One such voice is Mark Fisher, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter chapter in Rhode Island, who has recently distanced himself from the Democratic party and declared his support for former President Donald Trump.
Fisher, who has been a lifelong Democrat, has been vocal about his dissatisfaction with the Biden administration's treatment of the J6 prisoners. He has previously led a national prayer outside the E. Barret Prettyman courthouse in Washington DC, protesting against the sentencing of Proud Boys Enrique Tarrio and Ethan Nordean. His recent decision to back Trump, however, has sent ripples through the political community, as he believes that Trump was responsible for creating the most prosperity for minority voters in American history.
In a recent appearance on Fox and Friends, Fisher explained his decision to back Trump and his criticism of the Democrats. He stated, "I think personally it is the duplicity of the Democrats. We’re not stupid. The brothers are not stupid. We understand when someone’s for us and when someone is not and it’s obvious that the Democratic party is not for us. Their policies actually strike at the heart of the black community and the nuclear family."
When asked about what it would take for Trump to garner more support among black voters, Fisher emphasized the importance of information and education. He said, "It’s just going to take information. A lot of people are misinformed. They don’t really understand because they don’t educate themselves on Donald Trump as a person and his history. If they do that, I think it will happen on its own. Personally I love the man. I mean, how could you not like a real man? How could you not relate to someone like that?"
Fisher also confirmed that he is still a member of Black Lives Matter, but his message is one of unity rather than division. He said, "I want to bring all the marginalized groups to the center because we’re stronger together as one nation under God."
In an exclusive interview with The Gateway Pundit’s Alicia Powe in August, Fisher expressed his solidarity with the January 6 political prisoners. He said, "Just because something is legal doesn’t make it right. Just because something is legal doesn’t make it moral. But it is a nation of laws that we live in, as opposed to a nation of people. So we have to deal with them. I believe solidarity and brotherhood is the way to combat governmental overreach and legislative abuse."
Fisher also commended Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green for her efforts in exposing the conditions of the DC Central Detention Facility and visiting the notorious "DC Gulag." He said, "I just spoke with Marjorie Taylor Greene and I just let her know that she should continue to fight the good fight. People don’t like people who are outspoken, who are supposed to be quiet and remain timid."
Fisher's shift in political allegiance and his call for unity and understanding among marginalized groups is a testament to the changing political dynamics in America.
His message is clear: it is not the government that will solve our problems, but rather, it is us understanding one another and having empathy. As he succinctly put it, "That’s what’s going to save America."
