‘Black Lives Matter’ Movement Going Global to Combat ‘Gun-Toting White Racists’
Breitbart‘s Big Journalism covered a weekend event hosted by MSNBC’s Touré in Los Angeles that featured several “Black Lives Matter” leaders. The panelists convened on this first annual Politicon to discuss how the movement is going global and carrying its message of antipathy against white racism around the world.
“We’re trying to tie this to the global potential for this movement,” Touré began.
He then turned the microphone over to activist and BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who indicated that this movement was in no ways an accident, but “conscientiously crafted:”
We built not just a hashtag. It’s important people know that Black Lives Matter wasn’t just this hashtag that circulated around the internet, but we actually built an organization, a platform and a project out of the hashtag so here we are a couple of years later and the hashtag movement has gone global.
Cullors, as noted in the report and covered here atTruthRevolt, was part of a disruption at the progressive Netroots Nation event this summer in which she jumped up and shouted things like, “If I die in police custody, avenge my death by any means necessary,” “burn everything down,” and “rise the f*** up.” Her comments hadn’t improved by Saturday when she told Touré that Fox News viewers are “gun-toting white racists.”
