The following article, Dem Mayor Who Took Knee With BLM Has Home Vandalized By BLM, Calls It ‘Domestic Terrorism’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Democrat Mayor Cheryl Selby said, “I’m really trying to process this. It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair,” in response to her home being vandalized by peaceful protesters.
The best part is that she’s on their side.
From The Olympian:
On Friday night, two groups converged in downtown Olympia, and some became destructive, burning flags, smashing windows, and spray painting businesses and Olympia Mayor Cheryl Selby’s home.
One group was made up of about 50 black-clad protesters who came to Sylvester Park for a rally advertised on social media as an event akin to last Friday’s protest downtown with an open mic. The other group of around 30 wore neon-yellow T-shirts with the word “peacekeeper” emblazoned on the front and back, some holding paintball guns.
The black-clad group eventually marched up Capitol Way and into the South Capitol neighborhood to Olympia Mayor Cheryl Selby’s house. There, the group chanted “abolish the police,” and a person spray painted her front porch and door with “BLM.” A man with a flat, metal paddle-like object who was backed up by a line of cars told the group to leave, threatening them if they didn’t.
Selby and her family were not home last night, but her neighbors began texting her when the protesters arrived at her house.
Here’s the mayor taking a knee…
Here’s some randomness, via Twitter…
Why do people say this idiocy all the time? It’s a protest that takes place during a time to honor our nation and it takes place at that time specifically because it’s meant to dishonor the nation.
