Black Lives Matter as Progressive Scam

Not just a policy scam, or White guilt tripping, or the usual socialist pack of lies and deceit.

No… this time, just as a run-of-the-mill, obviously criminal scam, looking for marks and the naive to rip off. Regardless of race or beliefs or politics.

Traditionally, the progressives are smarter, more far-sighted, and make a better effort at cultural/legal camouflage than this.

Usually, they own the future, because they have a greater commitment, and make a more sustained effort at winning than their trusting and half-hearted opposition.

Not this time.

In the end, Marxists at the top of BLM decided to just steal a fast hundred million or so from their supporters, fellow-believers, and backers, instead of even attempting to secure an ever-flowing stream of government money, government privilege, and government set-asides, all paid for by their enemies.

Interesting.

The short-sightedness and childish “I WANT IT NOW” nature of BLM’s leadership doesn’t stop there. Note that it is the blue states that are leading the charge in prosecuting BLM, as it is some of the more wealthier White members of the Ruling Class that got scammed… and they don’t appreciate it.

The poor Blacks that backed BLM — and were ripped off for their troubles — are not given a second thought, by anyone. But Marxists always despised the poor, the weak, the compassionate, and the peasantry, and would fill the mass graves primarily with their corpses if given the chance.

(While loudly screaming the opposite, as usual:
and with those screams lovingly echoes and re-echoed by the mainstream press, as usual.)

Christians are commanded not to follow the example of BLM, or any of these oppressive Collectivists. They will do exactly as they please, for whatever justification they care to dream up: we may not.

From: Black Lives Matter shuts down fundraising days after liberal states threatened legal action by Andrew Kerr, Investigative Reporter

—<Quote begins>—

Black Lives Matter shut down all of its online fundraising streams late Wednesday afternoon, just days after California threatened to hold the charity’s leaders personally liable over its lack of financial transparency.

The move comes less than a week after a Washington Examiner investigation found that BLM has had no known leader in charge of its $60 million bankroll since its co-founder resigned in May. California and Washington recently ordered BLM to cease all fundraising activities in their blue states due to the failure of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the legal entity that represents the national BLM movement, to report information about its finances in 2020, the year it raised tens of millions amid the racial protests and riots that followed George Floyd’s killing.

“We take these matters seriously and have taken immediate action,” an unidentified spokesperson for the BLMGNF told the Washington Examiner. “We have immediately engaged compliance counsel to address any issues related to state fundraising compliance. In the interim, we have shut down online fundraising as we work quickly to ensure we are meeting all compliance requirements.”

CALIFORNIA THREATENS TO HOLD BLM’S LEADERS PERSONALLY LIABLE OVER MISSING FINANCIAL RECORDS

The donation button that used to be featured prominently on BLM’s website was nowhere to be found as of Wednesday evening.

The California Department of Justice told the Washington Examiner on Tuesday that “BLMGNF is prohibited from soliciting donations so long as its status is listed as delinquent.”

Despite the notice, BLM accepted a $1 donation from a Washington Examiner reporter based in California on Wednesday morning.

The California DOJ said Wednesday afternoon that it would not confirm or deny an investigation into BLM so as to “protect its integrity.”

BLM also received notice from the state of Washington on Jan. 5 to “immediately cease” all fundraising activities in the state. Washington warned the charity that it could face fines of $2,000 for each violation, but as recently as Monday, the charity accepted a $1 contribution from a Washington resident.

BLM’S MILLIONS UNACCOUNTED FOR AFTER LEADERS QUIETLY JUMPED SHIP

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita previously said BLM’s refusal to answer basic questions about its finances and operations fits a common and disturbing pattern.

“It appears that the house of cards may be falling, and this happens eventually with nearly every scam, scheme, or illegal enterprise,” Rokita, a Republican, said in an interview with the Washington Examiner. “I see patterns that scams kind of universally take: failure to provide board members, failure to provide even executive directors, failure to make your filings available. It all leads to suspicion.”

Rokita said he would not confirm or deny that his office is investigating BLM, but he said the Washington Examiner’s reporting on the group “certainly cause us to be concerned.”

BLM’s charity registration is also out of compliance in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, and Virginia.
