VIDEO: Activists Terrorize Seattle Neighborhoods, Demand White People Give Up Homes

Seattle, WA – For almost two weeks, Black Lives Matter protesters in Seattle have been marching into residential neighborhoods late every night to demand that the white people living there give up their homes to black people.

Just after midnight on Friday morning, residential Seattleites trying to get sleep for work the next day were blown out of bed by yet another demonstration.

“Out of your homes and into the streets,” a white woman screamed through a megaphone, and then the rest of the group echoed her chant.

When protesters spotted homeowners who went to see what was happening in front of their homes, they shined flashlights into the windows and doorways of the homes and stopped to address those residences specifically, the video showed.

The chants changed to suit the situation and protesters ordered residents “off of their balconies” and “out of their windows,” too.

The ringleader encouraged the protesters following her to make more noise to wake people up.

“March with us! March with us!” protesters chanted at residents standing in their windows watching the mayhem below on the street in yet another video.

One video showed an older man who confronted the protesters waking up his neighborhood.

“You’re on the wrong block!” he told them.

“Are you saying black people only care about free stuff?” a protester asked him.

“Boy did you take that out of context,” the man laughed at the protester, shaking his head.

“There are no black people here,” the man told the protesters, gesturing at the mob made up of mostly white protesters.

The man tried to engage the protesters but they drowned him out with Black Lives Matter chants, the video showed.

He finally gave up and walked away from the mob who continued to march down his block.

“No emotional vampires here today,” one protester declared through the megaphone as he left.

Protesters found themselves facing off with angry business owners in some parts of the city while Seattle police were notably absent in the videos of the confrontations.

Neighborhood residents and businesses used vehicles to block streets, one video showed.

One of the protesters tried to get the man to move his car by reasoning “we’re already here,” but he just leaned back on the car and shook his head.

A man told the guy with the car that he didn’t have the right facts and evidence and the guy cut him off.

“No. You’ve got the City Council on your side. Why do you have to keep bothering everybody’s neighborhood?” the guy asked, and pointed to a nearby apartment.

He told the protesters the resident there was black and “he can’t stand this,” the video showed.

In another video of the same incident, protesters backed the guy up against his car and assaulted him.

Additional videos of the residential marches in recent days showed  protesters banging on pots and pans to wake people up.

“Do you know that you are living in a historically black neighborhood right now? Do you know that? Do you know that before your white a– came here it was all black people? Do you know this? Do you know this? Do you know this?” a protester demanded in a video posted to twitter that showed him screaming at residents who appeared in windows and doorways.

Then the protesters informed the sleepy homeowners that they were only living there because black people had been kicked out of their homes so the neighborhood could be gentrified.

“Now do something about it,” the protesters demanded in the video.

“Open your wallet. Open your wallet,” a woman chimed in over a megaphone.

“How do you plan to fix it? Because you’re living on black people’s land right now,” the protesters continued, calling the residents of the community “gentrifiers.”

“Give black people back their homes!” another women began shrieking in the video. “You’re sitting there comfortably — comfortable as f—k as if they didn’t help gentrify this neighborhood! I used to live in this neighborhood, and my family was pushed out, and you’re sitting up there having a good time with your other white friends!”

“You work for Amazon, don’t you?” the protester yelled at one resident as that video ended.

Another video of the unrest showed what happened to a business owner after he called the police because protesters had vandalized his building and smashed his windows.

“You’re being racist, you’re being racist,” a protester told the business owner. “Check your privilege, check your privilege.”

Then he told the man to “go back to your gentrification business” and screamed more profanities at him, the video showed.

“This was never your neighborhood. This was never your neighborhood,” the protester ranted through a megaphone.

The business owner refused to engage with the protesters and they screamed at him as he walked away, the video showed.

“Yeah, we’ll make sure to support you,” the protester continues. “Hey look, we don’t know what happened, we ain’t seen s–t, we don’t know s–t. You better hope we don’t find out though. That’s not a threat.”

“That’s a promise,” somebody else yelled.

The video showed that at least one protesters was arrested for vandalism in that incident.
