BLM, ANTIFA, ETC. ARE JUST TODAY’S WAYS OF SAYING YESTERDAY’S ‘NEW LEFT:’ Capital Research Center (CRC) President Scott Walter offers a detailed illustration of the decades-long line of development that goes straight from bomb-throwing, cop-killing SDSers and Black Panthers to today’s Black Lives Matter and Antifa. And even more:

“In short, the radical ideas and violence associated with the Black Lives Matter movement are simply the latest eruptions of a type of left-wing politics that goes back decades, at least.

“Indeed, current movement leaders are tied directly to radical leaders and groups from a half-century of failed movements like Occupy Wall Street, Black Liberation, the Weathermen, Students for a Democratic Society, and the Black Panther Party.

“This unsavory political current also encompasses still more disturbing cases of extremism, including the Charles Manson cult and the Peoples Temple led by Jim Jones, notorious for a mass suicide in Guyana that took over 900 lives with poisoned Kool-Aid.”

Be thankful today that these criminals, nutcases, thugs, ideological fanatics and murderers are not even more powerful than they are.
