THIS IS FUNNY! BLM Founder Patrisse Cullors Blames Joe Biden and Democratic Leaders For Having ‘Deep Cowardice’
The founder of Black Lives Matter, Patrisse Cullors, blamed Democratic President Biden and several other elected officials while talking with the Guardian, and she claimed their “deep cowardice” is the reason for not canceling the police funding.
Cullors also claimed that the BLM supporters backed Biden in elections, still, the Biden administration opted to pay more funds to the law enforcement department.
A self-proclaimed Marxist, Cullors, with the collaboration of Alicia Gazara and Ayo Tometi, founded BLM in 2013.
Cullors got into controversies after she bought a few multi-million-dollar homes and resigned from her BLM executive post.
During the interview with the Guardian, Cullors blamed law enforcement officials for their “culture of violence” that could be controlled when “courageous elected officials make it stop.”
She mentioned her cousin, Keenan Anderson, and another individual, Tyre Nichols, who died recently.
“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. The burden is on the officials who create the budgets for the police and other resources, who turn away from the violence and continue it in their departments.”
The BLM supporters directly accused Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Biden.
“It’s truly a failure of leadership at the highest level, all the way up to our president. This movement was able to help get Joe Biden into office, and yet in his first State of the Union address, he yelled: ‘Fund the police.'”
She pointed to Biden’s measures as a “direct affront” to the BLM movement.
In August last year, Biden addressed the administration’s “Safer America” agenda, and stated “when it comes to public safety in this nation, the answer is not ‘defund the police,’ it’s ‘fund the police.'”
The “Safer America” agenda was an initiative to dispense $35 billion as funding to back crime prevention and law enforcement in the 2023 fiscal year.
Cullors demanded that the elected members should withdraw law enforcement officials from traffic stops. She claimed, it is a “very reasonable demand.”
She also mentioned that Seattle, Berkeley, and Philadelphia are currently working on the removal of cops from traffic stops.
She insisted that Buttigieg should “lead a conversation about what federal dollars could fund programs to remove law enforcement from traffic stops.”
“The people who hold the power have chosen not to wield it on behalf of Black life. They’ve chosen to side with violent police forces.”
