Antifa, BLM Demand Vengeance after Fatal Beating of Tyre Nichols by 5 Black Police Officers


(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) The domestic terror group Antifa issued a call for violent protests in New York City after the release Friday of video showing five Memphis police officers allegedly fatally beating Tyre Nichols, which sparked protests in the Tennessee city and put police forces across the country on alert for more protests and confrontations. 

The disturbingly shocking video of five black police officers — Tadarrius Bean, Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith — allegedly beating Nichols, who is also black, was released after all five officers had been charged Thursday with second-degree murder and kidnapping. An attorney for the Nichols family said the the officers used Nichols as a “human piñata” during the beating.

Unrest in Memphis began almost immediately after the video’s release, with protestors blocking a highway, while cities braced for violence and businesses closed early and boarded up shops for expected rioting and looting.

The Nichols’ family called for peaceful protest in honor of Tyre, but radical activists from Antifa and Black Lives Matter had other plans. A “call to action” issued by Antifa in New York City told rioters to “BURN IT ALL DOWN!” and provided tips for creating chaos.

The terrorist group’s list of items to bring for protesting included rocks, heavy objects, pipes, kerosene and lighters.

“Travel in large groups. Wear all black. Cover your face,” the groups instructed. “Bring a knife or other tool to free unlawfully detained comrades.”

BLM responded in kind with activist leader Hawk Newsom telling NYC crowds to “F— peace! F— peace! We ain’t never taking violence off the f—king table!”

While the officers involved in the fatal beating and Nichols are all black, and the heinous incident occurred in Memphis, that didn’t stop BLM provocateurs around the country from demanding retaliation for the systemic racism that fostered the police assault, or from a leftist media to echo the narrative.

Protests also erupted in Portland, Seattle and Los Angeles, where police warned residents, “Please be on the lookout for large groups and ANTIFA members.”

Memphis Police Chief Cerelyn Davis’s statement preceding the release of the video likely did little to quell any potential violent protest, said Jason Whitlock.

The police chief, who is also black, had called the beating everything from “incomprehensible” and “unconscionable” to “reckless,” “heinous” and “inhumane”.

“You’re going to see acts that defy humanity. You’re going to see a disregard for life,” Davis told CNN prior to the video’s release, while asking for peaceful protest. But the fuse had already been lit, Whitlock said.

“I think that those types of words, given the way the system is rigged now in terms of Antifa and these other terrorist groups that run around the country and promote chaos and violence,” Whitlock said. “I think she’s, like, sending out a bat signal” to BLM and Antifa rioters.
