Juneteenth, a day to recognize black freedom, will be celebrated this year by the two black Marxist lesbians who started Black Lives Matter (BLM). With fatherless families disproportionately affecting black communities, black Marxist lesbianism hardly seems like an acceptable alternative.
BLM’s dedication to the destruction of the nuclear family is well-known, but the militant lesbian orientation of two of the founders—an orientation now called “queerness”—is usually not highlighted.
The National Center for Lesbian Rights honored BLM founders Alicia Garza, Patrisse Kahn-Cullors, and Opal Tometi in 2016. Opal Tometi and Alicia Garza are identified as “queer black women.”
Garza is described by her publisher as “a queer social justice activist and Marxist.” Cullors has said, “Myself and Alicia, in particular, are trained organizers; we are trained Marxists.”
The organization paid tribute to black cop-killer Assata Shakur, living in Cuba under the protection of the Communist regime there.
With a new Pew poll finding that public support for BLM has fallen to a three-year low, we can only expect a steeper decline when the “queer communism” roots of the movement are finally exposed to public view.
The poll says, “A majority of Americans say the increased focus on issues of race and racial inequality in the past three years hasn’t led to changes that have improved the lives of Black people.”
Perhaps this is because the movement was designed to promote and highlight sexual perversion, a destructive force in communities of all races.
Even before the advent of BLM, however, homosexuality was being exploited by the communist movement in America.
The May 19th Communist Organization, a spin-off from the Weather Underground that waged a terrorist war on America in the 1970s and 80s, was dominated by lesbians. These fanatical women, the subject of the book Tonight We Bombed the U.S. Capitol, operated under the idea that “testosterone poisoning” had saturated American life. Part one is titled “The New Sisterhood."
The book Tonight We Bombed the U.S. Capitol documents how “most” members of the May 19th Communist Organization were lesbians. One “lesbian collective” vowed to “stamp out” the “Y” chromosome, which signifies the male gender.
The author, William Rosenau, also documents that its parent organization, the Weather Underground, “took a hard line on motherhood” and that “women who appeared overly devoted to their babies were reprimanded for a purported lack of revolutionary commitment.”
As an example, one member of the May 19 terrorist group was Judith Clark, a red-diaper baby who sought to become pregnant as a “conscious lesbian” without having sex with a man. She obtained sperm from a male revolutionary and was inseminated and gave birth.
Eventually, Rosenau says, Clark decided to concentrate on the communist revolution, rather than motherhood, and her daughter was raised “collectively” by other May 19th members.
My column “The Origins of Queer Communism” documents the Russian roots of the movement and how it was exported to the West under the rubric of “Cultural Marxism” developed by the Frankfurt School.
The communists brag about their role. In an article “Before Stonewall: Queer liberation’s Communist Party roots,” a writer for the Communist Party declared, with justification, that “The modern movement for queer liberation—or gay liberation to use the as-yet less inclusive terminology of the 1960s and ’70s—wouldn’t exist without the Communist Party USA.”
The article notes the role of CPUSA member Harry Hay, who “set the stage for a social and sexual revolution.” Hay wore dresses, an indication of what was to come.
Indeed, Leslie Feinberg, a Marxist member of the Workers World Party, actually started the transgender movement and reportedly said before he/she died, “Remember me as a revolutionary communist. Hasten the revolution!”
To understand where all of this is heading, the author of Communism for Kids, Bini Adamczak, writes that more advances will have to be made in the field of “queer politics,” using the strategies of Marxist revolution. Eventually, she says, “modern reproduction technologies” could be used to “completely abolish the sexes.”
In this context, two black lesbians are currently featured on the show Brat Loves Judy, specifically geared to blacks and broadcast on a “black streaming service” known as ALLBLK.
In the latest development, Da Brat is expecting a baby with “wife” Jesseca “Judy” Dupart. The father is an anonymous donor.
Meanwhile, the influential group Lesbians Who Tech is hosting a “2023 Pride Summit” featuring Gretchen Whitmer, governor of Michigan.
Described as “the largest LGBTQ technology community in the world,” the group’s events in the past have featured speakers such as Hillary Clinton, Vice-President Kamala Harris, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Melinda Gates, Mary Trump, Rosie O’Donnell, Stacey Abrams, and Alicia Garza of Black Lives Matter.
Not all of these speakers are “queer,” but all clearly sympathize with the lesbian movement.
The article “Ten Black Lesbians Everyone Should Know” highlights a prominent Marxist, former Communist Party official Angela Davis, who turned lesbian after serving the interests of the old Soviet Union. She received the Lenin Peace Prize and also emerged as a poster girl for the animal rights group PETA.
At Brandeis University, she was mentored by German philosopher Herbert Marcuse, an expert in Critical Theory, also known as Cultural Marxism, which was popularized in academia by the so-called Frankfurt School.
Under Marcuse, Brandeis University became what critics called a “School for Terrorists,” producing several female terrorists and extremists associated with the Weather Underground, including Naomi Jaffe, Susan Saxe, Katherine Ann Power, and Laura Whitehorn.
In another sensational case, Brandeis University graduate Aafia Siddiqui, known as “Lady Al Qaeda,” was sentenced to 86 years in prison for trying to kill American soldiers and was implicated in other terrorist plots.
“The formation and growth of the feminist movement have caused radical women to adopt the rhetoric and weapons used by male terrorists,” declared a report from the International Association of Chiefs of Police.
Indeed, a “progressive” media outlet called “Truthout” published a column that glorified Aafia Siddiqui, Lolita Lebron, Marilyn Buck, and terrorist lawyer Lynne Stewart. Lebron was among a group opening fire on the House of Representatives in 1954, wounding five members of Congress, in the name of Puerto Rican independence.
Buck was another Weather Underground member. She was given early release from federal prison by Obama Attorney General Eric Holder, who was deputy attorney general in the Clinton administration and involved in pardons for members of the Weather Underground at that time. Those released by President Clinton included Linda Evans and Susan Rosenberg, as well as members of the Cuban-supported terrorist group the FALN.
The Obama/Holder Justice Department falsely claimed that Buck had repented of her terrorist ways and called her release medically justified.
Buck helped bomb the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C. in 1983 and participated in freeing convicted cop-killer Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, from prison in 1979. The Obama Department of Justice dropped terrorism charges against another perpetrator of the 1983 Capitol bombing, Elizabeth Anna Duke, who is still technically a fugitive and “wanted” by the FBI.
Unlike the lesbian members of the group, author William Rosenau says police reports indicate that Marilyn Buck had sex with black male members of the Black Liberation Army, another terrorist group, and got pregnant but had an abortion.
Not to be outdone, the "sisterhood" is planning a June 24 “women's march” in Washington, D.C., mostly for the purpose of keeping abortion on demand.
"OUR MOVEMENT IS BIGGER THAN ROE," the pro-abortion decision, they say in all capital letters. "WE WILL NOT STOP UNTIL WE GET EVERYTHING WE CAME FOR."
