Idiocy of the Week: BLM Claims It Bought $6M Mansion to Promote ‘Joy and Creativity’

Black Lives Matter


Available: Español

El American’s Idiocy of the Week comes from Black Lives Matter. After getting caught buying a nearly $6 million mansion in California (allegedly with money from donations), the BLM Global Network has said the luxury house will be a “communal space for collaboration” for black artists in search of “joy and creativity.”

Nice try, BLM! but that excuse doesn’t work. It’s bad luck that with such a cheerful, ample, and very expensive space, they can only come up with such cheap excuses. We are afraid that they will have to get more out of this property by practicing their creativity, because we have already seen the idiocy they have come up with in George Orwell‘s Animal Farm.

At the risk of being accused of racism—as they do with everyone who criticizes BLM’s maneuvers in the dark—it is impossible not to compare the scene of the pigs’ dinner at Mr. Smith’s expropriated farm with the stamp of the three founders of Black Lives Matter (Patrisse Cullors, Melina Abdullah and Alicia Garza) toasting with champagne on the anniversary of George Floyd’s death, precisely in the recently purchased Californian mansion.

Although the video was posted openly on Patrisse Cullors’ YouTube channel, it is now listed as private. We suppose that the reason why they are hiding this video is the same reason why they have blocked the replies to the tweet in which they give their absurd explanations about the purchase of the mansion.

BLM: Fighting white supremacy at $868 per sq. ft.

While they may lack creativity, they have plenty of chutzpah. According to BLM Global Network, they recognize “the power of arts and culture to dismantle white supremacy and bring us closer to achieving full liberation not just here in America, but across the globe also.”

What better way to dismantle white supremacy than by acquiring a property situated on a three-quarter-acre lot, a pool, tree-lined yard, outdoor fireplace, ‘butler’s pantry’, miniature filming studio, 24 parking spaces, and two separate guest houses along with the main house, custom wrought iron staircase, where figures such as Humphrey Bogart and Marilyn Monroe have stayed. You can see some photos of this humble home purchased for $5,888,800 on the real estate portal Redfin.

They do plan to work “with both young emerging artists and established world-renowned cultural workers to imagine a liberated future for our people,” with the intention of disrupting “current practices around artist exploitation.”

This string of leftist fetish words seems self-generated by a bot of excuses whose artificial intelligence is still not very well polished or waxed. Surely when some emerging artist wants to make use of the mansion to develop his creativity and share his joy with the world, he will be told that right now he can’t come in because the floor is freshly mopped, polished and waxed, that he’d better come back later.
