Update (0953ET): After celebrating the Hamas paraglider massacre at a rave in Israel which killed more than 260 people, BLM Chicago has deleted their tweet, and said that they had "sent out msgs that we aren’t proud of."
"We stand with Palestine & the people who will do what they must to live free," the statement continues.
Yesterday we sent out msgs that we aren’t proud of. We stand with Palestine & the people who will do what they must to live free. Our hearts are with, the grieving mothers, those rescuing babies from rubble, who are in danger of being wiped out completely🇵🇸♥️🖤💚— BLMChicago (@BLMChi) October 11, 2023
The Marxist organization then tweeted that they were praying for God to "please unharden Israels heart & help them to stop bombing children & taking over peoples homes & building fences."
Us too, God please unharden Israels heart & help them to stop bombing children & taking over peoples homes & building fences, god please help them see the beauty & peace that can come of ending genocidal behavior https://t.co/kVBkBjEGpw— BLMChicago (@BLMChi) October 11, 2023
However distasteful it was to celebrate the rave massacre, BLM has been consistent in their views.
And of course, the ADL says white supremacists are celebrating the attack on Israel.
White supremacist leaders are openly celebrating Hamas’s attack on Israel, cheering explicit depictions of violence against Israelis and promoting brutality against Jews worldwide. Read more from our Center on Extremism: https://t.co/ynZPhgKZs9— ADL (@ADL) October 10, 2023
While this idiot suggests there are "Israeli flags" flying at 'white supremacy' rallies.

Yes, lots of white supremacists:

Here too. Observe this 'white supremacist' rally in MAGA country, and don't believe your lying eyes.

This is going to get awkward for a lot of virtue-signalers...
Black Lives Matter formally siding with Hamas is going to complicate the scheduled race riots in 2024. Regime is going to have to cook something else up. Or maybe Jake Tapper etc will pretend none of this happened and do propaganda for BLM again. We’ll see!— Cernovich (@Cernovich) October 10, 2023
At least two Black Lives Matters (BLM) groups have made statements on X, formerly known as Twitter, supporting Hamas - the terrorist group responsible for the deaths of over 1,200 Israelis (including women and babies).
The first BLM group (@blmgrassroots) issued a lengthy statement proclaiming, among other things, that "when a people has been subject to decades of apartheid and unimaginable violence, their resistance must not be condemned but understood as a desperate act of self-defense." The statement did not include any criticism of Hamas or its tactics.
We used a screenshot of the tweet since we suspect this will be deleted very quickly.
This should not be a surprise since Melina Abdullah, the co-director of the group, has been accused of antisemitism, according to InfluenceWatch. But, if you thought that was a little distasteful, here is what BLM's Chicago affiliate tweeted.
Again, we used a screenshot of the tweet since we suspect this will be deleted very quickly.
It doesn't get much clearer than that - BLM 'standing with' paragliding terrorists who killed hundreds of innocent Israeli concertgoers (as the community note makes it clear) .
Ultimately, Elon Musk - who has repeatedly been accused of anti-semitism by the Anti-Defamation League, which in turn has frequently supported BLM in the past - made it very clear how he feels about their comment...
Your position is clear— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) October 10, 2023
Still don't see it - maybe this tweet will help clarify things...
This is the equivalent of displaying airplanes in front of buildings post 9/11 with the caption— ᴡᴏʟᴠᴇʀ (@WolverCrypto) October 10, 2023
“We support Al-Qaeda.”
Presumably the following companies will be demanding their money back, all $99 billion of it, and will promptly cease any and all donations to BLM-affliliated groups and issue a statement of regret for their prior support...
- Bank of America: $18.5 million
- BlackRock: $810 million.
- Adidas: $120 million.
- Amazon: $169.5 million.
- American Express: $50 million.
- Apple: $100 million.
- IBM: $252 million.
- Kellogg: $91 million.
- Microsoft: $244.6 million.
- PGA Tour: $100 million.
- Warner Bros. Discovery: $115 million.
Also, Jonathan Greenblatt and the Anti-Defamation League have been awkwardly quiet in their rebuke of BLM...
However, that may leave Mr.Greenblatt with a problem, given that Israel Hayom reported last year that a Fox News investigation found that the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)'s educational and "anti-bias" programs, which influence millions of American children, educators and officials, promote far-left and critical race theory (CRT) concepts including "white privilege" and "systemic racism," and promote groups such as the Women's March and BLM – despite those organizations or their leaders' virulent Jew-hating, Israel-hating and pro-Farrakhan positions.
This problem a longstanding.
Six years ago, ZOA documented that multiple ADL educational lesson plans: encouraged students to join BLM protests in Ferguson (the same protests that demanded ending Israel's existence, calling Israel an apartheid genocidal state); promoted BLM while ignoring the BLM/M4BL organizations' antisemitism and antisemitic platform; and repeated numerous BLM false claims.
The list of critiques of ADL includes:
ADL sought to defund and remove the tax exemptions from three pro-Israel organizations (including prominent Christian Zionist group PTNJ).
ADL hired an outreach director who justified anti-Israel terrorism; said Jews need to "repent for Gaza's dead"; and, after Black extremists murdered innocent Jews in Jersey City, blamed Black antisemitism on "Jewish landlords, and pawnbrokers and small merchants" and on "systemic racism" against Blacks.
ADL's Black History Month celebration featured an Israel-hating BDS activist.
After Ilhan Omar tweeted, "Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.", and gave an insulting "non-apology," claiming she reacted to Israeli "oppression," Greenblatt praised Ilhan Omar, saying: "Hats off to Rep Omar for her honest apology & commitment to a more just world."
ADL opposed Israel's anti-BDS law banning BDS activists from entering Israel, which was upheld by Israel's courts. Furthermore, in 2018, ADL said that Israel should allow antisemitic boycott activist, SJP-BDS hate group president and terrorism supporter Lara Alqasem to enter Israel.
In September 2020, ADL co-signed a full-page New York Times advertisement promoting the antisemitic Israel-bashing BLM. ADL signed just four months after BLM burned, defaced and looted Los Angeles Jewish synagogues, schools and businesses; and despite BLM/M4BL falsely accusing Israel of genocide, ethnic cleansing, training US police to murder Blacks, etc.
We look forward to Greenblatt's appearance on CNBC to clear up any confusion.
Maybe Matt Walsh was on to something...
I said from the very beginning that BLM is a terrorist organization. Now they finally admit it. https://t.co/nJ1FYGCYmS— Matt Walsh (@MattWalshBlog) October 10, 2023
Yes, BLM is a domestic terrorist organization.— Benny Johnson (@bennyjohnson) October 10, 2023
But we already knew this.
Remember when people would get fired from their jobs for calling BLM a terrorist organization? https://t.co/mtBAt12OGL— Joel Berry (@JoelWBerry) October 10, 2023
I take no great joy in pointing out that most of us knew that BLM was a corrupt, grifter, toxic organization long before they showed the world their true colors today...well..i take some joy…just not “great joy”…lets call it modest joy…— jim iuorio (@jimiuorio) October 10, 2023

Bonus BLM Tweet (from the UK)...

And while we are at it, anyone remember this?
Presumably, Google and its ad-services will have already contacted all BLM-affiliated groups and banned them for 'policy violations' (which we assume includes, supporting baby-killing terrorists?)
Does this mean google will un-blacklist ZH now? pic.twitter.com/jg2HfeSeq4— zerohedge (@zerohedge) October 11, 2023
And now we wait for this epic SNAFU by the deep state's favorite on-demand riot organization (whose activity tends to peak 3-6 months prior to presidential elections) to force the FBI to conclude that BLM is yet another white-supremacist terrorist organization...
