Black Lives Matter Co-Founder Patrisse Cullors Resigns -- Blaming "Right-Wing Attacks"

She also might have blamed the Right Wing for forcing her to take money from BLM to buy $3 million in property, or the Right Wing for forcing her to pay BLM money to her baby-daddy.

The Right-Wing! Always up to somethin'! Those White Straight Men and their mesmeric Hypno-Eyes!

BREAKING NEWS: BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors RESIGNS as executive director over 'right wing attacks' - after her $3 million housing portfolio was revealed

* Cullors co-founded Black Lives Matter back in 2013

* The organization has experienced a surge in donations in the past year following the death of George Floyd

* Cullors came under fire last month after it was revealed she had amassed a $3 million property portfolio in recent years

She called criticism of her personal spending a 'racist and sexist' attack by 'right wing media'

Yes, any time a woman or a minority gets criticized -- or goes to prison -- it's "racist and sexist."

The laws don't apply to them. They are special creatures.

* However, BLM members have also called for a probe into the organization's spending and finances

...

I've created the infrastructure and the support, and the necessary bones and foundation, so that I can leave,' Cullors stated. 'It feels like the time is right.'

However, her departure comes after it was revealed last month that she has amassed a $3 million property portfolio, despite describing herself as a trained Marxist''.

Cullors faced fierce backlash over revelations about her personal spending - including the recent purchase of a $1.4 million home in a ritzy L.A. neighborhood.

It caused many to question what percentage of BLM donations were actually going towards social justice programs.

...

However, she insists her resignation has been in the works for more than a year and has nothing to do with the personal attacks she has faced.

'Those were right-wing attacks that tried to discredit my character, and I don't operate off of what the right thinks about me,' Cullors told the Associated Press.

...

The head of New York City's BLM chapter called for an independent investigation into the organization's finances after revelations about the property portfolio surfaced.

'If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,' BLM organizer Hawk Newsome told The New York Post.


The Daily Mail repeats Cullors claim that she was "only" paid $120,000 by BLM.

But you don't pull money out of a "charity" through salary, as The Lincoln Project can tell you.

That's too obvious.

You pull money out of a "charity" by setting up "vendor companies" that sell "services" to the charity.

Vendor companies that you own.

That's how you extract money from a "charity" and put it in your own bank account.

And that's what Cullors did.
