Black Lives Matter protestors took to the street earlier this week to protest the death of George Floyd, an unarmed African American man that died when a white police officer held Floyd down with a knee to the neck. As time goes on, one thing is becoming more clear: the violence and riots that are taking place are being carried out by white members of Antifa. Attorney General William Barr on Saturday confirmed that when he said it was Antifa that hijacked these peaceful protests and started the riots.
There have been quite a few instances where black protestors have attempted to stop white Antifa members from looting and vandalizing buildings.
WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE
Two black women confronted two white women who were spraypainting "Black Lives Matter" on the front of a Starbucks building.
"Hey! Hey! Don't do that! Please don't do that!" the off-camera woman can be heard saying.
The Antifa member had a pathetic response. "Don't police how people express themselves."
The black woman said that no one asked them to spray paint the side of a building, especially in the name of black people.
"They gonna blame that on us!" the woman behind the camera shouted. "Y'all are part of the problem."
She reminded viewers that spraypainting buildings and causing destruction isn't "part of our message."
"When you see stuff like that you supposed to stand up and say something. Don't spray on these people's buildings. ... That's not helping nothing," she said.

In Baltimore, a black woman pleaded with white men to stop causing destruction and chaos because Black Lives Matter would be blamed for what took place.
The white man's response was nothing shy of astonishing.
"They're going to kill you anyway!" he shouted back.
"They're not killing you. You have no right to tell us –" she said before being cut off.

White guy's response: "They're going to kill you anyway!" https://t.co/aL3hB0lV4i
It's worth noting, by the way, that restraint by her and others is so far carrying the day, and night. Baltimore is--so far--a totally different story than other cities, or 2015. https://t.co/HzAeuFRQpq— Alec MacGillis (@AlecMacGillis) May 31, 2020
Denver School Board member and community activist Tay Anderson stopped white teenagers from spraying graffiti on the side of a brick wall.
"Stop! Stop! This is not what we want! Stop!" he said as he pushed them away.
A woman in Oakland followed a group of white people covered in all black that were destroying and defacing buildings.
"They're the ones that are starting everything. They're the ones starting every single demonstration out here that is violent, they started that s**t off," the black woman said in an Instagram live video. "It's just the rest of these stupid a** mother f**kers who follow so that's why there's so much damage."
"How does that benefit you? How does that benefit you?" she asked rhetorically. "How does this benefit anybody?"
At that time the group of Antifa thugs set fire to one of the buildings.
"Oh my god. They burned it," she said with a gasp. "They're f**king burning s**t! They're burning the f**king city down for real!"
Confirmation in Oakland, that again, it was white people destroying shit and egging people on. pic.twitter.com/t2WPz5UG1s— ????Black????Aziz????aNANsi???? (@Freeyourmindkid) May 30, 2020
A Black Lives Matter protestor named Asia shared a video of multiple white men wearing all black breaking into the Walgreens in Downtown Oakland. They were using crowbars to pull back the boards from the windows so they could be smashed in.
I was at Downtown Oakland protests a little while ago. Let me say something; the people breaking glass, breaking into windows & starting fires were WHITE men wearing all black. They had hammers and walkie talkies. They were organized. BLM protestors did not start the violence! pic.twitter.com/I2HOdzFoHd— Asia (@AsiaJannelll) May 30, 2020
There was also video evidence of an Antifa member using a tractor to demolish buildings.

A group of white people covered in black clothing were seen breaking or attempting to break windows. They were using numerous items, like skateboards, crowbars, their hands and feet.
A black woman with a microphone was almost in tears as she begged them to stop.
"Stop! Stop! Please stop!" she pleaded.
Antifa ignored her and continued on with their destruction.
My heart hurts watching this. I don't know what their motive is or who organized these white people to come out, but they don't care about us. That one woman is about to burst into tears and they won't even look at her... pic.twitter.com/35Hz5ldAaC— ????Black????Aziz????aNANsi???? (@Freeyourmindkid) May 30, 2020
Community organizers in Minneapolis confronted Antifa members.
"We're going to keep our social distance and we not gonna allow someone in the crowd to throw bulls**t and we feel the bulk of that. We not allowing that no more," he told the crowd. "That's the reality of what we're dealing with right now. Like I said to all my white brothers and sisters: we appreciate y'all being out here and supporting us but this is not y'all's space. This is not your space. Period."
He looked back at the cops behind him.
"We don't need this bulls**t right here because the reality is when all this s**t is said and done when we wake up we still going to be black in America," he explained. "That's not nothing against none of y'all. ... We not gonna let y'all out there causing chaos and confusion. It's just not gonna happen."

One of the protest organizers In Detroit told Antifa not to destroy police cars. The crowd began to chant.
"You're not in charge! You're not in charge! You're not in charge!"
More on last night in Detroit: I took these photos of the protest before my phone died in the evening. This was maybe 1-2 hours before things started to pop off. Some protesters were screaming obscenities at officers at this point, police weren’t really reacting to them. pic.twitter.com/Pd2ZkCWGml— Angie Jackson (@AngieJackson23) May 30, 2020
Several people were trying to tell the group not to mess with the police cars and not to touch officers. When I saw an organizer try to put an end to it, people chanted at him, “you’re not in charge.” pic.twitter.com/Bds2tLnDY1— Angie Jackson (@AngieJackson23) May 30, 2020
Antifa is a group of vile, disgusting people who do nothing but cause chaos and destruction. They have no regard for human life, safety or property. Their only focus is on destroying things around them, all in the name of "anti-fascism" – or at least that's what they say.
Conservatives have sounded the alarm on Antifa and their horrendous ways for years. Almost a year ago reporter Andy Ngo was attacked. Antifa threw cement "milkshakes" at his head. He suffered a concussion and was hospitalized. But very few people were upset or alarmed. They brushed it off as a one-off occurrence, not something that has become all too common.
These people were waiting for a prime opportunity to trash America and they found their opportunity. Not only can they blame their destruction on Black Lives Matter protestors but they can also get away with covering their faces because of the coronavirus pandemic. They chose to cover their faces to keep their identity hidden, a tactic they relied on, even before the coronavirus. This pandemic just provided cover for them to destroy communities.
Democrats allowed this chaos to ensure because they were sympathetic to these thugs. Can we all wake up now and realize we have something in common: we don't want to see our communities trashed, destroyed and set on fire. These are outside people who are being brought in to cause havoc... and they're succeeding.
It's time for those who were once sympathetic to Antifa to finally speak out and denounce the group.
