In an interview with the Guardian on Sunday, Black Lives Matter (BLM) cofounder Patrisse Cullors blasted President Biden in an interview Sunday, suggesting that he is failing the domestic terror movement. She also pressured Secretary of Transportation diversity hire Pete Buttigieg to “fund programs to remove law enforcement from traffic stops.”
Referring to the death of Tyre Nichols following a police brutality incident with the Memphis Police, as well as her cousin Keenan Anderson’s death this month after he was tased in a confrontation with Los Angeles police, Cullors said, “Every year, families, community members, organizers have said this must stop and there’s a different way to do this. And yet there has been deep cowardice from officials”:
Cullors said in the interview that after Anderson’s death, Secretary Buttigieg reached out to offer his condolences and “asked if there’s anything he could do.” In the interview, she suggested that he could “lead a conversation” about using “federal dollars” to “fund programs to remove law enforcement from traffic stops.”
Cullors wants to abandon inner-city blacks, who need and want more police presence, to the gangs and thugs like the ones in the movement she represents.
