The rise of the Black Lives Matter movement during the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, in 2014, brought increased scrutiny into the movement’s leadership. Formed in the wake of the Trayvon Martin shooting back in 2013, Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization that uses race as a weapon against communities across the United States—that much is clear even at first blush. But the more that outsiders began to look into what was really going on behind the mass media’s love affair with the terrorist group, the more it became apparent that BLM was not just an opportunistic race-baiting squad. There was a method to the madness after all.
Perhaps the most damning revelation was that the foundresses of Black Lives Matter—Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza—were “trained Marxists.” This was not speculation. It came directly out of Cullors’ mouth. In a 2015 interview, Cullors boasted that she and Garza were “trained Marxists” who were “super-versed” in Marxist ideology. Their guru in all things Marxism had been Eric Mann, an ex-con and former Students for a Democratic Society leader who spent time in prison for the same violent tactics that Black Lives Matter deploys today.
Mann, the erstwhile wingman to fellow Left-wing terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, taught Cullors and Garza the ropes of domestic terror. And he also taught them the rationale behind violent revolution: Marxism. Compare Left-wing violence in any country and at any time since 1848 with the riots, looting, arson, vandalism, and outright murder that Left-wing groups are visiting upon American cities in the twenty-first century, and you will find them the same. Marx is to urban warfare as Santa Muerte is to the cult of the dead in Mexico—the patron devil of evildoers.
