In response to a caller on C-SPAN 3 Wednesday, House Majority Whip James Clyburn claimed that Russians are spreading “disinformation” about Black Lives Matter (BLM) and that “white supremacists” are “subverting” the movement by launching violent attacks.
Clyburn asserted with zero evidence that the violent revolution sweeping American cities is caused by “white supremacists, who have dressed up in black, who have camouflaged themselves to look like somebody black, and going around knocking out windows.”
He added, again contrary to evidence, “that there are a lot of people subverting the Black Lives Matter movement. The Black Lives Matter movement is trying to show this country the way to go when it comes to law enforcement.” Yes, BLM is showing the country that it wants law enforcement dissolved and prisons emptied.
Clyburn also tried to pin the violence on “some foreign people” and Russian disinformation.” In fact, it’s Democrats like Clyburn who are spreading disinformation about the subversive BLM movement.
