Patrisse Cullors

Public tax filings for the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation further exposed the racist organization built explicitly on Marxist values as a multimillion-dollar enterprise to enrich its leadership while cloaked in the self-righteousness of social justice. According to the New York Post on Tuesday, disgraced co-founder Patrisse Cullors, who stepped down last year amid scrutiny of a series of financial scandals, funneled major six-figure sums to family members from the network’s donors. Paul Cullors, Patrisse’s brother, raked in $840,000 from the nonprofit’s charity funds. Damon Turner, who fathers a child with Patrisse, owns a company that was paid nearly $970,000 from the organization for “creative services” including “produc[ing] live events.”

“The 63-page Form 990 document, an annual filing required for nonprofit organizations to maintain their tax-exempt status, shows Cullors reimbursed the organization $73,523 for a charter flight,” the Post reported. “BLM insists she took the flight in 2021 out of concern for the COVID-19 pandemic and the health risks that come with it.”

Meanwhile, Cullors “already found herself in hot water after receiving a cool $120,000 payment for undisclosed ‘consulting fees’ by BLM.”

The document, published by the Associated Press on Tuesday, shows the organization that raised $90 million in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death ended its fiscal year on June 30, 2021 with nearly $42 million in assets. A board member said the BLM Global Network operates with a $4 million dollar budget with tax forms detailing $32 million invested in stocks that are expected to serve as a permanent endowment fund for the group’s work.

“More than $37 million was spent by the foundation on grants, real estate, and charter on private flights, according to the tax filings,” the Post wrote.

Major purchases with little oversight have raised eyebrows in recent months as the group’s leadership buys high-priced homes in Los Angeles and Toronto for questionable use.

Prior to her resignation last summer, Patrisse Cullors used the organization’s new $6 million dollar California mansion to throw her son a private birthday party despite claims she would never use the property for personal use.

“I look back at that and think, that probably wasn’t the best idea,” she told the Associated Press after she was caught.

In January, the organization under fire for an apparent absence of leadership overseeing its tens of millions in tax-exempt funds drew outrage after the purchase of a 10,000-square-foot Canadian mansion in Toronto for more than $8 million.

“For BLM Canada to take money from BLM Global Network [Foundation] for a building without consulting the community was unethical,” Canadian BLM activists Sarah Jama and Sahra Soudi said in a statement following the purchase. “For BLM Canada to refuse to answer questions from young Black organizers goes against the spirit of movement-building.”

The pair of Canadian activists left the Toronto chapter after. But according to Cullors, questions surrounding the organization’s financial ethics are racist and the 990 nonprofit “structure” is “deeply unsafe.”

Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Confirms That Violent Mob Movement is Run by ‘Trained Marxists’


Reported by    | June 22, 2020

Patrisse Cullors, a woman who is credited as the co-founder of Black Lives Matter (BLM), confirmed during a recent appearance with The Real News that the movement was conceived by “trained Marxists” pushing an agenda of communist revolution.

“We actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and [BLM co-founder Alicia Garza] in particular are trained organizers. We are trained Marxists,” Cullors said.

“We are super versed on all sorts of ideological theories, and I think that what we really try to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk,” she added.

The video of Cullors bragging about her Marxist roots can be seen here:

BLM’s own website contains a great deal of Marxist language and is littered with buzzwords commonly used by practitioners of the godless, anti-American ideology. They maintain that their movement is focused “on issues concerning racial injustice, police brutality, criminal justice reform, Black immigration, economic injustice, LGBTQIA+ and human rights, environmental injustice, access to healthcare, access to quality education, and voting rights and suppression.”

The terror group has even received pointers from the Nelson Mandela Foundation, named after the terrorist and communist pawn who seized control over South Africa, on how to commit violence to achieve their revolutionary ends:

The Nelson Mandela Foundation issued an urgent bulletin to Black Lives Matter (BLM) activists, giving the anti-American terror group some pointers on how to achieve their racial supremacist goals through violence.

“Protests in response to the deaths of Black people at the hands of police or military – George Floyd in the United States, Collins Khosa in South Africa, Adama Traore in France – speak to a growing rage across the globe at continued white supremacy and the use of state violence to support it. As the case of South Africa demonstrates, such violence is to be found even in countries where Black people hold the levers of government and of the state more broadly,” the NMF wrote in their plea to BLM.

Of course, in actuality, it is the black majority that is inflicting genocidal levels of violence against the white minority in South Africa. Ever since Mandela “liberated” South Africa, the country has become the rape and murder capital of the world, and is set to become as much of a disaster as Zimbabwe in the years to come.

The NMF did not let reality get in the way of their racial victimhood narrative, and they readily make excuses for the violent nature of the BLM riots.

“As we have seen in South Africa during the democratic era, violent protest is often the result of a careful calculation by communities who have come to see that only such action elicits the desired response from the state,” the NMF wrote.

“The use of violence can be rational and carefully targeted as part of a strategy to counter structural and other forms of violence against Black lives. And, of course, it ought always to be so,” they added.

The NMF is blaming whites for the terror that they are receiving at the hands of black thugs and looters, using the Marxist trope of “structural racism” and the COVID-19 pandemic to justify the racial supremacist violence that they advocate.

“Now is the time for sober assessment of a resilient White supremacy in our country, in the US and globally. We need to reckon with the fact that structural and other forms of violence will provoke violence. And we must face the reality that the ravages of COVID-19 will further entrench structural violence unless we fundamentally restructure our societies. It is time to apply our minds to this challenge. Black lives do matter,” they concluded.

Cullors and other BLM co-founders need to be jailed and charged with treason for their criminal conspiracy to overthrow the Bill of Rights and Constitution.

‘Black Lives Matter’: We Will ‘Shut Down’ GOP Convention If We Can


waving flagBy Mark Finkelstein | July 25, 2015

Shades of 1968 and the Days of Rage? Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors has announced that “any opportunity we have to shut down a Republican convention, we will.”

Appearing on today’s Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC, Cullors also blithely spoke of “the murder of Mike Brown” in Ferguson, MO. Neither of the co-guest hosts sitting in for Harris-Perry, Richard Liu and Janet Mock, challenged Cullors’ characterization.  This despite the fact that even Eric Holder’s Justice Department found no wrongdoing on the part of the police officer who shot Brown.

Question: what would be the effect on the election if Black Lives Matter seriously disrupted the Republican convention?

JANET MOCK: What action do you want to see the candidates take for what the movement is calling for?

PATRISSE CULLORS: I think first off we want candidates to actually call movement leaders sit and have meetings with us, have a conversation with us about what’s happened this last year since the murder of Mike Brown.

. . .

MOCK: What is your plan for the Republican candidates specifically after Jeb Bush and his idea of saying that #black lives matter is just a slogan?

CULLORS: Yes. And we — many folks have asked why would you go after the Democratic party? They’re on our side. What about the Republican party? And trust and believe that any opportunity we have to shut down a Republican convention, we will. We will make sure that our voices are made loud and clear. And we also want to be clear that the Democratic party isn’t off the hook.
