White Supremacists With Giant Guns "Protest" the NAACP

This actually happened and it's terrifying.

BREAKING: Armed White Supremacists Storm NAACP Office in Houston

"Storm" is click-baity because the group was too small to really storm anything, but they did have assault weapons. You can see photos of them openly holding giant fucking guns at their sides. According to a representative with a "Donald Trump 16" hat, this is because they need to "defend themselves."

None of this makes any sense and I'm sure I don't need to explain why, but here I go. These fucking racist white people seem to have completely missed the fact that Black Lives Matter protests never involve guns except those that the police carry and occasionally those that racist white instigators bring. Black people can't openly carry firearms in this country at all, let alone in a BLM protest. They'd be shot on sight by police who would be immediately called in by terrified white people, open carry laws be damned.

These facts completely escape these racists who decided to target the local NAACP building, assuming the NAACP and BLM are either the same thing or directly and officially associated. They're demanding that the NAACP reign in "their people" because someone decided to shoot at cops in Dallas that one time, despite the fact that my fellow white people are coooooonstantly demanding that black people refrain from blaming "all white people" for the actions of individual racist murderers, cops or otherwise. And we definitely can't associate the KKK with Donald Trump's campaign despite their open support and endorsement of Leatherface.

Also, BLM and black people in general haven't burned down entire cities, but we white people sure have.

And don't give us any of that "we're not here to instigate" bullshit. Yes, you are. You're not out there to protest your rights. At the very least, you're there as terrorists to scare and intimidate the community and the NAACP. You standing out there with your giant guns, especially considering the white tendency to be extremely trigger happy at the sight of black people plus your ability to get away with killing them - that's an intimidate tactic. That's a threat.

Lastly, I want to point out that I mean "white supremacists" in a direct and literal sense. One of the women there is clearly holding a sign that says "14 words." If you didn't know, this is white supremacist/neo nazi code referring to a slogan containing 14 words that was uttered by vile white supremacist David Lane: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”

It's terrifying that literal white supremacists are becoming this bold again. We need to send them scuttling back into the shadows like the cockroaches they are. This means refusing to tolerate them.
