Patrisse Cullors, who helped start BLM, spent years learning under the tutelage of Eric Mann, a member of multiple radical-left extremist groups. These include Students for a Democratic Society and Weather Underground, the latter of which staged multiple bombings of government buildings and police stations back in the 1960s and 1970s.
Video footage from 2015 that recently resurfaced shows Cullors praising Mann for the powerful influence he had in her life. She is heard explaining to Jared Ball of the Real News Network that BLM exists to overthrow the current system and replace it with totalitarianism.
"The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame," Cullors admitted during the interview. "Myself and Alicia (another BLM co-founder) in particular are trained organizers," she added.
In further delineating the purpose of BLM, Cullors went on to admit that she and her colleagues are "trained Marxists" who "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," she went on to explain.
Cullors wrote a book entitled, When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir that reveals even more about origins of BLM and its Marxist ties. In it, she tells of how the Labor / Community Strategy Center (LCSC) became her "first political home," and the place where she learned the ropes of communism directly from Mann, its director.
Described as "an urban experiment," the LCSC was a launching pad for Cullors to develop her community organizing skills. Its focus, by the way, is "on Black and Latino communities with deep historical ties to the long history of anti-colonial, anti-imperialist, pro-communist resistance to the U.S. empire."
In a nutshell, the LCSC is an organization centered around creating a revolution to overturn the American way of life as most people know it. Along with BLM and other domestic terrorist groups, it seeks to overthrow freedom and liberty and replace it with a communist dictatorship.
Weather Underground has similar goals, with perhaps a more sordidly violent history. As far back as 1969, the group was classified by the FBI as a domestic terrorist group, and one of its key agitators was none other than Mann, who helped launch multiple violent offensives at various targets.
One of these was the Harvard University Center for International Affairs, which was invaded by upwards of 30 Weather Underground "activists" who "roughed up" several staff members and employees as they fled for their lives.
These Weather Underground terrorists proceeded to spray vulgarity-laden graffiti all over the walls of the building, as well as throw rocks through windows. The group also cut all the phone wires to prevent anyone inside from calling the police.
If all of this sounds familiar from the recent riots propagated by BLM, Antifa, and other domestic terrorist groups, that is because these modern groups learned from groups of old, like Weather Underground, how to spread chaos, violence, and destruction in order to achieve their goals.
These same modern groups are also pressuring Joe Biden, their 2020 presidential hopeful, to adopt sweeping radical platforms for "change" that would drive the final nail in America's coffin.
"We ask that you revise your platform to ensure that the federal government permanently ends and ceases any further appropriation of funding to local law enforcement in any form and redirect those and additional resources towards much needed community-led and community-controlled public safety efforts," their letter to Biden, who is barely cognizant these days, reads.
