A former Black Lives Matter leader is making waves after publicly endorsing former President Donald Trump.
Mark Fisher — co-founder and former senior director of the Rhode Island BLM chapter, who is now on a tour advocating for the rights of January 6 protestors imprisoned by the Biden administration — says Trump is “the best candidate we have.”
During a Nov. 6 interview with political analyst Kim Iverson, Fisher expressed dismay over policies pushed by the Democratic Party, which he said have had disastrous consequences for black Americans.
“We want to create wealth,” he said while blasting Democrats for being anti-capitalist. “We want to gain wealth, leave something for our children, you know.”
Fisher also criticized progressive policies that champion and facilitate abortion, which he says goes “against the laws of nature” and the “laws of procreation.”
He added, “I’m not here to judge anybody, or to hate on anybody. I’m just telling you what’s beneficial and what’s not for my community. And the Democratic Party is not.”
For the former BLM leader, who has resigned and is now the founder and Executive Director of Maryland’s BLM Incorporated, Trump is a big part of the solution at the federal level.
“Well, you know, I like Trump,” he explained. “And I think right now who we have sitting in the Oval Office is just a deep disappointment, you know? I deeply have disdain for him and I really dislike the Vice President as well.”
According to Fisher, black Americans have “been mental slaves” who have historically pledged loyalty to the Democratic Party which has not delivered results or tangible improvements in return.
“We’ve been used and abused for so long at that party,” he said. “They don’t value our vote. Their policies are basically racist policies. And I believe it’s a racist party that strikes at the heart of the black family and the nuclear family in general.”
His statements come as Democrats and the Biden campaign face a reckoning with black voters who are fleeing the political left in droves as illegal aliens flood urban areas, inflation remains high, and many feel abandoned by their representatives.
Fisher said, “And I believe Donald Trump, he’s the opposite. He’s gonna tell you how it is. He’s gonna give it to you straight. He’s not gonna [be a] hypocrite and stab you in the back like the Democratic Party loves to do.”
