Fox News host Tucker Carlson shard a video that linked Black Lives Matter to terrorists and he has paid a price for it.
Carlson shared the video on YouTube that showed Black Lives Matter is fiscally supported by a group that has a convicted terrorist on its Board of Directors, The Washington Examiner reported.
Alicia Garza, one of three co-founders of the Black Lives Matter national organization, has repeatedly talked about how convicted cop killer and wanted domestic terrorist Joanne Chesimard, also known as Assata Shakur, is one of her main inspirations. Susan Rosenberg, a member of the board of directors for the left-wing Thousand Currents group, which handles the intake of donations made to Black Lives Matter, is a convicted terrorist who, among other things, was suspected of helping Shakur escape from prison.
Rosenberg, who was listed as the vice chairwoman of the board of directors for Thousand Currents until the webpage was pulled down this week, as first reported by the Capital Research Center, had been a member of the radical leftist revolutionary militant group known as the May 19th Communist Organization, affiliated with the Weather Underground terrorist group and other radicals. She was convicted on weapons and explosives charges and sentenced to 58 years in prison, serving 16 years before being pardoned by President Bill Clinton in January 2001…
Rosenberg was a radical in the 1960s and 1970s who landed on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for a number of suspected crimes and was nabbed in 1984 while unloading from her car and into a New Jersey storage unit hundreds of pounds of dynamite along with weapons, including a sub-machine gun. She was believed to have been part of future politically motivated bombing plots. Rosenberg and her M19 associates were also charged with roles in bombings during the 1980s at the Capitol and the Navy War College, among other targets. They were also tied to a 1981 Brink’s armored car robbery that killed a guard and two police officers.
Rosenberg was believed to have also played a role in Shakur’s escape from prison.
Carlson reported on the connections on July 8 but now YouTube has removed the video, The Gateway Pundit reported.
Black Lives Matter Global Network has received substantial national news coverage, and it recently received $6.5 million in donations. The network is an unincorporated pseudo organization, and according to the IRS, it is not a 501(C)(3) charity, nor is it registered with the California charity registry. Why is it able to receive charitable donations…by using the Thousand Currents 501(C)(3) charity through what is known as ‘fiscal sponsorship’?
Fiscal sponsorships funnel money through a “conduit arrangement” between a nonprofit sponsor like Thousand Currents to a pseudo organization or a group of individuals to exploit the IRS tax code. Donors should receive a tax deduction receipt from the fiscal sponsor.
Even tough Carlson’s video was removed copies were made of it and shared on YouTube which have not been deleted.
But Carlson’s video would get significantly more traffic than random people on YouTube and the moderators at the video sharing site know that.
