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..
