In Part 1 of this series exposing the Black Lives Matter organizations’ brainwashing of American youth, I outlined the 13 guiding principles for BLM and discussed the dangers of teaching their curriculum in schools. Many American parents have no idea that their children are being taught this radical Leftist garbage, but it’s slowly taking over our national education system.
In this installment, I am focusing on the organization’s radical Marxist roots and how BLM is pushing an ideological and economic system that resulted in the deaths of 100 million people in the 20th Century. Despite the catastrophic misery and death caused by Marxism, the idea lives on, and groups such as BLM are keeping the rotten system alive, even if they have to indoctrinate our children to do so.
The New York Post reported, “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 movement’s 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.’”
The Federalist reported, “KIPP Philadelphia Public Schools has its own plan to ‘work towards an anti-racist agenda.’ Jessica Cunningham Akoto, CEO of the charter school network KIPP Philadelphia, wrote a letter outlining its new plan to focus on ‘learning mindsets and practices rooted in Black liberation.’
Black liberation is a Marxist theological and social movement that emerged in the late 1960s. It conceives of America as ‘systemically racist.’ Accordingly, America’s institutions are also considered racist and as conceived to perpetuate racism.”
Believers of Black Liberation Theology have similar beliefs as those who tried to push Christian Liberation Theology Liberation during the 1980s. The proponents of this ideology tried to make Christianity compatible with Marxism. Humberto Belli, a former Marxist, explained why adherents to liberation theology believed that Christ was a socialist:
‘Revolutionary political action becomes, in theologies of liberation, the way to make Christian love for the poor truly effective. Failure to engage in the revolutionary struggle would be a failure to respond to the poor’s yearning for liberation and would place Christians in the camp of the oppressors. Since it is in the poor that Jesus dwells in a hidden but real way, for Christians not to commit themselves to the revolution would be to turn their backs on Christ.’”
Now, it appears that the Communist Chinese are involved with funding the BLM Agenda. The Federalist reported that “the Black Futures Lab, a venture of Black Lives Matter founder Alicia Garza, is sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA), an organization that works with China’s communist government to push its agenda in the United States.”
Sadly, the BLM activists are winning. Leftism has been crammed down students’ throats for years, and it is showing. A Harris poll taken last year showed that half of Americans aged 18-39 said they would “prefer living in a socialist country.” The most recent Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation poll found that 70 percent of the millennial generation said they would likely vote for a socialist.
If BLM’s Marxist curriculum is successful, one day it might be 100% of students who want to live in a socialist country, because they wouldn’t know any better.
Check back tomorrow on FreedomWire for Part 3, as we further explore the radical Black Lives Matter curriculum being taught to young Americans.
