WASHINGTON—A new special report on cultural Marxism is urging Congress to hold hearings on Black Lives Matter (BLM) organizations.
America’s political leaders shouldn’t shy away from investigating any organizations with the words “Black Lives Matter” in their titles for fear of the “racist” label, said the report’s authors Mike Gonzalez, an expert at the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, and Katharine Gorka, a national security expert and former research fellow with the Foundation.
“Because BLM organizations have been the vector for the introduction of cultural Marxism into the lives of all Americans, getting serious about the threat that the BLM organizations represent is the most immediate, and easiest, thing that Americans can do to confront Marxism,” the report wrote.
The authors define cultural Marxism as a more sophisticated and nuanced version of Marxism led by American Marxists “under the pretense of social justice.” Instead of pitting workers against capitalists, cultural Marxists use race and gender to drive wedges between various racial groups and children and parents to destroy the nuclear family in America, the authors said.
The report argues that critical race theory—a framework that views America as systemically racist—in education, America’s war on climate change, and corporate America’s environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) rules are all parts of Marxist strategies.
At a Monday discussion about this report at the Foundation, Gonzalez told the audience that it’s legal to be a communist in the United States, but people should be aware of the BLM leaders’ Marxist beliefs and intentions.
According to the U.S. Crisis Monitor, 633 riots took place in 2020 after the death of George Floyd, Gonzalez said in a previous Epoch Times interview. The Insurance Information Institute noted that these riots were the costliest civil unrest in U.S. history, with insured losses estimated at over $2 billion.
“I think the country should know whether you [leaders of BLM organizations] have unleashed this level of violence and have had these riots because you believe in these ideas,” Gonzalez said at the Monday event.
Leaders of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF), an umbrella organization for the BLM movement, had openly said they were “trained Marxists,” and they should be the subject of congressional investigations, according to the special report’s authors.
Alicia Garza, one of the BLMGNF founders, said at a Left Forum convention, “It’s not possible for a world to emerge where black lives matter if it’s under capitalism. And it’s not possible to abolish capitalism without a struggle against national oppression and gender oppression.” Left Forum is a Marxist organization.
Sebastian Gorka, a former strategist to President Donald Trump and host of the “America First” radio show, praised the paper as “crucial” in addressing a new Marxist challenge different than that in the Cold War.
“The challenge has so utterly transmogrified from an external kinetic military one to an internal political one. And BLM activists have rights, but they’re undermining the Constitution with those rights,” he added.
