While it’s been known that Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors is a “trained Marxist,” as she reportedly put it in 2015, it’s since been discovered that she’s also a fan of one of the world’s most notorious dictators and mass murderers.
About 10 years ago in 2010, she delivered a speech hosted by the Labor/Community Strategy Center, a communist think tank based out of Los Angeles, one of the most wealthy cities in the United States.
During the speech, she brought up a book, “The Seven Components of Transformative Organizing Theory,” written by the think tank’s founder, Eric Mann,” according to Fox News.
She specifically recalled how, earlier that day, she’d watched as a young man picked up a copy of the book and compared it to “the “Little Red Book,” a compilation of quotes from deceased mass-murdering dictator Mao Zedong.
“I was at our publications table today, and I was speaking to this young person from Arizona who’s trying to fight SB1017, and he grabbed a book and he said it’s like Mao’s ‘Red Book,‘” Cullors recalled.
“And I was like, ‘Man, that’s what I was thinking!’ And it was just really cool to hear him make that connection. 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, and we can just kind of we need to build off of this,” she added.

SB1017 was a controversial anti-illegal alien bill signed into law by then-Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer in 2010.
As for Mao’s “Little Red Book” (or “Red Book,” as she called it), it was a cornerstone of Mao’s Cultural Revolution, a cultural movement beginning in the late 1960s in China that led to the deaths of up to an estimated 20 million people.
More than 260 observations from the Communist Chinese leader make up the book – titled “Quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong” – including topics like “correcting mistaken ideas” and class struggle, as well as the “mass line,” a key principle of Mao Zedong Thought, according to the BBC which noted that the leader’s famous comment that “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun” is also included.
“Originally produced in 1964 by the People’s Liberation Army — an early version was titled ‘200 Quotations from Chairman Mao’ — it soon became a key feature of the leader’s personality cult. The Ministry of Culture aimed to distribute a copy to every Chinese citizen and hundreds of new printing houses were built in order to achieve this,” the BBC noted.
The ownership and carrying of the book “became virtually mandatory” during the Cultural Revolution, with the punishment for violating this rule often being death.
As reportedly noted by Dr. Daniel Leese, a professor of Chinese history at the University of Freiburg, owning the book “became a way of surviving.”
And survival was not an easy task in Mao’s China:
That Cullors, one of three BLM founders, would be so fond of Mao’s work speaks to the subversive radicalism of the movement, though it does not come as a surprise.
According to the BBC, during the days of the Cultural Revolution, as millions were being systematically wiped out in China, the book was also “taken up by Western radicals such as the Black Panthers”
This trend of black power-themed movements embracing murderous dictators continues to this day, as evidenced by Cullors’ remarks — but also as evidenced by the tweets of Black Hammer, a revolutionary movement that purports to fight against so-called “oppressors” on behalf of the “Colonized proletariat.”
Yet, according to Black Hammer, “oppressors” include the likes of Anne Frank, a deceased Jewish girl who was murdered by deceased dictator Adolf Hitler’s Nazis during the Holocaust.

It’s almost as if they think Hitler was the good guy.

Undergirding all this Marxist rhetoric is an ignored reality that the black power movement is brimming with extremely volatile radicalism.
It’s the same radicalism that prompted a group of so-called Hebrew Israelites to harass the predominately white students of Covington Catholic High School in 2018 by calling them “white crackers,” fa–ots” and “incest kids.”
It’s the same radicalism that prompted BLM zealots to demand last year that white families give up their homes to black people.
And it’s the same radicalism that has BLM zealots convinced that the stealing and looting of property is perfectly justified.
The only difference between this radicalism and the radicalism of white power movements appears to be that one form of radicalism is virtually ignored (and sometimes even defended) by America’s institutions, whereas the other form is dubiously made out to be the greatest terrorist threat to the U.S.
As for Cullors, when she isn’t busy promoting the propaganda of mass-murdering dictators, she can be found “chilling” in a $1.4 two-home compound in Los Angeles.
Despite promoting communist ideals, Mao had also enjoyed surrounding himself with luxuries far beyond the reach of the so-called “proletariat.”
