Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Antifa showed up in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday for the anniversary of last year’s white nationalist rally. When there were no white nationalists who showed up, these protesters decided to turn their attention to the police officers at the event, the Washington Post reported:
“Confusion over an extraordinary police presence on the anniversary of a violent and deadly white nationalist rally turned into anger Saturday night as hundreds of black-clad protesters marched through the streets surrounding the University of Virginia here, screaming at police and calling for an end to white supremacy.
“The protesters gathered around the historical Rotunda, where a year ago white supremacists had shouted anti-Semitic slogans and carried torches, and chanted slogans of their own — against the police, against white supremacy, and against the University of Virginia.
“‘Last year they came with torches,’ said a large banner in front of a monument of Thomas Jefferson. ‘This year they come with badges.'”
Comparing police officers to white nationalists might be one of the smartest things I’ve ever seen from BLM.

This is more of the same from the left, fear-mongering targeted towards police officers, hostility towards the media and the inability to peacefully protest.
How is there supposed to be a healthy relationship between law enforcement and the ordinary public if the left keeps comparing police to neo-nazis? It’s time for groups like Antifa and BLM to grow up and accept that the world owes them nothing.
