This is the final in a series of four FOOD FOR THOUGHT posts discussing things the liberal media won’t tell you about Black Lives Matter written by Fred Lucas.
WHAT IS THOUSAND CURRENTS?
Thousand Currents, which underwrites the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, describes itself as an organization that “envisions a world where humanity thrives as a creative force that is in reciprocal and interdependent with nature, and creates loving, equitable and just societies.” Notably, the vice chairwoman of the board of directors for Thousand Currents is Susan Rosenberg, a convicted felon who participated in bombing buildings in the Northeast and Washington, D.C. In an email, The Daily Signal asked Thousands Currents about Rosenberg’s position on the board of directors. That morning, the organization’s webpage about the board included a short bio of Rosenberg. By late afternoon, that page no longer was available and a message said: “Ooops. Sorry. This page doesn’t exist.”
Rosenberg was part of M19, short for May 19th Communist Organization. Her memoir “An American Radical,” details her 16 years in federal prison. At her sentencing hearing in 1984, Rosenberg urged supporters to “continue to fight for the defeat of U.S. imperialism.” “One of the biggest bombs they had went off in the U.S. Capitol and tore up that fine Democratic slave owner John C. Calhoun’s portrait,” Capital Research Center’s Scott Walter said of Rosenberg and M19. “The Weather Underground wasn’t really radical enough for her. Some of those people ended up wimping out and going off to be stock brokers and whatever. That wasn’t good enough for her and she stayed radical.” M19’s bombings reportedly were for the sake of causing enough disruption to prevent President Ronald Regan’s reelection in 1984. Rosenberg was a member of the Weather Underground in the 1960s. Bill Clinton commuted her 58-year sentence on his last day in office in January 2001.
According to Capital Research Center, Thousand Currents also is a grant-making organization that assists various other left-of-center causes and has focused heavily on opposing genetically modified organisms. Donors include the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the NoVo Foundation, and the Libra Foundation. It had annual revenue of $6.8 million in 2018.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson was accused of anti-Semitism after posting quotes attributed to Hitler and praising Louis Farrakhan. His social media posts were dismissed across social media Tuesday and nothing else was said about the racism. If a white player said anything about African Americans as outrageous as what Jackson said about Jews, there would be one hell of an outrage from the far left and demands he be banished from the NFL.
