  1. This pack of terrorist lead by the grand Pooh bah of terror are the most miserable, backwoods, hateful, racist fools in America. They always talk about blue lives matter, while they’re in DC killing them. Not one Black Lives Matter participant while in DC, caused any problems while they were protesting. When I watched this ridiculousness I thought look what white people are allowed to do. Then I started hearing, there were veterans, college educated people, not just poor people. Whoever was there were terrorist and fools. They should have shot as many people as possible. Or maybe the police should have let the republicans meet with them, let the proud babies should have been let into where they were since they think just alike. I’m sincerely sick of racist white folks, they’re WORTHLESS.Now why were they there, what don’t white people have? I hope they find them ALL, and they serve prison terms that are long and hard.


    • Theresa did you miss the part where BLM caused over 2 billion in damages over the summer and dozens of deaths? Brainwashed anti-white idiot you are.
