Black Lives Matter has been exposed as a fraudulent organization.
The organization’s creators are all far-left activists who have come under scrutiny from the Left and the Right.
And BLM crooks did something that will make your blood boil.
It turns out that the leaders of the neo-Marxist front group Black Lives Matter are nothing more than shameless elites.
Every socialist country falls into the trap of opulence among the leadership class, and poverty for everyone else – call it trickle-down socialism.
Such was the case with BLM.
As chapters around the country were begging for funding from BLM, Inc., the people at the top were buying large mansions.
New York Magazine reported that the BLM co-founders bought a house that was “far from a box, with more than 6,500 square feet, more than half a dozen bedrooms and bathrooms, several fireplaces, a soundstage, a pool and bungalow, and parking for more than 20 cars, according to real-estate listings. The California property was purchased for nearly $6 million in cash in October 2020 with money that had been donated to BLMGNF.”
It turns out that smearing America as irredeemably racist pays incredibly well.
Ironically, the existence of the house was first discovered when the BLM bigwigs filmed a YouTube video on the patio of the residence, ranting about the dastardly “right-wing media.”
Patrisse Cullors said in the video, “For me, the hardest moments have been the right-wing-media machine just leveraging literally all its weight against me, against our movement, against BLM the organization.”
But it turned out the Left was getting exasperated with BLM as well.
New York Magazine added that the real estate purchase “has not been previously reported, and Black Lives Matter’s leadership had hoped to keep the house’s existence a secret. Documents, emails, and other communications I’ve seen about the luxury property’s purchase and day-to-day operation suggest that it has been handled in ways that blur, or cross, boundaries between the charity and private companies owned by some of its leaders. It creates the impression that money donated to the cause of racial justice has been spent in ways that benefit the leaders of Black Lives Matter personally.”
The BLM co-founders aren’t the first ones to get rich off of denouncing America, whipping up rancor among the poor, and profiting from guilt-ridden progressive liberals, but they got caught quicker than others.
They got too big too fast, and burned out.
Democratic super-lawyer and Hillary Clinton associate Marc Elias is attempting to reconcile the organization’s books.
The Democrats want to keep the grift going, so they have to clean up BLM’s image for upcoming political cycles.
