This Poll goes with a thread in General Politics -- five minutes was not enough time to post the poll after the thread was started.

BLM is a socialist, radical organization. The race war is a means to an end and that end is revolution.

Exactly how is BLM trying to start a race war? If anything, if a race war starts it surely isn't because of BLM.

The protest in and of itself is fine. We do need to find a way to properly police the violence that is resulting from scavengers, thugs, and plants. But BLM in and of itself is fine. People have the right to assembly and protest and to petition government for redress.

BLM is so different depending on the area you're in. I was part of a BLM protest (by force) because I was driving on the freeway and protestors marched onto the roadway and blocked us in lol. I liked being there, and felt like I was part of some kind of 60s civil rights movement, even though I was there by force.

This is a far cry, though, from what I've seen reported on TV, with BLM protestors destroying city blocks and lighting cop cars on fire.

There is virtually no national centralized BLM organisation. Even the website is full of vague Pablum statements as opposed to policy. There will be no 'race war'.

They have already started a war, but its not a race war. Its an ideological war and I know many blacks who dont support them and many whites who do. Things are gonna get much worse before they get better.

BLM is following the same old style sheet. They start with a grievance, make noise, let radicals take over and start burning, looting, and rioting, and calling for an end to “insert this-and-that here”. Eventually Joe Black dude can’t even get on a bus because everyone is afraid of him. Rinse. Repeat.

There are protesters, and then there are rioters, and looters. While some protesters may turn into rioters given sufficient provocation , most rioters decided on their own that turning over cars and throwing bricks and brawling might be a nice way to relieve some tension on a hot day after hanging around their house for 3 months. In other words, a lot of asshats that had nothing to do with BLM movement, decided this was as good a reason as any to fight with cops or loot some stores.

The problem is not BLM.. it is the KKK and Neo Nazi scum.. always has been. They have started multiple race wars and conducted massacres and attempted genocide based on race.

marxist and it's not so much about race as it is destabilizing the USA under the guise of a race war, and overturning the government.

well your reaction and the options you pose in your poll sure are contributing to it that "fearmongering" demonization sort of way demonstrating a complete lack of understanding of BLM, conflating it with Antifa, and conflating it with rioters.

Perhaps you noticed they picked up the dude that started the mayhem in Minneapolis during the protests - he was a Hell's Angel AND a member of an aryan prison gang. The boogaloo boys have been arrested across the country for either plotting or attempting or committing violence.

Seems as soon as the white supremacists and racist scumbags figured out that the BLM marches were full of white people and they could "blend in" it didn't take long to mobilize.

Why is it so many on the right confuse cause with effect and vice versa?

What kind of government does the KKK wish to install once our Republic and capitalism is destroyed?

What post hoc fallacies are you referring to specifically?

LOL "mostly peaceful" right?

That is like saying the blind date was mostly pleasant until the guy forcibly raped the young woman. But the conversation at dinner was very enjoyable otherwise.

But assembly and protest to petition government for redress is simply not what BLM is doing, though many a left-winger has been sucked into thinking that's what they're doing. No, BLM is quite clearly up to something else .. and the substantiating article in the related post lays it out quite convincingly that BLM is in reality fanning a race war: 1980's Liberal Activist Issues Dire Warning That BLM Is Fanning A Race War!

Yeahhh thats what im getting as well. The usual complaint about the concept of white privilege and the hyperbole around it is so 2014 anti social justice cliches.

They aren't up to anything. The majority are protesting, and that's fine. You cannot call down your goons because people are protesting. At heart, that's what this is. And while we do need to address the rioting and violence that's resulting, it doesn't mean that the base protest needs to be policed. That's just commie level fascism right there.

The early results of this poll show exactly what I expected.... The left endorses senseless violence, rioting, looting, attempted murder, and destruction of property... Oh, and they do want a race war.

The substantiating article in the related post lays it out quite convincingly that BLM is most certainly fanning a race war: 1980's Liberal Activist Issues Dire Warning That BLM Is Fanning A Race War!

Since the article has made it crystal clear that's what BLM is doing, if it isn't stopped immediately then those tired of worrying if the armed BLM mod witch hunt is going to target and "cancel" them .. will prepare an armed defense, for sure.

Once the first battle shots are fired, the war is on, and we'll have the damnedest time getting it stopped!
