Black Lives Matter was formed in 2020 in response to the death of George Floyd.
The group quickly became an influential force in the Democrat Party.
But the cofounder of Black Lives Matter just said one word about Joe Biden that could be bad news for him in 2024.
Joe Biden is expected to announce his re-election campaign sometime in the very near future.
Biden’s growing classified documents scandal threw a monkey wrench into his plans and put the administration in damage control mode.
But Biden also has another major problem in that the majority of Americans, including members of his own Party, do not want him to seek re-election in 2024.
A recent Washington Post/ABC News poll showed 58% of Democrats want someone other than Biden to be the Party’s nominee next year.
And now it appears Biden could be losing the support of the black community.
During an interview with the Guardian, Black Lives Matter (BLM) cofounder Patrisse Cullors ripped Joe Biden and accused him of failing the movement.
“Every year, families, community members, organizers have said this must stop and there’s a different way to do this,” Cullors said after discussing the recent police beating of Tyre Nichols in Memphis. “And yet there has been deep cowardice from officials.”
But then she went directly for Joe Biden.
“It’s truly a failure of leadership at the highest level, all the way up to our “resident,” Cullors said. “This movement was able to help get Joe Biden into office, and yet in his first State of the Union Address, he yelled: ‘Fund the police.’”
Cullors labeled it “a direct affront to the movement that called for resources out of policing and into social services,” adding that “our elected officials have decided to abandon a movement that could have saved the lives of the people who have died.”
Although she attacked Joe Biden, Cullors mentioned Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg in a positive light.
After her cousin Keenan Anderson was tased to death in a confrontation with police Los Angeles, California, last month, Cullors said Buttigieg personally reached out to her to offer his condolences.
Cullors said Buttigieg “asked if there’s anything he could do.”
The walls are closing in on Joe Biden.
He is embroiled in several scandals, including stolen classified documents and potential pay-to-play schemes involving his son Hunter.
His poll numbers are in the tank and Democrats are abandoning him by the day.
And now Joe Biden is under fire from one of the most influential groups in grassroots Democrat politics.
