Black Lives Matter: 'Communities Terrorized at Greater Rate' Under Biden than Trump
BLM organization slams Joe Biden for 'sending more military equipment' to local police
Black Lives Matter's global organization has slammed Joe Biden, claiming he has "terrorized" more communities than President Donald Trump allegedly did.
On Tuesday, BLM expressed its disapproval of Biden for “sending more military equipment” to local police than the Trump administration.
“Our communities are being terrorized at a greater rate than they had been under Trump,” BLM tweeted.
"You read that right," the tweet added.
BLM also noted Biden’s first 100 days are quickly approaching a deadline the organization has set for ending “transfers” of military equipment to local communities.
“Biden’s first 100 days are up in 10 days. By then we need him to which transfers military equipment into the hands of police across the country– including school & campus police,” they tweeted.
Their website cites the 1033 Program, a Law Enforcement Support Office, which grants shifts of “surplus military-grade equipment to local law enforcement agencies across the country,” according to Breitbart.
They also contend, “over $7 billion has been given to law enforcement agencies” since the Clinton administration.
The organization points to the “military” apparently seen on the “streets ahead of the Chauvin verdict” as an example of “state-sanctioned violence against Black people,” their website reads.
BLM has not gone without criticisms, despite its charity tax status.
Indeed, the families of Breonna Taylor and Michael Brown, “two of the iconic victims in the Black Lives Matter movement,” are challenging where the organization’s funds are utilized.
Taylor’s family has called the Kentucky Black Lives Matter division a “fraud.”
Meanwhile, the leader of Black Lives Matter's New York City wing is demanding an investigation into the finances of BLM after co-founder Patrisse Cullors' multi-million dollar "real estate-buying binge" was recently exposed.
Hawk Newsome, leader of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, is calling for an investigation after a new report revealed that Cullors has purchased four expensive homes over the past several years.
"If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes," Newsome said.
