Black Lives Matter Is A Marxist Revolutionary Group

The Black Lives Matter movement has grown exponentially and become more popular than ever before in the past few weeks, which has also revealed the organization's true colors.

The organization was founded by Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors with the purpose of building "local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities by the state and vigilantes."

"We affirm the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled folks, undocumented folks, folks with records, women, and all Black lives along the gender spectrum," the BLM website says. "We make space for transgender brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence."

However, it turns out BLM's mission is not restricted to showing the world that black lives do matter. The organization also holds to several other far left-wing ideals. The website says that the group also focuses on "issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression."

"We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts," it continues.

And while the website does not say outright that the group calls itself Marxists, one if its founders openly admitted that the group does, in fact, subscribe to Marxist teachings.

Co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a recently resurfaced 2015 interview that she and the other BLM founders are "trained Marxists."

Is it any coincidence, then, that the nature of these protests across the country have been violent in many cases?
