In Shocking Essay, ‘Black Lives Matter’ Activist Deray Mckesson Accuses Shaun King of Fraud, Deception

A shocking fracture in the Black Lives Matter movement came Thursday when popular activist DeRay Mckesson penned an article in Medium accusing fellow movement figurehead Shaun King of fraud and deception.

Mckesson, better known by just his first name and his signature puffy blue vest, said King had developed a disturbing pattern that was becoming more and more noticeable.

Mckesson claimed he had tried to take the high road and work through back channels but King’s continued misbehavior warranted public exposure.

The New York Daily News columnist didn’t do much to engender trust after his meteoric rise to fame within the activist culture, with rumors beginning to fly of his mistreatment of women – Black women in particular – and his mismanagement of funds. Not only that, King more recently made several grave errors in judgment, outing two men he believed to be involved in two separate hate crimes, only to discover he had exposed the wrong people.

Mckesson laid out a thorough and tight timeline of King’s disturbing behavior, beginning with the founding of King’s organization “Justice Together” and detailing the problems in the operation. Some of his points included:

1. When people disagreed, they were removed from the group or it was stated that they were white supremacists or trolls.

Mckesson expounded on each point with impressive detail. The entire essay is lengthy, but includes a strong and thorough thread all the way through King’s most recent transgressions. He also questioned King’s claims of raising over $35 million in funds for various charities. Apparently King was simply claiming the fundraising efforts of organizations he had shared information about on social media.

Then there is Clarissa Brooks.

Mckesson goes to painstaking lengths to expose the depth of King’s financial scams and mistreatment of employees. It is an impressive collection of information, witness reports and records.

What is even more impressive is his willingness to call out the bad eggs at the risk of humiliating a movement he believes in.

Deray: Shaun King lacks integrity, is not an effective leader, and is a bully

Westlake Legal Group deray Deray: Shaun King lacks integrity, is not an effective leader, and is a bully The Blog Shaun King DeRay Mckesson

Black Lives Matter activist Deray McKesson just dropped the hammer on Shaun King. In a lengthy post published on Medium, Deray offers a long list of organizing and fundraising efforts by King which have either failed or ended without clear indications of where the money went. In fact, Deray comes close to accusing King of fraud. Note that the emphasis below is in the original text:

Deray also faults King for his way of avoiding straight answers to questions about his activities, which he says involves denial, claiming to be a victim, and bullying:

Deray says King is taking advantage of people but no one wants to admit its happening:

I have seen many people, against their better judgment, defend Shaun. I know because I was once one of those people. We are all apt to defend own decision-making, especially about people. But the love for our people must be greater than the love of any one person. Shaun has continued to thrive because many people cannot believe that they have been duped, used, or taken advantage of.

All of this is just the prelude to the rest of the piece in which Deray lists organizations King has founded and fundraised for, often with no evidence the groups ever accomplished anything in the real world. It’s all worth reading but here’s a sample:

The North Star Seems to have followed a similar pattern of starting an effort, bringing in committed people, fundraising and then questionable follow through.
Launched in November 2018 in partnership with a Black independent media host and podcaster Benjamin Dixon, began fundraising to start an effort built on the legacy of Frederick Douglass and liberatory journalism. While there is an online blog and a podcast, there was promised daily news video programming and other content that does not seem to have been published.

It is unclear how much has been raised since the soft launch in November 2018, but with tens of thousands of members paying monthly it is curious there has not been a daily news program as promised.

Several staffers in the initial phases were hired and then laid off, and it is unclear if the Atlanta studio is still in use.

Several former staffers have reached out to me but were afraid to say anything publicly because of non-disclosure agreements that were signed of which Shaun maintains the sole copies. Even former employees who did not sign NDAs that require their silence were afraid to speak out because they did not want him to use his platform against them.

One of the things that was brought to my attention was that Shaun fundraised for The North Star, in part, by saying that white supremacists were hacking the website but this, in fact, was untrue. Instead, the site had been built poorly and just needed better technological infrastructure.

Deray also mentions King’s history of sloppy allegations including the sensational allegation of rape which he promoted last year. I’m willing to give Deray some credit for speaking the truth about someone close to him. But frankly, Deray himself isn’t blameless when it comes to telling the truth. He was one of the people promoting conspiracy theories about Sandra Bland:

So far, this tweet appears to be the only response from King to Deray’s post on Medium:

Fraudster Shaun King Calls Antifa Firebomber a “Martyr” While Encouraging More Violence

This seems fine.

Shaun King, noted white guy, media personality, and self-styled #blacklivesmatter leader, praised the man who tried to firebomb an ICE facility as a “martyr.”

He deleted the tweets, but no worries, I’ve got the contents.

Willem Van Spronsen just became the first martyr attempting to liberate imprisoned refugees from a for-profit detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

His hero was John Brown -the white abolitionist who led the raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859.

I’m not sure what the facility being “for profit” matters. But hey, it’s a good buzz-phrase.

The people in the facility have been detained by ICE because they have lawful deportation orders against them. Comparing any aspect of this nut job, who was incited by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohorts, to John Brown is just ludicrous.

No one is being enslaved here and just like Holocaust comparisons, it’s incredibly insensitive and gross to make such comparisons. These are people who purposely chose to break the law and even then, most of them had the opportunity to choose self-deportation instead of remaining in custody.

King goes on to laud the domestic terrorist as a hero who’s now “arm in arm with John Brown,” because this kind of praising of nonsensical violence totally isn’t dangerous.

We are told that this is the final letter of Willem Van Spronsen – who was shot and killed by law enforcement as he attempted an attack on a for-profit refugee detention center in Tacoma, Washington.

It’s a beautiful, painful, devastating letter.

He wasn’t crazy -inaction is. pic.twitter.com/YMO1vhXCHn

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

So not acting is crazy? Then why is King not acting, instead choosing to hide behind Twitter? Is he a coward? Does he not really oppose Nazis? Inquiring minds and all that.

This is where Willem was murdered this weekend.

His actions will be called terrorism and people will call him crazy, but neither are true. His mind was very clear.

He is now “arm in arm with John Brown.”

These camps must be shut down. pic.twitter.com/wzQPEYC2j9

— Shaun King (@shaunking) July 15, 2019

His actions are being called terrorism because they were. Firebombing a government facility to push a political narrative is the definition of terrorism.

But leave it to a man who’s such a fraudster that he’s been dubbed “Talcolm X” to make ridiculous tweets like this, appropriating slavery in the process and basically begging for more people to get killed.

Will any of the outlets he works for condemn him? Nah, of course not. Will the media call him out? Of course not. He’s not a Republican after all.

Shaun King: The Antifa terrorist who was killed while attacking an ICE detention facility is a martyr

The tweets have since been deleted, whether because King thought better of them (unlikely) or because Twitter warned him privately that even a Woke Jedi would have to be banned for appearances’ sake for endorsing political violence this blatantly if the tweets stayed up. But let’s memorialize them, just for ease of reference the next time some liberal claims that no one on the left with any following supports Antifa. King has more than a million followers on the platform, far more than most members of Congress. Not only does he support the group, he supports potentially lethal violence perpetrated by them aimed at certain targets.

Thank Alex Griswold for preserving them for posterity:

Note the description of Van Spronsen’s killing by police to stop an attack in progress as “murder.”

Here’s another from a few weeks ago via Jeryl Bier:

“Guarantee you if I were to write something valorizing someone who shot up an abortion clinic I would be hard-banned here so fast you wouldn’t even get to see my farewell tweet,” sniffed Jeff Blehar last night when King’s posts were circulating on Twitter, which is certainly true. How is it that King still has an account today? The best-case scenario here is that Twitter let him off with a warning. The worst-case is that they didn’t object at all, and King voluntarily deleted his tweet due to the flak he was getting. Either way, why does King walk while some pro-lifer demanding that abortion clinics be “liberated” through force would be burned at the virtual stake?

Also, has Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed in yet on the Antifa attack? The way the game is played when a nutter from the right — or even not of the right, as in the case of Jared Loughner — attacks someone on the left is that mainstream Republican politicians are immediately called to account for the “climate of hate” their rhetoric has allegedly created. This imbecile spent the past month using her congressional perch to call ICE detention facilities “concentration camps” and the nut who tried to blow up the ICE facility in Tacoma seems to have taken it to heart. What decent person wouldn’t attempt a liberate an actual concentration camp if they could, after all?

Rebel Media is a right-wing outlet. AOC did eventually say at last night’s “Squad” press conference that “any act of violence is of course terrible” when she was asked about this by the Daily Caller — another right-wing outlet. Did even one “neutral” or left-wing media source request comment from her before these two did? It’s a much straighter line from “detention facilities are concentration camps” to attacking a detention facility than it was from Sarah Palin’s congressional crosshairs map in 2010 to Loughner’s insanity months later. Yet the wider media seemed much, much, much more interested in the latter than the former.

Maybe they were too busy yesterday asking Republican congressmen if they reject Trump’s “climate of hate” on Twitter to worry about whether AOC’s demagoguery is egging on progressives to literally kill people.

Anyway, there’ll be more of this because the far left is trash from top to bottom.
