In an effort to build on the momentum of Black Lives Matter, early last month, the Canadian environmentalist group behind Occupy Wall Street, AdBusters, urged it’s followers to gather in Washington D.C. on September 17th for a 50-day White House Siege that would last until Election Day or even after. Fortunately, the attempt failed miserably.
Despite public support for Black Lives Matter dropping steadily since June, the movement has become increasingly violent and that should be concerning to anyone. The New York Times notes BLM’s racist mob antagonism is growing across the country …. and it could soon end up at your front door. From the article:
“The marches in Portland are increasingly moving to residential and largely white neighborhoods, where demonstrators with bullhorns shout for people to come “out of your house and into the street” and demonstrate their support.
These more aggressive protests target ordinary people going about their lives, especially those who decline to demonstrate allegiance to the cause. That includes a diner in Washington who refused to raise her fist to show support for Black Lives Matter, or, in several cities, confused drivers who happened upon the protests.
But the tactics are dividing supporters of Black Lives Matter, with some worried that the confrontational approach will antagonize people who would otherwise be receptive to the message, or play into conservatives’ critique of the protests, which have been largely nonviolent nationally.”
The story quotes one Portland resident who says that what was supposed to be a movement about solutions has degenerated into nightly conflict that has gotten even worse over time with people in places where BLM is active fearful their violent mob will soon come to their neighborhod. If the McCloskeys are any example, no one is safe, because the violent, racist BLM mob is spreading to neighborhoods everywhere.
And your neighborhood could be next.
