Most Americans, regardless of political affiliations, would agree with the statement “black lives matter.”
Plenty of Americans, however, have been less-than-eager to throw their support behind Black Lives Matter, the far-left organization that bears the name of this truthful phrase and has also been pretty honest about their decidedly Marxist beliefs.
That is, until now.
The group that has also inspired a movement of widespread peaceful protests that always seem to suspiciously precede rather violent ones has now mysteriously scrubbed their “What We Believe” page from their website.

Conservatives and Christians aiming to spread awareness about the very anti-Christian, anti-capitalist, anti-police group have pointed to this informational page to underscore the accusation that they are, in fact, wildly radical.
It is certainly odd timing, because the page has been well-documented at this point. It appears to be unclear as to why they removed it, but, well the internet is forever.
“We are unapologetically Black in our positioning. In affirming that Black Lives Matter, we need not qualify our position. To love and desire freedom and justice for ourselves is a prerequisite for wanting the same for others.”
“We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence.”
“We engage comrades with the intent to learn about and connect with their contexts.”
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and ‘villages’ that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.”
“We foster a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking, or rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual (unless s/he or they disclose otherwise).”
In 2015, one of the group’s co-founders, Patrisse Cullors, now-famously said in an interview that she and the group’s other founders were “trained Marxists.”
“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular, we’re trained organizers. We are trained Marxists. We are super versed on ideological theories,” she said.
If they’re trying to hide their ideological underpinnings, I think it’s a little late.
