BLM’s Marxian trappings may not be the worst thing about it. BLM’s Marxism may be merely “a silly affectation that appeals to leftists…[L]ike wearing a beret to an art exhibit, it’s a meaningless display of ideological conformity.”
Perhaps BLM is best understood as “an NGO, a non-governmental organization which provides services to its members and its patrons.”
In that case, the Ford Foundation, among others, is funding the “peaceful protests” which have caused up to $2 billion in property damage in 700 cities all around the U.S. Which in turn invites the question, Why would the Ford Foundation, among others, be doing that?
