BLM Threatens Legal Action Against One Of Their Own Activists After Call For Finances Investigation

“So the issue has become my affiliation and not the use of funds. Interesting.”

The National Black Lives Matter organisation is threatening legal action against one of its own activists after he called for an independent investigation into how finances are being spent, following revelations concerning co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ property spending binge, and further money raking activities.

As we highlighted yesterday, Hawk Newsome, who heads up a Black Lives Matter group in Greater New York City, made the call for an investigation, telling the New York Post “If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes.”

Newsome said “black firms and black accountants” should conduct an audit on BLM Global Network Foundation to “find out where the money is going.”

“It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement,” Newsome added.

After labelling the developments a “false and dangerous story” being pushed by “right wing forces” and “white supremacists”, it has now emerged that BLM is attempting to silence other black activists who are speaking out.

The Daily Caller sought comments from BLM, and the group claimed that Newsome “is not and has never been a part of the official Black Lives Matter organization, but continues to use BLM’s name even after sending him multiple cease and desist letters. Therefore, any mention of him as a leader is not factual.”

BLM’s communications arm further noted that “Only BLM chapters who adhere to BLM’s principles and code of ethics are permitted to use the BLM name.”

Responding to the comments, Newsome said “So the issue has become my affiliation and not the use of funds. Interesting.”

The Daily Caller report also notes that BLM does not own any rights to the name ‘Black Lives Matter’, that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office routinely rejects applications to trade mark the name, and that Newsome registered his own organization, Black Lives Matter Greater New York, as a business entity in December 2016.

“This movement belongs to the people,” Newsome commented, adding “It is for the people and by the people. It is the people that take to the streets and march in the name of BLM. No one has ownership of that. It is the equivalent of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. claiming ownership of the civil rights movement.”

When The Daily Caller presented these facts to the BLM spokesperson, the group began back peddling, noting “We are saying [Newsome] is not affiliated with BLM Global Network Foundation,”

“There may be individuals who include the words ‘Black Lives Matter’ in their organizational names, but they are not affiliated with BLMGNF. Does that make sense?” the spokesperson added.

The case continues to evolve, but it is clear that grassroots activists are now questioning the validity of those at the top of the BLM pyramid.

Statues of Historical Figures Who OPPOSED Slavery Now Face Removal

Because they “might now be called racist.”

Statues and busts of historical figures who OPPOSED slavery now face being removed in England and Scotland because such men “might now be called racist” anyway.

Yes, really.

A statue of William Pitt, an abolitionist who once branded slavery a “curse of mankind,” could be removed by Edinburgh council.

Britain’s youngest Prime Minister and a close friend of iconic abolitionist William Wilberforce is accused of having been “involved in sustaining the slavery-based economy and preventing the abolition of the slave trade.”

Why? Because Pitt didn’t manage to completely eliminate slavery during his premiership and favored a gradual approach to abolition.

“This is what happens when Edinburgh Council hands editorial control of the city’s history to a secretive cabal of activists operating beyond public scrutiny,” said Robert Poll, founder of campaign group Save Our Statues.

“They feed mollifying words to the press, while secretly plotting to remove the city’s heritage.”

“We’re no longer talking about slave traders. We’re talking about Pitt, one of our greatest Prime Ministers and national hero who led us against Napoleon.”

“This shows the reach – and the folly – of this monomaniacal brand of revisionism, where we’re only permitted to view history filtered through the single lens of slavery.”

Meanwhile, a revisionist history group of academics is lobbying Imperial College London to remove a bust of slavery abolitionist Thomas Henry Huxley because he “might now be called racist.”

Huxley, a biologist who contributed to forming Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, is deemed to have “links to the British Empire,” which is seen as outrageously offensive to Black Lives Matter activists.

One of Huxley’s papers also “espouses a racial hierarchy of intelligence,” which the group claims “might now be called ‘racist’ in as much as he used racial divisions and hierarchical categorisation in his attempt to understand their origins in his studies of human evolution.”

It doesn’t matter that Huxley was a vocal proponent for the abolition of slavery, the fact that some words he wrote nearly 200 years ago would be considered offensive in 2021 is enough to obliterate him from history, according to these extremists.

“Thrilled to see that Thomas Henry Huxley has been cancelled,” joked parody account Titiana McGrath.

“As a white man, his campaign to abolish slavery was clearly a cynical ploy to disguise his inherent racism.”

Former MSNBC Host Labels Condoleezza Rice A “Soldier For White Supremacy” After She Denounced Critical Race Theory

Claims “Condoleezza Rice’s recent appearance on The View was offensive and disgusting”

A former MSNBC host has branded Condoleezza Rice a “disgusting soldier for white supremacy,” after the former Secretary of State spoke out against the teaching of Critical Race Theory in American schools.

In an op-ed Toure Neblett declared that Rice’s “thoughts on critical race theory are completely white-centric, as in, they revolve around the thoughts and needs of white people.”

He added that “Condoleezza Rice’s recent appearance on The View was offensive and disgusting for many reasons, but she was who we thought she was: a soldier for white supremacy.”

Rice said on The View that in her opinion CRT “is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction,” further explaining that “I would like black kids to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their blackness, but in order to do that, I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white.”

“One of the worries that I have about the way that we’re talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past,” Rice, now the Director of the Hoover Institution, further emphasised.

She added, “We teach the good and we teach the bad of history, but what we don’t do is make 7 and 10 year-olds feel that they are somehow bad people because of the color of their skin. We’ve been through that and we don’t want to do that again.”

In his response, Neblett countered that “White children and adults should absolutely feel bad about the past atrocities committed by white Americans.”

“They should feel guilty. They should cringe at what their ancestors did. They should also understand that modern white power is directly related to those atrocities,” he further declared.

Neblett’s accusations against Rice prompted some to return to past accusations made against him:

So far, 21 states in the U.S. have moved to enact legislation restricting the teaching of CRT in schools.

The Biden administration has expressed a desire to punish parents who stand up against the divisive theory being taught to their children.

The developments come in the wake of video emerging of a teacher at a high school in Ohio talking about books and themes closely associated with CRT, despite previous promises to parents from officials that it wasn’t happening in the district’s schools.

    Video: Condoleezza Rice Blasts Critical Race Theory: “I Don’t Have To Make White Kids Feel Bad For Being White”

    Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice criticised proponents of Critical Race Theory Wednesday, declaring that “this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

    Appearing on The View, Rice, now the Director of the Hoover Institution, addressed CRT following the Biden administration’s apparent desire to punish parents who stand up against it being taught to their children in schools.

    “If I could take a moment to talk about the whole issue of Critical Race Theory and what is, and is not being taught, I come out of an academic institution, and this is something that academics debate. What is the role of race and so forth?” Rice said.

    She continued, “let me be very clear; I grew up in segregated, Birmingham, Alabama. I couldn’t go to a movie theater, or to a restaurant with my parents. I went to segregated schools till we moved to Denver. My parents never thought I was going to grow up in a world without prejudice, but they also told me, ‘That’s somebody else’s problem, not yours. You’re going to overcome it, and you are going to be anything you want to be.’ And that’s the message that I think we ought to be sending to kids.”

    “One of the worries that I have about the way that we’re talking about race is that it either seems so big that somehow white people now have to feel guilty for everything that happened in the past,” Rice further emphasised.

    “I don’t think that’s very productive,” she then declared, adding “Or black people have to feel disempowered by race. I would like black kids to be completely empowered, to know that they are beautiful in their blackness, but in order to do that, I don’t have to make white kids feel bad for being white. So somehow, this is a conversation that has gone in the wrong direction.”

    Watch:

    It seems Rice is now pro-slavery… and racist… and not a real person of colour… or something:

    Rice’s comments come in the wake of video emerging of a teacher at a high school in Ohio talking about books and themes closely associated with CRT, despite previous promises to parents from officials that it wasn’t happening in the district’s schools.
