Movement ends with ridicule as demonstrators crash restaurants

blacklivesmatter interrupts brunch

Black Lives Matter protesters demonstrated against police brutality across New York on Sunday by interrupting white people eating brunch, a clear sign that the movement which, started with unrest in Ferguson, Missouri back in November, is beginning to lose steam.

Social justice warriors tweeted out photos of handfuls of demonstrators crashing cafes and restaurants with captions such as, “ATTN WHITE Man, I have no guilt disturbing your brunch. Its YOU that has no right to be here.”

Some even accused the white diners of being complicit in “genocide”.

Protesters read out the name of blacks killed by police officers in front of random white dudes drinking their morning coffee – because “racism” or something….

Another tweet asserted the protesters were “interrupting white supremacy one brunch at a time”.

It later emerged that one of the restaurants targeted was owned by Democrat and Hillary Clinton supporter Danny Meyer.

“Progressive activists are becoming increasingly desperate to maintain what they saw as momentum for their cause,” writes Derek Hunter. “But, as is the case with any dying movement, when the larger crowds dwindle, the only people left are the extremists and radicals who have no appeal to anyone outside of their fellow radicals.”

The hashtag #BlackBrunchNYC quickly devolved into scores of Twitter users poking fun at the participants.

One person responded to the ridicule by tweeting, “your people literally killed and raped my ancestors”.

As we have documented at every turn, what started out as a potentially important opportunity to shine a spotlight on police brutality has quickly disintegrated after leaders of the movement chose to make it all about race rather than police abuse, ostracizing millions of Americans who might otherwise have supported their cause.

From chanting for the deaths of police officers, to harassing parents and children in shopping malls, to blocking freeways, the Black Lives Matter demonstrators have only succeeded in bolstering support for police across the nation, discrediting opposition to the genuine problem of police brutality and the militarization of law enforcement.
