The Truth About Black Lives Matter

July 19, 2020 |

The slogan “Black lives matter” is indeed true. Of course black lives matter. Our nation is founded on the premise that “all men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” No one, regardless of color, ethnicity, or origin, should be denied those God-given rights. So you bet-black lives matter. But recently, the slogan has morphed into a meme that black lives have to matter MORE. The left goes berserk if someone then adds, “All lives matter.” But isn’t that the point? If historically black lives didn’t matter as much, affirming that black lives matter equally should indeed be the uncompromised quest and rightful demand. But if someone gets angry that recognizing that black lives matter because there is equality of lives, then the assumption becomes that black lives matter MORE and thus perpetuate inequality. Such an absurd view is illogical and irrational. It becomes more than a slight to those who are white, who are no more guilty of their whiteness than someone is of his or her blackness. It’s equally an insult to Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans, and Mid-Easterners who aren’t black, but who are equally human and equally endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Why would that be offensive to those who chant “Black lives matter?”

It may be because black lives matter is more than a slogan. It’s the name of a radical left-wing Marxist organization that openly advocates for the dismantling of America’s economic system and the family structure involving a man, a woman, and children related by blood or adoption to that man and woman. Here’s some of the actual language direct from the website of the organization Black Lives Matter:

“We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence. We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

We foster a queer?affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”

There is more, and some of their goals are shocking. So why do major American corporations like Nike, Apple, GM, Coca-Cola, LL Bean, and others give millions of dollars to the organization whose stated goals are the deconstruction of the traditional family and the free-market economy that has empowered people of all colors to succeed and prosper? Great question! It appears because they are afraid to say no to the bullies who run this and other radical leftist groups and because too many of us who believe in true equality for ALL people whether black, white, red, yellow, brown, are also afraid to stand up and speak out. It’s time we do speak out. I do not believe that a majority of Americans, whatever their color, support rioting, looting, disregard for authority to the point of physically assaulting police officers and demanding that we defund the police. But if we don’t become as vocal in opposition to mob rule as the mobs are so as to cause the biggest corporations in our country and politicians of both parties to cower in the corner and surrender to the mobs, we will get what we deserve, but we will not like it. The elections this year will not be about political parties nor will it be a popularity contest to elect the most pleasant personality. Whether you identify as Democrat or Republican, you better identify as one who believes in the rule of law, civil order, and genuine equality for people that doesn’t favor some over others for ANY reason.

So, yes—black lives matter. And they don’t matter less than any other. But neither do they matter more. To say they do is bigotry and yes, it’s racism as surely as is the sinful notion of white supremacy. No race is supreme. God alone is Supreme. And we must live as servants to Him and to each other as we “do unto others what we would have others do unto us.”

    I am saddened that people have knelt down to the cancel culture. I have a son who is adamant that Trump is evil and that if he will "grab women's privates" he is evil; but when asked if he has ever said anything like it, he says no, which as his mother, I disagree; he has lived a life of blame and played a victim about any and all things that have happened to him; yes he is gay...... and has never been anything but accepted by his family yet he cheers for Bernie and his gaggle of geese and heralds the works of the BLM.....he was raised in a Baptist church family so I have not idea where and why this is happening. I support the president, I support LEOs, I support ALL LIVES.

    My comment does not refer to this above article, but addresses Covid testing. In a recent conversation with a friend, he was telling me how he and his wife were in line in their car to have his wife tested. She filled out the paperwork, but as the line was long and slow, they decided to pull out so that she could find a restroom. Afterward, they decided to leave and she was not tested. Days later, they received a notice that her test results were positive! My friend was also talking about a company that was testing its employees. I didn’t catch all the details of this conversation, but the what I understood was that the company sent in three unused tests to the lab, and the results were all positive. It then sent in ten unused tests to the same lab, and the results were all positive. Since this is all second hand, please do not use my name; I can put you in touch with my friend who knows the details if you are interested. Have you heard of these kind of things happening? The media mentions the growing number of cases, but I rarely hear anything about the fact that a person with the virus may test positive multiple times in an attempt to ascertain if they are safe to end their quarantine. Is this fact taken into consideration when tallying positive cases? Thank you!

    Trump's selection of a certain date in June sparked another racial flashfire due to his lack of sensitivity in regard to "Juneteenth", the day which has been acknowledged nationally since sometime in the 80's. THIS year, parades and fireworks displays took place along with the ongoing riots and looting. Taking out a calendar, I counted over, already 44 days of the year already dedicated to black only special days, and designated holidays by the federal . Columbus Day seems to be lined up to be taken off the record, along with his statuary, which has stood in cities across the country. Parades in a good number of cities are nearly certain to throw more incendiary sparks, leading to the elimination of the Italians' celebrating their 1 special day of the year. The Irish may lose their St. Patty,s Day. I'm bracing to lose my Scottish Day in these privileged 12 or so days a year dedicated to non-black citizens. I'm awaiting notification that my 1 man march might result in jailtime.

    Governor, a great piece! I am appalled at the corporations that seem to be aligning themselves with the BLM movement, whether out of a false sense of guilt or to make sure that they are on the "right" side of the political correct movement. Your article tells the absolute truth about the BLM movement and, as God-fearing, conservation, Constitution-loving Americans, we had better take notice of what is happening or we will wind up with no Country at all!

    I agree with you Mr. Huckabee. We are in a Spiritual battle as well. Marxist are against God & free enterprise.

    Thank you Mr. Huckabee. Why can we not get this message out of what the true agenda is for BLM and ANTIFA!? They are committing treason by trying to overthrow out nation and should be treated as such. And these companies giving in to their demands are helping destroy our nation!

    Yes, Black lives matter and All lives matter to God and should be the same with all of us! But we shouldn't allow BLM to flourish any more than the KKK! If the KKK went to these corporations and asked for money they would be refused, and they should. So should BLM. Both are hate organizations!

    There will always be airheads like this in our society (especially given the pathetic public school system). The real question to me is, "Where is the money coming from?" There is nothing spontaneous about these riots. That means oganization, which in turn means money. Or do people really think these are just "flash mobs?" And while we are on the subject, how about more exposure of the Left Democrat "community group" "Indivisible"? Those people are much sleazier even than BLM; at least BLM is honest (on its website) about its communist origins and goals. Indivisible however is merely "concerned citizens" (whose main is concern is how they ever let Trump be elected). I have seen a little exposure on this groups on Heritage, but that is about it. They need to be dragged out of the shadows. They have a chpater here in Beaufort, SC for Goodness sake, and they pay for billboards supporting all kinds of sketchy ideas--all of which seem to result in terrible local government policies. LR

A man or a woman has to look at himself or herself as a man or a woman first and then the colour. We are a nation of all colours ... black, white, brown and yellow... we are all Americans and we all matter.... EQUALLY!!! BLM with their stance and unleashing of terrorism are personifying RACISM to the hilt....they have no platform, no focus other than rioting, looting and burning and mostly their own in the inner cities....this must end ....

So you bet-black lives matter. But recently, the slogan has morphed into a meme that black lives have to matter MORE. The left goes berserk if someone then adds, “All lives matter.” But isn’t that the point? If historically black lives didn’t matter as much, affirming that black lives matter equally should indeed be the uncompromised quest and rightful demand. But if someone gets angry that recognizing that black lives matter because there is equality of lives, then the assumption becomes that black lives matter MORE and thus perpetuate inequality. Such an absurd view is illogical and irrational. It becomes more than a slight to those who are white, who are no more guilty of their whiteness than someone is of his or her blackness. It’s equally an insult to Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans, and Mid-Easterners who aren’t black, but who are equally human and equally endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. Why would that be offensive to those who chant “Black lives matter?”

It may be because black lives matter is more than a slogan. It’s the name of a radical left-wing Marxist organization that openly advocates for the dismantling of America’s economic system and the family structure involving a man, a woman, and children related by blood or adoption to that man and woman. Here’s some of the actual language direct from the website of the organization Black Lives Matter:

“We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence. We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.

We foster a queer?affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”

There is more, and some of their goals are shocking. So why do major American corporations like Nike, Apple, GM, Coca-Cola, LL Bean, and others give millions of dollars to the organization whose stated goals are the deconstruction of the traditional family and the free-market economy that has empowered people of all colors to succeed and prosper? Great question! It appears because they are afraid to say no to the bullies who run this and other radical leftist groups and because too many of us who believe in true equality for ALL people whether black, white, red, yellow, brown, are also afraid to stand up and speak out. It’s time we do speak out. I do not believe that a majority of Americans, whatever their color, support rioting, looting, disregard for authority to the point of physically assaulting police officers and demanding that we defund the police. But if we don’t become as vocal in opposition to mob rule as the mobs are so as to cause the biggest corporations in our country and politicians of both parties to cower in the corner and surrender to the mobs, we will get what we deserve, but we will not like it. The elections this year will not be about political parties nor will it be a popularity contest to elect the most pleasant personality. Whether you identify as Democrat or Republican, you better identify as one who believes in the rule of law, civil order, and genuine equality for people that doesn’t favor some over others for ANY reason.

So, yes—black lives matter. And they don’t matter less than any other. But neither do they matter more. To say they do is bigotry and yes, it’s racism as surely as is the sinful notion of white supremacy. No race is supreme. God alone is Supreme. And we must live as servants to Him and to each other as we “do unto others what we would have others do unto us.”

    I am saddened that people have knelt down to the cancel culture. I have a son who is adamant that Trump is evil and that if he will "grab women's privates" he is evil; but when asked if he has ever said anything like it, he says no, which as his mother, I disagree; he has lived a life of blame and played a victim about any and all things that have happened to him; yes he is gay...... and has never been anything but accepted by his family yet he cheers for Bernie and his gaggle of geese and heralds the works of the BLM.....he was raised in a Baptist church family so I have not idea where and why this is happening. I support the president, I support LEOs, I support ALL LIVES.

    My comment does not refer to this above article, but addresses Covid testing. In a recent conversation with a friend, he was telling me how he and his wife were in line in their car to have his wife tested. She filled out the paperwork, but as the line was long and slow, they decided to pull out so that she could find a restroom. Afterward, they decided to leave and she was not tested. Days later, they received a notice that her test results were positive! My friend was also talking about a company that was testing its employees. I didn’t catch all the details of this conversation, but the what I understood was that the company sent in three unused tests to the lab, and the results were all positive. It then sent in ten unused tests to the same lab, and the results were all positive. Since this is all second hand, please do not use my name; I can put you in touch with my friend who knows the details if you are interested. Have you heard of these kind of things happening? The media mentions the growing number of cases, but I rarely hear anything about the fact that a person with the virus may test positive multiple times in an attempt to ascertain if they are safe to end their quarantine. Is this fact taken into consideration when tallying positive cases? Thank you!

    Trump's selection of a certain date in June sparked another racial flashfire due to his lack of sensitivity in regard to "Juneteenth", the day which has been acknowledged nationally since sometime in the 80's. THIS year, parades and fireworks displays took place along with the ongoing riots and looting. Taking out a calendar, I counted over, already 44 days of the year already dedicated to black only special days, and designated holidays by the federal . Columbus Day seems to be lined up to be taken off the record, along with his statuary, which has stood in cities across the country. Parades in a good number of cities are nearly certain to throw more incendiary sparks, leading to the elimination of the Italians' celebrating their 1 special day of the year. The Irish may lose their St. Patty,s Day. I'm bracing to lose my Scottish Day in these privileged 12 or so days a year dedicated to non-black citizens. I'm awaiting notification that my 1 man march might result in jailtime.

    Governor, a great piece! I am appalled at the corporations that seem to be aligning themselves with the BLM movement, whether out of a false sense of guilt or to make sure that they are on the "right" side of the political correct movement. Your article tells the absolute truth about the BLM movement and, as God-fearing, conservation, Constitution-loving Americans, we had better take notice of what is happening or we will wind up with no Country at all!

    The more I hear Black Lives matter the less they matter to me. If they aren't satisfied with their color, and they keep complaining about it they need to go to God with their complaint, because since He created them the way He wanted them to be I imagine they might just accept it.

    Do you suppose that idea began with the slogan:”It takes a village.”?

    I agree with you Mr. Huckabee. We are in a Spiritual battle as well. Marxist are against God & free enterprise. The militants Antifa & the leaders of BLM has turned this battle from fighting for equality to racistism. The destruction is a result of the Marxist movement in our Democratic party& the rebellionist. The only thing they understand is those that will be force. Law & order must be restored.

    Dear Governor Huckabee,
    I always enjoy your newsletters, especially when we're on a cruise or in a remote location without TV, I feel "caught up."
    I was so very lucky that my husband and I went to a Trump rally right before this Chinese virus happened. I feel terrible for the way our president is treated by the press, so luckily we have patriots like you behind him.
    Your friend, Ruthie Schultz

    So sad...we have to argue this point...not one person should be higher than another...but laws are made to be followed..do no harm...rioting gets more poverty..and drags people down even more...
    Pray for us all...our President doesn't want to harm...he is working for our families...we must turn away from the evil...

    Yes , exactly. The "black lives matter "front obviously is not thinking of the black lives and businesses destroyed by the looting and destruction of these " peaceful protests " and what about the blace police officers who are attacked and killed. We need to get back to or Christian founders intention in setting up this country under God. We can improve our nation , but not by destroying it.

    Thank you Mr. Huckabee. Why can we not get this message out of what the true agenda is for BLM and ANTIFA!? They are committing treason by trying to overthrow out nation and should be treated as such. And these companies giving in to their demands are helping destroy our nation!

    Yes, Black lives matter and All lives matter to God and should be the same with all of us! But we shouldn't allow BLM to flourish any more than the KKK! If the KKK went to these corporations and asked for money they would be refused, and they should. So should BLM. Both are hate organizations!

    I have made a point about putting every race or gender in a box the polictican use the info to target groups for election or reelection the politicians need to make policy for all Americans if good policies work for me it should work for everyone incentives for one group and hinders another should not become policy. Mayors and lawmakers not protecting the community should be removed and penalize

    There will always be airheads like this in our society (especially given the pathetic public school system). The real question to me is, "Where is the money coming from?" There is nothing spontaneous about these riots. That means oganization, which in turn means money. Or do people really think these are just "flash mobs?" And while we are on the subject, how about more exposure of the Left Democrat "community group" "Indivisible"? Those people are much sleazier even than BLM; at least BLM is honest (on its website) about its communist origins and goals. Indivisible however is merely "concerned citizens" (whose main is concern is how they ever let Trump be elected). I have seen a little exposure on this groups on Heritage, but that is about it. They need to be dragged out of the shadows. They have a chpater here in Beaufort, SC for Goodness sake, and they pay for billboards supporting all kinds of sketchy ideas--all of which seem to result in terrible local government policies. LR

    Hello! Mr Hucabee,...Thank you for bringing the truth to the forefront. Julie, the WSJ Reporter has
    the perfect slogan....MAGA for all. I hope President Trump will not be pulled off his message by the
    media. I hope he stays focused and unwaveringly strong in communicating his Plan....Law & Order, School Choice, Immigration Fairness, Public Health, Trade Fairness, and the Greatest Economy AGAIN!! President Trump is the right person to turn this country back to its American
    values. He may be rough but rough is what it has taken to survive and THRIVE during these last
    4 years of evil and hate directed at him and what America stands for. Have a Blessed day, Mr Hucabee

    Thank you Gov Huckabee.
    The last time I checked, our country stands for “freedom and justice for all”! The slaves were liberated in 1865! This country of opportunities is available for all!!! A man or a woman has to look at himself or herself as a man or a woman first and then the colour. We are a nation of all colours ... black, white, brown and yellow... we are all Americans and we all matter.... EQUALLY!!! BLM with their stance and unleashing of terrorism are personifying RACISM to the hilt....they have no platform, no focus other than rioting, looting and burning and mostly their own in the inner cities....this must end .... All our CIVIL LIBERTIES are being infringed upon.... no one, none are above the law!
