A video surfaced earlier this year of one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, Patrisse Cullors, claiming she was a Marxist.
The Daily Caller explained what happened recently with Alicia Garza, another of BLM’s co-founders:
Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza’s new organization, Black Futures Lab, is fiscally sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association, which organized the raising of communist China’s flag over Boston City Hall last year.
The “donate” button on Black Futures Lab’s website takes users to a donation page hosted by the CPA, which notes that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.” The partnership between the two groups was first reported by the Daily Signal on Tuesday.
The CPA last year sponsored the raising of the Chinese flag over Boston City Hall to mark the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party creating the People’s Republic of China. The event sparked a protest from demonstrators opposed to the Chinese government’s actions in Hong Kong, 7News Boston reported at the time.
I would be remiss if I didn’t provide the video where Patrisse Cullors referred to herself as a “trained Marxist.”
One question still remains unanswered: “Trained” by whom?
Of course, nothing expresses support for communism more than BLM protesters chanting “Abolish capitalism, now.”
