LA Mayor Surrounded by Hostile #BlackLivesMatter Protesters – Chaos Descends [Video]

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti was besieged by hostile #BlackLivesMatter protesters at his first community meeting last night. Chaos descended as the mayor tried to relate and bond with the black communities of South LA. Fail. The meeting was held at Holman United Methodist Church and it is estimated about 400 attended, with about 50 protesters in the mix. Garcetti started speaking and the protesters stood up and turned their backs on him. Towards the end of the event, protesters rushed the podium at the town hall event. That was when the mayor decided to exit stage left. As he tried to reach his car surrounded by heavy security, he was ringed by angry protesters who swarmed him. They were chanting for the police chief to be fired. One protester jumped on top of the mayor’s car.

According to KNBC-TV, Black Lives Matter protesters rushed the podium at the town hall event, which was being held to discuss economic opportunity and community safety. As Garcetti attempted to leave the meeting, protesters surrounded his car and continued to chant.

“If you are interested in having a civil conversation, we are going to ask you to remain here; if not, I am going to ask you to leave,” the Rev. Kelvin Sauls of the Holman United Methodist Church told the protesters inside the meeting.

Garcetti required a heavy Los Angeles police presence as he attempted to leave the town hall in his car. As he was leaving, one protester went so far as to climb onto the hood of his car.

“The Black community has something to say to the mayor we want him to hear, as well as us engaging in his responses,” Black Lives Matter organizer Malina Abdullah told KNBC.

“Tonight, we had hundreds of South LA residents attend a community meeting  — leaders, business owners, mothers and children, who took time out of their evening to discuss the critical issues that matter most to all of us,” Garcetti said in a statement. “I am disappointed that our conversation was cut short when there is so much work for us to do together to make our neighborhoods stronger and safer. I believe in our City and my commitment to our shared concerns continues, stronger than ever.”

“The mayor has neglected, disrespected and abused the black community for far too long,” Melina Abdullah, a professor of Pan African Studies at Cal State L.A. and organizer for Black Lives Matter, said at the meeting. “We are here today because this is real for us. This is not a political game. This is not about your reelection. This is about our lives.” This could have gotten very ugly, very fast. It was chaotic and violent. Look for this to get worse. More and more radicals seem to be crawling out of the Marxist woodwork. This wimpy mayor is just asking for it… At one point the mayor delivered a disarming response to one protester who complained about the deeply rooted causes of violence in black neighborhoods. “Let me say, you’re right, your analysis,” Garcetti said. “I hate this back-and-forth we hear nationally, where people say black lives matter and politicians say all lives matter. Black lives matter in a unique way, and you and I see eye to eye on this.” What a liberal moron. He added: “If you just try to say all lives matter, you write people out of history. You write slavery out of history. You write oppression and violence out of history. You write racism and lynching out of history. So I get why it is important — just hear me out for one second — you’re right.” At one point, Garcetti tried to assuage his antagonists by encouraging them to vent: “You can boo,” he said. “You can do whatever you want.” Gee, I’m sure they would have agreed with him as they beat him to death or knifed him or whatever. Garcetti will just keep pandering to the masses until they take him down. The #BlackLivesMatter thugs don’t care what he says to them… if they don’t get their way, they’ll get their violence on. This was just a taste of that.
