A jail reform organization led by Black Lives Matter co-founder and self-proclaimed “Marxist” Patrisse Cullors, reportedly spent $26,000 at a luxury Malibu beach resort for “meetings” in 2019, according to campaign finance records.
The Daily Caller reports:
Reform LA Jails dropped $10,179 for “meetings and appearances” at the Calamigos Guest Ranch and Beach Club in Malibu, California, and another $15,593 at the Malibu Conference Center, a corporate conference facility owned by the resort, according to the records, which covered the time period between July and September 2019. Guests at the 200-acre resort, where rooms start at $600 a night, have exclusive access to a private five-acre strip of the Malibu coast.
The records show that the payments were made on behalf of the jail reform group by a consulting firm owned by Asha Bandele, a longtime mentor of Cullors and co-author of her 2018 biography, “When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir.”
According to the Daily Caller, political groups such as Reform LA Jails are regulated by the California Fair Political Practices Commission which states that campaign funds “must be used for political, legislative, or governmental purposes.”
“A review of Reform LA Jails’ social media records shows that the group organized multiple events in the Los Angeles area in the second half of 2019, including a party at actress Jane Fonda’s house and a ‘day party + summit’ in Pasadena featuring live music and local artists,” writes DC reporter, Andrew Kerr.
Cullors has come under fire in recent weeks after it was revealed that the so-called Marxist ” has purchased a number of real estate properties, including two Los Angeles homes and a 3.2 acre property in Georgia.
Twitter Bans Black Journalist Who Criticized BLM Co-Founder’s Lavish Lifestyle
A black sports journalist was banned by Twitter after he criticized a Black Lives Matter co-founder’s recent purchase of a $1.4 million house.
The New York Post reports:
Jason Whitlock says Twitter blocked him over a tweet pointing out the demographics of Topanga Canyon, the Los Angeles enclave where Black Lives Matter leader Patrisse Cullors recently snapped up a $1.4 million home, according to reports.
Whitlock showed fellow journalist Ryan Glasspiegel the Friday email he received from Twitter about the offending post, which said Topanga Canyon “has a black population of 1.4%.”
“She’s with her people!” Whitlock wrote of Cullors, adding a link to a story about her real estate purchase on the celebrity blog Dirt.com.
Whitlock told the Daily Mail that Twitter went “too far” in blocking him and called BLM “one of Big Tech’s sacred cows.”
“’I’ve been harping on the fraudulence and the financial grift of BLM for years,” said Whitlock. “I think Twitter has been looking for an excuse to de-platform me,” he continued.
Twitter told Whitlock his account was locked because he revealed personal information about someone.
“They said I needed to remove the tweet that linked the dirt.com story about Cullors buying a house in Topanga,” he said.
Ironically, Cullors is a self-proclaimed “Marxist” and has purchased a number of real estate properties in recent years, including two Los Angeles homes and a 3.2 acre property in Georgia.
Affluent Chicagoans Fleeing Due to Leadership Inability to Calm BLM Violence
Many people, including President Trump himself, noted during their Republican National Convention speeches that Democratic-run cities are experiencing violence and looting, as the leaders whose policies are to blame are safely hidden in privileged areas. However, areas like Chicago have become so bad, affluent neighborhoods are no longer safe and citizens are getting out of dodge.
“Incidents of widespread looting and soaring homicide figures in Chicago have made national news during an already tumultuous year,” writes the Chicago Tribune. “As a result, some say residents in affluent neighborhoods downtown, and on the North Side, no longer feel safe in the city’s epicenter and are looking to move away.”
Liberal leadership has been unsuccessful at subduing violence from the Black Lives Matter’s highjacked movement. With no end of destruction in sight and spontaneous eruptions of violence, while residents say “they understand why protesters and rioters have poured onto the streets of downtown, and some acknowledge that crime is worse in other parts of Chicago” they still want out reports the Chicago Tribune.
Some people “agree with protesters that something systemic needs to be changed” but they “don’t want to wait it out here in the city, fearful of stepping outside at night and hoping for things to maybe get better.” A 30-year-old nurse who lives in the River North area said, “not to make it all about us; the whole world is suffering…but I do think that I’ve never had to think about my own safety in this way before.”
Hopefully, this will be a lesson to Chicagoans and similar cities, that they need to vote out their Democratic leadership who refuse to stand up to the violent protesters and also refuse to accept help and assistance offered directly from President Trump. 60-year-old Neil Spun has lived in Chicago for over half his life and is deeply conflicted about moving. A state worker, Spun said “there have been rights before, and looting. It just seems to me now that the city isn’t doing anything about it. I don’t see this getting any better, and so I’d like to leave.” Residents would be far better off voting in new leadership instead of succumbing to liberal policies that change their communities beyond recognition.
