As protests broke out across the country in the name of Black Lives Matter, the group’s co-founder went on a real estate-buying binge, snagging four high-end homes for $3.2 million in the US alone, according to property records.

Patrisse Khan-Cullors, 37, also eyed property in the Bahamas at an ultra-exclusive resort where Justin Timberlake and Tiger Woods both have homes, The Post has learned. Luxury apartments and townhouses at the beachfront Albany resort outside Nassau are priced between $5 million and $20 million, according to a local agent.

The self-described Marxist last month purchased a $1.4 million home on a secluded road a short drive from Malibu in Los Angeles, according to a report. The 2,370 square-foot property features "soaring ceilings, skylights and plenty of windows" with canyon views. The Topanga Canyon homestead, which includes two houses on a quarter acre, is just one of three homes Khan-Cullors owns in the Los Angeles area, public records show.

Wesley Hamilton should have been doing what he is currently doing before he was paralyzed. Leave the guns alone.

Can we just go to a Thrift Store, buy some sort of brass bowl, and give it to Donald Trump as a Peace Offering, telling him it came from Mitch McConnell?

Would that calm him down and help him recognize that he lost?

We can have it inscribed "WORLD'S GREATEST LOSER"!

The Libtards know the loose COVID-era election rolls and flat-out cheating helped them win. In no other election, was voting stopped in the middle of the night. Nearly 20% of Libtards think their own party cheated to help Basement Joe win. The courts didn't want to rock the boat because they were afraid of the Libtard nutcases, which is a redundant term.

The chimpster really gets upset, posting his tired "geezer, old, chucklowe" shit when he faces the fact the folks now see that his venerated Nubian Queen gets caught with her hand in the till, fucking over the chimp and his stupid hood-mates.

Anyone still think Nordstrom's is going to actually complete the move to the plaza?
Anonymous said…
no i do not 11:21.

i don't have a problem with peaceful protests but why does BLM target the plaza for these demonstrations? there aren't any decisions or decision makers in that locale. it's a shopping area. the prosecutor and police are elsewhere. protest city hall or police headquarters or something. plaza is hurting guys, take a hint, you aren't helping it.

Police Union bosses support Joe Biden and Marxist Democrat Party.

and yet;

The Marxist Democrat Party leaders like Biden, Kamala Harris, Minneapolis Mayor, Governor plus the Marxist Democrat Party Media throw the rank and file police officers under the bus when criminals are fatally shot resisting arrest.

Interesting dynamic.

Wonder if the rank and file police officers follow the instructions of their union bosses to vote for the Democrat Party that stabs them in the back?

US Calls For Pause On J&J COVID Vaccine Due To Deadly Blood Clots

All federal facilities will halt use of the jab immediately...

Oops! Just a little more than 1 month after approval by the FDA.

You've been lied to, for more than year now, about the "pandemic" killer-virus.

@11:21, it would be a foolish waste of money for some social justice pandering if they do. I'm surprised anything remains on the plaza. A lawyer chick I was dating lived up there. Moved to Chicago after getting held up at gunpoint a couple blocks from work. I quit going a couple years back after the amish utes had the entire street blocked off just crossing wherever and dragging their feet, cops were just standing around twiddling their thumbs. Traffic was backed up from buca to PF changs
