Where's the Outrage? BLM, Antifa Protesters Threaten to 'Burn' DC Down If They Don't Get What They Want

Share

Black Lives Matter and antifa protesters continued their performance-art “activism” by antagonizing police officers and yelling at civilians during a march in Washington, D.C., on Saturday.

The event was touted as the “DC Queer and Trans Black History Month March and Rally.”

It was organized by the black activist groups Total Liberation Collective and the Palm Collective, according to Fox News.

As they marched through residential neighborhoods and terrorized restaurant patrons, protesters shouted: “Black lives, they matter here!” and “If we don’t get it, burn it down!”

Basically, the left-wing agitators threatened to torch D.C. if they didn’t get what they want.

“We are here tonight because black lives matter,” the group said, repeating the words of a man with a megaphone. “Despite black lives mattering, black people are still dying at the hands of the police paid for by our tax dollars.”

The Black Lives Matter and antifa protesters also shouted the anti-police chant, “ACAB! All Cops Are Bastards!”

At one point, the mob scuffled with police officers in front of a restaurant.

Predictably, the same liberal peanut gallery that hyperventilated when Trump supporters marched for election integrity on Jan. 6 did not condemn the violent threats of the BLM and antifa thugs this weekend.

The establishment media are afraid to criticize Black Lives Matter because they’re terrified of being smeared as “racists.”

However, a growing number of black activists have slammed BLM as a Marxist terrorist organization that’s weaponizing white guilt and black resentment to destroy the country.

Civil rights pioneer Clarence Henderson slammed BLM, saying it is not a legitimate civil rights movement.

“They are Marxists,” Henderson told Fox Business in August. “Their intentions are to tear down the fabric of America.”

Carol Swain, an attorney and retired professor at Vanderbilt and Princeton, agreed.

She said BLM is a puppet whose strings are being opportunistically manipulated by the Democratic Party in its bid to secure unfettered political power.

“It’s part of the cultural Marxist agenda against America,” Swain told Fox News host Mark Levin in June.

“[Democrats] are using black people to advance a radical agenda that will be destructive to our nation, that will hurt all of us. And it’s hurting us right now.”

Levin, an attorney, pointed out that Democrats are howling about “systemic racism” when they have been running America’s big cities for the past 50 years. In other words, the “system” the leftists are protesting against is actually themselves.

Tellingly, all the cities that were torched during this summer’s BLM race riots have been run by Democrats for decades: New York, Atlanta, Minneapolis and Washington.

Why didn’t the left protest “systemic racism” when the U.S. had a black president in the White House for eight years?

Swain said Democrats shrewdly weaponized race to attack President Donald Trump and to silence his supporters.

So if you dare to criticize BLM or the left-wing agenda, liberals will just cavalierly defame you as a racist — even if you’re not white.

Levin said if we’re going to purge society of all vestiges of slavery, segregation and racism, why don’t we just purge the Democratic Party?

“Was it not the Democrat Party that led the Confederacy?” he asked. “Was it not the Democrat Party that gave birth to the Klan? Was it not the Democrat Party that throughout 100 years after the Civil War led the effort on segregation and Jim Crow and poll taxes and literacy tests?”

Swain chimed in.

“The Democrats also fought against the anti-lynching laws,” she said. “[Since the 1960s] the Democrats have been manipulating black people for a long time. And they pay off the leaders. … Nothing good trickles down to the masses.

“The Democratic Party has stood in the way of black progress. It’s standing in the way right now.”
