At the time of writing, “Black Lives Matter” (BLM) is more popular than the President of the United States, and not slightly more popular than the President, much more popular.
A survey by Rasmussen, a right-leaning pollster, found that 62% of likely voters now have a favorable opinion of BLM, and at the same time Rasmussen found that Donald Trump’s approval rating was at 43%, almost 20 points lower. Trump was not alone. BLM is far more popular than Joe Biden is too.
It’s more popular than America’s religious institutions. All of them.
it is more popular than the media, congress and big business. BLM is more popular by double digits than both the Democratic and Republican parties. It’s almost as popular as the U.S. military. It is much more popular than the Pope. The numbers are astounding, but the polls are not the only measure of it.
That is an ocean of people. Ask yourself the last time you saw a candidate for office draw a crowd like that?
The media, relentlessly fawning in their coverage, describe BLM as an ‘activist group’ or ‘protest movement’. But that is deception by understatement. BLM is not just a collection of marchers with signs, or a conventional political lobbyist like planned parenthood or the NRA, it’s not merely pressuring congress with a new set of laws, BLM is far more ambitious than that – its working to remake the World, and then to control it. It is indeed a political party.
As of today, BLM may be the most single powerful party in the United States. Nobody is willing to say that out loud, but politicians understand it perfectly well. If nothing else they understand power because they can smell it at great distances, and that’s why they are lining up to bow before “Black lives matter.”
None of which is a stretch for Democrats – they believe their long-term goals align with those with “black lives matter”, and they do – the toppling of the republic, and at times BLM function as an arm of the democratic party. More telling though, and more ominous, is the response from many Republicans. They’ve been happy to go along as well, or Mitt Romney’s case (a.k.a. Pierre Delecto), even chant the same slogans.
Mitt Romney is a former republican nominee for president. Let that sink in. If ever there was an indicator how powerful “Black Lives Matter” has become, you just saw it.
It is all pretty strange when you think about it; if the leaders of “Black Lives Matter” are political actors, and they are, then by definition you are allowed to have any opinion you want to have about them. If BLM wants to run the country, then therefore, you can freely criticize “Black Lives Matter.” Those are the rules of the democratic system, but not anymore. Imagine a world where you are punished for questioning the behavior of the president or for insulting your local mayor. You probably can’t imagine that because it’s too bizarre.
But that’s where we are right now. “Black Lives Matter” has changed the rules and here is the first new rule; no criticizing “Black Lives Matter.” You can be fired from your job if you disobey. Many people have been.
But BLM is even more powerful than that. It has single-handedly revised our moral framework. Yes “black lives do matter, that is a statement of fact, and no decent person doubts that it is true, because it is. It’s true precisely because every life matters. We are all human beings, everyone of us. We have souls, skin color is irrelevant to moral value. Until recently, this was considered obvious (while I am aware that the initial message of BLM was not that by default, other lives matter less – it certainly feels as though the movement is now really saying so much more).
The concept that all lives matter is an idea that forms the basis of the Christian faith. It is the entire premise behind the United States’ founding documents, and yet, suddenly, thanks to “Black Lives Matter,” you can no longer say it out loud. Affirming the fundamental equality of all people is now considered ‘hate speech’, and you can be fired for saying it, again many have been. This is a dangerous moment.
How did we get here? In a word, quickly. As recently as December 2019, before the riots, most Americans did not hold high approval levels of “Black Lives Matter.” The group was defined in the public mind by moments like this this;
After this scene went viral the usual liars immediately swooped in to pretend it never happened. The then president of the Southern Poverty Law Center, Richard Cohen (resigned for conduct issues, and after it was discovered that the SPLC had hidden millions of dollars in the Cayman Islands. To date, the SPLC has not explained why a nonprofit organization would need to hide money outside of the country.
The Southern Poverty law Center (SPLC) issued an entire op-ed ordering the public not to consider “Black Lives Matter” a hate group, but people could see the truth for themselves – the videos were online. In fact, a lot of facts about “Black Lives Matter” still reside on the internet. They have not yet been scrubbed. Yet.
There is also unanswered questions as to why 99.64% of BLM’s “Defund The Police” donations went to Joe Biden’s campaign Via ActBlue.
BLM supporters are also asking why the “Minnesota Freedom Fund”, a bail fund service for arrested rioters that pulled in $20 million in donations in only a week – some of which came from Hollywood celebrities – why only $200,000 of the total $35 million collected since Floyd’s death has been spent on bail.
An Atlanta BLM Founder was recently arrested after spending $200,000 in Donations on personal expenditure. 32 year old Sir Maejor Page was arrested by the FBI late September 2020 on fraud and money laundering charges, after he used BLM donations on “food, dining, entertainment, clothing, furniture, a home security system, tailored suits and accessories,” according to Fox News.
But it gets worse. Go to the website for the Black Futures Lab, a venture of Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, and click on the “Donate” button. It will ask you to send your money to an obscure tax-exempt organization, the Chinese Progressive Association, explaining that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.”

Two years ago, Alicia Garza created the Black Futures Lab, the organization that the Chinese Progressive Association funds, as yet another asset in the vast Garza empire. By the looks of it, it acts as a sort of a lobbying arm of this empire.
As Mike Gonzales wrote at City Journal last month, the BLM organizations have been the nerve center of this year’s protests: “They have been laying the groundwork for years, carefully cultivating a network of groups that could organize protests when the moment came and amplify the message through social media.”
Communist China has also put its vast propaganda apparatus to work in support of the mayhem that has wreaked havoc in American cities this year. China would of course see weakening of U.S. society and the country in general as advantageous, however receiving direct funding for one of Garza’s ventures from a group as closely associated with the Chinese government is something else entirely.
Who Is the Chinese Progressive Association?
The Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) was founded in San Francisco in 1972 during the height of Mao’s cultural Revolution, and today it also has a very active chapter in Boston. From its start, it has been a promoter of the People’s Republic of China in the U.S.
According to an authoritative 2009 Stanford University paper tracing its early days to the present, and which can be found on Marxist.org;
The CPA began as a Leftist, pro-People’s Republic of China organization, promoting awareness of mainland China’s revolutionary thought and workers’ rights, and dedicated to self-determination, community control, and ‘serving the people.’Stanford University
“…worked with other pro-PRC groups within the U.S. and San Francisco Bay Area … Support for the PRC was based on the inspiration the members drew from what they saw as a successful grassroots model that presented a viable alternative to Western capitalism.”
CPA co-founder Lydia Lowe also spoke at the event, reminding her audience that “McCarthyism is behind us. The Cold War is behind us.” In an essay she authored with other people on the Marxist revolutionary site LeftRoots last year, Lowe sounded as though she wanted to start another Cold War, writing that she wanted Asians to play a role in creating a “revolutionary strategy” that would achieve a “fundamentally different society.”
The CPA drew praise from China’s mouthpiece China Daily just a few weeks ago, for taking part again in BLM demonstrations in San Francisco.
The BLM Empire
Alicia Garza sits atop a worldwide revolutionary empire, starting with the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation she founded, which now has 15 chapters in the U.S. and several more all over Canada, Australia, and Europe. As Foreign Affairs wrote in its September/October issue, “Today, BLM has a global network of dozens of chapters. This number will likely grow exponentially in the coming years.”
Black Lives Matter is coordinated nationwide by an umbrella group called the Movement for Black Lives (M4BL). Several Liberation Road comrades work through M4BL, including former FRSO national organizer Cazembe Jackson, and East Tennessee-based activist Ash-Lee Henderson. M4BL has been coordinating protests across the nation through regular Zoom conference calls. Zoom is connected to the CCP.
It’s clear why the Chinese Progressive association would sponsor a new enterprise by Garza; they espouse the same desire for world communism. Two years ago, Garza created the Black Futures Lab, the organization that the Chinese Progressive Association funds, as yet another asset in the vast Garza empire. By the looks of it, it acts as a sort of a lobbying arm of this empire.
“Today, we are launching the Black Futures Lab as a way to mobilize around our needs, hopes, and dreams,” Garza told Colorlines in an emailed statement. “For too long, people have spoken for us and perpetuated false representations of the issues that drive our votes.”Alicia Garza
