As violent crime surges primarily in America’s liberal urban centers, a GOP official is slamming Democrats for the catastrophic effects of police defunding as well as calling out the murky financing of community-absent BLM and the organization’s self-muzzled corporate enablers.
“They have proven themselves to be fraudulent in their handling of money, and they need to be held accountable, as well as these corporate donors who gave to them need to be held accountable as well,” Republican National Committee spokesman Paris Dennard claimed.
Dennard offered this analysis during a discussion on “Fox & Friends First” during which he also implied that the radical left only concerns itself with officer-involved shootings.
The early morning show co-host Carly Shimkus introduced the segment embedded above by noting that BLM-backing corporate America won’t respond to Fox News “as the country sees a drastic spike in black murders.”
“So where is the outrage?” Shimkus asked rhetorically.

“Where is the outrage is the question,” Dennard acknowledged. “And we see time and time again that the woke corporate media that you see, they remain silent. We see Democrats remain silent. It seems as if the Black Lives Matter organization should be screaming and talking about these black lives that should matter to them, but they don’t seem to matter to them because they don’t fit their narrative.
Dennard went on to assert that the defund-the-police movement was “more than a movement, it was actually implemented.”
“Those young Americans who are dying every day — those parents who are so concerned about the issue of public safety — and the nation has to stand up and say ‘enough is enough, we have to put politics aside, and do something to curb the violence.’ We have to be tough on crime; we also have to support our men and women that are in uniform. We have to support them; we cannot defund them, and we cannot besmirch their character.”
Later in the segment, Dennard gave a two-fold history or civics lesson to a Democrat strategist who was also on the panel.
“Number one: If the Biden/Harris administration and the Democrats that control the House and the Senate really cared about police reform, they would have gotten something done in the past two years, and they have not done that, on top of the fact that Sen. Cory Booker walked away from negotiating table with Sen. Tim Scott, the Republican of South Carolina, when it came to police reform. So they have not held up their end of the bargain on doing something about that,” he explained.
“Second point is: When it comes to the Black Lives Matter organization, the foundation, they have been shown to be conducting themselves in a lot of activities that are problematic. They are not being held accountable,” he continued.
“They spent millions of dollars on mansions. You have the mother of Tamir Rice telling them to stop pandering to the black community and failing to show up to actually do something to help the community. You have the father of Michael Brown sue them for $20 million for not supporting the community, and you have people like Rev. Corey Brooks, the ‘rooftop pastor,’ still sitting on his rooftop trying to build something in Chicago,” Dennard noted. “Black Lives Matter could have [written] a check to him years ago. But they haven’t because they are not doing anything to actually be present in the community, be present to actually help community organizations.”

“They have proven themselves to be fraudulent in their handling of money, and they need to be held accountable, as well as these corporate donors who gave to them need to be held accountable as well,” Dennard concluded.
BLM has reportedly raked in at least $60 million in donations.
FBI data indicate that a 32% increase in black murders tragically occurred in 2020 as compared to the prior year, Fox News reported earlier this month.
