Who Is the BLM Global Network Foundation?

Their objective is to slowly destroy our core principles as a nation and replace them with pseudo-Marxism.

With protestors taking to the streets all over the United States to protest police brutality after the killings of unarmed Black men, the phrase “Black Lives Matter” has become synonymous with the movement. Regardless of where you find yourself on the ideological spectrum, a significant percentage of those protesting have done so peacefully, but it’s the violent protestors and antifa thugs that continue to get most of the attention. The media would have it no other way; after all, who wants to watch continuous news about protestors marching peacefully. That’s boring. For a news media that’s become all about ratings and being first, they only care about what suits that agenda.

What do I mean in the paragraph above, you might ask? Well, did you know that a recent Gallup poll “found that 65% of U.S. adults support the protests. Additionally, 53% said the protests ‘will help’ public support for equality and racial justice.” This reveals that Americans are more on the same page than it would appear based on the 24/7 cable news cycle. Peaceful protests have been drowned by looters, rioters and antifa thugs, feeding into a media narrative of downright divisiveness.

However, the focus of this column isn’t on that, but rather on something that gets very little attention, and that is the main Black Lives Matter organization, which was started by Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors. Did you know there was a BLM organization? Well, there is, and it’s named Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation.

Now, you might think the organization is synonymous with the movement, but that’s not the case, so I want to be clear about separating the movement from the organization. There’s a movement of people who are protesting police brutality with the intent of articulating that Black lives should matter equally to all other lives. Then there’s the BLM organization, and the two aren’t synonymous.

No one knows what the BLM organization does or how it spends its money, but one thing we do know is that it gets a lot of money and from Fortune 500 companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, Nabisco, Gatorade, Airbnb and Warner record labels, a music record company. Microsoft donated $250,000; Airbnb gave $500,000; Nabisco gave $500,000. In total, millions of dollars were given to this group. Are funds going towards salaries? Are funds going towards civic engagement or social community programs for needy families? The reality is no one knows because there’s no transparency. However, there should be, and let me tell you why.

The creators of Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation believe, maintain and teach values that are undemocratic and antithetical to America’s beliefs and the ideals. They teach against the idea of a nuclear family with a father and mother in the household and instead espouse the benefits of what they refer to as a “village.” I have no idea what that means. Still, the idea that we shouldn’t continue to reinforce the importance of a two-parent household is absurd. It goes against statistical data on children’s success.

In a 2015 video, BLM Global Network Foundation co-founder Patrisse Cullors said that she and her fellow co-founders were “trained Marxists.” Marxism formed the basis for communism; it’s what Lenin based his ideology on in Russia. If that’s not anti-American and anti-democratic, then I’m not sure what is. And $1 million in donations to an organization that isn’t required to be transparent with their expenditures is problematic, particularly because of the values they espouse and their mission of spreading those extremist views to America’s youth.

Their objective is to slowly destroy our core principles as a nation and replace them with pseudo-Marxism. They’re doing so by painting America as a racist country with no likelihood to improve. This is despite our history proving that the United States has made considerable progress and that a great majority of Americans today, unlike any time in our nation’s history, would like to continue to progress forward.

All corporations in the United States should immediately stop giving to BLM Global Network Foundation and, Congress should start an investigation into the organization to see where donations are going and how they’re being spent. They should also be investigated for Marxism and attempting to run a coup through ideological dissemination of values not consistent with our own. Be wary of this organization and their goal because as one of their co-founders states, they’re “trained Marxists” who are interested in spreading a Marxist ideology.
