Watch BLM Founder Praises Book in Adoring Comparison to Killer Communist’s Manifesto


A vintage look back at a founder of the Black Lives Matter movement gives ammunition to those who liken the initials BLM to Black Liberal Marxists. The website National Pulse last week unearthed a 2010 video that showed Patrice Cullors, one of the founders of Black Lives Matter, promoting a book called “The Seven Components Of Transformative Organizing Theory” by Eric Mann. Mann was a member of the radical 1960s group The Weather Underground, which was linked to bombings of government and law enforcement targets, according to the Daily Caller. “I was speaking to this young person … he grabbed a book and he said, ‘It’s like Mao’s Red Book,’” she said. The Red Book was a collection of saying by Mao Zedong, and was required reading during China’s deadly Cultural Revolution when universities were shuttered. “And I was like, man, that’s what I was thinking, and it was just really cool to hear him make that connection, and I was like how about you buy like 10 to 15 of these books and you all have like a youth organizing group where you talk about it and you really try to engage this … We need to build off of this.”
