Black Lives Matter's 'Trained Marxist' Leader Scores Massive TV Deal
BLM co-founded Patrisse Cullors gets huge platform to push radical agenda
One of the founders of the Black Lives Matter organization has signed a massive new TV deal with Warner Bros. Television Group.
BLM's co-founder Patrisse Cullors, a self-proclaimed “trained Marxist,” signed the huge contract last week.
Cullors seeks to elevate black voices on television and promulgate the agenda of Black Lives Matter to a nationwide audience.
Along with community organizers Alicia Garza and Opal Tomet, Patrisse Cullors co-founded BLM in 2013.
The multiyear agreement is her first deal with a Hollywood studio, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“Building on her political activism, the Los Angeles native plans to work with the studio to develop scripted dramas and comedies, docuseries and animated programming for children, young adults and families,” the Times reported.
“Black voices, especially black voices who have been historically marginalized, are important and integral to today’s storytelling,” Cullors said in a Thursday statement.
“Our perspective and amplification is necessary and vital to helping shape a new narrative for our families and communities.”
“As a longtime community organizer and social justice activist, I believe that my work behind the camera will be an extension of the work I’ve been doing for the last twenty years,” Cullors added.
“I look forward to amplifying the talent and voices of other Black creatives through my work.”
Sports journalist Jason Whitlock blasted the TV deal, tweeting, “When are we going to wake up? This tells you everything you need to know.”

Whitlock was responding to a tweet that said, “Somebody needs to hear this: Black liberation isn’t brought to you by AT&T, sponsored by Wells Fargo, or managed by Roc Nation.
"And it certainly doesn’t come with a Warner Bros. Television deal, or a shoe from Nike. Y’all be safe out there.”
Cullors has acknowledged that the goals of her organization are explicitly political and rooted in Marxism.
As Neon Nettle reported last month, one of Cullors' fellow BLM co-founders has also recently teamed up with a pro-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) organization.
BLM leader Alicia Garza has reportedly partnered with the CCP-linked group, the "Chinese Progressive Association," to fund lobbying operations in America.
Garza has founded a new group called Black Futures Lab (BFL), which currently "seeks to engage advocacy organizations and legislators to advance local-, state- and federal-level policies."
BFL solicits donations on its website that are sent to the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA), according to The Daily Signal.
“Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association,” the website reads.
Founded in San Francisco in the early 1970s, CPA continues to be a partner of the Communist Party-ruled People's Republic of China.
