Patrisse Cullors, a Black Lives Matter co-founder, has joined Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D- MA) in calling for the (probably) incoming Biden administration to promptly enact radical far-left legislation, including the abolition of police and prisons.
Tlaib and Pressly recently introduced the BREATHE Act, a proposal which, if brought before Congress and passed, would usher in sweeping changes to the fabric of the United States. The revolutionary legislation is a laundry list of extremist—not to say bat-sh*t crazy—proposals including: ending life sentences and mandatory minimum sentencing for criminals, as well as predictive policing, electronic monitoring, and the use of drones and “any other tool” used to track the location of convicted felons. And that’s just for starters.
The act would mandate the removal of all police, resource officers, and armed security from schools, while banning the use of metal detectors and other surveillance equipment.
It would also repeal all federal laws that “criminalize human movement and border entry.” Moreover, if enacted, it would require the dismantling of the Drug Enforcement Administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, and immigration detention centers. (Presumably, these law enforcement bodies could be retooled and repurposed to track down and incarcerate Trump supporters, conservative Christians, and assorted other deplorables and ugly chumps in flyover country.)
The BREATHE Act would also create a commission to study reparations proposals for African Americans and members of “Tribal Nations.” (Which, at the rate we’re going, will be all of us soon.)
It would see to the creation of “comprehensive health centers that offer culturally competent services,” including those “related to reproductive health.” (Apparently, our abortion providers are not already “culturally competent” in ridding the world of unwanted babies.)
The bill states that public school systems would be required to develop curricula that examines “the political, economic, and social impacts of colonialism, genocide against indigenous people, and slavery.” (How about the targeting of conservatives?)
And it would provide for jobs programs “that specifically target the most economically disadvantaged individuals, including Black cis-and trans women, formerly incarcerated people, undocumented people, and disabled people.” (Nearly everyone will be “economically disadvantaged” if the BREATHE Act were to be enacted.)
But wait, there’s more! The BREATHE Act directs politicians to come up with a plan for developing “100% of the State power demand using clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources.” The “State” power demand? Nothing scary about that. Or unique, either, sadly. The State under leftists always demands 100% of the power; power that, in America, used to be derived from-- and reserved to—the people.
Cullors, a self-described “trained Marxist,” called the BREATHE Act a “landmark civil rights bill.” She added, “I think this moment calls for structural change and transformative change in ways that we haven’t seen in a very long time. We see this opportunity to push for the BREATHE Act as a part of what we’re calling the modern-day civil rights act.”
Cullors had previously sent a letter to Joe Biden and Kamala (“Comma-la”) Harris congratulating them on their apparent victory. In that letter, sent “on behalf of the Black Lives Matter Global Network,” she blatantly informed Harris-Biden: “We want something for our vote.” We now know what that something is.
It is the complete transformation of the U.S. into a Third World nation, with its economically, morally, and spiritually impoverished citizens beholden to a massive federal government. All but the ruling class would be sentenced to lives of hopelessness and despair. Those even less fortunate would be figuratively imprisoned, trapped in a lawless, chaotic and depraved world of crime and substance abuse.
In short, the BREATHE Act would decriminalize just about everything except free speech, whiteness, cis-normativity, maleness, Christianity, heterosexuality, conservative thought, traditional ideas, capitalism, the ability to defend oneself, gasoline powered vehicles, and the concept of Natural Law…all of which would essentially be criminalized for the first time.
If the BREATHE Act were enacted, we would kiss the country good-bye in less than one generation. Ironically, it would suffocate the economy, disincentivize a rapidly diminishing workforce, reward sloth while penalizing hard work, stymie creativity and entrepreneurship, lead to even higher rates of suicide, depression and drug abuse, make us all wards of the State, and assure that no conservative ever again wins a national election. At best, we would all be like much of Baltimore. At worst, like Venezuela.
We have been masked up and locked down. We have been the victims of one hoax after another. And it now appears likely that many of our votes were negated, switched, or stolen.
Whether we like it or not, there have been—and always will be—only two types of societies: one in which the government fears the people…and one in which the people fear the government. Sadly, we are rapidly trending towards the latter.
