Patrisse Cullors, the anti-American Marxist running Black Lives Matter says that the U.S. flag is a “symbol of hate” and that she will force a new “revolution” by non-democratic means. Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-avowed Marxist, insists that she stands by her comments that the American flag is a symbol of hate. Patrisse Cullors BLM
She also said that she and her fellow activists do not intend to bring “change” to America through government, elected officials, or the ballot box. She intends to bring that “change” by other means.
Cullors’ remarks were recently re-discovered from a July 2015 interview on the radio program Uprising with Sonali (video at end of post):
The National Pulse explained Cullors’ anti-American comments:

“I think that’s powerful. I also think it’s important that we talk about the American flag, which is a symbol of lots of hate as well, and I’ve really been appreciative of Black Lives Matter members who’ve said, yes the Confederate Flag is a terrible symbol of a particular historical moment, but the American flag is also a terrible symbol of our particular moment,” she notes.
Cullors also reveals that the American flag is not a symbol she “stands by”:
“I appreciate the Confederate flag burning, I think it’s a power symbol, and it’s really amazing to be alive watching people burn it down, and I want to question, too, are we saying then that the American flag is a symbol that we are standing by? It’s not a symbol I stand by.”
During the interview, Cullors describes how she voted for former President Barack Obama claims her preferred “revolution” will not come through the ballot box:
“I think I was too naive at that moment to really understand, like oh actually, Obama is not going to be the revolution. No elected official is going to be the revolution.”
While discussing BLM tactics, Cullors also encourages “white allies” to “infiltrate white supremacist groups”:
“White allies, I need you to take more risks. Some of you really need to contemplate infiltrating white supremacist groups, and that is a tactic that many anti-racist white people have done. They’ve infiltrated white supremacist groups as a way to be a detail, as a way to to tell other members.”
“So that is a call I’m really serious about,” she reiterates.
Cullors made news in April when it was reported that this self-professed Marxist was the proud owner of several million-dollar homes. And even more recently, her movement announced it supported the terrorist group Hamas in its conflict with Israel years after announcing its support of the anti-Semitic BDS movement.
