NOTE: At some point, before bed, I read through 50+ news sources and share my findings here. If you like it, share it. If you don’t, share it. Follow my blog now to support my work or to find new reasons to complain about it. My opinions are my own. All tips are welcome.
Wow. Just… wow. Check out this quote from the NY Post.
As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.
Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.
The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report. The 2,370-square-foot property features “soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows” with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter-acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show.
To be honest, I’ve seen the photos and what can I say? Don’t hate the player, hate the game. And BLM is playing the game of grievance – well. And to add a bit more irony to the story, the demographics of where she lives is also raising eyebrows. According to to official data, non-hispanic white people make up 82.3% of the population in Topanga Canyon while African-Americans comprise a mere 1.64% of the population.
Although black lives may matter to Khan-Cullors, it appears as though she doesn’t want to live next door to them. #Irony Look at these headlines.
Do you know what these 3 headlines have in common, besides the story itself? They are all from news organizations OUTSIDE of the USA. So, while this is a noteable story here in America, it is nowhere NEAR as big as it should be for a couple of reasons. The first reason is censorship. Here is a quote from The Federalist.
Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors purchased a $1.4 million home last month in Topanga Canyon, a secluded area of Los Angeles whose population is reportedly less than 2 percent black. The self-described Marxist is now facing criticism for the extravagant purchase, including from Jason Whitlock, an African-American sports journalist.
Whitlock tweeted about the controversy last week, writing, “Black Lives Matter Founder buys $1.4 million home in Topanga, which has a black population of 1.4%. She’s with her people!” He added a link to the story on the celebrity property blog The Dirt. Twitter quickly deleted his post and locked his account for “violating our rules against posting private information.”
Something else being censored online (or suppressed, shall we say), is this story from The Grio (a popular website with African Americans). Out of the hundreds of millions of people on Twitter (to include BLM friends and detractors), its only been shared 12 times at this writing. Here is a quote from the article.
BLM reportedly brought in $90 million in donations last year, and now inquiring minds want to know if or how Cullors is paid by the organization and how much she has contributed to charity, per Daily Mail. Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, is calling for a probe into Cullors’ finances.
The other reason why this sensational story has yet to reach the critical mass of.. say… (insert any keyword here, any keyword at all and add the the word Trump to a headline) is because of new BLM
violence protests. The protests are in response to a female officer who fatally shot a black man at a traffic stop. The action was accidental as the intent was to fire a taser instead. It was tragic and the police officer should be fired and punished for ineptitude. Like clockwork, the mainstream media did not hesitate to make a bad situation worse. For example, I’m sure The NY Times got a lot of clicks from this tweet.
Unfortunately, most people will see headlines like this and not learn the details of what actually happened. Daunte Wright was not killed over an air freshner in his car. There was a warrant for his arrest which is why he resisted arrest and tried to flee.
Nevertheless, the narrative will be that the police are hunting black men in the streets and the violence against them is unending; which is not true.
The truth of this incident will come out eventually but by then, the mainstream media will likely say very little (or nothing) about it when it does.
Protests will continue for awhile and some will be peaceful, likely throughout the day.
But at night, riots and looting will commence as the protesters “grieve” the loss of Duante Wright by getting Nike tennis shoes at 100% off.
And when the smoke clears, no one is going to remember anything about BLM’s founder buying a million dollar mansion. And if they do, the story will be censored by Big Tech (again), suppressed in the mainstream media (again), as the next tragedy is used to garner more outrage and the cycle continues.
