*Black Lives Matter “will be proven to be a terrorist organization,” said former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.
The remark came during Giuliani’s appearance on Hannity on Friday, during which he slammed New York Mayor Bill De Blasio’s commission of a BLM Mural outside Trump Tower
“Black Lives Matter is an organization run by three Marxists and financed by a convicted terrorist – who I happened to have convicted, who got 58 years in jail and got a corrupt pardon from Bill Clinton,” he said.
The three founders of the movement are activists Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors and Opal Tometi. The organization has 30 local chapters across the nation.
A Daily Mail article noted, “BLM is a network run by umbrella organization Thousand Currents, which radical activist Susan Rosenberg serves as Vice Chair of the Board of Directors.”

Here’s more from the article:
Rosenberg was an active part of far-left revolutionary terror organization May 19th Communist Organization (M19CO), which sought to overthrow the US government through armed action and a people’s militia. The group was a part of the Black Power Movement and the New Communist Movement.
She was arrested in 1984 in possession of weapons and explosives and sentenced to 58 years of imprisonment on the weapons and explosives charges. Giuliani was US Attorney of the Southern District of New York at the time.
She spent 16 years in jail, during which she emerged as an author and AIDS activists, and President Bill Clinton pardoned her on his final day in office on January 20, 2001.
“Susan Rosenberg, who handles their finances is a convicted terrorist who was involved with the Black Panthers who used to slaughter police officers,” Giuliani said on the Fox show.
“This convicted terrorist was sentenced to 58 years. Clinton’s corrupt last hour pardon set her free. Now we are paying the price,” Giuliani tweeted Friday.
“This is not a benign organization I can’t say yet that we can prove it’s a terrorist organization,” he told Hannity of the BLM movement.
“It’s certainly a violent organization, and I believe in the course of time it will be shown to be a terrorist organization.”

De Blasio and Rev. Al Sharpton joined activists in helping paint the mural on Fifth Avenue on July 9
“He’s putting “Black Lives Matter” in front of the president’s personal residence. The president he wants to …help bail out New York – [he] is only is a communist but is a stupid one,” Giuliani criticized.
“I thought he was the worst mayor in the history of the city, now he will have written that like a headline in history,” he added.
“Just think of the contradiction. I mean, everybody else can’t march. We have to wear masks. We have to separate ourselves. But if you are protesting, you can stand together, you can spit in each other’s face, you can hug and squeeze and you’re not going to get COVID-19.”
