CAN THIS POSSIBLY BE TRUE?
Can this even be remotely true?
BLACK LIVES MATTER MOVEMENT RECEIVED NEARLY $83 BILLION FROM CORPORATIONS
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.”
The Center explained that “The BLM pressure campaigns, harassment, and moral blackmail also amounted to possibly the most lucrative shakedown of corporate America in its history.”
“As a point of reference, $82.9 billion is more than the GDP of 46 African countries. In 2022, the Ford Motor Company’s profits were $23 billion,” they also noted. The sum of $82.9 million includes “more than $123 million to the BLM parent organizations directly,” as well as much more to other organizations supporting BLM’s agenda.
The list reveals that several popular corporations from a wide range of different industries supplied the movement with large sums of cash. Walmart, for example, which is based in Arkansas, gave a whopping $100 million in support of BLM and related causes focusing on “racial equity.” Amazon gave even more, supplying the movement with an astonishing $169.5 million. Silicon Valley Bank gave the movement $73.45 million.
Meanwhile, the pharmaceutical company Abbvie gave the movement over $62 million in funding. Allstate gave $7.7 million to the cause and American Express gave $50 million. Apple gave $100 million while AT&T gave $21.5 million. The movement and its causes received another $90 million from Nike.
United Airlines, JetBlue, Southwest Airlines, and Delta Airlines all gave money to BLM and related causes as well.
Bank of America, meanwhile, provided $18.25 million to BLM and related causes while Wells Fargo diverted $210 million towards BLM and related causes. Deloitte gave $85 million to BLM and related causes.
Asset management giant BlackRock put a shocking $810 million towards BLM and related causes, while other powerful financial institutions also bankrolled the movement, with Capital One Financial giving $10 million, Morgan Stanley giving $30 million, US Bank giving $160 million, and Goldman Sachs giving $10.1 million.
Meanwhile, Prudential Financial supplied the movement and its related causes with a sum of $450 million but was outdone by Mastercard, which gave $500 million.
The database found that Boeing gave $15.6 million, while Northrop Grumman gave $2 million and Raytheon gave $25 million.
The Walt Disney Company gave $8.8 million to BLM and related causes while the Pokémon Company gave $200,000. <Source>
If this is true, and most of the money remains unaccounted for…
Where is the Department of Justice investigation on what looks like an unprecedented grift and possibly a funding vehicle for communist fifth-column activities in the United States?
Should shareholders bring a class action lawsuit against the corporate officers and Directors who allowed this flagrant misuse of corporate funds while pocketing tens of millions in salaries, perks, bonuses, and options?
It is increasingly obvious that corporate offices and board members have lost their minds, are afraid to lose their jobs, willfully ignorant, a party to the grift, or simply don’t care because it is not their money. All violations of their fiduciary duties to the shareholders. No wonder many of these same individuals are opting for stakeholder capitalism to dilute their fiduciary duties.
We are so screwed if this story is accurate and without a mitigating explanation for the large sums given to an organization headed by communist queers and featuring sketchy governance.
