Warning Shots Followed by BLM Retreat
Well they kept pushing outside of their city/riot zones. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin Monday night, BLM Protesters were moving from the new normal downtown drama to the suburbs. This one they should cross off their list, and that list might grow, as homeowners demonstrate they won’t stand for it in their neighborhoods.
BLM people parked their “protester” caravan and started marching after dark on a night other people had to work in the morning. Some that live there decided to protect their peace and potentially their property from vandalism or worse threats. Warning shots, probably from a shotgun or rifle, echoed off the normally sleepy Milwaukee neighborhood streets. Stunned, as if they couldn’t process what was happening, BLM “leaders” told the rest they should get back into their cars.
“This dude is shooting at us!”Random BLM Militant
From the shaky video footage, they eventually got the message. Though no one was hit, they could just as easily have been. BLM encounters finally some civilian push-back, not defensive police actions or crowd control measures. This was a definitive “THOU SHALL NOT PASS!” message, and BLM, Antifa, or any other Marxist/Democrat-backed movement better take note. The cities may tolerate anarchists if they have weak or sympathetic leadership, but not the rest of the people that just want to be left alone.
UPDATE: In Kenosha it finally happened. Rioters and Arsonists pushed and pushed too hard by threatening to Moltov cocktail and club with a skateboard a young man defending local businesses. He was forced to defend his life and use his weapon. Two rioters are now dead, a third is injured.
Illinois resident 17 year old Kyle Rittenhouse was along to help defend Kenosha businesses from Antifa and BLM rioters. He now has been arrested and charged in the shooting. Given there is so much video evidence of his lawful self-defense, only a racially biased jury would convict. That would lead to more riots, but of course if he is released too soon, the same result.
More on suburban resistance to BLM/Antifa rioters as it develops.
