Yesterday, I happened upon a demonstration here in Portland. They were protesting the death of George Floyd. Here are some photos:
It was a peaceful protest, and by all means, people should protest police brutality. But most of BLM’s martyrs are criminals; witness the large portrait of Michael Brown. I get the impression that such protests aren’t so much in opposition to police brutality, but to display one’s piety in his worship of blacks. Things turned sour after dark, and that’s a separate post.
Speaking of blacks, two of them approached me and asked “What’s your nationality?” I responded, “American.” They persisted, “Are you Mexican or Latino?” I repeated, “Just American.” I don’t feel obligated to reveal my Jewish roots to any stranger who accosts me on the street.
In hindsight, now that I know they were members of a weird cult, perhaps “Black Hebrew Israelites,” I wish I had; it might have been interesting. They gave me a leaflet, and told me I “need to repent.”
The leaflet is full of grotesque typos and bizarre theories. Honestly, I’m not sure what message they’re trying to convey. According to the leaflet:
The 12 Tribes of Israel Today!!
- Judah (American Blacks)
- Benjamin (Jamaica and the isles of the Carribean)
- Levi (Haiti)
- Efraim (Puerto Rico)
- Manasseh (Cuba)
- Gad (Native Americans)
- Ruben (Seminole Indians)
- Simeon (Dominican Republic)
- Neftali (Chile and Argentina)
- Issachar (Mexico)
- Zebulon (Guatamala a Panama)
- Asher (Venezuela to Brazil)
From their website:
Israel United in Christ, Inc. was founded in 2003. Our goal is to change the hearts and minds of our people. Blacks and Hispanics must learn the truth that they are the Biblical 12 tribes of the nation of Israel. Disobedience to God’s laws has been the root of all our troubles. Blacks and Hispanics everywhere suffer the same racial, social, economic problems worldwide. Voting has not helped us, Christian churches have failed us. It’s time for a change. In these last days, we must give the Bible’s medicine to sick people, then and only then will things begin to change.
Keeping Portland weird!
On another note, if you haven’t watched Jared Taylor’s latest video, here’s the link. He decries the latest riots and destruction wrought by feral blacks. I’ll have more to say on that in my next post. Stay tuned!
You are quite courageous to engage in any conversation with dangerous leftists antifa or BLM people. I hope this will not get you in trouble some day.
When I venture into those events, nobody knows my politics. I’m just a random guy wandering in off the street. In this case, it was obvious that no violence was taking place; it wasn’t dangerous.
BHI = Christian Identity for black Americans.
Good to know, thanks!
