The co-founder of the controversial Black Lives Matter movement rejected former Vice President Joe Biden as a presidential candidate, arguing that he is part of a system that she calls “violent white supremacy.”
This is Dr. Melina Abdullah, who is a professor at California State University. Abdullah has a history of, among other things, being prosecuted for assaulting an LAPD officer during the BLM protests, according to the alternative media outlet The Blaze, on Oct. 5.
The BLM, which claims to represent African Americans, was strengthened as a movement beginning on May 26, the day after the death of African American George Floyd in police custody, and has since led most of the riots in U.S. cities.
For Abdullah, both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, who are candidates for the presidency, represent a part of society that is not acceptable to her.
“People are feeling dismayed that the choices are between, you know, a violent white supremacist and another person who represents that same system,” Abdullah said, without specifying which people she was referring to.
Thus, 91% of the 637 riots in the United States between May 26 and Sept. 12 were attended by the BLM movement, according to a study published by the Daily Caller on Sept. 17.
African American civil rights attorney Leo Terrell strongly criticized the BLM movement and its growing influence in the Democratic Party.
Terrell defined the BLM in July, saying, “It’s a very extreme organization that really only cares if a police officer is involved in a murder. What bothers me more than anything else, if you look at their manifesto, it is extremist.
He also denied that BLM spoke for all African Americans, “I can assure you that African Americans in these Democratic cities want law and order.”
The website Circling the News noted that Abdullah is a supporter of African American activist Louis Farrakhan, who has been characterized as anti-white, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBT.
However, among the founders of BLM Patrisse Cullors identifies as gay, Alicia Garza is married to a transgendered man, and Opal Tometi does not specify, but these facts seem to directly contradict Farrakhan.
Cullors frames BLM within Marxist ideology, as she argues in the following video.
As for Abdullah, who is considered African American, she is the daughter of John Reimann, a retired union organizer and a self-proclaimed Trotskyist. Leon Trotsky was a Russian politician and revolutionary of Jewish origin.
His paternal grandfather, Gunter, was born into a bourgeois German-Jewish family and was a famous Marxist economist and part of the communist opposition to Hitler’s rise to power in Germany, according to Circling the News.
BLM is part of the most radical wing of the Democratic Party, and vice presidential candidate, Kamala Harris seems to play a decisive role in politics, especially if Biden becomes president.
Harris, in addition to supporting the BLM, believes that the riots should continue even after the Nov. 3 elections.
“They are very important,” Harris said of the protests, “and everybody be careful, because they are not going to stop. They’re not going to stop before election day in November, and they’re not going to stop after election day. And that should be … everyone should take note of that.”
Harris made this statement to leftist journalist Stephen Colbert in mid-June, according to the video.
