Marxist Leader Admits: BLM Riots Are ‘Rehearsals for USA Revolution’

Fact checked
Marxist leader Angela Davis admits BLM riots are rehearsals for U.S. revolution

Prominent Marxist activist Angela Davis has declared that the recent Black Lives Matter riots are merely “rehearsals for revolution” in the very near future.

Davis made the admission while speaking with filmmaker Ava DuVernay in an interview with Vanity Fair.

In the interview Davis warns that the violent BLM and Antifa protests across the country are the early stages of a larger far-left “revolution.”

Davis claims the civil unrest is needed to bring about lasting radical social and economic change.

“Sometimes we assume the most important work is the dramatic work—the street demonstrations,” Davis told DuVernay.

“I like the term that [Marxist cultural critic] John Berger used: Demonstrations are ‘rehearsals for revolution’.” reports: Angela Davis, who was a longtime member of the Communist Party USA, also expressed sympathy for rioters who are tearing down historic statues: “Those statues are our reminders that the history of the United States of America is a history of racism. So it’s natural that people would try to bring down those symbols.”

In their Vanity Fair conversation, Davis told DuVernay that the Black Lives Matter riots and “defund the police” movement represent the culmination of decades of radical left-wing activism.

“The protests offered people an opportunity to join in this collective demand to bring about deep change, radical change,” Davis said. “Defund the police, abolish policing as we know it now. These are the same arguments that we’ve been making for such a long time about the prison system and the whole criminal justice system. It was as if all of these decades of work by so many people, who received no credit at all, came to fruition.”

Angela Davis also equated capitalism with racism. “Capitalism has always been racial capitalism,” she told DuVernay. “Wherever we see capitalism, we see the influence and the exploitation of racism.”

She also pushed for free healthcare and childcare as a way of redressing racism. “Not only should there be free education, but there should be free childcare and there should be free health care as well. All of these issues are coming to a head. This is, as you said, a racial reckoning. A reexamination of the role that racism has played in the creation of the United States of America.”

Ava DuVernay acknowledged in a tweet that the editor of her interview with Davis was Ta-Nehisi Coates, the author and journalist whose 2014 Atlantic article “The Case for Reparations” reignited the push for slavery reparations.


  1. We will have to fight these domestic terrorists sooner or later. It’s easier sooner.

    The domestic terrorists of the BLM and ANTIFA are the militant wing of the Democrat Party evidenced by the fact that the Dems are still intentionally mischaracterizing the rioting, looting and arson as “peaceful protests”.The beast they created is now running out of control.

    But they don’t care. As far as the Dems are concerned, you, your family and your business are just expendable collateral damage in their savage quest for power.

    If this is what the Democrats will do to gain power, imagine what they will do when they get it!!

    You have been warned, America!!

    It may be your last chance!!

    TRUMP 2020!!

    • Angela Davis is nothing but garbage,,,she hasn’t change her stupid moronic BS…i am surprised she is still living…..trump 2020

    • Even when POTUS Trump wins in a landslide, we will have to fight to save this Constitutional Republic and capitalistic economic system. It is well worth fighting and winning for. What the h e l l are they even fighting for? Do they even know? Do they even care? Is it really a cause worth dying for? Ours is.

    • Oh yeah right and have the UN condemn you and so then,exactly what theyre waiting for enable russia china etcerera to all invade you as human rights abusers and undemocratic monsters?the minute some dumb arsed red necks start playing ku klux klan Americas finished on tbe world stage as ever being able to represent democracy again Democracy will be allowed to be buried along with freedon by massive propagandas from privately owned media Barons and the Kingdom s will resurface .

      • Redneck, KKK? The other side is already killing people that don’t agree with them. Get real, we’re already at the boiling point. As far as Russia and China… The President and our Military have that under control. And the UN? No fuks given. Blue helmets make great targets. GTFO with that BS noise.

        • Do you have ANY idea how many combat age males they have in China? MORE than 1 for each man, woman and child in this country. THINK about that because the way I see it right now, half of the traitors in this country CAN’T be depended on to defend it.

          • Do you have any idea how much water is between US and them? Do you have any idea about the tensions between India and China…. our friend by the way. Plus Japan, South Korea, and a host of other nations. China has been circled, and already is feeling the heat from the Kung Flu, that they started. The world is angry with them. You’re not very informed are you? You sound like you’ve already given up… hoisted the white flag. A cowards way of thinking. Start thinking positive, life is much easier that way. Like the President said… we are winning; despite those of you that can’t be depended on. Trump 2020!

          • I hear that Aerosmith sing playing in the background as you drone on. How does it go again? Oh yeah, ‘Dream on, Dream on, Dream on,
            Dream until your dreams come true’…

          • We can only hope, but I fear their government will not go as easily (Tiananmen Square) as ours have been on BLM/antifa. The infiltration of our government has been going on for years.

  2. Because,Obama declared the Pipe the moral authority for rule of law and so totally betrayed EVERYTHING the entire democratic revolution and the war of independence were for. H appointed an AUTOCRAT as the top dog of the whole heap of everything. The rule of law.. And the Pope is Prince Georges Godfather Its all in the family.

  3. Marxism will never elevate blacks, not really , its a tool of total enslavement and absolute government tyranny where the people have nothing but their labour to offer in exchange for ” benevolent philanthropy .” .Shes deceived .No private wealth, no real rights to elections, nothing really Theory and reality never match .Shes so wrong. Marxism has always been a tool to serve the ruling class in robbing and murdering their rivals and giving the suckers who fall for it some little crumbs of cake and a whole load of rhetorical craps about ” brotherhood ” and ” fraternity “

  4. If the stupid whore and convicted criminal Angela Davis is considered to be a diversity supremacist intellectual, then my dog should also be equally considered a diversity supremacist intellectual too.

    If you want to act like a dog, you’ll be treated like a dog, you dumb whores of diversity supremacy.

    Diversity supremacist trash like Angela Davis like to dress up their base and hateful criminal behaviors of killing, theft, robbery, assault, and rape as something grandiose and honest, when the exact opposite is true.

    Diversity supremacist retards are the losers who can’t produce anything of worth in the world, so they turn to spewing hateful BS and rabble rousing as their next line of self enrichment.

    Diversity supremacist also like to blame their personal failings on other people, usually invoking race or class as a wedge issue.

  5. This mindset has impoverished and destroyed numerous countries, We wont let it happen here. Guess who ultimately controls the food. For you liberals, it doesn’t grow in the back room of stores.

  6. I wonder if she lives in a mansion and is not affected in any way shape or form by these BLM/ANTIFA government created traitors.

  7. Ah yes the special peoples protege she and the back panthers came to my high school to talk about over throwing the us government and the alike.
    There was a question and answer period when I asked what do they have to replace it with they replied when we get that bridge we’ll cross it. I said you can’t cross it if it not there. Then to much of my surprise two GOONS came off the stage and pointed a 45.caliber to the back of my head and proceeded to escort me out the door and was told NEVER ever to comeback I had just started school there. It was my first equal rights experience.

    • Ah yes, the equal rights pipe dream. How can people be SO gullible? There’s ALWAYS someone who perceives themselves to be in charge and better than ALL the others. They then need an entourage to protect and attend to their needs. So now they have to provide niceties to this entourage so they remain loyal. Direction has to be given, projects undertaken, services provided. Before you know it, you’re pretty much right back where you started, with a government. ONLY it’s a government for you people, by their people and of their people. Which is what ‘they’ envisioned all along. You just DIDN’T see the big picture. Angela Davis is just another empty con job.

  8. Davis and other Leftist radicals are the real racists in this argument. They are openly admitting that they do not think that blacks and other racial groups other, than the white race, can compete and be successful in a free market capitalistic economic system. When she has done quite well as have 10’s of millions of others that are not white. She is and her commie comrades are the poster faces for the bigotry of low expectations.

  9. Just curious….when we whites win the upcoming race war, can we send all these revoltionaries,their Antifa and the rest of the modern liberal supporters back into slavery?

  10. If these looters, rioters, gang bangers and criminals want to take on America and transform it into some sort of Mad Max type of society then I guess I’d better order my AR and some ammo. It ain’t gonna happen…
