(PresidentialWire.com)- Black Lives Matter and Antifa activists set up a fundraiser for Jacob Blake, the man who is accused of sexually assaulting a woman and committing other violent crimes and who was shot by police when he resisted around. The GoFundMe page, which has not been taken down by the platform, has now surpassed $2 million in donations. The money is being given predominantly by far-left activists from Antifa and Black Lives Matter.
Video footage of the incident with Jacob Blake shows him resisting arrest, ignoring police officers, and walking towards his car. He opened the door and leaned into the vehicle to grab what police officers understood to be a weapon. They then shot to disable the man and cared for him while medical support arrived at the scene.
Had Blake complied with the arrest – there were multiple open warrants for his arrest at the time – then he would be safe and uninjured in a jail cell or on bail right now. Instead, he is recovering from gunshot wounds. Then again, he wouldn’t be a millionaire.

The local police department said that “during the investigation following the initial incident, Mr. Blake admitted that he had a knife in his possession.”
So he was resisting arrest and also had a knife in his possession.
“DCI agents recovered a knife from the driver’s side floorboard of Mr. Blake’s vehicle,” they said. “A search of the vehicle located no additional weapons.”
Despite this, the fundraiser continues to raise millions of dollars for a man who was reaching for a weapon while resisting arrest.
And, of course, no mention of the ex-girlfriend who claims Blake entered her home without permission on May 3 and sexually assaulted her. Where is the #MeToo movement on this? Aren’t Blake’s ex-girlfriend the people (allegedly) victimized by this man more deserving of support than he is?
On July 6, Blake was charged with third-degree sexual assault, disorderly conduct and misdemeanor trespassing relating to a domestic abuse case.
No mention of that on the GoFundMe page either.
