The Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement and related causes received an astonishing $82.9 billion from corporations, a new funding database from the Claremont Institute has found.
The Claremont Institute’s Center for the American Way of Life explained the necessity of their report in an article published in Newsweek, where the Center asserted that the 2020 BLM movement was about more than just “rioting and destruction.” More
Oh, about those reparations?
SHUT THE FSCK UP AND SIT THE FSCK DOWN!
Extorted $83 billion? No, stupid liberals thought they could buy absolution from their self inflicted white guilt. The stupid liberals took profits from their stockholders.
I don’t think “extort” is the right word. These corporations jumped at the chance to renew their “woke” credentials and replenish their social capital.
You can only give so much money to trans causes, pie-in-the-sky renewables, and refugee empowerment, this is as good a rat-hole as any to get a tax right off.
I received several emails from the ‘extorted’ corporations in May 2020 proudly stating they were 100% with BLM and were going to donate and encouraged their customers to donate. I unsubscribed from every one. ETSY, EBAY, Bloomingdales, Saks, etc.
Put the massive stupidity on display and publish the complete list of corporations and contributors so that the public may see for themselves these repulsive stooges in the new electronic public square of embarrassment!
Alternative title: $82 Billion laundered through Black Lives Matters.
Congress and the IRS should demand an audit trail of these funds….Yeah, Sure.
At least there’s something to show for the $82 billion: that racist black bitch bought a few mansions in SoCal.
I used to think the people than run/ran corporations were intelligent.
That Other EXTORTIONIST BUBBA WALLACE Jr. just finished 27th in another Pathetic Nascar Nothing Burger.
I don’t watch, but I check online to see where the IDIOT finished.
He Averages Finishing 24th in 2022.
Danica Patrick at 23.5 when she was wrecking metal.
Your headline is WRONG! Leftist corporations have been willing supporters of leftist groups for 70 years.
Ford, Microsoft, GM + Disney are giant examples of leftist support the last 40 years.
The Claremount has “memory holed” American history.
did Claremont do it intentionally to protect leftist corps; or because they do not know American financial history.
As an x CFO I have some, limited, knowledge or what American companies did from 1970 to 2003. Ford was ALWAY A BIG supporter of the left groups! Disney started to finance them about 1990. MS helped the left from “day 1”!
THERE WAS NO EXToRTION -s WITH POSIBLE EXCEPTION OF WaLMART! The Boards of the named companies have been liberals since Ike was president So the folk they hired as executives tended to be liberal. Since 2001 the executives have NOT TENDED TO BE LIBERAL, they are liberal!
‘Extorted’ my ass – they were happy to give it, because it cost the virtue-seekers nothing. In other words: they were playing with shareholders’ money, giving it to these animals.
Jesse Jackass school of extortion.
a lot of things can happen to dogshit
