Black Lives Matter Protesters Harass D.C. Diners at Mexican Restaurant, Demand They Raise Fists

Black Lives Matter protesters in Washington, DC, on Monday harassed diners seated on the patio of a Mexican restaurant and allegedly demanded they raise their fists, according to videos posted on social media. A video showed one black female protester who entered the patio space of Mezcalero Cocina Mexicana on 14th Street NW and confronted a young white couple. A video posted by RawsMedia on Twitter captioned: “Protesters says people who don’t raise there fist is a white supremacist.” The protester can be heard screaming at the couple, “Is that why you don’t want to do it?” Two other diners are seen with their fists raised. Cowbells and shouting can also be heard, as the crowd heckled the couple. One protester yelled, “White supremacy!” at the couple. A staff member at the restaurant confirmed on Tuesday that about 200 protesters came to their restaurant on 14th Street the day before. The incident was a part of a protest in D.C. in support of Jacob Blake, a black man in Wisconsin who scuffled with police before he was seen reaching into his car and then fired upon by police. He is reportedly in stable condition. The shooting, however, has fueled already ongoing protests around the country by BLM and other associated groups. Protesters in recent weeks have been increasingly targeting restaurant-goers, who now with COVID-19 restrictions, are sitting on patios accessible from the sidewalk. Over the weekend, BLM protesters targeted Washington diners in other parts of Northwest DC, with one case leading to a physical confrontation. Metropolitan police arrived shortly after the confrontation, and followed the protesters as they moved on to other restaurants. Protesters also targeted diners in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the Republican National Convention is being held this week.

What a bunch of uncivil losers and thugs..  To see the video of this, click on the text above.   These diners had every right to a peaceful dinner that they paid for.  Just imagine if this had happened to you.  They should have called their waiter or owner of the restaurant and asked them to intervene.  And, if they didn’t, they should have called the police and filed charges against these losers…and asked for a refund for the dinner from the restaurant.  Hopefully the police there have seen this video and are taking action.  God forbid this sorta things happens to you, stand up and don’t take this crap.  We all need to push back against this mob mentality and not just take it.  We shouldn’t have to be assaulted each time there is some (usually perfectly justified) police shooting some place, and BLM, Antifa, and other domestic terrorists use it as an excuse to attack everyone else.  Oh, and shame on those gutless other patrons who raised their fists just so they wouldn’t get yelled at by that obnoxious female and her mob.  I’m so over this crap..

At RNC, St. Louis Couple Rips Democrats: No One in Mob Charged — Just us

Patricia and Mark McCloskey, the St. Louis couple menaced at their home by a massive mob of trespassing Black Lives Matter protesters, issued a stark warning at Monday night’s Republican National Convention about what life under Democrat rule look like if Joe Biden becomes president. Here is a partial transcript: PATRICIA MCCLOSKEY: What you saw happen to us could just as easily happen to any of you who are watching from quiet neighborhoods around our country, and that’s what we want to speak to you about tonight. MARK MCCLOSKEY: Whether it’s defunding the police, ending cash bail so criminals can be released back out on the streets the same day to riot again, or encouraging anarchy on our streets, it seems as if Democrats no longer view the government’s job as protecting honest citizens from criminals, but rather protecting criminals from honest citizens. Not a single person in the out-of-control mob you saw at our house was charged with a crime. But you know who was? We were. They’ve actually charged us with a felony for daring to defend our home. On top of that, consider this: The liberal activist leading a mob to our neighborhood stood outside of our home with a bullhorn screaming, “You can’t stop the revolution!” Just weeks later, that same activist won the Democrat nomination to hold a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The radicals are not content just marching in the streets. They want to walk the halls of Congress. They want power. This is Joe Biden’s party. These are the people who will be in charge. Patricia then warns about the changes Biden has promised to make that will destroy peaceful and safe suburbs: PATRICIA MCCLOSKEY: They’re not satisfied with spreading the chaos and violence in our communities. They want to abolish the suburbs all-together by ending single-family home zoning. This forced rezoning would bring crime, lawlessness and low-quality apartments into thriving suburban neighborhoods. President Trump smartly ended this government overreach, but Joe Biden wants to bring it back. The couple became somewhat famous in late June when video was released on social media of them standing in front of their house holding firearms. Patricia held a handgun. Mark held a semi-automatic rifle. While the mob of about a hundred taunted and threatened them with murder and rape, the couple warned the hostile group they were trespassing — which they were. Worse still, the mob broke down a security gate to gain access to the private road in front of the McCloskey’s Renaissance palazzo-style residence, a place of pride for the two attorneys, who spent years and untold amounts of money restoring and renovating it. Outnumbered 50-to-1, the McCloskeys had every right in the world to be out there brandishing guns. At the time, the left-wing terrorists in Antifa and Black Lives Matter were ravaging countless cities. Riots, assaults, arson, looting, and mayhem was widespread. It still is. “[W]hen I saw that mob coming through the gate with their rage and their anger, I thought that we would be overrun in a second,” Mark told the Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson just days after the incident. “By the time I was out there with my rifle, the people were 20 or 30 feet from my front wall. I’ve got a low wall that separates my house from my front yard. And so, I was literally afraid that within seconds they would surmount the wall, and come into the house, kill us, burn the house down and everything that I had worked for and struggled for for the last 32 years.” “I saw it all going up in flames, and my life destroyed in an instant,” he added. “And I did what I thought I had to do to protect my hearth, my home and my family.” McCloskey was invited to appear on CNNLOL just so he could be smeared as a racist. But that was only the beginning of the persecution faced by the McCloskeys, a very public persecution deliberately designed to intimidate all Americans. The McCloskeys were made examples of by the left in the hopes we would all be afraid to defend our homes and families from these demonic marauders, these socialist revolutionaries who are nothing less than the Democrats’ and the media’s own personal Brownshirts. Although the mob had trespassed and vandalized, had essentially broken and entered, and many of their faces were caught and broadcast on social media, St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner, a Democrat, did not charge a single one them with anything. Instead, with the corporate media and the organized left cheering her on, she went after the McCloskeys. Gardner received and executed a search warrant of their home, which reportedly resulted in the confiscation of the firearms necessary to protect themselves should the mob return — which it did after Democrats and CNN painted a target on their backs. And then Gardner charged the couple with “felony unlawful use of a weapon.” “It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner — that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis,” Gardner said in a statement. Apparently it is not illegal in St. Louis — or in any Democrat-run city — to break down doors and threaten people on their own property. The state attorney general, a Republican, stepped in and had the obscene, unlawful, politically-motivated charges dismissed. Click here to watch the McCloskeys speech:

 

Barr: ‘Black Lives Matter’ and That Includes Crime Victims

During an interview with ABC News released on Wednesday, Attorney General William Barr stated that he agrees with the sentiment that black lives matter and that sentiment applies to people who are victims of homicides, and black lives also matter “in the sense of ensuring that African Americans fully participate in the benefits of this society and their lives flourish.” Barr said he distinguishes between the Black Lives Matter organization, which he disagrees with, and the sentiment that black lives matter. He continued, “Obviously, black lives matter. I think all lives, all human life is sacred. I also think that it’s being used now — is sort of distorting the debate to some extent. Because it’s used really to refer exclusively to black lives that are lost to police misconduct, which have been going down, statistically. Five years ago, there were 40 such incidents, this last year it was ten. So, at least it’s a positive trajectory there, but then you compare it to 8,000 homicides in the African American community. Those are black lives that matter, too.” Barr also stated, “It’s also black lives matter, in the sense of ensuring that African Americans fully participate in the benefits of this society and their lives flourish.”

Opinion/Analysis: Democrats exploit cities — They’ve ruled for decades but guess who they blame for problems?

There are many tragic ironies unfolding since even before the death of George Floyd. As we see sincere people demonstrating for change in this country regarding how people of color are treated within policing and the justice system, Democrats and left-wing leadership see this righteous activism as an opportunity to reinforce the status quo. I say this as a former community organizer for the left a great deal of my adult life. Whenever there was an issue on which people could be “organized” the goal was always to increase that rage and concern in order to access as many people as possible. For the Democrats, marches based on outrage and people gathering to protest are the most effective means with which to gather names and to expand political influence. The horrible irony is the passion of these well-meaning citizens is being exploited by the Democrats and their “social justice” handmaidens to actually maintain the political status quo. In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death, millions and millions of corporate dollars are pouring into the Democratic and left-wing establishment “social justice” organizations. Once again, the good intention is to help spur “change” in the inner city and for people of color in this country after watching, for decades, nothing improve for people in cities like Chicago, Minneapolis, New York, Baltimore and Detroit. Voter registration efforts are a focus of the Black Lives Matter organization, the NAACP, and other Democratic-allied organizations. The message seems to be that the more you vote if you are a person of color in an urban area, the more your voice will be heard and the better your life will become. But how has that been working out? Is the suffering endured by people living in cities run by Democrats somehow going to change by voting in more of the same? The arterial message with Democratic crisis voter registration is that it is Republicans who are evil and at fault. All of this is Donald Trump’s fault, and voting in more Democrats like Joe Biden, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Keith Ellison is going to, somehow, improve everyone’s lot in life. But that, of course, is a lie. The cities suffering with the most economic and social injustice are cities that have been controlled by the Democratic establishment for years, and in most cases, for decades. Chicago has been controlled by Democratic mayors for 89 years. Detroit for 58 years. Baltimore for 53 years. Washington, D.C., for 53 years. Minneapolis, with George Floyd’s killing the spark of the latest demand for change, has been controlled by Democrats for 42 years. Los Angeles for 19 years. And New York, in the latest round of disastrous governance, has suffered under Bill de Blasio for six years. The messaging from both the Democrats and the media is that Donald Trump, the guy who’s been in office for three years, is the source of all the injustice — or so say the people in charge for half a century or longer. It’s not surprising that those responsible for the continuing decline of America’s great urban areas would like their constituents to look elsewhere to blame. The attempt to deflect and accuse others for the continuing decline of urban America has been generally successful. After all, why else would cities like Chicago and Minneapolis and Baltimore keep voting in their tormentors? One tactic is to promote extremes accusing others for the disasters, issuing slogans like “Defund the Police” so real policy solutions won’t be discussed. The emotional reaction also keeps local constituencies from looking at their local failed and culpable leadership that is directly responsible for the untenable situation. This circus is made possible in large part because Democrats are very good at deflection, theater and stunts, and their compliant media loves covering it. Mayor Muriel Bowser of Washington, D.C., a city facing many economic and social problems, and led by Democratic mayors for over half a century, decided to paint a massive “Black Lives Matter” banner on the street leading to the White House. When it comes to stunts, that’s a good one. It is the ultimate in what I term “Patronizing Mayhem,” where politicians give the impression of acting on a problem with one hand while maintaining the pain with the other. Many community activists are beginning to recognize and admit that, despite (or because) of decades of Democratic leadership and involvement of so-called social justice organizations, the lives of people of color have not gotten better in the inner city. And even some of the deflected blame may not be the core of the problem. According to The Washington Post, there were 15 fatal shootings of unarmed black men by police in 2019. Even one is too many, but the messaging has been that the police are responsible for a “genocide” of African-Americans in this country. There has been massive suffering and death in the black communities in this country, that is true. But the question remains, why? The Chicago Sun-Times reported the grim news of what that great American city still endures. “From 7 p.m. Friday, May 29, through 11 p.m. Sunday, May 31, 25 people were killed in the city, with another 85 wounded by gunfire …” The newspaper tells us this was the most violent day in 60 years in that city, and it wasn’t due to police shootings. “‘If immediate action isn’t taken to address systemic racism, poverty and ‘black folks being shot down and killed out here like dogs,’ [Rev. Michael] Pfleger said the last weekend in May will merely serve as a ‘coming attraction of what’s going to happen next.’” Is it finally becoming undeniable that if Chicagoans want to genuinely address the systemic problems of their city, they will have to look directly at the Democratic leadership they have relied upon for 83 years — the same Democratic leadership at the city and state level controlling the social policies destroying lives. For those living in the inner city, the corporations that are sending millions to groups like the ACLU, Black Lives Matter and the NAACP, among others, are doing so with the intent to improve peoples’ lives. The past, however, indicates they are instead funding efforts invested in the political status quo keeping people trapped in cities where generations of lives have been lost to self-obsessed politicians and a political party that sees the suffering of people as a political necessity.

Exactly!  And, well said, Tammy.  Tammy Bruce is the author of that outstanding piece.  Tammy is president of Independent Women’s Voice, is a radio talk-show host, and a New York Times best-selling author.  Excellent!     🙂

Opinion/Analysis: When Will we Dynamite the Statues of Slave-Owning Roman Emperors?

Speaker of the House of Commons Jacob Rees-Mogg has proposed the flattening of Stonehenge because of its ugly associations with human sacrifice. He was responding to a proposal by his Conservative MP colleague Sir Desmond Swayne that all traces of the Roman occupation of Britain should be erased. They were both joking but underneath was a very serious point about the utter hypocrisy of Black Lives Matters’ war on statuary: how much time needs to elapse before a historical crime is considered expiated? Should the Italian government be paying Britain reparations for the indignities its legions and slave-keeping elite inflicted on our people from 55BC to 388AD? Should the Egyptian government finally tear down those crumbling, pyramid-shaped eyesores — currently blocking potential space for affordable housing in the Cairo suburb of Giza — which were notoriously the product of slave labor? And if we’re talking the evils of slavery, what about the compensation the descendants of the Barbary pirates must owe for all the innocent Europeans they captured and used either as galley slaves or incorporated into their harems? Or does Barbary piracy not count because it involved North Africans enslaving white people who, being privileged, are legitimate targets? All these questions are purely rhetorical, of course. We know what the answers are because Black Lives Matter has made it perfectly clear: slavery was only bad between roughly the 15th and 19th centuries, and when it was white people who were doing it to black people, mostly. There’s no discussion to be had when Muslims do it (as in parts of the world they continue to in the 21st century). There’s no discussion to be had when Travellers do it (ditto). There’s no discussion to be had when black people do it to other black people (as happened, of course, in the Ashanti Kingdom which owed much of its wealth to the people it captured from the African interior, brought in chains to ports like Elmina on the coast of what is now Ghana, to be shipped across the Atlantic by whites.) Slavery is only bad when Black Lives Matter says it is bad.

Exactly!  And, that’s the con/scam of it all.  Just a bunch of self-serving lies by a black racist, domestic terrorist organization we’re all supposed to bend over and grab our ankles for.  Screw that!  Thanks to James Delingpole for that outstanding piece.  🙂

Georgia state trooper tells protesters in viral video: ‘I only kneel for … God’

A law enforcement officer in Georgia is going viral after he said he “has much respect” for Black Lives Matter protesters after the death of George Floyd — but he only kneels “for one person.” Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler was allegedly asked to kneel during a demonstration in Hartwell while a bystander was recording. “If I didn’t have any respect, I wouldn’t [be here],” Saddler explained. “I was supposed to be out of town this weekend with my wife. I took off today, this weekend, but I’m out here to make sure y’all are safe.” He added, “Don’t go there with respect, OK? I have much respect, but I only kneel for one person.” Someone in the crowd replied: “And that’s God,” which the trooper confirmed: “God.” “God Bless him!” Ryan Fournier, founder and co-chairman of Students for Trump, wrote in a tweet. Others praised him in the original post as “one of the best in the business.” The state trooper’s comments come as many police officers have been urged to take a knee in solidarity with protesters as some are pushing to “defund the police.”

Georgia State Trooper O’Neal Saddler is definitely a role model.  To see the video in question, click on the video.  Great job, Sergeant!      🙂

 

Black Lives Matter plans armed ‘peace officers’ in ‘war on police,’ NY leader says

The Black Lives Matter movement will develop an armed branch of “peace officers” to combat police brutality in black communities during the so-called “war on police,” according to one of its leaders. Protests broke out across the country following the death of unarmed Minneapolis black man George Floyd while in police custody, bringing the BLM movement back into national focus. In an interview with the Daily Mail, BLM New York chapter Chairman Hawk Newsome described how the group plans to follow in the footsteps of the Black Panthers Party by matching fire with fire – when necessary. “We’re talking about self-defense. We’re talking about defending our communities,” Newsome said. “You know what it’s like to see a taser pointed at a 7-year-old, you know what it’s like to see a 67-year-old black woman … pepper sprayed and pushed to the ground?” “We are preparing and training our people to defend our communities.” Newsome attended a national conference in Los Angeles of party leadership to discuss how the movement can create a “pathway forward” for people. The plan, called “Black Opts” for Black Opportunities, details how the movement can help to liberate black people. “We have black Special Forces officers advising us, and we will teach and train people in our communities, the Black Opts department of Black Opportunities,” Newsome said. The move is reminiscent of the Black Panthers Party, which created “peace officers” who open-carried firearms while patrolling black communities in order to deter police brutality. Newsome confirmed that the BLM “peace officers” would also be armed and open carry guns in states that allow it. “We pattern ourselves after the Black Panthers, after the Nation of Islam, we believe that we need an arm to defend ourselves,” Newsome explained. “We will build and train peace officers to keep the peace in our communities, to defend our communities, to keep our communities safe.” The New York chapter is at the forefront of the movement, the largest of the 40 chapters the organization operates globally, according to its website. Newsome, who worked as a project manager at a law firm before becoming full-time activist, claimed his chapter has grown into one of the most effective ones in the world. Newsome says his chapter is raising funds for a “war chest” and plans to build a headquarters in an unused church in New York. “When we start talking about black opportunities and building our war chest to defend ourselves from the war on the poor. .. to defend ourselves against the war that is anti-blackness in America, then people will have to meet a certain criteria.” The “blueprint” for the way forward will be unveiled in Times Square in New York on Sunday at 12 p.m. and delivered to communities across the country.

Here at The Daily Buzz, we have for years been saying that BLM is just another black racist, socialist, domestic terrorist organization.  Well, now the gig is up.  They are openly admitting as much!  Mr. Newsome freely admits that BLM will train a group of its members to fight a “war with police.”  If that isn’t the very definition of domestic terrorism, I don’t know what is.  He also says he wants to pattern his so-called “peace officers” after the Nation of Islam and the New Black Panther Party.  Both of those organizations are black racist, socialist/communist, militant, anti-Semitic, domestic terrorist organizations by every definition.  Even the very liberal/left-leaning Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has listed them as “hate” groups right there with neo-Nazis and others.  BLM is finally coming out of the closet and saying they’re joining their Nation of Islam and New Black Panther Party bros in their “struggle.”  Great…

Watch – ‘Black Lives Matter Is a Joke’: Black D.C. Resident Tells Far-Left Group ‘Go to Chicago’

A D.C. resident confronted Black Lives Matter (BLM) protesters at a demonstration over the death of George Floyd in Washington, DC, on Sunday, calling them “hypocrites.” “Black Lives Matter is a joke. You are the racists,” said Nestride Yumga, an American citizen originally from Africa. “Go to Chicago. They don’t have schools, and they die every day. They don’t matter [to you] because you can’t get attention from that,” she told protesters. One woman told Yumga to “shut up” and said no one wanted to hear what she had to say. However, Yumga kept speaking to the crowd. She continued: Group of hypocrites! Go to Southeast D.C., Northeast D.C. Tell them black lives matter! If it matters, it should matter everywhere. You guys are hypocrites, attention seekers. Black lives should matter everywhere. It doesn’t take a white cop to kill a black person [for their life] to matter. … When black people kill black people, they don’t come out and do this crap. “I’m proud of my country, and I don’t want my country to be portrayed like this,” Yumga told Breitbart News, adding that Floyd’s death should not be an opportunity for groups to make people feel like victims. “No one is a victim here. The only victim here is George Floyd.”

Exactly!!   Well said, Nestride!!!  Wow!!  Absolutely epic!!  Please take 5 mins, and click on the text above to watch this AWESOME video.  It’s worth it!  Then, pass it along to friends and family members…especially those who are Democrats, or who may support BLM.  Thanks Nestride!!  God bless you!   She needs to run for public office.  Outstanding!!       🙂

Black Lives Matter’s ‘BlackXmas’ only as non-racist as ‘WhiteXmas’

Black Lives Matter has started a campaign to get all the black people in America to boycott all the stores run by white people in America, and shop only those outlets owned and operated by black people. But don’t worry — that’s not racist. After all, the same people advocating for “BlackXmas” would be quite OK with a “WhiteXmas.” Right? Hmm. “We’re dreaming of a #BlackXmas,” tweeted #BlackLivesMatter-LA. @BLMA, as the Daily Caller noted. So what’s that mean? Well, the tweet goes on and explains: “…where folks withhold dollars from White capitalism and use resources to #BuildBlackCommunity. Instead of spending, DONATE to a Black organization as a holiday gift for your loved ones or #BuyBlack. Go to BlackXmas.org for more.” Honestly, the proper American reaction to this ought to be a shoulder shrug. It’s good to use one’s First Amendment right to protest — even when that protest takes a turn toward deciding where to spend money. After all, Americans are free to spend how they want, free to exercise their personal purchasing powers as they see fit, free to determine whether or not to buy something — oh, wait, except for Obamacare, of course. But for Christmas shopping? Well, that’s all personal choice, all individual determination. So it’s quite fitting that Black Lives Matter might want its members and supporters to put a little money where their mouths are, and stay far away from businesses they believe are counter to their messages and principles. That’s the American way; that’s the capitalistic approach; that’s the constitutional-like manner of living. The problem comes into the picture when those of other races wouldn’t be as free to live that same freedom dream, absent criticism and cries of outrage. “This season, more than others, Black Lives Matter is asking people to wake up, to be conscious of our own economic power and to protest — not just in the streets — but in the malls,” wrote Melina Abdullah, a Black Lives Matter organizer, in a 2016 opinion piece for the Los Angeles Sentinel, the Daily Caller noted. “Black Lives Matter is dreaming of and building for a #BlackXMas, where we divest from White corporations and invest in building Black community. Rather than lining the pockets of Trump and other White-supremacist capitalists, donate to Black-led organizations that are building new, liberatory [sic] structures in our communities.” Well and good. First Amendment freedoms, and so forth and so on. But by the same token, so should be a #WhiteXmas. What’s good for a #BlackXmas gander is good for a #WhiteXmas goose. What’s racist or not racist for #BlackXmas is similarly racist or not racist for #WhiteXmas. And sadly, that’s where the breakdown occurs.

Indeed!!  And well said, Cheryl!  Cheryl K. Chumley is responsible for that spot-on op/ed.  Just fathom if a “White Lives Matter” organization (just fathom that notion alone!) tried to do the same thing, and advocated that white people divest of black businesses and support only white businesses, etc.  Wow..  The self-righteous, and brazenly hypocritical race hustlers (i.e. Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, the NAACP, etc. etc) would be having protests, marches and on and on..  They’d demand “justice!”  And, the dominantly liberal mainstream media (especially MSNBC, CNN, and their ilk) would be all over it like white on rice (oops!  is that racially-charged?)….for weeks on end, and we ALL know it.  The hypocrisy of BLM is truly breathtaking.  And, they’re probably too dumb to even get it..

Black Lives Matter, police-focused NFL protests overlook rising black-on-black homicides

Lost in the uproar over the NFL sideline protests against police brutality are newly released statistics showing that the threat to black men is skyrocketing — not from trigger-happy or racist cops, but from crime. More than any other demographic group, black men are paying the price with their lives with a surging violent crime rate over the past two years, including a 20 percent jump in the overall homicide rate, even as the number of blacks killed by police declines. Using homicide figures from the 2016 FBI Uniform Crime Report released Sept. 25, Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald found that the number of black homicide victims has jumped by nearly 900 per year since the Black Lives Matter movement took root in 2014. “The majority of victims of that homicide surge have been black,” Ms. Mac Donald said in an email. “They were killed overwhelmingly by black criminals, not by the police and not by whites.” Meanwhile, the number of blacks killed by police dipped from 259 in 2015 to 233 in 2016, with 2017 so far coming in below both years with 175 deaths as of Oct. 12, according to The Washington Post’s Fatal Force database.

This troubling trend is something that the dominantly liberal mainstream media refuses to report on.  Typical…   To read the rest of this article, click on the text above.
