Black Lives Matter founder Patrisse Cullors: "We are trained Marxists" and 'want revenge'

Well, there falls the world's smallest mask. Introducing: BLM founder Patrisse Cullors (link). Of course, we saw the Marxist smoking gun a while ago on the gofundme page of BLM UK: "We're guided by a commitment to dismantle imperialism, capitalism, white-supremacy, patriarchy and the state structures (...)." But now we have finally found Exhibit A, and there is clarity once and for all.

In the run-up to BLM's first conference in Cleveland at The Real News Network in 2015, Cullors responds to the "loving criticism from an elder of the struggle" that the movement may lack ideological coherence and, like Occupy, may be diluted. To which she replies at 1:03: "We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia [Garza, co-founder, link] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed in ideological theory." Well, two of the three founders are explicitly Marxists.

And then about her quote tweet below. Because there the even smaller mask falls under the Marxist mask. At the beginning of this month we already mused that we could not get Nietzsche's text The Tarantulas out of our minds. That text is about activists masking their will for revenge as a call for equality and justice, and more than once we got tarantula vibes from BLM guys. Anyway, see below, commented by Cullors in a language we don't speak (but it seems approving): "We will avenge the suffering of our ancestors."

Yeah, you know, not okay. And leaving these people uncontested has a price. "Mistrust all in whom the impulse to punish is powerful. They are people of a low sort and stock; the hangman and the bloodhound look out of their faces. Mistrust all who talk much of their justice! Verily, their souls lack more than honey And when they call themselves the good and the just, do not forget that they would be Pharisees, if only they had —power. "
