Jason Whitlock Compares BLM & Antifa to KKK: 'Enforcement Arm of the Democrats'
African American journalist slams far-left groups for pushing radical Marxist politics
African American journalist Jason Whitlock has slammed Black Lives Matter, warning that far-left groups, such as BLM and Antifa, are akin to the Ku Klux Klan (KKK).
Speaking with Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Wednesday, Whitlock said Black Lives Matter and Antifa are comparable to the KKK because they serve as the modern-day “enforcement arm” of the Democratic Party.
Whitlock contrasted the Democrats' power-based stance against racism to the faith-based case against racism to which people like Martin Luther King Jr. appealed.
Carlson continued by asking Whitlock about his views regarding the BLM organization that has been forefront amid protests in recent months.
“You mentioned the BLM movement that really kind of took over a lot of the country, funded by our most powerful corporations over the summer,” Carlson said to Whitlock.
“That is a political movement. Put it in context for us. What would you compare that to?”
“Well, I compare Black Lives Matter to the KKK. I really do,” Whitlock responded.
“And some people don’t understand it, but if you go back to the 1860s, after the Emancipation Proclamation, the KKK was started, and it was the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party.”
“And what’s the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party right now?” Whitlock asked.
“Black Lives Matter and Antifa.
"They will come to your home and violate your home, try to intimidate the people in your home if they disagree with you politically.”
“Black Lives Matter [is] a Marxist organization,” Whitlock asserted.
“Marxism is hostile towards religion; that’s why I’m glad you went there today.
"These are atheist values being expressed from our leaders, demonizing individual citizens here in America, branding them as white supremacists because they decided, because we disagree with their opinion about something.”
“This is lunacy,” Whitlock added.
“And it’s dangerous.”

Whitlock’s view of Black Lives Matter echoed that of people like San Francisco Giants relief pitcher Sam Coonrod, who refused last July to kneel in deference to the organization because of his religious convictions.
As Neon Nettle reported last Summer, Coonrod refused to bow to the Black Lives Matter agenda by taking a knee for the radical-left organization.
Coonrod was the only player who refused to take a knee prior to the national anthem, later explaining that he's aware of BLM's leftist politics and Marxist leanings.
Also citing his Christian faith, Coonrod said he would never join his teammates in supplication to the far-left agenda because he “can’t kneel before anything besides God.”
"I’m a Christian like I said, and I just can’t get on board with a couple of things that I have read about Black Lives Matter,” Coonrod explained to the media, according to the same NBC Sports report.
"How they lean toward Marxism and they’ve said some negative things about the nuclear family.
"I just can’t get on board with that."
“I meant no ill will by it,” Coonrod maintained.
“I don’t think I’m better than anyone.
"I’m a Christian.
"I just believe I can’t kneel before anything besides God — Jesus Christ.”
“I chose not to kneel,” he added.
“I feel that if I did kneel, I would be being a hypocrite.
"I didn’t want to be a hypocrite.
'Like I said, I didn’t mean any ill will toward anyone.”
