The Black Lives Matter organization can always be counted on to do the wrong thing. They say that they are for the rights of the oppressed, but when they see people fighting an oppressor with a leftist political bent, BLM consistently supports the oppressor.
It’s clear: Black lives matter to BLM only to the extent that they can exploit them for leftist political causes.
If there was any doubt in your mind about that before, a recent report of BLM’s stance on the protests in Cuba should give you clarity about this whole issue. Lorenz Duchamps writes,
Black Lives Matter has accused the U.S. government for the current unrest in Cuba while praising the communist regime for its “solidarity” by granting “black revolutionaries” asylum.
The Marxist group has faced fierce backlash after posting a statement on Wednesday amid protests that have erupted in multiple cities across the nation, with Cubans calling for greater freedoms and an end to the communist dictatorship.
In the note that was posted to its social media profiles, the group condemned the 1962 U.S. embargo, claiming it was instituted with the “explicit intention” to destabilize Cuba and “undermine the right of Cubans to choose their own government.”
“Black Lives Matter condemns the U.S. federal government’s inhumane treatment of Cubans and urges it to immediately lift the economic embargo,” the group wrote. “This cruel and inhumane policy, instituted with the explicit intention of destabilizing the country and undermining Cubans’ right to choose their own government, is at the heart of Cuba’s current crisis.”
The largest protest the communist-controlled country has seen in decades erupted over the weekend after citizens moved to the streets against ongoing shortages of food and other goods, high prices, and power cuts, amid a deep economic crisis in the country, made worse by CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic-related lockdowns.
BLM says that Cubans should have the right to choose their own government (and I agree with that sentiment), but, then, BLM says, in essence, that Cubans should not have the right to choose their own government if that government isn’t communist. What does BLM think these protests are about if not for the right to choose a different government other than the one that has completely failed them?
But that kind of intellectual honesty is something that we’ll likely never see from this group of people who have a religious devotion to the failed ideology of communism.
