Black Lives Matter rioters have begun implementing a new tactic intended to intimidate and pressure passersby into bowing in acquiescence to their cause: storming restaurants and ordering patrons to hold up “black power” fists.
Patrons who refuse to comply with the mob’s demands are then harassed and threatened for a prolonged period of time, as demonstrated in the video below, where a group of Black Lives Matter activists who are not black surround a woman in her booth and scream the racist slogan “white silence is violence” in her face.

One of the screamers reportedly identified himself as a “journalist” for Deadspin: “Modiano, who had been yelling at Victor and moments later identified himself as a citizen journalist who writes for @Deadspin, told Victor he couldn’t understand why she was the only diner in the area who wouldn’t comply. “What was in you, you couldn’t do this?”
In another instance, a young white couple refused to give in to the screaming mob, even as other customers on a patio meekly raised their fists in compliance with Black Lives Matter dogma.
Even when a black woman approached to scream in the couple’s face, as the crowd flashed obscene gestures in the background, they remained calmly seated at their table and refused to give in.
The mob chimed in with cries of “mothaf**ka,” “racism,” white supremacy,” and “racist piece of s**t.”
BLM scumbags demand that diners at restaurant raise their fists for black power. Brave young couple retains dignity, refuses. Be that couple. Don’t be the embarrassing mustachioed coward to the right who has forfeited his dignity for all time.
