The truth about Black Lives Matter is finally coming out.
The far-left group has done considerable damage to the country.
Now a BLM leader is in hot water after being accused of one shocking crime.
The founding members of Black Lives Matter have resigned from the organization amid accusations of financial malfeasance.
Now leaders of local BLM chapters are under the microscope.
Monica Cannon-Grant, a BLM activist in Boston, is under federal investigation for defrauding her multimillion-dollar charity.
The Washington Examiner reported that “Monica Cannon-Grant, the founder and CEO of the charity group Violence in Boston, rose to prominence in the Boston BLM community after George Floyd’s murder in May 2020. Something of a powerbroker in Boston Democratic politics, she reportedly established a close working relationship with Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu when the two served on the Boston City Council . . . Cannon-Grant acknowledged in a podcast filmed Thursday that she has been under federal investigation since October, when federal authorities arrested her husband and raided their home after he was charged with committing COVID-19 unemployment fraud and mortgage fraud.”
Cannon-Grant’s husband allegedly represented the Violence in Boston charity fund as his personal bank account in an attempt to secure a mortgage loan.
Cannon-Grant sloughed off the investigation as an attempt by jealous black people who “partnered with white supremacy” to take her down.
She said, “They ultimately used him in order to investigate me . . . In 2020, we went from a $40,000, $50,000 a year organization to a [multimillion-dollar] organization – more money, more problems . . . The moment funding started coming in and the world started seeing us doing the work, which prompted awards and accolades, it was, ‘I want what she got. She don’t deserve it’ . . . This is what happens when you’re successful . . . This is what happens when you don’t accept mediocrity. This is what happens when you’re successful and nobody can explain your success because it’s not theirs to explain.”
Cannon-Grant is shamelessly boasting about her supposed charity growing in prominence as a result of George Floyd’s death.
Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, one of the members of the far-left “Squad,” got in hot water because of her close affiliation with Cannon-Grant after the activist made racist statements toward Pressley’s black Republican challenger Rayla Campbell.
Cannon-Grant said, “This heifer running against Ayanna Pressley – this one here with the white husband. At some point, we going to have to have a conversation with black folks who get in a relationship with white folks and then forget that they black . . . If white vagina and white penises jeopardize your melanin, then we need you to sit in the back of the classroom . . . This ain’t your part of the show, and you don’t get to talk right now.”
The mask has slipped and the racist radicalism of BLM is showing.
That’s why support for the group has cratered since the sharp increase after the death of George Floyd.
Fringe radicals, charlatans, and opportunistic criminals are slowly being exposed.
