Just when you think nothing could make the Democrats more worried than they are right now about the 2024 presidential race, it gets worse for them.
Mark Fisher, co-founder of Black Lives Matter Rhode Island, made waves on Tuesday when he vocalized support for the Republican frontrunner, former President Donald Trump.
In an interview on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Fisher slammed Democrats, saying, “It’s obvious that the Democratic Party is not for us.”
The BLM leader told Fox News host Lawrence Jones that it’s the “duplicity” and the “hypocrisy” of the Democrats that made him support Trump.
“We’re not stupid. The brothers are not stupid. We understand when someone’s for us and when someone is not,” he said.
Fisher argued that Democratic policies “actually strike at the heart of the black family and the nuclear family.”
He said a lot of people are misinformed about Trump.
“Personally, I love the man,” Fisher said. “I mean, how could you not like a real man — how would you not relate to someone like that?”
He went so far as to say he would “stump for Trump.”
However, Fisher said he remained committed to the Black Lives Matter organization.
“My message that I preach and that I tout is unity,” he said.
On an earlier appearance on “The Kim Iversen Show,” Fisher said the Democrats were a “racist party.”
He also praised Trump’s record, saying, “He’s going to tell you how it is.”
“Trump has done more for the black community than any president I can think of in my lifetime,” Fisher said.
Following the interview, Trump made a statement on Truth Social in which he indicated that he had reached out to Fisher and had a conversation with him.
“Spoke with Mark Fisher yesterday, a great guy, very honored to have his and BLM’s support,” he said.
“I have done more for Black people than any other President (Lincoln?), including 10 year funding for Historically Black Colleges and Universities, where they had none, Opportunity Zones, Criminal Justice Reform, and much more. Thank you to Mark!” the former president wrote.
Fisher’s comments also come on the heels of polls showing eroding support for President Joe Biden among black voters.
An Associated Press poll in May found that only 41 percent of black adults wanted Biden to run again in 2024.
These are giant neon signs that Democrats are in danger of losing their most loyal constituency.
Losing even a small percentage of the black vote would spell disaster for Biden and his party.
As more and more black voters are starting to wake up, Democrats are seeing their worst nightmares coming true.
