UPDATE: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hit back at claims she lied about her experience during the pro-Trump Capitol riots.
“This is the latest manipulative take on the right. They are manipulating the fact that most people don’t know the layout the Capitol complex. We were all on the Capitol complex – the attack wasn’t just on the dome. The bombs Trump supporters planted surrounded our offices too,” she wrote.

BLM Co-Founder Admits Group Funded with ‘White Guilt Money’
In an MSNBC podcast interview, Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors used the vile statement that her organization is financed with “White guilt money.” Cullors was answering host Trymaine Lee’s question about the “tsunami of flooding” of cash flow and if they had proper ways to ensure its cash was “being directed in proper ways.”
Speaking on the “Into America” podcast, she said of the money “yes, it was a major shock…it was also a lot of like, ‘oh, wait, I did not see that coming.’ You know, contrary to what, you know, has been reported, much of the funding that came in was from individual donors.”
She then elaborated that those individual donors were specifically, “a lot of White guilt money.” She did not, however, address whether or not “guardrails” were in place to spend the millions of dollars it has raised.
“Cullors stepped away from the BLM Global Network Foundation in May 2021 amid scrutiny over her $3.2 million real-estate buying binge, which included the BLM leader scooping up four homes. Cullors also allegedly eyed property in the Bahamas at a posh resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods own homes.”
Recently Cullors was exposed by New York Magazine which exposed that BLM Global Network Foundation purchased a $6 million Los Angeles mansion, at which Cullors held personal parties such as a birthday for her son and an election party after Biden’s win.
