I’m sorry, those that know me know that I’m strongly anti-racist and have beforehand written (positively) concerning the American Black Lives Matter (BLM) motion, however issues which have occurred within the final two years have dramatically modified the attitude.

It’s apparent that the US is a racist nation, however what is going on at this time is sadly not a genuinely common revolt however moderately a manipulation of occasions to resolve the present energy battle inside the American elite.

I’m certain that neither Malcolm X nor Martin Luther King would have supported this sort of protest, not as a result of they’d settle for in any respect the discrimination and violence in opposition to blacks and minorities in the US, however as a result of the protests are creating in a sectarian sense to divide the impoverished inhabitants of the US and provoke a civil conflict.

This isn’t what these two nice leaders needed.

What do I care as an anti-racist that they throw away a statue of Columbus (who by the way was not the worst of the conquerors) when the truth is these teams, if their dedication was actually critical, must be preventing the presently prevailing system of racism and colonialism by means of which the US oppresses the remainder of the world?

If they’re anti-racists and anti-colonialists, they need to demand an finish to the funding of the Zionist State of Israel, or an finish to the colonization of Puerto Rico, or of the blockades of Cuba and Venezuela, or the lifting of the evil Nica Act, or, for instance, the dismantling of the colonial construction of the Group of American States, a residing instance of US colonialism and Atlanticism in our day, which routinely does such notorious issues because the shameful coup d’état in opposition to the democratically elected indigenous authorities of Evo Morales Ayma in Bolivia.

Don’t suppose that we in Africa, Asia and Latin America have forgotten the 500 or 600 years of European colonialism. However that very same colonialism is now killing us at this time, not centuries in the past. It’s at this time that we should cease the genocide.

You cannot be antiracist with out demanding the top of a world financial order that feeds on human flesh and is the premise of the economies of the US, Canada and Western Europe.

If one is critical about the issue of racism, one should essentially be anti-imperialist. One can’t be anti-racist and settle for residing within the shadow of imperialism, just because it’s only inside that oppressive and inhuman construction that racism is sensible.

The whole lot else is simply excuses, empty speak making an attempt to masks the true nature of energy relations on the planet. Any significantly anti-racist motion should essentially be politically impartial from imperial pursuits, and if it’s a well-informed motion it should additionally, of necessity, keep away from in any respect prices falling into the lure of sectarianism.

In distinction, Black Lives Matter receives (and willingly accepts) the complete assist of the Democratic Get together, whose religious chief Hillary Clinton must be held accountable for the crimes in opposition to humanity dedicated by the US in opposition to, amongst many others, the individuals of Libya. The place they used the racist card to destroy the one society with a real welfare state in North Africa. The one nation that made a critical proposal for the financial independence of the African continent by creating their very own regional foreign money and through the use of its monumental oil and fuel sources for the advantage of the African and Palestinian peoples.

In the event that they have been anti-racists, they need to be holding Joe Biden accountable, since he in addition to his son have been concerned within the US coup in Ukraine, which by the way was carried out with fascist teams skilled by…the US. Do you keep in mind final February 5, when Nancy Pelosi, head of the Democratic caucus, tore up Donald Trump’s State of the Union handle?

Effectively, there was part of that speech by Donald Trump wherein Nancy Pelosi applauded the entire time: It was when Trump introduced the anti-Venezuelan imperial puppet Juan Guaidó within the Senate, and when he devoted himself to attacking international locations like Cuba and Nicaragua by vindicating the racist and colonialist ideology of the Monroe Doctrine.

It’s unattainable behind all this to not see the assist that BLM demonstrations obtain from the Soros Open Society Basis, the Ford Basis, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, CNN, and many others. Since when has the avowed zionist Mark Zuckerberg been anti-racist and anti-colonialist?

All of them are the US energy elite, Wall Road, the military-industrial advanced (Normal Collin Powell, the identical one who lied concerning the Iraq conflict, spoke final week on the Democratic Conference), media energy (from Hollywood to Netflix), Massive Pharma that desires to place everybody in quarantine…these are the sectors that at this time, abruptly, have grow to be “anti-colonialists”. Isn’t that in any respect suspicious?

This isn’t merely a tactical alliance inside a strategy of battle. BLM has in observe grow to be a political gadget within the Democrats’ electoral technique.

The slogan of “anybody however Trump” is a silly one. Donald Trump, for all his hundreds of thousands, and his assist for the Nationwide Rifle Affiliation, and with all its reactionary values, is the truth is not in command in the US.

Certainly, Trump is a thorn within the facet of the American (and Western, and racist) energy elite who, earlier than being patriotic, are imperialist and globalist. That’s why for them a nationalist like Donald Trump, irrespective of how reactionary, is the mistaken man to guide the empire politically, and that’s why they need him out of energy.

And that’s why they inflame the road with Black Lives Matter, serving to to create an more and more paranoid, divisive setting within the US, the place there’s much less and fewer speak of social and financial rights for all and nearly solely speak of blacks versus whites or of carrying a masks or not.

What the US energy elite needs to do is kick over the desk of the present world order (which not fits them) and substitute it with the direct rule of multinational firms and the mass surveillance of all humanity.

They know very nicely that they can’t rescue the greenback, and that’s the reason they wish to destroy the world economic system as a way to stay masters and lords of the ensuing ruins. That’s the actual plan.

Neither Malcolm X nor Martin Luther King can be supporting this.

Malcolm X proposed that black communities ought to arm themselves to defend themselves and grow to be impartial by constructing their very own black energy. He would have laughed at anybody who proposed some type of revolt to remove the facility of the white man. He wasn’t serious about that, he was within the energy of black individuals.

And Martin Luther King, then again, wouldn’t have supported this both due to two issues: Firstly, as a result of he was a pacifist, and secondly (and I believe extra importantly) as a result of he needed an incredible broad common coalition of black and white individuals to construct a extra simply society.

But it surely’s not a preferred coalition that they’re constructing in America, however the plague of the division between “blacks” and “Nazis,” between the “good guys” who wish to throw Trump out and the “evil and ignorant”, the “deplorables” as Hillary Clinton referred to as them, who assist him.

It might come as a shock to some, and for that motive it’s price stressing, as a result of CNN doesn’t present it: Black and Latino individuals additionally go to the demonstrations in assist of President Trump, not essentially as a result of they’re “Nazis” or “racists” or “illiterate”, however as a result of they should exit and work to earn their residing, identical to our individuals right here in Nicaragua, whereas a collection of fanatical politicians within the States of the Union wish to maintain them locked up with the quarantine.

These fanatical Democrat politicians wish to lead the US right into a civil conflict, one tailor-made to imperialist pursuits. And they’re making an attempt to tug the remainder of the world into it as nicely. Who may be so naive as to consider that the Democratic elites, with the assist of the Republican previous guard, gained’t go to conflict with China tomorrow? It isn’t “loopy Trump” threatening humanity, it’s the empire getting ready the destruction of the world.

Let’s not fall into the lure they’re setting for us.
