Rep. Jordan slams Dems saying, no one is safe from ‘cancel culture’

Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Jim Jordan laid out the indisputable argument that the media and Hollywood are ardent supporters of the Democratic Party during Thursdays hearing, titled Diversity in America: The Representation of People of Color in the Media.

The House Judiciary Committee’s hearing included a number of witnesses, as well as Eric S. Dreiband, who is the assistant attorney general at the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice. He testified before the committee along with a number of representatives from civil rights organizations across the U.S. and some entertainers.

Jordan, however, pointed to the growing disparity in the media and Hollywood toward conservative viewpoints and growing biased against Republicans in general.

He called out the hypocrisy during his opening statement.

“Even the media is not woke enough for the Democrats,” said Jordan. “Hollywood is not woke enough for the Democrats. Ninety-six percent of media – their political contributions in 2016 went to Democrats, almost all of Hollywood supports the Democrats but that’s not good enough.”

Jordan added, “this hearing proves no one is safe from the cancel culture, no one is safe from the mob.”

Joy Villa, a Grammy award winning artist, testified at the hearing, noting that her diversity didn’t ever get her ostracized but her conservatism did.

“Until I came out as a Trump supporter by wearing a fabulous Make America Great Again dress to the Grammys 4 years ago, I had never been blacklisted—Yet as soon as I began sharing my conservative beliefs and my support for President Trump, I noticed a social chill,” Villa testified.

She recalled “back in 2015, talk show host Jimmy Kimmel talked favorably with Kelly Osbourne about one of my red-carpet gowns. This was before I was conservative.”

“Ava DuVernay, the celebrated black filmmaker who said she wants to use more black actresses in her films and have more diversity, blocked me on Twitter,” she added. “I was disinvited to casting round tables. I was blacklisted from industry events. I was not welcome on most talk shows. I was not included in pop-culture magazines or publications —unless as the butt of jokes. Rolling Stone Magazine told my publicist that they would not write about me because of my politics.”

BLM co-founder used funds to pay sister, mother, brother and child’s father

Released tax filings show just how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors spent the millions of dollars raised from “White guilt.” She paid roughly $970,000 to the company of her child’s father to help “produce live events” and other “creative services.”

Over $840,000 was paid to her brother, Paul Cullors, for security services. Daily Mail wrote that “leaders have attempted to justify” the expenses to her brother by saying the “foundation’s protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations.”

It was recently disclosed that she bought a $6 million mansion in L.A. for the organization, and denied she took money from BLM for personal matters, although shortly after it was unearthed that she had used the mansion for her own parties.

Cullors also reportedly “reimbursed BLM $73,523 for a charter flight for foundation-related travel, which the organization says she took in 2021 out of concern for COVID-19 and security threats.”

Cullors resigned last year from the organization due to criticism of her finances, such as purchasing multiple homes for herself that cost millions of dollars combined. She also admitted the charity was paying for “employment” of her sister, mother, and brother.

Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation Inc revealed from July 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, it ended the fiscal year with nearly $42 million in net assets. “The foundation invested $32 million in stocks from the $90 million it received as donations amid racial justice protests in 2020” adds Daily Mail.
