Public support for the increasingly militant Black Lives Matter movement has steadily dropped since the summer. However, for all the holdouts who still think the movement won’t come to terrorize your neighborhood, look no further than a report last week in the New York Times.
The paper covered the escalating hostility of BLM mobs across the country. From the story:
In Rochester, N.Y., protesters have confronted people at outdoor restaurants, shaking dinner tables. Marchers in Washington also accosted people eating outside, urging everyone to raise their fists to show their allegiance to the movement.
The story went on to quote Jessie Burke of Portland saying, “Everyone was looking for solutions at first, but now it’s just a nightly fight that has gotten progressively more violent — and every neighborhood worries that the fight will come to their neighborhood.”
People are worried because they are seeing their once-peaceful lives upended by rioters screaming in their faces, and threatening to overrun their neighborhoods.
Understand that no one is safe.
Ask the McCloskeys, a married couple in St. Louis who watched one of the mobs bust through the gate of their private community, just as it was made clear that “defund the police” had become a serious slogan within the movement.
There really is something to be afraid of here, because it’s spreading everywhere. Don’t take it from me. Take it from the New York Times.
