Resurfaced footage indicates that Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors allegedly advocated for Israel’s destruction during a public speech in 2015.
“For our generation, Palestine is like South Africa. We are doomed if we don’t get brave and speak out against the imperialist project that is Israel,” Cullors said at a Harvard Law School gathering.
According to Fox News:
“A panel called ‘Globalizing Ferguson: Racialized Policing and International Resistance’ was held at Harvard Law School in April 2015 by the Human Rights Program. The panel included Cullors and other campaigners. Throughout the discussion, Cullors talked about her trip to the West Bank and Gaza in 2015 with other radical left activists. According to her, Israelis and ‘Zionists’ were to blame for the ‘violence’ and ‘terror’ she saw against Palestinians.”
“She informed those present that one way for Americans to push back was to become part of the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movements, which aims to put pressure on Israel to modify its policies regarding Palestinians.”
In May 2021, Cullors quit because of the debate over her personal wealth. However, both the far-left activist as well as the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) said that the choice wasn’t based on money.
Breitbart News said this:
“The ’37-year-old social justice dreamer,’ according to real estate website Dirt.com, observed that Cullors—also going by her married, hyphenated surname, Khan-Cullors—had purchased a $1.4 million home in the Topanga neighborhood of LA. According to the New York Post, the Cullors purchased four homes. One of them was a ranch in the state of Georgia with a private aircraft hangar. Cullors is a ‘trained Marxist,’ as are many other well-known Black Lives Matter leaders.’
“The disclosures sparked further protest from activists, and also spurred `calls for a third-party investigation into the movement’s finances.”
A group called Black Lives Matter Grassroots released a statement earlier this week that supported Hamas’ acts. Hamas is the Palestinian terror group that attacked Israel this week, killing at least 1,200 and hurting 2,700 more.
The group Black Lives Matter Grassroots, which is made up of 26 local chapters, claimed it stands “in support of the Palestinian people.”
BLM FLASHBACK: In 2015, BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors spoke about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, stating:
“Palestine is our generation’s South Africa…if we don’t step up boldly and courageously to end the imperialist project called Israel, we’re doomed."

“At a time when the world is facing important questions about self-determination and when we all want and pray for peace, we must always stand with those who are being abused,” the statement said. “People who have been through decades of apartheid and unimaginable violence should not be judged for their resistance. Instead, it should be seen as a last-ditch effort to protect themselves.”
The group Black Lives Matter Grassroots also asked the U.S. government to stop giving money to Israel.
“The whole apartheid system must be taken down for lasting peace to come,” the group said. “The war against the Palestinians must end. We want the U.S. government to stop supporting war right away and use the $4 billion it spends every year to fix the damage done by U.S.-backed wars, military air raids, coups, and other destabilizing actions against repressed people all over the world.’
