In a statement and an open letter on the Black Lives Matter (BLM) website, the organization’s co-founder Patrisse Cullors is demanding payback for its support of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris in the presidential election, stating “We want something for our vote.”
“The truth is, getting Trump out of office was not the end all, be all. The work is just beginning,” read the statement of the domestic terror organization. “We want to be heard and our agenda to be prioritized.”
“We start by both holding the new president-elect and vice president-elect accountable to their campaign commitments of addressing systemic racism and by emphasizing our willingness to work with them,” added the BLM statement.
In her letter, Cullors wrote, “A well-thought out, community driven, fully resourced agenda that addresses the particular challenges faced by Black people must be a top priority. We want something for our vote. Without the resounding support of Black people, we would be saddled with a very different electoral outcome. In short, Black people won this election,” she insisted.
Cullors concluded by stating that she looks forward to meeting with Harris and Biden so they can “begin the immediate work of Black liberation,” adding that BLM “would like to be actively engaged in your Transition Team’s planning and policy work.”
By her own admission, Cullors and her fellow co-founders are Marxist-trained revolutionaries. Their aim is not merely “Black liberation,” whatever that means, but the complete and fundamental anti-American transformation of the United States into a socialist state.
