The mayor of Olympia, Washington, a progressive heroine and supporter of the “peaceful protests” that have taken place all across the country in the wake of George Floyd’s death, has gotten a rude awakening now that a group of protesters has vandalized her home.
Reacting to the vandalism of her home with graffiti reading “BLM,” the initials for the far-left group “Black Lives Matter,” Mayor Cheryl Selby described what happened as “domestic terrorism,” The Olympian reported. “It’s unfair,” she told the paper.
Before these radical, far-left protesters, who were anything but “peaceful,” showed up in her backyard, she was singing a different tune.
Just weeks ago, Selby made it clear that “the city of Olympia supports the peaceful protests that highlight the racial injustices black people continue to endure at the hands of police in the United States,” according to The Olympian.
The damage caused by these “peaceful protests” that spiraled out of control Friday night extended far beyond Selby’s home.
The same group of black-clad protesters responsible for what she called “domestic terrorism” also wreaked havoc on downtown Olympia by “burning flags, smashing windows, and spray painting businesses.”
Unfortunately, this rioting that often leads to lost lives and destroyed businesses has become a staple of everyday life in major American cities following the death of an unarmed African-American man, George Floyd, in police custody late last month.
