Black Lives Matter had the establishment's full support while rioters were burning down businesses, looting stores, attacking innocent people in the streets and killing cops but all that appears to have changed with just one tweet.
"As Israel moves forward with the annexation of the West Bank, and mainstream British politics is gagged of the right to critique Zionism, and Israel's settler colonial pursuits, we loudly and clearly stand beside our Palestinian comrades," the official account of the Black Lives Matter movement in the UK tweeted on Sunday. "FREE PALESTINE."
The backlash was swift.
From The UK Telegraph:
Bosses at the [BBC] have decided not to allow "visual symbols of support" for Black Lives Matter to be worn on screen, senior sources told The Telegraph.Incidentally, on Wednesday even President Trump came out hard against Black Lives Matter by calling it a "symbol of hate" after refusing to directly criticize it for weeks.
Jewish Currents reported last week on a leaked memo from the Anti-Defamation League suggesting they're "strategizing" behind the scenes on how best to support Israel's annexation of the West Bank while shielding the foreign state from "political consequences."
From Jewish Currents:
The "stakeholders analysis memo," which was issued by the ADL's Government Relations, Advocacy, and Community Engagement department and marked as a draft, warns that the group will need to find a way to defend Israel from criticism without alienating other civil rights organizations, elected officials of color, and Black Lives Matter activists and supporters. The memo suggests that the group hopes to avoid appearing openly hostile to public criticism of annexation while it works to block legislation that harshly censures Israel or leads to material consequences, such as conditioning United States military support.Looks like there's trouble in paradise...
