How to Make Enemies and Not Influence People

The Hill has video of the BLM crowd surrounding patrons at an outdoor restaurant demanding proof of solidarity.  This being Washington, most put their fists in the air to make the scene go away, but one refused:

When the woman refused, she was surrounded by a number of protesters with their fists raised in the air who screamed and berated her for not doing so. 

“I felt I was under attack,” the woman told Washington Post reporter Fredrick Kunkle, adding that she had been marching with protesters for several weeks and was “very much with them,” but didn’t feel right about being coerced by the group to display her support. 

 Looking at the video, I can see why most people submitted cowered; when this many angry people surround you this close, the fear of violence is very strong.  Even a gun is not useful at this point because the rest of the pack will beat you to death.  I do think a few of these thugs getting shot might get the message through.

In the meantime, these incidents are likely increasing visits to neo-Nazi websites by people who might otherwise have found their message absurd.  Keep at it BLM; you can give Trump a huge victory, and create thousands of new skinheads.
