Jesse Watters: Black Lives Matter's 'Scam' Has Been Exposed
Fox News host responds after BLM's latest property purchase revealed
Fox News host Jesse Watters has declared that Black Lives Matter's "scam" has finally been exposed after the organization's latest property purchase emerged.
As Neon Nettle first reported over the weekend, further questions have been raised regarding BLM's finances after it emerged that the organization funneled millions of dollars to buy a mansion for the co-founder's wife.
The discovery triggered major red flags after it was revealed that the huge sums of cash were pumped into a foundation run by the wife of BLM's controversial co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors.
Serious questions are now surfacing about who controls the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation's $60 million war chest.
The organization earns money through donations from people who believe the money will be used to fight racism.
In 2020, during the height of the Black Lives Matter-led rioting, the organization received a staggering $90 million in donations.
The group has refused to detail how the money is being used, despite reports about their founders spending millions of dollars on personal property purchases.
M4BJ, which is a non-profit based in Toronto that was set up in part by Janaya Khan, bought the lavish mansion for $6.3 million in July 2021.
Khan is the wife of Khan-Cullors, a self-professed Marxist who helped found the Black Lives Matter Global Foundation Network.
Cullors stepped down from her role as executive director of the activist group’s central foundation last year amid questions about her finances.
Cullors was questioned intensely after splashing out millions of dollars on a series of real estate investments and property purchases, leading to criticism for her perceived opulence while claiming to be a Marxist.
Fox News host Jesse Watters said on his show Monday that the IRS declined to comment on whether the transaction was flagged by the agency at the time.
"Usually the IRS pays a lot more attention," Scott Walter, president of the charity watchdog group Capitol Research Center told Watters during an appearance on "Jesse Watters Primetime."
"They should have filed an IRS disclosure form before the end of last year, as far as anybody knows they haven’t done that nobody has been able to get it out of them," he said.
"[There's] No accountability.
"All these people doing these amazing things without accountability.
"I mean, presumably, eventually, it will catch up to them."
Watters said it appears the group is getting off scot-free despite running a "pure scam."
"I think they figured out how to make a quick buck, say ‘Black Lives Matter’ and then just buy a bunch of lavish properties," he said.
"It’s unbelievable they are getting away with it right in plain sight.
"We won’t let them."
