I um...what? Marxists revolution? Nuclear Family?! Tell me this is just a bunch of dudes trolling, no one seriously still believes in that 50s propaganda anymore. I mean the archive very clearly states what the mean in regards to the nuclear family - they want families to look out for one another, not you vs me. But I guess trolls gotta troll

I'd guess the nuclear family angle is that they want to reject what they see as a traditional European family model in favour of recreating an idealised African family or community structure. I doubt it means they literally want to break nuclear families up though.

Yeah I would never personally make that argument, but that does seem to be the prevailing criticism.
Personally, if they just removed that page entirely and never replaced it, I think their site would be fine. The "About us" page is sufficient.

But where's the Marxism coming from? I read through the About Us page and couldn't find any reference to Karl Marx, Marxism, or communism or anything.

How does anyone read

We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, especially our children, to the degree that mothers, parents, and children are comfortable.
and think it has anything to do with destroying the nuclear family?

I really don't see your point in highlighting spurious accusations made by people who can't read on twitter.

Probably because of this:

If there is one thing I know about Marxists is that they generally don't get on with Marsists. It's the problem with creating something new instead of relying on traditions - instead of rigid possibilities, it's a cornucopia of possibilities that can be mutually exclusive.

The only problem I see is that destroying the Western enforced structure isn't necessary. This could have been a extension, refinement or expansion while lessen the patriarchal stuff. It could have been an update, not a destruction.

But, as I've said before, leties are terrible at PR

Yeah but they didn't say they're destroying it even. They said disrupt the requirement. The message is literally just that they reject a requirement for themselves through other means, namely using extended family to provide support for each other

I'm not disagreeing with you. Use the word disrupt and some people will just read destroy. So it just comes down to how much you care about their misinterpretation.

Yeah, just I read it and I wonder how they really come to that conclusion. Guess it's not like shocking tho, but it's insane

Marx:

Abolition of the family! Even the most radical flare up at this infamous proposal of the Communists.

On what foundation is the present family, the bourgeois family, based? On capital, on private gain. In its completely developed form, this family exists only among the bourgeoisie. But this state of things finds its complement in the practical absence of the family among the proletarians, and in public prostitution.

The bourgeois family will vanish as a matter of course when its complement vanishes, and both will vanish with the vanishing of capital.

The idea that they want to "destroy the nuclear family" was always a load of rancid hogwash.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
Houseman makes thread about a broken link on the BLM web page. What does he mean by doing this? Is he trying to say something? Is he trying to hide his power level?

Fox news is getting in on it as well


BLM is still silent on the issue.
Its Fox News. That's not a point in anyone's favor. Its FOX NEWS. If they think there is a story here then its best to assume there isn't.
