*Originally published August 2020* As if walking down a street in the United States chanting “Death to America” wasn’t bad enough, these Black Lives Matter hooligans decided to take things a step further.
They started fires. Smashed cars. Bashed buildings.
You know, all the things to show just how peaceful they truly are.
Rioters among the crowd also set fires and broke into several businesses while vandalizing others, according to police. Video of the protest along with the anti-American chant went viral across Twitter on Sunday.
This wasn’t widely reported. On Wednesday night, around 700 black bloc militants and their supporters rampaged through Oakland, Cal. They chanted “death to America” while starting fires and smashing cars and buildings. pic.twitter.com/A5512gCBzU

But wait! There’s more…

Here’s just a little something to keep in mind about BLM…
We were forced to chant “death to America” when I was at school in Tehran. Now, the Left chant it in America. https://t.co/1VydmICdLx
