You remember them, the nearly all-white crowd of millennial layabouts screaming in people’s faces to get them to raise their fists. Remember?
We were supposed to be impressed and intimidated. The whole “silence is consent” malarkey made into a demand and threat: comply or face our mob wrath.
And we know, from other big cities, that wrath can be vicious, including wrecking your truck and beating you nearly to death. (Gosh wonder why citizens want to be armed?)
But with these yahoos the intimidation part was kind of hard to buy into. They just seemed like idiots.
Turns out the Mayor agrees.
Mayor Muriel Bowser (D) condemned the behavior seen in the videos and instructed people to call the cops if they are being harassed by abusive protesters.
“What I saw in those videos was highly inappropriate, it was likely against the law if they were on private property but more importantly, I don’t think it had anything to do with demands for social justice,” Bowser said Wednesday, according to Washington Post reporter Fenit Nirappil.
She also said that “We would encourage any diner or restaurant to call the police immediately.”
You gotta love the fact that pretty much everyone is getting fed up with these goons.
