Black Lives Matter Website Scrubs Section Calling for Destruction of ‘Nuclear Family’
Coincidentally, polling has BLM popularity down substantially over the last three months
The Black Lives Matter organization deleted its “What We Believe” section. It has come under criticism since it was filled with Marxist language, including the wish to destroy the “nuclear family.”

We make our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We dismantle the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” so that they can mother in private even as they participate in public justice work.
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.
Can someone point me where it is written that mothers have to work “double shifts” and the family has to be a patriarchy?
The language under this section went into specifics. the “About” section has stated goals, but not in-depth language.
The right has long criticized the BLM website for its Marxist language. It did not help that co-founder Patrisse Cullors “identified herself and fellow co-founders of the organization as ‘trained Marxists.'”
BLM started in 2013 after a jury acquitted George Zimmerman. It gained steamed again after George Floyd’s death in late May.
But it did not last long since the BLM support has gone down by 12% in the last three months:
The recent decline in support for the Black Lives Matter movement is particularly notable among White and Hispanic adults. In June, a majority of White adults (60%) said they supported the movement at least somewhat; now, fewer than half (45%) express at least some support. The share of Hispanic adults who support the movement has decreased 11 percentage points, from 77% in June to 66% today. By comparison, support for the Black Lives Matter movement has remained virtually unchanged among Black and Asian adults.

Marxism: So right that if we told you the truth you would die from euphoria.
Is there any more doubt that the Communist Chinese are funding them and also channeling hundreds of millions illegally to the Democrat Party……
Um, yes. Since there’s not even a shred of evidence for this fantasy of yours, there’s lots of doubt. Nothing but doubt.
If there were evidence, you still would make the same fatuous claim. Try using your “vast” intelligence and search that fancy new geegaw called the internet and see what the evidence is.
You need to change your screen name to Pauline Kael from Millhouse. You know, the woman who thought that what she knew would determine who won the 1968 Presidential race.
More proof that the Marxists and D’Rats (pardon the redundancy) badly overplayed their hands. America is in bad shape, but not that bad. It must be hard to hide your beliefs from the light of day.
It’s not redundant. There are Democrats who are not Marxists, they just don’t mind playing with Marxists for mutual advantage. And there are many Marxists who think Democrats are right-wing extremists.
BLM is full of white liberals.
Rather white, black or fluorescent green with envy, BLM members should be held held accountable.
impostor black, white female liberals
About 99.9% methinks – about as pure lily white as Ivory Soap…
Um, yeah. The internet is pretty much forever and that scrubbed page has likely been screen-capped and memorialized many times by now.
Of course, screen-capped pages are evidence of nothing. Everyone knows that. In time their validity can be thrown into extreme doubt rather easily.
Unless a page’s source is locked, time-stamped, and signed, there’s no way to ever “prove” that it ever even existed the way some screen cap might claim. Then, of course, the issue comes down to the claimed authority that it is time-stamped with and the continued validity of the hashes used to do all that …
And lefties have no problem denying something that is right in front of your face, normally.
Over here in the real world, facts and the receipts confirming those facts matter. l don’t give a crap what anyone on the left thinks about that.
You forgot the aftermath of Michael Brown’s attempted murder of Darren Wilson. That was a major turning point in BLM’s history. I don’t think I’d ever heard of BLM until then.
Yeah, I’m not even sure it’s true that they started with Zimmerman. I remember it as the Floyd lies that and “hands up, don’t shoot” that started BLM.
So what you heard of is somehow history? You probably don’t know that Ferguson was on the lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot” while the truth was 180 degrees different?
You know, the world is not you, and because you never heard of sometnhing doesn’t make it true. Go look at when BLM says the organization started. Their website says “6 years strong”.
Religious American communities have always taken care of each other far better than any gaggle of marxists have anywhere in the world, ever. There’s a reason all of the hospitals were named “Saint Something” or “Mt. Sinai” … before the federal government decided that it was the one that had been responsible for people’s health care all along and was prepared to “take over again” … LOL.
I think the last place you find comfortable people is in any marxist area. Comfort isn’t what marxism is about. Misery is the innate nature of marxism. And stagnation. Lots and lots of stagnation.
Over the past 1400 years Muslims have held the prize for stagnation and ignorance. Brutal, stupid, inbred & volatile.
Look, the destruction of the nuclear family, by Democrats and their affiliates, has been going on for a long, long time. That was the main purpose of both government welfare systems and abortion. Welfare rendered the need for husbands and fathers participation in a family unit unnecessary, except for procreation. The state became the bread winner. And abortion allowed a woman to simply kill her unborn child on a whim. Other factors also developed, such as easy divorce, free love, recreational sex outside of marriage, etc, which again reduced the need for family commitment.
Remember this important point, historically, the Progressive movement has always been in love with Communism. International Communism has never been true to Marxist theory. It has always been practiced as totalitarian rule of society by a privileged elite oligarchy, for the benefit of that oligarchy. Progressive Presidents have always been surrounded by communists, FDR being most notable. They used to lie about it. Now, they have stopped and people as shocked.
“Free love” and “recreational sex” don’t necessarily lead to procreation. The real missing ingredient is “responsibility.”
Welfare led to an abandonment of personal responsibility, and that is at the root of the problems it caused. Too many recipients perceived it as a “handout” instead of a “hand up.”
The Rainbow excludes black, brown, and takes gay pride in the shredded remains of white.
Some, Select Black Lives Matter is incorporated under the Pro-Choice quasi-religion of the Progressive Church a la Planned Parenthood and diversity dogma (i.e. denial of individual dignity, denial of individual conscience, normalization of color blocs, color quotas, and affirmative discrimination) and class-based sociopolitical constructs.
“Can someone point me where it is written that mothers have to work ‘double shifts’ and the family has to be a patriarchy?”
What struck me was that one of the shifts is (and maybe “must”) be social justice work. BLM, I suppose, doesn’t support moms who actually work for wages to support their families, only moms who do party-approved work.
They solved the “double-shift” problem by eliminating the wage-earning job with the shutdown so that people won’t be distracted from the more important party work.
The BLM riots wouldn’t exist in Portland if the participants had to go to their job the next day and the bars were open until 2AM. It seems that the riots are the only socially approved venue one can go toto “hook up” thee days. Kate “shut-er-down” Brown had to kill the economy in order to free up the now disenfranchised whities to go and protest about conditions that they had themselves not experienced before (nor likely after) March 15th.
All that sacrifice, and Trump will still win, likely by a bigger margin following their ill-advised antics.
The funny thing about the net. Once its out there it’s out there.
No amount of scrubbing will get rid of the smell!
No nuclear families! We want green and sustainable families only!
Damn, I really liked ambushing liberal family members with the website of the org they claim to support.
Powerlineblog compares the background of the Russian Revolution starting in 1905 with the BLM/Antifa chaos in our cities today.
They get nowhere without the aid and assistance of wealthy progressives.
