Black Lives Matter has recently released a new list of “demands” — seven in total.
The first demand is to have former President Trump “immediately convicted in the United States Senate.” Apparently not satisfied with that, BLM also demands that Trump be “banned from holding elected office in the future.”
Secondly, BLM claims that more than half of the Republican representatives and senators “stoked Trump’s conspiracy theories and encouraged the white supremacists to take action to overturn the election.” Thus, they should be expelled from Congress for their “dangerous and traitorous actions,” and they should also be barred from “seeking another office.”
Third on their list of demands is for a full investigation to be launched to figure out what ties the white supremacists have with the Capitol Police, law enforcement, and the military. Following up with their second demand, BLM claims that “Trump has always used his digital media platforms recklessly and irresponsibly to spread lies and disinformation.” Thus, they say he should be permanently banned because “he must be stopped from encouraging his mob and further endangering our communities, even after the inauguration.”
Fifth on the radical leftists’ list is to defund the police. This one isn’t surprising. After all, they’ve been chanting it since they began their “peaceful protests,” but why is it only fifth on their list?
The next thing on the list is that the government “should protect righteous protest and stay focused on the real issue: rooting out white supremacy.” According to the BLM thugs, “There are enough laws, resources, and intelligence, but.. they were not used.. to stop the coup. Our elected officials must uncover why.”
Lastly, BLM demands that the BREATHE Act be passed. They claim that “we cannot reform an institution built upon white supremacy” and thus need a “new, radical approach to public safety and community investment” — the BREATHE Act.
Despite the name of the group, the demands that BLM listed don’t appear to make the lives of Black Americans better. I wonder why?
