Nothing But Division in America’s Far Left

The far left is built upon a struggle, a fight, a unifying call.

Yet, as we know from examples in history, they soon turn on each other. For BLM, when they started off, the struggle was to grow the organization by starting branches and raising money. Once this goal was met, they began their violent campaign across America.

However, since then, its members, still craving a fight, have started to look inward. Meanwhile, the radical leftists in the Democrat Party have been clashing with moderate members of their own party over the Israel-Palestine conflict that’s since ended.

BLM

The initial ten BLM branches are requesting more transparency and accountability from the BLM global network.

This comes amid increased scrutiny of Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullor’s lavish spending; such spending includes her reported purchases of multiple homes totaling upwards of $3 million, the installation of fencing, and an electric gate around one of those homes.

This BLM bickering follows Cullors’ announcement that she will resign as executive director of the BLM foundation after suspicions about her finances arose. Cullors, on the other hand, disputed that her decision to quit was influenced by the issue, claiming she planned to leave for more than a year.

However, Cullors’ decision to resign is insufficient to meet the demands of a rising number of BLM chapters for change within the organization. A new group is known as the BLM 10 Plus is coming out in response to early requests for more openness and accountability from the BLM 10 (the ten original BLM chapters).

The irony of Cullors’ added security measures is ever-present and satisfying. She is said to have erected a wall and an automatic gate surrounding her $1.4 million property in Los Angeles.

The “Squad”

After an ever-growing rift between the far-left elements of the Democrat Party and the moderates become evident, Rep. Rashida Tlaib argued Muslim women in Congress do not have the right to free expression. This comment was mocked and condemned on social media.

Tlaib said on social media that Muslim women in Congress do not have the right to free expression. She claimed that for Muslim women in Washington, the benefit of the doubt is not a factor. The Democrat leadership in the House should be embarrassed by their constant and exclusive language regulation of people of color in Congress.


Tlaib was seeking to support colleague Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar when she got widespread backlash for demanding equitable prosecution for the US, Hamas, Israel, Afghanistan, and the Taliban’s crimes against humanity.

Tlaib was chastised for claiming that both she and Omar suffered restrictions from free speech, a remark Tlaib made to her 1.4 million Twitter followers.
