Black Lives Matter has called for a boycott against “white capitalism,” according to its website, asking supporters to not spend money at “white corporations” between Nov. 25 and Jan. 1.
Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke on Friday said that George Soros has “hijacked” the Black Lives Matter organization in order to promote anti-capitalism.
“This has George Soros funding written all over it, his movement the anti-capitalism movement, the anti-socialist movement has hijacked Black Lives Matter and they use them as a mask. They figured that coming out of the 60’s when they failed with this movement, they felt that they were too white and they needed to add color,” he said.
Billionaire investor George Soros has donated millions of dollars to Black Lives Matter through his Open Society Foundation, according to the Washington Times.
Clarke said that black people of all social classes and ages will feel the pain of not shopping at “white corporations.”
“There is going to be a whole lot of young black kids that are going to be disappointed on Christmas morning when they wake up and find no Air Jordans under the tree. For higher end blacks that like the labels Gucci, Louis Vuitton, I guess not this year,” he told FOX Business Liz MacDonald on “Risk & Reward.”
The Black Lives Matter site also includes websites that list black organizations that people should buy from for the holiday season.
“Socialism and anti-capitalism have done nothing anywhere in the world, including the United States to help black people,” Clarke said.
