BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution By Mike Gonzalez


BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution

By Mike Gonzalez

In the explosive new book, BLM: The Making of a New Marxist Revolution, Sr. Fellow Heritage Foundation Mike Gonzalez takes on a terrorist organization that is methodically destroying America - Black Lives Matter - and exposes them for what they really are revealing grifting on a major scale.

Back in 2020, BLM, which says its mission is to "eradicate white supremacy," quickly stoked anger over George Floyd's death and unleashed protests and riots in American cities, precipitating great changes throughout American society. These were not spontaneous events; Americans did not suddenly rise up in righteous anger, take to the streets, and demand not just that police departments be defunded but that all the structures, institutions, and systems of the United States - all supposedly racist - be overhauled.

Incredibly, Wikipedia still identifies BLM with this completely false narrative: "Black Lives Matter protests have been overwhelmingly peaceful; when violence does occur, it is often committed by police or by counter-protesters. Despite this, opponents have falsely portrayed the movement as violent." Because of media portraying this terrorist group as a peaceful movement, many hundreds of thousands of people and corporations have been bamboozled into donating money that has never been accounted for.

In BLM, you'll learn:

·    That BLM's founders are radical Marxists whose express goal is to dismantle America - especially the nuclear family;

·    Why the money Americans contributed to BLM is not being used to fight racial discrimination at all;

·    That the three leaders of BLM - Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza and Melina Abdullah - used donations to buy a $6 million dollar home in California;

·    That the IRS has no idea where the millions of dollars in donations went; and

·    People and corporations who donated to BLM have filed many complaints that the funds never reached the black community; and

·    That BLM has not reported to the IRS what is has done with more than $60 million it has grifted from the vulnerable public;

The 12,000 or so demonstrations and 633 related riots that followed Floyd's death took organizational muscle. The movement's grip on institutions from the classroom to the ballpark required ideological commitment. That muscle and commitment were provided by the various BLM organizations.

This book examines who the BLM leaders are, delving into their backgrounds and exposing their agendas - something the media has so far refused to do. These people are shown to be avowed Marxists who say they want to dismantle our way of life. Along with their fellow activists, they make destructive use of social media to spread their message and organize marches, sit-ins, statue vandalism and removal, and riots. In 2020, they seized upon the video showing George Floyd's suffering as a pretext to unleash a nationwide insurgency.

Certainly, no person of good will could object to the proposition that "black lives matter" as much as any other human life. But Americans need to understand how their laudable moral concern is being exploited for purposes that a great many of them would not approve. This ambiguous phrase has become ubiquitous in America and around the world implying that the eradication of systemic racism is their intent, when in fact they're bilking donors out of millions of dollars to line their own pockets.

"Mike Gonzalez shows why Americans must take seriously the architects of Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and Critical Race Theory. He systematically reveals how these Marxists seek to transform America into something unimagined by the Founders and unrecognizable to most Americans today. His diagnosis of the threat is superbly argued and his wake-up call sorely needed."
