Black Lives Matter: Where Is It? Where Did the Money Go?

As it looted stores, burned neighborhoods, and destroyed statues of our national heroes, Black Lives Matter soaked up tens of $millions from woke corporations and liberal dupes. The fools who flung cash at self-described Marxists like highliving Patrisse Cullors never asked where the money was going, despite BLM being a shadowy organization that does not even have a known central location:

The nonprofit organization listed a nonexistent address on its 2019 IRS 990 form, and a visit to the similarly named address listed on a credit monitoring report (which has the same street number but a different spelling for the street and the wrong ZIP code) came up empty.

BLM’s lack of address came to light while the Washington Examiner was trying to obtain the organization’s tax returns for 2020. It was eventually told that Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation does “not maintain a permanent office.”

At least some of the money has been tracked down. Maybe BLM will open a main office in Toronto:

Canadian Black Lives Matter activists are furious over the group’s recent $8.1 million cash purchase of a mansion in downtown Toronto that once served as the headquarters of the Communist Party of Canada.

The U.S. charity that serves as the face of the BLM movement provided the bulk of the funding for the purchase of the 10,000-square-foot property in July.

Instead of answering the questions of volunteer activists, BLM Canada tried to get them to sign a nondisclosure agreement.

Meanwhile, board members decline to say who controls BLM’s $60 million bankroll:

BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors appointed two activists [Makani Themba and Monifa Bandele] to serve as the group’s senior directors following her resignation in May amid scrutiny over her personal finances. But both quietly announced in September that they never took the jobs due to disagreements with BLM. They told the Washington Examiner they don’t know who now leads the nation’s most influential social justice organization. …

And neither would say who served on the council. …

The two remaining BLM board members, Shalomyah Bowers and Raymond Howard, did not return numerous requests for comment asking who has been in charge of BLM and its money since Cullors left the charity in May.

Bowers appears to be an experienced social justice grifter:

Bowers served as the treasurer for multiple activist organizations run by Cullors, including BLM PAC and a Los Angeles-based jail reform group that paid Cullors $20,000 a month and dropped nearly $26,000 for “meetings” at a luxury Malibu beach resort in 2019.

CharityWatch Executive Director Laurie Styron describes Black Lives Matter:

“Like a giant ghost ship full of treasure drifting in the night with no captain, no discernible crew, and no clear direction.”

Good thing BLM isn’t a Tea Party organization. The IRS would be up their colon with klieg lights. But investigating black supremacists would be racist. Besides, BLM and the Democratic Party are on the same side.

As for the many $millions in donations that have gone up in smoke, the donors got what they paid for: the smug sensation of self-righteousness that lifts liberals into a state of euphoria whenever they help to destroy their own country.

Let’s hope the money all goes to mansions and does not actively promote BLM’s agenda, the way George Soros’s money does when he buys district attorney positions for leftist maniacs who side with criminals against their victims (e.g., Alvin Bragg [Manhattan], George Gascon [Los Angeles], Kim Foxx [Chicago], Larry Krasner [Philadelphia], Chesa Boudin [San Francisco], Kim Gardner [St Louis], Marilyn Mosby [Baltimore]).
