Group led by Black Lives Matter founder is ‘fiscally sponsored project’ of pro-China org

A group 分词定语led by one of the founders of Black Lives Matter has ties to a progressive pro-China organization 定语从句that acts as a fiscal sponsor to the group, according to a new report by a conservative think tank.

Black Futures Lab, 定语从句which says it “works with Black people to transform our communities, 分词状语building Black political power and changing the way that power operates – locally, statewide and nationally,” is headed by Alicia Garza – 同位语one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter.

But a new Heritage Foundation investigation has found 宾语从句that the Black Futures Lab’s website says 宾语从句the group is a project of a pro-China group 分词定语called the Chinese Progressive Association.

*Black Futures Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of the Chinese Progressive Association,” the “Donate” section of the website says. 动名词Clicking on the banner on the page takes the user to the CPA website.

The CPA was founded in 1972 and says 宾语从句it “educates, organizes and empowers the low-income and working-class immigrant Chinese community in San Francisco to build collective power with other oppressed communities to demand better living and working conditions and justice for all people.”

But the Heritage Foundation describes it as an organization定语从句 that has long supported the communist government in Beijing.

“From its start, it has been a promoter of the People’s Republic of China,” the report says.

Neither Black Futures Lab nor the Chinese Progressive Association responded to requests for comment from Fox News.

The Heritage investigation found宾语从句 that the Boston chapter teamed up with the Chinese consulate general in New York to offer Chinese nationals to renew passports – 分词状语picking up praise from Chinese state media – and has sponsored the Chinese flag 宾补flying over Boston’s City Hall to honor the Chinese Revolution.

The New York Times later challenged the Heritage Foundation’s report, 分词状语reporting that the San Francisco and Boston groups were not linked, despite sharing the same name. The Times article also quoted officials from both groups 宾补denying that they are “pro-communist.”

The executive director of the San Francisco group called the Heritage report “a ridiculous disinformation effort.”

The Heritage report’s author, Mike Gonzalez, later posted a lengthy rebuttal of the Times’ fact-check, 分词状语claiming 宾语从句that the groups do in fact collaborate and that “both the Boston and San Francisco versions of the Chinese Progressive Association work at times to push the agenda of China’s communist government here in the United States, and that both chapters are praised regularly by China’s state-owned mouthpieces.”

The initial investigation also cited an essay by one of the Boston CPA’s co-founders,定语从句 in which they called for a “revolutionary strategy” to achieve a “fundamentally different society.” The report also found宾语从句 that the CPA picked up praise recently again from Chinese state media for taking part in Black Lives Matter protests in San Francisco.

“Communist China has put its vast propaganda apparatus to work in support of the mayhem 定语从句that has wreaked havoc in American cities this year,” Gonzalez said in the report. “China is, after all, a rival of the United States, and would see 动名词weakening of U.S. society and the country in general as advantageous.”

“The involvement of an outfit as closely associated with the Chinese government in the funding of one of Garza’s ventures is something else entirely, however,” he says.
