Conservative conspiracy theorist Frank Gaffney has launched a stinging attack against Black Lives Matter.
According to Gaffney, several Black Lives Matters operatives have traveled to Iraq to receive terrorist training with ISIS.
“I have sources in the intelligence agencies who say that BLM activists have met with ISIS operatives to study weapons training and torture tactics,” said Gaffney in a World Net Daily article.
Gaffney has promoted a number of anti-Muslim conspiracy theories over the years such as claiming President Barack Obama was a “secret Muslim,” and that Muslim sleeper agents have infiltrated the top-levels of government.
Gaffney also called on President Donald Trump to declare Black Lives Matter a terrorist group. However, BLM is a group that sprung up to protest the police killing of black men.
The group is often maligned by Republicans who have called it “segregationist” and compared it to domestic terrorist groups.
Musicians Kid Rock, who is alleged to be running for Senate, compared BLM to the KKK.
“If you want to take a knee or sit during our ‘Star-Spangled Banner:’ Call me a racist cuz I’m not PC and think you have to remind me that Black Lives Matter,” he said. “Nazis, f**kin bigots and now again the KKK, screw all you assholes, stay the f**k away.”
