Stealing funds has become so common with the Black Lives Matter movement that BLM can easily mean Big Looters of Money. The latest in this series of endless stealing is the reported use of over $40 thousand by BLM activist Shaun King to buy a dog.
As reported in The Washington Examiner (August 02, 2022), King spent more than $40,000 of donor cash to buy a dog for his family. The dog, a Mastiff named Marz, was bought from a California breeder via King’s political action committee, Grassroots Law PAC, with a series of payments spanning December 2021 to February 2022.
But the money so generously spent on purchasing the show dog didn’t get the dog a family; Marz reportedly had “too much energy to be a family dog” so he was returned to the American Kennel Club competition.
The New York reported (August 02, 2022) that Shaun King tried to justify his purchase of Marz as a guard dog, saying that he needed the dog to protect his family against “white supremacists.” Interestingly, he even blamed the liberal anti-gun laws to defend his big spending on the dog’s purchase. In his words:
Before you talk about how I should defend myself with guns, New York City won’t even allow me to have a gun. New Jersey doesn’t have stand your ground laws and hardly allows you to even own guns.
The paper added that King failed to explain why his progressive political action committee made the purchase for him.
Famous independent journalist Andy Ngo, who has exposed the crimes of Antifa and BLM for years, reported on Wednesday how King vengefully went after The New York Post for its investigations into his lavish spending. Ngo tweeted: “Shaun King is targeting their journalists, asking for photos of their families & info on where they live.”
Ngo wrote that King deleted some of his tweets targeting NYPost journalists but added some new ones.
Shaun King is the latest of the several BLM activists that have been reported for squandering money collected from people in the name of supporting black people’s civil rights. This year in March, BLM activist Monica Cannon Grant was arrested and indicted for squandering $1 million of donation funds on expensive hotel stays, vacations, and meals at Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. In September 2020, BLM leader Sir Maejor Page was arrested for using $200,000 in donations on personal expenses.
