BLM: It Was Always a Scam

Posted on | April 15, 2022 | Comments Off on BLM: It Was Always a Scam

There is a certain type of affluent white liberal who will pay anything to absolve themselves of their sense of racial guilt, and never has there been a more perfect scheme to separate such fools from their money than the Black Lives Matter movement. It’s very hard for me to begrudge Patrisse Cullors and her BLM co-conspirators their ill-gotten gains, because is it really wrong to rip off rich white liberals? If ever anyone deserved to be swindled, it’s them — the Barbra Streisand/Jane Fonda types, the Hollywood/Manhattan nexus of wealth and cultural influence.

Even while I wholeheartedly endorse this swindle, however, it would be a nice bonus if the BLM swindlers also ended up in federal prison:

Patrisse Cullors, a co-founder of the domestic terrorist group Black Lives Matter, said disclosing finances is “deeply unsafe” and “triggering.”
Yeah, well, if I started a so-called charity and used the millions and millions of dollars that poured in from left-wing suckers to purchase a $5.8 million Los Angeles mansion, I might also be grasping at those same desperate straws.
What triggers this shameless grifter is the words “form 1990,” which is the form used by the IRS that requires charities to reveal their financial activities.
“It is such a trip now to hear the term ‘990,’” Cullors said.”I’m, like, ugh. It’s, like, triggering.” “I actually did not know what 990s were before all of this happened,” she continued.
“This doesn’t seem safe for us, this 990 structure — this nonprofit system structure,” Cullors said. “This is, like, deeply unsafe. This is being literally weaponized against us, against the people we work with.”
According to the Washington Examiner, Cullors says she’s “been approached by countless activists who are worried that they too will soon field requests from reporters demanding copies of their 990 forms[.]”
These idiots thought they could raise million in charity and do whatever they wanted with the money? That’s hilarious.
Here’s my favorite Cullors quote:

People’s morale in an organization is so important. But if their organization and the people in it are being attacked and scrutinized at everything they do, that leads to deep burnout. [T]hat leads to deep, like, resistance and trauma. . . .

I’m sure Al Capone felt traumatized when the IRS started looking through his taxes.
I’m sure Bernie Madoff felt traumatized when the SEC arrived with a warrant.
I’m sure John Wayne Gacy felt traumatized when the police started digging up his crawlspace.

In short, Black Lives Matter was a criminal enterprise from the start. As William Jacobson has repeatedly pointed out, the entire movement originated in a lie, i.e., the false “hands up, don’t shoot” narrative surrounding the 2014 police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown had committed a robbery — caught on video — and when Officer Darren Wilson tried to arrest him, Brown violently resisted arrest, trying to grab the policeman’s gun. A grand jury cleared Wilson of wrongdoing and even the Obama Justice Department was forced to admit the shooting was justified. The facts made no difference, however, to the BLM activists who incited a riot that caused $4.6 million in damages.

What was the “social justice” benefit of burning down O’Reilly Auto Parts or Hunan Chop Suey? How were the dozens of small businesses (many of them minority owned) burned by the mob complicit in whatever grievance motivated this senseless destruction? What logic was there to any of the criminal acts incited by BLM’s hateful rhetoric?

That such a destructive “movement” should be granted 501(c) status as a tax-exempt charity is an insult to taxpayers, and was anyone really surprised that BLM turned out to be a gigantic swindle?

We all remember how Lois Lerner’s IRS persecuted Tea Party activists. Can we expect the feds to do anything to punish the BLM scammers?
