Amazon may have finally read the memo… but that has hardly stopped much of the nefarious operations of BLM. Gotta wonder if any other federal agency is looking at BLM much less those in media or the White House… digressing yes, but read on.

Amazon’s charity website has suspended the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation (BLMGNF) amid questions about the group’s financial transparency. AmazonSmile, which donates 0.5% from purchases to designated nonprofits, still lists dozens of local Black Lives Matter (BLM) chapters among its thousands of approved charities, but noticeably absent is the BLMGNF, the national arm of the BLM movement.

“We offer the AmazonSmile program to make it easy for our customers to support their favorite charitable organizations, and we work to offer a broad spectrum of organizations, including those working to end racial injustice,” an Amazon spokesperson told Fox News Digital. “States have rules for nonprofits, and organizations participating in AmazonSmile need to meet those rules. Unfortunately this organization fell out of compliance with the rules in several states, so we’ve had to temporarily suspend them from the program until they come into compliance.

“We hope that happens soon, and in the meantime, customers who have already selected them in AmazonSmile are able to continue supporting them, and we’ll hold any funds accrued until they’re back in compliance.”

The suspension was first reported by the Washington Examiner.

The news comes after BLMGNF shut down all of its online fundraising earlier this month following demands by attorneys general in California and Washington state that it submit delinquent financial disclosures for 2020, the Examiner reported. source

Back to that nefarious part –>

The 21-year-old activist charged with trying to murder a Kentucky mayoral candidate has been released from jail after his $100,000 bond was posted by a bail fund supported by the local Black Lives Matter chapter.

Quintez Brown’s cash bond was paid Wednesday afternoon by the Louisville Community Bail Fund, which is an arm of Black Lives Matter Louisville, news station WAVE reported.

Brown, who is accused of firing multiple shots inside the Louisville office of mayoral hopeful Craig Greenberg on Monday, walked free from the Metro Department of Corrections just hours later.

BLM Louisville organizer Chanelle Helm, who co-founded the bail fund, told the outlet that Brown would be safer out of prison — and claimed he was likely suffering from PTSD after two years of social unrest and the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In this case, we’re dealing with someone that has mental health issues,” Helm said.

“They are calling for this individual, this young man who needs support and help, to be punished to the full extent,” Helm added. “It is a resounding message that people are down for the torture that has taken place in our jails and prisons.”

The Louisville bail fund says on its social media page that it “exists to not only bail out folks, but provide post-release support to get them from jail, fed, and to a situation of safety.”

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell lashed out at the bail fund on Thursday, tweeting the “innocent people of Louisville deserve better.”

“Less than 48 hours after a far-left Black Lives Matter activist tried to literally murder a politician, the radical left bailed their comrade out of jail. It is just jaw-dropping,” McConnell wrote on Twitter.

Metro Council President David James also slammed the bail fund’s controversial decision to post Brown’s bond, saying: “They are going to be responsible for what he may or may not do to anybody.”

Brown, a University of Louisville student who is running as an independent for Louisville’s metro council, has been fitted with an ankle monitor and is being placed on home incarceration ahead of his trial.

He was arrested and charged with attempted murder after opening fire with a 9mm Glock handgun inside Greenberg’s campaign office on Monday.

Greenberg wasn’t struck by the gunfire, but said a bullet grazed his sweater.

Brown is also charged with four counts of wanton endangerment for allegedly firing shots near Greenberg’s staffers.

A judge on Tuesday ordered Brown to have no contact with Greenberg or his campaign staff — and said he cannot possess firearms.

Police said Brown appears to have acted alone and they are still investigating a motive for the shooting.
