There is something very troubling about our government…

In response to Presidential Executive Order 13985, “Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government,” the Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, issued guidance and an action request to “all diplomatic and consular posts” concerning the commemoration of the death of George Floyd.

The language contained in the directive included:

“May 25 marks the one-year commemoration of George Floyd’s murder. For 9 minutes and 29 seconds, the world saw firsthand how police officers brutally took the life of an unarmed Black man in the United States. These viral images ignited national and global Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests and demonstrations. This tragedy joined a long line of Black men and women who have suffered at the hands of police brutality. These national and global protests sparked a movement to confront systems perpetuating deep-seated inequities rooted in colonialism and the oppression of racial, tribal, ethnic, and other minority communities. Mr. Floyd’s murder prompted an international outcry to seek racial justice and equity by dismantling systemic racism and eradicating police brutality affecting communities of color, most acutely, people of African descent.”

[OCS: I find it abhorrent that a shit-weasel like Anthony Blinken would perpetuate the divisive actions of his former boss, Barack Obama, and openly disparage the United States and its law-abiding citizens on the world stage.

I find his characterization of the events surrounding the death of a low-life criminal, who was predisposed to die from a fatal-level of Fentanyl, deeply disturbing. Especially in light of an overwhelming number of anonymous first-responders and soldiers who died honorably while serving their country and fellow man. 

Truth-be-told, if systemic racism did exist in our nation, it would have been perpetuated by the Democrat Party, the party of slavery, segregation, racism, Jim Crow, the KKK, and which fought against the civil rights movement. In fact, the only systemic racism I can plainly see is the oppression of educational opportunities for people of color who are deprived of their choice of schools and are forced to exist in a corrupt democrat-designed educational infrastructure that indoctrinates rather than educates. The Democrats control all of our major institutions and therefore are responsible for any systemic institutional racism]

“Background of Black Lives Matter Movement – According to the Office of U.S. Special Counsel, ‘As a social movement, BLM gained prominence following a series of high-profile killings of Black Americans in 2013 and 2014 and, in particular, the acquittal of George Zimmerman for the killing of Trayvon Martin. The movement appears to have begun organically on social media. The phrase ‘Black Lives Matter’ then became a rallying cry for protesters and organizations seeking to raise awareness of, and respond to, issues associated with racism in the United States. BLM is thus an umbrella term for a constellation of ideas, objectives, and groups. There is no ‘leader’ of the BLM movement. Rather, there are numerous organizations that use BLM terminology to varying degrees, including some whose names include the phrase ‘Black Lives Matter.’ Of these, the most prominent is the Black Lives Matter Global Network.”

[OCS: Most of the deaths became “high profile” due to the actions of a progressively biased mainstream media. George Zimmerman was an ordinary citizen trying to keep his community safe. Trayvon Martin was a drug-addled combative thug who attacked Zimmerman. Because the mainstream media initially believed that Zimmerman was white, the affair spiraled out of control and was highly politicized.

As for BLM itself, the “leaders” are self-described trained Marxists and the organization is anything but organic. The organization and its subsidiaries are communist front groups dedicated to destroying America, its economy and culture, from within and replacing capitalism with a form of communism.

It is abhorrent that The United States, the shining light of freedom in the world, should openly fete those who want to destroy the U.S. Constitution and turn American into a Chinese Communist-style surveillance state where even thoughts and ideas are highly censored at the point of a gun.]

“Participation in Black Lives Matter-related Activities  -- As outlined by 2020 guidance from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel, the “Hatch Act generally allows employees to engage in BLM-related activity while on duty or in the workplace. But, as described below, employees are still prohibited from combining BLM-related activity with ‘political activity’ while on duty or in the workplace and from engaging in partisan political fundraising in connection with BLM-related organizations. Political activity’ is an ‘activity directed toward the success or failure of a political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group.”

[OCS: Again, truth be told, anything that promotes BLM, in any manner or context, is a political activity that inures to the benefit of the Democrat Party. A party that must court the people of color they openly exploit in order to win elections.

The democrats realize that many people of color are waking up to their subservient status as democrats, so the democrats are bringing in a hoard of new future POC citizens from across the border. Illegal aliens who are taking the housing, employment, and social safety nets from the poorest POC-Americans among us. In essence, the Democrat Party is stabbing its own constituents in the back.] 

“Guidance on Black Lives Matter Banner Displays -- Any BLM-related displays within the interior of the mission, or exterior displays other than the display of a BLM flag on the flagpole (e.g., a banner over the door, BLM spotlights, projections, etc.) are at the Chief of Mission’s discretion. As outlined below, Chiefs of Mission may decide to hang BLM flags, as appropriate and depending on local context. This cable constitutes a blanket written authorization for calendar year 2021 from the Under Secretary for Management to display the BLM flag on the external-facing flagpole to any Chiefs of Mission who determine such a display is appropriate in light of local conditions. This is an authorization, not a requirement.”

[OCS: The display of any flag associated with communism or any un-American activities on a flag pole flying the American Flag is an insult to every patriot, past, present, and future, who has fought or will fight for the sovereignty and honor of America. To allow this flag to fly abroad under American aegis is criminal. I would further question the source, cost, and provenance of BLM displays.]

Bottom line…

Celebrating the existence of thugs like George Floyd, Michael Brown, and Trayvon Martin sickens me. But not as much as the progressive communist democrats who are willing and able to participate in the destruction of America from within -- on behalf of a totalitarian ideology that has resulted in the deaths of a hundred million individuals and the suffering of countless millions more.

The essence of Black Lives Matter is that it is a communist black separatist movement that hates America but loves the power, perks, privileges, and profits generated by the "racist" system.

Is Secretary of State Blinken so ignorant or blind that he can’t see the spike in deaths, including several young children, since BLM’s false narrative of systemic police brutality and their defunding the police movement? Since when did America vote to give criminals free rein in the community and permission to terrorize citizens?

Does this mean that more deserving organizations can also fly their flags from government flag poles here and abroad? Does this mean we will start celebrating the deaths of Medal of Honor awardees as they pass away?

It is an elemental truth; our entire social experience is determined by how we choose to perceive our reality. And the progressive communist democrats are rapidly changing our perceptions with the willing assistance of the mainstream media and tech tyrants who control the social media platforms.

We are so screwed.
