It was recently reported that left-wing activist Shaun King reportedly used $40k of donor money on a designer dog to protect him from “white supremacists.”
Following the report, King blamed liberal gun laws for him needing the dog to protect him from the “white supremacists.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, King’s PAC, Grassroots Law, has handed over the money in a pair of payments to Potrero Performance Dogs in California.
The PAC paid Potrero $10,000 in December 2021, followed by a $30,650 payment in February 2022, the report showed.
King posted on Facebook days after the second payment about welcoming a “new member of the King family,” a Mastiff and prize show dog named Marz, in a post that has since been deleted or made private.
In a pair of Instagram posts that have also since been deleted or made private, Potrero revealed that Marz’s stay with the King family was reportedly not long-lived.
In one Instagram post, Marz has “a little too much energy to be a family dog so he came back” and then in July, Potrero posted Instagram photos of the dog winning top prize at an American Kennel Club competition.
Since the report has been published, King lashed out in what the New York Post described as a rambling Instagram post.
“I have to say some things that I’ve worked hard to keep private for the safety and security of my family. But I need you to know this so that you understand why our family not only needs a guard dog at home, but 24/7 security wherever we go.”
“White supremacists and people who’ve meant my family harm have now shown up to our last three homes. Multiple times.”
“Before you talk about how I should defend myself with guns, New York City won’t even allow me to have a gun. New Jersey doesn’t have stand your ground laws and hardly allows you to even own guns. News outlets have shown our home and exact location online, which then caused a slew of strangers to show up at our home.”
“We’ve had people come up on our front yard. And up our backyard, frightening the hell out of my family.”
“We’ve had people file fake police reports against us. Causing the police to show up at our home.”
“We’ve had people file fake child abuse reports against us. Causing child services to harass us for months.”
“I’ve had complete strangers confront me in public because of total fabrications they heard about me online and even had someone put their hands on me over lies they read online.”
“When my daughter almost died when she was hit by a car she needed extra security because people were coming to the hospital to harass us.”
“I’ve had hundreds of death threats – including from police, military snipers, and white supremacist groups. Even when I file cases with the FBI they’ve done nothing, so we stopped even filing them.”
“I’ve received death threats in the mail, in email, and across social media. I report it. Nothing happens.”
“A dozen white supremacists and police officers are in prison right now because of my work. Several have recently been released.”
“Police have caused problems with my children at their schools over me. I f*cking kid you not. This is what my life has become. “
“I spend more time each day now thinking about how to keep my family safe than I do doing the actually work I’m called to do.”
“So know this, when you see reports about the money it costs to keep me and my family safe, it’s nowhere near enough. Not at all. Not even close”
