At The American Spectator, Paul Kengor explains the goals of Black Lives Matter, which as he notes are “utterly unrelated to police reform.” He writes (abridged):
“Communism, avowedly secularistic and materialistic, has no place for God,” noted the Rev. Martin Luther King .
I’ve been forced to deal with that material. I’ve done at least 50 interviews on my new book, The Devil and Karl Marx, which doesn’t contain a single reference to Black Lives Matter, and yet, I get asked about BLM in nearly every interview.
Interviewers ask about BLM’s founders, particularly Patrisse Cullors, who said of herself and co-founder Alicia Garza, “We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists.”
In an April 2018 interview, Cullors added, “I went through a year-long organizing program at the National School for Strategic Organizing….We spent the year reading, anything from Marx, to Lenin, to Mao.”
She expands on this in her memoirs, which include a foreword by America’s most famous female Marxist, Angela Davis, a mentor and inspiration for her.
I always get asked about the “What We Believe” section of BLM’s website, which underscored goals utterly unrelated to police reform, seeking (for instance) to rally “comrades” (that word was used more than once) and “cisgender” people to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure.”
