Black Lives Matter, Plagued by Fraud Accusations, Scandals, and Lawsuits, Posts Support for Palestinians from LA and Chicago Branches


I think we’re just as happy that Black Lives Matter has posted support tonight for the Palestinians, and referred to Israel using the word ‘apartheid.’

BLM Chapters in Los Angeles and Chicago are satisfied to see beheadings, kidnappings, torture, and wholesale murder of Jews by the Palestinians.

But this is one time that might ok. Black Lives Matter is a fraud organization that has frittered away tens of millions of dollars on their own executives.

There are many lawsuits from outside and within the organization wondering where the $90 million donated to them in the last couple of years has gone.

On their recent Form 990 tax filing, BLM listed under Revenue Less Expenses MINUS $8.5 million. The previous year, they reported $76 million in donations. Another almost $10 million came in in 2022.

The LA Times reported on one of their gross inside jobs in 2022. Shalomyah Bowers was accused of stealing $10 million.

Here’s an Associated Press report on their internal lawsuits over fraud.

So Black Lives Matter has become totally irrelevant. If they knew the actual history, they’d know that Dr. Martin Luther King wrote in 1967:

“I would have made it crystal clear that I could not have supported any resolution calling for Black separatism or calling for a condemnation of Israel and an unqualified endorsement of the policy of the Arab powers.”

“Israel’s right to exist as a state is incontestable,” Dr. King wrote. He then added, almost prophetically, “At the same time the great powers have the obligation to recognize that the Arab world is in a state of imposed poverty and backwardness that must threaten peace and harmony.”

Dr. King would be ashamed of posts like these:
