What really is Black Lives Matter? Black Lives Matter, a movement supposedly rooted “in response to the acquittal of Trayvon Martin’s murderer,” in 2013 claims to win immediate improvements for blacks “by combating and countering acts of violence,” according to the foundation’s website.

Really? This is hard to believe when Black Lives Matter protests continue to turn violent day after day and major cities across the U.S. attempt to recover the devastations of looting and arson.

The truth slipped out when a co-founder of the Black Lives Matter Global Network weighed in on the 2020 election…a violation of IRS laws prohibiting 501(c)(3) organizations from engaging in campaign activity. The Federalist reports – Patrisse Cullors, in her official capacity as a co-founder of the BLM Global Network, told CNN that “our goal is to get Trump out.”

“Trump not only needs to not be in office in November, but he should resign now,” she insisted.

According to the IRS, a 501(c)(3) organization “may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates.” The prohibition includes “public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office.” Organizations that violate this policy may lose their tax-exempt status.

Will BLM soon have to pay taxes?

The donation page for BLM is connected to ActBlue Charities, the 501(c)(3) division of the Democratic PAC ActBlue. BLM is not individually registered as a 501(c)(3), but instead operates through a fiscal sponsorship agreement with the nonprofit organization Thousand Currents.

“Fiscal sponsorships allow the sponsoring organization to accept and direct donations on behalf of the sponsored group. But an organization sponsored by a 501(c)(3) is still required to comply with the regulations governing nonprofits, and is still prohibited from making partisan political statements,” according to The Federalist.

Thousand Currents, the nonprofit that fiscally sponsors Black Lives Matter, was also recently exposed for having a convicted terrorist on its board of directors.
