Thursday on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, talk radio icon Larry Elder, writer and executive producer of Uncle Tom II, stated that the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is “destroying what made America great and using blacks as a means to do so.”
Elder said his latest film details the political weaponization of race-based grievance — including “white guilt” — as a tool to undermine America by advancing communist ideology.
“The co-founders [of Black Lives Matter] are self-described ‘trained Marxists’ who do not believe in capitalism,” Elder recalled. “They want to bring down the American system as we know it. They want to bring down capitalism. They want government ownership of property, even as they’re out buying mansions with the money that Patrisse Cullors described as ‘white guilt money.’”
Elder maintained that black Americans benefited “a strong belief in the values of America” following the American Civil War, including high rates of marriage and commensurate low rates of divorce, entrepreneurship, Christian faith, and patriotism. The Black Lives Matter operation, he added, amounts to “a very assault on what made black people survive and thrive after slavery.”
“Slavery and Jim Crow are the excuse for a lot of white liberals to enact policies that have hurt the very people that they claim to care about,” he stated. “My friend, the late Walter Williams, once wrote a column where he issued a proclamation — a pardon for white people — so they would stop doing things that were antithetical to the best interests of black people. Most notably, the welfare state, race-based preferences, set-asides, affirmative action.”
Elder highlighted the news media’s selective hyping and suppression of incidents of violent crime based on racial criteria of suspects and victims.
“It is a filthy disgusting lie that America is systemically racist and the police are engaging in systemic racism,” he held. “Just the other day, there were three Arkansas cops beating the stuffings out of a white suspect. It was a one-day story. Nobody cared. They kneeled on him. They pounded him. We’re talking about three people beating the crap out of this guy, and it was a one-day story. Nobody cared. Why? Because the suspect was the wrong race. Had he been a black guy, we’d know his name. The cops would be flashed all over the newspaper. They’d be prosecuted.”
Elder concluded by emphasizing the partisan political aspect of the Black Lives Matter campaign and enterprise.
“This is just such a fraud done by the Democrats in order to make sure black people are angry and pissed off, so they pull that lever to the tune of 90 to 95 percent [for Democrats] every four years for the presidency,” he said.

“We’re Never Gonna Be Satisfied!”
On the afternoon of April 21, 2021 — moments after a jury had convicted former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin of murdering George Floyd 11 months earlier — BLM activists on the streets of Minneapolis made it clear that the three “guilty” verdicts against Chauvin would have absolutely no effect on their determination to condemn and transform the allegedly racist criminal-justice system that they viewed as an emblem of the permanent and irredeemable racism that typified America as a whole. They repeatedly chanted, “Burn it down!” and made statements like the following:
- “Yes, we can defund the police. And maybe one day we will abolish the police, but we ain’t gonna do shit unless we have control over them. That is the number one thing right now. … We’re not gonna let these pigs in these buildings have any more control over our lives today. That shit ends today.”
- “We need to go way beyond voting at this point. We need to be coming out here every single day if that’s what it takes, until we get justice for the people that they murdered a week ago that they’ve already forgotten about. … The only reason once again, that we got this conviction, is because we showed up. And if we don’t keep showing up, and if we don’t change laws, and we don’t attack this system, from every single fucking angle we can, we will be here again.”
- “We’re not, we’re never gonna be satisfied. Black Lives Matter isn’t a trend. It’s a movement. Black Lives Matter forever, okay? So, we’re not gonna stop just because we’ve got one conviction. We’re happy with the conviction, but we’re gonna keep going. … This is a black genocide. This is more than one case. We’re not satisfied.”
