When a group of black lives matter (BLM) protestors made their way into downtown Olympia in early June, they set fire to American flags, smashed out windows and spray painted local businesses.
The mayor of the city, Cheryl Selby, supported BLM and their “peaceful protests” even as they rioted through her city and threatened people’s lives. To show her dedication to BLM, Selby pathetically went down on her knees, bowing to the left-wing mob. This ritualistic display of weakness has become a nationwide phenomenon of cowardice, a mass hypnosis event that is gripping democrats and other local leaders as they kneel in cult-like fashion to violent Left-wing mobs.
According to the Daily Wire, a group of 50 BLM terrorists, dressed in black, marched toward City Hall and downtown Olympia, spewing trash from garbage cans and taking road construction signs, while causing damage to property. A second group of thirty followed behind and tried to put things back in order.
After getting their boots licked and their violence endorsed by the mayor, the left-wing BLM mob decided to take advantage of mayor Selby herself. Just a week later, they targeted her house and vandalized it, spraying painting BLM on her front door. As they vandalized her property, they chanted, “Abolish the police!” When they were done at Selby’s house, they headed back downtown where they continued to spray paint store fronts, street signs, lamp posts and sidewalks.
Now mayor Selby is waking up out of her stupor and changing her tone. She didn’t quite care when ordinary men and women were having their businesses destroyed. She backed down when BLM thugs stormed the streets, busted out windows, and burned the American flag, but now that her house has been attacked, she finally cares. In fact, she is now calling what the BLM did “domestic terrorism.”
“I’m really trying to process this,” Selby said. “It’s like domestic terrorism. It’s unfair,” she lamented.
She went on, “It hurts when you’re giving so much to your community. People have so little grace for each other right now. We need to have more grace,” Selby said.
She added that “it’s pretty traumatic when somebody comes to your home.”
