Put on your shocked face, people.
In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, a co-founder of the Black Lives Matter movement compared President Donald Trump to Hitler, and refused to consider the possibility of sitting down to talk him. Patrisse Cullors said Trump was the “epitome of evil” and the source of all the hate in America.
The interview comes as some question where the Black Lives Matter movement has been in recent months, as ANTIFA seems to have taken control of the left-wing social protest movement.
“We wouldn’t as a movement take a seat at the table with Trump, because we wouldn’t have done that with Hitler,” Cullors continued. “Trump is literally the epitome of evil, all the evils of this country—be it racism, capitalism, sexism, homophobia.”
“He has set out some of the most dangerous policies, not just that impacts this country but impacts the globe,” she sad. “And so for us, the answer is not to sit with him but to resist him and to resist every single policy that he’s implemented that impacts our communities.”
Cullors said that one day she wants to tell her children “that I resisted a president at all costs, because this president literally tried to kill our communities, and is killing our communities.”
The activist’s remarks came two weeks after she defiantly claimed on MSNBC that neo-Nazi speech is not protected under the U.S. Constitution.
“Hate speech, which is what we’re seeing coming out of white nationalists groups, is not protected under the First Amendment rights,” she said.
Cullors was incorrect; hate speech is granted the same constitutional protections as all other forms of speech.
Here is a clip of the interview with Cullors.
