Public tax information confirms that the Marxist Black Lives Matter (BLM) organization spent $12 million on mansions in Los Angeles and Toronto.
The Canada arm of BLM bought a 10,000-square-foot mansion in downtown Toronto for $6.3 million. The site which the Canadian communist party formerly owned was rebranded as the Wildseed Centre for Art and Activism.
Officials with BLM Canada claim that the home was funded using an “out of country grant” for activities to educate and support black communities and to purchase and renovate property for charitable use.”
IRS documents also show that BLM bought a compound in Los Angeles for $6 million. The property has its own swimming pool, an events stage and other features.
BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors has since decided to play the victim card after her organization benefited from $90 million in donations, which she has branded as “white guilt money,” which is now being “weaponized” against her.
“I’m a human being that has made mistakes that want to change, want to challenge those mistakes and want to learn from those mistakes,” Cullors said on an MSNBC podcast.
“And I think what’s been hard is feeling like there isn’t room and space for that.
Cullors has said that her purchase of the $6 million LA property was an “investment” and not her “personal” home.
“This was an investment,” said Cullors. “It’s not my personal real estate. It’s not Patrisse Cullors’ real estate. It’s the organization’s real estate.”
She has since admitted that she threw two parties at the mansion. The first was a birthday party for her son and a celebration of President Joe Biden’s 2020 election. Tax records show she paid the organization $390 for the “use of real estate.”
“I look back at that and think, that probably wasn’t the best idea,” said Cullors about the parties.
