Main Street Americans are being forced to listen to celebrities, athletes, politicians, and media personalities berating them for alleged racism while extolling the virtues of the Black Lives Matter movement. Do stars like LeBron James even understand what BLM is, and what it stands for? Do the Americans putting BLM signs in their yards understand the group’s ideology? At The Washington Examiner, Jerry Dunleavy traces the Marxist roots of BLM. He writes (abridged):
The co-founders of Black Lives Matter are avowed Marxists. At least one names a convicted cop killer among her heroes. A key mentor in building and shaping the group is a two-time vice-presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA. The national organization is financially supported through a leftist group whose board of directors includes a convicted terrorist. A 2017 report from Black Lives Matter describes its founders, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Khan-Cullors, and Opal Tometi, as “three radical Black organizers.” The women espouse Marxism and openly push radical identity politics.
Susan Rosenberg was listed as vice chairof the board of directors for Thousand Currents, BLM’s financial sponsor, until the website was pulled down in late June. She had been a member of a radical leftist revolutionary militant group known as the May 19th Communist Organization, which was affiliated with the Weather Underground terrorist group and the radical Black Liberation Army. She was convicted on weapons and explosives charges and sentenced to 58 years in prison, serving 16 years behind bars before being pardoned by President Bill Clinton at the end of his second term in January 2001.
Rosenberg was a radical in the 1960s and 1970s who landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted list for a number of crimes. She was caught in 1984 while unloading hundreds of pounds of dynamite and weapons, including a submachine gun, from her car at a New Jersey storage facility. She was believed to have been part of politically motivated bombing plots.
Garza has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Rosenberg was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison after murdering a police officer.
Shakur is on the FBI’s Most Wanted Terrorists list with a $1,000,000 reward for information directly leading to her apprehension. She is believed to be hiding in Cuba. Shakur, a member of the revolutionary extremist group the Black Liberation Army, is wanted for escaping from prison in New Jersey in 1979 while serving a life sentence for murdering a police officer.
Cullors told Teen Vogue in 2019 that “Angela Davis is a mentor of mine.” The duo have coordinated on BLM’s strategies, and they appeared together.
In the United States, Davis was affiliated with the Black Panther Party and connected to violent, murderous radicals. Firearms registered to her were used in the takeover of a California courtroom in 1970 where four people were killed. Davis detests Israel and has been dogged by accusations of anti-Semitism for decades.

VIDEO: Giuliani: BLM Is a Marxist Organization Planning to Destroy the Police
The NY Post reports on Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s comments on Black Lives Matter. They write:
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Wednesday that Black Lives Matter is a “Marxist organization” that “has been planning to destroy the police for three years.”
The Republican and lawyer for President Trump told reporters at the White House he’s outraged by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s decision to paint “Black Lives Matter” on Fifth Avenue near Trump Tower.
“Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization run by three avowed Marxists — go check. Black Lives Matter has been planning to destroy the police for three years. They’ve finally gotten stupid Democrat mayors to agree with them,” Giuliani said.
The former mayor, remembered for “cleaning up” the city between 1994 and 2001, said de Blasio and other Democrats are responsible for lawlessness.
“Right now murder is up 58 percent under the regressive Democrat mayor who is typical of Democrat mayors all over the country. They are a disaster. They are a danger to their people,” he said.
De Blasio is moving to cut $1 billion from the NYPD operating budget and another half-billion from its capital budget in response to nationwide protests against the killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police.
