Would you like to see Black Lives Matter dry up and disappear overnight? Would you like to see their “defund the police” scheme relegated to the trash heap of history’s worst ideas? Would you like to stop hearing them lie about police brutality and killings? Well, for that to happen, corporate America has top stop putting hundreds of thousands of dollars towards the cause. And for THAT to happen, we the people need to show these companies that we won’t stand for them funding the worst organization in the country.
The Daily Caller did an important review of BLM’s funding this week, including their affiliate groups. They found that companies like Microsoft, Intel, and Airbnb have all contributed enormous sums of money to fund these groups and their anti-police agenda.
From the Daily Caller:
Companies including Microsoft, Intel and Airbnb have donated to Black Lives Matter Global Network and Color of Change, both of which want to defund police departments across the country.
Color of Change is leading a national petition campaign demanding elected officials “defund the police, and invest in communities now!”
Both Black Lives Matter and Color of Change have seen a flood of corporate donations since George Floyd, a black man, died after a Minneapolis police officer knelt on his neck for more than eight minutes, according to video.
Clothing company H&M donated $500,000 across three social justice organizations including Color of Change, H&M announced in a June 1 Instagram post.
Clif Bar announced a $100,000 donation split between two groups, including Color of Change, in a June 1 Facebook post.
Cisco announced on June 1 that it was splitting a $5 million donation across four social justice groups, including both Color of Change and Black Lives Matter.
If that’s not enough, the site’s investigators revealed that RITZ crackers, OREOs, and Chips Ahoy have all donated money to the BLM movement. Other offenders include Degree, DoorDash, Slack, Vans, The Wing, Spanx, Dropbox, and even Pokémon!
Look, we know that a lot of these companies – if not all of them – just donated because they thought it would give them some street cred at a time when Black Lives Matter is the new hotness. They didn’t think about the implications, and they certainly wouldn’t be able to explain their positions on defunding the police.
But that’s precisely the problem. How many Americans, much less corporations, have any idea about what they’re really supporting when they donate their time and money to this socialist movement? Maybe if more people understand the true nature of Black Lives Matter and its sister organizations, they’ll stop supporting them.
