A mob of Black Lives Matter activists took to the streets of Washington, D.C. Saturday night to yell at police and harass outdoor diners while chanting insurrectionist slogans such as “if we don’t get it, burn it down.” Like most similar incidents involving Black lives Matter, the corporate media took zero interest in covering the march and accompanying threats of violence.
The gathering of Black Lives Matter and Antifa agitators was dubbed the “FTP March,” a reference to “F**k The police.”
The mob tramped through multiple streets, shining flashlights in the windows of residents and local businesses.
Unlike recent pro-Trump protests where multiple protesters were attacked and shot by law enforcement, D.C. police appeared to show little interest in controlling or halting the march.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa agitators were allowed to shout critical race theory propaganda at outdoor diner while bicycle-mounted police stood by and looked on in silence.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa agitators repeatedly screamed “If we don’t get it, burn it down!” at various points during the march.
The marchers shouted pro-insurrection slogans just days after MSNBC host Nicole Wallace fantasized about the U.S. government “going after and killing” conservative election integrity and anti-lockdown protesters with a drone strike, drawing parallels to targeted assassinations of Muslims under the Obama administration:
MSNBC anchor Nicole Wallace made some strange comments Friday while discussing her distaste for anti-election fraud and anti-lockdown protests, talking about “attacking terrorism at its root” and “going after and killing” American citizens with “a drone strike” for the “crime of inciting violence.” Wallace continued, “But my question for you is around incitement. Um, we had a policy, and it was very controversial, it was carried out under the Bush years and under the Obama years, of attacking terrorism at its root. Of going after and killing, and in the case of Anwar al-Awlaki an American, a Yemeni-American, with a drone strike for the crime of inciting violence, inciting terrorism.” “Mitch McConnell was in the Senate then, he was in the Senate after 9-11 too, how does Mitch McConnell, who understands that the way you root out terrorism is to take on – in the case of Islamic terrorism, kill – those who incite it, how does he does not vote to convict someone that he said, on the floor of the Senate, incited an insurrection,” Wallace concluded.
Saturday night’s Black Lives Matter gathering far more accurately met the definition of “insurrection” and “inciting violence,” than working-class election integrity protests, but received no coverage from the corporate media.
