(TheFreedomFlag)- If you thought the Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots of 2020 were over now that Joe Biden is the president, think again. Just this week, more than 30 people were arrested in New York City after Black Lives Matter extremists clashed with the police at City Hill Park.
The demonstration of far-left activists, campaigning for what they call “racial justice,” began at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and crossed the Brooklyn Bridge. They gathered at City Hall Park, where they became violently tussling with police officers.
The march was organized to commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, though their behavior was certainly not something King endorsed during his time as an activist.
According to a spokesman from the New York Police Department, activists used bottles as projectiles and vandalized property during their march. One captain from the NYPD was struck in the head with one of the bottles.
Hardly respectful of King’s legacy, is it?

Witnesses of the unrest say that police officers ordered the BLM marchers onto the sidewalk, before making arrests in the crowd for violent misconduct.
Despite the action, some attendees chose to portray police officers as agitators at the demonstration. Egypt Staley, a 22-year-old member of the Justice Committee, said that the police officers “charged multiple times” and that “some people were just being grabbed off the sidewalk.”
Staley also said that police officers were “pushing, shoving folks, pummelling people,” but failed to acknowledge the unrest coming from the marching crowd and the intimidation caused to passers-by. Not to mention the vandalism.
On January 6, a small contingent of Trump supporters broke free from a peaceful protest and stormed the Capitol Building. The unrest resulted in several deaths and, since that date, both the media and Congressional Democrats have said that the president was complicit in the violence and that Trump supporters are a danger to the United States.
Will the Democrats stay silent on Black Lives Matter violence and criminality through 2021?
