While examples of this behavior abound, members of the organization proved it again last week as they ‘stormed’ a Target retail outlet in Washington, D.C., and declared over a bullhorn they would ‘shut down’ the business.
The group was led by a male who read portions of a script as the rest of the group shouted back replies to him.
“All black people, living around this neighborhood, because you prioritize money over people, until you stop calling the police, we will continue to shut your business down.”
A larger group also infiltrated a nearby mini-mall and began shouting more slogans like, “Free the people.”
What’s interesting is how most members of the group appear to be white soy-boy types and white liberal female social justice warriors fighting for ‘black people’ — without many black people among them. (Related: We need a new CIVIL RIGHTS law to protect the modern-day oppressed: Conservatives, Christians and Whites.)
It’s also noteworthy to mention that Target continues to be a ‘target’ of these protests after the company’s virtue-signaling decision a few years ago to ‘gender-neutral’ bathrooms and allow trans individuals to use restrooms that do not correspond to their biological composition.
Funny how it's always a Target.
I bet there's no connection there, at all.

In any event, Drew Hernandez, host of the “Lives Matter” podcast who posted video of the demonstrations, wondered why there was no police presence.
“I really would like to know why DC Police allowed BLM to trespass into a DC Target to make threats tonight with customers still inside,” he wrote on Twitter.
He added an apt comparison in another tweet.
“Black Lives Matter literally threatened @Target today in DC. Apparently if that @Target in DC ever calls the cops on a black person ever again BLM will shut them down,” he wrote. “ Sounds a lot like what Hawk Newsome said on Fox the other night about ‘burning down the system.’ Radicals.”
Hernandez went on to note that as he covered the BLM protests over the past weekend, Instagram was systematically deleting many of his followers.
“Ever since I started covering BLM DC protests this weekend @instagram has been deleting hundreds of my followers,” he wrote. “There also is some algorithm on my account where some people attempting to follow me get unfollowed 15 seconds after the follow. View count is down as well.”
The male with the bullhorn and another group of people pulled a similar political stunt the evening of June 25 at a restaurant in D.C.
“We are here tonight while you are dining because black people are dying at the hands of the police. So, while you are dining, we are sorry for your inconvenience, but black people are dying today. While you are dining, we’re going to read you some facts about the murder of black people. We are here tonight because black lives matter. We are here tonight because black trans lives matter,” he said.
Understand that words will only go so far; it’s the violent undertone behind the words that Americans should really understand.
Revolutions begin in such ways — political processes followed by protests that eventually grow, become more volatile, then outright violent.
Our country is already engulfed in low-level conflict. The conditions are ripe for the conflict to turn kinetic.
If some anarchists can get away with building an ‘autonomous zone’ in one city, they will try it in another, and another, and another, until there is complete chaos and lawlessness.
When you think about it, that’s exactly how America was founded. The difference is, our founders were fighting for freedom and the opportunity to build a country; today’s BLM leftists want to enslave people who disagree and tear America apart.
