Like a broken record, every time the Left gets caught in a scandal they blame ‘racism’.
Black Lives Matter issued a statement Tuesday asserting that any accusations of wrongdoing against co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors misusing funds are yet another example of white supremacy.
As details continue to emerge (and immediately get censored) of the property spending splurge that the self proclaimed Marxist activist has been on, as well as details of yet more grifting activities, and even as other leaders call for investigations, the organization claimed that the whole thing is a “false and dangerous story” being pushed by “right wing forces” and “white supremacists”.
In other words, they injected race into the issue… again.
“Patrisse’s work for Black people over the years has made her and others who align with the fight for Black liberation targets of racist violence,” the statement claims, adding “The narratives being spread about Patrisse have been generated by right-wing forces intent on reducing the support and influence of a movement that is larger than any one organization.”
“This right-wing offensive not only puts Patrisse, her child and her loved ones in harm’s way, it also continues a tradition of terror by white supremacists against Black activists,” it continues.
Conservative author and commentator Candace Owens reacted to the developments Tuesday, noting that Khan-Cullors’ activities are customary for Marxists, who throughout history have stolen from others to enrich themselves.
“She has my respect because she’s unapologetic in her approach,” Owens said, adding “You have to appreciate the honesty. She is not hiding by any means. She is a Communist through and through and she has been unbelievably unapologetic in her approach.”
“The corporations are standing behind her, which is incredibly interesting,” Owens continued, further noting “She is fearful of white people. Well, why doesn’t she want to live amongst Black people? Why is she choosing to move herself into an all-white neighborhood? Those are important questions.”
