Gun control groups are promoting and helping fund “anti-violence“ groups around the country. Here’s the latest from one in Boston:
BOSTON (CBS) – A federal grand jury has indicted Monica Cannon-Grant and her husband Clark Grant, the founders of Violence In Boston, on more than a dozen charges for allegedly using the nonprofit for their own benefit.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Massachusetts announced on Tuesday that Cannon-Grant, 41, and Grant, 38, both Taunton residents, are facing charges as part of an 18-count indictment.
A grand jury found the couple allegedly led a series of schemes designed to defraud Violence in Boston donors, the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance, and a mortgage lending business based in Chicago.
Federal prosecutors allege the couple intended to use charitable donations for their personal benefit.
Charges included 13 counts of wire fraud and one count of making false statements to a mortgage lending business. In addition, Cannon-Grant faces one count of mail fraud.
Founded in 2017, Violence in Boston said its purpose is to “to reduce violence, raise social awareness and aid community causes in Boston.” Cannon-Grant is the founder and CEO of the organization, and Grant is a founding director.
Violence in Boston has partnered groups for their mission, such as Moms Demand Action, March For Our Lives, etc:
They actually defrauded Everytown/Moms Demand Action potentially lol. Will Shannon Watts make a statement?
It’s odd though, why would Moms Demand partner with people like this?
However, despite her mainstream acceptance Cannon-Grant frequently uses her ability to organize large crowds as a threat to intimidate her political opponents, as she did with Walsh before he capitulated to her demands. In February she threatened to organize “45,000 mother f***ers to be on y’all’s front lawn,” before saying “f*** the police, f*** the police, f*** the police, f*** the police.”
Weaponizing the mob is no mere threat either. In 2017 Cannon-Grant misrepresented an image of a young black girl from a Bridgewater Elementary School, who volunteered to play the part of the baby in a standard presentation put on by the Plymouth Plantation, shared it on social media, and encouraged people to harass the teacher and school.
Black lives matter activist Shaun King soon picked up on it, which led to widespread death threats against the school and teacher, forcing the school to temporarily shut down.
Also from the links (video evidence/documents included in them):
Congresswoman Pressley is facing a challenge in November from Republican Rayla Campbell, a black mother of three from Randoph.
Seeing as she is a Republican, many Trump supporters are also supporting her campaign, including people associated with Super Fun Happy America, the group that organized the trolling “Straight Pride Parade” last August. Although this group is cartoonish and ridiculous at times, they are relatively harmless. However, because of their conservative ties they are often accused of being white nationalists.
Some of these people showed up at a Campbell campaign event last week in Randolph, which upset Cannon-Grant who responded by posting a viciously racist 30 minute video on Facebook, which she has since removed. You can watch the entire thing here, but I’ve put together some of the stronger talking points.
In regards to Campbell’s white husband and alleged blackness:
“This heffer running against Ayanna Pressley. This one here with the white husband. At some point we gonna have to have a conversation with black folks who get in a conversation with white folks and then forget that they black.”
“If white vagina and white penises jeopardize your melanin then we need you to sit in the back of the classroom and this ain’t your part of the show and you don’t get to talk right now.”
“Regardless of how many white penises you ride, and I ain’t mad at you sis because if you riding that mother f***er for a credit score get you that house boo. Get you that 40 acres and a mule. Just don’t forget you a n***er.”
Come back to this:
These are the types of people that Everytown/Moms Demand attempt to fund (when the people they give money to don’t keep it for themselves) and partner with....
