The radical left is sowing the seeds of its own destruction.

The Great Pushback has begun, but it wouldn’t be possible without organizations like Black Lives Matter. Why? Because BLM and their ilk aren’t hiding the ball. They’re letting the world know that they’re racist, and everyday Americans aren’t about to let those ideologies infect their schools.

BLM’s latest campaign is a great example.

Dubbed “Black Xmas,” the group is urging it supporters to resist “white supremacist capitalism” by committing to not spending money at “white companies” from Thanksgiving until the New Year.

“#divest from white corporations. #invest in black communities. If you must buy, #buyblack,” the website reads.

“#BlackXmas is about not simply struggling against the systems that enable Rittenhouse, McMichaels, Schwartzman, Walmart, racist policing, violence, and exploitation, but fighting on our terms,” says one proponent of the campaign. “#BlackXmas challenges us to shake off the chains of consumerism and step fully into our own collective power.”

Ignoring the fact that it makes zero sense to “shake of the chains of consumerism” by buying more stuff from black-owned businesses—does BLM really think this is a winning strategy?

Last I checked, black Americans are more likely to believe in God than any other ethnicity. Is co-opting Christmas going to convince them to join the BLM movement?

Black Americans are also more likely to be impoverished than many other ethnicities. Does it make sense to attack the “white corporations” that offer inexpensive products? If impoverished Americans can’t purchase Christmas gifts at Walmart, how are they supposed to pay twice as much at local black-owned businesses?

Lastly, and most importantly, does BLM expect to win hearts and minds by appealing to racism?

The mainstream media doesn’t want you to know it, but the parents who descended on school board meetings this year weren’t all white. Many were black, and they opposed schools teaching BLM lies.

As one mom put it, “[Critical Race Theory] does not teach the truth, unless you believe that whites are better than blacks … Telling my child, or any child, that they are in a permanently oppressed status because they are black is racist.”

Another father echoes those sentiments.

“I am a direct descendant of the North American slave trade. Both my parents are black. All four of my grandparents are black, all eight of my great-great-grandparents, and all 16 of my great greats. On my mother’s side, my ancestors were enslaved in Alabama. On my father’s side, we were enslaved in Texas,” he said.

“I am not oppressed. I’m not oppressed and I’m not a victim.”

So, please, BLM, keep spouting your racist lies. The American people, and especially black Americans, aren’t convinced. The Great Pushback has begun, and BLM’s days in power are numbered.
