Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors said in a newly surfaced video from 2015 that she and her fellow organizers are trained Marxists making clear their movements ideological foundation, according to a report.
Cullors, 36, was the protégé of Eric Mann, former agitator of the Weather Underground domestic terror organization, and spent years absorbing the Marxist-Leninist ideology that shaped her worldview, Breitbart News reported.
The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers, she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza.
We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk, Cullors added in the interview with Jared Ball of The Real News Network.
While promoting her book When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir in 2018, Cullors described her introduction to and support for Marxist ideology.
She described to Democracy Now! how she became a trained organizer with the Labor/Community Strategy Center, which she called her first political home under the mentorship of Mann, its director, Breitbart reported.
The center, which describes its philosophy as an urban experiment, uses grassroots organization to focus on Black and Latino communities with deep historical ties to the long history of anti-colonial, anti-imperialist, pro-communist resistance to the US empire, according to the outlet.

So who is training them? Obama?
Well, the language is right.
You can only be trained to be a Marxist. Education would never get you there.
Obama/Holder did sent people with taxpayer money to get them started
Mann was elected to SDS national committee in 1968. He told the Associated Press that he believed in “continuous resistance” against “institutions and policies of corporate capitalism” and that SDS chapters transition from campus protests groups to community groups that would guide students as a “de facto government.”
When SDS splintered into three groups in 1969, Mann, then a leader in the SDS faction, the Weathermen (Weather Underground), adopted the Revolutionary Youth Movements belief that violent “direct action,” a euphemism for terrorism, should be used as a tactic to dismantle the group’s perceived power centers of US imperialism. Mann and 20 others were arrested in September 1969 for participation in a direct action against the Harvard Center for International Affairs, which the Revolutionary Youth Movement saw as a university-sponsored institution for counter-insurgency.  Mann and 24 other Weathermen were charged with conspiracy to commit murder after two bullets were fired through a window of the police headquarters on November 8, 1969. Mann surrendered to the police on four counts stemming from the November 8 incident: conspiracy to commit murder, assault with intent to commit murder, promotion of anarchy, and threatening. Mann was sentenced to two years in prison of which he spent 18 months in Billerica, Deer Island, and Concord State Prison (with 40 days in solitary confinement). He was released in July 1971.

A legitimate reason for completely ignoring the real violence killing multitudes of blacks in major democrat owned cities.
I’ve heard rumors that BLM is discussing forming a third party.
Criminals, all of them.
Someone has to put an end to them.
Will it be Trump?
Interestingly these sh*ts are careful not to challenge the agencies of the state directly unlike Mann’s buddies and himself back in the wild and crazy days of 68-72.Now the terrorists have friends and allies inside government. Powerful friends well up in government.
That is hilarious. She wouldn't know a dialectical opposition if one bit her in the ass.
G-d, this woman screams stupid and entitled. I would like to have her complete the American History orientation test I would give entering 10th grade students.
That would be great.
Exactly.....and that’s why we know this entire protesting mumbo jumbo was started by the Dems and their dial up dogs BLM......
