Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani received backlash following controversial comments he made regarding the Black Lives Matter organization.
On a segment with Fox News’s Fox & Friends, Giuliani described the group as a “domestic terrorist group” who turned the United States into a socialist country. In the past, he has called the group a “Marxist” organization.
“Just go read two or three backup documents for Black Lives Matter … Black people get salaries for the rest of their lives, nobody else,” Giuliani said in his interview with Fox News referring to a document he allegedly uncovered about the organization. “They haven’t said a single word about the violence taking place by antifa or Black Lives Matter, both of whom [are] domestic terrorist groups without any doubt. You know who knows that best? African Americans. I’ve actually had them tell me, why aren’t they classified as a terrorist group? Just because they’re Black and nobody can say it?”
He also went on to say that the country was “headed for pure socialism,” adding that “we’re headed for the end of private education, we’re headed for a drastic reduction in churches, the ability to go to church. They are dead opposed to the military. They want to do away with the police. This is no longer America.”
“Whoever wins, this country is going in two dramatically different directions,” he continued. “We’re either going to remain a free enterprise country or we’re going to become some kind of socialist country that Black Lives Matter wants, antifa, [Sen. Bernie Sanders]. Biden has agreed with it and he’s too weak to oppose it.”
Giuliani followed up his comments on his online show, Common Sense, on the Black Lives Matter organization.
