Daily Wire host Candace Owens blasted Patrisse Khan-Cullors, one of the founders of radical activist group Black Lives Matter (BLM), questioning why Khan-Cullors is purchasing pricey homes in predominately white neighborhoods if white people are her supposed “oppressors.”
Owens told Fox News host Tucker Carlson that some $25 million dollars raised by BLM was directed toward “building a black movement.”
“Apparently, the ‘black movement’ was Patrisse moving herself, a black woman, into other areas of the communities of people that she claims are oppressing black Americans,” Owens mocked.
“Why doesn’t she want to live amongst black people?” she asked. “Why is she choosing to move herself into an all-white neighborhood? These are important questions.”
According to a report from the New York Post, Khan-Cullors is reportedly on a “real-estate buying binge,” already purchasing four homes with a price tag totaling upwards of $3 million. Notably, one of the homes was purchased at $1.4 million and located in a secluded area of Los Angeles, where the population is reportedly less than 2% black.
“A secluded mini-compound tucked into L.A.’s rustic and semi-remote Topanga Canyon was recently sold for a tad more than $1.4 million to a corporate entity that public records show is controlled by Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37-year-old social justice visionary and co-founder of the galvanizing and, for some, controversial Black Lives Matter movement,” dirt.com reported.
The liberal activist was also eyeing a spot in an “ultra-exclusive” resort in the Bahamas, where musician Justin Timberlake and iconic golfer Tiger Woods both have homes. The Post detailed:
Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.
The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report. The 2,370 square-foot property features “soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows” with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show.
Owens also mockingly commended Khan-Cullors for staying true to her “communist” values. “She has my respect because she’s unapologetic in her approach. She’s telling you what she is. She’s a Marxist. So Marxists steal money from other people and they enrich themselves until the people that they stole from are poor. And so she has stolen money from other people on the pretext of a lie that is Black Lives Matter.”
“I mean, you have to kind of appreciate the honesty; she’s not hiding by any means, you know. … She’s a communist through and through, and she’s been unbelievably unapologetic in her approach,” Owens added.
It’s unclear if Khan-Cullors has done anything shady or illegal with the BLM funds, but her actions have prompted Hawk Newsome, the head of Black Lives Matter Greater New York City, to call for “an independent investigation” to find out how the global network spends its money, the Post reported this weekend.
“If you go around calling yourself a socialist, you have to ask how much of her own personal money is going to charitable causes,” Newsome said. “It’s really sad because it makes people doubt the validity of the movement and overlook the fact that it’s the people that carry this movement.”
