Civil-rights leader: Black Lives Matter 'angry, godless, hateful'
A black civil-rights activist is slamming Black Lives Matter, which has booed speakers off stage just for saying all lives matter, for its increasingly violent actions and radical rhetoric.
“The Black Lives Matter group is an evil group which is now being promoted as the next civil-rights movement,” said Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. “They are being held up as a good organization but they are no different from the KKK or the skinheads.”
Peterson, a WND columnist, is the author of the upcoming book “The Antidote” and the founder of the civil-rights organization BOND (Brotherhood Organization for a New Destiny.) Peterson was shocked at what he sees as the media’s consistent and dedicated support for what he called a “radical” group.
“Black Lives Matter is an angry, godless, hateful group being held up as something good,” Peterson charged. He believes the group is only being emboldened by what he sees as the total collapse of law enforcement in the face of increasingly aggressive activism.
In the latest incident, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was chased out of a town-hall meeting by screaming protesters who blocked his car and even jumped on its roof.
Despite the mayor being surrounded by law enforcement, protesters operated largely unimpeded, triumphantly chanting and screaming as the meeting was shut down.
“We have total chaos in our country today,” said Peterson. “The authorities have just backed down.”
