Isabel Vincent has this today in the New York Post:

Big Tech has showered Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors’ PAC and charities with millions in donations — and censors her online critics — as she backs their battle to control the internet.

Philanthropists linked to Facebook, Twitter and Netflix have donated more than $7.5 million to a host of non-profits controlled by Khan-Cullors, who has helped them lobby for “net neutrality.”

From the article:

“Is Black Lives Matter for rent?” said Peter Flaherty, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center. “Charities are not supposed to be vehicles for corporate lobbying, particularly on matters outside the charity’s mission.”

Patrisse Cullors

A social justice nonprofit chaired by Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors is moving to operate in other states as it avoids filing required financial documents in California, filings show.

Cullors’ nonprofit, Dignity and Power Now, was warned by California’s attorney general’s office in March over its failure to file all the required financial documents for 2019. According to state records, Dignity and Power Now is currently delinquent in California, where it is incorporated.

From the same article:

“As a condition of their tax-exempt status, nonprofit groups are required by the IRS and state regulators to disclose significant information about their finances,” said Peter Flaherty, chairman of the National Legal and Policy Center. “It is important for groups soliciting donations to file accurately and on time.”

This from Alana Goodman in the Washington Free Beacon today:

Dustin Moskovitz

Facebook cofounder Dustin Moskovitz has poured over $5 million into a network of nonprofits run by Black Lives Matter leader Patrisse Cullors, according to financial disclosure records, raising questions about whether this relationship played a role in the company’s decision to censor unflattering news articles about the activist last week.

The social media giant blocked its users from posting links to a New York Post story that revealed Cullors, a self-described Marxist, spent $3.2 million on high-end real estate as her Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation raked in millions in donations.

Also from the article:

The National Legal and Policy Center, a watchdog group that has been monitoring Facebook’s financial activities and Moskovitz’s charitable records, criticized the company’s decision to block reporting on Cullors.

“We think this, once again, proves freedom of speech is an option not a … Read More ➡
