The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) announced that Black Lives Matter (BLM) co-founder and Marxist revolutionary Patrisse Cullors — who recently resigned from BLM amid controversy about her personal wealth — as the 2021 commencement speaker for the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
“Patrisse Cullors is at the heart — and the foundation — of a movement for human rights, social change and genuine equality under the law,” UCLA Luskin Dean Gary Segura said. “Her work and the work of those who follow is way past due.”
Cullors and BLM aren’t about equality under the law and human rights, which we already have. Their explicit aim is the subversion of the supposed white capitalist heteropatriarchy and the establishment of a communist collective led by lesbian women “of color.”
Cullors has also expressed support for the so-called Palestinians against “the imperialist project that’s called Israel,” which has nothing to do with the police brutality many people believe her organization was founded to address. She and BLM support the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement and radicals like convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh and convicted cop killer Assata Shakur.
This is the woman whose belief system and message UCLA chose to deliver the commencement address to its graduating students.
