Fox News’s Jeanine Pirro lambasted Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders for creating racially charged division and criminally extorting money out of people in the name of social equity in the aftermath of George Floyd’s 2020 death.
“Do the corporations that gave them money consider themselves extorted? I mean, did they do it for virtue-signaling,” Pirro said on Friday’s episode of “The Five.”
“Or did they do it because they felt they didn’t want to be boycotted or, you know… It’s like the mob coming in and saying… ‘You want protection? Give us the money,'” Pirro questioned.
The political talk show host referenced the stone-cold silence that was heard when FBI data showed that murders in the black population spiked by a troubling 32 percent in 2020 compared to the year prior.
“What’s most interesting about this is that the nation’s political culture has played a role in the crime that occurred during the pandemic and right after George Floyd’s murder, because we know that in Democrat-leaning cities, more African-Americans were killed or were victims of murder than they were in White-leaning Republican cities,” she noted.
“At the same time the crime is going up in the Black communities, you’ve got this Patrisse Cullors, who’s no better than a two-bit scammer that I prosecuted for years, who’s out there saying, ‘I want to take money for Black Lives Matter, you know, you people,'” Pirro said. “Whether she wants to call it white guilt, doesn’t matter. She used it to enrich herself, her baby daddy, her brother.”

“She gave more than five times the money for the Trayvon Martin Foundation to her baby daddy,” she said. “And I think that these people have to be prosecuted. Forget about the corporations. You know what? They got suckered. They get suckered all the time and I’m disgusted with them, but that’s not the big issue. The big issue is that this woman is now complaining that it’s being weaponized against her.”
Pirro asserted that justice was due for the BLM activists who used their so-called non-profit organization to scam people out of money for their personal gain.
“You know what? Let me show you the penal code. That’s being weaponized,” the former New York State judge and prosecutor said. “When they bring the justice system against you for the scamming the way they just did to an activist BLM leader in Boston who faces fraud charges for laundering 2020 donations for personally enriching themselves.”
“This is where we need the hand of justice to come in and start prosecuting these people. It’s not your piggy bank and how dare you cause division because you just want to make money for yourself,” she added.
