BLM Hypocrisy, Totally Predictable By James Reed

I have often chuckled into my ale, when I read about the new class preaching social justice and the like, but rolling in loot and having posh homes. Hollywood is full of this, but lower down the scale are Left academics, who enjoy high salaries at the tax payers’ expense, while working tirelessly to bring down Western civilisation. Disgusting indeed.

“A Black Lives Matter co-founder and self-professed 'trained Marxist' has raised eyebrows by purchasing a $1.4 million Los Angeles home, in a largely white district.

Patrisse Cullors, a 37-year-old 'artist, organizer, and freedom fighter', has bought a three bedroom, three bathroom house in Topanga Canyon, complete with a separate guest house and expansive back yard, reports 

The home is described in the real estate listing as having 'a vast great room with vaulted and beamed ceilings'.

The realtors write that the large back yard is 'ideal for entertaining or quietly contemplating cross-canyon vistas framed by mature trees'.

The AP reported that Black Lives Matter took in $90 million in donations last year. It's not clear if or how Cullors is paid by the organization, as its finances are opaque.

In her new zip code, 88 per cent of residents are white and 1.8 per cent black, according to the census

The house is only 20 miles from her childhood home in Van Nuys, but is a world away.

In her 2018 memoir, she tells of being raised by a single mother with her three siblings in 'an impoverished neighborhood', where she lived 'in a two-story, tan-colored building where the paint was peeling and where there is a gate that does not close properly and an intercom system that never works.' 

Some critics argued that living in a million-dollar home was at odds with her social justice mission.

Vallejo for Social Justice, a movement that describes itself as 'Abolition + Socialist collective in the struggle for liberation, self-determination, & poor, working class solidarity,' said it was an ill-judged flaunting of wealth.

'We're talking generational wealth off of the deaths & struggle of Black folks here,' they tweeted. 

'Justice Teams Network & BLM founder paid $1.4 million dollars for a home. 

'This past week we bought a cot for our unhoused Black elder friend to keep him off the ground.'

One LGBTQ activist described BLM as 'a racket'. 

Jason Whitlock, a sports journalist, tweeted that: 'She had a lot of options on where to live. She chose one of the whitest places in California. She'll have her pick of white cops and white people to complain about. That's a choice, bro.' 

Author and activist Andy Ngo tweeted: 'Cullors identifies as a communist & advocates for the abolishment of capitalism.'  

Paul Joseph Watson, a British YouTube host, said she chose to live in 'one of the whitest areas of California'. 

Another Twitter user called Cullors a 'fraud' an said her brand of 'Marxism' apparently included buying a $1.4 million house. 

Tucker Carlson on Friday night told his Fox News viewers that Twitter had even begun taking down reference to the property.

Carlson noted that Whitlock posted on Twitter a link to the original story about the property, on the celebrity property blog The Dirt.

'He posted this on Twitter. Just made the obvious point. What? What happened? His account has been locked by Twitter,' said Carlson.

 

'This was a news story on real estate blog. He posted it. Lots of other people posted it. But when Jason Whitlock, who is an extremely effective voice for reason, who speaks clearly and honestly and is, therefore, a threat. They shut him down. Amazing, on many levels.' 

Cullors founded BLM with Alicia Garza and Opal Tometi in 2013, in response to the acquittal of George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin.

It is unclear if Cullors is paid by the group, which is currently cleft by deep divisions over leadership and funding.”
