America’s melting pot is boiling and about to spill over. So who are those stirring it? What groups are turning up the heat? Everyday a new organization joins the “resistance” to push the country in a direction far from its original course. On October 28, 2017 in Shelbyville and Murfreesboro TN, White Lives Matter and other groups will be holding a rally, with counter protests that may all incite violence. But what about those attending who claim to be peaceful, and only want to express their disapproval and condemnation against hate? Nonsense.
Do those same “peaceful protesters” attend Antifa or BLM rallies to condemn what they stand for? No they do not. Why? Many of those “peaceful protesters”, including the founder of “Murfreesboro Loves”, Abdou Kattih, are from the Islamic communities of Shelbyville and Murfreesboro who actually support groups like Black Lives Matter, the same BLM individuals that caused chaos with their riots in Ferguson and Baltimore. The same BLM that marched in NYC chanting “what do we want? dead cops”.
But the “peaceful” Muslims support black lives matter. Nihad Awad, the executive director of the Council on America Islamic Relations (CAIR) aka Hamas, who has visited the Murfreesboro mosque on several occasions admits “their cause is our cause”
Abdou Kattih, a leader in the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro is urging those who are against hate to attend this potentially explosive event on Oct 28, so they can experience the hate he and his community go through everyday. Nice try Mr. Kattih, try as you might, the victim card is old. However, it is really disgraceful Kattih is urging residents of Murfreesboro to attend this just so he feels vindicated, especially since his community supports BLM.
The same Muslims preaching love are supporting those who hate. Don’t be baited into attending an event where violence is most likely to occur just to prove a point. This isn’t the time to declare your turf, stay home and give law enforcement one less person to try to protect, and certainly don’t attend to support those who claim to be peaceful yet support those who are not.
Below is a breakdown of who’s who in the fight, so far.
Groups building a new mass civil rights movement, embracing those to be considered “marginalized” or oppressed.
Black lives matter– believes in “creating a world free of anti-Blackness, where every Black person has the social, economic, and political power to thrive.” While their main goal is to preserve the black culture, donations from white billionaires, specifically George Soros, has pushed them to promote “globalism, queer affirming, diversity and restorative justice.”
BAMN- By Any Means Necessary. “An organization in which black, Latina/o, Native American, Asian Pacific American, Arab American, and other minority leaders play a full and prominent role. BAMN is committed to making real the ideal of “government of the people, by the people, for the people.” But democracy, too, must be a sham as long as the fundamental inequalities of poverty, racism, and sexism deform the relations of political power along with access to educational and economic opportunities. Here again, America can only become what it should be through a national policy of affirmative action.
It’s Going Down- a “digital community center for anarchist, anti-fascist, autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements. Our mission is to provide a resilient platform to publicize and promote revolutionary theory and action.” Claiming they do not participate in actions, but rather provide social media support and promotion of events is not true, as they are organizing to stop a White Lives Matter rally in Shelbyville TN on Oct 28, 2017.
Group(s) Claiming to be anti-fascists, are anti-capitalism, often promoting and inciting violence
Antifa– A subset of the anarchist movement and focus on issues involving racism, sexism, and anti-Semitism, as well as other perceived injustices. Antifa has used violence repeatedly including property damage and physical violence. Local chapters, including Nashville and Knoxville are said to be participating in the Oct 28 counter protests.
Groups believing in White Supremacy, White Nationalism
White Lives Matter- white supremacy
The Nationalist Front – “The Nationalist Front is an umbrella organization to bring unity and solidarity to the White Nationalist movement in North America. This is an alliance between many diverse organizations which seek to better the cultural, economic, and demographic conditions of White Americans.”
National Socialist Movement- According to their website, they are the largest Nazi party operating in the U.S today, based in Minneapolis.
