One of the founders of BLM just posted a video to “set the record straight” about her political ideology. The video is a follow up to her last one where she stated the founders of the Black Lives Matter movement are “trained Marxists.” Well, at least she’s not hiding it.
BLM founders are trained Marxists
Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of BLM who serves as the BLM Global Network executive director, uploaded a video to her YouTube channel last week to clarify her political views. The video is titled, “Am I A Marxist?” In the video she confirms that yes indeed she is a Marxist and people shouldn’t be afraid of that.
“Am I a Marxist? I am a lot of things,” Cullors says. “I do believe in Marxism. It’s a philosophy that I learned early on in my organizing career. We were taught to learn about the systems that were criticizing Capitalism. We were taught to understand why there were philosophies that were criticizing Capitalism. I’m working to make sure that people don’t suffer, I’m working to make sure that people don’t go hungry.”
Cullors goes on to compare herself to Martin Luther King Jr., because people accused him of being a Communist too. “Everybody called Martin Luther King a Communist, up until he was assassinated. And now, everybody loves Dr. Martin Luther King. Nobody talks about his work as being work that was terrible or bad.”
Radical Left-wing Communist take over
Cullors said Capitalism wouldn’t lead to “the liberation of every single human being” but did not specify other economic structures that would. Cullors acknowledged that Communism has failed around the world but said, so has Capitalism.
“But I do believe that we can get to a place where there is a socio-economic system that doesn’t oppress some groups of people and only uplifts a few,” she added. “We can’t allow for fear to dictate how we understand what’s possible.”
Cullor’s recent video is a response to the backlash caused by a 2015 interview that surfaced over the summer where she said both she and fellow BLM co-founder Alicia Garza were “trained Marxists,” and that ideological theory had been influential in building the BLM movement. Yes, they are all commies and they’re being supported by big tech, mainstream media and the Democrat party.
