The wealthy in America LOVE black lives matters. Now look. I am not saying that the movement is not needed. It is. Black people are abused by the cops more than they ought to be. OK. Got that? The movement is needed. NOW.
Since our far right friend insists, incorrectly, on labeling anything he does not like "Marxist" and since this thread is now completely off topic, I will propose that the reason that corporate American, which is running the country lock, stock and barrel, likes BLM and a shit ton of other issues like this is very simple.
They like these movements because none of them are aimed directly at the biggest economic and social problem we face and that this problem is at the root of all of the others. At the root of the BLM and other racial equality movements, abortion, immigration and a myriad of other issues is simply this. Income inequality. Fix that and you go a very long way to fixing them all.
Why did they give us the stimulus checks? Certainly not to buy food. They were just returning a tiny piece of the pie that we ought to have already had. We live in a country where one man's net worth is $214 billion dollars and many of his employees receive government benefits.
The man makes $13 million dollars an hour. Amazon has less than a million employees. If we just asked Bezos to take 3 million of his 13 million dollars each hour, leaving him a whopping $10 million dollars an hour to scrape by on, we could provide top shelf health care and retirement for all of his employees.
But the mouth breathers who follow Trump and his cadre of henchmen called the Republican Party, would call this "Marxist".
On topic, Trump's order to "punish statue vandals" was an unconstitutional piece of theater. The president has no authority to "punish" anyone. If the right-wing shit-shovelers had paid attention in grade school they would understand the rudiments of how our justice system works. They did not pay attention and so we have this nonsensical thread.
The OP can take some comfort in knowing though that the US has no significant Marxist movement. What it does have is two conservative parties. Actually one conservative one, The Democratic Party, and one racist/populist one, the Republican Party.
To believe in God is impossible not to believe in Him is absurd.
God is a comedian playing to an audience that is afraid to laugh.
