BLM Founders Support Marxism, Convicted Cop-Killer; Receive Terrorist-Connected Funding

Protests continued in Rochester, New York, last night over the death of Daniel Prude, despite the police chief's announcement Wednesday that he and other leaders from his team are resigning.

Backed by Black Lives Matter, the demonstrators are now calling for the mayor's resignation and defunding the police.

Given the tactics and growing destruction of ongoing protests, critics are raising questions about the goals of the organization behind the movement.

As CBN News and other outlets have reported, the three founders of Black Lives Matter identify themselves as Marxists.

And one of them, Alicia Garza, says her inspiration comes from a domestic terrorist named Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, who was convicted of murdering a New Jersey state trooper, "execution-style".

The FBI Most Wanted list says, "Chesimard and her accomplices opened fire on the troopers. One trooper was wounded and the other was shot and killed execution-style at point-blank range."

Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner reports that Black Lives Matter funding is funneled through the left-wing group called Thousand Currents, which includes a convicted terrorist named Susan Rosenberg on its board of directors. Rosenberg was pardoned by President Bill Clinton.
