Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, declared that she was mentored for many years in political organizing and Marxist ideology by a radical domestic terrorist associated with Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.
Breitbart News reports that Eric Mann, who mentored Cullors for over a decade, was a member of radical groups Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and the Weather Underground, which bombed government buildings and police stations in the 1960s and 1970s.
In an interview with Democracy Now!, Cullors named Mann, an avowed communist revolutionary, as her personal mentor. Mann was the New England coordinator for SDS in 1968. The next year, terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn split off into a more radical wing, the Weather Underground, calling for violent “direct action” over civil disobedience. Mann led a group of Weathermen who carried out such violence.
Do black lives matter? Of course. But if you support Black Lives Matter, you support domestic terrorism.
