BLM Disgusts Us For Having Thanksgiving Dinner On Stolen Land, But See What Their Co-Founder Did

Happy Thanksgiving from Black Lives Matter: “You’re eating dry turkey and overcooked roast on stolen land.”

I admit, I got my card late. While it was tweeted out at 4:26 p.m. Eastern on Turkey Day, I was really busy doing anything but paying attention to the official Twitter account of the national BLM organization. I think I’ve done enough effective self-flagging for an edition of “Christmas,” as one MSNBC host called it last year.

And if I don’t appreciate myself, there are plenty of people willing to do the work for me. MSNBC raised their game this year, linking the holiday to “genocide” and “white supremacy.” Leader DC . Public Schools also gave me loads of tips for “decolonizing” my Thanksgiving. What more do I need to skip dinner and instead spend Thursday wresting privileges out of my hands like a waking Lady Macbeth?

This, obviously:

“You are on stolen land,” Black Lives Matter’s Twitter post. “The process of colonization never ends, it just becomes normalization.”

You can also find out “the ancestral homeland you currently live in” by visiting website. I seem to have commanded land from Munsee Lenape, Piscataway and Nacotchtank at different points in my life. My apologies.

However, just mentioning Black Lives Matter and the mainland reminds me of a a little hypocritical I am grateful this year, if only for entertainment value. If you need a bit of a running memory, check out the organization’s Twitter bio:

I’m not sure if the co-founder of Black Lives Matter is Patrisse Cullors — who once described herself and other BLM co-founders as “trained Marxists” — is eating dry turkey this year, but she’s definitely had a few hitches steal (especially expensive) to call her this Thanksgiving.

You might recall Cullors, earlier this year when it emerged that she had amassed numerous properties, including a $1.4 million mansion in California.

By the time news of her $3.2 million property portfolio broke in April, she was the leader of the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, the organization she’s dedicated to almost six years to run. She will left the organization in May, though she insists it’s not due to controversy.

I am all for capitalism, as are my fellow writers here at The Western Journal. The problems with Cullors’ real estate purchase are that a) she’s not a huge fan of capitalism and b) it sees the whole world as if she’s cashed in on the BLM brand, this isn’t great PR for movement.

On the first point, consider Cullors’ infamous remark that the founders of the Black Life Matters movement, including her, were “trained Marxists:”

“We really have an ideological framework,” Cullors said in an exchange a few years ago. “Myself and Alicia [Garza] As specially trained organizers we are trained Marxists. We are well versed in ideological theories. “

I’m not sure what it means to be “a trained Marxist,” but she seems to have learned the lessons of communism: As long as you’re the vanguard of the movement, war is on. profits will be good.

After buying a home in Topanga Canyon, California – a sparkling white estate in the Santa Monica Mountains – her portfolio becomes a problem and Cullors feels the need to hit back at the haters and loser.

“I think that’s a much-desired criticism, and I say that because the way I live my life is to directly support black people, including my black family members, first of all,” Cullors told the former CNN contributor Marc Lamont Hill in an interview.

“For so many black people who have the ability to invest in themselves and their communities, they choose to invest in their families, and that’s what I chose to do.”

The conservative media has a habit of clapping in the interview, too.

“Organizers should be paid for the work they do,” she told Hill. “The fact that the right-wing media are trying to create a buzz around my spending is racist and sexist.”

By the way, Topanga Canyon? It was “stolen” from the indigenous tribes of Chumash, Fernandeño Tataviam, Kizh and Tongva, the website Black Lives Matter mentioned in their tweet. There has been plenty of public criticism of this – or, for that matter, any criticism – from the central BLM organization when the Cullors were buying the property, however.

Oh, and as a hilarious coda to the property gate, it was reported in July that the Cullors were install $35,000 in walls and fences around her California home. It may have been stolen from the Native Americans, but she will certainly protect it as her own.

It’s not Black Lives Matter that is responsible for Cullors – at least not anymore, since she removed herself from the movement. However, by combining their tweet and her situation, one can begin to appreciate the validity of this argument: Almost every individual or organization has a large enough background to curse. Talk to us about living on “stolen land” owning or renting a piece of it better than you do and have no intention of giving it up.
