BLM and Antifa march in DC, threaten to ‘burn down’ Washington

Black Lives Matter and Antifa protesters marched in the streets of Washington, D.C., where demonstrators scuffled with police officers and the crowd shouted threats to “burn down” the nation’s capital.

On Saturday night, members of BLM and Antifa protested in D.C., where they regularly chanted, “If we don’t get it, burn it down!”

Independent photojournalist Brendan Gutenschwager shared videos from the protest in D.C., where Antifa members waived an “Antifascist Action” flag as they marched.

The crowd yelled the popular Black Lives Matter phrase, “Whose streets? Our streets! Whose streets? Our streets!”

During the “FTP March” (an acronym for “F*** The Police”), the mob shouted the anti-police battle cry, “A.C.A.B. All cops are bastards!”

The demonstrators stopped near a row of restaurants, where protest leaders delivered lectures about “race, Black and Indigenous lives” to nearby diners.

At one point, things escalated after a black bloc protester shined a light into the face of a police officer, who then slapped away the flashlight. The black bloc member retaliated and smacked the police officer. The officer then pushed the crowd back by using his bicycle. The black bloc protester then slaps another cop. The officer thrusts his bike even more aggressively into the crowd dressed in all black. During the tense situation, a female in the crowd tells the officer to put his face mask on.

The BLM march ended with a speech honoring Eric Garner, according to Gutenschwager.

“We are here tonight because black lives matter,” the BLM crowd repeated after the main speaker. “Despite black lives mattering, black people are still dying at the hands of the police paid for by our tax dollars.”

The group recited the story of Eric Garner, a New York man who died while in police custody in 2014. During the story, the crowd called police officers the derogatory name of “pigs” on multiple occasions.

There were then several chants of “I can’t breathe!”

Washington, D.C., has been heavily guarded since the Capitol riots on Jan. 6. There were more than 26,000 National Guard troops in D.C. before President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

“There are currently about 7,000 National Guard members in the city providing security,” ABC News reported. “That number is expected to slowly go down to 5,000, and they are set to stay until about mid-March. The total cost for the deployment is expected to be close to $500 million.”

The U.S. Capitol building has been fortified with barricades and fencing, which many are calling for the structures to be removed.

    1. Yep. I don’t care what they WANT to call themselves, they are nothing but domestic terrorist organizations. We aren’t stupid.

    2. I’m an old Black veteran that has fought for the civil rights of Black Americans for many years. I do not Now support the BLM group in their pursuit of police officers reform and the conviction of cops that have committed the murder of black Americans. They have allowed the domestic terrorist Antifa to join and use BLM for their own objectives. The BLM leadership cannot display hostilty and riot behavior in their protests, and yet ask the city and state leaders to fix the problems. The BLM group MUST denounce and reject Antifa group from joining their protest marches. Malcolm X or MLK Jr would not support such horrible behavior of the BLM group if they were alive.

  1. Burn them down. Someone had the right idea to use drones and pepper spray not on lawful citizens but the blm and antifa crowds. Them when the smoke clears arrest the bastards and bitches.

  4. Why are they protesting at the homes of the black football players homes, who make 20 million. Effing Hippocrites who take a knee, why aren’t they giving half of their money to inner city kids.

    1. NFL and NBA are RACIST 80% of the players are BLACK!

  5. Looks like BLM and Antifa are expecting Sleepy and the Ho to deliver on their back room promises. They did help deliver the dead and illegal voters so now they want what they were promised! What will the liberal socialist demoncRATs do now their promises are being demanded to be paid?

  6. Okay media, liberals and democRATs these are your peeps, encouraged by you by your own silence. Now clean up your mess. They don’t care about you either and you will also be collateral damage if they have their way. Wake up!
