Maybe BLM activists should identify as white and infiltrate that huge white supremacist movement they're always on about . . . .

They would have to stop judging people by the color of their skin and I'm not sure they're capable of doing that.

BLM Global Network reported just $9.3 million in contributions for its fiscal year ending in June 2022, the Washington Free Beacon reported. The amount identified in the state filings is a $67 million decrease from the $77 million the nonprofit pulled in during its previous fiscal year.

Well I guess it must be time to go on another loot and burn extortion spree

Black Lives Matter donations drastically plummeted by nearly $70 million

Even worse: I'm one of those ultra-extreme right radicals who thinks nobody should be cutting off a 5 year old child's naughty parts.

Not seeing a down side there.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Mor Money

Quote
The city of Seattle has agreed to pay $10 million to 50 Black Lives Matter protesters who sued the police department for claiming they used excessive force during the riots in 2020, in a settlement announced by attorneys from both sides on Wednesday.

"This decision was the best financial decision for the City considering risk, cost, and insurance," said City Attorney Davison. "The case has been a significant drain on the time and resources of the City and would have continued to be so through an estimated three-month trial that was scheduled to begin in May."

"Insurance"

Paying both sides but BLM got way more

Quote
In February, the city of Seattle agreed to pay $3.6 million to settle a lawsuit filed by more than a dozen business owners and residents whose properties faced significant damages at the hands of protesters.

Didn't the taxpayers vote in the current politicians? Won't they probably vote the same people in again?

True enough.  I guess we're doomed unless we can convince more than 50 percent of the voters that "government money" isn't created out of thin air.
