It’s violence and intimidation in Washington D.C. … a sinister extremist riot encouraged by the political leadership.
Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioters marched through Washington, D.C., on the evening of Feb. 6 threatening to burn down the city and intimidating people while they tried to go about their lives and eat dinner, according to the Washington Examiner.
Because it was Washington D.C., it could even be called an insurrection.
“Burn it down,” the crowd of extremists could be heard shouting as they marched through D.C. on the heels of an afternoon rally called the “DC Queer and Trans Black History Month March and Rally.”
The group also had some less catchy chants, like “We are here tonight because black lives matter,” and “Despite black lives mattering, black people are still dying at the hands of the police paid for by our tax dollars.”
Antifa members could at one point be seen fighting with Washington police, exactly like hundreds of thousands of Jan.-6 Trump-supporters didn’t, as officers attempted to protect people eating outdoors at restaurants.
One video from the incident showed protesters pointing bright lights at police while verbally abusing them.
The menacing march occurred despite roughly 26,000 National Guard troops having been sent to Washington to provide security after the Jan. 6 demonstration on Capitol Hill. At least 5,000 are reported to be staying through March.
Washington police said no arrests were made on Saturday night despite the violence with police and threat to unarmed bystanders.
