Not long after former President Donald Trump teased the 2024 presidential bid, the Black Lives Matter activist group joined Democrats and made extreme demands to undermine his future intention.
In the latest adjustment, BLM’s very first demand unambiguously listed leftist officials that side with them on the requirement of Senate conviction against President Trump, including Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Cori Bush, Rep. Jamaal Bowman, and “others.” Additionally, they also wanted to exclude him from any future candidacy opportunity.
The group makes their second interest to be the punishment on Trump loyalists in Congress, particularly Republicans who might potentially support Trump in his presidential bid, purporting that they might try to “overturn the election and incited a white supremacist attack.”
Members of the BLM community also require the treatment that the former president and his allies faced when they wanted to fight for the 2020 November election transparency, censorship on “all social media platforms,” accusing that Trump has been using the service for spreading “lies and disinformation.”
“He must be stopped from encouraging his mob and further endangering our communities, even after inauguration,” a part of the fourth demand reads.
Meanwhile, the group’s notorious movement, defund-the-police, which has long been their primary target, falls to be the fifth demand on their list. Since the death of George Floyd, BLM activists have been pressing on the government to reform the law enforcement system due to an alleged culture of racial differentiation.
“The police that met our BLM protestors this summer with assault rifles, teargas, and military-grade protective gear were the same police that, on Wednesday, met white supremacists with patience and the benefit of the doubt, going so far as to pose for selfies with rioters,” the group argued for their demand.
Their seventh, also the final demand, request the passing of George Floyd inspired law, called the BREATHE Act, which involved the moving of American taxes to be funded on abandoning “police, prisons, and all punishment paradigms,” breathact.org defines.
By endorsing the law, BLM demand gives out their view that “the police were born out of slave patrols. We cannot reform an institution built upon white supremacy. We need a new, radical approach to public safety and community investment.”
