Mark Levin played this on his show last night, but I haven’t seen it anywhere else.
Really important to understand what he’s asking and how she answers.
He wants to know, are you guys actually committed to the issues you discuss—or are you committed to total revolution?
She answers pretty clearly the latter. “Black Lives” are merely the issue of the moment.
It’s long been the key question for communists. If you’re just in this for higher wages, reform, etc., you’re no better than a trade unionist. You’re not committed to toppling the system, and you’re not to be trusted.
Her answer “we’re trained Marxists” is meant to reassure.
