Anger is a powerful tool, and those who have been blinded by it are easily manipulated, as the gentleman in the video above discovered. He claims that the Black Lives Matters group, and many others, including White supremacist groups, have been infiltrated and are being led by others behind the scenes to accomplish a hidden goal of destroying America. Many are shocked and amazed by this man's statements, while many others have their doubts.
How can we know if what he is saying is true?
As with many other things, we can look to history for an answer.
Six decades ago, Manning Johnson was "a God-serving and patriotic American Negro who was enticed into Communism with Utopian promises, who worked his way up to the high echelons of the conspiracy, then suddenly and dramatically saw through the blandishments. That was the day Manning Johnson faced the jolting realization that he was being used as an activist in the plot to destroy his native land."
After realizing what was happening, he quit the Communist Party and traveled the United States, speaking to people of all races, encouraging them to look to God, to be kind to one another, and to take responsibility for themselves. He wanted the people to not get caught up in "the dole" (welfare), and hatred for others. You can read his book, Color, Communism, and Common Sense, at http://www.manningjohnson.org
, and hear an address he gave before he passed away.
Unfortunately, his was not an isolated case, and he warned Black Americans that they were (and are) being used to destroy America, just as the man in the video, above.
Most members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are sadly unfamiliar with an address given by then-Apostle Ezra Taft Benson, during General Conference in Sept. 1967, entitled, "Civil Rights: Tool of Communist Deception
," where he warns of this situation, as well.
So, yes. History tells us that what this man says is most likely true. Conspirators are like parasites, eating their host organizations from the inside, and they will use any means they can.
As described in great detail in the book, The Naked Communist
, by W. Cleon Skousen, every Communist takeover has risen on the heels of discontent, by convincing a group that they have been oppressed–whether or not it's true–and that violence is the solution. This is how every Millennial's favorite commie, Ché Guevara, rose to power. As did Fidel Castro, Pol Pot, and the rest.
Interestingly, this tactic can be seen all throughout the Book of Mormon, as well. "Dissenters," as they are called, are often found "stirring the people up to anger."
We encourage you to read the resources linked to above, and share what you learn with your family, friends, and neighbors. We encourage you to engage with the unawakened in a civil manner, because many of them have good intentions, but are being secretly led to bring about their own destruction.
Finally, we encourage you to watch the documentary, Accidental Courtesy
. It is the true story of Daryl Davis, a Black American who decided to go out and meet members of the KKK face-to-face. To date, he has had 200 of them quit the Klan and send him their robes. This is the only real solution to issues like racism, and we encourage this patient, kind, respectful approach.
But that's not the only reason we want you to see the film. The very end contains a surprise meeting between Daryl Davis and some leaders from Black Lives Matters, which shows what they are really about.
