Watch: Black Lives Matter shouts ‘Burn it Down’ during march in Washington D.C.

Share:

WASHINGTON D.C.- Many on the left believed that the rioting and unrest taking place across the country was the fault of President Trump, because you know, he is a “racist”.

They also believed that if President-Elect, Joe Biden were to become the President, everything would cease and go back to normal. 

To be blunt, anyone who honestly thought that was just being naïve.

Anyone who actually wanted to come to terms with reality could see that the riots have absolutely nothing to do with who holds the office of President of the United States, but rather, it is just an excuse to loot, assault, destroy, and destruct, all without any repercussions. 

Take this man for example, who brought a hand truck with him to the riot in Philadelphia. I am pretty sure someone who brings a hand truck with them, has premeditated intentions on stealing large items.

So tell me again, what on earth that has to do with who the President is. 

Further proof that Joe Biden winning the election was irrelevant, late Saturday night, November 7th, a group of rioters, posing as peaceful protesters, broke away from the pack, and began marching towards the Black Lives Matter Plaza in Washington D.C., shouting “Burn it down.”

Congruent with most other riots taking place across the country, the individuals were dressed in all black, and were armed with umbrellas, to provide protection from video surveillance and police officers’ dispersal tactics.  

Journalist Henry Rodgers took to Twitter to report the situation. He tweeted:

“Separate group has broken off screaming ‘burn it down’… Dressed in all black. Marching downtown DC. A lot of umbrellas as usual with no rain in forecast:”

The group began with the common chant of “What do we want? Justice” “When do we want it? Now”, which was followed by “And if we don’t get it? Burn it down!”

Breitbart reported that another journalist, Madison Muller, tweeted a video of BLM protesters chanting, “All cops are bastards” as they approached Black Lives Matter Plaza.

 

The new maneuver among these extremists groups seems to be to act like a peaceful protester, and then break away from the pack to begin the usual rioting destruction.

A similar situation took place in New York last week, which resulted in 57 arrests, and a woman spitting in the face of a police officer.

NEW YORK CITY, NY – A violent night on the streets of New York City came to a head when police say a subset of protesters attacked officers, which ended in more than 50 arrests on Wednesday, November 4th. 

In a Facebook video streamed Thursday, New York Police Department Commissioner Dermot Shea described hours of chaos, after some protesters showed up armed with flammable materials, hammers and tasers. 

The department Twitter account posted some of the arrestees’ mugshots, saying: 

“Last night, these individuals were arrested at protests in Manhattan for various crimes, including assaulting police officers & weapons possession. If you have any info related to these individuals, or others regarding violence at protests, please call @NYPDTips at 800-577-TIPS.” 

The city’s top cop said the smaller group had no ties to a peaceful protest that had occurred earlier in the day.  

Commissioner Shea said rioters used that gathering as a cover to come to the area, before separating themselves to start fighting with the officers who were in charge of protecting and serving the area.

He said: 

“I would say the intent was evident. It’s to sow chaos. Who brings a knife and a hammer and flammable liquids to a peaceful protest?” 

He went on to say that officers arrested 57 people in total, including a woman who was captured on camera calling an officer a “fascist” before spitting in his face. 

New York Post journalist Elizabeth Meryl Rosner tweeted video of the incident, saying: 

“A young woman was arrested after she spat in an officer’s face after screaming, ‘F–k you, fascist,’ tonight in the West Village.”  

NYPD officers say of those arrested, 32 were given criminal court summonses. Most of the others were arrested for disorderly conduct. 

The whole scramble shows the “evolution” of protester tactics, according to NYPD Deputy Commissioner John Miller. 

He said not only did the rioters come armed, but had planned who among them would set fires, throw things at cops, and record video that could later be used as propaganda. 

The NYPD News Twitter account shared pictures of some of the weapons seized during the protest.

The post said: 

“These weapons, confiscated at protests tonight, put others at risk. Bringing weapons to peaceful protests cannot and will not be tolerated. We are currently working to de-escalate the situation. Anyone caught with a weapon will be arrested.” 

The photos show knives, what appears to be a taser, and fireworks or explosives. 

On top of the planned attacks, Miller said they also developed a plan for provoking officers and then filming only whatever followed so that it would appear on camera that the officers reacted for no reason.

He said: 

“A number of people emerge and try to pull the person that is the subject of the arrest back into the crowd and end up physically struggling with police.” 

Miller said the plan was to then post video online that makes it look like cops are attacking protesters. 

In a series of tweets that followed Thursday’s news conference, NYPD News posted: 

“We support everyone’s right to self-expression, but setting fires puts others at risk and will not be tolerated. We are working to de-escalate the situation near Morton Street in the West Village to prevent further damage from occurring.” 

Another tweet reads: 

“We appreciate and value the importance of freedom of speech. Our top priority is and always will be safety. We have arrested more than 20 individuals who attempted to hijack a peaceful protest by lighting fires, throwing garbage and eggs in Manhattan.”
