“Your Ancestors Are in Hell!” Black House Autonomous Zone Protestors Attacks National Guard
As Seattle City Officials finally prepared to dismantle the city’s autonomous zone known as Capitol Hill Occupied Protest (CHOP), another crowd had also set camp. This time, it’s in the streets of Washington, DC.
On Monday night, protesters attempted to set-up another autonomous zone called the “Black House Autonomous Zone” (BHAZ). The demonstrators took inspiration from Seattle’s fallen CHOP as they screamed and harassed National Guards who were at the scene.
In footage obtained from Breitbart News, one protester who was carrying a megaphone screamed, “All your ancestors are in hell anyway!” The person continued, “You think people can own people and beat them and rape them and sodomize them and they all go on to some better place? F**k no.”
Another protester claimed that they were not afraid of the Guards and that they have “nothing to lose.” In addition, a crowd targeted a black female officer, as they have collectively shamed and berated her. The group asked if the officer wanted a mask and that “Her ancestors are upset with her.” As they lumped around the officer, the group discouraged her from her job, saying that she needs to “internalize her trauma.”
Moreover, protesters also vandalized the historic St. Luke’s Episcopal Church as they sprayed the words “BHAZ.” The anarchists have also sprayed the facade of a boarded-up p Hay-Adams Hotel with their demands to dismantle the police and end systemic racism.
They have also attempted to topple down a statue of Andrew Jackson, which was situated at Lafayette Park near the White House. The guards tried to intervene as the crowd chanted, “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Andrew Jackson’s got to go” and tied a rope on the President’s bust.
As tension escalates, journalist, Daily Caller media reporter Shelby Talcott also recounted how protesters harassed her at the BHAZ and ordered her to stop filming.
In addition, NBC News anchor Andrea Mitchell and Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton also experienced harassment from a protestor. In a video that was posted by Henry Rodgers, Senior Congressional Correspondent from the Daily Caller, the two were in the middle of an interview at BHAZ.
However, a protester carrying a pink megaphone and clad in pink panties, a small top, and pink hose approached Mitchell and Norton. Unfortunately, she was able to grab the Democrat before her security officer could pull her away. Another security guard came and grappled the protester to keep her from harming the Congresswoman. As the protester was able to get away, the Congresswoman wondered, “Where’s the police when you need them?”
This came as a great contrast to the Democratic Party’s advocacy to dismantle and defund the police. Prominent left-wing politicians such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar had joined in the collective voices to remove the country’s law enforcement officers. In fact, in the Democrat-dominated city of Minneapolis, the City Council is abolishing one of the country’s largest police forces, the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD). Other Democrats vowed to take back their support, such as Mayor Bill De Blasio, who promised to take a $1 billion budget cut.
Fortunately, the authorities were able to de-escalate the situation and take control of the BHAZ. Tuesday morning, the crowd had dispersed.
