The biggest Black Lives Matter page on Facebook was fake news.
Citing a review of the page and associated accounts and websites, CNN reported Monday that the page titled Black Lives Matter was a scam with ties to a middle-aged white man in Australia.
The official Black Lives Matter page (https://www.facebook.com/BlackLivesMatter) has less than 330,000 Likes and Follows. According to CNN, the Australian page had more than twice that many.
Facebook had suspended the Australian page by the time of CNNs Monday report, but only because, CNN claimed, it had suspended a user account that administrated the page.
The scam page was tied to online campaigns that raised at least $100,000, at least some of which was transferred to Australian accounts, CNN reported.
The page had the address BlackLivesMatter1.
The page consistently linked to websites tied to Ian Mackay, a National Union of Workers official in Australia, CNN reported, adding that the union did not respond to its request for comment.
Patrisse Cullors, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, told CNN that had long suspected the page of being a scam and had asked Facebook to remove it months ago.

Funny. Bet there are more like this.
Setting up fake hate sites pays off.
It’s also a good way to raise funds from commie groups that can be donated to OUR candidates. I’m amused that the guy who did this is a union official.
Cool! Useful idiots lack brains. There so opened minded their brains have fallen out.
“Patrisse Cullors, one of the co-founders of the Black Lives Matter movement, “ had long asserted that BlackLivesMatter1 was a scam...
Takes one to know one.
I have been having a lot of trouble with my their/there/they're lately. I think it's because I quite drinking.
BLM = Black Leftists Misled
Seriously, what is the obsession with the left and this race change crap? Fauxcahontas Warren, Sean King, Kamala Harris who yet again was being called an African American yesterday. Do blacks understand that they are being mocked by the left or they just don’t care?
Did CNN actually use the word "administrated"?
Shrimp on the Barbie Lives Matter
The “BLM aussie” says to the “Nigerian prince” as he whips out a wad of cash and holds it under the “prince’s” nose, “That’s not a scam. THAT’S a scam!”
Dang, wish I'd thought of that. Thanks Trillian.
