A detailed Sept. 15 Daily Signal report revealed that one of Black Lives Matters founder Alicia Garza’s organizations is being funded by a Chinese pro-communist group, the Chinese Progressive Association (CPA) of San Francisco, Breitbart reported.
The CPA was founded in 1972 as a leftist organization to promote revolutionary Marxist thinking of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and to this day continues to function as a propaganda arm for the CCP in San Francisco, a city densely populated by mainland Chinese.
Last year, with the help of the Chinese consulate general in New York, the CPA raised the communist flag at Boston city hall on the anniversary of the CCP’s takeover of China.
According to the Daily Signal report, Alicia Garza’s Black Futures Lab is being funded by the CPA. When you click on “donate” on their website, the message “Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association” appears.
This is not the first time that these two organizations that share the same communist ideology have made the news. Last year Chinese state-run media China Daily praised the CPA for participating in the Black Lives Matters protests in San Francisco, “The Chinese community also showed up for the African American protests, as members of the Chinese Progressive Association joined thousands of others at a kneeling demonstration on June 1 in front of the San Francisco City Hall to demand justice for all black families brutalized by police.”
According to Influence Watch, CPA has been receiving donations in the millions. Between 2016 and 2017 alone, it recorded more than $6 million in revenue.
If the scenario was reversed, a right-wing organization funded by Russia creating riots in the United States when there is a Democratic president in the White House, the mainstream media would run story after story, and there would be congressional hearings demanding answers as to why a foreign force is interfering in Americans’ domestic affairs.
But it doesn’t seem to matter, perhaps because those responsible for doing so agree to create instability in the face of a possible re-election of President Trump; otherwise why is there no media coverage of Chinese communist interference in the United States? You be the judge.
