Black Lives Matter protesterA public policy analyst is contending that a recently released manifesto by a Black Lives Matter coalition is nothing more than a form of domestic terrorism.

A coalition of more than 60 organizations affiliated with the Black Lives Matter movement has released a manifesto that calls for radical policing, along with criminal justice reforms.

The agenda outlines six demands and offers 40 recommendations on how to address them. For example, organizers of the movement are calling for an end to what they perceive is a militarized police presence in various cities.

Under the Black Lives Matter manifesto, leaders also demand the retroactive decriminalization and immediate release of those convicted of various non-violent crimes. The document also calls for legislation that creates a commission to study reparations for the descendants of slaves.  

Abraham Hamilton III, a public policy analyst with the American Family Association, maintains that the manifesto incites violence, rather than safety.

"Following this issuance of this ‘manifesto’ – or these lists of demands by the Black Lives Matter group – it appears that they are bent on what I would term a form of domestic terrorism … as opposed to achieving any type of justice or equality," Hamilton told OneNewsNow.

Hamilton also argues that these groups are undergirded by a Marxist ideology.

"You see agenda items where they are wading into the political discourse between Jews and Palestinians, following the side of the Palestinians,” the public policy expert points out. “I mean, what does that have to do with injustice in America?"

Hamilton believes this radical group will continue to pursue its agenda – no matter who American voters elect this fall to become president.
