Black Lives Matter Wastes No Time Trying to Exploit Charlottesville Violence for Fundraising

George Soros-funded Black Lives Matter is attempting today to try to exploit the tragic death of (white) Heather Heyer, during Antifa/white nationalist violence yesterday in Charlottesville, Virginia, to raise money for vague purposes.

Tossing aside any sense of propriety, Black Lives Matter continues to leave pinned, at the top of its national Twitter page, an urgent beseechment to donate “NOW” to an entity called “Charlottesville Solidarity Legal Fund” (alternatively, “Solidarity Cville Anti-Racist Legal Fund”/”#Defend CVille”) via Fundly. (It of course would have taken only a few seconds to unpin the tweet upon the news of Heyer’s passing.)

The link to the “legal fund” offers no 501(c)(3) information and does not mention the names of the individuals involved in the alleged charity. The “Paid for and authorized by” line is left blank. What the page does actually say includes the following:

“The Charlottesville Solidarity Legal Fund is an independent community resource that is available to all anti-racist activists in the ongoing struggle to confront and end white supremacy in Charlottesville. In order to ensure that funds are available equitably, participants agree to the following principles, which have been adapted from the vision and language of other movement work and community legal fund programs in Charlotte, Durham, Baton Rouge, Washington, D.C., Chicago, and elsewhere.

Tellingly, the “legal fund” also, in its very first bullet point under “Fund Principles,” quotes convicted murderer-of-a-police-officer Assata Shakur (““It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”).
