Convicted terrorist linked to Black Lives Matter group





Susan Rosenberg had spent 16 years in prison for terrorizing the United States during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.

A convicted terrorist is on the board of the umbrella group that provides tax-exempt financial status to the Black Lives Matter organization, one of the group’s “projects.” Susan Rosenberg had spent 16 years in prison for terrorizing the United States during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.

According to an investigative report by the Capital Research Center, the Black Lives Matter organization, officially known as “BLM Global Network Foundation,” is a fiscally-sponsored project of left-wing organization Thousand Currents.

Calhoun,” he wrote.

“In fact, Rosenberg was a member of the May 19th Communist Organization (M19),” he continued. “It was, according to this NY Post article from January 2020, ‘the nation’s only woman-run terror group,’ as recounted by William Rosenau in his book Tonight We Bombed the U.S. Capitol.”

Among other incidents, M19 was responsible for “bombings in New York and Washington, D.C., that were meant ‘to cast a cloud over what President Ronald Reagan’s re-election campaign was promising: a sunny, prosperous ‘Morning in America.’ Reagan’s election in 1980 told the remnants of America’s radical left that the country had rejected their call to...
