I am deeply concerned about our young people being introduced to Marxism as a good thing. They are too young to understand what the effects of Marxism and Communism were and are to the freedom of people. We fought wars to keep these harmful ideology from spread as much as possible at the time.

Students of history have seen it all before. The Marxist revolutions of the 20th century that wracked Russia, China, Vietnam, North Korea and elsewhere piled up victims approaching 100 million. Thus is the bitter harvest of the perpetually angry, steeped in Marxism and deaf to the call for human kindness (Washington Post 2021).

Co-founders of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza, are followers of an ideology that could not be more anti-American and proclaim that: “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” (The National Pulse).

A briefly stated definition is that: Marxism is a soulless ideology incompatible with the Judeo-Christian foundations of this nation. [We are] Americans wishing to advance the Founders’ struggle “to form a more perfect union” should forswear the clenched fists of Black Lives Matter and wield the affirmative force of forgiveness (Washington Post 2021).

Ms. Cullors is unapologetic in describing Black Lives Matter founders as “trained Marxists,” so it’s worth examining the words that inspire their deeds. Marxism, the 19th-century worldview systematized by German revolutionary Karl Marx, is fundamentally atheistic. It subscribes to a theory that matter — physical stuff — comprises the fundamental reality of human existence. The transcendent experiences of the human heart are regarded as nothing more than biochemistry — fantasies of brain function. Stuff, whether molecule or man, is just soulless stuff. In short, matter doesn’t really matter (Washington Post 2021).

Americans watching the Black Lives Matter demonstrations on TV have been witnessing the handiwork of “trained Marxists” practicing the dialectic. The hair-trigger harpies screaming obscenities in the faces of police officers attempting to keep the peace, the masked bullies yanking down statues of historical figures, the hooded guerrillas hurling Molotov cocktails — all are putting Marxist ideology into action.
