On Friday night, Black Lives Matter ‘protesters’ chased customers out of establishments and flipped over patrons’ dinner plates in Rochester, New York.
The restaurants decided to side with the ‘protesters’ since there wasn’t much monetary damage, and people are angry, they concluded.
As for terrorizing diners, they don’t seem to care.
The rioters were protesting Daniel Prude’s death after he was restrained by the police. Prude was black.
“Three restaurants that were affected by Friday night’s protests over the death of Daniel Prude released statements on Saturday acknowledging they did have some property damage while voicing support for the peaceful protestors,” News 10 WHEC reported Saturday.
On Instagram, restaurants Swan Dive, Ox and Stone, and Daily Refresher posted “nearly-identical statements,” the news station reported:
“Despite what videos might depict, we lost some glassware last night. You can not deny the anger and hurt our community is feeling right now. As always, the actions of a few agitators are amplified louder and louder as videos are shared and conclusions are drawn. We, now and always, stand with those standing against injustice.
Stay safe. Listen. Love.
The restaurants closed Saturday.
What a clown show. They’re standing against injustice by terrorizing people?
The following night, another Rochester business owner lost U-Haul trucks despite a sign outside his business: Proud to be Black Owned.
“Owner Jesse Barksdale says he was bounced out of bed to respond,” Charles Molineaux reported. “Livid over the destruction of his business.”
Mr. Barksdale reacted normally.
