These are a few scenes form the protest held in La Mesa, CA by Black Lives Matter terrorists on August 1, 2020. Just two months earlier on May 30, 2020, Black Lives Matter rioted in La Mesa, looted a number of businesses, burned vehicles and burned three major buildings, including two banks. There was a large group of probably about 150 concerned citizens on hand this time, many veterans, to support the police and make sure this so-called “protest” did not devolve again into extreme violence, mass vandalism and arson. It is difficult to say how many were there, because many were scattered around town to protect private property.
I can’t honestly call these events “protests”, because after such lawlessness and destruction, an event that might otherwise be characterized as a legitimate “protest” is now an act of intimidation, aimed at City government and the Police Department. They attacked the police station in the earlier riot and most probably would have burned it down, if they had gained control of it, as Black Lives Matter had just burned down the police station in Minneapolis and took over a police station in Seattle. It seems the intent has been to do in La Mesa what they have done in Portland and Seattle.
There were about 200-300 BLM terrorists present. This is actually a movement of far-left, white, anti-American extremists, they generally have only a few token black people, at least in this part of the country. Many, probably the majority of them were clueless young women, who think it is cool to be part of a revolutionary, terrorist movement.
Black Lives Matter takes it inspiration from the Weathermen and Black Liberation Army domestic terrorist groups of the 1960’s and 1970’s. However, it is camouflaged as a protest movement, which makes it harder for authorities to investigate and shut them down. Today’s terrorists hide behind these naive young people, using them as a human shields and claiming to be “peaceful protesters”.
Hundreds of policemen on hand from law enforcement agencies throughout the County of San Diego. To counter Black Lives Matter were 100-200 local citizens, many of them veterans, who gathered mainly at the American Legion Post across the street form the police station. Some of them were scattered around town to keep watch and some stayed until very late at night to make sure the terrorists did not come back.
The main contingent of concerned citizens was organized on the “Defend East County” (DEC) Facebook group and their effort was largely successful. If there had not been the potential for a serious clash between the two groups, probably not so many policemen would have been called in. If there had been no opposition, the terrorists would have probably had their way again, at least to some extent.
They are obviously trying to intimidate the City via the threat of violence and destruction to do what they demand. Using violence and intimidation to achieve a political objective is the definition of terrorism.
It seems that Blacks Lives Matter has been attempting to do in La Mesa what they have already done in Minneapolis, Portland and Washington State, occupy and control it by terrorist threat. La Mesa is a majority white, liberal suburb. 60-65% voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. The police department is relatively small and not much experienced in dealing with large social disturbances typical of Black Lives Matter. Due to the majority of liberal voters there is pressure on the political leaders in La Mesa to not take the measures necessary to deal effectively with the lawlessness and violence of the activists of Black Lives Matters.
After BLM torched La Mesa, the more mentally-sick, liberal townspeople of La Mesa actually put up pro-BLM posters and murals all around town and right in front of the burned-out ruins that BLM created. It was a very pathetic sight to see.
One of the main people involved in organizing the destruction in La Mesa had actually threatened the City Council in 2018 to burn National City, if they did not meet her demands. Her name is “Tasha Williamson” and she actually ran for Mayor of San Diego this year. In spite of her high profile and the presence of a number of reporters at that meeting in National City, none of our local news organizations reported her threat to burn down National City. This is how sick society has become, at least in California. A terrorist threat against a city does not even get reported here.
