On Monday, banners were dropped by members of Black Lives Matter and Antifa during the Super Bowl LII’s media event warning that “#WeReadyWeComin.”
As the two large banners were dropped inside, hundreds of leftist protesters marched in the streets and blocked traffic surrounding the event at the Xcel Energy Center. Many of the demonstrators have formed an Antifa-aligned group calling themselves the “Super Bowl Anti-Racist Anti-Corporate Coalition.”
According to their Facebook page, the group is planning to hold protests every day leading up to the main event. “Their plans will culminate on Sunday, February 4, with a 3pm rally at Peavey Park (Franklin & Chicago Ave), followed by a march to US Bank Stadium,” the page states.
“The banner drop and rally/march marks the first day of the week of protests surrounding SB52. The Super Bowl brings with it a SEAR-I designation, which has resulted in the Minnesota’s largest security operation in the history of the state,” the anarchist website Unicorn Riot reports.
The National Guard, multiple federal agencies, and law enforcement from across the nation have been in Minneapolis since the 26th in preparation for the sporting event
VIDEO: 7 BLACK LIVES MATTER PROTESTERS WERE ARRESTED DURING A BLACK FRIDAY PROTEST AT ST. LOUIS GALLERIA
RICHMOND HEIGHTS • The St. Louis Galleria closed for about half an hour Friday afternoon after seven people were arrested during a Black Friday protest.
The protesters arrived shortly after 2 p.m. at the shopping mall. They walked through chanting, “Shut it down.” Some stores closed their doors and pulled down their security gates, in some cases trapping customers inside.
A large police presence could be seen around the area.
Richmond Heights police announced that the protesters should disperse by 2:25 p.m., or they would start making arrests. When police moved in to arrest one person, Franks questioned the officers, and he was thrown to the floor and his hands tied behind his back.
The seven arrested, one woman and six men, were handcuffed and lined up near the White House/Black Market store on the second floor of the mall.
The mall closed about 2:40 p.m. but was open again by 3:20 p.m after most protesters left the area.
Look at that! Russian firm bought more than 3,000 Facebook ads for Hillary Clinton, Black Lives Matter, Bernie Sanders and Jill Stein last 2016 election. Hey, witch hunt counsel Robert Mueller, why don’t you look this way for your Russian collusion?
Former NFL Super Bowl Champion and author Burgess Owens was a guest speaker at Phyllis Schlafly Forum this weekend in St. Louis, Missouri. Owens is the author of Liberalism or How to Turn Good Men into Whiners, Weenies and Wimps.
What’s happening here is actually a purposeful process to divide us. Those who like to call everybody as racists, keep in mind, they’re the racists and they will continue to divide us with their negative focus… We win this thing together. That’s what America is all about… Those are the same people who could care less about the black people killed in Chicago.
NFL wants an empty stadium. ESPN, NFL and NBA want to politicize sports but the president cannot respond to their dumb tantrums.
Shaun King tweets:
Black Lives Matter leader and activist, now claims that he has talked to over 75 NFL players who are all planning on protesting the national anthem before their teams’ games Sunday.
This is after President Trump took aim directly at NFL players who chose to “disrespect the flag” and protest the national anthem during a speech at an Alabama rally on Friday and in tweets over the weekend.
( The Blaze ) Owners of several St. Louis restaurants found “Whites Only” stickers placed on their establishments’ doors and windows Tuesday morning, StLToday reported — an act that’s left the proprietors disturbed.
“I was hit with a nasty surprise,” Qayum Mohammed, owner of Afghan restaurant Sameem, told the outlet. “I thought ‘Wow, that’s ignorant.’”
Mohammed was also concerned over why his establishment was targeted, StLToday said — until he learned that stickers were placed on at least three other restaurants in the Grove, a well-known and diverse entertainment district.
“I was very relieved,” he told the outlet.
Surveillance video shows a group walking by a restaurant with one of them placing a sticker on the front door and then the group continuing down the sidewalk, KMOV-TV reported.
BLACK LIVES MATTER DERAIL JAMES COMEY HOWARD UNIVERSITY SPEECH: ‘GET OUT JAMES COMEY! YOU AIN’T MY HOMIE’
Black Lives Matter protesters during James Comey’s speech at Howard University:
- Get out James Comey! You ain’t my homie!”
- “Black lives they matter here!”
- “F— James Comey”
- “No justice, no peace!”
- Protesters sang, “We Shall Not Be Moved”
From Fox News:
Noisy protesters shouted and chanted over James Comey on Friday as he attempted to deliver a convocation address at Howard University, forcing him to delay his remarks and then practically drowning out the rest of his speech.The protest started as soon as the former FBI director took the podium at the historically black college in Washington, D.C.
Protesters raised their right fists in the air and chanted, “We shall not be moved.” They also said, “F— James Comey” and “No justice, no peace.”
Comey was unable to speak at first due to the disruption. After several minutes, Comey tried to begin. “I hope you’ll stay and listen to what I have to say. … I listened to you for five minutes,” he said, before pausing again.
After several more minutes of protests, Comey launched into his prepared speech – which, ironically, was about how the rest of the world is often “too noisy” to take time to reflect, whereas Howard University represents an “island.”
Comey had to raise his voice throughout the address as the chanting persisted. The protesters later said they were with the group HU Resist and were protesting “state-sanctioned violence.”
The rowdy scene marked a rough start for Comey at Howard, where he’s joined the faculty as a lecturer.
