A black preacher completely tore into the Black Lives Matter movement in a recent interview, declaring the movement as “worse than the Ku Klux Klan.”
Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, who was raised in the Jim Crow era, railed against “race hustlers” like President Barack Obama, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan for “keeping black Americans angry and demoralized for power and wealth for themselves” in an interview with The Daily Caller‘s Ginni Thomas.
“You cannot control a moral people,” Peterson said. “So they keep them in a state of anger and confusion so that they can use them for their personal gain.”
Peterson then pointed out that the common thread between Obama, Farrakhan, Michael Brown and Trayvon Martin “is that they all grew up without a father in the home,” which is why Obama has been sympathetic toward the Black Lives Matter movement. Peterson decried the movement as “wicked” and “evil.”
“They’re an agitating group, they’re worse than the KKK,” Peterson said. “If Black Lives Matter was a white organization and doing exactly what they’re doing now, America would not accept them, they would not. But because they are black and white people are afraid, and then they have the support of the president, they’re allowed to bring on destruction in this country.”
Peterson went on:
He continued, “Can you imagine having a group of people shouting, ‘What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want them? Now!’ ‘Pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon!’ And they can get away with it and there are people that will go out and start killing cops – no big deal. They have a hatred for white people but the anger’s really not from white people. It starts from the home, it starts with the parents, the failure of the parents.”
“But they won’t deal with that,” said Peterson. “They’d rather blame it on white people because white people are afraid to stand up for themselves and say, ‘I’m not a racist. I’m not against you.’ And because they’re afraid, they’re giving power to these race hustlers.”
The Black Lives Matter movement’s poisonous rhetoric has resulted in rioting and looting in Charlotte, NC from a black police officer shooting an armed black man. There is no question that the movement hates cops, as evident here and here.
