  1. Lynn, My dear, look on the BLM donation page and google the term BLM and socialist in the same search. Also look at the world wide socialist party web site and the video but scrub your internet because you will get a hacker.

  2. Joan my Dear: Tragically, when they do donate, they are likely to bankroll a number of radical organizations, I assume you also mean local Tea Party, KKK, and Right to Life, and various so called Freedom and Patriot right wing organization whose sole premise is denied others who do not look or think like them, their FREEDOM TO PROTEST AND DONATE TO LIBERIAL ORGANIZATIONS LIKE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY AND BLM MOVEMENT….

  3. I wonder if the older generation just understands the danger of Socialism and Markism more than the rest, that is what this boils down too. The younger one’s don’t seem to understand the effects of war and the people caught up in it due to propaganda. They think they are doing something for peace and opportunity for all when in fact they are enabling a worldwide global organization that is not good for the USA as a whole.

    Many see the slogan Black Lives Matter as a plea to ­secure the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all Americans, especially historically wronged African Americans. They add the BLM hashtag to their social-media profiles, carry BLM signs at protests and make financial donations.

    Tragically, when they do donate, they are likely to bankroll a number of radical organizations, founded by committed Marxists whose goals aren’t to make the American Dream a reality for everyone — but to transform America completely.

  4. If you are White Republican, 65 you favorer keeping the racist monument. Rick, remember that statement you made a few years ago ” We are one more funeral away from good government”. Confederate stature and Trump both need to disappear.
