This didn’t start with George Floyd, Chanelle Helm insists. Black Lives Matter just updated their list of demands for “white people” to comply with that Helm produced a couple years ago. To make the connection to George Soros a little less conspicuous, they used an independent group as a front. Concerned Citizens DC issued a list.
A front group to release the demands
George Soros is a little upset with the bad publicity he’s been getting lately. His name keeps coming up every time someone wonders who’s paying for the signs, the gasoline, and the media hype. When BLM put out a list of demands a couple years ago, the whole idea went down in flames so this time, they got a front group to release a polished press release with their real intentions glossed away. We know how they really feel from what Helm put out the last time.
“It started 600 years ago when white supremacy was a tool for destruction,” the leader of Louisville, Kentucky’s branch of Black Lives Matter said recently. People of color are simply at “the boiling point of that outrage and frustration.” Chanelle Helm is demanding an end to the “broken system of policing that disproportionately hurts people of color.”
If white people haven’t changed their minds in 600 years then its safe to assume that Black Lives Matter hasn’t changed theirs in the past two years. They still want the same things. In 2017 Helm wrote, “Commit to two things: Fighting white supremacy where and how you can (this doesn’t mean taking up knitting, unless you’re making scarves for black and brown kids in need), and funding black and brown people and their work.” White people, she insists should “give up the home you own to a black or brown family.”
Updated for the new situation
With better legal advice than what Ms. Helm had in 2017 and more funding to hire writers who can work without curse words, the updated list of demands was released Wednesday. Along with charges against all four officers in the George Floyd case and “justice for Breonna Taylor” they demand that marijuana be instantly decriminalized.
Ideas like civilian review boards and “nationwide commitment by police forces to end brutal practices” like choke holds, have been on the table for a long time. Minority protesters are now demanding that DC be declared a state.
They also want things to be nicer in prison and a private police force. One of their more interesting ones is they demand people get out and vote and fill out the census forms. Even they realize they don’t have much leverage. They start out “we demand that concerned citizens across this nation reflect that concern in spaces that will affect decision making.” Then they admit they don’t have a leg to stand on. “We encourage everybody to participate in the U.S. Census and to vote.”
They admit they have declared war. The ground had been stained with innocent black blood for centuries. We are fighting now for what America will be.” Even liberal leaning CBS got caught up in the frenzy when Friday’s version of CBS This Morning erupted into racially charged chaos. “Both the hosts and their left-wing guests repeatedly accused all white people of being born with racial ‘privilege’ and taught to be racist as children.” They demand we level the playing field.
