WASHINGTON, D.C. – If you go to the official website of Black Lives Matter and donate to the organization, you might realize that your donation is being facilitated by Act Blue, a Democrat campaign fundraising platform that boasts over 10,000,000 active contributing members to the Democrat Party. According to ActBlue, the corporation has raised over $5.5 billion for leftwing candidates and movements since 2004.
“10,946,322 Democratic donors have saved their payment information with us via an ActBlue Express account,” the company said. “Powering Democratic candidates, committees, parties, organizations, and c4s around the country.”
Act Blue does not hide their affiliation with Black Lives Matter either. Founder Benjamin Rahn is completely open about his membership and affiliation with Black Lives Matter. In fact his twitter handle is “Black Lives Matter – Benjamim Rahn.
“Folks have used our platform to donate over $3.8 billion, with an average contribution size of $35,” said ActBlue CEO Erin Hill. Hill boasted that every Democratic candidate running for President in this year’s primary was a client of her company. Now, her company has switched to the business of Black Lives Matter.
Black Lives Matter is also funded and supported by the Action Network, another left-leaning campaign funding platform.
“Since launching in 2012, the Action Network toolset has powered many of the largest mobilizations of the last decade, including the Black Friday Walmart Strikes, the Women’s March, and the Climate Strike. The Action Builder toolset, launched in 2019, is helping dozens of unions and progressive organizations develop and empower leaders and build strong, deep organizing campaigns,” the network boasts on its website.
Candace Owens, a black conservative voice who opposes Black Lives Matter said the group is not a charity as it claims, but a political movement and claimed that because of its ties to act blue, Black Lives Matter is indeed a political corporation.
“According to its website Black Lives Matter, Inc is NOT a charity. It is a full-fledged corporation that does NOT have any locations,” said Candace Owens. “Can anyone tell me then where the hundreds of millions BLM has raised goes?”
Black Lives Matter’s founder also does not hide her extreme left-leaning political affiliation, according to the New York Post.
“The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said, referring to BLM co-founder Alicia Garza. “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories. And I think that what we really tried to do is build a movement that could be utilized by many, many black folk.”
