Despite the false media narrative, the Black Lives Matter movement is a very partisan and political organization hell-bent on demonizing Americans who are Republicans, conservative, or right-leaning. Its Twitter account implied that Republican Party candidates and its supporters are “white supremacists” after the Georgia U.S. Senate runoff elections last week.
The organization’s Twitter account tweeted congratulations to the Democratic Party candidates Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff while simultaneously implying Republicans are “white supremacists.” “White supremacists will not steal our joy,” BLM announced on Twitter. “Yesterday we made history when we elected our first Black and Jewish U.S. Senators from Georgia. Let there be no doubt: Black voters and organizers did that. Congratulations to Senators-elect @reverendwarnock and @ossoff.”
If Black Lives Matter is an allegedly apolitical movement, why did its Twitter account post blatantly partisan and pro-Democratic Party content? It also leads to other questions, such as why the media ignored the political bent of the organization and whether the media was complicit in covering up the organization’s true political ambitions.
For Black Lives Matter to preach equality and police reform on one hand, while condemning at least half of the country as alleged white supremacists, is hypocritical and disingenuous. The tweet is another example of Black Lives Matter’s hypocrisy and the media’s false narrative about the movement’s ambitions.
But this comes as no surprise because the organization has been posting pro-Democratic Party content in 2020. For months, Black Lives Matter demanded a meeting with the incoming presidential administration under President-elect Joe Biden and his vice president-elect, Kamala Harris. As far as we can tell, no such meetings have occurred, yet.
As background, Democratic Party Senate candidates Rev. Warnock and Jon Ossoff defeated Republican incumbent Sens. Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in a closely-contested election. It was the first time that the state of Georgia sent a black Senator to Washington, D.C. in its history, and the election handed control of the U.S. Senate to the Democratic Party.
