Mark Fisher, a co-founder of a Black Lives Matter chapter in Rhode Island and founder of a new BLM-related organization, is on a media tour advocating for Donald Trump to be president in 2024.
"Everybody else sucks," Fisher told host Kim Iversen in a recent interview.
After Iversen asked if he thought Trump was simply the best of the worst and "not that great either," Fisher clarified his views.
"I like Trump, you know. Personally, 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."
Fisher was the co-founder of BLM Rhode Island but has appeared to hold the same views in his new role as the founder of Black Lives Matter, Inc.
In January 2022, he told a black business association website that his vision was "to see a world where Black people are no longer subjugated to and oppressed by a white supremacist ideology in any form or facet and at any level, and wherever it may rear its ugly head that it be swiftly eradicated."
For his new company, the about page lists a nearly identical vision. In the text, the term "black people" is simply replaced by "African American people."
"We want to create wealth," Fisher told Iversen. "We want to gain wealth, leave something for our children, you know."
Being anti-capitalist wasn't Fisher's only reasoning for condemning Democrats. He also said their stance on abortion went "against the laws of nature" and the "laws of procreation."
Fisher also claimed that black Americans have been "mental slaves" to the Democratic Party, who have "abused" them for so long. He added that Trump is "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."
At the same time, Fisher recently made headlines for defending those who were jailed following the events of January 6, 2021.
"They’re lambs led to slaughter to be sacrificed as an example for all who might want to dissent in the future,” Fisher told the Epoch Times. "This is what the government does to those who express independent thought and want to stand up for what they believe."
