Anyone who has been watching these protest dramas play out will see some very familiar themes from all the previous ‘grassroots’ movements. And people have noticed.
BLM looks an awful lot like environmental protests look an awful lot like Occupy Wall Street looks an awful lot like those big Black Block protests from the early 2000s. And so on…
It’s almost like the whole thing is all one big dance with someone else calling the tune, isn’t it? And that’s the problem rapper Lord Jamar sees with this.

He objects about the leadership and the mission. This issue didn’t spring up organically from within. This isn’t their own voices responding to issues. This isn’t even their own leaders that rise up naturally with others coalescing around them. It’s hand-picked political activists with someone ELSE’s agenda.
He takes dead aim at the women who started BLM, and at Soros, too.
“Because this is not our movement. It’s a movement that was given to us by, you know, George Soros and his f—— boys.”
