, and all their
Muslim Brotherhood affiliates should be crushed and their heads charged with
treason and being domestic advocates of “change” to a totalitarian society and
government in America. If anyone deserves a Medal of Freedom, it is O’Keefe.
Black Lives Matter and Islam have a natural
affinity, born particularly of the NOI’s cracked brain anti-white and anti-Semitism.
The Nation of Islam and creatures like the former pastor of Barack Obama, Jeremiah
“God Damn America” Wright are
all cut from the same vicious, anti-life cloth.
To my knowledge, BLM has had nothing to say
about the murder
rate in Chicago
, most of whose victims, including children, were black at
the hands of gun-toting black gang members. Apparently, the lives of black
murder victims do not matter. It is only the deaths of whites and policemen
that matter.
The BLM site avers: “The call for Black lives to matter is a rallying
cry for ALL Black lives striving for liberation.”
The “liberation” of blacks from black
gangsters is not on Black Lives Matter’s agenda. However, if you strive for
your freedom from BLM terror, you risk being killed, regardless of your
skin color. That fits into BLM’s program.

  1. Tom

    A very good piece from Mr. Cline.

  2. An eye opener

    Radical Farrakhan-nists and Fee-Palestine bigots:
    Do Brown Black Lives matter…if they're Israelis?

    BLACK, BROWN, WHITE, YELLOW ISRAELIS

    Since color has become a language somehow, and anti-Israel bigots distort, then let's remind facts, most Israelis are "brown," in terms of stats. You have also many Ethiopian Jews.

    No wonder the propagandists will never show democratic multiracial Israel in day to day lives.

    Or elaborate on anti-black racism in the Goliath Arab world. Though all non Arabs have been through racism in that world.

    SECURITY VS RACISTS

    But of course Israeli security concerns are just that. Unrelated to any "color" or "race." Actually, speaking of racism, yes, Arab Muslim attackers target only Jews. Talk about real racism.

    BACKGROUND ON HIJACKING TERMINOLOGY

    True, hijacking of term 'it's racism," is as old as Palestine propaganda emerged by holocaust denier Issa Nakhleh who began in June-17-1949 the "like the Nazis and worse than nazis" line (and by Nov-14-1972 said all 6,000,000 were alive and Hitler "didn't" kill, and represented 'Muslim Congress' at Holocaust deniers convention in 1981), then picked up in 1960 by Nazi Tacuara saluter Ahmad Shukairy who by Oct-17-1961 added that garbage-touch apartheid slur too and questioned Catholic Uruguayan rep. Enrique Fabregat's loyalty, stating because he's (supposedly) a Jew. And both, of course were Hitler's ally ex-mufti Islamic leader al-Husseini avid fans. With Shukairy his aide.

    Speaking of ex Mufti's admirers… Sufi Abdul Hamid, infamous 'Black Hitler' in NY who called to drive out Italians and Jews in the 1929-30, was also his admirer.

    RE FARAKHANNISTS & FAKE "PRO-"

    One might begin to argue there is such a thing as "pro Palestine", (only) when Farrakhan linked Ilhan Omar / Linda Sarsour / Rashida Tlaib will have a routine of decrying Arab Muslim suffering when it's not in context of Israel (who has been facing existential threat ever since) but suffering when by Arab Muslim entities. One would then hear about a real en-masse massacre. Such as hundreds of thousands in Syria, current example. And if they begin to do anything along the line, then no lip service please. But with that same "passion" as in fake "sympathy" played at the 'other' case.

    The absentee reason is clear. Self explanatory. Because pro Palestine is a cover for anti Israel and often anti ALL Jews.

    A note re L Farrakhan, that guy with his "blue eyes are the devil," when he uttered his "termites" venom, his genocidal hint was clear under the veil. For more about Dehumanization in radical Islamic Arab or even mainstream racist "Palestinian" education and sermons, search for "apes and pigs, Palestinians". Or see PalWatch and MEMRI.
