"When you put it terms of 'Black lives matter,' that implies that white lives, and Asian lives, and Eskimo lives, and every other kind of lives don't matter. So we get the feeling that if this is all about some sort of race test that we can't hope to pass to your satisfaction because of who we are, not how we act, then screw you buddy, we're not gonna play that game. So the rest of us get the feeling that if our lives don't matter then why the hell should we care if you think 'black lives matter?' And it's just a little ways from there for the rest of us to conclude that black lives DON'T matter either. . . So if you wanted a slogan that the Klan could understand and use to recruit with, well, brother, that's it. So that slogan is either the worst kind of stupidity or the bastard who thought it up is trying to separate you from your natural allies or get you killed, or both. I can't think of another slogan more calculated to get an American Hitler elected, and I HATE Nazis. . . And I'll tell you something else . . .(W)hen I see these black racists of Farrakhan's bunch talking about wanting a race war I'd say they haven't looked at how the numbers stack up. Because let me tell you something about white folks at their worst. When they get scared that people are trying to kill them just because of who they are, when they get pissed off along racial lines, they don't tear up their own neighborhoods or burn down their own communities like y'all do. They come to the neighborhoods of the people who threaten them and burn THEIR communities down and kill THEM. They have burned down whole CONTINENTS. And if you don't believe me, just ask the Indians." -- Mike Vanderboegh.
I am on record as to my opinions of "Black Lives Matter."
Now comes an analyst who believes that this will bring about electoral defeat for the Dems: "Hillary and the Dems have a #blacklivesmatter problem."
This is perhaps true, but beside the point for those who promote the BLM movement. They are uncaring about short term political consequences, focusing rather on the end game (commies are real good at that). The point is to foment racial war in the streets so as to win in the larger agenda of destroying the social fabric of the country so that people will turn to them out of fear. This was the sum and substance of the manipulation of the street riots in the 60s and 70s. It is also a strategy that fits well into the long-term plans of the Klan and neoNazis.
Why do you think Hitler organized the Brown shirts and sent them out into the streets to do battle with the socialists and communists? To create chaos that would frighten the German people into turning to him. And, oh by the way, it worked. Try to think like your enemy thinks and you'll be a lot less surprised when such things happen. Lifson is analyzing this crap using the old paradigm of "Only Elections Matter." Collectivists of every stripe understand that this is no longer true, that we are moving (indeed, THEY are moving the country) into the heretofore undiscovered country of complete societal breakdown, Balkanization and destruction of the rule of law. It is there, and only there, that their own cannibal proclivities can be sated by the feasting upon the dead corpse of the Founders' Republic and their own enemies bodies.
