John Nolte at Breitbart News reports that Patrisse Cullors, co-founder of the Marxist revolutionary movement Black Lives Matter (BLM), complained that having to disclose the organization’s finances is “deeply unsafe” and “triggering.”
“It is such a trip now to hear the term ‘990,’” Cullors said, referring to the IRS form requiring charities to reveal their financial activities. “I’m, like, ugh. It’s, like, triggering… I actually did not know what 990s were before all of this happened.”
“This doesn’t seem safe for us, this 990 structure — this nonprofit system structure,” she continued. “This is, like, deeply unsafe. This is being literally weaponized against us, against the people we work with.”
Cullors claims she’s “been approached by countless activists who are worried that they too will soon field requests from reporters demanding copies of their 990 forms.”
“People’s morale in an organization is so important,” Cullors continued to whine. “But if their organization and the people in it are being attacked and scrutinized at everything they do, that leads to deep burnout. [T]hat leads to deep, like, resistance and trauma.”
“Well, when you create a charity designed to improve the lives of black people, collect $90 million, and then spend nearly $6 million on a mansion, I can see why accountability and disclosure would bring about a little trauma,” Breitbart’s Nolte concluded.
