According to RWN, yesterday around two dozen protesters showed up for a “Unite the Right” rally in Washington, D.C.
But as Lifezette reported that the group was vastly outnumbered by counter-protesters who had been gathering in the nation’s capital during the day. The organizer, Jason Kessler and his band of supporters, were greeted with shouts of “Go home!” and “You’re not welcome here!” as they left the metro station.
Police officers ended up needing to escort the group as they began making their way east toward Lafayette Square Park, where a crowd of counterprotesters chanted, “Nazis go home!” and “Shame! Shame! Shame!” The self-professed anti-racist protesters had been gathering as part of a series of counter-protests planned in Washington. That group was being led by members of 40 anti-racism groups.
In footage taken by Breitbart News, Black Lives Matter activists can be seen attacking cars and threatening drivers who were attempting to drive down the streets of Washington, D.C.
“Back up! Back the f*ck up!” a group of Black Lives Matter activists shouted at a driver. “Go back that way n*gg*r!” Get your ass back!”
The car eventually began backing up due to the threats. It was then followed by another driver who faced more violence.
These cars had NOTHING to do with the protest. In fact, they were just likely the unlucky residence trying 5to go home or to work. So, does that mean the real motive behind these violent protesters is just to cause upset and fear? It sure seems like it.
Another example of their undefined motives would be the protest of the officer’s weddings. The Washington Times covered it over the weekend:
Black Lives Matter protesters on Saturday crashed the wedding venue of one of the two police officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark in Sacramento earlier this year.
A small group of protesters tracked down the officer’s wedding at a vineyard about an hour outside of Sacramento and showed up just hours before he was set to say, “I do,” a local CBS affiliate reported.
Video posted on Facebook by Sacramento Black Lives Matter showed the protesters accosting the officer, who police have not identified due to safety concerns, while he was gathered in a room with his groomsmen.
“I just wonder if you started planning your wedding before you killed Stephon Clark or after?” a white female protester asked the officer, who is black, in the video. “How have you been sleeping since March 18?”
“You’re a murderer!” another protester yelled as they were quickly ushered out of the room by the officer’s wedding party.
Organizers of the protest said they didn’t think it was inappropriate to confront the officer in that setting.
