Where did BLM’s money go?

Black Lives Matter (BLM) has become a national force in American politics since its start in 2012 after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin by a Neighborhood Watch volunteer, George Zimmerman. BLM also receives millions of dollars in donations annually. But now some are questioning where the money is going.

BLM co-founder called for ‘end of Israel’

Patrisse Cullors, the self-proclaimed trained Marxist, co-founder of Black Lives Matter and multi-million dollar home-owner, can now add another to her list of left wing accomplishments. According to the Daily Mail, while speaking on a panel sponsored by Harvard University’s Human Rights Program in 2015, Cullors called for an end to Israel’s existence as a nation.

BLM’s ‘trained Marxist’ in more trouble?

There appears to be more to this story about Black Lives Matter (BLM) cofounder, Patrisse Khan-Cullors who recently purchased a $1.4 million home near Malibu beach in California. Apparently, this isn’t the only home she purchased in the last four years and people in the BLM movement are now calling for an official investigation of Khan-Cullors, the self-proclaimed “trained Marxist.”

BLM protestors disrupt Christmas cancer fundraiser

According to reports, members of Black Lives Matter in Milwaukee, Wisconsin decided to protest a Christmas fundraising event that raises money for a local cancer center. It is uncertain why the group known as The People’s Revolution (TPR) chose to demonstrate at an event largely attended by families with children. Even people who typically support BLM are calling it a “trash move.”

BLM ‘defund police’ hypocrisy

Perhaps, hypocrisy, should be nominated as the word of the year for 2020. Not only do we have Democrat elitists wilfully violating their own lockdown rules, but after repeatedly calling for police defunding, we now have Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists in Washington, DC complaining that the police didn’t do enough to protect them during recent protests.

Canada: BLM ‘demands’ funding cuts to police

The Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization has been demanding cuts to police funding throughout the US with some success. Now it appears that BLM has brought the defund police movement to Canada. First thing you should notice is that these weren’t requests, they were demands. In a recent presentation to the Greater Sudbury city council in Ontario, BLM made three demands. The first focussed on more spending and the second on more inclusion. But it is the third ‘demand’ that caught my attention: Demand Three: Black Lives Matter Sudbury demands that the City of Greater Sudbury and Council to immediately defund and redirect 10 per cent of the $62-million Sudbury taxpayer dollars utilized for the Greater Sudbury Police Service (GSPS) budget. READ: Black Lives Matter Sudbury unveils list of ‘demands’ for city council Now, it is important to realize that in the US, BLM does not even represent the majority of Blacks. It is not even close. The organization is completely out of touch with the people it claims to represent. The vast majority of …

BLM removes section about disrupting family unit

With many people, including Blacks, starting to turn against the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, it is now trying to scrub it original goals from the internet. One of those included its highly controversial plan to “disrupt” the family unit. The Blaze explains: The main Black Lives Matter website has apparently deleted its “What We Believe” manifesto, which included calls for the disruption of the nuclear family. When you try to find the original page that contained that statement, all you find is a blank/not found page. However, The Blaze also provides the original statement before it was deleted: We are self-reflexive and do the work required to dismantle cisgender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence. […] 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.

BLM founders: More ties to communism?

A video surfaced earlier this year of one of the founders of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization, Patrisse Cullors, claiming she was a Marxist. The Daily Caller explained what happened recently with Alicia Garza, another of BLM’s co-founders: Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza’s new organization, Black Futures Lab, is fiscally sponsored by the Chinese Progressive Association, which organized the raising of communist China’s flag over Boston City Hall last year. The “donate” button on Black Futures Lab’s website takes users to a donation page hosted by the CPA, which notes that “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association.” The partnership between the two groups was first reported by the Daily Signal on Tuesday. The CPA last year sponsored the raising of the Chinese flag over Boston City Hall to mark the 70th anniversary of the Chinese Communist Party creating the People’s Republic of China. The event sparked a protest from demonstrators opposed to the Chinese government’s actions in Hong Kong, 7News Boston reported at the time.

More Blacks protesting against BLM

We have seen Blacks in the past protesting against the Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization because they do not believe it represents them. READ: WATCH: Black Woman Pours Paint Over BLM Street Art: ‘All Lives Matter!’ ‘We’re Taking Our Country Back!’ ‘Refund The Police!’ The Blaze pointed to another example on Facebook of several black people explaining why they are opposed to Black Lives Matter. The video posted on the Daily Wire‘s Facebook page has been shared 5,900 times. The Blaze provides a few of their quotes: “They’re full of hate. Nobody listen to them. Don’t listen to them. Don’t try to understand them. Why? They are full of hate. You don’t need it. America don’t need it.” “In a black neighborhood, black-on-black crime is real. … White people aren’t doing anything to them.”  “I’m black, 52, I’m not oppressed. Ain’t nobody oppressing me. America’s more free than it’s ever been.”   “They don’t know who they’re mad at. Remember, this started with George Floyd. It went from George Floyd to now, it became the white people. Then …

Why do BLM protestors burn down black businesses?

This is not the first time it happened. But people are asking why are Black Lives Matter protestors burning down black-owned businesses? It happened again in Rochester, NY. The Blaze explains: Jesse Barksdale, the black owner of a Rochester, New York, multipurpose store that leases U-Haul vehicles, was reportedly “livid” after Black Lives Matter demonstrators reportedly set fire to at least three of his trucks in the early hours of Sunday morning. Poll: What is the most important issue for you in the 2020 election? A sign hangs outside of Barksdale’s business — “Proud to be Black Owned” — but that apparently didn’t stop who are believed to be Black Lives Matter demonstrators from burning down his business.

Chicago rioters attack Ronald McDonald House?

Ronald McDonald Houses have been set up around the world to serve as residents for parents and children being treated for chronic illnesses in nearby hospitals. There are 368 houses in 64 different countries/regions. Owen Buell, 2, and his family were staying a Ronald MacDonald House by Chicago’s Lurie Children’s hospital as Owen was treated for Stage 4 neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive cancer that attacks organs. The family was planning to return to the House to celebrate Owen’s second birthday: “We were going to have cake and ice cream and do some presents at home with his siblings and his grandma,” said Owen’s mother, Valerie Mitchell. But looting throughout downtown Chicago made it impossible. “We got a phone call from the nurse saying that none of the nurses could make it in for safety concerns and they didn’t want any families in the middle of that trying to walk into Lurie’s,” Mitchell said. The Ronald McDonald House was one of several locations hit early Monday morning. “The whole door was shattered and it looked …

Oh, the BLM irony

When Black Lives Matter (BLM) protestors show up in Springfield, Oregon, city residents realizing their elected officials were useless decided to tell these people to leave. You will notice in the video below that most of the BLM protestors are white left-wing Millennials. And some protesters were even wondering why this protest wasn’t going as well as they did in Portland. Are we too presume that many of the protesters were not from Springfield? And one tweet asked the obvious question: And now the irony. Remember that these BLM protestors are demanding that the police be defunded. So why did they call the police for help? Language warning in video. And even Blacks are starting to notice that BLM protests have been hijacked by left wing “white” extremists. Language warning in the video below: And on a related note, one writer addressed the rioting that has taken place in the smaller communities around the US, which has basically been ignored by the main stream media. Michael Tracey decided to visit some of these smaller communities …

A black man tells of his encounter with Antifa

Many allege that Antifa is a Marxist extremist group that is simply using the current racial unrest to instigate violence and push its political agenda. And Fox News tells what happened to Gabriel Johnson, a Black man, who showed up at a recent Antifa protest in Portland: Gabriel Johnson, a 48-year-old Black man and retired Marine, said that after he went to protest outside the courthouse with his American flag in hand on July 19, he was called racial slurs and members of Antifa followed him home. “These people have nothing to do with Black lives. Our Black community leaders need to stand up and lead because what’s happening is they’re letting a group of terrorists that don’t represent me use me, and that’s not right,” said Johnson.

Black woman paints over BLM words in New York

In early July, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio authorized the painting of the words Black Lives Matter (BLM), in huge block letters, on the street in front of Trump Towers on Fifth Avenue. In fact, Mayor de Blasio helped paint one of the letters. Most believe de Blasio authorized the painting to antagonize the country’s president, Donald Trump, who owns the tower. But not all blacks are in agreement with the messaging of the BLM, that seems to have taken a turn to the extreme political left. In a video, one of the founders of BLM claims to be a trained Marxist. Recently, a black woman, Bevelyn Beatty, decided to paint over the words on the street with black paint. A Christian, Beatty believes all lives matter, and she also does not want police funding cut, a reference to Mayor de Blasio’s push to have $1 billion cut from the city’s police budget. Beatty, who leads a ministry called The Well Ministries, was arrested by police. The Daily Wire writes: On Saturday, activist and At …

Marxist BLM activists shout ‘abolish capitalism now’?

More evidence is surfacing that some Black Lives Matter (BLM) protests are more about politics than black lives. At a protest in Beverly Hills, California, BLM activists were not shouting Black Lives Matter, they were shouting “Abolish Capitalism Now”. Andy Ngo has the video: Black Lives Matter protesters in Beverley Hills, Cal. chant: “Abolish capitalism, now!” — Andy Ngô (@MrAndyNgo) June 27, 2020 READ: Black Lives Matter Activists Want To ‘Abolish Capitalism.’ Vendors Selling BLM Merch Just Got Shut Down In Black Lives Matter Plaza. And of course, there is a video that surfaced earlier of one of BLM’s founders claiming to be a trained Marxist: BLM founder Patrisse Cullors, reassuring an old communist that she understands that the goal is to destroy freedom: “we’re trained Marxists.” — David Reaboi (@davereaboi) June 20, 2020 Of course, the unanswered question is trained by whom?

Black conservatives crash white BLM protest

Two Black conservatives, Benji Irby and Shemeka Michell, were visiting North Carolina’s state capitol in Raleigh, when they noticed a Black Lives Matter protest in the park that only had white people. In an interview on KTTH-AM, Benji Irby explains: “As we were walking down a little path, Shemeka was like, ‘Is that a Black Lives Matter sign?’” he said. “And I’m like, ‘What? Is this a Black Lives Matter protest?’ And I’m like, ‘But there are no black people.’ And I’m like, I don’t even do live videos, but I have to share this video, this is absolutely crazy. And there was a whole Black Lives Matter protest there — not a single black person at all. The Western Journal writes: And then there’s the beautiful contrast here. Oh, look, a bunch of white people who are Very Angry at what’s happening to black people — and black people who are utterly perplexed at their attitude. In fact, they’re openly derisive of the protesters, laughing at the preposterousness of the situation. My guess is …

BLM activist warns Target to not call police or else

Breitbart recently reported on disturbing situation that took place at a Target store in Washington, DC. A group of Black Lives Matter (BLM) protestors showed up at the store and one of BLM’s leaders used a foghorn to tell Target if they did not quit calling the police, then BLM would shut down the store. A reporter recorded the incident: BLM to @Target “we will shut your buisness down” — Drew Hernandez (@livesmattershow) June 28, 2020 A bit more of a description: Black Lives Matter literally threatened @Target today in DC Apparently if that @Target in DC ever calls the cops on a black person ever again BLM will shut them down Sounds a lot like what Hawk Newsome said on Fox the other night about “burning down the system” Radicals — Drew Hernandez (@livesmattershow) June 28, 2020 There is more to the story, including a bit on the reporter who recorded the incident.

Video: Then he asked if unborn black babies matter?

A man approached medical staff at an unnamed hospital holding a Black Lives Matter protest. First he asked, “Do all black lives matter, or just some black lives?” They responded, “All black lives.” Then he asked, “Black lives killed by black men matter.” They replied with a bit of encouragement, “Yes.” Then he asked “The black lives killed in the abortion clinics matter, right?” No response.

Is Black Lives Matter a Marxist organization?

According to reports, Black Lives Matter (BLM) was founded in 2013 by Alicia Garza, Opal Tometi, and Patrisse Cullors after the death of Trayvon Martin and acquittal of the man who shot him, George Zimmerman. A recent video has surfaced from 2015 suggesting that the organization, with 40 offices around the world, may have deeper political motivations than just a concern for Black people. The Blaze explains: Black Lives Matter doesn’t specifically note that they are Marxists on its website, but one of the organization’s creators admitted that they subscribe to Karl Marx’s ideology. In a newly resurfaced video from 2015, Black Lives Matter Global Network co-founder Patrisse Cullors reveals that she and her fellow BLM creators are “trained Marxists.” “Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” Cullors said in the 2015 interview. “We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.” Of course, the bigger question is who trained them: BLM founder Patrisse Cullors, reassuring an old communist that she understands that the goal is to destroy freedom: “we’re trained …
