Black lives matter. Sane people agree on this point. An organization who could take up the mantle of reminding our fellow Americans that Black lives matter would be a good and noble thing.
Unfortunately someone has already coopted the name and are using it to endorse everything under the sun except what matters to Black lives.
After violence erupted once again in the Middle East, Black Live Matter – the fundraising operation – decided to take a break from promoting other very important things in the struggle against racism (like ending the nuclear family, destroying patriarchy, forcing women to accept boys into girls sports, etc.) and dip into international criticism. The controversial organization delivered a tweet on Monday expressing support for Palestinians and referring to Israel’s borders as “settler colonialism.”
“Black Lives Matter stands in solidarity with Palestinians. We are a movement committed to ending settler colonialism in all forms and will continue to advocate for Palestinian liberation. ( always have. And always will be ),

As the post suggests, BLM has long been an advocate against the existence of Israel. They are known for their anti-semitic positions, including their official support for the BDS (boycott, divest, sanction) against the only democratic country in the Middle East.
No surprise considering BLM is an admittedly Marxist organization. And it isn’t surprising that they would unite in support of Palestine’s official terrorist group, Hamas. Game recognizes game.
The national organization was joined in their condemnation of the freest country in the Middle East by other local groups. For a group that constantly tries to sell us on the raging inequities of a domestic system they themselves thrive within they sure do spend a lot of time discussing what does on within the borders of other countries.
Tyler, BLMLA demands the police commission #FireChiefMoore or Chief Moore resign and shamed the commission for cutting people off for voicing concerns about the LAPD ties to Israeli military. #LAPCFails
