The Black Lives Matter movement put together what it described as a “clear vision of the world where black humanity and dignity is the reality” back in 2017. Since then, the movement has grown in power and with that newfound power, they just released a new set of demands on Sunday. As reported last week, the new list of demands announced Sunday reach far and wide with stunning requests to defund the police and replace them with a group similar to the “Black Panther Party or Nation of Islam.” (see previous report below) It’s a power and money grab that claims its goal is to achieve “black liberation.”
PRNews reports the co-founders of Black Lives Matter Greater New York (BLMNY) announced
“We are centering Black Pain at the crossroads of the world,” said Hawk Newsome, Chairperson of BLMNY. “What was once known as “The Great Whitey Way” will now be known as the Black Pathway. For tomorrow we lay the path to Black opportunity.”
The legislative Blueprint, posted to the new Black Opportunities movement’s website, is a policy platform to reform failed statutes and regulations to begin the long march of reform to a more civil and just society. Black Lives Matter is a global movement that successfully focused attention on state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism. The new Black Opportunities movement offers the next step on the path to Black liberation by providing educational and empowerment opportunities while preparing and training Black people to protect their own communities.
Drafted as a local, state and federal policy framework to advance solutions to build strong Black communities, and to end the institutional racism and militarized police state responsible for the unjustified killing of Black persons, the Blueprint includes policies that:
-Require police to provide immediate assistance to persons in custody in medical distress – I Can’t Breathe Act
-Eliminate qualified immunity protection for law enforcement officers
-Authorize prosecution of officers who knowingly file false reports – The Blue Wall Act
-Disband police unions to reduce wrongful protection of bad cops
-Disarm and defund police departments to build stronger, safer communities:
CLOSE THE PIPELINE BETWEEN THE MILITARY AND THE POLICE BY ELIMINATING PROGRAMS THAT SELL MILITARY GRADE EQUIPMENT TO POLICE DEPARTMENTS, PROVIDE MILITARY TRAINING TO OFFICERS, OR FIND VETERANS JOBS IN THE POLICE FORCE.
REMOVE POLICE WEAPONS IN SETTINGS SUCH AS IN K-12 SCHOOLS, COLLEGES/UNIVERSITIES, HOSPITALS, SPORTING EVENTS AND ULTIMATELY ON STREET PATROL.
DEMAND THAT LOCAL AND STATE GOVERNMENT AGENCIES DIVERT FUNDS FROM LAW ENFORCEMENT AND REINVEST FUNDING INTO VULNERABLE COMMUNITIES TO BUILD STRONGER, SAFER AND PRODUCTIVE COMMUNITIES.
UTILIZE NYPD BUDGET FOR PAYOUTS AND SETTLEMENTS FOR POLICE MISCONDUCT AND BRUTALITY INSTEAD OF NEW YORK CITY BUDGET.
DEMAND THAT ALL ELECTED OFFICIALS STOP TAKING PBA AND POLICE DONATIONS AND RETURN ALL DONATIONS ALREADY MADE.
-Create Special Prosecutor for police misconduct
-Repeal New York’s 50-A statute to increase police transparency and accountability
-Ban cruel and unusual punishment of incarcerated persons, including solitary confinement
-Enact the Judith Clark Law to release aging people in prison who pose little risk
-Education reforms that are community lead and provide critical curriculum
-Enact housing reform policies to protect access to affordable housing
-Call for reparations for descendants of enslaved during colonization
-Provide right to counsel for victims of police brutality
-Implement fair and timely parole for incarcerated persons
-Create the Child and Family Equity Freedom Policy
“This Blueprint is a call to action for those we’ve elected to office to serve us. Laws are created to provide structure for our society and institutions, but they must be changed when they no longer serve the welfare of the governed,” said Chivona Newsome, BLMNY co-founder and candidate for Congress (NY-15). “For far too long our institutions have protected the abusers and victimized the innocent while trapping people of color in the quicksand of racism, poverty and despair.”
“Today marks a new beginning, a beginning that mirrors the revolution of our great country’s first days. The protests occurring here today in New York and around the world are symbols of our hope, power, and belief in a better and more just society,” said Newsome. “As our nation’s founding father Patrick Henry so famously proclaimed as he fought against the slavery of British rule, ‘Give me liberty or give me death!’ We’ve seen enough death. We now fan the flames of revolution and march onward to liberty.”
PREVIOUS REPORT ON DEFUNDING THE POLICE AND BRINGING IN “BLACK PANTHER-LIKE FORCE OR NATION OF ISLAM:
A “blueprint” for the way forward for the Black Lives Movement will be unveiled in Times Square in New York on Sunday at 12 p.m. and delivered to communities across the country, according to a leader of the New York BLM movement. Hawk Newsome spoke with Fox News about the “blueprint” of the group, and it’s frightening. He discussed having a force like the “Black Panthers or Nation of Islam” to help fight against the “war on the poor” and “anti-blackness.”
It’s interesting that Democrats and activists have suddenly been pushing to “Defund the Police” (see below) and now this? It’s almost like this is coordinated like everything else with the left.
The New York leader of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement made several stunning statements claiming the group will have an armed branch of “peace officers” in their war on the police.
After the death of George Floyd, the BLM New York chapter Chairman Newsome described in shocking terms of plans to be like the Black Panthers by matching fire with fire:
“We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities. You know what it’s like to see a taser pointed at a 7-year-old, you know what it’s like to see a 67-year-old black woman pepper-sprayed and pushed to the ground?”
“We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.”
Newsome said there was a meeting where BLM discussed a “pathway forward” where a plan called “Black Opts” will help to liberate black people:
“We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Opts department of Black Opportunities.”
Newsome confirmed that BLM “peace officers” would be armed and open carry guns.
“We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an army to defend ourselves. We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.”
Newsome spoke of the “war on the poor” and “anti-blackness”:
“When we start talking about black opportunities and building our war chest to defend ourselves from the war on the poor. .. to defend ourselves against the war that is anti-blackness in America, then people will have to meet a certain criteria.”
THE “DEFUND THE POLICE” MOVEMENT IS SPREADING TO DEMOCRATIC-RUN CITIES:
The “Defund the Police” movement has been gaining steam on social media. Notable Democrats and even Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary got in on promoting the movement:
The Minneapolis City Council is all for it, and Hollywood celebrities are also pushing for a ban on law enforcement.
It’s hard to believe, but with the move in Blue states to a “light touch” on criminals and now the George Floyd case, it’s believable. That “soft touch” didn’t work out very well for Democrats during the riots, but the left still wants the cops gone. Even though about 10k people have been arrested across the country during the riots, many of those have been released with no bail due to the “light touch” on enforcement.
Hollywood leftists have been outspoken on the movement by signing a “Defund the Police” letter:

After Hillary Clinton’s former press secretary tweeted out about the movement today, he’s been slammed on social media:
The movement is getting pushback from notable people. James Woods advised the “Defund the Police” supporters to opt-out of protection from the police:
Why don’t you folks who want to “defund the police” simply “opt out” from police protection? You could all send notarized letters to your local departments that you no longer wish to participate. Police costs would be less. Taxpayers would save money. Win/win for everybody! #Fool https://t.co/e3iXqHFs0I

Senator Ted Cruz:
Hillary’s press secretary makes the 2020 Dem agenda clear:
“Defund the police.”
Take your guns.
Cheer on the rioters & looters who burn your city.
It’s like Mad Max at Thunderdome, brought home to America. https://t.co/mlVZWI2Pf1

Now we have a move by Black Lives Matter to have “peace officers” running around enforcing against the police. A spokesperson for the effort described their purpose:
“We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an arm to defend ourselves, We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.”
One like Black Panthers, Nation of Islam, and the other our police force. Frightening.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS IT RIGHT:
