Dem State Rep Vernon Jones: Do black lives matter to Black Lives Matter?

Democrat State Representative Vernon Jones, GA, didn’t hold back in calling out his own party for not denouncing rioters and protestors “hiding behind Black Lives Matter,” during an interview with “The Sara Carter Show” podcast Monday.

Jones was asked to react to the growing civil unrest in the country since the tragic death of George Floyd. Since Floyd’s death, Black Lives Matter and other groups have sought to defund the police, tear down statues, and promote the idea that America is inherently racist.

“We give literally millions of dollars to universities and nonprofit groups to go out and, dig, dig and dig and pull up symbols and statues of the past so we can learn about it. But here we are in 2020 and we’re tearing them down. What are kids gonna know about come 2030 that those statues are gone,” Jones told Carter.

President Donald Trump has reacted to the riots by promoting a zero-tolerance policy for anyone violating the law as rioters take part in looting-sprees destroying property and livelihoods. The President’s push for law and order, Jones explained, is the right strategy and advised that he “continue to reach out with state and local governments and help with the resource is they needed.”

Jones added, “But at the same time, this President has tried to work across the aisle, and he has to continue to try to work across the aisle. But make it clear in his point. Clearly, Democrats have not come out and denounced a lot of these rioters and protesters who are hiding behind Black Lives Matter. I’m beginning to wonder. Do black lives matter to Black Lives Matter?”

Over the holiday weekend, 8-year-old Secoriea Turner was shot and killed in Atlanta. Turner was a passenger in her family’s vehicle and was shot near where a number of rioters and protestors gathered in recent weeks in the wake of the death of Rayshard Brooks, who was shot and killed by police in a nearby Wendy’s parking lot last month.

“And you know, Sarah, here’s what’s interesting,” Jones said. “And, I say that because there’s so many different groups from Antifa to others being funded by George Soros and these left-wing groups who really want to get rid of religion, too. But they have infiltrated Black Lives Matter, and then when you look at the originality or I should say the, the real purpose of Black Lives Matter is to push a transgender agenda now that’s where they want to do. Fine. I have no problem with that. But all lives should matter. Clearly, black lives should be valued just as much as any life.”

Jones concluded, “When I see a white police officer. If a white police officer kills a black person, then there’s massive demonstrations and rioting. But what about when blacks kill blacks like th little eight-year-old girl? That was not a police officer. What about him in St. Louis when that former police chief, who was doing his job of guarding a pawnshop of a friend or client and was gunned down on the streets of St. Louis, not by white officers?”

“Where was the outrage from Black Lives Matter? Chicago, last weekend, what, some 14 people killed, including a 3-year-old, and maybe a 13 year old. This past week in Philadelphia 87 shootings and I think about 14 deaths on a Saturday night. This is not President Trump’s fault. There’s an issue at the local level too where local leadership is not doing what they need to do, Sara.”

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.

Fox News reports “the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, its primary nonprofit, collected $90 million throughout 2020, a financial snapshot released by the group in early 2021 showed.”

“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.
