Blackburn takes aim at BLM, a day after she called on Omar to resign

Sen. Blackburn took aim at the founders of the BLM movement referring to them as ’self-proclaimed ’trained Marxists’’. Blackburn was referring to a 2015 video clip in which BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors was quoted saying, ’We are trained Marxists’. Blackburn’s warning about BLM came a day after she tore into Rep. Ilhan Omar, saying ’Omar and her Marxist comrades are a threat to our Democracy’.

While Omar clearly hates the country that have her refuge she is allowed to do so. Its up to everyone else to ensure that her plans to destroy the foundations of this country do not succeed.

Blackburn is 100% correct. It is the mission statement of BLM to tear down our current economy and political system to instill socialism. They don't have any interest is any lives or how much they should matter. It's just a slogan for them that is vague enough to seem moral, but they stand for nothing but immorality. Omar is on cloud 9 because in her own district she was able to completely destabilize it with a single lie around a career criminal and drug addict. If it worked there with such an unfit martyr then they think it will work easily around the country. They are sadly mistaken. America will not be a socialist/communist haven no matter how much twisting of facts that the media does or how much disgusting liars like Omar spout off in public. The more they push the stronger the opposition gets. I will not be the least bit surprised if the house flips back to republican in the wake of the lawlessness coming out of the Dem party. The majority of Americans don't want to remove police. They want their kids in school and we don't want to destroy our history of struggle, triumph, and fighting for true equality of opportunity.

So a Muslim woman politician literally says that she wants to “Begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it” and the right loses it and implies that she wants to tear down our democracy. So the right is essentially saying our democracy is built on systems of oppression...that checks out. More fear mongering from the right directed at Omar, the amount of time spent stirring up their base and vilifying her is utterly amazing and pathetically thinly veiled racism.
