Civil rights leader Elijah Cummings, speaking at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s Civil Rights Town Hall, was asked about people voting and the value of their votes. His answer while sounding like advocacy to get involved with politics had a subliminal message to it where he first said “when you see something that is not right, not fair, not just you have an obligation to do something”. He then expressed how he believes in the MLK’s philosophy of non-violence but then changed his tune, that sometimes he would like to “bullwhip” and tell young people to get off their butts “go out there and do what you must do”! Yes, you read and heard that right. The civil rights leader, a black man has thought of taking a whip to the youth (black) to get off their butts and get active….
Again to be clear this is the same Elijah Cummings who marched with Dr King… now advocating young people to get active and engaged in politics, but also take whatever action is necessary, “do what you must do”, if they see “something that is not right”.
If this isn’t a subliminal message, a blessing, for Leftist extremists (BLM, Antifa etc) who have been tearing up America’s towns, cities, college/ university campuses then what is it?
Don’t say it’s only a call to get engaged in politics. Listen to it again, he took it beyond that in a subtle way. Cumming’s is advocating for physical altercations if the situation deems it necessary without saying it; the man’s not dumb. His “fighters and warriors” comment was to demonstrate kids got involved taking action too. In this context of the interview he’s not speaking as a civil rights leader, he’s speaking as one of the leaders of the democrat party who has remained silent for the most part following all the violence that has unfolded in America over the last year. He is telling the youth (Leftists who listen to him, DNC, media & Hollywood) in America who can’t vote to get engaged in other ways. The problem is the only thing they know is protesting which turns violent.
What you have here is confirmation of another democrat, who knows Alinsky’s words, condoning violence – the ends justify the means.
The Left wants to turn this cold civil war hot, they just don’t know how to do it so they can be standing when the dust settles.
