Need to send the Hypocrisy Meter in for overhaul - just wasn't designed for stories like these...
For anyone wondering if hypocrisy can actually be breathtaking, I give you...

I posted a comment in the last day or two about BLM co-founder Patrisse Khan-Cullors recently revealed purchase of a quarter-acre "mini-compound" in Topanga Canyon, LA - a deal to good to pass up, apparently, at only $1.4 million. Because nothing says revolutionary zeal and concern for the downtrodden like chilling out in an 88% white elite Left Coast enclave, presumably.
Well, while those who pared their food budget to contribute to BLM, or those whose livelihoods were devastated by having their businesses or places of work destroyed in last summer's
riots, arson and pillaging mostly peaceful protests might find that interesting enough, it seems that, like a shopping channel commercial, There's More!
Apparently, this is not the first, and maybe not the most expensive acquisition she has made.
2016 - house in Inglewood (LA) $510,000 (now worth near $800,000+
2018 - house in South LA $590,000 (now worth $720,000)
2020 - "custom ranch" house and hangar for private plane on 3.2 acres in Conyers, GA (includes access to community runway) beating those SoCal prices at a mere $415,000
2021 - Topanga Canyon property $1.4 million
She and her wife were also observed last year shopping for a unit at "The Albany" on New Providence Is., Bahamas, (units are said to go for from $5-20 million) but it is not confirmed that they purchased anything.

But, as a self-described "trained Marxist", I'm sure that there is nothing about this to lessen her determination to see the abolition of private property...
“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

and then we have:
Lockdowns for Thee, But not for Me
Trish Foster. Chief operations officer (whatever that is) in the administration of Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
It seems that just days after Whitmer's warning against travel to Florida and reiterating about mask use, social distancing, etc., Foster - who had a family member, apparently her son - down with Covid, took off for an (apparently) mask and social distancing-free holiday in sunny Key West.
And, of course, posted pics of the whole thing on Face
plantbook. Which were subsequently taken down, but thoughtfully saved by Breitbart.
Probably doesn't bother Whitmer all that much - doubt if she has any re-election prospects and can likely cash in elsewhere, anyway - but it didn't stop her from blaming White Nationalists for exposing it.
