(ConservativeSense.com) – The founder of the far-left group Black Lives Matter has turned against President Biden, saying he has abandoned their movement. Patrisse Cullors expressed disappointment that police had not yet been defunded and called for an end to police traffic stops. In a direct swipe at the President, she said, “This movement was able to help get Joe Biden into office, and yet in his first State of the Union address, he yelled to fund the police.”
In January 2022, President Biden addressed Congress with a State of the Union speech and said that law enforcement resources must be protected and police numbers boosted. It prompted a standing ovation from across the divide, including from Kevin McCarthy.
Taking funds from police, and dismantling law enforcement altogether, is a key demand of the Black Lives Matter movement and has become popular in a radical wing of the Democratic Party. Individuals like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn), and Rep. Cori Bush (D-Mo.) are all strong advocates for the racially charged campaign group. They all blame “racism” rather than criminal behavior for the imprisonment of black lawbreakers.
Cullors’s attack on President Biden comes despite his efforts to comply with their race-based demands. In 2021, following Black Lives Matter riots that left a trail of destruction across the United States, Biden promised an investment of $8.7 billion in black businesses.
Cullors was initially the welcome face of the Black Lives Matter movement but became embroiled in controversy in 2022 when the group’s finances were scrutinized. Despite advocating socialist and radical left-wing policies, BLM founders, including Cullors, have done very well financially. Cullors refers to donations as “white guilty money” and has amassed a property portfolio worth millions of dollars.
She insists she has not profited from but has had the use of a $6 million luxury property in Los Angeles paid for with “white guilt” donations. The house has 7 bedrooms, a pool, and a sound studio.
