It was rainy today, so I didn’t bring my (famous) signs. Instead, I came to stand with my friends one last time before my upcoming vacation.
But soon after our arrival, trouble came our way:
My bodycam wasn’t on the correct setting, but what happened after this is I tried to make my way to the lone woman flag-holder to see that she was alright. But they blocked my way, getting in my face and threatening me. After a few a few minutes of scuffling, I told them I simply wanted to escort her out of there and to safety. After that, they let me pass.
As soon as I got to her, one of the commies grabbed her flag. I was only able to save the staff. At that point, an older black woman with a bullhorn came up and told the mob to refrain from assaulting the lady, and that we have the right to rally just as they do. While I appreciated this gesture, I don’t think it was sincere, and it was definitely too little and too late. After all, the entire purpose of their being there was to drive us away – and to DEPRIVE us of our First Amendment rights. Another BLMer, a younger black man, helped escort us to her truck, which was parked right there. He asked the mob to refrain from damaging the truck, and had the vehicles, which were blocking the street, allow us to pass unmolested.
As stated, I’m leaving on vacation soon, so there might not be any new posts for a while.
